This Little Piggy Went to Market

August 30, 2010


I love going to the Farmers Market!  I don’t always get the chance though because it only runs on Thursdays from 7am to 2:30pm.  Lazy farmers!  LOL. I always try to make a day of it.  I like to walk there and back home, armed with my recycled bags.  After a whole summer of unbearable […]

Yesterday, some friends of mine had to take their beloved kitty Lady Cassandrah to the vet to have her put down. That is the burden of having cats.  You adopt them when they are kittens, and because their life span is so much less than ours, you go through their whole lifetime, and watch them […]

That’s Enough Out of You, Stomach!

August 16, 2010


My revelation about weight gain and subsequent determination to do something about it continues, unabated.  Even after yesterday morning! I’ve started to pay attention to the idea of strength training in addition to my running.  My budget doesn’t allow for a gym membership right now, so I have to do it the old fashioned way, […]

Old Steamy hadn’t seen the light of day for quite a while, tucked away as he was on a top shelf behind the paper towels and fabric softener. Steamy is a good iron, as irons go, but I would rather go all the way to the bowels of the building to the laundry room and […]
