    Questions for the Friday Five

    The Friday Five was a big deal back in the blogging days. There was a blog that posted 5 questions, and people would answer those questions on their own personal blog. I always enjoyed doing it, so here we go. You can answer in the comments if you like, because honestly, theres like 3 of you and no one I know blogs any more. 🙁 And yes, I know it is only Wednesday. I figured I would post a bit early in hopes someone would actually see it. haha. What is your favorite color combination? What is one food that you love fresh, but hate when it is canned? Where…

  • Hey. Hi. Hello.

    Hi. :D

    To the three of you that may actually read this.. Hi. My usual boring drivel will show up here. Anything food or health related, I have set to go right to the pages listed up there on the menu. From the Kitchen is foodstuffs, Better Every Day is my ongoing health crap. I plan to get real over there. It won’t be pretty. I don’t expect anyone to really involve themselves in that. Picturebook is where I dump my pics of the cats/dog/family/etc. Around town will be about Oakland.. things going on, places or events we have been to/attended etc. Friday Five was a fun thing to do back in…

    Baby steps

    I have noticed two things in the last month. I can run my fingers through my long hair and not come away with a handful of it. And my fingernails! For the first time in well.. forever? They are the longest they have ever been. They are not bending, peeling or cracking. *knocks on wood* I will take any and all small victories at this point! 🙂 On the downside? This may be TMI.. so you have been warned. I did not have my monthly for a good while. But now that my numbers are moving towards where they should be… it is back. And this month? With a vengeance.…

    A Herstory

    A little background for those that do not know me… I have always been overweight. I was skinny once, when I was about 15, for like 20 minutes. It was great. Knowing what I know now, OH how I wish I could go back. However, I cannot. For years I complained to doctors about how tired I was. I complained about my painful, heavy, unpredictable periods. I complained about my brittle nails, my overly dry skin, how my hair would come out in clumps… I complained about the weight gain, and how no amount of healthy eating or exercise ever brought on any weight loss. I complained of severe, chronic…

    Recipe Gone Wrong

    My mom is going to kill me for posting this. Haha. She was going to make a Pineapple Upside Down cake for dessert one evening. She got out everything she needed and made the batter. She then realized she did not have the pineapples, so she went looking for a can. We did not have any! So, she opened a can of mixed fruit, drained it, and used that instead. When she went to take it out of the pan, it was this hot mess. It definitely is not pretty, but I will tell you what.. This did not last until morning! It was absolutely DELICIOUS. We just left the…

    The day it all changed.

    August 11, 2021. August 11 was my original due date for my kidlet. I had to have them forcefully evicted a week beyond that day… but I digress. August 11, 2021, I was watching an episode of America’s Got Talent. That is one of those shows that I will watch when there is nothing else on. I will forever be grateful for watching on that day. That was the day that Nightbirde auditioned. I would assume you know who that is, lest ye have been under a rock for the last year! I, like millions of others, were completely captivated by her. First, her voice, and her song, reduced me…

  • Hey. Hi. Hello.

    Making progress!

    Well, hello there. I spent some time tonight trying to get this place cleaned up. It is coming along!! I paid for the pro template. I am glad that I did. However, for one of the things that I am wanting to do, I now see that I will have to most likely pay for another premium service. Argh. I just cannot find a way to do one of the things that I REALLY want to do!! The template folks have some help forums, so I am about to head on over to ask some questions. There may be another way for me to do what I want, that I…

  • Hey. Hi. Hello.

    Hey Y’all!

    Bear with me as I try to figure this out. It has been a hundred years. I was tired of not being able to edit elements of the site the way that I really wanted, so I bought a Pro theme and now I have full access, and just enough knowledge to REALLY screw things up. I hope that I can really make this space what I need it to be.
