My Week: Getting Rid of STUFF

Last Sabbath, the head deacon got up and said he would come pick up donations for the 127 Yard Sale (billed as the longest yard sale in the world). I’d intended to get rid of some of my things before but a lot were too big for me to load into the car so it […]

Raw Vegan Recipe: Fudge

This is my second attempt to make raw vegan fudge and it turned out pretty well. The following is my procedure for adapting the recipe once again. The equipment I used: No VitaMix this time. The main piece is the food processor. Then there’s a bowl, spoon, and bowl scraper. In the background, you can […]

My Week: To Sleep, Perchance to Dream

It’s been another of those weeks. I haven’t gotten to bed on time a single night and I’m about ready to call it a day and hit the hay. That rhymes. Woohoo. I probably lost a whole night’s worth of shuteye AGAIN. This has got to stop! Last Sunday, of course I did some laundry. […]

My Week: Too Pooped to Pop

An Anniversary Is Still an Anniversary

Friday, June 24, 2011, came and went almost without notice except for the fact that it was Roger Haeske’s birthday. It was also my anniversary but it’s a different one now than when it began. In the beginning, it was my anniversary of being 100% raw vegan. It was attended with a lot of hoopla […]

My Week: A Dead Animal—No More!

A week ago yesterday was when I called Dyson about my dead Animal. I blogged about it here. As the woman advised, I called again on Sunday with my vacuum close at hand. The first thing the support person asked for was the serial number. She wasn’t nearly as friendly as the Friday one had […]
