That Was the Week That Was
Saturday, January 26, 2013      1 comments

Remember that old TV show from the seventies, I think? It was an ironic, comedic rundown of the events that had occurred that week. My week that just ended was not one of the most memorable. In fact, it was pretty bad. It started Sunday wi... Read more
Holiday Time
Sunday, December 09, 2012      1 comments

Random thoughts-- It's time to drag the (imitation) Christmas tree from the upstairs room outside and pick a spot where it will be easily visible both inside and outside. I'll have an early Christmas celebration this year since I am leaving... Read more
Yesterday and Today
Friday, December 07, 2012      1 comments

Yesterday, I-- Yesterday I: --let Pumpkin, the white, orange and black calico, in the house for a bit and Molly, the rambunctious lab, kept looking for her even after I put her in the shed for the night. Silly Molly kept running upstairs thi... Read more
Scheduling Exercise
Wednesday, August 15, 2012      0 comments

I've noticed, thanks to tracking, that I've slacked off on my exercise lately. So tomorrow I will try to fit it in my schedule. Here goes: Morning--Talk with contractor and plumber; work on newsletter as time permits 10 a.m.: leave for... Read more
End of a Long Week
Friday, August 10, 2012      0 comments

It's Friday of the long week in which I have out of town visitors--daughter, son-in-law and their three children (my grandkids, of course). It's lovely to have them here but frankly I am getting a little weary of preparing banquet-size meals. No... Read more
Nostalgic Weekend
Monday, June 25, 2012      0 comments

We spent the weekend at my annual sorority reunion at Penn State University, my beloved alma mater. I know the university has received a lot of bad press lately because of the Jerry Sandusky case, but I believe the whole tawdry scenario was... Read more
A Super Exercise Day!
Monday, June 11, 2012      2 comments

I meant to write this blog a few days ago, but I guess I was too tired! Just wanted to note that on Friday I "multi-tasked" with exercise--first, planting flowers along the pool walk, for about an hour; then moving furniture upstairs for ab... Read more
Time, that Relentless Thief
Monday, March 26, 2012      1 comments

Time is a curious thing. It's there no matter what we do with it. Every day has 24 hours, which will pass if we stay in bed all day or if we multi-task with myriad activities. The sad truth is, the next day will come, relentlessly followed by an... Read more
Books, Weather, and Time
Thursday, March 08, 2012      2 comments

We're in a strange juxtaposition of winter and spring--the weather seems as if it doesn't know what to do. Today will be close to 70 but tomorrow it's back to the 40's. I usually don't like to hurry time along, as we have too little of it, but I... Read more
What is a sports fan?
Thursday, March 01, 2012      0 comments

Missed blogging last night--too busy trying to put up new curtains and then got hung up on the Sixers game--it was close all the way through but alas, they lost. Being a sports fan is a nebulous thing. You can't just decide some day that yo... Read more
Dinner Tonight--a success!
Tuesday, February 28, 2012      2 comments

OK, I usually don't brag, but tonight's dinner was really good. It was simple--just salad,salmon and green beans and applesauce --but it was one of those times when everything worked. The salmon (wild) was seasoned simply, just sea salt and... Read more
Meanderings...on TV
Monday, February 27, 2012      1 comments

I'm in the midst of my Monday night viewing routine --watching "Hoarders," a guilty pleasure, and "Smash," a new serial /musical on NBC. The music is good and the story not bad. It reminds me a little of "A Chorus Line" because it's about a bu... Read more
The Rigors of Aging
Sunday, February 26, 2012      1 comments

My husband's (guess I should refer to him as the Spark speak DH) brother recently had an accident in which he broke his pelvis. He was in the hospital for awhile, then rehab and then back to the assisted living place where he has been for about... Read more
Daily Blogger?
Saturday, February 25, 2012      2 comments

I made a new resolution today--I'm going to try to write a blog daily, instead of just once in awhile. It's good to keep in writing shape (along with the physical) and perhaps I'll draw a few more Spark friends. First of all, a word about m... Read more
A Lazy Saturday
Saturday, January 21, 2012      1 comments

We woke up to a bit of snow this Saturday morning. An inch or two is all...but it does pose a few problems for picking up my now-repaired car. Will have to wait until the roads clear up a little more, probably around noon. Seems like a good... Read more
