I'm having a busy day and a good one! It's beautiful and sunny, I got to play outside a bit and got lots done with sale process paperwork, payments and the like and a mad man to deal with.

He wanted a unit at the other location and Tommie is off this weekend. No one is at that office and he was having a fit. I had a unit here and his wife didn't want IT because the cameras aren't focused on it and they were storing VERY expensive furniture. He asked if HE could call some manager to come in out there and I told him no. I'm not giving him numbers for off duty managers when Tommie should STOP taking weekends off. Zach ok's them and then nobody else is there (and shouldn't have to be). She has two more weekends coming up and gives no thought to the Monday-Friday folks she inconveniences in doing this.

Debbie (another office) was trying to help him and she doesn't have keys to that place or temporary codes. I have an office key but no lock keys so couldn't unlock the unit he wanted...and I don't know how to get in the computer there to do a move in/payment. BUT...us who have nothing to do with that situation are the ones in the grinder when the boss gets mad. It's MY opinion that she should be told "you signed on for weekends, so stop asking for them off."

That's my whine of the day...no cheese emoticon

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Hope everyone is doing well. I'm feeling a bit puny this morning and afternoon. My sinuses are really clogged today. I guess I should do my nebulizer! I'm going to go lay down with my book after I get done paying some bills.

Love y'all.

God bless, Kim

I love that cat! I saw the cutest video on FB yesterday...a Golden lab took his teddy bear and got in a floater in the pool and set sail. It's adorable. Another was a picture of one, sitting on the cat. The cat says" You see what he's doing here, and you just stand there and take a picture"...I love animals. They are gifts from God emoticon

I just had some steamed veggies for a late lunch. I'd bought a steamer tray thing for the microwave. It's too big for my home MW but fits here fine. It did ok but not "awesome" likt my pot at home. The green beans didn't get done and some carrots were still on the hard side...so next time I'll go about 12 minutes instead of 9.

Thanks for the freebie list. I'll go check it out emoticon

Kitty didn't like it either! LOL! We buy the containers of mix at Sam's and usually have to throw some of it out before we can eat it all. I like the spinach. Wade has been getting the lettuce and romaine mix with the purple cabbage. I like to put fruit and nuts in my salad - well, both my yogurt salad and my veggie salads. I ran out of dried cranberries so right now I am using apple and pineapple.

Not much else going on with me. Here's a link to a few Kindle freebies: www.ereaderiq.com/freebies?c=6190467

Woohoo! Those losses are great....even when it's rebounds like mine! Those meatballs sounds yummy and really simple! Me too! I want dinner quick and easy...

I did a nice veggie medley for dinner last night in my steamer pot. I put a handful of baby carrots and 4 baby potatoes in the bottom, then in the steamer section I had green beans, broccoli, squash and onion...Yum! I was lazy and just had a HB patty for protein, and I still haven't cooked a fish filet yet, but will...soon!

I am unhappy with the speed at which produce rots emoticon I put salad veggies (fresh mind ya) in my to go containers just yesterday. The one I brought for lunch was already turning brown and unappetizing. I ate it but wasn't a happy camper. I may try just buying the lettuce, not bagged salad mix next time and see if that makes a difference. I always add my things to it before eating...radish, cucumber, red onion, tomatoes, a few olives.. In the meantime, I'll try to gobble these up without looking closely emoticon

I did it! I made the meatballs in my Instant Pot, and they were pretty good. I used BBQ sauce as the base. I made the meatballs with an egg and French Onion Dip mix. That kind of got lost in the flavor of the the BBQ sauce though. I made the meatballs ahead of time and put them in the fridge, since that is what the recipe I saw did. When it was time to make them, I just put in my sauce, popped my meatballs in the pot, hit "slow cooker" then I adjusted the timer to 14 minutes and in 14 minutes I had a pile of perfectly cooked meatballs swimming in this yummy sauce. The cooker is really quiet too. Mom's stove top pressure cooker is loud with it's little thing on the lid whistling all the time, but I had to put my ear up against this one to make sure that it was working! Yep, I could hear the bubbling of the sauce going on in there! I love it, because I am an impatient cook - that's why I do so little of it. When I'm hungry, I want to eat now! Now I can! Pot some chicken in there with some veggies and sauce and I have my whole meal in less than 15 minutes! Woohoo!!! And left over meals for other nights as well.

Not much else going on today. I'm watching for my new TENS unit to get here!

Oh, I was down to 213.8 this morning. I haven't see the 213's for several weeks - that made me very happy!

Y'all have an awesome evening. Love ya

God bless, Kim

So true Kim, and too many churches today comply with the world's view, so they don't "offend" anyone with the truth.

Meatballs....it's been forever since I made any but I'd bake them in my toaster oven. I like them with salads too, or with my steamed veggies. I'd think beef broth would be a good liquid choice for the pot method. I'm betting you get some good input from Wade...and they will be yummy.

I did a produce run on Tuesday and prep yesterday........I have green beans, yellow and zucchini squash, asparagus, broccoli, carrots, onions, ready for the steamer pot. I got some raspberries (for the first time), blackberries (yum!) and strawberries, as well as fresh salad veggies. I had three each of apples and grapefruit in the fruit bin, tho I'm not sure if they are still edible. I'll find out emoticon

I need to get ready for work so will see y'all there.......have a blessed day all. emoticon

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

That's why the way is narrow and there are few that find it - because people don't want to walk in obedience to Christ! They want to have their lawlessness and heaven too.

I'm going to be making some meatballs in a few minutes. I need to have some sort of sauce or liquid in the pot when I cook them, but I don't want tomato sauce. I want to eat the meatballs with my salads, and I can't imagine tomatoey meatballs on my salad - yuck! I'll get them all made and then when Wade comes home he can help me figure out the liquid part. I'm just going to mix them up with French Onion mix as well as slip in some egg and flax powder to hold them together. I don't want them to taste like mini meatloaves though. Oh well, Wade knows I'm not a cook! I looked up recipes, but the ones I looked up were really complicated - Curry Meatballs - yuck. Or Tomato Sauce Meatballs - no thank you! Why can't someone just make a plain meatball?! Even my Amish cookbook doesn't have a recipe for meatballs! Oh well, time to go experiment - yahahaha!

Love y'all.

God bless, Kim

That scripture from Matt. 7 is very sobering. One sees a lot done "in Jesus' name" - but it's by our fruit that we are known.

I've been doing sermon transposition for my Bible Study and Ezekiel has been the topic for the past few days. Here is part of what I was transposing today.

Ez 3:17-21 "Son of man, I have appointed you a watchman to the house of Israel; whenever you hear a word from My mouth, warn them from Me.
18 "When I say to the wicked, 'You shall surely die'; and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.
19 "Yet if you have warned the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself.
20 "Again, when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I place an obstacle before him, he shall die; since you have not warned him, he shall die in his sin, and his righteous deeds which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand.
21 "However, if you have warned the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; and you have delivered yourself."


17 – God makes Ezekiel watchman to the house of Israel. The gates of cities closed at night to keep out enemies, the watchmen were placed on the walls. Ezekiel was to give the people warning. He is a gift to Israel.
18 – If Ezekiel didn't warn the wicked of their wickedness and they die in that sin, their blood would be on Ezekiel's hands. Some people's wickedness is more obvious than others. We are a watchman for someone – if we don't warn them, whether they listen or not, their blood will be on our hands. God doesn't want us to just talk to people, He wants us to warn them; that's why you need a hard head and a soft heart.
19 – If you give warning and he doesn't turn, then you have delivered yourself. You are to warn the wicked of his wickedness and his wicked ways. His sinful nature and his sinful deeds. Some may turn from their wicked deeds, but not from their wickedness. You are to tell them that they are just sinners, but that they have a sinful nature and that they can be delivered. If you don't get delivered from your sinful nature, you are ultimately not delivered from your sinful behavior. The old-man is not suppressed or “kept under”, he is not weakened, and at the most inopportune time he rises up and bursts forth with ugliness. If the devil keeps you falling, you will eventually get tired of repenting and give up because you “can't make it anyway”. You can be free from this! The Holy Spirit can fill you with so much love that you just go forth and serve Him without being up and down.
20 – He was to warn the righteous man who commits iniquity to repent – if he is not warned, he would have died in that sin and his righteous deeds forgotten, and his blood on Ezekiel's hands. A man can be righteous, and he can turn from his righteousness – despite what Calvinists say. (Ez. 18:24 "But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that a wicked man does, will he live? All his righteous deeds which he has done will not be remembered for his treachery which he has committed and his sin which he has committed; for them he will die.”; Ez. 33:12-13 "And you, son of man, say to your fellow citizens, 'The righteousness of a righteous man will not deliver him in the day of his transgression, and as for the wickedness of the wicked, he will not stumble because of it in the day when he turns from his wickedness; whereas a righteous man will not be able to live by his righteousness on the day when he commits sin.' 13 "When I say to the righteous he will surely live, and he so trusts in his righteousness that he commits iniquity, none of his righteous deeds will be remembered; but in that same iniquity of his which he has committed he will die.” There is not a works righteousness; he that does wickedness shall die, and he that does righteousness shall live – Mt. 7:21-23 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. 22 "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' 23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'”). A righteous man who sins and dies in that sin – his deeds will not be remembered (Ez. 18:24; 33:13 see above). It doesn't say that they didn't do righteous deeds, it says that the righteous deeds they did will not be remembered. Jesus can say, “I never knew you,” because He doesn't remember them. You could have done all these great deeds, but if you practice lawlessness God doesn't remember you. All that counts is where you are when you take your last breath – your rewards are affected by how you lived your life; but where you end up is where you are when you take your last breath, and if that's in sin then your righteous deeds are forgotten. When you are humbled you will not stumble!

