Sorry I haven't been on much today. We got almost everything back in place. We just took our time. The floors came out beautiful. Just the right color to match everything in the rooms we did. Did get 2.27 miles in and lots of exercise with moving things. What a workout. Going to rest the rest of the night.

Today was a good day. I got some walking in, some stationary bike in. Then I watched golf all day, had healthy meals that are all logged in.

The pain management DR that I saw yesterday wants me to be on the stationary bike every day. He said it will help to keep my knee lubricated so it doesn't stiffen up. I had told him I get on it every other day & he said he wanted every day.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

I have to weigh every day due to my thyroid as my DR wants me to keep track of my weight. My normal weigh in is Sundays. This morning I am down to 175 which makes me feel good. I don't know what tomorrow will bring.

Today I got 50 bonus points for the team

Today was good day. I did a 5K this morning and also did 3 miles on the stationary bike. Watched football while on the stationary bike. Also did 1hr of snow shoveling.

For those that don't know I do a 5K every week on Spark People. It is one thing that I figure that is good for me.

Had a good weekend

It is still snowing here. We are in a winter weather advisory today & tomorrow. Will not be going out. Trying to do a rest day, not sure that will work. But then we have football on TV so I just might slow down & watch that.

DH is home from work today. Not feeling well. DGDs will be here later. I will help with their math and I am planning to show them how to make a simple angel ornament. It is suppose to be near 50 this weekend. That will be a change!

Ida, hope the pain subsides. I have been having trouble with my knee again. Was on it quite a bit lately. I thank God that most times it eases up after rest.

Have a great day, All! emoticon

Today was a interesting day. Took DH for DR appointments. Went & got my hair cut, went to DR this afternoon for me & was told that I have Superficial Thrombophlebitis from when I went in the ER back on Dec 1. I have been having a lot of pain in my thumb & wrist area. It has been swollen and red in spots. Now on another med for 7 days to try to clear it up.

It was 20 when we went to church and clear. Snow all over when we came out. DD and I worked with the kids church today. Showed them a new video from CBN. Still snowing and a mix predicted for morning tomorrow.

Glad you are doing better with your knee. I wish I could say as much. Being I have a clipped & pinched nerve. It is hard doing things but I do them anyway and try to just work through the pain.

On Monday, I saw the chiropractor and he adjusted my knee for me. I could not lie flat on my back without my left knee aching. It is much better. Praise the Lord! Ice storm coming our way, but it may miss us! Hope so!

Have a great day, All!

Todays DR visit went well. She said all my tests came back OK so she thinks my visit to the ER on Sunday most like was acid reflex from the hiatal hernia. She upped my meds for that. Spent quality time with DH also

Just checking in. Today I took a day of rest. I really don't feel that great. I don't know if it is my lymphoid , my hiatal hernia or my heart. They all give me the same symptoms I have tried my nitro & mainly been resting on the couch all day. I did 10 min of walking total for .44 miles.

Tomorrow will be a better day I have Faith in that.

Ashley, I see a rheumatologist for inflammatory arthritis and fibromyalgia . The best thing that I have done for pain, inflammation and swelling is to stop eating dairy and sugar. It has been amazing! I have been able to wear my rings for the first time in a long, long time. I do take Cymbalta (am weaning off of that) and Lyrica. I also take a Methotrexate injection once a week. I feel pretty good right now. Better than in years. My pain level has gone from a steady 4-5 to about 1.5. I am so praising God for it all.

I will be praying that you find your answers. God bless you! emoticon

Well I did relax somewhat today. I ended up doing 1.01 miles. I did laundry today. I watched golf all day. We had some bad thunderstorms today with nickel+ hale. Going to rest the rest of the night.

God is my Strength & Salvation.
The Joy Of The LORD IS My Strength. .
PRAISE GOD always and he will take care of you,
Always Keep A Positive Attitude

Preparing for Children's Carnival Saturday. In coincides with the town wide sales and Pastor is planning to pass out invitations to children for VBS the week that follows. Looking forward to a great time of ministry with the kids. My DGDS (the twins) are setting up a flea market type table in the fellowship hall, along with a few others, for the town wide. Hoping for a great turnout!

