12-31-19 I am so happy DH is getting treatment he needs. Passing 'stones'. Yesterday I went for a lovely hike & get my hair cut, had a BLAST. Taking care of me, is so important! Sometimes I forget, when there is extreme chaos. I'm working on it, though! 2020 feels, brighter & more loving, than ever! Please revisit & comment on my blog journal dated 10-16-19 it goes through today, 12-31-19 Your involvement in my life REALLY makes a BIG difference, I thank you, each & everyone!!!! I'm 'here' for you, too! We CAN do this thing called health, right?

emoticon 12-21-19 What do you do with all your OLD stuff? I have wedding photos of my Mom's second (she was married 3 times & she doesn't want them now, either) wedding. I was about 14. I did remove them from the big books & made a small pile for them. Recycled the rest.

I JUST recently had our wedding (1975) photos put onto a dvd. But I kept the actual photos. I find it hard to let go of things that have an emotional tugging on my heart strings. I have 2 storage units 1 state away that have EVERY photo I have ever taken or given to me, since my birth & many other things, mainly marionettes & props. So what to do with all of that? We are taught to "BE HERE NOW". That doesn't fly with our stuff, right? I whittle it out every time I visit, but YIKES! Also, we have ALOT of things in our home, that I go through & give to Good Will, if we don't EVER use it or don't have emotional attachment to. ANY thoughts for all of us from you, would be of great help! emoticon

emoticon 12-5-19 So we DID buy several things from the BIG sales. New 'smart' tv with sound bar; new security cameras, (i'm old school, I use a broom stick in windows, LOL!) my NEW iPhone 8, picking it up today.... hope 'they' can transfer everything from my iPhone 4. (It is literally falling apart in my hands!); DH needed to fix & get a new pool motor; AND his chair lift had to get fixed yesterday. A new RING door bell; Not sure we are going to San Diego for Christmas or not. VERY expensive weekend. (Used some of our savings) My favorite vacuum broke it's belt... so today I will go to a vacuum cleaner 'guy' to get fixed & buy extra belts. To say we moved ALLOT of things is an understatement! DH has lived here since 1992, I moved in 2010. I have been cleaning & working & getting it all together. Staring to look beautiful. SO very uncluttered & SPACE to breath again! His old stereo speakers out, they were 6 feet tall, monsters.

I'm walking in the Las Vegas Santa 5k, emoticon THIS Saturday, my 11th year. They have been doing it for 15. It is for charity. Picking up my bag, today. AND new PHONE, SO excited!!!! I'm flying, love you, thx for reading! I'll be walking a marionette, too!

. (in process photo, we donated so much, felt great!)

emoticon 11-30-19 I'm feeling discombobulated today. We are re-doing our living/den/main room. Started pulling things out, yesterday. I COULD NOT live in a house that is being renovated. TOO much clutter ALL over the place! But I KNOW it will be great when it is all done! emoticon emoticon NOVEMBER! You were good to me, emoticon



(unexpected thanksgiving dinner from Denny's. Too flooded to drive to event. We were happy for it, it was pretty good!)

End of year financials &&&& for our clients. Thanks for reading!

OUR WEATHER HAS BEEN WEIRD TO SAY THE LEAST, TOO! down to 40 emoticon or less at night & highs of 78 to 80! emoticon Too cold to swim, though, REALLY miss it! Last week was VERY cold. My plants & palm trees haven't a clue what to do. We can only water 1 day a week. So I've been hand watering here & there! My Eyes, great again! We've been working on our wills & DH trust. Strange to do & think about, but I don't want others to have to deal with all these things! THX! Love you all! emoticon emoticon

emoticon AND continuing: 10-26-19 Yesterday I volunteered & performed at the Nature Preserve. I used 3 marionettes to 'greet', they call me an Ambassador, I like that! There were about 500 people that came to the event. The marionettes said hi to most of them. 3 hours of REALLY moving. I had the energy to do it, because of my 're-'boot'. Feeling FABULOUS! emoticon The good thing is I am continuing my goal! This is Chris idea from THE SPARK. emoticon 80-100% days. IF you haven't read this book, get it, he is AMAZING about HOW SP started & how it works! I'm sure it's on eBay. emoticon I am a "Pygmy Blue Butterfly", VERY rare & only live in my area of the world! emoticon

emoticon 8-28-19 Another day of over 100. But I'm learning to adapt! I've turned into a VERY early morning person. Always have been, but now, just before sunrise, so I can get all my fun exercise in!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

