In Spain, it is common to pour chocolate milk or cafe au lait on cereal for breakfast
For people that are lactose intolerant, chocolate aids in helping milk digest easier
Chocolate was used as medicine during the 18th century. It was believed that chocolate could cure a stomach ache

Good Morning All!!!

Been raining here, very damp and kind of cold. The birds are feeding like crazy. I think we have more cold weather coming.

I am so glad Joyce that you are back. We have missed you. Even though it was just a couple of days. I missed you and the smilers.

Nerd, Cool that you saved the kitty and kittens. I noticed a lot of us are into nature. That is awesome...

I hope you all have a good day. I woke up with a headache that wont go away. I am going to try some simple remedies.

Hang in there everybody...

Spring is around the corner as they say.

Hugs, Karen...

Gettingby, NOW I know why I see drawers or bags full of orange/fruits bags in peoples houses. Never understood that. Great use of the fat too!

Jamie I hope you are feeling better, you are enough, just the way you are, unique and loving.

Birds, I use to sit with my father on the front porch and what the birds and squirrels for hours.. talk a little.
lots of trees on his property. These are the few good memories.

Now I am ambivalent about watching birds, still I put the feeds out and the suet cages. When I feel good watching it is relaxing and cathartic.

Getting warmer here,

Wish all Peace and strength

HI Trina, Jamie and Joyce...

Thanks for the "smilers". I thought that the German Shepherd was three. Oh well...

Very icy here today. Much colder and windy. Don't even want to go out.

I hope you all have a good day.

Warmer but raining today. Then, it's going to get really cold again. At least I can have the window open a bit again today and bring in some fresh air!

I'm in a funk. Can't take out the old furniture because there's too much snow still on the streets, which means I can't do any of the other stuff I want to do...blah.

Still trying to do 1 'regular' thing and 1 'improvement' thing each day. The decluttering is progressing, slowly, but surely.

Still battling sinus/cough thing...I think it's from the forced hot air heat rather than germs.

Hope everyone has a peaceful day.

We got the rain yesterday. Cold and icy here today. Good thing hubby has "ice creepers". He is able to walk out there.

I have a sinus/cough thing too. Getting tired of it.

Hope you feel better Pitmom.

Sun is trying to come out this morning. I hope that it succeeds.

Birds are feeding. Love to watch.

It is still cold here and will be for a few more days. I mean in the teens. It will be cold all winter.

I hope you all have a great Saturday.

Joyce, thanks again for the smilers.

Take care all...

Arg. Was sorta' over the crud for a week, then had a relapse. Coughing and exhausted. Or am I low energy due to depression overwhelming me? This southerner (south Fla born & raised) doesn't like cold weather when it means I have to close the curtains to keep warm. And y'all didn't even miss me! And I guess no-one else in my life has missed me either. Can only fight off the "pity-party" for so long before I fold. about to go drive around -- the sun is shining and my car is warm, so maybe that will help.

Hi Lynnwood,

My hubby got a relapse of the flu or cold whatever it was. He has acute bronchitis right now. But got some medications and he is starting to feel better. He over did it snow blowing this week. Knocked him right down in bed again.

You would hate it up here. It was -25 last week. Brutally cold. Then when it did warm up some to the 20's, it was real damp so it seemed colder than it was.

Kick the "pity-party" to the curb. It doesn't help any. Chin up Lynnwood. I know you can do it. I think we are all a bit depressed this winter. Nobody posts. Days are short. Though it is sunny right now. It is very cold.

I hope you feel better sweetie... Have a nice drive...

Hugs, Karen...

Nerd, I take Pristiq. I really like it. I took Effexor for years before I started the pristiq. I hope that it works for you and that the transition is easy. Good luck with the wean...

Have a good day all.

Hugs, Karen...

Good day-kids!

Went on a date yesterday--went to a late lunch and then to see the movie, The Post. Excellent work--very intriguing and from a woman's perspective, which complicates the material considerably.

BF went to funeral today--I was going to go but felt flu-ey. So, I stayed in and stayed warm. My big news is that I am going to make a bolognese tomorrow in the Instant Pot, while we watch football. For those who say, 'What is this Instant Pot of which you speak?" Oh, my, goodness. It is a marvel. Pressure cooker, slow cooker, and rice/yogurt/bean/roaster in one. https://instantpot.com/

Work is as usual. Sending out apps for online teaching at International Universities. Really pipe-dreaming (STILL) about moving, becoming an ex-pat. Emailing with a woman in Taiwan about her experience teaching, chronic conditions, and living abroad. Who doesn't fantasize about starting over?

Be well, all friends. Peaceful thoughts.

OMG If only we COULD start over. Go back to before chronic illness. Wouldn't that be awesome???

