I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES
Sunday, April 14, 2019      26 comments

When I went to my pool aerobics class the other day, there were four people in the jacuzzi. Three of them were on their phones and Ipads! I actually had to do a double-take. Is there anywhere we can go now and be free of those things? Ye... Read more

What is this Plant Called?
Friday, April 12, 2019      18 comments

I've posted it in my photo gallery after several attempts to post it on here unsuccessfully. Researched everywhere on the web, and can't find the name of it. Am awaiting acceptance after registering on a site that names unfamiliar plants, but ... Read more
Thunder Snow, Humane Society Impending Trip, Misc.
Thursday, April 11, 2019      19 comments

I've never heard of this before this morning's national weather report saying some areas would get thunder snow. Has anyone experienced this? Does it also lightning? Seems like it would have to be warm to lightning although I thought when you... Read more

...shine brighter than the light that's ON you." I heard this as I was walking this morning and listening to sports radio. One coach sent it to another before their championship game. To me, it reminds me to nurture the really important stuff... Read more
2 More Lbs Gone, Back to Pool Aerobics, Misc.
Monday, April 08, 2019      28 comments

A month and a half ago, I stopped eating junky, starchy carbs. I'm a total of 12 lbs down and feeling so much better. There have been many nsv's as well, which I'll blog about at some point. Back to pool aerobics this morning, and it was ... Read more
A Lovely Walk in the Rain
Friday, April 05, 2019      25 comments

Under my umbrella with a light rain coming down, I went for my first walk of the day. It was such a sweet time and set my day with a peaceful, easy feeling. Wishing all a happy, healthy day.... Read more
My First Taste of Green Tomato
Thursday, April 04, 2019      21 comments

Other than the film "Fried Green Tomatoes," I've never experienced a green tomato until yesterday when I had a chance to taste a piece of one. At first I thought it hadn't ripened yet, but then was advised that it was a gourmet green tomato... Read more
The Down Side of Healed Plantar Fasciitis
Wednesday, April 03, 2019      23 comments

Although I am very thankful that my plantar healed awhile ago and was only in one foot (caused by the hip sprain it tried to compensate for on the other side of my body), my first time experience was enough. The down side since it has healed is... Read more

Tuesday, April 02, 2019      25 comments

…WHEN I CARED I saw this on a t-shirt the other day and it made me smile. I’ve always had an undercurrent of rebellion in my personality, wanting to roam and hop a freight train. (smiling) Yet, I did do normal things and fit into society ... Read more
What I Didn't Win At the Casino, I Won in the Life Lottery this Morning
Sunday, March 31, 2019      28 comments

I am home now, and my heart has just calmed down to a normal rhythm. At a store earlier, awaiting its opening, the entrance door (big, heavy, glass) that usually slides open swung outward with such force that, had I not moved a second before, w... Read more
A Day Away Through the Mountains
Saturday, March 30, 2019      17 comments

Yesterday's trip away with a friend through the mountains was wonderful. Stopped at a casino for a bit of fun. Broke even and got a lot of play time for very little. Then out to eat. I had a friend check in at home for my furry friend to mak... Read more
MY FEATHERS WERE RUFFLED THIS MORNING
Friday, March 29, 2019      21 comments

I hate to blog about trivial stuff when there are so many important things going on in my life and others’ lives. However, it is what it is, and trivial things make up a day just as the important things do. I’m an early riser (around 4 or 4:30)... Read more
Hummingbirds Are Always Two Hours Away from Starvation
Thursday, March 28, 2019      22 comments

According to a presentation I recently saw (and if you want to be amazed and fascinated, visit the hummingbird nests at explore.org), because they rely solely on glucose, they are about two hours away from starvation at any given time. What... Read more
For Every LB You Lose, It takes 6 Lbs of Presssure off Hips, 4 Lbs Pressure Off Knees
Wednesday, March 27, 2019      25 comments

I don't remember which SP friend had this chart posted in her blog yesterday, and I hope she doesn't mind that I borrowed it. My chiropractor was impressed that I've now taken 60 lbs of pressure off my hip and 40 off my knees with the 10 lb los... Read more
