So glad you are feeling better :)) Sometimes we just have to pull ourselves up because noone else can do it for us. emoticon

Hello everyone - the new, the fresh and the ones that are hanging in there like myself. P.S. I read all of your posts and I say, Glad you are feeling better Dee, Sue, I am amazed at your pics, and how hard you work. I am sure after the hour of massage you must be feeling better too. Vicky congratulations on getting those chaps - two sizes smaller. It would be nice if you could find an owner for your old ones. What an encouragement. Liz: I like doing the same things as you, nature trail, ice cream etc. I used to have many rides on the back of motorcycles from Harleys to Hondas back in the day. Most every boyfriend was a biker. Not my Terry though!

In Canada we had the Victoria Day Weekend after Queen Victoria of England. It was a long weekend and then I took an extra day off which was yesterday. So back to work for Wed., Thurs., and Friday only.

The majority of the time was with the grands and also gardening at our small front garden and our small side garden. Rose bush from nana's day was planted along with some small annuals that are white and some that are blue. Sorry cannot remember name; At front we have been working on trimming the bush and then we got rid of many weeds, and between both gardens put in about 10 bags of top soil. Also planted some geraniums at the front. I am a bit stiff Sue, but we did it in stages. We still have two different tomato plants to plant and a sweet pepper.

Also bought two table lamps and a floor lamp (Matching) from Bibles For Missions store. They are nice and we only spent $12 for each table lamp and #10 for the floor lamp. We will need to get new lamp shades but what a deal we got. The table lamps have two areas to turn on lights so reading and to provide bright light.

Good morning team, I love reading all your busy posts. Feeling much better and so glad to tell you that the depression has lifted, thanks be to God. I'm still resting up a lot but spend that time with my bible. Life feels so good and God has blessed me so much. I have regained a couple of pounds but night time eating has to be controlled again. Thanks for being there for me when I needed encouragement the most. Blessings, Dee. Xx

My God loves me, he shelters me from harm.

I've been trying to be good since we got back from Erie. I think I'll be okay when weigh in comes tomorrow. I need to check in with Gail and see how she's doing.

Beautiful day here, in the 60's and not so humid now, but this morning you could get wet just walking to your car. So much humidity!

Had the lead test done on the house, then one man came to check out our windows, so he could put a bid in with the people who are working with us to get this done. Two more bids to go...

Hope you all are enjoying the day...

All my work outside make my hip really painful. I had to rest it for a couple days and then it didn't get much better. I went to the message therapist this morning and she said it was the muscle in that hip. She worked on it this morning for almost an hour. She said there was a bruise in the muscle and it was hot. I am better now and going to play with the group at a nursing home and then we are eating out together. Restful day ahead. Don't have to cook dinner either. emoticon

Hope all of you had a good weekend. We had more rain and it looks like rain today.

Rain and more rain here. It did cool everything down. I have stayed so good this last month and hope to keep to the plan for the next couple weeks. We are going to visit our nephew and family. Their little one is going to be in a dance recital When we talked on the phone she asked if we could come and we said yes. Then she said "You come now!!" They live outside of New Orleans in Slidell LA. I can't wait to see her. She is one busy little person.

II will weigh in tomorrow and hope that it is good.
Blessings to all of you today.

So pretty, Sue!

Bob and I just got back from a weekend in Erie. We made a wrong turn to go back to the hotel, and lo and behold, we were at the zoo! So we stayed and looked around. Got a good deal of walking in! Now I know an easy way to get there! Don't think the weekend did my diet any good, tho. I'll find out Wednesday when I weigh in with Gail...

My husband bought me a new pair of chaps for our anniversary. Yippee! Two whole sizes down! I hope I can find someone to give the old ones to. They are so expensive to buy...

Hot flashes are bad today. Must have eaten the wrong thing...

Adding Gail to the prayer list. With the support of the group we pray she will be comfortable and successful. Friends and Family are helpful support. When they are not there it is really hard to go it alone.

New here!!! My gardens are done. I do need to add some plants in a few places. But the weeding out of the worst part got finished yesterday.


