Triple Digits

Hot!

It's going to be 100 or more every day in the near forecast, going up around 105, which is plenty hot enough.

Instead of cranking the air conditioning down really cold, I've set up fans wherever I plan to spend time, especially near where I play with the Wii....

We can do this..... We CAN!

    I have fans going all the time and it does help with the A/C. Do you think you can get the temp to come down a little by the time we head down there??? My mom is back down and said the other day's actual temp was 111 in the Valley.

YES we CAN!!!

Lost the Earlier Blog

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

I hate it when I so carefully compose a blog , and then it disappears into the cyber-ether...

Earlier I wrote about the adorable pink pearlized motor scooter/ moped I saw while out and about this morning....

It made me fantasize about getting one and what life would be like on a pink pearlized moped.... very fun, I'd guess...

    Oops! It's gone!

I've always thought a moped would be fun, but my dad, who was a medical doctor in general practice, strictly forbade my brother, my sister, and me from ever getting on a motorcycle. He said he set too many broken bones and sewed too many stitches on Saturday nights from kids who crashed their motorcycles. Now, as an adult, I'm still too chicken to try!

Still, a pink pearlized moped does sound like a fun fantasy!

    That happens to me once in a while and I still haven't figured out what I hit to wipe out the entire posting!! It is fun to dream about something and yours is a bright vision!! Maybe you will have to go and look at one for you!!

    I hate when that happens a lot. On a great blog, I have started to copy it first so that in case I loose it, I have a copy I can re paste

Wii Fit Time

Monday, August 18, 2014

I got my Wii out last week, and spent several days chasing down instructions and trouble shooting and replacing batteries (!!!), but this morning I got it working....

It welcomed me back, and said that it had been 1136 days since I had been on it...

Well, needless to say, I'm having to relearn all the skills that I had done fairly well on before... I'm lousy right now...

But I should get better with practice.

It's WAY too hot to spend time outside, so I SHOULD get better pretty fast.... I'll let you know.

Encouraged by Spark Blogs

Sunday, August 17, 2014

I've been running on auto pilot lately, going through the motions, but often without a lot of enthusiasm (sometimes I really miss my usual enthusiasm!)...

But I am always encouraged by reading other people's blogs that they post on SP.

The funny pictures, the deep profound thoughts, and even the tales of messing up and cries for help give me the will to continue, to re-examine, to reach out to others, and to take control of my own choices and choose responsibly..

So, thanks, fellow Sparkers... you don't know how much I appreciate you as you touch my life...

    As I read blogs, I gain so much insight into our friends and the challenges we all have. I love the fun ones and hurt when someone is hurting, the beauty shows in all people as they write about their feelings and daily activities as well. Some beautiful scenery and we can travel to foreign countries with our friends living there and sharing through pictures and walks. I so agree with you and will continue reading as many as I can! great blog, Julie!!

    I agree sometimes our spark blogs are what keeps us going. The motivation and insight, the humor, the beauty that surrounds us and we can't always see for our own stress. The prays, laughter and tears keeps us here, trying to succeed in our journeys and helping our friends continue on theirs. Have a great day dear friend.

Big Weekend?

Friday, August 15, 2014

In a tourist town there's always a lot going on, especially on a summer weekend, ESPECIALLY on a weekend late in August just before school starts and everything shifts into a different schedule...

This weekend is no exception, with all kinds of busy activities happening around us...

But, regardless of all the things available, I'm looking forward to an old friend from college days coming for a visit.... the best kind of weekend activity...

I praise the Lord for friends who will be Forever Friends...
