National Coffee Day
Tuesday, September 29, 2020      22 comments

I gave up my daily caffeine intake on January 1st of this year, and haven't even been tempted to go back to drinking coffee. Even though I was only having half of a small mug daily, caffeine was not my body's friend. I had tried to get off... Read more
SHOULD I GO BACK TO THE GYM POOL YET? (or ever)
Monday, September 28, 2020      19 comments

I guess if I go by my gut, the right answer for me would be NO. I really want to. But I don't want to risk getting sick. Guess that settles that. Supposed to have temps 100+ this week. Boooooo; I want cooler temps. It's almost October,... Read more

Sunday, September 27, 2020      21 comments

It's a fine line between helping or enabling, and yesterday a month-long stressful period blew up even though I continued to be patient and calm. If a person isn't willing to do what is deemed to be in their best interest, well, sorry but I'm o... Read more

Make Water Your Best Friend, As Though Your Life Depends On it. (because it does!)
Wednesday, September 23, 2020      24 comments

I've always been the person reminding everyone of the importance of water and to drink up, making sure to do so myself. This past month has been non-stop stress and distraction, to the point of not taking the best care of myself due to taking c... Read more
WHO GIVES A FIG?
Tuesday, September 22, 2020      19 comments

I tried my first fresh fig yesterday and it was delish. But I'll go very lightly on them because of the sugar content. I am currently winning my war against sugar, and watching natural sugar as well. I can't believe it's Fall already; t... Read more
What in the World is Kadota?
Monday, September 21, 2020      18 comments

That's what I asked myself as I picked up a pkg in the produce dept this morning. Turns out, it's a CA fig. Haven't a clue how to go about eating it, so I will have to do my research. (smiling) I've had fig newtons in the past, so I have an i... Read more

The Social Dilemma - documentary
Thursday, September 17, 2020      20 comments

I strongly recommend this movie which covers just how damaging and controlling social media is, from the mouths of former execs at the biggest companies. I've always suspected, but it's different to hear the specific of how each platform was cr... Read more
