Rainy days in the mountains...

Wednesday, May 27, 2015      2 comments

We've had some heavy rain off and on for the last few days. It does not deter me from exercise. Here at the cabin I have two flights of stairs and that in itself can be a workout - 10 minutes up and down definitely gets the heart rate up. I a... Read more

Feeling very blessed...

My daughter received a grant for an art history class in Rome! Over the last few months we have talked about how we could work out bringing her DD (our DGD) to Rome. Yesterday we booked the flights and then we booked a 14 day cruise from Venic... Read more

Cabin time

Monday, April 27, 2015      6 comments

Yesterday we did the 9 hour drive to the cabin. It is always a pleasure to be here until we begin to unload the car and have to bring all those things up at least one full flight of stairs. If it is something we need upstairs that means anothe... Read more

My red blouse.....

Sunday, March 29, 2015      7 comments

I have had a beautiful red blouse for a couple of years. I bought it one year after Christmas on sale and I wore it once or twice but somehow (who knows why???) it got a little snug so it got shoved to the back of the closet. This morning whil... Read more

Still looking

Thursday, March 26, 2015      6 comments

We found one condo that we like but the owners were there and she was in bed after some surgery and he would not stop talking so it was hard to look around. We may go back and take another look if we decide we are interested. We are now lo... Read more

Condo shopping again...

Tuesday, March 24, 2015      6 comments

Today we are looking at a few more condos in our designated area. Condos are still fairly reasonable in this area and we lived not far from there for almost 20 years so we are comfortable there. This would allow us to spend most of the year at... Read more

Can't stop counting.....

Sunday, March 22, 2015      7 comments

I keep thinking I will blog routinely because the feedback is so helpful but then I get busy and don't take the time to put a few thoughts together. My blood sugar had been really good so what do I do - start getting sloppy with eating agai... Read more

Don't stop now......

I finished a 5% challenge on Saturday and I tend to look at the interim time before the next challenge begins as time off. I do not want to do this. I'm making progress again and I want to keep the momentum going. With that in mind my cu... Read more

Making progress

Thursday, March 05, 2015      4 comments

I have been participating in an 8 week challenge to lose 5% of my weight. I have done this challenge multiple times over the past few years and each time I learn something and make some progress. I started this one off with a vengeance determi... Read more

Feeling the chill

Thursday, February 19, 2015      5 comments

It is 52/F in central Florida. The sun is shining and the wind is blowing and it feels cold! I know I have no right to say that with what is happening in the rest of the country but it is all relative to what you are used to experiencing. ... Read more

Never should have done that!

Tuesday, February 03, 2015      7 comments

I have no idea what I was thinking but this morning I stepped on the scale. I try so hard NOT to do that except on Saturday morning. I was up a pound from my Saturday weigh-in! Needless to say that was annoying. I am telling myself to block ... Read more

Week 2 - sticking to the list

Monday, January 19, 2015      6 comments

Saturday started the 2nd week of the current 5% challenge and I am still feeling very motivated. Meals are being planned and tracked early in the morning so there is no question about what can be consumed. We are working on cleaning out ... Read more

Sunny Saturday

Saturday, January 17, 2015      5 comments

It was sooooooooo nice to see the sun this morning. We've had several dreary days in central Florida. So wonderful to be out walking and feel the sunshine and a little breeze. January is why we choose to live in Florida! I'm down about ... Read more

Remember Jell-o?

Thursday, January 15, 2015      7 comments

As a general rule Jello does not come to my mind. I was never crazy about it as a kid and I never developed much of a taste for it as an adult. I used to make it when the kids were young and a couple of times we even made it in a baking pan so... Read more

Splurging at Vero

Friday, January 09, 2015      5 comments

This afternoon we are heading over to Vero Beach to have dinner and spend the night. We used to go there often for long weekends and had a favorite motel on the beach. Tonight we will be having dinner at the Ocean Grill - one of our very favor... Read more
