GOOD GRIEF ENOUGH WITH THE TEETH ALREADY
First of all I want to thank all of you for your sweet comments concerning the death of my brother-in-law. My sister seems to be handling it well and is moving forward. Now, about that teeth, or should I say tooth, issue. My life over the last week has been...

FARMER'S MARKETS
We have several farmer's markets where I live, but I think the Sunday market has become my favorite. It is the same market that they hold downtown on Saturday, but the parking is free and it is a bit closer to where I live.  There is still the same wonderfu...

SIMPLE LIVING MANIFESTO
When I came across this in my Facebook feed a few days ago, I stopped to think about how much of this am I actually practicing. Eat less, move more. I am eating less, but I am also eating more. That may sound like it doesn't make sense, but what it means is...

HO HUM, IT'S RAINING
Somehow yesterday slipped by and I didn't write my Friday post. I thought about it. I planned on it. But somehow the day just got away from me. It was the last of our very warm, sunny fall days and I wanted to relish it. If I could have wrapped my arms arou...

LIFE IS A SERIES OF WAITING
I wait, and I wait.  As a child I waited for birthday parties and summer vacations.  As a teenager I waited for my first kiss, pierced ears, a date for the prom, and a college acceptance letter.  As a young woman I waited for the perfect job, the perfect pa...

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE AGING WOMAN
I am an independent woman, a baby boomer, a woman who is aging, a woman who loves her family, and a woman who has the beginnings of osteoporosis. This osteoporosis thing doesn't come as a surprise to me, but what does come as a surprise is that no doctor ev...

INEVITABILITY
There are so many things in life that we consider inevitable. We are born, we go through ups and downs, we age, we pay taxes, and of course we all must die.  Even though we think we are prepared for the death of a loved one, I am not sure that we ever reall...

LIVE AND LOVE EACH MOMENT
Yesterday brought us another terrible tragedy. This one in Nice, France. As soon as I heard about it I realized that there was a personal component for me. I knew that my son-in-law's parents are vacationing in Nice this week, and so of course I became very...

IF I EVER GET A LIFE
Have you ever had a morning that was so horrendously awful you just wanted a do over? This has been one of those mornings and so I thought in order to bring some serenity into the day I needed a little humor. Thursday night a friend of mine asked me what th...

Life has become very "small" this Winter, have been so sick most of the time and barely been out of the door. Humor is really important to get through dark times, helps us see small pleasures too. Pam in Norway xx

CREATING SPACE WITH BOOKSHELVES
One of the dilemmas we face when moving to a smaller space is what to do with the things we just don't want to get rid of. We all have decorative items and books that we love and those things take up precious space. That is when a bookshelf can really be th...

AUTUMN IS IN THE AIR
Cool mornings and balmy days. Autumn is in the air. There is something so serene in these perfect days with their blue skies and changing light. I find it all very energizing.  I know that winter will be just around the corner, so I am torn between wanting ...
