Friday, May 13, 2016      8 comments

I'm looking forward to Monday. I WON a night for two in a hotel at the ocean an $25 to spend on dinner. I've invited my neighbor across the street...and she's a SparkBuddy, too. So, we'll be helping each other...and getting to know each other... Read more
A Better Day

Today (Thursday) was just the opposite of yesterday. Got my exercise early walking to my daughter's. She and her boyfriend (and Mia the dog) came over to stay with me all day since their apartment was going to have the power turned off. Her C... Read more

Today didn't turn out as I planned AT ALL! I'm so glad I did my exercise early in the morning. I thought I'd be visiting with my friend (she lives about 20 miles away) and then I'd have the afternoon to relax, make phone calls, and do crafting... Read more

On the Team Leaders Team there was a new message thread today questioning the need for and randomness of Team Bonus Points. For those of you who don't do it, it's a section low in the Start Page that allows you to click on Pennants for Teams an... Read more

Today was the local CROP Walk. It's a walk, not a race, and we collect money. Gorgeous sunny day here in Western Washington. My daughter PURPLESWIMMER, her boyfriend, and I walked the CROP Walk in Olympia today. It is 10K (6.2 miles) and... Read more

So glad my jury duty was over yesterday. Today I got a lot accomplished. The insurance estimator was here to check out the car; I took the car into the shop and got a rental. I was able to go to Personal Training since it's within walking dis... Read more
Jury Duty
Tuesday, April 26, 2016      3 comments

The excitement just keeps coming....don't need all this drama, for sure! Back in January when my husband was in the hospital, I got a jury summons. I asked for it to be rescheduled, and they were very accommodating. April seemed so very long ... Read more

I'm going off this afternoon on a Women's Wellness Weekend. My friend won this weekend for two and invited me along. Everything is free, unless I want to get a massage....and I just might. It's at a YMCA camp out in the woods, and the pho... Read more
Not the Perfect Day
Thursday, April 21, 2016      2 comments

Today was the opposite of the rest of the week. I had planned to go to the Red Hat lunch and they to the "Inspire Your Creativity" group. My husband had PT and I needed to drive him to that. But before all that, I drove over to my daughter's ... Read more

Sun is out and it's beautiful in western Washington. I'll get some of those dandelions today! Also, it's garbage day so my overfull yard waste barrel will be empty. Yesterday our Question of the Day for Spin Me a Yarn was: Name 3 goals f... Read more
Race for Inclusion Today
Sunday, April 17, 2016      3 comments

The race today went very well. I looked at the crowd and KNEW I'd be at the back of the pack. It was definitely a young group. The Wheelchair athletes and their runners started 5 minutes ahead of the rest of us. It was truly a wonderful ... Read more
Oly Meetup
Saturday, April 16, 2016      2 comments

Today we had our Olympia Spark! Meetup. I love that Team because it's local people so we can actually MEET. It's difficult getting people out, but little by little we're building it up. Once somebody comes out and realizes we accept them as t... Read more

I've warped my loom to practice the special technique I need for the weaving challenge that was given to us last September. We were given the chance to choose an envelope. Inside was a paper napkin. We were to use that as our inspiration for ... Read more
A Bit of Stress
Monday, April 11, 2016      2 comments

All of a sudden (it seems) TWO big projects are looming. They both have to be DONE by the middle of June. My napkin-inspired project is ready to be warped. I think I have the method--at least I know how to prepare the warp. Still fuzzy on ho... Read more
