Who or What is She?

  • She calls herself Lauren but is also known as Mom, Gramma, Lar, and, once upon a time, Peach.
    An ex-suburbanite who moved to the wilds of the Sonoran Desert and decided to raise fiber animals, fowl creatures, 3 halflings, and one pint-sized farmer without a clue as to how. Join Lauren as she learns how to file alpaca teeth, shear a horny goat, raise 3 teenagers and 1 grandchild while cooking dinner and doing the laundry with her other six arms.

Ouch, I'm firmly biting my tongue here.

Sadly enough, we have not had a keg since my 40th when you were with us Lauren. It will be 2 years in August that the little tap runneth dry. Oh don't worry, the fridge holds bottles and cans of beer just fine though!

I find it is increasingly difficult to get those stubborn pounds to budge as I get older. But two pounds in two weeks isn't bad at all! To lose a pound of fat, you need to burn 3500 calories, or 500 per day to lose one pound a week. That's a lot of calories. Assuming you're not nursing, it pretty much means cutting 300 calories a day from your diet and exercising briskly for 30 minutes. At least it does for me. So don't feel too bad. If your foot is better, go take a walk. Moderation in all things.

I am so glad that one of my former students has grown up and has a worthwhile endeavor that provides my friend and her family with liquid gold. ;-))
