Getting closer to 'old enough to brag about my age'. We have 2 sons who grew up in the kitchen. Our 8 grandchildren enjoy helping in the kitchen.

Foster grandparenting with children 10, 8, and 6. Quite the challenge when they are here about 12 hours a day. At least, our toy collection is getting well used.

Enjoys travelling for the architecture and culture (including food). Best parts are the people we meet both on the ship and in port. The foods we try are usually very tasty. Funniest time was our version of 'Cappuccino & Gelato'. The basic rule was try one or the other in each port of call. Fascinating variations. Walking around the waterfront in Genoa, we got distracted and enjoyed both plus a huge pastry. (Took me two or 3 days to eat my share).

So many things remind me of fun we've had in our travels. Getting lost can be a great adventure if we are creative about communicating when we don't know the language.

Living inland, I miss the ocean and mountains,

Apr. 10, 2021. When I started this journey, I wanted to get under 200 from almost 210. Mindful eating, and I made it.
Revised my goal to 195, well, if I can do that, I'll go for 189.
I was getting excited and when I reached 190, I decided I could get to 185. Wow. I did it. According to one doctor, That is my optimum weight.
Today I am at 184.7. Last week it was 184.5. For 3 consecutive days I had gains.
My hubby (His Honor - because he is bossy) was under 273 yesterday. Today he is over 274. That is progress since he started me on this journey. He was almost 280. No need to mention his habitual behavior and moans about pain. Proper exercise and actual movement would help him.
At one time, there was only a 10-20 pound difference in our weights. Last year he was about 70 pounds heavier. Now it is 90 pounds. He has been to so many classes directed at better health but considers low-nutrition foods essential.

    Thank you for reading my blog “Fitting in with Mother Nature or NOT”
    The power company does have regulations to protect the lake but only right on the shoreline.
    There was a LOT of local opposition even to that.
    There are warnings about the dangers of clearcutting, erosion, poisonous runoff and resulting damage but some do not care. Their freedom to do as they wish is more important than the well being of our shared environment.
    We had a mama deer give birth to twins in our yard. It was like watching Bambi struggling to stand up.

    Thank you for reading my blog “Take the time – thank you card 53 years late” and sharing your story. This past year has brought back so many memories of those who have helped me through the years. So important to thank them before it’s too late.
