I finally got some winter weather but it was not very much snow which made me a little sad. I really wanted to see some big snowflakes falling. I did pray that we did not get any freezing rain. I did not want the farmer to have to worry about the power going out with us having big chickens. I am so ready for these chickens to leave. 

I have been feeling a little better mentally this week. I have been trying to give my worries to God and pray for everything. I have made myself walk on the treadmill for the last two weeks not every day but I did walk.

Ear warmers....

I have been crocheting ear warmers. I made one that is a natural color and one that is rainbow color.

I like to crochet and have not really had a project in a while. I found some boot cuffs that I made about a month ago.

I am hearing that we may have some snow this weekend. I would love to see some stick and then melt. 

I am still working on getting myself together. The thing that worries me the most is my ability to get mad so quick over nothing. Like this evening the lights were flickering really bad when the heat came on. I get frustrated thinking about wonder whats wrong now? Then I lost my glasses and could not find them anywhere. I have other pairs but I really like this pair. Next thing I know is that I am cussing like a sailor and then getting mad because I get mad so easy. I don't have anger issues but I want this issue solved. I just don't like it. 

I am trying to get on healthy track also. I have done better with my eating today but I have not managed to get any exercise in. Oh well I have tomorrow. One day at a time.

Thanks for stopping by.

I think to much! Thinking to much leads to ideas that you have all intentions to do then you think some more and you decide that you need to do this or that to accomplish the idea. Then the next thing I know I have talked myself out of the idea.

Alright did that make any sense at all? Example I was thinking that I had a plan to get healthy at the beginning of the year. I have everything planned out by starting "Taking back your Temple"How to achieve a healthy weight lose God's Way. Well my year did not start off the way I wanted it because I got sick! Being sick makes you feel depressed and makes you not really care if you lose weight or not. Well I am getting well still have a little cough but over all I feel better. But here again I am thinking I have got to stop making excuses. Every morning I have all intentions of walking on my treadmill. I walked one day and I have talked myself out of it the rest of the week. I have tracked my food but I have been over my calories everyday also.

Then I think I will try one thing at a time. I will blog about how I am doing then I  will start tomorrow. Or I will get myself together, I will get well and then I will not have any excuses. I will pray, stop pacing the house looking for food. I will stay off the phone, I will not over eat, I will track all my food, I will exercise. I will read my bible. I need to get my mind together... I let myself fall apart to much before Christmas and now I am having an hard time getting myself back together. I feel like I am getting it  back together and then I think to much.

I am having fun doing my photo contest. Today was up close ! Don't you just love the little web nest with the debris in it.

Well thanks for stopping by if you got this far in this boring blog.

Tuesday ..... Catch up!

I am ready to get over this cold and get my New Year goals started. I am not completely well yet still coughing my head off but it is slowing ( praying it is ). Most of my coughing is coming during the time I eat or  if I talk to much. My throat is still kind of raw but I think it is because of coughing. Oh well that is enough about my cold.

I got sick the day after new year. I cooked a spiral ham, black eye peas, and collards. My in laws came and ate with us bringing corn casserole, cornbread and sweet potato pie. Yummy!


Cutting them up

Thought it was funny I bought a Smithfield Spiral ham? The smithfield was on the red foil and Publix was on the ham

Yummy food!

So I am not so sure how good of luck I had since I got sick the next day.  I am feeling much better and know I need to get on track. I had all intentions to getting back on track Monday. I walked a mile on my treadmill and kept track of my food eating over my calories. I keep saying no more excuses I made this my goal for the new year but so far that is all I have done. This is suppose to be a new start to get back on track mentally, spiritually and getting healthy. 

Today I sabotaged my on self by making a chocolate pie. Then the Farmer went to get me some cough drops and brought back Moose track Ice cream. Yes I ate some!! 

Tomorrow is another day. I will get this right one day.

What is it Wednesday January 6 2016 and I am already bored. I still have some cold in my head meaning snot and coughing. It is cold outside. Plus Clay still has some cold in his head. The Christmas stuff has been put up. The house is straighten, I know I could do some deep cleaning but then it would require throwing a lot of stuff away and the dump is 12 miles away. LOL But then when you throw something away a week or so after you throw it away you find a way it could have been used oh well.

I could take a nap I am so sleepy from coughing all night but overtime I get my eyes closed someone needs me. I want to get back to exercising. I want to go and get me the Leslie Sanson walking video. I need to stop wanting stuff all the time. I go through spells I don't want on need anything then I get on these kicks.

I have a new list of stuff I want but I do not need. You know what I mean the things that you have seen on tv, fb or a friend got one. I try hard to convince myself that I don't need it and it get it off my mind.

Like I want a new iPhone 6 plus
I want a new fitbit (I don't need this at all the one I got works perfectly but I want a new one)    
I want to join weight watchers ( I can join weight watchers but it is no fun unless you have a group that is doing it with you.) No one is doing weight watchers much anymore around here. They even stopped the meeting in Carthage where I really liked to go.
I want a dog

Well I better get off here. I just wrote about nothing LOL but sometimes you just want to write it down.

Goals for 2016

First I would like to review last years goals:
Read the bible all the way through. I accomplished this
Lose 50#s I did not doe this I actually lost weight in 2015 and gained it all back before the end of the year. How sad is that?
Walk 10,000 steps a day. I did not accomplish this either
Do something for myself monthly. I did this by going to my Mommies night out bible group.
Do better blogging. I feel like I did better but I still have a lot of room for improvement
Work on my moms quilt. This did not happen.
Be happy more. I feel like I did better with this one until the end of the year and I fell apart.

Well to begin my goals for 2016!
1. I plan on spending 30 minutes a day with God and the bible.
2. I am going to work hard on my word for the year Absolve. I have so much more I need to let go and forgive so I can live a more christian life.
3. Be kinder. I will do a random act of kindness through out the new year
4. Walk more 10,000 steps 3 or more days a week. I am planning on doing a 5K in October.
5. I put a daily water app on my phone and I have yet to drink the amount of water my body requires. This will happen.
6. I will lose that 50 pounds this year.

I started a new photo challenge to get goo with my camera again. I miss taking pictures. I have also taken a cold. I have sinuses, scratchy throat, and horrible sinus headache. I am trying a home remedy someone shared with me.
1 teaspoon of honey
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon mixed together.

So far it seems to be working.

Thanks for stopping by. God bless

Happy New Year!

My word for 2016 is going to be


  1. transitive verb
  2. 1:  to set free from an obligation or the consequences of guilt
  3. 2:  to remit (a sin) by absolution

Last year I was looking for courage. I had some success with this but shortly after the year began I realized that I needed to find my inner peace. I had had a co-worker to tell me I needed to find my inner peace and at the time I did not under stand what she meant until I started reading my bible and following a podcast from Piedmont Church on "Pursuit of Happiness". I blogged about this last year and how good I was feeling. As the year went on and came closer to the end I could feel the anger and pain building back up inside me. I am not sure were it all comes from or do I? I have let things from all parts of my life build up with hurt and pain and just when I think I have let it go it all comes overflowing again. So this is going to be my year to ABSOLVE  all of the pain, the anger, the sins, and making assumptions about things before I know the facts. I am going to give it all to God.  

Philippians 4:6-7New King James Version (NKJV)

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
