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!

UGH!!!

Good Day Sparkfam!

It's been a minute but I do want you guys to know all is well with me. I have been logging but I can't seem to blog if I use the privacy feature that I have on google. Anywho, I pray all is well with you guys & I am just enjoying the calm yesterday the winds whipped at high speed. Had my hair whipped all around my face & you know I don't wear hats unless its in the low 20s or teens but I should've had one on yesterday. Paper is everywhere, I had a ladies meeting for the Jewels in His Crown group at our church's corporate office. I really enjoy myself & the theme of course was sweets. I bought, Kimberley's triple chocolate & red velvet cupcakes. The pic is shown below. Let me tell you I didn't taste them last night but today is my good friend & co-workers b'day so I bought them again. I tried & it was dreamy, do I want another one? NO! Not at 370 calories & 180calories from fat. HELLO!! UGH!! See my title. lol


So tonight will be 20mins of step aerobics, 30mins of weights & maybe if I am good then I can have 30mins on the dreadmill.....UGH! HELP!

I am so enjoy February & the fast for 21days for spiritual reasons really taught me how to really put foods into their place. You eat to live not the live to eat. Yes we can have indulgences but also have to be mindful of how much & when we do indulge.

God bless my special Angels!

Love,

Dee

    Yeah, That's high in cals. For my birthday, I had a chocolate hazel nut tart. High in everything, but I shared it, so I wouldn't eat it all. Tomorrow is my actual birthday celebration, and my friend is bringing a rum soaked Russian cake. Well, of course, I must have a slice. (A small slice.)

That looks SO good!!! I rather have Strawberry though lol. Eating all those calories will make you jump on the treadmill even if you don't like it lol. I've worked out hard when I've splurged and most of the time I KNOW how many calories but I think I'm talking about those cookies I told you about. That will make me watch my servings when I'm working out at midnight lol. I tell you what I'm going to watch my Brownie serving. I may put peanut butter on it. OR I could eat Oatmeal with my add ins!! I'm up late and have an early morning and I realized I gave you another heart but this on one was for you and your DH! emoticon
Enjoy Your Day!

    Are those the pictures of the actual cupcakes you made? They are beautiful! I've never had red velvet anything before, but those just look, well, divine.

Good for you for only having ONE, and I'm so glad to read that you do step aerobics. I thought I was the only one left doing that.

Hope you had a happy end to your happy day!

    That is just TOO scrumptious looking! I'm glad you had one--JUST ONE. emoticon It's great to hear how your fast helped you put things in perspective!

I still want to visit your church one of these Sundays. Last Sunday I went to St. Sabina to hear Dr. Cornel West speak. He was dynamic as always, but I had to leave partway through because of a meeting. emoticon These days I don't have regular Sunday-a.m. responsibilities at my own church, so it is a good time to get a taste of other congregations & enjoy their gifts. I'll be in touch!

Yes, that wind was crazy!! Take care of yourself, my dear. Actually you seem to be doing a really good job of that! emoticon
