Rudeness and Politics
Wednesday, October 24, 2012      1 comments

I really can't believe how completely rude and insensitive some people can be. I will also add that I hate discussing politics unless I am with friends. I hate to walk into a situation where things get heated, mostly because vocal conflict (we... Read more
Pinterest in Person
Monday, October 22, 2012      0 comments

I had an awesomely fantastic time today at a friend's house. She was holding a "Pinterest in Person" event, the idea being that Pinterest is all about what we are interested in - say, crocheting, gardening, cooking, etc., but it is very solitar... Read more
Doing better
Saturday, October 20, 2012      1 comments

Things are going a bit better with my broken toe. I actually didn't tape it to the next toe over, because I knew it would hurt too much for me to actually be able to tape it. I did manage to find one of those medical-type sandals people wear w... Read more
On top of everything else...

So I was careful and ate well yesterday, and was quite proud of myself as a result. I was also feeling like I was accomplishing things. Just overall seeming like a very good day. After dinner I was heading to the recliner to read for a little... Read more
Laughing at myself

Today I fixed broccoli for dinner, cooked in just a bit of water. As I was about to drain it, I decided to be lazy and just drain it into the empty teapot that was sitting on the stove. No big deal, right? I would just empty it out later and ... Read more
Some time for me
Thursday, October 11, 2012      2 comments

I had such a nice time today at lunch. I actually organized a lunch for a friend who is new to my parish. I wanted to introduce her to a couple of my other friends from the parish. Ideally, I would have invited at least six or seven ladies, b... Read more
Not much energy today
Thursday, October 11, 2012      1 comments

Well, after yesterday was so full of (for me) intense exercise - which I am sure most people would consider very minimal - I just didn't have the energy today to do much of anything. To include getting out of my chair. I made a spark recipe wh... Read more
A Small Triumph
Wednesday, October 10, 2012      0 comments

It probably doesn't compare to most of the triumphs posted by other sparkers, but today I finally finished mowing my entire lawn. I have a very small front yard, and a very, very big back yard. I honestly don't think I have ever had the entire... Read more

I am really, really tired after a week of serious cleaning and an evening of serious lawn mowing. I do think I got a significant amount of exercise and that makes me happy, but I am so tired I have to wonder if it was worth it. And I am starti... Read more
Fall Cleaning Part II
Friday, October 05, 2012      2 comments

I was spot on in my last blog - it took a total of five days of hard cleaning and decluttering, but I am finally more or less finished - with the downstairs of the house. I just about killed myself, though - I am exhausted! And every single da... Read more
Fall Cleaning
Wednesday, October 03, 2012      3 comments

I always did march to the beat of a different I decided it was time for fall cleaning instead of spring. Boy, did the house need it! I have been working my tail off for three days, and I anticipate at least two more. Who knew I h... Read more
A very good birthday
Thursday, September 27, 2012      2 comments

I actually had a pretty nice birthday yesterday, though I wasn't really expecting to. The birthday cake I made came out very well - although not as much of it was eaten at the potluck I took it to as I had expected. But I think I will put the ... Read more

Tomorrow (less than an hour away) is my birthday, and I am fighting a pity party. I won't get any presents...but that is normal anymore, and I don't really want presents per se. What I want is to be with the people I love and who love me, and ... Read more
An embarrassing non-scale victory
Sunday, September 23, 2012      3 comments

Today I wanted to look nice for church, so I decided to grab a skirt from the closet. I should add that I almost never wear a skirt. Usually I wear nice pants and a dressy top for church. This was a skirt I had bought some years ago and proba... Read more

Another doctor's appointment, so another accurate weight. And I was sort of pleased to know that I am maintaining. Not what I really wanted, since I would like to be losing, but I refuse to call it a plateau...just maintaining at a slightly hi... Read more
