Life lessons on the treadmill.

No fancy pictures of  food, or recipes today. I was not feeling well, and there is very little to report on food wise. Breakfast was a little bit of granola and a cup of coffee with cream and vanilla agave. Lunch would be baked sweet potato and a small piece of fish left over from […]

Here is a combo post about Monday and Tuesday regarding food. Monday- Breakfast was plain organic yogurt, homemade granola, blueberries and orange […]

2.24.13. Oscar Sunday

Sunday was packed with things to do, all good stuff and while there were a few curve balls I managed to eat very well today! Started out with getting together for brunch with Melinda and Bob at GreenDog cafe, this has become one of my go to’s for eating out. We were long overdue for […]

Bend Over.

Sometimes the scab is ripped off with such force that there is nothing but the rage of old scars underneath. I spend many years unable to bend over, unable to tie my shoes, unable to pick a napkin up if it fell off the lap I did not have. If I were eating in public […]

Ice,ice baby.

Last night as I laid in bed listening to the ping on the tin roof beyond my bedroom window, there was a sense of calm and stillness amidst the stinging hits of the ice.  It feels good to be me. I can’t remember ever feeling that way. This morning the stillness and sense of calm […]

I scream, you scream, we all scream for….

Well not ice cream, I can tell you that much. I came home on my lunch hour to feed Ms. June lunch and I was so excited to see the big brown box next to my front door. It was the Cuisinart ice cream maker  I order at the beginning of the week, and I […]

2.20.13 Wednesday.

Having a puppy around is all about routine. You get used to the process, the procedure of what needs to get done in order for all the needs of that puppy to be met. Sweet June Carter has made our house a hopping hotspot of sheer puppy madness! Puppies also get under feet in a […]

2.19.13 Tuesday

I just kinda figured I would not be having anybody over for dinner in the next 40 days. I didn’t know how easy it would be to put together a really good dinner still following the “real food” guidelines. If you want to know the truth, it was not that hard. I started my day […]

2.18.13 Monday

Not the best day I have had this week. Oh wait, it’s Monday I guess things can only get better! It was not horrible, just not what I thought it was going to be, but the day got better as it went on and ended with a nice evening walk with Hannah, Oscar and Linds. […]

2.17.13- Sunday

Many good things to write about on this day. The sun is out, and  I am not sure if I have  been walking around in a sugar coma half my life but I really felt great today. I even ran down the stairs this morning, the dogs are normally the first ones down waiting for […]

2.16.13- Saturday

Saturday mornings afford some luxuries that workdays do not. However, sleeping late is not one of them, so I was up early tending to Ms. June Carter and the others. Everyone was fed, frolicked around playing then settled back down before I made a cup of coffee and some breakfast for myself. I normally do […]

40 days of the good stuff.

I am not catholic, heck I am not even nailed down to one church. Never been a fan of the dramatics that come with organized religion.  I go where it feels right when it feels right. I know some people might think that is a down rite shame, but it works for me and the […]

June in February.

I think most people who foster dogs get asked many times how is it possible to not want to keep them all? I have to say there was a time that I thought I could not do it either, and I would often lament thinking that I too would want to keep them all, the […]

A pathetic binge.

It happened the day after I found out Lindsey was going to Knoxville. I was a bit of a mess, and in a state of shock telling myself I  “deserved” the comfort of food. It was expected, sadly even I EXPECTED myself to do what I had always done, so I set off after work […]

Come on home.

I found myself with a few free hours while I was in Florida this week. Many people took that opportunity to flee with the masses including a bazillion enthusiastic kids toward one of the theme parks on Disney property, I needed wanted to do something else. I sat on the edge of the bed in […]