I don't know if the picture came through. Sue

Hello, all! Hope you're having good day! I'm right on track today, and with good reason. My cousin, Gail, has decided to join me in this effort to lose weight. She used to be the skinny friend, and with a lot of stress in her life, she put on about 125 pounds. She is diabetic and also has arthritis and a pacemaker, so please add her name to your prayer list. She's tried so hard, so many times to lose weight and has become discouraged. The enemy has tried to convince her that she cannot succeed. So, we weighed in on Tuesday, and will begin regular weigh ins every Wednesday, right before she goes with me to our weightloss Bible study. She's really excited to be getting back to a Bible study again, more than losing weight! God makes all the difference!

Holly and the grands are coming by later, so I'd better get moving around here. Catch you later!

Happy Birthday and wishing you many more.

We have company still until tomorrow. I have really been working to get the house kept in order. It was cool yesterday and they even said we might have frost last night. It didn't happen so all my plants are okay.

Both dogs had their bath an were groomed yesterday. They are so cute.

Another busy day.
Prayers out for all of you to be blessed today.

Good evening, all. I have a confession to make. Today is my birthday, and my husband and I went out for lunch. I was good on low-carb--had fajitas, one small tortilla, hardly any rice, some guacamole. Then the waitress asked if I wanted a sopapilla (for those who don't know what that is, you've really missed something wonderful). I declined. Then DH tells the waitress it's my birthday, and she says "I'll be right back." She comes back in a little bit, asks my name, then disappears again. Then she and a couple of other folks come back singing Happy Birthday, and she's bringing a huge tortilla bowl full of fried ice cream. I've never had that before, and it was delicious. I did leave some, and that's a first for me. But the bowl would probably have served four people. DH and I did our best to finish the gift, thanked the nice people, and I went back to work. I did mow the lawn for a half hour after I got home to try and make up for my indiscretion. I enjoyed it immensely, and I'd probably do it again.

Have a wonderful evening, everyone.

Mary

Good afternoon: Well I talked so much at lunch in the cafe that I have literally two minutes to send my post for the day. I see all the prayer requests and I will certainly add them to mine. One minute left and I want you all to know that God has good plans for you in store. Let us all be expectant. You remember that Heinz ketchup commercial.....it had the song "Anticipation" in the background as they were waiting for the ketchup to come out of the jar....????

Well, even if you don't I wanna be in anticipation for some neat God appointments. We are reading about the Welsh revival at our wed. classes at church. Exciting book by Rick Joyner. Well now I have gone over my time by one minute! bye for now

We enjoyed summer like days for a while and now it is cool again. Our dogs didn't like being out in the heat and yet this morning they were scratching at the door to get in because it was cool . (lower 40's)

I worked outside again and got pretty sore so yesterday was a good day off. I had two meetings. I have been better at planning meals. We have had company all week. It is hard to get a minute to be at the computer.

If any of you like numbers this is the interesting about this week.
Sunday was 5 10 15 backwards 5 10 15
Monday was 5 11 15 read it backwards 1 11 15
This works through Tuesday 5 19 15 5 19 15

Wednesday, half way through this week already

Praying for Nancy, I'm so sorry for your loss..Pets are like family to us all and when they go they are truly missed. Mother's day was busy but nice, we had the family here for a cookout and celebrated my dad and sister-in-law bday. The company was fun and my oldest brother came down to be here too. It's easier to get through these holidays and events with family because we all miss my mom so very much. My workouts are going okay although today's eating flunked better days ahead :-) God bless and I hope everyone is enjoying the weather. Hoping to go on a ride soon with the hubby, he's been but not me..maybe Thu if the weather's nice..

Oh my, Sue! And with a Rotty, that would be a big pile! I know because we used to have a Great Dane, and for what he left behind, he might as well have been a cow!

Happy Mother's Day all! No big plans here. I visited my mom on Friday and today her house will probably be crowded with the rest of my siblings. Holly & the grands will be here after church, but that happens every Sunday, and I love it!

Enjoy your day...

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers. Also "Blessings to everyone because we all had a mother. Today after church we are going to Carol's home, (Daughter) She is doing brunch. She is a good cook.

