emoticon 7-13-2020 I had my hair trimmed today. Feels great! My hair dresser gave me Troll dolls & DVD, for belated B'Day. (he truly is a kid!) I celebrate all month, so perfect timing! Couldn't walk Lucy dog, TOO hot! Only went down to 97 degrees last night! Down from 120. It IS cooling down to 117 today, 35 MPH winds. Yep, we are inside this afternoon! I did get to swim, before my outing, YEAH! emoticon My friend took my Mom out to lunch yesterday, nice she sent me photos. I haven't seen mom since last November, when she turned 91. We are in contact a lot, though. But miss hugging her! She is 5 hours away in a different state. She is such a magical woman, I miss her, terribly. DH & I are SO very happy to be living together in this amazing house with the pool he designed, in 2005.I am VERY blessed! Happy Monday to everyone, stay safe & be thankful for what you do have & I will too!

emoticon 4-17-20 I'm having a lovely, low energy day. I worked VERY hard yesterday, gathering food & doing errands. emoticon Protected of course. It DOES take allot of energy, to 'stay safe' out in the world. emoticon Catching up with DH business on the computer, while listening to classical music. emoticon Today is date night. emoticon So we will play with our favorite TV shows & be together. I'll make BIG salads emoticon & have pizza delivered. emoticon Mine fav is double pineapple & pepperoni. A REAL splurge. (I don't eat much of the crust) Happy, healthy Friday! THX for sharing yourself with all of us! emoticon I'm here for you too! emoticon

(watching Aloe grow in front yard. First time for a flower, ever!)

3-14-2020 We ALL will get through this, world crisis. ! Living in Vegas, it is REALLY hard, as more & more theaters, casinos, public places close down more, today. ALL live shows have been canceled. We are an entertainment destination. REALLY weird, staying home! I am such a social lady, hiking with friends &&&&. Our stores are the same as everyone, almost empty. Amazing the world's focus on this, now, rather than the elections & who is running our country. I think this is the terrorist, we don't need outside influences, right? & the 'trauma' hasn't even really started! I AM so very happy we still have internet. I heard some places have closed it down, for emergency personal only! I know I am going on & on, but YOU help me feel like all will be OK! IF we get no internet, just KNOW I am here sending you ALL good ((((((((vibes)))))) of health & happiness!Keep your sunny side up!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon . Thank you for being 'here'!

2-27-2020 emoticon My car is the FIRST 1 ever we bought new. (before I've owned 3 other cars) We leased it & because we knew EVERY mile, DH took out a loan so we could buy it outright. I'm still driving it! It's paid off (& so is his) & I finally found a FABULOUS mechanic. 2005 Hyundai Tucson. Aspen green, kinda a pretty sea foam color. It now has 96,000 on it. The biggest secret for this car, anyway, is I change the oil & have it checked out EVERY 3,000 no matter what. I KNOW the dealerships say the new cars don't need it that often, but having someone else eyes, changing filters, etc. on it helps me. I live in a desert, my car sleeps outside. Our temps go from 30-119, over the year! It is pre-bells & whistles. Has a tape player & cd! (My shows are on tapes & cd, so I can hear them going to my performance) Not "smart" but gets me to my performances, GREAT! I hand wipe it down inside & out,several times a month & have it cleaned, when it needed it. I am VERY happy with it, it drives me to errands, performances & trips! I am VERY blessed to have found it. I studied for about a year, before I chose this exact style.

emoticon 2-11-2020 Being an artist myself, I love seeing & appreciate everyone's art.
We make the marionettes for my shows, Mom & DH & me & several others over the years. (Starting in 1958) My favorite part is the costuming! (I think of my body as a blank canvas everyday, for what I might wear). It takes us about 9 months to make 1 from scratch. Our 'recipe' = Start with the idea (is it apart of a themed show, Circus, Jungle, Christmas, nature or just performing by it's self as in Barbra Streisand, Carol Burnett or Barry Manilow when we make a STAR, they get a copy, too) ) -sculpt-make cast- pour manikin rubber in cast-pull out & sand & paint & holes for eyes, mouth or anything moving, eyebrows, etc.- same process with hands, legs, feet, anything showing skin- wood bodies- airplane control out of lathed spindles- pad bodies- put 'underwear' over entire body- attach head, hands, legs, feet or make shoes (I have a 1920's Singer leather machine for this) - costume- stringing (I like stringing too, it is like stringing a guitar or other instrument, if a part moves, then it has a string!- It is a long process, but SO worth it! I am more of a performing artist, these days. I have 150 to play with.They are 'camera' ready & get redone about every 2 years depending upon how often they 'work'. Mom & team have made over 5,000 with us. We really don't need to make any more. Her last was JANii, I've shared photos, Joel Osteen and a few others. Mom is teaching about GODDESSES & women's Play shops, now, not performing. Here's a few photos












I'm not sure why I was inspired to share this today. Don't mean to bore you, just I am Slightly Off The Wall! & you all 'feel' like family! emoticon

emoticon 1-14-2020 emoticon emoticon Making crock pot turkey, today! I have butcher cut a frozen turkey up into 1/4, defrost & cook each section, when I'm in the mood. It is in strange shapes, but so yummy. I'll bake yams, too. Salad & broccoli tops it off! I LOVE our crock pot & toaster oven, I can cook complete meals with those 2 items. Although we have a full kitchen. Great for sandwiches & soup, later! Try it, hassle free! Have a healthy day & I will too!

