emoticon Good afternoon my dear spark friends,
Hoping you all are having a nice day today. Today is cloudy and overcast and cold around 38. There is a chill.in the air. I'm doing a load of laundry today.
Kora is napping downstairs on the love seat she claims is hers. LOL...
Kevin is still studying for the certification course. So far he is doing well.
He has orientation two days 3/16 and 3/17 for the post office.
It will be all day affair so we booked a hotel nearby for Sunday onto Tuesday.
It is two hours away without traffic. Just made more sense to stay overnight .
Hoping that all goes well for him.
emoticon emoticon a good strong workout at Curves this morning.
Then we went to Dunkin for a nice cup of decaffeinated toasted almond hot coffee with almond milk.
I plan on celebrating my Dad's birthday with him on Sunday at Outback.
He turns 94. We will pick him up and drive him home.
My cousin is taking.him out on his actual birthday on Saturday.
We will then celebrate Kevin's birthday and Justin's wish is the day before my Dad's and my Dad's birthday .
My youngest son Kevin turned 29, Justin turns 30.
I still feel young even though they are getting older.
Hoping I lose weight tomorrow at weight watchers workshop.
Trying hard on my weight loss journey.
Kat praying for you.....
Take care and prayers all around..
By the way Kevin took the final online for the first online certification course and passed.
He just started the second online certification course.

Good afternoon

After a fun-filled, food-filled weekend, I'm back on track! Desserts is my downfall every time. Today is a new day. My elderly friend, Mary, called and asked me to pick up some prescriptions and bring it out to her. So i did that. Other than my walk this morning and that errand, I've been home all day.

Raw chia seeds are crunchy and a mild nutty flavor. Drink plenty of water if you eat it raw.

Cooked, it can work as a thickened.

Nutritional values is very similar to flax seed and easier to use. Your body can't breakdown flax seed unless its ground up. Flax seed also loses its nutritional value of you cook with it.

SP has a food showdown article that compares the 2 seeds.

Good evening!

Potluck dinner today was good. I did really good until I looked at the dessert table. It tasted good. I'll watch it this week. I made a chicken and quinoa casserole. It was easy. It had chicken, quinoa, chicken broth, carrots, onions, celery and chia seeds.

Quinoa (pronounced like Keen-wah) is a South America (I think Brazil) ancient grain. Its only been available here in the US the last few years. You cook it and use it like rice. My husband likes it better than rice.

Good afternoon!

Busy day. I stopped to relax. I'm making a chicken and quinoa casserole for a potluck tomorrow after church. Tonight we going to friends home for lasagna and a movie. Ugh! I'll have a protein shake before we go tonight, then I plan to have a very small serving of lasagna. Foodwise, this is a difficult weekend! But it will be fun!

Vicki, glad your back is continuing to improve. It is a long haul isn't it? I had back pain for about 6 months last year. Glad to be pain free now.

I like "Good food choices are good investments". What better investment than one made to get or stay healthy! As I get older I realize how very important health is. I don't think I valued my health enough in my younger years.

Kat, my kids always like "toad in the hole" which is what we called Roy's egg in a hole. It was just something different and that made eggs and bread fun for them. I like it too.

Watched the exfinity race today. Love to see those new young guys win!

Good morning, I'm up early and watched a lovely sunrise this morning. We are going to have a great day, not a cloud in the sky and the ocean is so blue.

Tonight my sister flies in. I'm so excited! She is landing in Pensacola so we will drive there to pick her up and then we will go to dinner on the way home. Can't wait; we will love being together for a whole week. I feel really lucky because we had several days with her when we went to North Dakota in October. There have been years when we didn't see each other at all so it is nice to see her twice in 4 months!

Denise, glad that things are moving forward for Kevin. Sounds like Justin is having a lot of fun. He must be skiing; Vermont is beautiful at this time of year. My husband was born in Burlington while his father was attending University of Vermont. He has lots of family there that we visit every summer when we camp in New Hampshire.

