The Downsizing Begins

  In looking forward to that tiny house dream, it is time to begin a second round of elimination.  4 years ago, I played the Minimalist game, which I can recommend for everyone.  It takes something a bit scary and makes it into a game.  I had a lot of fun. Here is how it…

I Could Call it a Depth Year

So in my random  perusing on the Internet today, I came up with an idea that started circulating in early 2018, this idea of a Depth Year. Lots of articles and blogposts, and even a Facebook group, all spun off this idea: spend a year in the old not in the new. Instead of starting…

Rawsome Summer 2019

A few years ago, I spent the months of June, July and August eating 100% raw. As I look back it was the best summer ever.  I am not sure why I have not done that since then, but it is time to breathe life back into the Rawsome Summer program!!  Only I am gonna…

Clean as a Whistle

I have eaten some truly yummy food this week. And I have eaten some things that were not so great.  I decided to do a 7 day cleanse, and my daughter is doing it along with me. We are following a cleanse that is part of FMTV (Food Matters TV). If you don’t know about…

Untitled

As I type this post, I am looking out the window over my backyard.  Yesterday it rose to a balmy 67 degrees. Today it is snowing.  Snowing so hard , as a matter of fact, and blowing equally hard, that the flakes are running parallel to the ground. Go figure??  Not that I don’t absolutely…

Nine

I wish there was some magic in the number 9.  But, alas, there is not.  I continue to sit in a state of floundering.  I weighed in for the beginning of the month, and as I suspected, I had gained weight.  This is how it always goes, and I feel totally powerless to prevent it…

Week Eight and a Bit More

I am taking things into my own hands.  It’s been a week of trying to overcome/tolerate a back issue. It started out weeks ago as a very mild irritation that didn’t bother me much when awake but was definitely a bother when trying to sleep.  I was unable to find a position to sleep in…

Prayer

Prayer is always on my mind.  Mostly in a sense of desiring to know more about it; desiring to figure it all out.  I have a feeling it is not something I will figure out or gain total control over. But I am not connecting with the God of the Universe in the best way…

#2

I am sitting here this morning, struggling with the idea that I may be coming down with the flu??  I have stomach cramps and a sense of dis-ease coming over me in waves.  I have no way to know whether it will increase and send me to bed or lessen and leave me able to…

A week in Review, #1

It hasn’t been a week, but I want to do the reviews on the weekend, so this one is only a few days long rather than a week.  But I want to have the habit of checking in on my year’s goals each week to make sure I am staying on top of everything as…