DH had to go to VA ER yesterday, he was dizzy for a few days. emoticon They gave him every test in the book. He can out VERY healthy. emoticon Turns out a slight case of vertigo emoticon .VERY common in people over 60. Doing GREAT today, praise GOD! I'm not sure I could handle too much more with all his conditions. The VA helps us so much! Preventive actions is what I believe to do, for health. SP taught me this! emoticon Let's continue to support each other in our health goals! emoticon Love to you, all! emoticon

emoticon 8-2-19 Today has been fabulous, so far! Walked LUCY & swam before heat hits, suppose to be 107, not sure it will make it. I started the day out with a fresh peach & 1 small fresh apricot. So breakfast was my homemade Chicken soup, poolside. I am SO blessed to be living this AMAZING life! Tonight is date night, so glad to not have very many calories. My soup is a perfect BALANCE for me! emoticon

I have been on SP DAILY for 2695 days. I prayed to find 'something' that could help me get a hold of my health, this site came up 3 minutes after asking for the help. There are MANY days I only come here to log in & track my goals. Sometimes only 2 minutes a day. BUT it does help me find balance in my life. I am NOT on any other 'social' site. I have learned through SP, it is very different for each 1 of us. For me it is 'baby' steps. & yes, I am about 20# over what I was, but I have still kept off 35#. When I get 'real' about my issues I know I will get back to goal. But I feel GREAT & am VERY active.

I'm excited, tomorrow I get to perform at the Nature Preserve emoticon . I volunteer my services. I just signed up for another year! emoticon (3 years total so far! emoticon ) I LOVE the audiences, they come to learn. These shows help me stay 'rehearsed' with my marionettes AND I get ALLOT of exercise loading & performing & unloading. emoticon I perform about 8 times a year there. Have fun everyone! & I will too!

(Mama Beaver, my Mom made, she's 'on' tomorrow)

emoticon 7-27-19 Up 5:00 am. Today I have hiked for 2 hours at nature preserve, (trying to stay strong for the Santa 5K, in December), walked LUCY; swam for 30 minutes; house work; helped the gardeners; worked a little & ready for the day. It is 10:30 am & 96 degrees! I HAVE to go out early, OR I will miss my opportunity to be outside at all. I do not like being cooped in! Another day to be inside as the heat picks up. I hear there are weather issues for ALL of you, too! Stay safe & hydrated! emoticon & I will too!

emoticon 7-20-19 Yep! I got up at 3:30 am to go see the beavers emoticon on a nature walk. We saw 3 of them, HUGE! About 40-45 pounds each. Nice being up before sunrise emoticon & hearing the wildlife. emoticon It was only 85 degrees! It's 102 now @ 1pm. I walked about 4 miles, tiptoeing, but I had a blast. Came home & walked Lucy pup, emoticon then swam for about 30 minutes. emoticon I still feel like I need more exercise. IF so it will take place inside, our lovely home. emoticon It's been an amazing weekend so far! I am SO grateful for my life! Here are a few photos: Have a great weekend, wish you ALL could have come with us!

