Sunday, March 13, 2016      6 comments

We DID set our clocks back! My daughter PURPLESWIMMER, her boyfriend, and I walked in the 5K Donut Dash. Yes, we did have a delicious donut afterwards. I got the 1st place for women over 70....mainly because I was the ONLY woman over 70. M... Read more

I didn't get to the Camera Lesson yet on my SmartPhone, but I am using it and learning more every day. Decided not to wait since I was able to get a decent picture of the rocks with my camera. ... Read more
Did I try a new recipe?
Thursday, March 10, 2016      5 comments

Today I was in a baking mood. I had invited a friend over for lunch, thinking I could then save calories and money. We decided on talapia, and I found a great Spark recipe for that...broiled Parmesan Talapia. It was good and turned out well. ... Read more

Have you felted a rock? I saw one at my friend's house and just had to get it from her to show to the Needlework Group today. It's got metallic threads through it...SO pretty. When I get my new SmartPhone connected to the Internet I'll se... Read more

Yes, yesterday was as good as I expected. Mandy and I got all the public rooms of the house. Lots of moving furniture....I was glad of her help. Today was also busy and fun. Mandy came back to help me put the furniture back (the finish h... Read more
My Kind of Day

This is going to be a FANTASTIC Day! I go to the Arbutus Folk School in an hour to get ready for my Tatting Class. I'll have "only" two students this time. (January's Class was 8 people--Yikes!) I prefer two though I don't get as much money f... Read more

Being Honest with Myself
Friday, February 26, 2016      5 comments

I'm in a battle with myself. Some days I fudge a little on quantities. Sometimes I track everything I've eaten, then add on a snack and "conveniently" forget to log in those calories. Or, maybe I stretch the exercise minutes a little....espec... Read more
Computers, Computers
Wednesday, February 24, 2016      5 comments

I recently bought a computer on Ebay. I figured it would be okay, as I wanted the same brand and screen size...just more memory. The new computer came on Monday. The old computer (the one I'm using now) was doing just fine, I decided to ... Read more
Getting Back on Track
Sunday, February 21, 2016      7 comments

Well the Spark site is working for me, but not the scale. I'm doing a challenge where we weigh ourselves once a week on Saturday and record that for the team. Well, yesterday I had to record 125.2, Now for some that would seem like heaven; fo... Read more

No ads today. I've been able to log in the whole day and even add a food entry with no problems. I did write to Tech Support...maybe they did something to help. Anyway, I'm a Happy Camper again! Keep Sparking! We've got a good thing goi... Read more
All Those Ads--A Rant
Thursday, February 18, 2016      6 comments

A little spouting today. I know SparkPeople has to have the ads so they can provide this wonderful site to us free of charge, but I don't want them to interfere with my logging in my food. Maybe it's just this computer. Maybe it's just me. T... Read more
Valentines Race

Today my daughter (PURPLESWIMMER) and I went on the 5K (3.1 mile) Valentines Race. Her boyfriend stayed on the sidelines, so she had two runners push the Ainsley's Angels Racing Wheelchair. I walked, of course. I bested my time for the 5K... Read more
What SparkPeople Means to ME
Sunday, February 07, 2016      10 comments

In the back of my mind, I've been asking myself why I keep logging into SparkPeople everty day. Since I reached Maintenance about 17 months ago and have consistently stayed within my goal range, what does SparkPeople give me that keeps me doing... Read more
Spindle Spinning
Sunday, February 07, 2016      6 comments

I'm still basking in the glow of the day...the very first "Tat-In" with four of my Arbutus Tatting students this morning. They had just the right questions to show that they have passed from beginners to intermediate tatters. Had a tremend... Read more
