It's sunny now, but there's more rain to come later today. It's supposed to rain on into Sunday. Enjoy it now because when the summer comes and it's hot outside, we are going to wish for cooler temps or rain. Thu, 20 Apr 2017 13:09:54 EST It's pouring rain outside. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6349772 There is a 60% chance of rain today. I have seen it raining for about 2 hours now. I know! I know! I know! April showers bring May flowers. Why is it that we are never satisfied with the weather? When it's summer, we want winter, When it's winter, we want summer! Sheeesh! Mon, 17 Apr 2017 14:51:26 EST Termites? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6309390 I'm trying to sell my house and Kentucky law says when you buy a house you have to have a termite inspection done. The buyer had the termite inspection done and guess what? TERMITES! The current home owner is responsible for the initial treatment of the termites. The cost of the initial treatment, in my opinion, is outrageous. $700!!! OUCH!!! I have to pay it if I want my house to sell. It will come off the proceeds of the sale of the house. Thu, 2 Feb 2017 00:59:55 EST Internet glitch yesterday. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6307348 I wasn't able to get SP done on my PC yesterday because my PC was having troubvle connecting to the internet. What I did get done was done from my phone, but I'm not used to it so I wasn't able to get everything done. <BR> I am leaving CT tomorrow to go to KY so I will not be able to be on SP for a couple of days. Have a great week all my Spark friends.

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 10:38:13 EST Waking up with a headache. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6304993 Since I moved to CT, I have woken up with a headache about once a week. I wish I could figure out why! I've read that it could be depression, lack of sleep, stress, etc. When I lived in KY, I didn't even have a headache once a month. Wed, 25 Jan 2017 11:08:38 EST Why is it hard to sell a house? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6304752 Maybe because this is the first time I have a house for sale. A lot of details are required. Tue, 24 Jan 2017 23:48:17 EST Taking care of business today. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6304125 You know. The essentials. Paying bills and cleaning house. I also got around to drawing up a new Will since my husband passed away 3 years ago. Now I need to take it to Kentucky and have it witnessed and notarized. <BR> I logged into FB so that my SP updated status would post to FB and I get points for it and my realtor had written me a message.

The speach was great. I guess we will see within the next 4 years if everything Trump said will come to fruition. Fri, 20 Jan 2017 23:36:29 EST Why did God give the Ten Commandments? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6301647 He gave us the Ten Commandments as a blueprint for a life of practical holiness, life as a people belonging to God. They are His plan for how we should live. They are to direct the community to meet the needs of each individual in a loving a responsible manner. If we love God, we will love his will. We show our love by responding obediently to what God wants. The Ten Commandments tell us what God wants. Thu, 19 Jan 2017 22:49:44 EST Are we REALLY doing what God wants us to do? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6301012 The only way we can really know if we are doing what God wants us to do is to read the Bible and pray. When you get done praying, don't forget to meditate for a while to give God time to talk to you. Wed, 18 Jan 2017 22:44:07 EST Stubborn as a mule. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6299982 Remember Pharaoh? He wouldn't let the Israelites out of Egypt to worship the Lord, so the Lord sent 10 plagues on the Egyptians and Pharaoh. The Lord could have taken Pharaoh's life, but He wanted to show Pharaoh that He had the power to do anything! It came down to the Lord taking the life of Pharaoh's firstborn son. Pharaoh's heart was still hardened. Stubbornness against God leads to disobedience. When we stop stubbornly insisting on our own way and begin submitting to God, we may be surpr... Tue, 17 Jan 2017 12:16:06 EST Not particularly caring about this winter weather. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6299623 I am not getting used to this snowy weather here in CT. A couple of days of below freezing and then highs of 40's-50's. I know it's about the same thing in KY, but warmer temps in KY. There aren't that many days in a row that the temps are 32 or below. 2 times now I've had to clear the snow off my car and a path to get out of the drive-way to go to church. I'm in the house mjore days ina row here than I was in KY because of the cold. <BR> <BR> If my house in KY doesn't sell, which it's been ... Mon, 16 Jan 2017 23:14:57 EST Woke up to more snow on the ground this morning. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6298679 Wasn't expecting that! It took me about 10 minutes to clear the snow off my car before I was able to leave for church. Glad I went though. It was an awesome service! Sun, 15 Jan 2017 15:58:44 EST Auburn vs. Kentucky http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6298142 The game was exciting. The WILDCATS won their 15th game.

It wasn't too bad though. It just drizzled. It's supposed to get colder on Saturday. Hopefully no more snow.

