Good morning, friends!


It is to be a beautiful day today - woohoo! DH and I are driving over to Texas County early to take my brother to a doctor appointment - a lot of times he has been given a Wednesday appointment and I am not able to help those days. We haven't seen him in too long, so it is a good thing to do.

Joyce, I was not up so early by choice - I would wake up and most times could not go back to sleep. When I awoke at 530 this morning, I was amazed - that is late for me the past few days. Perhaps I won't be in nap-mode around 1 p.m.


Elsie, the soup sounds good. I have chicken noodle soup on my menu plan for the next couple of days. I wish to try it out in my Power Cooker XL. A Sparkfriend made it and said it was very good.


Anthony, emoticon Hope you are having some rest-from-work this weekend!


I finally completed half of an upcycle project that I began before my SD moved down and stayed with us that first year. I had purchased a linen tablecloth at a thrift store?yard sale? and decided later that I would use it to my bedroom curtains. I had even decided how I was going to do this but had never done the actual sewing. I had put this project away when SD moved in and had actually forgotten about it until my youngest DS mentioned a house project involving curtains. I then did the sewing required for one of the curtains yesterday and am pleased with the results. I hope to finish the other one today sometime.


Have a good day!

You know, we could never be friends in real life! My day starts at 10am...work until 11pm...stay up until 2am...I have a sister in AZ who is an early person like you. Just never talk to her because of the schedule thing.

Elsie, that soup will taste very good today! I believe I heard somewhere that there was a possibility of snow flakes at some point over the weekend. After our recent "scare" of icy conditions, I shall not complain of snow/rain.


I prepared a cherries-frozen-from-our-tree dessert for DH yesterday - I discovered one last package of them when defrosting our little chest freezer. There were enough cherries for one more of the desserts in the package as well. I found two packages of blackberries to look forward to as well. I reorganized some of the storage in the freezer, and that makes it easier to keep track. I have often thought that I needed a larger freezer, but perhaps not. I had been wanting to defrost it for a while, and it felt good to get it done yesterday.


I was disappointed with not as many freggie "deals" at the grocery store this week, but I likely have enough in the house already until next week's planning.


I finished my last library book early yesterday afternoon, so I made a quick trip to our county library...four more books to enjoy! I found two "new" ones from two of my current want-to-read authors. Two of my favorite authors have new books coming out this year and I am excited about that.


Have a good day!

Elsie, is the picture that of a morning glory? That is what I thought it was when I saw it, and it brought such fond memories of one of my grandmothers who always had morning glories in planters next to her house.


Anthony, do you find the steps/stairs at work help with the stressfulness of your job?


Joyce, is your sister enjoying being in SW Missouri?



We had a good dental checkup yesterday, and no money out of pocket! Then we went to lunch with the gift card that I had been carrying for about a year, and nothing out of pocket there, either, and a nice tip for the waiter with what was left.


I have been researching a few recipes for our new air fryer. There will be a blooming onion recipe tried at some point this weekend.


The temps seem so much cooler to me with the wind - or maybe they are cooler anyway.


Have a good day!

Hi, friends!


I had a very restless night of sleep - my bed felt better in the 30 minutes I was laying there and not getting up than it did all night. Perhaps it was something I ate.


We have a dental appointment today and then plan to use a gift card to eat at Outback Steakhouse afterward. We don't usually eat there unless it is with a gift card. It's a bit out of our way unless we are in Springfield anyway.


I am still enjoying some of the freggies that I got such good buys on last weekend. I really enjoyed that WalMart had most of them marked down to price match prices already by Friday morning. Perhaps I can take advantage of that this weekend as well.


Have a very good day!

The weather was great Monday to be outside. We walked through cemeteries; took pictures of the creek my father and siblings swam in; the 'rock wall' Grandfather had built to keep the creek flood waters off his farm land;
One of only a handful of log cabins left standing after the civil war was built into a modern home...I need to do a blog...
It was a beautiful day!

Good morning, friends!

I've been up for some time, but was asleep really early - the whole "early to bed, early to rise" thing. I have noticed that when I try to sign in here that I have both msn and SP problems - I am wondering now if perhaps that is "update" time.


Anthony, good for you on walking regardless! I got outside very early a few summers ago to walk outside during a July and August where it was too hot to walk during the rest of the day. I was surprised that there were a few other folks at the track where is next to my house at the same time - all of us avoiding the heat. I have seen runners with headlights before it gets light more recently.


Joyce, any of your ancestors featured in the Shepherd of the Hills play? I am thinking that you had a very nice day visiting the sites yesterday. Is your sister enjoying being here?


Elsie, lots of customers in the gift shop?


Because I was having trouble getting "on" SP over the past hour with WiFi and SP, I spent the time editing some "stuff" for my class - I felt that was a win/win and I got to mark through some things on my ToDo list. emoticon


Have a very good day, friends.

