My Journey

My Life, one day at a time!
Such a Tragic Loss

Such a Tragic Loss

Well, I am here, a little later than I planned on, but this has been a very busy but productive day, so far.

First, I want to say how sorry I am for the TERRIBLE loss of the beautiful Norte Dame Cathedral.  I cannot believe that more people are not posting about this on SM. SEI_62627030  I am so thankful that I was able to visit this several years back.  This is a huge and tragic loss.  It was such an amazing cathedral.  No matter your race, color or religion, we should all say a prayer for the parishioners of this cathedral.

It is such a beautiful day out today.  The sky is that color of blue that only happens on a few spring days.  The temperature is good, there is a slight breeze, and the pollen is not near so bad as it was.  What a Day!  Get out and enjoy if you can.

I also need to Thank All of you that did purchase some Beauty Counter products from me.  Please let me know how you like these products.  I do have a FEW samples of the sunscreen left, if you would like some, send me an e-mail

and I will send you a sample.  I know you will love this and it is SO important for EVERYONE to wear sunscreen.

I am very proud to say, after 5 days of “saying as I do and do as I say”, I am still doing this.  I do hope to make this a habit.  (The hubs as come up with his own version of this, “Be a booker, not a looker”, he wanted to do something, so he booked the tickets and quit looking, really not like him either)  So I am also implementing the Be a booker,not a looker, to my daily mantra.  I used this method to make the decision for our Easter Lunch!  It is amazing how much more you can get done when you just do it!  I am even keeping our home much more manageable using this theory!  Let’s see if I can keep this up.

How is everyone feeling and doing today?  I am really quite well.  I did start my day out today with just a BIT more coffee, and I am getting a lot done.  I am not complaining, but recently, I tire very quickly.  Now, I can think of several reasons why this might be.  The first, and this might be the reason, while the hubs was traveling last week, I kind of went none stop and also did not sleep that good.  But now that he is back, I am sleeping better, longer and more solid, but still tire easily.  I have narrowed it down to one of two things.  It may still be from having my gall bladder removed.  They did tell me that I could tire very easily for several months, it just takes the body time to heal.  OR, my second idea, I have not been drinking enough water, (maybe because I am drinking more coffee).  Historically, if I do not drink enough water, I tend to tire quicker.  So, as of yesterday, I am forcing myself to drink a little more water, ( I have started to track all of my food and water intake again) and I will see if that helps.  I am also tracking everything, as I want to make sure I do not eat TOO much fat!!!  Not good for me!

Yesterday was my fist day back to LIGHT lifting, and I thought I might be a little sore or stiff today, but not so much.  I actually feel pretty good today.  I lifted a little again today, and each day, will slowly add a bit more and increase the weight.  Hopefully, all will go good.

I neglected to take pictures, but we had the BEST dinner last night.  On Sunday, the hubs put together his version of meatloaf.  This was a mix of ground pork, ground beef, and ground lamb.  He had me mix this with onion, garlic, and several secret spices he did not reveal to me, and some mushrooms.  I let this set overnight and then baked in a slow oven yesterday.   WOW, this was fantastic!  Just enough left for maybe one meal.

I know this post a little shorter then I would like it to be, but I MUST move on to the next item only list.  I know I will have more time to post more tomorrow, so be sure to come back tomorrow and see whats up!

In the meantime, please be sure to leave a comment below, and PLEASE, check out all of the companies that I work with and make a purchase, help support this blog soon to be podcast.  And, if you do want a Beauty Counter sunscreen sample, just let me know.

Until tomorrow, be healthy, be happy and be good!
