The Report of My Demise Has Been Greatly Exaggerated...

Sunday, January 24, 2016      1 comments

To paraphrase Mark Twain, who apparently had an erroneous report published about him that he had died. A similar thing happened to me in that someone with the same name--Carol Smith--died in our area a few days ago. When I saw that name lis... Read more

Nutrition...and a Sad Turn of Events

Saturday, May 02, 2015      2 comments

Motivated by a message from a New Jersey sparker, I decided to try the nutrition tracker again. To my surprise all the old favorites were still there, quite a list. Also to my surprise was that my breakfast totaled close to 400 calories! I'm try... Read more

Bad Start to the Weekend

Saturday, February 07, 2015      2 comments

Time is going by too fast...just noticed that daylight saving will be here early in March. I look forward to that but it is also a reminder that the year is racing by, and it's only the second month! Yesterday I was unloading trash buckets ... Read more

Exercise Counts, But So Does Diet!

Thursday, February 05, 2015      0 comments

Yesterday I was determined to get to the gym after a brief hiatus. I took a "step" class which turned out to be stepping with weights, toning with weights and exercises with weights, with very little pure "step." Not that I'm complaining--I... Read more

Cats in the Winter

Thursday, November 20, 2014      2 comments

Winter is closing in even though it's only November. I feel concerned for my outdoor cat, Pumpkin, who sleeps in an outdoor shed at night that is mildly heated with one of those portable heaters. She seems fine, though, when I go to her in the m... Read more

End of Summer Blues and an Update

Friday, September 12, 2014      0 comments

Today summer officially ends for me as this is the day the pool closes. Always a sad occasion. Molly the lab will be sorry to see it close too, as she loves tearing across the water in pursuit of some floating toy--the closest she'll get to bei... Read more

That Was the Week that Was

Sunday, July 27, 2014      1 comments

Have been bothered lately by some minor back pain...hope it's not a result of diving off the board. I'd hate to have to give that up. Mickey (the older dog) is doing fine after having an emergency tooth extraction last week. He was pitifull... Read more

Oh, What a Night!

Sunday, June 22, 2014      2 comments

Kids arrived last night for an early celebration of the grandson's birthday. After dinner (prepared laboriously by me), daughter, son-in-law and of-age granddaughter decided to catch the late night showing of "Jersey Boys" at the nearby mall. ... Read more

A Freak Incident

Friday, June 20, 2014      1 comments

Yesterday I awoke to DH's informing me something about broken glass--in my half-asleep state what he was trying to say didn't register; I thought something had happened in the pool area--but he said no, the deck! But when he said "the dogs will ... Read more

What Happened to Spark Mail?

Tuesday, June 17, 2014      1 comments

I checked out my last blog today and was surprised to see three readers' comments! Wow! It used to be that one was notified by Spark e-mail if there was a comment on your blog, but I received none. So thanks to those who responded; I will be mor... Read more

On Diets, Lessons and Etcetera

Thursday, June 12, 2014      3 comments

OK, I know I'm not seriously overweight--but I am frustrated with the remaining four or five pounds I'd like to take off, for good. So Monday I decided to investigate again a diet I followed back in the day that led me to shed almost 20 pou... Read more

June Is...Well, You Know

Monday, June 02, 2014      0 comments

Can't believe it's June already--and as the song goes, it's bustin' out all over! Weather is near perfect, pool water is warm (thanks to heater) and the prospect of summer is almost too much to bear. (My favorite season, hands down.) Yester... Read more

If It's Exercise, It Works!

Tuesday, May 20, 2014      0 comments

Yesterday I proved that non-traditional exercise can indeed make a difference: I spent about an hour and a half or maybe close to two hours cleaning the outdoor furniture, sweeping the deck and moving old plants out of the way. This morning, the... Read more

Busy weakend...After barely recovering from my week-long vacation in Hawaii (fabulous!), had another major event, my granddaughter's graduation from college. The three of us (DH and I, and son) drove down to Baltimore for the ceremony, arriving ... Read more
