Cold Sophie

Thursday, May 14, 2015      16 comments

Today is a day off for me - it's Ascension Day and a bank holiday in Germany. Tomorrow is "Kalte Sophia", the day for Saint Sophie, and thus the name day for an old friend. I have to remember to call her - in Poland where she's from, name days a... Read more

Here's a link to the 5% Challenge Community Team where you can sign up if it sounds like something that would "spark" you. (If all goes well, I'll be a Firecracker again)... Read more

I lied...

Monday, March 02, 2015      10 comments

In my last blog post, I said I would be posting from Florida. I lied. I'm back in Germany now, having arrived last Friday after a long trip that took me from Minneapolis to Philadelphia to Frankfurt and finally back to my little home town near S... Read more

24 Hours

Wednesday, January 28, 2015      13 comments

In about 24 hours, I'll be getting in line at the Frankfurt airport to board a flight for Dallas/Fort Worth on my way to Florida. I'm not sure about the logic of that, but... Read more

"Doe, a Deer"

Sunday, January 18, 2015      11 comments

This blog has nothing to do with "Sound of Music", Julie Andrews or deer. It's about starting at the "very beginning." My trusty scale told me this morning that I've lost another two pounds making a total of 5 since I made me most recent restart... Read more

Hold that thought!

So far, so good. I've lost another pound after losing 2 pretty quickly in my personal challenge just after Christmas. Better still, I've been sticking to my other goals and am often reminded of my word for the year - "thrive". When things are no... Read more

Thriving in 2015

Happy New Year, Spark friends! My “Fitter By First” personal challenge went pretty well. I lost three pounds and about half an inch off my waist and abs. More important than the numbers is that I revisited and reestablished some of those go... Read more

Fitter by First

Monday, December 22, 2014      8 comments

I started out on an online challenge about two weeks ago called “Fit by First” but found very quickly that it was NOT for me. It sounded fun, but I found that the workouts consisted of exercises many of which I’m not able to do for a number of r... Read more

(Not) Hopelessly Behind

Sunday, December 14, 2014      11 comments

There's always hope! This semester at the Bible school has really kept me hopping. When I took on this new "project" in the spring, I didn't know how time and energy-consuming it would be. I'm loving it, but it has meant that other things have t... Read more

Falling into fall...

Friday, October 03, 2014      13 comments

Long time, no blog! This has been a really rough couple of weeks for me. I had a deadline for reporting on my father's estate. I’ve been struggling for months to get the documents together. Not only am I NOT good at bookkeeping, it has been a re... Read more

New Semester

The new semester at the seminary starts tomorrow. I'll be teaching 11 students in Intro to Christian Education. This is a new course for me and I'm putting the finishing touches on my syllabus tonight. Procrastination has been raising it's ugly ... Read more

New Shoes

Wednesday, September 03, 2014      13 comments

I got some new trainers yesterday. I had to throw out a pair while I was in Florida. They were getting pretty old anyway, but all the salt water and sun caused them to develop a less-than-lovely aroma that I couldn't get rid of. Read more
