Let's see .. I married my soulmate on Dec 23, 2007. We are still on our honeymoon :-) . We are both retired and decided to move to Florida from New Hampshire last year to get away from the ice, snow and just plain cold weather ;-) . We haven't regretted the decision. We have a 6 yr old Lhasa Apso named Matzah who is the master of the house wouldn't you know! Although I haven't worked on it in over a year I create chain maille jewelry. My interests also lie in reading - I am an avid reader and crossword puzzle worker. My favorite author is the one I am reading at the moment :-) I also do Swedish Weaving. I am on my 9th afghan and I've found the craft to be very addicting and relaxing. the winter of 2008/09 I dabbled in oil painting. Something I've always wanted to do. My first attempts are posted in my photo gallery. Don't know when I'll do another one but I have the "stuff" to do it with. I've also done crocheting and embroidery. We've become bird watchers since we moved here. They are fun to watch and the squirrel who raids one of the feeders is very cute thinking he is getting away with something. The Sandhill Cranes that reside in our park come for their hand outs, too, and now they bring their two colts (babies) with them!! I've been on a lot of weigh loss programs and none of them motivated me enough to continue. I am determined to make this work for me. I'm 65 years old and it is high time I took care of myself. I've been heavy since my last child was born in 1976. I think I can find the motivation I need with Spark ..

    emoticon so much for watching my blogs. It's very encouraging to know that you can help so many people with one stroke of the computer keys.


    Wow it looks like you are really losing those pounds. Good for you!

    Here for you all the way. I was 229.5 on March 1. It's a mindset and making wise conscious choices.

    HI! Saw you post on the SparkJews team and I just wanted to say that I love your pictures! Matzah is a most adorable dog and your sweaters are so pretty! My sister was trying to teach me how to crochet/knit/weave and such, but I don't think I'm too coordinated emoticon Have a wonderful year and lots of luck with your goals!
