Instagram part deaux

After much thinking and hesitation, I have created an Instagram solely from my bullet journal/writing and reading endeavors.  I was following so many people on my personal IG that I thought it would be easier to separate the two. Ok…to be completely honest., I have THREE instagram accounts.  My personal one, my bullet journal one, […]

Color me happy

I’ve not been feeling well for a while now.  It’s probably all related to my diabetes.  Sometimes it’s just my feet hurting.  Sometimes it’s an overall blah feeling…and sometimes, well, I cannot quite describe how I feel, other than just….off. So, I had my followup with my doctor in regards to my diabetes today and […]

My 2018 reading challenge…

Every year I set a goal to read at least 50 books during the year.  I track it over on goodreads now, but a few years ago, I did on another site, which is no longer in existence.  I finished a book today, and logged in it, then saw that I am 14 books behind […]

Getting a handle on diabetes…

I’m learning to monitor my blood sugar more, and learning about what i can and cannot eat.  It’s hard to change 50 years of eating habits.  it really is…even when your life depends on it. I checked my blood sugar at 7 am, before I left for work.  i had 2 cups of tea with […]

Always running behind…

Mind you,  I am rarely, if ever, late for an appointment or for work.  However, I seem to be running behind on my penpal letters, and my journaling, and my reading.  My intentions are good, but I get busy, or distracted and oops…didn’t get to it. In February, I participated InCoWriMo, which I thoroughly enjoyed, […]

Like a flash…the Olympics are over

The winter Olympics have come and gone and this year, unlike others, I didn’t watch much of it at all. Partially I think, it’s because when I was a kid, we didn’t have all these tv channels so your weekends were filled with sports…especially leading up to the Olympics. My mom and I would watch […]

A letter a day…

Here we are, a few days before the start of InCoWriMo and I am ready to start making a list of people I want to write to during the month of February.  I am excited, and pretty much ready to go, outside of getting some international stamps. I have decided to pick people off the […]

International Correspondence Writing Month (InCoWriMo)

I just signed up for the first time for InCoWriMo, in which, during the month of February, you send a handwritten letter, card or note to someone every day. I’ve never done anything like this before, and I hope I have not bitten off more than I can chew, but as one of the things […]

Happy Birthmonth to me

Has war been declared on men and I missed the memo? Seriously…what is it with suddenly everyone is claiming sexual harrassment? I’m not saying any case is true or not…but it seems like suddenly it’s the thing to do….come out and make allegations (all are allegations to me until proven true). I’m not looking for […]

Forgive my neglectfulness…

Granted, i think I may have only one or two followers of this blog, but still, I feel bad that I have not written in sometime. Life is, for lack of a better excuse, busy as all get out.  I never seem to have enough time in my day to finish everything on my to […]
