Spring's Coming - So Exciting
It's been a rough winter for us. Fall set the stage when my dad died and I had to retire. Yesterday the news reported that for our area, with over forty inches of snow, this February will go down as the snowiest month on record since snowfall ... Read more
What a Week - Part 2

Tuesday = Delivery of ramp and revamp of garage so klutzy me doesn't do any more acrobatics going down the step into the garage. Trip to Best Buy to buy new Gateway deskt... Read more

Salad = a Sub without the Bun
I love subs - I mean LOVE subs. But you know what I discovered? When I'm craving a sub, it's the "innards" that I'm after - the lettuce, onion, peppers, meat, and cheese. Thankfully, I'm not a bread addict. Unless it's one of those Pillsbur... Read more
Every Thursday night, through habit, my daughter says to me, "Aren't you glad tomorrow's Friday?"
And I reply, "Every day is the weekend for me now that I'm retired." She smiles and nods and goes about her business - and will say the sam... Read more
Didn't make it here yesterday, was busy all day. That's a lesson learned not to say I'll be back the next day. We just don't know how our days will develop.
Yesterday was my first time out since my surgery, and it was difficult, to say ... Read more
Well, here we are with another new day and another chance to get it right. Good luck to all of us with that.

Rejoining the Living
I logged in just once in the past 60+ days, and that was to update my weigh-in. I've neither blogged nor read others' posts during this time. A friend sent me a new goodie and tried to draw me back amongst our Spark family to no avail. I have... Read more
Good Neighbors = Bad Food Choices
My beloved father passed away last Wednesday (November 11) after what was for me a traumatic two weeks of hospitalization. I was with him at the end and was comforted by how serene and peaceful his passing was. He was a good Christian man who ... Read more
Not This Way
I wanted to lose weight, but not this way. My dad was admitted to the hospital with leukemia, double pneumonia, and H1N1 flu. He has two bacterial infections in his lungs. He's on oxygen to help his lungs handle the pneumonia, and he's confin... Read more
Someone else blogged about moderation today, and as I replied it got me thinking.
I think moderation is the best way to lose weight. It might be a little slower than a full-out assault is, but I think it's better in the long run. A prob... Read more
I had a really good weekend. My daughter and I made the most of our girls' day out. Since we had a good bit of rain coming, we went to a mall. Once in, once out, stay dry! A good mall is great for avoiding bad weather. We did some shopping,... Read more
Friday, Glorious Friday!
This hasn't been too bad a week. Dad's feeling a bit better, so that makes everything else seem trivial. Other than a peanut butter cup frenzy at the beginning of the week, I haven't over-indulged, so I'm looking for the scale to go down inste... Read more
