Daisy and I just got in from a very nice winter walk. It's been close to a week since we've been able to go. The temps have been too low and the wind too strong - and a couple days last week it snowed. It was 23 degrees when we went, almost n... Read more

Happy Sunday dear friends. I have just finished 45 minutes of Root Yoga. Since joining my gym in 2017 I have taken a yoga class at least once a week, until now. Even though Lifetime has posted dozens of workouts reflecting the classes tha... Read more

Today was absolutely the best day I've had in months! The weather was just exactly how I like it - on the cooler side, partly sunny with a nice breeze. I had to close a few windows because of the chill. I started the day with a longer wal... Read more

It's been over 3 months since I've posted a blog. I think about it often but have just not done it. Seems there's a lot of that going on in my home these days. I am deeply disturbed by what's going on in our country these days, especially whe... Read more

Hello all you wonderful Spark Friends. I hope you are managing in these very uncertain times. I have to admit, my very favorite day is a day that I don't have to go anywhere so this whole idea of sheltering-at-home is not too difficult for me.... Read more

Eight days ago I celebrated my 70th birthday. My birthday has always been challenging because it comes 3 days after Christmas and I am usually exhausted. When my children were young I was almost always sick as well. My mother tried to make it... Read more

Hello dear Spark Friends. I've been MIA for awhile. I just don't know where the time goes. Every day I have so many "to do's" on my Spark Coach and most days there are boxes left unchecked. What I love about this, however, is that I can add ... Read more

Yesterday my husband and I got up early (for us) and hit the road for Oacoma, South Dakota to attend the wedding of my oldest cousin's first granddaughter, who's mother was my Godchild. This is the first trip we've taken since my husband had be... Read more

Wednesday, September 11, 2019      15 comments

I can't believe the time has passed so quickly. My husband's surgery was just over 2 months ago and it's been about that long since I've written a blog. Whatever have I been doing these past weeks and where does the time go? Does anyone else... Read more

When things start to happen, they happen! Tom called me this morning just after 7 am - Daisy and I were heading out for our walk. The doctor had already been there and as soon as he had his breakfast the nurse was going to start the preparatio... Read more
And now it's Tuesday

Surgery went well although it took longer than she anticipated because things were a little worse than expected. I suppose that happens a lot. They can't really know what's inside until they open things up and look. The waiting was endless bu... Read more

My DH is preparing for his surgery later today. We have about an hour before we need to leave home. I have to admit, I'm a bit anxious about all this. But yesterday we learned that my step-son will be at the hospital with me and he is bringin... Read more

Life is getting better every day and I am so very pleased to be able to say that. The very charming Speech Therapist came 3 times - each time encouraging my husband to try and eat more things. Today we are having hamburgers with french fries -... Read more
