Day 492 - True Colors
Tuesday, April 05, 2016      16 comments

There must be something in the cosmos that is causing so much angst on SP today. Two of my friends posted major disappointments with SP, having a blog taken down because someone was offended, a mobile app that doesn't work as expected, or just g... Read more
Day 491 - Best Laid Plans
Monday, April 04, 2016      13 comments

We had every intention of putting the boat in the water today. The battery charger is struggling to get the boat battery fully charged, but that wasn't the sticking point. We found a great new garden center in Middletown (about a half-hour ... Read more
Day 489 - I'm No Fool
Friday, April 01, 2016      17 comments

I looked for a good April Fool's Day meme involving Donald Trump, but didn't see anything appropriate for SP. I certainly hope that Trump is just an April Fool's joke, but I'm afraid that he's playing his supporters for fools instead. The o... Read more

Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments on my post from yesterday where I took you on my walk around the Loop. I love that we live in such a gorgeous spot with fantastic vistas from all over our county. We really do have a little piece... Read more
Day 487 - Walk the Loop With Me
Wednesday, March 30, 2016      21 comments

To start off my Spring Break right, I decided to take the walk around the Loop (about 3.5 miles, extended a bit today) and thought I would invite you all to join me. The first part of the trip is uphill, the street right across from our hou... Read more
Day 486 - Where's Your Path
Tuesday, March 29, 2016      20 comments

As I left campus to go to make my last bank deposit for March, I was behind a car that had a bumper sticker that read "Don't follow the path, make o... Read more
Day 485 - T-shirt Motivation
Monday, March 28, 2016      13 comments

I'm posting this image for two reasons. One... I've been putting on shirts in the closet that had always been too tight, even before I gai... Read more
Day 484 - All About the Bunny
Monday, March 28, 2016      12 comments

One of my employees at the college was born in France and came to the US when he was 9 years old. Although he comes across as American as any of us,... Read more
Day 483 - Renewal
Sunday, March 27, 2016      10 comments

We spent a good part of the afternoon outside repotting plants that survived the winter and pruning damaged branches from various shrubs and trees. The lemon tree has been moved to a less windy spot - I hope it is happier there! It was a reminde... Read more
Day 481 - 100,000
Friday, March 25, 2016      10 comments

Thank you all for your kind comments on my blog post yesterday about Milestones. I'm getting ready to hit another one first thing tomorrow, when I cross 100,000 SparkPoints! I could have cheated and reached that point much earlier, but it was im... Read more
Day 480 - Milestones
Thursday, March 24, 2016      18 comments

There were a lot of milestones this week. It was a year ago yesterday that I started my job at Habitat for Humanity, the job that made me an official Lake County resident. That I found my dream job a few months later is the icing on the cake, bu... Read more
Day 478 - Maximizing Effort
Tuesday, March 22, 2016      16 comments

Coaching is unlocking a person's potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them. I have a w... Read more
Day 476 - Clarifications
Saturday, March 19, 2016      13 comments

In my post yesterday, some people thought I meant that people shouldn't share their troubles on SparkPeople. I'm sorry if that was the message you received, but it wasn't what I meant to say. (In the heat of the moment, sometimes the words come ... Read more
Day 475 - Touching the Heart
Saturday, March 19, 2016      18 comments

I read some blogs what are full of "woe is me" stuff. I want to feel empathy, but the writer seems to be looking for pity more than support. Sometimes I can't provide the reaction that is desired, so I move on without commenting on the blog post... Read more
Day 474 - Irish Heritage
Thursday, March 17, 2016      13 comments

"May you never forget what is worth remembering nor ever remember what is best forgotten." I've spent much of today thinking about my Irish her... Read more
