2B the photos are amazing! Such joy in a pot!

emoticon 6-14-21 Yep, it's 115 degrees right now. At 3 pm. emoticon going up to 117 today. YIKES! I went for my walk 2 miles & swim before 7 am. Then off to hair cut. I like it short. Came out 'sassy'! Been trying to peek at the google maintenance team I joined. REALLY need more time to even start to figure it out. I need to work today & get to SP. DH Birthday is Wednesday. I'm taking him to get his retinas checked. In the old days, I would have gone camping with him, LOL! We are meeting his sister & nephew for a birthday gathering on Thursday. It's been over 19 months since we have seen them! Have fun everyone! Stay safe & KNOW you are doing a GREAT job with your lives!

I now understand, 2B thx!!!!

Posted on my latest blog:

emoticon 6-12-2021 In response to 2BDYNAMIC's last blog:

I've never heard of the 5 stages of grief.... but I have had them all, over SP closing. Our precious LUCY dog passed over in April.... still VERY sad. SP gave me the courage to move forward. I became much MORE involved in SP with the pandemic. It was my safety net.

Like you I have made many SP friends. Some I have invited to my 'real' eMail. (I won't check it everyday) Now, I am looking at SP land as graduation. emoticon Today is 3,375 (I joined just after you, March 16, 2012) I have been here EVERYDAY. Never missed a day, as that was my promise to myself. I will be here till the last day, to help support my friends, if they need it. My life's mission is to bring JOY to the world. SP helped me share that! emoticon emoticon I keep thinking maybe 'someone' could buy SP from Chris. After all he started SP with the money he gained from selling his little business to eBay. I don't blame him for not having the money to keep it open. There are several projects I can not afford, either. He-you-everyone helped my life- my health more than I can ever say. I am so thankful & grateful for all of you! When Aug. 17 comes, I am going on 'summer' vacation. Just like the song says.... "Schools out for summer". I do not know what I will do in the autumn, but I am sure it will be fun. NOT being tied down to checking in everyday, will be a relief for me. Stressing always trying to find internet access. I can even go camping in the mountains if I want! I have joined the google maintenance

group.groups.google.com/g/maintaining-we
ight

But haven't learned how to use it, yet. Taking time to be 'me'. & continue SP.

THX for this, the last blog, 2B. I love you! Have a happy life & I will too!
My quote, I wrote about 2016 "Be the health you want with what you have to work with & I will too!" emoticon I am off to hike, I CAN because of SP & the lessons I have learned here!

How & why are you saving your blogs? Just curious. I haven't considered that....

Just wondering, WHY are you deleting your blogs? won't they just disappear? Like SP?

emoticon 6-11-21 Photo from my past (2017) promoting SP, at Santa run, I walked it 12 times! & will continue this year, too! Promoting a different organization. Hope you are all ok. I DO wish 'someone' would buy SP from Chris......

Jan, thank you for this team, I only wish I had met your sooner on SP! All the best to you and your hubby as you both go forward; like you too much time has been spent on Spark. I realize that I now have the knowledge to remain healthy and lean so come August I will spread my wings and fly out of here. For all of you: consider watching the lovely movie "Penguin Bloom", a story of rebirth against all odds and enjoy this music from a chorus that a dear friend in Ontario belongs to. www.youtube.com/watch?v=1u4S

I've joined 4A on google & am also adding friends names to my 'real' email list. If you want to join!

6-6-21 ABOUT SP closing. (check out WATERMELLEN blog about it with links & everything! I'm not on FB at all. Can't stand the drama. BUT I am open to learning how we can continue to learn from each other. . Now that we are going 'real' let's be happy we had this time to get it together, before the final day! I have always kept a paper log, of my monthly weight & measurements. I'm going to make a chart of my "other goals" that are appropriate on this my 3,369 days of SP EVERYDAY! That streak is huge for me!!!! Started March 16, 2012. I also LOVE SP Nicole's 12-minute seated core work out. I might make a list of those movements, so I can keep up with that. I also have several SP DVD's. That's also, how I follow Sheppard Pilates.

SP changed my life. I am SO much healthier because of it. It is the friends I have made & the blogs that I will miss the most! BUT Chris has to do what he feels he CAN do. I'm still in shock, so I will wait a few days before I start anything, new. But I am sure as new ideas emerge, we will all be glad we had the extra time to prepare. They could have just closed off, today! Right?

Until August, I am 'here' for you!

SparklingMe,
I don't know how to keep feral cats out of your garden, but I have had that smell in my flower beds and it's yucky! Too bad! I know you can buy a liquid at nurseries that is similar to fox urine. It might even be fox urine.That might be a deterrent.

