Making Waves (Lake Manawa Summers Book #1) by Lorna Seilstad.

Historical fiction, set in 1895 at Lake Manawa Resort, known at that time as the "Coney Island of the West." It also has a lot of humor in it. A fun read perfect for summer!


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

A. A. Milne

The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks

"If you say "no" to a food in the store, you only have to say "no" once. If you bring it home, you have to say "no" every time you see it on the shelf. Don’t bring home things that tempt you!"

Reading "Fit Bottomed Girls Anti-Diet" book. Light reading and practical advice about keeping it simple and how small changes can lead you to success in weight loss and fitness. Also, I'm reading through the Bible this year, so that's a daily read. emoticon

Candle in the Darkness by Lynn Austin; historical fiction set during the time of the Civil War.
She is one of my favorite authors.

re-reading Cape Cod by William Martin

I have to be diligent about caring for myself. 100 DAYS OF WEIGHT LOSS is a great way for me to keep focused. Day 1 is July 1, 2017. Build habits to produce success. Most of these habits I have at least tried before but did not sustain. First habit: delay eating by using a timer.

"The perfect 10 Diet : 10 key hormones that hold the secret to losing weight & feeling great--fast!"
by Michael Aziz M.D.

He starts out by talking about how common nutrition is lacking on so many levels, how food IS medicine, and how the medical profession overall knows little about nutrition. -- Doctors do not have the time nor the knowledge to guide people towards better health via nutritional changes in what they eat. (It is easier & quicker to offer a prescription than to WORK towards change that will bring health to you!)

"We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible."
~C. Malesherbes~

"Your mind will be like its habitual thoughts; for the soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts."
Marcus Aurelius (121-180 AD)

"In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps." Proverbs 16:9
