    My Search For the Fountain of Youth

    I've always been interested in health and nutrition. I think if I wasn't hearlady I would be dieticianlady. However the last 6 months or so I really delved into the vast world of the YouTube "experts". I looked at Veganism ( autocorrect had fun with that word), Keto/low carb, intermittent...

    It's so confusing these days with all the diets out there. Eating food should be simple! I decided to really get in and educate myself on what exactly is a Keto or a Vegan or a Paleo, etc, diet. My concerns are disease, dementia, and overall energy and wellness. My humble conclusion is that a...

    I Need a No News Day

    I took today off to have a leisure day to prepare for seeing my granddaughters tomorrow. We are meeting about two hours from here. I'm making it a No News Day. It does cause underlying stress when bombarded with all the news lately. Do you find you have to turn off the TV, the tablets, etc and...

    Pantry Day

    I came home late...and hungry. I had been thinking about sauerkraut for some reason. We didn't have any. This sounds bad but it was good: Saluted some whole mushrooms, added mustard greens, black beans, a cut up kosher dill, and a handful of shredded sharp cheddar on top. Fine cuisine.

    Vintage Surprise

    When the family cleaned out my Mother in Law's house I acquired a box of Greeting cards. There were some that looked old and I really like them. The rest were the type that you're sent from charities hoping for a donation. There were lots of them and they looked dated. I started to go through...

    Senior Moments

    Yesterday I had to do an errand for work. I drove several miles before I realized that I'd gotten on the wrong side of the highway. It's a road I drive home on every day so I rationalize that I'm so used to going that way it was habit. Maybe but it bothered me. I was not paying attention which...

    I'm trying a Therivent tonight

    It's something I saw in Wal-Mart. It was a trial pack for snoring. Kind of expensive but I thought if they work I would use them occasionally (?). I don't like the breath right strips. My husband has used them for years and they help him. There was a coupon in the box if I like them. Ill let...

    Question about (I hate) Dusting

    I bought an inexpensive feather duster to use for knick knacks and things but today I ended up just dusting all over with it. They say this just moves the dust around and I agree. I know Ill still have to polish sometimes however this was so easy I almost didn't mind dusting. I didn't have to...

    End of the f***ing world on Netflix

    Ok I'm over 60. I was looking through Netflix to find something to watch while cooking. I turned this teenager show on to check it out. Well, it was surprisingly good! Yes, some language, maybe vulgar content but not bad enough for me to not enjoy the storyline. I read a review online not long...

    The Magic Frig

    I remember this was on a food blog or something. The idea is to keep your frig filled with healthy ingredients that you can turn into soups, salads, bowls, stir fry etc. easily. I do a version of that. Today I made Barley Pilaf. I try to keep a grain like that or brown rice, quinoa, etc. on...

    Real Time Show on History Channel

    I'm watching a show right now on the History Channel about the History of drugs in America. I posted under this category because in days gone by I remember my mother gave us paregoric for diarrhea. I told my husband and he said his mother gave it to him and his siblings for various things like...

    How do you feel about visiting pets?

    Our family had a pet dog that passed after all the kids had gone off to college. We made the decision not to have another pet after that. Although I miss the companionship at times I don't want to get attached to another pet and all the responsibility that comes with them. At that time we also...

    I think I am now ready to Relax and Enjoy.

    The holidays are always rather stressful for me and I admit that is mostly of my doing. I am transferring an office at work, getting ready to leave town, and company stopping in. I'm doing well getting through it without stressing out. You see I used to deal with all this with alcohol until I...
