A lady from church is going to buy the ingredients and we are going to make some crockpot dinners so they can be frozen. We are going to look at recipes, and then 3 of us are going to get together and assemble them. Should be fun. Blessings, Rose

Taking comfort in food is my most precious item-my alabaster box. I desire to lay it on His feet and be free.

Welcome back Ann! emoticon I'm glad your new job is going well. I started a new program called Core de force , it's challenging! Today is day 3 and boy am I sore from yesterday's workout and 12 hrs shift at work. But today is my day off and we are supposed to get a snow storm. The kids are home as well emoticon I'll be doing day 3 and some laundry but for the most part cleaning my daughter's room. She has so ooo much stuff emoticon emoticon . My husband works in Newport and may have to stay there because they close the bridge when there's a storm. emoticon But it's for his safety. The other day I made a bourbon chicken recipe on here and it was spicy!! So I'm still looking for some good ones. Any ideas? emoticon ? Have a wonderful day!

Hi Everyone: I haven't posted since Jan. 27th. Looks like a lot has happened since then. Welcome back New Librarian; glad to hear Sue is on vacation I think until the 20th of Feb.

Somebody asked about exercise. I have not been doing much lately but mostly it is walking, sometime dancing to the music at home. I haven't been doing much lately with this stupid wart onthe bottom of my right foot. But yea, I went to the chiropodist yesterday and things are looking good .....it is gone ....I still have a bandage on my foot. I did not get weighed in today..

But feeling like I have had too many carbos -- feeling kind of like the Pillsbury dough boy (girl) in the midriff bulge area....oh well this too will pass.

.new job is so busy .....I didn't mean to be away from my spark friends for so long....but I have been going to bed very early lately. I am on computer all day at work and this is the first time I felt like my eyes would stay open!!!

Enjoyed reading all of your posts since then. Hope to be on more often as I can. God bless one and all.

Ann

emoticon I think walking emoticon or running emoticon is great! When the weather is nice emoticon I run or jog. I used to go to the gym all the time but now I mostly do videos. I just borrowed a new one off my sister called core de force, it's alot of boxing emoticon . I did day 1 today and it was fun, looking forward to day 2. I've been good except for superbowl Sunday with late night snacking. Eating healthy during the day. I tried a bourbon chicken recipes on here and boy it was spicy emoticon ! I think I burnt 300 calories eating it. I know it's a struggle when you have medical issues and can't work out. My back pain is worst when I don't work out so no matter what I have to or I get stuck and stiff. It always bothers me but I'm used to it. My knees bother me time to time but the Holy Spirit gets me through. There are tons of things we can do, I was just telling my sister baby steps will get you there. We usually jump in the deep end and end up drowning instead of starting off slow. So this time I'm taking it easy. One bad habit at a time is getting crossed off the list. Happy Hunting on your exercise adventures. What about recipes? My husband likes Italian food and Chicken, Mexican. Any healthy ideas? Please share. Thank you for sharing your ideas! emoticon God Bless and good night. emoticon

Liz, walking. I put on my ice creepers and walk, or walk up and down the hall in my house. I sometimes do a dance movement class. Do you have any exercise DVD's or could you check one out from the library? In general though my main exercise is walking.

Harley, you might look for an upper body workout. As Jillian would say, with a lower body injury, punches are a great heart rate lifter. Good luck!

Exercise? My heels ate giving me a lot of pain recently. I cannot move as quickly as I used to, therefore, less calories burned. My knees have been great, but now it's my ankles and heels slowing me down. I miss being able to take long strides, well, as long as I can with my short legs, but it felt like they were long strides! LOL...God is my healer!

Going to be beautiful outside the next couple of days...enjoy...

Have a wonderful trip Sue! emoticon Today I hosted the Superbowl emoticon I swear it always something, how is anyone suppose to lose weight like this emoticon lol emoticon Tomorrow I have a meeting at the school for my son. I pray that everything goes well, he needs their support so I'm praying that they keep him in this iep program which is where he gets special attention from teachers and staff members and is allowed more time with testing. School is so stressful now for both parents and children. emoticon His grades are good but he lacks in some areas, reading , comprehension. But tests well go figure. He keeps skating by. I just don't get it. Well I get it he's obviously blessed and his teachers don't see it emoticon . Back to eating healthy again and exercising. emoticon Question on the floor?? What's everyone doing as far as exercising? How are you getting your exercise in? emoticon emoticon emoticon I'm curious. God Bless Good Night and have a beautiful day tomorrow.

Just found out that I get to dog sit my grand puppy, Gear, next weekend. He's a wonderful, loving, 6 year old miniature dachshund, who hates people, except for his family and Bob & I. Don't know what I'm going to do about Hopi, because she doesn't like him at all, and he's not real fond of her either. Cleo will just disappear, as usual, but Gear actually likes cats, but Cleo doesn't know that. Gonna be exciting for a few days...

