A day for poetry.

Saturday, May 04, 2013

I feel like composing a poem today, so let's see how this works out.

I started Sparks a year ago, not so very long.
Compared to other weight loss plans, this one is very strong.
The food and exercise trackers help to lead the way.
To better health and energy, to help me through my day.
I could not make it by myself, Spark friends are sure the key.
To make my life much better, a slimmer, trimmer me.

    Enjoyed reading your poem! Do you write poetry often? (I know you are busy with grandkids - but wondered if it was a hobby of yours).

Black cat

Thursday, April 18, 2013

This morning I was walking my grandson to the bus stop with the baby in the stroller. I had a black cat cross my path. Instead of falling for the usual superstition, I thanked God for the green grass, slight breeze, sun shine, tulips and daffodils in bloom and all that is good.

    Once I had one cross the road in front of my car. Then a few miles up another one did. It made me feel creepy. On the other hand I used to have a cute black and white one.

    I HAVE a black cat so obviously am not superstitious!

It sounds like it was a perfect morning in your corner of the universe -- raining and storms in Arkansas today, with tornado watches most of the day.

Enjoy your day!!

We did it!

Monday, April 08, 2013

I am so surprised, I took my 7 week old GS, Davis, to Zumba. I wasn't sure if he would sleep through the 40 minute class, and he didn't. He woke up half way through and just watched me. He got a little cranky and I picked him up and he danced with me. After one and one half songs, he let me put him back in his carseat. He was watching every move I made. I thought I might have to give up my Monday and Wednesday classes, but I don't because, we did it!

For all of you Leos out there.

Saturday, April 06, 2013

Today I was reading my horoscope in the newspaper and it was very uplifting, so I thought I would share it with you.

LEO
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Luckily, change doesn't happen instantly. If it did, existence would be chaotic and meaningless. The change you're making is a slow process, and it is going well. You'll see in a few weeks.

Very appropriate!