Bea, Glad you guys had a night out. We stayed in for Valentines but Mal brought me flowers and I made Steak and a pasta salad. We reminisced for awhile about the many Valentines Days we have celebrated. Good memories....so many good memories!

So...not much planned for today. I need to get some groceries in for the next few days and neaten up the condo a bit. We are not very messy at this age. Mal has never been messy and, especially down here, I don't have any sewing or craft mess....still little things accumulate as all of you know.

I hope you each have a great day. Prayers all around.

Yes finally some good news for Kevin regarding the post office .
He is planning on speaking.up at the orientation to be sure that they don't mess up again.
It seems one lady in personnel messed it up.badly. They had her call him to aplogize.
By the way so far good news from the dermatologist specialist we saw. She said the pathology report she felt was not done right. She thinks it truly was read wrong and was used as a scare tactic. Yet to be sure she will request the slides and have Columbia Presbyterian pathology department look at it. So keep me in prayer still until we get their results. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well.
Justin is away with his girlfriend Maria in Vermont. Meanwhile we are taking care of Kora.
Happy Valentine's day tomorrow. emoticon
I plan on getting my nails done on Saturday afternoon.
Have not heard from DJ has anyone else heard.
Kat when was your surgery scheduled. Praying for you.
Wanda hope that all is going well for you and Mal.
Vicki hoping all is going well for you and Bob.
Bea hoping all is going well for you and your husband.
Have a nice day everyone.
Hugs.....

Good afternoon

I took my elderly friend to Zootown for a doctor appointment. She had an ultrisound on her shoulder to see why it hurts so bad. It came up with no problems except weak muscles. She's really disappointed. They did do a steroid injection into her shoulder and is suppose to call the doctor in a week and tell how her shoulder is feeling. I told her that she needs to act her age. She's almost 80 years old and does the same things she did when she was in her 30s. She's always been a hard worker. They can't do an MRI on her because she has an artificial shoulder

Dentist appointment went as good as it can for dental work lol It was just a teeth cleaning. Yes, Mary is definitely easier than Bernie. Also, Mary and I have been good friends longer than I've known Bernie. Bernie is doing ok. She will probably have a hip replacement soon. Ugh!

Hi Everyone!

Good news, Denise that Kevin is starting his orientation. Young people today want everything to happen immediately and that is understandable but sometimes that just isn't going to happen. You do a good job keeping him on an even keel. Glad he is going to be able to work in the area he wants. Hoping you will have good news at the doctor's too.

Sure do wish I could serve up beans and cornbread for you, Kat! I'd have to have an extremely long reach though. We hope to be in Arizona next year though so maybe we'll get a chance to meet for a meal.

Bea, I don't envy you the trip to the dentist but I hope you and Mary have a nice time. She is easier than Bernie, right? How is Bernie doing?

Vicki, thinking of you and Bob a lot especially since we are in Florida. Titusville is a long ways from here though, over 8 hours and I can't stand the thought of another long drive right now. It is bad enough that we will be trekking our way back to Ohio in two weeks. Hope everything is going we'll with you though.

Prayers all around, anyone heard from DJ?

I'll be leaving soon to travel to see the dermatology specialist at of our area. We will travel over an hour but she is an expert in the field . She is associated with two well known Cancer hospitals. So second opinion is warranted in this case to rule out Cancer.
Praying for good results. Appointment is at 2:30 pm but over an hour away.
Kat praying for you also.....
Kevin is still studying hard for his courses.
He has orientation bright and early on March 16th for the post office job.
They had messed up big time and he had to advocate and argue a bit to get the right placement area. Gosh it's crazy...
Oh well if I feel up to it I'll check in later today.

