Hi Irene- I am glad you wrote to Mani again. Sure hope you hear back from someone
And pray she is ok!
To answer your question-I make up an oatmeal mix -got the recipe from my daughter in a Denver and Sparks actually came out with a similar mix.
I Keep refrigerated because the flax seeds and nuts could get rancid.
If you have whole flax seeds they need to be ground before adding.
To serve-you just add equal amounts of hot water to oatmeal mix and let sit a minute or two.
Delicious and nutritious. Enjoy!




Choose wisely what we do with our bodies in the way of food choices and activity and we can be rewarded with good health
Thank God for our blessings!

Ree that lady sounds like a good friend to have. We should cherish our friendships.
As we get older we realize we need people even though we might be as independent as all get out. It took me awhile to learn that.

Pat Yes, back to the normal backache instead of the excruciating one. I am so glad of that.
I was afraid I had broken another vertebrae.
Say about your oatmeal mix. Do you eat it as a cereal or as a trail mix. I have some flaxseeds that a friend gave me but don't know what to do with them.
I will get the results of my tests December the 4th when I have the appointment with the doctor.
Glad your grandson is with you. You know we independent people like to think we need no one but I finally realized I do.
I spark mailed Mani again and said if anyone read that and had news of her to please let us know as we miss her so much.
I saw an article on Yahoo telling that several foods are better for you than Kale but did not read it.
Have a good day.
Irene

Hi ladies! Yes! This morning I got up at 5:30 to get my ' purposeful' walking in. 30 minutes done by 6:30. Also made up a big batch of oatmeal mix with raisins, and flaxseeds and nuts. I will add dried cranberries when I get them , later today-hopefully.

Sorry FAY, we all have those senior moments . That kind of 'non-purposeful' walking is frustrating. !!! It feels MUCH better to walk for our own good health!

Irene, I am so glad you are back to feeling more like your self! Did you ever get the results from your tests?

REE, how kind of your friend to offer to help anyway she can when your family is away. I think it is important to actually follow through and let her do something for you-(pick up grocery items, perhaps) . It will do her as much good as it does you:)
Wonderful that your DH remembered his art skills.! Maybe time to put an apron on him and let him go at it-mess or not?

Our DD and Her DH flew out to visit our granddaughter in Calif this morning. Our college grandson is here keeping track of our needs In their absence. Not that we think we need it but nice to know he cares. He is especially looking forward to picking our favorite tacos at HIS favorite MEXICAN restaurant:)

Thinking of Lois, and Roberta and missing Mani!!

I know---I give lots of advice.
Please feel free to give me some too.
I need all the help I can get!

Hugs, Pat

My son and wife are back in UK but stopped off at a wedding in Portsmouth . South of Englanc Coast, home Sunday evening .
I was touched yesterday a church friend of my dil saw me grocery buying.stopper for a chat. Then told me as my nearest family are all away this weekend I must let het know if we need any help, I thought how kind of her. She spoke to my husband too and he told her he used to be a good artist, just said it out of the blue. She saw what he's like now and told him he still is a great artist. That pleased him. What a nice lady,. Ree

My NON-purposeful walking:

Yesterday: Left my keys at checkout and did not realize it until I reached the car.

Today: Parked in mall lot, forgetting which aisle. Only off by 4.

That is good Marsha. There is a road leading out of Texas like the one going in also. You were so kind to take the 93 year old friend to Walgreen's.
I know you are a kind person and I am glad Judy is with you to help.

Hi Ree. Yes, I saw snow north of New York City on the computer. I think it was six foot drifts. They said now the hard part is shoveling out. I would call and ask about the tests if I were you as sometimes I think they just forget.

Good morning to all. Ree, yes we do miss them while away, but like you say, they do need a break. The weather is chilly here this morning, I dressed warm for Church Ladies Circle, and then a lady friend called me last night and asked if I could take her to Walgreens to get her daughter a GC, and some little BD gifts. She is 93 and doesn't drive. She is a sweetheart. So after my Ladies circle I will go and pick her up. We have to go through our crafts for the crafts show, We rented a table at a large Catholic church for Sunday and Judy and I will set up Sat. after she gets iff work, there will be 2 ladies to open Sunday morning, I will go after church. I think we will load the things in my car today so they will be ready to go when Judy gets home Sat evening and not have to go back to the church to get them.Judy will do the lifting as I can't. I can help setup the table though.

Hope everyone has a good day, Stay warm and well, and so glad I live where I live, This old body wouldn't take that much snow and cold.People complain about out heat in the summer, but I tell them that there is a road leading out of Florida, like the one coming in. :)

Pat, keep us posted on the surgery date. It is amazing to me how they can take take a huge tree. I know when mine fell in the front yard on my car, it was amazing to watch them cut it down.

Congratulations on getting in your walk. With this ankle I am limited in walking,

Hope everyone is staying warm. It is to get in the 30's tonight. Then in the 80's Sunday.
Got hair done this morning, then went to Dollar Tree

Have a good night's rest.

Hi to all . Hope you had interesting day. We did here. Our weather is chilly and was sunny today. Glad we didn't get weather like Marsha had.

