Hello everyone! the weather here has been VERY WINDY!! Today it has died down some, and it is about 30 degrees. I hope all of you are having a blessed New Year, and are reaching some of your goals. May the Lord lift up the light of His countenance upon you and be gracious to you forevermore!

I don't know why, but I'm feeling a little cabin crazy. I mean, it's not like we got snowed in like the rest of you, but I feel like that for some reason. Maybe I need a new hobby...

Three and a half pounds of fluid gone this morning. Now to get to the real weight!

Have a great day, all...

Vicky, I agree/ Winter will show up and Easter will look like Christmas.

Music group comes today and I pray some one will take over some of the work. If not we may just have to fold.

I have 2 more weeks before my yearly check up or 6 month check up. I hope to be back at my driver's license weight. I am 3 pound up still.

Prayers for all to stay healthy.

Had quite a day back at work, but I made it thru. Tomorrow should be easier...

I gained 3 pounds just sitting around for 5 days. I know a lot of it is fluid, but I hate it all the same. Started back on my whey protein, too. I wasn't going to but my daughter didn't like the kind she bought so she brought it over here. Chocolate and peanut butter. She hasn't been able to eat anything chocolate or chocolate flavored since she had her lap band out and her gastric sleeve done. This is a good thing...

Supposed to be colder tomorrow and Friday, then back up into the 40's for the weekend. Not much of a winter, but that's okay with me. I can't help but think we're going to get slammed in April, though...

Have a lovely evening, all...

Sunny here too, and beautiful. Thunderstorms predicted for tonight, though. Strange weather...

I told my boss I'd be back to work tomorrow. Hope I made the right choice. I do know that I'm tired of sitting around...

Hope you all are enjoying sunshine like I am...

When you have a foot, ankle, or leg hurting you just cant do much. With an arm, hand or other part you can still walk around. I learned with my knee problem that even when I tried to keep all thing where I could reach them something had to be gotten that took all my effort to walk.
I pray for healing for you ankle.

Today is busy and start up again into the music and activities. I hope someone will decide to take over the printing and calling for the music group because I need to step down. They meet here at my house on Thursday.


Many things to just finish up today.
Prayers for all to stay well

Called off work for tomorrow. There's no way I could run around like I usually do. Still very swollen and very colorful today.

I feel like I've basically wasted the whole month of January. What I have lost, I have once again regained, but I'm not quitting! I need to quit letting Bob go to the grocery store, because I'm a little pickier about what I buy. Right now, I have chips, cheese curls, apple pie and moon pies in this house. Lord, give me strength! I know my protein levels are down, too.

Tomorrow is a new day...

Today is the last day of January. Where did all those day go. One month of this new year. How are we doing so far???? I heed to measure my foods more accurately. My yearly check up is coming up in two weeks. So far my doctor will be pleased.

Tomorrow I get to go back to the gym. I also need to really sit down and work up an exercise plan for home. We are probably going to have more bad days and the gym is too far to get there.

Blessings to all today.

We drove to a resort near Hedgesville, WV. My niece (my brother/'s daughter) has a condo there. She goes over from Baltimore frequently. My brother was not feeling too good so they didn't come. We had a nice visit It is about 2 1/2 hours away. We just now got back. This was a good day to drive as not much traffic and the roads were clear. It was sunshine most of the way over.

Our Lord is good at answering prayers and finally our niece feels good and has a good partner. My brother has been so ties up with his second wife and her children's needs that it had caused some problems. Now things are looking up.

Tomorrow is our church annual meeting after service. It will be a review of the year and plans. I already know that we will have a new lesson on Sunday mornings at 9 am before church and service on Wednesday following a soup and salad dinner. .I say I give up cooking in lent. We eat at the Kiwanis meeting on Tuesday and then Wednesday at our church. On Friday we go to the St. Francis Catholic church for the fish dinner. We have a lot of friends there.

You talk of spring and I am thinking it can't be too soon.
God bless you all. Sue

It's a wonderful thing to be prayed for by people we know and love.

