I am a blog reader, not a blog writer. However, I just had to wish all my great Spark friends a wonderful, blessed, healthy and happy Christmas.

2 more people; 2 more sides
We have added a niece and cousin who are alone to our Thanksgiving feast and one especially requested my daughter's brussels sprouts. She steams baby sprouts, then sautés in a drop or two of olive oil and garlic. Wonderful! The other guest lo... Read more
A Different Feast This Year
My Thanksgiving feasts have always been the typical, fat laden Southern specialties. Turkey, of course; good, healthy protein. Side dishes included dressing made with chicken stock and butter, candied sweet potatoes (lots more butter), cheese... Read more
I saw this blog idea on another team and suggested it to our leaders, so now I am forced to blog.
I am like another poster on this topic: I have cut the clutter in my life to zilch. I do not engage in any active hobbies but I consider re... Read more
Many thanks, many apologies, many problems
Thank you to all who have sent me goodies, commented on my pictures, etc. for the past few weeks. My apologies to all of you for not promptly acknowledging your thoughtfulness. My poor mother is rolling in her grave at my rudeness! Which lea... Read more
Most of you know I was MIA a few days earlier this month for a trip to CA for the wedding of my DGD. I am not adept at inserting pictures into blogs but have posted some on my Spark page.

Home from hospital
Thank you for all the prayers and good wishes. I spent two days in the hospital after having a seizure (new experience!). I had every test possible and three specialists working hard to find out WHY. There was nothing in the brain scan or eeg... Read more
A Non-blogger blogs about nickname
I don't blog often because I live a very quiet, uneventful life so I just read everybody else's blogs!
However, I have had quite a few Sparkers ask about my name. When I got my first home computer, back in the last millennium, a friend hel... Read more
Blog prompt - disliked foods
I generally ignore food I don't like. Life is too short and there are too many good healthy foods to force down something I don't like.
The exception for me is water, which I hate. As a dyed-in-the-wool Diet Pepsi fan it is hard to force ... Read more
I set a goal to walk 1500 steps and today my pedometer read 1577! Now I am aiming for 2000 and don't expect to go any higher than that, if I ever get that far. With poor balance and arthritic knees, I am limited to walking in stores, using the... Read more
The best laid plans......
I made up my mind about six weeks ago to start moving again to try to get in better shape for my GD wedding in August and posted a blog about it. Ok - mind in gear and ready to roll. However, my normally cooperative body rebelled and slammed o... Read more
First blog ever
OK, I'm blogging. It took me a couple months to get up the nerve to try this new idea and now that I am here I will tell you a little about why I am on SP.
My DG is getting married in August and I decided I want to get in shape for this mo... Read more
