It's Friday!

(hot-tubbing with some of my peeps!)

(homemade Squirts!)

Outside my window...It's beautiful here.  Things are greening up.  We had a bit of rain this week.  I was looking at the yearly calender on  The average temperature for this month is 70 degrees.

I am thankful...I am thankful for God's word.  It's always meaningful.  There is always a scripture that applies to my life, either as encouragement or conviction.

Psalms 139:17-18 
 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
  If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee

In the kitchen...I need to go grocery shopping.  I think tonight it will be homemade thin crust pizza, one meat and one vegetable.

I've got a freezer meal list going.  I want to take a day next week and stock up the freezer with casseroles and soups.

Bisquick Lasagna Pie
Bisquick Cheeseburger Pie
Bisquick Taco Pie
Quick Baked Pasta
Tereaki Chicken and Rice
Sweet and Sour Chicken
Chili Rellenos Casserole
Cheese Noodles and Turkey Keilbasa
Lemon Chicken
Tuscan Vegetable Soup
Beef Barley Soup
Oven Stew
Chicken Gumbo

I am wearing...  Jeans, socks and a green 3/4 sleeve tee

I am creating...I'm still creating in my mind.  I still have some computer graphics I'd like to complete and use as decorations.  I'm really wanting to get out and start garden boxes and build a chicken house before we loose the soft ground.

I am going...I heard back from my Doctor last Friday.  She has referred me to the Gynecology clinic the Navy Medical Training Center, February 11th.  She said the second ultrasound showed NO change in the cyst.  I'm hoping whoever I see will recommend a laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy.  I'm really ready to be back to normal and pain free.

I am praying...I'm praying for the desires of my heart, for my grandchild, for my children, for far away family, for my husband.

I am reading/watching...I've started the series The 39 Clues.  It's juvenile fiction but an action packed series for sure.

The Dead of Night

We are watching several things:

Six Million Dollar Man

Mission Impossible

I am looking forward to...One of these days, I am going to sneak off to the desert for some camping.

From the learning rooms...we've been doing Math drills with multiplication and division.  My student needs the extra practice.

Around the house...Yesterday and today are sick days for my student.  He's running a pretty high fever and says his neck and head hurt.  Last night, at bedtime, he said, "The only things that hurts now is my eyelids."

Smoked Turkey, Noodle and Cheese soup with Kale, Carrots and Celery. . . YUM!

We had a meeting at church last Saturday.  I am now the Sunday church bulletin maker and the person in charge of arranging food for the guest speakers.  It feels good to be helpful!

(this picture I drew will be my bulletin cover and the cover for a salvation tract I'm making)

Would you believe...We celebrated a tenth birthday last Friday.  I didn't get any pictures!!  We had to change plans at the last minute as we had a rainy day.  We had bought tickets for 4 people and planned to spend the day at Legoland.  Due to the rain, we went to the Creation Museum and an Air and Space Museum, we went to Von's and bought a cake and ice cream.  We had pizza dinner and invited some of his friends.  I'm sad I didn't get pictures!

(Missing some teeth!)

A quote for today... "We can be tired, weary and emotionally distraught,
but after spending time alone with God,
we find that He injects into our bodies energy, power and strength."
Charles Stanley

One of my favorite things...It's been a couple weeks since I had carne asada nachos.  I'm day dreaming today. . . .

A few plans for the rest of the week:  Nothing special is planned.  I was informed that my husband had duty the next 7 days.  No out of town trips for us.

A peek into my day...


  1. Glad at least you heard back from your doctor.  Still praying.  Keep me posted.  In the 70's, sounds great considering the weather here is in the low 20's with lake effect snow.  Looking forward to spending a week in NC with the grands.  Sully's smile is just like Matt's.  Can't believe he is 10 already. 

  2. Your green tee shirt is cute. It's nice that you're able to dress for  spring-like weather! I look forward to 70 degree days. We should be at 50 tomorrow. I hope your ovary trouble gets taken care of soon. I know how that stuff is, although mine is permanantly asleep now and the other one was destroyed/removed from an ectopic pregnancy. Your boy is TEN already??? AY,AY,AY, time is going by faster!

  3. Praying for you! Hope they can do something for that cyst without being invasive. Hope Sully gets to feeling better! Bless his heart. Being sick is miserable! 70* weather!?!?! I would absolutely love that! I'm ready for spring to be here. There's so much I need to do outside. I have no idea how I'm going to get it all done though! Praying for you and your family! I've missed your blog posts! (((big warm hugs)))  Love you, sweet friend!
