Kids do seem to have a way of saying things. At least he didn't ask you about the road map on your legs.

Computer problems seem to be abounding. My fan is going out on my LT.

Today my grandson wanted to know why my legs were cracked, I thought he was talking about my scar on my leg, He said no, those cracks. He was talking about the veins in my leg. My skin is so pale they are really pronounced. Still laughing about it.

Having a lot of strong background in nutrition and strongly believing that God provided us good things to eat sometimes it's hard for me to think about the idea of cutting out a whole food group and I have never had an issue with gluten or constipation. Well not quite true as I am faithfully taking iron supplements right now because I have hemoglobin issues and that is creating issues with me digestively speaking a3t times11111111111111111 (hmm kitten on the keyboard) I am not sure what I am going to do right now. I am reading a couple of raw vegan biased books at the moment. We'll see. Mostly I have just been dealing with a lot fo sluggishness, could be the low iron and a lot lot of headaches, not bad ones just annoying.
Today has been a long day already. Work was busy and promises to be busy again tomorrow. We finally have summer weather but it's pretty windy. Tomorrow is supposed to be pretty hot. I do know I am enjoying the sunshine.
Probably need to run. Places to go and things to do never seem to go away. I have got to either come up with a plan for traveling with Essie or find a cat sitter. We are going to Staples MN this weekend to spend time with Andrew's family. Not probably the most comfortable plan right now but probably good. His Aunts are having a shower for Emily and him and his grandparents have sent us multiple invitations to come and stay at thier home this weekend. So. . .
We'll see what happens.

Nellie, IMO these women are not reluctant at all wishing to become preachers! That was a difficult situation for your grandmother but it sounds as if she was reading what your grandfather, as pastor had studied and written out.

Leona, a 10hr drive is a very long way! I'd be exhausted attempting that without a few days break in between.

Lori, how far is Chicago from you? I suppose Amanda's plans will include whether she intends to return to Ghana again for another year. Good to hear that Esse is thriving and working on bending Abby's heart!!
Yes I suppose it could be seen as kind of an extreme way of eating but I have struggled for far too long trying to get my body to accept 'normal' foods that just are bad for me. Just to be frank...I have suffered from bad constipation for as long as I can remember. I did know that grains where probably the cause... The whole meat/poultry chain scares me, I just don't want to eat any of it anymore!! There is so much farmed fish here, but I can still get perch from the River Nile, which I know is probably polluted but better than something that is being man fed on who knows what. The tuna fish is a good fish to choose here too. There are so many other foods that we can replace those foods with, just takes some imagination and getting fresh ideas from some of my cookery books.
I was reading this news item yesterday...I think it will come too...!!

e-2008347/Test-tube-burger-coming-soR>on-Lab-grown-meat-needed-feed-world.html


Had an abysmal nights sleep again last night...somebody around here could be banished to another bedroom if somebody around doesn't let me get some shut eye tonight!! Poor Joseph is still stressed out over Sunday evening of course and talking to the pastor about the woman behind the pulpit he had peaching! So praying he will finally relax again.

Good Morning, Good Morning
It's a sunny day in my neighborhood. My kitten is settling down to a decent eating style and a life style of harrassing the older cat Abby. I think eventually Abby will end up her friend but it will take a while.
Reading what I would call extreme diet books this week. Janet I think you would call it your lifestyle. We'll see. I am reading right now and trying harder again to cut back.
Also working on getting my exercise ramped up again. I've gotten a bit sluggish since coming back from Africa.
Need to get moving if I am going to workout before work today!

The days are flying by so quickly. The neighbor invited the boys over to play with her son and they had so much fun. The oldest even went down a zipline twice. I forgot they had one. Their parents wanted details I didn't have. Her son invited them over every day they are here. I told them that we have some plans too and his mom might have some other plans.

Last prophecy class was tonight and now to study for the test. I learned so much. Hoping dd can get away from my cousin tomorrow night to get her last class.

Talked to my sis and she wants to make a the trip to see my aunt going down one way and back the next. It is ten hours. I don't think that is wise to subject my body to that much time in the car in such a short time. So I think I am telling her no. Not sure if she will go by herself. In the beginning it was suppose to be 4 days. She is so busy.

Got to run.

