Hi..now on to # 2..drink 8 cups of water daily..I have for 21 straight days :) I like water and drink plain water as well as several cups of coffee in addition to the 8 cups of water. I drink 2 cups each morning when I take vitamins, another couple cups after exercises and exercise bike, try to drink before meals but usually have water with each meal, too. And instead of pop I'll buy a water if I'm out some place. I've been putting some citrus in my water..I freeze slices of lemons. limes and oranges on a cookie sheet, them put in freezer bags. Then just add a slice or two..instant flavor and ice at the same time...well water has been an easy goal :)
Today we went to pick up my glasses, I really like them :) hubby says they make me look younger..almost asked him if that means I looked old before? haha. I'll maybe get some pics and add to my page later. I went on quite a shopping spree..needed a new microwave, luckily they were on sale at Walmart for $49!! Got a new cd player and a food processor for $25. Also got a bunch of greeting cards from the dollar store to send out, one to new grandparents, Thanksgiving and Halloween cards for all the kids and grandkids, also Oct is a busy birthday month..Hubby, granddaughter and sister....
Also got some groceries and had supper at KFC..mostly had lettuce salad and 2 pieces of chicken without the skin and coffee.
I started on another project..I've made so many new friends that I'm sending an apple goodie to each one..hope I get done by end of September..then I can start over for October :)
I like to focus on work during September..October's focus will be Thanks and Laughs :)
Keep on sparkin' and have a great week :)

My first goal for September was to blog daily..well this is my 20th straight blog and they get rather habit forming :) Sometimes I find my self thinking during the day about what I might blog about, and wishing I could be as creative and witty as some of the bloggers. I also enjoy seeing if anyone read or commented on the last days blog..lets me know I'm not out here alone!
I really enjoy reading others blogs and getting to know people, find out about their struggles and successes.
I feel I've been successful on most of my goals and blogging has been a fun and easy one.
I'm already planning for October's goals..:)
Today is another drizzly day :( I did mostly house work . Yesterday I forgot to include the best part of my day..bubble bath and homemade pedicure. also an up date on my hair dye, turned okay, I guess, just not what I was going for :(
Hope everyone is having a great week..keep on sparkin"

Hi the weather may finally be turning around here..the long range forecast shows no rain for the next 14 days!!!!woohoo
I quadded the 3 home herds and it was cold and windy.I had on my winter parka but came back to the yard for gloves, let me check the calendar..yup, still summer for a few days!!
2 days ago we had a hard frost that killed my flowers and any above ground garden stuff left, which wasn't much. So today I spent some time cleaning up flowers and plants and putting garden equipment away, draining hoses, etc. I still have potatoes, carrots, turnips and parsnips in the garden but they'll all be fine for awhile. My 2 five gallon pails of green tomatoes are taking their time ripening so I'm still waiting to make a batch or 2 of salsa. I already made 2 big batches of tomato sauce, then whirled it in the blender and froze it..I added some zucchini this year (don't tell hubby he thinks he'll only eat zucchini in chocolate cake haha) I also added some grated zucchini in the big batch of meatballs and hamburger patties, it made them very moist! and lower cal and more veggies :)
The frost was so hard we had ice on my "cowboy" hot tub (which is just a cattle water trough that I do my hot tubbing in) ahhh the life of a redneck :) I still have to drain it and put it away for the winter.
We get TCM station on our satellite dish and today I watched a classic movie I loved as a kid...Wait until Dark starring Audrey Hepburn..it was just as good now as 40 years ago. I even phoned my sister in Regina to tell her it was on if she wanted to watch it..ah memories :)
Hubby got moved home from the neighbors cutting hay and is back on our green feed, he's caught up to what fields the neighbor has combined so will have to do the rest later. We went over and moved the truck home tonight after supper.
Well it felt like I didn't do much today but I guess I did..we had herb and garlic rubbed crock pot chicken, boiled sweet potatoes ( I like to microwave them but the microwave quit ) peas and carrots and I had with that a spinach salad with tomatoes and cucumbers..I had a little treat of 1/2 cup mint chocolate chip ice cream for dessert. Hubby has the wood stove going in the family room and we're both on our own lap top computers..how romantic :)
I should go track my supper food and see what else is new on the world wide web.
Have a great week every one and keep on sparkin' :)

Just did some house work, moved hubby around in the hay fields, did some laundry, watched some movies and generally had a take it easy day :) I even drank a few cups of tea...so I don't have too much to blog about!
Hope everyone is having a Sparkling weekend

I finished the sign I was painting and delivered it to town (for the new cafe) Rode along with hubby to check the community pasture cows. After, he was able to get back cutting hay and i took the time to finally dye my hair with all the different colored dyes. It turned out okay but not exactly as I wanted, might put some hi-light streaks in later :). My new glasses will be in on Monday so we'll go to the city after we round up and move one herd of community pasture cows.
I was happy with my weigh in..down one pound..better than up :) I was thinking of the differences since starting Spark..like pants not so tight, muffin top not so big, some chins gone, less boobage..:)Also I'm eating better, tracking my calories, more fruits and veggies etc
It's all good:) Have a great weekend (The Riders won :) )