Good afternoon my dear spark friends,
Thinking of all of you dear spark friends fondly today and always. Hoping you all are having a nice day today. Today is sunny and 43 here with slight chill in the air.
I went to my weight watchers workshop this morning and I stayed the same . At least I did not gain. Anyway I'm trying to stay hopeful for tomorrow. I just feel that sometimes we need a second opinion. I want to be sure that there is no Cancer. Pathology report said atypical squamous proliferation. Only problem is this lab has made several serious mistakes on my blood tests in the past. But I'll just pray my way through this diagnosis.
Kat praying for you also.
Wanda hope that all is going well for you and Mal.
Vicki hoping all is going well for you and Bob.
Bea hoping all is going well for you and your husband and Malia.
emoticon emoticon a good strong workout at Curves this morning.
Justin bought me a candle coconut vanilla scent , and a tko slimmer belt, and a pink water bottle. This is for my Valentine's gift and for all that I do.
Yesterday was Kevin's birthday and he turned 29.
Justin leaves to go to Vermont tomorrow.
Kora is napping downstairs right now.
Praying for my son Kevin and my Dad and my family also for Myself.

Gosh Vicki, I've tried to be awesome all day but I'm not sure it worked! LOL It is a good plan though so I'm going to try again tomorrow.

Kat, disappointing results but I'm glad they caught it early. Treatment will be nothing compared to what you've been through the past two or three years. Enjoy your movie with Roy. Popcorn anyone??

I seldom snack but for me a movie means food. So bad.

Today was good here. I read and rest most of the day but did get some laundry done. We went out to dinner. I had Red Beans and rice, a southern specialty. It was good.

I'll be watching for that First for Women too, Bea. Good for you!

Today is a gray day, windy but warm. I think the high will be 73 degrees We are really happy with that compared to an Ohio winter. FWB is a pretty small town so we are out of the touristy area. There are a lot of snowbirds here, good restaurants and convenient shopping. If we want a little more excitement or are willing to take on the traffic, Destin is near by.

We are living quiet though here on the beach. I'm doing most of my own cooking, a little housework, lots of reading and resting.

Just kind of sailing along at this time of my life.....it is all good.
Prayers all around

Good Evening

It was a normal Sunday with teaching Sunday School and attending the worship service. There was a ladies luncheon afterwards. I stayed for that. After I got home, I walked for about 2 miles. I walk a little less on Sunday. I've been relaxing since then.

I got the word this last week after a series of emails, phone call, and sending before and after pictures. FIRST FOR WOMAN magazine is going to do an article on me. Its to do with all the walking I've done and lost weight doing it. They also might put some in there about my recent knee replacement. It will be on newsstands from May 21- June 10. They want to come here to take pictures of me. So I sent her some of my doctor appointments so she'll plan around it.

Wanda, Thanks for the indo! I'll keep that in mind. The therapist said to do the stretches 3 times a day. Some days I do that, but most of the time, its just twice a day. But at least I do it! My husband over heard a couple of therapist talking (while I was getting therapy) "If they would only do a little exercises at home..." I was a frustration to them. Very few patients do the home exercises. I still do them, even though I'm done with the therapy.

OH MY!! I should not stay away this long. Taking me forever to catch up on my reading!

Denise, and Kat....both of you with skin cancer? What kind? I know there are three different kinds and that melanoma is the worst because two of my children have had melanoma. Malcom has had squamous (the middle one I think) and basal (the least dangerous). Depending on where they are on the face, Denise, I think a Mohs surgeon can probably take care of it without scarring but I think squamous is often treated in other ways too. Just make the best treatment decision for you; I know it is scary.
Kat...You are just dealing with so much. Did the RA meds cause the ulcer? I know that can happen. Now the skin issues too! Too much, friend!

Bea....YAY! Good news that you are off the PT! You worked hard. You PT is right about keeping that leg straight but I'm not sure that a year ends it. I had my knee replacement at least 7 years ago, maybe 8 and I still find that if I forget about straightening that leg every day, it still starts to tighten up. That surprises me but it remains a bit of an ongoing effort. I don't do the exercises but I do make sure that I fully straighten my leg when I'm walking or sitting.

