Prayer Answered

Friday, August 03, 2012


I had mentioned here to several people to pray for my SIL who is my husband's youngest sister. She has been through breast cancer and is over a 5 year survivor..well she got a bad report from her mammogram and also ultra sound and was sent to Little Rock to the cancer center doctor to do some kind of biopsy..well she called after her appointment today and is not going to have a biopsy after all..it seems that fatty tissue has built up in the area of the mammogram that showed a spot..But since she has been having problems from the nerve damage that was done when she had lymph nodes removed and also partial masectomy ..they do suggest she have a breast reduction..so she is looking at surgery with 3 week down time..she teaches school and is going to wait until Christmas to have it..
But the good news is the cancer has not returned..and I'm so so thankful..there were so many who had her on their prayer lists and I do so appreciate it and prayer does work..God is a healing God..Thanks.

what I made today

Thursday, August 02, 2012



I'm in a round robin yahoo group of just 5 people..We all are making sewing box kits..we decorated our own boxes and then are doing the round robin on the things we put in it..I have passed on my needlebook which is a bird theme in aqua and reds..It was a lot of fun to decorate this box and may have to make others for gifts.

Laugh for the day

Wednesday, August 01, 2012


I thought this was so funny and wanted to share with you...But sometimes it seems like this is true..we are what we eat..and how much we eat..

Feeling better today but still being lazy..temps are in the low 100F's..which is better than the 112 we had one day..but still not good..managed to get 40 minutes of exercise in and ate within my calorie range so doing all right.

Under the Weather

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Not sure if it the heat we are having, having to stay in and from a/c to heat or just tired from all the canning and blowing and going, but I haven't felt good all day today. I've not felt like doing anything..I did paint my toenails and started covering a box for a sewing kit but the rest of the time I'm just laid around and read of been on the internet. I did get a walk in twice today..once outside early and once inside..My joints are also really achy..so going back to my book and going to bed early..tomorrow will be a better day.

    Sorry you haven't felt well all day. You have been working so hard with all of the picking, and canning, and freezing, no wonder your body needs a day of rest. I hope you feel more like yourself tomorrow.

Congrats on getting in your walks!

    Sometimes we just need to take it easy and slow the pace down and give in to some rest. Great going getting the walks in even with the achy joints. Overall it sounds like you had a pretty good day.

    I hope you got a good night's sleep. I can't believe all the canning you have been doing. It is exhausting just reading about it...can't imagine how sore you must be from all that standing.

The good part though is you will have all that lovely food to eat and share as presents in the months to come.

Enjoy your visit with your sister!