Sorry to hear your BF had to go to a funeral. And sorry you feel fluish. I been going back and forth with that. I got a flu shot but still now and again I get a day that I don't feel very good and feel flu-ey... Like a mild form of it or something. I been in so much with the cold and damp weather. Not getting a lot of fresh air.

I look forward to seeing that movie, The Post... I love Meryl Streep. I think that is spelled right and I think that is who is in it, right?

I hope that you feel better Myself. Have a good time watching football!

Hugs, Karen...

You probably already know about the “Press Your Luck” sneaky wins...but you MAY not know that Michael Larson also tried to win $30,000 from a local radio station.

He withdrew from the bank his remaining Press Your Luck winnings in $1 bills to try matching the serial number with an on the air random reading. He did not have the winning number, so he re-deposited half of the money, but left about $50,000 in his house.

This amount was stolen in a burglary while Larson was away. To this day, the case remains unsolved.

Hello all.

Starting another round of P.T. tomorrow. So tired of living like a T-Rex!

Grandson and I took the old dry sink apart and then he took it outside to the curb for me! I picked up the new desk on sale (check out Big Lots ad...should be the first picture in office furniture) grayish 'stained wood' look with metal X legs and 2 drawers! It's perfect! I've been trying to figure out how to sort mail between what comes for me and my daughter, and the drawers are the answer! They are large enough for magazines and large envelopes! Just inside the door, the placement is great! Now, I just need a waste basket for the junk mail! The 2 new lidded litter boxes fit nicely underneath and there is room for 2 jugs of litter too! On top, I've placed an antique mirror that is pretty heavy and unlikely to be knocked over by the cats. In front of that is a vase I had in the closet and an earthenware lidded jar that Lisa bought me months ago! It's a nice little vignette!

The birds have finally found where I hung the suet cake! I had to pick up a fresh birdseed bell as they had devoured the last one after the snowstorm. Will hang it out tomorrow.

Our temps have nose dived again...brrrrrrrr! Much of the last snow has melted, thank goodness. We're expecting 'nuisance' snow on Tuesday.

Signs of Spring are popping up in the stores at least! I saw seeds and seed starting kits in Walmart today! Can't wait!

Hi guys!!!

Quiet Sunday today. I made fried chicken for supper. I rarely make it as it is so messy, but it turned out good.

Didn't get out much today, it was cold.

Hubby brought home from town two suet cages and two cakes of suet. He put them out late so they will find them in the morning. They have been eating seed like crazy. Makes me think some yucky weather on the way. We have had a lot of ground feeders too. Black Eyed Juncos. They are cute little fat birds. I love them.

I hope you all had a good Sunday. I hope you all have a nice day tomorrow.

Pitmom, way to go with getting things done. I procrastinate way too much lately. I think it is because of the cold. I don't want to go outside.

Have a good one...

Hugs, Karen...

Hi everyone!

Talk about going back!
I would like to go back to age 25, best few years of my life however. I would like to have the wisdom I have now!

I made a big pot of red sauce seared some pork ends and threw them in. Wow comfort food!

Gave my mother in law 1/2 lb of pasta
She ate all of it in one meal.

She is not doing well, John has to go over in to get her in and out of bed..

Thinking of those weaning off meds, be patient and loving to yourselves

Peace and strength

More than 3000 years ago children played with circular hoops made with grape vines. This toy was swung around the waist.
Years later this toy was made by company called Wham-O and the Hula-Hoop was invented in 1958

The hula hoop was then invented the year I was born... Interesting...

These bloopers and groaners show that things can be taken in more than one way. I think that they are so cute!!!!

Trina, I am sorry your mil isn't doing good. I hope she feels better soon.

I hope you all have a good day today. Still cold here but suppose to warm up around Thursday. I am looking forward to that.

Take care all!

Hugs, Karen...

Started with p.t. today. He thinks I will have good results. We talked about how things have changed and new procedures that may be tried. I am hopeful.

This never ending runny nose is driving me nuts! Buy stock in tissue companies! lol

Loving the results of putting in a little effort every day to improve my home. My 'one chore, one improvement' method seems to be working well.

Hope everyone has a peaceful day.

Ugh. Living in Atlanta, GA where we've now had several days below freezing, but the building is not insulated, means blinds must be closed to keep heat inside. This south Fla born & raised girl is no good without the sun. Seriously, not good for my attitude, my disposition, my mental health, no good at all! I really don't mind the cold itself (spent a winter outside of DC, spent a winter in Omaha, NE), but I can't be without the sun!!!

Tomorrow will have to swallow the heating bill and open the blinds.

We are in the middle of a cold snap (for here). However, our heating system is gone haywire--has been spewing out heat non-stop for several days now. We are currently near 80 degrees, with the heat off and windows open. **ack**
