emoticon 12-30-2020 Doing catch up work. Files, photos, closet etc. I don't think I will reach my goal of finishing the closet, BUT almost 1/2 way there! MANY people coming to visit for New years, (about 200,000. Yep you read that right!) We are staying home! I'll do errands today, before the influx. Stay safe & happy everyone! Happy New Year, when it comes!

emoticon 12-29-2020 Good morning! 1 of my Spark friends, asked what I received for Christmas. So many beautiful things! I am blessed AND grateful for my amazing life! DH gave me a new marionette puppy! (I picked it out) She is made by 1 of my VERY favorite marionette artists, Phillip Huber. Also a lovely necklace, SPIRIT OF Flight, a painting by Josephine Wall, created by jewelers KIRKS FOLLY, through a seller on eBay. AMAZINGLY beautiful! But truly my Christmas wish came through & that was that my DH stay healthy & our computers do too! Also, getting to see my Mom on Video opening the gifts we gave her! SO special! Hope yours was fun, too! Find the joy & share it!

emoticon 12-28-2020 My favorite Christmas album is PEGGY LEE's Christmas Carousel. (Remember her?) Our family made marionettes for our shows & used that music. VERY special Christmas memories. I still use the same marionettes (1967+) & her music in my shows. (At least until the pandemic, no performances, right now. I am a 'live' performer. Don't like it on video.) What is your favorite Christmas music? Finding joy & sharing it with everyone, is the way to go for me! Hope your holiday's are blessed! emoticon Happy, healthy end of the year! emoticon emoticon

emoticon 12-25-2020 Merry Christmas, everyone! DH emoticon & I & LUCY emoticon opened presents at 5am. So fun! He was VERY sick for months, last year. I bless EVERY moment we are sharing together. He is VERY well, now! I decorated a little, lovely. I got to see videos of my Mom opening the presents form us.(She is 92 & states away) I miss her so much! NEXT year, no matter what I will hug her! emoticon I will walk our wonderful LUCY a little later when it warms up. We are use to 90 degrees. It is only 55 today, but sunny! I LOVE the smell of fresh air! Be blessed everyone! THX for being my SP friend! emoticon

emoticon 12-20-2020 This year emoticon I asked my family to hand write Christmas emoticon letters to me, about WHY they love me. How they feel about me, how I may have helped them, etc. & I will write, also & send back to them, too. It is a very sweet way to connect & give a gift with them! Especially my Mom! emoticon

emoticon 12-19-2020 I am so very blessed. My life has challenges, too. But I get to live my life the way I choose, most of the time. DH & I are keeping 'it' together through this strange year. As I am sure EVERYONE is.

My Christmas wishes: for him to stay healthy; (last year he was VERY sick from Christmas eve through Valentine's Day, never did figure out why); his computer not get a virus; (the past 3 years it did, for a total make over, hours of stress, that is our livelihood)

AND for rain! We received about 1/4 inch yesterday! emoticon first rain in 240 days, YIKES!

emoticon I wish to see my Mom, (it's been since her 91 B'Day last Nov.) I want to start performing again,( I perform LIVE, not on video. I have performed every year since I was 6 yrs. old, except this 1. My last full performance was Feb. 1. I did take "LITTLE RED" on the Santa 5K, last week. I have performed JANii for people to come to our front door, masked of course. They don't come in. Mom made JANii & (LITTLE RED, as well as 5,000 others, with DH & our 'team'), gave her to me for Christmas, 2018. She means the world to me. JANii was 1 of the last marionettes mom made (I helped costume & string her) & 1 of her favorites. For her to give her to me, means ALLOT. Mom has dementia, so gifts from her are rare. Our phone conversations are VERY special.

I also wish to travel (as I use to, 5 times a year). I pray daily for our little planet & that it heals, so all of everyone living on it can thrive. As the song says, I count my blessings, not sheep, to go to sleep. I guess I'm being introspective today. Thanks for reading. SP has become VERY important to me, this year. My 3,200 days of SP EVERY day. I think it is because we are all learning how to navigate through a pandemic. YOU all understand what I am going through. & vise versa! My SP friends feel closer & closer, all the time! emoticon I'm off to hike the nature preserve, trails. Everything else is closed up there.




