Talking About My Mom & The Hairbrush

Many of my best memories and thoughts come to me in the morning. Today my thoughts were of my mother chasing me around the house with a hair brush. The memory made me smile.

When I was little I couldn’t stand having my hair brushed. Continue reading Talking About My Mom & The Hairbrush

My “Obsessions” – Hobbies & Passions Over The Years

People’s hobbies say a lot about them. In this video, I talk about my “obsessions”, hobbies, and passions over the years.

Over the years my interests have been all over the place. I learned everything about dog training in the fourth grade, and even trained cats to run through obstacles in our back yard. Our cat Rini knows sit and shake – if she gets a good enough treat. Continue reading My “Obsessions” – Hobbies & Passions Over The Years

Master Your Fears – JUST JUMP!

Are you staying in your comfort zone or do you push yourself?

Do one thing every day that scares you. After your fears are behind you THAT is when the magic happens.

Get out there – chase your dreams. Continue reading Master Your Fears – JUST JUMP!

I Locked Myself Out of the House

I got worked into a rush and locked my keys inside our house, only minutes after closing the last open windows on the first floor.

Keto Cake for Breakfast

I was raised on cake and ice cream. Our family tradition was gathering for cake and ice cream on on birthdays. Because many family members lived within a reasonable drive from one another there were many gatherings and more cake and ice cream than I can count or remember.

Due to my new restrictive diet, this birthday came and went with without cake. The keto diet doesn’t allow for cheating and almost everything we eat has to be made from scratch. I’ve got more experience with savory foods than sweets and had not found the confidence or time to pick up a new cake recipe yet.

This morning David woke up and decided to bake our first Ketogenic cake. It was delicious!

Happy belated birthday. Continue reading Keto Cake for Breakfast
