emoticon Good day, Oners,

emoticon emoticon emoticon

NOLA, WISHING YOU THE BESTEST BIRTHDAYS EVER!!! Sending you wishes for a healthy, happy, and year to come full of peace and good times!

First of all, Nola, many thanks for the recipe links. I've printed them out and want to try both. My GD will enjoy making the Coconut Ice for sure.

Still translating here:
~ 395 grams = 14 oz (fyi)
~ Desiccated coconut is shredded.
Nola, is your coconut already sweetened? I see that it comes unsweet and sweet.
~ Full cream milk powder? We can buy milk in powder form, have never looked to see if it is cream.

emoticon Barb, sending healing vibes your way. Just what is happening with Bill and me......feel better, go out, then back to bed....lol. Gradually, it is improving. Bette stay that way with all the holiday preps and packing for Florida we have to do.

emoticon Tricia, hope things go well with your Mom's post op apt. Christmas is going to be wonderful with all the family.

emoticon Eliza, special day for special lady!

emoticon Dorothy, glad your DH is healing. Sounds like you are having the same kind of day I am.....getting ready for the fun!

emoticon Love to you, Karen. Hope all our lurker Oners are doing well..

Got my list of things to do and checking them off.....

Goodness but being an elf is hard work!

Lady Carol emoticon

Hiya One-fer friends!

Still LOTS on my list to do! I still have one son to shop for, and I need to get DH one more gift. Most of the family gifts are wrapped, but I still have at least a dozen or so to finish (plus I'm still waiting for a few online purchases to arrive which will need wrapping)! I still need to put ribbon and tags on 30-ish "friends" gifts and deliver them. Tomorrow is our extended family Christmas Dinner, and Monday I need to do some heavy duty grocery shopping - one son has arrived, and we have three more kids/spouses/children coming next week. My house is in need of a work-over. Tuesday is off limits for my projects, as I'm taking my mom to a post-op doctor appointment on Tuesday, which will mean 4 hours of driving, in addition to the time spent in town and helping at her home. Whew! Well I'd better finish up my post and "get a wiggle on!" Like I said - lots to do!

Barb: I'm sorry to hear that you're still not feeling well, but glad to hear you noticed a bit of improvement this morning! I hope it continues! emoticon

Nola: emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Thanks for sharing the links. It's always fun to look at new holiday recipes - and I LOVE coconut! (I can usually find a bit of mischief to get into!) emoticon

Karen: emoticon emoticon emoticon YES WE CAN!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Dorothy: It always feels good to have a trim! Like I said to Karen, "YES WE CAN!!!" emoticon emoticon emoticon
Lady Carol: Glad to hear you are feeling well enough to start stepping again!!! emoticon

Eliza: Wishing you a SUPER SATURDAY! emoticon

emoticon to my other one-fer friends!

Have a SILVER BELLS JINGLING, HAPPY HUSTLE-ING - BUSTLE-ING, MERRILY CAROLING, CANDY CANE SHOOTING (challenge conquering) weekend!!!

Saturday – well it’s back. Felt good yesterday morning, but by the early afternoon I felt feverish again and just plain yucky. **SIGH** Lots of hot tea, back to the chicken soup, and gargling. Feel a little better this morning, so that’s at least a plus.

Got chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies made. The carrot cake is in the freezer. Onto ginger snaps and short bread.

Have a great weekend.

Dorothy: Glad DH is recuperating. Wow! He had a busy health day yesterday – you too!

Work continues on prep here, too!

Nola: Happy birthday!!!! emoticon And wow – lobster and bubbly. . . celebrating in style! emoticon

Glad you heard from family, too.

We’re going to my parents to pick them up then to my Uncle’s house (her brother) to celebrate. She wants to see him (don’t blame her), so it will be a bustling day. ACK!

No haven’t heard from Nicole, but I stop by her page daily.

Both your recipes sound decadently wonderful!!!

Eliza: Happy 25th anniversary! emoticon

Karen: Done w/wrapping. Finishing up baking today, because then I start on dinner prep.

Definitely sipping on anything hot, but especially tea. This danged cold!

Barb - love the polar express - it is a delightful movie. Hubby is healing nicely - thank you. Took him to the VA yesterday to get him set up for hearing aids and some physical therapy for his back plus he had some worts burned off.

Tricia - same hair cut just freshened up for the holidays. I really need to get my wrapping done today as well. I am with you and karen - going to kick these bad habits to the curb and get my healthy eating in place.

