As a child this was my very favorite Christmas Carol to sing. I was a soprano but somehow my throat don't want me to sing...but the devil is a liar!!! emoticon

Hopefully that link came out so you can enjoy the Temptations singing Silent Night. Such a beautiful song to listen to and this version is so beautiful. emoticon

So what do you have planned for this Marvelous Friday? It's really chilly(cold) here and I plan on doing the floors at home. I'm moving all the small stuff out of my bedroom to really deep vacuum and clean the carpet a little. I also need to dust. Whew! emoticon

My son goes to work so I will be home alone hoping to watch some Seasonal movie or Of course I can put in one of my own like Rudolph. I had the opportunity to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas again but someone called me. lol But oh well for Charlie Brown. emoticon

I had a great breakfast again...whole grain eggos and pb on them w/cinnamon. Yogurt also. Lunch was some BBQ Beef lowfat only 80 cals per serving and WW Bread and an apple. Dinner is up in the air but something very healthy.

I am Happy to be here and will be back tomorrow a little longer. I love you Sparkfriends and others. This is the place to be for VICTORY!!! emoticon

Merry Thursday!!!

Thursday, December 16, 2010


I'm proud to say that I am. Don't care who sees. A MERRY HEART DOES GOOD LIKE MEDICINE. I rather smile than take medicine! emoticon

It was such a warm day on Wednesday and now it's back down high will be in the 50's but that's winter time for you...early winter. emoticon

Had a great breakfast: Whole grain eggo waffles with a bit of peanut butter on them and some water.
Lunch will be a Lean Cuisine dinner and tossed salad.
Dinner: Tossed Salad, lemon pepper roasted chicken, and some brown rice.

My workout is walking and the mini tramp. Yeah!!!! So that's a Merry Thursday!

How do you like my Christmas Tree? Took me 3 days in November to put it up but I did it. My niece told me to make sure I take it down before Martin Luther King Day. I told her that I can keep it up as long as I want...I'm grown! emoticon

I am known for keeping it up...the longest was the end of February. emoticon

Enjoy your Thursday!
I have lights on it and at night it is so beautiful! The limbs represent the Body of Christ and the ornaments are the Fruits that we bare and remain. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!

God bless & thank you for sharing!

    I love your cheerful post! I am smiling as I read it. Your tree is beautiful. I love the part about the fruits that we bare. Now I want to post one of mine. It was decorated by my girls, so all of the ornaments are on the front and my tree is leaning, but it is so cute. Merry Christmas! emoticon

Happy Monday SparkPeople!!!

This picture is in line with my subject of this blog because that's one of my gowns. lol

I have this habit of sleeping with "stuff" on the bed. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Plus I have pillows also on the bed that I don't use because I'm not a pillow person. I normally use my travel pillow to prop my neck up especially since I hurt my neck.

Does this interfere with good sleep? emoticon

Even years ago I always had a crowded bed. If it wasn't my Bible or School books or unused pillow or my was the 2 children even when I was with my husband. lol (Was that on purpose?) emoticon

Recently I've tried to keep everything off the bed...including the laptop. emoticon That's easier now since my home connection is out.

But I've been sleeping pretty good these last couple of weeks. Especially since the time changed! emoticon

So, do you think my quality of sleep has been effected because of the added "junk" in the bed? I'm sure having that laptop those weeks where a pillow should be did...but I was a night owl and have been a night owl for years. emoticon

Sleep is great and I love it when I get the eight.

How is your sleep? How is your bedroom? Is it a great sleep environment? Do you have a crowded bed? Have you ever?

Enjoy this Beautiful Monday and Stay Strong. We only have a few more weeks to go!!! emoticon emoticon

    Hmm... I could sleep on a stack of books if I were tired enough.

I am happy you are getting that beauty sleep it makes all the difference. Getting enough sleep is definitely not one of strong suits. So you are my rock star!

Sleep on!

    I am a night owl but I am trying real hard to got to bed early. I feel so much better when i do. My 12 y/o loves my bed. On the week days before school starts he jumps right in with me. Hubbie gets up very early to go to work. He does n't like he in our bed. I have heard it said to only use the bed for sleep etc. not writing, reading. But I write best on my bed. I love a night time tea and slip into the covers and to go sleep. Socks on sometimes. winter months makes me more sleepy.

    I also love my bed. I have a clear bed.(except for hubby, LOL). I secretly love it when he falls asleep on the couch and I get to have it all to myself. Although he does keep it warm in the winter. I wish each day for eight hours, but I never get it. I'm lucky I get 6. Glad to hear your sleepng well. emoticon

    My great love affair is with my bed. I even carry a picture of it around & it helps me relax when I am having a stressful day. lol People think I'm nutz when I tell them but oh well. . . Me myself I love to have a clear bed. I will put my fur on it like now when its so cold, heat doesn't even seem to warm my room. I watch too much tv or it watches me, My hubby turns it off when I fall asleep but I still get up turning off tvs for my sons. Then my hubby turns it back on. I try to sleep the good sleep but some times it doesn't happen. . . I would like to sleep more since the time change but it doesn't always happen . . God bless & enjoy everyday! Dee

I had a wonderful walk in the cold air this morning and I'm feeling so much better. For those of you who do not know...I was injured on 8/30,10 when I fell into a Drainage Canal/Ditch filled with water. I hit my head on the cement above the water and hurt my knee and neck. I'm in Physical Therapy now thus the lack of a lot of workouts. emoticon.

I'm going to do my Leslie Sanson Videos again because my knee is better than my neck. I'm going to do everything HAPPY because being sad and negative will not change anything. emoticon emoticon.

It's a beautiful day in my neighborhood and I pray you all are enjoying some fun in the sun or snow or rain. Be happy and encouraged no matter what. We are making it through!
Blessings to you Winners!!!! emoticon

    Girl, that is wonderful! I am so glad to know that you are doing better. I love Leslie & when she walks some times, I jog cause I'm so amped burning more calories. I went to the store today & here in Chicago, its a hot mess! I mean yesterday, it rained & melted the snow from last week. Then this morning it started to snow & of course its slick & now the temps are dropping, YIKES!!! So tomorrow we will be crawling to work & school. Its life in Chicago. lol

God bless & I'm so proud that you waited on your workouts. I know it was hard. . .
