I can't figure out how to set up some of my current teams to receive my bonus SparkPoints. When I go to the page to set it up I am not finding how to search for a team that I'm already in that's in the hobby category -- just city, state, sports teams, careers and organizations, etc.

What am I missing here? Help, please!

Well, great. I hit something and now it says I set it up and I got 25 extra points. But how do I know which teams will get the points? Do you get to choose different ones each day?

Hope you have a fun lunch with "Betty and the Girls"!

I'm at home today trying to get some things done around the house. I watered the side yard and some bedding plants and shrubs by hand this morning before 10:00, and watered the patio plants and back yard shrubs yesterday morning. Since my watering day is Thursday, I can run the sprinkler in the front tomorrow. No sprinklers are allowed except that one day per week, before 10 in the morning and after 8 in the evening, and on other days even the hand-held hoses, drip systems, or buckets are restricted to those times.

I'm not concerned about keeping my front lawn green anymore, just the plants and shrubs and trees. So right now the front grass has gone dormant. I gave up on my back lawn completely this year and put down mulch everywhere. Doesn't look real great, but it's cooler than putting down gravel or rocks. At least we're not back on Stage III yet where we're down to watering every 2 weeks. And I know some of you live in areas where you can't water at all!

So basically, that's what I did this morning, and now I'm working on clearing out unneeded items to donate to my friend's church bazaar. Actually, I'm enjoying my time at home, and I feel like I'm getting something accomplished. But thinking about a lunch at a local Mexican restaurant is making my mouth water!

Good morning team! do you realize this is the last Wednesday in August? where has the month gone????

Today I'm having lunch with the girls . . . . one of my neighbors (85 year old Betty who walks me into the ground!) invites her girlfriends (mostly volunteers from the library) for a lunch get together at our local mexican restaurant. One of my favorite things!

What are you doing today????

I hope you have a good one everyone!

Good Morning emoticon Team,

Wishing you all a Blessed Sunday and Week ahead...

Thanks for your friendship and your support.. Sorry for not getting back to Spark on Saturday as many things came up that needed my attention.

I'm still adjusting and trying to settle into my regular routine after my beloved Dad's passing, still can hardly believe he is not here with us.

Thanks for understanding.Let's keep Sparking on Together... emoticon emoticon

I've definitely got to manage my time today. I'm meeting my daughter and two of my grandchildren later today for the week-end at a water-park resort hotel. I'll watch the kids while my daughter studies for a test and then goes to take the exam on Saturday afternoon to hopefully qualify her for teaching another subject in high school. I've got lots to do around here before I leave! My mind is racing right now thinking of a few craft items to take for my grandkids to work on while they are not in the pool -- and a few books to share with them, too.

On our team wall today Judith posted a picture with the words, "May you find moments that make you smile today!" I love that sentiment!

Here's what made me smile today -- or actually, I laughed out loud.

My daughter is notorious for telling me she'll call me back when she has to hang up the phone suddenly to tend to something. Then she forgets, and days go by before she calls again. Today I texted her to ask if she was on her lunch break yet. She texted back, "Yes. I'll call in a decade." Just as I was thinking she must have been REALLY busy today, she texted again, "Seconds."

Don't you just love auto-correct? And guess who is still waiting on that call?

Afternoon emoticon Team, as you know I'm back from Toronto from my beloved Dad's Service, it was both beautiful and emotional, good to be with family but hard too, both my parents are in Heaven now, good that I will join up with them again but sad here as they are not with me in the physical sense but will always remain in my heart forever....

emoticon for all your Support and Kind Comments while I was away. They were so welcomed and appreciated.... emoticon

Afternoon emoticon Team,

For us in Western Canada we are having "Times of Cloud and Sun" with temps of 78 with real feel of 83 degrees and no rain today but we did the other day which was good especially with all the heat wave dryness and forest fires we have had here, we were also on a Water Alert Stage 3 where the usage was limited...Glad we are off that stage, but we do need more rain here, that's for sure...