(her bunny slippers are darling, right?)

emoticon 12-15-2020 Today I am off to grocery shop. Trader Joe's. It will be VERY beautiful! I have organized more clothes. Marie Kondo's book, SPARK JOY, says to dump ALL of your clothes into 1 pile. I just do not have the time or space to go through everything & organize it, like that. I am a performer, have been since I was 6 yrs. I take VERY good care of my things & they last for MANY yrs. I have MANY options for living & performing. I hope to actually be doing shows, again, after the pandemic! So I have been taking it 1 type of clothes at a time. The latest is my sequin or beaded clothes. & wraps or coverlets, lot's of layering in our area.YOUR support of my Tiding up project keeps me going! emoticon My small goal is to finish our closet by Dec. 31. I'm not sure I can make that, but keep at it & enjoying the process. IF I get over whelmed, I just look at what I HAVE accomplished. It is SO fun to see everything at 1 glance.PLUS lot's of donations, hopefully someone else can use what I can't. BE happy & healthy & I will too!

emoticon emoticon 12-13-2020 Yesterday I walked the nature preserve, for my annual Santa 5K, virtually this year. (my 10th year) Usually 5,000 of us, but just me & LITTLE RED. Mom made her & gave her to me several Christmas's ago. She was 1 of Mom's favorites. So I took her, & these photos to share with my Mom! She will love them! The weather was beautiful! Taking it a little easier today! Hope you are having fun! emoticon

12-10-2020 The following is my wish for ALL of Spark People land!

“MY WISH”

May your hopes be as high, as high
as the sky’s highest star!

May your Star be as bright,
as bright as your smile!

May your smile be as warm,
as warm as your place in the sun!

May your place in the sun,
bring you peace!

May the peace in your heart,
give you joy in your heart!

May your heart know the meaning of love.

May the love you will know,
when you know your in love,
be forever, and ever as true,
as the love, I have given to you!

(by Meredith Wilson, from the Musical, “Here’s Love” 1963)

This song was a marionette number performed by Mom & Me, for the first time on Dec 12, 2003. Santa Bear, singing & Mrs. Santa Bear (now a beaver, lol). Appearing in “It’s A Very BEAR-y Holiday”. I want to give everyone reading the above words, this powerful wish.
Love from,
SPARKLINGME176

emoticon emoticon 12-9-2020 I'm listening to Christmas music.So lovely! Wonderful talk with my Mom. We sang carols on the phone. She remembers them. YES! I love her SO very much! It is always a VERY special time for us. Mom & our cast, created a winter wonderland show. Using our marionettes, HUGE 5,000 square foot 2 floors, theater. Even the stage was white & the puppeteers (6 of us) had to wear white shoes & leave them on the stage, before we left. This was in the 1970's. Many of the numbers were from Peggy Lee's, CHRISTMAS CAROUSAL, album. I still use some of that music in my small Christmas show. I have the original Santa's sleight, & Mrs. Claus & several others. But because of the pandemic, not performing it, this year. emoticon Stay safe everyone & try to be happy & spread the JOY! You usually do! & emoticon for what you bring to our planet! emoticon


(This is FROSTY)I am not bragging, just showing you some of my past Christmas!

(FROSTY is a break-away marionette)

emoticon 12-5-2020 So today I was suppose to go on the L.V.Santa 5K, walk. It is virtual this year. I have until Dec. 26 to do it. It is usually today. This is my 10th year. Since I get to pick the location, I will walk at the nature preserve. Next Friday, as I need to be there, anyway. That will give me the time to rest, as I need.

DH & I are doing date night tonight. Pizza, Broccoli, Lucy & the TV show "BULL". Something we enjoy together.

I'm back to finish SP, logging in. BE safe everyone & KNOW I send each & everyone of you love & those who love you, prayers daily! emoticon

(Our back yard sends love & Merry Christmas!)

emoticon 12-2-2020 A catching you up message:

I've been cleaning & being active like crazy! Working & being with DH, (he thanked me today for making THX G special) ; walking; staying safe; talking with Mom; playing with LUCY dog; getting ready for Saturday's "L. V. Santa 5K," walking for charity, I promote Spark People, this is my 13? year & it is virtual, so I will be at my nature preserve! (I have 3 HUGE bags to donate to them, too!) Processing 18# turkey bones, ( turned it into 3 gallons! )Today I will make soup, for DH & LUCY & me, too! I make it very low fat AND so many veggies & whole grain brown rice noodles. A meal in a bowl. I live on soup! Of course will freeze at least 1/2 of it. ALSO, I've been reading & acting on advise from Marie Kondo's book, SPARK JOY. I finished my shoes! I have about 30 pairs. I use them for walking; hiking; dancing; performing; playing, etc. Since they are so hard for me to find, (I wear size 11.5 narrow) I take VERY good care of them, never wear the same shoes day after day. I rotate then.

THX for reading! I'm flying to walk Lucy, work, Zumba DVD & make soup!!! Have a fabulous day everyone! Please re-read my latest blog, if you have time & comment. It is about 30 days worth. I plan on doing a new 1 soon! ALSO, I joined a new team! I LOVE MY BODY! So fun! Hope to see you there! It is only for the month of December. 2BDYNAMIC brought such joy to all of us, check it out!


(Last year, I am in this photo As well as 5,000 other Santa's!)

emoticon 11-27-2020 Mom's friends sent a sweet video of her, from yesterday. She looks so good! I miss her so much. But we did talk on the phone!

