My tea party

Tuesday, August 24, 2010



Have you ever thought "wouldn't it be wonderful to invite my Spark friends to an afternoon tea?"

Would you want to meet them? Or would you be afraid to meet them? Is their reaction to you what frightens you?

I used to feel this way before I first joined Sparks. However the friends I have made on Sparks have always accepted me as I am, opened their arms and hearts to making me feel comfortable and allowing me to be me.

So yes, I'd love to sit down and enjoy an afternoon with my Sparks friends. Sit down and enjoy !

    I'd love to come to your tea party! That would be quite an event, all the sparkfriends in one place at the same time. Swapping tips, recipes, information, stories, etc. That would be very exciting.


As for meeting internet friends, I've only met 2. The first one I had only 'known' the woman about a year, we met on a parenting website and realized we only lived a couple of miles apart. So we met at a local park, with our kids, and I felt uncomfortable the whole time and couldn't wait to leave. I don't know what it was but the internet 'relationship' didn't match the real-life one. lol! We just drifted away pretty quickly after that. But last February I met a woman I'd been online friends with since 1997. It was like we'd known each other our whole lives, very comfortable, very enjoyable. I have a feeling a Sparkfriends get-together would go very well though. The people here are just amazing.

Have a great day!!

    I so wish I could have tea with some SparkFriends.

There is a hotel in downtown Pittsburgh that does an English High Tea. I have always wanted to check it out but do not have anyone to ask...

    I love the photos for the tea party.Would really enjoy having a tea party with you. At this point, I am having tea parties with the toddlers I sometimes look after. Just on Friday, I had a tea party with the almost 3 year old, my dog Brewster, and me. The little girl was holding the cup for the dog to have tea. I should have taken a picture. It was so cute. Hope your day was relaxing. We have a restaurant here that does tea parties and lots of times there are little girls all dressed up in their fanciest clothes, gloves, etc. for a party (usually birthday).

    A friend of mine took me to a Victorian Tea Room in Missouri a couple of years ago and it opened me to the world of teas...besides Lipton. We've done the full English High Tea twice and I loved it each time. One time we even dressed up with accessories they had there. I enjoyed myself so much. I thought of that as I read your blog. Yes I would love to come have tea with you. Have a great day! emoticon

don't let the scale define you !

Tuesday, August 10, 2010





It's never been true that the value of a soul, of a human spirit is dependent on a number on a scale. When we start defining ourselves by that which can be measured or weighed, something deep within us rebels. ~ Geneen Roth.

Yesterday I saw a repeat show on Oprah with Geneen Roth. It was a real eye-opener for me. If you get the opportunity to watch this show please do.

    The last picture is my favourite too i have had many times where i have stepped on the scale and cried .

    Cute pics! I agree, the number on the scale is simply that, a number. I never let it get me down when it's not what I want to see. There are so many other things that are indicative of my progress and any one scale reading is just feedback for that particular time. It fluctuates so greatly. It's the overall downward trend over time that means I'm doing something right :-)