I know that many years ago, my grandfather was placed as pastor for a very small church in New Mexico. He was very ill with TB and frequently couldn't give his sermons, so my grandmother would read them. Since he did not seem to be getting better, after a year that church called another pastor. My grandfather, grandmother and mother (as an infant) moved to El Paso, Texas, where my grandmother worked as a teacher to support the family. My grandfather kept hoping he would get better, but did not. He died a few days after I was born.

I think it was a difficult thing for my grandmother. She felt qualified to teach, but did not feel qualified to act as pastor.

Maintaining.

OH Janet and you don't even live here in the US. You are right about denominational standards slipping.
I was on the four lane divided highway. It was just that you couldn't see anything. Also a lot of Semi's.
Done with playing for a few days.
Leona praying all your medical issues get sorted out well soon. Sounds like the crisis are over but you need to probably keep pursuing whatever is going on with your husband. It doesn't sound resolved to me. More like swept under a medical rug. But maybe the antibiotics were the answer.
Hoping to talk to my daughter Amanda and find out more about her plans this week.We need to get some things worked out to get her home from Chicago when she flies in.

IMO I think some denominational standards have slipped far below what God says in His Word...I can't go with anything else. Their evening meeting was tough (for us) woman song leader who then started to read scripture and expound on it...Joseph quietly got up and asked the pastor if he was preaching at all?...he said in one hours time...Joseph told him the reasons we couldn't stay and we left. The pastor said he will contact Joseph and they can discuss it further, I doubt he will but we shall see. It gave Joseph a sleepless night, he feels the responsibility so deeply and always says, why any woman would want to emulate any one of the five fold ministry is beyond him! Having been married to Joseph for 17yrs and seeing the way the ministry works I can only agree with him...IMO it's a huge burden that the Lord places on His servants.
I'm just on day 19 of no grains or meat/poultry and am amazed at how many food related issues it has solved for me...bonus is, no sweet tooth. I never would have believed that one!!

Lori, you've certainly had a full w/e with your family. Emily & Andrew's pastor sounds like a very caring shepherd, I like to hear that! Glad you got safely home with all that rain, I think it's usually OK as long as everyone else slows up too.

Leona, thanks for the update on your cousin...
Did the little boys settle with you alright? I know they can sometimes miss mom at night time. Glad you had lots of fun with them, that's what memories are made of. Made me think about my little sister who has a birthday on 5th July (same day as Joseph) and my memories of when she was first born...I need to tell her about that next time we chat.

Have a very successful week everyone!!

I agree I would probably have a problem with Ladies preaching. I know that many women teachers are great.

Hugs to all, life is really busy right now. Did want to let you know that my cousin was released today so dd is back there. Two grandsons still here. Be interesting how the rest of the week goes. Hope I can get to bed early to get up early and workout before hubby leaves and then we will trade kids in town for his 9 am appointment.

A Prophetess? That concerns me more than that it is a woman doing the teaching if it is a ladies event.
Had a fun weekend. visited with Emily and Andrew some on Thursday and Friday early. Did the overnight family shower thing Friday evening and a good chunk of the day Saturday which was a lot of fun. Made me miss Amanda. Visisted with a good friend from the Minneapolis area Friday afternoon for a couple of hours. Shopped and putzed and looked at wedding stuff with Emily last night and today. They are getting a lot of things done and planned.
Church was nice this morning. I was in Fargo at Emily's church I really like Pastor Glenn. We has been doing Em and Andrew's premarital stuff and will perform their wedding. Such a good pastor and preacher.
Long drive home today as it rained most of the way. UGH. Hate driving in the rain and it really rained hard part of the time. Nearly had to pull over a couple of times but was ablt to just slow down and keep moving.
Lots of water in the state right now.
I am off to read Leona's blog than will head to bed soon. Work tomorrow.

Thanks for the update Leona, good news and not so good news I know.

Had a good meeting this morning and will be attending an evening meeting later so not much sparking time today. The ladies meeting yesterday was interesting, they are using a book as a study aid, and were planning for a ladies day conference....seems an American prophetess is coming to be the guest speaker. They asked if I could attend? So I asked if this lady would be preaching? Seems she is, so I told them that my bible doesn't permit woman to preach...that didn't go down too well with the pastor's wife! They were all friendly, especially one lady who said she was actually a member of the Philadelphia Church but as there wasn't a local one here so attended this Evangelical one. She privately told me she didn't believe it was correct for women to preach...so we had that in common.

