Inspirational quotes!

Saturday, April 19, 2014


Good Morning Sparkly friends-
In Canada, everything is closed-tight as a drum,---on Good Friday-
It was wonderful!
The car didn't move from the garage---
It was a "stay at home" day--away from the maddening crowds--LOL
I even got for a walk---up the highway---45 minutes into it, I had to give in to "'the coughing"" and turn around--(I'm post-flu"")
But, it sure felt good to get outside and feel the fresh air--

I thought the above saying good------We all can lose a little , in a week--without too much effort---and look what it adds up to--???

We shall NEVER give up on becoming a healthier person--
Our life depends on it!

just do it----

    Love the quotes!! You are right!! Very inspirational!! So glad you got out for a walk!! I did the Dreadmill since I have been chained to my desk for these past few weeks. Working way more than I want to but still managing to get my exercise in. My himself and I are on our own this Easter Sunday. Son is going to his girlfriend's aunts who has an Easter egg hunt for all the little ones (should be a big event because girlfriend has something like 687,439 cousins and all except her and her sister have little ones) Younger daughter stayed in New Jersey this weekend to hike with some new friends she has made and oldest married daughter in in Vancouver for a dental convention so her husband went with her and they are staying all week for sightseeing!!

A nice quiet Sunday!! Can't remember the last time I had one...oh yeah.. NEVER!!!

have a lovely holiday!!

    Some things were closed from noon on here,, but after work DD and I ran errands, grocery shopped, and came home. The traffic was horrendous!
This morning you could shoot a cannon down state highway US23 a block from my house.
IT is very cold, frosty and I know streets will be jam-packed later..DD and I have 9am hair appointments but will make a beeline for home after that.

Have a Blessed Easter! Linda

that Hokey Pokey clinic-AGAIN!

Friday, April 18, 2014


This is good Friday---and amazing--we have sun----
It was a bad day yesterday , eating-wise---
I was on that ""Hope Diet""---you know--eat everything and hope for the best!

But---always the big "'Butt""---To-day I've already visited that clinic---turned myself around---
So-to-day I'm a great Sparkler----

Son #2, the Air Canada Pilot, is once again in the SIM--getting horrendous situations thrown at him---
Fat cat is fed and Asleep---
The Germans (as in dogs)- are looking good--were having a Spa day yesterday-
Himself is eating the mammoth breakfast----And---I'm so happy that I HAVE ANOTHER DAY TO GET IT RIGHT-

    You are such a hoot Lynda! Love your blogs, and I don't want to need to visit the Hokey Pokey clinic, but I want to visit it because it sounds like so much fun! The only place I have usually done the Hokey Pokey was at the skating rink, on skates!

And on the skating note, I am always the last adult standing for the limbo (of course I have a vertical advantage for that, being a mere 5 foot-nothing in height)

    The Hokey Pokey Clinic is a fab place!!! (see I was hip in the 60s and still hip with the use of the word fab!!! emoticon ) Lots and lots of exercising there and not just a place to turn yourself around!!! Shake your whole body there!! Where do I sign up???

My himself is off today!! Lucky me!! I am working and doubt he will bug me while I attempting to do that. He gets paid to be off (they work 9 hours and have every other Friday off) but for some strange reason he does not understand that I don't get paid to be off and if I don't work I don't have billable hours and don't get paid. emoticon

Somehow I will get through it today!!

Keep calm!

Thursday, April 17, 2014


Yesterday I counted calories--ALL day-----I found I wasn't hungry, but bored in the evening sitting in front of the TV--funny how one eats in the evening---I got out some very low calorie fibre very thin biscuits, to munch on, which helped--
To-day the Germans go to the groomer---
To-day also, son #2 the Pilot will be in the Sim at Pearson, in Toronto----where he will have 2 days of testing---smoke in the cockpit-wheels falliing off-engine failures-fog---Every 6 mos these Air Canada are tested---
To-day also, we have snow falling----AGAIN!
Easter weekend is here--almost--
Keep Sparking Sparkly people----
Spark as if yer life depends on it-It does you know!