I've managed to drop a couple of pounds, in spite of myself. Trying to not snack between meals and after supper. Liz, keep up the good(and hard) work!

Trying to stay warm and dry today. I think it's gonna get colder for a couple of days...

Have a wonderful day, all...

Today all of my house is clean and ready for the house sitter. I really pushed this job for the last several days. I was tired but my friend called and we met for lunch yesterday. That was great!!
Now finish loading the suitcases and weigh them.

No more snow but it is cold and the roads a re wet. I have the most beautiful birds at the feeder. I put out extra food each day. The house sitter will do that too. I have a mix of sunflower seeds and a fruit mix of seeds.

Time is going so fast.
Prayers for all
Sue

We have to start somewhere. This is day 3 of me not snacking emoticon after dinner, I'm trying to eat dinner and close emoticon the kitchen. I'm pretty sure that's where I gained all this extra weight. emoticon Have a wonderful day tomorrow emoticon emoticon

No School here and also no school in surrounding counties.
Vicky I hope you are home today too.
Ann I hope you and the Grands had a great day.
Welcome back Newlibrarian
Lia prayers for you and family.

Monday again and now I have count down to trip days. Four days to finish getting everything packed. Then weigh the suitcase. We are allowed 50 pounds each. We have one day of travel to California, 14 days on the ship, and one dy trip back from Ft.Lauderdale. I know we have enough clothes. Dave is in charge of the medicine. I have all the other little things to think about. I have everything ready for our house/animal sitter.

So starting next week I will not be on line as we will be at sea. I may get on line if it isn't too hard at the internet cafe.

Prayers will continue when I am gone for all of you my special friends. I will have my devotional book and prayer lists with me. Also AI will have time to sit and read.

OOOO sounds like a cruise. I hope you have fun and good weather.
I have been away from Spark in general for a while and this team in particular longer then that but I am trying to get my act together and get in shape again.
I am not sure that blob is a shape.
We came back from a cruise the 18th and have been fighting colds ever since.
I got myself a fitbit to challenge and motivate me but I am having a hard time getting very active with this cold. It seems to be petering out though so hopefully this will be a good week for getting my steps and exercise in.
Food well I am working on it.

I am not skilled to understand what GOD has willed what GOD has planned I only know at his right hand stands one who is my SAVIOR

Actually, Sue, we have the day off today but I'm not sure why. Good thing though because I'm not feeling my best. Head cold again...

I was just filling out my taxes and found there's a form I haven't gotten yet. Now I sit and wait...

Bob is up cleaning at the church and he left me sleep in. The cat decided I needed to get up. She doesn't like any closed doors in the house. I guess it all belongs to her...

It's a nice day for staying in and puttering around the house...later I'll go see Mom&Dad.

Hope you all enjoy your day...

Glad to hear from all of you. Prayers for all and especially healing your foot, Ann.

The dark days get me down and then I start to look for snacks. I feel cold and think I need fuel. Not good. . I know that this trip is going to be a lot of food choices. When i get back I am planning of working hard. I need to put up my weekly chart again. My goal for weighing in at my yearly check up will be facing me as we get back.

Almost Friday again. Prayers for all.

Wow Sue: I just wish I could see some blue sky here. Been foggy, rainy and dark. Oh well we will really appreciate it when we get that yellow ball in the sky. I think it is called the sun. ha ha ha

well weighed in and I gained two pounds. I am sure it is because of the procedure on the bottom of my foot -- blistered and hurting so less walking. Measurements did not increase so maybe next week.....

Prayers for one and all.

Well, it turned out to be a really nice sunny day here. Just got home from work and I've been on the phone ever since! Don't know yet what I'm gonna have for lunch, but I'm trying to be careful.

Sue, I'm ready to see some daffodils. The geese keep flying over, like they can't make up their minds whether it's winter or not...

Hang tough, y'all. You're still in my prayers...

Almost felt like summer. I got the area around the bird feeders cleaned up and branches picked up. However, it looks like a week of rain coming.

I am still coughing and sneezing but not quite so bad. I hope I can get rid of this stuff.

I am late getting on line so more tomorrow. Blessings to you today..

Gorgeous day here today! Bob bought a new phone and we went up to the cottage to see if we could get out with it...and we could! His last phone wouldn't get out from there because it was outdated. Now when he's up there without me, I can at least call him. It was so nice up there I hated to come home. The lane is awfully muddy and rutted back in there but we made it back out again!

We stopped at the Salvation Army store on the way home and I found Bob 2 pair of jeans, and a new pair of work pants for me. I have such an awful time finding pants & jeans to fit me right, but these were perfect. They're McDonald's work pants! They even have the golden arches on the inside tag! Wonder where I could get a couple more pair? And, NO, I'm not going to work at McDonald's...

