Feeling Dumber than Dumb
Well, it's a beautiful day for a Spark Rally! And I'm supposed to be there, at Green Hill Park in Worcester. Note to self: Even if you think you know the way, GET DIRECTIONS!! I can get lost in a paper bag.... proved it today!

The Dark Gifts
As I was trying to catch up on reading my "Daily Guideposts" devotional this morning (we've been on the West coast for a funeral), I read the one by Brian Doyle for May 26. Coincidentally, that was the day of the funeral for my son-in-law's twi... Read more
Skiing at 65
OK, my sister & a few friends think I'm crazy! (And maybe I am!) But I actually had fun this past weekend. My hubby & I went to Okemo in Vermont with our oldest son & 3 grandchildren. Now, I've done cross-country skiing, but could count on t... Read more
Exercise for today.
Whew! Did bootcamp day 1. My legs feel it, though I thought I was in better shape. Actually, it's not surprising, as I haven't been to Curves since Dec. 17th. Then, thanks to our blowing snow, I spent almost a half-hour shoveling & breaking... Read more
End of Summer
Well, we're back from camp, though we'll be spending some time there through work weekend in mid-September. As usual, summer went by too fast.

Life has a way of beating you down. I love my summers, because I get a chance to spend them in the peace & quiet of our church camp. This year, I've been away more than there. An emergency with our son & family in Maine has me very depressed.... Read more
145 at last!!!
FINALLY this morning I was 145! I'm halfway there! I weigh in on Friday or Saturday, but have been so close I've been checking every morning. Now I can get a new pair of jeans & capri pants, & won't have to keep hiking 'em up! I also can get... Read more
Trouble, but not for long
I'm ALMOST to a goal of 145! Hopefully, by tomorrow's weigh-in I'll make it.
I've been SO close, but refuse to buy new jeans or capris until I reach 145.0 or below. I get close, then go up a pound or so. Maybe this time, I hope, I hope! I ... Read more
Well, it went better than I had hoped. I actually held it together & managed to read my poem without bawling. It helped that my oldest granddaughter, Kaitlin, read a poem she had written, also. She's only 9, but has wisdom beyond her years.
