What Makes Me Special - day 6

Friday, May 06, 2011      5 comments

Unlike most people, I *love* graveyards. I'm not afraid at all, and I like to just wander around, look at the tombstones, imagine the lives, see who is buried next to whom. It's always uncrowded and quiet, no one bothers me, and I just find th... Read more

This is, 5?

Hmmm...this is probably the first cinco de May (I don't know how to spell May in Spanish and I'm too lazy to look it up) that I haven't been happily swilling margaritas. No, it's (unfortunately) not because I'm a good li'l dieter, it's because ... Read more

The deal was to say one thing about yourself each day that made you special. I agreed to try it, and promptly claimed that for my first delightful attribute: I'll try anything once, as long as it doesn't involve parachutes. Day two ... Read more

Finally! Good news for Mac users who are BodyMedia devotees.

You know how you always have to use Safari (which is to Mac as Explorer is to Windows...only better) and then half the time it doesn't see the Java software, and even if it does, you have to go through the whole yes-I-see, USB, plug-in-now-and-m... Read more

The Spring Into Shape Challenge

Tuesday, May 03, 2011      7 comments

Well, yesterday was supposedly Day 1. I was going to start yesterday, I was, but got derailed, first by not having enough space to do a grapevine right, then by an unexpected bout of crushingly bad depression. Read more

May Day.

Sunday, May 01, 2011      6 comments

I skipped my usual trek to downtown to witness the Morris dancers and the Beltane Festival which occurs at 6:00 a.m. every May 1st. Lots of reasons, none of which alone would have been persuasive, but added up to passing on it this year. I t... Read more

Rural Life Part 10: Rocks

Saturday, April 09, 2011      6 comments

I always thought (when I thought about it at all, which was rarely) that once you gathered the stones from an area, it would be stone free. I'd go for a ride in the country and see the stone walls and piles made by farmers clearing fields, and ... Read more

Phone and internet service, please, with a side of embarrassment.

This morning started out normally enough, but when it was time for me to do some grown-up things (like filing my daughter's financial aid information before the deadline, as I swore to the poor financial aid counselor I would do this time) I cou... Read more

Received this just now: Dear customer! We were not able to deliver the package which was sent last week in time because the recipientís address is not correct. Please print out the invoice copy attached and collect the package at our ... Read more

Okay, so March has been less than sterling....

... but I largely blame that on the weather. It's been really cold (single digits and negative wind chill values? What's with that?) and snowy - one day we got like 2 1/2 feet. I wasn't really surprised - I do keep telling myself that March i... Read more

Apropos of nothing at all, did I ever show you guys my tattoo? I got the name part when we went to Pittsburgh to be with daughter #2 right after my husband's death, then added the rest of the design (after Id figured out what it would be) on a ... Read more

The way Day 1 turned out...

...was a little unexpected. I didn't do as well with the whole food thing as I had planned (the road to hell being paved with, besides good intentions, perhaps buttered toast and sherry) but I didn't do that badly, and I did do unexpectedly wel... Read more

March 1st - that new beginning I've been going on about.

February was rough in oh, so many ways, none of which are particularly interesting to the Spark Community at large, I'm sure. But you know I'm going to tell you about them anyway: no life insurance money for me, which will possibly involve law... Read more

First Zumba class. OMG

So we've had this membership to the local Y (well, 20 miles away, which where I live is local) for about two years now. My daughters went now and then and my husband went occasionally. I think I went swimming once or twice. We were on the jus... Read more