Love Y'all

God bless, Kim

I find shopping to be such a chore these days! I know it will be easier once I get back up to muster emoticon Thanks for all prayers in my behalf! I so appreciate them...and need them emoticon You stay in mine as well...

The pain is why I do my work in 15 minute spurts! It gets done, by the grace of God and in His strength...just not as fast as I like some days. I have to rest between things more so than I used to. The only "marathons" these days is laundry and shopping. The rest is all "sprints"...

Today, my kitchen, clothes and collections is on the list. I'll put together a short shopping list while I go through the kitchen.

It's my weekend and I will enjoy it greatly. Be blessed best where most needed ladies! I'll be back emoticon

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Went shopping with Wade today and got some walking in. My right SI joint did pretty good, although it was hurting some this morning. I ordered a new TENS unit, so we will see if that helps. I have the other one that I ordered from Amazon, but all of the buttons are on the outside and it keeps shutting itself off. The one that I got from the doctor doesn't work any more. The new one that I ordered has a cover over the buttons and the reviews are really high for it - so we will see how it works. I need to do something - I am becoming a couch potato. I try to do things, but after a few minutes my back starts hurting and I go and sit back down again - not even exercise, just doing the dishes hurts me. I did cook up some chicken the other evening and that worked out fine - woohoo!

Praise the Lord, the rain stopped and the sun came out for a little while. It's pretty windy out there right now, but it's warm - yeehaw!

I found this new water - Bai. It comes in these odd flavors. I tried the Dragonfruit (that used to be my password on our Windows8) and it was really good. There are two servings per bottle, so they should last me longer - one serving plus the de-caf coffee and protein drink are my limit for the day unless I am feeling dehydrated.

Bren, I'm sorry you are still hurting, sweetie. You are still in my prayers.

I hope that y'all have an awesome evening. Love ya

God bless, Kim

Oh that sounds like fun in the making Kim! I LOVE kitchen gadgets and y'all know what a hoarder of plastics I am...need a drawer for the containers and another for lids. emoticon Your pot sounds like something I'd like. I have a wonderful steamer pot for the stovetop. It's stainless steel, good quality and I use it fairly often.

I put the things that take longer to cook in the water at the bottom...carrots, baby taters etc., then the other quick cooking ones in the top...asparagus, onion, broccoli and the like. I want to do a fish filet in it so will play with that this coming week.

I went to the Family Dollar for a few things this morning. I was looking for hair things and their selection needed stocking! I bought two items...love 'em...and some Pine sol for the office.

It's super windy so if I finish rounds I'll need to spray my hairs down or use a headband. I keep a good supply of hair doo-wa-dillies here at the office. I'll wait until I "have" to go out...and rest some first. I cleaned at home before work...and it was against my will today so I prayed for help and did it anyway.

I brought tea with me instead of buying some on the way. I can save about $9.00 a month if I'll do that each Sunday.
We got some more rain at 5:00 as I was leaving work yesterday. You enjoy it while it's at your place!

"My" roses are blooming so pretty and the heavy rain beat them up pretty good. I have pink, yellow and red...lovely! I do look for insects before I bury my face in them. emoticon

I used my wall ball twice yesterday. My right arm complained a lot. I'll give it some more time and look for less taxing ways to use it, to build some strength up. I was SO tired and in a lot of pain this morning. I do scare myself sometimes.

Be blessed this week ladies...take good care of yourselves. I'll do that at my place too emoticon

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Happy Saturday everyone. It sounds like you've been productive!

My Instant Pot came this morning. Bren, the inside comes out for easy cleaning! I was reading some of the recipes. It has a saute button, getting the pot very hot. You put in your onions and garlic and oil, and whatever you want to saute,and when that is done you just fill it up close the lid, hit manual, the time and let it cook! So cool. I'll have to think up something to cook in the next few days. I had some chicken in the fridge, but it was on the verge of bad, so I cooked it all last night.

We are going to be getting your rain, Bren! It looks like storms are coming too. Woo-wee! End times weather can get vicious, like those Texas floods!

Love y'all. Be safe.

God bless, Kim

This morning I met with the women from my church for a prayer meeting followed by testimonies. I love hearing what the Lord has done!
Afterwards, I picked up DD and we went to a family owned ice cream place that just opened for the season. We forgot how BIG their SMALL was - "Next time, we gotta get KIDDIE cones!" But anyway, we ate that ice cream. It's a SOMETIMES treat. Then I took her to Supercuts to get her hair cut; then Walmart so she could look for pants for my grandson who is growing just so quick (the 9-yr-old). Then we stopped at a supermarket to get ice cream to bring home for the other guys. For some reason I'm not real hungry!
I haven't exercised yet today, and I'm dragging my feet about it. But I did do a few bridges and leg raises in my bed!

I used to visit China Star here in town but haven't been in many years. I gave it up when I went thru the Meniere's stuff.

I'd think any dog should be a lap dog! They don't care if they are as big as their human, they don't outgrow the lap.

I really enjoyed the rain yesterday, once I got out of it! I'm hoping to do rounds at work today so have that on my list if it clears enough. I'll take my Kindle today for down time entertainment. I printed several pages from the diabetes section here and will go thru those today too. I "know" some things but haven't been applying that to my program.

I need to stop by Wal-Mart on the way to the office so will pick up a ball while there.....

I'd e-mailed my Dr. for meds scripts...he renewed the heart meds but I haven't heard back on the others so I'll contact him soon...I don't want to run out.

Have a blessed weekend all.........be good to yourselves emoticon

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

I'd been hankering for some Chinese food. This morning a client picked up 2 special order dogs, so I invited DD and DGD for lunch at my favorite triple-Asian restaurant (Chinese, Thai, and Vietnamese.) DD and I ordered a Viet dish for DGD to encourage her to try something different. We shared an order of Thai soup, in a coconut broth with shrimp and bean sprouts. Yummy!
Later DGD and I took a little walk around the block (10 minutes - my non-artificial joints complained!) with the dog. He's a HUGE boxer but thinks he's a lap dog. Here he is with my DD.

Oh a new toy! I hope you enjoy using it....My Mom had given me a pressure cooker. She never learned how to use it and I didn't even try. It was so heavy emoticon So I asked Jesus to bless her for giving it to me...and put in the laundry room for someone else. I did that with a slow cooker as well. The things are so heavy, and while I love using them, handling for cleanup is a chore, then putting it back in the closet, when I can't lift high enough to get it on the shelf...whine. Yep...counter space is hard to come by!

Our lunch was good. I got the grilled Tilapia and veggies, no butter, rice, potato or salad...asked the server to have them back off the salty spice, and had unsweetened tea. Very good! I went to their site for comparisons. They actually have some items with over 6000 mg sodium emoticon I was shell shocked! Yep...if we don't check the stats on items entered by others on our trackers, we often don't get a true picture...of the damage we could do emoticon

The meeting part droned on and on about repairs to property, and as managers, we need to do regular rate increases to get more money in the store...(for the bosses). We don't have the authority for either, and my boss put the hefty insurance check after damages in his account. We've had three increases in the 16 years I've been here. The last one was October of last year.

