So sad to hear of Katherine Johnson’s passing. Her contributions to the U.S. Space program were extraordinary, breaking down barriers for women and people of color in the field of mathematics. We just watched the movie Hidden Figures about a week ago, too. Ms. Johnson lived to be 101 years old. May she Rest in Peace.

Please note, I did not say “diet”, because although weight loss was certainly something I was seeking, I was more concerned with cutting out sugar and improving my overall health. I’llRead more about Best Keto Recipe Blogs[…]
Tomorrow is a big day for my little Luna. She’s getting spayed and microchipped, as required by the animal rescue group that we adopted her from.

It’s that time of year again! Today we bottled up our 2019 batch of Limoncello. This has become an annual tradition for me. It takes 90 days to make, but is well worth the effort.
