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...

DEALING WITH EMOTIONAL VAMPIRES
We have all encountered them. They are the people who seem to suck the life right out of you. They steal your energy and leave you feeling confused and exhausted. Are they narcissistic, histrionic, antisocial? They can be any of these. The problem for us is...

FINDING SERENITY IN THE SIMPLE SOUNDS OF LIFE
The rain taps against my window panes, stirring memories of days long gone. Steamy days on a front porch where a cacophony rings in my ears. The squeak of an old metal glider. The slamming of the wooden screen door. The bickering of children playing card ga...

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...

OVERCOMING SELF DOUBT
Just like a thief in the night, it sneaks up on you, that niggling little voice that erodes your self confidence and leaves you wondering if you are doing something wrong or possibly not doing anything right. The next thing you know you are thinking that yo...

KEEP SWIMMING
It's summer, the time when you want to jump in a pool or the ocean and start swimming. Maybe when you get to the pool you see how crowded it is with other swimmers and you stay out of the water because it seems like there just isn't enough room for you. Or ...

LAZY SUMMER DAYS AWAIT
I have decided that I definitely need some lazy summer days. All of the stress I have had lately has caused my autoimmune problems to kick up and I have been getting very little done because of it. Just stretched too thin I guess.  I set myself down this pa...
