What a nice thread in honour of our mothers. My wonderful Mom died last September and this weekend we are going to my home town to scatter her ashes at her request. She worked most of her adult life as a bookkeeper (why didn't I get any of those organizational skills?). She loved to have our friends...

Could this really be??

I had to go buy some new pants today as my current ones keep sliding down and actually, I can pull them off without undoing the button. When I tried on new ones I am down a size?! I am thinking maybe it is just this stores sizing but it made me happy anyway!! I am also wearing a shirt today that 2 w...

Yeah, the weekend is over and I wasn't an idiot!

Did I enjoy it? Yes! Would I do it the same way? Yes! On Saturday I had an orange in the middle of the day (crazy kid, I know) and I had an extra slice of bread with dinner and 4 almonds, just cause. On Sunday I made myself 3 pieces of wonderful French Toast for breakfast and had it with butter and ...

Our dinner is simmering away in the slow cooker. It is a bean and vegetable stew and smells wonderful. I just need to throw in some pasta in the last hour. We are not vegetarians but I do try to make at least one vegetarian meal a week (usually it turns into 2 with leftovers). If anyone would like t...

Personally, for me the Habitcal is perfect as is. I either failed or I succeeded period.

I have my Habitcal set up so that I can lo...

Since this thread is talking food, can I be a little off-topic and ask if anyone watches Rachael Ray & has tried her recipes? I have made a few of her recipes and in fact, for dinner tonight I made her Chicken Cacciatore Stoup (thinner than stew, thicker than soup). It was full of veggies and chick...

Are ya' hungry??

First off, I know that hungry or the feeling of being hungry is not a bad thing. In fact, it is a good thing to feel hungry. I think I am eating reasonable plates full at my meal times and yet a couple of hours later I am hungry. Fill me up, oh water, or I will have to go nuts and have a cup of tea!...