As always I cheer you on for a Fantastic Week ahead, let's stay focused on our plan of action and Go for it... emoticon emoticon

Didn't get to bead yesterday . . . there was a raging fire yesterday, driven by the wind that spread to within 2 to 3 miles of us (as the wind blows). Many friends & family were evacuated . .

I run our local neighborhood watch group & Facebook group, as well as a Fire Watch page, and assist the neighborhood watch groups in 2 areas that were evacuated or preparing to evacuate.

It was pretty stressful for a while.

We have an awesome volunteer Fire Department. The Forest Dept got on it, and we had 2 retardant bombers and 6 helicopters dropping water on the fire.

So thankful they got it under control!

So good that the ticket got dismissed and you can cross that stress off your list.

And oh, how I would love to wake up to 55 degree weather! How I envy you! It's 11:30 p.m. here now and 84 degrees. We're supposed to have a low in the high 70s for tonight. Stifling!

If your DH is trying to grow veggies, that's pretty hard to do without much sun! I've given up trying because my backyard is too shady. But sometimes you just have to get outside and dig in the dirt!

I bet the turquoise looks great with that copper. Enjoy your play time!

Thankful for a cooler temp today . . . high expected to be around 90.

Woke up to 55 degrees, so I've been outside most of the morning. Took pics of DH's first attempt at a 'garden' since retirement last winter. We live on a forested 5 acres, lots of tall Douglas Firs, and not much sun.

Oh, and by the way, DH took his handicap placard to the city and the court clerk did dismiss the ticket. Whew!!!

Now it's time to play with some beads . . . picked up some turquoise this week . . .

I started out the day by working in the flower/shrub bed that's along my front sidewalk. Still not finished pulling out unwanted, invasive shrubs (and stumps) to someday replant others, but at least I made a dent.

Too, too hot to be working outside anymore today. I came in when the temp hit 94 degrees. It's expected to be over 100 today, with heat indices expected to reach the 107-112 degree range this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon.

Now it's time for a nice, Saturday afternoon rest! Hope you're all having a great day!

Thanks for the link. I will check it out.

$438 is a lot of money for such an oversight!

What a day! At least your Wednesday has been better than Tuesday!

Hope you can get the ticket erased off your record. When you're stressed about a root canal, you just don't think of everything like putting up the handicapped placard. Grrrr! How frustrating!

Cat, if you have time, take a look at website I posted today on the the Favorite Crafts Websites topic on this team page. The artist Jean Van Brederode, whose work I like, makes jewelry using copper, too. Some of her pieces are interesting, and I thought of you when I stumbled on that page.

I'm having a happy stay-at-home Wednesday!
Which beats the sucky Tuesday we had yesterday . . . I'm going to post this as my blog today . . . but here it goes, something like this....

It started off with DH getting a 3 hour root canal. Afterwards, he decided we may as well make a trip to Costco, since were were more than half way there. Well, the heat was oppressive plus it was so smoky (due to forest fires) that we could hardly breathe. We should have just gone home. . . . but we didn't.

We decided to stop at the tool shop to pick up my new rock tumbler. We didn't notice the ticket stuffed under the windshield wiper until we'd already left that place and driven to the next stop on our list.

We couldn't believe it! Apparently, we had forgotten to put DH's handicapped placard in the window at the tool shop. (DH is a left-leg amputee and he's been using the handicap placard since 1985.)

In the fine print at the bottom of the ticket, it said we had an appointment to appear in court in 2 weeks and or we could send them a check to pay the amount of $435!!!!

So, by the time we got home, we were totally exhausted, mentally, physically and spiritually! Drained!

If you want the end of the story. . . check out my blog.

And now it's Happy Tuesday already!

I'm back from keeping my three of my grandchildren, and the other two were able to come over and swim with us on Sunday afternoon. I love having them all together.

