Waking Up
Saturday, July 16, 2011      4 comments

Woke up at 7:30 this morning; usually wake up at 5 am, which makes walking easy to fit into the day. My daughter and her husband are coming this weekend to visit for my birthday. They live 2 hours away, but I have not seen them in 6 months. My... Read more

The only time my kids seem to call me is when they want something. Awhile back I desperately needed help with my mom after she fell, was hospitalized, and there was just so much to do. I even offered to pay one daughter to come once a week to h... Read more
Same day after thinking
Thursday, July 14, 2011      1 comments

After thinking about my kids, I realize when I was their age, I was pretty selfish too. Age does bring understanding and willingness to help. And it is perfectly normal; I think it was Carl Jung who talked about stages of life and the ages of ... Read more

Whoops, did not do an entry for Wednesday? Trying to be consistent. Had a great day in Sonoma and Napa Valley; wonderful big lunch, and so had salad for dinner. Today, I need to go to the museum; instead of driving, I will walk in keeping... Read more

Went downtown to the Gertrude Stein exhibit at the MOMA. On the way home, I got off the train several stops ahead,and did a great walk. Very pleased with my iphone, which has a gps map and easy to follow directions. Feel very good that I could... Read more
Diamond Street

I was not in the mood to walk, but I forced myself out of the house. But, when I got out, the fog was so thick it was like rain and my iphone was getting wet. I had planned to use it to figure out the map feature and I wanted to hold it as I w... Read more
Apricot research
Saturday, July 09, 2011      1 comments

Apricots are my favorite fruit-maybe because it is such a short season? I got out 7 apricots for breakfast, and then I weighed them in grams. I did the Spark journal for both ways, and there was a 50 calorie difference. So, weighing is best, ... Read more
Wine and chocolate
Saturday, July 09, 2011      3 comments

I over-indulged in wine last night, and I do not know what I was thinking. Possibly that I am still 30 years old??? At this age, I cannot even handle a second glass that well, but a third? When will I ever learn? Wine is actually harder for m... Read more
Friday Already?
Friday, July 08, 2011      4 comments

I just cannot believe it is Friday already! Every Friday, I pay the caregiver at my mom's. It seems to come up so often, and the money is going, going, going...... I went to a "chocolate tasting" at the library last night. A local chocola... Read more
Clean Out

I have a sub-basement in my house that has 40 years of stuff in it. Over the years every now and then I have a done a cursory cleaning, but now the time comes to really get it organized. I started with my garden items, and I found doubles and t... Read more
Back on Track

The day off was good for me; just like a weekend is good off work, and then you are glad to get back, refreshed. I still have not reached my goal of limiting my calories to 700 before dinner, but I will keep trying. There is no way I can eat l... Read more

All it took was asking!!!
Monday, July 04, 2011      2 comments

Well, after I posted the Still in the Dark blog, I figured out how to get to my team member's blogs easily. It is just so odd. I mean, I did it without thinking, it was like by asking the question, the answer just came to me. This has happ... Read more
Still in the dark
Monday, July 04, 2011      1 comments

I feel like I am getting to know Spark fairly well, but I am still in the dark as how to quickly read a blog posted by one of my team members. I see the button for "Browse New Blog Posts from other members" but that gives me the entire span of ... Read more
Breaking the rules
Sunday, July 03, 2011      4 comments

I know it is a rule of Spark, and a good one, not to copy and paste, but you have to read this article. If you google "Scary Food Science" for the rest of the article. I have cut and pasted the first paragraphs. "Show me a chicken nugge... Read more