Good for Hopi. That is a good beginning. I have to tell you this story. My daughter's dog Samantha (a Rottweiller) was always put in the bathroom when Carol went to work. She was a good sized puppy. Carol had a gate at the door of the bathroom. This was good as there was a pee pad in the bathroom. One day when Carol got home there was a pile in the living room. Samantha was still in the bathroom and the gate was still in place. It seems Samantha climbed the gate to relieve herself and then climbed back in the bathroom.

I will put Nancy on my prayer list. Dogs are so much a part of the family . Our dogs Teddy and Jack had a brother Sammy. Sammy had Lymphoma and died. Teddy still looks for him. Each animal has their own personality and bring such joy to the home.

Have a wonderful day today. Sue

Mary, sometimes we need that break. I know I do. Actually I'm not looking forward to logging my food today. We ate breakfast out(my treat) and then we had dinner out(his treat), so I don't mind missing lunch at all. Great ride though. I'd like to be on my own bike again, but my knees won't take it anymore, and the trike is really too big for me to be comfortable driving, so I guess if I want to go, I'll have to be the passenger. This way I do all the looking around I want!

I left Hopi, the dog, run loose in the house while we were gone. Usually I put her in the bathroom, where she can do no damage and has room to run around, but I want her to learn to behave herself in the rest of the house while I'm not there, and today she did me proud! She hasn't pottied in the house in months, so we're okay there, but I do catch her chewing or trying to bury her toys under the carpet or in my couch cushions. I've only had that couch for a year! But today she was good...

Please pray for my sister, Nancy, who is actually a member of this team. She had to put her dog and longtime companion, Cowboy, to sleep this morning. When she would come back to Pa to visit from Texas, Cowboy usually did, too, so we've lost an important member of our family.

Hope you all are enjoying the day...

Happy weekend, everyone.

Vicky, I hope you have a wonderful time. I never was much for riding on the back of my husband's bike. I'm too much of a control freak.

Alas, yesterday was a bad day for me. I didn't get a chance to eat lunch, so I grabbed a bag of Fritos and some green tea from a convenience store during my travels. Then I met a friend for dinner, drank wine, ate too much of good things and a little bit of bad things. Today, though, is another day, and a chance to practice abstinent eating, to exercise, and to get back on track. I guess one day out of nearly 60 isn't bad to fall off the wagon.

Have a wonderful, healthful, fun weekend, everyone.

Mary

Well, we're off on the motorcycle today, just for our own pleasure. Our 36th anniversary is on the 12th, and since we didn't make any plans to do it up big this year, we're just going to take today for ourselves. Picked a good day, too. The next door neighbors are having their pool dug, and it's going to be a little noisy. I'm so excited for them and their little boys!

Praying for Vessela, Sudie, and all of you today. Be blessed!

This morning is nice a cool and I went out to water my little plants. Our dogs went our with me and walked the yard. I am not pushing today. This was a busy week. There are things in the house that I just need to straighten up but that isn't heavy work like outside.

Ann It is so nice to have good neighbors. When people just step up and help on their own it is wonderful.

I have Vessela on my prayer list. Blood pressure is important to control. That is one of the problems I have. Stress can really make it shoot up. I pray that Vessela can find a way to help her situation.

Tomorrow is Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day to all. We will go to church and then have brunch at Carol and Bud's home. (daughter and son-in-law) Their dog, Lucy, will be so glad to see us. The dog is a hound but has Dalmatian black and white spots. She runs and goes everywhere. It will be a fun day.

Blessings to you all.

Sue-Sounds like you had a great time, I would like to have my own garden someday and I'm sure my dad would love to help me get it started. He is so amazing..he was here the other day planting some flowers for me, since we bought this house he has come every year for 8 years and planted and tended to something. He's great!! My brother Miguel usually helps me out too but he works landscaping so he is pretty busy in the summer himself. Me and the hubby ask questions and then we go from there-live and learn I guess..
Ann-That was very nice of your neighbor to do that for you. Tony was feeling much better today because he cut the grass and watered it where we seeded and then went to work :)) so glad for prayer and our holy father who cares so much about us..
Today was a crazy day at work and we have this dentist who is so wonderful but she has uncontrollable blood pressure so if you could all mention her in your prayers, i would gladly appreciate it. Her name is Vessela and she is bulgarian and is a very nice person and has a big heart. Before we left the office today she seemed down in the dumps about her situation and I tried to give her some comfort but she didn't respond well :(
I am still working out and trying to stay on track with the healthy eating. I just came back from our dinner with Great Grandma, we went to 99's and i had a chicken kabob salad with meditaranean salad dressing..It's delicous..then we got our haircuts. I am weighing in tomorrow and hopefully have lost something..well that's it for now I am tired after this long day, time to go rest..God Bless Everyone and have a wonderful Mother's Day!!! emoticon

