Pinterest Makes Me LOL

When I am down (and that happens quite a bit), I sometimes like to go over and cruise through the giggles at Pinterest. There's always something there to make me smile or seriously laugh out loud. My problems don't disappear but, for five or ten minutes, I can think about something other than my health, loneliness, medical bills, and other bills. In other words, I get a little break from "adulting".

Just in case any of you are feeling less than joyous right now, I thought I'd share the latest giggle-pins.

I love these and when I share them, I tell folks to tag their best friend:

Then there are those days when I just cannot deal with life...

One of my nieces was having this kind of week at work. I'd love to have a job to complain about again.

Doing my IF diet works but it ain't always easy, but I bet I burned some calories laughing at these...

And then, there are all the other giggles that helped me get through a bad half an hour...

Hope you smiled for a few minutes.

The Plant Lady (that's me)

The past few months I've been collecting plants. It's a cheap way to beautify a living space and it's great for my mental health.

Of course, I've been yakking to my friends and family about my growing plant collection, and I've been posting a ton of plant photos and Pins on my social media.

Last night before bed, I was scrolling through Pinterest for plant info and ideas and ran across this:

I went ahead and posted it, but I'm still not sure how I feel about being a plant lady.

Anyway, here's some more plant humor from the wonderful Pinterest community.

And my favorite of all:

I'm getting some of those planters!

Olden and Golden

Realized after doing the Valentine's post that I've been neglecting Lotta Laughs, Sorry and here's something to make it up to loyal visitors:

          And, finally, my favorite one.....

Please, Lord, let this be (a young) me someday


(Belated) Valentine's Day Giggles

Just remember that being alone on Valentine's Day is no different than any other day of your life.

Moi je dis que je suis sur le marché des joueurs autonomes avec compensations :-)

I didn't want to post this on Valentine's Day because it would have seemed petty. The first Instagram post I saw yesterday was by the friend of a relative. Obviously, like me, she is single. Her post was about calling other single women to share their hate or the day. That wasn't the funniest part. It was the hashtags that made me giggle. This was the best: #pinoitforbreakfast.

So, here's some ha-ha's for the single folk who had to survive yesterday.

Free, Valentine's Day Ecard: I am single on Valentine's Day because I have not yet met someone who can handle all of my awesome.

Anti Valentines Day Memes - Single On Valentine's Day Problems - Seventeen

I opened up my dove chocolate on Valentines day, hoping it would comfort my single-ness, and this is what I get.

Remember, singles, Valentine's is just another day and another way for retailers to get your money. For those of you who are coupled up, remember that it's only one day out of the year; be thankful for your mate all 365 days.

Because I'm Now A Keto Babe

I've switched my life over to a low-carb/high-fat eating regimen. It's called the keto (ketogenic) diet. I'm losing weight and feeling better, but it's hard to explain the regimen to people. Humor always helps, so....

Memes That'll Convince You to Give Up Your Diet:

Sugar, processed food, and grains are out!

Carb cycling at its finest. Gym humor:

I only craved certain things & the craving lasted about 12 days. Mostly, I was mourning my Almond Joy coffee creamer.

#ketolife  Have a great day everyone! I'll be spending my morning/afternoon…:

Giving up bread wasn't that hard for me. For people who really, really miss breads, there are low-carb alternatives to loaf bread and mix products like Bisquick.
love it lmao!keto:
I initially did an "egg fast" (all eggs all the time with a little mayo and butter) for four days. Lost so much weight, I decided to go whole keto!

 I used to do this:

Gym humor:

Now, I do this:
Keto Tips: Get In The Habit Of Reading The Ingredients List:

And I get to eat a lot of "Fat Bombs". Cream cheese and chocolate and lemon and .... all kinds of fat bombs

Paleo/Keto Peppermint Patties from ......These make the perfect fat bomb and a great low carb high fat answer to your sweet tooth.A crisp, sweet satisfying recipe that is Worth Every Chew !:  Cream Cheese Clouds aka Frozen Cheesecake Bites 24 clouds 1 net carb per cloud/serving 8 oz cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened 3/4 cup granular Splenda (or sweetener of choice) 1/2 tsp vanilla (I used 1/4 tsp lemon and 1/4 tsp vanilla): Bulletproof Fat Bombs   [1 cup mascarpone cheese or full-fat cream cheese or creamed coconut milk (250 g / 8.8 oz),  ¼ cup butter, grass-fed, or extra virgin coconut oil (56 g / 2 oz),  2 tbsp coconut oil,  2 tbsp raw cocoa powder,  ¼ cup Erythritol or Swerve, powdered,  10-15 drops liquid Stevia extract,  ½ cup strong brewed coffee]: 1 Minute Cheesecake Fat Bomb:

And I quit my Almond Joy sugar-laden coffee creamer for Bullet Proof Coffee:

FD 3 Bullet-Proof-Coffee:

I add whole heavy cream to mine for more flavor and heavier frothing. And I make mine strong so I get a lasting fix.

Death Wish Coffee!!:

By the way, if you are curious at all about the Keto diet, there is a Keto Summit starting on Sept 25 and running thru Oct 5th. Check it out. If you want a quick rundown, check out Pinterest for Keto info.
