emoticon 12-18-18 We have been having some VERY wonderful holiday experiences emoticon . Dinner & Christmas movies, by our fireplace; DH was honored emoticon for a business he started, 30 years ago. We had the chance to REALLY dress up. emoticon SO fun! Santa photos with LUCY, at Pet smart emoticon , giving love through my marionettes emoticon , helping through donations emoticon , &&&&. Last week I sent my Mom about 30 photos, from this year, my performances, outside beauty, DH, LUCY, etc.. She received them yesterday & said she cried, it made her so happy. She DOES email, but physical photos mean so much to her! She cuts them up & plays with them. She is so sweet. (Really missing DH Mom, she passed last year @ THXgiving, 93, but miss her!) I mailed off several packages yesterday for our family & friends on this side of the US. emoticon Walking in nature emoticon & trying to stay to my food plan. 3 days of over doing it, emoticon although healthy food, still too much. Yesterday I ate on my terms & feels SO wonderful! emoticon I truly hope ALL of our SP community is doing well, during these hectic times emoticon . The ONLY way it works for me is NOT dieting; but eating for my active lifestyle. BABY STEPS, always! emoticon SMALL GOALS COMMITMENT CHALLENGE, team is SO helpful! Check it out! emoticon

emoticon Kisses to all! Check out my newest blog, dated today! Here is a little bit from it!

emoticon 12-3-18 Happy Monday! emoticon Busiest times for me (& I'm sure you, too). Several volunteer marionette performances ( & rehearsals) , the LV Santa 5K, Christmas Parties, hikes & fun, fun, fun. PLUS work emoticon of course! The weather is cold 35 emoticon in evenings & highs of about 55. emoticon My focus is on health, for me AND DH. He is doing ok, back still hurts him, but PT seems to help! I'm still doing all the errands & leg work. But I don't mind, I love him so much & he keeps the business going on his computer. It works for us! "Be the health you want with what you have to work with, & I will too!" a quote by me!



Finish Line of LV Santa 5K 2018, although I really walked about 6 miles! With my Jack-In-The-Box, (he is in my shows, too!)

emoticon 11-1-18 Happy All Saints Day! I'm ready for some angel energy!
Last night I dressed up as Lady Unicorn, & handed out candy to the kids. I bought TINY, smaller than mini sized chocolates. I ate only 3 of them & had way more than I needed. I just don't eat candy any more. WTG!
Today my DH surprised me with 3 dozen LARGE red roses! It is our 43 wedding anniversary. What a sweetheart! We have known each other since high school. We are still so in love, kind of most of our lives. We are VERY blessed!!!!! emoticon I truly pray YOU have someone in your life, that feels about you, as my DH feels about me, & vise versa! I'm sharing this message with you, my Spark Family. Thank You for being YOU!

(high school)

(rehearsal dinner) We invited 1,000 people to our reception & most came! We are STILL in contact with MANY of them.

August 2018

10-4-18 The following is from our founder, Chris Downie- SPARKGUY, please go to his page & cheer him on!: emoticon (this is on HIS Spark page blog, I am just sharing, incase you didn't receive)


Surgery thursday
Wednesday, October 03, 2018
Update that I'm reading your comments thurs morning thanks!!

Hi all

I've thought it ridiculous the Internet makes fun of people for offering thoughts and prayers. Now is my chance to show this by asking for positive thoughts and prayers for my brain tumor surgery thursday! Let me know your general area. I'll take all I can get for this.
Here are more details:

Hi all
I'm on mobile will be short. Yesterday I had a seizure and am in a sf hospital. Thanks to b for being there to save me as a bunch of people called 911. There were zero lasting effects from the seizure which they said is a great sign.

Turns out I have what is almost surely a benign brain tumor that is almost surely not cancerous but is pressing against the brain. Luckily it's in an easy place to remove. So we're doing 5 hour surgery tomorrow at 925am pt to remove it. Should be full recovery. Bites, but grateful for good surgeon and lots of plusses!

Sparkcheers!

emoticon 8-2-18 Everyone! Magical emoticon things are happening for me, right now. It's about a white buffalo. Way back in 2004 I watched 1 being born, they named her STAR. emoticon This was in AZ. She was so amazing, I created a hand puppet, (we usually make marionettes on strings, not many puppets) I call her WHITE BUFFALO MAMA. Photo below, the only 1 I have. She is huge, made of latex. But VERY light weight & sits on my shoulder. I haven't really used her, very much, I created her to be a story teller of the ancient peoples & animals, to tell the children. My marionette shows are all musical emoticon variety, not story based. Lot's of singing & dancing & glitz & glam. Turns out this September, for the first time in that part of the world, I am going on a trip to N. Dakota & will get to see STAR again! They moved back 'home' from AZ to ND. Should be fun! Just a sweet story to share with my SP friends!

