A/C, Sansone, Earthquake
Monday, March 17, 2014      15 comments

Yesterday the temperature prediction was to be in the 80's - higher than usual for this time of year. With stucco exteriors, it's like being in a slow-bake oven as the sun beats down all day. As things got hotter in the house, I kept thinking ... Read more
The City Dark (documentary about light pollution)
Sunday, March 16, 2014      11 comments

Found this interesting documentary about the effects of light pollution on people and different animals. Very enlightening. (pun intended) They are not advocating going back to the Dark Ages, but using lighting that doesn't waste 85 percent en... Read more

Guaranteed to make you smile. Log onto Youtube and paste this title in. Just one minute of sheer cuteness.... Read more
"Did You See the Wine That's On Clearance?"
Friday, March 14, 2014      13 comments

I'm a person who has always enjoyed appreciating the absurdities of life, and today I once again amused myself with my own absurd thinking and behavior. Shopping in my nearby little grocery store, the employee I know there said, "oh, did yo... Read more
My First Brush with Credit Card Fraud
Thursday, March 13, 2014      18 comments

Yesterday I started the day with a big surprise. Checking my bank balances and my credit card activity daily has been a long-time habit. Just because. When I opened the credit card account (of which I have only one), I noticed a pending c... Read more
Rewards System, Rationalization, and Misc.
Sunday, March 09, 2014      22 comments

I really crack myself up sometimes. I've recently noticed the humorous side of my own rewards system. For example, when I pay my credit card balance off each month I reward myself with buying a "little something." When I've eaten great for aw... Read more
Fish Tacos, Sansone, Springing Ahead
Saturday, March 08, 2014      21 comments

Today I'm going with a friend to dinner and will be ordering my favorite fish tacos at On The Border. I love their fish tacos and, yes, they are a million calories. But I've learned to bring the rest home and make them into another meal. They... Read more
Maybe I Should've Missed the Dance (WARNING: NOT A HAPPY HAPPY)
Friday, March 07, 2014      23 comments

The other day, I heard a mother say that if she'd known how painful it would be to lose a child, she would have never had kids. It jolted me to hear that because, truth be told, I've often pondered the platitude, "it's better to have loved and ... Read more
Rayon difficulties, Matthew Mcconaughey, Harry's Eyeball Update
Thursday, March 06, 2014      17 comments

I've been thrilled to find some beautiful blouses lately, but today it occurred to me to research the fabric upkeep. Not good news about rayon as it's said to be very difficult to launder w/o shrinkage and wrinkles. So, I'll have to be careful... Read more
Collards & Chard. My first time for each.
Wednesday, March 05, 2014      20 comments

I've come to rely on one green smoothie a day. I started by using spinach, but shortly thereafter, found that my fave grocery store has regular markdowns of collards and chard. They were cheap and green, so I bought them and have been using in... Read more
Can This Be True about Sunflower Seeds?
Tuesday, March 04, 2014      26 comments

Yesterday, I picked up a tiny bag of sunflower seeds to buy as a snack. Looking at the label, I had to read it a couple of times to see if it wasn't a typo. Calories for 1/4 cup listed at 180 - 140 from fat! Are you kidding me?! That's amazi... Read more
Looking Forward to DayLight Savings
Monday, March 03, 2014      22 comments

I prefer longer daylight and welcome this coming weekend's time change. Now, if they'd only leave it alone and not change the time anymore as they do in some states. Wishing all a happy day.... Read more
Leslie Sansone, Rain, Harry, Academy Awards
Sunday, March 02, 2014      14 comments

It's day 3 of rain. Intermittent rain, that is. Everything is turning greener like magic - just in time for St. Patty's Day. Love rain so much. Hope it comes again soon as it's our fourth year in a severe drought. Today is Day 3 of two ... Read more
Rain, Prince Harry, Judi Dench, March Attitude
Friday, February 28, 2014      24 comments

Who would think that rain could be so exciting? It is. Especially during a 4 year drought with nearby lakes dried up and trees/shrubs brown, dry, and thirsty. I love the sound of rain, one that I don't hear very often. And I keep pausing fro... Read more
I INTEND TO KICK MAJOR BUTT IN MARCH
Tuesday, February 25, 2014      26 comments

No more Mr. Nice Guy. (smiling) The remainder of this weight is coming off. I'm totally committed to an outrageous upcoming new month. ... Read more