Sue; I agree with you - God sends people on missions to help us, we had our lawn cut yesterday by our neighbour -- Terry had been looking for some cheap shoes to cut the lawn and could not find any....it was so hot outside - it is really too much for him and then he came home and voila!

Liz: I am so happy to hear your kids are praying...their hearts are so big....bring up a child in the way he/she should go.....sometimes kids surprise us but why should we be surprised. God can talk to them and they don't have as much baggage as we adults do. .

Last night after daycare pickup our grands were talking back and forth about how they wanted to by their mom a gift card for $25.00 from Walmart for their mom. Christian (8) said, well I don't have the full amount in my bank account so if you Abby (6) think you can help out.......they did not know we were listening. What good kids eh? So, we instead bought a big container of mums and a neat card. Their hearts are so big.

Tonight we are babysitting the grands til mom comes home from work. Then Friday we are going to a b'day party for friend Ross who is turning 65

Sunday we are going on the "shunpiker" which is an all day trip across the area on the quiet roads, stopping at attractions that normally have an admittance fee but are free that day, also nature sights, etc. We do it most every year on Mom's day.

Hello Vicky, New Librarian, Mellie and everyone else. Be blessed as you go on your weekend journeys!

Well back to work I go.

Everyone is busy. as busy here at my house. The music group met at 1 pm. I had to have the place ready. We have my husbands grandparents dining room table and it seats 12 with the big leaves put in. 12 of the 14 were here today. I was a bit tired when they came as I cleaned inside fast. I have been working outside.

Well after they all left my friend came over and we went to the near by greenhouse and looked at plants. I bought vegetable things. lettuce, Butternut squash, cucumber, green pepper and tomato plants. Then Helen helped me plant them and stayed for dinner. I am so glad to have them all planted Now I am down to a few feet of flower bed to clear and put down peat. Then have a fellow come over to move the stones and clear the weeds around them. Things are looking so much better.

Sometimes God sends us angels and they are named friends. They help out when needed.

Stay well and have a good Friday. Sue

I was in Dallas once when a tornado dropped by. We had just left the bus station in Fort Worth, got to my sister's in Dallas, and the tornado hit Fort Worth! When we left a week and a half later, they were still replacing windows in the bus station! This was after she had told me that tornadoes NEVER touch down in the metroplex, LOL...boy, was she wrong!

Wow, keep her safe Lord from all of the tornados, both real and wannabe!~

when I was visiting my sister Karen who was working in Texas at the time (Brownwood a town between Dallas and Forth Worth) it was in May 1981 and my son and I went for a walk. We thought the sky was looking rather greenish and gray. Anyway after a time at the park, we started back home and my sister Karen was frantic......don't you know there is a tornado warning, she said? Nope, we did not but we got home safely and only experienced some tongue lashing!

By the way Sue, you said it all, I say I agree and amen to all you said. Gotta get back to work its lunch time finis.

Hi, everyone. Yesterday, a town 90 miles north of me had a cold air funnel, which is sort of a tornado wannabe. It's always an EF0, rarely touches down, and has no radar signature. That this little skinny thing that took out a backyard shed was the lead-off story on the main news channel for the entire state will tell you that mostly our weather out here is unremarkable. I just lived in Dixie Alley for so long that the big storms still scare me. We're all well, expecting more rain, and that's about it.

I'm still eating well, remaining abstinent, and enjoying life. Hope you all are doing the same.

Where did the days go. I really pushed to get more done outside. I still have a small area to clear that is really a lot of weeds. My whole body has had exercise as I can feel it in my arms and legs and hands. Tonight I hope to finish that and then plant the vegetables.

