My current diet

A few days ago, I talked about how things are for me now that I’m 55. My body has gone through so many changes over the last several years.

Good morning! I hope you’ve been enjoying your long weekend. Mine has been great!

Not later, not someday, NOW

Good morning, readers! It’s been a quiet, relaxing Sunday morning. I slept in until 7:00 a.m., enjoyed a cup of coffee while reading a book.

Week 4? 8? 20? of quarantine

Good Sunday morning to you!  It’s day one hundred thousand million of staying home and social distancing.  It feels that way, doesn’t it?  I’ll be honest, it really hasn’t been that bad for me personally.  I’m generally a home body, and I have really enjoyed working from home.  I enjoy hanging out with the dogs… Continue reading Week 4? 8? 20? of quarantine