I think it might take me a day or two to recuperate now. Whew! am I worn out!

Best wishes for a productive week ahead!

I'll be out of pocket for the next few days. I'm heading to my daughter's house to keep three of my grandkids while my daughter and son-in-law are celebrating their 18th wedding anniversary in Las Vegas. I can hardly wait!

Hopefully I can log into SparkPeople on my iPhone (if I remember!), but I doubt if I'll do much more chatting while I'm away.

Hope all of you have a wonderful week-end. Keep on Sparkin'!

Just thinking after seeing another of Judith's posts on our team board --- I think it would be fun to create a painting or collage and use the words and/or phrases of encouragement that Judith has been cheering us on with lately. I have an idea for one based on an assignment that came from one of the art therapists whose interviews I listened to recently. Hmmmm......

Yikes is right! But how clever of you to cover up the spots with butterflies!

We did Silk Painting in our "Inspire Your Creativity" group today. One of the gals had purchased silk scarves for us; they only cost $5. Mine was creased where it had been in the package, so I ironed it. I was careful not to get the iron too hot, and use a press cloth. However, the iron spitted some brown spots on it. Yikes. Well, I was making a butterfly pattern on the scarf, and so quickly decided to put two butterflies on that end to cover the stain.

Good afternoon, Everyone!

And I did have a good afternoon today with SparkFriend McJulieO at Craft Play Day at our friend Donna's home. We helped Donna put together triangle-shaped flag banners made from recycled book pictures and book text. Not sure how many we got finished today, but a lot. These will be on sale at our annual Friends of the Library Book Sale in October. I haven't been able to host our usual weekly play day at my home since March, so it was nice to get together with friends at Donna's comfortable home.

It was GREAT! There were SIX of us. We sang Happy Birthday three times. Lana even did it in Sign Language. Bonnie came with three Birthday Cards...and none of us knew that Alice's birthday was the same day as Kim's yet Bonnie had a card for her, too. The cupcakes were a hit, too. I got rid of all of them...only ate one.

Good, Patti! 120 is a big WooHoo! Hope you had more people show up at your Meetup today. I'm sure your friend Kim enjoyed and appreciated all your extra efforts for her birthday.

I've been gone from home all day and I am beginning to wind down now. I met my two oldest grandsons and my daughter-in-law in San Antonio today (about 40 miles from my home because it was on the other side of town), and treated them to a few hours of golfing at TopGolf. If you've never heard of it, it's a very interesting and enterprising concept with golfers on three levels hitting balls to one souped-up driving range -- plus food, drinks, live music, and various game rooms with pool tables, interactive TV video games, shuffleboard, and no telling what else that I didn't see. After that we went to Bass Pro Shop and then to Freddy's for a milkshake before they drove home. Whew! No wonder I'm tired! (But a good kind of tired.)

I'm warping my 4-Harness loom, and now I realize I picked a very complicated pattern. The diamonds in a diamonds looked SO pretty. The threading isn't anything like the 1234 I'm used to. I keep messing it up! I'm making progress....slowly.

Today is our Meetup for the Olympia Spark! Team, and I've planned a Birthday Party for my friend Kim. I made two different SparkPeople Cupcake Recipes (Rainbow and Cream Cheese Chocolate), bought balloons, banners and even some little game butterflies so we can play them if no one else comes and/or give them away if they do. It's in an hour. I'm pumped!

Oh yes, I'm now at 120.......WOOHOO!!!!

I've been retired for 7 years now, but I still subscribe to a website called "Box of Crayons" that mainly teaches coaching skills for managers. One of the week-day newsletters they send out is "Great Work Provocations," and it usually includes a question you might ask yourself as you begin that day or it shares a quote. Today's message was this quote:

"The creative mind plays with the objects it loves." ~ Carl Jung, psychiatrist

That's why we creative-minded Sparkers are "All Kinds of Crafty."
