Monday, May 19, 2014      0 comments

Busy weakend...After barely recovering from my week-long vacation in Hawaii (fabulous!), had another major event, my granddaughter's graduation from college. The three of us (DH and I, and son) drove down to Baltimore for the ceremony, arriving ... Read more

The daughter, son-in-law and three grandkids visited over the weekend, arriving Thursday and leaving Sunday evening. The women (me, daughter and college age gd) spent Friday shopping and after returning, all of us had SaladWorks salads or pizza... Read more
A Decent Weekend
Monday, April 07, 2014      0 comments

It was a more interesting weekend than usual--starting with the adult piano recital/luncheon on Friday, where I played the first movement of Mozart's 12th Sonata, with pretty good results…only a few flubs that maybe the audience didn't notice. M... Read more
Hello, Retirement
Saturday, March 29, 2014      2 comments

Looks like I'm officially "retired" now--21 years after I "retired" from teaching! Thursday I sent over my last paid newsletter and with that closed my business. Of course I am still available to do pro bono work for groups that are important to... Read more
The Exercise Dilemma
Monday, March 24, 2014      0 comments

I finally got back to doing some classes at the gym: zumba on Friday and the 85-minute yoga class on Sunday. If only I could stick to a schedule! Trouble is, I get bored or impatient with doing the same thing multiple times--or is it just lazine... Read more
Another Snowy Day in NJ--So What Else is New?
Monday, March 17, 2014      3 comments

Yes, we woke up to about 3-4 inches of snow yet again, and here it is March 17. Oh, Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! DH's favorite meal for this day is of course corned beef and cabbage. I thought we could go out for it but alas it doesn'... Read more
Kitchen Danger Zone
Sunday, November 10, 2013      3 comments

Well, I messed up the back of my thumb yesterday...was replacing the big fruit-vegetable drawer on the refrigerator (it's a separate compartment which has its own place above the freezer drawer) and caught the thumb as the drawer was falling bac... Read more
Oh, Those Choices!
Tuesday, October 15, 2013      2 comments

Yesterday, Oct. 14, was a beautiful fall day...one to relish. I observed the "official" Columbus Day with my good friend Terri (Terri 289) by taking a long, leisurely walk at a state park--leisurely to accommodate her recovery from knee surgery-... Read more
Weekend Plans Go Awry
Friday, September 20, 2013      2 comments

Plans have changed for the weekend. Daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren were to visit so that they could go to son-in-law's mother's (who lives nearby) to help her clean her basement in anticipation of her move to an apartment. But I'm ... Read more
Does Anybody Out There Watch "Breaking Bad"?
Monday, September 16, 2013      2 comments

What a show...I've been hooked on it since last year when I first started watching it and then did a lot of catch-up viewing of previous seasons via Netflix. It's now in its sixth and final season, and last night's episode was a mind-blower--one... Read more
Indian Summer
Thursday, September 12, 2013      1 comments

Yesterday I was determined to get some swimming in even though I'm waiting for the propane people to re-fill the tank for the pool heater/generator . Even though the mercury was in the low nineties I approached the water with some trepidation as... Read more
Gorgeous Day in South Jersey
Saturday, June 22, 2013      2 comments

Yes, it's the second straight gorgeous day--or is it the third? Don't know but it's wonderful. The pool is sparkling, the flowers are blooming and it's all remarkable considering the nasty, stormy weather we've endured lately. We'll have a ... Read more
Pondering a New Goal
Thursday, February 21, 2013      3 comments

What, me run another race? At my age? I'm thinking of it. Just by way of background, in my younger days I became an avid amateur runner, about the time I turned 40. I did all kinds of races and even completed six marathons. But latel... Read more
"Smash" and a Diet Change
Wednesday, February 06, 2013      2 comments

I've been waiting for the new season of "Smash" to begin, since I enjoyed its debut season last year, and last night it finally did. It's the drama/musical on NBC that traces the creation of a Broadway show and all its personal entanglemen... Read more
Active Saturday
Saturday, February 02, 2013      2 comments

I started the day by going to a zumba class at the gym, taught by dynamo instructor Janelle, who I think must be a professional dancer in her secret life...energetic workout. The club has added spinning to its workout classes; only trouble ... Read more
