Hiatus

Monday, April 21, 2014

I hope everyone had a blessed and happy Easter.
I am going to be taking a hiatus from SP for an undermined length of time.
I will check my spark mail from time-to-time, if you want to stay in contact with me.
I appreciate all the friendships I have formed.
I am fine - life just doesn't have enough hours.

    You have to do what's best for you! Sparking shouldn't be a burden or something you feel you have to do. You will be missed!! Hope to see you back when life isn't so hectic for you!!!

    I've felt the same way -- overwhelmed with all that's happening in my life, with barely any wiggle room. Things like SP and Facebook can be real time-suckers and sometimes you just have to step back a bit.

That said, I hope your hiatus isn't too long. You'll be missed. Enjoy your "me-time!"

  Totally understand. Sparking takes up a great deal of time.

We are here when you return.

Snow

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Due to the snow, I was back using a cane today.
Better safe than sorry.
As it had been raining before the snow came, there were some icy areas, so I'm glad for the choice I made.

Massage

Monday, April 14, 2014

After work tonight, I went for a massage. It was good to relax and unwind after the challenges from Friday which spilled over to today. The good news is the patient is doing better.

    A massage an cure a lot of what ails me. I have a gift certificate to use and will wait until after I go to town power raking and aerating the lawn...will need some tender touch and muscle relaxation after THAT day! Happy to hear your patient is doing better and stars in your crown for going the extra mile for the patient.

Palm Sunday

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Today at Church we had a Palm Sunday procession. It was the longest distance I've walked without a cane since my knee, that was replaced, swelled during the airplane ride to AZ. I knew it was a temporary set back, but am glad to be on the road of walking more normally.

Birthday Party

Saturday, April 12, 2014

3 of my grandchildren celebrated their April birthdays today. They share a joint party as their birthdays are so close together. The cake had a picture of the 3 of them in a frame with a caption 'A picture perfect birthday'. Among others, 3 of my children and 9 of my grandchildren were there celebrating.