Hope you all are enjoying your Saturday...

Rose, Prayers sent for both your sister and Connie. Prayer for all of you to stay well and strong . Sunshine here today so I am.happy. Now I need to get back to work.

Today may include outside work as the high wind has left branches down. It is hard to keep up outside and inside work.


Time goes too fast or I am just getting slower.

Hello to all,
It is raining again and dark here today. Yesterday we did get a few hours of sunshine. IA don't like the dark days. Today is inside work on washing etc. clothes. AI also want to have time to work ont he new song we have for the music lesson this week.

Where do the hours go. I think I am finally over most of this cold. That slowed me down more.

Stay healthy and Prayers going to our Father for all of you.

Hello, all! Wow, the third week of January is almost over! My Christmas decorations are still sitting at the bottom of the stairs! Usually when I am heading upstairs, I already have something to carry up, like laundry. Oh, well, it will get there eventually!

I had lost all the weight I gained over Christmas vacation, but regained 2 pounds, and took it off, and regained the same 2 again...like a seesaw! I'm still carrying it right now...hmmm...

Well, my kitchen is calling to be straightened up, so I'll be back later...

Vicky My hands are cold every so often. I have the sinus congestion and when I start to get the cold feeling I just have to sit and warm up. I know it is part of this congestion. I have stayed in except for a couple of needed trips. Today was music so I went.

Vicky, you are very nice to wait for the man to get the money. I suppose it was hard to do over the holiday season when present need to be purchased.

Ann - Awesome... Woo!!! HOoo1 Way to go. You are doing great. My yearly check up is February. I really hope to beat last years weigh in.

However.... Dave and I will be married 25 years in June. We are going on a cruise in February. We fly to California and cruise through the Panama Canal to Miami. I am going to weigh my self before we leave and nope to be at that when we get back. We realize that at our age waiting any longer may mean we won't be able to go because of a health problem. We look at our friends and as you approach 80 it doesn't look like a good time to plan a trip. We will probably only to short trips in the US from then on.

My advice to all of the rest of us in this group. Do it now!!! The golden age has many surprises that hinder you from travel.

Prayers for everyone.
Sue

You know what they say, Vicky....cold hands, warm heart.....praying for a quick resolution to the sale of your trike. Sue: Enjoy the few spare moments you have now......take in the flowers....woops...wrong season.....check that....ok, take time to smell the coffee then!

My plan worked! I lost three pounds - measurements stayed the same as last weigh in which was second week in December. My plan was NOT to gain over the holidays. So I told myself no chocolate, no ooey gooey bars, no fudge. I did allow myself fruit nappys full of ice cream at night but no toppings. Also some boring cookies too. I guess I know myself ...this is the first holiday season that I did not gain but lost. emoticon

My hands are freezing! Sometimes wet days make me colder than cold days. Got caught in a downpour hauling food down to the other school this morning and was cold the rest of the day.
Betsy was off today, so I had double the work to clean up. She has a bad sinus headache.

Still waiting on the man who is wanting to buy my trike. If he doesn't follow thru pretty soon, I'm going to advertise it again. He calls every couple of weeks to let me know he still wants it, just waiting on the financing. If this were summer, I wouldn't wait on him. It's been 2 months of, "I'm getting it, for sure," but I ain't seen no cash yet...and I don't want a down payment, I want it all at once.

So, there ya go...two new prayer requests...thanks, all...

Back on track again. Where do the days go???

We have dark days and rain. I really would like to have some sunshine. I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy. I have what ever is going around now . I am better today.

This is not a busy week. It seems like I am missing something as I don't have to hurry and try to do 2 things at once. .

My brother's daughter and partner came Saturday and left on Sunday. They were a delight. We had such a nice visit and my daughter came down too. We all had diner. My daughter's husband has a serious break out from something at work and didn't come. We girls were in the kitchen and everyone was chattering away. My niece , Wendy, was an only child. Her mother died and my brother remarried. His second wife had 5 children. Wendy has felt bit left out as they are a solid unit. In this last year things have worked better. I was glad to hear that.

Each family has burdens that we must handle.

I am setting up my house again after the company and doing the wash etc. Just another busy Monday.
Prayers for all.

I agree with you Sue. I so much enjoy our friends on this site. A shoulder to lean on, someone to listen to exciting news. Thanks for asking about my husband.

