Revamping the day

My plan was to walk for 45 minutes, have a cup of coffee, trim some more bushes, ride my bike, make a lasagna for us and a chocolate cake for our neighbors, etc. So I started walking this morning just before 8 and as I got further from ho... Read more

Tomorrow is my father-in-law's birthday. If he were alive he would be 94 but he's been gone for 23 years now. I think of him often and of what a good man he was, how hard he worked for his family and how important his family was to him, the th... Read more
Dreary day with the Spark

I just got back from my walk this morning when the skies opened up and the thunder and lightning started. I went earlier than usual so that was a good thing. Since I had yard work planned for this morning I had some time to spend with the Spar... Read more

Thanks to all my Spark friends for helping to make this birthday one of the most special I have ever had! I received untold goodies and so many comments on my page I spent almost all day reading them and each one felt so sincere and heartfelt t... Read more

Sure hope everyone has a happy new year. I find it easy to track exercise on the spark so I continue to do and to do that and a little reading when I am here. Thank you for all your support through the year and good luck sparking in 2011.... Read more
Falling by the wayside
Saturday, December 18, 2010      8 comments

After about two and a half years with the Spark I decided it was time to do more living and spend less time on the computer. Things haven't always gone as planned and I am not tracking as well as I should or could - either food or exercise. ... Read more
Surprise for the day

Last night our daughter called and asked if we could get our granddaughter after school so that was a fun surprise - we will meet half way and then maybe get a light supper out on the way home. She is excused from school tomorrow as it is a fun... Read more

Not a great subject today but RB and I have our first appointment to make final arrangements. We are meeting with a funeral home this afternoon to discuss cremation. Of course, neither of us are planning on leaving soon but thought it was time... Read more
Walking on

I did almost an hour on my walk this morning and then had to go do some errands. Does anyone else get frustrated with banks???? It seems like simple things take forever to get accomplished. Back home I did some time on the bike but will ... Read more

This morning I did 50 minutes around the neighborhood - it felt longer so I will try the ear buds again to help the time pass. I usually don't like them as I like to hear what is going on around me - birds, neighbors, etc. I'm off to see m... Read more

Our routine on Sundays now that we are back in the Sunshine state is early service at church (full house today!), breakfast (special treat which usually covers lunch, also) and then a trip to Wal-mart for weekly supplies. In continuing with... Read more
Best yard sale ever!

We opened the garage door at 7:45 a.m. and people were lined up and ready to buy. Items were flying out of here and the same for our neighbors. People are shopping and if garage sales are any indication this Christmas season should be a block ... Read more
Everything cleaned out

We've been through every closet, cabinet and shelf and all the stuff we decided we no longer need or want is out in the garage. We priced things low hoping it will encourage people to take something home with them. Wish us luck!... Read more

My granddaughter is off school today for Veteran's day and we are going shopping and out to lunch. At 12 she is quite the fashionista and is working on getting me to update my wardrobe. Hopefully, we can find a good compromise between what wor... Read more
Lots to do
Wednesday, November 10, 2010      3 comments

This weekend is our community garage sale and it is my turn to get rid of stuff rather than going to sales and bringing stuff home. Today I plan to go through the back bedrooms and see what's in there that can go or is no longer needed. My gra... Read more
