A HEAVY HEART
Several years ago I was introduced to the books of Dr. Wayne Dyer, and his words have brought me comfort and a new way of looking at life since that time.  Yesterday, Dr. Dyer left this world after a long battle with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. He was tea...

RECOGNIZE WHO YOU HAVE BECOME
I have been thinking a lot about this lately, and when a friend said something unkind to me this weekend it sort of brought it home to roost.  source unknown There was a time when I was very concerned about my looks and about having the best of everything. ...

REDISCOVERING THE ESSENTIAL ME
Last week, gazing at my reflection in the mirror, something I seem to enjoy doing less and less these days, I wondered where, when, and how I had lost the essence of who I am.  I'm not talking about the physical me, I know where those changes came from. Lik...

SIMPLY SIT AND BREATHE
Sorry that I have been absent for the last week. I became ill while I was in Georgia last week and I am needing some time off to just sit and breathe. So I will be taking the next few days to heal and find some serenity. I hope to be back to my normal sched...

SURRENDER TO THE FLOW
You know what they say about the best laid plans. They often go awry.  I remember when I was younger I would get upset when plans didn't go the way they were supposed to, but I've learned to go with the flow more as I have gotten older, to live more in the ...

EMBRACE YOUR SIMPLE NEEDS
This morning as I took my daily walk I thought about how really simple my needs are, and how when I embrace those simple needs I find happiness and serenity. We live in a very complex world.  It's a world where we are bombarded 24/7 by the media and the int...

WHEN AND HOW TO STOP PRETENDING
We all do it at one time or another. We pretend that things are okay when they're not. We pretend that we feel well when we don't.  We pretend that what someone has said or done to us is okay when it's not. I am a firm believer in picking your battles and t...

I HATE SAUERKRAUT

BLOGGING, A COMPLICATED MILIEU
A milieu is a person's social environment, and in the blogging world that environment is complicated. As bloggers, we set out in this world for many different reasons. Some of us may have started blogging as a type of personal diary. Maybe we wanted to shar...

GOING "AFOWL" IN HOTLANTA
  I finally made it to Atlanta, where my first day seemed to be taken up with the feathered members of the family. Morning comes early and the first thing that happens is shooing the chickens from their coop.  The girls seemed pretty happy to get back out i...

Good Morning Laura, How marvellous to have fresh eggs for breakfast. There is certainly nothing like a newly laid egg.
 My daughter used to live in Atlanta so I know it quite well and I am pleased to say it is  where I enjoyed the famous Georgia Peaches.  
Have fun.
Best Wishes
Daphne

ROLL OUT THOSE SUMMER DAYS
"Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer......".  The days are steamy and the nights are languorous, and I love it.  I want to wrap it all up in little boxes tied with pretty bows, hide them away, and pull them out throughout the rest of the year.  ...

AGING DOESN'T HAVE TO BE PAINFUL
I recently had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with four other bloggers and a renowned gynecologist, Dr. Mary Jane Minkin in a Google Hangout, to talk about changes women can expect before, during, and after menopause. Like many women in this age rang...
