The Challenge continues

So, it's day 3 for me in this challenge because I started late. Anyway, it's a real struggle to read the Word before looking at my phone, just is such a habit! Working through it and keep reading the Word even if it's not the first thing. I chose the book of Daniel to read this time. Taking my time in reading it. God called Daniel to obedience and his friends, put no other God before God and not to worship/ partake in idol worship in this strange land. What would you do, comply and go along or be a rebel and ask God for His protection?? I hope I would see the bigger picture and ask for God's help and go against the grain! Blessings! Puppy photos! Lady grabbed that grocery bag because it makes a noise! Goofy puppy!!

More in the life of everyday

So, this is an update. I have already spent $94.83 on groceries, I have $168 left for the month, see if I run over or make it! I spent the majority for 2 main meals, but I will have at least 4 days worth of meals. I found a website and the 2 recipes that I spent the $34 on are for chicken enchilada chili and pasta salad using ravioli 4 cheese, this will be my lunch for a few days. The website is chelseasmessyapron,com, she has some really interesting and easy recipes!
Update on my left leg and back, I plan on getting a shot in my back on the 17th of this month. I also intend to get another opinion of my back and if there is a remote possibility of help for it. Something beyond PT. My leg feels like shin splints 24/7, the pain is enormous! I feel like crying most days and just suck it up! Having the puppy is hard, as I can't keep up with her and she needs to be on a leash now, it's hard most days! Blessings!

New Year, New Look

So, the new year is here and I'm hoping to be better in keeping this blog updated. So wish me luck. I intend to set some goals and please keep me accountable!
1. For the next 30 days to keep a ledger of what I spent on groceries, so that I can budget better the rest of the year! So, I gave myself a $250.00 allowance for January to spend on groceries. I need to realize that toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies are not in that budget, as I have for years clumped everything together. So this is a lesson in separating my budget.
2. Resting better, I sleep like crap! I have for many years and I think that is part of my weight problem. So this is the year to get more than 5-6 hours a night!
3. See another back doctor for a second opinion on my back and how to help it!
4. Dote on Gordon more than before, the kids say he's spoiled, but that is my doing and I plan to spoil him more, he's 71 and time is precious!
5. Join a girls Bible study! Hopefully I will find one soon!
So there's a few goals and that's not all, but it's a good start!
I hope to do something very special for someone, just waiting on the Lord for guidance! 
Lady at 12 weeks! She's a fun puppy, getting into trouble and licking us a lot! Puppy kisses are the best!

Happy Thanksgiving!

 I hope that all of you enjoy a day with family and friends during this weekend! We celebrate on Saturday as the guys hunt on Thanksgiving and they are pretty tired to celebrate much with family! So, we just changed the day! Kurt brought 4 pies from Bakers Square and I' m doing the rest! It's easy peazy! Turkey, stuffing or dressing, jello salad, potatoes, bakery rolls, and of course, gravy!
So, here's to enjoying the day! Being so thankful for family, our country, men and women who serve  our country in some sort of service(police, service men, firemen, and EMT's, this includes women). Thankful to God for living in this country! Blessings!!

Annual Craft show, year 14 for me

I figured out the other day that I have been making and selling my Mom's fudge for 14 years. No wonder after pan number 6, I'm all in, but there's more to do!! :) Anywho, I went yesterday and as always had a great time! The other vendors are so remarkably wonderful and fun to see again! Although, I live in the same area, some of these wonderful ladies I just don't see. So here are some of the pictures from yesterday, Enjoy!
Joni's items , so cute!!
Deb's ponchos! Quite a selection!!
Mom's fudge samples that I made, of course!