I wrote a new blog today, "I am so grateful for my amazing life!" check it out if you want! Here's some of it:

emoticon 6-27-19 Today is '1 of those days". emoticon A day I am SO grateful for my amazing life! emoticon I woke up when I wanted, hugged my DH emoticon the man of my dreams even after 50 years; walked our darling doggie emoticon , Lucy in the just cleaned park, with sprinklers on for us to play in; emoticon sat on our paradise deck, by the pool emoticon & had coffee & raspberry yogurt with walnuts; emoticon swam about 30 minutes; emoticon . emoticon I call this success. Success is when you get to do what you want to do, when you want to do it, with the finances to back you up. My goodness, I am happy to be alive, right now. Who wouldn't be? emoticon (Yes! I DO have bad times, but 75% of my life is just to my choosing! I am SO happy I thought LONG & HARD before I shared this SP blog, I know so many of you are having a hard time. BUT we can help each other, either way, right?) emoticon It has changed my life, forever! (On this my 2659 day of sparking + I received 100 bonus points for spinning the wheel today! emoticon How about you? emoticon

emoticon 6-25-19 6 months till Christmas! emoticon emoticon Today has been a VERY busy day, getting everything done before the heat hits. 102 today in the SW! emoticon Walking LUCY, emoticon laundry, working etc. emoticon emoticon Watering several outside plants that can't handle the heat & wind all the time. I'll do Pilates inside today emoticon . The heat hits us too. Afternoons are rest time. DH emoticon gets up early, too & gets to work, (we work at home) about 5:30 am. I am VERY careful not to use a lot of water. Couldn't swim, too many chemicals in the pool, today, only. It had turned green with all the allege. Pool guy, fixed that! (& to think I pay $20 for 'green' allege, wheatgrass, spiralina drink to add to our smoothies! emoticon )

My Mom had a strange 'episode' yesterday. We think it was from not drinking enough water. Dizzy. emoticon She's fine now. The heat hit her 2 days ago AND her electric went out. It's back on. I'm planning another fun outing with her, in August. I use to only see her 2 times a year. She lives 5 hours away & I can't fly to her, 2.5 from airport for her. Anyway, I'm trying to afford to see her 4 times a year. We email, daily & are on the phone several times a week. I also send her "Play" packages. She is SO fun & doesn't get out much. I include coloring books, stickers &&&&. She is SO creative, a piece of plain paper is perfect for her! I just want to help her stay that way! She's amazing! emoticon Still teaches & writes books.

Happy healthy Tuesday, everyone! Stay safe!!!!! emoticon


About 13 years ago I grew theses sunflowers for these photos! Won award for the backwards 1! Thought you would like to see them!

emoticon 5-20-19 I had the most MAGICAL visit with my Mom (90 yrs.). I traveled to her, 5 hours away & then we went 3 hours to a BIG city. I took us for pedicures, our first time together. Maximum fun! We spent time with our family, brunch at a 5 star resort! Delicious & healthy! Our great-niece was in a stage play of LITTLE MERMAID. REALLY fun trip! Also got some hiking in with her by creek side, she sat on bench out under sycamore trees. I did REALLY well with eating choices & got ALLOT of walking in! Also a couple of days at a B & B alone, being 'Me". I'm rejuvenated & ready to go! emoticon emoticon

BURR! emoticon It is melted already! But it closed our main highway into & out of town. Lot's of tourists come to visit for holidays! emoticon

emoticon Yesterday I went for a little walk at my favorite nature preserve! Also attended a workshop for Volunteers. 2.5 hours of fun learning about my favorite place on earth! I'm SOOOOOOO lucky to live so close AND be apart of the very beginning of the next HUGE expansion. The wild life IS coming & doing what it the park was designed to do. Especially the birds! Funding is starting, also through a "FRIENDS" group. Stared in January! emoticon

(This is a poster for the bird event coming up. Some have seen before, but too pretty not to share!)

The following is a sample from my UPDATED fun current blog, dated 1-2-19 Please read & comment in there! THX!
emoticon 2-12-19 I have had 2 knee problems, last year 1 from jumping emoticon in Zumba. (6 months before I could 'really' walk or get up off the floor for Sheppard Pilates again emoticon ) & this week the other knee 'popped' & leg pain was the result. (it's only been a week & I am SO much better! emoticon ) I have been healing from finding a video, my SP special friend IAMJETTA, recommended. emoticon It is a You Tube video, I use everyday, it helps my knees. I don't know how to 'link' it, but here is the title:

CURE KNEE PAIN. MASTER CHIEN YI LIN. FOUNDER OF SPRING FOREST QI GONG.
I keep the link on my desk top & watch it many times a month. But I know how it works so I do it on my own. This simple 2+ minutes has helped me more than anything! I hope it helps you, too! I am positive if I had learned about this power point, sooner, last year, I would have been healed faster.

