Minimalist vegan entertaining?

I already told you -about 90000000 times- what a stellar introvert I am. I love staying at home, don’t mind being alone, and to sum this up I get anxious when I need to entertain people at home. You might be asking yourself: “well then why should I listen to anything you have to say …

No pressure!!!

I’m not a gentle lady. That is actually an understatement. I don’t go to gyms and lift heavy weights because I learned that at the ripe ageof53.5 +after having spent almost 30years in a mostly sedentary job- my back isn’t thankful after a weight session. My exercise routine consists of swimming 43*50 meters in the …

Park farther, get fitter.

My mother is 78, and hates exercising. At least she is consistent- she never liked working out. even as a teen she did everything in her power to avoid it, and sees no need to change her ways now. She is also a smoker, started at 16, and kept going for 62 years. still enjoys …

Things even minimalists need to keep!

When I grew up, there was this saying: “what would you save in a fire? the photo album!”. Needless to say that isn’t the case in 2022, since every photo anyone takes is sitting in the Google cloud somewhere. So- if you have spare hands- (and don’t need to carry all your gold bullions)-take your …

Why I stopped baking vegan cakes.

I need to be clear here- in case you were thinking- “Hear ye! hear ye! the great baker of the decade stopped baking vegan cakes!” that’s hardly the case, although I did try to make it work. But failed. My cakes always looked sad. no other way to describe them. I’m sure there are tons …

Don’t throw those brown paper bags!

So, last week our online supermarket groceries arrived, and I realized I got quite the amount of fruits and veggies. Not that there is such a thing as “too many fruits”, but – my kitchen is small, my fridge isn’t huge, and I have about 4 large bowls that can store all that produce- and …

My tips for stress-less mornings!

Since early retirement, I’ve perfected my morning routine to nearly 100% success. Such a pity I didn’t have those tips when I actually needed them– meaning while I was working+ juggling 3 kids +house maintenance. Sure- I always used the “to-do list” method- which is great, but with all due respect (and I do have …

6 legit ways to read books for free!!!

Already told you I’m an introvert, right? Close to 1278 times. approximately. Ever since I learned to read, my relationship with books was as close – as others would probably feel about a close friend. Of course for me- personally- books are so much better than friends because you don’t have to make the effort …

Kindle PW v. iPad air: which is better??

As it happens, I just had to buy myself a present on Black Friday this year. Why? Well, because once something gets stuck in my head, there’s just no other way to deal with it other than just following that whim. Believe me-tried to avoid, to procrastinate, to be strong, to be brave- nothing works, …

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 …
