I've only heard of 'pulling' for gums. I put a little coconut oil on my finger & 'pull' it onto my front teeth, down, not up at all. & just let it sit there. About 10 minutes. It would be SO MUCH worse if I haven't been doing that!

emoticon 2-15-2021 Yesterday was very special! DH & I had Olive Garden, he picked up the meal. As no going inside for us, yet. It was VERY busy, a 3 hour wait. I was hungry, waiting, so had a couple of hard boiled eggs & 1/4 avocado. Dinner was salad & chicken Parmesan. We split a tiramisu. I have enough left over for 2 more meals! DH too! Lot's of food. delicious!

emoticon Back to work & play, today! Tomorrow starts a new crown. emoticon emoticon 2 part process. It has never bothered me, but the new dentist wants to do it, just in case. (It already has a root canal in it. My old dentist didn't get to the crown. I couldn't afford it, then! 2020) medicare paying for A LOT this year, so taking advantage of it.

emoticon Walking LUCY, & picking up from the 60 MPH winds. The pool is a wreck! WOW! Happy we were ok! Have a great day! emoticon

70 degrees here, I'm off to play in it!

2-10-21 My new hygienist DID say I might need to have the 2 crowns in very front teeth replaced, (They are 21 years old) emoticon The gums have receded up & we can see the under crown, looks dark. They are in great shape. BUT looks wise not so good. IF I could figure out HOW to get my gums to grow back down, I would do it in a minute!!!! Anyone know how? I'll think about it. It might be a good time to do it, as it is a 2 time process over 2 weeks. Since I am under a mask & not performing.....

As you can tell, I am REALLY about keeping my teeth! I have a few filling from 1975, NO kidding! BUT finding this new dentist has been a God send! emoticon OK, I'm off my soap box! Have a fabulous day, everyone! Keep smiling! emoticon

DH can't walk very well. So our outings are very rare, together!


emoticon 1-30-21 emoticon I've been on a TURKEY SOUP 'kick' for breakfast. I make it myself, of course. A complete meal in a mug! (6+ different types of veggies, Brown rice noodles, yams etc. Sometimes even sliced apple bites.) Crunchy baked snow peas for crackers. (They are usually used as salad toppers) I make a HUGE batch, LUCY emoticon gets her own without spices. Then I put cooled soup into a single serving big mug and then pour into a small freezer bag, flatten out label & freeze. We have very little space in freezer. I pull out the day before, defrost & put back into mug. Heat & eat! YUMMY! & SO healthy for me to start the day! emoticon A little handy hint from SPARKLING!

emoticon I am so glad to say, LUCY is doing MUCH better, back on the original PREVIOX, medication. We took her off for 1 week, vet said not good for her kidneys. BUT she was not able to even get up to play! Now, 2 days later & she a teenager again! I wonder what herb or foods, are GOOD for the kidneys. IF you know, please let me know, too! THX!

Hope your are all doing GREAT! You mean the world to me! Your support has gotten me through the pandemic, NO KIDDING! I am off to walk LUCY & then go to nature Preserve for a hike! emoticon I hope I inspire you, too!

(Lucy on 'her' deck this morning)

emoticon 1-19-2021 I make our LUCY chicken soup. She is 16 yrs. now & getting harder for her to chew. I have to be careful, she gets very loose stool if I give her to many veggies. I make a huge pot for all of us, take her's out, then add the spices for us. Works for us! emoticon I'm off to hug her! emoticon We took her out for an adventure, yesterday. I had to pick her up to get her into the car, but she had a BLAST smelling new areas! We all loved getting out. DH took his scooter & I of course walked. We haven't been out together as a family for about 2 years. It felt GREAT to be together sharing nature! We had planned to go to a very special park, in our town, but streets were closed. So up the mountain we went! SO BEAUTIFUL! Have a fabulous Tuesday & I will too! Off to Pilates, laundry, vacuuming, cleaning, etc.! I love our home & am VERY blessed to have it! emoticon

Yes! Yummy! My go to food! Sorry about your streak.... I don't like it when it happens!

emoticon 1-18-2021 Today is a BIG day for DH & I. He is taking off work & we are taking our sweet LUCY dog, to a nature area. We haven't been there in years. LUCY is having a hard time moving. (DH too, he will bring his scooter) & we will see peacocks, running wild. SO pretty!

emoticon Also, today is my Fairy God Daughter's 10 BDay. She is like the child I never had! Plus MLK celebrations all over the USA. He helped us SO much! Cary Grant BDay today too, if he was still alive. (He was a fan of ours, I performed for him & his family several times)

I'm off to it. Be happy & spread the joy & I will too! emoticon emoticon

(Beautiful)

emoticon 1-15-21 Well the sun is shinning & it's date night, DH doesn't like soup, emoticon so we won't be having that, not sure what, yet. But we will be watching THE GHOST & MRS. MUIR. The original 1943? version. Rex Harrison. (I loved him in Dr. Doolittle, we did MANY songs in our marionette theater from that movie. Also, at our Wedding, WHEN I LOOK IN YOUR EYES, was sung as our song) Anyway, I'm off to walk LUCY & maybe garden a little. It is going up to 70 today & I can hear the hummingbirds playing through my office window! Happy Friday everyone!!!! Hope to hike tomorrow @ nature preserve!

