Martina McBride..How I feel :)

Thursday, October 07, 2010

Last night on my blog I mentioned a favorite song that summed up Spark people to me.....The CD is called Waking up Laughing and the song is How I feel :).....

Confetti fallin' from the sky
My hometown on the 4th of July
A midnight snow on Christmas Eve
Like standing up for what you believe
That's how I feel when I'm with you.....

Your lucky coat, the first day of fall
When you wake up laughing just because
An old church door that stays wide open
A perfect heart that's never been broken
That's how I feel when I'm with you.....

Every day there's something new
To cry about, to laugh about
Those moments I can't live with out
That's how I feel when I'm with you....

What a perfect song to describe how I feel about spark people....
I wake up every morning and weigh myself , then all I can think about is to get on line to
see what's new on the site and what's new with my friends
but I try to do my morning routine or off to a busy farming day..
I usually blog at night when I have more time but this was special and wanted to share this morning :)

Have a great day everyone and thanks for helping me "wake up laughing"

by the way..I'm down to 205.5..almost down 15 pounds woohoo!!!!!

could I reach under 200 by Nov 1????
Yeah me emoticon

Feeling sick today :(

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

I've been feeling kind of sick since this afternoon. Rode along to the pasture this morning and put out salt blocks and moved oilers home. After lunch hubby went back to baling and finished the second last field at home..last field should be finished by tomorrow :) then just have more of the neighbors hay left..then we can haul all these bales home!!!

I did some paper work and house work this afternoon..too windy to work in the yard, still have stuff to clean up.

While driving home from town last night I was listening to a Martina Mcbride cd and one of my favorites came on..Wake up laughing..The song made me think of all of you at spark..tomorrow I'll bring the cd in and copy some of the words on my blog.

The three things I'm thankful for today are the beautiful weather is holding on to help hubby finish haying :) Got the spare bedroom and the PFRA office cleaned :) and had fun reading info on Spark today :)

my nice thing for me were a couple new magazines to read (I'm a magazine addict!!)

Maxine my age, a "comfort food: is any food that's loaded with fiber :)

October goals are on track the streaks so good so far

Hope everyone else is having a great fall, too!!!

    I don't know the song Wake Up Laughing, but so funny to read it here -- Yesterday I posted those same words on our Inspiration Board at work! Hope you're feeling better, Sweetie.

Had a full day of round up and errands!!!

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Helped with another PFRA round up, then did a bunch of errands..checked our far herd, gave them minerals, got twine for baling and paid fuel bill, then on to our nearest little city and went to PFRA office for hubby's work errands, got more groceries for neighbor! Went to bank, more twine for hubby, paid more bills then bought my groceries, then supper home for hubby in field baling. Then moved trucks home from neighbors. Now I'm just tired so just a quick blog and off to bed..

three things I'm thankful for..I accomplished alot today...I got a rain check for a new exercise bike on sale...Hubby got moved home and back baling on our own land :)

maxine chuckle..calling a drawer at my house a junk drawer is kind of redundant.

The rest of the goals are going fine..hope you all are having a great October :)

Hi..just a quick blog

Monday, October 04, 2010

Today's hubby's birthday..we started out with a PFRA round up then had a late dinner, did some chores around the yard, Hubby went to town, then out baling, so I was moving him around and spotting him a truck to get home :) then had a late supper and he's busy returning phone calls from today.

All the goals are going great except the shred..having a hard time getting back to it!!! I did mow some grass so I got some work out!!

The Maxine chuckle for today is..Wanna know a good way to relieve pressure at work? Let the air out of the boss's tires. :)

Three things I'm thankful for..all three kids remembered and phoned their Dad on his birthday!!

Hope every one is having a great day..I found some very interesting content on some of my teams..having fun huddling and touring :) lots of helpful info and fun people :)

Sunday was a busy day :)

Monday, October 04, 2010

Hi I'm back at my blog..I've had a very busy day..I started by sorting through my ripening tomatoes and made a big batch of salsa..way easier with my new food processor :) but you still have to take off the was a mess after wards. I was going to make 2 batches but only I eat it so one big batch will be enough, so I made the rest of the ripe tomatoes into freezer tomato sauce.

I picked up some groceries yesterday for my 86 year old neighbor, since her son is busy combining. they hadn't come to pick them up yet so I went down for coffee and drop off her groceries..besides paying for the groceries she gave me fresh baked buns and a fresh baked loaf of :) very yummy.

Hubby was away from home all day baling so I quadded 3 herds and put out salt and minerals and checked our herd of bulls and gave them a salt block, too. I also picked up pine cones and sticks and put them in brown lunch bags for fire starters for our wood stoves.. Tomorrow is hubby`s birthday and that`s part of his gift, plus a new chore coat, 3 pairs of gloves, a farmer`s almanac and a book on the history of beer in Canada. I baked him a German chocolate cake for his birthday,too.

I had a few phone calls and did some web surfing...and did an endless supply of dirty dishes!!
Supper was chicken in the crock pot with bbq sauce and leftover veggies.

The weekend has gone by too fast. Tomorrow we have a PFRA round up then hubby will go back baling..time to quit typing so much since I cut one of my fingers on the food processor blade and it hurts to type (just certain letters..right ring finger..)

Quick up date on Oct goals..
3 things to be thankful for..all my fresh farm grown tomatoes; beautiful harvest weather and of course yummy fresh bread and buns & good neighbors

share a smile..smiling is contagious :)


30 day time again :( gotta get my butt in gear literally

active on a team..several :)

gave a couple spark friends goodies

pumpkin seeds :)

fall cleaning project..worked on porch

do something for at neighbors, phone calls from daughter and sister

weight today up 1.5 pounds..must be the overly salty food yesterday!!

Have a happy Monday everyone..good night :)