Karen - hope you enjoyed your lunceon and the train display.

Eliza - I am going to have to try me some chicken tortilla soup - sounds delish!

Lady Carol - hope you got those steps in - I did good this weekend - its alwasy the weekend that challenges me.

Busy day yesterday and today i hope to stay home and get lots of preperation done for next week. My family will be arriving on Turesday and Wednesday!

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serinity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the differance.

Good evening, all of you Elves out there!

Looks like lots of holiday prepping and decorating going on. Bet you all are going to be on the Goody List.

I'm working on my last steps to get in my 10,000 goal. It will be the first time to make my goal in over a week. Slow, but sure today. Even did some step-ironing.....lol. You know, keep moving while ironing. Kind of like Nicole's Spark-Treading.

emoticon Nola, glad to see you back online and really good that you didn't have to pay. What is coconut ice? Ice cream? And White Christmas?

emoticon Karen, did you enjoy your luncheon and the train display? Great idea for Christmas for the kids at the library.

emoticon Tricia, with that large family, bet gift wrapping is a big project. I don't enjoy it like I used to. Got mine done last night. How great to have lots of grandbabes. My two keep me busy, but would like my son to 'get on with it,' and give us more.

emoticon Barb, yummmmmm, I love carrot cake. Your Mom will, too.

emoticon Dorothy, hope your DH's surgery went well. New haircut, me, too. Just same style......short, but always feels good.

emoticon Eliza, tortilla soup also sounds yummy.

Nola, heard anything from Wendy?

emoticon Sending holiday greetings out to the rest of Santa's elves,

Lady Carol emoticon

Nope, Barb, I didn't get much wrapping done! I had everything out and had finished a gift or two, and my son, his wife and 2 year old grandson game over. I had to gather up everything and put it away. Will try again this evening! I'm going with DD to a couple of doctor appointments today.

I personalized the goal board on my start page and reviewed it! I think it will be helpful in getting back on track with healthy habits!

I'm sure all of us have a crazy busy weekend - let's all have a productive Friday!

Dorothy: Reading between the lines that the surgery must have gone well! I'm glad you're on this side of it! Enjoy that new haircut!

Nola: Glad your net is up and running again - and at no expense to you! Sending you lots of discipline and restraint as the treats you'll be making sound VERY TEMPTING!

Eliza: I love chicken tortilla soup! How nice that you had it on hand to serve company!

Lady Carol: I'm glad you felt good enough to deliver for meals on wheels! That's such an awesome service! Continue to feel better and better!

Karen: It seems you and I often find ourselves fighting the same food battles! We will come out victorious, though - as long as we don't give up the fight! Like I mentioned, I changed up the goal board on my start page. I'm thinking that if I review it regularly, it will be helpful. You know that you and I are going to be successful in making 2015 a year of HEALTHY HABITS!!! RIGHT???

I, too, am thinking of Nicole and Wendy. Sending them hugs and warm wishes! Hope they can join us soon!

Watched THE POLAR EXPRESS. What an exquisite movie. Love it.

Well, onward, fellow holiday warriors!

Eliza: Glad you had a nice visit w/your MIL and her son.

Nola: Celebration time! Glad you’re on line again! Hope all the treats got made with no tastes! LOL Love your Aussie Santa!

Dorothy: OH no! Sending healing vibes to your hubby. Hope he’s recuperating well. Have fun @ the luncheon.

Great to be back on the Internet and know the glitch was not my fault. Evidently there was a big storm whilst we were on holidays that caused major internet havoc in the area. Best part we did not have to pay anything emoticon

Carol and Bill and Barb and Jason I am glad you are all finally feeling a little better. it is so hard to keep going when you feel fragile.

Everyone is so Busy.

Karen I thought bears got skinny when they were hibernating. I can see a new you at the end of the winter. emoticon

Eliza glad you were able to score some brownie points with your MIL MILs can be sensitive little creatures. emoticon

Tomorrow I have a Marshmallow and Turkish delight making day. Then Coconut Ice and White Christmas and perhaps some Fudge. No tastes of course.........perhaps just a little one or two emoticon

Have a good day everyone! Enjoy your Christmas preparations.

