Lessons from the Gorillas and Pandas
Thursday, July 10, 2014      9 comments

I love them, among other animals. When I go to the zoo, I can't help but notice that they eat the same things every day and are quite content to eat to live. Realizing that I am neither a gorilla nor panda, I DO not have to live to eat any... Read more
FORGOT TO EAT BREAKFAST THIS MORNING

Wow, that never happens! Maybe it's the heat, but I'm really not that hungry and am currently enjoying a nice, big, green smoothie as I type this. Hope all are happy, healthy and enjoying this July 8 day. Big hug.... Read more

July Fry has hit in San Diego. Very hot. Will be until around mid-October. I guess that's because it's summertime. Not that there are seasons here. Unless you go to the nearby mountains for snow in winter. Read two short books today, ... Read more

Friday, July 04, 2014      15 comments

I'm still in shock and still trying to wrap my mind around the news I just got a few hours ago. I have no details yet, but have known this young man since he was a toddler. Very sad and disturbing. I will post a happier blog later in th... Read more
Woohoo. Holding Our Own at Half Time at World Cup.
Tuesday, July 01, 2014      13 comments

Not normally a soccer fan, but have to admit that I'm pretty jazzed that we're in the World Cup. Have taken time from my day today and it's half-time with no score. Holding our own. Proud of this U.S. team. Woohoo. (NOW INTO EXTRA TIME,... Read more

Will Work Hard to Make the 2nd Half of This Year Better than the First Half
Monday, June 30, 2014      14 comments

Well, this year has been a humdinger, for sure. Not only the month of pneumonia (third time in 18 months), but the death of my dear friend a few weeks ago. And, of course, the bumps in the road that are also a part of my own life. So, I... Read more

Relief and Closure
Tuesday, June 24, 2014      13 comments

This is not an emotional closure of the loss of my cousin, but a legal closure that has been a dark cloud hovering over my head for over 3 years. I recently blogged about a deadbeat attorney who has dragged my cousin's (in black shirt in SP... Read more

I found this Polish proverb in a book I downloaded free on Kindle and started reading this weekend - "WTF to OMG - A frazzled female's guide..." This proverb sticks in my head due to some issues and reminding myself to give back responsibil... Read more
Fitbit Weirdness
Friday, June 20, 2014      17 comments

Whenever I forget to wear my fitbit, I feel as though my day's walking didn't count! (smiling) Will I ever be able to live without counting my steps? I don't know. It gets to be part of the fun to see how many steps for the day. But if this l... Read more

Pea Sprouts and New Market
Tuesday, June 17, 2014      14 comments

I recently discovered a large Asian supermarket and the size of its produce department is amazing. In fact, it'll take me several visits to look at all the unique fruit and veggies from far and wide. Things I've never heard of; fascinating. ... Read more