Glad your father is talking to you again, Denise. I know that has been hard for you. Wow 94!

We have been having some temps in the 70s and it feels so good. We have also had one really stormy day with damage not far from here but none right here. For us it was really just a day to stay indoors and I didn't mind that at all.

Today we went to a pottery festival, then to lunch at a pub next door to the pottery. It was fun; the sun was shining and I must admit that I added a couple of pieces to my pottery collection. My oh so funny husband said, "You know these two pieces are the ones that are going to pull the cabinet off the wall, don't you?" I just said, "You hung those cabinets so I know they are there to stay!!" I just bought two tiny bowls - good size for fruit or small desserts. I was really impressed with the potter's work. It is always fun to meet people who use their creative talents.

Tomorrow is Sunday; I hope to go to church and tomorrow night we are having dinner here with friends.

Prayers all around, and around, and around...my friends, we have to get healthy!

Good morning my dear spark friends,
Thinking of all of you fondly today and always. Hoping you all are having a nice day today. Today is sunny and 38 and a bit chilly outside. Kevin and Tom went for a ride for Kevin to practice his parallel parking . Still waiting on the post office to move forward regarding his start date,etc... His job coach had Kevin send them an email again yesterday.
He is moving along with the certification courses. He studies real hard and does well so far.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
emoticon Skinny thinking going on here today.
Kora is lying down by my side chewing on her nylabone. I have to watch her because she is a hard chewer. She is a funny puppy.
Justin called lastnight to tell me they arrived at the hotel in Colorado.
Unfortunately they were stuck in a bad blizzard and had to drive over nine hours .
They had landed in Denver and drove to Vails in Colorado.
They were both tired out. I told him to stay safe and be careful.
emoticon Breakfast this morning was liquid egg whites with mushrooms and spinach and peppers. I had a multigrain light Thomas English muffin with olivio butter spray.
A satisfying breakfast for me.
We plan on getting our haircuts later today.
Hoping to get to Mass tonight.
I'm doing a load of laundry now.
I had a very nice talk last night with my Dad for first time since November.
He is genuinely concerned about my face and glad I'm getting a second opinion.
He said it was a smart move on my part.
Anybody have plans for Valentine's day?
I see the specialist the day before .
Probably celebrate Kevin's birthday .
Hoping to get my nails done next Saturday .
Kora is high energy this morning and were not.
The life of a puppy ha ha....
Have a nice day everyone got to run out soon...../Denise

Good Afternoon,

Now I'm the taxi for Malia ... At least its a temporary thing. For now, we're waiting for the insurance adjuster to act. I walked this morning a little slower than I usually do because of the snow and ice. Mostly the streets were good, but there was a few icy spots. Not much else going on today.

Good evening

Another bad day! Ugh! It snowed last night and Malia was coming home from work and a do ran out in front of her and she braked and the car swerved. She went off the road and ran over some large rocks. Her car looked good, but under the car, its a mess! Her transmission is messed up and who knows what else. So for now, she's without a car.Then this afternoon, I told her the important this is she's OK!

Bernie's ride to a doctor appointment didn't work out, so I ended up taking her to Missoula. She got the word that she needs a hip replacement. That means she will need MORE rides. The roads were slick in one spot, but good the rest of the way.

Congratulations Bea on getting all your pt completed. Also on being able to get your leg straight. Good Job!! All those home exercises and stretches really paid off for you.
Keep doing the stretches and other exercises You Can Do It!! Your determined to get things fully healed. Walking is great exercise. Glad you enjoy it.

Good Afternoon

Here I am with PT completed! Today with no help from the therapist, I managed to get my leg perfectly straight. He was doubtful that I would be able to do it because I walked with that knee bent for 2 and half years. But I did my home exercises and stretches with that leg and it all paid off! He also warned (again) that if I stop doing the stretches now, that the muscles would probably cause that leg to bend again. After a knee replacement, its not totally healed for about a year, so thats the time frame of how long I need to do them. I CAN do it! And I WILL do it!

