Making veggie soup? double it!

Everybody knows the best trick for getting something done, is, well, to simply get it done. Works 99.9% of the time. The thing is- many times getting off the couch -and starting to cook from scratch-is a 99.9% no-go. I mean- that’s how I felt before -now I’m retired+an introvert+I love eating + planning my …

“What a genius!” (really??)

As it happens- across the street from my house, there is a kindergarten. Before you go all “awww-they are soooo sweeeeet, those little innocent faces !” , well, not exactly. I mean- they are 5-6 YO -not the actually innocent 0-3, and some of them can start the revolution today, so to speak. The thing …

How much did it cost to change my “honest opinion”?

You remember I am a class A introvert and a known unashamed nerd. Now you remember. Anyway- I love autumn and winter, can’t deal with harsh sun and heat- which is a shame since I live in a very hot place, suffice to say we have 8-9 months of summer a year- and I do …

So as it happens, my Vitamix is showing some signs of weariness .I’ve had it for ten years now, working full power every day, it can still make a smoothie but finds the nut butters etc a bit more challenging, so I decided it’s OK to get a new one. I feel like an apology …

When life gives you a lemon-use it!

Some things are just perfect- Yes, I mean it. I know some of the times I may come across as a cynic, and yet. I believe everybody- even the cynics- know deep down in their hearts that perfection is out there, wandering about, waiting to be recognized, acknowledged, and welcomed. Perfection may not be unanimous …

My favourite Whatsapp button.

First, I want to thank the Whatsapp inventors , because for me, as a class A introvert, the fact that I don’t actually have to speak with people- is such a treat. I do 90% of my (almost non-existent ) daily communications -through Whatsapp- and prefer short , distant texts to “warm and heartfelt “phone …
