I love all living things: people, animals, and plants. I am an amateur herbalist, and love to cook with and use herbs for all sorts of things.

My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did. I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health challenges that presents, and I get "real."

I have several circles of friends: my church family, always the first friends wherever we move, my friends at the Bernina store where I used to work, my chorus friends (the source of the gold medal), my herb club and gardening friends, and the walking club that started me walking some 15 years ago. I talk about Spark People to all of them.

    I love your spark name . It make me smile. We have someone who we worked with and has retired. We always call her ladybug--she collected them. We still go out for coffee and she comes in for birthday parties etc.
    I hope you are enjoying tic tac toe!! Keep on Sparking!!

    I broke my bat on Johnny's head; somebody snitched on me.
    I hid a frog in sister's bed; somebody snitched on me.
    I spilled some ink on Mommy's rug,I made Tommy eat a bug,
    Bought some gum with a penny slug; somebody snitched on me. Oh,(chorus)

    I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas.Mommy and Daddy are mad.
    I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas,'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.(verse)
    I put a tack on teacher's chair, somebody snitched on me.
    I tied a knot in Susie's hair; somebody snitched on me.
    I did a dance on Mommy's plants, climbed a tree and tore my pants.

    Filled the sugar bowl with ants; somebody snitched on me. So,(repeat chorus)
    (verse)I won't be seeing Santa Claus; somebody snitched on me.
    He won't come visit me because somebody snitched on me.
    Next year I'll be going straight, next year I'll be good, just wait.

    I'd start now but it's too late; somebody snitched on me. Oh,(repeat chorus)
    (coda)So, you better be good, whatever you do,
    'Cause if you're bad I'm warning you,You'll get nuttin' for Christmas
