I must have drifted off to sleep or something!

HaHa! It has been about 5 months since I posted something here! Good grief! Can we say busy?!

Oh well. Life gets in the way of many things, I guess! New grandson, husband retired, summer veggie garden, just daily ups and downs! What can I say? is good, too, and God has richly blessed us everyday!

Nothing too exciting to report. Pretty much same old same old. Oh! Wait! Remember back in January I said I would lose 52 pounds this year? Well, I think I later reported I had gained instead of losing? Well, I am back on track ( hopefully!) and have lost 20 pounds since around the first of July. Slow, I know! But better than gaining, for sure. Anyway....that just leaves me 3 months to do the other 32 pounds! Hmmmmmm...not sure I'll get the whole thing by the end of the year, but I'm trudging along with it anyway! Praying it will come to pass.

Well, this is short and sweet. Just wanted to stick my nose in and let you know I'm still alive!

God bless you richly is my prayer!

Good news!...and...( ahem) not so good~sigh~

We have that new grandson I talked about back in December! He was born on April 17, and he is a dandy! Mason Carter Jenkins weighed in at 7 lbs. 6 oz and was 19 inches long! Head full of dark hair , but I still can't tell what color his eyes are gonna be. He's almost 5 weeks old now and getting just a little spoiled, I think, but that's ok! Well, that's the good news!
Now for the bad! I said back in January I was going to do my best to lose at least 1 pound a week this year. Would you believe that instead I have gained about 7 pounds! Argh! Well, I'm not giving up! I'm still going to keep trying to get back on track! I need to get started going back to the walking track...we've had so much rain that there's been little chance, and we've had so much going on around here there's been little time to go! I know...excuses, excuses! Some one hold me accountable, please!

It's brand new year!

I don't do resolutions anymore...try to set some goals, but never make promises to anyone or myself. Seems everytime I try to begin a new project or plan anything too far in advance someone in my family gets sick or something happens to delay or change plans made. Sooooo....I've decided to follow the scripture Matt. 6:34 " Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. "
Oh, I know we have to plan for things to a certain extent, but worrying about it changes nothing! Some things we have a little control over , but truthfully, none of us knows what the next hour, not even the next moment, holds. So, I'll plan on planning things according to His will and not my own....
Christmas was good. Everyone was well, and we were able to get together, enjoy one another's company and eat! What we all love to do best. Now it's time for me to really start pushing back from the table. I have a goal...ahem...hopefully, of losing 52 pounds this *year* ....this year!...ha! I decided surely...surely, I can lose 1 pound a week! Surely that can't be too hard!
What do you think? One lousy pound a week? I'm gonna give it a try, at least!

Nothing ventured, nothing gained, they say! *sigh*
