Learning More About Myself
Friday, July 03, 2015      7 comments

Since announcing that I was going to limit my time on sparkPeople, I'm learning a lot about myself. This morning I realized that what I'm telling folks ("I'm on Maintenance and I know how to do that.) isn't exactly true. The fact is that I'm s... Read more
What a Day!
Thursday, July 02, 2015      5 comments

This was one of those absolutely wonderful days. My "Inspire Your Creativity" group came to my house. I have a fenced in section of grass I call my Sanctuary. Since moving back into our house almost three years ago (another story), I haven't ... Read more
Meetup--No One Came
Sunday, June 28, 2015      10 comments

I probably cut down SparkTime by about an hour today. Today was our local Olympia WA Spark! Team Meetup. I've been trying to get the spark going there. My friend Kim and I went to the park and waited for anyone to show up. We had our s... Read more
Changing Things
Sunday, June 28, 2015      5 comments

Yikes, I'm doing it again. I've got myself too over-involved and taken on too many responsibilities because I LOVE all of it. So, I've got to cut back. And sadly, the first thing that came to mind is the 2 hours plus I'm spending on SparkPeople ... Read more
MEETUP Tomorrow
Saturday, June 27, 2015      4 comments

It is with anticipation and some trepidation that I prepare for tomorrow's Olympia WA Spark! Team Meetup. Last month we had four of us, all friends. I'm hoping this time someone will come that I don't know already....and of course some of my f... Read more
Speaking Up
Thursday, June 25, 2015      4 comments

Last night I had a two-hour-long talk with two women from my church. They were the ones who started the small group of women who meet on a regular basis. I talked to them about something that had happened four or five months ago. I was surpri... Read more
Spinning Demo
Saturday, June 20, 2015      5 comments

Today was fun. We had three wheels, one loom, and about six spindles (which I brought). Unfortunately, we "adjusted" my wheel and now it isn't quite right for spinning. I'll work on it tomorrow when I'm not so tired. The best thing was m... Read more
Weavers Picnic
Saturday, June 20, 2015      3 comments

Today was so relaxing and fun. Get a bunch of Weavers together and there is so much energy and ideas running around one gets dizzy. Our Picnic Theme this year was "table settings". Mine was the Entrelac placemat I used as a portable project f... Read more
Piano Story
Wednesday, June 17, 2015      5 comments

I'm taking a piano course. It's online, of all things. I thought taking this course would remind me to practice and hone my skills. I'm learning the skills I need to hone are computer skills. The first lesson was "This is Middle C", of... Read more
Going to the Vet
Tuesday, June 16, 2015      5 comments

My cat's nails were getting long and she was snagging them into fabric (and my pants). So, I called the Vet to get an appointment and then got out the cat carrier. When it was about an hour away, I started looking for the cat. She was on TOP OF ... Read more

My paper picture is done! You might remember last week we made paper in the "Inspire Your Creativity" group. I waited until I had all the materials at home and made a bunch a pieces in different colors, knowing I wanted to use them to make the... Read more
Featured Team
Friday, June 12, 2015      4 comments

I'm so delighted with our SPIN ME A YARN Team. I just asked SparkPeople to make it a Featured Team. Don't know if they will, of course, but here's what I had to say about them.... We are a bunch of women (no men that I have recognized) wh... Read more
My Own Paper Project
Thursday, June 11, 2015      4 comments

After Wednesday's paper making demo I brought all the tools and supplies home (to take back next week--we had such a great time.) Then I got into THE MOOD. Made blue paper, yellow paper, purple paper, etc. Now it is all dry and ready to make ... Read more
Paper Making
Wednesday, June 10, 2015      6 comments

Today the Creativity group was making paper. You make paper ...with paper. Since I have the exchange book of the gal who suggested we make paper, I've decided to create a page with my own made paper. I've got the picture drawn...her words are... Read more
The Numbers
Tuesday, June 09, 2015      3 comments

One of the fun things about SparkPeople is the numbers. We have lots of them to compare daily. For me, I check out the percentages of carbs, fats, and protein every day. My Personal Trainer told me that I should work for a 40-30-30 split. (Y... Read more
