Ashland, Day Three

Another great night of sleep, and a lovely breakfast at the Inn. Today we had orange-banana smoothies, followed by a melon cup with dried cranberries and sunflower seeds.

Ashland, Day Two

We began with another lovely breakfast here at the Inn. Today it was a berry smoothies, followed by grilled pineapple with a vanilla creme, baked french toast with cranberry-orange sauce and pork sausage. Yum.

The End of an Era!

Today, at a crucial moment, the end of an era arrived. My food processor, a sturdy though not-much-used workhorse died. I was pulsing flour and butter together for a few seconds at a time, barely starting the task to make dough. It just went ‘click’ and then¬† . . . nothing. Needless to say, I […]

It was exactly 4 weeks on 2/17, so it seems like its time for an update on the BLO and my health in general. Since getting the go ahead on 2/13 to start exercising, I’ve done a Yoga or Pilate’s workout everyday. So I’m pretty much constantly sore from using muscles that haven’t done much […]

My cat, Morpheus, used to love to sleep on top of the cushions of our couch. Very cuddly. but he was so heavy, he’d start to sink . . . until he was nearly gone! PhotoHunt
