Sunday, August 30, 2020      15 comments

CAN I (SHOULD I) TAKE A BATH EVER AGAIN?
Wednesday, August 26, 2020      17 comments

In early July, I got a UTI after taking a bath. No bubble bath or new soap was used, and I'm not sure the bath is really the correlate. Since then, I've resorted to showers which are never adequate for someone who is a bath person. (smiling) ... Read more
Shrimp On the Barbie
Tuesday, August 25, 2020      18 comments

Today I am having a little barbecue for two others (and me) to enjoy for no other reason than the joy of having this day. This period of covid time has reminded me of just how precious each day is with no guarantees for tomorrow. So, enjoy! ... Read more
Cognitive Dissonance During Covid Isolation Time
Monday, August 24, 2020      16 comments

Two thoughts/ideas that are opposite can exist in my brain and be true simultaneously. During this time, watching so many get sick and others who die, it is easy for me to slip in the "who gives a d" what I eat? Live life today and enjoy food,... Read more

. . .opens up opportunities that can lead anywhere." Phyllis George I'm doing great being back on-track with no added sugar. Every time I fall off that wagon, I go deeper into an almost sugar coma and feel sick. I've got to stay away fro... Read more
In Grandma's Day
Sunday, May 17, 2020      25 comments

Thursday, May 14, 2020      23 comments

I heard this morning that cats can infect each other, and that humans can infect cats. But not the other way around. Personally, I'd be careful with dogs too. But a friend of mine said that she was taking her chances and cuddling with her fur... Read more
I DREAMT THAT I HAD A GOOD ATTITUDE

Saturday, May 09, 2020      23 comments

I'm back on the right path with no added sugar and already feel better after a week of semi-crabbiness from sugar detox. The truth is, whenever I eat anything that I previously thought of as comfort food, it makes me feel awful. That is my new... Read more
