Friday, January 01, 2016      39 comments

My Spark Page lists 173 friends currently (I've edited from time to time since 2011, but remove people only when they are clearly gone permanently. Often not even then). And yup, I'm quick to add friends, of my own initiative or if anyone asks... Read more
Happy New Year Hyacinths!
Friday, January 01, 2016      26 comments

I bought groceries yesterday : the store will be closed today of course. And we were out of everything! How pleased I was to see potted spring bulbs available already: tulips, daffodils, and my favourite hyacinths. I chose white ones.... Read more

SPT Video # 4: Boot Camp Hard Sell?
Wednesday, December 30, 2015      30 comments

OK then, I think Susan Peirce Thompson is very generous with respect to the free info in her first three videos. And all of the free info on her website too. But Video #4 is I think new: it references current time with bootcamp launching J... Read more

That's a watermellen lapel pin -- on the pocket of a red quilted jacket. Most of my sparkly stuff disappeared with the break-in last July: but they missed this one! (Still on the jacket . . . ). Hope everyone who celebrates had an e... Read more

So lovely to be home on this sparkling sunny day! Work set aside. Last run to the grocery store done and unpacked. Everything we need or could want right here, in our home. Dear son appeared at 6 pm last night: and everyone is delighte... Read more
Slouching Towards Bethlehem
Tuesday, December 22, 2015      28 comments

Nope, although she borrowed the title, it's not the collection of essays by Joan Didion which is on my mind. In the run-up to Christmas, it's the original 1919 poem by Yeats I'm thinking about. Year after year, no matter what our circums... Read more

Monday, December 21, 2015      22 comments

Yesterday we finally got a few strings of outside lights up -- and our Christmas tree: a balsam fir, smaller than usual but still very pretty and smells lovely of course. The Christmas ceramic village is on the mantel too. And most of the... Read more
All My Yesterdays: Will I Respect Myself in the Morning???
Sunday, December 20, 2015      21 comments

Or instead face that "walk of shame" . . . to the scale! Weighed in yesterday at the gym (on the proper balance beam scale) and I'm doing OK. Not brilliant but within my acceptable "range". And I ate better yesterday: not at the top... Read more

Friday, December 18, 2015      21 comments

Gahhhh, another busy busy day yesterday with one of those work/social thingies which I'd completely forgotten about popping up in my calendar at the end of the day, speeches droning on until after 9 pm. And a sit-down dinner thingy too. ... Read more
