emoticon 7-2-21 I've been walking, cleaning house & swimming, most of the morning. Now at computer & Sparking, working & getting ready for date night. The movie we will probably watch is THE BIRDS, Hitchcock. Haven't seen is quite awhile. My friends FIL, worked on it. Also PANDA EXPRESS. I LOVE their 'greens' & string bean chicken. ! serving feeds me for 3 dinners! DH loves their walnut shrimp. (I do not like fish, of any kind, usually) Plus SP Nicole's' seated core workout. Tomorrow is hike in nature preserve. Tuesday is my BDay, emoticon we are going to get together at a restaurant with DH Sister & family. Our first time since the pandemic started. We will celebrate DH BDay, too. We couldn't go because of his retina exam. Should be fun. A little scary for me, though. I'll wear my mask for a little security. (Happy almost BDay MILLER-S on the 9th! emoticon )

We will stay home for the 4th. The illegal fireworks have been going off, for about a week. (we have millions of Vet's in town, with PTSS. I do wish the fireworks didn't go off.) They land on the house & in the pool. Police can not keep up with all of them. So we will be CAREFUL! The strip is expecting about 300,000 people. YIKES! emoticon We do not go near there! Too bad, cause the hospitals are full right now with covid patients. People think, since they are vaccinated, they can stop wear masks (indoors) & keeping clean & 6' apart. So after the HUGE opening of the latest & new casino, first 1 in 10 years, MANY people flew in for the opening. Are still here, sick. Probably more info than you need, sorry about that!

I'm back to it! Happy safe weekend everyone! emoticon
PS... Remember I asked everyone how to keep wild cats from pooping in our yard? Turns out the pine cones is what worked the best! emoticon We can get millions of them in the park behind our home! YEAH! THX for your help! emoticon

(Fairy God Son with his friends & cake. Again YIKES! Too much sugar! Candy filled cake, what no chocolate? He loved the gift we gave him)

So much! See my latest blog for photos! I'm off to PILATES.... now!

emoticon 5-21-21 Yesterday I made a HUGE batch of Veggie-Chicken soup! 14 big servings. Froze a lot of it, single servings. Easy to grab & go on a trip & heat defrosted when I arrive to the Inn at home too, of course! Broccoli; celery; carrots; peas; green beans; yellow squash; yams; potatoes; cauliflower; cabbage; little onion; Italian seasons; liquid smoke; 21 salute, (salt free seasonings from Trader Joe's). Oh and chicken, haha! emoticon How are YOU doing? I LOVE SP land!

(FOOD art, just for fun!)

Hi! So sorry to take an extended break. I've found it's incredibly draining to try to keep a team active. I guess I will just respond to those who come when they come.

I've been spending a lot of time on curriculum development and lesson planning, both for dance and Pilates. So I've been rather busy with that.

I hope everyone is well! Let me know what you've been up to and how you're moving it.

Karen

emoticon 3-26-21 Day 2 of beginning Sheppard Pilates!!!!! This time 30 minutes & rest afterwards, on computer. WOW! Intense! But feels good! The saying' use it or lose it' comes to mind! My goal is 3 times a week for the entire hour. (2 years ago I could do it 3 times a week, Intermediate & 1 hour. PLUS my hip measurement was 4" less! LOL! ) BUT today is emoticon steps! My body remembers from 2 years ago, (after healing knee from ZUMBA jumping), but my legs didn't want to move that way. Need LOT's of stretching & focus, especially in my knees. emoticon emoticon because I AM! THX for the en-couragement! emoticon

Date night tonight. I have been REALLY focusing on EVERY bite, down 2.5 #'s from last Friday, my weigh in day! emoticon So I am making in crock pot, my pasta sauce with turkey meat balls & pumpkin & spinach, over Cauliflower. We each get 1/4 of the cauliflower, (it is the most beautiful 1 we have ever had! Only $2.50 at Sam's club!) no pasta. DH favorite! emoticon Have a GREAT weekend when it comes! Hope to hike tomorrow! emoticon depends upon weather. We had blessed rain last night & 35 MPH winds..... zoom!

