It’s a bean soup kind of day

Dateline: Spokane, WA.  It's cold and overcast today--in other words, we have perfect for weather making--and eating--bean soup.  I have a batch simmering on the stove as I write this, and the beauty of it is, everything in that brew is a power food.  Yeehaw, Zero...

The Saga Continues….

But first my Weight Watchers report.  After two weeks of travel, I am amazed and happy to say that I LOST 2.2 pounds!  Yeehaw!  The truth is, I was getting a little careless, but now I'm fully re-committed for sure.  Ready to conquer new ground.  🙂 Gettysburg was...

Elvis and the Bunny Slippers

I needed some cheering up.  That's my excuse for buying 1) an Elvis Presley piggy bank, complete with golden sunglasses and 2) a pair of bunny slippers.  🙂  (I did need new slippers.)  I laugh every time I look at the bank, let alone drop change through the slot, and...