Taking my sister to visit Mom's grave and do a little story telling about the 'old home places'. Our family was involved with the BaldKnobber movement back in 1870s in Taney County!

Joyce, your walk with your sister must have been wonderful and on such a pretty day. And outside! Win/win/win!


Elsie, do you enjoy the gift shop? I would think it might be fun to visit with folks, and yet it is a hard time for them and a nice visit with you would lift their day.


Back to work with me after a great weekend. I am glad for the part time job, and don't dread it except to need to "get around" and leave the house. LOL

So enjoyed the 45 minute walk in the Ozark hills ....even scrambling through brush to cross the creek at a better spot. Of course this is so much better with company and my sister walked with me.

It was indeed a good day for a walk yesterday - I thought I would go to the track but some kids thought the same, so I decided to walk up to our fitness center - a nice 30 minute round trip walk. Some others thought the same and were out - I visited with doggies and fellow residents. It was great. There is a yard where there are a couple of friendly and fairly calm dogs that it seems a lot of people like to stop and pet. Apparently some bring treats. Anyway, it was delightful.


Not such a good day for a walk today, it seems, so it may be housewalking for me. We will see.

I enjoyed my lunch out with my former colleague yesterday - we went to a little mom and pop cafe that she suggested. I tried to choose well - I did not get fries with my patty melt, as I knew I was going to have some starchy carbs at supper, too. We had such a good time visiting.

We also drove over to my sister's little cafe over in Wright County this morning. I chose to just have eggs and one slice of toast, so felt quite virtuous for that choice.

Elsie, enjoy your day! I myself am looking forward to getting over to the track which is just across from my house - perhaps a couple of laps a couple of times today. I kinda miss the days when I could walk for an hour or more, but I'm still not there. I shall enjoy what I CAN do.

Let's all enjoy our day!

Ouch on the bruise, Joyce, and I apologize if you have shared that situation with retirement before - I usually try to "listen" - I really enjoy my 2 day per week schedule and I hope that you do as well.


Elsie - hahaha! "so little desire to do it!" hahaha! So sorry about your leg still giving you pain...


Anthony, how many flights of stairs do you think you will have done this week? I'm still "fighting" a foot issue and so I do not use the stairs ALL the time and of course I only work two days a week, so my #flights will be pretty low right now. I am still amazed that I CAN do them - I didn't used to be able to and it had everything to do with my fitness level - practically at a 0 at the time.


A colleague from 30+ years ago found me on FB this past summer and we got together for lunch back in May 2016. We intended to meet again but "stuff" got in the way - long story short, we are meeting today. It shall be fun.

No, I don't get to retire. I plan to move to part time 4-15-17 Sigh. I can physically do that without the struggle full time is.

Survived the 8 hour class....did get a 3+ inch diameter bruise on my right forearm.

I did get a few laps in the hallway yesterday - always glad for that. I was short of 10k as per my fitbit, but I had over 30 minutes recorded, and I was good with that. I did take the stairs a few times as well.


Glad you are okay, Elsie.


Anthony, good job!

I took the stairs again today, and I'm feeling good. Lots of meetings. My day is always meetings, but I love talking to people so it works out! Hope you guys are doing well and feeling a little Spark!

Good morning, friends!

Joyce, I do hope you had a nice visit with dad. So good of you to honor your dad like that.

Anthony, "laps" are great - I am back to that today. I am going to go housewalk for long enough to get my fitbit tracking time for me, but then I will try to do a couple of laps in the hallway 2 or 3 times today. Perhaps you will find the challenge is a little less each day.

Elsie, you okay?


Have a good day, friends!

I didn't have the day off yesterday. I'm taking lots of "Laps" at work. Eventually I may even add a stair trip or 2. Who knows, a little bit each day. I'm still fighting to get my calories down. Every day is a challenge.

4 hours sitting down?? I'm working a 11-12 hour day and most of it sitting. :) emoticon

Joyce, I am just a bit envious of the Silver Sneaker membership - my BF just got her card and will be going to the Meyer Center. I am a few years away yet. The last time I was trying to get to a specific age was when I wanted to turn 16 to get my driver's license. emoticon


My teaching schedule begins again tomorrow. I have had the best break and am glad for it. Not all is well in my little world, but I seemed to manage it better this time around, or perhaps I was better about looking for blessings.


Have a good day!

Joyce, good morning!


Andrew, do you have the day off today?


I saw a link in a sparkmail about fitting in fitness as one can in their work day. As I already try to do that on the days I work, I didn't click the link but thought I would mention it here.


Have a good day!

I'm so very thankful that we didn't get much of the icy stuff - I was amazed when I awakened and we still had power - too many nightmares of the ice storm ten years ago, I guess.


The chilly, rainy day was just right for chili yesterday - it smelled so good cooking yesterday and then was delicious last night! The leftovers shall be good as well. I also tried a very low sugar/no flour peanut butter cookie recipe that I saw on FB - very good for a somewhat healthier snack.


