New Changes for 2020+


  New changes for 2020+, decided to divide my clothes into seasons, L-R, Winter, Fall, Spring, Summer. Summer only looks like a lot, 85% of summer are tshirts, some with logos. Not counting those, I have three. But, to me, looks like a good, basic wardrobe. I have 5 pants tho, but enough to divide … Continue reading New Changes for 2020+

Treating Myself


  Since I met my New Year's Resolutions in 2019, I treated myself to a new Day Bag. How did I get the money? Since paying off bills I was left with after my divorce in 2017 and after rebuilding my confidence and self-esteem (that took two years), I started saving money to relocate back … Continue reading Treating Myself

First Celebration Anniversary 2020


Last New Year, I started a different type of New Resolution instead of the same old tired promises, such as "I'll go to the gym 3 hours every day and lose 20 pounds this year!" or the popular, "I'll stop drinking/eating..." which always  works (no, not really). Or some such other impossible task. Then by … Continue reading First Celebration Anniversary 2020

Christmas 2019


  I had my Xmas eve appetizers: Had a thin-crust mex pizza, brie with red peppers and celery crudites plus homemade salted caramel bark (reminds me of peanut clusters). The appetizers hit the spot. Christmas Day I made a crockpot turkey breast (with mushrooms, carrots & celery in 1/2 cup wine), Harvard beets (fancy name … Continue reading Christmas 2019

IBS and Rosacea Friendly Chili


Each Labor Day, my mom would make a huge canning kettle full of her signature chili, what we didn't eat, she'd freeze and we'd have it throughout the year. When I had my own place, I began making what I called an "annual vat of chili", I'd gorge then freeze to have in the coming … Continue reading IBS and Rosacea Friendly Chili

August Second New Moon Love Spell


  Last night's New Moon, August 30 2019, was the second for August and called the Positive Change New Moon. Great for New Beginnings so in the magical world, will help aid in new beginnings for the crafter. Taking advantage, I began by researching for Health, Love and Success spells for a Major Mojo/Charm bag. … Continue reading August Second New Moon Love Spell

Wonderful Dream: Moved to France


Had a wonderful dream last night. I had sold everything I owned and moved somewhere in France. I went through a rental brokerage, that found me a 600 sqft studio over a double garage that a retired couple wanted used not charging a lot of rent. The wife was using the garage as her artists … Continue reading Wonderful Dream: Moved to France

11 Weeks Keto and Pyramid Workouts


Today marks 11 weeks I started Keto and ramping up my dumbbell workouts and 2 weeks ago started pyramid dumbbell workouts. Measured my stats this morning and had a little bit of an ego boost! While my weight isn't going down (as I've discussed before) my measurements have improved. Chest went from 41" to 43" … Continue reading 11 Weeks Keto and Pyramid Workouts

Dating at 50


Now that I've had a chance to catch my breath, I've been interested in dating again. Not sure where to look, I turned to personals sites, one well-known. I'd been a member for a month and nothing was happening, so I cancelled the rest of the membership. Who I'm interested in dating is a professional … Continue reading Dating at 50

Men: Do you get 38 grams of Fiber?


A few days ago I was looking into weight loss yet again. An article from the FDA and another from WebMD about fiber intake. Women need 25 grams per day and men need 38 grams per day, saying the average American gets about 15 grams per day. I thought that was untenable, 38 grams per … Continue reading Men: Do you get 38 grams of Fiber?
