I saw an Angel in the clouds yesterday. Looked quite similar to the one you have in your picture.

Sorry, cutie, I don't have a clue! I am a 'self taught' learner!

Hello! I need your opinion!

There are many free on-line courses from many respectable universities. I would love to further my education and for free? Heck yeah.

This is where you come in... What classes should I take? Should I work on a Master's?

If not a Master's, then atleast on something.

Kindly do not tell me computers. I would be bored out of my mind.

I just do not know.

I have studied Political Science. I have studied Fitness and Nutrition.

With Political Science, I just do not think I want to get mixed up in politics anymore.

With Fitness and Nutrition, there really are not many jobs in this area near me.

I would appreciate any advice.

Thank you!

Hi all, It didn't snow here but all around us, Eugene got 3 to 4 inches and it snowed after we hit Reedsport on our way to Coos Bay. Highway 126 was closed due to snow, downed trees and power lines, so no mail from Eugene could get here. Crazy.

Hope you all had a great Monday. Hugs and Wishing you a great week.

The following is a sample from my UPDATED fun current blog, dated 1-2-19 Please read & comment in there! THX!
emoticon 2-12-19 I have had 2 knee problems, last year 1 from jumping emoticon in Zumba. (6 months before I could 'really' walk or get up off the floor for Sheppard Pilates again emoticon ) & this week the other knee 'popped' & leg pain was the result. (it's only been a week & I am SO much better! emoticon ) I have been healing from finding a video, my SP special friend IAMJETTA, recommended. emoticon It is a You Tube video, I use everyday, it helps my knees. I don't know how to 'link' it, but here is the title:

CURE KNEE PAIN. MASTER CHIEN YI LIN. FOUNDER OF SPRING FOREST QI GONG.
I keep the link on my desk top & watch it many times a month. But I know how it works so I do it on my own. This simple 2+ minutes has helped me more than anything! I hope it helps you, too! I am positive if I had learned about this power point, sooner, last year, I would have been healed faster.

I am SO very blessed & lucky to have found it. Another way SP has helped me SO much. While I was healing I used SP NICOLE's 12 minute seated core, workout. Still use it to stretch. It is fabulous! My SP friends mean the world to me! THANK YOU, for being apart of my amazing life. YOU make me a better, healthier woman! I appreciate each & EVERY 1 of you!

emoticon After reading AMETHYSTSTAR blog she inspired me to write:
2-7-19 I made a commitment to myself. I will Spark EVERY day, no matter what. I had prayed to find an answer to my troubles. Weight wise, especially. Then 5 minutes later I learned about SP. An answer to my prayers! I have done MANY things to keep this streak going. Today is my 2,519 day of SP, playing with this site. Even a spin that didn't take didn't change me! At the bottom of our SP page, we get 25 points for every 30 days BEING ACTIVE ON THE SITE. That is where I get this number! I feel SP changed my life. I'm here for as long as I can type, LOL! Chris's book, THE SPARK, emoticon is my connection! (I'm not on any other 'social' websites) Together we can do this. We CAN be healthier & stronger & continually learn & grow & support each other. THX for YOUR friendship, knowledge & sharing!

We seldom get snow here, in the 14 years 2 months it has only snowed 3 times, well it snowed yesterday, just a little in Florence but we had to go to Coos Bay for Don's treatment, it was quite a ride., Was exhausted when we got home. Hope everyone had a great day yesterday and today.

Today was a friend of mine Celebration of Life, it was a nice service. then went to store and picked up items I forgot yesterday, came home doing sparks, not sure if I will get to go out for a walk today or not, it is nice but getting late, lunch/dinner is almost ready.

Hope you all have day and rest of weekend.

Yeah for your back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

emoticon 1-9-19 I wore 'MY CHRISTMAS PRESENT TO ME" (team) It is so darling & fits perfectly! I wore it on my trip to celebrate at Disneyland with my 90 yr old Mom (11-14, Mickey Mouse was 90 on 11-18) & forever friend! (Our trip was Jan 4-9, 2019) emoticon emoticon

Me in mirror

Actual top, photo. I bought it just before Thanksgiving & hung it up & it helped me keep "real" during the holidays! I only gained 1# & have already released it! emoticon

With Mom, she does not usually need a wheel chair, but for the miles we walked, she did!

(Mom's walking stick has a stuffed Minnie Mouse on it. Nancy is holding it, too cute, right? Hope you can see it! Many people commented on it, Mom made it that way!)

Happy New year to you all.

Happy New Year, a new beginning, a new start. I reviewed goals, took measurements, weighed. Today we celebrated New Year's. So I did eat a little more than I should, all healthy but still too much. Last night we watched the ball drop from NY at our time, which was 9pm, so we went to bed our usual time, New Year's Eve is quiet for us.

