Birthday girl

Saturday, February 06, 2010

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult. ?
We finally found our granddaughter the chairs and table we wanted for her birthday. We took it over last night and put it together. She kept saying this is my table and chairs. She was making her brother sit down where she could feed him. She wanted a pink horse, so we got her a pink stick horse and she loved it. Around and around her and her brother went riding their horses. Her dad got her a pink guitar and she played us some music. Her other grandparents will get her today and take her to lunch. I called her this morning to wish her Happy Birthday and she said hello my nana and I said hello my Alyssa. She sounded so grown up. I know before I can turn around she will be 16 and I pray I'm there to see her and her brother. She will have her cake and ice cream tonight. She also had butterfly balloons.
She loves butterflies.
Keep on Sparking sweet Spark friends. I must be in the Spark groove no temptations!!!
I am focused on Day by Day. Woo Hoo.

Blessings

Friday, February 05, 2010

Reflect upon your greatest blessings, of which every man has many not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. Charles Dickens
Nana and Poppa had a blessing today. We got to go see our little granddaughter for grandparents at kindergarten. They sang and did fingerplays for us. They showed us all the work they had did. We were so proud of her. When we walked in she turned around and told a little boy, real loud that's my nana and poppa. That was the crowning moment.

Perseverance

Thursday, February 04, 2010

Perseverance is not a long race it is many short races one after another.

    I agree, perseverence is key, I like how you said "many short races" it helps break down something that could be a very long haul. Keep up the good work, we all can do it if we have faith and persevere :)

Valentines

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

Well Alyssa (granddaughter) had to make a valentine box today for school. We found a red satin box and put a picture of a sparkling valentine in the middle. She wanted butterfly stickers and valentines and flowers and sparking butterflies all over oh yes and twinkling stars. We have a masterpiece. What fun. She is going to be four next week .
We cooked stew and she helped with the vegetables putting them in and when I opened a can she would put it in the boiler. She said we made a good stew.
One good thing about having her around you don't think about eating , you are too busy.
My son is raising his two children by himself and I asked him today did he want to make the valentine box, he said please mother You do the crafts. I will if I have too but I would appreciate your help, You know you enjoy doing it. He has did some projects with the kids and the teachers really love him for doing it. He is not real talented at crafts but he sure tries. Hey, I'm on day 31. Can't hardly believe it. I hope the year keeps on this good.

Has anyone seen Mimi Kirk on youtube. She is something else. She is vegan. She is 71 and looks like she is 50. That's what a healthy lifestyle can do for you. I'm not vegan but I do eat a lot of fruits and vegetables and try to remember to drink a green drink a day. I like to eat my fish and seafood a little too much for vegan but I love the recipes and use them that is on spark. I'm not to big on chicken and beef. I will eat a little portion occasionally. I really like Sparks motto of there is nothing you can not eat in moderation. There are a lot of things I stay away from, like too much sugar, or fried, but that is my choice, that's what works for me.
I may get an exercise room this summer. I would love to be able to just go in my room, do a relay of exercise, and walk out. I have my treadmill and recumbent bike in my office. My weights or on the back porch. I want to get an elliptical machine, I think.
I started my second collage. I can't understand why I did not want to do one. I love looking at it on my desk and dreaming. Oh well we live and learn, I hope.

    I just did a search on MIM Kirk.I didn't find the utube but found a video of her doing an interview on a eating clean web site. That is some 70 yr old. Thanks for mentioning her.It was interesting.
It is nice to have a room just for exercise. We turned our back small bed room into one for both of us. The only one that ever used the room is Brianna so we bought a twin air mattress for her on few occasions she stays over night. I have half the room and Bill has half. But It is great. You will love having a room just for exercise.
Sounds like you are doing great with your eating.
have a great evening