Spent some time earlier looking for healthy restaurants in a city that we're going to during July. Found two which is vegetarian and their menus look good so that looks hopeful. I'm going to a women's meeting at Mario's church this evening and hopeful I meet some really nice ladies. Joseph's still working on the summer house so is pretty busy. I made some peach sorbet...tastes so good!!

Leona, Joseph has an enlarged heart too....nobody seems too perturbed about it...maybe you will get some info about that condition?
Sorry your cousin is still struggling, praying they get him stable again and home. Have fun with your grands when they arrive.

Lori, hope you're having fun too with Emily & Andrew!

Went to the pool early!

Waiting for the grands to arrive. Their doctor appt too about an hour longer than they had planned.

My youngest dd called and said that she wouldn't be able to come out like she had planned as she has my cousin in the ER again. He started throwing up this morning and had some trouble with his eyes. The nurse was there and said to take him to the hospital. So they are currently waiting for the results of the MRI. I just talked to his daughter and she really doesn't expect anything new. She wanted to call and she how my hubby is doing. He went in this morn and his doctor is doing some research. The test was normal, so he is going to talk to a cardiologist about the enlarged heart. The took another ex-ray this morning.

Lori, just remember no matter what happens at the end of the day, the will be married! My dd's sil's wedding had so many things happen it was totally exhausting to all involved. Amazing the bride handled everything well beside being very emotional

HI everyone, good to read and catch up.
Janet good to hear from you and I know your grand babies need you a lot....is that a new pond you have now? I know you love the fish, have you planted a garden this year?
I took a search of this wonder genie bra....I've never seen those of course but it looked a lot like the style of a sports bra to me. Personally I donĀ“t have problems with that garment, just buy regular stuff and I love the pretty coloured ones!

Leona, sounds like you're be nice and busy with your grandchildren and how exciting to be planning to see your parents in September. Hope you also get a break with your husband...there seem to be lots of deals on flights this days.

Lori, lots happening in the wedding dept by the sound...that date is fast approaching!! I know mama will be looking forward to having all her chicks together again!!

Had to call the grua today to tow the car to the garage...anyway when he arrived Joseph tried to start the car again and it sprung into action again...!! Anyway drove it to the garage just to make sure. One squirt of 3 in 1 oil...and that helped! Rest of the day was pretty non eventful. Summer house is on hold now until we get more spare cash....

Yesterday we finally broke into the 80's. Setting another record for latest in the season by ten days. Thunderstorm all night. Windy and cloudy today! Now that you have the weather report onto other things.

Did an impulsive thing last night and booked an airline ticket to see my parents in September. Haven't been to their house for a visit in years because of my fil living with us. It was just over $100 with all the fees and we figure I couldn't drive there for less. I booked through Alaska Airlines and it had to be booked today. Then heard on the news that Southwest Airline is also having lots of specials. Going to talk to hubby tonight and see if we want to plan on going somewhere together. We so need away time.

The Grands arrive tomorrow. Rejoicing that dd and sil will have two nights away. Hopefully the one year old will be okay with us those two nights. Then will have the two boys the another week. So got to get the house clean.

Surprise visit last night from friends who needed to borrow hubby's truck because his broke down and coming for the trailer today to haul his home. Their daughter was with them and sharing all her memories of being out our house. It was really fun listening to her. You would think my house was a magical place!

Good to hear from you Janet R. Whenever you find time to check in. I can't imagine the fun of three grandkids that close. Sounds like you are in project mode.
I can't believe I am getting a report on the amazing genie bra. I tend to be well endowed and probably need a little more coverage than that would offer but I am always glad to hear a first hand report. I have seen the informercial a few too many times.
Need to keep moving this morning. Headed to Fargo to play with my daughter after work today.Chatted with her last night and they got a lot of wedding stuff done yesterday. This is good because it was kind of past time. I think I have to make some inquiries about cake today and tomorrow and some decoration items need to be decided on but that is about it.
Now I am waiting to hear from my older daughter about travel arrangements and her plans for the coming year and get some arrangements made for getting my son home. We will feel like a family again if only briefly.

I just was sparked by Read your owner's manuel! I try to read it daily, first thing in the morning!