Meta -- Thanks for your prayers for the New Year. DD and I are planning to work more with children's church. We feel we are losing this generation and we have worked with children before with very good results. What I hear the Spirit saying about many Christians is "dull of hearing." We must pray that our Pastors have the mind of Christ and proclaim boldly what God is saying to the church.

Happy New Year, All! emoticon

Yesterday, this month got even busier. Got a call from DH at work and I had to go get him and take him to the hospital to get his eye checked out. He got a drop of acid in it. Follow up today to eye Dr. No permanent damage. Praise the Lord!

November begins a totally busy month for us. Today I need to prepare to teach a class at the homeschool co-op tomorrow morning. DD asked me to babysit tomorrow evening. Sat AM we are packing shoe boxes at the church for kids overseas. Sunday, we begin working with the kids for the youth Christmas program. I am heading it up this year. Thurs I will be teaching the Thurs night Bible Study. Friday, (9th) decorating hall for family Holiday party. Sat family party. Sun back to SS class for program practice . . .

That takes care of the first ten days. Whew! And in the mist of all of that, I must begin my Christmas sewing.

Oh, Lord, give me strength! I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me -- hope these things are ALL acceptable in His sight so there is strength. Praise His Name!!!

Barb, You are so right. Our God is able! I'm glad to hear you're not in a lot of pain. This evening on the way into my gated community I had an incident with a rude young man. I sent an email out to my neighbors regarding the incident. I've received a LOT of support and hopefully we'll find a security measure to deal with people coming into the gate behind other cars. last month someone did this and stayed and robbed a few houses. The couple was caught, but we are being extra cautious now, and by my being cautious apparently inconvenienced this man. too bad in my opinion, and based on the emails I received, the neighbors agree with me. I certainly hope my children would never speak to an elder the way this ugh, I can't even stand to call him man, because he wasn't a man. Anyway, I need to go pray about all of this and the boy and his family. Good night all.

Thank you for your prayers. The therapy will be 2 to 3x a week for 6 weeks. I tell people that if I would not injure myself I would be pretty healthy. The sciatica came from a couple of falls through the years that damaged my lower back disk. The next one up is starting to show some damage now. That disk is putting pressure on the nerve. Our God is able. I have prayed for people with back pain and they have been healed. I do not have a lot of pain in my back, but the nerve causes my thigh or foot to go numb.

Our God is able! Praise His Holy Name!

Have a great Sunday!

Barb, I hope your knee feels better soon. How long do you have to do therapy?
My mom has sciatica issues too and was told it takes a LONG time to heal. I'm doing more core muscles as I really don't want to have to deal with that. I'll keep you in my prayers.

I don't know if this would apply in your situation, but I have found some musical classes on the internet for free. If your ds is really advanced, this may not be for him. God will open a door -- or perhaps He already has.

First day of therapy today for my knee as well as the sciatica. The knee pain is almost constant. The therapist says it is Patella Tendonitis. That's just inflammation of the tendon below my knee cap. Praying for a quick recovery.

Hope All have a great weekend!

My dd and her dh had a doctor's appointment yesterday. The ultra-sound showed the baby waving its arms and having a good time, then stuck its thumb in its mouth and took a nap. LOL
The way they demonstrated for me was so precious. I keep asking them to show me again.
This is my first grandbaby. everyone in the family is very excited of course. =)

My ds's violin instructor just raised her rates. This is the proverbial straw on top of all kinds of other things, so we have to stop. I know God doesn't slam a door closed without opening another. I know my son wants to continue violin, but it is very expensive.

