When I got up, I thought we'd spend most of the day stuckat home because of the snow. emoticon But the snow got moved and we got out! emoticon My birthday ended up quite nice. We went out for a steak dinner and I really enjoyed it.
emoticon to all my Spark friends for the goodies and kind thoughts.

    An AWESOME birthday gift. I got one for my birthday in September and I love it!!! ENJOY!! I hope your blizzard is over and I pray for the safety of all involved in it. Be careful and stay safe if you are out and about in it. Be very careful when shoveling... great cardio but can be dangerous.
Blessings and hugs,
Helen

    I thought we were getting a snow storm here in central Vermont, but it has turned out to be rain--freezing this morning.
I do hope your birthday is, or was, very happy.

    Hope you have/had a great birthday, even with all the snow!! You'll LOVE your reader - I have a Kindle and now wonder how I ever got along without it!! You can take them anywhere in your purse and they are wonderful. You just have to remember to keep them charged like a cellphone. Stay safe and warm! It's snowing hard here in Indiana, too...should get up to about 6" before it's over.

    Yep. Snow. Blizzard. Not here. We did get 6" of snow a couple of days ago and then some more. It wasn't fun shovelling out.

Be careful in that weather and don't hurt yourself shovelling out.

Happy Birthday and enjoy your reader. I am sure that you will get lots of use out of it.

An Amazing Discovery

Tuesday, December 07, 2010

I have known that oatmeal is good for you but I have never liked it! I have finally tried it again--and guess what? I am thinking it is not all that bad. I also discovered that it sticks with you!

    oatmeal fills you up more than boxed cereal. I also love it with brown sugar and butter.

  Yes oatmeal does stick with you (not the instant kind though), and there are so many possibilities to add into it that you could eat it every day with a different addition. I love cinnamon, apples, cranberries, nuts, etc. with mine. It is a really good, healthy breakfast (if you do not put tons of sugar in it--I add no sweetenings at all). Glad you found you like it now.

    I like the old fashioned (cook 5 mins on stovetop) Oatmeal and I usually put some cinnamon & splenda in, or finely ground hazelnuts (almost a powder like consistency) or sometimes craisins.

    Oh, Judy! Try it with just a bit of honey or brown sugar! I don't even use that sometimes, when I put in dried cranberries or raisins. I also love it with some nuts sprinkled in! And yes! It DOES "stick" with you! emoticon emoticon

    I love cooked oatmeal--not the instant. Try adding raisins/cranraisins/nuts/dried berries to it. Don't even need sugar/splenda to sweeten it when you do.

    I fix the old-fashioned oatmeal for breakfast at least two or three times a week with a little brown sugar on top. Yummy! Yes, it DOES stick with you and that's a plus. Hugs......

When I have it I add cinnamon raisins or fresh berries- like blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. Lovely!

    I have always liked oatmeal. Several years ago there was a VANILLA flavored oatmeal that was great. However, I can't find it any more. It was put out by Quaker. Anyone else ever try it,and is it still on the market?

Tis The Night Before Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 25, 2010

It's been a busy day. Finished cooking this morning, Got in some exercise. Met DH for lunch. Dropped off cookies and juice at Church for Sunday. Went to get a massage and then to the chiropractor. My back is getting much better! Then the mist started freezing and the streets really got slick! emoticon
Got home and we got the car loaded and left for our sons, We are now safe and sound--actually the roads were fine once we got out of town,

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