Everyone sounds busy on here. We were down in the upper 80's today, nice change, we have been in the 90's already and it has been very humid. Had a very busy day today planting some flower plants, a couple of bushes and working on her fish pond. We had to buy a new pump so we also got an outside filtering system now. Still working on getting it set right. We were given a pool, I'll have to post a pic when I can. Also, got some great new family pics done but having trouble downloading them on sparks right now.

Janet that was really a blessing finding a Christian worker! I know you get tired of running after materials but it will be done and you will see the finished project! Just like our Christian race, right!

I've had a pretty good day today. Only had one soda!!! I decided last night it was time to really get back to business and decided to start a sparkstreak -- 10 minutes of exercises a day. Made it one day, LOL getting ready to go do today's

Sorry I'm hit and miss on here. Having 3 babies right next door makes things very unpredictable around here! It is hard to believe the twins were 6 months old yesterday! Getting very active and vocal! Both loves to squeal and most of the time at the same time!

I just wanted to add a little mini commercial here, LOL For you that sees the add for the genie bras, Kevin ordered me 3 of them (mine came from the ahhhbra sight but they are the same thing) and they are the most comfortable bras I've ever had. I'm getting ready to order these too from genie bra. They are so light weight. I have trouble with the elastic in summer and this is one year I won't have that problem. They are not super supportive but they hold me more in front if that makes sense. Little thin but I don't like to wear "see-through" things anyway.

I do secrets of success regularly. I just wasn't expecting this to be about that. My brain is maybe still in Ghana or has been invaded by too much kitten.
Met a spark member today to walk. Havn't every done that. We had a nice time. She is a believer and seems really nice. May get together to walk again.

Actually read it in the devotional that I posted the link to! Too often we run here and there without spending our time with the Lord and in His word!

Think summer has finally arrived. We might actually hit 80 degrees for the first time this year. I really need to get busy. The grands are coming, but we are still trying to figure everything out. Trying to get away time for my dd & sil who have never gone away without their children and the oldest will be 6 next month.

Ok I am lost.
I will have to look at your sparkpage Leona. I am thinking we are talking about the bible but I am not sure about the 9 sparks or secret to success.
Sorry to hear you are missing your kitties. I am enjoying mine and she is doing pretty well yesterday and today.
Janet you've kind of got me on the whole cat thing as I am not by nature a cat lover and wanted a puppy. However there is something about this kitten so we'll see.
Hope your work continues to go well. Finding supplies and all can be a chore I imagine more so there.
Is Joseph wishing he could do the work himself? or just not liking the fuss.
I need to keep moving if I am going to get to the gym in a timely fashion.

Nice one Leona...always a Christian 1st choice!! you had 9 sparks when I looked there last night.
Hope you soon get the results, sounds like everything is settling again now as you didn't need that appointment. Does your husband normally have fairly low B/P? 'm one of those who do....

Lori...oh I'm sure Esse is lapping that up big time!! I'm sure you're right she'll soon make the transgression...I can see why she's so appealing...(from a non cat lover,) she is cute!!

Feeling so tired today, headache from too much sun yesterday, sneezing & throat from the dust around...but we're well into another day again of young Mario here. I've been to 4 different yards this morning for materials...just call me Gopher!! Poor Joseph's not coping too well so I have to keep interpreting for him, normally he's OK but he's tired too. Anyway the work is looking good so we praise the Lord for that!

Not sure when we will get the results, waiting to hear his doctor has them. Beings the pain has ceased we decided not to go with the emergency cardio consult. He is doing so much better, his blood pressure seems a little low so he didn't take the meds this morn and is monitoring it.

Missing my kitties this morn with all the talk. We lost them both last year. We brought them from Colorado with us and they were a few years old in 1998.

Have you read your owner's manual today? I posted a secret of success on it if you can't figure out what it is!! LOL

Think I have to run back to town to finish what I didn't get down yesterday. I hate going in on a home day.

Oh Janet Sounds like you recieved an unexpected blessing with your worker. Cherish it.
I am having a normal sort of day however that looks right now. I bought a tray of boneless skinless chicken thigh meat yesterday and cooked some of that up and ran it through the food processor with the broth and mixed in canned kitty food. So her food is ready for a few days. This she eats without coaxing. Just gobbles it up. I am pleased hopefully she can go to straight kitten food within a week or two without any balks. She is the runt of her litter and very tiny and skinny for 11 weeks old. I am hopeful.
Continueing to pray for your hubby Leona.