emoticon 3-25-21 yesterday I re-started my Sheppard Pilates DVD. 2 yrs. ago I hurt my knee JUMPING in Zumba. emoticon I had a real fear emoticon of not being able to get off the floor, or worse, hurting myself again. I have been doing SP Nicole's 12 minute core workout, 3 times a week. BUT, my measurements (I measured myself today, could be a prettier picture! emoticon emoticon ) prove I need the floor exercises, too. I have been walking a lot more, instead. I know my heart & legs are strong. But for me, NOTHING helps my measurement like this Matt program. SO I hope to get back into it, 3 times a week. At this point I am only up to 22 minutes. But the full hour is in sight! I will take it VERY easy & not stress my body. I had not planned on sharing this with you, but it will help with my en-couragement! It WILL take courage on my part. I'm off to it, thx for reading! THX for your support! emoticon

Hi! I'm great, hope you are too!

emoticon 3-15-21 When I went to Costco, I saw plants, but they are REALLY not for our desert area. Hydrangeas etc. Also VERY expensive compared to home depot. I'm starting to find, that Costco's prices are going up. A small pre-packed salad was $7.00! I can get the exact same salad at Sam's club for $2.50. So I am learning to be even a more cautious shopper, there. IF an item has a coupon, then the costs are REALLY low. I check on line before I go.

But it WAS a fun weekend! Playing with LUCY, hiking, time with DH as his neck starts to heal for reaction from vaccine #1, March 2. . I was hoping to get outside today but winds are 55 MPH. Just too much for LUCY emoticon & me. DH & I watched the Grammy's. Loved most of it. Taylor Swift, her nature theme was wonderful! My cup of tea. emoticon Didn't care for the ladies humping the stage. Strange for me. Are we the only 1's who feel that way? Also, there was no Rock & Roll artists, or Classical music, etc. Over all pretty good show considering the pandemic, of 2020! Have a GREAT week, everyone! I'm back to work!

(photo I took on Saturday's hike, pretty, right?

Hey everybody! How is everyone doing? We're two and half months into the new year. How are you doing on your goals? It's not too late to change directions if needed to make your goals a reality this year. Drop a line in here and let me know how you are doing.

emoticon 1-19-2021 I make our LUCY chicken soup. She is 16 yrs. now & getting harder for her to chew. I have to be careful, she gets very loose stool if I give her to many veggies. I make a huge pot for all of us, take her's out, then add the spices for us. Works for us! emoticon I'm off to hug her! emoticon We took her out for an adventure, yesterday. I had to pick her up to get her into the car, but she had a BLAST smelling new areas! We all loved getting out. DH took his scooter & I of course walked. We haven't been out together as a family for about 2 years. It felt GREAT to be together sharing nature! We had planned to go to a very special park, in our town, but streets were closed. So up the mountain we went! SO BEAUTIFUL! Have a fabulous Tuesday & I will too! Off to Pilates, laundry, vacuuming, cleaning, etc.! I love our home & am VERY blessed to have it! emoticon

Doing some form of Pilates 30 minutes a week!

emoticon 1-5-2021 I finally got back into our walk in closet & Tidied up, as per Marie Kondo. I had hoped to finish for the New Year..... but I am still working on it! (about 2 hours, yesterday emoticon ) 1/2 way done, now! This time I did DH shoes & on 'his' side. Throw blankets, etc. Donated quite a bit. Also broke down empty boxes I was saving for humidifier, etc. (It broke years ago). I now have room, WOW! Space emoticon , I wonder what I will put in it, haha! Marie suggests we take before & after photos. YIKES! I started this HUGE project 11-6-2020. I would not have believed it if I hadn't taken photos. Seriously! Be happy & healthy & JOY filled, I will too! emoticon emoticon

Happy New Year!

I'm still visiting family. We have been super careful making sure we haven't come in contact with anyone with Covid, so as not to expose my father (who has a weakened immune system) or my sister (who is pregnant). We've been spending a lot of time together, mostly playing board games.

Here's hoping 2021 is a fantastic year!

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!

I know this year has been hard on everyone. And I think a lot of people are realizing the importance of personal relationships.

Today I taught dance classes, in which we did a showcase for the parents. Parents were allowed in the studio to see a pared down version of class to see what their children have been working on this year. Then the kids could share pre-packaged goodies with one another. No food was allowed to be opened in the studio. At least clean-up was easy. Although I guess it just changed from sweeping and mopping up food to sanitizing chairs.

