Good Day to All,
     I can't believe it's been over a year since I wrote anything and, again, I've missed, missed all of you, and I apologize for neglecting this wonderful Care2 site.  This was my first place for meeting people online.  I have been at  Facebook, and this weekend I left it. I don't know if I'll return, and I didn't leave for just one particular reason. I feel there are so many factors that has caused FB to evolve, partially,  into a negative entity, especially when it comes to politics.  I'm tired of the sniping and the hate speak, so I'm giving it a very long rest, and I may not even return.  I've many other better things to do in my life. you know, I spent too much time there, it is an addiction like none other. I've grown away from it and that is just fine with me.
     Two months ago I was diagnosed with type ll diabetes and high cholesterol, so now I am in the process of reversing all that; I am losing weight and have returned to a plant-based eating regimen and feel really good. I've a way to go for my goal weight and I believe it will be reached before or right around the end of the year. Also, I walk every day which is a great thing for anyone to do whether your on a mission to lose weight or not!

I hope you all are doing really well and good things are happening for you.

I love my minimalist, simple, peaceful, life of contentment, and love collecting vegan recipes.

Thank you all, so much, for being so kind, generous and patient with me.
You are, indeed, deeply appreciated.


Peace,  Carol
