Yesterday was a long trip (225+ miles) to Portland to see my Spiritual Adviser. I've seen her off and on a couple times a year for about 7 years now, whenever I want to review my Spiritual Journey. She has also lost a lifetime partner. Since ... Read more

Things are going well with me. We have to go to Fed Ex tomorrow to print off Programs and pictures. My DIL is going along. We pooled our pictures, so it gives a pretty good picture of Ed's life. When we get finished at the Copy Shop I will ha... Read more

I had a good birthday with two friends coming at 7:15 with cards and a visit. Yes, I did know they were coming and these are my early morning friends who know I get up at 4. Then, at 9 am my "new" daughter-in-law brought a gorgeous bouquet of fl... Read more

Today was a full day. My friend came at 8 am to walk with me. I suggested we walk the two miles to my bank to see if I could get money out of my account. (I tried to buy gas with my debit card last night and it was refused. The attendant sai... Read more

Okay, enough. Actually, I'm having a ball in some ways. You know his death was expected; he was in Hospice and we had lots of support. We had time to talk about all the elements of what might be unfinished and what to do afterward. It's true... Read more

My No-Go Zone
Thursday, July 28, 2016      8 comments

I guess everyone on Maintenance has a No-Go Zone. At least I do. My "GOAL" when I was losing my weight was 125, so that is what I consider right for me. I'd like to get down to 120 sometime to gauge whether that weight feels more energetic th... Read more

My daughter inadvertently deleted the recent pictures on my camera, but I got one to show you. My first response was...."I actually LIKE my picture!" I think it does have something to do with knowing I'm at a good weight for me. ... Read more

One of my SparkFriends replied to my blog about SparkTeams. She sent me the bouquet of flowers as a SparkGoodie, and we had a "conversation" about Teams. Here's part of the letter I wrote her. THANK YOU FOR THE BOUQUET. I LOVE FLOWERS IN ... Read more
