Daw Days, Good Harbor edition
Sunday, September 25, 2016      5 comments

Sparkatrons! I biked 33.5 miles today. I'm whipped. I called running buddy from back in the day. We aren't running buddies any more because I was too injured to run. Then I moved. But we stay in touch. She was running a 10K in Gloucester, w... Read more
Dawg Days, disappearing blog edition
Sunday, September 25, 2016      5 comments

Honestly Sparkers. I posted a catch up blog on the challenge questions last night. Where did it go? OK. You can the short and sweet response today. Day 20: What Are Your Hobbies? Why Do You Like Them? My favorite hobby used to be cooking... Read more
Dawg Days, virtuous edition

The blog challenge will have to wait. I'm squeezing in a quick note to be all proud of myself. Tonight is a board of directors meeting. It's the meeting where our budget is approved. My agency budget is extremely complicated. I can't even g... Read more

Tuesday, September 20, 2016      13 comments

OMG, Sparkeroonis!!!!! I got weighed and measured today. 164 pounds. 9 pounds away from goal weight. 23.9% body fat. Acceptable range is 25% to 30%. Body fat range for fitness is (OMG! I can't stand it!!!) 23% to 24%. If I reach goal, and a... Read more
Dawg Days, role model edition
Monday, September 19, 2016      9 comments

Yikes! Who is my idol??? How about... who do I try to emulate? Two women come to mind. The first is Diana Nyad. She swam from Cuba to Florida at the age of 64 without a shark cage. It took several attempts for her to achieve that... Read more
Dawg Days, favorites edition
Sunday, September 18, 2016      6 comments

Todays topic, Sparkers, are my favorites. I am also writing on the app, so formatting will be weird. Book - the James Herriot books (All Creatures Great and Small, etc). I have read them countless times. They are like family stories that I can ... Read more
Dawg Days. missing edition
Saturday, September 17, 2016      7 comments

The obvious answer to today's blog challenge is that I miss my parents. It would be fun to list the things I don't miss: mullets, too tight jeans, high heels, drafty apartments, eating rice and apples in a cold kitchen 'cause we are broke.... Read more
Dawg Days, fear edition
Friday, September 16, 2016      14 comments

Warning. Intense blog post. I'm not kidding. What is my biggest fear? I'm afraid of drowning in cold water. I guess warm water is OK. I know that I'm a reasonably decent swimmer, but I can get myself pretty worked up when I'm in wat... Read more
Dawg Days, first kiss edition
Thursday, September 15, 2016      8 comments

Ugh. The blog challenge wants me to write about my first kiss. It was gross. I can't even get into it. Nor can I remember the boy's name. He was my one and only foray into "bad boys." The whole kissing experience could only improve after that... Read more
Dawg Days, favorite holiday edition
Wednesday, September 14, 2016      11 comments

Favorite holiday... for me it is Easter. In fact, all of Holy Week. Palm Sunday. Holy Thursday, Good Friday. The Easter Vigil. Easter morning Mass. I love the meaning of the season. If I have a good Lenten period with fasting, abstinence, ... Read more
Dawg Days, week in review so far edition
Tuesday, September 13, 2016      9 comments

Write about something that happened to me this week?!?? What??? That's what I do here all the time! This is from the blog challenge. I brought this on myself. I was bored with my writing. I looked around for a challenge. This seemed good at... Read more
Dawg Days, BFF edition
Monday, September 12, 2016      9 comments

I don't talk about my BFF on Spark very much. She got a quick mention in the "who are you closest to" blog. I know for many people, their best friend is their spouse. I simply cannot say that. I have a very unusual friendship in that it has been... Read more
Dawg Days, How to tire out the Dawg edition
Sunday, September 11, 2016      6 comments

Holy smokes, Sparkinators! I am a very tired Dawg today. I've already had a full night's sleep and two naps. I was tuckered out from yesterday, which was a very active day. It started early with a fun run/walk event. It is in support of the... Read more
Dawg Days, catch up the daily blog edition
Sunday, September 11, 2016      8 comments

Where does the time go? It's been a busy week and a girl needs her beauty rest, Sparkers. Beddie-bye time trumped blogging this week! I guess I'll catch up on the blog challenge. I haven't been doing so good on the once a day thing. So... p... Read more
Dawg Days, cogntive dissonance edition
Wednesday, September 07, 2016      14 comments

I saw myself with new eyes today, Sparkerellies. It was weird. I was rushing to get to the gym on time. Somehow or other ended up in front of the bathroom mirror and I caught sight of myself in profile. Stopped me cold. I'm not a fat person... Read more
