It's been a while...

Saturday, September 13, 2014      6 comments

Yes, I'm still here, though my Sparking has been erratic at best. I can't believe it's been over a year since I blogged. A lot has changed. I made peace with my Georgia town and work did get better. I hired some great people, some also t... Read more

Getting back to cooking...

Saturday, July 27, 2013      5 comments

It's been ages since I checked in. Things are going well. I'm trying to get more time in the evening, which means my computer time in general in curtailed. In fact, I consider it a victory of sorts when I don't fire up the computer in the eve... Read more

Ooops...

Well, it's not like I didn't see this coming, but seeing it on the scale is a little depressing. Yes, I've gained weight. Since November, when I'd gained a bit. It could be worse, but I know I'm on a path to just keep gaining weight and well,... Read more

Laid low...

Saturday, March 16, 2013      5 comments

I know I've kind of dropped off the radar, but hopefully I'll be back soon. The move went well, but was harder than I thought it would be. While I love the peace of this place, the limited closets and storage have proved to be challengin... Read more

Moving...

Saturday, February 16, 2013      7 comments

I have been sporadic here on SP lately and I miss it. I have a good reason though -- next Sunday I'm moving. About six miles up the road. Still that entails packing, which is just something I hate to do. Almost with a passion. It's weird. O... Read more

Year in Review... 2012

Monday, December 31, 2012      3 comments

Tomorrow we'll welcome 2013. This has made me a bit reflective. It's been quite a year for me, both good and bad. The good -- I accepted what has turned out to be a good job opportunity. I attended not one, but two, very good professiona... Read more

Figuring things out...

Sunday, November 18, 2012      5 comments

It's been a while and Thanksgiving is almost here. I've decided not to move. A variety of reasons, but I just didn't want to give up the open floor plan as it's just me, I didn't want to take trash to a dumpster at the end of the street, and I... Read more

Decisions...

Saturday, October 13, 2012      10 comments

It seems hard to believe, but I've been at my new job for six months. For the most part, it's going okay. I'm finding that I enjoy the management aspect, though it does have it's downside. But, that's part of working and life. The decisi... Read more

My baking drought is over...

Sunday, October 07, 2012      7 comments

I haven't baked since I moved back in April. Which is sad, because not only do I enjoy the results of my labor, I enjoy the process of baking as well. However, it's always hard to get used to a new kitchen and new appliances and really get a c... Read more

Recharging the batteries...

Saturday, July 28, 2012      4 comments

I got back on Sunday from my last trip to tiny village in Southern IL. I added a day to the trip (using all but one of my vacation days), but it was worth it. The pictu... Read more

On a positive note...

I hope my US friends are enjoying the 4th of July. Again, I want to thank everyone for all of their kind words and support. It got to me thinking that it can't all be negati... Read more

Muddling through....

Saturday, June 09, 2012      8 comments

First, thanks to everyone for their kind words of support. Well, it's been a little over a month with the new job. The more I learn about this organization as a whole, the more I know this is not an organization I want to work for long t... Read more

A short rant & update on my car...

Saturday, May 05, 2012      10 comments

Today was a fairly good day. I was able to successfully test drive where I'm going on Monday. I did learn today after looking at the new employer's portal that they do not give Memorial Day as a holiday. This bugs me on so many levels. I had... Read more

So, the Move....

Sunday, April 29, 2012      10 comments

It has been almost two weeks now since I moved to my new city in Georgia. It has not been an easy move. Big lesson learned - House Hunt! If I had, I probably wouldn't have moved. I moved into my apartment a week ago this past Friday. I... Read more
