Half Full, Half Empty - I Must Choose
Over the last few days, I have been making much more concerted efforts to get my walking in. I have surpassed my goal of 10,000 steps a day 3 times in 8 days - which is huge for me considering I was previously thinking a 5,000 to 6,000 step day... Read more
Baby steps (again)
I fell off the SP band wagon for awhile there. It was lots of different stuff that I don't really want to expound upon right now, but I knew I was actively eschewing SP while I was doing it. There were no real reasons preventing me from loggin... Read more
D.S.T. I missed you. I love you. Now be nice!
I do love Daylight Saving Time.
I'm a bit of a geek about Daylight Saving Time. Like, I actually have checked out some of the history of DST and why we do/don't benefit from observing it. I even geeked out all over another sparker's blog ... Read more
Random things to do in spring
I needed another dose of Happy to keep from slipping into a winter funk. I started looking ahead to spring and thinking of lots of things to look forward to. No particular order, just stuff.
Plant something green. See the cherry blossoms... Read more
The negative effects of exercise. Say what? You heard me.
It is not my intention to write a blog to the tune of: woe is me, life is holding me back, it’s beyond my control, I’m a victim. Rather, the intent is: I believe there is a balance to be struck, I haven’t found it yet, I’m trying. I think of ... Read more
Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome
I have Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome. What this basically means is that my circadian rhythms are not on the same schedule as a majority of the world’s populations. This is not a self-diagnosis, I have seen doctors and specialists. A great deal... Read more
What do 2 people do with an 8 lb. chicken?
This Thursday, on my snow day, I roasted an 8 lbs. chicken. There are only two of us, so that’s a lot of chicken. If I had gone to the store on Tuesday, I’d have probably been able to get the 3.5 lbs. chicken I really wanted, but I went Wednes... Read more
Necessary Random Positive Thoughts
Because I’m thoroughly sick of this weather and because I’m figuring I’ll end up without power again before this latest snowfall is over and because I’m no longer enjoying playing Pothole & Downed-Wire Slalom during my commute and mostly because... Read more
Spark Friend Addition
I find the friending method here at Spark a little awkward. For me. Anyone else? Anyone? ??
I actually sent this email to another Sparker a few months ago, so rather than rewrite, I'll copy and paste the pertinents:
Fir... Read more
Yesterday I was unable to post a blog. Kept getting an error message. I even tried to post from two different computers.
So, I'm just testing to see if I'm able to post today.... Read more
SP saves lunch...again!!
Today I was having a huge hankering for a roast beef sandwich for lunch. I haven’t had one in over a year, and straight up roast beef isn’t something I make at home.
So I sat here at my desk and went through some of the offerings of the lo... Read more
Statler to the vet, again
Gotta take the cat to the vet tomorrow. This is Statler that has to go. Again. But, not for being The Vominator this time, so that’s something.
He has developed a limp over the last week, and I found a squishy lump under his right front l... Read more
The Great Kitchen Reorganization
This would be a pretty boring movie, and considering it promises to be my Saturday matinee, that’s apropos.
I have a pretty decent size kitchen. Which makes me pretty lucky. It was designed in the 1950s. Which makes me not as lucky as I ... Read more
Ever find half a worm in your apple? I did.
It was actually worse than finding half a worm. And it wasn’t an apple.
It has destroyed any relationship I could ever have with that fruit.
I’m thinking of this incident because I was perusing some blogs here on SP, and ran across a ... Read more
Is it pettiness or being a foodie?
Today my bf is house-sitting for someone. He’s sprung his g-ma from the local geriatric center she calls home, and they’re having take-out from a deli we don’t get to frequent. Isn’t that sweet? I think it is.
This deli is the freaking b... Read more