This week, (where HAS this week gone?!), I was inquiring about a math curriculum and one woman from a coop responded. As it turns out she's a professor at a local university and my son may be able to take her Chemistry class. The fee of the class is cheaper for one whole semester than a month and a half of violin. So I think THIS may be our other door. =)

I'm sad the violin instructor wasn't even willing to work with us. We have been going to her for over a year, have always been on time with her fee, never bounce checks, (which according to her new rules appears to be a problem with her other students), and claims she LOVES teaching my ds; he's one of her best students. And yet, despite all that, she's not willing to work with us on her fee increase. Sort of leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. I feel as though we just mean money to her.

Thanks for listening

We went yard saling yesterday and I brought home some good deals. I got a used microwave for $10. Our old one had a broken knob and timer. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. We were using the new one to heat things and it seems to be good.

Also, got a purse for a dollar. Was looking for a green one (I wear a lot of green in the summer) and it will fit in nicely. A few other things, like a stand for our living room for $5 that we can put the TV on. A summer bucket hat for 25 cents, Wooden embroidery hoops (2) for crafting for 25 cents apiece, cushions for our outdoor chairs for 25 cents each, and some reasonably priced hardback books. All in all some good finds.

Tornado?! I hadn't even heard.

We had really strong winds the night before and another lightning storm last night as well. We were only on the edge of the storm, so I would hate to imagine how strong the winds were in the center of it all.

Perhaps I expect Amish to be more knowledgeable to storms and what to do in them. Their actions just really shock me and creates so many questions.

No phone until possibly August? Is that the first of August? LOL Or sometime in August? Yes, it's a good thing your friend has cell connection.

Tornado missed us, but lots of rain.

I guess they were in the field and the rain came up so suddenly they could only think to go under a tree.

My friend's phone is out and they are telling her it may not be back on until Aug. 1. Luckily she can get cell service there. It stormed here earlier here this evening again.

My first though; oh my how awful.
my second, why in the world did they try and hide under a tree? I would think they'd know better. What a tragedy.
We are also under severe storm threat. We just had a really strong one pass by. Thank goodness we were on the tail end of this one. The eye of it seemed to be near my farm. I'm sure if there's damage to the barn my neighbor will give me a call.
Be safe!

South of us here in PA, an Amish women was struck with lightning. She and her full term unborn child were both killed. The husband and another child survived. They each found a tree to get under when a severe, sudden storm came upon them. The community -- not just Amish -- are in great support of them. Please remember them in prayer.

We had a tornado warning earlier this evening. It was very close to us. Now we are under severe storm warnings until 10PM. We were in the basement for awhile, not knowing if it would come closer.

We are trusting the Lord to watch over us.

I will have to ask my mom if Lucy is trouble. I hadn't even thought about it. LOL I did just receive a letter from her today and she said she accidentally over watered her yard and now the birds have water in their bird bath; "mud pit." So I take it they like wallowing in the muddy water puddles.

I'm sorry. Perhaps you may have already mentioned the Amish farm? Now that you have written it I feel like you have. There is something so peaceful about Amish farms. =)

Lucy and Ethel? How Cute~!!! Wonder if Lucy is trouble. . .

It is an Amish farm we go to about every two weeks for goat milk and eggs. I use goat milk because it is not acid producing like cow's milk. It is raw and has lots of enzymes in it for digesting.

We spent Sat yard saling with the twins. We were gone about 5 hours. We stopped and got gas and lunch at Sheetz on the run. The girls were given some free things. I bought a bag of clothes for a $1 a bag and got a couple of things for the girls.

Went to the farm for eggs and milk when we got home.

Today, visiting our Pastor friend's church and had lunch with them, my daughter's family and her friends. It was a lovely setting in the country. Quiet, peaceful, relaxing.

I know what it is like to need to rest in my own bed. Glad you had a good weekend.

spent the weekend out of town and I'm exhausted. The hotel was crowded and full of rude people; loud, obnoxious, no consideration for the time of night and their level of conversation in the hall way, and parents allowing kids to run down the hallway after 10pm. NOT acceptable.
It will be SO good to sleep in my own bed tonight. emoticon

the weekend was amazing regardless of the hotel. We met a lot of new people and they shared part of their lives with us. My ds met a lot of kids and they played for long periods of time. (It was hotter today than yesterday) But they still had a blast running in the meadows and playing swords.