I learned a lot, but could probably do the challenge again and learn some more. I joined a fit and fiber challenge today. I am willing to learn a lot from this challenge as well. Sparkpeople has so much to offer for us to learn as well as the numerous challenges we can choose from. Maybe each Sparker should take up a Sparkpeople challenge as well as the ones they set for themselves. Happy challenges everyone... Mon, 9 Jan 2017 22:50:09 EST GIVING TILL IT HURTS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6293872 Obeying God may often be quite a struggle because it may mean giving up something that we truly want. We should not expect our obedience to God to be easy or to come naturally. Just as fire refines ore to extract precious metals, God refines us through difficult circumstances. When tested, we can complain or we can obey, trusting God as we try to see how He is teaching us. Sun, 8 Jan 2017 13:05:44 EST Is God Fair? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6293340 Take time today to recount God's acts of mercy and love for you.Thank Him for NOT giving you what you deserve and instead giving you what you don't deserve----forgiveness and eternal life through Christ. It certainly isn't "fair" but isn't that great? Sat, 7 Jan 2017 16:41:38 EST Please wait..... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6292599 We all hate that word, but remember that God gave Sarah and Abraham a child at an old age. Sarah was 90 and Abraham was 100. God will do what is right for us in His timing, not ours. Problems could arise if we take matters into our own hands. Learn to wait. Consider what God might be teaching us in the process. Obey God, and trust Him for the outcome. <BR> <em>458</em> <em>458</em> Fri, 6 Jan 2017 13:07:17 EST DO YOU TRUST ME? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6291906 God promised to bless Abram and to make him great. There was one condition to this promise, however: Abram had to do what God wanted him to do (Genesis 12:2). This meant leaving his home and friends and traveling to a new land, where God promised to build a great nation from Abram's family. Abram obeyed, walking away from his house, his comfort zone, accepting God's promise of even greater blessings in the future. Abram believed God, and he demonstrated his trust through his actions. <BR> <B...

Her pain meds are gone. She is a massage therapist and is back to work, but her shoulder has soreness the next day after a massage. She has a little more soreness than usual. She said she can bare with it. The insurance company of the lady that hit her has yet to be in contact with the witness to hear their side. Her car is in the shop, but they can't touch it... Wed, 4 Jan 2017 14:50:30 EST SHINE THE SPOTLIGHT http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6291205 It's ok to shine the spotlight on you for a short time. The spotlight should be shining on Jesus ALL the time! Wed, 4 Jan 2017 13:26:08 EST WARNING http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6290306 <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/2120848f-7502-45f2-8ca0-d7012d29adc6.jpg"> Noah and his family built an ark in obedience to God, in response to His warning that the earth would be destroyed. No one listened to Noah about God destroying the earth, so God saved ONLY Noah's family. When will YOU listen to God? No one knows when God will come back in the clouds to catch His believers away! Are you ready? Tue, 3 Jan 2017 10:55:12 EST BROTHERLY HATE http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6289462 What happens when we let anger and jealousy rule. Cain killed Abel We can kill someone in our minds with anger and jealousy. God says, even if we think about it, we've done it. Don't let anger and jealousy get the best of you. Stop and think about what you want to say before you say it.

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 12:47:15 EST Kentucky is playing Ole Miss tonight. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6286986 Kentucky's stats are 10-2. Ole Miss' stats are 9-3. Kentucky lost to Louisville last Wednesday night by 3. Maybe the KY boys have practiced hard this week and we will win tonight. Thu, 29 Dec 2016 12:19:13 EST Unspoken prayers answered. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6286526 I was praying and thinking hard on what God wanted me to do about staying in CT or moving back to KY. Well, yesterday I spoke to my realtor and she is going to let me out of my contract. My house has been on the market for 6 months and she knows my situation here in CT. She says I can legally break my contract with no financial penalties. I also have VERY good friends in KY who are willing to drive to CT and move me back to KY. I guess these 2 things are a good sign that I am supposed to move... Wed, 28 Dec 2016 14:16:31 EST Prayers needed. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6285998 My daughter Heidi had an accident last night and because of pain meds mixing in with other meds, she can not care for her girls. Mother-in-law to the rescue though til tomorrow night. Thank God for blessings! She also has no car to drive. Not that she is going anywhere.

I previously bought some shirts from dresslily.com. I love the shirts, so I will use the gift card to buy some more. Mon, 26 Dec 2016 11:50:18 EST First Christmas I have ever spent alone. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6285275 Just me, church services this morning, laundry, vegetables for lunch, reading "NOT A FAN", watching the Ravens and the Steelers game, a lot of thinking, and trying to stay warm. Have a Merry Christmas.

It's been 37 degrees since I got up as well. The high for today is supposed to be 43. I don't think it will reach it.

It was a very exciting game. There were 10 ties and about 11 lead changes. It was a GREAT game. There were good plays from players on both teams. Good job Cardinals. Thu, 22 Dec 2016 15:30:58 EST The WILDCATS are playing the Cardinals tonight. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6283831 The game is on ESPN tonight at 7 EST. I am recording the game because I will be in church tonight. After church I am visiting with extended family to kill time. I don't want to come home and watch the end of the game. I want to see the whole game. I will watch it when I get home. I wonder who will win? <BR> <em>299</em> <em>299</em> <em>299</em> <em>299</em> Wed, 21 Dec 2016 14:04:15 EST I watched the KY vs. NC game last night. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6282935 That's the kind of game I like to watch. It kept me watching closely. The biggest lead was a 10 point spread, but it didn't last long. My WILDCATS ended up winning. Good game CATS!

I'm helping my daughter get a list together for the food she wants for Thanksgiving dinner. We will start making pies on Monday. I hope everyone has a great weekend! Sat, 19 Nov 2016 11:19:58 EST Waking up with a headache is no fun! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6269123 I woke up about 7 this morning and had a headache. I dozed here and there for another 2 hours and that didn't help. I got up and took a hot shower. That didn't help either. I ate some breakfast and drank some hot tea. That didn't help either. I took 3 naproxin sodium hoping that would help. Nothing doing! Well, I had to go out and get a few things done. Sometime during the day the headache subsided. I felt much better. I am writing my blog at 8:30 at night and I still feel headache free.
