After 60 Life
I Think My Guardian Angel Drinks: Irreverent Advice on Living Well After 60…. Because Wine is Always Age-Appropriate - Vikki Jensen Claflin

I Think My Guardian Angel Drinks by Vikki Jensen Claflin is a humorous take on senior life and living.  The tips may come in handy, if not they'll at least make you laugh.  The quick stories are entertaining and fun.  You're not even close to 60?  It'll still give you a laugh and a peek into what awaits you down the road of life.  I enjoyed reading I Think My Guardian Angel Drinks.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.


I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Oral Rehydration Solutions are Essential During Winters

With winter just around the corner, Americans everywhere are beginning to dust off skis, snowboards, skates and hockey sticks in preparation for a busy sports season. Winter is a time for many spectacular outdoor adventures, though people often forget the importance of remaining hydrated.



It is a common misconception that the human body only becomes dehydrated during hot, humid months.Since the body is not overheating and any sweat quickly evaporates into the cold air, many believe that the body is not losing fluids and is not at risk for dehydration. In reality, dehydration is as much a potential risk in winter as it is in summer.


During periods of cold weather, the body’s thirst response slows dramatically—by as much as 40%—and this can occur even when the body is already dehydrated. The reason for this slowdown is blood vessels which constrict in the cold and reduce or eliminate blood from reaching the body’s extremities—lower body, hands and more. Due to this constriction, the body conserves heat and draws blood only to the body’s core regions. Essentially, the body is tricked into operating as if it is completely hydrated—without feeling thirsty, we do not drink more fluids and our bodies do not conserve water.


The risk of dehydration remains in cold weather, even if our bodies are not telling us we need to worry about it. Whether hitting the slopes, running outdoors or snowshoeing through a forest, it is essential to remain hydrated at all times and rehydration drinks are the perfect solution for many. They are convenient to carry anywhere, simple to use and packed with vital electrolytes to guarantee rapid and complete rehydration. In fact, a 2003 clinical study showed no difference in efficacy between oral rehydration solutions (ORS) like DripDrop and expensive and invasive IVs.


DripDrop was developed to help keep bodies hydrated and healthy in even the most challenging circumstances. Smarter hydration begins with DripDrop—safe enough to be used every day and strong enough to help fight chronic health conditions.


About DripDrop:


DripDrop was invented to save lives and is proven to combat the effects of dehydration on overall health, mood and performance.

More Festive Tasks
Selected Poems - Langston Hughes
Reasons Mommy Drinks - Lyranda Martin-Evans,Fiona Stevenson

Square 9 - Winter Solstice

Book: Selected Poems of Langston Hughes

Task: I read Reasons Mommy Drinks in one night earlier this month.

Bonus Task: 3 things I like about my grandmothers


Since my grandmothers have left this world, this is more of a memory of each of them.


1. Nana Trunzo

    Technically, my great-grandmother who came over from Italy when she was a baby with her family. She ensured that the Italian traditions our family celebrated stayed true to the Old World. She remained loyal to her friends, regularly meeting up with them for gab sessions over strong coffee and cookies.


2. Nana Rotolo

    Daughter of Nana Trunzo and my paternal grandmother. She had the most chic style in fashion. She could throw a party - kids' birthday, cocktail, family reunions - with effortless style. She also had brains and could knock out crossword and logic puzzle books with ease. I got her reading gene and she took me to the public library every two weeks.


3. Grandma Cowles

    My maternal grandmother. She handled being a military wife while raising four kids (my mom is the youngest). She was left a widow early and remarried to keep her family intact while working full time in the 60s and 70s. She was widowed again before my mom graduated high school, but no matter what life threw out at her, she handled it with aplomb and a plan of action. She moved in with us while my mom went through a painful divorce from my birth father and stayed until my mom was emotionally, mentally, and financially stable to live on her own with two teenagers.


Square 13 Christmas

Task: Pictures of stockings (my son's, my daughter's, my dog's) and our Christmas tree sans gifts because I don't trust my kids not to get into them before the big morning.


Bonus Task: Family Christmas traditions


With my Italian family, we had the Feast of the 7 Fishes for supper, followed by board games and cards until it was time to bundle everyone into the cars for a trip to church and Midnight Mass, complete with candlelight. Then we went to our respective homes to sleep and enjoy our Christmas mornings, followed by getting together for Christmas Day dinner, more unwrapping of gifts, more board games and cards. No TV was allowed to be on except for the Yule log - Nanas' orders. Music was allowed, but on low volume so that conversation could flow.


When my parents divorced, my Irish mother got rid of the never-ending seafood buffet and instituted a new tradition on Christmas Eve - the open house party. Friends and family would come to our house after getting off work for the holiday and we would eat appetizers and holiday drinks and watch It's A Wonderful Life. Once it was close to the time to go to Midnight Mass (thankfully at a different church), the house guests were welcomed to come with us or went home. The next day would be all about just the three of us (mom, me, and my younger sister).


With my own kids, we just eat antipasta and cookies, watch movies, and get into new pajamas.

Review: Reasons Mommy Drinks by Lyranda Martin-Evans and Fiona Stevenson
Reasons Mommy Drinks - Lyranda Martin-Evans,Fiona Stevenson

A quick, funny read; this book is a collection of blog posts from the Reasons Mommy Drinks blog. Accompanying each post is a drink recipe (both alcoholic and non). The posts start with baby showers and end when the child(ren) are 18 months old. Although I only laughed out loud once or twice, many of the posts did put a smile on my face. The posts are about a paragraph long, so it can be read in one sitting.


However, it is written with the intended audience of very white, very upper class women in Canada and the UK. At times the authors come across as very shallow and miss their party girl lifestyle. There were certain posts that just made me roll my eyes. The drink recipes are not overly complicated (no more than 5-6 ingredients for each drink) but more than a few call for champagne (one recipe recommends eating Beluga caviar with the drink).


Since I was sick and needed something to read that wasn't taxing on my brain, this book worked to entertain. Bonus I can use it for an upcoming square on the 16 tasks challenge.