Question?=
emoticon Hello, wonderful SP friends! emoticon 6-2-21 Does anyone know how to keep feral cats out of my garden? Since LUCY dog passed over, emoticon they think of our yard as their kitty box! I've tried coffee grounds & now powdered cayenne pepper. I heard they both work. NOT so with coffee grounds! I try to be as natural as possible. Photo today of Fairy Garden, after weeding & cat poo removal. Pee U!
Hope you are doing great! emoticon

May your Monday bring you all the joy your heart can hold! emoticon I am being thankful to all who helped make my life FREE! emoticon emoticon I just got in from a long walk, before heat hits, 100 today. PLUS, Swimming is in my future! emoticon I DID swim for 40 minutes, yesterday. Got REALLY tired. It's been many months. I just thought I could start where I left off.

emoticon DH didn't feel up to grilling yesterday. Better today so we are off to it! emoticon emoticon Asparagus with parm cheese, pineapple, chicken sausages, chicken thighs, & watermelon for desert! I DID buy a pre frozen lemon meringue pie. emoticon NOT our usual brand. We tried a little last night, YUCK! SO sweet, 67 grams of carbos, 1/4 of it was sugar. I didn't read label. Its going back to the store! YEAH for me!

I truly hope you are all doing REALLY great! Happy Memorial Day for those who celebrate. BUT, don't we ALL celebrate our freedoms? emoticon emoticon

Ruthie, sending hugs, to you! I'm not of FB, so can't see all the photos, but sounds like you had fun!

emoticon 5-27-21 I'm happy on this beautiful Thursday. I Love Thursdays, a GREAT catch up day at Work! I walked in the park, before the heat. I might swim, this afternoon. emoticon BUT the pool guy came today, so chlorine is high. I might wait till tomorrow.

I spoke to my Mom, today. Here caregiver called me. She isn't drinking enough water. She gets dehydrated quickly. I called her & reminded her how important it is. Hope she gets the hint! I hope she doesn't end up in er, because of it. She has before. I'm keeping her in my heart & hope she listens to her helpers! emoticon emoticon
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon (10 a day, for me!) PLEASE drink your water, & I will too! Have a great day!

Sparkling, I love your handy hints. I'm retired, but having veggies prepped ahead of time is a time saver!!! Here is a pic of the Arboretum we visited on Sunday. It was overcast, but still so beautiful.

Ruthie, love your new profile photo!
emoticon 5-24-21 Handy Hints from Sparkling:

LUNCH: I'm getting better at preparing before I go. Pack lunch in my lunch small, soft box with small frozen ice packs, usually veggie packs I make & 2 hard boiled eggs. Sometimes I will use Peanut butter on celery, instead of eggs. emoticon emoticon I freeze a little filtered water in the bottom of two 12 oz bottles. Then add fresh water to the top & take with me, too.Helps me get through a long store visit. It get VERY hot here, but my lunch pack lasts for about 3 hours in the car.

AGING: I KNOW how hard it is to 'swallow' aging pills. Lucky we found the perfect people to live with my mom. They are her caregivers. They get room & board & cook for her, clean & take her places to 'play'. Like going to the horses. She's having fun, & living a great life, we are all so blessed, as I can't be there with her. Nor can my brother.

CLEANING supplies: I buy all of my non toxic cleaning supplies from a company, on line Melaleuca. Including 99.9% antibacterial. I've been with them since 2002. I am a member. I also get my vitamins from them. I am not promoting them to you. There are NOW toxic free cleaning in stores now. "GREEN", etc. 'They' are finding that many people including children, are getting asthma from 1 use of bleach, that's what I have learned from the health food industry.

(my veggie packs & green drink, a weeks worth I pack them 1 time a week & live on them!)

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!

Ruthie hope you feel better soon!

5-4-21 Today I went walking in 'our' park & swang on the swings! About 1/2 an hour reaching for the sky! emoticon

When I was a pre-teen I would put on 'shows' for the neighborhood. Singing & dancing & preforming marionettes I made. I served Fizzes & popcorn. I mostly performed 'circus' shows. Since I stared working with our family's marionette theater, when I was 6 years, this was much later. These were MY produced shows. Funny! I am still producing & performing them! emoticon The Circus theme is still my favorite! Has anyone see the movie, JUMBO? Most of the music from that movie, was in our marionette theater shows.. ALL the marionettes from the first 1 in 1968 are still in my storage units, 5 hours away. They have been in hundreds of performances, for thousands of people. Yep! I'm living a fun life, why not, I'd rather have fun, than to be grumpy! emoticon emoticon


(1975 preforming the 'floor' trapeze to song, SWING HIGH, from JUMBO i'm in my wedding dress, singing & preforming at our reception)
