Now, before you say anything, I know that is a terrible thing to say. Being bored is a state of mind and can be a luxury. I … Read more about Be Careful What You Wish For . . .and Baked Chicken Parmesan
A few weeks ago I posted It Is What It Is sharing about having meniere's disease and hearing loss in one ear. Well, the experience did not end there. I thought I'd give you the "rest of the story". At the time I wrote about discovering I had "sudden severe hearing loss" in my right ear, my … Read more about It Is What It Is . . .Part 2
We all like to be comfortable. Doing new things and trying new things can be fun and exciting or can be scary and nerve racking. I think the older we get the easier it is to stay in that nice, warm comfortable space. And that is where we stop moving forward and growing. Recently, I did something … Read more about Getting Out of my Comfort Zone. . . with a fashion and fitness combo
As I am not writing regularly you would think I would have more time to devote to all of those projects I was supposed to get done in July.

When I was growing up we ate evening meals at our breakfast room table 5-6 nights a week. Obviously, that means we ate as a family around a table, all together, for the majority of our meals. When you only know one thing and that one thing is something you grew up doing, it's hard to let that sort … Read more about Finally . . . A Meal Together . . . and my Barbecue Sauce
This past week was particularly slow for me. I have had a bug that knocked me for a loop. There were a couple of days that I didn't even feel like watching TV or reading. I basically lie in the bed, wallowing, doing nothing. Thank heavens after a few days I could actually open my laptop or watch … Read more about Inspiration from Mothers. . .
If I am not talking health and fitness, and, of course, food, then I am talking books. I love books. Therefore, I occasionally update with good reads I've completed. Books are so subjective that sometimes I hesitate to really recommend something that I love because another person may think it a … Read more about Recent Reads and Cool Deals for You!
