Laughing at myself
Sunday, October 14, 2012      3 comments

Today I fixed broccoli for dinner, cooked in just a bit of water. As I was about to drain it, I decided to be lazy and just drain it into the empty teapot that was sitting on the stove. No big deal, right? I would just empty it out later and ... Read more
Some time for me
Thursday, October 11, 2012      2 comments

I had such a nice time today at lunch. I actually organized a lunch for a friend who is new to my parish. I wanted to introduce her to a couple of my other friends from the parish. Ideally, I would have invited at least six or seven ladies, b... Read more
Not much energy today
Thursday, October 11, 2012      1 comments

Well, after yesterday was so full of (for me) intense exercise - which I am sure most people would consider very minimal - I just didn't have the energy today to do much of anything. To include getting out of my chair. I made a spark recipe wh... Read more
A Small Triumph
Wednesday, October 10, 2012      0 comments

It probably doesn't compare to most of the triumphs posted by other sparkers, but today I finally finished mowing my entire lawn. I have a very small front yard, and a very, very big back yard. I honestly don't think I have ever had the entire... Read more

I am really, really tired after a week of serious cleaning and an evening of serious lawn mowing. I do think I got a significant amount of exercise and that makes me happy, but I am so tired I have to wonder if it was worth it. And I am starti... Read more
Fall Cleaning Part II
Friday, October 05, 2012      2 comments

I was spot on in my last blog - it took a total of five days of hard cleaning and decluttering, but I am finally more or less finished - with the downstairs of the house. I just about killed myself, though - I am exhausted! And every single da... Read more
Fall Cleaning
Wednesday, October 03, 2012      3 comments

I always did march to the beat of a different I decided it was time for fall cleaning instead of spring. Boy, did the house need it! I have been working my tail off for three days, and I anticipate at least two more. Who knew I h... Read more
A very good birthday
Thursday, September 27, 2012      2 comments

I actually had a pretty nice birthday yesterday, though I wasn't really expecting to. The birthday cake I made came out very well - although not as much of it was eaten at the potluck I took it to as I had expected. But I think I will put the ... Read more

Tomorrow (less than an hour away) is my birthday, and I am fighting a pity party. I won't get any presents...but that is normal anymore, and I don't really want presents per se. What I want is to be with the people I love and who love me, and ... Read more
An embarrassing non-scale victory
Sunday, September 23, 2012      3 comments

Today I wanted to look nice for church, so I decided to grab a skirt from the closet. I should add that I almost never wear a skirt. Usually I wear nice pants and a dressy top for church. This was a skirt I had bought some years ago and proba... Read more

Another doctor's appointment, so another accurate weight. And I was sort of pleased to know that I am maintaining. Not what I really wanted, since I would like to be losing, but I refuse to call it a plateau...just maintaining at a slightly hi... Read more
More sprinkler
Thursday, September 13, 2012      1 comments

I have to chuckle. After all the trouble I went to with my sprinkler system, and finally getting it fixed yesterday, I was most dismayed this morning when I went outside and discovered that my expensive sprinkler system had not gone on in the m... Read more
Sprinkler System...sigh
Thursday, September 13, 2012      0 comments

Some time ago, I wanted to help out my nephew, who was a struggling contractor. I asked him to put in a sprinkler system, since I had a little money to spend on home improvement. And, here in south Texas, yes, if one wants one's house to not c... Read more
Sick :-(
Saturday, September 08, 2012      2 comments

I was way overoptimistic in my last blog in hoping that my cold wouldn't get worse. It did. Much worse. I still feel as though my head was hit by a hammer, probably partly because I had three nights in a row of bad sleep. For some odd reason... Read more
Tire Troubles
Thursday, September 06, 2012      2 comments

I admit that there are days I wish I had stayed in bed...yesterday started out really well, but by the end of the day...well, it was one of THOSE days. I had arranged to meet my ex-husband and get my child support and give him our son for t... Read more