I am SO very blessed & lucky to have found it. Another way SP has helped me SO much. While I was healing I used SP NICOLE's 12 minute seated core, workout. Still use it to stretch. It is fabulous! My SP friends mean the world to me! THANK YOU, for being apart of my amazing life. YOU make me a better, healthier woman! I appreciate each & EVERY 1 of you!

emoticon After reading AMETHYSTSTAR blog she inspired me to write:
2-7-19 I made a commitment to myself. I will Spark EVERY day, no matter what. I had prayed to find an answer to my troubles. Weight wise, especially. Then 5 minutes later I learned about SP. An answer to my prayers! I have done MANY things to keep this streak going. Today is my 2,519 day of SP, playing with this site. Even a spin that didn't take didn't change me! At the bottom of our SP page, we get 25 points for every 30 days BEING ACTIVE ON THE SITE. That is where I get this number! I feel SP changed my life. I'm here for as long as I can type, LOL! Chris's book, THE SPARK, emoticon is my connection! (I'm not on any other 'social' websites) Together we can do this. We CAN be healthier & stronger & continually learn & grow & support each other. THX for YOUR friendship, knowledge & sharing!

emoticon 1-17-19 SP helps me stay focused on my true heart goals. My BIGGEST 1 is to 'vibrate' joy & happiness. It is sometimes hard to do, but I AM learning to re-focus when something 'gets to me'. We are ALL so blessed & lucky to have this site. It is my only social website. I try to keep my time down to 1/2 an hour a day. I'd rather be walking, dancing & taking care of our businesses. THX for playing with me/us. My 'friends' on SP helps me SO much & I feel GREAT that I can help others, too. Check out my SPage if you get a chance.... it's fun & pretty! emoticon emoticon emoticon Rain again, today! YEAH!!!!! Made green drinks & look forward to having taco salad for dinner! emoticon Also, re-started my Pilates DVD, baby steps! emoticon

emoticon 1-12-19 Today I get to hike with a group, at Wetlands. It's a little cold for me, so I'll bundle up. It's 45 right now! My body is use to 80! Should be fun, though. I'll be in areas I've never been before! Photos from past hikes!

emoticon 1-9-19 I wore 'MY CHRISTMAS PRESENT TO ME" (team) It is so darling & fits perfectly! I wore it on my trip to celebrate at Disneyland with my 90 yr old Mom (11-14, Mickey Mouse was 90 on 11-18) & forever friend! (Our trip was Jan 4-9, 2019) emoticon emoticon

Me in mirror

Actual top, photo. I bought it just before Thanksgiving & hung it up & it helped me keep "real" during the holidays! I only gained 1# & have already released it! emoticon

With Mom, she does not usually need a wheel chair, but for the miles we walked, she did!

(Mom's walking stick has a stuffed Minnie Mouse on it. Nancy is holding it, too cute, right? Hope you can see it! Many people commented on it, Mom made it that way!)

emoticon 12-10-18 My performance emoticon was so fun! Children full of joy! emoticon It is SO worth it to me to volunteer my talent to the nature preserve emoticon . I started this when I joined SP.... Chris emoticon suggested volunteering & I do just that! Every other month, sometimes more! emoticon I am SO blessed!

(side view of stage)

(This little girl came up to me & wanted a hug, after asking her parents, I did. She told me I was her new BFF, plus a BILLION FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF! Made my day!)

( I always have a number in the show, the children get to work 1 marionette)

(after the show, we have a craft ready for the kids, snowflakes, this time!)

(close up of a darling snowflake!)
