  • Icy Wednesday = more Biology work

    2/21/2018 10:06:52 AM, by ELIZABETHBECK1

    Yeah... I'm that mom. They don't like it when I dole out extra work on days like today but they DO like the benefits of having a slow day or instead of a "snow day" we have a "sun day". Ok, here is a legitimate question. My son, Silas, 14 is extremely smart. A professor at a local colleg... Read more

  • Do you drink soda?

    2/16/2018 11:14:05 AM, by ELIZABETHBECK1

    I admit, I used to be a HUGE soda fan. Mt. Dew was my soda of choice. I'm happy to say that I am now soda free - "free" being the lose term here. I MAY have a soda once in a blue moon, like if I am sick or I need to take a pill in the car and my hubby has one. Something like that but I don't buy sod... Read more

  • Fiber - Oh my!

    2/14/2018 10:14:21 AM, by ELIZABETHBECK1

    Kashi GoLean Cereal and a Banana for breakfast. 2 cups of black coffee. I have to say, the cereal was surprisingly good and filling. The goal of Week 1 in the Full Plate Diet Course we are taking is to increase fiber and water into the diet. To do this, we are to eat 2 fruits equaling 2/... Read more

    eto-no-bake-cookies/ I made these yesterday. The peanut butter ones. I also did not add the fake sugars to it. I might need to do that if I make chocolate ones to counteract the bitterness but there was no need for it in the pnut butter ones! The next time I m... Read more

  • No internet yesterday, No Heat today

    2/9/2018 9:06:03 AM, by ELIZABETHBECK1

    This week has been full of trials. For every good news we got, something would counteract it. Yesterday we didn't have internet until the afternoon. So, no online classes for the kids. It would have been helpful if the phone company would have sent out an alert the day before to inform us they... Read more

  • Improvement across the board

    2/7/2018 8:58:33 AM, by ELIZABETHBECK1

    This cold this year is different from others I have experienced. No coughing just an outpouring of snot and a massive sinus headache which turned into a sinus infection. Going to netti pot later and see if that helps the headache. The antibiotics are still working. The eye drops are helping the pink... Read more

    2/6/2018 10:51:50 AM, by ELIZABETHBECK1

    Yesterday I roasted the butternut squash for soup and I roasted the spaghetti squash for supper. However, this is what really happened: I took out the butternut squash and ate it ... well... a good 1/3 of it, straight out of the skin (like a potato). The spaghetti squash got roasted and t...

  • I ate poorly while sick

    2/5/2018 8:45:51 AM, by ELIZABETHBECK1

    I ate the carbs, I ate the sugars, I ate the white no-no's. Basically I ate crap while I was in and out of my Nyquil coma. I also didn't stay hydrated pretty well. I had this whole plan of what I would eat and stay hydrated if and when I got sick and it all went right out the window! Why... Read more

    My verse of the day: I have a heart for missions. A heart that wants to tell people there is a God that loves them, who is there for them, who wants to be in a relationship with them. I have a heart that wants to tell others how easy it is to reach out to God, and have that relationship w... Read more
