Ran into a former acquaintance . . . .

This happened to me last Thursday and I've been mulling it over ever since. The lady in question was the mother of one of my daughter's closest friends when the girls were tiny. We were two at-home mothers who spent quite a bit of time... Read more
Happy Father's Day to the Great Spark Dads!
Sunday, June 15, 2014      13 comments

There are some great guys here at Spark who are clearly fine husbands and fine fathers . Having come from a challenging childhood myself -- and having been blessed with a wonderful husband who's been a super dad to our two adult kids --- I am s... Read more
Lotsa Chores Today!
Saturday, June 14, 2014      11 comments

Last evening's golf was a good reward for soldiering through the day-long conference: a whole bunch of sitting, and food that I cannot/should not eat (unanticipated: usually there are leafy and fruity options, but not this time). Oh well oh wel... Read more
Golf Again?
Thursday, June 12, 2014      17 comments

Tomorrow I'll be spending the day in one of those "continuing education" seminars -- always make me terrified about all the things I should be doing!! -- and then if the weather cooperates trying out the knee in a round of golf. It's just t... Read more
Thunderstorms coming up!
Wednesday, June 11, 2014      15 comments

. . . and that's OK with me. Lots of work on my schedule, after-work meeting also (with one of those networky cocktail things too, gotta navigate the hoovie-doovies carefully!!). So no golf happening. Plus my nasturtium seeds will be totally ... Read more
Pride Goeth
Tuesday, June 10, 2014      14 comments

Remember the boasted "no doms, nsv" blog? Aaaack!!! I spoke too soon. Pride goeth before a fall etc. etc. Yesterday my left knee put the lie to all that . . . really really sore. Took a bit of the joy out of those red polka dots! Wit... Read more
Early Morning Walk Around the Garden!
Monday, June 09, 2014      17 comments

One of my favourite things to do at this time of the year . . . just an early morning stroll around the garden in my nightgown and bathrobe with a cup of coffee in my hand to see what's blooming, and to listen to the birds. (Our house is... Read more
NO DOMS! NSV!!
Sunday, June 08, 2014      16 comments

Wow, I'm proud of my fitness level (how's that for unabashed?) After yesterday's extreme gardening (and a fabulous jazz concert last night, Myles Davis . . . ) I feel great. A little more gardening today (the planting part) and then out ... Read more
Extreme Gardening!!
Saturday, June 07, 2014      15 comments

Digging out a dead rose bush. Pruning back a completely overgrown lilac tree (the tall woody core sections which didn't bloom at all, sprouting up from the top looking all . . . dead basically!) And preparing flower beds to put in some... Read more
Super Impromptu Holiday!
Friday, June 06, 2014      13 comments

Had a wonderful time just walking and walking, enjoying urban life, going to the art gallery (special Bacon and Moore exhibition, and I also enjoyed revisiting some old faves). Found two very nice bow ties for DH also (he's a bit of a bow tie ... Read more
Soup All Gone Plan B
Thursday, June 05, 2014      15 comments

And what a great Plan B! Nope, not a non-vegan version to stave off dear daughter with chicken or fish. That would just attract the attentions of dear husband anyhow, especially if I made my chicken minestrone with basil pesto: he love... Read more
Within Range
Tuesday, June 03, 2014      21 comments

Well within calorie range yesterday -- and that exceptionally wonderful Indian eggplant/lentil supper soup was just terrific. Only problem: it's vegan and dear daughter loves it too: so it won't last out the week. Sigh. Gotta learn to share, ... Read more
Carb and Calorie Overload!
Monday, June 02, 2014      17 comments

Yikes!! Sure didn't "stick to the program" yesterday -- clocked an excess of calories mostly due to an excess of carbs (but the fats were high too). How often do I eat a hamburger? Maybe a couple times a year. And this was grille... Read more
Sunday More of the Same!
Sunday, June 01, 2014      12 comments

Well, different a bit -- but same mood and tone. Made a second batch of that fabulous Indian eggplant lentil soup with even more fresh ginger and garlic and flaked coconut (but no coconut milk): and two huge gorgeous shiny eggplants prepare... Read more
Saturday Morning
Saturday, May 31, 2014      13 comments

Don't you just love 'em? It's a gorgeous day here -- blue sky, warm, birds singing, flowers blooming (iris! chestnut candles!!) DH has headed out to the golf course for his sacrosanct Saturday game with the guys (we played last night t... Read more
