Let’s Talk About Fitbit Again

Well, I have decided to write about the Fitbit again.  Why?  The Fitbit may be a little more complex and mysterious than the instructions tell us all. When I bought my Fitbit, it already had a little battery charge. After my Grandson plugged it into the electric socket to get more charge, it charged in what seemed like seconds.   I thought that was pretty cool at the time because most batteried things take a while to charge. My Fitbit takes my pulse, counts my steps, keeps the time, lets me see text messages scroll across quickly and tells me how far I have walked.  All of that is just great...

Prayer, Purpose, Faith and the Widow

For as far back as I can remember God has made His presence known to me.  As a very small child, I remember talking to Him and feeling the warmth of His touch. My true heartfelt belief is that we are all born into this world remembering God because we have just come from His loving arms uninhibited, innocence, and still feel His lingering, loving, and protective care which stays with us.  Small children are not worried about what others think which enables them to speak openly about God. I had the absolute privilege and God-given gift to get to teach a Sunday School class for two and...

Fitbit and Me, DIY Widow’s Blog

While out shopping with my Daughter-in-law and Grandson a few days ago, a conversation came up about getting fit.  Having always been a person who likes to workout, I have gotten lax on doing just that. Since I have started sharing blogs and chapters of the book I am writing on this website, my exercise routine has suffered some, make that close to “nil”.  I seem to get lost in writing and learning about how this website works then realize I have been sitting in front of the computer for hours.  Seems the only things getting exercise are my fingers. Anyway, the discussion got...

Medicare Paperwork, DIY Widow

My  Doctor’s office called then told me they needed me to make an appointment to fill out some paperwork for Medicare. Since it had been over a year since having been to the Doctor, I decided to “kill two birds with one stone”, (which is only a saying, I do not kill birds) and made the appointment. After arriving at the Doctors office and after waiting a short time in the waiting room, my name was called to go back to a private room.  On the way, the young lady who was escorting me stopped at the “Lying Weight” scale to get my weight.  I told her, “I...

Clothes, Oreos, Candy Lipsticks

Frank and I solved our fan problem with our “Beater Fan,” or at least for a while.   Now we began to settle into a daily routine. On the weekdays we got up before dawn because Frank needed to be at Fort Devens early in the morning for his classes.  Since we did not have a car, and it was a three-mile walk to the base for him, he started early on his walk to the base. After Frank left for school, I had things to do which kept me busy and fueled my unique inventiveness.  I loved figuring out a better way of doing things while making do with what we had. Next story makes me smile...