Went to the Boot Box to look at motorcycle jackets for Bob. While I was there, I decided to try on a new pair of motorcycle boots for me. Had them on, picked one foot up, and the other ankle bent and snapped...instant pain. Good thing there was a bench behind me. I tried to downplay it, so Bob went on shopping. We both came home with new leather jackets and I came home with one very swollen, very sore ankle. I left the boots at the store...

Stopped at the daughter's on the way home and got to play with my grandpuppy. I miss his brother, Bowtie, very much.

So here I am, home again after a lovely day out, despite the ankle incident. Hope you all are having a wonderful day...

Hi Vicky:

I don't have a cottage to think about but yesterday I wore a skirt I usually wear in the spring. It has a black background but is full of pink flowers and green leaves and makes me think about spring. It is a long skirt so to keep warmer, I wore a pair of pinky-purple tights under neath. I told everyone it was my duty to hasten spring by wearing this outfit. We have not had a bad winter at all, but my thoughts were for spring too. I get all excited going to this certain park in spring and I have been thinking about it. It has a babbling brook that runs over some rocks and I love love love that sound. This park is small and it is quite easy to drive by. I am going to take my phone and make a small video of it as soon as spring hatches.

Sue: I am at the library with my grandkids and I showed my grandaughter your picture of the two "Elsas" from Frozen and she said Awesome!

In two weeks I will have my new orthotics and I will go out and buy some good running shoes to go with.

Terry and I went for prayer as clients to our Healing Rooms, where we are usually volunteers. We both had people circle around us that we know and love and it felt so good to let go and cry and receive healing prayer. PS Terry did not cry just me. I am living up to my nickname, "Soggy Eyeballs" from my family when I was a teen. It is good to cast all our cares on the Lord for He really does hear our prayers.

Blessings to you one and all!



Ann

It's snowing here in PA! The yard was green last night and now it's white. Bob & I just got back from the Boot Box. He found a couple pair of boots in his size, men's 7, and since that size is hard to find, he bought a pair. We have this ongoing discussion about how many pairs of boots, and hats, he has. It always comes back to how many teapots I have, but I remind him that I don't buy teapots. I get them as gifts most of the time. My grand kids have even got in on it! Some day I will have to count them and see what I've got.

Had eggs and toast for breakfast. Hopi just dances around the kitchen when she hears the squeak of the egg carton. That's the only people food I cook for her.

My mind has been on the cottage so much lately. I can't wait until it gets warm enough to go up. I have so many things I want to get done up there this spring, so I can relax and enjoy sitting on the porch swing with a good book the rest of the summer.

Enjoy the rest of your day, all...

Vicky

Vicky that is a great thing to have finished. My husband volunteers to do tax forms for people. He is part of the AARP program and works at a local Senior center starting February. He has done this for several years now. I am glad because he does our taxes too.

Light dusting of snow today. Cold but supposed to warm up in a few days. Up and down temperature and we all get sick.

I am sewing today. I didn't quite get enough cup and bowl pot holders done before Christmas. This last week seemed like a long one. I think it was all the snow and the extra hours of exercise.

Prayers for all,
Sue

Hi, all! It's great to see everyone here! I've just spent the last 2 hours filing my taxes, federal, state and local. So glad to have that job behind me. Now I just sit back and wait for my refund...

No school for us tomorrow. I really am thankful we haven't had to use any snow makeup days. Maybe just this once we will make it thru a school year without them.

Well, now I'm going to relax and get this kink out of my shoulders from all the tension of doing taxes. Have a lovely evening, all...

Ann - Wonderful news. Thank for the update. God answers prayer and heals. Prayers for you eye sight now too.

Vicky I am glad you didn't get this heavy snow drop. We have had a busy time these last few days. The melting snow now has left a lot of water.

Dave is out pushing the snow further back. I guess more is coming later today.

Stay safe and warm.

Greetings and salutations to you. My husband is no longer on iv antibiotics but will only take oral antibiotics for 8 more days. Everything is healing slowly. Thanks Jesus

I had my three month follow up after the three laser eye surgeries I had. Well news is not as good as I had hoped. I have to get an appt. to see the eye surgeon again. I had a little cry in the car but am trying to see the positive. I am feisty and will lean on my Lord again for good results.