Speaking of DH'S REE, .
Mine spent the day watching the tree trimmers take down branches from several trees in our DD and SIL'S home next door.
one whole tree closest to our driveway was taken down.
3 men on the ground cleaning up and one brave soul climbed a tall ladder with his chain saw and cutting limb by limb before taking the whole tree down. Scared me but he lived through.! Hope he is paid more than the other men:)

My own accomplishments today were my 30 minute walk in house,
plus made my own delicious asparagus soup . I can't eat the soups I made for DH as it contains dairy. . a DR Furhman recipe, with cashews and almonds and dates. Very good . No dairy.

Sadly for us--our Lady Bears team lost their game with Kentucky. Our freshman team is still learning But congrats to Kentucky .!
It was An away game so We watched on TV .

No call yet from my doctor as to final surgery date. Maybe tomorrow.

Pat


Oh Marsha---I love your new picture- granddaughter?

Good morning to all, and Ree so glad you got out, and wish I were there to go to the thrift store. I love them. I donate to League of Mercy when I have anything to give away. We have a Super Goodwill store not far from me, and they have great guys, and a lot of new merchandise.

WBBL, go to get hair done. Then to Dollar Tree. Hope everyone stays warm and well. Not sure the temperature out. They are saying around 38 in the morning. I have the heater going to take the chill off, I like to sleep in a cold BD. Don't run it at night.

Hello on Tuesday, it's a nice morning so I took dh ona little walk to local thrift shop, I took in a coat he never wears but is as new. I am sure it will soon go to someone who needs a warm coat, I took some books in too and bought 3 more to read, it wasn't far but as soon as we got back he was asleep in his chair. Everything wears him out now,
Have a good day, Ree

Pat, a big pat on the back for your eating habits. Nice of the doctor to compliment you. That means a lot.

It rained here real hard, had tornado warnings but have been raised now. I get hair done in the morning. Our garage sale went well, and no more. We donated the leftovers. :)

Had a good time with Geo. Jr. and Karen, Judy had to be to work at 11:00. She helped set up.

Hope everyone has a great evening. I guess I will watch Dancing with the Stars.

Hugs and prayers to all.

Hi ladies-, Irene, REE, Lois, FAY, Marsha, Peggy, And those I missed! Hope you are doing well and caring for yourself first!

Yes, Irene- every day is a gift from God! And so glad your garage sale went well, Marsha!

great idea, REE, to get started on a Christmas cards That always takes time just getting the list together first. !

Well like the rest of you, this has been a very busy day!

Up at 5:00-got my purposeful walking done and personal care out of the way.
DTexas D drove me to my appointment 20 miles away for the colorectal surgeon for the early morning appointment. She was very knowledgeable and I have complete confidence in her. She has to check first with my colorectal surgeon in Grand Rapids but hopes to repair my relapse by end of Dec. She told me what to do in meantime.

She made the comment that I certainly don't look 88 and asked if I always eat well and exercise.? My DD assured her that I do and am actually a vegetarian and walk daily too. She said it shows.( I just wanted to share that with you as a reminder that our efforts do pay off in the long run of things. )

This PM - after a nap-I got the wash caught up, dried and put away. Did both breakfast and lunch dishes .( Dh had made the bed!!!)

Our Lady Bears are playing in Kentucky this evening and it is televised on ESPN2 at 6:00 so DD is coming over to join us. We may order pizza for dinner.

Good evening ,Pat

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

I thought this was so timely for all. We take one day at a time and show love to Spark friends, other friends and other friends. Use it to get healthier.

Have you stopped to consider that today is a special gift from God? Sometimes, our days can be so full and busy that we forget how fragile life really is. The little things try to creep in and steal our peace and joy. Maybe something doesn’t go your way, or someone says something upsetting. Even traffic can cause you to lose focus if you let it. We have to remember that each day is ordained by Almighty God. If we choose to focus on the wrong things, we’ll miss the blessing that each day has to offer.

Today, don’t let the precious moments of life pass you by. Don’t wait for holidays and birthdays to show people that you care. Remember, each day is unique and irreplaceable. You have been given time that can be invested or wasted; hours that can be used or misused. That’s why the psalmist prayed to God, “Teach us to number our days.” He was saying, “Teach us to value every moment we’ve been given.”

Hi! Rainy day in the neighborhood here.
Brooklyn , our new ShihTzu doesn't seem to mind.
We are making progress . Today she went to door and waited TIL I let her out. I give Her a tiny Milk Bone treat when she comes back to door to come in.

I slept in TIL 6:30 this morning. Did my 30 minutes of purposeful walking. After Breakfast and dishes, I assembled and made Apple, Bean, a Flaxseed muffins .for first time. Gluten free-no flour. They taste ok but fall apart too easily. Next time I will just add beans to my flour muffins.

I hope you are all having a great SUNDAY ! We are alone today as DD and hubby went to Austin to visit their daughter and then to nursing home to visit his mom.

I am about to fix lunch for DH and me. Different soups for both of us. His is low Oxalate.

