Starting early doesn't hurt, does it? My word for the first two weeks of 2020 is FOCUS. This can touch me on so many levels. The benefits are endless. For instance, for breakfast I learned that if I eliminated a few items and was aware of portio... Read more

All the planning, organizing, preparations that are a part of what makes our time with family are all very much worth it! We downsized on gifts even more so this year. The kids had fun figuring out riddles and finding a little cash in each end r... Read more

I am enjoying this holiday season more than any other and I'm trying to figure out why. Perhaps, because I decorated my home before Thanksgiving (first time ever) since I didn't host Thanksgiving this year. Or maybe it's because I'm taking the t... Read more

April 11, 2019 and we should be enjoying Spring weather but instead the midwest is being pummeled with a wintery mix of pelting ice and snow of 6 - 12 inches during a three day period. I'm trying to see the beauty in it - the snow capped trees a... Read more

I did a lot of meal prep on Saturday for this week. I think I used every pan in the kitchen. Time consuming and a lot of work. I know I'll figure it out as I go along and find an easier system. I worked with chicken, Italian ground turkey, spagh... Read more
Concentrate on Water
Sunday, October 28, 2018      2 comments

I don't know why it's so difficult for me to drink 8+ cups of water daily. I start off great and by the end of the day always fall short. Today I'm going to really concentrate and make it become a big part of my routine. At work I seem to be bus... Read more

I do so appreciate my weekends - especially those where I'm at home with nothing planned. There's a long list of to dos but I will be selective and enjoy my time off as well. I've not be very active with Spark People for awhile but must always... Read more

Wow, I haven't blogged anything for a year. So much has happened in a year. I've had fun planning events for my great niece and nephews - Ghostbusters and now a Carnival in the back yard for 11 nieces/nephews. It takes me a LONG time to pull the... Read more
