Day 3: 10 likes and dislikes:

I’m going to try combining challenges this morning and start off by saying the Word of the Day is brought to you by Cyranny, and the 30-Day Writing Challenge is brought to you by Toots! 

So here is my list of likes and dislikes starting with that whimsical gnome in the picture.

  1.  I like gnomes, I have one in my garden, a tiny little thing. I should make it a point to set him somewhere he will be better seen!
  2.  I like coffee, can’t start my day without it…well, I have, but I always prefer to start it that way!
  3.  I like to vape, I know I should quit (we’ve been through this before), but since I can’t smoke, it’s the next best thing.
  4.  I like water, any form, but mainly the ocean. I will take a lake in a pinch, rivers fascinate me, but the sea is where my heart is.
  5.  I like sweets…too much. So since I try to stay keto 80% of the time, I make my own sugar-free sweets or buy them if they’re cheap.
  6.  I like writing, or I wouldn’t be doing this challenge! I make it a point to write every day, somewhere, on something. My blog(s), my journal(s), Medium, on Word, or wherever my heart takes me that day.
  7.  I like being home…too much also. It is a struggle sometimes to make myself get out, I feel I have so much to do here.
  8.  I like going out-I know, what I just said. This time I mean at night, for dinner, or to a movie, or better yet, to a nightclub (something that get’s rarer as we get older.
  9.  I like going to concerts, on cruises, to cultural events like plays or operas. I just haven’t been to any in a while but there’s concerts in my future!!
  10.  I like playing games, in fact, I did a whole story on games of my life on Medium…go check it out here!

Now for the dislikes…do I have to do 10? Oh well, I’ll try:

  1.  I hate mushrooms, ok I dislike their texture. I like the flavor because I have always liked cream of mushroom soup.
  2.  I dislike oatmeal, unless it’s made with steel-cut oats into a baked delicacy like my baked blueberry oatmeal.
  3.  I dislike mean people.
  4.  I dislike rude drivers.
  5.  I dislike liars.
  6.  I dislike thieves, although I have stolen something myself…when I was young. A candy bar, it was just for the thrill, then I felt awful.
  7.  I dislike chaos, I prefer order. I try to keep my life stress free and my house (somewhat) clean and organized.
  8.  I dislike wearing a ton of clothes. That’s one reason I hate winter. I want it to be warm so I can wear as little as I can get away with.
  9.  I dislike smoking now. I hate the smell, the ashes, the expense, and what it does to your body. I hope I never go back to it.
  10.  I dislike being cold, it hurts my bones. I have never liked the cold, God chose to put me in Texas for a reason. 😉

Word of the Day Challenge

Keto, Uncategorized, Writing


Like writing nourishes my soul, my Keto/os supplements nourish my brain and body! Got my auto-ship today and I’m happy to say I’m back in the swing again (or on the wagon with my ketones, more to the point)

Me drinking my Keto Nat in Raspberry Lemonade

Here’s me at 6am, no makeup, bright and bushy-tailed while drinking my favorite flavor-Raspberry Lemonade! I added my electrolytes to the mix so I don’t get cramps and I won’t be hungry until lunch!

These ketones put me into ketosis in 60 minutes, provide me with all-day energy so I can move my body and get it ready for summer. Never mind that I’m 58, I still rock a bikini and I want to look great doing it!

Now I’m ready for coffee, so toodaloo for now.