Terry's leg wounds are still being treated at the ParaMed flex clinic, but not for long, they are slowly healing. He fell again yesterday. He walked just down to the mail area around the corner and he made it back too. When he went to lift his foot up the one step to our home, he just wasn't able to lift it up that high. A couple of more scrapes to add to his repertoire. He said thinking back, he felt on the way back that his muscles in his legs were weak. He will start up again with the exercises the physiotherapist gave him. I am proud of him that he has such courage with the neuropathy in his arms and legs. He simply does not quit. Yes, sometimes he gets frustrated and crabby, but he keeps on keeping on. Wow that sounds like a 1960's saying but hey I was there. Thank God for his faith that keeps him.

Be blessed everyone today in whatever you are doing.

Ann

We have had company today and on to tomorrow. I am behind.

Prayers for you in the loss of Lou. I am so glad to hear that Bob got to sit with him. It means so much when you have that small bit of time.

Ann prayers for your husband and you too. You are all my special friends. I know I have been blessed with your support. People step into our lives for a reason. We have prayers and support in our group.
Blessing to all

Vicky:

I read your text that your brother in law, Lou went home to Jesus. My condolences--- what a sense of relief we have when someone in our family has given their heart to the Lord. We will still miss that person, but what a release to know you will see them again. I am so glad Bob was better enough to meet with Lou before he passed.

It reminds me of when my sister Karen was in the hospital back in 2007. I had not been able to see her for about 8 days or so because I had such a chest cold. She was on oxygen. Finally, I was able to go and see her. We had a wonderful time together talking and watching t.v., and I remember we had a big conversation about a certain actress on a tv show, her name was Poppy. Karen did not think she was a good actress and I said she was. The other thing was I reported on some financial things I had done for her. I even stayed past 8 p.m. visitor hours deadline. Maybe I was there until 10 p.m. She was scheduled to go to another hospital once she was weaned off the oxygen, as a recovery measure.

Unexpectedly she passed the next day and when I got a call at work about it, I exclaimed, "Oh I am so glad that I got to see her yesterday for such a long visit!" ...I bet Bob feels the same way.

Blessings toward you and your family at this time....but just think of all the people we will meet again in Heaven, what a blast that will be.....

Ann

Lou went to be with Jesus this morning. Bob got to see and talk with him last night, and made sure he was ready to go. We're at peace knowing he's in Heaven now with his parents and we'll see him again. Thanks, everyone...

This will be a quick one. Have to return to work in 4 minutes. Add my prayers for Lou and Sudie. Asking for prayers for my hubby Terry who still has wounds on his leg getting treatment several times a week from RNs at the Flex Clinic.

P.S. For myself, left eye, left knee, and right foot - had a bit of a procedure on bottom of foot. However, I am like the old Timex watch commercial. I get a "licking" and keep on ticking.

I know the blood of Jesus is still as powerful as it ever was for all of these prayer requests.

Prayers continue for Lou and Sudie.

It is like a spring day here. NO snow and warm. I hope to get some branches cleared out today below the Willow Tree. We have had high winds all night. Hard to sleep.I know this weather won't last.

Still with the head cold and stuffiness. Slowing down today.

We'll continue to pray for Sudie. Please continue to remember Lou. So far, so good. Hospice was NOT called in, like they thought would be. The doctor told Lou he would do everything he could for him, as long as he would do what he was told. Bob is still too sick to go in and see him in ICU.

Today is a fairly decent day here. It was very icy this morning though...

Take care, all...

Sudie is still on my list. Prayers they find out what is going on.

Company coming this weekend. Christmas is packed away and now clean and set up for this next weekend. It is warmer today like in the 40's not 11 degrees as we have just had.

I have a cold now and I think it is from people around as this is making it's rounds in church.

Keep safe and prayers for you to stay healthy thins year.

Hello everyone! Please pray for my sister as she is now having falling spells and shaking quite a bit. Her doctor asked her if their was any history of Parkinson's in the family. There is not, she sees the neurologist on the 31st. In case her name has slipped your mind, it is Sudie. Thank you. Blessings.

Prayers are continuing.

It is still icy so I didn't drive to the gym. Dave is now working on his AARP tax volunteer test. We are home and staying warm. I am still trying to clean things. My brother's daughter and partner are coming this weekend. I need to get ready.

It is Monday again and so we need a positive plan to make this week a success. I decided no new year's resolution but a plan per week.
A year is too long.

Vicky prayers for Lou. I understand. Actually prayers for each of you that are on this thread. Everyone is dealing with something.

Prayers you stay healthy. The colds and the stomach flu are going around here.

Today is cold and icy here. We have 11 degrees again. It will get better later in the week.

We had a good number come to church today. OUr roads were icy.

I am praying for you to get over the illnesses and that God will send you a blessing. I may struggle walking at times but I am in good health.

