I would really like to do my mostly daily Quiet Time Bible studies in blog form. I just haven't figured out how to achieve that on here. And I don't want to do it elsewhere, because it seems so complicated..... lots of html talk for simple thing... Read more
My hubby could have had a bad car crash last night he told me. Somehow he managed to stay on the road, and although the car went all over the place, oncoming lane and all, he did not go off the road into the woods. I thank God for watching out f... Read more
The Armor of God
When God sends a message, he does a great job, lol. With me trying to grow spiritually, I am trying to not get involved in things I should not get involved in, and keeping my mouth shut until directed otherwise by the Lord. Not easy at all. So t... Read more
Veggies, veggies everywhere..... And stacking wood.....
I started logging my food today. Feel like a million dollars, what a high it is to write everything down. Not that I ate specifically great today, or even made choices that remotely bring me in the right direction.... however, just being back on... Read more
What a beautiful morning
I just joined the BLC12 Challenge Team that runs for 12 weeks, and they are serious, lol. Good. I need some inspiration. My hubby and I weighed ourselves this morning, and it wasn't pretty. Well, he of course is perfect, no matter what the scale... Read more
Aren't Sunday mornings the best thing the good Lord created? Time to reflect, plan, relax, get energized, have family time, have some tea and sit in bed with my laptop and a pot of tea with soy milk. Life is grand. Now I just need to figure out ... Read more
We had a large power outage, during which we rediscovered the YMCA, because we needed to shower somewhere. Funny enough, the girls reminded me how much fun we used to have at the Y, and since they have been complaining about not being in the sha... Read more
Over a year later....
Well it is funny, I have not been blogging her for over a year. And the family room is still that hideous pink, my papers are still unorganized, and I don't have a new desk, never went back to the YMCA. So guess what.... I will just pick up wher... Read more
I am trying to get more organized finally. I have a few extra jobs, treasurer for the Water Account (12 families share a water pump for lake water) and Corresponding Secretary for the dog club. I bought some folders and dividers, and have begun ... Read more
The girls are working right now, but I decided to go back home and go shopping on the way. I found that the Martha Stewart Food magazine is the best I have ever subscribed to. All the meals have very few ingredients, I can leave the meat out ver... Read more
Toning up while working....
I find that my work is so hectic and involves so much running around, bending, lifting, hanging on to pulling dogs, that I can't even keep too much fat on me. It has melted away. Now wouldn't it be great if I could find a very easy way to tone u... Read more
Random thoughts for today.....
Losing voice, early morning, beautiful sunrise, fog on the fields, baby bunnies, happy waggy tails, favorite cat finally up for adoption to good home, warm loving family, proud of my girls, huggy husband, can'... Read more
Back after a long break
My parents are back in Germany after 6 weeks of vacation with us. My garden looks lovely, my yard is finally fenced in, my house is quiet again and my dogs are walking around puzzling over the loss of these extra nice people. I have been removed... Read more
I have been looking around my neighborhood and found some wonderfully landscaped houses. I am not very good with my green thumb, let alone the planning of it all, but I will grab my camera and go out there to take pictures of what I would love ... Read more
My girls just finished their English projects.... one about Catcher in the Rye by Salinger and one about the Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Their views on life are amazing to me, and it is very satisfying to me as a mother to witness th... Read more