Our THXGiving was VERY special. Just the 2 of us, & LUCY, but still so important. I brought out the fine dishes & set the table & made everything so special. DH did a lot of prep work. So different than last year. He was feeling REALLY great! YEAH! He made homemade potatoes. I don't eat very often, but OMG yummy! I put back some of my turkey so I could have seconds! I only went over 300 calories for the day. I have REALLY learned to live this healthy lifestyle! We had strawberry rhubarb pie. YUCK! It reminded me of cooked jam. I've never had before. But DH wanted to try it, as all the other Marie Calendar pies were gone. It's ok. But certainly not worth 400 calories a slice! I'm not complaining, it was a lovely day, sharing with our tiny family!

Have a happy weekend. I did my chair core workout & my arm seems better enough to tackle my shoes, as per SPARK JOY, by Marie Kondo! I'll walk LUCY later, still rather cold outside! Stay safe & remember prayers to you, all daily!

(My ThxG outfit!)







(This was lunch. The dip I made from fat free greek yogart & added toasted onions, DH didn't care for it, I sure did!)

11-24-2020 I've been trying to figure out how to communicate with 1 of our 'helpers' in our yards. I keep coming up against a wall. I may have to find someone new. Makes me sad, because I thought he had SO MUCH potential. I've been grooming him for almost 2 years. How do you deal with people, who just don't listen? Even when you keep trying to get through to them. I'm sure I'm not to be the first person with this problem! Finding someone new, will be VERY hard. Just thought I would ask you how you deal with these situations! SP helps me in so many ways! (I reached my small goal, finally! down 2# this week! NOW to stay there!) emoticon emoticon emoticon

(this is a blouse I am wearing for Thanksgiving. I just put swarovski crystals on it. I felt I needed something fun, even though it is 'just us' the virus is really hard on ALL of us, right?)

(Also, wearing my new Zumba hot pink shoes. These are called Zumba 'Energy Boss', I have 3 pair now. I dream about wearing them & love jumping out of bed, because of them!)

11-23-2020 Yep, today is the last day of pool heater on. It's not warm enough outside to swim. emoticon emoticon But it has been fun! Usually we turn off in late September. I really have nothing to complain about. The high today will be 64, it's the low that takes all the energy to heat. It's going down to 37, tonight.

So that will give me time to SPARK JOY, Marie Kondo & Zumba, more often! Plus do my usual activities, work with DH in his business, clean house & play with LUCY, pup! emoticon Happy Monday, I'm back to it!

('before' sweaters, I finished going through them, yesterday. There was a huge storage bin I had some in, not shown. I donated about 3/4 of them! THX for your continued interest in my process, I keep showing all of you, because you have asked me!)

(donations 50 gallon bag!)

11-21-2020 Thx for your comment about our LUCY dog, turkey hat! If I had a hat like that, I would wear it, even though it is 'just' us. I think it is important to have fun, no matter what. As you might know, I was Supergirl emoticon for Halloween. It was quite an undertaking getting that costume together. (photos in my blog dated 9-26). We didn't have trick or tr-eaters, but I DID go hiking at the nature preserve AND food shopping. It was the photos emoticon I look at & relive the fun. I do not want this year to zoom by without magic, I may create, just because of the horrible virus. (I know 6 people passed because of it) Living in a city that gets about 2,000+ visitors for holidays, hospitals already filled & about 1,000 new cases a day, I emoticon am VERY careful! My DH means the world to me (he's high risk) & I am happy & blessed to be able to keep us safe & secure, in our beautiful paradise home! emoticon IF taking these simple precautions is all I have to do, to do my part in helping my community & our tiny part of our world, then I will do it! No big deal! emoticon

Today I am off to grocery shop for our small Thanksgiving. I will wear my mask & gloves & be smiling through it all, to people I see on the way. They might not see my smile, but my eyes show it. emoticon I am still playing in organizing my 1/2 of our closet. The book SPARK JOY, has REALLY got me going. I have quite a long way to go, I have so many beautiful things. But it feels SO great to be able to see every single thing & know that it fits & is in perfect condition. & if I ever move from this house, it is already packed & ready to move! Haha! Marie Kondo suggests we take ALL of our clothes & put them in a pile, then go through them. I am a performer & have MANY options, so I am only doing type of clothes, at a time.) Have a fabulous weekend! emoticon


(DH & I for Valentine's day, our last time in a restaurant)

(I do A lot of layering, our temps go from 117high down to 30 degrees. Here is a 'before' of my cami's.)

(cami's after, still not sure this is of interest to you, but I add these photos for my 'journal' blog! This is my 'self care' project)

(Lucy looking out her sliding glass door, while I am typing this letter to you!)

