"We do not quit playing because we grow old, we grow old because we quit playing." Oliver Wendell



Good morning Sparkers. I love this quote, it also goes along with "you are only as old as you feel" So let's all aim at being young !

have a great day ! Weigh-in last night was a 1.5 lb loss emoticon emoticon

    You're so right! When we're kids our moms say, "Go here." or "Go there.", and we do as we're told. How simple. But now we have to be accountable to OURSELVES if no one else!

Thanks for the reminder. You have a wonderful Sunday too!!

"Life should be measured by how many moments take your breath away, instead of how many breaths you take."



Today is a day of relaxing, work was very busy and stressful, but I stayed the course and had a good healthy week. I did not turn to food for my stress. I had prepared my meals in advance so was never a problem with grab and eat anything, which happens when I'm busy.



Relax and enjoy today Sparkers !

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."Walt Emerson

this is taken a few minutes from home.



this was taken from my yard.



I'm tired of looking out my window and seeing the snow.

I'm hoping to get to the office today if my husband can get his truck dug out. They did come in and plow our lane but there's too much ice in front of his truck making the shovelling hard.

I'm feeling much better today. Wishing everyone a happy Sparky Day !

White, literally sparkling clean. You have a breathtaking beautiful view from your home. Awesome! Thank you for sharing, Karen emoticon
