Poppy Window

You know that poppy plastic bubble wrap you get for packing things for shipping? I had two huge sheets of it from an Amazon order. My bathroom is cold. So today I tap... Read more

Heart Art

Sunday, February 08, 2015      5 comments

I read this on a favorite website this morning and was moved by it. The site is and I get a note from their RSS feed daily. Interesting heart art, but the saying is a good reminder of how important it is to feel li... Read more

From my Sofa to Yours

Saturday, February 07, 2015      5 comments

Aside from napping a lot, there is little news from here. No bright flashes in the sky and no tragedies; what little good that has occurred has been just a little bit better than nothing happening at all. Well, I did buy a quesadilla maker but i... Read more

The stairs had to be cleared--it took some hard work by me to do it. I measured 24 inches near the stairs and then gave up on getting to the REAL drifts to measure any more. Never made it to the car. My dear neighbor did a little of hi... Read more

Same old snow in CT

Tuesday, January 27, 2015      5 comments

I got some snow, here on the 395 corridor. It drifted over the back stairs entirely and I can't open the storm door on the front porch. It is still blowing around, real light fluff like dandelions. The mailbox has snow all the way up the pole a... Read more

So I put on a skirt for the blizzard...

Monday, January 26, 2015      4 comments

I wore a skirt today for the first time in maybe five years, one of those long flowy Indian jobs with a hideous print (unless you are a sofa). How inconvenient having to hike all that gauzy fabric up to get to your too-tight tights. Then the boo... Read more

Seven Years

Saturday, September 27, 2014      11 comments

Well, it's seven years with Spark as of tomorrow. What have I gained, aside from at least 30 pounds? Sorry I just don't see much. Lots of online friends are the only thing I have really followed through on. The rest of it, the teams and points a... Read more

Catching Up

Sunday, September 14, 2014      7 comments

The start of school wears everyone out, yes? We who work at the school, the kids who have to get themselves back, even the groundskeepers...everyone has a few weeks of frenzied exhaustion before we sadly acknowledge that we are back in the routi... Read more

Wasp Nest Update

Saturday, August 30, 2014      6 comments

Are they gone? I am not quite sure. I gave the nest a good poison spray soaking at dusk twice and early in the morning twice. Each time there were fewer and fewer of them, little white-faced hornets or wasps or whatever the devil they are. Ju... Read more

Wasp Nest!

This not pertinent to weight loss...Just another drama in my daily life... I noticed this thing today and trust me, I am buying the long-range spray tomorrow and spraying it at night, then heading right into the house to hide! Yikes! ... Read more

Back to School & Metamucil

I work at a prep school and we started our meetings yesterday. I don't teach. I am the Head's exec. assistant, so I have to prepare and/or review all of the stuff that we do to set up the new year. And then take minutes on 5 days of meetings. B... Read more

Guess what? The gym is more fun if you know what you are doing. emoticon Duh. I was embarrassed to ask anyon... Read more

Shopping & Sauntering

Monday, August 11, 2014      7 comments

BF and I took a four hour drive to Provincetown. We stayed from Thursday till Sunday to get good hotel rates, although it is so expensive to stay on the Cape that there is no real savings on anything. You just throw all your money in your purse,... Read more

Tried it All

Tuesday, August 05, 2014      6 comments

I have been back at the gym for a few days and feel great. I did 22 minutes on the treadmill today. Then - this is big! I did a walk-thru and training session. It took over an hour to design my exercise plan, then I tried every machine that was ... Read more
