I recently had a reunion with my best girlfriends from high school We are all turning 60 this year. What a blast that we had. Our husbands all got along and weren't bored with our conversations because we were current. We didn't hash out too much of the old days, just a little. One of my friends was going back to a really stressful job. It was then that I realized that having completed a 35 year career in my own special interest, I can now enjoy each day doing whatever I want. I write, workout, and scheme new ideas for the future. Liberta. In Italian it means liberty. The freedom to do whatever I want. This is a milestone for me. The realization that I don't have to be showing up at a meeting, or teaching an aerobics class. Liberta. The epitome of my life. At last! Here are two
photos of my recent reunion. Yes, I made the sparkly glasses, and yes, that is our husbands. Whee! Liberta!

Wallowing In The Weather

I only came indoors for breakfast. There is nothing like this time of year in the Colorado Rockies!

The today show is doing a segment on people who have overdone it with plastic surgery and Botox to their lips. There is a plastic surgeon confirming the fact that your lips lose their fullness as you age. Thank God! Where did my lips go, anyway?

Here's to growing old naturally and taking the best care of our one and only body. Who knows, maybe eating lots of fresh, raw foods and vegetables will keep a gleam in my eyes and and a healthy glow to my skin. That's all that I ask! I don't want lips like the women on this show! Happy Monday, I'm back out to the garden. Ciao.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter and spring kickoff! I just had a wonderful workout outside. One of the things about living in a colder climate is that springtime is a huge deal. Exercising outside is a real thrill.

If you are mindful of world affairs, I hope that you will take a minute to research the origin of your Easter chocolate. The chocolate trade is one of those industries that still uses child slaves in their farming practices.

Please refer to for a list of organic, slave free chocolatiers. Thank you for being mindful of child slavery and for shopping American!
