A Trial Run...

Okay y'all, we're trying something today. SparkPeople's website no longer supports video blogs. This is sad news for this hooper/singalong/dogwalking SparkNerd. Coach Jen suggested I post links from YouTube. I'm reluctantly trying that. YouTube is a big, scary world. But I miss chatting with y'all, so we're gonna give it a go. One positive from this is that you can watch YT videos on your phone and you couldn't with SP vlogs. So there's a silver lining, right? We'll see how it goes.

Here is a short, riveting video of me and Bubba taking a walk. You will be thrilled. It's amazing.

Quick update: Randy is doing FANTASTIC. He's like the Wonder Patient. Within the last month or so, he's lost 21 pounds, gone down two jeans sizes, and his sugar numbers are good for a NORMAL person. I'm so proud of him!

This guy is incredible!

Air Fryer update: We finally got ours. It still reminds me of an incubator for baby chickens. So far I've roasted chicken and some veggies. Honestly, I'm not sure how this is better than an oven, but it's fun to stand there and watch it cook. Audrey calls it a Glorified Easy Bake Oven. I tend to agree.

Chicken and veggies I roasted. It took approximately three days to cook because--I don't know what the Amish people are feeding their chickens in Ohio, but suffice it to say they're eating well. Next time, smaller pieces of chicken, much smaller.

Overall, I'm not dancing in the streets over the pressure cooker or the air fryer. They're cool, but they'd probably be even cooler if I were a better cook. I'm guessing skill comes into play here. I keep trying new things and I'm almost 50/50 on how things turn out. Gonna have to settle for those odds.

Still staying super active, walking, hooping, etc. I won this award on my Apple Watch.

I can't remember what is was for, but whatever it was, I did it 100 times. I'm guessing, anyway...

Speaking of numbers, check out this set my amazing Arts Team built for $32. Posterboard, paper clips and paracord. No lie. These people are brilliant.

Gonna wrap this up. Just wanted to do a little trial run of a WorkAround SparkVlog. I'll try to make it more interesting next time, but seriously, how can you get enough of Bubba? You can't. I'll leave you with my latest googly-eyed creation.

I fixed the air freshener in the Waffle House. It's way better now.

Spark ON, Brave Sparkers!

    Bubba! He’s so photogenic, isn’t he? I watched the vlog and the one after it, too. Worked great, but I do understand what you’re saying about posting on YouTube. Plus everyone at church can watch your Spark vlogs. Hmm.

    Congratulations to Randy! Wow, he’s doing great. I’m also impressed that he managed to get the air fryer/easy bake oven. Congratulations to you, too, for whatever it was that you did 100 times. The set your Arts Team built really is fantastic. Beautiful.

    Thank goodness you fixed that air freshener. Waffle House should be delighted.
