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 …

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, …

While your’e waiting….

So I was standing in my kitchen waiting for the water to heat ( winter time- instead of forcing myself to swallow cold water , I pour 2 cups of hot water into my water bottle and add a cup of cold water-in case I need to drink right then and there- and a slice …

Spring cleaning my body? yep.

before I start-3 important disclaimers: #1.It is NOT spring yet.

Pre-workout snacks debate-seriously??

So, recently, since enhancing my workout routine, I changed my eating habits.

It’s time for some gardening alchemy I think. I am not about to bother you with the hype talk about: “the important lessons we need to learn concerning the horrendous way we’ve been treating our planet before the c. virus, and how we all need to change our ways when this is all over”.  I …

Getting through quarantine.

#1:getting creative in the kitchen.

Those calories don’t count (or do they??)

If there is justice in this world, then some calories really shouldn’t count. If they have to count, well then they should be on a big, huge, discount. I am talking about  food preparation -tasting calories: If you are frugal, (I hope you are, this is definitely the place for you if you are, or …

How I failed my 2020 resolutions on 1/1/20.

I have this tendency to criticize. I guess it is no wonder I worked in the justice department for more than 28 years. Or maybe it goes the other way- maybe I was a happy free spirited holly go-lightly before I started working as a lawyer, and the job- and the horrible things I witnessed …
