Random Stuff

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

I was thinking about a few things and thought I’d just throw them all in one post. I really like Greek yogurt. I eat it with a package of stevia and unsweetened coconut with either slivered almonds or flax seed. SO GOOD! I don’t know anything about this link but this is the tractor (type) […]

Tellin’ The Truth Thursday

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

  So, I’m just a couple days late…. I posted earlier this week how I don’t even recognize my life sometimes. The same goes for my body! I catch a glimpse of myself sometimes and think, “Phew! I don’t mind seeing myself in the mirror.” I was drying off after a shower the other night […]

Tropical Traditions~Aluminum Free Deodorant Review & Giveaway

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Tropical Traditions sent me a free sample of their aluminum free and chemical free deodorant to try. I’ve been using deodorant crystals and they do a pretty good job but I was happy to try this product. It has a really lovely fragrance–I tried the lavender variety. I was definitely happy with this. I did […]

Stevia Basil Lemonade

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

I saw this recipe for basil lemonade the other day. Hmmm…. that sounds weird to me but maybe it would be good? I’ve been drinking a lot of lemon juice/water/stevia this summer. I have basil in my garden–ok why not! I’ll give it a try. It was delicious! The basil makes it less tart in […]

Sometimes I don’t even recognize my life anymore. I’m glad–this is a good thing. But it hits me at odd times and I think what a difference a year makes. We all took a ride in the country on Saturday afternoon. As we rode along, James decided he was bored. I reminded him that this […]

Very Neat Story~Repost

Monday, August 15th, 2011

I was going to save this one for Works of God, but it’s too cool to save. Yesterday, Lee and I were driving around the town I grew up in. We drove past my family’s old home and saw a for rent sign. I said, “We should just call and see how much it is.” […]

Guess Where Lee Is Today?

Monday, August 15th, 2011

WORKING!   Thank you, Lord. I’m praying that this is a real job–not a “we’re done with you in a couple months” job, but even if it is I’ll have to trust the Lord! Thank you for praying for us!!!

Some photography tips for posing guys. You can take some tips whether or not you’re a photographer. Isn’t this cake SO PRETTY! I think I post […]

Missing In Action…

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Internet issues again–we’re changing service providers this week so I will be a bit scarce. They’re not coming ’til Friday but I may sneak to the library one or two days. We “think” Lee has a different farm trucking job. They sent him for a drug test this a.m. and said it was to start […]

“ The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety. “   George Muller What a quote to contemplate. What do you think? I know personally that everytime my stomach starts churning and the worry threatens to overtake me it’s not because I’m completely […]
