First of all, I think SparkPeople is a wonderful place - truly and absolutely. I have accumulated over 100k points over the better part of eight years. Sometimes I am more inter-active than others and I certainly have learned a lot and enjoy k... Read more

How did so many weeks go by since our last blog? Life, I guess. The boys had birthdays - so Riley is now 6 and, according to his made-up birthday, Brody is now 2 yo. We've taken the summer off from our therapy pet visits and kept busy with "M... Read more

Have to admit, I have a bad case of spring fever. But instead of whining, I poured another cup of coffee and will blog instead. On a positive note, our weather could always be worse, right? (Am looking at you Minnesota!!) Besides, we've alre... Read more
Brody bits... he is a teenager!
Tuesday, April 10, 2018      9 comments

Just sitting here watching it snow (yup, the calendar says it's April) with a sleeping dog on my lap. No, it isn't Riley, my sweet petite doodle. He's over on the dog bed - pouting. The lapdog is my funny little rescue, Brody, who has reached... Read more

Sparking with a planner
Wednesday, February 28, 2018      9 comments

Like so many of you, I have spent a lifetime trying to find ways to support my health through better food choices and exercise. That’s one of the main reasons we’re here – right? For months (years?), I have been stuck in the “thinking about” a... Read more
Forces decluttering
Sunday, January 21, 2018      11 comments

My latest attempt at decluttering was unscheduled and comes with both positive and negatives... a wet basement. After an extraordinary thaw (remember that 50 degree temperature swing in less than 24 hrs I mentioned?) coupled with rain, my norma... Read more
Morning re-do
Monday, January 08, 2018      12 comments

Oh, how easily we fall into bad habits... why not the good ones? There must be some research on that out there or else some grad student looking for a doctoral thesis. As I sit here on the couch - in my jammies, coffee cup to the right, napp... Read more

Have you gone through the New Year ritual of reflecting on 2017 and looking forward to 2018? Mine is still in progress but here's a status report. I don't consciously set resolutions and goals (had enough of that throughout my career in ev... Read more
Brody bits in which dog meets snow
Thursday, December 14, 2017      9 comments

It's been a while since Brody has shared his view of life so our recent lake effect snow event prompted me to share. We live about 15 miles off the southeast corner of one of the Great Lakes - Ontario to be exact. When our generous Canadian ne... Read more
