Saturday, May 04, 2013      11 comments

The end of the 17th week of 2013 drawing near, and I've continued my quest to do/try something I've never done before each week of the year. Sometimes I have to think hard to come up with something, and sometimes it just happens. Our local Kiwa... Read more

We've now completed 16 weeks of 2013 and I continue my quest to try or do something new every week throughout the year. Week 16 found me buying a carton of Nancy's Lowfat Raspberry Kefir. I liked the tartness of it. I think it would make a ni... Read more

Friday, April 12, 2013      7 comments

Yesterday I did something I don't believe I've ever done before -- something I neither enjoyed nor planned on doing. I shoveled a foot of snow off my sidewalk in April. And I don't want to do it again!... Read more
Week 14

Easter was approaching and my hubby was feeling terrible with an awful cold and coughing so hard it would hurt his sides and leave him short of breath. I did NOT want to catch it and get sick, especially with the holiday coming up. I decided to... Read more
Week 13 - Coconut Water
Wednesday, April 03, 2013      8 comments

Last week I was listening to SparkPeople Radio, and Karen and Lily were taste-testing coconut water. One of them was trying it for the first time, and I decided that would be my next "new thing" of 2013. I went to our local small-town food co-... Read more
Week 12 Something New

While watching one of Chef Meg's videos, she introduced a product which I'd never seen before -- a tube of sun dried tomato paste -- and suggested it is useful when you need to thicken up a sauce a bit. I happened to see this in our local food ... Read more

I'm sorry to say I could not come up with a single "new thing" for the 11th week of 2013. I did do several new things during week 10 so I'll cheat a bit and use one of them. During my trip to AZ, I was able to play outdoor pickleball for the ... Read more
Week 10 New Thing
Wednesday, March 13, 2013      4 comments

Something I've been wanting to try for a while now but never had the opportunity is sushi. While in Arizona visiting my sister and brother-in-law, somehow the subject of sushi came up and I said that I'd never had it but wanted to try it. Late... Read more

In the 9th week of 2013 my husband and I took a winter vacation for the first time in our lives. We'd not flown together since about 1976 and I have only flown one other time, being last summer with a sister to attend the wedding of another sis... Read more

In Week 8 of 2013 I was again able to experience something new. Last night I attended a concert called "Celtic Fire". The band named "FEAST" from Colorado, consisted of 2 percussionists, a pianist, bassist (both electric bass & string bass), ... Read more
#7 - Chia Seeds
Sunday, February 17, 2013      12 comments

On this 7th week of 2013 I ate chia seeds. I'd been reading about some of the health benefits and decided I'd give them a try. So far I've sprinkled them in my omelet, added them to a tuna sandwich and just tonight tried them partially dissol... Read more

Saturday, February 09, 2013      5 comments

Last week some young gals from a skating club in a town about 40 miles away came to put on a show. I've never been to a live ice skating show, and our skating rink is just down the street from me, so I thought it would be fun to go. Two of the... Read more
#5 - Immersion Blender and New Recipe
Thursday, January 31, 2013      7 comments

In Week 5 of 2013 I tried 2 new things. I've never owned or used an immersion blender before. I received on free as a premium from Office Depot for ordering supplies at the office. Since I love cream of broccoli soup but had never made it bef... Read more

As week 4 of 2013 comes to an end, I'm blogging to report on my 4th new thing of the year. This week's "something" I've never done before was a new software at work. The software I'd been using to prepare and file bankruptcy cases had undergo... Read more
