It is well.... (Accidental second copy of this blog!?)

Monday, August 19, 2013

Went for a walk with the DH and the dog this morning. Was a little slower paced then I would have liked, but it was decent.

Then the day passed, didn't get as much done as I would have liked.

Went for a walk this evening just to get some peace, and played the Pandora box, with all the various stations I like. When a yack-ad came on, poof! I changed the station. Had some nice songs where I really picked up the pace and after my first mile, I didn't want to go home. Second mile. Third mile. Getting darker and leg was griping at me.

Cooled off at home listening to the music and suddenly, in a supposedly "exercise music" station, I get Rebecca St James singing "It is Well" and the lyrics were there. Oh Joy! (Not all the lyrics I remember, but the melody was there. And I thought, "yea... All is well!"

Thought it would be fun to upload link to the video - but the only RSJ version of the song I could find on YouTube was a live version, no lyrics, and not the same phrasing and pacing (I didn't like it as well as the studio version I heard on Pandora. But I did find lots of other versions of the song with lyrics, really too many to pick one, so here is my arbitrary selection:

"It is well" - Kutless

Hope it is well with you...

    It is well with my soul is one of my favorite songs. The author wrote the lyrics after his family was kidded in a shipwreck. With that in mind, it really lets me know all is well and I surely have nothing to complain about!

    Thank you for mentioning Pandora's box which I looked up. I'd not heard of it before and it looks good!

    That's really strange - where did the other comments go? There were several others here in this blog earlier this week.

    I love Pandora and training the stations to what I like... Mine occasionally get a little wierd though too.. Most common in my Christian feed is to get country stations or kids songs, occasionally secular R&B as well. Oh well.. lol..

I have a comedy station, a jazz station, and a Christmas station as well :)

I have Pandora One so I don't get ads, but sometimes I have to forward to the next song or thumbs down if I don't like one, so I can move on to the next one.

More later.

Got to see it today. For free. Music Theatre of Wichita. An interpreter was there and wow! She could fingerspell "super-cali-fragi-listic-expi-oli-doe-sis" (and I'm not quite sure I spelled it right just typing it!)... Wish I had a video (not allowed to run cameras videos or other electronics.).

Man!

That's bad when a hearing person fingerspells faster than a deaf person!!

    They have some pretty talented individuals out there.. On the tv show 'Right This Minute' I saw video of a translator at a rap concert, translating all the lyrics. It was fascinating to watch

    I wish I knew more sign language, but pretty much all I know is what is most likely a super-simplified "Silent Night" that I learned for church choir as a kid. I would LOVE to see someone finger-spelling supercalifragi...whatever. :) That sounds super impressive!! Hope you enjoyed the show!

    My 3 daughters are also Deaf (I'm hard of hearing) and they are always asking me to interpret whatever Disney movie we are watching at the time since they are too young to read the captions. Oh man the fun I've had learning to sign for Mary Poppins, Sound of Music, and more emoticon

TO LIVE A LONG LIFE...

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

A TOUGH OLD COWBOY FROM TEXAS COUNSELED HIS GRANDDAUGHTER THAT IF SHE WANTED TO LIVE A LONG LIFE, THE SECRET WAS TO SPRINKLE A PINCH OF GUN POWDER ON HER OATMEAL EVERY MORNING.

THE GRANDDAUGHTER DID THIS RELIGIOUSLY UNTIL THE AGE OF 103, WHEN SHE DIED.

SHE LEFT BEHIND 14 CHILDREN, 30 GRANDCHILDREN, 45 GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN, 25 GREAT-GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN, AND A 40-FOOT HOLE WHERE THE CREMATORIUM USED TO BE!

Canteloupe Smoothie for today

Thursday, July 18, 2013


About 2-2.5 cups chopped up cantaloupe (roughly 1" trapezoidish cube-ish chunks
1 medium peach, plenty ripe, skin was almost too soft to be eaten by had. I just chunked it into blender container without the pit
1 almost too ripe avocado (adds creaminess!!)
1 frozen banana (whole, about 1 cup, plus or minus a few molecules
1 handful of walnut segments mostly halves (about 1/4-1/8 cup)
1-1.5 cuppa Hempmilk (the original not chocolate)
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 tablespoon chia seed
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of Bragg's NACV (natural apple cider vinegar)
1 tablespoon ish of raw coconut flakes

Did I forget anything?
Whirled it in the VitaMix untll smooth.

Yep, I forgot to mention the 1-2 teaspoons of food grade diatomaceous earth (kills any cooties I inadvertently ate.)

It's made oh prolly 4 glasses (10-12 oz glasses, depends on how full they are). One is in refrigerator for later. Hubby liked the sips I gave him, so I packed him a to-go mug for him to take - prolly 14-16 oz. Hoping DS will be willing to drink more of it now that he has finished this round of mowing. Or not.

I'm gonna have to edit on this blog later, because I need to go to my Mom's (30 min drive), take her somewhere for brunch, then to her 2 pm doctor appointment (her cardiologist - this was an appt she had before the torn retina episode.). And there is a link I want to add here, from James Fell "Body For Wife" blog, on the subject of tracking food calories, which a) is funny (aren't they all?), b) gently instructive (ditto), and c) the inspiration for this blog... Especially considering that I am more of a touchy-feely dreamer type and not so much analytical... I've gotten myself crazy laboriously tracking every nit-picking caloric detail of some favorite recipes and saved them to "My Recipes" and then when I make my recipe again a few weeks later, I can not seem to be able to find that recipe in "Favorites" in Nutrition Tracker and then just indicate that I ate a 1/2cuo serving of that recipe (like, most recently, my Black Bean & Corn salad posted a few weeks back.). Sigh. Evidently I'm not "doing it right". But after reading James Fell's blog , I can just look at my above list and think, "Yea, that was a decent breakfast - couple kinds of fruit, some nuts and Hempmilk for proteins, the chia seed also adds some protein and fiber, cinnamon and honey bring their special charms and sweetness, yea, this was just all right!!"

Still need to jiggle some calories dead later on, rebounding or walking...

    Oh I think you can make them pretty much however you want!? I found two or three (or more!!) Canteloupe smoothies on SparkPeople and then concluded I could pretty much use whatever I wanted. The one I made a few days ago wasn't as sweet - I had Canteloupe, cottage cheese, pecans, peach, honey (but not enough) and cinnamon. Meant to put a frozen banana in it, and forgot. Found the thawed out banana later and re-froze it over night. Then reused it today (was still in its sealed baggy the entire time.). I think the banana helped with the needed sweetness.

Next time I may try it with strawberry or maybe a triple berry blend.

Yummy!