Three of us made out like oinky bandits! In the drawings for $50 gift cards...Sharon got the first for Texas Roadhouse, I got the second for Red Robin and Tommie got the third for Olive Garden I think. We didn't have the crowd that normally shows up. There were about 20 of us instead of the usual 50-60. That did alter our odds somewhat!

We had a major rain/hail storm. It started before we left the restaurant, and we had flooded streets and got soaked. It's passed for the time being. I've had three rentals today...hooya! Two while the storm was in progress.

I'm going to play for awhile and rest...I'll see y'all here later!

It makes you wonder if they check the nutritional value of stuff or just put it on that list because it's chicken and fish!

Wade and I ordered an Instant Pot yesterday. It's a crock pot and pressure cooker in one. It also does five other things as well, but the pressure cooker will be great. Pop some chicken in there and 20 minutes later supper has gone from frozen to ready. Bean soup won't take two days but just an hour or so. Yeehaw! This thing will even make yogurt! We'll have to see how it does that. The reviews for it were really good, and we'd been looking for both a crock pot and a pressure cooker for awhile. We have a crock pot, a big one and a little one, but we wanted a littler one - well, we ended up with a 6 quart Instant pot - as big as our big crock pot - oh well, we'll just have to make enough to freeze! Now to find some counter space - yikes!

Love y'all.

God bless, Kim

I took that tip from you last year Kim. They'd come everyday for the buffet if they didn't have to forage for anything emoticon

I got my ball aired up and in the house, and plan to start using it during TV time. I'll start the arm exercises as well. I do want to build some strength up.

I had a really bad night last night, felt sick a few times and was in trouble when I got up...FBS was 340 and I felt awful. I prayed a lot, took some meds, rested...and do feel better now. That was rough and I'd really like to stop doing that. emoticon

We are having our annual TSSA meeting/lunch at The Cotton Patch again. I put my meal in my tracker and was shocked at the 57 G protein of the "heart healthy" grilled chicken. Sodium levels on their stuff is ridiculous...and dangerous. Last year I had the grilled Tilapia with skinny veggies. I may trade...if I check it against the chicken, at 702 mg sodium. I really like that our tracker has such an awesome selection, even the Nutri-system items are in there, Golden Corral and the like...way cool.

I'm glad today for slow times at the office...so I can work on my recovery.....

Be blessed and strengthened today...love and hugs~

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

We do that with the birds too, Bren. We'll feed them until the food is gone and then start feeding them again when things die back.

Wade's home for a couple of days off. He's a busy beaver. We talked to the real estate folks who helped us find our house. They will go over and take a look at Mom's house and see what needs to be done. They said that right now it's more of a buyers market so if she's not in a big hurry, now isn't the time to put it on the market. I like this couple. They could have told us to put it on, because they wanted the commission, but they weren't looking out for themselves, they were looking out for their client! Just like they did with us! Hopefully the market will shift by the time she is ready to move. She does want to set a price for the house to move, so it may not make much of a difference any way.

Brrr. I'm back to thermal and sweatshirt with the little heaters going. (whine with cheddar)

Not much else going on. Watching a couple of Redbox movies today and trying to stay warm. Love y'all.

God bless, Kim

Oh yes...72-75 sounds perfect... emoticon

We're having a cold front, which I am enjoying. It did hit 80 yesterday so I scorched all the way home with the window down (no AC) and sunshine beating on me. I'm glad I don't have far to go. I get really hot.
We are expecting more rain too and we sure need it. Of course I had James do lock outs yesterday, so I'll have to tool around in it some when folks pay...and take them off.

I had a rough night. When I woke up, I was dreaming I was facing jail time for a hot check for $10...for Church's chicken. That's bad. When fast food infiltrates my dreams...this is not the first time, but jail is a new twist.

I had a new kitty show up this morning but it ran away. I had five regulars. It was probably curious at the crowd hanging out at my door. It is quite a sight emoticon

I gave the birds the last of their food on Tuesday morning so they will fend for themselves until winter. I sure like watching them...I had many dove coming and a few robins. No colors tho. I miss the cardinals and blue jays.

Have a great day all...I'm off to get ready for work and look up dough wads.



In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Hi, ladies. Hope you're having a wonderful day.

We are having another rainy one. It's a bit chilly too. Yesterday was tricky. It was rainy, but when you went outside it was warm and humid! Inside I was chilly. I can't wait for the inside of my house to warm up! LOL! We've had the air conditioning on already though, but for some reason there are days it just doesn't fee warm in here, even though the thermometer says 70 degrees! I hope that our island is around 72-75 degrees - I think that I can be warm then.

Wade is cleaning stuff out so we can get the basement cleaned out and ready for Mom. We're pretty sure that this time she is determined to move. She is even sending some of her stuff over here.

Not much else. I'll talk to y'all later. Love ya

God bless, Kim

Owww! Hope that pain is gone the rest of the way today. What you said is right. Do we get to the point where we "crave" healthy stuff? I'm thinking we will. There's even a cereal called Crave, with chocolate centers. Like we need those things emoticon

You did good Shel. I have all my treats eaten and am taming the mini-me within who demands them. SF puddings, cool whip, Fiber One snack bars...chips still call me regularly, so I can't let them come home with me.

We had wonderful rain Monday night and it's been a bit cooler. We had 62 at 5 PM. I like it. Our day today is supposed to start at 48 and climb to 80 by 5:00.

My arm pain is better, tho it's still weak, shaky and I don't have full range of motion yet...I am so thankful it's coming! It will be seven weeks Saturday since my fall.

I need to stop at Wal-Mart for office things on the way to work so I'll get busy....and get ready. Have a blessed day Ladies emoticon

So true, Shel. And the more you eat healthy, when you do eat snacks, they don't taste nearly as good either. Good for you on passing them up. I've found several good recipes on Pinterest for healthy muffins and even cookies. They have these toast ideas for breakfast as well that look so yummy. I don't eat carbs for breakfast though so I haven't tried any yet. SP has lots of recipes on Pinterest.

Had a sharp pain in the back yesterday, on the right side, but praise the Lord it is about half way gone today. I'm pretty sure it was my right SI joint because it didn't hurt until I was walking. I hope that joint isn't degenerating!

Well, y'all have an awesome day! Love ya

God bless, Kim

Sunday I took a day off from exercise (besides I was sore from Saturday!) And yesterday I was downright lazy. I mean, I set up the computer with the exercise videos, but I just didn't want to. So this morning I though, I reeeeally have to do this. My weight is up, and I just can't let it continue to climb. But my knees do hurt. So I did the seated workout - cardio, core, and resistance. Richard will wait for another day.
I also went to Aldi's today for bread, milk, and a few other things. Last night I was so-o-o craving junk food, but thank goodness was too lazy to go to the corner convenience store! Then this morning I breakfasted on the muffins my DD had made - steel-cut oat flour (she bought the steel cut oats, then made her own flour), flax, apples, and walnuts, so they were very healthy and nutritious. So when I passed all the snacks, while I DID pause and consider chips and cookies and such - I PASSED them! It's ALWAYS best to eat before you shop, and I know the more I eat really healthy stuff, the less I crave.

emoticon We won't look! You can't see it , but in the background is a fully stocked cabana, and no jelly fish lurk around our Island.

Wow! Yes they will be glad to see you guys. I can't imagine that many books except in a Library!
I have 2.5 shelves of books on a small bookshelf. I've given some to Goodwill, the laundry room and like you, the ones not fit to share...go in the trash. I still buy some from Goodwill on occasion or Amazon.com but limit myself on hardbacks. Some are just not the same in Kindle edition and not easy to use. I'm reading that Sentinel book you recommended right now. I'd read one like it recently and then saw part of a documentary on that prison and the escape of over 100 men. I googled some info after that. Very interesting...and very sad.

I forgot to weigh in yesterday so will do so today. I was up again due to fluid retention and carelessness. I changed my stats yesterday to reflect that. emoticon I'll pull my head out of the sand today.

I got my order from Woman Within yesterday. I love the tank tops. They are cool and comfortable...
I asked the Lord to help me get my laundry done today. It's my most dreaded chore. I wouldn't mind at all if I had a washer/dryer in the apartment. But I don't so I need to do my work with a good attitude and gratitude...that I can still do it.