Have a good day!

It SEEMS the forecast has changed a bit here - the temps appear to be rising after 10 a.m. rather than 2 p.m. Yay for that!


Anthony, how nice of you to ask - we are good here!


Elsie, glad you probably don't have to get out in it. I was concerned DD would be out on icy roads in the early a.m. hours, but it seems the temps will be up tomorrow morning as she begins to work her weekend shifts.


Joyce, did you stay in town?


I could finish up some little things today - work on organizing, etc.

Yeah the laps at work is how I'm trying to get my step count up. I'm barely around 2000 right now. My goal is 3000 a day (start small right?)

We'll see how it goes. I am hoping the forecast is wrong too, but I'm prepared if it isn't.

Is everyone else on the team ok or could you use some winter help?

Yes, ANTHONY - sorry about that - no Andrew that I know....silly me! Somewhere you mentioned walking a bit at work - there was a time that I would try to make some laps in the hallway at work prior to my work day beginning, then during lunch time, and then in the afternoon during a break. It was a great way to get some time in, especially during bad weather when I wouldn't want to get out, either outside nor in my house.


I had to rearrange meal plans a bit as DH was not well, but it all worked and he says he is better this morning.


I am so hoping this forecast is wrong and the temps remain warmer or the precipitation is less.


Have a good day!

I did get a little bit of stairs. I have to be careful of my knees, but I went 1 down and 1 flight up. We'll see how much else I can get in before the end of the day. I think you meant me when you said Andrew, so if there is another Andrew, hope I didn't step on you! My family does some genealogy as well.

I remembered to charge my fitbit last night - now to take it out, place it back in the bracelet, and wear it!


Joyce, DH enjoyed his genealogy work. :-)


Andrew, did you get your steps in at work?


Elsie, you ready for the birds this next few days?


It will be more of the usual today after a day out of the usual yesterday.

Yes, extra stairs are great. My "Holiday" was extended because of the Branson week-end So YES...it is time to get motivated and do the exercises...

Found some wonderful information on my genealogy...and a picture of a Gr Grandfather's Sister. That is amazing!

A very nice picture indeed, Joyce.


Has anyone seen the end of the week forecast? They do seem to be moving it out a day at a time, so I am hopeful there...if I never go through a significant icing event again, I will be very happy!

I DID make some progress yesterday and plan to make more today!


I was very happy with the remainders of a pork roast that I cooked with some carrots, a potato, and cabbage yesterday in my Power Cooker XL. I am having fun experimenting with the electric pressure cooker. I saw that baby back ribs are on sale this week, so I want to try some this weekend or early next week.

Joyce, I trust that you didn't slide too much going in to work.


Elsie, that is just how I felt/slept last night - snug as a bear under a quilt! I slept a couple more hours than usual and I was quite thankful for that.


I made more progress toward the new semester beginning yesterday and plan to make more progress today.

I feel successful at the start I made at the campus yesterday and the lunch afterward with BF was very nice. We both felt successful.


I guess the slick roads in the area were a surprise - I am thankful I don't need to be out on them. I am not sure if DD had to be at work at 6 a.m. - I haven't had a text that she was in a ditch, so either she made it there or else didn't need to work. I know she said this month's schedule was a mess.


I have some tentative plans to make progress on some January goals this morning. It feels good to be able to make some progress.


Elsie, I do hope your leg feels better today.

I had a good time spending some rebate money yesterday - got some bins to organize with! So I had some fun shopping and then will feel accomplished with my organizing efforts!


I am going to the campus today to work on the new electronic format system - my BF will meet me there and then we are going to lunch, which is a nice reward, I think. LOL


Have a good day!

Happy 1/2! I went ahead and wrote out checks for a couple of bills that aren't paid online, and of course, I wrote 2016. LOL


Have a good day!

Happy 2017, friends!


I'm thinking there were fireworks to celebrate about town last night, but I didn't hear any. It has been a long time since I have seen the new year come in.


I got an email saying I have some Kohl's Yes2You rewards...totally unexpected. I use my credit card and then pay it off right then, so that I don't undo my Kohl's Cash - I am not exactly sure how the Yes2You comes into play, but hey! I bet I can find something! I got some really nice bathroom towels over the past couple of years just watching sales and with the mail Kohl's offers.


I am starting my New Year with a renewed focus to be moderate - I am tracking my water intake again, have begun being active on my Walgreen's Balance Rewards again, and am trying to do almost-always-healthy choices in meals. I know that I cannot sustain anything extreme. I actually had an email yesterday which focused on a green-yellow-red dot calendar where a person rewards themselves for the day's choices with a green [for good choices], yellow [for mostly good but be careful choices], and red [for don't do a lot of this choices]. Right now that is appealing to me to track what I do and not trust to memory. As you can see, I am not in the track every little bite mode yet.


Have a very good first day of the year!