    Yes indeed, "keep calm."

I share the evening munchies, and also fight the old habit of eating in front of the TV. Handle it most days, but SOMETIMES...well, you know the rest. :)

    We had more snow yesterday also, it was gone this morning. I am thankful for that at least. It is still cold, though.
My son flies Air Canada a lot, (so much they give him free things now!) so I am thankful for the SIM training!!!!!

    When your son trains in the SIM at Pearson, is it the same one that CNN has been using since MH370 disappeared? I saw on the news today that the instructor who was operating the SIM for Martin Savage of CNN was fired on Wed. because "he shamed Canadians and our company" by "dressing like a 15 year old" and for being late once. Important to note that he was putting in 12 - 18 hour days in that small cockpit - did they really expect him to wear a uniform or suit under hot cameras for that long? The uFly owner says it's my company and you do what I say. Mitchell Casada, the SIM pilot had been training someone to do his job and then they fired him when the guy was trained. My personal opinion, Mitchell did very well and did not shame any Canadians, looked fine to me and was very good on camera representing his company very well. I think the owner is an a**!!! And it looks like most other Canadians agree with me according to the posts on the 680 News Facebook page.

    NO MORE SNOW...for YOU or ME! Ugh...will it never end? It is finally getting sunny here and going to 50F +

Son #2 must be used to it all now and it is good, but I, personally, get very nervous no matter WHAT kind of test it is!! But he has to know those planes inside out! Good for his passengers.

So the Germans will come home even MORE beautiful! Good for them, good for you!

Hope you are feeling better!!! My shoulder is starting to mend. Not as painful. Instead of physician heal thyself it should be nurses heal thyself because that is what we do and I am in the process. I looked up exercises for rotator cuff tear and have been doing them and also not reaching with my sore shoulder. One of the orthos I work with wanted to do 2 cortisone injections into my shoulder and luckily he did not have the cortisone available and said he would bring it with him next time. I am not in the office much since I work from home so I plan to avoid being there when he is scheduled to be in. emoticon Not afraid of needles just maybe don't want someone sticking one into my shoulder....great big owchie!!!

Tuesday, April 15, 2014


Well-----I TRY to be thank-ful for every day----
This morning, I stumbled into the bathroom to wash my face--and--stepped right into Fat Cat's kibble bowl-Himself had put it down where the Germans wouldn't see it----
I wasn't really grateful----- emoticon

I look out right now--It's SNOWING----Youza!-It's Easter soon-- emoticon
""No EASTER BONNET For ME""!--LOL-----
(remember those Easter hats our Mom used to get us every Easter--with gloves?)
I know this snow will soon melt---but-----well--ya know---I'd like to see the grass---soon!---Am I grateful?-----Oh Pooh!!!-----not really! emoticon

But-----It is a new day--- --LOL-----No CNN---LOL----
This will be another inside day-
.....think lean thoughts........SPARK----
And now-----
--(picture borrowed from Kaseycoff)----
Here's a coffee-----LOL-----

    I remember the Easter bonnets. Being the only girl it was torture. But I really do remember the Easter I begged to wear stockings, garter belt and all. BIG mistake!! All of my girl friends grew up faster than I did (I was still a tomboy) but figured I should "go with the flow" There was not turning back!! Thankfully pantyhose came along a few years later. So much easier, no girdles, no garters, no feeling like you could not move or breathe!!! emoticon

We are supposed to get torrential rain today and tonight and then turn cold again!! It is already really dark here.

We should run away to an island where there is sunshine all year round. My himself wants to retire to Chili. Crazy man, First I am not going anywhere now that I have my little chicks all within a 2 hour drive 2) My son is incapable of taking care of himself and 3) Gianormous earthquakes in Chile. It was a big definite HELL NO!!!!

With all that snow, seems like the grandkids will need to hunt Easter eggs indoors at your home.