Good evening, Oners

I'm seeing that the word of the day in our Spark world is

BUSY!!!! emoticon

emoticon emoticon emoticon
With the holidays beckoning, everyone is dizzy with chores to do, baking, wrapping, and preparing for family traditions. Along with the good times, comes lots of hard work.

emoticon Besides the holiday prep, I've still been suffering with my cold. Sad to say that my usual walking just hasn't happened, unless I can count my steps to the bed and bathroom. Food has been good and I am maintaining okay at this point. I'm focusing on eating from hunger and watching late night snacking. Got to confess that I am nervous about holiday temptations. I do have a plan though to allow reasonable eating and to stop any potential bingeing on sugar.

Today was our first day out of the house. Bill helped me do my usual Meals on Wheels. I was glad to be the deliverer of food, instead of the deliveree....lol. I told him he doesn't have to share everything with me. He can keep the germs.

emoticon Nola, so sorry to hear about all the internet problems and hoping this guy can hurry and get you back online to us. Tell him you are a crucial person!!!!

emoticon I'm off to wrap the last of the presents. I'm tired after that jaunt out into the world. Now, hoping Bill and I won't cough all night. Wonder why cold seem to get worse in the evening?

Take care, everyone, and don't let the busyness take over. Enjoy the process.

I weighted in early and it's another gain, hope the rest of the holidays can be a little heathier. One thing I've stopped is telling mom we are hibernating for the winter because all three of us are getting rounder and rounder. so it's skinny bears at our house no more donuts down the hole.

Nola: OH boy, hope that it works out. HATE having to deal with frustrations like that!

Thursday – well 7 days. OMG! Wrapping up baking and packing it. Have more energy today, so I should get it finished either today or tomorrow.

Cold, cold, cold. But it’s December, so there you go.

Found the DVD yesterday and it proved the Internet breakdown is between the provider and my modem. Finally a technician is coming here tomorrow afternoon to fix it. Hopefully!! I will believe it when I see it.I have had to hassle them every step of the way.

Stay safe everyone and not too much bowl licking BLTs. Weigh in tomorrow don't forget.

I'm home! I got mom home last night. Thankfully, things went well with the surgery yesterday. Mom's in some pain, but in pretty good spirits. Thanks everyone for the good wishes sent for her - they cheered my heart! My sister that lives in Las Vegas drove up and met us at the hospital yesterday, and she spent the night last night with mom. She'll leave tomorrow morning, my niece will spend some time with mom tomorrow and I'll go up Friday to help. Hopefully, things continue to run smoothly. Dad's Alzheimer's is a BIG stress for mom, and she needs every bit of strength she can muster!

Lady Carol: emoticon emoticon Sending miracle tea for you and for Bill! Hopefully it helps speed your recovery! Take care of yourself! emoticon

Barb: Oh no! You caught Lady Carol's bug! Soothing tea for you, too! emoticon emoticon I'm glad you're feeling a little better today. I hope you continue to improve!

Nola: Hope you can find your DVD soon! Might these glasses help? emoticon

Karen: How was your mom's appointment the other day? Is she doing OK? Are you still thinking about your food (about how NUTRITIOUS it is, not about how DELICIOUS those high calorie treats are emoticon )!!! emoticon

Dorothy: Hopefully your headache is gone, gone, GONE!!! I'm sorry you had a rough day yesterday. Monster headaches are N.O. F.U.N. I'll say a prayer that your DH's surgery goes well! I hope it's nothing serious!

Eliza: It sounds fun to curl up with a good read! Good job for tackling some spark videos! emoticon

Well, I've got lots to do - cleaning, wrapping gifts, even some shopping yet to do. The first of our Christmas company arrives today, and I'm not prepared! Have a wonderful day - filled with holiday spirit!

Tuesday – Jason feeling better and did go to work. So, that is a great improvement. Now I am left with this stupid virus! But with chicken soup, vaporizer, hot tea and a little self-TLC I will be better. Feel better now than I did yesterday.

I don’t think the weather helps. Cold and damp.

Ok, on the good side, got my wrapping done! Hallelujah!

Nola: Sorry to hear about the internet problems! UGH Yes, I was a bit taken by surprise with the Sydney events as that doesn’t happen! Until yesterday!

Karen: Prayers that things went well w/your Mom.

Dorothy: Hope you’re feeling better! Hope that the b-day celebration was fun.

Eliza: Hope it’s a good Tuesday!

Karen - enjoy your ME time!

Nola - what a frightful situalation - I hear you on the warm fuzzy country - our little town is no longer warm and fuzzy either - so sad. Hope you can get the internet settled soon.

Barb - sure hope you and Jason are feeling better - happy for you that the tire was free.

Lady Carol - hope you and Bill are feeling better as well - do you have your feet propped up in front of your cozy fire??