(Another long sharing with you! Read if you have time)! 11-18-2020 My experience with Pilates & implementing SP 3,169 days of sparking EVERYDAY! : (I am on the SP Pilates Lovers Team): A friend of mine, Risa, has a studio in CA & a Sheppard Pilates DVD. She physically showed me how to do it, then I took the DVD home & used it for years!. I'm talking about the floor mat exercises. I also dance Zumba. Several years ago I tore my knee, dancing. (It is all good now). So I had to stop everything, even walking, till it healed. (it took almost a year) THAT DVD, changed my life.The inches just pour off of me! I will restart taking it 10 minutes a day, & add on till I can do the whole hour, again. I am still nervous getting up off the floor, so for core strength, I use SP Nicole's 12 minute seated core work out. 2 or 3 times a week. (I WAS doing an hour of Sheppard Pilates, 3 times a week) I am blessed to have a pool & temps went up enough for me to continue swimming, 45 minutes a day. I do a lot of Pilates moves & stretching & yoga positions, in the pool. REALLY feels great! Also, restarting Zumba DVD, at home, but NO leaping! I hike in nature preserve, 1 time a week, for about 3 hours & walk daily with our dog, LUCY. She just turned 16 so she is pretty slow, I don't push her. I also am reading & implementing Marie Kondo's SPARK JOY, method of bringing our life into order. I am starting on my side of the closet. It is helping me SO much. Doing it only when I feel like it. DH & I live on our own schedule, we are VERY lucky to do this! Work from home, etc. (I woke up after 5 hours of sleep, played in the closet & then went back to sleep for 3 more hours. I get 8 hours of sleep, daily). I am taking VERY good care of myself. Don't want to injure myself again! THX for reading! I'm going to post this in my current JOURNAL blog! emoticon

emoticon 11-15-2020 Yesterday was SO special! Lot's of photos of Mom's BDay celebration! She had a wonderful, loving day! More Tiding up from "SPARK JOY" book, Marie Kondo. (I started reading 11-2-2020) AND the pool heater was on, (we thought it was off) SO I got to swim yesterday!!!! emoticon The days are heating back up, this week. So more swimming to come. I was suppose to hike, but the pool is more important! A BIG surprise, makes me so happy! Have a great week!!!! Thinking of you & emoticon for all your good wishes for my mom. She IS extraordinary!











A short story, (read if you want or have the time): 1 of my SP friends commented that I have ALLOT of clothes. I joined SP 3-16-12. Instead of buying junk food & candy, THE SPARK emoticon talks of rewarding ourselves for small goals. I live in an area that has 8 Good Will stores. After the things good through the 'regular' stores & are VERY discounted below 75% off, they then go to our 'outlet' store. (This is not advertised as that kind of store. A friend that works there, told me it was) everything is re-priced at a discount. I would then go on Wednesdays 50% off days, for seniors.I gave myself a $20.00 a month budget. Always coming home with wonderful treasures, clothes that fit my slimming body & made me happy. I had a rule. The thing had to be in perfect condition AND fit. Once in awhile I would buy something that needed a little sewing here & there. Also, costume fabrics for the marionettes, etc. Things changed last year, things were not as discounted, no senior discounts, etc. So I stopped going. Then with the pandemic, they are closed. But that is WHY I have so many clothes & Angels & costume jewelry, fun things the world does not make anymore. When I look at them, I see them as rewards for a great lifestyle. I have gone up 19# in weight & still working on getting back to goal. Releasing them, as Marie Kondo suggests, if they don't bring me joy. & that is what I am doing. I started reading her 2nd book SPARK JOY & it truly is changing my life. (There are a couple of jackets I kept that will never fit, but I think of them as art pieces. Being a tailor, I can appreciate the perfect seams, silk linings, etc. So I hung them in our closet & look at them, as if they are a painting!) Happy organizing everyone!

emoticon emoticon 11-13-2020 I have been processing my life, because of "SPARK JOY" book, by Marie Kondo. It will take me quite awhile to finish. I am still learning, PLUS I have ALLOT of things. emoticon exercise! Up & down the stool. So I started with clothes & shoes. Several people have asked me for photos. It IS hard for me to 'put it out there', but IF it helps anyone, it is worth it to me. Please understand, these things all had a spot until I dumped them on the carpet. Total clear out before putting back. WHAT a mess! I try for doing this activity 3 times a week. I am just enjoying the process of being with my things. (some I made MANY years ago & most came from Good Will, VERY low cost, under $5.00.Except shoes, I buy them new) BUT the parts I have done, feel GREAT! I also cleaned & donated several 50 gallon bags. I plan on giving the jackets to a 'back in the work place' organization. As you can tell, I still have many jackets. I live in an area that needs layering. Jackets are perfect for me, for work in the field, too. I DO believe I will be back in it after the pandemic! BABY steps! emoticon

