Dwelling on Excellence

Good day, friends. My, it has been a while. Not only that, we are living in a very different world than the last time I wrote. Life certainly has changed for me, and I'm sure it has for you too. It seemed like the decade was getting off to a great start when we got… Continue reading Dwelling on Excellence

Happy New Decade!

Happy New Year! Can you believe it is here? The start of a new year . . . the start of a new decade! Have you thought about it? Where were you (physically, spiritually, emotionally) in 2010? How has your life changed?

Problem Solved

It certainly has been an interesting Fall. It seemed like we started by going straight from Summer to Winter. We had measurable snow on October 30th! It is very unusual for us to have snow in them on the month of October. As I mentioned in last week's post, I was looking into fitness center… Continue reading Problem Solved

Breakfast; an Early, Smelly Winter; and a Kitchen Safe

Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay I am sorry for not getting a post out last week. I have noticed for many, many years that October and April are traditionally our busiest months of the year. Even though last Wednesday was technically November, it seemed like the busyness of the previous month had accumulated and I… Continue reading Breakfast; an Early, Smelly Winter; and a Kitchen Safe

Becoming the Best Me

I had this photo pop up on Facebook this week from three years ago. It was a "memory" that it wanted me to share on my page. I didn't share it, and I usually don't because I get tired of seeing everyone else's "memories" from years ago. This photo that I took three years ago… Continue reading Becoming the Best Me

A Bit of a Rant

As I mentioned in my last post, the last few days of my vacation did not go as planned.  I ended up eating off plan and not eating well--including NMF. I don't know why, but it only takes one second to go off plan.  But once you do, it is a long struggle to get… Continue reading A Bit of a Rant

Traveling with Bright Line Eating

Last week was my first time to travel with Bright Line Eating. I'll tell you right off that it was far from perfect. But, it was a good learning experience--otherwise known as research. First, I did a lot of planning. We were staying at a resort where we would have a full-size kitchen and could… Continue reading Traveling with Bright Line Eating

State Fair Bound

We had some very unexpected and exciting news earlier this week. Fabienne's cake which she entered in the county fair through 4-H was selected to go to the State Fair. It was not marked on her entry card when we picked up her cake from the county fair, so it was a surprise to see… Continue reading State Fair Bound

Fourth of July Recap and Beyond

Good Wednesday afternoon! We are starting the day off with thunderstorms, so who knows what today is going to bring. Hopefully they will move on and we can go on with the day. Here's hoping you had a great Independence Day. We started the day off with a 4-mile race that benefited a local hospital.… Continue reading Fourth of July Recap and Beyond

Independence Day 2019

It's hard to believe that it is July already. Summer just got here, but it seems like it is slipping away so quickly. Before we know it, summer will be gone, it will be fall, and we'll be slipping into winter. After that comes the new year! Sigh. Tomorrow is a big day here in… Continue reading Independence Day 2019