Wishing you all a blessed day...I'll be having one at my place as well emoticon

Oh, how wonderful! I've got my Bermuda shorts on - please don't look at my legs! They sure picked a beautiful island for us too - at least they did that right!

Wade and I went through the last of my paper books yesterday. I scaled it down to a milk crate and a wee bit more. I also kept just a few audio books. The used books store we are bringing them to should be very happy! They opened not that long ago, so these should help them quite a bit, there are about five full boxes of books. I did throw away six or seven books that are steamy and ones I wouldn't share with anyone. I wish there were a way to donate Kindle books.

Not much else happening in my day. Don't forget to weigh in!

Love ya

God bless, Kim

It's been so long since I've visited with him I've forgotten what all I have...I did go to my gym today and that needs a good dusting too. I got on the recumbent bike for a few minutes and did 15 pulls on the cardio glide. I'll have to work my way back up to my 50. I'm a weak one currently emoticon

What a great picture, Richard standing there with a pile of dust on his head! "Just give us a little shake there, Richard - that's it - gotta get rid of that dust!" Heeheehee!

I wonder where they would take the busload of us?!? I hope it's a Caribbean Island, I need someplace warm! We'll have to remember our Bermuda shorts and black socks!!!

Time to pay some mid-month bills! Love y'all.

Thanks for the giggles Shel! We'd have a good time! Thanks for the mention of Richard as well. I am at the drawing board/starting gate today and boy am I dragging behind!

I'm making notes today for my "schedule" and plan to implement it. I'll check out my gym today or this weekend. I need to get with the program. When I'm dusting at home, I'll shake Richard off and see what he's up to.

Bren, I sure wouldn't want to get on a trampoline either!

That picture is a hoot - but hey, don't worry, I'll be with you all, and I'm fluent in Spanish!

I did a little exercise on Tues, then nothing Wed. or yesterday. But today I started with Richard, breaking the video up to do 10 or so minutes at a time with like a 20 minute rest between, till I build up my endurance. I DON'T want my weight going up any more! emoticon

Kim, I stopped at Wal-Mart for some T-shirts this morning and got some more tuna...my new vice, along with ice? I got some in a couple of new flavors...ranch and lemon pepper, and found salmon pouches as well so I'm a happy camper! I like the convenience, flavors and built in portion control. I'm having fun with it and eating more salads as a result. Yummo emoticon

I'm weaning me off of sugar free pudding and those Fiber One snack bars at the moment. The only time I eat just one...is if it's the last one. emoticon

To help save the economy, the Government will announce
next month that the Immigration Department will start deporting
seniors (instead of illegals) in order to lower Social Security
and Medicare costs.
Older people are easier to catch and will not remember
how to get back home.
I started to cry when I thought of you.
Then it dawned on me ... oh, shoot ...
I'll see you on the bus!

I have a constant roaring in my ear Kim. I'm almost fully deaf on the right side so am not sure what it's up too. My fan at night helps mask some of the racket and I try to tune it out otherwise.

A friend sent me a couple of cutes giggles this morning. I don't know how to snag and repost them. I tried here and it didn't work. It's a busload of seniors, headed out of town...it was alluding to the notion of snagging and deporting seniors instead of illegals, as they are easier to catch, and how it would cut down on medical costs etc. I'll try to find it elsewhere. The other was a blonde joke.

I had 37 verified letters to process and I was shaking and aching before I finished. I got them mailed....and that was my heavy task for the day. I got some cleaning done at home before work and vacuumed...yippee! I didn't get far on my to do list while off but boy did I need the rest I got. I'd been feeling really ragged.

I feel for you....the allergy stuff whacked me in January and I'm having a reprieve for the moment and am very thankful. Our maintenance guy is having a lot of trouble, since he has to be out all day. I love the trees, grass and flowers but yep...the pollen is a problem.

Have a good day and take good care of yourselves! emoticon

We are getting nice and warm too. I'd get to enjoy it if there wasn't so much pollen out there.

I started using my nebulizer again and that has helped. I'll use it until the meds run out and then see if I can get saline water to use with it after that to keep my sinuses cleaned out. I started taking Lipo-flavonoid for my tinnitus. It may or may not help, but I won't know unless I try. It probably won't take it away, but if it quiets it some, that would be good.

Well, y'all have a great day.

God bless, Kim

Me too. Thanks for the response and helping me understand a bit better... I grew up the same way and never heard the resurrection message that I remember, until I was grown and on my own. I remember our neighbors, inviting us to their house to watch Billy Graham and how that was an influence on me. My brother and I went to church on occasion , mostly alone, to a Baptist church up the road from our house in the country. We were baptized in the river, but didn't understand the meaning behind it. I had very little Christian influence in my life growing up. Many kids today have even less.

I got a nice nap, so am ready to work for about an hour, cleaning and sorting. I need to vacuum too. Laundry got put off...again.

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

No, Bren, I didn't share all the particulars on what Wade and I read about it. We've read about Ishtar and who she was, but not the Babylonian (and several other nations) worship that went with her. What is done today is very much like what was done way back then, it's amazing. I just don't understand why it needs to be done at all, especially by those who call themselves Christians. It is the worship of a goddess of fertility. The egg and the bunny both represent fertility. The name of the holiday comes from the goddess. Sigh! It's hard to see because this is what we grew up with. Hey, I looked for my basket on the hearth just like so many other little kids in my day did. I searched for the eggs I colored the night before - and I could have cared less that Jesus rose from the dead - just give me my candy! Just like satan wanted it to be. Praise the Lord I found my way, through my family, to a Church that preached the truth and I found Jesus. There are way too many out there in the world who have never found Him, who will never look for Him, but they know the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus. That is what makes me sad.

Love y'all so very much

God bless, Kim

Thanks Missy. I'm really trying to "not fret", over this. I'll talk to him when I go in. My co-worker uses him as well. She does have insurance with her husband's work and Medicare...so can go somewhere I'm sure. I'll check with the Walk-In clinic I go to and ask about their policy on scrip re-fills.

I ordered some bike shorts and tank tops today, to use as pajamas. I can step outside to feed the cats in them without embarrassing myself.

I had a really rough night last night and spent two hours in the recliner as it was too painful to lay down. My plans for these off days fell through for the most part, as I was too weary and worn to accomplish much. I haven't been out except to check mail and feed the cats...tho I did get trash out yesterday and walked instead of driving it down. First time in about two months. I only had to stop twice... emoticon

I need to get on track too with my exercise, Shel....I've been thinking about my GYM and my rebounder here. I know I could use my equipment at the gym, but am leery of the trampoline. I need to know I won't jar anything loose, ya know.

Did I miss something in the Easter post Kim? I must have. I know many churches call it Resurrection Sunday, as it is and that's why we celebrate.....but they still have the egg hunts etc. for the kids, usually the Saturday prior.

My pastor posted a note on FB to say "Merry Christmas" to those he wouldn't see again until then. I'd told y'all about the hypocrite quote...how many say they won't go to church because it's full of them. He said "I know for a fact OUR church is not full of hypocrites! There are still empty seats up here."

I'm off to get some work done...a little is better than none. I just would love to be able to do all I need and want to...and pray I can, very soon! Be blessed my friends!


In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Hey everyone. It's good to see Missy and Shel both back again.

After reading what Wade and I did about the origins of "Easter" this past weekend, hearing the Resurrection called that makes me cringe. I've known that the name "Easter" relates to Ishtar but knowing more of the traditions of this goddess worship and how closely they mirror what people do on Easter - makes me really sad - especially since it's Churches participating!

Not much else going on with me. Hope y'all have a great evening.

God bless, Kim

The Jewish woman ended up not coming with me to church with me, due to the question of the ambient temp. However, the whole family went - DSIL with "his" 3 (DD loves em like her own to a church of his choosing, and DD and my 2 "blood" grands came with me to mine. Then yesterday I took the lady to the bank and store, and was ready to wash my hands of her. Let's call it an adventure - sowing some acts of kindness for Love's sake.

I have not done much exercise the past week, but today I hope to start a new streak. I did a 12 minute cardio routine, then the resistance band routine. Shel

Hey Missy! Ouch indeed. I have one too and it hurts in sympathy. Praying for this to heal quickly, along with the surgical issues pain. I'd be crying all the time. On the weigh in...I'm up .4...and need to focus...now. I'm mad at me. I'll get a noodling and move on.

