Tellin’ the Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

On Sunday, I moved into the slightly less strict phase of my plan. I get to eat lots more–just absolutely no sugar or starch. I had cheese again! Yeah–that makes me happy! I had avacado too….mmmm! I’m supposed to maintain the loss for 3 weeks and then I’ll move back into the strict phase again. […]

I have a few dear friends that I consider to be Titus 2 women in my life. They’re older than I am–farther along their journey. They have many years of walking with the Lord and always have such wisdom. One of these friends took me out to eat this summer so we could catch up. […]

Works of God~Count Your Blessings

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

How did God bless you this week? I’m thankful we’re still having nice summer weather. I’m thankful we’re starting school this week. Our 5th year! It’s a wonderful blessing that God has made a way for me to do this without having a husband at home. It’s been a lot of work, but a wonderful […]

From Outside the Frame

I found some good links this week! Here goes– Lots of great zucchini recipes on Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen blog.

Dragonfly Days

Photo credit: caysha from I feel like summer flew right by. We were very busy for most of it and it leaves me feeling tired and sad! We did a lot of fun things and spent time with our family. I’m not sad about that! I’m just sad it’s coming to an end. I […]

Sometimes Things Make Me Mad!

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

I don’t always share every little thing that frustrates me about our situation. If you stop and think for a minute what it would be like to see your husband on Saturdays for a couple hours and sit with him in Sunday School for 1/2 hour each week, you can imagine a lot of my […]

Tellin’ the Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

Well, if you’ve noticed I haven’t been faithful about this feature lately! I’ve not  been off my diet or going crazy. Our summer has been SO busy and I changed the diet that I’m doing. In my experience, people aren’t supportive unless you’re losing weight in a manner they approve of! If it’s not one […]

Any blessings to share this week? 1. James had a bug that kept him down for most of the past 2 weeks. Thankfully, he’s much better. Of course now I’m dealing with the aches and sluggishness! (sigh) 2. We went bowling with our friends last week. We used the coupon that James won at the […]

Susan May Warren~Licensed for Trouble

Saturday, August 21st, 2010

I was sent a free copy of Susan May Warren’s newest PJ Sugar book to review. I’ve been able to read the first two and have enjoyed all 3. Susan May Warrens writes in a fun easy to read style. Her mysteries always have a nice twist to them. I hate figuring out a mystery […]
