What A Rainy Week It's Been!
Friday, February 22, 2019      20 comments

Yes, we needed rain after a long drought, but too much of a good thing causes flooding and other problems. I've had a lot of yard clean-up and repair to do, but no real damage. Doing well with sugar and caffeine, not so great with cheese, ... Read more
Look in the Mirror and Wish Your Best Friend a Happy V-Day
Thursday, February 14, 2019      19 comments

Wishing all a happy day. Two solid days of stress with this landscaper who cut down my plants. I really have to control my stress better. Got a new blender for my protein smoothies. Just a cheapo model since I don't need something ... Read more
Vitamix Spark, Plants Removed, Acupuncture, Update on 2 Friends w/"C" Word
Tuesday, February 12, 2019      20 comments

Yesterday, my old Vitamix did a huge spark; not from the plug, but from the metal at the base of the container. I assume that means not to use it again? It's scary to see sparks fly. This morning the guy I hired to cut down the two huge p... Read more
When Do Reasons Become Excuses?
Monday, February 11, 2019      16 comments

And when do habits become addictions? And, while you're answering those, what is the meaning of life? I recently watched a film and one of the lines went something like, "Maybe there was never supposed to be a meaning in life." I think th... Read more
Enough's Enough (smiling). Too much of a Good Thing (celebrating birthday).
Sunday, February 10, 2019      17 comments

It's been a long celebratory period since I started b'day happenings since Jan. 15. Enough already of this foolishness. (smiling) Now, on with "normal" life. I was going to continue throughout February, but am calling a halt to it now. ... Read more

Happy Birthday to Me and My Dear Grandma
Friday, February 08, 2019      26 comments

Every year I write this blog. I was born on my dear grandmother's birthday and named after her. I lived with my grandparents for the first five years of my life, so they played a huge role. I miss them so much. I'm wearing my grandmother... Read more
New Vet Services Inside Petco Stores
Tuesday, February 05, 2019      18 comments

Yesterday I visited the nearby Petco store to find out more about the new vet services they provide, called Thrive. Well, it looks like this will be very convenient for me in case my elderly cat needs care. I do have a good vet, but she is not... Read more
Junk Food is Still Junk Food, Even if It's a Free Birthday Meal
Monday, February 04, 2019      22 comments

Someone told me there are a number of restaurants that provide a free meal on your birthday (or for a week or so after it). Yes, IHOP does. But I don't eat syrupy pancakes. Denny's does. But I don't particularly care for their food. Jersey ... Read more
Taxes Done
Sunday, February 03, 2019      20 comments

Hooray hooray, another tax year put away. Thank goodness for TurboTax making my life so much easier at tax time. Rain has finally stopped and I see the sunshine peaking through the clouds. Love me some sunshine, that's for sure. Have... Read more
Food Tracking Laziness, Grocery Replacement System, Calorie Second-Guessing
Saturday, February 02, 2019      18 comments

There's absolutely no reason that I'm not tracking food intake, other than laziness. I feel I'm doing well with my choices, but the only way to make sure is to see it in numbers on the tracker. Today I've made a commitment to start again and t... Read more

My Return to the Pool Did Not Go Swimmingly
Tuesday, January 29, 2019      22 comments

Yesterday I returned to pool aerobics class after a 3-month break. About a month ago, they did a 3-week drain and scrub, so the water did look so much better. The minute I entered the pool area, the chlorine-smelling air hit my nostrils and lu... Read more
What Went Well in January 2019
Monday, January 28, 2019      19 comments

With only a few days left in the month, I thought over what was positive for me. I did well with limiting my food monsters - cheese, salt and sugar. My relative's doc appt, which I went to in order to provide support, had good results. ... Read more
HAD MY FIRST KUMQUAT YESTERDAY
Sunday, January 27, 2019      25 comments

During my walk, a neighbor was trimming a bush/tree that looked like it had tiny oranges. Nope, kumquats, which are part of the citrus family. He cut some off for me to bring home. The skin is sweet and the inside is sour. Yikes. I'll... Read more
