I really enjoy reading others' quotes and Scripture numbers. I always find something I can use each day to deal with my faults and others' shortcomings. We are not perfect and once we swallow the HUBRIS and get on with our flubs that are all too human, life gets easier to stop, err,start, start. err, stop and change. That is what life is; doing, oopsing, changing, being humble and wise enough to let those in control, do their job on us. I need this in mind to hopefully make His job easier.

Best gravy ever

Monday, July 07, 2014

I was fully intending to cheat and have sausage gray and biscuits yesterday, but was ill all day, so DD ate it. I did have some biscuits with smart balance, but that is all my stomach could handle. Ironic, but I guess I was not supposed to eat it yesterday.. I did put some boysenberry preserves on a couple of them,, less fat than the gray though..

Today it is that hazy, foggy humidity. NO rain, but so hot and sticky that you can just wipe the stickiness off your arms.
I am pretty sure I lost about four cups of fluid at work.. two hours of non-stop cardio there.. so hot!!

    Hope you are feeling better. I have not had biscuits and gravy in so long. You have made me hungry. But better not. Already had supper. But breakfast for supper tomorrow night sounds pretty. God bless. Have a good night. Hugs, Judy.

    The biscuits sound delish! Little grandma would mix in a smallish bowl some blackberry jelly or jm and a dallop of butter and blend it together and smear that over the biscuits. I miss hers made from scratch. Never used a recipe jsut a lil of this lil of that.

    OMG biscuits and sausage gravy is my favorite food. I could eat it every day. Sorry to hear you didn't feel well and didn't get to enjoy it, though. That's a bummer.

Glad the weather is relatively nice and you're enjoying your Sunday!

Not much going on today,, that is a good thing for me! We went to the fruit market for our local farm eggs, then to grocery store for essentials. The temperature must have climbed twenty degrees while we were gone!! It is a beautiful day for our city's fireworks finale tonight!! Perfect weather, sunshine and most of all, my day off.. We don't drive down to the park, as the crowds swell to half a million people, but some of the works can be seen back yard.

    we stayed home also, haven't went to see the fireworks for years, just to hard to get out of town afterwards, and then there are all the people. Just better to stay home.

    I don't like crowds either.
I'm glad you are having a nice weekend, it's nice here in Big Rapids too.

We had our fireworks last night, and they are shot off not far from my house. I can actually see most of them from my kitchen window, saving me from being bit by the 'skeeters outside!

Today was a nice day at work, ,, no big deal,, like those days!!

DD got a lot accomplished at her doctor's office today.. GOt her annual physical with eh works, doc saw her skin and is referring her to the same dermatologist she went to a few years ago when he diagnosed her..This new doctor very wisely decided that DD skin is way too much for her to even handle. DD got her cream, asthma inhaler, office visit, labs,, all with no co-pays!!
The one Rx cream is over $300 for a small tube,,maybe 2 ounces! That is insane. Even the pharmacist was stunned that it was all covered and was so highly priced.

I still await a good news envelope in my mailbox, but all I got yesterday was another bill for mom and my property tax bill!!
Hers came yesterday too, so no good news, only ways to part with my paycheck!!

I hope today's mail brings me news of health insurance.. starting the seventh month of trying, waiting,etc..

    I sure hope you get that coverage really soon.

Yesterday we got at Wal Mart Witch Hazel pads sold by rubbing alcohol. A friend told me about using it on my eczema and i ahve a stomache rash as well. After using it 3 times the rashes are gone. I don't itch at all. these are ina box like the Stri-dex pads for acne.