Please remember my brother in law, Lou, in prayer. A couple of weeks ago he had a heart attack and they put in 2 stents, kept him a couple of days and sent him home. Yesterday, he was readmitted for pneumonia. They say he won't recover from this and hospice has been called in. They don't know our God. Bob cannot go see him because he is sick and won't be allowed in ICU. Lou has no one but Bob & his brother, Larry. He has 5 children, but they don't want anything to do with him,(long story.) He walked with the Lord at one point in his life and we want to make sure he's still on speaking terms with Him. Thank you for praying...

We have been struck yesterday, today and possibly tomorrow with 14 inches of snow. It's pretty bad out. I'm sick with a head cold and congestion. Husband's been working and will again tomorrow. I need a break, and it can't come soon enough. Be safe everyone.

Awww, Sue, praying for your speedy recovery. I've been dealing with foot pain this week, too. It's very frustrating to not be able to get where you're going quickly enough. I'm always in a hurry...

Another week not being able to visit my parents! Between the weather and these colds, we've been staying close to home.

Stay warm, all...

Hi! all!
We have 11 degrees today. It is really ice not so much snow. I am not going out today. Yesterday we had to go out in the afternoon when I went to the foot doctor. My left ankle was hurting and the tendon going up the leg. It was bad over the holiday. I made the appointment the Tuesday after Christmas. They x-rayed the ankle. My husband was with me. He is a retired radiologist. The doctor and my husband looked at the x-ray. The doctor thought I might have a crack in the ankle bone. Dave said no that was a (something technical) they agreed and I have a brace on as they think it was a twist. I don't remember doing anything to twist but I will take that and not a crack. I have a brace on it.

Stay warm and safe.
Sue

Hello everyone. We have winter today. about 4 to 6 inches. No school in our area. I thought of you Vicky. I wondered if you got the snow up north of us.

Dave is plowing out the driveway with our little tractor. I have an appointment with the foot doctor this afternoon. I have ingrown toe nail problem.

Everyone stay safe and warm. Prayers for all.

Prayers of healing for my friends coming your way in Jesus Name. I myself feel like I have the sniffles today, hoping it goes away or shall I say praying it goes away. My husband's been sick, he has asthma so it's tougher on him. The kids have been ok thank you Jesus. My dad saw his primary Dr today, also it's his cardiologist. Ekg came back good, he says the meds seem to be working and keeping everything a float. He thinks he might've had a mini heart attack or a clogged artery but the meds have corrected it for now. We've just got to be careful and take it easy. emoticon I'm so grateful to have him here with us and I think he knows God is all over this. He's listening and following the rules. Alleluia!! Finally!! He's usually so stubborn, I mean look what it took to get him here. emoticon Anyways I finished my 3 day refresh and I'm continuing my healthy diet. I'm trying to get up in the morning and workout but it's difficult with working and stressful but I need to do it! God grant me the strength to get it done. God bless everyone emoticon

Wow, what a change in the weather! Right now it's 20, but the wind is relentless and it feels like it's cutting right thru you! I'm so glad to be home...

Today is much better for me. My head is clearer, not just the congestion, but I feel like I'm thinking much more clearly than in the last week. Nausea is much less and I actually ate solid food for lunch, not just a protein shake and mashed strawberries. I had an extremely small salad, a cheese stick and 4 small meatballs. THEN, I got a little uncomfortable, but that went away. I've lost 8 pounds since the day after Christmas. I even went to the grocery store and picked up a couple things to make supper, and I didn't even buy anything I shouldn't have. Please, God, let's continue this...

Please stay warm, all...

Ann prayers for a good appointment at the eye Doctor and also that your headache goes away.
That movie sounds really good. I like movies that you can sit and enjoy and not sit at the edge of your seat trying to figure out what they are doing. Some movies are more work that entertainment.

Vicky I guess you are heading back to work too. Prayers for you to be well. Prayers for your husband too. The bugs are traveling around and hit the stomach. Not good!!

Today was a trip to the dentist. My teeth are all there and they seem to be holding up pretty well. The rest of my body keeps trying to take a vacation on me when I need it to work. I have an appoint ment tiwh the foot doctor on Friday. My ankle and my big toes are bothering me.

Bright sunshine today. The wind is really cold and blowing everything over or around.
Prayers for all and Blessings to you as we start 2017. Make each day count.
Sue
Thank you Lord for another day.

Good afternoon, all. It's rainy and dreary here today, but I don't mind. I just want to take a nap...

Ann, you remind me of me since you're not the only one who works when we'd rather be home in bed. The last 2 days have been miserable for me, but it's a good thing I showed up because we had 2 call-offs. They had to bring my daughter down from the middle school to help out, and she got to be my cashier today. That was nice!

Bob is feeling pretty nasty(and grumpy) this week. He has to go back to work tomorrow, and he works a longer day than I do. He's got the sore throat, but I don't. I have the nausea. He doesn't. We've both got the sinus and the chest congestion, him way worse than me. Tomorrow we will both be better, in Jesus' name...

