Turning 50

I look forward to turning 50. It's such a round, even number to me -- halfway to 100, basically half my life, if I reach 100 like my grandma did. (My other grandma is working on it!) I know so much more now than I did 25 years ago. I now know quite a bit about... Continue Reading →

My Vegetarianism

Some people think that the terms, "vegan" and "vegetarian" are interchangeable. They're not. Vegans don't eat/use anything from an animal. For example, they don't drink milk or eat eggs. And if you're knitting a sweater for a vegan friend or family member, be sure to use yarn that isn't wool. Vegetarians, on the other hand,... Continue Reading →

There seems to be 2 camps when it comes to books: those who prefer books in print, and those who prefer a digital version, or e-book (Kindle device/app, et al).

Bucket List Items

Three items on my bucket list (things I want to do before I die/"kick the bucket") that I've done are going off-roading, going to a Big Ten championship, and going to Savannah, Georgia, maybe in that order but I'm not sure. Off-Roading: Last December my husband and I went off-roading in Las Vegas, Nevada. That was... Continue Reading →

Relationship with Food

This post is prompted by Working on Us, Week 5 on Beckie's Mental Mess. (My answers to week 5 are here.) My relationship with food is unhealthy. What I eat is dictated by my emotions. They decide what I'll eat, how much I eat, when to eat, and why to eat. I eat when I'm... Continue Reading →

Fun Fact: I Can’t Swim

My dad threw me in a swimming pool when I was 7. He thought that I would immediately learn to swim in order to save myself. Well, I didn't. I sank slowly to the bottom. My dad pulled me out of the pool. I never was angry with him for doing this, probably because I... Continue Reading →
