MAGENTA VELVET
Sunday, November 08, 2009      15 comments

Every weekend (or oftener if I run out) I make a big pot of fresh soup and keep it in the fridge for midweek suppers. When I walk in the door from work, my self-discipline is generally at its lowest ebb for the day. I'm always insanely ... Read more
Dancing Queen AND King
Saturday, October 31, 2009      7 comments

My Friday night Latin American dance class with my husband is really turning into a highlight of my week. It's such a great break from the intense "left brain" stuff which is our work (we do work together-- which doesn't necessarily mean ... Read more
Calling All Texas Wedding Belle Fashionistas
Sunday, October 25, 2009      7 comments

I am attending a family wedding in Austin, Texas in November and I don't have very much information about it. So here I am, requesting a bit of advice/insight about "local norms" and wedding dos and don'ts as they may differ from those practi... Read more
The Iron-y! Part Two.
Saturday, October 17, 2009      10 comments

Today I was ironing an "emergency" shirt for our son. He can iron, he does iron, but he was running late to get to work -- and I was prepared to show a little mercy! Our iron worked fine long enough to get the shirt done for him, thank... Read more
Holiday Feast-Making: Pre-Fab, Less Flab!!
Saturday, October 10, 2009      10 comments

Don't read a word of this if you have the Martha Stewart gene: it's a shocking revelation! But I don't -- not even the Betty Crocker variant -- and here in Canada we're celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend. So as I was running around th... Read more
October
Sunday, October 04, 2009      7 comments

October is my second favourite month of the year (a close second behind that bright green fuzzy new leaves period in May!). I never want to go on holidays somewhere else during either October or May; the change of seasons is best here, at ho... Read more
Lovely weekend
Sunday, September 27, 2009      6 comments

What a lovely mix of activities this past weekend! Our ballroom class met for the first time Friday night: my husand and I aren't very good, but it's a lot of fun and a great way to spend time together. Rumba (we'ver forgotten so much) a... Read more
Shopping in My Closet Part Two: Frivolity Frolic! (Not About World Peace)
Saturday, September 19, 2009      11 comments

It's been sunny but getting chilly and over the past couple of weeks I've been shifting the pastel/flowery/sleeveless summer cottons and linens out of my closet, slowly moving the fall stuff in. One last wearing for the tan cotton suit -- bye b... Read more
Charlie Care
Friday, September 11, 2009      9 comments

Charlie (my golden retriever) was pretty muddy this morning. He had been for a long walk with our son yesterday, with a swim, and although completely dried off his long, magnificent coat was tangled and matted a little, especially on his chest ... Read more
Stuff I Love or At Least Really Really Like
Saturday, September 05, 2009      10 comments

1. Husband -- 30 years later, what I still know for sure is that the smartest, luckiest thing I ever did was marrying Mike. 2. Kids -- works in progress (as all we are) but both terrific human beings who make me proud. And of course num... Read more
Rainy Lazy Weekend
Friday, August 28, 2009      7 comments

Latish on Friday night after a great theatre production -- it's raining on the skylight over my head and I can hear the wind howling gently. And the forecast calls for rain all weekend. Not such a bad thing, actually -- an excellent reaso... Read more

Yesterday was three months for me at SparkPeople: and I continue to be amazed at and grateful for this remarkable site and all the people who participate in it! I'm continuing to track my nutrition faithfully. Most of the time I am hittin... Read more
Muchos Nachos Not-so Great!
Monday, August 03, 2009      6 comments

I was thrilled to be able to play golf yesterday -- it was nine holes only, and with a power cart: but still! Beautiful evening, best company (my husband); and we stopped for a glass of wine on the patio of the club house afterwards. "Let's ge... Read more
Persistence
Wednesday, July 29, 2009      3 comments

I'm enjoying the thoughtful comments on blogs from SparkFriends and in particular the message boards in my new At Goal and Maintaining team. It's very helpful to be part of a community of people who are trying to be healthy, know it's not... Read more
Beginning the Work of Maintaining
Thursday, July 23, 2009      4 comments

So far, I'm not getting much of a sense of how many calories I need to eat to maintain weight loss . . . so I'm just sticking with the programme for now. I don't want to be gaining weight, that's for sure, particularly since I'm still not able... Read more
