Anyway Barb --- I know you will get used to them Can they be adjusted down... so noises not too loud...

Friday: Got my hearing aides. All I can say is this is going to take some getting used to. Everything is so loud! Oh my goodness. Hearing sounds I havenít heard before! Itís interesting

Cold, but supposed to warm up a little today. Sun is out.

HUGS and enjoy your Friday!

Sandi: Yes, music is one of lifeís pleasures that I am going to enjoy for sure. Thatís something *I* have done over the years, too, is to talk loud. NOW . . . soft. Itís a change.

The Corona Virus is a real nemesis. I will say, the flu is even more so, though.

Sun here, too. Enjoying that.

Hi Everyone! TGIF....so nice for some sparkin time ....already finished all Fri. errands including a haircut...feels good....Barb, got those h aids yet? I hope the fit & sound are all you hope for...Can't picture my world without music, & fortunate so far that my hearing hasn't been affected even though my voice & sounds are louder than the average...At least Dad thinks I talk loud...I think it comes from my large group of 40 that I need to address 2x a week. It becomes natural to talk over them...I know I shouldn't though.

Jo, have you been keeping up with the corona virus updates here...So sad about the Port Dover couple who have been screened positive...& the 2 deaths from that cruise ship. (Both were originally from Japan) Now that Canadians are arriving I'm hoping their NEXT quarantine in Cornwall will be effective. It has given me extra precautions to screen all participants in my groups.

Beautiful sunshine this afternoon...next 3 ams. back to my walks...without the mister this time... emoticon emoticon emoticon

Wednesday: Wow! Mid-week! Time is going fast.

Got a call in the afternoon that I can get my hearing aides fitted on Thursday! Hurray! Happy about that.

Cold! High of 18F. Not sure if it will make that, but at least the sun is out.

Otherwise just a normal day here. HUGS

Kat: So sorry things are not working out as you planned. Good to take a break. Wishing you good luck and peace!

I'm just in a funk right now - things not working out the way I want...going to give myself a little break from the wight thing and logging in - hoping to take some pressure off myself until about end of the month. I'll be thinking of you all.

Jo: No chores today, except snow removal (1/2 hr). and getting Lilly out. She is rebelling against going out in this cold. Wants to do her biz inside! So, it's up to me to watch when she's showing signs she has to go out and get her out and back in quick. **SIGH**

Hi Ladies! Hope you are all keeping warm & well. Dampness in the bones threatens movement today but pushing through...

Hope those hearing aids come through Barb...my last call to my Dad was I talk too loud over the phone he says...he had just cleaned the wax out of his ears...& I had speaker activated.... emoticon

Tomorrow an assisted living work presentation...may not get here...doing 25 trip photos a day. At this rate it will be another trip time before my album is complete. emoticon

Sunday: Will we a quiet Saturday. Jas is still not feeling the best. But hoping he feels better as the day goes by.

Got a phone call that my hearing aides wonít be ready till Tuesday the 25th. Apparently they are manufactured in China (which I should have checked out). Not sure what will happen. Guess things are pretty backed up. Well, just have to wait and see.

So . . .. . slow day today!

Hugs and enjoy Sunday!

Blessings

Jo: Hope the sun wins out! Had some sun here today. Nice!

Saturday; Out to breakfast. It was so nice! Glad we just had a quiet dinner here @ home. We were both a little tired, and just wanted to relax, so we stayed in. Nice.

Little less bitter cold today. The wind has calmed considerably. That makes a huge difference.

HUGS and enjoy Saturday!

Tuesday: Got the snow cleared yesterday. Not too bad. Had the sun yesterday, but it was cold. Donít mind that.

YET ANOTHER LETTER from the IRS indicating they DID NOT owe a return on Mom and Dadís last and final tax return from 2017~ looking right @ the return, they DO!!! Soooo, yet another call to the CPA who is going to try to straighten out this mess once and for all. Jeez Louise! Seriously, I think monkeys could do a better job @ this!

Jas took me out to supper last night. Really enjoyed that. Just a simple burger, but *I* didnít prepare it, serve it nor clean up after supper! Enjoyed it.

Hope itís a terrific Tuesday for yíall!

HUGS


Sandi: Sorry about the stressors. Glad for sure that you're getting incolved in support groups. That's the way to go. Just helps to be able to connect w/those experiencing the same issues.

Jo: Hope you can wind down sometime today!

Hi Gals! Back to a regular Tues. I have slept 2 nights in a row now...so jet lag is fading...buty trying to keep busy & monitor my food intake now that we're home.

Jo, are the gkids back in school? Or their extracurricular activities? How was the basement quote?

Barb, didn't know that about koalas...but it makes sense & those trees are like lightening rods for the bush fires because of all the oil in them...

Right now Aussieland seems to be drowning.....like I said Forces of Weather Extremes!