Those scary times are far and few between and we can be thankful! There is so much evil in the world and I am thankful to be under God's care in all circumstances. I know God took care of me even when I was drifting off course.

I got a letter yesterday, from my Dr.'s office. He has joined the MDVIP network, cutting his practice to 600 patients and there is a $1650 annual fee to join....or I lose my Dr. It starts the end of June, so my visit the 1st of June will perhaps be my last. This move will cull a lot of folks like me, self pay, once a year visits for meds scrips and lab work, no insurance. I will be praying...a lot and working on getting as fit as I can get....I really love this gentle, caring Dr. and sure hate to lose him emoticon My heart is sad.

I love you ladies....and you're all in my prayers as we enter this new and wonderful day. Take care of yourselves...I'll do the same at my spot.


In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Smart move with the guy and the tire iron! Perhaps he was snorting powdered donuts!!! One can only hope!

I was house sitting for some friends on New Years Eve years ago. They lived on this canal and there was no one around but me and her dog and her puppies. He dog was a nut - but this night she sat on the couch and stared at me because she knew I was scared. A guy came to the house and knocked on the door - I jumped out of my skin. I went to the door and so did the dog. The guy was drunk - the door stayed locked. He wanted to call for a taxi. No one was around there - where did he come from? There were no parties anywhere near this house? He finally left when he heard the dog barking. I went back to the couch and hugged the dog, thanking her for taking care of me. She had never acted like that before and I don't think since then. I never baby sat at night over there again either! I think that was the most scared I can remember being. Well, I did get scared when some guy at the Holiday Inn where I was working as a desk clerk promised to come and get me after my shift was over, but then I had folks to help me avoid him. I didn't know the Lord then like I do now. That was over 30 years ago too - phew - time flies.

Well, my headache is telling me it's time to go and lie down for a bit. TTYL. Love ya

Check out this one: An Amish Wedding for $.99 It's a 3-in-one by three very popular authors. And A Breed Apart by Ronie Kendig is also a 3-in-one series about 3 military dogs and their masters which are really good. They are full length novels. It's on sale for $1.99.

I'll look for her. Thanks! I know what you mean...I have found myself rolling my eyes at some of the writing, but then I've done that with secular books too. Just this week, I'd started 3-4 new ones and erased them at the first foul language. I don't want that in my head and as I've told my brother so many times..."one can say all they ever need to say without ever using those words." Our maintenance man cusses a lot and I hate it.

I rested most of the day yesterday so am getting some work done here at home. I'm sorry your time at the in-laws was less than the best.

I told a tenant the other day that it's a good thing I enjoy my company and get along with me, since most of my time is spent by myself. He'd expressed concern at my being at the office alone, for so long and the possibility of "danger". I am never truly alone because of the Holy Spirit's presence. Only twice in the 16 years I've been there, have I felt uncomfortable in the presence of someone. One had white powder under his nose, wanted to borrow a tire iron, had a flat and had pulled into our carport to change it. I called my boss that day. The guy was pulling out as he got there and the guy left a bag of trash in our carport. I did not let him use my tire iron either!

I'm doing my intervals again and it's time for another. Be blessed, strengthened and at peace...Love y'all!

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

You're right, Bren. Free Christian fiction usually tends towards the independent authors and the writing isn't always that good. Keep your eyes peeled for Chautona Havig. She offers all her novels and series episodes for free, and she is very good. You can read every thing by her and never pay a cent if you are on your toes because it's usually free for only one day. Being on Christian Bookworms is helpful because I have multiple eyes keeping watch. Oh, and if you do miss an episode in one of her serials (like Past Forward and now Hearthland) she also puts the episodes into volumes and offers those for free to.

Wade and I had dinner with his brother's family. I wish it was as good as other times with them. O well.

I hope y'all had a great Resurrection day.

God bless, Kim

I just snagged the book you had recommended Kim, and it went to my new Kindle...hooya. I'd tried to make it the default a couple of weeks or so ago and it would still send them to the original and then I'd have to transfer. Yippee. Pickings are rather slim for Christian books. I've read quite a few lately, and they are worth the search.

I'm working in short snippets...but getting some things done. emoticon

Excellent notes and scriptures Kim...and a blessed and happy Easter Sunday to you all.

I had a "make contact" e-mail from David. His phone is broken after a drop on concrete so he can't call right now. He'd posted a picture of himself and the latest grandchild, Lila May, on FB and I was shocked at how much he's aged since I saw him at Mom's funeral two years ago. He was in the hospital in June when I was, last year and that's when the lung mass was found, once the pneumonia was cleared up. I'm so thankful God captured his heart, mended our past and gave us an opportunity to say goodbye with love and caring...he was and is a blessing to me.

I have my to do list ready and will be using my timer to get things restored to order here at home the next few days. I have been so tired the past few days to the point of tears almost, and have actually whined more than once when the phone would ring. I've had a year's quota of Ibuprophen in the past five weeks and am so ready to have full strength and mobility again! I know it's coming.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all and I thank God for you daily. Be blessed best where needed most in this day...and the new week ahead.
Love and hugs~

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Wow, Shel. What a great opportunity! I don't know how I would be able to live with needing my environment to be 60 degrees or lower - yikes! God knows what we can bear!

I have a niece and nephew-in-law who are living like Hassidic Messianic Jews but they aren't Jewish. They are returning to the law, which is totally anti-biblical. The Bible says that if you return to the law then you discount grace. Gal_5:4 You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. Galatians and Hebrews are both filled with verses that tell us that we are no longer under the law but under grace, but they are wanting to live under the law, the Talmud too and not under grace. Only the moral law is binding to us, not the ceremonial law of the Jews. Jesus reiterated 9 of the 10 commandments in the New Testament. The only one He didn't was Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy. The Sabbath Day was a day for the Jews only because it was a symbol to the other nations that the Jews belonged to God. We worship God on the first day of the week because:
Why we worship on the first day of the week

Barnes – note from Mt. 28:2 concerning why Christians worship on the Lord's Day.
(3.) He arose upon the first day of the week; on the first day of the first week God commanded the light to shine out of darkness; on this day therefore did he who was to be the Light of the world, shine out of the darkness of the grave; and the seventh-day sabbath being buried with Christ, it arose again in the first-day sabbath, called the Lord's day (Rev_1:10), and no other day of the week is from henceforward mentioned in all the New Testament than this, and this often, as the day which Christians religiously observed in solemn assemblies, to the honour of Christ, Joh_20:19, Joh_20:26; Act_20:7; 1Co_16:2. If the deliverance of Israel out of the land of the north superseded the remembrance of that out of Egypt (Jer_23:7, Jer_23:8), much more doth our redemption by Christ eclipse the glory of God's former works. The sabbath was instituted in remembrance of the perfecting of the work of creation, Gen_2:1. Man by his revolt made a breach upon that perfect work, which was never perfectly repaired till Christ arose from the dead, and the heavens and the earth were again finished, and the disordered hosts of them modelled anew, and the day on which this was done was justly blessed and sanctified, and the seventh day from that. He who on that day arose from the dead, is the same by whom, and for whom, all things were at first created, and now anew created.

I thought that was a good one to share since tomorrow we celebrate the Resurrection of our Savior! as well as explaining why we celebrate our worship on a different day than the Jews.

I've had a couple of really good conversations today, one with Mom and one with Barbi. Barbi is doing well by the way. I hope that y'all have a really blessed time tomorrow celebrating the Resurrection. I love y'all.

God bless, Kim

Glad to see you Shel!

Wow, that milk run did have a blessed turn. That poor lady! That brings to mind, the many times when I am complaining about "my" conditions and I quickly remember there are multitudes who suffer much more than I do. That was a great opportunity to spread some light for Jesus.

Oh no! You lost some benefits somewhere when you most need them? That's a big bite Shel.
May doors be opened and needs met........as God provides for His own.

It should be a fairly slow day here today so I'll put some energy into cleaning the office in preparation for next week. I have some posting and paperwork to tend to and one lock to get off in a bit. It's actually chilly today so I don't need the Ac on. Makes it much quieter in here emoticon

Hey, folks, sorry to have been MIA. I think the sudden loss of benefits threw me for a bit of a loop, but I'm recovering. I was encouraged by Levi, too.