Its cold and cloudy here and its suppose to snow. But no snow yet.

I started walking for my health and was mad at the doctor because he said I should. Now I just plain enjoy it. Its a lifestyle now.

Keep me in prayer the results are in and I can't make much sense of it.
I'm going for a second opinion on Feb. 13th with a top notch doctor in dermatology .
She is highly recommended by my cousins uncle who was a top notch doctor in one of the hospitals in the city .
I need peace of mind before I schedule any surgery on my face . Ugh...
Tomorrow is my.weigh in day at weight watchers workshop.
Wish me luck I'm trying hard.
Didn't get much.sleep last night .
I did do a good strong workout at Curves this morning.
I have to try to relax.

Kat hoping all works out with the frozen pipes situation.
Kora senses I'm upset and is trying to give me a boxer hug as I type.
Take care my friends.
Vicki so sorry if I upset you in my spark mail.
Thanks for the friendship here.

Hi everyone,
I truly wish I could say I'm having a nice day but I'm not.
I did a good strong workout at Curves this morning.
I just got an extremely upsetting phone call from the dermatologist who did a shave biopsy on my face . That was done back on January 16th. Anyway he had not sent any results to us at all. He proceeded to tell my husband and I that he thinks it is atypical sqamous situation.
In his opinion but not positive that it is. Then proceeded to say when we asked if possible the lab result came out wrong that he wasnt sure. He then proceeded to tell me I must go to a Mohs surgeon . Well of course I took a ride over to the facility where I saw this doctor in my area to get a copy of the results. They told me he had not signed off on them yet.
Well now I'm burning angry and so is my husband . So I filled out a form to have the results picked up at their local office here. I also said I want results asap sent to the patient portal.
This is upsetting and I intend on getting another opinion before or if I schedule any surgery .
Ugh..... emoticon
Hoping that all works out for me.
Hoping you all are having a nice day today.
Praying for my son Kevin and my family also my Dad and myself.
I just won't quit with my weight loss journey.
Trying.real hard.
Take care everyone.....
Sorry I'm just upset right now.

Good Morning

Super Bowl party was fun, but I didn't watch much of the game. We played card games instead.

I did some jogging on my morning walk. I did better with that than I thought I could, 3 blocks per mile, which totaled half a mile. I won't do that every day. Tomorrow I'll walk, but not jog.

I'm off to Zootown for the day. My elderly friend Mary has a doctor appointment.

Good afternoon

I taught Sunday School, then attended Church Worship Service. We ate out, for lunch. When we got home, I changed my clothes, then did my walk. Soon I'll go to a Super Bowl party. We don't call it that, because of copy right. But that's what it is. I could use something upbeat. It's been a difficult week. 1st the cat died, then brother in law died. We learned that Robert's cousin is not doing well and may die. Yesterday i learned that friends (husband and wife) both have brain tumors. Glenn is almost done with treatment and Vicki is just starting. Vicki introduced my husband and I. It all leaves a person overwhelmed!

The ground hog in Montana saw his shadow today. I don't care what happens in Pennsylvania lol

