I have to laugh. I put sand between the bricks on my patio, and the sparrows are taking a bath in it. There's sand all over the place. Oh well, I can always go to ACE and buy more. After all, God's creatures need a place to preen. If my back... Read more

I'm excited about joining a chat room, because I get to "talk" with a group of wonderful ladies. Both my morning and afternoon commutes to work were very speedy. CTA gets high marks from me today. To all my co-workers, I passed on an ... Read more

As the result of the Starz series, the Outlander novels are all the rage now. Almost 20 years ago, I read the first four novels. I enjoyed them and was delighted to discover that I had "The Fiery Cross" tucked away. I'm looking forward to rea... Read more

Letting go of the small stuff makes life so much easier. What's even better is that my definition of "small stuff" keeps getting broader. Aggravation is so over rated. I've come to appreciate the effort it takes to work up a sweat at the ... Read more

I've always been pretty short on self-esteem so finding the good stuff can often be a struggle. Today in the push up position, I did a set of TRX planks to pikes. This is not an easy exercise, so I have to say that I'm proud of myself. I ... Read more

I am grateful for the tomatoes that are ripening in the garden. I picked one yesterday. I am thankful for the car I drive. It gets me where I need to go, keeps me entertained with a radio and CD player, and warms me in the winter and cool... Read more

Turned on the A/C for the first time this year. Yes, it was that muggy, so I was glad to have it. It was actually rather pleasant in the morning, so I cut the grass after my strength class. While surfing through "On Demand", I spotted... Read more

I went to a really, really, really large garden center in our area and bought some perennials - Shasta daisies, coneflowers, and balloon plants. I hope whatever critter that has been snacking on the Asian lilies stays away from the new plants. ... Read more

I finished reading my very first Nicholas Sparks novel. Chick lit written by a guy; I must say it's a pretty weird concept. The book is very cliched with no surprises. With so many changes in point of view, it wasn't well edited either. Out ... Read more

This afternoon I sat through the last of a series of webinars. Yippee!!!! I'm so glad I'm done. My poor little banged up toe is feeling much better. I can wear my sandals again. Yippee!!! I'm thankful that have decent writing skill... Read more

Gosh darn!!! It is very humid!!! My shower felt terrific. The wind is picking up, so I'm hoping we don't have any damaging storms. I made Summer Black Bean and Pasta Salad, and it's really good. It includes avocado, poblano pepper, red... Read more

I'm glad I checked my work email. There was a "yikes" transmission that needed my immediate attention. My boss likes to tell people what they want to hear - even when he's wrong. Sigh. I'm grateful I have a part-time job. I'm grateful I... Read more

Although I had to swat away pesky bugs, I managed to get the grass cut. My favorite instructor led the strength class today. Kristin is just the best!!! Yesterday, I crawled under the utility tub to get to the dryer vent to pull out l... Read more
