    That's awesome. Isn't it wonderful how what we give returns to us? Not that that's what we're looking for. I just think that we reap what we sow.

Thanks to all who visited my page!

Monday, December 08, 2014

My motivator of the week award is much appreciated as are all the encouraging words left on my Spark page. Especially since I am really struggling with my food tracking and weight these days. It was a real lift to my spirits and helps me know I can do this and stay on track, even though we are approaching the dreaded food filled holidays! Thanks again! and may you all reach your goals!

    I love the "dreaded food holidays" I love the people around me visiting and I love to cook and bake, we taste it and share the rest , we are not getting too many calories that way.

Visit to Ireland

Thursday, September 26, 2013


I was fortunate to be invited by my daughter and her family to visit Ireland recently. The Atlantic Ocean meets the lush green farm lands, while the sheep graze, all in view of the ocean. At times, the mountains meet the ocean, as is seen in the picture on my Spark page of the Cliffs of Moher. We visited several castles and St. Patricks Cathedral in Dublin as well. Ireland is a beautiful country!

    Love your pictures. I went to Ireland back in 1998 with my Sister-in-law. We stayed in a hotel in Dublin and took day trips all over the place. That is a beautiful area and I would love to go back.

We toured a castle and had lunch there, that was fun. Also visited the Waterford plant, what a treat that was.

Glad you had a good time.

Thanks for sharing!

I don't believe it is possible to visit Ireland and not be moved by the people and everything you see.

Slim Sparking time for me...

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Since May began I have been away from home more than I have been at home. Unfortunately, I have not had much time to spend on my fitness routine by visiting my local fitness center. However, I have tried to improvise with other exercises where ever I am at the moment. Additionally, I have not always had the internet, so my Sparking has also suffered. I hope to be back on track at home after the second week in July. No more traveling for me after that for a couple of months. I must say, my traveling included some really fun times with family, my son and his family at the beach, a week with them in Virginia. Then, I have been with my daughter and new grand baby several times too! All this made for some really good times, even if I couldn't Spark. And, in the end, I have not gained any weight. However, I still have 10 pounds I would like to drop! emoticon Good luck with your Sparking too!

    That you are maintaining while away is wonderful! I was away for only a week and managed to go up a few lbs. It was easy to knock back off, but still! So glad you are enjoying your time, able to travel, and spend time with your wonderful family. How blessed your summer has been so far. You show the fortitude and determination to jump back into it when you are home, and I'll be happy to root you to success! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Enjoy your summer and your children and grandchildren!! That is what is important! I also haven't had a lot of Spark time but it's because we are at our cabin now and we've had so much cleaning to do. I'm about ready for a rest and to do something fun!!!!

Have a wonderful rest of your week! Congrats on not gaining any weight!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon Thank you for the blog. It is so important that we thank our veterans for all they do and sacrifice for us and our country. To stop and give thanks and remember those who has given all is a small thing to do considering all they have done. We lose young service men and women daily don't let their lives be forgotten. emoticon emoticon