Yesterday, I went to the physiotherapist for treatment on my knees. I have four exercises to do and they are all laying down on the bed while I do them. Talk about the heights of laziness or at least it sounds like it. I use a therapy band for two exercises and the last one is pretty hard. Liting up my bum while band is across my knees and then stretching out as far as the band will let me. I am supposed to do 15 but I think 9 was it. I do feel them working though.

Tomorrow I go to the chiropodist to get my feet looked at probably need orthotics.

Yup, getting the 50,000 mile checkup.

Weigh in was today, but I missed it because I was at the optometrist.

Sue: I love your pics especially the one about the girl dressed like the girl in Frozen. My grandaughter would absolutely be over the moon she loves all things frozen.

Glad everyone is ok after that bad storm in the states. We in Southwestern Ontario did not get the storm, just some snow. bye for now emoticon

That storm totally missed us. The sun is out today and it's supposed to be in the 40's tomorrow.

My weight is holding steady this week. It's been tough today at work since I only got about 3 hours sleep...don't know why, I just wasn't tired...

The sunshine had been a big help. you can see the blacktop driveway where we cleaned off the snow. Sue

We got 23 inches and it has taken us 2 days to plow and shovel out to the road. The road has not been plowed so we are safely staying warm at home. We can't take the car out on our deep snowy road. Blessings to all and pray you are safe. Sue

We are almost ready for the storm. to hit. I got all the rtravel things put away and the house straightened up.

Ann what good news. Our prayers are answered.

Vicky all schools here are closed again today. My daughter at Valley Community Mental Health said that they are closing at noon. I know we ate more salt and sugar while away. I think I will weigh on Monday after drinking more water.

Well, This is the trip. Dave and Katie coloring. Katie with the high school girl that dressed as Elsa. Also a picture of a horse at the Mardi Gras parade. They had so many dance clubs and horse groups. Also all the schools march. (High school, Middle school and Elementary schools) Sue

Well, Pennsylvania's governor has declared a state of emergency over this storm coming up. It's not even snowing here and the roads are clear, but we all now how quickly that can change.

Sue, traveling always causes me to retain fluid, in my legs especially. I bet in a couple of days you'll find you didn't really gain as much as you think.

Ann, I'm praising God for that good report on your husband's brain scan. God is so good!

Hopi is laying here having bad dreams from the sound of things, so I'll get back to you all later...

Looking forward to seeing those pics from your trip. Good for you Vicky.....I hope to report good news again after next Wednesday weigh in and measurements. As long as one of them moves for the better, I will be happy.

Good news, my hubby's brain scan of Jan. 15 is normal. Thank you Jesus!!!!!!!.

He did fall again two days ago -- inside this time, so he has a wound but he actually listened to me and went to urgent care yesterday and back to the cellulitis clinic today. He has iv antibiotics twice and now the visiting nurse will come to our home for five days to give five more iv antibiotic treatments and treat his wound.

A cheery hello to one and all! Lunch time for me a-coming!

Ann good for you. I just weighed in and know how much this trip added. Stilling for 4 days and then food for 4 days away was not good. However............... I was surprised that it was up only 5 pounds. Some of that is from extra sale and no exercise. My yearly check up is in Feb. so I will work it off.

Vicky good for you. Eating out always is a problem because you can't judge what amount of sugar or salt is present in the food.

It is good to be home. It was really bad yesterday morning in Knoxville when we left the hotel. Then we were okay until we got all the way up to I 79 outside of Clarksburg . All schools are closed around us. Dave is going out now to clean off the walkways and driveway.

Tomorrow I hope to post a couple pictures of the fun on our trip.

Hello, all. Today it's a little warmer, but we'll see how the new school superintendent feels about the big storm coming on Friday.

My weight is back down again(finally) but I have to work hard to keep it going down. Tonight I'm having dinner with some friends and I get nervous about that every time. This place I haven't been to before so I have no idea what I'm ordering...

