It was a lovely 3-day weekend, but I didn't do anything I said I was going to do yesterday. It was a beautiful day once the rain left and I just enjoyed having a day off. The only thing I did was get the garbage and recycling out to the curb. ... Read more

Today is a day set aside as a National Holiday to remember and be thankful for those who gave their all so we might live. It is raining, but now that the garage at the old house is rearranged, I can pull in to load the car without getting ... Read more

I never did come back and post a blog yesterday like I told myself I would. I didn't remember until after I had gone to bed. I must post in the morning when I'm Sparking, or it won't happen. Yesterday was a beautiful morning and early after... Read more

It has been a strange week, but it will be over soon. Unfortunately, next week will be very wet. It's grey out now and supposed to stay cloudy all day. Starting tomorrow, thunderstorms in the PM, then one cloudy day, then 5 days of isolated or s... Read more

Spark Coach lesson for today was about Moderation. I don't believe in it and I'll tell you why. Not everything can be taken in moderation - what about arsenic or strychnine. Some foods are just as bad for your health over the long run. So you wa... Read more

Hoping the weather person was right and it doesn't rain today - supposed to be partly cloudy for the next 3 days, I want to get the rugs from the basement onto the back deck and hang them on the railings so they can finish drying. They've been d... Read more

Thank you all for your concern, but there was not a flood in my basement - there was seepage. The water wicked into the rugs down there, but nothing was damaged since we got everything off the rugs as soon as we noticed the water. I got a wet-va... Read more

Well, that was fun - NOT! It has rained so much here that yesterday evening my street was under water and the one around the corner was even deeper. My son freaked out when some of it started seeping into the basement apartment, We had to move a... Read more

I was really hoping to get more stuff out of the old house today, but it's raining again. The only day all week I have time to go and I can't. Hopefully, the coming week will be better and I'm not stuck late at work multiple nights. Ah, well, at... Read more

As I was typing the word "Saturday" an old song popped into my head - "Saturday, In the park, I think it was the 4th of July..." It's only May, but it IS Saturday. Now, was that Chicago, ELO, or Yes? I know it was NOT Elton John. The song is fro... Read more

Normally, yay, but I will have a very long day tomorrow starting at noon until whenever the release has been certified as good. Yesterday I managed to eat on-plan completely for the first time in quite a while - no cheating at all. There's ... Read more

Woke to a thunderstorm. It doesn't seem to be raining hard or even windy, but very dark out and I can hear the thunder grumbling off and on and the occasional flash of lightning. I was right about the long day at work yesterday and there i... Read more

The sun is already up and I have a long day working (from home) in front of me today and probably for the rest of the week. I do have Saturday morning off as the release I have to work doesn't start until noon. I do like working from home becaus... Read more

My mini vacation is over and it's back to work today for a 5 day work-week as the team I am on is responsible for the software release this Saturday. I'm glad the grey morning yesterday turned into a partly sunny day. I didn't get quite as much ... Read more
Monday and Day 5 of my 5-day weekend

My son was happy to get the set of metro-shelves that had been in his bedroom at the old house, but he wants shelf-liners for it so he can put books on without worrying they will fall through the bars. He probably needs some bookends, too, since... Read more
