My lazy night

I don't choose chooses me. I allow myself one night after work a week to completely veg out or just go to sleep, sometimes as early as 8:00. I've always been one who needs her sleep. A cousin asked me today, "What's your secret for staying so young looking?". Well, I don't know about looking - but for feeling young, to me there's nothing like a good night's sleep. I'm glad to know that it helps weight control, since I need to keep my weight down due to Type 2 diabetes.
It's been a busy week already for me. Besides my job, I've been approached to do some sewing after an online friend saw some of my work. Keeping in contact with friends and family who are in Tornado Alley, one who's about to lose her mother, and one whose husband is in the hospital, and keeping them in my prayers has been another part-time job. It's one that I love because I know that I can trust God with my loved ones. He's proven it to me many, many times. If you're reading this and you haven't started following me yet, I hope that you will. God has alot in store for you, it's always exciting, and I'd love to go on your journey with you.
Sweet dreams in the Father's arms.

Modern medicine

Michael has been through so many illnesses and surgeries since 1997, that he feels like a pincushion! Before his knee surgery today, I reminded him that if he were born 100 years ago, he'd be walking like Grandpa Amos McCoy. Remember him? In fact, he was walking like Grandpa the last week or so! We are truly thankful that even with all of the troubles of our world, medicine is advancing so rapidly.

Tomorrow Michael will pick up our first order from Los Poblanos Organics

Many of us are becoming concerned and informing ourselves about nutrition and food safety. We have our own little kitchen garden with some lettuce and spinach this year. Maybe our strawberries will begin to sprout soon. I love to use these in my healthy smoothies, which I've started to make since being diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. They're really good for everyone! I recently discovered that the common day lily, every part of it is edible. I have one small one that should be spreading over the years, guaranteeing that we will never go hungry. How awesome is that?! The Creator has provided everything we need. The day lily is just one of those things. Check out for some great ideas as well as and to find out how some people are working to abolish hunger.

I'll let you know how the veggies are!

A New Direction

As you can see, I'm making a fresh start on my blog. I'd really like it to become a "place", not so much a page for friends old and new to come and share with me and with each other. I work stuck at a desk all day, and I've made some new online friends this year. Some I've met in person and some I have yet to. Until then, I want to at least stay connected in cyberspace. I know some exciting things will develop, because life is just...well, EXCITING! None of us knows exactly what the future holds, but I really hope we can go there together. It's so much more fun and satisfying with friends!