So I tried to find a pair of slippers in my closet. NOW, what a huge mess! My shoe rack is for high heels, not flat athletic shoes. I looked to buy a new 1, but WAY too much. So I am just going to turn the 1 I have around & the shoes will fall to the wall, instead of on each other! It is hard for me to find shoes that fit, so I don't give them up easily! 11.5 AA narrow! (men's shoes are WAY too wide) I have about 20 pair of them. Sandals & uggs & Zumba &&&& This is WAY beyond 'tiding' up! Haha!

emoticon 11-11-2020 Happy Veterans Day! Thx for your service, keeping our country safe! I would not be here without them!!!! Happy Veterans day! My father; my uncle & DH; love you all! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon (AND to Canada, too!)

Hi! Happy, healthy Sunday! Cold today, 59 right now, noon. Burr, no more swimming! I decided a wet suit wouldn't work. Too cold to get out of it, after a swim! emoticon emoticon
11-8-2020 I am finding Marie Kondo is not talking about de-cluttering. That's why I went for her second book, SPARK JOY, first. It seems to be about what things bring us joy. emoticon emoticon WHY do we have things that don't. Things that makes us feel 'heavy'. She says her method is not about cleaning. That will never get done. But rather Tiding up. Taking each object & 'feeling' it. Does it bring joy OR does it 'do something' as in a screwdriver, that does something that then brings you joy. I'm only in the first few chapters, but it has already changed my life! Our closet was a catch all. Now I am turning it into an lovely sitting space, & dressing room. My friend gave me her mother's (she has passed over) sitting stool, usually goes on the end of a bed. It is a VERY special piece for me. It is in there.Our closet is a small walk-in I share with DH. About 12 feet long & 4 feet wide. It is kind of the same concept I did in my own bathroom. (It is all mine, DH has his own.) It is small! About 6 feet by 8 feet. Tub & Shower combo. I turned it into my 'spa' ocean bathroom. Some of my favorite sparkling clothes, hang in there. All sea related. Angels, mermaids etc. Oil paintings by a friend & of course things I need to get clean. BUT I love going in there! So I am applying my creativity to our closet, too. I'll let you know how it is going. I didn't take 'before' photos, of the area I finished. That won't happen again! I will be draping clothes & scarfs, etc. on spaces that can't have anything on them. Like near the ceiling. Also, I am NOT doing DH things. He wants to do it. Only mine, for now. Our ceiling light might even become a small chandelier, all sparkling. I sure have enough things to make that happen!

I seriously didn't know until I started writing this message, how much it has transformed me. I have so much passion about it, even 'see' myself sitting in there, putting on shoes. ALL things will have a 'home' & bring me happiness! I'm back to playing!

11-7-2020 Today is my last swim, until I buy a wet suit, no kidding! DH fixed the temperature gauge. Heating to 84 degrees, but the temps will go down to 45 tonight. Can't heat that much water, it is 10 feet deep, in parts. I will miss it SO much, looking into buying a wet suit. There is ALLOT to knowing about them. Still studying . I was hoping to hike today, but the 30 MPH winds will keep me from that. Plus the air quality is hazardous!

Happy, healthy Saturday! I have started reading 'Spark Joy' Marie Kondo! & organizing, it IS changing my life, for the good! I've never read anything by her.Started in our closet. Turning it into a lovely dressing room, also! DH & I share it. I just finished the tee shirts, long sleeved & heavy or thin. I have ALLOT of them. Hiking, walking, shopping, etc. Our temps in this area go from 117 highs, to 32 lows. Released a few, but what is left brings me JOY! & that is what it is all about, right? Happy 46th!!!! emoticon emoticon So happy & I can't hide it!!!

Be safe everyone, off to mail sympathy cards, emoticon

emoticon 11-4-2020 Hello! I wrote a new BLOG. PLEASE go back to the one dated 9-26-2020 if you have time! I added to it MANY times, this is my journal space! I also am doing the SP Coach. GREAT program for me! Just like his book, emoticon broken down into a daily effort, check it out!

The pool 'guy' is here now, the thermostat is bad, it IS an old unit, but he is fixing it! We are having a heat wave for a few more days, 85 highs, 65 lows. Unseasonably! But not enough to keep the pool warm. I am so blessed, so no tears here!

(With Mom at our wedding 11-1-1975)

(my favorite photo of DH on our wedding day)

(our family & friends at wedding. Not sure why these photos are so important, but sharing them brings me great joy! We sent out 1,000 invitations, 2,000 people came, what a party! We are still in contact with many of these people!)