I do feel good about the past year, for us it was a good year, a surprise Christmas announcement was we will be great grandparents again in August, our first born grandchild (a boy) is going to be a dad.

Hugs all

Judy hoping you got a good report.

Everyone seems ready for Christmas, I know I am. Tomorrow Kayla gets her vet's check up from the cyst that was drained, it looks good so I am sure all will be fine, then she goes to the groomer (unless vet says something is wrong). Saturday shopping for our groceries, for Christmas it will be just DH and myself.

emoticon 12-18-18 We have been having some VERY wonderful holiday experiences emoticon . Dinner & Christmas movies, by our fireplace; DH was honored emoticon for a business he started, 30 years ago. We had the chance to REALLY dress up. emoticon SO fun! Santa photos with LUCY, at Pet smart emoticon , giving love through my marionettes emoticon , helping through donations emoticon , &&&&. Last week I sent my Mom about 30 photos, from this year, my performances, outside beauty, DH, LUCY, etc.. She received them yesterday & said she cried, it made her so happy. She DOES email, but physical photos mean so much to her! She cuts them up & plays with them. She is so sweet. (Really missing DH Mom, she passed last year @ THXgiving, 93, but miss her!) I mailed off several packages yesterday for our family & friends on this side of the US. emoticon Walking in nature emoticon & trying to stay to my food plan. 3 days of over doing it, emoticon although healthy food, still too much. Yesterday I ate on my terms & feels SO wonderful! emoticon I truly hope ALL of our SP community is doing well, during these hectic times emoticon . The ONLY way it works for me is NOT dieting; but eating for my active lifestyle. BABY STEPS, always! emoticon SMALL GOALS COMMITMENT CHALLENGE, team is SO helpful! Check it out! emoticon

Hugs to Kayla!!!!!

emoticon 12-10-18 My performance emoticon was so fun! Children full of joy! emoticon It is SO worth it to me to volunteer my talent to the nature preserve emoticon . I started this when I joined SP.... Chris emoticon suggested volunteering & I do just that! Every other month, sometimes more! emoticon I am SO blessed!

(side view of stage)

(This little girl came up to me & wanted a hug, after asking her parents, I did. She told me I was her new BFF, plus a BILLION FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF! Made my day!)

( I always have a number in the show, the children get to work 1 marionette)

(after the show, we have a craft ready for the kids, snowflakes, this time!)

(close up of a darling snowflake!)

12-2-18 Happy Sunday! The Santa 5K was a blast! I walked for almost 6 hours without stopping, (with Jack-In-The-Box, marionette, children loved him!!!! Lot's of pre walk performers. Warmed up with Zumba instructors. Then the "Talent" came on, then the walk. I was tired when I came home, but I did it!!!!! emoticon

Today I started pulling out my show to rehearse my 'Holiday on Strings' show, for next Saturday @ Nature Preserve! I only do the performance 1 time a year. But rehearsal is VERY important. I use to perform a larger version of this show 12 times a weekend for several months. That was in a permeate theater. Makes a HUGE difference!

(this is POPO, we made him in about 1960!) I re-costume &&&& before they appear on stage, camera ready)

Congratulations Felina and Sparkle for doing well over the holiday.

I think its is great you are still carrying on the tradition of puppet shows.

Feeling lazy may be because it is so dreary and cold out. Did get pedicure today.

Ned to get myself in gear. Have a great day. Hugs

11-24-18 Today a marionette theater, BOB BAKERS' Marionettes delightful, innocent puppet shows, closed after 55 years. (Los Angeles, CA) They will still perform for touring shows. Bob, a personal friend of ours, passed at 92 years, last year. (Our marionette theater closed in 1977, after 19 years, I am carrying on the tradition, through my small company traveling shows, DH & I opened in 1978)

I'm off to hike! YES!!!! emoticon 66 degrees & sunny, SO pretty! Today is my 2,444 days of Sparking EVERY day!!! emoticon

I surprised myself by losing .5 pound over Thanksgiving.
No Christmas shopping for us this year. Instead we're each going to bake something. DH is doing his wonderful chocolate chip cookies, Mom is making my favorite apple crumb pie (which will be our dessert) and I'm going to make something pumpkin, because you have to have pumpkin for the holidays!

emoticon 10-27-18 Yesterday I performed for almost 4 straight hours! This is a BIG deal, marionettes were quite heavy, about 6# each. BUT so fun! There were 864 people counted, in this little nature preserve. Several activities for the children. My marionettes were 'greeters" & said hi to almost every one! Today is a rest day, more strength exercises, than cardio. But feeling ok, after that event. Recharging my internal batteries, LOL!
