Hi..had a great day yesterday...

Thursday, February 16, 2012

Hi..yesterday was a fun but looong day..we left at 8 am and got home aroud 1 am. The class about cattle marketing was very interesting..then after a quick lunch at Assiniboia we went on to Moose Jaw..and did some shopping and touring :) I got a few more garden seeds, a few groceries and some Walmart treats for undies, a white t-shirt, 3 magazines, 2 Adele cds and some crafting stuff..some yarn and a cable needle to learn how to make a cable scarf, and some fabric, batting and thread to make a quilted wall hanging..

..Then on to the hockey game..MJ has a brand new rink so it was fun to look around, then have supper there with the game, we even ran into a couple people we knew...and the game was good too, MJ was a long drive home and I told hubby I'd do most of the driving..glad the weather and roads have been so good...

I found out I can get the little granddaughters next week, they have a family activity on Monday..sledding and weiner roast,so I'll go up late afternoon on Monday, stay overnight and then leave with the girls when they leave for work Tuesday. They'll stay til the weekend :) Can't wait..I actually spent most of today getting their room ready!!

Now I'm just vegging, having a beer, watching hockey and hubby's asleep on the couch. I only got in 15 mins on the x bike yesterday before I logged on the computer so today I did 45 minutes :)..listening to the new cds :)

Well I think this will be an early night..still tired from my busy day yesterday... Thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'...

read this great quote today...

"Respect your efforts.
Respect yourself,
Self-respect leads to discipline,
When you have both firmly under
Your belt, that's real power."

    That is so wonderful that you get to have the little ones come and stay. Sounds like you are doing a great job with your program and keeping very busy doing so many other things.
Take care of yourself & don't wear yourself out too much.

  Love your quote. It is so true. I take it that you are ranchers. That is how we earned our living for over 30 years until we retired.
Isn't it great to have the grandchildren come to spend time with you? Most of mine are too far away to spend time with us so we don't see them very often.
Glad to hear that you had such a good day. emoticon

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Tuesday, February 14, 2012 2 of my bike I rode the bike for 30 minutes before getting on the computer.

We had a great day..hubby gave me a heart box of chocolates..great for my chocolate fix for the rest of the month, and a card.

I made burgers and fries for lunch..I had my burger with no bun and a salad to go with it..the salad was soo pretty I almost took a picture...spinach, mushrooms, strawberries and pomegranite seeds with homemade raspberry dressing ( my secret to the dressing is low cal zesty italian with a bit of raspberry jam mixed in..I've made saskatoon dressing the same way..yummy)..dessert was more fresh strawberries and a tiny bit of ice cream.

We spent the afternoon in town getting mail, doing some banking and getting a bit of groceries and water...

Supper was grilled steaks, baked potato,peas and a tossed salad..dessert was a recipe I found on Pinterest..fresh strawberry cake with strawberry icing.

We're relaxing this evening with a bit of tv..Hot in Cleveland and hockey..I'm soon going to have my little glass of red wine and get hubby a beer...

Tomorrow we're off to that marketing class in Assiniboia and out for lunch, then we're going on to Moose Jaw and do a bit of shopping and out for supper and stay for the hockey game..looking forward to maybe the last road trip before calving!!

Still been doing a bit of cleaning and decluttering..this is a major job for me..but really part of my goals for really get this place in shape!!

Well..I should go for now and get some wine and get some more Spark points..want to reach my 1000 points this month :)

Thanks for dropping by..Happy Valentine's and keep on Sparkin' emoticon

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Jeff and I did nothing special for Valentines Day. He had Chemo in the morning and I just moped around. I did get the kitchen floor cleaned really good and got all the rugs but one swept and back down. Jeff made me a special Valentine picture. It is really cool. Today I have done nothing and am going to do just a few things.
Enjoy your hours of freedom because before long you won't have a moment to really call your own.
God bless

Day one of my new rule...

Monday, February 13, 2012 new rule is no computer until I ride my exercise bike for 30 try and get me exercising in the morning..So it worked for today. I had quite a good day. Hubby went to town for business and I stayed home and caught up with some house work ..I also sorted out stuff from the spare room closet...tossed lots of junk!!

Then I sorted some files, I tend to keep way too much junk so now I need to get rid of lots of it.

I helped hubby carry more wood to the house today, too.

Well that's about all for now..I'm off to get some more Spark points..and send out some Valentine's....Thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

    Happiness IS being married to your best friend! Love it!

And I love your new rule!!!! Smart thinking!

I also keep too much 'stuff' and could forever be cleaning things out... I guess when my boys are growing so fast and out of clothes and toys, it's easy for it to pile up. Ugh.

    Wonderful idea! You will be motivated to get that exercise out of the way so you can log on and lay with us....
I am soooo NOT a morning person but really want to lead myself in that will take a lot of work and changes though.
So proud of your accomplishments!

    Great rule Donna - I keep telling myself yes, yes, I will get on the treadmill but what the heck - I obviously need a big kick in the butt to make it a daily habit. I will try making it a "rule"!

Just a quick blog..while I watch the Grammys..

Sunday, February 12, 2012 I spent some time in the kitchen doing some prep my fresh pineapple cut up, got one of the pomegranites ready to eat and washed a huge bowl of lromaine lettuce. I was going to use jars to store the lettuce in since it was something I saw on Pinterest but when I read the whole instructions the woman had a special lid that fit on the jars and used her vacuum sealer to remove the I fut it in plastic bags and sucked the air out (any one else their own vacuum sealer?) haha. I cut the lettuce up with a plastic knife so it won't turn brown so fast...we'll see if it lasts as long as the Pinterest stuff...

Then I made some Swedish apple bars for hubby..okay..I sampled them too..Then I froze most of the rest:)

We are having a bit of a cold snap so we kept the wood stove burning all day...I rode 30 minutes on the x bike and racked up some Spark points..Last night I think I got up to, not so much yet..

Hope you all had a great Sunday..thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

No whining

so I'm not going to watch the grammys. I'm saving myself for the acadamy awards! Anyway hope you enjoy them.
And yes I do have a vacuum sealer, it works great keeping meat fresh or anything else for that matter.
Have a lovely spark evening and day tomorrow.

Hi I missed blogging yesterday...

Saturday, February 11, 2012

Hi..I was really doing great with my February goals but my eating has been out of whack for a couple days and I missed blogging yesterday...all these road trips and meals away..where I have no willpower..that's how I got in this shape to begin with!!

Yesterday hubby went to town for the mail, etc and I even stayed home..for a change :)
I did help with chores lots yesterday so that helps.

Today is back on track for me..tracked my food..stayed within limits...rode bike for 30 minutes..and blogging :)

Today is hockey day in Canada and all the Canadian NHL teams have games today..I'm using game time as computer time as I usually watch and use the laptop at the same time.

I'm on track to getting the 1000 points and fitness minutes for February..I should work on more points tonight as once the granddaughters come for their school break I'll find it harder to get enough points...but lots of exercise with them..haha..

I found some very good inspirational quotes and have been copying them into my quote book to share later.. to get more points..thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'

Laugh your heart out
dance in the rain
cherish the moment
ignore the pain
live, laugh, love
forgive and forget
as life is too short
to be living with regret... emoticon

    Glad you were able to stay on track today. That will make it easier to do tomorrow and Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday.....well, you see where I'm going with this. It's a lifelong thing and it's good to hear you made such good choices. Thanks for sharing the nice little poem. It has lots of meaning to it. Have a healthy time reaching your goals!!!