Liz it is great that you and your husband are both doing the healthy eating. I just wish my husband would try. He only eats corn, peas, and green beans. No trying other veggies. He will eat salad with raw carrots etc.

Dee - Glad you are feeling better. These nice days help me feel better. You are in my prayers.

Vicky - Good for you. Eating out with friends is one of my problems. I will pray you can eat carefully. It is so easy to talk and eat with out knowing you ate all of it.

Ann - Thanks for you notes. We are in a house that is all on one floor with a full basement. It however has 4 bedrooms and a large living room and a large dining room. I can keep up the upstairs but the basement has a lot fo stuff that just needs to go to the Kiwanis yard sale.

Mary - I hope you get some rest. We are to get a severe storm tonight. I just clean up the lawn and the heavy winds and rain make a mess.

My clothes for summer got switched into the closet.. I can feel that they are not tight so I am smiling. I think the exercise and outside work have been a good start.

Back to the busy of the day.
Sue

Hello team, thank you for your messages. Definitely feeling better little by little. Newlibrarian I think its to do with my age as well (nearly 56). I'm starting a new job tomorrow so that will give me a little more routine to my week. Hoping you all have a good week. I'm praying for all who need it, blessings. Dee. XX

Praying God's angels of protection surrounds you all, and everything that belongs to you, during this season of crazy weather.

Waiting for time to pass before going out to eat with some friends. I already know what I'm having and am prepared to NOT over eat. Looking forward to the catching up with them...

Kitchen at work really seemed to get warm and sticky in a hurry! My goodness, it was so humid in there today...

Have a lovely evening, all...

Good morning, all. I am so sleepy, I can't stay awake at my desk. We had severe weather last night. Not severe like we used to have in Alabama (that was scary), but bad enough that one big cell sat right over our house. In one second, we had two big lightning flashes and two huge booms. Our chichuahua was shaking so badly, if we'd been on a waterbed, she'd have created waves. We kept worrying about the horses. They're one big bag of water, and lots of horses get struck and killed by lightning every year. The storm finally passed and we all got back to sleep, but I've only had 4-5 hours of rest, and I'm pooped. I foresee going to bed early tonight.

Have a great week, everyone, and keep the faith.

Good day all! Thank you for all the prayers and support I find here! It has been beautiful weather in Montana, and it looks like we may get some rain this weekend...we really need it! Please pray for me that I will turn to God for help in my efforts to get healthy. I need to remember that His grace is always available. Blessings upon all of you!

Hello All: I only have 6 minutes before returning to work. So I hope I get time to say all I want. had a fabulous weekend and we had marvellous weather. More about what I did next post. Vicky I have about the same colouring as you do and I have to be very careful about burning. I do feel for you so much. But your attitude is so amazing. Isn't it great to work on a fundraising project for something you really believe in? Take care and get out the aloe vera. Hope you enjoyed your time out on the weekend with the loved ones.

Sue, I know what you are talking about regarding finding a smaller place. I can handle living in a two storey but hubby is not too great with mobility problems so sooner or later we will look for a smaller place too. We were checking out condos just checking in the real estate papers, and Terry has gone from never gonna get one, to maybe these would be ok.

Sudie you are surrounded with prayers and soon, I pray you will have warm memories of your loved one more than the discouragement and depression that often comes because darn it all, we miss those people so terribly much.

Well, I did want to say more, Hi New Librarian, Hi to all, I promise to write more later on maybe tomorrow. Blessings galore and even more. He loads us up every day with new blessings.

Ann

It's a 2 month dvd.

Prayers for Sudie and ask for her to feel better. It is hard to get through some of the loss we all have to bear.

Vicky I hope you have cream on your face and ears next time. Do you tan easily. That would be good.. It is good to have fun with friends. That was a lot to raise. Wonderful.

Ann Thanks for the positives you send. I still haven't found a place to exercise. I have been really purring in hours outside and it is beginning to look good.

Prayers for everyone. and blessings for you today.

