Adjusting Update

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

How is the adjusting going? Great! Thanks for asking. James and Lee are very busy. I know they are trying to catch up but they’re making me tired! The first 2 weeks were spent cramming in tons of activities. Last weekend, I said that we have to plan better and communicate about the week before […]

Tellin’ the Truth Tuesday~Round 2

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

This is what I get for typing posts first thing in the morning! I forgot a few things I meant to mention. 1. I’ve figured out that I will probably have to live low carb the rest of my life. I never thought that would affect me so much, but it’s made a huge difference […]

Low Carb Pumpkin Cheesecake

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Here’s a great recipe that we’ve all enjoyed–even Lee! He won’t even try anything if he thinks it could possibly be healthy. If he eats it you know it’s good. **You’d have to decide if the pumpkin is low enough in carbs for you. 2 8 ox packages cream cheese 1/2 c. xylitol (or sweetener […]

Tellin’ the Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

How are your health goals this week? I’m sort of getting to bed earlier. However, I’ve been reading in bed and technically staying up late while reading. I guess I’m resting in bed so that’s a bit better than staying up late. (Right?) Today starts my strict phase. It’s definitely work and I have to […]

Works of God~Share a Blessing

Monday, October 11th, 2010

Has God blessed you in any way this week? I hope so! We are blessed to continue to spend time all as a family. On Saturday, we stopped at a sporting goods store. As I followed Lee and James through the store, I thought, “Hey! We’re just like a normal family.” I know that may […]

From Outside the Frame

Friday, October 8th, 2010

Sweet little library card notebooks–right up my alley! I know I know! Defacing book pages makes book lovers gasp–just use an old ripped up book right? These leaves are sooooo pretty! Cute little paper pumpkins I like all these buntings that seem to be the rage now days–I’ve never taken the time to make one […]

Prison Is a Country Club~Right?

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

A week or so ago, a friend of mine put an email forward on her Facebook page. Basically, it said all elderly people should be put in prison and all criminals put in nursing homes. If criminals are in nursing homes, they’ll be locked in their rooms until the day they die. If elderly people […]

“Honey” Mustard Dip or Salad Dressing

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

Since a major part of my healthy eating plan is no sugar and no starch, I have to make my own salad dressings. You’d be amazed at the things you’ll find in the bottled versions–most of them are off limits for me. Here’s one I’ve made that I really like. I use it as a […]

8 Questions

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

Barbara at Stray Thoughts tagged me and I thought I’d play along. 1. What do you is the greatest benefit you receive from blogging? The one that most surprised me is the people willing to pray for us. I can’t put a value on that. It’s priceless. 2. What was your childhood nickname? How did […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

I’m on the low carb–no sugar & no starch phase this week. I was last week too! I have a few more days then it’s back to the strict phase. I’ve been getting to bed earlier most nights. I think all our excitement helps with that. I’m tired! I’m feeling good and enjoying the compliments. […]