How I feel about my progress with SP: This is my latest blog:
7-9-18 I hurt my knee dancing in May emoticon , so couldn't do my usual up & down stairs; Zumba; hiking; Pilates; etc. After joining SP (3-16-12, 2,306 days of continual sparking!) I became a VERY active person! It has been REALLY hard on me, to rest & heal. I have been swimming & walking & performing. I saw some photos from my last performance & couldn't believe how out of toned I am. Actually shocking! So today I am restarting, doing what I CAN for this day, moment by moment. I do feel I am basically starting over, then I remember all the over the bed sit-ups, etc. I have been doing, so I'm trying not to be so hard on myself! SP helps me SO much, "REMEMBER WHO I AM" & what I am not. I am blessed for all of you! Thank you for being apart of my journey; "Be the health you want to be, with what you have to work with, & I will, too!" A quote by me. I'm off to play & work & be grateful for my amazing healthy life! 20# back to goal, emoticon It IS hard sharing this with you, but I KNOW I will be stronger for doing it! emoticon

emoticon 5-31-18 My knee is not hurting, at all! emoticon I have a performance emoticon of my nature emoticon inspired show on Saturday. Not taking ANY chances! SO I worked out with SP Nichole videos emoticon , Seated core & seated cardio. It was only 22 minutes all together, but I am REALLY use to about 200 minutes of exercise a day. So my body was craving, 'something' as a work out. Felt great! emoticon Couldn't take our Dog LUCY emoticon out 30 MPH winds emoticon & 101 degrees.... too much for her. No swimming emoticon , pool getting full of leaves, etc. too, darn. I know it may sound like excuses, but I KNOW how the wind effects the 2 of us. Finding ways to keep my body happy emoticon helps me keep it together & remember to have fun emoticon ! Whatever it takes, right? emoticon Hope you are all doing GREAT! emoticon

Lucy after yesterdays trim & bath!

emoticon 5-30-18 It IS so fun creating a new show, it's been awhile for me. I have about 150 marionettes I can use, so I'm not creating anyone new. But rather using what I have, props etc. I am blessed with SO much, I could open a museum! emoticon Richard Sherman (of the Sherman Brothers, Mary Poppins emoticon , etc.) a friend of our family, has given us permission to use his songs, but that was in the late 1960's so not sure I could do that now! Unless he writes something new & reissues his consent. It is a VERY different world now! A verbal agreement & a hand shake are not enough! emoticon

emoticon 5-24-18 Yesterday was a stellar day for me! A 10! It was a 'normal' day. Putting away veggies & making my own green drink, in 8 servings, then freeze & drink, of course. I had energy all day! Works for me! emoticon Spending time with DH, catching up with work, uploading photos from my AMAZING trip to see my Mom, etc. It was just perfect! I also tried SP Nicoles, seated core workout, still being gentle & healing my knee, (I went upstairs last Saturday & thought it was all healed, but, nope). I FELT great!!!!!

Blueberries, strawberries, bananas, organic greens= tons, pumpkin, non fat Greek yogurt, "Naked" Green drink, Trader Joes green powder, soy protein, almond milk, & any veggies that will chop up. Different amounts of everything, every time. emoticon

Today I wrote the first part of my April blog:
emoticon 4-4-18 Our air is VERY thick with Fruitless Mulberry pollen, I live in a valley.... It is very intense, I wish I could open windows, but air too thick. It covers cars &&&& the tree is BEAUTIFUL, but they can't be planted anymore. Our neighborhood is quite old so we have miles of them! I think that's the problem I am having with tight chest! I just keep deep breathing, inside & wear face mask outside. I can't take Lucy dog out in it, I try to play with her, inside. It is SO pretty, though!

Also, I am celebrating 36 years of a VERY personal, spiritual anniversary, today. emoticon A way of meditating, I am so blessed! emoticon emoticon

3-19-18 emoticon My small goal for this week, is to focus on EVERY bite & enjoy it. Also, get back into drinking 1 full cup of water before I eat anything.... this worked for me in the past, as I do not know when I am full, it just never registers with my brain. (There is an article about this, that some people do not have the enzymes to feel full. I can only go by what I see & know is enough! NO KIDDING!!!) With the hopes my weight will go down, at least 1 pound, from last Fridays, 2# up!!!!





This is what Zumba looks like on my body, I'm up 17# from this photo, working on getting back to this view! emoticon

emoticon 6 years, 2,191 days of Sparking! I went UP a # this week, YIKES! Not what I had planned. Salt & building muscles at gym, clothes fit better, but now I'm 10# above my smallest goal, boo hoo! Thx to SP at least I have the tools to fix it, right? I'm the healthiest I've been in years!!!!! emoticon Tomorrow, for St. Pats day I am taking my White Fox & skating him in the local parade for a few hours, if no rain or wind (20 MPH today)! Now that is energy! He weights about 10#!

Sunny today! Yeah, great day for exercise! Have any of you joined the fun easy challenges, Spark Guy has going? I'm doing 3 total. I love the quickness of it, all! Check them out on HIS SPage!

Today was 9,000 steps, 4 miles & 60 minutes of Zumba. Also, 10 cups water, 11 veggies.... I'm on a roll & off to dinner!

(Last weeks hike in Valley Of Fire, AMAZING place!)

Dec. 13,2017 Sorry I've been gone so long. Traveling seeing MY mom, in Nov. The coming home to help DH mom pass over, DH busiest time of the year for business, getting my show ready to perform first time in 20 years!!!!! It's been VERY intense. I love you all & here is my blog for today:

To all of our Spark People family: (Part of my blog, today)

“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)

Photos from my show, CHRISTMAS ON STRINGS last Saturday: THE SPARK suggests we volunteer. I chose to volunteer my shows for a nature center. My world has changed SO much seeing the children's eyes light up! I love sharing my talent & keeping in 'performance ready'.