Take it easy, all...

Vicky

Hello everyone - Happy new year....first day back at work and I have a migraine right over my left eye....I think it is because I put a crick in my neck again. Anyway I am here, "Super Employee" I don't really have much of a headache, but if you could pray that my vision would improve, that would be great!. Rose - good to hear from you. I am going to the Optometrist right after work. I had a previously booked eye appt., so I hope the migraine does not interfere with all those bright lights.

Sue: I am glad you had a great mom and daughter day - you deserve it. I think it was Liz who said she went to see "Sing" the movie. Well my granddaughter and I both went to it yesterday and we agree. Some very talented singers there - by the last names of Saunders and Hudson. Wow!! My grandson, papa and mom went to see the new Star Wars movie at the same time. They enjoyed it but not my cuppa tea.

We went to church on Sunday too. Our pastor was quoting from a minister who is 79 but has with his son a church I believe in the states. When asked what he would do differently he said two things. I would dream more and I would risk more. So that was the theme of our Pastor's message. He was talking about how God gave the promised land to His people but they had to go out and possess it. So, I guess we need to get out of our comfort zone and do something to reach out to others was my end feeling. We are having 10 days of prayer started on Jan. 1st. I usually join in because it is very helpful to get the new year off to a great start.

Ann

Be as kind to yourself as you would be to a friend. Give out grace to others and you will receive grace back.

Starting this week cleaning and getting things set up for this month. These last 2 days went too fast. My daughter called me and we went looking for a few things yesterday that she wanted. We went to Hobby Lobby first and spent a good bit of time. Then we looked at the clock and decided to go for lunch. after lunch it was about 3 more places. We went to the Pet Co to get my dog Teddy a coat for walking in the cold. He is old and really needs some cover. It was then 2 pm so I called home to let Dave know we were still heading one more place. We started driving there and Carol said I was going to make a meatloaf tonight but I think we should stop at Pizza Al's and buy Calzones and not cook. Well, that sounded like a good idea. We had the best Mother Daughter day . She is so busy that we don't really have many times to just talk.

Today I get my hair done. It is too long. I will look better tonight.

Prayers for everyone.
Sue

I have to see what these Dr's are going to say about his health. emoticon Took my tree down and all my decorations today emoticon it's actually kind of sad and my house looks very plain now. emoticon Well I guess I'll have to spruce things up a bit, I've been thinking about new curtains and pillows, maybe a rug in the living room. Change things up a bit, it's been a while. Our bedrooms could use a bit touching up too. One thing at a time I guess. emoticon Busy weekend up ahead, b-day party Saturday emoticon for one of the kids friends from school. Then on Sunday we have a baby shower emoticon . Other than that I'll be working and running around as usual. Can't wait to see if I'll lose any weight this week. Usually I wait til Saturday to weigh myself cuz it takes a few days for my body to register ANY loss from this refresh. emoticon Hope everyone has a wonderfully blessed week emoticon

emoticon Happy New Year! emoticon My dad is getting there, it's tough keeping up. I work full time and have my family but I try to keep in touch with him as well. I'm grateful emoticon for my siblings and all there help. We spent new years at my brothers last night but I had to leave early cuz my son wasn't feeling well emoticon . Today we started on the right foot by going to church emoticon We had a guest speaker Apostle Tony. He read from Jonah and today's message was about going out into the world and ministering to the lost because there are so many lost souls out there that just need a word to set them on the right path. Live like your the light so that people will want that too. Then I started my 3 day refresh, no sugars, no carbs just protein shakes, vegetables, fruits and a fiber drink emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon and lots of water emoticon I've put on alot of weight out of depression and stressful situations and holiday season. emoticon so it's time to work it off emoticon emoticon 2017 here we come!! God Bless! P.S. We saw Sing in the theatre yesterday and loved it, good movie. Don't like meatloaf much but I could've cooked it wrong, lol Thank you for all your prayers emoticon

Hello to all,
Rose good to hear from you. Happy New Year!!
Today we have 365 days ahead of us to plan to become the best we can be. The past we cannot change and the future is uncertain sooooo live each minute of each day. Remember to pray. Our minister today in the sermon said If you are too busy to pray then you are way too busy. You are all on my prayer list.

Our First reading at church today was from Number Chapter 6 verses 22-27 The Lord was telling Moses to speak to Aaron and his sons. The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you: the lord lift up countenance upon you, and give you peace.
May 2017 bring you blessings and good health.
Sue

Ann good to hear from you Wonderful that you are having a good visit with family. Gald also that your Dad didn't have to go to the ER.

