Thank you, irene. I know you would enjoy the GPS if you travel in your car. Mine is a Garmin with a traffic advisory feature, that is a big help. It even tells me which lane to be in to make a turn.

Pat, the thyroid remedy is Thyroid Complex M1435 by MEDI HERB. It has Bladderwrack extract, Withania Root extract, and Bacopa extract. If you would like to talk to my naturopath or order some, let me know and I will email that info to you. I had to use a magnifying glass to read those names, so i hope they are spelled correctly.

Hi Roberta! So happy that you are about to get the last appointments for everything! I pray it all goes well for you!
How fun that you will have a GPS with you for this trip. I had one for the first time last year coming back north from Texas. It is on my little cell phone. I wasn't driving of course so could track our whole trip. I will be using it again in about a week when we travel back to Texas.
What is the new homeopathic you are using for low thyroid that is working? I take a medication for mine. I could still use more energy!
Have a safe trip.

Good Morning, Everyone

Sept. 27 is my last surgeon's follow-up appointment. Sept. 28 is my last physical therapy appointment, and on Sept. 29, I will head out to Idaho. This time I will have a GPS to keep me company--they are such fun--like having a friend in the car with me.

The weather should be good--in September, the mountain roads will be perfect for driving--not too hot nor too cold.

This new homeopathic remedy for low thyroid appears to be boosting my energy--I just started taking it on Thursday and this is Sunday. How good it feels to feel better, have more energy, and not feel groggy all day and not sleeping at night.

Here is to an enjoyable and successful week to all of us.
emoticon Roberta

That would be fun. We live in Central Texas and you said you might pass through this way sometime and I thought we could arrange to meet in a restaurant somewhere.

It is raining here today. Garden and Flowers are happy but not our dogs. They hate going out in the rain to do their business. Especially DD's dog. He is terrified of storms and jumps in bed with us. We have to give him what DD calls his "thunder pills" to calm him down. But Poochie our Shi Tzu could care less about the lightning and thunder. Just doesn't like to go OUT in it.

God Bless you my friend. Hope you get caught up on your rest.
My day went like this.
Prepared breakfast and lunch and cleaned the dishes and kitchen.(DD brought home a veggie Pizza for dinner)Not too much clean up there.
Had a hair shape up at 1:00. DH took my picture from my cell phone to show my hairdresser in Texas what I am aiming for. emoticon emoticon Took it in front of our blooming Mandovillas. A pink one up over the mail box and white ones over the beautiful arch DH built this summer.
Cooked up freshly dug beets from our garden. Tomorrow I will make them in to SPARK recipe
Furnace man came to winterize our furnace.
Making a list of what we need to take to Texas. We will have quite a load with the big cooler of frozen blueberries and 3 Mandovilla plants that will be cut back from their 6 feet tall now to a foot or so. They were set out in their pots so they should be ready to go .
Watched an incredible movie tonight with DD and DH. called "Letters to Juliet." Sweet love story and beautiful scenery of Italy. Called another DD to recommend. She and a granddaughter will be visiting Florence in October.
Finally got caught up on the computer and am ready to go to bed.
Good Night all!, Pat

Ok here is the story of my day. I felt much better after a good night's sleep.
Then off to TOPS for weigh in, pot luck (healthy) and auction. We had lots of fun.
I wanted to declutter some and guess what I brought some stuff home.
I turtled on my weight I thought I had lost but according to their scales I stayed the same. I am content with that, just so I don't gain. I do want to lose some more weight though.
Then the auction started. The lady who did the auction had a name for everyone. She called me the skinny lady. Can you believe it ME SKINNY. Now I am not skinny but I'll take it.
When I returned home I was very tired so took a nap, got up and am tired again. I will have Friday and Saturday to rest up for Sunday.
This should have been a blog. LOL.
God bless you all and have a good night.

When Your Hut's On Fire


The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him. Every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming.

Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect himself from the elements, and to store his few possessions. One day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut
in flames, with smoke rolling up to the sky. He felt the worst had happened, and everything was lost. He was stunned with disbelief, grief, and anger. He cried out, 'God! How could you do this to me?'

Early the next day, he was awakened by the sound of a ship approaching the island! It had come to rescue him! 'How did you know I was here?' asked the weary man of his rescuers. 'We saw your smoke signal,' they replied.


The Moral of This Story:
It's easy to get discouraged when things are going bad, but we shouldn't lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of our pain and suffering. Remember that the next time your little hut seems to be burning to the ground. It just may be a smoke signal that summons the Grace of God.

TRIP TO COSTCO

Yesterday I was at my local COSTCO buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Coco, the Wonder Dog and was in the checkout line when the woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

What did she think I had, an elephant? So since I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that
it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat
one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.)

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter's rear end and a car hit us both.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.

Costco won't let me shop there anymore.

Better watch what you ask retired people.

Pat I just kind of make it to taste like I do beef meat loaf. I do like to put shredded carrots in it to add color but didn't have any. I used to use prepared bread crumbs but that is not too healthy so use oats. You know how mom used to cook, a little dab here there a pinch, etc.

