Family gatherings V. diet!?!

Ok, so since you already know I tell you quite a lot of unflattering stuff about myself (though admittedly not everything- no need for you to feel superior), the following incident didn’t make me proud but did teach me an important lesson- so here it is: A few years ago, my sister got divorced (amicably– …

Walk the talk.

So, a few months ago my partner retired (early) and joined my blissful early retirement. Blissful until he joined. I mean. I’ve heard of couples enjoying every minute of their mutual retirement, I’ve read their stories (albeit not many of them, sorry- all that perfect sticky theme gets on my nerves). “we travel all the …

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 …

Does volunteering make you a better person?

Research conducted among people about to retire/dreaming of retirement found that when asked “what are you going to do in retirement?” 100 out of 100 people answered, “obviously travel and volunteer!”. ***I have no idea if such a research was ever conducted. but I’m pretty sure these would be the results. Why? well- because people …

“I wanna hold your hand”.(Lennon, Mccartney).

I already told you I live across the street from a kindergarten. There are pros and cons to this fact- as with everything else in life. The cons are obvious- morning rush hour in this narrow street is quite challenging, to say the least, resulting in people honking and sharing thoughts out loud. Also- some …

No one owes me anything!

I am a very judgmental person. Not only towards myself- which would have made it difficult for me yet quite a relief for others- I criticize everyone and everything. Most often- I would lay my harsh judgment on someone or other- only to realize moments later, that I am guilty of the same behavior. So …

“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 …

My sudden FITBIT popularity. (???)

I already told you I own a Fitbit Inspire 2 watch, and I use it to track my workouts and get much needed moral support and slacking tracking. Here is link to my previous post: Fitbit Inspire2 : was it worth buying? I also told you a long time ago that I am a class A …

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 …

When you look too closely.

“Take a good look!” “Inspect things closely!” You hear these often, don’t you? Well, I’m here to say that after almost 53 years on this planet, many times it’s best not to look too closely. “Why is that?” you might ask. “Who cares?” you might think. It is my belief that you should care- and …
