Valentine's Day/Deals of the day

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Hello to all. I'm GIVING THANKS for my health! I'm SO grateful to have energy again, and I did my strength training today, and plan to start walking/cycling again tomorrow. VERY MUCH looking forward to being OUTSIDE!!!!!

Had a GREAT impromptu dining experience with our 'BESTEST' FRIENDS, last night. We called and asked if they wanted to join us at the Grille, and they invited us for supper instead. Mmmmm, YUMMY heart-shaped pizza, salad and cheesecake on the menu. Plus the TABLE was adorable! Red-checkered table cloth, white platters w/red napkins, valentine m&m's scattered in front of each plate, goblets of sparkling apple juice, and to TOP it off, DOVE DARK CHOCOLATE!!!! And you'll be tickled to know that I ate moderately.










Hope everyone had an AWESOME Valentine's Day!


Okay, it's official! I think I may have the MOTHER load today on my good deals! We are talking FANTASTIC deals!!! My daughter got 4 Breyer horses [usually sell between $20-30 [or more] retail, and a wonderful barn FOR THE GRAND TOTAL of $6. To say she was elated would be putting it mildly! ha! emoticon

WHERE do I begin! This is a partial list--I'm NOT kidding you!

Pristine pillowcases

Mason jar glasses

A set of DARLING glass plates w/glass cups for tea parties [7 plates, 8 cups]

glass vases, and candle holders

old bottles, and creamers and salt/pepper shakers

A colander

A huge container of colored pencils WITH tracing paper

pads of paper and stickers

'character' bath towel and CUTE pillow case for Sammy

collar and leash for our dog.

4 tops for me

2 pair of 32/30's for the boys

AND a WHOLE bag of practically brand new [DARLING name-brand] infant 3-12 months] clothes for my dear friend's new granddaughter!!!!!!!

Okay, do you want to take a GUESS????

DRUM ROLL PLEEEEEEEASE……. emoticon emoticon emoticon


TWENTY DOLLARS!!!!! THAT'S IT--$20!!!!!! Okay, here are a few shots of my loot! ha! Can you tell I really like working at the thrift store! Not only do you get first pick, BUT you get half price!!!!!! emoticon And Mary is SO thrilled! We split a black bean veggie burger afterwards and she just couldn't quit smiling! She burst out with, 'I LOVE THRIFT STORES.' Blesses me so much that she is learning the value of a buck!









And SO much of what I got I'm going to 're-gift' with creative ideas from Pinterest. It's SO fun to recycle!!!!! emoticon

Okay, well I feel like walking 5 miles with the adrenaline rush of this shopping day! hahahaha And if it wasn't 8:30 at night, that's exactly what I'd do!

Loads of love to ya'll and {{{{{huge hugs}}}}

    I love to shop at thrift stores too. My daughter and I go thrifting often. Yesterday I had a $5.00 off coupon when I spend $10.00. Well, that makes the treasure hunt great fun. It is so easy to spend $10.00. What I found was a beautiful handmade afghan with appliqué quilting circles on it. I had never seen the combination of crochet and quilting. I have a passion for homemade crochet because I know the work/love that goes into it.The prices of the items: afghan 6.00, linen skirt for me 3.00, cotton skirt for grand daugther 1., antique flour scoup 50 cents, bell 50 cents, and a great nf book for $2. So with the coupon, I only spent about $7.00. I love Thrifttown! emoticon

Health/muffins/words!!

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

I tell you, every time I get sick, my RESPECT for JOB rises exponentially! emoticon I'm SUCH a wimp! But I'm feeling MUCH better, praise God!

This morning I made Pastry Wheat Blueberry muffins. Mmmm, they were tasty. I wanted to do something a little special that wouldn't require much energy since I'm just getting my strength back, so I did this for Valentine's day--idea on Pinterest:

Line your muffin tins with papers. Stick a normal size marble on the outside of each paper and it forms a heart.

Add your batter [I made a mistake of putting too much, so if you do this, don't add the normal amt. for a muffin.]

Bake and enjoy! emoticon 164.5 calories, 5.6 grams of fat, 15.1 carbs and 4 g. of protein. Here is the recipe

recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.asp?recipe=1995620


Yesterday I was sitting in the bathroom looking at "Family Circle" and came across this Special K advertisement:

What will you GAIN when you LOSE? Above was a montage of words! Being the LOVER of words that I am, I was SO inspired and thought I'd share hoping to pass on the torch.

CALM

JOY

MOXIE

SASS

DRIVE

SHINE

PIZZAZZ

OOMPH

SPARKLE

CONFIDENCE

EXCITEMENT

PEACE

HOPE

GUTS

RESOLVE

NERVE

ZING

MOMENTUM

PEP

GLEE

SPIRIT

Aren't those GREAT things to gain in exchange for fat body!!!



I CHOOSE a shining countenance over stuffing my face with things that will make me fat and fatigued!



I CHOOSE a POSITIVE attitude instead of listening to all the negative self talk that totally defeats and discourages me!

I CHOOSE to keep my eyes on the PRIZE and say NO to the momentary pleasure of a bad choice!

Happy Valentine's Day to all my dearest friends! My dh is taking me out to dinner and I'm looking forward to spending time together.

Huge hugs, Susan

Among the living...

Monday, February 13, 2012

Hello, to my DEAR friends.

I'm still not myself, but at least I'm among the living again. My head still hurts but not as impacted as it's been and my headaches are subsiding a tad. Thanks for all your prayers.

We've had to move our Valentine party to the 28th. Disappointing, but I'm in no shape for a party.

Update from the doctor

Friday, February 10, 2012

I have a very bad sinus infection and I'm on a double antibiotic. She told me not to expect to feel any better for at least 3 days--10 day prescription. This infection is draining and causing my stomach issues, and the prescription is supposed to be hard on the stomach so I'm not too excited about that. Eating some soup and hopefully this will keep me from getting sick from the meds.

THANK YOU for your prayers and everyone's LOVING words to me! I so appreciate my dearest friends here.

As to my 'red team' members--thank you for excusing me this week. {{{{huge hugs}}}}

All my love, Susan

    Be sure, while you are on these high powered antibiotics, that you eat at least a cup of yogurt a day (with active cultures) to replace the flora in your bowels which are being destroyed by the antibiotics!
Otherwise you could end up with diarrhea and an infection in your bowel! Not fun!
(I don't know why doctors don't tell people this)

Good luck, and hope you are better soon!

  I was really concerned about your well-being. Sinus infections can knock you for a loop as you have found out. Best Wishes for a speedy, uneventful recovery. You have lots of caregivers around there so you should be in good hands.

    What a relief to know what you're dealing with, as this now seems quite manageable.