Kat, I didn't get a chance to tell you before I left, how AMAZING your photos were...you should be so PROUD of this accomplishment...don't let a pound or so diminish your sense of self though...You show determination & consistency in your program which is a main key anyway. I started this spark journey in 2010 so I am haVING a huge hiccup at this time...I will still weigh in daily & always have but will not stress out about a pound or 2...specifically now, when life has me in a stressful family dilemma ...I am getting involved in support groups dealing with caregiving support instead of eating my emotions.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sandi: Glad youíre home safely and no quarantine.

So sorry to hear your Dad is in congestive heart failure and kidney failure stage 4. **SIGH** Having dealt w/long distance caregiving for 2 yrs. before we got my parents here w/us, I KNOW that is horribly stressful. So sorry!

Yes! You are much taller than I for sure!

I hear koalas smell like eucalyptus since thatís what they primarily eat. Cool picture.

Kat: Wow! Youíll be busy.

Hi Gals!!!! So sorry Barb that you are surrounded by the nasty C word & have sad family members memories at this time. We came home jet lagged & feeling blessed to get through our Canadian border after that other nasty C word...coronavirus was spreading to Canada. I feel blessed to travel on an incredible journey but more so to get home without a quarantine in place.
I did the deed today & weighed in...I gained 5 lbs. in 3 weeks & now am at my highest since my 60 year WI...Then I was 135 now I am 155 so I hope to become more spark active & body aware. I'm back to classes...and activity levels...I could come up with many excuses as to why I came home heavier. The end result is the same too much food, not enough activities. I have to state though that humidity, bowel problems & heat played a large factor too...along with the inevitable ageing process.

So I got home & now am dealing with a terminal family condition. So I'm trying to keep my stress level at bay to remove some poundage...My Dad who has been in congenital heart failure for quite a while is regressing & was just diagnosed with stage 4 kidney failure...he has 33% function of kidneys & 35% heart function. What is more troubling are the side effects of pain meds to help his mobility issue. We are working on keeping him comfortable for the time he has left with us. My sister & I are attending his next doc appt. to question his care...we are caregiving from a distance which is a challenge in itself.

I have enjoyed reading your chats, Jo Barb & Kat regarding your weights & heights. I guess I'm the giant of the group...5 ft. 6 in. but still too much weight on me...& like your comments...too much around the belly! Maybe we can tackle this issue together! emoticon

My favourite holiday things to do....



Leaving on our trip with family support



cruising with my honey



sight seeing



feeling the sun, sand & sea



meeting new cultures



a sailing expedition to a remote island...tivua, fiji...



enjoying an animal experience for the 1st time



reading 2 books...I never usually get to read during my daily routines, trying to stay active....

Anyway, hope this gives you a look into my love of travel & learning excitement...I feel most fortunate....Now to pay those bills.... emoticon emoticon

Monday: Wow. Saturday really was not a good day. Besides being the anniversary of my brotherís death, and my cousin Ginny passing, I learned that my SIL/BILís nephew passed away as well after battling cancer. **SIGH** He was in his mid 50ís. Cancer sucks!

Well, have to start snow removal later this morning when the sun is up. Guess I know what my cardio and strength training will be.

Just hug your loved ones really tight, tell them how you feel. Never miss the opportunity.

Hereís to a motivated Monday.

HUGS

Jo: Wow! Youíre the tall on in the group! LOL Seriously, though, yes, carrying the weight in the tummy is bad for the heart . . . . all the organs. I weighed 200+ lbs. WAAAAAAY too much.

Still snowing here.

Yes, my brother was way too young.

We all have our reasons to get healthy!!!!!

HUGS and nighty night

Welcome back Sandi - we missed you!!!

I would like to get down to about 125ish; and actually according to charts and stuff, I am still considered overweight right now; so still about 20 pounds yet - I'm only about 5 foot.

Snowing here; supposed to get a few inches and I'm still traveling to Plymouth every night - about 38 miles - but should be okay if I just take my time!

Never let Yesterday or Tomorrow take up Today!

Sunday: Went to the grocery store yesterday and the post office. Wanted to get those things done and glad I did. Snowing. Still holding to the 3-5 in. but weíll see. AT the rate itís falling right now, I think 5 in. will be pretty accurate.

Otherwise, learned the sad news that my dear cousin passed away yesterday. She was 4 yrs. younger than I. She had fought adenocystic cancer (cancer of the salivary glands Ė spread to her lungs and liver) for more than a decade. I will miss her sense of humor. RIP sweet Ginny. You have lots of beloveds welcoming you home.

And it was the 38th anniversary of my brotherís passing (and would have been his 65th birthday). Still miss him daily. He was a good guy.

HUGS and blessings. Have a wonderful Sunday

And here's a smile:
