Robin Hood
Tuesday, November 07, 2006      0 comments

When I was a little girl, my most-loved hero was Robin Hood. He robbed from the rich and gave to the poor and had marvelous adventures along the way. Flash forward, I'm no longer a girl rather a woman on the verge of fifty. My eye-glass b... Read more

Yesterday, my sweetheart planted tulip bulbs in our front garden. Come Spring, we'll enjoy a wonderful burst of colour. For my sweetheart's green thumb and the promise of flowers, I'm grateful. ... Read more
Warm Coat
Saturday, November 04, 2006      0 comments

During last evening's shopping trip with my friend Cristina, I found the perfect winter coat at a (more than) reasonable price. The coat is black leather-like with a nice belt and faux fur (also black) at the cuffs and collar. It falls to ... Read more

My sweetheart gifted me with a lovely pendant necklace and matching earing's. They are particularly beautiful and I'm most appreciative. I love to give and receive small tokens of love. It means the world to me. I'm grateful for ... Read more
Matching sheets
Wednesday, November 01, 2006      0 comments

When I went shopping yesterday, I bought a new set of sheets. The colour (a pretty red) matches my duvet cover, my blanket and my pillow cases. Now all of my bed clothes are colour co-ordinated. Making my bed is not something I lik... Read more
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
Tuesday, October 31, 2006      0 comments

Before the trick-or-treaters come to my door, I plan to decorate my front porch with garland, candle-lit jack-o-lanterns and my newly purchased haunted house. The haunted house lights up and makes scary noises. It will add much to the decor. ... Read more

On the 31st of October, my partner and I will have lived eighteen years together! We chose to celebrate last evening so that we could be home on the 31st to give out candy to the trick-or-treaters. To celebrate, we went to a nice... Read more

Last evening, my sweetie and I watched the Rocky Horror Picture Show. We simply love this classic film and watching it together has become a pre-Halloween tradition. For this wonderful film and the opportunity to watch it with my sw... Read more
My innovative self
Friday, October 27, 2006      0 comments

I have the most wonderful, high-back, executive office chair that I use while sitting at the computer. It's terribly comfortable except for a lack of lumbar support. I've been looking (through the shops) for a suitable cushion to no avail. ... Read more

I had a lovely time yesterday, shopping with a friend. I bought a duvet cover, a lovely sweater for my sweetie (anniversary present) and a Halloween decoration (a haunted house that sits on my coffee table - it was 50% off). It was a fun ti... Read more
Low-fat Swiss Cheese
Tuesday, October 24, 2006      0 comments

I buy Swiss cheese in the deli section of the grocery store. It is pre-sliced (very thin) and comes in a plastic, zip-lock bag that can be used over and over again. It makes a healthy sandwich and tastes good with raw vegetables. Fo... Read more
Halloween

Resilience
Saturday, October 21, 2006      0 comments

I spend a lot of time feeling unwell and/or in pain. A bad spell can knock me down for days, weeks, months at a time, leaving me unable to accomplish anything beyond the daily business of living. It's heartening then, to experience a relativel... Read more
Online Banking
Friday, October 20, 2006      0 comments

Of all the innovative practices made available though the advent of the personal computer and the Internet, online banking is one of my most appreciated advancements. Prior to online banking, I had a haphazard way of keeping my checkbook balanc... Read more
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Thursday, October 19, 2006      0 comments

In line with medical understanding, my doctor advised me to stop using hormone replacement therapy - which I had been using to offset menopause symptoms - in order to minimize my risk of breast cancer. So, after five years of relative co... Read more