Tricia - hope your moms surgery goes well - DH is having surgerie on Thursday - hopefuilly I can finish wrapping when we get back home. Its a same day procedure.

Eliza - hope your friend is feeling better.

Was busy on Sunday - went to DD's for her birhtday celebration - I made stuffed sheels. tossed salad, and peanut butter pie. Yesterday had a monster headache all day. Last night I did not sleep well so I am really dragging today!

I am still having Internet problems. My fault I can't find the DVD to redo it all. In the meantime i am using my little camping modem. Very slow and very expensive. so i won't hang around for long.
Tricia I hope your Mothers surgery was successful. I have been thinking of you.

Carol and Bill and Barb and Jason I do hope you knock this terrible cold soon, and are well enough to enjoy Christmas.

Thanks for your thoughts for Australia during the siege in Sydney. Thank God it is over. Australia has had to grow up, it is not the warm fuzzy laid back country at the bottom of the world it used to be.

Hugs Karen, Wendy, Dorothy Nicole and Eliza.
Must go and have another look for the pest of a DVD that is stored in a "safe" place. emoticon

emoticon Hello all

Bill and I are still suffering with a cold. I'm taking my meds and focusing on getting better. I know you won't mind that I don't have my voice....lol.

Looks like everyone is busy and getting ready for the holidays. It will all be worth the effort when we spend the special time with family.

emoticon Tricia, I hope all goes well with your Mom's surgery. Can't tell you how good it feels to log on and see you here. I've missed you, dear friend.

emoticon Nicole, thinking of you.

emoticon Any more word from Nola since internet problems? Geez, but we are dependent on our technology. It is what allows us to be together.

emoticon Barb, I see that Jason is not feeling well either. What is hard is that it lingers for so long. You think you are better and do more and then are back in bed. Glad he can work from home.

emoticon Karen, I am doing the same thing about my food, thinking about what I eat and my hunger. During these holidays, it is important to hang on and do just that, be reasonable. I'm joining you in listening to my hunger.

emoticon Eliza, hey right back at you. Hope your holidays are wonderful.

emoticon Wendy, special thoughts of you and hope you are continuing to improve.

Teamies, I need to catch up on more sparking. I'm drinking my hot tea, taking my meds and focusing on getting better.

Sending hugs your way,

Lady Carol emoticon

Good morning ONE-FERS!

I'm glad the hostage situation is over in Australia. So sobering! Watching the news can be disturbing these days!

On a lighter note, I hope my one-fer friends are merry and bright, and enjoying the hustle and bustle of the season! This week is ultra busy for me. Mom and dad live an hour away, and I'll leave early in the morning tomorrow to go pick mom up and the bring her down here for her surgery tomorrow. I'll take her home and stay with her for a couple of nights.

Just when I feel like I have most of my Christmas shopping done, I remember I still have three kids left to shop for. With a big family, there is A LOT of shopping to do - just because I have done a lot, doesn't mean I'm finished! I also have a stack of gifts to wrap, and music to prepare for a meeting on Sunday. (I was just asked to serve on a trek committee for a church youth pioneer trek this summer. I'll be in charge of music, and my first assignment is to learn two new songs to teach to the leaders this Sunday.) Today, I'm packing, and making a double recipe of broccoli and cheese soup so I can take some with me to my parents, and leave a pot for the family at home.

Karen: I hope your mom's appt. goes well! Think about your food! It's not worth it to have to RELOSE REGAINED pounds, I can bear personal testimony of that - sadly! emoticon

Barb: Sending an immune booster your way so you don't pick up Jason's bug! Stay well!

Eliza: Yikes! Nine more days! Still lots to do on my list!

Nola: Hope your internet trials end soon!

Dorothy: Did you get your shopping and wrapping done?

Lady Carol: Sorry to hear you have been under the weather! I hope you're feel better now, and have your Christmas cards in the mail! I've still got to get a few sent!

Nicole: Sending love and extra hugs your way! I just read today about the loss of your mom. How sweet that you could spend her last few minutes here together! emoticon

Well, I've got to get off my duff and get busy! Not sure how much time I'll have in the next few days to check in. If I don't "see" you for a few days, take care of yourselves, and BE HEALTHY! Actually, those directives apply even if I DO "see" you! LOL!

Karen: GOOOOOOOOD morning. Hope the appt. goes well w/your Mom. Hugs and prayers.