We get the next 2 weeks off. The hubs and I will be going to visit family over Christmas. We may also visit some friends in Florida that we haven't seen in over 2 years. Luckily, we live in an area of the country where travel is still possible. And we'll be traveling by car, so there aren't the risks that are associated with flying.

I hope for you, too! Karen!

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.

I met with the owner of a local Pilates studio (the only one in the area) and I may be getting some teaching hours soon!

@SPARKLINGME176 Have you ever heard of Declutter 365? There's a lady who runs this challenge every year. The idea is that you work on an area for 15 minutes each day and by the end of the year, you've done your whole house.

We finally had a cold front come in and knock out the warm weather. I walked this morning. I got a chance to talk to my mom this afternoon. Then I taught dance.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

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

12-9-2020 I have organized & donated sleepwear!

(my sleepwear before)

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 skys 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, Heres 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 Its A Very BEAR-y Holiday. I want to give everyone reading the above words, this powerful wish.
Love from,
SPARKLINGME176

@SPARKLINGME176 I love seeing the pictures of the marionettes! They are wonderful!

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is having a great week! I babysat today. We had a lot of fun. Plus I got to watch the new Mulan movie, which was really good. Tomorrow I am supposed to substitute teach 4 dance classes for one of my coworkers who is waiting for COVID test results for her children.

I'm going to share some of my Christmas memories with all of you. I hope they bring you joy! That is the point!

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 we made him 1969) I am not bragging, just showing you some of my past Christmas!

(FROSTY is a break-away marionette)

(Mom performing "SNOWY" his ice skates are candy canes! made in 1970)

(this is POPO, the first marionette Mom made 1958)

(Mrs. Beaver Claus made 1970 & re-made 2017)

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!

Happy Tuesday and Happy December! December is my favorite month! I love Christmas, and my birthday is this month. Today, I taught dance and walked laps around inside my house. We had a cold front come through this week and the wind was pretty intense today. So I decided to not freeze outside. I hope everyone is having a great week!

@BROOKLYN_BORN I'm such a fan of making baby steps. A big overhaul is so likely to derail us quickly. But one small change at a time is much easier to incorporate into our lives. Keep up the great work!

Happy Tuesday! I had to buy a new power cord for my computer today. It suddenly stopped charging when plugged in, but I didn't know it until the battery was completely gone. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

Brook, I think how you are doing it, is perfect. When I got up to an hour, 3 times a week, it STILL was not easy! That's how you know it is working, right? I'm at 12 minutes 3 times a week!

emoticon

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! 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!)

I did 20 minutes of my beginners videos this afternoon. I'm aiming for twice or 3 times per week. I can do everything now but still don't find it "easy" or ready to move on to increase time or new movements. Still, I have to remind myself that 1 month ago the "hundred" was closer to the "twenty" for me. Not discouraged. I am the "Queen of Gradualism" I WILL improve.

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 11-3-2020 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!)

It's definitely a good idea to visualize what you'd like your life to be like in 5 years and also in 10 years. It helps to clarify what we need to do in the present.

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 heater on a bit, 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!)

Pilates yesterday, fun!

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 -FULL

(Last years Halloween costume, performing with HAYFEVER, a marionette Mom & DH & I made in1969!)

I miss the snow from time to time that we got in Colorado. It's finally starting to cool off some here. Highs are in the upper 60s and low 70s. And it's still humid.

emoticon 10-26-2020 Hello! Our temps went from 82 high yesterday to 42 high today! winds 20 MPH. 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

YES! I am blessed! Still doing SP Nicole seated core workout. But as the temps get colder, I plan to restart my Sheppard Pilates DVD. It REALLY takes it out of me, even when I can do 3 times a week. But the changes in my body are SO worth it. Hope you are having fun, too! emoticon

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

What beautiful flowers @SPARKLINGME176 !

I've been working on completing a dance curriculum, or at least the first phase. I'm hoping to be able to sell it online to other dance instructors who don't have the time or inclination to do it for themselves. It's been consuming a lot of my time as I'd like to get the first phase done and get it up.

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week!

We did everything possible to avoid possible exposure. My dad has leukemia and my uncle has diabetes, so we didn't want to risk exposing them to the virus.

It seemed many of the places that were closed are closed for good. It was sad to see.
