Happy Thursday....

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Good Thursday Sparkfam! What a gorgeous day it has turned out to be! The news said 17degrees but it is now about 40degrees. I pray you are all having a beautiful Spring day, I am. I got a nice and easy (or so I thought) workout in now I am in knots. So I need to do a quick cardio segment followed by a nice yoga stretch....

So many things are happening and pretty fast as you know life is like that some times. My daughter is going to having my 2nd grandchild in May, I will be opening up my new business at the end of April and I might be renting/selling my home & moving to greener pastures. I am taking it all as it comes. I have prayed daily on these things but the Lord will make a way & I am a firm believer in that. How do you handle your trials & test?


What are you doing to make Thursday a happy day for yourself.....

God bless & be encouraged!

Dee

    Oh my goodness, you canNOT stir up my curiosity by mentioning the new business you're going to start--next month?!!--& just leave it at that! What kind of business? And what would be greener pastures??????? You may be moving away just when we've finally gotten to know each other in person?!

Seriously, I'm really interested to hear! And emoticon on the grandbaby who is soon to arrive! Life is pretty exciting in your corner of Chicago!

I don't know if I've done much to make myself happy today, but I didn't need to because a big gift was plunked into my lap this morning: the appraisal of my condo came in OK so my refinance is a GO! I've been thanking God & rejoicing ever since I read the e-mail letting me know early, before I left for work.

Snow Day....

Tuesday, February 26, 2013



Good Tuesday Sparkfam!

It's a snowy afternoon here in Chicago so I got to go home early. I am sitting here watching one of my favorite feel good movies "Fried Green Tomatoes," it always take me back to some of my hot summers in Alabama. It sure would be okay to have some of the warmth here now to melt some of the snow.....UGH!

Driving home wasn't bad but I don't want to think about tomorrow commute......I pray you all have a wonderful Tuesday & get some fitness in.. Hubs shoveled & snow blew snow so I am going to take a nap right now.

God bless,

Dee

    We drove back from Tulsa yesterday. Rain. I loved it! (hubby, not so much). Kansas, snow, but we were behing plows. Colorado, blue skies and sunshine!

Snow today, but it was an easy day to recover from that motion. Soup on the burner!

Stay warm and sweet!

    Glad you got to go home early! I went to the office this morning, even though I'm still pretty sick, because I needed to finish & send out a report before noon & could only do it there. Got a couple of other tasks done too--& then I left for home around 1:00! The snow was already coming down so thickly; I was REALLY glad that nearly all the cars on Lake Shore Drive were going much more slowly than usual.

Now I'm still working on my current project, but cozily on my laptop, on the futon with a pot of chickory tea beside me that I'm just about to finish. Every time I cough it feels as if my lungs are trying to shoot up through my windpipe, & I'm now surrounded by used tissues because my nose has started running. Yes, a cheery day in my house, heehee! Fortunately tomorrow is my regular work-from-home day--& I canceled two appointments so there will be NO need to venture out.

Seriously, I'm SO grateful for a comfortable warm home on a day like this. I hope all the folks who don't have a home have found shelter. You take good care of yourself, & don't go to work tomorrow unless the roads are really cleared! emoticon

I Cheated BIG TIME!

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Good Sunday Sparkfam!

I know the title maybe a little exaggerated but what I meant was that I didn't cook dinner today. I know I misled you a little bit but I made this chicken piccata from the frozen section from Walmart. I also made rice to go along with. Hubs & my son both asked for seconds. It was only a little over $6 but I think it was great because they had extras.



So I guess tomorrow I will be making baking or frying something. The reason for the frozen meal was that I had to got home late from church & then made a BIG breakfast for hubs, son, daughter & grandson. I made pancakes, grits, bacon, sausage pork & turkey, potatoes & scrambled eggs. After cooking all that I need a rest. I am so sleepy right now & I think I need to got o bed right now!

God bless & I did have cookies today too....

BE Blessed! Oh...did you go to sleep? emoticon

    It makes me tired just READING about the big feast you cooked for the family! I hope they appreciated every single bite. You definitely had the right to "cheat" with a convenience food later. emoticon

Me, I spent the day in bed because I'm fighting a cold. I hardly ever get them, but when I do they're nasty. A few years ago I had very debilitating bronchitis, & I think ever since then the viruses get deeper into my lungs. I'll stay home tomorrow but have some work sent to me so I can do it propped up with pillows. emoticon

Sleep well, friend!

    You are SMOKIN'! In the good way, of course. You get more points, & more exercise minutes, than anyone else I know here on SP! emoticon

I got in some really good cardio today too, but I'm definitely needing to add in the ST. It makes such a big difference!

Good Sunday Sparkfam!

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Good Day Sparkfam! It has been a wonderful Sunday here in Chicago. The weather was beautiful, made it to my Thirst Quenchers Class at church but there were a few detours but made it nonetheless. Church was off the hook but I am still feeling the fire burn. I pray you all are enjoying your weekend but it has to come to an end.....but guess what? Stay tuned cause there will be another coming up oh in about 5 days....lol

We are on our way out to dinner to the www.wildfire.com which is in Oak Brook. I already baked chicken & made baked macaroni & cheese with bacon. That will be our back up with some baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon & butter. YUMMY! I am holding out for a dinner prepared by someone else....

So what are you guys doing or did exciting over the weekend?

God bless & be encouraged!!

Dee

    Wonderful that worship was on fire today! And I hope you all had a great time going out to eat later.

I had a lovely weekend with my granddaughter--almost two now!--& my son & daughter-in-law in St. Louis. I needed it so badly, & God is good to give me these visits. We went to church too & then picked up some Taco Bell (your dinner sounds MUCH more exciting!).

I wish I would have went out but I made a whole wheat spaghetti dish with cream of mushroom soup. It really needed cream of chicken soup lol. It was Fit & Active brand. You are always cooking something mouth watering and I would hate to just make a trip to Chicago just to eat lol. I have another friend that lives close to the Wisconsin border who puts pictures of her meals on facebook. Glad you were blessed today with your service. Being in the Presence of The Lord is Wonderful! Enjoy the rest of your evening and have a prosperous week! BLINK and it's the weekend again!
Love & Blessings!
