Best ever piece of exercise advice
Sunday, January 27, 2013      5 comments

At least, for older people wanting to improve mobility and maintain independence, it is. And it's deceptively simple - what you do is to stand up from a sitting position without using your arms to help. It sounds simple, and it is simple... Read more
Fresh local veggies again
Saturday, January 26, 2013      1 comments

I went to the Farmer's Market today after a hiatus of about a month (because of lack of $$) and bought some nice looking veggies. I can't wait to get back to eating lots of veggies. Mostly, the ones in the grocery store don't appeal to me. ... Read more
My dog doesn't belong in SP
Saturday, January 26, 2013      2 comments

I have a dog who would be a disgrace to SP. She is an unapologetic glutton. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if there were a hog somewhere in her ancestry. She loves, loves, loves to eat. Now, I am a mean doggie mom, because I don't want her... Read more
Big Surprise of the Year (maybe the decade)
Tuesday, January 22, 2013      3 comments

Every now and again one of my kids totally, totally surprises me. Today, it was my youngest, when he asked me, quite out of the blue, if we could go to the art museum this evening. I'm surprised my jaw isn't still stuck to the floor. Then, ta... Read more

Health Issues
Friday, January 18, 2013      1 comments

Well, I haven't been feeling well lately...actually, I have had pain in my stomach. As a cancer survivor, of course my first thought is that the cancer has returned. :-( So, much as I hate going to the doctor, I did. As a form of hopeful deni... Read more

My 11-year old was reading about some African countries, and he was reading off the names to me. First he said, "Niger," then he paused and said, "Mobe-a-squeak." I said, "Do you think you might mean Mozambique?" His big brother and sis... Read more
One of Those Days at Work
Sunday, January 06, 2013      1 comments

So...the first mass I only had one child to babysit. He's a great kid, really, but very high energy, and he always wants to play with someone. Someone today was I. And, being all boy, his idea of play is usually pretend guns and swords, so I ... Read more
Root Veggies
Tuesday, January 01, 2013      5 comments

Trying some root veggies tonight for dinner. I am cooking kohlrabi and celery root in boiling water, and I will puree them in the food processor afterward. I can't wait to find out how they will taste. I may not like them, but the only way to... Read more
I've Fallen, and I.........Can Get Up!"
Tuesday, January 01, 2013      1 comments

A few years ago it became plain to me that all the agility I once had was totally gone. In particular, when I was about eight months pregnant with my youngest, I had to get something out from under the hospital bed (pre-eclampsia led to a prolo... Read more
Christmas recap
Wednesday, December 26, 2012      3 comments

I already typed a blog of this topic earlier today, and it got swallowed by my computer somehow. Awfully frustrating...usually I give up when this happens, but I decided to try again. Mostly it was a good Christmas, but unfortunately I did... Read more

I think I am coming down with something that may even be the flu. I am feeling achy, very, very tired, and also shivery. Late on Christmas eve is not the time to be getting sick. I can't let my kids down in the morning. I am going to take so... Read more
Oh, Christmas Tree...
Saturday, December 22, 2012      3 comments

A couple of years ago, I discovered that, if one waits until late in the month, Lowe's will have their remaining cut Christmas trees on sale for half off. Their trees aren't that expensive to begin with, and cheap is one price that appeals to m... Read more

Adventures in Daycare
Wednesday, December 19, 2012      2 comments

Well, I didn't think I would have anything worth blogging about today. I guess one never knows. I did have to work today, which is unusual since I work very part time. Today I was watching kids whose parents were at a school music programme. ... Read more