Vicky we have meatloaf a lot. When I mix one up I make an extra couple for the freezer. It is a meal when we are having a busy day and I have no more steam to keep me going.

Liz prayers for you and your Dad. The holidays are stressful. I feel the pressure and it makes me feel bad. We just need some time to regroup.

Our company left this am about 10. The 2 dogs were okay but they really smelled like dogs so I need to scrub my living room rug. We have always had animals but I try hard not to have my house smelly. Dave took down the tree and I have most of the other things taken down and packed. There are still some to decide about on the dining room table. I am only keeping the items I really want. The rest is boxing up for Goodwill next year. in the fall.

Tomorrow we start a new year of 365 days to plan for good health and happy times.
Happy New Year's Eve.
Sue

Liz I am so glad your dad is recovering and is home. Sue: enjoy your time slowing down and taking it easy. Vicky - you can always have meat loaf whenever you want now. It still sounds good to me. Hope everyone had a great Christmas and are looking forward to 2017.

We went to see my Dad and my sister and her daughter and son and son in law on Christmas and spent a lot of time with the family but it was so nice as we spent two nights in a hotel. We also saw my sister in law for a short visit. My dad hurt his back on Dec. 26th in the afternoon and at first we thought he would have to go to the hospital but ibuprofen and a535 rub helped him out and on Dec. 28th he was back up and down the stairs again.

Driving was perfect on the way down it could not have been better. Dry roads, sunshine and hardly any cars on the road. On the way back home the roads were a bit busier and it was a bit windy....but otherwise smooth sailing. It has snowed since then but not too bad.

I don't go back to work until January 3rd, as I took off three vacation days and am glad about that.

Had a good talk with my niece and how she remembers when they were little about acting out the nativity story with housecoats and scarves on their heads. Just in case you wonder if kids remember. This one did. She is a grown woman pregnant with her first child. We also talked quietly about many years ago, when her dad was close to death in the hospital. He could not talk but right in front of his kids he gave his heart to the Lord, with a tear running down his face. It was a nice quiet and non tearful remembrance for her and I.

Yesterday, we had lunch with our grands and our daughter in law and played a game called, spoons. It was exciting and fun. Today I want to clean up around here, if I can keep my hubby from wanting to go out and about. He is usually without the car and he usually can find a reason to go out.

I plan to take down our Christmas tree on New Years Day since we put it up mid December. It is so pretty. My grandaughter and I will be going to see the movie "Sing" on Jan. 2nd and my hubby, grandson and daughter in law will be going at the same time to see the new Star Wars movie. We had to reserve seats and it was busy until then.

Blessings and prayers to each and every one of you, including all the team that we don't hear from too often. You and we are all part of the group, so bless you all big time!

Ann

Be as kind to yourself as you would be to a friend. Give out grace to others and you will receive grace back.

emoticon Vicky! I'm glad my dad's home but we have a long road ahead of us. One day at a time emoticon . My decorations will stay up until the new year then I'll take them down and start cleaning and organizing again. I want to make some changes around the house emoticon I'm getting ready to start a weight loss program for January. My clothes are tight and I'm feeling yucky emoticon kids are having fun being home, unfortunately we have to work but I may take them out on new years day. Are the theaters open that day? It's a thought. Have a wonderfully blessed day tomorrow! emoticon

Liz I am glad your Dad is better.

Vicky Great news!!! Good for you.

Yesterday about 6 pm our friends from Tennessee arrived. They are here for the rest of the week. It is really busy. they have 2 dogs and they required a lot of attention. One has a hip problem and the other is blind and diabetic. The dogs are both are on meds. Well, my cats seem to not bother about them and my dog is okay so we are making the best of it. They are visiting other friends now. They use to live here and moved to Florida to retire. They didn't like it so they bought a house in Tennessee.

We are praying for a good 2017 and good health.
Sue

Well, I'm down 3 pounds. Yippee! Now, to continue the downward trend...

I still have my Christmas tree to take down. By now, it's usually down but since it's just the small one this year, I'm dragging my feet. Everything else is put away.

Not much else going on here. Hope you all are doing well...

Vicky

Crashed this morning. Then my daughter called and took me to the mall for a couple hours with her to look around. I am on slow today.

I lost 4 pounds in the last four weeks. That is from all the things i had to get done. Now if I can just stay away from sweets through New Year's I think I will be okay.

Blessings to all as it is Monday again and ready to start again.

Vicky - Glad you are getting the baking done. We usher tonight at church the 6 pm service.
Ann Prayers that you hear from your son. Enjoy the grands. and family. The new job may be interesting. I hope you like it.
Liz prayers for your dad and the family.
We have a granddaughter that is 27 and we haven't heard from her for a long time. She is on Facebook so I can see some of the things she posts. We have no idea what her address is at this time. My daughter married her father and they have tried to keep in touch. Her mother left our area and moved with her to Florida when she was 4 years old. I think every family has some burden for prayers. She was 10 when my daughter married her Dad. My daughter tried to include her and get them to visit but no luck.

