My New Great Grand Girl going home

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Tuesday morning Kinleigh Nikole entered this world. She is our 6th Great-grand child and the first Great-Grand GIRL. We are tickled PINK. She weighed in at 6 lbs 9 oz. which makes her seem really tiny compared to her big brother Levi. He weighed 8 lbs 15 1/2 oz.

Here is a photo of her all dressed to go home.

    Kinleigh Nikole is sooo cute. I'm not telling you anything you don't already know!

My daughter weighed about 6 lbs when she was born. So tiny, she even wiggled out of her itsy bitsy shirt! She is still small, shorter than I am, about 5'2", so I'm thinking Kinleigh will be petite, too.

I know you're having fun with all your grands and greats!

I Have Maintained for almost 12 years

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I lost my weight through Weight Watchers and have maintained my status as lifetime member. I have also been keeping maintenance for almost 12 years (in December). It is not the easiest thing in the world to do some days. Some days are really easy, some days aren't quite as easy and some days I have to work really hard to keep on track. For the biggest part of time it is easy and it is really good. When I do get off track, I don't "beat myself up". I just give myself a FRESH START and get back on track. I do work hard at it everyday. One thing that helps me is that I weigh each day (I know, some say that isn't good). If I am 1 or 2 lbs up, I really concentrate on tracking and drink more water and in just as quick a time that I went up , I am back to goal.

Spark People is a great website and offers so much to make it easier to get to goal. We have videos, tracking for food, exercise, great recipes, and just about anything you would want to do. Also the support of the great friends I have made here on SP has inspired me to do what I need to do to maintain. Have a wonderful day. Eat healthy, drink your water, exercise, and do your tracking.

    THANK YOU for that post! I'm struggling to maintain. As I grow older, it gets harder. But we're all in the same boat, I think. Some people struggle to lose and some people struggle to gain. That's just the way it is. Whatever our plan is, we have to stick to it. Let's clink our water glasses together and cheer each other on!

My Violets

Thursday, July 24, 2014

I told my team that I would post a photo of my violets. They do bloom almost all of the time. I do pretty well with them now. Many years ago, my mother-in-law kept giving me violets and I would always take "too good a care" of them and they would be gone. I would either over water or under water. If you have to do one or the other, it is better to under water. They like a lot of bright light, but not bright sunshine. Actually, they take very little care.



They do bloom almost all of the time.

My little Summer Garden 2014

Friday, June 27, 2014

I am posting a picture of my garden for this year. I have green beans, cukes, yellow and green squash, onions, and LOTS of tomatoes. We have had so much rain that the garden has gotten so overgrown. Today, I was tying tomatoes to the outside of the cages because they had grown so much. I also cut a lot of the squash leaves off not knowing if it will mess up the plants. I sure hope not. The leaves were so big and growing into the tomatoes. I think I need more space or less plants. We had some of the yellow/green squash/onions for dinner.





Green beans on the right growing up the fence.


I love working in my garden because it is peaceful and enjoyable. I also get to burn some calories with all of the perspiring I do while hoeing and weeding.

Rain and Sunshine Gave us This

Friday, June 20, 2014

Wow, we had a really hard storm for a little while right at dinner time. Then while it was raining, the sun came out. I got up from the table and said, there has got to be a rainbow. I ran out the back door and looked towards where the rainbow should be and "there is was". I came back into the house and got my camera and went to the front of the house. I captured the rainbow along with a shadow of the American flag for a beautiful photo.



God Bless America...we are free because of the BRAVE. Thank you for all who have served in the past and who are serving now.
