Filling the Days

So far, my days have been filled. There’s the occasional foray to grocery shop, which leaves me anxious, exhausted and SO happy to be home. There’s the cleaning ritual… cleaning any groceries I bought, cleaning the steering wheel, car doors, door handles, etc. plus I try to do something...

Fresh Air and Sheets

Recently, my husband was kind enough to install a clothesline for me. We just moved our house to Paso Robles, the land of (seemingly) eternal sunshine, and I wanted to try saving money by drying clothes and sheets in the sun. What a great decision that was! Maybe it...

Migraine Headaches

Migraine headaches plague more people than one might imagine… certainly more than I imagined before I got into this field. Some of my clients have found that a regular massage (every two weeks or every month) helps to stave off most of their migraines. I have other clients who...
