In our “neck of the woods”, we are now in the midst of a bit of a heat wave. When you couple the heat with our constant high humidity (we live very near the Atlantic Ocean) you definitely have the makings of an uncomfortable and a rather miserable day.…
It's not difficult to make your own lemonade. I make the syrup the night before and chill it. Then, the next morning I just squeeze the lemons, stir everything together and enjoy.

A few years ago we bought a new mattress for our master bedroom bed. The old one had been kicking around for… well, I don’t know how many years!  It was still in pretty good shape though, so we upgraded the twin bed in our guest room with our old double…

Why is it, that as a society, we openly discuss some common health issues, but not others? We meet for coffee and tell anyone who will listen about our hypertension, gallbladder disease, insomnia, arthritis, bladder infections and kidney stones, but we…

No Churn Rhubarb Ice-Cream ~ You may have noticed that many of my recent recipes have had a bit of a recurring theme. The theme? Rhubarb! As I mentioned in an earlier post, my sister lives in the country and has a big rhubarb patch on her property. She…
Perfect and was so deliciously different from any other flavour of ice-cream I have ever tasted! Rhubarb Ice-Cream is definitely a MUST-TRY!

Strawberry Muffins ~ I love everything about July! First of all…it is a LONG way from our dark, cold and snowy winter. Second, and just as important is the fact that everywhere you look there are baskets and baskets of fresh, local, luscious, juicy, sweet…
As you may or may not know, I am a self-proclaimed muffinaholic. So it only stands to reason that I would pair my adored strawberry with my muffin addiction

This Summer Vegetable Pasta Salad is one of my “go-to” summer salad recipes. It is really simple to make and you can customize the vegetables to meet your family’s specific likes. You can also easily cut the recipe in half or even double it to meet the…
Summer Vegetable Pasta Salad is so easy to make and a nice change from potato salad. Add meat to the salad for a complete meal or serve as a side.

I cannot remember when we first started making this outstanding Spaghetti Cheese Casserole. It feels like it has been part of our dinner repertoire since forever! It is one of those “old style” recipes that you sometimes find in community type cookbooks…

Like many in our age group, my husband and I are now empty nesters. Our children have not only moved out, but they have both relocated to different…and yes, faraway parts of the country. Our son has lived in Ontario for many years now and that always…

As a nurse, I am unfortunately, very aware of the devastating effects of Huntington disease.  Early in my career I had a patient with Huntington disease and to say Huntington disease is a heartbreakingly catastrophic disease, would be a gross…

Lately, you may have noticed I have been on a bit of a rhubarb kick! My sister lives in the country and has a big rhubarb patch on her property. She is very generous with her rhubarb and made the mistake of telling me to help myself…so, I have decimated…

Introduction

I first had the idea to start a blog for "older moms" when I started noticing a lot of blogs were aimed toward moms with young children. I applaud these and the help, companionship, information and support they provide and I still remember those days well.....well, most days I remember them well!!  However, my kids are older and I'm no longer in my 30's. Some of the information I was getting was no longer relevant and some of the information I was seeking was not out there. I felt there must be others out there who felt the same.

I like to blog about Everyday Life, Recipes, Food, Health, Living Green, Reviews and whatever else may be happening in this older mommy's life!  So here I am and I hope I'm not alone!
