Can You Listen?
Wednesday, February 03, 2010      3 comments

Are you a good listener? It's mentioned in the new Spark Book that we need to learn to listen. What you say? I listen to everyone everyday. I do more listening than anything! But do you really listen? When someone tells a story, do you li... Read more
I Won't Compromise Some Things
Tuesday, February 02, 2010      3 comments

I'm willing to do almost anything to be healthy. But there are some things I won't compromise. Most of it has to do with cooking. I LOVE cooking and I have several recipes that my DH loves. I make a lot of SP recipes and the family loves the... Read more
I Didn't See What Was Before My Eyes
Monday, February 01, 2010      3 comments

It is true that we can't see the forest because of the trees. I have a Spark Friend who is older than me (I'm 64) who hikes all the time. I have been envious of her because she lives near a lot of hiking trails and mountains. I've never hiked... Read more

Spring is in the Air!
Thursday, January 28, 2010      3 comments

Spring is in the air! I walked outside today for the first time since Christmas. The reasons are many: I got a treadmill for Christmas and I've been using it, the rains have temporarily stopped, I have an 11 a.m. dentist appointment and I do... Read more
What Happened to my Taste Buds?
Wednesday, January 27, 2010      7 comments

I think eating healthy foods has changed my taste buds. Occasionally I eat something I shouldn't and it tastes like, well like puke. Today my grbabies were eating a store-bought Rice Krispie treat and I asked for one little bitty corner. I at... Read more
Why Massage?
Tuesday, January 26, 2010      6 comments

First of all, I massage for relaxation. If you had said massage ten years ago, people would have thought: S-E-X! Today there is an oriental massage/foot reflexology spot on every corner, mall, hotel, etc. You see the signs outside advertising... Read more
Lazy Day

I'm having a lazy day today. I have a fire going, my 2-year-old granddaughter is with me, and it's going to rain. I'm staying indoors. I just completed my strength training but haven't done cardio yet. Going to try while she's napping. Wha... Read more
Sunshine or Not?
Sunday, January 24, 2010      2 comments

I can't keep track of this Calif. weather. We had a long stretch of rainy weather plus all the assorted problems that go with it. We had high winds, hail, snow in the mountains, downed lines, etc. Then part of yesterday and today it was cold... Read more
I Did the Wrong Thing Right
Saturday, January 23, 2010      2 comments

The other day I went shopping. I blogged before that it's probably at the top of my list of worse things to do. I shop for clothes only under duress from hubby and DDs that I'm looking a big shabby. Anyway, by noon time I had had one disappp... Read more
Quiet Weekend?

It might be a quiet weekend around here. Everyone seems to be leaving town. My DS and his little one (3), another DS, and my grandson (12) who lives with me are all going to L.A. for a kick boxing competition and then Disneyland. We got a c... Read more
Shopping Done, I Hope
Thursday, January 21, 2010      2 comments

Well, I did the dreaded shopping. First I went to Macy's Woman expecting to find some fancy clothes. Nothing. They got rid of everything after New Years. I asked if I should go to the regular Macy's and the woman said they only had clothes f... Read more
Big Day Tomorrow
Wednesday, January 20, 2010      4 comments

I call it a big day, but it's a big day in horror land. I have to go shopping. I've mentioned I'm going on a cruise and I need formal wear. Of course, my idea of formal wear is nice pants and a glittery top. So off to the mall I go. I HATE ... Read more
Rain, Rain, Don't Go Away
Tuesday, January 19, 2010      3 comments

I love rain and cold weather. It always makes me want to be more active--well, cold weather anyway. I could sit all day (not good) and watch it rain. And being in central Calif., we need the rain desperately. It started raining on Sun. and h... Read more
