Sugar free ME

THERE SEEMS TO BE ADDED SUGAR ON EVERY INGREDIENT LABEL I READ! So learning a bit more about this thing called ‘sugar’ has prompted me to say goodbye to it. Since the first of the year I have avoided it. Most processed foods have also left the building. Oh my, I am not deprived. Try melting coconut oil and adding cocoa powder, a bit of honey and vanilla. After refrigerating you have delicious sugar free candy. Recipes on the Internet for my new type of eating are endless. I am also saying goodbye to a pound a week. Time will tell how my body will react. I am hoping the body aches in muscles and joints diminish. Time will tell.

‘Every day you make progress. Every step maybe fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the JOY and glory of the climb.’ Sir Winston Churchill


The Aim of Education …..

Is the knowledge NOT of facts but of values.’
By Dean William Ralph Inge


I am a Midwestern gal, born and raised in Minnesota territory. We are pretty much ”nice’ folks. We take pride in our manners, opening doors for others, letting people in line before us, etc. We are respectful, not too huggy feely, but we LOVE family fiercely, and we take VALUES very seriously. Maybe that’s why the quote above is so meaningful to me. Thought I would share it with anyone visiting.

A Journey each day….


Through origami…through creativity….through imagination ….through dreaming. I am 69 and still dreaming. Never never never too old. The mind is a bliss filled playground.

‘Be quick, but don’t be in a hurry


…..Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.
The purpose of discipline isn’t to punish, but to correct.
Do not mistake activity for achievement.
If I am through learning, I am through.
Make each day your Masterpiece.’
From the Pyramid of Success by Coach
John Wooden

“Whatever you are…be a good one.”