(This year celebrating, by ourselves & LUCY, because of COVID)

emoticon 11-3-2020 A VERY busy couple of days! (we pre-voted) Yesterday I just rested after doing many things. Putting away Halloween costume emoticon . Celebrating our 45th emoticon emoticon wedding anniversary; Walking Lucy emoticon ; cleaning house; emoticon hair cut emoticon ; &&&&. Also helping 2 friends with pandemic issues. Just working & trying to keep our world emoticon together, as I am sure YOU are! Also, the heater in the pool went out, so hope the pool guy can fix, today. No swim since Sunday, too cold! I am trying to catch up with all of you, too! Hope this message finds you well! You DO mean ALLOT to me!

(with this strange year I dressed up, anyway! Supergirl, Superman's cousin. She was 'born' 1958!)

emoticon 10-31-2020 I hope THIS Halloween is safe you all of you & your families & friends. I don't really like the goolish part of this time of year. I always make my costumes reflect my love & light for everyone. Today I am hiking in my new SUPERGIRL costume emoticon , (just finished it, needed to keep the tradition going, even in this stupid pandemic, hope I have the courage to wear it, haha!!) Not giving out candy or 'receiving' people, tonight. But DH & I will watch " YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN" by Mel Brooks. (He was a fan of our marionettes, wonderful man!)

Tomorrow, ALL SAINTS DAY, DH & I will celebrate our 45 wedding anniversary emoticon emoticon . It is sapphire. emoticon I guess I will get out my rainbow sapphire bracelet, DH gave me years ago! We are self quarantining, not going out.We REALLY went out last year & did it up BIG. I am so blessed. It's been quite busy around here with work this week, YEAH! & swimming!!!!!

Be safe everyone!!!! Please post photos of your costumes or kiddos costumes, would love to see them!

emoticon 10-29-2020 SP Coach recommends visualizing myself 10 years from now. How I live & feel &&&&. My main goal is to keep being healthy in my lifestyle. Living with DH & enjoying time to pursue whatever I want to do. My life, really is about the same, as now. I'm living an amazing life, today & expect to continue that into the future.

The Dodger's won the series! emoticon YES! My Grandmother dated 1 of them, they all came to my BDay in 1961. Yep! I AM living an amazing life emoticon , so far! Also because of YOU & SP! My health has become a lifestyle. emoticon

Today the temps went back up, enough to turn on the pool, again! I'll get to swim for the next few days! YEAH! emoticon I am SO excited & I just can't hide it!!!!! emoticon


(I KNOW you may have seen this photo, but you can see why I am SO happy to swim!)

emoticon 10-28-2020 I find I am emoticon sparking more, than usual, because of the pandemic. My friendships are deepening as we share, our journey is to health. I feel & believe that is our entire being. SP has & is teaching me that! Today is my 3,148 day of SP everyday. I prayed I would find an answer to my health & 10 minutes later I saw an artificial about SP. It was a sign, for which I will be eternally grateful! emoticon

emoticon 10-26-2020 Hello! Our temps went from 82 high yesterday to 42 high today! BURR. Glad I got 1 last swim in for the season. (my Zumba DVD will replace that 1/2 hour.) The birds sang to me while I swam. I planted flower bushes, in 2005, when the pool went in, for them. The flowers are over the top of our back 7' wall. Hummers & sparrows & flickers & mocking birds &&&.

Today is a work day. I love Mondays. A re-grouping day for the week. My friends, that came here to service a "Celebration Of Life" from their friend who passed from COVID, are home safely, again.They stayed in her home. Hope the virus wasn't inside. We didn't go, still being VERY careful, our county is peaking VERY high right now. DH is high risk. Just taking life life 1 day at a time. Blessed to have a paradise home to live in. Stay safe everyone!

(just to bring you a smile, my Fairy Granddaughter, yesterday, haven't met her yet)

10-21-2020 I am happy to say, my friend with COVID, is better. YOUR prayers & support are helping! THX so much! I am trying to just stay balanced & do my 'regular' things. Walked LUCY, hope to swim soon, temp dropped, but still ok to be outside! I LOVE nature. My pool is my meditation sanctuary. It helps me 'float' away my problems. DH & LUCY & I are doing good. Happy for it! emoticon

The Lake of the Stone Men & Women (written about a lake called Stoneman)

Life teems, as our team,
graces the edge of the universe.
We are like stone men and women watching life;
flying, zooming, jumping, swimming, soaring,
crawling, frolicking, galloping and dancing.

Clouds crying tear drops,
the voluminous liquid descends, pours and
drenches, transforming snow melt,
feeding springs in autumn, secreting life.
The fresh amber water, home to trillions,
seen and unseen, flows through ancient volcanic tubes.

All the birds, in an instant, hearing the voice of God
in unison, excitedly swarm into a cosmic ballet,
on the wave and breath of the Goddess,
through millions of plants and Ponderosa Pines,
where no human has gone before.

The Seekers rejoice in Thanksgiving,
reflecting nymph like sacred love,
they have waited centuries for us to come and retreat,
we are the stewards of this holy sacred circle sanctuary,
at the heart of the earth,
where we all finally realize the divine plan.