Anyway, had a divine appointment the other day - we'd run out of milk, even for coffee, and so I had to go to the store. I got there just before it opened and there was another woman waiting outside, and we struck up a conversation which built into an interesting friendship. She is the daughter of a Hassidic rabbi - Hassidim are the ultra orthodox but also very spiritual - reminds me of a Jewish version of charismatic/Pentecostal Christians. But she has a very good friend who's born-again, and she's full of questions and has already said she believes Jesus is the Messiah, though His being the Son of God is still a doubt. But she wants to come to church with me. Main problem is she has a rare disorder whereby she "bleeds" if she gets too warm, in temps in excess of a mere 60 degrees. I can't guarantee her a chilly church! Her vision is very poor from cataracts ( she's about 70, FYI) but she does remember some New Testament scriptures that impressed her.
My weight crept back up due to slacking off on activity. But I noticed when I did the bridges in bed this morning I could raise my behind more! Shel

Oh my! What will they think of next? Buttons for re-orders? I ordered more coffee when I got new testing strips recently. I've been using my 4 cup coffeemaker instead of the Keurig, but if I want a cup at night (or tea) I use it.

I bought half-caf coffee recently to try once again to cut down on my caffeine. It hasn't been opened yet emoticon One goal at a time and baby steps? Are those Zone perfect bars good? I've tried a few different ones and some are just so grainy or gooey that I still haven't eaten them all...the Quest bars (20 G protein, 17 G fiber, net 4 G carbs) and Life Choice (21 G protein, 1 G fiber and 14G carb) I don't have the nuts or chocolate problem you have but have the sugar issue to watch. So many are covered in chocolate to perhaps disguise the taste? emoticon

The sky did clear some but we had hard winds all day. I did venture out at lunch to pick up a few items for the office and a few for me...asparagus, ice and tomatoes...lovely! Mostly so I wouldn't have to do it on my way in today.

Thursday/Friday I had pre-dinner glucose at 120 and 100 respectively ...hooya! I'm still eating too many carbs PM and have high FBS as a result but this morning was 256 as opposed to 312 so it's a work in progress. My overall calories have been coming down and I'm happy with that.

Do you have WD-40? The front door is squeaking here. It's feeling like Camp Runaway where everyone did but us emoticon I'm so glad you're hanging out with me. Us four are like the four horseless headsmen...shhh....all leaders and no groupies. Should we go fishing?

I'm off to get ready for work so I'll see you at the office. Have a blessed day...and Easter Sunday ladies.
Love and prayers...for all here.

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

It's windy here today too. The mail man just brought me my box of subscribe and save stuff from Amazon. I'd ordered our decaf coffee - Wade has been waiting for that and me too. I've been drinking my cappuccino again until we got more. Amazon is going to start this new thing with buttons that you put in your house with the product that you need on it. When you run low you just press the button to order - it's somehow blue tooth connected to the wi-fi in your house or your phone. I told Wade we need one near our coffee maker! One of the ladies on The Five on Fox News said that her kids would be pushing the buttons all the time! Who wants buttons with products all over their house!? I guess you could hide them in your laundry room and in the cabinets. I ordered some Zone Perfect bars too. They have more protein in them than the other bars we have. They still have quite a few carbs, but I couldn't fine any protein bars without almonds, chocolate or strawberries that had less carbs or more protein. Sigh!

I read an article yesterday about what qualifies by state as "middle income"...and I'm not there yet. I'm not even at median range but I am happy to have what I do! No breaks for me either, as a single, no dependents...which is a good thing since they take a lot to support! I can't claim my 3-7 kitties emoticon

I've had to pay in the last two years and will until I retire I suppose. Oh well...it is what it is. When I lived in Alabama, we paid state tax and sales tax on groceries. Neither applies here and I'm glad. Federal eats my lunch and half my dinner.

We have cooler temps today but much wind and a dust storm blew through this morning. We have some clearing now and that's good.

I'm sure looking forward to my four days off coming up. Yippee yahooty! I'll get lots of rest, make a dent in my to do list....and just hang out with Jesus!

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Well, the taxes are done for this year. We don't owe as much federal this year as we did last year - yippee. We ended up paying for the Turbo-tax delux - don't know if that saved us some or not, but we are paying at least half of what we paid last year! At least the state is giving us a refund, although not enough for us to break even - sigh. For people without children it costs more at tax time. I wonder if we can count Mom as a dependent next year? I doubt it, she will be taking care of herself! LOL! Where are all those breaks for the middle class I keep hearing about???

That's the excitement going on in my quiet life. I hope yours is quiet too. Love y'all.

God bless, Kim

I'm feeling it Kim emoticon ....your concern as well as the stress. I do pace myself most days to avoid strain, I just need to stop bouncing into walls and laundry tubs. Thanks my friend!!
I don't think I'm cracked or fractured anywhere, it's just having to use it every day keeps it from healing as quickly as I'd like. I'll try to be more careful. I plan to do my credit card payments in batches of maybe 10 at a time instead of a full marathon.

I'm off to clean the kitchen, pack my lunch and get ready for work....have a blessed day ladies...I will as well emoticon

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

I'm telling you, Bren! Your heart doesn't need the stress of all this pain, sweetie-greens. I'm really worried that it has lasted this long - something is wrong. You gotta do what you gotta do, but the more you stress with the pain, the worse it's going to be on your heart. I need you too much - so this is totally selfish on my part!!! Of course, I hate going to the doctor too, but that much pain for this long....

Lots of beautiful weather for the past couple of days - ahhhh! I even took off my thermal shirt! gasp!

The little girl next door (being raised by grandma and grandpa) is in kindergarten this year. They are doing the magazine thing, so I bought a couple of magazines so she could get a Sponge-Bob T-shirt. I got a crossword puzzle one and a Taste of Home one. I'm a sucker for a cute little face! What can I say!

Well, not much else going on right now. You are all in my prayers. Love ya

God bless, Kim

I've been on an extended whinefest and am not done yet. I hit the wall, literally, at work Monday...on the bad side...and was in much pain the rest of the day and still am. emoticon I have a lot of work coming up with it being the first of the month so need to make things as easy as I can for myself....and pray a lot emoticon
I'm scheduled to see my Dr. in two months. ...so hope this issue is not still keeping me in trouble.

Then my coffeepot quit working, but I had an old one in the closet and got it out. I do of course, have my baby Kuerig I could use for a one cup job.

I need to get my check in the bank and pick up meds today so will make a Wal-Mart run later.
Yesterday was a rest day and I needed it. Could use more actually but will aim to get the essentials done today.

Praying for strength, comfort and healing....for all in need today.

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Missy, maybe it's time to see another doctor. This doctor isn't taking care of your pain and that isn't acceptable. No doctor should allow their patient to suffer like this. I'm praying for you my friend!

My weight is up just a wee bit: 215.6.

Not much else going on though, so I will let y'all get back to your resting. Love ya.

God bless, Kim

Yes Missy! We have hope in knowing we are never alone in our struggles. God is aware of each one of us and nothing escapes His attention. I have said before, I will cling to Him like a barnacle on a ship...and will praise Him, no matter what.

Praying for you and others here.......for comfort, provision, protection and peace....and healing. God knows our names, hearts and needs today.

Love and hugs~ Bren

I am having a very hard time, but I KNOW Jesus loves more than I could ever imagine! It is HE who gets me through each day! I don't understand it all, but I do know that His faithfullness reaches to the skies, and I am so thankful for his grace and mercy.
I'm grasping onto him, and I will never let go!!!!

Please keep me in your prayers

hugs and prayers

Thanks much Kim!.....

I'd posted earlier but went to check the weather before I hit post message and lost it. Oh well...it was 80 BTW at 1:00. It's still really windy and I'm so glad I got my property check done yesterday so I can stay in today.

I did some cleaning and shopping before work and it really wore me out! I took a nap for an hour before coming in and I needed it. I'd gotten up at 4:30 so it just ran me down a bit.

I got some arthritis strength pain reliever and hope that helps. I did rest very well last night so felt better when I got up and that's a good sign emoticon I really look forward to having strength and energy again. Some things need to be done whether I "feel" like it or not emoticon

Kim, I agree...there is just too much "world" instead of the WORD....and pleasing of the flesh going on in so many churches today. Sin is excused...so often, as you said...to fill the pews and collection plate. God still hates sin and will never change His mind about it.

