  • Hallelujah it’s Saturday!!

    9/12/2020 4:52:17 PM, by SUSMANNIE

    I’ve fallen into a routine since Covid has arrived. Since I work online pushing files around for a science journal publisher, my work is entirely from home until years end, at least. I now shop for groceries online through ShopRite, and pick them up curbside Friday after work. Saturday is my husband... Read more

    Our old house is now looking really empty and as we loaded the van, it became more and difficult to find things to fill the spaces... three helpers to load this morning, two cam along to help unload. Today was an even hotter day, but as there were fewer heavy things taken, it was an easier day... Read more

    Day 17 IF: Was off track for a few days re: the type of foods I was eating. And that sent weight in the wrong direction. Basically, I need to keep carbs down. I have managed to maintain the fasting. At least 18 hrs...typically much longer. And usually 2 meals a day. Tried 1 and have fasted 24... Read more

    Short blog - I need to be over to my friend's house at 7 - a lot of the house still to be packed. I will take my own food that can either be eaten cold or just warmed in the microwave so I don't make dirty dishes. It's supposed to be a little bit warmer today - back up into the low-mid 70s i...

    9/11/2020 4:01:06 PM, by POLSKARENIA

    Today was a hot one. Our friend Mick and his daughter’s BF came over to us at 8am to load up the van. We piled lots in, realising that we’re nearly there, the house here is looking somewhat empty. Hopefully, another two loads will have everything finished on Sunday. So, by 10:30 we were on our ...

    One more day of work - hopefully not late again. I did manage to log off at my normal time yesterday and get up to the store. They didn't have any of the Eight O'Clock whole bean coffee, I had to settle for pre-ground. Good thing I checked the downstairs freezer - my son was out of veggies - he's re... Read more
