Hope your computer is OK. It sounds a bit like us, getting old and decrepit but we keep plodding on, lol.

Thanks. I'll have to put that on my blog.

For some reason I can pull up my Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. I can only get on with Google Chrome. Hope it isn't my computer, it is pretty old.

Isn't tomorrow Tartan Day? I wish I knew my tartan colors. I know I have Arthur, Douglass surnames in my family tree.

I posted somewhere that I had done the 10 min of cardio, but I did it yesterday.....can't find my post, wonder what team I posted that to???

I was hoping to go to the gym today, but looks like rain and DH said he didn't want to go in the rain. Can't wait to get my own car. We only have one car and he feels he is the better driver and prefers to drive, after all we do have doc appts for us and his mom so if no car we don't have a second one to rely on.

I do like the idea of daily challenges. Thanks.

Nice team points, Janet.

I'll be more than happy to post an Exercise challenge.
We'll start with daily, and see how we get on?

emoticon 50 points for the team today!!


I would welcome some daily challenges, because I regained 25 pounds during my husband's illness and after his death: all the comfort food people brought, plus stress eating, plus inactivity because of a knee injury. I am ready to take some small but effective steps toward better health.

And today, had a lovely wee chat with younger son this evening - he's heading for bed.
But he seems to have had a fun weekend with his brother and sis-in-love!

Had to laugh, though, when he told me that the menu on the Polish restaurant was actually in English LOL!

Happy Easter.

Would we like some exercise / lifestyle challenges?
Will anybody join me if I post some wee daily challenges?
And/or - is there anything else you'd like to see happening?

Had a lovely couple of hours with older son and his wife, this morning. And it was so good to see round their new flat. Especially after their negativity when we last saw them - which was, admittedly, very shortly after they'd been given notice to move.

Hopefully they got up the road to Aberdeen in good time - younger son had booked a table for them at a Polish restaurant (his thinking being that his sister-in-law could translate for him).

We got to Costco and I was able to be there for my shopping, for a change (no denigration to hubby - he's always got what he can from my shopping list, plus anything else he thinks I might like).

And - my very few daffodils are showing - one in particular has been in flower for a few days now.
My biggest thanks is that hubby has left these bulbs alone as he has been clearing the garden of brambles and stuff. He;s never shown any sensitivity like that in the past.

Easter is only two days away, and the spring bulbs will likely not be ready. Meaning daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths. But my crocuses, scilla, and pussy willow bush have all bloomed, including one crocus from the ones I "naturalized" last fall when Bob was sick. They will always remind me of him.

Christine, your idea of encouraging your son's cleaning habits is a good one. I am not, I'm afraid, a consistent cleaner, but when I get going, I really can make the place look good! I may spring clean when my knee gets back to near normal: I have a strained ligament and an arthritis flare-up. I guess I should be glad of the excuse to take it easy: there are LOTS of books to be read!

A blessed Easter to all! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Heading to see older son and his wife in the morning.
They're going to stay with younger son for the Easter weekend, so I have younger son's combined birthday/Christmas present ready for them to take :)

Yes, I know I'm a bit previous (his b'day isn't till October, and we all know when Christmas is).
But he was so taken with my steam cleaner a couple of weeks ago when hubby and I went to Aberdeen to help clean his old flat (to get the max possible of his deposit returned) and see his new place, that he asked for one of his own. And I want him to have it while he remembers how "excited" he was with the ease of cleaning with it, regular thorough cleaning not being his strongest point (I'm afraid he takes after me, quite major-ly).

So, we'll get to see older son's new flat too - they were served with notice very unexpectedly, a few weeks ago. Landlord suffering financially and wants a place to sell :(

And I'll also get to do the Costco shopping with hubby which he'd otherwise have done on his own today on his way home from his Mum's.

I am eager to get into the garden, too, but it will be awhile before it's warm again. I can still go out and pull weeds, though. emoticon

Spring's warm weather has taken a vacation, but the spring bulbs are doing well. I have scilla and crocuses in bloom, and the pussy willow is nice and fuzzy. And the rhubarb is poking through the soil. I am getting excited for gardening weather!

Yesterday and today have been spring-like - sunshine, daffodils, birds singing - and hubby working out in the garden, making a definite effort (first time in humpty-dumpty years).

Hope everyone's doing well?

Both daughters gathered here at the Halfway House and we did get more packing down for my moving to Ohio with my youngest. She took Home what she could and they both will be back Saturday as I am supposed to move Sunday. There's plenty going on here this week and once again snow is in the forecast for this weekend. Looking forward to the 24/7 time with grand-daughter.

Have a perfect week ( if there is such a thing )..........

Thanks, Michele. I am doing pretty well with no viral illnesses so far this year. I take a supplement that is supposed to strengthen my immune system: perhaps it really works, and perhaps it's a placebo. Whatever it is, I am thankful to be relatively healthy. Which, given all the stress surrounding my husband's illness and death, is something to be thankful for. I still have trouble sleeping, but I have for years. If anyone has any good suggestions, I am all for them!