(just for fun!)

emoticon Hope you are doing GREAT!

emoticon 1-12-2021 My homemade Soup is my comfort food too! I even have it for breakfast once in a while. I make it into a complete meal with whole brown rice, included. Yams, squash, celery, carrots, green beans, peas &&& etc. SO many veggies! I use the leftover Costco rotisserie chickens for the base. I love Turkey, but not available all year. (Today is our Green drink day, yummy) Tomorrow I plan on starting the soup process, cooking & de-boning. LUCY loves her version of our soup! THX for the support, I'm a little better today, not so sad. emoticon I'm off to do my SP Nicole 12 minute seated core workout. A GREAT way to start the day, stretched! emoticon We are here for each other & that brings me GREAT comfort, emoticon

Glad you are better!

emoticon 1-8-2021 I am still following Marie Kondo, book, 'The art of tiding up'. Our walk in closet has taken me weeks! (I started 11-7-2020. About 1/2 way there. Some of her concepts won't work for us, mainly the kitchen. (I haven't gotten in there yet) She suggests you take everything off the counters & store in cabinets. This is so it is ALWAYS easy to clean. I get it, but DH sits in a chair to 'cook'. He needs things at hands reach. I AM adapting her ideas into my needs. She also suggested we take everything out of closet, clean the closet, walls & all & then feel each item & if it brings joy, keep it. IF I did that I would not be able to get dressed for days! AND take before & after photos. I didn't think that was necessary, but did it anyway! REALLY helps me! I am taking a section at a time.But she is truly helping me! Our closet feels so nice, sometimes I go in & just sit in it & marvel at the organization! Also, putting the heavy dark things on your left & put colors into a rainbow. With the lightest on the far right. It makes it so pretty! I am ONLY doing my things. DH has allot he will never wear, but that is not up to me. I have enough of my own stuff to go through! Also, our RAYBEE mini trampoline arrived. It's going to take me some time to assemble! I'm not a rocket scientist! They said it is easy to put together.... YIKES! BUT it will hold DH weight & is suppose to be very bouncy. That's what I wanted! It also has a handle. YOUTUBE here I come! So besides work & regular taking care of things, I hope to get back to my closet, soon! LOL!

emoticon 1-3-2021 I hiked yesterday, SO pretty at the nature preserve! Got my 5K in & am down 1# today! emoticon emoticon Today has been ALLOT of housecleaning. 4 loads of laundry, striping the bed, cleaning bathrooms, kitchen, walking Lucy. Now time to SP, it's 2 pm. I'm ready to rest, so computer is my way, right now! How are all of you doing? emoticon

We have to hand water! Most is on a drip system!

emoticon 12-28-2020 My favorite Christmas album is PEGGY LEE's Christmas Carousel. (Remember her?) Our family made marionettes for our shows & used that music. VERY special Christmas memories. I still use the same marionettes (1967+) & her music in my shows. (At least until the pandemic, no performances, right now. I am a 'live' performer. Don't like it on video.) What is your favorite Christmas music? Finding joy & sharing it with everyone, is the way to go for me! Hope your holiday's are blessed! emoticon Happy, healthy end of the year! emoticon emoticon

It's going down to 31 tonight. Happy this plant makes it. It is SO pretty! I've been mailing packages, cards & working. More another time! Merry Christmas & happy holidays! Winter solstice here we come! For the first time in 800 years, Jupiter & Saturn align. WOW! I saw them 'start' the other night.... lovely sky! Look up! emoticon

12-10-2020 The following is my wish for ALL of Spark People land!

“MY WISH”

May your hopes be as high, as high
as the sky’s highest star!

May your Star be as bright,
as bright as your smile!

May your smile be as warm,
as warm as your place in the sun!

May your place in the sun,
bring you peace!

May the peace in your heart,
give you joy in your heart!

May your heart know the meaning of love.

May the love you will know,
when you know your in love,
be forever, and ever as true,
as the love, I have given to you!

