Love the gym!
Last year's unplanned job change was a big one. I have a better paying job with different responsibilities, new people, and a new commute to new location. However, the list of perks is pretty good. One of the best is a small but well-equipped... Read more

Have not changed my mind
SparkPeople, I've gotten used to other changes in the nearly 6 years I've been here, but the latest is a DUD. Even with the filter, it's still way too visually in your face, and it takes more effort to go to simple tools that I do use.

SparkPeople, you've let us down
SparkPeople, I've been here since 2011. Your latest unannounced, unwanted, unwelcome change is just too much. The homepage has been usurped by strangers, and personal goals and interests reduced to a minimum. I loved SparkPeople as an accountabi... Read more
It's baked potato day in the café at work. I took my baked potato and ate outside at a shaded table in the courtyard. It's so beautiful out today, pollen and all; I just hated to come back inside.... Read more
A Day Off Saturday
I spent the day in my nightshirt, accidentally wore coordinated but mismatched socks, read three books, trimmed three cats' worth of claws, and fixed really good meals. All in all, a satisfying day off.... Read more

It's Fabulous February
A pair of pants I bought in November fit nicely then, but are noticeably looser now. I'm hoping for them to get too loose to decently wear.
I've kept up with the stationary bike and treadmills in the gym at work and for thi... Read more
Happy Hump Day
I feel so much better than I did the last two days after a night of insomnia and then badly oversleeping yesterday. Today I woke up just before my alarm, felt rested, and didn't have to rush. The cats were happier too that they got their canne... Read more

Sableness's safety tips for walking alone in parks
Not in any particular order, but I thought about these after texting husband today to tell him where I was:
1. Let someone know where you are. I don't always know where I'm going when I set out, so it's important for me to let someone know... Read more
Lunchtime flora and fauna
118. John C Bonner Park yesterday - pond full of turtles. They looked so funny lined up on a palm tree trunk overhanging the water.
Today I went to a new part of a park I've been to before. I ate my lunch on a bench by the lake and saw d... Read more
Closing out 2016
"Podria haber sido peor" is the repeated refrain throughout a children's Spanish story husband and I read about the misadventures of Ratoncito (Little Mouse). It means it could have been worse.
I lost my job, but I got a new o... Read more
