I Don’t Think I’m a Kid Anymore, Toto!

I miss being a kid sometimes. My body just can’t do the things it used to be able to do without a great deal of complaining these days. How annoying! Take, for example, our recent trip to a local ski hill. As far as I can remember I’ve never actually been to this particular ski […]

Try 31 New Recipes – Mom’s Borsch, or is it Borscht?

My husband was sick recently. The poor guy doesn’t get sick often, but when he does it certainly seems to kick his feet out from under him. And he got the head cold at the beginning of the final week of school, when he had a test almost every day. Fun times! Illness always call […]

The Weight of It

Remember how I said that this wasn’t a weight loss blog?  That’s because I created this site to be a home of all things healthy-living; I want to focus on being more active, improving my diet, and enhancing my life overall.  But I can’t ignore that part of healthy-living is maintaining a healthy weight. I’ve […]
