WooHoo! Surgery for friend is done. She just called a little bit ago and all went well. She says her husband looks like a load of concern has been lifted from him. After suffering in pain for nine months and seeing and talking to so many different professionals, she finally has relief from the pain! PTL! Thanks to All who lifted up prayers for her.
Project for You Tube is done. Had to prepare a channel to upload it and am hoping to complete it this weekend. So anxious to share this special project with my friends and family. If all goes well, I want to do something with some of the ditties I have written with Spark People 'flavor' to share later on.
Had a bit of a headache most of the day. Think it is connected to some sinus congestion. DH is at work again though his cough is not good. But then, who ever heard of a good cough? LOL
It is late and I have some final posting to do for the challenge so I bid you Good Night!

Time keeps traveling on . . . and on . . .
Felt myself going on an emotional high yesterday and today. Not in a bad way. Yesterday, spent some time on the phone with someone I hadn't spoken to in quite a while. She needed some health counseling and, of course, I offered prayer, too. It concerned a sick child that couldn't find relief from her problem. Called her today and the child seems some better and she will take some advice I had given her to see if it will help also.
Friend facing surgery goes in tomorrow morning and she is at peace with what it about to happen. God has answered quite a few prayers about what is happening and she is at peace. She and her Dr. are confident of the outcome. Remember to say a prayer for her. Every surgery is major!
Worked on a project to post on You Tube today and am anxious to see it done. I am not sure exactly how to finish it, but am hoping it turns out well.
Took two more ticks off April tonight. She stayed in last night, but mostly she wants to stay on the porch where it is cooler.
DH is a little better and went to work today. He spent most of the morning in bed. He got up to eat, watch a little bit of TV, then went back to bed. I am sure it is a long day for him. Hoping he is much better tonight.
Speaking of which, good night, All!

This is where I report something new I have tried this week. I made up my own recipe for what I thought would be a healthy cookie recipe. It turned out not too badly and I found out that choosing the right spice really does make the difference. I used mashed chickpeas instead of shortening, butter, or oil. Only one cup of sugar and almost all gluten free flours. It was a mix of rice, almond and spelt. Spelt has a 'small' amount of gluten. My DH is gluten sensitive and he can do spelt w/o a problem. I wrote the recipe down and may try it again with all gluten free flours and see what happens.
Walking outside yesterday was very nice. It is wet today and suppose to get wetter, so that may be out for today. Suppose to take April to the vet this AM for her checkup. DH came home ill from work yesterday and I may have to cancel. It seems to be some kind of 'flu'.
Hope everyone who travels here will have a great day!

Sharing this. Interesting.
Did you know the seeds are the most nutritious part of the pumpkin? Most people don't. Pumpkin seeds provide magnesium, which promotes a healthy heart, proper bone and tooth formation, proper bowel function, and relaxation of your blood vessels. They are also a good source of zinc, which aids in immunity, cell growth and division, sleep, and prostate health in men. We recommend eating them with the shell because it includes extra fiber.
Pumpkin seed oil has high levels of phytosterols which are believed to help reduce LDL cholesterol (the bad type of cholesterol) by lowering its absorption when taken with a meal containing cholesterol. Research, such as this study by the Department of Internal Medicine at Washington University, has shown high levels of phytosterols in the diet significantly decreased cholesterol absorption and may be of benefit in lowering a personís risk of heart disease.

I have bought raw, unsalted pumpkin seeds at health food stores and online. Nice flavor and what a nutritional little seed!
Have a fit Friday!