My part came in for my sewing machine on Sat. Now I can use the walking foot -- after some practice, of course. Haven't used this machine and foot for a few years. I have some edging to put on the meet width and length of the fleece backing, then I can put the whole thing together.

Pastor's message this AM was on "What Are you Willing To Die For?" Very timely when many Christians are getting lax in their service to the Lord. He meant 'spiritual death.' Their were some people who came in with pain and were anointed and prayed for and left w/o pain. Lovely song service. Some new people came and all in all it was a lovely day. Hope everyone else had a lovely day!

God Bless your week.

it's a blessing to have a back up. I hope you get your main machine fixed quickly so you can finish on time.

Random blocks are wonderful!

While sewing last night, I broke a needle and now my machine is not working properly. I have been able to find problems and fix them before, but I couldn't fix it this time. I am on a time schedule, so I must get out my older machine and see if it will see me thru until this one is fixed. May have to send it away.

I need my machine for my home business. I pray it will be fixed quickly.

LOL I had to chuckle when you said your mom didn't crochet. My mom doesn't have any hobbies. For that matter, I don't think my grandma did either. Everything I learned I either taught myself or learned from a lady that sold crafts way back in the late '80's.

Oh I love colors and putting fabrics together too. I call it eye candy. emoticon

Your Raggedy Ann quilt sounds precious! And what a beautiful way of presenting it to your dd. What a great memory.

I do have a quilt on the wall that is waiting for the border. My oldest son called dibs on it. LOL It's not the quilt I had planned for him, it's yellow and blue. Random blocks, so I didn't have to worry about seams.

Good luck on your current quilt. I've not worked on a t-shirt quilt before, but think they're great.

I haven't made very many quilts. The first one I made was for my daughter when she was young. I had a nice sized preprinted picture of Raggedy Ann and sewed patches around it. I had a prequilted bottom to put on it. It was twin size and I surprised one Christmas by placing it of her bed after she had gone to sleep. It was one of those special things.
I don't quilt for myself, just when someone else wants something done like the T shirt quilt I am doing now. I do not have a special attachment for my machine. It is difficult. Yes, I do have some UFO's.

I never learned to crochet. My Mom never did so I never did.

The thing I like best about quilting is matching up pieces that I think look great together. Colors are my thing. As far as patterns, I like to make quilts that are like pictures, though I seldom get the chance to do what I want to.

Hope to have more time later. Right now I have orders to fill. Are you doing a quilt now?

Keep Sparkin'!

I don't hand quilt either. Takes too long and I just don't have the time to dedicate to it. I machine piece and have a long arm for quilting together. Do you have a favorite pattern? And do you have any UFO's? I think I have about five.
I've been crocheting for a group I joined that donates our projects to the community through various avenues. It's been a lot of fun, but I think I want to start a group at my own church.
We received rain yesterday. We need a good drenching for about a week to get everything green again. This is the driest summer I've ever experienced in the South.
Barb, what's your favorite part of quilting?

I do not hand quilt. I do it on the machine, but then I have to tie it off. The bigger quilts are very hard to maneuver, but what I am doing now may work out OK. They are suppose to be quilt size.

I quilt too Barb! I also have put myself on a fabric restriction...and a book restriction...and a clothing restriction. LOL yarn for crocheting will be next.

I've noticed a lot less garden/grass watering in my neighborhood and nearby neighborhoods. People are choosing to spend their money on other things, because the times are so bad.

The year is half over and I am starting to prepare for our family Christmas party;. Actually, it will be before Thanksgiving, so it should be called a holiday party. I am working on getting the stuff to decorate the hall and gifts for the gift table. Working on the T shirt quilt for my friend's daughter is going slow. I only have our bed to lay things out on and I need it as a place to fold clothes and, of course, to sleep. I need to downsize my fabric stash. Just need direction from the Lord to be really thrifty in these trying times.

