The first activity of the day was a walk. It is amazing how getting up and out in the fresh air sets a wonderful tone for the day. DH joined me for the 20 minute walk. Even better. When we got home, we got the juicer going and had a wonderf... Read more

This morning I decided to get out of bed at 5 a.m. to prepare for the inevitable start of the school year. I ate breakfast, showered and spent far too much time trying to make my hair look like something presentable. I am not having good luck ... Read more

Last day of paid vacation. Today, tomorrow and Sunday and then back to the amazing race! But who's counting? I am trying hard to maintain a relaxed state. I did nothing all break. A conscious choice. Trying to decompress. Now there are s... Read more

I left for the Northeast on June 20th and arrived back home yesterday, the last day of July. It was chock full of activity. I sewed "perfect pants" with my friend from high school, I had my teeth cleaned and a filling replaced. I visited with... Read more

I just wanted to take a moment to say hello to all my spark friends. I am so sorry that I have been out of the spark picture. I finally did resolve most of my computer issues, but I certainly got out of the habit of logging into spark during t... Read more

It is tougher to be motivated on a rainy day. Just is. My goal today is to work at cleaning up those neglected areas of the house. I started working on them yesterday and hope to get them cleared up by sundown. I invested in a new X-BOX yes... Read more

I woke up every day this past week with a prayer on my lips: "Please don't call me, please don't call me!" Not a very positive way to start your day. I just did not want to sub this week. My prayers were answered. Which leaves me thinking, "... Read more