On a happier note, I met a young missionary to India this morning at church. He is visiting congregations to let them know what his work is and gathering support. I would like to support him for many reasons, some not at all theological: he was born in Scotland and received a degree from the University of Edinburgh, his wife is a quilter, and his brother is a Facebook friend. AND, he will be heading first for Sri Lanka, which is one of the places featured in one of my favorite Rosamunde Pilcher books, Coming Home. I love Scotland and things and places connected to it and treasure the memories of the time I actually got to visit! Now I feel the need to go read one of the books or look at photo books.

I hope you are all doing well this winter Sunday and hope that spring comes early for all of you! We had a taste of it yesterday: it will be here before we know it! emoticon emoticon

I was hingin' nearly all week, last week - then unable for a day or so.
Unfortunately, it was just total exhaustion - I still had something of an appetite :( Not good to eat with no moving.

I still got some more of my clearing/decluttering done, but not a complete job - still have bits and pieces to finish off.
However, I managed to get a load more done today.
And I did manage to lose another 1 lb last week.

The Kentucky crude is going around the Ohio River Valley this Winter.The Hot Toddy is the drug of choice along with Chicken Noodle Soup. Figure it will not leave till Spring if then.
Hope all are well across the Pond.

I have been very erratic on Spark lately, but I wanted to share that today I got 50 team points! I am not sure if we have a thread for that or not, but I want you to rejoice with me! It's about time Spark let loose the points instead of being stingy with them! emoticon

Michele, brrrr!! I remember my Ohio weather, driving in snow and ice covered roads.

DH will go see the doctor for the results in a couple weeks. Seems like a long time to wait, I think if anything was serious the doctor would call sooner. Next Thursday we go for DH kidney ultrasound and my mammo.....or as my friend calls it the squish-o-gram.

Winter storm Jonas left some emoticon from the West Coast through the South and then up the East Coast. This past Friday Kayla start from the West Coast with rain and Snow.
Now she has spread the rain and tornados thru the South with Florida getting hit hard. Kentucky is forecast for Severe storms Tuesday and Wednesday. The Weather Channel mentioned that El Nino would hang around for this year. emoticon

Copy of post from Coach Jen about a couple of wee changes - started yesterday.

"Hi everyone!

"Two new things launched today that I wanted to let you know about:

"1. On the Nutrition Tracker, you can now make a Quick Entry. This basically lets you add a calorie/carb/fat/protein value to a meal, without searching for a food, nor adding a manual food.

"2. We used to let people share 1 piece of content for 3 points a day. We now let you share up to 3 pieces, and at 3 points per piece, you can get 9 points a day.

"Thanks!

"Coach Jen"

We keep spinning in the hope of the big one. I couldn't believe the first week of the year when my flags threw up 50 points on four separate days. LOL

Fell by the wayside last year but back on track now.

Boy, you never know what points you are going to get for a team. I got 20 here, next 3 got a 1 and next got 10. Too bad they can't tell you how much you have to spend and you give what you want a team to get.

I'm sorry I dropped the ball on doing the advent challenge. I was almost going to give up SP, but stayed on. Just seems like too much to do in so little time. My lips don't seem to have the cold sores now, but the bottom lip especially, feels dry and to open my mouth wide hurts. I sent a message to the allergies but never heard back so maybe I'll call tomorrow. Don't know if it is an allergy or not.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016. I'm going into it with cold sores and allergies so hope the year is uphill for here on. I have started a better exercise routine though.

i will leave it to the team leader to start a 2016 chat time, but I just wanted to tell you all Happy New Year and that I hope to be more active in 2016, following a VERY difficult 2015. May we all have a wonderful year and count our blessings, appreciating what we have. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thanks for the info. Now I'll be up on more of the holidays etc for Scotland. I wish I could visit your country someday but that will never happen so will live it reading your post and links. Thanks.

Hogmanay is the name given to New Year's Eve Celebrations in Scotland. I think there is a link called rampantscotland. I'll check and get back to you.

I had a look and the link, I think is: www.rampantscotland.com/know/blknow12.htm

It's not showing up in highlight so maybe you will have to just type in rampant scotland. It has lots of info regarding Hogmanay.

You have a lot of holidays this time of year. What is Hogmanay? I think I looked that up a while back.

Sounds like you've had a lovely time Christine. Christmas Day here was hectic but enjoyable and we're heading off to younger son's for Hogmanay.

Have a nice New Year.

Well, that's my Christmas-time coming to an end :(
Younger son has been here since Tuesday evening, but heads off tomorrow - back home, back to work.
It has been so happy-nice to have him here with us, even though his brother changed plans and went with his wife to her folk. Well, Poland is further from here than Glasgow!

A few days to get ourselves sorted again, then we head to Mother-in-Law.
We've gone there to see in the New Year for a good number of years, so we can't not go now that we have a bit more freedom for do-what-we-want! Especially given the state of her health.

And then we'll get older son and his (new) wife here sometime in January.
They've already pencilled in the weekend closest to 25 January for the Burns Night Ceilidh at my church - so that may well be Christmas as well LOL!
