Sun, 27 Dec 2015 08:55:13 EST Jackpot! Went to the Auction Place on Saturday night and found this 3 tier cake stand. This is a L.E. Smith and when turned over doubles as a Veggie and dip dish. I love the blue! <img src=""> Mon, 26 Jan 2015 06:46:59 EST Being Positive <BR> Well after 24 years of living in Northern Va. my DH has decided to Retire! He has worked with the Va.

I LASTED ALL OF 4 DAYS BEFORE I KNEW THAT I REALLY MISSED HAVING MY APPLE AND PEANUT BUTTER SNACK. AND HAVING GRAPEFRUIT ONCE A WEEK DOES NOT WORK FOR ME. I REALLY DON'T LIKE TAKING LIPOTROPIC BEFORE A WORKOUT AND AFTER A VITAMIN C AND THEN I HAD TO TAKE L-CARNITINE AND THEN THEIR WAS A SUPPLEMENT CONTAINING CHROMIUM. THIS PLAN MAY WORK FOR YOU BUT IT'S NOT FOR ME! I hope that thi... Wed, 2 Jul 2014 19:47:26 EST Don't eat the CAKE <img src="">Well the one thing that I love to do is bake cakes and this one was for the employees at QMT in Manassas Va. My son worked there and attended NOVA, now he attends VT. He asked if I could fix a cake for them and so on Tuesday I showed up with this. He has been working there while he is off for winter break.

Wed, 25 Dec 2013 10:47:36 EST The pavement tryed to get me... Well it's a beautiful 72 degrees outside so Eric and I went for a bike ride. We drove to Harris Teeter and unloaded the bikes. We got on the Linton Hill Trail and rode 6 1/2 miles. I only hit the pavement once-My thought(Is my Bike OK?) I can't beleive I hit the pavement-I have front suspension on my new bike and when I stopped and leaned forward I fell off. The only thing hurt is my Pride. That's a good lesson learned- <em>332</em> <em>332</em> Thu, 14 Apr 2011 19:07:43 EST Bull Run Mountain <img src="">Well my husband asked if I would like to take a easy hike with the scouts--I said how easy? Very little hills! Ha-Ha Well I'm alive and very proud of the 2 young scouts and the 3 teenager and the 3 adult men. I walk, climbed 4 1/2 miles and enjoyed the most beautiful day. We stopped and had a nice lunch before going down, I found Cobblestone Mill Wheat sub rolls and filled with lettuce, sweet peppers, cucumbers and oni... Sat, 16 Oct 2010 14:54:40 EST I'm Ready! Well my back is still having its little pain party so I decided to go to the gym and do laps in the pool. I was so surprised when I found the whole aerobic pool empty. I did 10 laps jogging around the pool then I did side walking to help strengthen my legs. <BR> Jogging in water is nothing like jogging on the treadmill- You just go slow and easy and you feel like a deer running. <em>312</em> I came home and had a veggie sub from Subway, and a 100 calories of light potato chips. I think I... Mon, 30 Aug 2010 20:06:57 EST
