Caffeine and adrenaline

I am a regular coffee drinker. At work I usually have one cup in the morning. The days I work from home and weekends I usually have two cups. A couple of weeks ago I was really tired at work and upped my coffee intake to two cups. By Wednesday of that week I had […]


Keeping calm, simple for Monthly Challenge

I asked my readers for ideas for the November Monthly Challenge. I got a lot of great ideas and used them. I saved one idea for Go Fit Girl’s December Monthly Challenge. We’ll get to that shortly. December is a tough month for me and for many others as well. We are so busy with […]


Walking a golf course and then some

Curt and I drove down to Monterey on Friday night. That’s one of the great things about our life and lifestyle … our friend Tag, who is a professional golfer, texted Curt on Monday night asking if he should save tickets for us for the weekend. Before I hit the sack we had decided that […]

Just for me

I took an extra long weekend with having Friday and Monday off as well as Saturday and Sunday. I gave myself an extended weekend for a variety of reasons: I needed to get stuff done I don’t have time for in my spare time; I wanted to do some de-cluttering on our storage unit and […]


Caffeine free?

Since I have been sick I haven’t had coffee. It’s been almost two weeks. My last cup of coffee was Christmas Eve morning. Though it is possible I had some Christmas morning. Because I wasn’t sick quite yet. But I think I had a fuu-fuu white chocoate Ghiradelli drink thing. And it was good! OK, […]
