Happy New Year.... and Many More!

Is this the year of the important high school reunion? Or is your son or daughter getting married? Is your cholesterol a little too high? Are you tired during the day? Sometimes it only takes a little motivation to get started. Having two grandkids to bend down and pick up is what first got me started doing some strength training. Then three years ago when my son told me he was getting married I knew I was on the right track.

Needing Decorating Ideas?

The  new kitten decided to lend a paw  with tree decorating. If you are needing a little inspiration check out the many Christmas books found at your library. (no kittens were harmed in making this blog)

Slow Cooking for the Fast Moving

     The month of December can be a time of "hustle and bustle"... so what better time to use your slow cooker. It's nice to have a hot meal ready and waiting for you and the family after a day at work, school, or shopping.  Whether you check out the book or download it...
