Time Stands Still for No One

Sunday While I was having my weekly visit with DD, I put a load of clothes in to wash. The cycle I put it on is supposed to wash them for 15 minutes, then spin, then rinse and do a final spin. Far longer than the 15 minutes had elapsed when I checked it and […]

The Raw Vegan: Part LIX, The Wedding

Even though DS1 had to give up his plan to graduate from college, he had stayed with the male chorus. They’d toured the country and he went abroad with them, as well. He brought back tales of life in what was then the Soviet Union. I’ve always wanted to travel but I had to be […]

Tired of Raw Food

I don’t like the way it smells, feels, or looks. It stinks. I’m through with it as soon as the supply I have is gone. Did I get your attention? That was a mean, dirty trick. Sorry about that but I couldn’t help it. I guess I have a lot of my mother in me. […]

Another One for the Books

Sunday DD and I had our weekly visit after missing last week. We’d chatted on Google talk several times in the meanwhile. I attended a most interesting wedding today. A young couple from my church got married. The groom is a distant cousin, I’m told. His mother is into genealogy and found we are swinging […]

The Raw Vegan: Part LVIII, The Orthodontist

DD had, by now, lost her baby teeth and her grownup teeth had come in. They weren’t arranged in the most attractive fashion by Mother Nature as one of the ladies in the church noticed. Due to an unfortunate accident and a resulting lawsuit, she had a lot of money and she wanted to use […]

It’s Another Weekly Update

Sunday DS2 went to the continental breakfast again and was unimpressed but what can you expect for free? I had a little over a quart of fresh-squeezed OJ and a banana/blueberry/spinach/water smoothie. Did that make me a better person? No, but it does make me healthier. I blended up a banana/romaine/water smoothie to take with […]

A Raw Food Dilemma

AKA Green Bananas, Tough Romaine and Wintertime Tomatoes. I’ve been on a search for ripe bananas and it looks like it won’t be successful until sometime next week. The tomato situation stretches out much farther than that. Last week I was finally up to here with the cardboard-y tomatoes available this time of year and […]

The Raw Vegan: Part LVII, The Oncologist

One thing I eventually learned was to keep my mouth shut if I had a potentially serious health issue. That took time, though, and not enough of it had passed yet. My eating hadn’t improved though I was still vegetarian. I’d never had any kind of urge to eat dead animal bodies and that hadn’t […]

The First Full Week 2009

Sunday My good night’s sleep I planned to have went down the drain. The sermon yesterday was about how we could better ourselves spiritually, mentally, and physically. The speaker pointed out how much more benefit is gotten from hours of sleep before midnight than the hours after. I was so wound up when I went […]

The Raw Vegan: Part LVI, Hot Flash!

Unlike many of my female friends and acquaintances, I’d never had many “woman” problems. When women get together, we talk. We compare notes about childbirth, monthly cycles and menopause. The juicy gossip that goes on in the prime time TV shows is largely imaginary, for sure. Oh, there’s a little sprinkled here and there but […]
