  • Such A Long Weekend

    1/19/2021 3:19:31 PM, by PORTIA70

    I hope all of my Sparkies are doing good. I am doing well, and wanted to get caught back up on things today. I kind of got lazy over the weekend. Problem is that gives me twice to do when the regular week is back. Well, here in Los Angeles the Coronavirus is not looking good. Calif... Read more

  • Rugs!

    1/14/2021 5:03:26 PM, by WOOFERCOALBOY

    I had my all-wool rugs (my bedroom, the guest room, living room, & dining room) picked up for cleaning in July before I went to Michigan for what turned out to be 2 months, told them I'd let them know when I was back to return them. I had 2 calls saying are you ready yet, & no, I wasn't. I wanted to... Read more

  • Fixing the Misstep

    1/13/2021 9:05:30 PM, by HMKITTEN

    It's a new week and I'm putting the misstep of last week behind me. Just because I overate then doesn't mean that I have to continue the trend. I'm headed back down on the scale and I realize now that part, but not all, of the weight gained was water. I'm back down to 218.5 from that high of 221.5 i... Read more

  • Good Morning Sparkies

    1/13/2021 12:51:28 PM, by PORTIA70

    I wanted to check in today, since I forgot to post the last two days. I went grocery shopping Monday and got a bunch of veggies and healthy food. My friend found wheat popcorn. Not sure how I will like it, but will give it a try. Today I am focusing on things I need to catch up on. I someho... Read more

  • Only Cheating Myself

    1/10/2021 8:59:09 PM, by HMKITTEN

    I'm bummed. Ever since I got sick on Tuesday I have been indulging in all things fat and sweet. I made a dessert for myself that I know I can't have large amounts in the house or I eat it all. (In this case flan) I know that the only person in cheating is myself, but somehow my brain thinks that if ... Read more

  • I am Back. 2021 :)

    1/8/2021 6:53:43 PM, by PORTIA70

    I apologize for being gone so long. 2020 what a rough year for all of us, and I needed that time to reflect on so many things in my life. While my reflection is not over, I feel confident in my ability to get things done this year. So I am here to get back on track. One of the new hobbies I... Read more

  • Peace of Mind

    1/7/2021 4:43:44 PM, by WOOFERCOALBOY

    Confession: I am a political junkie; I spent most of yesterday & this morning listening/watching first the Washington Post webcast, then PBS until 11 PM, then MSNBC until 4 AM, then to bed & slept until 11:30. I missed seeing Trump's exhortation to his followers & didn't learn about it until after t... Read more

  • Get the Heck Out of Here 2020!

    12/31/2020 9:22:03 PM, by HMKITTEN

    Let me just say right away that I wish you all a happier, healthier, and just plain better than 2020! I ended the year with the Covid vaccine and only have a slightly sore arm to show for it. Win! And got paid for the time to do it too. Now, onward to other things. Work? Stressful. B... Read more

  • Finding Movement Through...Tea?

    12/26/2020 9:27:28 PM, by HMKITTEN

    That's right. My completely sedentary lifestyle has met a brand new way to find a reason to move: Tea. I drink tea like a fish to water when I am home. Instead of sitting back down to wait for the kettle or sitting when waiting the 3-5 minutes for it to brew I have decided that it is a good time for... Read more

  • Merry Happy Christmas! (in an almost empty house)

    12/25/2020 8:01:06 PM, by HMKITTEN

    Yes, it is that time of year again where we buy all sorts of things we don't need for each other and travel thousands of miles to see said people. Wait. Nix that last part. At least I hope you nixed it. With my father out in South Dakota with my grandparents and my mom working through the week, I de... Read more

  • The story of Self-Care and Carb Overload

    12/23/2020 10:08:50 PM, by HMKITTEN

    Work was insane. If I had any intention of getting in some stairs, that was put down completely. From 11am to 430pm I didn't get one step in. In my chair. Five and a half hours. I didn't move from my desk. Yes, things needed done before tomorrow, but that was at a sacrifice to my well-being. But thi... Read more