Happy Sunday, all! Today is the big biker blessing, but I'm not going. My grandson wants to go and since 3 of us can't ride one motorcycle, I'm sending him. Yesterday was our Run for the Son,(so far our chapter has raised about $10,000), and as usual, my face got burnt to a crisp. Today my eyes are puffy and my nose and cheeks are swollen, even my lips and ears are burnt. So I guess I should make it an indoor day. But it was worth it! What a beautiful day of riding and fellowship with other CMA chapters! As for my indoor day, I'm going to church with my daughter and granddaughter, then I'm taking them out for lunch and maybe a little shopping after that, all indoors!

I've managed to lose that pesky 2 pounds I keep regaining but I'm sure there will be more off by tomorrow, because a day of riding makes me retain fluid. Cannot wait to get on the scales!

Have a lovely day, all...

Vicky

Prayers for Sudie...May she feel the comfort of the Lord wrapping his arms around her telling her everything is going to be okay :-) I think my sister is having a hard time too, she seems a little depressed since my Mom's passing and doesn't visit my dad much. I think going to the house bothers her especially when he's not there :( I hope she gets over this as well but everyone grieves at there own pace. I went out on a date with the hubby yesterday, we drove up to the cape and tried something new. Nice little restaurant in sagamore not too crazy about the meal I got but I was in good company and had fun. We later stopped for ice cream then watched some tv together. It was a great night! I love my husband :-) lost 3 lbs this week :-) my hard work is paying off..I'm going for a run today and then I have to do a stretch dvd, the run is extra figured I'd better since I ate alot last night :-) :-) God bless Have a beautiful day and don't forget to smile!!

Beautiful day in North Dakota.
The wind even dropped a bit for an evening bike ride. NICE
We aren't your age yet Sue but we are starting to think about a smaller place. Not sure how it all works out yet.
Would like to take some years to serve in Africa if health and finances work out.

Sue computer's are crazy, half the time they don't do what we want..It's nice that you can say your going to need a smaller place, it takes pride and courage but your very young at heart even though your temple maybe faltering, your heart and soul are strong. God will let you know when the time is right and I believe you and your husband will know at the same time:) Enjoy the ride, you deserve it..God Bless

Computers can be messed up. I have tried to send a note twice and it says timed out and disappears. Trying again!! Today was pretty and raining off and on. between the rain drops I planed flowers in the part of the flower bed that was weeded and ready I have a lot of Perennials but the annuals add color to the variety of leaves on the plant that just show up.

This spring has been a stress time and I am working through it. We really need a smaller place to live. I can keep up the inside and outside. I have been praying for answers to the work load. Next Thursday I am going to see if anyone will be interested in taking on the organ group and keep it going. I think I can keep up through Oct. or if possible Dec. I'll be 77 this October and I am trying to get things in order. I have been doing this since 2005. Age just slows you down and even when you can get parts replaced they are not as easy to work with, M;y husband and I both have talked and we need to settled in some place we can both handle by the time I am 80. I may have said this already.

Bless each of you for all your notes. I can see we are all making a bit of progress.
You are all in my prayers.

Sue.

As one who is struggling with mood and depression issues through Menopause I can tell you God is real, Sunshine and exercise are amazing. Right now I have made some food/drink changes, waiting to see how that goes.
Hope the sunshine will help you get through the blues.

Thank you DEWAND1, I have felt comforted. Not back to myself yet but on the mend from a "down" spell that has been grim. Friends and family have been kind so I'm really very lucky. I've turned to God and my bible for comfort and I have faith that He has a good plan for me to start moving forward again soon. I'm really glad I found this team as its good to see how people are positive. Blessings, Dee. XX

Go at it Sue - I pray you have boundless energy as you work on your flower beds and other landscaping chores. Hopefully you will find a replacement for the Curves that closed. You encourage me in your posts.

Need to be slim3: I am glad you are feeling better. It does hurt to lose family members. I have lost my mom when she was only 47, then my two sisters one in 2007 and the other in 2008 and a brother, who passed away last year. It shakes you up for a while that is for sure. I pray that the God of all Comfort wraps his wings around you and gives you some of his precious healing love.

My step mom is in a nursing home and has dementia. My dad used to go every day, but he just goes once a week now. It seems that his visits get Betty upset. She thinks that they are divorced (they are not) and that Dad is married to someone else called Marion (he is not) I feel so much for both of them. In a way it is a kind of death - to their relationship any way,. My dad is so lonely. I pray that she has a manifested healing from the blood of Jesus. She still recognizes us, but wants nothing to do with my Dad. So awful for him.

