Hello - I turned 62 in January 2015 and I have been married to my husband (Poppy) for over 46 years. We have 4 children, 6 grandchildren and 1 silly little dog named Bingo, and a cat named MilkyWay. Also lots of squirrels, foxes, birds...but all those are in the far! I enjoy the sound of rain on a tin roof, I love thunderstorms and take pictures of lightning. I love walking in the falling snow with hubby. I need to watch my weight which I plan to do by Walking and watching what I eat. With your help I will continue to accomplish this. I love the Lord and love to share his love and grace with others.

Member Since: 4/28/2008

My Goals:
To loss weight and stay on a good healthy exercise program with the Spark Family in mind.

My Program:
I plan to write in a journal what I eat and keep track of a walking program. I love to walk. I used to when I was younger and by doing so I could eat anything. I plan to keep learning as much as possible from Spark family members and how they reach their goals as well.

Personal Information:
I am from the East Tennessee area in the Smoky Mountains (Dolly's Country). I am a retired Editor/Publisher. We also owned a commercial printing company but have recently turned it over to our son. I also have taught many photography classes. My husband and I were missionaries in Kenya, East Africa once and lived on a Coffee Plantation. We have 4 children, one which we adopted when she was 14 from Romania. She is now 39. We have 6 grandchildren: grandson (Jaden) who is 13 years old, grandson (Matthew) 7 years old. Three little gr'girls, 6 year old Emma, 4 year old Lexi Annabell, 4 year old Mili, and a new grandson, 2 month old Tommy. Our children range in age 45, 41, 40, & 39. We have 1 dog. A 4 year old Rat Terrier named Bingo. And a female cat named MilkyWay.

Other Information:
I love to cook, cross-stitch, write short (true stories) of my youth, do crafts and be creative. I love old classical movies, vintage and antique stuff, Old magazines. My favorite movies are, "It's a Wonderful Life", "You Can't Take it With You", "Late For Dinner", & most recently "Miss Potter" and "The Notebook". I love Rain on the roof, a walk in the falling snow at midnight with hubby, dance by the light of the moon and dance under the stars beneath African skies.

    Just stopping in to say Hi! I don't remember when I posted last so it's been a very long time. I decided I needed to start posting at least 2 or more friends a day or people would think I just didn't care and that's not true. Somehow, I've accrued a lot of friends on here and I haven't kept up but I'm going to start with you and try to be better. Hope you are having a fantastic Wednesday! Hugs, Melody