Bob will be popping in to have lunch before returning to work so I have to get moving. Have a great day, all...

I am trying to be accountable here instead of sliding through another month. So I got weighed and measured today. The scale shows one pound gained, but we ate out last night a big roast beef dinner, rice, carrots. However, the measurements show some improvement.
I lost a cm off of my chest, a total of 2 cm. off my hips and one cm. off my waist.

Got to go now greetings to one and all!

We will get on the road early to try to stay ahead of it. It will be good to get home.
Small children have way too much energy and movement.

Hi everybody, quick because I must return to work.

Terry much better went for second brain scan on the l5th and his legs are much better
Sharon Terry's sister got released from hospital after 3 days. Another example of prayers working THanks be to God!
I lost 3.4 pounds the second week of my weigh in and also lost one centimeter off waist and two off of my hips. Trying to be more active.
Enjoy your vacation down south Sue, keep telling us the mercies of God Rose and Vicky keep going on like I am and we will soon be better at work and losing inch by inch pound by pound. Saying a hearty hello to one and all.

Hi! Vicky, It is a beautiful but cool day down here. This afternoon we are going to a Mardi Gras parade. I didn't know they had them now. It seems they started at the beginning of Jan. and keep going with different parades until Ash Wednesday.

I know I will be up several pounds when I get home I have to work on changing what I do sometimes too. When I am tired or too busy I eat wrong.

Praying for you because your work day is a busy one everyday. I know you come home tired. Maybe play a pick me up something for when you get home. If I do that I am not so anxious about what we have to have for dinner.

God bless you as tomorrow is Martin Luther King Day and I am sure you have that day off.

Sue, I'm glad you found somewhere warm. The weekend was warmer, but it's to get bitter cold again in a couple of days.

Finally beginning to lose weight again. This has been a real battle this time. It seems like what worked before won't work now. So I keep adjusting what I'm eating, trying to find the right stuff. It's hard to get moving when I'm up even just a couple of pounds. If I can get thru the workday, I'm not up for any other form of exercise the rest of the day. So, I have to control what I'm eating until I start losing enough that my joints will take the exercise.

Off to church, then a CMA meeting. have a lovely Sunday, all...

Vicky I think we found spring. We are at the Grand niece's 3rd birthday in Slidell and it is like summer here in Louisiana. We are going to a parade tomorrow. I only thought they had parades just before the big day of Ash Wednesday but not so. There are parades all over the area for weeks before Mardi Gas.

The Birthday party was a combination of Frozen with Elsa and Anna and a tea party. A young lade that goes to the high school where our nephew teaches came dressed as Elsa.
She was wonderful with the children and a beautiful young lady. I have pictures and will put them up when we get home.

Our trip has been good and we are so grateful. God has truly blessed out family.

Thank the Lord this work week is over! Tomorrow I'm going to try to sleep in, if Cleopatra leaves me alone! She's used to me getting up at 5am and expects to be fed at that time. She's getting fat, and as soon as I can, I'm going to try to get her to stay still on the scale long enough to find out how much she weighs. Of the 3 kittens we rescued, she's the heaviest by far. She's not a year old yet. My daughter has the other two cats.

I'm ready for spring, how about you???

In our county on Tuesday it was so bad some children didn't get home until 8 pm. One bus pulled over and bought the kids he had let on the bus something to eat. No school on Wednesday. We left for our nephew's in Slidell LA. We were planning to leave at 6 am but waited until 8:30 am WV roads were wet on one lane and slush on the other. Winter is here.

Stay safe and warm.

Yesterday we had school but probably shouldn't have. It was bad. We just got a new superintendent, and I don't know how afraid of the snow he is yet...

Schools are closed. We have a lot of snow and ice. Shoveling is the exercise of the day.
We are to leave this morning for Tennessee but delayed the start. Roads are bad.