New Librarian - good to hear from you. Keep on trucking, or biking, or whatever exercise you do next. You are definitely a going concern. Be blessed

Liz: I love what your pastor says, we are on a journey and as long as we don't give up then we are continuing on! Thanks for sharing sounds like you and your hubby are on the way to succcess with all you do! I gained back the two pounds I lost, but my measurements have not changed. I will NOT give up, but carry on

Vicky - Amazing news ....a spirit lifter to be sure .....it is the best thing when others notice your weight loss. It truly is a motivator to carry on.


I have been walking more than before, but not as much as I should. My knees have been hurting a bit, I wonder if it is the wedge sandals I wore all day Saturday? But I like them so much......

I love quiet as well. Even when I take my lunch most of the people are gone back to work. it is so hectic and noisy where I work, I love to sit back in an almost empty lunchroom and read! I love to walk in nature too. We have a man made pond across the street from our house and they have built up a kind of a park there too. Planted trees and bushes. The wild birds and wild life seem to have been making it their home as well. It is a good 30 minute walk for me to walk it in its entirety,

By for now, be blessed one and all, especially for our new team members.

Proud of you Vicky,
Liz, I love to work outside. It is great to hear the birds and the quiet.

I am working outside this week and looking around for a place to feel comfortable exercising.
Heading out to start on the flower garden on the left side of the house.

Praying for all of you to have a good day.

Wow! Two people in the last 24 hours, have noticed I'm taking off weight! If that isn't motivation, I don't know what is! And these are people who see me every day, so they normally wouldn't notice it. Thanks, Lord!

This has been abusy week. Monday we played at a nursing home and yesterday I really took the day to clean up the flowerbeds. I still have a bit to go.

Everyone sounds like they are on a roll for good health. I have to find another place to exercise ow that Curves closed. Yesterday it was gardening day so that took all my strength. Today is a slow day. I need to find energy again.

Pray that you are all staying well and finally can enjoy spring weather.

Morning all,
Trying to check in on teams I am not always present with today.
Sounds like spring is motivating for most of us.
I have been biking. I have also started reminding myself via Matthew West's song Day one that today is Day one of the rest of my life!
I am not being consistent about good eating but I am doing better than sometimes.
Yard work. UFF. Need to think about that. Not excited. Not sure I like getting that dirty.

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

GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE,
ANN-I AM DOING THE T25 WORKOUTS AND THE 5 DAY FAST TRACK EATING PLAN. I AM ON DAY 2, MY HUSBAND IS DOING THE CAVEMAN DIET WHICH CONSISTS OF NO CARBS. HE IS TRYING AND I AM HAPPY FOR HIM I HOPE HE IS ABLE TO GO THROUGH WITH IT. I WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOUR PASTOR'S WIFE AND HOPE SHE GETS WELL SOON :)
SUNDAY PASTOR SAID WE SHOULD STOP SAYING THAT WE ARE STARTING OVER OR RESTARTING BECAUSE THE ENEMY IS JUST REMINDING US OF OUR FAILURES. WE SHOULD JUST START OR CONTINUE WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING.IT WAS A GREAT SERMON. WE ARE CONTINUING OUR HOME FIXES, FINANCIALLY CHALLENGED RIGHT NOW BUT I HAVE FAITH THAT WE WILL CATCH UP AND NOW WE JUST HAVE SMALL REPAIRS TO DO WHICH HELPS. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK EVERYONE!!

:-)LIZ

Thankful that I'm starting to feel better after feeling a bit down. Got a chance to rest and recuperate. Dealing with the passing of another uncle. They are all very elderly now and have had good long lives. Time for them to go home.

My God loves me, he shelters me from harm.

Mellie: What a way to celebrate life! Praise God that you were able to do that together. I am praying that your knee won't cause you any more trouble.

Liz, what is the new thing you are trying this week? Just call me "interested", never nosy, ha ha ha. Isn't it great to have friends that are willing to pitch in and help out. Now those are friends indeed.

