Hi, I'm so overwhelmed by Spark right now. Well, to be truthful it's not Spark itself but my own inactivity. I am actually debating deleting all of my friends and letting you guys choose me. That sounds selfish, doesn't it? It's just that I... Read more

How cold is it? (Pictures)
Thursday, January 02, 2014      24 comments

Hi! How cold is it you ask? Well let's just say that's mighty nippy out. Since we are an island (in the North-Atlantic, mind you) we have to manufacture our own power which is all fine and good until the temperature dips low. There is a pr... Read more
Fast Forward to New Year's Eve 2014 - what will you see?
Wednesday, January 01, 2014      10 comments

Hi, Happy New Year! I've always had a love-hate relationship with New Year's Eve. When John and I were first dating I had bought a strapless black velour dress, velour high heels (this was the late 80's!) and a pair of black stockings that ... Read more

Tuesday, December 31, 2013      11 comments

Hi, Well, today is my third day for just tracking my food without measuring it, etc.. I'm not finding stressful and three days is half-way to my longest streak of ever tracking my food on Spark. Yes, I know it will be hard once I start... Read more

Hi! Thanks to all who took the the time to read my "venting" blog about my mom and our weird relationship. Somebody asked how old she is (74) so I have to get it through my thick skull that a) it's her problem, b) people like me despite wha... Read more

Thursday, December 26, 2013      28 comments

Happy Boxing Day, I'm so glad that stores are not allowed to be open here on Boxing Day so that most non-essential workers get a second day off. If I had to near a store right now I think I would curl up and die. I'm sure some of you are pl... Read more
