Ethical Company

I just have to share the experience I had the other day that made me aware of the fact that there truly are ethical companies out there! I wanted to order leggings (for dancing, of course) which work the best with my new high tech, robotic leg braces. I searched (and surfed) around for a […]

Eating as a Geography Lesson

My husband and I don’t go out to eat nearly as much as we used to. For one, the choices in our area are not what we view as our “favorite type” of dining out. What we both love is finding a small, family run restaurant owned by people from another country. We eat early […]

FREE Audible Give Away

This year I took my writing a step further and explored the idea of having one of my novels produced as an audio book. I took a webinar, studied articles on line and made the decision to hire a narrator (although one day I hope to narrate other books myself). After the production, the next […]

Forgetting (Again)

So there are times in my blogs I refer to something in a very vague manner…because I can’t remember the details. I know that this is normal aging. In fact, when I was a therapist I took extra continue education in the area of aging, because I interned in convalescent hospitals. So I know in […]

Life Without a Mirror

The other day, one of those when I actually picked a nice shirt out of the closet rather than pull on a t-shirt from the pile of laundry waiting to be folded, a woman smiled at me and told me I was very beautiful. It’s a nice thing to hear. I have taught myself to […]

Sixty of Six: Four years out with Breast Cancer

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer almost four years ago I woke up. Caring for my health in a preventative way shot to the top of the list. I changed my diet and my habits, which included expanding my list of excercises. I did well for two years, then the fear of dying faded […]

Using the Backspace Key

In our world of texts, social medial posts and instant communication I have become an expert at using the backspace button. Deleting words that are best left unsaid. But I have mixed feelings about it. (Yes, I know, my blogs are filled with my mixed feelings! It would be boring if I told you about […]

Stuck at Fourteen

My close friend, Lorie-Jo, understands what it means to be stuck at a certain age. When I try to explain this to other people, I often get blank looks, eye rolls and I can see the thought bubbles–“She’s wacky, you always knew that.” But in two different novels I was reading lately there was reference […]

The Sign Says Men

The recent events have me pondering the changes in how women think. I grew up in a family where women were told we could do anything and as we had no boys in the family comparisons were never in the picture. My mother often stated she wanted her daughters to be completely self sufficient and […]

Repeating Myself

I post a new blog every Friday. This means I have to think of ideas constantly. I keep a log on my phone and jot down ideas for blogs. Then I go to my computer, pull up the list and write. That’s what I’m doing right now. Reviewing my list. Trouble is, I didn’t track […]