Leona, did you get the results of that test straight away? I know they tell sometimes.
Hope you got the B/P machine, I have one here too for Joseph, just sets his mind at rest mostly and better than unnecessary trips to ER.

Nellie, that is wonderful, I guess it will make your life a little easier.

Lori, things sound more promising with Abby cat I'm thinking as she's taking closer notice of Esse. I think they usually take on the roll of momma...hope she does, little kittens have a lot to learn. Sounds like a lot of raising funds is needed for both Emily & Andrew...I'm sure the Lord will undertake and answer their prayers, He knows the intent of their hearts is to serve Him. It's really lovely to hear about young folk who are looking to the future and to serve the Lord together when they're married.

Was an early start this morning...6.30am, I really don't like early starts but needs must sometimes. Well the young builder wasn't Bolivian he's from Ecuador and he's a Christian...such a quiet spirit it's a pleasure to have him here. As promised he arrived at 8am and got straight to work. Also bought his own water and food to drink!! We have had so many free loaders here expecting all sorts....he truly is a Christian with Christian ways. He even lowered his hourly price for us which will mean he will get more work because our small amount of money will stretch further.

I have a picky older kitty. Since she is hypothyroid and is pretty skinny, I have to encourage her to eat. Recently I got a new canned cat food, and lo and behold, she actually likes it!

Hey,
Hope the appointments went well today Leona.
I am working on the kitten.
She just turned up her nose at the food I made her. I left and left it sit with her for now. I will go and check on her again in a little bit.
She was out upstairs for a little bit today. Abby hissed a lot but didn't do anything and she did come and sniff at her a bit. We'll see how that goes.
Janet the joke is on me because I was going to be picky and adopt a perfect little kitten and it was going to be a calico. Hmm. I liked this little girl a lot though. We call her Essie. She seems to be catching on to her name.
Janet anymore now I take good nights of sleep when ever I can get them. Sometimes they are hard to come by.
Emily's commitment to Campus Crusade is for one year as an intern. They hope to go on staff full time but it will take some work to get there finances in order. They would also like to go to Ghana on a Stint team which is also a one year commitment and it would be in Accra working at campuses there to give the ministry in that area a boost. I am sure they would also get out to Haven of Hope. That might be a possibility. We'll see what happens the next month or so will tell a lot. They will be in Fargo this next year. If they apply to go to Ghana that would be another one year commitment. If they go on Staff full time as permanent staff they will be assigned to a campus somewhere in the midwest where there is need.
Yep that's what I know. I should get some walking in tonight. Have been a little slack with working out. Not however eating. Yeah story of my life lately.

The test is scheduled for 3pm today! Hubby is still very low on energy! Need to find a blood pressure cuff today to monitor it. I keep forgetting, might be the exhaustion level. Woke up with a headache. Maintaining, but not losing, but I am okay with that considering the past couple of months. Hoping to get losing soon though. Need to make some decisions soon about some stuff.

Hope you are all going to have a very successful week!

I slept very well again last night so am praising the Lord for that, guess Joseph didn't so he slept on.
I'm working on my plan is to continue on my grain free eating...yes I really mean grain free, totally!!! I'm on day 12 today and feel so good, not surprising, they never were my friend!! My weight has slowly gone back to goal weight but this time the inches have gone and as still going...PTL. I'm also totally off eating meat/ poultry too...far too many hormones in that stuff for me these day so felt it was time to call a halt. I'm still getting plenty of protein from fish, eggs, cheese and legumes,,,love all those and fires up my imagination to create new meals.

Leona, glad things are progressing along and you got to church yesterday too.

Lori, your kitty sounds like some work...hope she conforms to the right food, I know some people give their dogs human food...very strange. I know all these pets are different, I remember the dog that we had at home when I was a girl. My mum would mix dry dog biscuits, which he didn't like, into his canned food and he would careful dump the biscuits around the edge of his bowl on the floor!! lol Smart dog he was!!
Will this be Emily's first year of a volunteer worker for the crusade? How long does it last...just interested.

