It wasn't pretty. I am starting 2018 off about 10 pounds heavier than I began it. But that doesn't tell the whole story. Apparently I lost some weight early in the year, and I have gained about 12 pounds in the last six months. I am trying t... Read more
10 Years a Sparkin'
Yesterday was my 10 year Spark anniversary. All I can say is WOW!!! At the time I was concerned that I was a little old to be embarking on such a journey. Now I am 10 years older. Funny how life works.
The anniversary is somewhat bitter... Read more
Small Changes Really Do Add Up

I love my coffee. I am probably ... Read more
Sing me a song of a lass who is gone, say could that lass be I
Full disclosure: I am not Scottish. Anyone who has ever watched the TV series "Outlander" knows that this is how the theme song starts.
I was very late to jump on the Outlander bandwagon. I don't watch much TV. Had no interest in Outl... Read more

Here are some highlights of the last 5 ... Read more
A long overdue blog
Wow, I can't believe it has been over 7 months since my last blog. I have thought about it and not done it, and now I am sorry because I would have a better handle on my thoughts if I had blogged more. But that's all in the past.
First of... Read more

It is now two weeks out. Two weeks ago at this time I think I it was beginning to hit me that the arm would not heal on its own and that I would need surgery.
All in all, I think it has gone very well. I had the stitches removed on Thursd... Read more
Broken Arm and Surgery
It is amazing how life can change on a dime.
OK I will come right out and say it and then provide details. I had a wonderful Mother's Day dinner at Legal Seafood where we ran into some of my best friends and they unexpectedly joined us f... Read more

My poochie is gone
We had to put George down today. It is really miserable that this happened the day before Thanksgiving, which is probably my most favorite holiday. His health has been deteriorating for about 2 1/2 years (slowly, of course). He has had diffic... Read more
My Goals for BLC26 (and my other challenges)
I know I have been uncharacteristically quiet for awhile. I feel that I owe an apology to my Spark friends, particularly anyone who has reached out to me, but I have not responded. A lot of stuff has been going on, and I can't share all of it ... Read more
Fitbit Comes Through Again
My Fitbit One died Monday night. I put it in the charger, and since then it will not display. While in the charger it displays "Fitbit 6.60" (I think this is the firmware version) and shows that the battery is fully charged. When I remove it,... Read more