Actually prayers for all of you to be blessed this Christmas. We have all had stress things in this last year. I appreciate all of you and your support.

I think it is time to finish the Angel Pie. That is one tradition my daughter had me start years ago. She always wanted one all to herself. Not so much anymore. emoticon

Dave is out running errands so I have a minute or two to be online.
Merry Christmas and Blessings to you and your families.
Sue.

Oh, Ann, I love that your grands caught on! And how God is continuing to bless you through your job. And we can forget about the meatloaf. Mom is all about turkey and stuffing...lots of stuffing...

It's been a busy morning so far. Washer going, dishwasher going, cookies in the oven, and kitchen cleaned up after the cookie mess. Bob is still in bed but Cleopatra is doing her best to get him up. She's meowing at the bedroom door. She doesn't like doors closed...silly cat. Hopi has been following me all morning hoping I'd drop something for her to eat. Now that I'm done, she went back to bed...lazy dog...

I kinda like having a more relaxed Christmas, but I sure do miss the reasons for the rushing in years past. My inlaws have been gone for more than 10 years now and I would love just one more Christmas morning with them, drinking coffee and watching Holly open her presents. This is the hardest time of the year for me, and so many others. My friend Bonnie lost her dad at the end of November. My heart breaks for her...but he is having Christmas with Jesus, and someday we will too!

Have a lovely weekend, all...

Vicky

Vicky: Meat Loaf for Christmas ....mmmmm that sounds good to me..... emoticon

Liz prayers for your dad......peace for yourself. love coming your way.....God knows. emoticon ...I have not seen my son for a year...had a card for Mother's Day.....he does not have a phone .....he has a facebook page...but I don't see that he goes there to see our greetings.....we got him a birthday and a Christmas present left at my daughter-in-laws, in case he contacts them....his birthday was Nov. 22nd and present still there....sigh!!!! My biggest prayer this Christmas is that he contacts his kids during the holiday season. emoticon

Sue: It is good to hear the news of the recovery to health of a friend you have been praying for.....we have a great God who lets us take part when we pray for others. Oh by the way Sue, this is Saturday, December 24th ....I read that you were getting mixed up on the days this week....ha ha ha that is ok if it made you ahead of the game, eh? emoticon

Some good news - emoticon There has been a reorganization going on where I work with lots of changes starting June of this year....found out that the section I work in will be closing at end of March 2017 but they have another job for me....starting mid to end of January. I will know more later. I did not seek it, nor interview for it....I had decided to keep working until after my husband turns 65 which will be mid July so I could keep getting benefits for him....I may work until November now...no decision made yet...I think this job should be fine...working again with a Christian co-worker ....she will be the teacher now, as I was the teacher for her when she worked with me before.

emoticon Great thoughts and blessings go out to every one on this Spark Team! I so enjoy my sparkfriends it is like having pen pals. just more tekky! emoticon

We are having Christmas today at my daughter in laws and going to her church service tonight. Oh and Vicky, we are kind of traditional turkey and all we are taking turkey, stuffing, cranberries today and our daughter in law is doing the sides and she is from Romanian heritage and she will probably do two desserts. (I have been successful in my plan...I had zero fudge, chocolate, ooey gooey bars and have allowed myself a few cookies and I still lost l/2 pound when I weighed in at work. No changes in the measurements either up or down)

Tomorrow we go to see my family which is about one hour away. We bring buns and cranberries to that emoticon

One new note about my grands and the nativity seen they have been taking part in moving around. I had another download from Holy Spirit....we have an Avon Christmas figurine that I bought a couple of years ago, that has a boy and girl dressed in winter attire and it reminded me of my grandkids.....so when I was unwrapping it I was impressed to include it with the nativity scene. I don't know if you guys hear about the kids show that has the Imagination Station in it, or not on the radio (I think it is through Focus on the Family... the imagination station had kids visiting through their imagination to the first Christmas). Anyway I put this figurine in with the nativity to see if they noticed and Abby said, yeah that is us visiting to see what is going on in the first Christmas! She caught right on and I pray that they will always remember what a precious gift of Jesus we have.

Have a great Christmas celebrating Jesus birth with friends and family and be blessed in 2017!

Sue, I would much rather be ready too early! Tomorrow I will be baking for the Christmas Eve service at the church, and at the last minute, we decided to go to my parents for Christmas Day, after the morning service! Of course, when I asked my mom what I could bring she says, "Nothing...it's not going to be as overdone as Thanksgiving so don't bring anything..." Wow...I will anyway...

Have a great evening...

Vicky