Our pastor's mom is experiencing breathing difficulties and has had many tests and is just awaiting the results. She has spent many a year herself as a pastor's wife and she is a dear person, now a widow who came out with us to the Retirement Home on Sunday after church to sing. She was pretty weak, so kept seated but also kept singing. So, if you have a moment to pray for Sheila, that would be great.

God bless you one and all. I am off to work with my decaf coffee in hand! The cheerios were good this morning. Nice and fresh and crunchy....

It was a year this past weekend that my daughter had a serious car accident so my husband, daughter, and I spent the weekend in TN and hiked to the Chimney Top in the Smokey Mts. Not surprising the hike up was difficult, but I was not prepared for the knee pain in one leg on the way down. It really slowed us down, but it seemed fine by the time we made it home yesterday. It was a good weekend.

had a super weekend.....Friday did nada

Saturday washed clothes while hubby worked in kitchen cleaning only until lunch time

Saturday after lunch, went and cashed in the gift certificate my hubby got me at Christmas for a manicure/pedicure. I got a lovely wine colour

On Saturday evening we went to church and attended a 50/60s get together for empty nesters with food from the 50's and 60's mostly comfort food. We had a contest about what we knew and or remembered about that time and we had karoke.
We dressed up as a 60's couple. Terry won best costume (I tye dyed his tshirt and gave him beads to wear, darkened his mustache and drew in long sideburns and extended his mustache with eye liner. Tied a silk tye dyed scarf around his head, he carried a denim man purse.

His prize was a gerber daisy plant!

Sunday - church and then we went to the retirement home with a group and sang out our hearts --- we really felt the Holy Spirit's presence on the last song.

Now I am just leaving work, be blessed one and all.

Ann

We usher today and need to be at church early.

Last night we had dinner with a couple that were celebrating their 67th wedding anniversary. They are the happiest couple and their health is good for this time. They are 87 and 88 years old. We really enjoyed the evening

Blessings to all of you today and praying you have a good week ahead.

Yes we do get blessings and some we just never even realize are there. I am blessed today to be up and had time to catch up on my scripture reading. We (husband and I) were able to get much of the outside done The grass has grown twice as fast this week. It is cool today only in the 30'a. I covered my plants. One of my friends is stopping by for a few minutes to visit. I can enjoy the day.

Vicky how great that you will finish on time. When the kids go into June they are there in body and dreaming in their minds. My friend is going to try to do some creative stations in June to keep their attention.

We usher on Sunday so we need to be up and there early.

Have a wonderful weekend all.
Sue

Ann, I have so many blessings I cannot count them all--but lately it has been getting beads for free or trading an item for them! I am going to make my sister's birthday presents this year and have been having a blast doing it...of course, my friends and family are high on my list too!

Sue, we've been making up days all along. I've only had 2 days off since the beginning of the year. All the rest have been make up days. We finish up the first week in June, because we didn't start until the Wednesday after Labor Day, so basically, we're finishing up on time.

Doing fine so far today staying on track. Hope tomorrow goes as well...

Sue: I think the fact of the looming summer and the weather when we all wear much less has got me finally into getting back on track with the exercise. Last Friday we walked a lot at a park with the family, and then on Monday we walked again at another park. Looking back those were some warm days. Boy it is sure nippy today. I decided against the parka but that snow on our car led me to wear a hat, scarf and gloves and boots! I know that the spring is coming and perhaps one day it will stay. Glad to hear you don't have to go back to the doctor for I think it was two years and that you are going in the right direction for keeping muscles strong.

Hello to one and all - I read a devotion in the newspaper and it was talking about a scripture that says the Lord loads us up daily with blessings. One of my blessings is my grandkids....how about you all?

Thank you Liz. I need to do yard work too but it is cold and going to rain again. I do better when I stay out of the kitchen and don't have a lot of people to feed. I can weed or rake and enjoy the birds and outside and not be tempted with food.

Vicky did I ask you if you have make up days this year at your school because of the winter weather? Our schools are going into June for a couple weeks because they have to have180 days of school. The seniors get off because graduation is a set date in May.

Stay healthy all and we will be fit for summer.
Blessings Sue.