Yesterday was a pretty lazy day. We were going to go out for a special meal for Father's day but everyone had the same idea and places were backed up with waiting lines. So we picked up sandwiches instead and went for a drive to look at water. Funny lots of people were doing the same.
CC for Christ is a pretty huge college student movement. They work on campuses overseas as well and do some military and high school ministry. I know Emily's life has been changed by her involvement she has become a bold witness for God with a passion to share her faith and disciple others. I am praying for God's will to be done.
I think I am a little crazy to have gotten this particular kitten. She is the runt of her litter and wont eat kitten food.They said she had been peeing in her dish when offered kitten food. So far I have gotten her to eat some people food with wet kitten food mixed in and I am keeping a dish with a little dry kitten food out for her all the time hoping she will decide to nibble on it. However even if we can get her to switch to all canned kitten food it will be better. I think a little meat is fine but she needs the nutrition supplements that are in the kitten food. So we are working on it.
Lot's about me.
Leona glad to hear your hubby is getting along. Still praying for the treatment that will be coming.

Slept well last night, but still tired. Hubby woke up without chest pain. Hopefully he will be able to get the tests and consult tomorrow. Thanks so much for your support and prayers! He also apparently has some fatty liver issues, to tackle later. Was good to go to church this morning. We didn't make Sunday School as he was sleeping and I wasn't waking him up. His back is hurting from doing nothing.

Blessed day here, listened to a preaching CD that was rather short and then we studied the same book through for another two hours...God's Word is so rich!!
It's been very hot here again so have stayed in the air con and did some LS together, Joseph did some weights too...I'm thinking about getting some small ones to try.
This town internet connection really slow at times but I know SP pages can take a time to load, good test of my patience!!

Leona, thanks for the update...I think part of the stress and worry is the not knowing what caused things to happen. If it is a virus that's pretty rough that it can affect the heart like that. I pray you both get sleep and rest time, you surely need it.

Lori, I totally agree, a healthy lifestyle & diet are the key to most things not just cholesterol...we carry on working at it daily.
So you got a little one to love...sweet! I'm sure your cranky cat will come round when she/he is ready.
Is the C. C. for Christ for student aged youngsters? If Emily is working to a deadline for raising funds I should imagine that is stressful....praying the Lord moves many hearts to be generous. I once read in the "Azusa Street Revival" book that "When the people's hearts are right then they give freely to God"...how true is that?

That sounds good Leona, something treatable!
I am just doing my morning stuff and getting ready for the day.
We adopted a kitten yesterday and I am trying to spend time with her. She is adorable and very mischeivous. Typical kitten. Have her seperated from our old cat who is decidedly cranky about her being her. I hope she'll come around.

Thanks for your prayers and support! The doctor was here for about an hour today. Then I ran to fill the prescription, or course it didn't go smooth so ended up having to call his doctor and let them talk to him, it was written by the doctor in Montana. The good news is at this time there is not heart damage, there is no blood clot. It is diagnosed as acute pericarditis, the doctor will be calling to try and schedule him for a echo-cardiogram and cardiologist consult for Monday and then see him on Tuesday. It is probably a virus that will possibly last two weeks. We both need sleep! I am exhausted and he is tired of sitting around doing nothing! Thanks so much for your support and prayers!

This has been a eventful day for you ladies.
Praying for your family Leona. Hearts are tricky.
Jane I hope you get your carpenters and pagoda taken care of.
I will look at European Cho numbers. That makes no sense to me and I am puzzled.
I know you are right about changing guidelines. I think they have really pushed the reccomendations downward the past couple of decades. Looking at things a lot more conservatively. There is research to support a lot of it but . . .
I tend to believe a healthy lifestyle and diet has a larger role than just numbers.
When I said crusade I was refering to Campus Crusade for Christ which is a college student campus ministry that is world wide now.That is what she is raising support for. I think it is coming along but as is true with many ministries they raise support for oragnaizational overhead that is beyond just their ministry expense. It is coming along. She is working hard at it and has received some encouragement this past week.Between this and the wedding plans she is a bit stressed.
I am off to work out and meet a friend to walk and talk about Africa.

Leona so sorry to hear about your husband's heart problems, he did the right thing of course to get checked out. Praying for him and also your other family members, sounds like you've all a tough time of late. Think I'd be staying close by and snoozing a little. I've been in your situation too many times I'm afraid.

Lori, hard to compare our cholesterol figures because Europe probably uses a different set of figures but yes 3.1 is my total cholesterol. I too have high HDL, very low trigl. but the LDL was a tad high. I do know that's a trade off for high HDL...we plug on!!
That sounds very promising about Austin veering in the right direction, I'm still praying for him but along with you PTL thus far.
Praying too for Emily as she raises the much needed sponsorship, where will the Crusade be held?

