Saturday, July 24, 2010

I am continually amazed by the love and encouragement I find on this website. Guess it is because we are all in the same place - wanting to live healthier!

I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my blog - and for all the SparkGoodies - they have all been very much enjoyed.

Wednesday BBQ

Saturday, July 24, 2010

Wed evening we had a BBQ at church. We had expected about 25 - maybe - because so many are out of town - vacationing right now. But, we had about 60 - 75. And, such a fun time was had by all.

Here is our Lead Pastor - he does love to feel his flock:


Our Youth Pastor's new baby, Liam:


Our Lead Pastor's beautiful - amazing wife:


Feeding our faces:


Telling Fish Stories??


Our Worship Pastor:


Ashley, our Worship Pastor's Wife, doing some Face Painting:


Adrianna's Painted Face:


Our Worship Pastor's Wife and Hannah:


Teri and Carson:


My Beautiful Daughter (who has just finished the Nursing Program):


More Face Feeding:


Patsy and Gladys (Patsy and her husband cook our Wed evening dinners during the winter months):


Jim, Patsy's Husband:


I know I got carried away adding pictures, but I do love my Church Family. They are such a loving, awesome group.

A Brighter Day

Monday, July 19, 2010

Had a good day yesterday with family. Eric (sil) had a great fishing trip in Alaska - he came home so excited - with lots of stories. After church we had baked salmon, rice, and salad. It was soooo goooood!!! And for dessert, ice cream and watermelon.

Kathi (daughter) and I cleaned up and then we played a couple hands of Canasta. We wanted to play more, but we were all so sleepy. So, I came home and I am sure they all napped. I was going to, but sat down with my knitting. Geoff, the son I live with, came in and put in another episode of "House" so there I sat.
We really like that show and have about 3 seasons now. Time to get another - I think we have watched all of these at least 3 times.

Am off today - and have a to-do list - and here I set - on the computer, enjoying the warmer weather and bright sunshine.

Well, time to get up and get at least a couple of things accomplished today.
Barb

    Sometimes I really hate those To Do lists, they never seem to stop, but when you work on checking things off, it sure feels great!!

It Has been a Hard Week

Saturday, July 17, 2010

Last week I took a tumble - well, sorta. Lost my balance and am still a little sore. I twisted my left knee and bruised my right side. So have not been exercising much this week - not enough to chart. But, will get back to my routine this week.

Also, have a family issue that really threw me - i think I have cried a pond of tears - I started to say a "lake of tears" - but not quite that much. Nothing new with this son - but somehow this time it really hurt. He is not a believer, and gets really upset if we disagree with something he may say. Monday evening this happened between him and his brother - and he just left abruptly with no explanation to me. I don't need to know the details, but would have like some reason - like he and Geoff just did not agree on something.

Even my diet took a tumble - had take out twice this week - hamburgers once and last night pizza. Did have big salads with both - but still the damage was done. I have been trying some new recipes tho - there is a baked garlic chicken recipe on sparkreipes.com that is so good and easy to fix. Had that one evening and used the leftovers with rice then next evening. So, am not tooooo bad!!

    Sorry to hear you fell and hurt yourself, I hope you're feeling better now...it really shakes you up. I fell last Saturday, caught the kerb with my toe and went down like a sack of spuds.....and in the middle of a busy bus station watched by at least fifty people. I sure got help fast though and the collective intake of breath as I went down still makes me laugh now...LOL...my elbow and knee are a little sore and scabby but otherwise fine.

Keep your chin up, I'm sure families are designed to upset us now and again, especially children! emoticon

As for the diet, climb right back up there, forget it and move on emoticon
