Happy Fall! We finally had a killing frost last night, so I have no excuses to not clean up my garden.

Doris, the sassy cat, loves boxes. She was being a rascal this morning, so I set the box on the counter and she jumped right in. She is in her happy place!

How about prudence?

When thinking about the name of my blog and what I wanted the name to convey, I became very interested in the the words prudent and prudence. Yes, there can be negative connotations around these words, so I looked in my dictionary, again.

I really like what Merriam Webster has to say: the habit of acting with deliberation and discretion, wisdom applied to practice. Love it! Also, careful management, economy.

That is exactly what I want in my life. This blog will be my testimony of moving in that direction.

Thank you very much!

I have been steadily gaining weight, especially this summer. I am experiencing hormone swings and am sure some the gain is due to peri-menopause.

In searching for solutions, I came across ‘goop’, http://goop.com, Gweneth Paltrow’s blog/store. I was intrigued by her supplements. The packets have been put together by Dr. Sara Gottfried. I decided to try it. I paid $90.00 for a 30 day pack. Seems like a lot of money, but I am very frustrated.

I started the packet today. 

I did not weigh myself, because my scale needs a new battery, which I don’t have. Ugh. I will judge my experience instead by measurements and by how my clothes fit. 

I will keep you updated.

Hello October! I can’t believe you have arrived.

Here is Gary, the mighty mouse hunter, resting. He caught and ate a mouse sometime during the night. How do I know this? Well, Gary vomited mouse parts on the rug this morning. Gross!
