Catching up

Things have been absolutely CRAZY around here the past couple of months. Hannah just moved to Israel a couple of days ago, after living here for the past 6 months. She took up a lot of my time and energy- if she wanted to talk, I wanted to spend that time with her while I […]

Oh Dear.  Playing catch up again

The very first blog I ever wrote on the D’Adamo website was in 2004 right after the funeral for my Honorable Husband’s father.   Now, 14 years later, we have been going through the final illness and funeral for HH’s mother. His father had been in robust health, developed pancreatic cancer, and passed away in less […]

Dodging hurricanes and swimming laps

My sister has retired in Virginia.  I hadn’t seen her in almost 2 years, and that’s way too long!  My Honorable Husband has two close friends who have also retired on the East Coast – one in Virginia and one in North Carolina.  So we planned a 2-week vacation and bought airline tickets last spring.

Happy New Year!

Rosh Hashona is usually a time for families to get together. But my oldest, recently married daughter was going away upstate for the holiday, where the sleep away camp she used to attend is hosting a free event for families and alumni of the camp. I’ve never attended because I don’t think they can safely […]

Avocado, Chocolate, and Apples

Saturday is the big day.  I go in for a follow up cholesterol test.  I’ll admit that I nervous.  I’ve worked hard, cut back on fats and sugars, exercised more, increased my fluid intake, and deprived myself of some favorite foods.  If my LDL is back in normal range, it will all be more than […]

Skinny fat and plant sterols

A few weeks ago a friend posted a link to an article about skinny fat.  I read it, and it started me on a quest to understand belly fat.  I was thrown into an unfamiliar world where there is a difference between hard fat and soft fat.  Where belly fat can start to function as […]

Catching Up

I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in a while, but my life’s been busy. My daughter got married at the end of June, and I’d mentally planned on a bunch of blogs related to it. Jewish weddings spread out the festivities for the weeks before and after the wedding itself. The Shabbos before, the bride and […]