(by Meredith Wilson, from the Musical, “Here’s Love” 1963)

This song was a marionette number performed by Mom & Me, for the first time on Dec 12, 2003. Santa Bear, singing & Mrs. Santa Bear (now a beaver, lol). Appearing in “It’s A Very BEAR-y Holiday”. I want to give everyone reading the above words, this powerful wish.
Love from,

It all worked out. He understood our feeling & will try to do better. THX!

emoticon 12-2-2020 A catching you up message:

I've been cleaning & being active like crazy! Working & being with DH, (he thanked me today for making THX G special) ; walking; staying safe; talking with Mom; playing with LUCY dog; getting ready for Saturday's "L. V. Santa 5K," walking for charity, I promote Spark People, this is my 13? year & it is virtual, so I will be at my nature preserve! (I have 3 HUGE bags to donate to them, too!) Processing 18# turkey bones, ( turned it into 3 gallons! )Today I will make soup, for DH & LUCY & me, too! I make it very low fat AND so many veggies & whole grain brown rice noodles. A meal in a bowl. I live on soup! Of course will freeze at least 1/2 of it. ALSO, I've been reading & acting on advise from Marie Kondo's book, SPARK JOY. I finished my shoes! I have about 30 pairs. I use them for walking; hiking; dancing; performing; playing, etc. Since they are so hard for me to find, (I wear size 11.5 narrow) I take VERY good care of them, never wear the same shoes day after day. I rotate then.

THX for reading! I'm flying to walk Lucy, work, Zumba DVD & make soup!!! Have a fabulous day everyone! Please re-read my latest blog, if you have time & comment. It is about 30 days worth. I plan on doing a new 1 soon! ALSO, I joined a new team! I LOVE MY BODY! So fun! Hope to see you there! It is only for the month of December. 2BDYNAMIC brought such joy to all of us, check it out!


(Last year, I am in this photo As well as 5,000 other Santa's!)

(after, so pretty. All cleaned & ready to play!)

11-24-2020 I've been trying to figure out how to communicate with 1 of our 'helpers' in our yards. I keep coming up against a wall. I may have to find someone new. Makes me sad, because I thought he had SO MUCH potential. I've been grooming him for almost 2 years. How do you deal with people, who just don't listen? Even when you keep trying to get through to them. I'm sure I'm not to be the first person with this problem! Finding someone new, will be VERY hard. Just thought I would ask you how you deal with these situations! SP helps me in so many ways! (I reached my small goal, finally! down 2# this week! NOW to stay there!) emoticon emoticon emoticon

(this is a blouse I am wearing for Thanksgiving. I just put swarovski crystals on it. I felt I needed something fun, even though it is 'just us' the virus is really hard on ALL of us, right?)

(Also, wearing my new Zumba hot pink shoes. These are called Zumba 'Energy Boss', I have 3 pair now. I dream about wearing them & love jumping out of bed, because of them!)

emoticon 11-11-2020 Happy Veterans Day! Thx for your service, keeping our country safe! I would not be here without them!!!! Happy Veterans day! My father; my uncle & DH; love you all! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon (AND to Canada, too!)

So I tried to find a pair of slippers in my closet. NOW, what a huge mess! My shoe rack is for high heels, not flat athletic shoes. I looked to buy a new 1, but WAY too much. So I am just going to turn the 1 I have around & the shoes will fall to the wall, instead of on each other! It is hard for me to find shoes that fit, so I don't give them up easily! 11.5 AA narrow! (men's shoes are WAY too wide) I have about 20 pair of them. Sandals & Uggs & Zumba &&&& This is WAY beyond 'tiding' up! Haha!

Celebrating our 45th emoticon emoticon wedding anniversary; Walking Lucy emoticon ; cleaning house; emoticon hair cut emoticon ; &&&&. Also helping 2 friends with pandemic issues. Just working & trying to keep our world emoticon together, as I am sure YOU are! Also, the heater in the pool went out, so hope the pool guy can fix, today. No swim since Sunday, too cold! I am trying to catch up with all of you, too! Hope this message finds you well! You DO mean ALLOT to me!

(with this strange year I dressed up, anyway! Supergirl, Superman's cousin. She was 'born' 1958!)

9-22-2020 Happy Tuesday & Autumn or Spring first! emoticon emoticon
The wind from the Bobcat fire in CA, brings us unhealthy air today, so I will do my DVD's SP Nicole 12 minute seated core workout, LOVE the back stretches & my Zumba DVD! Our LUCY dog is not happy, plus no swimming. SAD face! But my world is fabulous & I am so blessed to have DH, LUCY & our lovely paradise home! I KNOW the air will clear 1 day soon, because the fire fighters are working SO hard. Donate to them, if you can! I did! I grew this sunflower for this photo, in 2003!

