Does changing your mind=failure??

So, I’ve had this “math fantasy” for a long time. There you go- Just when you thought you’ve heard every strange fantasy, comes a strange new one and opens your perspective. The thing is, when I were in high school, I liked the cleanliness of math equations. the fact that there was a clear cut […]

Apple-sauce instead of what??

Apples are a favorite of mine. I absolutely think fruit are nature’s fancy cakes, and I am risking being labeled as a douch/purist/hippie/all 3 together-and I don’t give a f%^&. Because- I am a true skeptic, and almost everything in life-in my opinion , is to be seriously doubted and double, if not triple-checked before […]

Why I keep asking myself “why?”

When I was “somewhat of a boss” at work. I attended a management course at the university. They taught us all kinds of methods to engage workers in the work they are meant to do. The work they get paid to do. I know I sound old , but all the while I thought “why […]

The day we had a power cut.

So a few weeks ago, all of a sudden, in the middle of the day, a super hot and humid day might I add, everything stopped. No lights, AC, computers, and the internet -shut down. Apparently, there was a fire close by, which caused our life to rewind to the ’50s in a split second. […]

I discovered I am a double-standard hypocrite.

A few years ago, I went to Barcelona with my long (long) time friend. I love her, she’s funny, intelligent and I like listening to her insights. So, we were waiting to board, and she was looking around (you see, one of the reasons I like her is that she enjoys the horrid game of […]

The best birthday present ever!

So, last week I celebrated 52 , and I got the perfect gift from my kids. I am not just saying this because they are my kids. Or because the eldest is a devoted subscriber and frequently comments on my content.(in private messages though. I guess its uncool to publicly comment on your mother’s blog).  […]

Post workout Ice cream?? totally!

(Not a dietitian, not a health instructor, retired lawyer+health enthusiast here, I do my research before anything I do, because I have a lot of free time , and in my opinion this is the best way to use it). Want to pack 40 grams of protein in one yummy meal? Have a sweet tooth […]

Wood pallets 4 ways: a true frugal wonder!

I love these wood pallets. The reason is, that  I get to feel like a stellar environmentalist, reusing thrown out supposed to be trash, and creating (in my humble -oh I do care so much about my opinion, in fact, I care only about my opinion-mind). Plus- where I live -these are thrown out by […]