Monday – Jason still not over this cold. It’s gone to his chest, so he’s working from home. Vaporizer, hot tea, chicken soup are the order of the day. No fever, so that’s good. The virus going around tends to settle in the chest and has lingering coughing/hacking. But he’s feeling better . . . again. I am glad he can work from home.

Out the door. Have to get to the post office and don't wanna wait too long in line. HA

Supposed to be a little warmer today, but couldn’t prove it by me yet! It was cold when I took my walk. I’m getting more used to it, though.

Oh, the tire is a freebie! There is a 2 yr. warranty on the tires, so thank goodness!

Otherwise, that’s about all the news that’s fit to print.

HUGS

Karen: Hope you’re safe in the storms! Wow! Sounds like the wind did lots of damage! Hope your power is restored!

Dorothy: Yes, much better day. Costco, where we got the tires, has a 2 yrs. warranty on punctures to the tire, so this one is a freebie,. Thank heavens!

Eliza: Hope your friend is all right. And hope you got to do errands with your Mom, too.

I'll bet it's more wind, the power was out most of Thursday with big trees tipping over onto the lines

My church friend is out of town and yesterday I noticed a BIG pine tree, from her neighbors, in her front yard. It almost hit the house by inches, chainsaw party when she gets home

Carol I hope you are feeling better soon. Enjoy your fire and scorch those germs.

Barb Yuk tires not good extra expense at this time of the year.

Tricia great to have you back.

I am up early. I have a big day planned refilling the freezer with "to go " meals. I really miss them when they are not there.

Karen duck your head as the wind passes. Stay safe and have a great weekend.

Dorothy you are probably still partying on.....Enjoy!

I'll be back later in the day emoticon

emoticon Happy pre-holiday rush, all you Holiday Elves!!!

emoticon Bill just made me a fire and I'm going to settle in and work on Christmas cards. He definitely owes me a comfy fire after giving me his germs. I have been getting my steps very gently by walking around the house periodically. Watching my low carb today because I've been feeling hungry and tempted.

emoticon Tricia, love seeing you!

emoticon Nola, welcome home. Great to see that your holiday was terrific. Excellent that the skinny you is being noticed. Your hard work shows.

emoticon Barb, glad Jason is home, but sorry to hear about the flat tire.....never a good thing.

emoticon Karen, how fun to be looking at new laptops. I love the idea of spark pedaling, too. I actually read my nook ebook while on the treadmill. It sets right on the bars at the front. Time flies.

emoticon Dorothy, enjoy your party. Hope the roads are good.

emoticon Eliza, how are you? Ready for holidays?

emoticon Wendy, been wondering how are you feeling?

I can hear my fire crackling, so best get off here. Those Christmas cards won't do themselves. Have a great w/e, everyone.

Hey! I hope everyone is having a FABULOUS Friday! Thanks for your kind thoughts, and the "welcome back." I've missed you ladies!

My trip yesterday went well. Dad opted out of the haircuts and went with my brother to some basketball games. Mom's haircut turned out fine - which is a relief, as her hair has thinned substantially in her older age, and is tricky to cut! Whew!

Barb: I appreciate your optimisitic outlook! It's contagious! How is your mom doing?

Nola: You deserved every one of those Ooo's and Ahhhh's over your weight loss! They were well earned!!! I can only handle a "gaggle of ladies" in small doses! LOL!

Dorothy: Have a nice time at the Christmas party tonight!

Karen: I hope life is treating you well in your northwest corner of the world!

I'd better get busy, lots to do today! You ladies have a nice weekend!

Tricia - glad the trip was great - sorry the traveling was so stressful! I am sure you will do great cutting the parents hair and playing the piano.

Barb - grr - I just got new tires - I would be very upset if I had a flat. Tires are not cheap!

Nola - yea for skinny you - yea a gaglle of ladies can be very tiring. My friend and the President of the bowling league tried to start something Wednesday - I really get tired of it. Not a fan of drama.

Christmas party tonight - shopping tomorrow and my daughters house on Sunday.

Friday – thank goodness! Well, Thursday evening was a total bust. Jason arrived to the parking lot on the van from Madison and found his tire flat. It’d been punctured. GRRRRRRRRRRRR. That tire is a month old! **SIGH** So, guess I know what I’ll be doing today . . . getting a new tire. Apparently the tire was punctured . . . not sure if it was intentional, or something on the road, but since nothing was found, have to assume intentional . . . . DOUBLE GRRRRRRrrrrrr.

Otherwise, it wasn’t a bad day. Just pooped as yesterday was busy.