11-7-19 hI!
OUR WEATHER HAS BEEN WEIRD TO SAY THE LEAST, TOO! down to 40 emoticon or less at night & highs of 78 to 80! emoticon Too cold to swim, though, REALLY miss it! Last week was VERY cold. My plants & palm trees haven't a clue what to do. We can only water 1 day a week. So I've been hand watering here & there! My Eyes, great again! We've been working on our wills & DH trust. Strange to do & think about, but I don't want others to have to deal with all these things! THX! Love you all! emoticon emoticon

(this is a top I'm thinking of buying, I REALLY like it, but it is 100% pollyester. Don't like that plastic fabric!)

emoticon AND continuing: 10-26-19 Yesterday I volunteered & performed at the Nature Preserve, NV Day! I used 3 marionettes to 'greet', they call me an Ambassador, I like that! There were about 500 people that came to the event. The marionettes said hi to most of them. 3 hours of REALLY moving. I had the energy to do it, because of my 're-'boot'. Feeling FABULOUS! emoticon The good thing is I am continuing my goal! This is Chris idea from THE SPARK. emoticon 80-100% days. IF you haven't read this book, get it, he is AMAZING about HOW SP started & how it works! I'm sure it's on eBay. emoticon I am a "Pygmy Blue Butterfly", VERY rare & only live in my area of the world! emoticon

I wrote a new blog today, "I am so grateful for my amazing life!" check it out if you want! Here's some of it:

emoticon 6-27-19 Today is '1 of those days". emoticon A day I am SO grateful for my amazing life! emoticon I woke up when I wanted, hugged my DH emoticon the man of my dreams even after 50 years; walked our darling doggie emoticon , Lucy in the just cleaned park, with sprinklers on for us to play in; emoticon sat on our paradise deck, by the pool emoticon & had coffee & raspberry yogurt with walnuts; emoticon swam about 30 minutes; emoticon . emoticon I call this success. Success is when you get to do what you want to do, when you want to do it, with the finances to back you up. My goodness, I am happy to be alive, right now. Who wouldn't be? emoticon (Yes! I DO have bad times, but 75% of my life is just to my choosing! I am SO happy I thought LONG & HARD before I shared this SP blog, I know so many of you are having a hard time. BUT we can help each other, either way, right?) emoticon It has changed my life, forever! (On this my 2659 day of sparking + I received 100 bonus points for spinning the wheel today! emoticon How about you? emoticon

emoticon 6-10-19 It was a fun, relaxing, hiking weekend. Too windy to go swimming. Gonna be HOT tomorrow... a warning in place. emoticon (That means over 106) Up just before dawn to get outside things done. Extra watering, glad for new hoses! Walking LUCY, etc. Then in the house all day, working on computer, etc I REALLY do not like air conditioning. We keep it at 84..... but it goes on all day when temps are over 100. I can't sleep under it. But living here in SW, we NEED it! OK, I'm back to work! Have a great week everyone!

emoticon 5-20-19 I had the most MAGICAL visit with my Mom (90 yrs.). I traveled to her, 5 hours away & then we went 3 hours to a BIG city. I took us for pedicures, our first time together. Maximum fun! We spent time with our family, brunch at a 5 star resort! Delicious & healthy! Our great-niece was in a stage play of LITTLE MERMAID. REALLY fun trip! Also got some hiking in with her by creek side, she sat on bench out under sycamore trees. I did REALLY well with eating choices & got ALLOT of walking in! Also a couple of days at a B & B alone, being 'Me". I'm rejuvenated & ready to go! emoticon emoticon

The following is a sample from my UPDATED fun current blog, dated 1-2-19 Please read & comment in there! THX!
emoticon 2-12-19 I have had 2 knee problems, last year 1 from jumping emoticon in Zumba. (6 months before I could 'really' walk or get up off the floor for Sheppard Pilates again emoticon ) & this week the other knee 'popped' & leg pain was the result. (it's only been a week & I am SO much better! emoticon ) I have been healing from finding a video, my SP special friend IAMJETTA, recommended. emoticon It is a You Tube video, I use everyday, it helps my knees. I don't know how to 'link' it, but here is the title:

CURE KNEE PAIN. MASTER CHIEN YI LIN. FOUNDER OF SPRING FOREST QI GONG.
I keep the link on my desk top & watch it many times a month. But I know how it works so I do it on my own. This simple 2+ minutes has helped me more than anything! I hope it helps you, too! I am positive if I had learned about this power point, sooner, last year, I would have been healed faster.

