Sunday, August 07, 2016      29 comments

Yesterday I'd gone to the gym (after an egg white omelette breakfast) and then decided to head directly to the local outlet mall. Looking for dark leopard print ankle boots preferably OR in the alternative shoes . . . with my size 10 feet I kn... Read more

Decisions
Saturday, August 06, 2016      19 comments

My (somewhat edited) comment today on a Sparkie friend's page (she's trying to make a business decision): The awful daring of a moment's surrender which an age of prudence can never retract. By this and only this we have existed. (yup, T... Read more
Watering!
Friday, August 05, 2016      18 comments

Front porch planters have been rehydrated . . . no kidding, this is one of the driest summers I can remember. And I've gotta remember to rehydrate me too (yup, coffee counts . . . ). ... Read more
Early Soup!
Thursday, August 04, 2016      17 comments

Had left over soup from Wednesday's batch last week but used up the last bowlful yesterday: and so I got up early and made more . . . . yes, even in hot hot hot weather I still enjoy hot soup (although sometimes I do make a chilled gazpacho etc.... Read more
The Elusive Trivia A Student Award
Wednesday, August 03, 2016      16 comments

Nope, not in July either. I was teetering on the brink, maintaining 90% correct, right up until the end of the month and then whap whap whap whap: a whole series of questions wrong wrong wrong. This month is NOT looking good either -... Read more
At the Beach . . .
Tuesday, August 02, 2016      23 comments

Yesterday I got to the gym AND to the beach (wearing my new bathing suit! checking out tattoos of course in both places) AND to the golf course: nine holes at the very best time of the day, lots of beautiful slanting rays of sunshine illuminatin... Read more
Correction: I DO Have Tattoos!
Monday, August 01, 2016      24 comments

How could I have "forgotten" about them? In 2009, four pinpoint markers for radiation therapy for breast cancer. And I hated them so much when I got them (NO CHOICE, obviously). One of them shows when I'm wearing even a very moderately low cu... Read more
Did You Tattoo??
Sunday, July 31, 2016      20 comments

I don't have any. (And I don't have any piercings. And I don't colour my hair, which is beginning to silver: but after all, I'm 65 years old -- so it's to be expected). However, even though I'm too prissy and too cheap and too vain to ha... Read more
"Everyone is Entitled to Their Opinion"
Saturday, July 30, 2016      18 comments

We hear that expression pretty often. And (ignoring the grammar for a moment), what do you think? Is it true? Not (and yup, I'm fully aware of the irony) in my opinion!! What's an opinion? One definition says an opinion is "a belief or... Read more
After Hillary?
Friday, July 29, 2016      17 comments

My comment on NUMD97's status post, "Hillary!": "OK, if I am allowed to make a political comment from north of the border -- was thrilled by Michelle's speech. If Hillary can succeed Bill, can Michelle succeed Barack please????" And if you... Read more
FQI
Thursday, July 28, 2016      15 comments

My DH is a maniac golfer: truly it is his primary prism through which he views every aspect of life. There's no situation arising in his life which would not benefit from a golf analogy: Tam Ludo Quam Vita (in play as in life). It's those mira... Read more
Advance Rewards
Wednesday, July 27, 2016      21 comments

I've been having an interesting exchange of messages with a Spark Friend about the value of "advance rewards": in this case, gold stars for sticking with the nutrition tracking. My piano teacher used to put stars in my music book when I'd ... Read more
