Nicky's Family - Documentary on Netflix
Saturday, March 29, 2014      8 comments

I found this last night on Netflix and am still processing. Have tissues ready, for both happy and sad moments. All I can say is - wow!... Read more
Appreciation, Clarification and Surprising Discovery
Thursday, March 27, 2014      16 comments

I really appreciate the support I received two blogs ago, when I was pondering calling my current weight my goal. Even if I did that, I'd stick around SP due to friends like you - an invaluable support system. And when I seriously sat down to ... Read more
Crazy Idea. Might Give Up.
Tuesday, March 25, 2014      14 comments

Not in any way but with this "lifestyle change" am I a brat. Thin all my life, these past 7 years of gain have made me crazy with its need for constant attention and vigilance to calories, exercise, etc. I realize that life changes and I can't ... Read more
Woke Myself Up Laughing This Morning
Sunday, March 23, 2014      17 comments

I don't ever remember that happening in my lifetime. (smiling) And I'm taking it as a sign, among other small ones that are popping up. May blog about this more at some point. Lots of flowers lately. This morning, I repotted my shamrocks... Read more
Shamrocks, Full Moon, Salt Denial
Tuesday, March 18, 2014      19 comments

Yesterday I bought a small pot of shamrocks. I'd always thought they were the same as what grows in my yard as weeds, but they are not. They are big, bright green clover with little white flowers. They close up at night (the flowers too), and... Read more
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
Baby Gorilla Born By Rare C-Section at San Diego Zoo Safari Park
Saturday, March 15, 2014      13 comments

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
