I am a 3rd generation performing marionette artist. I am learning to live life to it's fullest, no matter what comes my way. My childhood sweetheart & I are still loving each other & the world, since High school! I am Blessed!!!!! I have found Walking our beautiful doggie; & hiking in nature is SO fun! I crave it! Also; ZUMBA; Sheppard Pilates DVD; Swimming;& , Flash Mob..... what a blast! My body now REQUIRES movement! I am a better performer because of Spark People! I thank God, the Angels, AND Spark People, daily for my amazing life! My new quote: "BE THE HEALTH YOU WANT WITH WHAT YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH, & I WILL, TOO!"

My life is taking a new lovely turn! Chris of Spark People suggests we volunteer! I am doing that, it is SO special & rewarding, I am performing my marionettes for a local nature center! I love it, so inspiring for me & the amazing audiences! A perfect place for me to grow & focus on goals. They happen about 1 time a month @ my favorite hiking spot using my marionettes to teach about nature! It IS magical! I am so Blessed & grateful for these experiences. I am enjoying watching my life unfold in this new way!

My 'regular' job is helping my DH with his lovely small business. I am learning SO many new things & thrive because of it! I love him so much!

    Thanks for your nice comment on my blog today.... And for sharing some pretty interesting information. I like the sounds of tangerine sprinkles on the lightly cooked broccoli and I am wondering is that a spice or give me a clue?
    ( I am all the way vegetarian now and after all the studies I've heard and read on meat and even chicken and fish I am thoroughly grossed out and done with the stuff!).... how about you?..... anyway I am glad we are on the same page!.....( oh yeah you are drinking green tea right now and I am drinking green drink loaded with fruits and vegetables)...... emoticon
