Day one or one day
Friday, January 20, 2017      17 comments

Saw these words posted on FB the other day. Can't find a source. May be it's just too simple. Simple and powerful. Is today the day we "just do it" or are we going to put it off until tomorrow... again. Which is it gonna be? ... Read more

Thursday, January 19, 2017      12 comments

Another Sparker posted a blog which mentioned that yesterday was "National Winnie the Pooh Day." It marked the birth date of A. A. Milne the original author and creator of this remarkable, loveable icon of children's literature. But unlike thi... Read more

Picked this as my theme this morning because I just realized this is my fourth day tracking my food on SP. Now mind you, it doesn't mean I'm ... Read more
Brody bits in which a ball is lost and then found
Saturday, January 14, 2017      17 comments

The latest laugh from my darling, scruffy, 7mo puppy, Brody... As you may have read previously, both of my boys love to play fetch. The game must occur simultaneously with both for somewhat obvious reasons. It works out pretty well most o... Read more

Saw this graphic this morning and had another one of those "ah ha" moments. My inner voice was shouting "Exactly!" Not only do we each define succ... Read more
Brody bits... in which B. survives a mysterious event
Wednesday, January 11, 2017      15 comments

Am not quite sure exactly what happened today - thus the mystery. But I'm going to assume it was terrifying for poor Brody... thus the "accident." Let me explain... Riley had a therapy dog visit this afternoon at his favorite place... vi... Read more
Marching in place

There's double meaning in today's title. On the one hand, I am adding up those steps on my FitBit any way possible. If you use a step or activity tracker, then you know you have to work with them. That is because if your steps are anything bu... Read more
Spreading some sparkles today

Brrrrrr... it's a cold one here today. I still feel adventurous getting up before sunrise (not hard to do when that is 7:36 a.m.) bundling up first one dog then the other (I walk them separately first thing in the morning) and starting the day ... Read more

Have to start with a clarification... yesterday I blogged about small steps. As part of that blog I listed personal examples of small steps that resulted in permanent change. On the list was quitting smoking. Yes, i did quit but not this past... Read more
It's okay to start small
Monday, January 02, 2017      16 comments

This time of year it's natural to look back and see where we've been. I have enjoyed taking some quiet time to read quite a few blogs. These end-of-year thoughts have been a mixed bag of life's ups and downs. Some of us feel energized and ju... Read more
Happy new year: the kindness edition
Sunday, January 01, 2017      9 comments

Started the new year with an unusually big breakfast, followed by a good cup of coffee, a lap warmed by one of my furbabies and the Sunday newspaper. One of the last sections I read is the Parade Magazine supplement. If you've read it then you... Read more