Hi Irene! You are one busy bee as usual! And a blessing to your church community too. That is what keeps you young, that is for sure.
Hey that meatloaf sounds good. I have been using ground turkey too in my SPARK recipe-Sloppy Garden Joes-DH loves it. I just looked under my POULTRY recipes and I don't have one for Turkey Meatloaf. Where did you find yours?
Our baby shower for great grand baby to be- baby Peter- went off beautifully. Unfortunately I missed seeing her open her gifts as Daughter number 2 was up helping me set out the food and make the last minute punch. Daughter number one was in her basement apartment with guests for the party- part. Then they all came up to our tables for refreshments. She is the one on one leg after her foot surgery. The granddaughter who was suppose to be giving the shower had to work at her new job so we stepped up to do the honors. Everything went off well. I love entertaining guests for any reason. It gives me the excuse I need to Squeaky clean the house!

Glad to hear from you DOGLVR8- Did you have a virus hit your computer? I had one strike as I was trying to download a new computer Protection System! Took it to repairman and he cleaned us all up. But that left me without a computer for a week too!
Hope you are making progress on your house repairs too. Boy that can be one expensive headache!
Really glad to hear you have made progress in your weight loss. What is your goal?

I suppose I'm doing okay. Since June I've been saddled with major house repairs and, on top of that, computer problems. Just an explanation of why I haven't been taking part in this forum. Hopefully, better days are coming and things will come together.

In the meantime I did manage to lose a few pounds.

My day. Went to the beauty shop for a perm.
Did some shopping at Walgreens.
Took a long
Studied my Sunday School lesson. It is on not taking vengeance and used David not taking vengeance on Saul, then his son taking vengeance on another son of David since he violated his sister. Quite a story and he held that in his heart for years.
Printed out some things for a friend of mine.
Made a turkey meat loaf with oats, etc.
Looked at a condo for sale here as a friend wants to buy one down here.
Now I am back on Spark again.
I did do my points.
Sounds like everyone is busy and content.

Second skin cancer surgery went as well as the first. Only there 3 and half half hours. Some folks had been there for 7 hours! Getting the repeat surgeries after their first ones still proved positive. Not happy campers.
Last evening and today I am taking it easier than usual as prescribed by Dr. No walking the dogs or using the Elliptical for a couple of days. I did make the bed, fill dishwasher and drive our 2 house dogs to grooming this morning plus put our lunch in the oven to bake.
But DH cleaned the bathrooms, dusted surfaces and filled and started a load of wash before heading out to mow the lawn. We have more house guests coming tomorrow and will be preparing for a baby shower here Saturday!

Yes, my mammograms haven't hurt for a few years now.
Hope with you that your second skin cancer will heal as good as the first one.

These trips to the doctor are adding up! Today I had my annual mammogram. Anyone noticed the new machines are much more comfortable than the old ones were?
Tomorrow I will have the second skin cancer removed from my forehead. The one done at my forehead hairline last Tues is healing nicely. Sure hope this one goes as well.

This is NOT a joke. If you were able to pass these 3 tests, you can cancel your annual visit to your neurologist. Your brain is great and you're far from having a close relationship with Alzheimer.

Congratulations!

Irene I am sorry to hear, kinda late, that you are having trouble with gout. I believe that can can be rather painful so I hope you have seen the doctor and have it under control by now.

"All things are possible to him that believeth." Mark 9:23
Many professed Christians are always doubting and fearing, and they forlornly think that this is the necessary state of believers. This is a mistake, for "all things are possible to him that believeth"; and it is possible for us to mount into a state in which a doubt or a fear shall be but as a bird of passage flitting across the soul, but never lingering there. When you read of the high and sweet communions enjoyed by favoured saints, you sigh and murmur in the chamber of your heart, "Alas! these are not for me." O climber, if thou hast but faith, thou shalt yet stand upon the sunny pinnacle of the temple, for "all things are possible to him that believeth." You hear of exploits which holy men have done for Jesus; what they have enjoyed of Him; how much they have been like Him; how they have been able to endure great persecutions for His sake; and you say, "Ah! as for me, I am but a worm; I can never attain to this." But there is nothing which one saint was, that you may not be. There is no elevation of grace, no attainment of spirituality, no clearness of assurance, no post of duty, which is not open to you if you have but the power to believe. Lay aside your sackcloth and ashes, and rise to the dignity of your true position; you are little in Israel because you will be so, not because there is any necessity for it. It is not meet that thou shouldst grovel in the dust, O child of a King. Ascend! The golden throne of assurance is waiting for you! The crown of communion with Jesus is ready to bedeck your brow. Wrap yourself in scarlet and fine linen, and fare sumptuously every day; for if thou believest, thou mayst eat the fat of kidneys of wheat; thy land shall flow with milk and honey, and thy soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness. Gather golden sheaves of grace, for they await thee in the fields of faith. "All things are possible to him that believeth."
—Morning and Evening

Maybe most of you know as I wrote it in my status and also in the huddle that I woke up in the night with gout. emoticon
I had it once before years ago and it is no fun.
Haven't been able to keep up with the teams too good. Sorry about that.
I guess too many doctor's appointments and other things.

Boy, you are to be commended for taking action to avoid diabetes. So glad you lost the weight and cleared up your tests.
I guess I am not "heavy" but I still have a ways to go to reach my goal. I would like to eventually get to 149 which seems to be right for my height.
When I set my sites on losing weight but losing slowly my body is sure following through. I am still losing but at a snails pace.
emoticon My main goal is to stay healthy and to stay active and though I have my little set backs I am doing that!

Pat I was diagnosed as diabetic when I was fat but my sugar kept going down so much the doc took me off of it and I was ok. I think it was a one time thing.
It does run in my family though so it was essential to lose weight as I also had hypertension and other things. Losing weight was the best thing I could do for me. You don't look heavy.

That hits the nail on the head. Several of those factors describe my history so I have to be doubly careful. How about you?
