I do both but liked baking better

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I just don't like to cook at all any more. So I try to get away with fast easy stuff on the stove top or microwave now. But I had done it all before. But boyfriend really likes doing it and is so much better at it, I would rather just let him do it and me just eat it and clean up after it. But I have been cooking or microwaving these last 2 weeks that he was in Canada for work. I didn't starve myself, or resort to just getting take out food, lol.

I'm definitely a night person - hence, the overnight work shift is my preferred time period. I switch to "normal" scheduling when off of work and I struggle to get up early during those days. Last son is a senior in High School so we won't need to be up early for school after this school year unless he decides to go to college in town here. That doesn't seem to be an option that he's willing to look at, though.

I preferred to sleep in and stay up and catch the news when I was on my own. But since moving in with the BF and his son, sleeping in is a rare thing for me, as they are all really early birds. But they like to stay up late too. But they really are not interested in watching the news. Bf only seems interested in the sports part of the news, and his son is not interested in it at all it seems. So I get most of my news from the Internet now. But when ever they are both gone like this week and last week I have been sleeping in and watching the news.

Quincy had surgery at 1 yesterday. The infection is in her right shoulder. They got the pus out and out of the bone. Drilled holes in the bone and put in drains there and in the incision. Still don't know what strand of bacteria they are fighting. First culture was from the joint fluid and didn't contain the infection. When the results come in (usually staph) they will know the exact meds to have her on. There's a 50% chance she will have to have the same surgery in a few days because they didn't have her on the exact right combo of meds and it will need cleaned out again. At least they didn't find cancer. Again this is osteomyelitis. 1 in 10000 ever get it. Caused usually by a scratch on the skin and the staph we have on the skin enters the body. But she had no scratch. She was sick 10 days before, and they said that is a possibility. Although I don't care for medical doctors much, they are saving her life. Without antibiotic she would have died. She will be in Children's hospital for over a week. Before the good oral meds, they were intravenous only and in for 6 wks. Very serious condition, and not out of the woods yet. So Daddysgirl and everyone please keep praying. She just turned 4 a month ago.
UPDATE her -markers for infection are still Waaaaay to high. They will be cutting off all food at midnight and she will be having another operation tomorrow. ~sigh~

Good Morning Team!

Question of the Day:
Are you a Night Person or a Morning Person?

Me, I am a morning person. I would rather be up at 4:30-5 AM and then be in bed by 8 PM to do some reading before I go lights out!

Not sure about this year but last year we had Lasagna! My sister was hosting and she makes a great lasagna!

For us it's pretty much just another day - and we are thankful for every day.

We usually have turkey and the last few years it's been breasts instead of a whole bird because nobody eats dark meat anymore.

Always turkey with all the trimmings. I love using the turkey in other recipes if we have left overs. I debone the turkey and freeze 1 - 2 cup packages. When turkeys are on sale at Thankgiving time I buy 2 or 3 and keep them in the freezer for Christmas and through out the winter!! There is nothing more inviting that the smell of roasting turkey when you come through the front door! ;-)

Good Morning Team!

Mary if I hope you get to spend the day with your daughter, I have plenty to keep me busy with the farm and all. But I just may give you a call if I sit down long enough. :-)

Debby I will keep your GD in my prayers. Thank God you live up here now!

Question of the day:
What do you normally eat for your thanksgiving?
I love turkey, but sometimes when I am not having a large group I love to have a GOOD steak with a big salad. YUM!

Not sure now. My Granddaughter has a medical emergency. Ever hear of osteomyelitis? Not good. She just turned 4. She will be in hospital for at least a week plus, and that's without surgery. Surgery was suppose to be today to scrape the pus off bone in her arm and remove joint fluid. They didn't do it. On our way home, the MRI specialist said "oh no, it has to happen after all tomorrow." If you look up what this is, you'll be scared too.

Well we are hanging loose with our plans until we know about Baby's birth. We have the possibility of having it here or delivering it to the kids if Baby has just come or all meeting at her family's home. ;-) But we will celebrate somewhere!! And my middle son will be home!! Can't wait to see him again!

Good Morning Team!

Question of the Day: Are you going somewhere or are you hosting Thanksgiving? Since Canada already had their Thanksgiving you can answer past tense.

As for me, my daughter was suppose to come over and she says she forgot and accepted someone else's invite so I am going to have a very quiet Thanksgiving and watch the parade. Something I don't usually get to do! :-)

I have both and might need to get a new ball since I think this one may have a small leak in it.

I have neither of them. But I have used the stability ball both the times I got sent to PT. I don't know where I would keep either of them and not have the dog or kid from getting at them? I am not sure the dog wouldn't try to chew either of them. And the kid might be okay with either, or he could hurt himself with them, or destroy them. I really have thought about getting the ball though on and off.

