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...

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...

LIVING LIFE WITH MORE COMPASSION
How often do we see someone who we think has a perfect life? Have you said to yourself, "I wish I had her life", or "how come she gets everything she wants"? Often we feel angry when we think of what we consider the inequities of life, but how much more sim...

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