Next week (6-8 plus Easter Sunday) I will be off for a 4 day run and I really look forward to it. That should help with recovery time and good rest. Yippee yahooty!

I picked up some tuna and chicken breast to use in my salads the next week. I'm aiming to stop the PM noshing and stay at or below my calorie goal. I will put myself on "project status" as Dr. Phil would say.

Have a blessed new week ahead ladies and take good care of yourselves. I'll do the same at my place. emoticon

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

I'm so sorry that you guys are in such pain! I'm praying for y'all.

My life was in turmoil for quite a few years, but I know that, for me, it was because I wasn't walking in obedience to the Lord. I am so glad that I came out on the other side in a right relationship with Him and now, even when things are hard, I don't even care, nothing can be as bad as that ever again - and I know what to do to stay close to Him.

Lately I just keep thinking about the two roads - two distinct and different roads. The road to heaven is narrow and there are few who find it. God set the rules, the commandments for those who are walking on that road and we find those in His Word. You can't walk on His road and the road to hell at the same time. You can't walk in obedience to God and obedience to satan at the same time. You are either on the road to heaven or the road to hell, there is no middle road. We are so close to the end and if Jesus comes there aren't any second chances for those who know the truth and haven't accepted it. And here we are getting ready to celebrate the Resurrection of our Savior and I keep seeing Churches having Easter Egg hunts. I call them Ishtar Egg hunts because that is who should be worshiped with those kinds of celebrations. Eggs and bunnies, symbols of fertility - Ishtar, the goddess of fertility. It takes away from what the Churches should be putting their emphasis on - just another compromise to fill the pews, to pay the bills. Push Jesus off to the side again. I can hear satan tittering in the background as the children gather eggs on the Churches' lawn on Resurrection morning. We can make excuses for them all we want, but they don't belong in the Church, and in my opinion, in a Christian's world. What on earth do they have to do with Jesus rising from the grave, conquering death and sin so that we can be free from sin and have eternal life? Sorry for the soap box moments. I am just so afraid that people I know aren't going to make it if Jesus comes soon.
Php 2:12-13 So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.

Y'all have an awesome weekend. Love you so much.

God bless, Kim

Thanks for prayers Missy...Knowing others pray for me is such a comfort...and when praying for myself, I ask for healing for those many who suffer even more than I do.
I remember when you had your last surgery and how much pain you were in, and it never did really go away. Your feet have been in the fire for a very long time. I pray for God's comfort, peace and power in all our lives...His strength will keep us and refill us when our own is gone.

I slept better last night. I was in bed again at 7:30 and managed to stay there until 6:00. I woke up at 4:30 but wasn't quite ready for the day. I had 5 hungry pretties waiting for breakfast. I so love those cats. Well....I love them all...everywhere. emoticon

My brother is off the radar again...no contact number etc. He doesn't call to check in. I talked to him in February, when Jimmy died. That was the 15th. That number is no longer valid and he isn't posting on FB. He remains in my prayers always.

I'm aiming to clean some before work. It's been so long since I was able to get everything as orderly as I like and it bothers me. Even if I'm the only one tooling around in here...I like things neat.

Hope you all have a good weekend......you're in my thoughts and prayers daily and I am so glad you're still here, hanging out. I love you ladies and thank God for you...

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

I'm hanging at about a 3 on the scale of 1-5 emoticon I had a bad night again and was really struggling for about an hour after I got up. Pain was a screaming 5 emoticon I had my arm twisted under me at an odd angle and it really knocked me silly. The ibuprofen doesn't really knock the pain but to get anything else I'd have to see the Dr. and I'm not "ready"...I was better once I got unkinked and to the office. I was so tired last night I was in bed at 7:30...and awake at 2:30 emoticon

Oh I know what you mean! My heart lurches at the evil every day. I have a hard time watching the news, as my face is not happy and I remember Mama saying "your face is gonna freeze like that". Every single day there is such horrendous evil being wrought but we know that God is fully aware of it all and it's foretold in His word so tho I hate it...I know nothing escapes His notice and we are in His care....He is our light in the darkest pits.

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Phew, you had me worried! Praise the Lord!

Doing alright today. Still stuffed up, and just a wee bit dizzy at times, but my ears are also still clogged. My allergies are really bad right now - such is life!

Boy, the news is right out of Revelation! It's an exciting time to be alive. Jesus could return today, or in 200 years from now - but with what is happening and the hatred that is being spewed towards Israel from everywhere, it's hard to believe that Jesus' return could be that far off. Not a time to be playing games.

I need to get to my bills. Will talk to y'all later. Love ya.

God bless, Kim

I'm here!...and I'm hon-gree emoticon I'm making sure I have protein handy...today's choice is a string cheese and a Fiber One Bar.

I'm having an easier time behaving when at work, so need to shore up my resolve when I leave here.

We had a cold front move thru and strong winds...but tomorrow it's supposed to be around 80. we got our new AC unit at last but it's small and not very effective. Today I need heat, not air emoticon It's pretty and sunny...just too windy to be tooling around outside.

Have a good afternoon all...I'm looking forward to 5 today...I didn't get my 8 hours last night. emoticon

The pastries I've encountered in Peru aren't as light and moist as you find here, and the frostings are a bit overbearing; the ice creams aren't nearly as good either. That's why it's easier for me to lose weight there! But of course, people don't eat 'em that often ANYway, so they like 'em. My mother-in-law makes "Pan Dulce", sweet bread - from a recipe she got from when she cooked for the gringo missionaries years ago. She'd make a round pan and Levi would sell it for her. We used the same basic dough for pizza as well - less sweet of course (the sweet wasn't so much in the dough of the sweetbread as in the sugar she sprinkled over the rolled out dough.)

Oh yay! a dizzy free day is a major blessing!
...You're right Kim. I read thru the little booklet yesterday, the meal plan etc. I waited until today to start, to carry me thru Sunday. I got the D box for diabetics. Sharon started hers yesterday.
Adding the salads and veggy snacks will round things out and in place of their shakes, I'll use my Glucerna that I need to use up anyway.


I'd addressed/stamped envelopes Monday (300) and was in so much pain yesterday. I asked Jesus to help me get my work done...changing sheets, doing laundry, light shopping, and this morning...getting the trash out. It was hard labor to me.
I got the arm irritated and boy, I was in dire straights. I'm better today....but will still need to pace myself and take care of me emoticon Saturday will be a month since my fall. The bruise on my hip has faded away...yippee! I will be hootin' and hollerin' when I can stretch this arm up again in praise!

Be blessed today ladies, and as I pray for God's healing touch and strength for each task today...we are all on the list. emoticon


In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Awesome, Bren. Keep us posted on how it is working for you! I think the Nutrisystem is more on how foods work together to up your metabolism and burn fat that way rather than counting calories. the Mamas program works that way too. I need to get back into that book!

Hope y'all are doing better today. I haven't gotten dizzy today - woohoo! Praise the Lord for that. Thank you for your prayers.

I'll keep y'all in my prayers as well. Love ya

Praying for you Missy...I can't even imaging all you've been through...and yes, crying would provide some release so maybe you should. When I have the opportunity, I try to make it a good one. Gentle hugs~

You too Kim! Having dealt with extreme dizziness with the Meniere's, I sure empathize with you. Have you seen an ENT? I remember you having some issues with this not that long ago, sometime last year? Praying this passes quickly along with the sinus problems etc.

That is a pretty cake Levi had...are their pastries kin to the Mexican ones I find at my store? They aren't super sweet but are fairly tasty. I've had the pig shaped gingerbread type soft cookies...yum and empanadas...pineapple and pumpkin. It was a couple of years ago or more when I had those. Woohoo! Richard! I hope to dust him off soon at my place.

Sharon and I bought the 5 day starter kit of Nutrisystem at Wal-Mart yesterday. I'm starting on mine today. I was very surprised at the calorie content of most of the items (on the high side) and my first though almost, is what kind of lower cost substitutes can I find on the shelves and freezers. emoticon I joked with Sharon about keeping the box as a visual reminder and refilling it with things off the shelf and in my house.

We got to play with our kits and talk a lot and entertaining ourselves since the boss didn't come in until 4 PM. I had a list of things to do during slow times and we got on that.

I need to strip my bed and get laundry in .......have a blessed day ladies.
Love and hugs~


In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

It sure looks pretty! Happy birthday to Levi!

