Rants and Raves for Today

  Ok…I’m all about positive vibes and such. I totally believe in whatever I send out I will receive back. That includes any negative vibes that I may have. I have been contemplating posting this for a while now and have always decided against it. I did not want to send out these negative vibes…especially in print. The thing is…

A Swing…A Fav Place For Me In My Childhood…

…& I’m finding during my adulthood! Lol. I haven’t been on one in YEARS! You should have seen my face and heard my laughter. It was priceless, in my opinion, and I recommend that everyone find a park and get to swinging. You will have such the blast! It’s a great place for me to say my affirmations as well.…

New York Here I Come!

Well actually it’s NJ. I’m heading there for a wonderful seminar that’s going on for the weekend. How am I getting there? Greyhound. I haven’t rode a Greyhound bus since 1996! Let me tell you why. When I was stationed in Georgia back in ’96 I was the ‘lucky’ one to sit next to the Cuddler on my way back…

GYIT: Days 4 Acceptance & 5 Forgiveness

I lumped these two days together in this post for a reason. To me they were linked and needed to remain that way. Both of these days hit hard on my mental. I was told that this was normal and to roll with it. Acceptance I sat for most of this day trying to figure out what I can truthfully…

GYIT: Day 3…Awareness

My day 3 has much to be desired. Let me just say that this day was a total bust for me. Not because of my being aware of factors playing a big roll in my life. No. I have been aware of and have been working on my financial health, mental health, physical health, etc for some time now. My…

Hey now…I’m part of the VW revolution! Isn’t she a beauty? I found her in Virginia…I’m also thinking of naming her that. Lol. I name just about everything that I own. My GPS is named Sheila!

Oh Blog…How I Have Neglected Thee!

  Many, many apologies to my dear blog whom I have neglected for weeks. I keep saying that I will make an effort to post something AT LEAST once a week, if not daily as in the old days with my old blog. I just cannot get myself to click on Add New under the Posts menu. Why is that?…

Doing Brunch in DC

As an effort to get me out of the house, my sister took me to Adams Morgan Saturday morning. We commenced to getting our hair done and have brunch at a spot named Drink More Bourbon (www.bourbondc.com). All I can say is ‘delish’. I started off with a Mimosa and had their Biscuits & Gravy. That was probably a no-no…

Being Sick Sucks!

I work with children daily. So it was inevitable that I catch their cooties. I am sitting here at my laptop, breathing in through my mouth most of the time, blowing my nose every three minutes, and trying to focus on the task at hand. Yup…pretty much miserable! So my first blog in three weeks is pretty much a little…

Interesting Question!

  So I got asked an interesting question today. The question was “Do you blog?” My answer was “I used to. I stopped when I moved here.” That answer got me to thinking…why did I stop blogging? I was on a roll when I was in the Midwest. I practically had a post everyday. I blogged about sleeping in, surfing…

No Early Night for Me

  My plan was to turn in early and catch some Zs. That was obviously not in the cards since I am still awake and blogging away on my phone. I am so exhausted from my day. No worries though…I am very close to passing out. I have another full day tomorrow. I love what I do…and not many people…

Being Sick Kicks Rocks!

La Mia Cucina: Baked Salmon in Foil

The first Friday of Lent is in the bag! Below you will find what I made for dinner. It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. The tomato mixture went well with the Salmon and steamed veggies are always a hit. The red vino was an added bonus. 🙂 My choice? A bottle of Signano Chianti Colli…
