A Spark team mate post this info on her Blog this morning and I paraphrase:
The Planet Mars will be at it’s brightest in the sky during this month of August. Tomorrow morning, (12:30a.m. Aug. 27th,) it will be so close to earth that it will appear as if the Earth has 2 moons. The next time Mars comes this close will be in the year 2287.
WOW, wonder if the “Little Martian Men in their UFO’s will be flying around?
Yet another Spark Friend made a quilt entitled UFO’s…Hummmm I wonder if she knew something the rest of us didn’t!!!!!!!!!!!!
Another strange August happening:
This August has 5 Sundays, 5 Mondays, 5 Tuesdays, all in one month. It happens once in 823 years, or 2833.
I'll surely miss both of these events the next time!
Up-date to my surgery. I am a bit doing better now. But still can’t chew anything and eating nothing but soft, very soft foods. I am making some strange combination smoothies to get my nutrients in, but still only can get in 600-800 calories per day and that’s with drinking Ensure. Oh how I miss my salads!!!!!! Yes, I am loosing some weight, 4.5 pounds to this date. But I bet that will stop when my body thinks it’s in a starvation mode. I hope that doesn’t happen. When I get back to eating like a regular person, (my Dentist says in MAYBE 3 months), I hope to be able to maintain that weight. Time will tell on that. As another SP Friend says, “I shouldn’t say “hope” to I should “EXPECT” to maintain that”.
I’d like to thank all of you wonderful SP Angels for all your Prayers, Goodies and comments on my SP page and Friends Feed. We are indeed a family here on Sparks, family supports one another and that is what you have done for me. I can’t thank you enough; you’ll never know how much your encouragement has meant to me. Your all in my daily thoughts and prayers as well. Please pardon me if I don’t answer each and every one, but due to my time constraints with my eyes, I can’t do that. So considered yourself THANKED here. And YES, PRAYERS do get answered.
Have a great SPARKTASTIC day as you keep YOUR SPARK alive.
