I am a 3rd generation performing marionette artist. I am learning to live life to it's fullest, no matter what comes my way. My childhood sweetheart & I are still loving each other & the world, since High school! I am Blessed!!!!! I have found Walking our beautiful doggie; & hiking in nature is SO fun! I crave it! Also; Sheppard Pilates, "Walk away the pounds" & Zumba DVD's OR SP Nicole's 12 minute seated core workout; Swimming, I garden in our paradise pool area! Bringing in the fairy's & angels & unicorns! I 'play' in our park, on the swings, in the sprinklers, etc. My body now REQUIRES movement! I try for 200 exercise minutes, daily AND 200 Spark points. I am a better performer because of Spark People! I thank God, the Angels, AND Spark People, daily for my amazing life! My new quote: "BE THE HEALTH YOU WANT WITH WHAT YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH, & I WILL, TOO!" My new song: GOOD VIBRATIONS, by the Beach Boys. Helps me when I'm 'down'.

My life is taking a new lovely turn! Chris of Spark People suggests we volunteer! (with the pandemic, I haven't performed since 2-1-2020) As of 2-2018 I am doing that, it is SO special & rewarding, I am performing my marionettes for a local nature center! I love it, so inspiring for me & the amazing audiences! A perfect place for me to grow & focus on goals. They happen about every other month @ my favorite hiking spot using my marionettes to teach about nature! It IS magical! I am so Blessed & grateful for these experiences. I am enjoying watching my life unfold in this way! Meeting new friends & playing with like minded people!

My 'regular' job is helping my DH with his lovely small business. I am learning SO many new things & thrive because of it! His business is BLOOMING!!! Yeah! I love him so much! He is doing much better, as far as walking. Has the perfect PT doctor!

My Goals:
I reached my goal weight (3-16-2013 1 year exactly since I joined SP)! NOW, I am learning how maintain my weight & (almost) doing it, with Spark People!! I am stronger & more vibrant! I am thriving & Chris Downie is helping me be my most beautiful, healthiest, energized, whole self! I want to continue to learn to maintain my weight AND my health, easily & with lot's of FUN!! I choose to be an example of what good health looks like! I have been yo-yoing with about 20# now for almost 3 years, I am sort of ok with it & once I am not, I KNOW I will get back to goal & stay there! (Body stresses made it impossible to keep up my paces) But I am SO healthy & confident, I am jumping for joy!


My Program:
Following SparkPeople & my own inner good judgement! I have learned to keep my healthy lifestyle, together, EVEN under the MOST stress! I love moving & creating fun & joy where ever I go! Green drinks & energizing foods! I find stress happens in our worlds, all the time. It appears when we least expect it! It is how we handle every single decission, 1 at a time, that creates the out come that is our life. SP has helped me create & share the world I want to live in!



Personal Information:
I am SO blessed to be alive & living in a world with my Spiritual support, DH, my family & friends & my Sparkling friends! I am still Sparking to help support other "Sparkers"! I have found my healing, physically, spiritually & emotionally, here & want to share it with you, if I can! SP is my ONLY social network. Being an example is the ONLY way I can help anyone, else! It is up to each of us to find our own way. SP offers us the tools! Choose what works for you & share your findings with the world!

    Happy Friday! Time for a little bit of fun and laughter to get you primed for the weekend ahead. Well, in case you don't follow the "National days calendar", today is National Read a Fairy Tale day.

    So here are a few frankly fractured fairy tales that I hope will give you a giggle . . .


    emoticon What's the difference between a Northern Fairy Tale, and a Southern Fairy Tale?
    The Northern Fairy Tale begins "Once upon a time', and the Southern Fairy Tale begins "Y'all ain't gonna believe this!"

    emoticon Did you read the fractured fairy tale about the girl who lives in the woods and steals from the rich and gives it all to her Granny?
    It's titled - Little Red Robin Hood.

    emoticon Do all fairy tales begin with "Once Upon A Time"?
    No every two years they come out with a whole series that begin with "If elected, I promise . . ."

    emoticon I heard about a fractured fairy tale about three creatures who live in trees are scared of the Big Bad Wolf.
    It's called “The Three Little Figs”.

    emoticon What did Cinderella say when the photographer lost her photographs ?
    "Someday my prints will come!"

    emoticon Rapunzel is a very long drawn out hairy fairy tale.

    emoticon Most women have read the fractured fairy tale titled, "You Have to Kiss A Lot of Frogs To Find A Prince".

    emoticon The prince summoned up all his courage after he slayed the evil dragon.
    He rode like the wind back to the castle, jumped off his high horse, and proposed to the princess. She refused, and he lived happily ever after.

    And last but not least . . .
    emoticon There is a very funny little known fairy tale about Snow White's half brother - Egg White.

    I hope you have a Happily Ever After Weekend! emoticon

    Thanks so much for dropping in to visit my page and say HI, leaving your note, or goodie.
    I want you to know how much they brighten my day. emoticon

    The more we focus on the abundance of love, commitment, happiness, and stability....the more it attracts those things to us.