10-25-2005

THX SP for your support. emoticon So wonderful to hear that there ARE people returning to our world, now! YEAH! There are SO many in my area that do not believe it even exists! They are opening Hover Dam, are they nuts? More unprotected visitors, hospitals will be full again. Can't wait till we get some normalcy back into our lives! In the mean time, I'm doing LOT's of meditations & spreading the joy where I can!

10-13-2020 Again, emoticon , I am SO amazed at your response to my life's activities! Your encouragement helps make me stronger!!!!! Seriously couldn't do it with out you! emoticon So in honor of these 2 awards,(NSV) I am going to buy another pair of Zumba shoes. My latest pair, I dream about wearing! "Zumba Energy Boss", absolutely perfect for me! Wild colors, but fun, right? emoticon I'm dancing to DVD.

Today LUCY got groomed, they come to us now. She is getting too old to have to wait in a shop for hours. (She will be 16 next month) It only takes an hour & it's all about HER! Also, DH turned on the heater in the pool, SO much better! Now I can swim when I want, I am such a lucky woman! emoticon emoticon

emoticon 10-10-2020 Last night was date night. We had a lovely dinner from Olive Garden, (enough for 6 meals, dinner another day), & watched DAVE, a movie made in 1993, about the presidents 'double' . We REALLY enjoyed it AND our time together! We make Friday, date nights, so no matter what is going on, we can remember to be with each other & share the love. We have been doing it for many years. Maybe that's why we will be celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary, Nov. 1, All Saints Day! Yesterday was a 10 (out of 10) day for me. Stellar! emoticon I am so blessed!

The air quality has stopped my hike today, it is just too smokey. I WILL take Lucy emoticon out for a quick spin, in 'her' park. They just watered, so it will be ok for her. Lot's of oxygen from the trees, too. So it looks like Zumba & walking DVD's for me today. Still want to swim, keeping fingers crossed the air will get better, later today.

( a few years ago, haha!)

emoticon 10-9-2020 Have a happy weekend, THX for the photos! I hope to swim today, air quality moderate, (fires still in CA) so I will go in with mask on & not go under, in a bit, after my SP Nicole seated core workout, (fun, right, Miller?) It is also date night, movie & Olive Garden, take out. I FINALLY finished my taxes & got them to 'my guy'. Due Oct. 15. They are pretty easy, but still I should have gotten them done faster. It's been a VERY strange year! I hope to hike to hike tomorrow. It all depends on the air quality.

emoticon 10-8-2020 I am inspired by SP, so much! Day 3,128 I am doing SP Nicole's 12 minute seated core workout.Several times a week. Feels fabulous. emoticon I've been restarting my Zumba dvd's & doing ok. emoticon Just no leaping, miss my classes, actual people! I am still swimming, emoticon when the air quality is ok. Smoke from CA has been pretty bad, off & on. & when temps are warm enough. Going down to 93 high & 62 low. The pool is whatever the temp is outside at night. That might seem high for you, but perfect swimming weather. We are unusually warm, right now. LUCY gets her walks, daily. I am keeping VERY active, just finding new ways to move my body. I LOVE hearing the birds in our yards, in the mornings. I feed them through growing flowers & pomegranates. I have a bird bath, but they like the pool, more.I am also, eating VERY high quality foods, emoticon I sure am pouring my heart out, emoticon I'm off to my day, IN-Joy yours! emoticon

10-6-2020 Another busy day, hair cut was fun! I hope to swim, before the wind brings in more smoke.

emoticon to today 10-3-2020 Good morning! The smoke has retreated back to CA, so S. NV is breathable, again! Yeah! I plan on hiking in the Nature Preserve, masked of course. Need to feel nature & the wild life, it's been several weeks, because of smoke. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon (ALL of these critters are there, plus MANY more). Sending as much joy as I can to everyone! Try to find your happy place & I will too! emoticon

emoticon 9-29-2020 Yesterday was a fabulous day! My nephew, who I haven't seen for 15 years, moved to our town, with his wife & 2 yrs old baby. I am ecstatic! We are still social distancing, so can't hug them, but when smoke clears, we might go for a hike together!