Talk later, Pat

Down here it is supposed to get up to 77 but when and if I go to church it will be colder of course. Then after Sunday it is to start dropping again. I hope both of our doctor's appointments go well Pat.

Good evening to all, I am tired, but a good tired. Just finished soaking my feet. They are so sore. Hope I am able to get them in my shoes for church tomorrow. We had a good yard sale, a lot of neighbors coming over, and then a friend had a neighbor that came and took all that we didn't sell and carted it off. What a blessing. Geo. got the garage all straightened out, and looks like someone lives here now. LOL

Glad it is over, and we had perfect weather, couldn't ask for any better. I am shutting down and going to watch some TV before bedtime. Haven't even looked at my mail yet.

Hope everyone had a good day, not sure the BUCS play tomorrow or not. Want to go to church in the morning if my feet fit in my shoes. :)

Hugs and prayers to all.

So sorry that you went through such confusion at DR. Office, Irene. But glad it was finally straightened out!

I too have a doctors appointment Monday. Irene. I am super happy about the fact our family doctor got me an appointment already Monday with a colorectal specialist in Temple at Scott and White Hospital . And a lady doctor as well! Now I am hoping for a pretty quick new surgey date too. We will see .

Yes, REE, you MUST care for yourself too. Make a list of the foods you can eat and plan a couple recipes .Planning ahead is the key!

Is the weather warming up now in PA ---FAY? It is here. Suppose to get up to 50 today here and 60's by Wed. More like what we came to TEXAS for. Still can't put our planter boxes back out as nights may be freezing for a while.

Marsha, I see the cold didn't make it that far down to you. You are probably chillier but not freezing. How did your day go?
Pat

Today I went to pre register for my cat scan but they had ordered an MRI from the doctor's office. She ordered Cat Scan but whoever wrote it up put MRI Where I went they said they don't do MRI's so they called them and they were to fax the new order. Finally she said well the nurse had gone out to lunch so I might have to wait 2 hours. That meant I would have to go another day. Well, I started out but she called me back. The fax was in the tray but she had not seen it. I don't know where some people went to school. When I was young many couldn't go to college because of lack of finance, now they go but do they learn.
I have to drink something an hour before the appointment and the appointment is for Monday.

I had lunch with friends and they paid for my lunch. Came home and took a nice nap, then Sparked, read, did my dishes, etc.

Hi on Saturday , life plods on. Still waiting for test results on my husband.
Pat my husband only wants mush or mash type meals now, I do sometimes make two meals but not always, it's harder work cooking for two dufferent needs but I must start doing my own meals too .
I have stuck to my daily exercise plan so can polish that halo if not the eating one.
Have a good weekend. Ree

It's been a day of socializing and eating. The Veterans Day celebration was very moving. It started with The Marines Hymn played on 5 bag pipes followed by the presentation of flags. Then The Star Spangled Banner and Taps. Later they played Amazing Grace. I have heard bagpipes outdoors before and was not sure how they might sound indoors; apparently they can adjust the volume.
A panel of 5 representing different wars answered questions while the rest of us ate.Even some students from a local school skyped (sic).some questions. Feeling very patriotic and supporting of the military.
Home for a while and fell asleep for an hour, then waited for Amanda, my granddaughter and her son, Evan to pick me up for a supper of tacos. It had started to rain. By the time I was brought home the grass areas were totally white and it is still snowing. At 20 months old Evan got to see and feel snow that he probably forgot from last year.

Hi REE, so glad to hear you are taking care of you-with exercising- too.
Hope your DH gets straightened out with his problems soon.
My DH is on a low Oxalate diet for his kidney stone problem- so I am now making two kinds of meals each time- one for me and one for him!:)
This afternoon made up a batch of creamy asparagus soup for him. Tomorrow plan to Make a low fat non dairy version for me:)
This morning I walked 30 minutes in house .
Our low temperature will be 21 degrees. Setting record lows for Texas.
But that is super warm compared to the rest of the country!
You have a great day likewise!
Pat.

I can't get my e-mail again. I can only get start on Spark and from there can get teams and points then have to go to the chats. Can't find my devotions so didn't put them on.
It says blank page again. I think my computer is old. I'm going to ask Jesus for a new computer for Christmas.

Good for you, REE , for setting up a routine that includes exercise of some kind! Great idea !
This will be good for your soul as well as your body!

Thanks Irene! Yes, our new team of freshman with only a couple of returning player did alright !
We have another home game FRIDAY evening. And the good news for us is that for the first time, 8 of our AWAY games will be televised!

FAY, I was busy in the kitchen too this morning, baking up the apple muffins again. This time one batch that DH can eat (-all low Oxilate- ) white flower, real sugar, dairy milk, flaxseed topping! ( because of his kidney stone history)
Plus a batch for me and DD'S family to share, - whole grain, Stevia sweetened, Soy milk, and walnuts topping.

This morning our summer-caregiver- DD -took off with a Rental car for Dallas where- after visiting friends-will take a train for home from there. We will miss her!
Now we are still in good hands as far as 'watching out for us-our Texas DD is in charge! :)