Hope all is well with All.

Had a whirlwind day on Saturday! Health Class at church and health services from 10 until 2. Got home to find a friend working on our much needed new steps, and his wife was looking on. They arrived at about 10 and had nothing to eat for lunch. Hubby gave them drinks, but was working with Harry so did not stop to eat either. I got myself a quick sandwich and with much protesting from them, made some sloppy joes, carrots, and salad for a brupper ( not quite lunch--not quite supper) at four. I cleared the table and the guys went out to work again. Visited with the wife. They were gone about 6. Had someone call with a need right before they left. Called back after they left. Had just started to clean up kitchen when another friend called and said they wanted to come over. I had done some sewing for them and they just remembered to pick it up. They arrived close between 7:30 and 8 and did not leave until ten. I still had some computer work to do, still some cleaning to do in the kitchen and was generally worn out. Thank the LORD for His strength to get through this whirlwind!

Have a great weekend and keep Sparkin'!!!

I huddled yesterday. I guess you didn't see it. I'll huddle again today too. I don't always have time to get on the computer.

I tried to get some yard work done yesterday. I got a quote for mulch for just the front yard and the company wanted $1000. Yes, you read that correctly. LOL Just for the front too! HA! I said no. I'm glad I did too, because then my car went into the shop that same day and I'll get it tomorrow, (it's been almost two weeks) and the price tag is a WHOPPER! emoticon

I have compromised many things in my life...after much praying and agony. When I was young I felt I 'needed' affirmation...but the older I get, the more independent I come. I have hurt several friends fromt he church I attend, but time has passed and life goes on. Iwas invited to be in a prayer group. The idea was that each of the participants would study and then go out and start other prayer groups and so on and so on. I was reared in a congregation that raised their hands and called on the Lord. We prayed out loud and as long as it took. My current church is stifled but as more people come in and mix with the formal creed...we see changes happening. I dropped out of the prayer group after several months. I am not better than these sisters, but my focus is different. They don't think there's a problem with multiple marraiges, or with many other subjects that I feel interferes with personal witness. If I don't examine myself and clean up my own life, how can I approach a non-churched person and tell them I have a better answer for them when I'm living just like them. Getting baptised does not save you....go down a sinner and come up a wet sinner. If you haven't asked the Lord into your heart to forgive you - then it's a ritual. So, when I questioned some of the things in the lessons presented in the prayer group...and I saw the deer in the headlight look on their faces...and....I quietly backed out. I see so many things in the church based on entertainment. Pizza parties, bowling parties, movie parties, swimming parties, and any thing that will entertain. I hear leaders talking about 'keeping the kids involved' but I see no focus on training them to be warriors for God. I'm concerned. So...I drive the church van and do my best to encourage bible study and prayer. I'm a grandmother now and all I can think about is who will teach my grandson?
Hold on to your faith. God will not fail you. Form/organize your own group, reach out, teach others how to do your craft. You are not alone. My heart and prayers are with you!

Keep Sparkin'!

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers Philemon 1:3,4

I certainly hope so. These women are the only "friends" I have. I've noticed a variety of things that aren't in agreement with my relationship with God; music, movies, etc. I used to enjoy the weekly fellowship, but more and more things seem to be popping up. I tried ignoring them at first, because I want the female companionship and I like crocheting for the community. This just feels like the proverbial straw. ??

it's more than the clothing. God has been speaking to me for awhile about distancing myself from this group.

This is so good!!! You might smile and ask the sister "does that offend you?" or "How does that make you feel?" I have sisters in my church who attend other congregations to scrapbook, knit, quilt, and whatever they have in common. I don't look like the women we socialize with. I have long hair and usually no jewelry or make-up. Sister has a bun, wears dresses, no makeup, jewelry, etc....but we love the ladies we meet with and when they ask questions we just talk to them. The Word says to work out your own salvation in fear and trembling and also to sanctify yourself daily. I can't imagine Christ walking out on a group over clothing. He fellowshiped with a lot of non believers and followers alike. I respect your concern over not being worldly...just let the Lord guide your decision. Thanks for the post!

