SparkPeople Home Is Where The Heart Is ! Team Messageboard Hello Friends, Come on home to where your heart is ! SparkPeople Home Is Where The Heart Is ! Team Messageboard Summer is Here! The air conditioner went out so I'm sitting in the house with the windows open tonight. The repairman couldn't finish the job today because it started to rain. Hopefully he can finish it tomorrow before the afternoon heat. This is not the time to be without air. It is nice to hear the sounds of a country night. At least the Whip-poor-will isn't so loud tonight that I can't watch TV. I love the country! Tue, 21 May 2013 22:34:30 EST Invite A Friend Hello friends! Come on in and bring a friend with you!

More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. <BR> <BR> <BR> Sun, 3 Feb 2013 13:59:32 EST Healthy Snacks Thought it would be fun to share some of the healthy snacks we have in our dieting recipe arsenal... Let's face it - There are some days when a between meals snack is a "gotta have"... It sure helps to have something healthy to grab for those times. Sat, 2 Feb 2013 09:30:41 EST Cooking the Old Fashion Way 1. Frugality <BR> <BR> Old-fashioned cooking is generous, sumptuous and sensual, but it always declares its frugality. The reason pot roast, not prime rib, epitomizes old-fashioned cooking is that pot roast brings out the best in the cheapest cuts of meat. Old-fashioned cooking is produced within the limits of a strict budget, and its strength comes from those limits. You can’t cook just anything for dinner—the budget won’t allow it. <BR> <BR> Frugality is the discipline that structures th... Thu, 31 Jan 2013 11:51:39 EST What's Cook'in Mama !

Tue, 29 Jan 2013 09:19:09 EST Hi--giving you a tour of my favorite rooms Rose created this team out of pure love, so I am very honored to be a part of it. <BR> <BR> My home is very special to my family and I. The house I live in was actually the first building in the village where I live. It was originally a saw mill. In 1832 it became a house for the Rail Road (George Pullman) families--it was their summer home. On January 1, 1910, a member of my family bought this house. And, as you can figure out, this house has been in my family for over 100 years. Need... Tue, 29 Jan 2013 08:51:35 EST Come into the Kitchen & Chat Home, what a very special word! <BR> <BR> A home can be defined in many ways. It’s a residence, a family dwelling place, and often times a refuge from the outside world. It’s made of walls, and windows, and doors, which can keep people out, keep people in, or open freely so all may enter and leave as they wish. The concept of home has been characterized in many ways over time. <BR> <BR> Home is where the heart is. <BR> Home Sweet home <BR> There is no place like home. <BR> Home is where you...