Good morning my dear spark friends,
Thinking of all of you dear spark friends fondly today and always. Hoping you all are having a nice day today. Today is cloudy and overcast and around 38. We had some rain in our forecast for possibly later today. Well it is February 1st a whole new month with new possibilities. I'm working very hard on my weight loss journey. I just won't Quit!! It's been a struggle at times but I'm very determined . Kora has been a challenge because she is a very active puppy. She just is running around our house most of the time . She gets her second wind around 11pm. Beware she will run wild around the dining room table. Last night we watched a good movie on UP tv. Kora curled up beside me on the sofa downstairs.
Justin went away with his new girlfriend for the weekend. So we the grandpawrents are watching over Kora.
Bea hoping Malia's visit with her stepmother goes well. Hoping your visit with Robert's sister goes well also. Once again sorry for the loss of your brother in law and Malia's cat.
I'm doing a load of laundry this morning.
Hoping to get to Mass tonight.
Tomorrow is Super bowl do any of you have plans?
We are planning weather permitting to.go see a good friend play from 2pm to 5pm .
He will be at a local winery near us . Then come home and eat and watch the game.
Kat hoping all is going well for you and Roy.
Vicki hoping all is going well for you and Bob.
Wanda hope that all is going well for you and Mal.
Bea hoping all is going well for you and your husband and Malia.
Peggy hoping all is going well for you.
Everyone else hoping all is going well.
emoticon Skinny thinking going on here today my friends.
emoticon to all of you.

Good Afternoon

Malia left this afternoon to see her parents for the weekend. After her cat died, she wanted to see her mother. Actually, her step mother, but she's been the only mother she's really known. So it'll be quiet here. Tomorrow, we plan to go see Robert's sister and give he some comfort.

I might talk hubby into going to a seafood buffet tonight. Its a little expensive, but really good. and i eat way too much. He probably won't go for it lol

Wanda yes, loss is hard. I miss the little stinker (the cat) She definitely had a Cattitude!

Losses are always hard, aren't they Bea. For Malia I'm sure the cat had become family. I'm so sorry for the loss of you brother-in-law also. Take Care

Good afternoon

I did my morning exercise, then went to TOPS. I was one that got there early,so I could walk with others. That's fun to do. I turtled again this week, which is better than gaining like I thought I would!

I got a good workout yesterday at PT. I can tell today by the sore muscles. It's mostly the buttocks and my calves. I think he expects more of me because he know I'm an exercise. He also said yesterday I have a high tolerance to pain.

Thanks! I'll sure let everyone know when/if the article comes out in Woman's World. It'll be posted in each of my teams, on my status, and in the community feed. If you miss it, it'll because youre not in SP anymore!

Hoping that all is going well for you and Mal.

I'm fine . Unfortunately I was up a pound this morning at weight watchers workshop.
Probably due to sodium . I'm trying to drink water today to flush it out.
Kora is keeping us busy today.
Our weight watchers workshop was all about our mindset.
Great workshop .
I made Tilipia and small trio potatoes for lunch today.
Hoping to get in a good strong workout at Curves later today.
I got in 10,500 steps yesterday afternoon.
Oh trying hard on my weight loss journey.
Praying for my son Kevin and my family also my Dad.
My Dad had fallen after being hit by a door coming out of his doctors facility.
He has some blurred vision so my sister took him to.the eye doctor.
He can not see well out of the one eye. He is not driving right now.
My sister plans on taking him for follow up with the eye doctor again.
Got this news from my cousin . My sister does not communicate with us at all.
Anyway we have been praying for him also. We even sent a Get well card.
Have a nice day everyone.
/Denise

WOOHOO!!!! Awesome Bea! I just think it would be so neat to read about you in Woman's World. You have a good story and lots of women would learn and be inspired!

Denise, so pleased for Kevin!

Always good to hear from you Kat!! Our weather has warmed up a bit. My daughter is flying in on Saturday and will be here for 4 days so I'm glad of the warmer weather. The ocean is wild today, but it isn't raining. We have had several sunny days so a gray day is okay today.

Prayers all around my friends!!

Good afternoon,

I had PT this afternoon. The therapist says one more week of therapy and he'll let me go. He's also confident that I will continue with the home exercises.

I took Malia's cat to the vet yesterday. The cat has pancreatitis. Malia was in tears last night. We stopped into see how she is today. She's acting more like a cat should act. But they want to keep her longer to make sure she's eating, drinking and peeing good before they release her.

Here is my surprise that I mentioned on Friday. I was contacted by a writer of Woman's World. She wanted to do a story on me with losing weight and walking and she wanted some before and after pictures. She's going to write the story and submit it to her editor. So we'll see what happens.

