Anticipation

Yay, have finally got around to planning some vacation time later this summer and also during the winter. It's always terrific to have something to look forward to: and additional motivation to keep fitting into the shorts and bathing suit... Read more
All Good

OK then: found some replacement geraniums, very low price too: and a couple dracaena spikes: pots all sheared back, replanted. Looking quite nice again: I won't feel guilty pangs sitting on the verandah! Also found a new bathing suit, on s... Read more

It's hot here . . . and yesterday turned out I'd been scheduled for an 8:30 am appointment without prior notice to me and also received a "prep memo" dense 3 page email at 7 am that I needed to review for that appointment and yup, headed in to w... Read more

Not My Problem
Thursday, July 21, 2016      24 comments

OK, I can't fix some problems. You knew that already. And I knew it too. Of course I did. They're just too complicated. They run too deep. And I'm not all-powerful. Or remotely close to that. What I can do is pretty l... Read more
Hilarity
Wednesday, July 20, 2016      28 comments

I cultivate a stance of mild hilarity. Mild only, but generally that's enough. So often in the work I do, I'm confronted with adversarial stuff. Chest thumping. Knuckle dragging. Raised voices, verging on yelling. Confrontation. Attempt... Read more

Weight Loss Motivational Blogs Only?
Sunday, July 17, 2016      36 comments

I do blog regularly. And I certainly blog about my struggles (ongoing, never ending) with weight maintenance. I'm actually embarrassed by how tough it is, and how it seldom seems to get easier, and how when it DOES seem to get easier that's ve... Read more
MAINtenance: Seven Spark Years
Saturday, July 16, 2016      35 comments

How nice to receive congrats and goodies yesterday on seven years of Spark maintenance! I joined Spark in 2009. I'd taken most of the weight off in 2000-2001 down from 240ish to 150ish, but in 2009 blipped up about 20 pounds: pity party pounds... Read more