I have been having some truly amazing days, lately! Also, Mom's new care givers are doing GREAT!!!! I'm off to Zumba, walk LUCY & swim! Then back to work! Hope your days are going VERY well for you, too! emoticon

emoticon 9-28-2020 emoticon for your wonderful support of my SP 'journey'. You voted for me! Your comment on my latest blog, warms my heart! emoticon I send the good ((((((((vibes)))))))) back to you! emoticon I would not be this healthy without you or Spark people, no kidding! emoticon Let's continue on, to health! emoticon emoticon

Today I started Leslie's, "Walk off the pounds", DVD. 30 minutes! FUN! I wore my new Zumba shoes, I actually dream about wearing them. They feel so wonderful! After I walked our sweet LUCY for 30 minutes, I felt I needed more, she is slowing down. Then I got to swim, 35 minutes. The air is clear enough, from smoke in CA. (By the way, if you are a wine drinker, I would suggest if you drink central CA wines, you get some soon. 2 major wineries burnt up. emoticon )

So my 'Baby step goal for this week is to release weight. I'm hoping to fit back into my Fairy God Mother dress. Last time I wore it was 10-31-2015 at goal. I can do anything I put my mind to. Such a strange year for ALL of us! I wake up in the morning trying to figure out how to get cardio in.I usually walk at least an hour everyday. I AM figuring it out! Too much smoke to always go outside. I miss my hikes in our local nature preserve. But things could be WAY worse. I am living a thriving life, emoticon emoticon & that was my goal when I joined Spark people. There use to be a Spark People on line store, when I joined 3-16-2012. Here's some photos. "Be the health you want, with what you have to work with, & I will too!" (a quote by me)



I love Spark People!

New blog today! Please read & reply! Here's a re-cap:
emoticon 9-25-2020 I am happy to Walk Lucy outside, air quality ok! (index 71 smoke from CA, I bless the firefighters, ALWAYS!) & I re-measured me, down several inches & 200 fitness, daily since January 2020! Glad to see it! Inspired by SP coach this is Week 3. day 3,116 of Sparking DAILY!

My DH blood test was excellent, my Mom has new caregivers, & LUCY dog is doing good, at 15 years old! I am VERY blessed, even with ALL the things we are ALL going through on this planet, right! 1 baby step at a time!

emoticon 9-25-2020 Hello, wonderful team mates!
It's Friday, yesterday was fabulous being outside. Today, not gonna happen. Hazardous air. So No swim or Walk LUCY. I'll do Pilates & Zumba DVD. Might try Leslie walking on you tube. Never done her. I try for 200 exercising minutes & 200 SP points, a day. Hard to reach exercise with out being able to go out side. emoticon
Happy Friday everyone! Let's keep 'playing' at our goals & make them fun!

9-22-2020 Happy Tuesday & Autumn or Spring first! emoticon emoticon
The wind from the Bobcat fire in CA, brings us unhealthy air today, so I will do my DVD's SP Nicole 12 minute seated core workout, LOVE the back stretches & my Zumba DVD! Our LUCY dog is not happy, plus no swimming. SAD face! But my world is fabulous & I am so blessed to have DH, LUCY & our lovely paradise home! I KNOW the air will clear 1 day soon, because the fire fighters are working SO hard. Donate to them, if you can! I did! I grew this sunflower for this photo, in 2003!

emoticon 9-13-2020 The smoke has died down a little bit here in Southern Nevada. So I can go swimming today, as I did yesterday, Lucy is loving her walks again sky is blue and I'm thrilled for it. Still sending prayers to my fairy goddaughter's in Oregon, Washington, and California. They've been locked inside not because of Covid but because of smoke the last three weeks. So many prayers needed, right now!

I took these photos, this morning of a beautiful snapdragon that popped up through the middle of a little palm tree I just transplanted. We have 19 palm trees (Queen Ann's, Bottle & the 'regular type in our backyard.) emoticon They are so special, also 2 pomegranates emoticon that the birds share with us! I feed them this way! Humming birds love them!

9-12-2020 On a happy note, my mom 91 yrs. beginning dementia has new caregivers at her home. It happened last night. It's been very hard not knowing what was gonna happen with her. But she's stable, the house is fixed thx to last lady. (Mary Ann was there seven months) it’s a couple who Have been elder caregivers, before, love gardening, Mom on a half an acre. Have their own money, just want a lovely home to live in, & help where they can! Yoga teacher, has already met mom & she loves them both! With her being 5 hours away, plus the pandemic & my responsibilities at home, it's been hard, I can't visit her. We pay where we can for her, help that way. I talk on phone several times a week & eMail daily. We all truly blessed for this miracle!

9-10-2020 emoticon 3,100 days of Sparking EVERYDAY! emoticon for me! I'm also following Spark Coach, almost 2 weeks now. I listen to THE SPARK on cd's, almost daily since I started, so pretty much know what is being offered, but nice to see in different format! (Have you checked into it? REALLY great) I love this beautiful Thursday!!! Sky clear enough of smoke from another state, to be outside & Swim for over an hour, walk LUCY dog for 35 minutes, garden 120 minutes, housework & now work! YEAH! PLEASE keep your prayers coming for all of the west coast. Many of our SP friends live there. This is the ONLY area in the world that the massive Red Woods, emoticon live. So many gone. emoticon climate change, for sure! emoticon emoticon
