Enjoying cross country trip!

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Hi all! Things have been so busy for me these past few months I've not been able to stay connected w/my Spark Peeps :-(

Have no fear, I'm doing good but have been involved in purchasing a farm property in West Virginia. Hammered things out and ultimately drove from California to West Virginia with my parents to finish all the paperwork!!!

Now currently visiting with my baby sister in Virginia.

Hope all are doing great!

    Yep, the family is moving to WEST Virginia :-)

During Civil War the state of West Virginia succeeded from the southern state of Virigina, due in part to fewer slave owning sympathies west of the Allegheny Mtns AND the north's desire to keep railroad & armory at Harper's Ferry WV in Union hands. Sooooooo, West Virginia is considered a Northern -not southern state officially; but as we all know it has many ties to Virginia and southern culture. (FYI: Most of WV lies above 37 degrees latitude; or north of Gilroy & Madera CA. )

strange garden tomatoes & broke my toe!

Saturday, September 10, 2011

Hi all,

Thought I should report that while working on my "todo" list around the house (washing windows on outside of the sun-room) earlier this week, I slipped in the suds off of my step ladder and broke my toe, Ouch! So won't be out walking much for next 3-4 weeks. Otherwise its been a pretty good week.

BTW My tomatoes are doing good, but have been gathering some fairly strange ones. I actually took photo of one of my goofy tomato to share with you guys:


Is anyone else having strange fruit in the garden this summer???

    OUCH! indeed! Sorry you bunged yourself up -- hope it heals faster than predicted.

I have no strange tomatoes to report because I never got any on my plants. Not even a blossom! STRANGE summer!

  I haven't been on in a few days but wanted to know, how's your toe? Anything with toes hurt! Hope you can continue your walks soon. I did one hour today, my son did 10 mile yesterday! Love the tomato! emoticon

    Ouch ouch ouch! (the toe)

Tee hee hee (the funny tomato!)

Over in my neck of the woods, it's been too cool, and we have too much shade in the yard; hence, no tomatoes!

    Yeah but even weird looking veggies are great as long as they are homegrown...!!

Sorry about your toe!

Hope it is feeling better soon!

500 Points! :-)

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

At log in today my wheel spin got me 3 points, not great but better than those 1 point spins. Then I started Sparking. I like to do the Trivia and actually answered all three questions correctly, WooHoo! Then I started to Huddle w/my teams, and catch up w/what's been going on; adding a comment here and there, THEN got the notice that I had Sparked enough to get an additional wheel spin. WHAT??? Yeah, another spin and I got 500 spark points!!!! Can you believe it????

So now will spend the rest of the day on and off giving my peeps Spark Goodies!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I now just hope I eventually get my big ol' bootie out of my computer chair and get out to the vegie garden, take my walk, clean the house....

Oh Sparkies give me strength and encouragement to not succumb to the Spark goodie distribution addiction (and excuse not to exercise....)

  Way to go! 500 pts, that makes your day. I hope you did something else good for yourself and went out in the garden and soaked up the good sunshine and a little exercise to boot. If not, remember, tomorrow is another day. emoticon

‎"Life is not the way it's supposed to be...

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

A friend of mine shared the following quote w/me:

‎"Life is not the way it's supposed to be.. It's the way it is.
The way we cope with it, is what makes the difference."

And I totally agree with it, but too often forget. (Especially, when I coping badly of course...).

Hope everyone has a great week.

    "It is what it is"..........absolutely.
I don't find some days as easy to deal with as others. But we must play the hand we are given and we will be rewarded accordingly. emoticon

I chuckled a bit when I received this little ditty from Cathy Thorne & thought I'd share it here (since I have her permission to):
