Heat Wave, Day24 w/o caffeine & sugar, Landscaping
Monday, September 15, 2014      12 comments

Schools will be out half-day and people are wilting wherever you look. Heat wave as we welcome in the fire season during a critically-severe drought. Whoopeeeee! Day 24 without caffeine and sugar. Sugar was easier to get back on track du... Read more
Landscaping Has Begun! Very Excited!
Friday, September 12, 2014      18 comments

I am dedicating this new yard to my dearly-departed cousin (in black top in photo) as we both have/had a tremendous love for nature. My landscaper's work around town has always given me a huge sense of peace, love and tranquility when I look at... Read more
I've Never Forgotten
Thursday, September 11, 2014      10 comments

Nor will I ever. God bless and help our country; we are in big trouble with weak, corrupt leaders who have their heads up their butts making one bad decision after another. I'm so tired of it. Truly. And it has nothing to do with party p... Read more
Less Energy Without Caffeine
Wednesday, September 10, 2014      11 comments

Day 19 of no caffeine and I do feel wonderful. However.... My energy level is yucky. I have a lot of energy, but it depletes quickly and there is no instant fix as there was with coffee. I am doing more protein to try to combat the fatig... Read more
The Down Side of De-cluttering
Tuesday, September 09, 2014      9 comments

I've been de-cluttering for a number of years now. Which makes me sound like a hoarder, which I'm not. But if you've been on the earth a number of years, you've accumulated things, things, things. And you get to the realization of how freeing... Read more
Today's My Friend's Neurologist Appt.
Monday, September 08, 2014      11 comments

I blogged about the symptoms my dear friend is having, and how his GP insisted it's from nerves and would not give him a referral. I kept tenaciously (but pleasantly) insisting he convince his doc that this needs further attention. He finally ... Read more
Exhausted, but Windows Look Amazing
Sunday, September 07, 2014      7 comments

Yesterday entailed my having to scrub all of the window blinds by-hand and it was an all-day job. The windows look amazing and well-worth the hard work. What added to the difficulty was the heat - 90 degrees in the house with no way to turn on... Read more

Today I'm having vinyl windows installed and it'll be a lot of work for both me and them. Just wanted to pop in and wish everyone a good day.... Read more

This and That
Wednesday, September 03, 2014      13 comments

After meeting MANY landscapers, I found one who is a gem. An absolute find. They started the demolition of front yard yesterday in preparation for a xeriscape. Since CA is almost out of water, it makes sense to not have to water anything. Or... Read more
Day 10 - No Caffeine
Monday, September 01, 2014      12 comments

Detox aches and pains are gone. No cravings except for occasional feelings of "everyone else gets to drink coffee but me." Which is a totally irrational thought since I don't really care what everyone else is doing. But you know how that feel... Read more
The Power of Blogging
Thursday, August 28, 2014      12 comments

It was tough for me to blog about sugar yesterday, but once I did, I became instantly accountable and knew what to do to get back on the right track. Sure, I could have told you some of the emotional issues propelling that need for sugar comfor... Read more
Day 6 Caffeine-Free, but Diving Badly Into Sugar
Wednesday, August 27, 2014      8 comments

Once I stopped caffeine, I took up with my other old nemesis - sugar - which I'd been off of for quite awhile. Gotta get a grip on myself. Hope all are having a good day.... Read more
Body Aches - Not the Flu, but Caffeine Withdrawals
Monday, August 25, 2014      12 comments

This is Day 3, friends!!!!!!!!! Hooray for me. And thank you all for the kind support. It really does help. As I've written, this weaning process has been kinder and gentler than cold turkey that I've done previously. Headache was minima... Read more
ARE MY NORCAL FRIENDS OKAY AFTER BIG EARTHQUAKE?
Sunday, August 24, 2014      7 comments

I hope you're all okay up there; very scary, for sure. Second day of no caffeine. I guess I'm doing fine. Headache is a lot milder than the cold turkey headache, so that's a wonderful thing. Wishing all a good day.... Read more