I will be offline most of today while Kevin does the orientation and screening for the post office. Wishing him Luck and keep him in prayer please. Thanks.
Chat later if I can.
Busy day. ,Justin and Kora moved in lastnight.
Wow Justin had load of stuff so somethings are in our garage for now.
It will all work out.
Tomorrow is my weigh in and hoping I did ok.
Take care everyone.



Well just got back a little while ago with Kevin. Good part is that fingerprinting is done .
They did that today. The human resource person he saw at the Job fair was there.
She told Kevin it was there fault in the past that they had rescinded him.
He is in good standards and she said he would be placed in the post office in New Jersey closer to us. He still will probably down the road have to take the drivers test.
That will require turns, and parallel parking in between and around set up cones.
He is a little anxious about that but Tom is practising with him as much as possible.
We want him to pass when his time comes.

It's been a long.day so far. I'm a bit tired ....

Good Afternoon

I really slept in this morning, so I didn't do all of my exercises this morning. I did some though. I'll finish that later. I also walked/jogged 2.5 miles. That was a good workout!

I was getting a rash from my Fitbit. It's from the band. So I lined the band with paper tape. I'm hoping that works.

Good afternoon my dear spark friends,
Thinking of all of you fondly today and always. Hoping you all are having a nice day today. Today is sunny and around 42 here but a bit of a chill in the air.
Yes today is the big day . Justin and Kora moving in with us this afternoon.
Yes Kat we did get the painting done on Friday. We just had touch up on the shelf in the Rec Room. That's basically where Justin and Kora will sleep. We used non toxic low fumes white paint. Works best for dogs, humans, and me especially. I just can't have the fumes from the paint . I'm allergic to chemicals like that.
I cleaned the bathrooms and Tom is vacuuming the house again.
emoticon emoticon I did a good strong workout at Curves this morning.
Then stopped at dunkin for a decaf toasted almond hot coffee with almond milk.
It's only one point on my ww plan.
Anyway I've been trying hard on my weight loss journey.
Watching my portion control and drinking my water and exercising.
Tomorrow is a big day for Kevin . We go to New Jersey for him to get fingerprinting done and orientation , etc for the post office job. We are not sure if their will be a driving test but he has been practicing driving . Parallel parking is not the best but he is trying hard.
Then he still is working hard on the certification course he is taking..
He asked that you keep him in prayer. Thanks loads.
emoticon Skinny thinking going on here today.
emoticon emoticon emoticon
emoticon to all of you dear spark friends.
emoticon for Kevin and my family also my Dad.
emoticon Oh boy Kora will be here soon .....Curious and playful puppy.
For those that don't know she is a boxer . Loads of energy so never a dull moment .
Hoping you all are doing well.
Kat glad to.hear the good news about Karl.

Good Evening!

We're home. We had lunch at Burger King because the grandkids like it. I usually order a salad with grilled chicken. I make it healthy and I like it. Today, I was told they discontinued grilled chicken. All they had was the crispy chicken (aka coating with just enough chicken so they can call it chicken) and I told them thats junk food. So I ordered a small hamburger. It was NOT filling. We may never go back.

We had a good weekend but way too short. Joshua was really happy with his birthday gifts. We got home some Star Wars Legos. We didn't know he's into Star Wars now. lol

Hello!
Good to hear you have had good weather and a nice day, Kat. Glad you got out! Hope you have heard from Ann. I know it is hard to wait for news.

Bea, it is great that you can be at your grandson's party. It means a lot to him too, I'm sure and the memories will last a lifetime. Being a Grandma is such a great privilege.

Denise, good for Kevin. He is working hard to meet his goals.

We went to an outdoor flea market today, weather in the 60's here too. It is rainy now though and cooling down - feels like that wet, dank cold that goes straight to your bones! Still it is much better than the weather in Ohio so I'm happy to be here.

Prayers all around!

Wanda