I have a mini trampoline and DVD work out to go with it. I used it a lot when I first started losing weight. I need to use it again.

Good Morning Team!

Question of the Day:
How many of you have a stability ball or a mini trampoline or Both?

I have both and that way I still can do something for myself even when I am feeling weak and not wanting to exercise.

Please take care to have a kits in case of an emergency. Your lives could be in jeopardy if you don't have this kit.
Even something as silly as candles and clay pots will keep you warm in a bathroom if need be. Please think this through and stay safe!

We are NOT prepared in case of a prolonged power outage. It's something that we've talked about but haven't acted on yet.

have candles, lantern and a generator along with stuff that we had from camping and fishing stuff to keep healthy but do need to get more food stuff just in case that happens. With living in Florida we get that often and hurricanes will mess with the power too. So I am half prepared for that and did experience that power going out for over 6 hours too.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Some stuff we have and others not enough or none. We have some bottled water, but not enough for a long time. We have candles, oil lamps, camping lamps, flash lights and batteries. We have a propane grill and a smoker for use outside. I think the bf has a camp stove stashed way? No generator or a lot of the stuff you would need for a long outage. I have lots of blankets and some sleeping bags. I have two down comforters, and a dog that likes to keep my feet and legs warm at night, lol.

I love to camp so I have a lot of stuff that can be eaten in the great outdoors. I have an outdoor grill if I jut had to cook something. Would probably start grilling meat and sharing with the neighbors before I would let it go bad. I lived in a house that was not finished with no water, gas or electricity and finished that house and got my kids educated at school and we never missed a meal or a shower so I know how things are done. I rotate my canned goods during the year so that nothing is out of date. I know how to use my camping lanterns. I don't rely on batteries very much because of the fact that they are expensive and lamp oil and propane go farther and are way cheaper.

I can cook on the wood stove but that is something we all should be thinking about as well. You don't want to be opening the fridge if you don't have a generator. So food stuff that you can eat without cooking if necessary or needing something from the fridge to complete it. Just a thought!

Good Question because I don't have the right things. ALL candles were lost because after the fire the ones that survived would not survive the heat of being stored in Havasu's 120o summer. I did get emergency candles. I have some bottled water, but not enough I'm sure. We do have a propane fireplace insert. But notice it has a turn on switch on wall. Hmmm wonder how else it can be turned on. Thank you, for getting me thinking.

Good Morning Team!

Question of the Day: If you lost power right now, how prepared are you for a long outage?

I am prepared with lamps. flashlights, woodstove with a lot of wood, lot's of bottled water. I have a generator but it is very old and it wasn't working for me. That is why I said I am getting the whole house automatic generac system. No more having to mess with power cords all over and trying to pull on a cord to get it started.

Thank you Debby I do feel the love with this team! I have a very hard time reading my phone so I miss a lot. Not on purpose just because I can't get my eyes to focus on that small of font! emoticon
So, if I don't respond to something it isn't because I don't care I just can't see it off my phone. All my Healthy Tip stuff is on my computer. I store them there as I come up with them, So if my computer is down so am I.

Oh My!! Thankful you were out watching it!! Why do adults think that is funny for Halloween. Just like the kids that were murdered at the church because they all thought it was part of the skit and just sat there. emoticon

Thanks Debbie, I did find it! ;-) Today is DDil due date. No labor and no baby yet. :-) I know it can be a couple weeks yet so no stress here. The baby will come in due time. ;-) Everyone was hoping but we will just hope a little longer! It is really cold and we have had sleet and maybe snow before morning. Hope the roads are ok as I have some errands to run. ;-)

Please be careful if you are in those areas that is in freezing conditions. We had no snow or ice just frozen ground and someone lost control. PLEASE be careful!

EJ so glad that you are ok and hope that the person is ok too, I know about that happening too because I had it done on the 20th of October and that put my power out until 8"30 at night and so glad that it was cool too when that happened but also found out that others had their power out from someone hitting a transformer but that is not what caused the power from mine and my neighbors house to go out. Turns out that there was cable that burned and that is why I heard a pop right before the power went out and I am still waiting for them to put it back in the ground and not have it sit on the surface. Was real scary with that being open and with all the kids coming around for Halloween too. Some thought that it was a good decoration but I informed that that it is live wire and that they can be killed from it. I think one of the moms thought that I was kidding until she looked at my face and that told her that I was not joking about it and she told her children not to mess with it.

So glad to hear you are all okay! I just happened to watch some news last night and they were talking about a schedule power out for parts of Escondido today. But luckily so far I haven't had any problems. All my best to you all always. Janette

Hey AJ I found your story! What a day you had!! Mercy!! Glad you had heat and now have power again. A generator is always good to have. Never know what can take out our power.
Hope the person is ok too or will be.

EJ what a blessing you were prepared! I have also heard you can add a hand pump to a well so you can still get water when the power is out.
