2 Year SparkaVersary

Saturday, July 17, 2010

July 15 was my 2 year SparkaVersary. I joined the site but didn't do much with it for a couple days. Now I'm totally addicted!

I will write more later when I come back from a road trip with my sister and niece.

Another awesome day!

Friday, July 16, 2010

I met another Spark Friend today and it was so nice! I met ERIECANALGAL today at her yard sale. Spark people are always so friendly and nice, we all share the same addiction. I bought her set of books she wrote called Erie Canal Cousins, Three Weeks in Utica and Albany Home coming. They are VERY interesting books! I highly recommend them. They are for pre-teens and early teens.

Then I went to lunch with my mother and sister and then off shopping (browsing actually) for a couple hours. A very nice day. Then out for dinner to Applebees with my family and yes, I was careful what I ate.

Saturday I'm going to Syracuse to browse and walk the mall and meet another long time friend.

I'm on the second floor of the motel so anytime I need Ice for my water, Up and down stairs and there is no elevator.

I'm also watching the Yankees game live on New York TV, life is good!

    Sweet! I can almost see you kickin' back and relaxing there. And you met ERIECANALGAL! I've read her blogs and notes here but haven't spoken with her yet.

Road trip time

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Thursday I'll be on the road headed to Central NY. I was born and raised there and m parents still live there. I get back to visit them once a year. The motel has WiFi so I'll still be in touch. It will take me about 6 hours to get there.
I've made a salad for my lunch along with lots of fruit.

I'll get to see a couple of Yankee games on the YES network, just wish I had time to drive to the Bronx but no this trip.

    Our big surprise about the Bronx was when a friend took us to lunch on City Island! What a neat little place!

Sad day in NY

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Another sad day for Yankee fans. George Steinbrenner passed away making the second great member of the Yankee family this week to die. Sort of glad I'll be in NY when the team starts playing at Yankee Stadium on Friday.

Had another good workout in the gym tonight with the treadmill and the weight machines.

Getting ready for my annual trip back home to Central NY. I will drive home on Thursday and come back on Tuesday.

    George was a great man who mellowed as he aged. He will be missed. Have a good trip and enjoy your time in NY. Great that you are getting your workouts in. Good luck!

    Boy - you sure got that right....my Mom didn't particularly care for the Boss but that didn't stop her from her deep love for the Yanks....I'd bust her chops from time to time as he was born in the same month and shared the same astrological sign (Cancer)......boy, the dirty looks and shaken fingers I'd get.....and do I ever miss that.....


And there will never be another voice like Bob Sheppard, that's for sure.....

    Sorry to hear about the Yankees. I'm not big on baseball, but any death of a great athlete is sad. I hope you have a safe trip and a good time in New York. Keep up the good work in the gym! You can do it!

A busy day

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

This morning I got my 25 Spark points for the every 30 days on the site, great, thank you. I joined Spark People on July 15 (or 16) 2008 so this week will make my 2nd Sparkiversary so why doesn't my 30 days line up with my join date?

I had to call the jeep dealer to get my car a/c checked, it smelled like dead fish when I turn the a/c on. I was able to get it in at 1 PM, no problem, that will fit in.

I loaded up the car with my 72 oz jug of water, coffee, The Spark book to read, the newspaper and get on the road. On a normal non-tourist day it's a 30-35 minute drive to town but now that it's summer and tourist season, add 15-20 minutes on to that drive because of the bumper to bumper traffic. So I stop at the town hall and renewed DH's Harley registration and the Suburban registration and get on my way.
Had to drop off the Harley registration at the Dealership for the annual inspection. Well the Harley shop is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, I did not know that. Well ok, on to next stop. I had 2 hours until I take the car in so I stopped at a couple shops. Found the aluminum pans I've been looking for at the dollar store. I cook meals for 2 and freeze 1 serving and these will go from freezer to oven easily,

Ok so on to the Jeep dealer. I turn on the a/c and it smells like dead fish or as my grandson put it, cow poop, and when I turn it up to high the fan sounds like it's going to blow through hood. 45 minutes later the guy comes out and says I'm done. They had to clean it up, apparently a "critter" decided to make my a/c fan it's home and when I turned on the a/c I made mush out of the critter and it was thumping around the fan. It smells better now.

After that I had to stop at the grocery store which took me over an hour since I was comparing prices, reading lables.
Then on to the post office to mail a package to Australia for my wonderful Spark friend and another package to another Sparkfriend in teh US.

I had a yummy salmon filet for dinner. Now I'm tired so it's off to bed.

    Did you make mush out of a skunk? Honestly though I would have felt bad for the critter.

    What a day! OMG, that critter got a rude awakening! Eeewwwwww!

I didn't even know we got 25 points for every 30 days on here!