Nola: Glad you had a good luncheon! Nice to have the skinny you noticed! I don't do gaggles of ladies too well either, but once in awhile it's fun.

Barb I hope Jason arrived home safely. Not good out there in the cold weather at that time of night.

Survived the Red Cross lunch. I don't do a gaggle of females very well. Everyone oohed and aahed about my weight loss. Some of them I hadn't seen since last Xmas lunch as you only get to know the ones you work with. They were the ones that noticed the skinny me.

Have a lovely Friday everyone. I hope the scales smiled at you this morning emoticon

Friday already here. I'm up early to get some cards done before my real day starts. Today is our Red Cross Volunteer Christmas lunch at the Golf Club so that will be good.

Tricia what a muck about trip getting home. Lovely to have you back with us again.You will be perfect with the piano solo, take some deep breaths and enjoy the moment emoticon

Karen I love my laptop it is so portable. It sits on a table beside my easy chair. Don has a tablet and it drives me to distraction. When the grandkids come with their Ipads they still want to get onto my Laptop to do things the tablet doesn't. Sounds like a lovely Birthday present. emoticon

Barb I bet Mr Spot is looking handsome and ready for Christmas.Great that John has someone special in his life.

Dorothy that must be so scary driving in the snow and ice. I hope the school bus stays upright.

I'll look in again later !

Thursday – Off to the groomers to get Mr. Spot beautified. He doesn’t like grooming attention, but is good for the groomer. Thank goodness.

Jason has a cold, but is feeling better. Thank goodness for that too.

Otherwise, making progress. Got the cards don and now it’s onto wrapping!

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Nola: Glad you’re unpacked and organized agailn.

Hope you have a good Christmas w/your family. That’s good that your DIL’s have made peace.

I was in London on Boxing Day (1976). OMG it definitely was a madhouse. WAY crowded.

I am very glad that John got to talk w/my Dad. That meant so much to my Dad. No, John won’t be home for Christmas as he was here in May. But he already has plans to spend it with his girlfriend’s family, so I’m glad.

Good for you w/3 lbs. released! AWESOME!

Dorothy: ON NO! Stay safe with the snow. Glad bowling went well!

Karen: Glad your lunch date went well! It’s always so nice to do that!

Good luck finding a laptop. I love mine.

Tricia: Glad you had a good Thanksgiving. Yes, travel is tiring. OMG on the flights!

Good luck to you Mom with the pacemaker.

Good luck w/your piano solo. I am sure it will go awesome!

Wendy: Hope you're recuperation is going well. Thinking of you.

Lady Carol: Hope all is well with you

All you other wonderful ONER'S . . . feel free to check in . . . love to hear from you.

First day sparking in a long time! I enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving week in Missouri. It was great except for the travel there and back. DD had a panic attack on the flight out, and we didn't know if we could get her back on a plane after our layover in Denver. It was pretty stressful. On the way home, our trip which should have taken 7 hours total, took 16 hours. We got diverted from Denver to Pueblo CO, due to weather where we sat on the plane with a broken potty for two hours (we weren't allowed off), missed our connecting flight which was a direct flight home from Denver, ended up rerouting to Las Vegas (which flight ended up being delayed) and had to have our son come pick us up and drive us home - another two hours. All that said, the trip was worth it - and that's saying a mouthful!

This afternoon, I'm going to help mom and dad. Mom asked me if I'd cut their hair. I'm a little nervous, as I haven't cut their hair for years. Dad will be fine with whatever, but mom is a little particular. Mom's scheduled to have a pacemaker put in on Tuesday. I'll pick her up and take her for the surgery, then stay with her a couple of days to make sure she gets along OK. So, I'll be doing all I can to get ready for Christmas before then. Playing a piano solo in a Christmas party on Saturday, and I'm feeling the stress! I haven't played a solo in years, and I get soooo nervous. Wish I would have said no when I was asked - I wanted to, but didn't have the heart to.

. . . and I'm exercising today, and going to make healthy eating choices! I'll check in when I can! Have a good day!

Barb hope your Wednesday travels went well

Dorothy hope the Thursday roads are safer, glad bowling is starting and your back into the league

Yesterday lunch date was great, I also looked at buying a laptop or tablet. I want to start Nicole Sparking (exercise while being on the computer) the Dell tablet is the same price as laptops but it sounded like the best choice; thinking for my B-day in January emoticon
We did buy the modem to go wireless so I'll be checking out NetFlex (movies and music over the internet)

Have a GREAT DAY emoticon emoticon