Keep Sparkin'!

Where are you that you need rain? Wish I could send some your way.

I do have some thoughts on our appearance. We are to dress modestly, not alluring. Apparently, Jesus blended in with the "normal" when he walked here. He wore a robe, long hair, and sandals. That was normal for His time in the world. Today men with long hair are seen, but not prevalent. Robes are worn, but in choirs and behind pulpits. Sandals would not do for our PA harsh winters.

There are ways we can "blend in" as Jesus did, without offending God or our fellow Christians.

R.W. Schambach, a general in the Pentecostal faith, said our holiness should not be on a clothesline -- if you know what I mean.

If you enjoy the ladies' group, perhaps you could speak about your differences in a loving Christian manner. Cutting ties could be a harsh unloving way to handle a situation where good relationships in Christ could be developed. I once heard this bit of wisdom from a Pastor, "We agree to disagree." Agreement breeds peace. Blessed are the Peacemakers!

Have a great weekend!

We need some rain; send it my way. =)

Last night I was at a fellowship group at a church I do NOT attend. God has really been speaking to me about not going. I like this crochet/fellowship group. They are truly the only women I socialize with.

A woman in the group told me last night I looked normal

I asked, compared to what?

She said, Usually you look "apostolic" (yes she used her fingers to quote)
I replied, "I am "apostolic" and used my fingers to quote as she did for emphasis.

The more I have been thinking about it, the more I'm thinking it's time to cut my ties. I WANT to look like a child of God. I don't want to look like the rest of the world.

Any thoughts?

Brother's heart scan was completed and they will need to do more testing. He still has a problem that the scan did not reveal.

Older brother scheduled for hip replacement on Monday. Please pray for him. He has a heart problem also.

Thanks! Let me know if you are out there, please!

Hello, to anyone who visits here.

Brother is going for a heart cath soon. Dr thinks he has a blockage.

Hubby found a used garden tractor he is pleased with. It has a snow plow and garden plow with it. That was an answer to his prayers.

Side is still healing from bad bruise. Unable to do much but machine massage and walking. Sitting is sometimes still painful.

Going to do a thermography today.

Hope everyone -- whoever is out there -- is still Sparkin'.

God Bless!

Hi, to anyone who stops here.

Suppose to be storming here again tomorrow. Had a migraine last night and my 11 year old granddaughter helped me out awhile. Hubby came home and hour early from work so my daughter could take Laura home.

Hubby came out OK from the bee sting and cut finger on Monday. Too wet yesterday to finish the garden.

Tatter3--Hope all is well with you. Have not seen you post here for awhile.

God bless to All!

Barb

The weekend was nice and hot. My daughter and family were here for Memorial day Monday for a cookout. We finally got the garden plowed and hopefully will get the plants in tomorrow. We are not use to all this hot weather. We usually wait for the "end of May frost" before we plant, but does not look like one is coming so we think we are pretty safe in doing our planting now.

We are going to get two plum tree starts from my daughter to plant in the front yard. Also, some hawthorn berry starts from my brother. We had some strawberry starts, but think it is too late for those now.

Hope for more activity on this team.

Greetings! So glad someone is still out there.

Most folks in our church are not avid TV watchers. Too much work and other things to do. However, most do watch Christian TV and news shows. I think there is only one family in our church without regular TV, but they too have internet that is restricted.

My son is away today with family camping. He asked us to look in on his animals today and they will be back tomorrow. It has been so hot that the chickens will most probably need water. The rabbit, cat, dogs and chickens will all need fed. He lives near his in-laws but I guess they will all be away, too. We are usually out his way on Saturdays to go to a local Amish farm to get our goat milk and eggs.

It looks like today will be a nice day.

Please pray for my youngest brother. He needs to see a heart Dr about maybe getting a pacemaker.

Hope you have a lovely holiday and relaxing weekend.

God Bless.
