  • This is indeed frustrating. I have found many misplaced items in the refrigerator. You mentioned groceries. Maybe it fell off when you were putting those away. Tina in CA Edit: Just read that you checked already.
  • Barbara-How about “move more better.” Thinking-Generally I do a lot of thinking in the shower. I plan a lot of meals, create recipes, write drafts of my work, etc in there. It’s undistracted time. Rebecca-I’m so glad you’re having time with the boys! I know you’ll enjoy every minute. Tracey-If you were in Texas and didn’t…
  • We have a pair at one of the lakes we hike. We also have a pair on another trail we hike. We don't often see them, but we do see them from time to time. Tina in very wet CA
  • Well, I heard there was a tornado warning here a few days ago, but never got a notification. Today, I did. The rain is coming in buckets at the moment. Being from the Midwest, I don't see this as tornado-y conditions. Interesting weather we're having. Today is roast all the veggies in the fridge before they go bad day. The…
  • This spoke to me. Tina in CA
  • Good day to all! Allie-Sorry for your loss. Your aunt sounded very special. Kim-sorry to hear about Levi. :'( Those of you having aches and pains, I send healing vibes! Speaking of aches and pains, I may actually be getting my chronic feet pain under control. Or maybe my body has just accepted it and I don’t feel it…
  • Tracey-I love the cards. Almost makes me want to start making cards. Michelle in NV-So sorry about your grandmother. I hope everything turns out as she wishes it to. Also, it's raining cats and dogs here. Get ready! Every year (and throughout it) you all remind me I need to get my backside in gear with all the estate…
  • Good morning! I had a lovely time meeting and walking the boardwalk with Rori. It was so nice to meet one of you. I hope I get to meet more of you at some point. Heather and Rita-I like your artwork! I agree, they'd make great greeting cards or towels. Anna-Congrats on the jeans! We are all preparing for another deluge of…
  • Lanette-I’ve cooked fresh shiitakes and basically use them like any other mushroom. I slice them and toss them in omelette, soups, stir them in a Marsala sauce over pasta, etc. They do have a different texture, but they taste good, especially when mixed with other types of mushrooms. Sorry about your hen. Rosemarie-if you…
  • Lisa-I am in love with Egg. She makes me really miss my cats (who have all been gone for nearly 15 years). Showers-I hate that I "have" to take them, but once I'm in there, I don't want to get out. And I hate being rushed through my shower. NSV-Since we are somewhat stuck in our home, I keep wandering around looking for…
  • Rita-Congrats on 6 months sober! That’s a great achievement! Annie-Such a difficult position. He is an adult, however. You can only do so much. Rebecca-You look quite toasty warm in that shawl. It's been raining a lot the past few days. It started on Saturday and rained about .3 inch, then .25 yesterday and today, it's…
  • Lisa-Love the corner drawers!!! I wish the people who remodeled our kitchen would have used those! Rori-Message received and replied to. Hope to meet you soon! I'm all for meeting in Tasmania! Need to find a business reason to go though. :D Went to a yoga class today for the first time in many years. It was a good one. I…
  • Vicki-Glad you made it back safely! Debbie-I actually was just thinking about a soda stream. I'll look into it. Tina in CA where it's really warm today (75F/23.9C). The storms come this weekend.
  • Rori-I’m on your route. I sent you a friend request so we can possibly meet up. Debbi-I’ve tried lemon, lime and other enhancers to the water. It’s still water. Even tea can’t fool my brain. :) I love the sponginess of the halloumi. I made a fab butter chicken tonight for the mister to take to the desert with him this…
  • Welcome, Sarah. Hop right in whenever you feel it. Barbie-I listened to the series about how Cascateli came to be, but it is just far too pricey for me, especially when I can make fresh Spaetzle in about 10 minutes. One day, I’ll splurge if I actually see it in the store. I don't have a lot going on right now. I am trying…
  • Ginny-The photo is gorgeous. Thanks for changing your storage for us! 😀 Margaret-so sorry to hear it. Hugs. Tracey-if you close and reopen WTForecast, it’ll change the “blurb.” I think I did it 5 times in a row and then it started over. The movie Inside Out-I started this on an airplane several years ago and still haven’t…
  • Kate-I have read 2 Robert Galbraith books. I enjoyed them. She wrote some detective novels under JK Rowling too. I tried one just before the holidays and couldn’t get into it. I love Nightmare before Christmas. Disney licensed it many years ago and transforms the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland into a wonderful Nightmare…
  • Hello to all. Well, it's been raining again, but we don't seem to get enough to make much of a difference. It just makes everything messy. I hope all of you with real weather are staying warm and safe. The gym-I hate them. They're too loud and it takes too much time to get through my workout because I usually have to wait…
  • That's a lot of weight! Congrats.
  • Terri-Sorry about your losses. :'( Joy and Rita- Great health news. Linda- The wolf whistles stopped coming my way in my late 40s. Kylia-I made a recipe with chayote squash that I found in a magazine when I was waiting at the Chiro office and it was shockingly dessert-y. If interested l, I can send it. I think those are…
  • I can do pelvic floor exercises without pain. What bothers me are lower abdominal exercises. I’m sure I need to do more overall core work, but I don’t like it, so don’t and I think that is contributing to my back issues too. I need to suck it up and do some. Maybe today while the mister is out. I’ll look at those pudendal…
  • Hope he's OK! Tina in CA
  • You need all of that to get a driver's license? That's annoying. Tina in CA
  • Quick Intro-I am 54 and live in southern California. Moved here from the midwest when I was 20. I'm tired of it, but am not in a position to move at the moment. I have no children. I love to travel and that is my financial priority. I read a lot. I exercise most every day which includes weight lifting as well as cardio.…
  • Annie-As Sue said...horses can be calming. They use them for therapy animals for children and adults these days. Sue-Sorry about your tenant issues. That's the "job" I have and have ever had that I hate most...landlord. Rosemarie-I don't envy you shopping for a new car. That is something I hope I never have to do again.…
  • Lanette-Yes, that's me next to the cactus. That day was cold and rainy; one of the 2 we had when traveling. As for the pain, I have not yet had a surgery, fortunately. As for the crowds, I'm a super introvert and am uncomfortable around big crowds. I had to use the "serenity now" mantra to get through the first parts of…
  • Pain-I do not doubt for a second that my pain is NOT all in my head. To be fair, my GP doesn't think it's in my head. She recommended I go to a Gastro, but I am quite sure that my problem is not gastro and I don't want anyone sticking a scope down my throat for nothing. So, I'll dig around a bit, check out Machka's links,…
  • Thank you. I will give it a try. I am always looking for good meat-free recipes to try. Tina in CA
  • Thank you for that! I'll take a look. I also have more pain when I do abdominal exercises - lower ones specifically. I won't stop activity either. I hope you figure out your issue too! Tina in CA
  • I live a good enough distance away from the beach and up on a hill. We will be OK. Wind is what scares me here. Tina in CA
