Who is happynutritionist on Wizzley?
Wizzley is one of several places where you'll find happynutritionist - if you'd like to know more about her, please take a moment to read this short bio
Greetings! I'm always excited when I can find another place to write and share, it's what I do as a freelance writer.
My username, happynutritionist, comes from my past life...no, not the reincarnation kind of "past life", but before I decided that writing was my passion.
I am a retired herbalist and Certified Nutritionist. There was a time when I met with clients and taught classes on Nutrition and Herbal Medicine.
Various life events brought about changes, and I no longer meet with clients, but happynutritionist is my name throughout the web and has been for many years...so I continue to use it everywhere, including here on Wizzley.
This is the profile picture I am using right now
It was taken at the Botanical Gardens near us a bit over a year ago. Currently I am using this picture wherever I write.
Your's Truly! Yes, that's me.
My food and drink pages on Wizzley
As a "retired" Nutritionist, I like writing about food...here are a few of my food pages
This is still my favorite Nutrition Book
It is a thick book full of wonderful information that was part of my studies in conventional and alternative approaches to Nutrition

I do a LOT of Writing and a Little Selling
When I'm not cleaning, cooking, or out and about, I'm WRITING!
I try to keep up with my blogs and website. I used to have a few more blogs, but decided it would be best to narrow my focus to the ones listed above. I have too many interests, I think, and am always trying to figure out where best to focus my time.
I also enjoy vintage paper items, and other collectibles, and sell things on and off throughout the year on eBay. If I have anything listed at present, you will find it below.
Sometimes I sell things on eBay
My user id on eBay is claudias_corner_auctions - if I have anything listed, a few of the items may show here
Other Places Where You'll Find Me On the Web
I maintain a website, a few blogs, and write on another revenue sharing site.
This is my first website, and is going to be going through some major changes during the remainder of 2014 into 2015
Happy Nutritionist's Nuggets
A companion blog to the website that I have maintained for about 8 years.
Weeds and Seed Swap
This started as a place to exchange plants and seeds, and that's still possible, but it has become more focused on gardening and herbs.
Working Grandmothers, a Place to Rest
This is another blog that has a variety of things for woman who work from home or in the workplace to enjoy or learn from.
Aspen the Yorkie
A blog and pet care site, dedicated to our sweet Yorkshire Terrier who blessed our lives for 14+ years, from March of 1999 when I was with her at her birth through August 2014 when I was with her when she passed over "the Rainbow Bridge". The site continues in her honor.
My Yorkshire Terrier, Aspen, was a great inspiration
We miss her very much
This is Aspen, my Yorkie. I have started a Yorkie picture page on Wizzley.
Aspen was part of our life from the Spring of 1999 to the summer of 2013. She is still a great part of my memories, my husband and I adored her.
I watched her mother give birth which was actually the first time I'd seen puppies delivered. There are newborn puppy pictures at the link above.
One day we know we'll open our hearts to another dog that needs a loving home, and when that day comes, you'll be among the first to know.
Plush and Stuffed Toy Yorkies
These are so cute, and remind me of Aspen
10 More Facts about Me
I don't like talking about myself
Yes, it's true, doing a whole page about myself using the words "I, me, my" over and over is uncomfortable to me...I suppose there is some deep psychological reason for that...I'd like to think it's just because I've been taught to be more concerned with others than myself, and that using the word "I" over and over is a little egotistical, but this is about me, so I'm stepping out of my comfort zone.
Here's a list of a few more facts:
- I have been married since April 7, 1979 to my dear husband, Paul
- Our first child was a son, Mark, born in July of 1981 - he's a wonderful single guy, very artistic, working in the graphics arts field.
- Our second child was a daughter, Heather, born in January of 1984 - she is happily married
- My sense of humor tends to be a little sarcastic...which can be funny sometimes, and not so funny other times.
- We live in rural Northern NJ in a small lakefront log cabin.
- I am a Christian through and through thanks to what Jesus did in my place on the Cross.
- I enjoy doing in-depth Bible Studies.
- I used to be a book worm, now I'm an audio-book and eBook worm, thanks to my Kindle. I always have 2-3 books in progress.
- I grew up in central Jersey, and went to a private school until we moved the August before I started High School...private to public school and being homesick all at once was not a fun time at first, but I adjusted.
- I went to college, got an Associate Degree, and then continued at a University until I met my husband and married, never got my Bachelors Degree. I worked as a Legal Secretary while going to college and for a year after we married.
I Would be Lost Without my Kindle Fire - it goes everywhere with me
I use it satisfy my passion for reading, to watch movies, as a tablet, with apps that I like, the possibilities are endless!
My Autoharp looks like this one
But it's an old one, manufactured in the 1970's and not used much by the original owner
From Violin to Autoharp
A nice transition
I took violin lessons while in High School, but there wasn't much use for it in our school at the time, so I lost interest even though I loved the instrument. I kept my violin until about 9-10 years ago. It was then that I heard my first Autoharp, and fell in love. I sold my violin on eBay, and used the money to purchase an Autoharp with 15 chords, then resold it for more than I paid, and purchased another with 21 chords like the one to the right.
Here are my Autoharp pages on Wizzley
How I Met my Husband
I was invited to a church get together of college and career aged friends by a friend who had just returned from college, and that is where I met my husband. At the time, he had been in New Jersey for a year, moved here from Colorado by his job. Can you imagine leaving Colorado for NJ? And even more amazing, we're still here.
We found out when we met that we worked a block apart from one another, and to make a long story short, began dating, and were married 7 months after we met. We celebrated 37 years of marriage last April, 2016.
Pikes Peak - hubby has climbed it at least a couple times
It was not far from one of his childhood homes in Colorado Springs
That isn't all there is to know about me...
...but for now, it's what I can think of
I'm sure I'll be back to share more things as they come to mind.
I guess this page - My Spiritual Journey Through Works of Art - is another very important part of me that shares a lot of personal information as well. Feel free to visit if you have a moment.
Thanks for visiting today, I sure do appreciate it.
