It has been an odd week; not bad, but not as sunny my days usually are. I know there are those who would remind me that I am blessed. And for sure, I am, but for those of us are blessed and know it, it always a surprise when all is not sunny, ev... Read more
I hope everyone is having a good day. Last week was an odd one for me, I logged into Spark People everyday, but did not linger as I most often do. There was nothing wrong, it was just a time of introspection as I did some decluttering, I guess i... Read more
I am sort of watching "Let's Make a Deal" and enjoying the enthusiasm of the audience. Last month I told my girlfriend I would love to be on that show, she immediately sai... Read more
Don't Buy A Pig In a Poke
I am trying to clean and declutter. I say trying because my attention span is nil, not because of age, but because I tend to do many, many things while doing one, however yesterday technology got in my way. I decided to get rid of my the radio c... Read more
Eating Out Today :-)
Today my friend and I will meet for lunch. This is the first time I have been out to eat since I hit what I call my keeper weight, I weighed myself this morning and am holding; that pleases me.

It's one of the those days I seldom have. I am not sad and I am not happy, this means my day could go into a tailspin either way. I decided to take a look at some of the Blogs here at SP, it helped me to put my feelings of the day (so far) in pe... Read more
Another Good Day
I know that I can't stop waking up so early, but I should stop getting up and milling about so early in the morning. When I awakened this morning I put on an egg to boil, that, buttered toast and a cup of coffee was my breakfast. All well and go... Read more
