What Happened to Spark Mail?
Tuesday, June 17, 2014
I checked out my last blog today and was surprised to see three readers' comments! Wow! It used to be that one was notified by Spark e-mail if there was a comment on your blog, but I received none. So thanks to those who responded; I will be more vigilant about checking in the future.
Thanks also for the encouragement on my new diet plan. I completed one week and lost two pounds...two or three more to go. Now I am substituting a few things, such as a whole grain waffle instead of a half a bagel or dry cereal in place of oatmeal (although there's nothing wrong with oatmeal)! I learned through Weight Watchers and other plans that it's all right to substitute. And yes, I always do some kind of exercise even if it's just walking the dogs in the late afternoon. Yesterday I did 20 minutes of laps in the pool. Not enough, but better than nothing to be sure. Molly, the chocolate lab, loves to swim, so she usually joins me after awhile. Mickey, the other dog, just stands on the sidelines and barks at her. He and water do not mix!
I notice that many of you write your blogs at the end of the day about your day's activities, but I find that morning works best for me. So I guess I'll be recapping the previous day. I remember from my America Lit studies that Henry David Thoreau loved the morning and the bright newness of everything. I'll have to look up his exact quote. I think it was pretty inspiring.
Another beautiful day gearing up...it's really summer, finally. Yay!
