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, …

The sourdough starter monster.

Yes. I am well aware that “carbs are the enemy!” and all that. (Not my enemies- I learned to pick my battles- I have 3 kids, and if there’s one thing you learn in life with children- at all ages – is to preserve your energy for the right war. And don’t you worry- it …

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 …

There’s always an alternative way to go.

Look at this picture of the cow and her calf ( I mean- I don’t know for sure that it’s hers, maybe she’s a calf snatcher, but they seemed comfortable together and wow so cute -I just had to stop my run and take a picture for all of you. I knew it would be …

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 …

“Why not go to paris to buy a Chanel bag”?

So this morning I saw a WhatsApp message my friend sent me last night(I change to flight mode” at 18:00. no desire for any kind of interaction after 18:00. told you I go to sleep early- around 20:00. She wrote:” want to go to paris with me in november so I can buy the Chanel …

How a phone call taught me a lesson.

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 …

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 …

Autumn. cinnamon.

It is supposedly autumn here. It’s just so hot it’s quite idiotic to be celebrating autumn. Because autumn-for me- is a celebration. I can’t stand the heat, the blinding sun, the fatigue and weariness that go hand in hand (in my case?) with this heat. Sure- the abundance of fruit and quick hot shower water …