Stay warm and safe all

Good to hear from you Ann. I will pray for your husband and Sister in law. Yes January is a good time to jet bck on track. That is what I have tried to do these couple weeks. We need to support each other so that we can set our goals as priority. I still get side tracked. Vicky I gained now 5 pounds and I think fasting was a way to drink fluids and clear out the salt and sugar. I know everything has sugar and it setrs me off feeling even mor hungry when I have just eaten. We are getting the house ready for house sitters when we go visit our grand neice and new grand nephew. she will be three. He was born Oct 12 and will be 3 months old. I had help packing the suitcase. Snoopy and Cronos are the two cats we got from our nephew in September. Maybe they think we are going to take them back. No Way!!! We have really gotten attached to these two furry brothers. Sue

So glad to hear from you. We'll keep your husband and sister in law in prayer.

Sue, I have been thinking about a day of fasting myself. I went back to work and actually put on a couple of pounds! Not sure how at all. Bob & I decided to only have something sweet once a week. Last night it was ice cream cones. I eat less in a cone than in a bowl. I've managed to take those two pounds off, but I'd sure like to know how I gained them! I wouldn't do that anymore!!!

Have a wonderful Sunday, all...

Vicky

Ok, I feel much better....I did weigh in on Wednesday. I had gained six pounds since the last time I weighed in in June 2015. Also got measured ....didn't really like what I measured but I do feel good about beginning again. One thing about starting again in January is I really do not desire sweet things during the day. For the month of December I have to admit at work there was so much food available and I went for the sweet stuff.

I have read all of your posts. I am sorry to hear that there were so many funerals for you to attend Vicky but glad to hear they were all saved and what a treat it will be to see them again. Sue, you and my husband both will be ushering on Sunday at different churches to be sure, but serving the same God. Bravo to all of you who have been to the gym. Congratulations and keep on going to you who have lost weight. emoticon

We are on day 9 of our l0 days of prayer at my church. We are doing it on line. The pastor or someone else posts a theme for the day and we pray and we can make comments or pray on line. Either me or my husband or the both of us together have been doing it and it is so satisfying to take part. emoticon

My hubby has to go for the brain scan on the 15th just as a precaution after his fall. His legs are so much better and his ribs are much better as well. Still a bit of improvement there but he no longer winces every time he moves.

Also Terry's sister in Muskogee, Oklahoma had a heart attack....she found out when she went to Emergency because she had a hard time breathing. She was in Emerg for 12 hours then admitted and had surgery yesterday at 1 p.m. She must be doing ok. The texts from her are coming fast and furiously.

My goal for 2016 is to lose the weight I have gained since March of last year, and get back to where I was .......not condemn myself and then inch by inch, pound by pound surpass the 50 lb weight I lost and keep going on inch by inch and pound by pound to a weight where I feel more comfortable.

God Bless you all and have a safe, prosperous 2016.

It seems that there was a lot of illness and loss this last year. I have been busy with my church prayer chain. One after another needing prayers. My prayer is that this 2016 year is filled with happiness and joys for all. We need good health too.

Going to the gym this morning and do all my arm and back exercises. I have felt better doing this now for the last two weeks. I know we are away for a week soon and have a lot of hours of driving so I need all the exercise I can get now. . Nothing is easy.

Prayers for everyone. Welcome WV Diana 58

Hello, all. Hope you are having a successful day. I tried to post a couple of days ago but the flashing Kmart ads all over the page wouldn't let me! Grrr... Anyway, I'm glad to get here today. Back to work again, and it is so hard to get out of bed in the mornings after having a week and a half off, but it was not really a vacation. I had 4 funerals from one Tuesday to the next. Two were extended family members, one on Bob's side, one on mine, and then relatives of two different friends. Got my money's worth already out of my black dress slacks! All were older people and all were saved, so, I'll see them later.

Hope you all are doing well...

Snow and freezing temperature here in West Virginia. Our 2 cats from Louisiana were not interested in going out today. They hit the cold air and turned and ran inside. I braved the icy road and hit the gym for an hour. Then I stopped at the store and that was more work than the gym. It was not the usual store I go to and I walked and walked forever it seemed. They had several really good specials I wanted.

Day 4 in 2016 and sparking away.
