Day 465: Five Years
Thursday, February 21, 2013      22 comments

Today is one of those milestone events, of sorts - it's five years to the day since I joined Spark. Many chunks of my life encompass five years, but none of them feels as short as these five years. Part of that whole time-flies business as ... Read more

The internet is the most amazing* system to me. I still can't quite believe that of an instant I can be in touch with people around the world. *The word "amazing" is becoming as overused as the word "magical" - I wince every time I hear it.... Read more

I don't - for a change - have anything to chatter about, but if I had a knack for poetry or songwriting, I would write a paean of praise to The Coffee Bean. Since no muse has come calling, I'll steal something. I found this: Caffeine i... Read more

This morning is the quarterly HbA1c. I don't think it's typically fasting, in and of itself, but because it's combined with functions (i.e., kidney / liver) and serves as a cholesterol / triglyceride reading, it's fasting... You know how I ... Read more

I meant to do this yesterday, but got sidetracked so early on that I completely forgot. The daylight hours have noticeably increased - you may recall I've pointed out (probably several times) how few hours there are between sunrise and suns... Read more

On the mend - slowly, slowly. But it's all good. Full slate today: housework to catch up on; a butternut squash that's calling to be turned into "Squashed Macaroni 'n' Cheese"; ironing (I enjoy ironing when it's cold, as it warms my hands)... Read more

I know, this too shall pass, but I'm definitely just slogging through the day here. I love my morning coffee, but at this stage, I can't really taste it. Let's just hope the caffeine does what I need the caffeine to do. You know what S... Read more

Much to do today, as I function through the cold - makes everything take three times longer. At least, it feels like three times longer. Maybe it's just because I walk around with kleenex stuffed up my nose. Himself did fine with the grocer... Read more

Thursday, February 14, 2013      11 comments

Stuff to do - as always - but today I'm doing it through a massive headcold. Yuck-o. I'm such an impatient patient. So I'm off to do what must be done, and postpone those things that aren't absolutely necessary. It's grocery day, but so lon... Read more

Well, everything's happened at once this year, hasn't it? Chinese New Year... Mardi Gras... Valentine's Day... Presidents' Day. That last doesn't fly at our house. To my mind, Lincoln and Washington each get their own days. As do mothers, f... Read more

Fasnacht Day... Mardi Gras... Fat Tuesday... Pancake Day. Call it what you will, it's THE signal to indulge. I lived in Southcentral PA (think: Pennsylvania Dutch) where fasnachts ruled. Fried pieces of dough, really, is all they are. And ... Read more

Remember "Constant Comment"? Does Bigelow still make Constant Comment? For that matter, is Bigelow still in business? I could look it up, but eh, where's the fun in that? You may recall that some time back I mentioned that I drink a brand o... Read more

I feel this year to be a crossroads for me, as I try to look at where I've been and draw up a plan for where I want to go. MEDDYPEDDY's blog today discusses a philosophy class she attended this week. Regarding the 20s-something group, she s... Read more

Okaaay... spent way too much time playing with my SparkPage (well, y'know, fun is where you find it, ain't?), so I'm off to accomplish something (ahem) purposeful with the day. Aheh. Have a good'un, Sparklers - carpe diem! ... Read more
