Another SP'er posted these questions a little while ago and I thought I'd take up the challenge. So, here goes. Do you like dogs or cats? I like both, but have a cat. I love on other people's dogs whenever the opportunity presents it... Read more

I'm back! Well, I've been here, but doing one day at at a time. I'm trying to start the new year off right - tracking food, exercising, and hopefully eating better. One of my goals is more fruit. Last week was a success - right at three ... Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
