My husband is now thrilled with his newest purchase, which happens to be the fifth Mustang he’s owned. I wasn’t around for his first three, but they bring back such fond and loving memories especially that great lime-green color!
In this photo, my brother and husband just returned from having put the top down for the first time, now that we’re in a warmer climate.
1 Kings 10:8
How happy your men must be! How happy your officials, who continually stand before you and hear your wisdom!
Now I need to remember to take my hat for when I’m in the sun longer than the recommended 15 minutes for my vitamin D fix. I’m one of those people that carry a UV umbrella versus have my eyes water most of the day if I use sunscreen.
May the sun shine on your face soon!

I was able to take a good friend to church in Ft Myers Beach. Being that we were early, accommodating for heavy traffic, I was able to walk the beach before worship. What an awesome God we have:
Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths. (Psalm 148:7)
Afterwards, we broke bread together at the Sunflower, where we both gave attention to salt content as we ordered salad and seafood.

While I now have nice, warm weather, I love being reminded by picture that my winter wonderland truly is a wonderland. Here’s Old Main from my alma mater.
BUT [as for] you, teach what is fitting and becoming to sound (wholesome) doctrine [the character and right living that identify true Christians].
I happened to have my camera in my pocket while walking for a cone last week for this sunset.
Hope you’re enjoying your day regardless of the weather.

Yippee! The Teddy Bears landed safely in Antananarivo, Madagascar! Enjoy the local trips and tours, as well as the exotic animals!
How it is that 100 things can go right and then one really weird thing happens that throws can throw us into emotional chaos. For a while, I nearly made myself sick over it. While the funk only lasted a minute or two, (in the past, it might have lasted days or weeks), it just goes to show how fickle our emotions can be. Don't you just love progress? - WooHoo!
Of the hundred right things that happened, I'm still losing weight. I feel better when I hop on the scale and get dressed each day and I have exceeded my expectations in reaching my challenge goals.
Thursday’s Progress on key nutrients:
Sodium (3269 Pizza!)
Rewards are an important part of reaching goals. I bought myself some flowers that happen to be a great buy at the check-out counter at my local supermarket.
It's politically correct in today's society to live by the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The bible has just such a rule as well:
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
Do something good for yourself real soon!

Being a pasta fiend, I have a case of garlic and parsley Fiber Gourmet (.com) pasta coming at the end of March when I return to my beautiful winter wonderland. This pasta has about half the calories with 18 grams of fiber and tastes good! WooHoo! With all the great fruits and veggies I eat, I actually have to be a little more cognoscente of staying within my maximum fiber range. While it goes against the bargain hunter in me (buying in bulk), it's probably just as well that this pasta comes in smaller serving packages so I don’t overeat.
Wow, my magnesium made the recommended amount two days in a row! It was the pork that got me over the hump.
And the pig, though it has a split hoof completely divided, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you.
For it doesn’t go into his heart but into his stomach, and then out of his body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods “clean.”)
While I eat meat, I'd be fine without it and didn’t miss it one bit when I spent three weeks in central and northern India last summer.
When I’m with my Indian friends, I happily eat vegetarian and love the Thai and Indian restaurants most of all. When I’m with my Nepalese friends, I do not buy or prepare beef. When I’m cooking for my cousin, I buy soy yogurt when I make Pakoras Curry as I know they prefer non-dairy. I like to think I’m pretty flexible when it comes to food. Thanks to having such grand Sri Lankan friends, I don't even need utensils to eat: Fingers work just fine, in fact better! For the most part, I'm a flexitarian living in a non-vegetarian household. So far, my breakfast and Cici’s pizza and salad buffet for lunch were vegetarian. To my Jewish friends and non-pork eaters, please accept my apologies for this blog.
Wednesday’s Progress on key nutrients: Another Jackpot on all seven!
This morning was my weekly Weight Watcher weigh in. I have to make a concerted effort to lighten up on the salt for two days before a weigh-in. That makes the value of SparkPeople’s nutritional tracker that much more valuable. WooHoo, I'm happy to report I managed a 1.2 lb weight loss.
I hope you’re meeting your goals today!
