Days #347~353: Oscar events & traveling notes! Photos from phone!

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

I'm working VERY hard to get the 8 hours I need every night. It seems to be the only way I can do all the fun activities I want to do! Looks like I'll be going home on Monday March 4.

Today is hiking Hollywood hills & Shopping in Beverly Hills, dinner with N & A, CPK= salad & chicken is in my future! Tomorrow I get to drive south a bit & visit with my sweetest of all Great Niece, Hayley, she just turned 2 years! I am her official FAIRY GOD MOTHER! Thursday I'll visit my "middle" parents. & take them to lunch for their B'Days. I haven't seen them for quite awhile.

The Oscar events were wonderful! We met many lovely people & I felt GREAT being trimmer & healthier! I did eat a sweet treat, there, but not too much! Watching the directors & nominees talk about their movies, was REALLY fun! We had tickets for 3 different 'workshops', Foreign Films~Animation~Make Up & Hair Styling. We were 3rd row from front! WOW! I am SO blessed! A fabulous reception afterwards. Displays of the make up film that were nominated. A life sized Hitchcock, we had a chance to take photos with. WAY FUN!!!!

During the day, Sunday, N & I walked all over the Huntington Library grounds. Flowers blooming EVERYWHERE! Lot's of photos AND walking! Lunched on Salad cob style. No dressing. I am doing VERY well while traveling! Eating SO much more RAW fruits & VEGGIES. It is helping allot! We came 'home' & made ginger chicken & watched the Oscars on TV. Also, 1 of my FAIRY GOD DAUGHTERS is getting married in Oct. She tried on her dress for me. STUNNING!

My life is so full & blessed & I am VERY grateful for it & the energy to enjoy it! My Sweetheart misses me & I miss him, BUT it is good for us to be doing separate things, now & again!

My Spark 'family' is VERY important to me, too! It helps me SO much knowing you are "out there" going through some of the same things I am! Trying to maintain, still not sure where my body wants to 'land' weight wise. It is still a learning process for me! 30 days of being generally the same will be my guide! All I know is I feel great!

Not much internet connection, here, for some reason, but enough to spark to you today! I love you all & look forward to catching up with you, SOON!

    Looks like SO much fun! I'm so envious of your hike in the Hollywood hills - AND your CPK salad! I miss my nearly-daily salad lunchtime there! Made for easy weight maintenance!

    Keep up that GREAT work!!
