I do well at popping in and out here, and I'm popping back in for a while

I thought I had changed my page intro, but it didn't take, apparently. Anyway, here I am, back to get into a groove. I have been doing only yoga and some very, very gentle walks, relatively little, for some time, now. I don't seem able to fin... Read more
It's been a loooong time!

Time flies -- so much has happened and I've been away from Spark for a while. Oh, I haven't exactly gotten off track. I haven't run for a while. The very cold, and, lately, snowy winter got me down, as well as a couple news reports of some co... Read more
Life is what happens while we're making other plans

You really never know exactly what a day will bring. Or how you will react to it. I knew my Mom was dying, and had been preparing myself for that finality for a while. And for the most part, I prepared well. I did much of my crying and r... Read more

Thank you all who have messaged, and posted on my blog, and sent little gifts and notes on my Mom's passing. I SO appreciate it. I am an only child from a small family, so, aside from my wonderful husband's relatives, there are few who can sh... Read more

that was my beautiful best friend, my Mom, back in the day. Mom had been in a nursing care facility for years now, with dementia. She passed away last night, late at... Read more
Gonna step up my photography
Saturday, August 18, 2012      3 comments

So my little first digital camera, a Sony Cybershot, has quit reading its memory sticks, and after dealing with using only the tiny internal memory a while, I shopped around and decided to get a new point-and-shoot. I knew there are a lot... Read more
What's your best home remedy for a very minor cold?
Saturday, August 18, 2012      5 comments

Yep, after the conference last weekend, I woke up one morning later in the week and just felt a tiny bit blah. It was a workout day and so I ran my C25K session just fine. Didn't feel more tired than usual from it afterward although I think ma... Read more
Duchovny? Anderson? Nah.

Well, old X Files fan gurrrl that I am, I still managed to miss the flurry of Tweets and status updates that went around about David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson allegedly dating. Apparently they are NOT. But I didn't even know that Ducho... Read more
Go! Curiosity!
Monday, August 06, 2012      5 comments

I'm just a bit more tired today than normal. That's because I stayed up until early this morning to watch the Curiousity Rover land on Mars. Or rather, to listen to it land. We watched the simulation video, while listening to and watching the... Read more
Oh for color-coordinated running shoes!
Saturday, August 04, 2012      8 comments

Wow, the Lunarglides sure do look pretty in those ads. I know it's lame and superficial, and yet, I sometimes still wish that the right running shoe for me were one of those electric green or bright, bright yellow pairs. My shoes are whi... Read more
Sparkers, thanks for journeying with me!

Wow! That was what I saw every time I looked up as I walked outdoors this evening. A very unusual cloud formation for my area! It was a nice night! I took a not-very-... Read more
Time, time time, what has become of you?
Monday, July 30, 2012      2 comments

Ack! It's happening again! I thought I had things all on schedule, and now my day's falling apart. I am not sure how I will fit my workout in. I know that sounds kind of wimpy because my workout is ONLY a half an hour's worth of time for... Read more
I "heart" Running
Saturday, July 28, 2012      6 comments

I'm still really enjoying getting back into running. It has been a little bit rough here what with trying several phone apps, battling my tendency to stay indoors and the high heat outside, as well as just life's busy-ness. I'm proud of myself... Read more
Dinner plans on the spur of the moment
Friday, July 20, 2012      1 comments

Spent most of this afternoon wondering whether the heavens were going to open up on us. We are under a flood watch. But eventually I just figured I should go ahead and run on the treadmill, so I did that, and afterward, I still got to the groc... Read more
