Tuesday, May 07, 2013      6 comments

For a change the sun shone most of the day. Took our friends to the Lake House (which belongs to son and wife) where we saw our new wing of house with a huge bedroom, very large bath, walk-in closet with one big area for computer table, etc. Wha... Read more

Usually we get a tropical rain shower here in FL, then the sun comes out and it is hot and humid. Not today! Rain started last evening with some through the night and when it started raining before 6 AM it never stopped all day. Just the kind... Read more
How Easily Our Routine is Upset!!!

I am supposed to be blogging about all the things I am doing to make improvements in my "healthy eating" and "healthy way of life" and I have not had very good days lately. Our son and wife flew in to see DH play ball and I have been cooking an... Read more
Always Room for Improvement!!!
Wednesday, March 06, 2013      11 comments

Who doesn't have room for improvement??? Seems as though we always have an area that needs worked on. My blogs of the last three days still are where I need improvement: 1. Drinking water rather than tea. 2. Not tasting while cooking. ... Read more
Join Me As I Measure More Accurately
Tuesday, March 05, 2013      7 comments

Tomorrow I will add one more detail to my program - one in which I have become lax - and that is measuring. I will say that in 5 years I have really learned to know how much to put on my plate. And I frequently do use the scales to measure foo... Read more
Successful Today
Monday, March 04, 2013      12 comments

Appreciate all the encouraging words from Sparkers. Today I was very successful with two issues. I ate nothing while standing, in other words, I did not taste while cooking. I even dipped big strawberries in chocolate and made some other ch... Read more
Tasting While Cooking
Sunday, March 03, 2013      10 comments

I do real well on this for a while, then slip into my old, bad habit of tasting things while cooking. Every now and then I make a promise not to eat anything unless sitting and I have once again become very lax about that. What will I do abou... Read more
WATER DRINKING - HARD FOR ME IN COLD WEATHER
Saturday, March 02, 2013      11 comments

Yes, the weather has turned cold and windy in FL and I have a hard time drinking all water when it is cool. I always start the day with 1 1/2 cups hot water with freshly squeezed lemon juice. I fill my 1 qt. drinking container but don't alway... Read more
My Situation With SP
Monday, February 25, 2013      18 comments

MY VALENTINE TREAT
Thursday, February 14, 2013      10 comments

Yes, I did treat myself with food this time. As I walked this morning I was wondering what I would have for breakfast and remembered I had been wanting waffles, a treat of once or twice a year. DH was off to exercise and then play tennis and I... Read more
MY HOME TOWN
Friday, January 04, 2013      10 comments

One team asked us to write about something going on in our home town, so I also wrote it as a blog. Not a home town as we live in this resort for 6 winter months and hundreds of us call the people here "Our Rainbow Family" as the resort is ... Read more
CHRISTMAS SURPRISE!!!
Saturday, December 22, 2012      16 comments

About 11 AM there was a rather loud knock on the sliding glass door. I dried my hands, went to door to see a man holding a lovely poinsettia in front of his face and the woman beside him. I thought that floral delivery guy knocked quite loudly... Read more
