I am a 3rd generation performing marionette artist. I am learning to live life to it's fullest, no matter what comes my way. My childhood sweetheart & I are still loving each other & the world, since High school! I am Blessed!!!!! I have found Walking our beautiful doggie; & hiking in nature is SO fun! I crave it! Also; Sheppard Pilates, "Walk away the pounds" & Zumba DVD's OR SP Nicole's 12 minute seated core workout; Swimming; & now with pandemic, I garden in our paradise pool area! Bringing in the fairy's & angels & unicorns! Also joined the gym, in January 2018, my PLAY place, just like a kid, again! It is still closed, so I 'play' in our park, on the swings, in the sprinklers, etc. My body now REQUIRES movement! I am a better performer because of Spark People! I thank God, the Angels, AND Spark People, daily for my amazing life! My new quote: "BE THE HEALTH YOU WANT WITH WHAT YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH, & I WILL, TOO!" My new song: GOOD VIBRATIONS, by the Beach Boys. Helps me when I'm 'down'.

My life is taking a new lovely turn! Chris of Spark People suggests we volunteer! As of 2-2018 I am doing that, it is SO special & rewarding, I am performing my marionettes for a local nature center! I love it, so inspiring for me & the amazing audiences! A perfect place for me to grow & focus on goals. They happen about every other month @ my favorite hiking spot using my marionettes to teach about nature! It IS magical! I am so Blessed & grateful for these experiences. I am enjoying watching my life unfold in this way! Meeting new friends & playing with like minded people!

My 'regular' job is helping my DH with his lovely small business. I am learning SO many new things & thrive because of it! His business is BLOOMING!!! Yeah! I love him so much! He is doing much better, as far as walking. Has the perfect PT doctor!

My Goals:
I reached my goal weight (3-16-2013 1 year exactly since I joined SP)! NOW, I am learning how maintain my weight & (almost) doing it, with Spark People!! I am stronger & more vibrant! I am thriving & Chris Downie is helping me be my most beautiful, healthiest, energized, whole self! I want to continue to learn to maintain my weight AND my health, easily & with lot's of FUN!! I choose to be an example of what good health looks like! I have been yo-yoing with about 20# now for almost 3 years, I am sort of ok with it & once I am not, I KNOW I will get back to goal & stay there! (Body stresses made it impossible to keep up my paces) But I am SO healthy & confident, I am jumping for joy!


My Program:
Following SparkPeople & my own inner good judgement! I have learned to keep my healthy lifestyle, together, EVEN under the MOST stress! I love moving & creating fun & joy where ever I go! Green drinks & energizing foods! I find stress happens in our worlds, all the time. It appears when we least expect it! It is how we handle every single decission, 1 at a time, that creates the out come that is our life. SP has helped me create & share the world I want to live in!



Personal Information:
I am SO blessed to be alive & living in a world with my Spiritual support, DH, my family & friends & my Sparkling friends! I am still Sparking to help support other "Sparkers"! I have found my healing, physically, spiritually & emotionally, here & want to share it with you, if I can! SP is my ONLY social network. Being an example is the ONLY way I can help anyone, else! It is up to each of us to find our own way. SP offers us the tools! Choose what works for you & share your findings with the world!

    It's freeky Friday, and the day before Halloween! Welcome to my Pumpkin Patch. Take a load off and come sit for a spell.
    I've been busy brewing up these little frog kisses of humor for you. I'll be trying to scare up some good ol' fashioned Halloween fun and giggles for you. Some of these might seem a little batty, but make no bones about it - I'm sure one will scare a good laugh out of you. And now, my little pretties, let the spellbinding undertaking begin . . .

    Why do skeletons have such low esteem?
    They have no body to love.

    Why don't mummies take a vacation when Halloween is over?
    They're afraid they'll unwind.

    What's it like to be kissed by a vampire?
    It's a real pain in the neck!

    What streets do ghosts like to haunt best?
    Dead ends.

    What's a ghost's least favorite room in a house?
    The living room.

    What food do witches like to eat at the beach?
    Sandwiches

    How do you make a skeleton laugh?
    You tickle his funny bone.

    Why are ghosts such terrible liars?
    You can see right through them.

    What food do Italians like to eat on Halloween?
    Fettucini afraid-o.

    Knock, knock. . .
    Who's there?
    Orange. . .
    Orange who?
    Orange you glad these Halloween giggles are finally over?!

    Tip of the day:
    1. Give out apples for Halloween.
    2. Wait for teenagers to T.P. your house.
    3. Collect T.P. from trees and shrubs.
    4. Now you won't have to buy T.P. for the next 6 months!

    I hope you had a howlin' good time, and wish you a very Happy Howl-oween, along with a spooktacular weekend!
