Eating my Vegetables
Friday, August 06, 2010      5 comments

The past few times I've gone grocery shopping, it's astounded me to realize my grocery list is 3/4's vegetables. I NEVER thought I'd see the day I'd be happily consuming so many vegetables. To make things easier, I've started pre-cutting... Read more
A RESTFUL DAY
Friday, July 23, 2010      4 comments

I feel well, owing in part to an increase in my thyroid medication and, in part, to the emotional construct of 'moving on'. My perspective has shifted. Rather than seeing myself as a woman who's been dumped, I'm beginning to see myself as a fre... Read more
A Bunion, a Scooter, an Upcoming Visit
Friday, July 16, 2010      3 comments

I didn't know what a bunion was until a painful lump developed on my outer foot near the big toe. My doctor diagnosed the problem and told me to check out the on-line resource 'medlineplus' to learn about bunions. Medlineplus is a servic... Read more
Back to Stage One
Monday, July 12, 2010      4 comments

STARREACHER (my friend Cristina) and I have worked steadily over the past four or five years to improve our lifestyles. We've each set and met several goals and we both look and feel better for the effort. Although we're proud of oursel... Read more
Sixty-two pounds lost and gone forever!
Sunday, July 11, 2010      5 comments

My friend, Cristina, recently rented an apartment in my neighborhood. It's a stunning apartment on the top floor of a high-rise building just down the street from my building. This afternoon, I walked to her place for a visit. I stayed... Read more
A Near Crisis
Saturday, July 10, 2010      5 comments

How odd that my last blog entry should mention homeless people because - but for the Lord for His timely intervention - I was very nearly homeless myself. The intervention come on Thursday morning by way of an unexpected message left on... Read more
In the midst of a heatwave
Thursday, July 08, 2010      4 comments

I am so grateful for central air-conditioning. Dave is a devout environmentalist and in respect of these values we did not have air-conditioning in our home. Rather- when the inevitable summer heat-waves became burdensome - we made due w... Read more
A lovely Canada Day!
Friday, July 02, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday was Canada Day and it coincided with my friend, Cristina's, first year anniversary of Quitting smoking. To celebrate a smoke-free year, I treated Cristina to dinner at a lovely restaurant. It was wonderful to see so many peopl... Read more
Toward Closure
Wednesday, June 30, 2010      3 comments

I had a most wonderful visit with my son when he came to pick up ALF. It did my heart good to see him, looking so well and happy and - as always happens when I spend time with one of my children - I feel revitalized and most assuredly loved. ... Read more
Happy Cat
Saturday, June 26, 2010      6 comments

Although Dave and I didn't have any children (I have two sons from previous marriages) we had a small family of creatures. Namely a ALF the cat, Rosie the turtle and Harriet the bunny. Dave was most fond of Rosie and though I would have loved... Read more
Spontaneous
Wednesday, June 23, 2010      2 comments

Due to my health issues, I'm not often able to do things spontaneously. Going on an outing - even a simple outing like going to the mall - takes preparation. For example I can't usually shower and go out on the same day. Taking a shower uses m... Read more
Re-boot the System
Thursday, June 17, 2010      1 comments

On my doctor's advice, I've made changes to my medications. One of the changes was stopping the medication that caused me to feel so absurdly hungry all the time (see post 6/7/2010). With that medication out of my system, my appetite retu... Read more
Daily Swims, New Bathing Suit
Tuesday, June 15, 2010      4 comments

For all the false starts we made, my sister and I finally developed the habit of taking an (almost) daily swim. We've had to overcome a few barriers, including our own laziness (Why swim when we can sit on the couch and watch television?) and... Read more
Side Effects
Monday, June 07, 2010      3 comments

I began a new medication a few weeks ago, one that has the unfortunate side-effect of increasing my appetite. After eating healthy foods in moderation for several years and feeling happy and content with my diet, I was suddenly ravenous an... Read more
Six Months in my new apartment
Wednesday, June 02, 2010      4 comments

I'm so grateful for this apartment. This is the first time I've lived in a home with central air conditioning and, as someone COPD, I can tell you it's a slice of heaven to breathe this clean & cool air. I went out on the terrace, a few ... Read more
