Today I spent several lovely hours visiting with my parents, eating a nice dinner and talking. Driving up was nice because the sun was shining and I could actually see patches of blue sky (unusual sight lately!). But soon after I reached the l... Read more

Just a note. Am really struggling with exercise. The phrase "that's some nerve" comes to mind. Arm and shoulder pains that surfaced in February have this past month made any movement or change of position of the left arm pretty undoable. Pu... Read more

Flag Day is a distinctly American day of observance. Thousands of brave men and women have died for our right to have this flag. It symbolizes things too many of us take for granted. The distinction of this day of observation is as spe... Read more

The merits of sticking to doing what is right
Saturday, June 01, 2013      5 comments

Ok, so the title is no news to any of us. Doing 'what is right' has merit. And we constantly read articles reiterating facts we already know. Putting what we know into action is of course the key. That is where the concept called 'mo... Read more

Thought for the day; keeping it positive
Saturday, May 18, 2013      10 comments

If you've read my blogs for awhile, you've perhaps noticed that certain key thoughts recur; even though phrased differently or with a particular focus, the basic thoughts recur. Words or meanings that pile from my keyboard onto the site include... Read more

Ha! Gotcha! You just HAD to see what I meant, huh? lol I really don't like/enjoy eating meat. The doc says that since I go low on protein (especially when I skip meat a lot) I should have it a few times a week. Well, the only way to l... Read more

While I now think of the word 'diet' as 'nutrition plan', many 'diets' out there have little to do with balance. They still get recognition, people still opt for them because they want results and want them quickly. Periodically we see a... Read more
just a note of a day
Wednesday, April 17, 2013      7 comments

When a fibromyalgia flare hangs onto me for too long it simply drains me of energy. I go into a sort of automatic mode, where I do things but don't really feel I'm WITH the action. This goes for everything. Exercise, eating, meal preparation o... Read more
