If I wasn't so lazy (mmm, well, mebbe more like 'not terribly talented in this particular mindset,' lol) I'd write a parody to the tune of 'Downtown.' Ah well. If anybody does, call my attention to it - I'm sure it'd be fun!
We've had rain ... Read more
--bleh. Tonight was the annual Eurovision contest. (You Europeans, and even the Aussies, probably know what I'm talking about. North and South Americans... mebbe not. Suffice it to say it's a marathon song competition.)

You don't have to be a mother to identify with what I'm about to say. Somewhere in your life there will have been a child, if not ... Read more
...things are definitely better. We're not out of the woods, but at least there's a brighter side. There's always hope.
Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts, prayers, and encouraging comments. You're wonderful people, you Sparklers, ... Read more
...and probably deeper in debt. Anyone else remember the old Tennessee Ernie Ford song?
I spent a lot of time - TOO much time - on the computer today. I've gotten so wrapped up in the genealogy research. Himself gave me a gift subscription ... Read more
Your comments are so heartening - family, friends, fellow Sparklers, you have all really put me on top of the world. Thank you so very much!
Short blog tonight, but another little 'baby step' to improvement: this morning I got on the WiiFit... Read more
I know. I'm wordy. I've been the despair of more editors than I can count - I once made one cry, because I just could not edit my pieces to fit the space allotted. Ah well.
Back in December, I posted a sort-of one-year blog.

--there's a thunderstorm. We don't get them very often, thank goodness, but I do not enjoy them at all. I'm as twitchy as a cat in a roomful of rocking chairs.
I grew up in a small, very sheltered valley, where thunder and lightning happene... Read more
As I'd said earlier, next week is the last Senior Fitness class. Today went well - the exercise portion was set up with 'stations,' and we have even more variety now than we did at the outset. The presentation was about osteoporosis and arthriti... Read more
Maybe not on the side, exactly. More like front and center.
First, a few photos (and comments - when do I ever miss the chance to editorialize?) from the visit to George the other day.
I've described and taken pictures of the small WWI... Read more
--o'mice and Kaseys, lol.
I have two, count 'em, two minutes till my bedtime. Yes, it's self-imposed, but it's nearly as inviolable as logging my daily nutrition.
I sorted thru the last of the clothes I had packed away - there's anothe... Read more
I packed up a little picnic lunch and we left the house about noon - and didn't get back till 7! We went over to one of the National Trust sites, Tatton Park, and spent the day wandering around the gardens. We've been there before, several times... Read more
Did it ever! First was the grocery store. Did I mention yesterday was a holiday in the UK? Nobody seems to know WHY it's a holiday. It's the first Monday in May, which is a 'bank holiday.' Beats me. Nothing to do with the royal wedding - that is... Read more
Wasn't that an old McCartney song? I could look it up, but I'm too lazy to do that, lol...
Spent the morning making the house look unlived-in: beds all made up, dirty clothes put in the hamper, clean towels out on the towel racks, dirty dis... Read more
