I never really thought about what was in my wine . . . until I did a wine tasting in Boston. I was just like a lot of people, hitting the wine aisle in the grocery store for a quick and easy grab and go bottle. I reveled in the no fuss shopping experience; walking happily to…… Continue reading More than just a pretty label!
We walked along the Florida gulf shore sharing our views on life, our children, and our dreams for the future. We held hands at times, until the shells and driftwood became unmanageable to carry. We took in all that surrounded us; the sand, the surf, and the people who were doing what we were doing – sharing a…… Continue reading A chance meeting
Why doesn’t ‘Generic John’ need makeup? Since I was a blossoming teen, I have been using makeup to ‘boost’ my beauty. When I was growing up in the 1980’s, women were bombarded with images of models boasting flowing locks, flawless makeup, and lean body types. Young teens like me desperately wanted to keep up, to be more than just a ‘Plain Jane’, and…… Continue reading ‘Generic John’ vs. ‘Plain Jane’
I was about eight years old and my younger sister around three when we were frozen in time on an old wooden bench on a cool summer’s day in 1972. Undoubtedly we had just been running up and down the silvery planks of the boardwalk just moments before this photo was taken. Mom or Dad must have called our names, “Kathy, Lynda, . . ., look…… Continue reading Frozen in time
Don’t hide your “Glutei Maximi”, and don’t just count on those yoga pants to hide them either! I have been exercising regularly since I was thirteen; that’s a staggering 38 years. I went from freely running around the school yard and spending summers in the pool, to high school and college team sports. Today, I still consider myself an athlete and someone…… Continue reading Loving the “Maximi” you’re blessed with!
Restaurant meal prep; what’s really on my food? Having someone else prepare a meal is a luxury; whether it be bellying up to dear ole’ mom’s delectable chicken parmesan, a diner cook’s simple rendition of home fries and eggs, or a chef’s gourmet take on steak tips; there’s no prep, no cleanup, no worries. We sit back, enjoy being…… Continue reading Numb to process!
The groundhog spoke on February 2, 2016 to his faithful followers; the clouds gathered that fateful day, blocking any remote chance of the little fellow seeing his shadow. On that same day, the ground shook in the North East where people fell to their knees, bowing to the almighty ‘hog’. No more hiding in our burrows; the time would quickly be upon the masses where the…… Continue reading Soak it up!
If you’re lucky enough to live by the beach, take a walk and gather some driftwood, and then get creative! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder – at least I think so. I have been gathering driftwood for months, maybe even years, and finally found a purpose for it other than storing it in a basket…… Continue reading Driftwood Art
Being flexible when it comes to your exercise routine. I recently had a cortisone shot in my left wrist, and the doc thought hitting the archaic and hard 1983 punching bag wouldn’t be the best idea if I wanted optimal results from the shot (a bit of the ole’carpal tunnel going on). So, I said, ‘ok, I…… Continue reading No excuses!
