Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow
Wednesday, October 17, 2018      29 comments

I blogged and pondered the pool chlorine since joining the gym last year and enjoying water aerobics since then. Last night on the radio, I heard a brief comment by a medical person talking about the dangers of chlorine. Researching furthe... Read more
Pumpkin Eggnog, Halloween Candy, Misc.
Monday, October 15, 2018      21 comments

Well, I had already decided that I am not going to tempt fate by bringing home any pumpkin pies this season considering my tremendous love and lack of control for all things pumpkin. However, I did buy a quart of pumpkin eggnog, but can only us... Read more
Walking in the (rare) Rainfall
Saturday, October 13, 2018      21 comments

Last night, my walk wound up being later in the day, toward nightfall. I don't remember the last time it rained here in SoCal and we are in dire need. Set out with a sweatshirt on and no clue that rain had been predicted so that I would ... Read more
Another Compliment Comes Out of Left Field Yesterday
Wednesday, October 10, 2018      28 comments

Disclaimer: I am not boasting when I share these things. Just sharing my surprise at how I would never have guessed people felt this way considering how I have to push myself into many of the exercises for the day. During my walks, I have... Read more
I Regret Having Bought Halloween Candy Early
Monday, October 08, 2018      30 comments

No, I didn't open the bag, but it's been harder than I thought it would be when I blogged about it. At one point, my hot little hands were on the bag, ready to rip it open. I think my good angel (as opposed to the rascally angel that sits on t... Read more

Last Halloween's Food Nightmare
Friday, October 05, 2018      22 comments

The other day, I bought what will be the one and only bag of candy to give out on Halloween. Last year, I spent a lot and had leftovers that I gave to a neighbor who took them to her office for co-workers. This year will be very different for ... Read more
Sad Happenings for Friends Today
Thursday, October 04, 2018      20 comments

I put my original topic on hold to extend my sympathies to spark friends and neighbors who have lost dear family and pet friends (that are like family). On my walk this morning, a lady who lives about a mile away was getting out of her vehi... Read more
40 Percent of Americans Eat Fast Food Daily?
Wednesday, October 03, 2018      21 comments

Heard this on the news this morning. How do they conclude that without actually sampling the entire population. I also heard that humans are hard-wired for laziness, which at one point in evolution, was a useful tool. But now detrimental.... Read more
Cleaned Carpets Instead of Zumba Class, One Year Gym Anniversary, Misc.
Tuesday, October 02, 2018      13 comments

I've been waiting for a cooler morning to attempt cleaning carpets. They were a bit overdue because of this year's hip sprain pain since March. The carpet cleaner is a semi-beast to push around that was one of my best investments awhile ago, a... Read more
Zumba, Air Show/Harry, Misc.
Monday, October 01, 2018      17 comments

Several months ago, when I first got plantar fasciitis in right foot, I gave up doing 20,000 steps a day (doing one walk a day now instead of two), and I also gave up Zumba. I don't love it, but I do have some fun and am thinking of trying a Zu... Read more
Food Tracking, Weekly Weigh-Ins, Pumpkin, Harry and the Blue Angels
Sunday, September 30, 2018      18 comments

I have been consistently tracking food intake for about two months now. Except for the recent endless shrimp feast. (smiling) It really is a wonderful tool in making me aware of what's going into my pie-hole. Speaking of pie, I recently... Read more
The Angels Scare My Elderly Cat Prince Harry
Friday, September 28, 2018      24 comments

It's that time of year again when the Blue Angels soar overhead for the 3-day air show starting today. Yesterday they practiced and my dear little fur baby has had 14 years of going through the terror of hiding as the Angels sound like they wi... Read more
Surprised by the Calories in Pomegranates
Thursday, September 27, 2018      17 comments

I was as surprised to learn the number of calories in poms as I was when I learned about those in watermelon. Puzzled as to how those little flavorful seeds can possibly add up to 72 per pomegranate. I LOVE them and the store has a huge sale o... Read more
Too Bad I Forgot My Sunglasses
Tuesday, September 25, 2018      20 comments

I had to run an errand yesterday afternoon, and pulled out of the driveway lamenting that I'd forgotten my sunglasses. I go nowhere without them in this land of sunshine and glare while driving. But since it was a short distance to go, I figur... Read more
