SparkRandom with a Washboard

Okay, I’m the first to admit that this lil video clip seems random. It has nothing to do with fitness or nutrition. But my SparkJourney is all-encompassing. It’s about living a joyful life and for me, that means learning and trying new things. A lot of these are things I probably wouldn’t have done 40something pounds ago, so to me, it’s all relevant. Occasionally, I share one of these random things, just for fun. I had practice the other night with the band at church and we’re playing a cover of “Ho Hey” by the Lumineers. I decided it’d be really fun to add my washboard to the mix. This is the first time I’ve ever attempted playing it. I start going turbo speed at the end, because I was trying not to fall off the stool while playing washboard, kick drum and tambourine at the same time. Old Dog. New Trick. But I have until Sunday to figure it out, so it’s all good. LOL PS: That’s Randy (my hubs) playing upright bass.

Phase One of Washboard: Furry, pink guitar strap and bottlecap gloves. Will be adding more stuff later.

In other news: Audrey had a big surprise Sunday. She hadn’t weighed herself in a couple of months and she found out she lost 16 POUNDS!!!! WOOHOO!!! Several people mentioned how great she looked in our last vlog. Of course she does! She’s brilliant, funny, creative and gorgeous. We already knew that. But she’s been eating healthy Spark Solution stuff, exercising every day and growing into a statuesque (5’9”), beautiful young woman. She feels great about herself and I’m super proud of her!

We’re practicing for a ukulele duet. :)

My son, Logan, says he wants to start eating healthier and exercising more too. He said he wants to look like a Viking. Hey, we all have different motivators. We shall see. So far, he’s turned down every healthy dish I’ve offered. Maybe I should just throw a turkey leg at him. But he just graduated from high school and is working his first job, so I'm super proud of him too!

This is what he looks like as a Viking. ha ha

So, that’s pretty much the news for this week. Still Sparking along. I’m able to walk more now and I started sneaking in a little bit of hooping, so I’m slowly picking up speed. That’s good, because I do NOT want to look like a Viking.

This is what I look like as Viking.

I’ll leave you with a recent, random, creative journal entry. The prompt was to make something inspired by a fictional character. heh heh

Who lives in a cabinet under the sink? Spongebob's Angry Half Brother Who Didn't Get the Contract with Nickleodean, that's who.

Spark On, Brave and Random Sparkers!