Wow, I have been really dizzy the last couple of days. Yesterday when I would get up the dizziness would just not go away. I took my BP and it was 91/52 which is in my normal range. Usually I don't get dizzy until it goes into the 80's, but the bottom number is on the low side. My pulse was in the 50's, but that is normal for me too. Today I gotten dizzy again while sitting down. I had just gotten up to get my lunch and got dizzy then too, so after I sat down I took my BP again and it was 101/65 - good. My pulse was 49, lower than I've ever seen it for me, especially after I have just been up and around. My ears have been clogged from my sinuses as well, so I have no idea what is really causing all of this dizziness. I don't think it's dehydration because my urine looks fine. My doctor always asks me if I am getting dizzy because of my Milroy's disease and the diruetic I am taking. I'm taking my decongestants, so let's pray that it's my ears and the decongestants work soon and I don't have to go to the doctor over this! Thanks ladies!

Yesterday Wade and I did a clean out of some of our kitchen stuff. We bought that beautiful cabinet from Sam's and had put some pantry stuff in it. So he cleaned out the pots and pans cabinet and the cabinet where we keep the bowls and the rubbermaid type stuff. We put lids on all of the containers we wanted to keep and stacked those in the cabinet so we wouldn't have lids everywhere and no bowls to go with them! We got rid of Teflon pans that had scratches in them and pulled out the new pans that have been sitting in the box for the past three years because we had no where to put them! We also cleaned out my coffee mug cabinet and got rid of quite a few mugs. If all my mugs were clean at one time I can't fit them all in the cabinet - that tells me I have too many mugs! If you listen very carefully you can hear the kitchen breathing more easily after all of that cleaning out!!! LOL!

Well, I am going to let y'all get back to your important stuff. Be well, Love ya

God bless, Kim

Yesterday I did a little Richard Simmons plus the strength exercises my PT gave me. Today haven't done anything of the sort yet. Went to my friend's house for a semi-monthly Scrabble game, bringing my potty "booster seat" to make sure I didn't have any trouble "dismounting." Gotta watch those hip restrictions! I missed the last couple of games, but we've planned the next 3 months.
Oh, the 19th was Levi's birthday, and bless his niece Tutty, she posted some pix on Facebook for me! Here he is with his little Mom (and frosting on his face from the traditional mash-your-face-in-the-cake they do)


One reason I lose weight is, their pastries and such aren't as good as the ones here, so they're not as much of a temptation!

PT is definitely "torture"! I was supposed to take pain meds before I went for mine so they could push me.

Let Missy know she's in my prayers, Bren. Y'all are!

God bless, Kim

I always ache more after PT - I joke with the therapist that he's a slave driver for what he puts me through. The thing is, while I'm DOING it, it doesn't HURT, though I feel the effort. Then later - OWEEE! Anyway, didn't exercise yesterday but went about - DD and I went to my school cuz one of my bonus grandkids was in the assembly, and we arrived in time to see MY class of kiddies going up. The teacher I work with was very glad to see me, and I got many comments on how well I seemed to be walking, and that I lost weight (which isn't so, but maybe I got some muscle tone!) I still plan to take the full 12 weeks recommended before returning to work. Glad I'll be getting some SS from my late DH.

That's good Kim! Oh I slouch something awful. I joke about sitting on my neck bones here in this chair. I keep sliding down. I do in my recliner too.

It's raining again. We had it pretty much all day yesterday so I had James unlock some units for me to rent...so I didn't have to run in and out. It's still chilly too. I look forward to gown time when I get home!

I woke up coughing this morning so I guess it was allergies? I need to remember to bring a jacket tomorrow to keep here for days like this. I had some heat on earlier, but being in Zach's office, it doesn't really get in here.

I read about the 49 YO news lady that died with an aneurism...so sad! And scary! Some of the posts/condolences were heartbreaking and very touching.

I've had one rental and a few calls today, otherwise it's been wonderfully peaceful, restful and quiet! I did have a long conversation with a friend who used to rent here...she hadn't heard from me in awhile and was concerned. Sweet lady! I told her I'd try to avoid dropping off the radar again. I've been so listless and in such pain that only necessities were getting done and SP is one! emoticon

Missy is having a tough time with recovery so let's keep her on the prayer list. Wishing you all a blessed day....love y'all! emoticon

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

The wedge works great. It is hard, but I think that is why it works so well. I put a towel around it because I don't have a case that is big enough. I think that gave it a bit of a cushion. I could sleep on either side and on my back just fine. I did slip down one time - at least I was slipped down that one time when I woke up. Every other time I woke up I was where I was supposed to be! LOL! I wasn't stuffed up when I woke up either - woohoo! My back was fine too. It does force you to keep your posture straight, which is something that I need to work on, my painful back feels better when I am slouched over - not good.

Beautiful day here. I went outside for a little bit to watch Wade trim our weeping cherries. He also cut down a tree that keeps coming up at the side of the car port. We need to find a way to kill the root. We set up our new cabinet in the kitchen and I put some of our pantry stuff in it this morning. We are trying to figure out what all we want to put in it. Each shelf will hold 30 pounds (that's only 30 cans). So I figured 20 cans and some boxes on each shelf, but now we are thinking of putting the cans somewhere else and just keeping dry goods in there - sigh! I put in what I could and left the rest for Wade!

Well, I'm going to finish with the rest of my mail and take my aching back to the sofa. Love ya

God bless, Kim

Testing: missing posts...
Ok, there we are. My "most recent posts" showed yours on the 19th Kim, yet when I came to the thread, it didn't show and mine from the 19th was missing. Glitches.

When I woke up I was dreaming of fried chicken and getting a "new" car, and writing a check on the wet hood and it was trying to rip. Weird dreams are exhausting emoticon

I'd picked up new fans for the office on the way to work as we are headed into Summer number three with the boss who has the only good AC in his office, that is turned off when he walks in....I took the first one out and a blade was broken off it. So I need to return it and I'll pull the exchange out before purchase to check it.

While there I picked up some Ballpark chicken burgers to try. They are SO good! I had one last night. I need to clear out more clutter in my fridge, I have asparagus, broccoli and cabbage in there I need to cook....and salad mix to eat.

I really was tired the past few nights and haven't wanted to do anything that requires thought and effort. I need to perk up and pay attention. emoticon

Bed wedge: I hope that helps Kim. I've been using two pillows since I hurt myself, as I can't sleep yet like I'm used too. Flat on my belly with right arm tucked under my pillow/head. I can't sleep on my back, due to dizziness and while I can on my side, finding an angle for the arm that allows rest with the minimum of pain is what I do now....as you sorta said...the joys of getting old-er! emoticon

Wishing you all a blessed weekend and speedy healing , strength , stability and balance in all areas. Love and hugs~

The only replacement parts I've needed have been in my mouth - woohoo! Let's hope it stays that way.

Still feeling yicky. Sore throat, stuffy, tired. Not a very bad headache today, just a twinge now and again - Praise the Lord! Wade got me some decongestants last night - the big box! I think that they are helping- Yeah! Lots of things budding out here right now, so we will just stay inside as much as I can.

I ordered a bed wedge yesterday. Wade has been talking about me getting one. I slide down off of my pillows during the night and end up flat, then I get all stuffy and my throat gets scratchy and I start coughing... it doesn't make for a good nights sleep. This wedge should keep me in an inclined position which should help with the allergies as well as the tummy and the back. It's just a 7.5" incline so I will probably keep the mattress inclined as well. Oh the joys of getting old!

Love y'all.

God bless, Kim

Hope you're feeling better soon Kim. With each season we have respiratory issues and pollen things to deal with. I still welcome spring and fall emoticon

Shel, I'm hoping I never need replacement parts but I'm glad they have them for those of you who do. June will be here in no time! That's a good report!

I wish I had someone handy to clean my ceiling fans before I turn them back on. If I could lift this arm, I'd be tempted to do it myself emoticon I'll wait until I can...and then take care of it. I long for retirement...but not the things that come with it...1/3 the income, moving etc.

I got up before 5, a normal schedule and I did sleep better last night. I had bad/weird dreams but I did sleep. Yesterday was a very slow and draggy day at the office with one rental and our sale. Sharon goes out for that and it's a blessing...due to my hearing problem.

We had 69 for a high and expect 77 today...I'll need another fan before it gets really warm...one for here and one for the office.

I'm off to clean a bit before work. Have a blessed and restful day, ladies..

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.