I am SO very blessed & lucky to have found it. Another way SP has helped me SO much. While I was healing I used SP NICOLE's 12 minute seated core, workout. Still use it to stretch. It is fabulous! My SP friends mean the world to me! THANK YOU, for being apart of my amazing life. YOU make me a better, healthier woman! I appreciate each & EVERY 1 of you!

emoticon After reading AMETHYSTSTAR blog she inspired me to write:
2-7-19 I made a commitment to myself. I will Spark EVERY day, no matter what. I had prayed to find an answer to my troubles. Weight wise, especially. Then 5 minutes later I learned about SP. An answer to my prayers! I have done MANY things to keep this streak going. Today is my 2,519 day of SP, playing with this site. Even a spin that didn't take didn't change me! At the bottom of our SP page, we get 25 points for every 30 days BEING ACTIVE ON THE SITE. That is where I get this number! I feel SP changed my life. I'm here for as long as I can type, LOL! Chris's book, THE SPARK, emoticon is my connection! (I'm not on any other 'social' websites) Together we can do this. We CAN be healthier & stronger & continually learn & grow & support each other. THX for YOUR friendship, knowledge & sharing!

emoticon 11-1-18 Happy All Saints Day! I'm ready for some angel energy!
Last night I dressed up as Lady Unicorn, & handed out candy to the kids. I bought TINY, smaller than mini sized chocolates. I ate only 3 of them & had way more than I needed. I just don't eat candy any more. WTG!
Today my DH surprised me with 3 dozen LARGE red roses! It is our 43 wedding anniversary. What a sweetheart! We have known each other since high school. We are still so in love, kind of most of our lives. We are VERY blessed!!!!! emoticon I truly pray YOU have someone in your life, that feels about you, as my DH feels about me, & vise versa! I'm sharing this message with you, my Spark Family. Thank You for being YOU!

(high school)

(rehearsal dinner) We invited 1,000 people to our reception & most came! We are STILL in contact with MANY of them.

August 2018

emoticon 8-9-18 I finish the 3 book series, THE GUARDIANS, by Nora Roberts.it was SO good I hated to finish, no kidding. It's like a friend we don't see for years..... I'm starting THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES tonight. I haven't read a novel in YEARS, since Harry Potter books. Usually read self help, but it is fun going into someone else's imagination. I have a very good 1, but not as GREAT as my Mom or Uncle. Not sure where they get it, BUT AMAZING people of my family!

I woke up today & I think an Angel tapped me on my shoulder to tell me, I didn't get my car registration renewal in the mail. (I listen to them, truly) It was due, July13. So I went on line, set up an account, went to get it smoged, as required by the state. 89,009 miles! I love my car! My first new one, 2005, DH bought it for me & I do the maintenance. The lady who did the smog test said I could go to a store & use a DMV kiosk. Since I was late, I tried it. It even printed out the new tags! What an amazing world we live in!

I'm back to work, keep hydrated & I will too!

12-23-17 Today my DH & I are giving us the gift of signing up for a gym memberships. My first time! I'm usually an out doors exerciser. But he wants to do this, so today is the day! It will give us a chance to 'workout' together! (HIs back can't go with me on walks etc.) I'm happy he wants to go! Also, I'll be hiking in the Wetlands, as I do on Saturdays. It is 35 degrees, here in this high desert! Christmas blessings to all!



The Santa we made (1979), he is 5' tall & weighs about 30#, Yes! I am strong!


Mrs. Claus Mom made about 1963 or so:

Sorry I've been gone so long. Traveling seeing MY mom, in Nov. The coming home to help DH mom pass over, DH busiest time of the year for business, getting my show ready to perform first time in 20 years!!!!! It's been VERY intense. I love you all & here is my blog for today:

To all of our Spark People family: (Part of my blog, today)

“MY WISH”

May your hopes be as high, as high
as the sky’s highest star!

May your Star be as bright,
as bright as your smile!

May your smile be as warm,
as warm as your place in the sun!

May your place in the sun,
bring you peace!

May the peace in your heart,
give you joy in your heart!

May your heart know the meaning of love.

May the love you will know,
when you know your in love,
be forever, and ever as true,
as the love, I have given to you!

(by Meredith Wilson, from the Musical, “Here’s Love” 1963)

Photos from my show, CHRISTMAS ON STRINGS last Saturday: THE SPARK suggests we volunteer. I chose to volunteer my shows for a nature center. My world has changed SO much seeing the children's eyes light up! I love sharing my talent & keeping in 'performance ready'.


Little girl & her snowflake(we do a craft after show)


Kid's working my Jack-In-Box


My newest, Mama Beaver as Mrs. C. making ginger cookies, Mom made 1976

~NEVER GIVE UP! Because to give up, is like giving in, and to give in, is like quitting and Winners never quit!

I, Paulette, pledge to do everything in my power to become healthier. I will watch the quality and quantity of my food. It will not be easy. I will be tempted. I will not make excuses. BUT, I will stay strong and continue to be focused because I deserve to be skinny and I am worth the work!