9-10-2020 emoticon 3,100 days of Sparking EVERYDAY! emoticon for me! I'm also following Spark Coach, almost 2 weeks now. I listen to THE SPARK on cd's, almost daily since I started, so pretty much know what is being offered, but nice to see in different format! (Have you checked into it? REALLY great) I love this beautiful Thursday!!! Sky clear enough of smoke from another state, to be outside & Swim for over an hour, walk LUCY dog for 35 minutes, garden 120 minutes, housework & now work! 260 minutes, I try for 200, daily. YEAH! PLEASE keep your prayers coming for all of the west coast. Many of our SP friends live there. This is the ONLY area in the world that the massive Red Woods, emoticon live. So many gone. emoticon climate change, for sure! emoticon emoticon

emoticon 9-3-2020 A VERY busy morning! It was only 75 degrees, when we got up! Going up to 111 again this week end. Opened windows, breathe fresh air INSIDE! Yeah! I saw the 'corn' full moon the other night, did you? emoticon Then walked LUCY for 35 minutes emoticon , made a HUGE batch of veggie-chicken soup for us & special for Lucy. Froze some. emoticon That took about an hour. Had lot's to clean before I added to yummy soup! I also swam for an hour emoticon I LOVE our pool, swim almost daily!, then of course had to wash my hair & now to work for DH in my office. I started everything about 5:30 am, it's 1:30, now. Again, WOW!

YIKES! I'm praying for them, too! I think Chris Downie lives north of there. emoticon would help!

Stay safe, my dear SP friends! emoticon

Trust me, if they say it's going to be hot, it will be! So I will be up extra early to walk LUCY pup. If it only goes down to 90, she can't walk. I also played in my back yard. St. Nicolas arrived. I'm using what I have. Lot's of Christmas art sculptures. Oh, Well, at least they won't melt in the heat!!!! Tonight is date night. We are watching the original, WILLY WONKA. (Gene Wilder was a client of ours, great man!) Happy, healthy thoughts, ok? Still praying for new care giver for mom. 2 more weeks to go, emoticon

emoticon emoticon because you ARE!

emoticon 8-12-2020 I find GREAT joy going out in the morning & seeing what has transpired in our yards, over night. I spread wild flower seeds in my 'fairy' garden section, water 2 times a day, keeping moist. I've mulched around with top soil. emoticon The temps here are going up to 112, Saturday. So keeping them moist is a challenge. I've also been putting things from my home, into the yard. Things that can handle it. Crystals, angels, fairies, marble eggs & basket, etc. Still waiting to see sprouts.... but I feel like they are my little babies, tending to them is big fun. I use to be an organic gardener for a company. But with all the travel I was doing, I didn't have time. NOW, we social distancing, I do! I love to see my efforts for my garden 'art'! Plus helps me with stress. I am blessed to have this time to 'play'! Do you create gardens in your home, areas? After I sweat in the garden working, I swim. By the time I go in, the birds come & 'talk' to me. Lot's of humming birds, instead of feeders, I grow flowers & pomegranates for them! This is indeed a VERY precious time for me!

(Fairy wildflower section)

( marble eggs, funny, but pretty as I wait for wildflowers to sprout!)

emoticon 7-23-2020 I buy rotisserie chicken at Costco. $4.99. I can not beat the price! IF I cook 1 it is more costly, cleanup (water waster) & time consuming.. They can be high in sodium. I don't eat the skin. We use in 'taco salads', on sandwiches, chicken salad, plus when almost done I make soup from all the bones & skin, etc. After I cook it, de-bone it & put into refrigerator. I can then, skim of the fat. I make us & our dog, soup, she gets her own, with out any spices. I add SO many veggies & a little whole brown rice, it lasts for many meals. I freeze some too. I can & do live on this stuff! emoticon

emoticon 7-13-2020 I had my hair trimmed today. Feels great! My hair dresser gave me Troll dolls & DVD, for belated B'Day. (he truly is a kid!) I celebrate all month, so perfect timing! Couldn't walk Lucy dog, TOO hot! Only went down to 97 degrees last night! Down from 120. It IS cooling down to 117 today, 35 MPH winds. Yep, we are inside this afternoon! I did get to swim, before my outing, YEAH! emoticon My friend took my Mom out to lunch yesterday, nice she sent me photos. I haven't seen mom since last November, when she turned 91. We are in contact a lot, though. But miss hugging her! She is 5 hours away in a different state. She is such a magical woman, I miss her, terribly. DH & I are SO very happy to be living together in this amazing house with the pool he designed, in 2005.I am VERY blessed! Happy Monday to everyone, stay safe & be thankful for what you do have & I will too!