Well the carpenter finally arrived at 4.30pm...he left at 8.40pm and had so many problems you would not believe...we now need a labourer to do some work on the pillars. Hopefully the one that the carpenter recommended, there is so little construction work now that young men will work quite cheaply. The whole issue really stressed Joseph yesterday and he didn't have a very good night either...I've been awake since 5am too. Doesn't bother me that but he feels drained today. Just staying home and chilling out really...

Got home just after midnight. Winding down now. We will be following up with doc next week. Don't know if he will want to see him or follow up with a specialist. Something is wrong with his heart. Apparently it is enlarged and has inflammation around it. He was started having some pain last night and continued and got worse the farther he drove. He was out of cell phone range so he kept driving until he got to an ER about and hour. He said if he would have seen a policeman or fireman he would have flagged him down. My phone would not connect with his and all I heard after 5 phone calls was stopped, Plains and hospital. My dd had lived there a couple of years and finally got a hold of the pastors wife and she called the hospital and confirmed he was there. Dd was able to get a hold of him on her phone. They released him and we had to drive 3 hours to get him.

It was been a long week with my brother with brain cancer having a seizure and refusing to go to the hospital (just wants to die), my nice getting hit so hard from behind while she was waiting to to make a left hand turn that it flipper her car on it's side. So grateful for God's protection through everything.

Hubby is back up sitting in the chair because he cannot get comfortable laying down. Not sure If I should leave him alone and go to bed or not.

Today has been a better day. Data entry is done at work. I got to move on to catloging today and had fun with that. NOt usually a fun things but these were different items and proved to be very simple. Made me pleased because I got a lot done in short order.
Janet it's not just in Spain that carpenters are difficult. We have always had issues with them.

Austin is doing a lot better these days. He is playing around with getting involved in a community church. This means he has a friend who is a believer who is involved and has gone a couple of times and is planning to join a bible study. He is just not quite getting around to following up on his intentions all the time but he is moving in a good direction and has befriended another believer. Big answers to prayer. Emily is home right now because she is working on raising support to be on Crusade staff this fall and she would say the same that he is doing a lot better.too.
what is 3.1 as a cholesterol number? Is that your LDL HDl ratio?
My ratio is good it's just the total that's an issue and the actual LDL number.
I am inclined to worry less about those when my HDL is as high as it is and my blood pressure and triglycerides are quite low.
I have looked at the spreads but I think I would have to consume more than I ever would for it to do me much good. I don't eat much bread.

I am not skilled to understand what GOD has willed what GOD has planned I only know at his right hand stands one who is my SAVIOR

Oh the Spanish are enough to try the patience of Job, as they say!! Those carpenters still haven't been to fit the pagoda!! Seemingly the boss keeps taking the van and so the young men can't get here! Shopping this morning and terribly hot out there. In one store Joseph was choosing a melon and it squelched all down his shirt...he was not pleased and complained to the supervisor!! She told him to take a melon for free!! LOL!! So that was a good conclusion!

Leona hope you slept better last night, nothing worse than lack of sleep I know.

Nellie, I'm actually eating grain free so not using any spreads but I have heard that those can help. My total cholesterol was actually 3.1...not high at all. My HDL was almost at the top of the range, Triglyceride just at the bottom end of the range. Personally I think the labs have changed the ranges, they did that with the thyroid testing too.

Lori, I agree that's a long time to sit and do just computer work, think all that concentrating would give me a headache too. How is Austin doing down at Cherry Point these days?

Been a day today.
I am still struggling to get out of bed in the morning since I have been home and work for the summer is all projects and new students and right now it's a lot of data entry and that is long for 4 hours straight. I think we are about caught up now though so tomorrow is probably inventory and cataloging which will be a welcome break for me. I had a headache when I got home today.
I have a dress that would work for Emily's wedding if I don't find something else. I am still looking. I think the dress I have is pretty casual but her wedding is not overly formal so it could work. I am shopping online a lot for something different. We'll see what I find. I know what size and style will work after trying so many dresses in Chicago.
I would like to find something with a little jacket but . . . a lot are a little to glitzy or way expensive.
Will post pics when I know for sure.
Off to bible study now.

I am on a semi-Mediterranean diet, plus using the spread with plant sterols and a medication called TriCor which is for both cholesterol and triglycerides.
