Hello, Friends.   We arrived here yesterday and after checking in, a deluge of heavy rain came, followed by a beautiful, colorful rainbow!   Above is a photo of it!

Hubby   LargeManWaving.gif image by autumn1234567 stood by the window looking out and called me to come look at it.  What a sight to behold!  The Lord makes such beautiful things!   Notice in the distance, standing over the lake, a white cross.  It looks little in the photo but it is HUGE and it lit up brightly in white lights all nite each nite as it stands over the big lake and we can see it at nite. 

Hubby took me to a thrift store that I wanted to go, the same one we visited last year (but didn't get anything from it last year).  Well, this year, we hit the jackpot!  4 very large, long racks of clothing on hangers to choose from and only 25 cents each piece!  I picked out 9 pieces of clothing and with tax was only $2.41.  Mostly shirts, very nice ones.  So happy over this find!  Also, yesterday and also today, I had a HUGE salad and it was so delicious!  Fresh broccolli, strawberries, little tomatoes, cucumber pieces, leaf-lettuce (purple and green), shredded carrots, grapes (red and green), sunflower seeds, something else that resembled sunflower seeds and tasted chewy, and raisins.  Yummy!

Hope you are having a nice day.

That picture is so beautiful and perfect it doesn't even seem real....amazing!!!!! It must have been wonderful to see in person. Lucky you at the thrift store........sounds like you got some great deals.....and your salad sounds delish...could the unknown seeds be pumpkin seeds?

Maria7 on 08/12/2022:
Thank you. Yes, it was a huge blessing to witness that rainbow! No, not pumpkins seeds...have had them before...these seeds are a lot smaller...about size of sunflower seeds...and instead of crunchy, chewy. The salad was wonderful! We are having a very happy time! Hope you and D are doing well. Happy for Y'all about your new mattress...it sounds very nice.


Donkey on 08/13/2022:

I rather enjoyed reading about your thrift store experience! What a score!

Yes, we will be staying at a Christian resort by a beautiful lake. We are so excited. Thank you. I'm glad she's doing well, also.

Hello, Friends.   

156 on the scale this morning.   

Hubby is doing a lot better, still has a lump on his leg but not as big, and doing most of the things he used to do before his accident earlier this year.  Appreciate your prayers for him and Daughter.  Will update on Daughter soon.  She had her big surgery this week.  I will be taking her for a post-op visit to see her surgeon next week and hope to do an update on how she is doing after that.   Thanks again, for your prayers.

Hope you are having a nice day.

Maria7 on 07/21/2022:
It is a beautiful place. Then we went and got some lunch and ate in the truck together. A nice day.


horn_of_plenty on 07/21/2022:
nice number one the scale.

and for that park, it's soooooo up my alley! love that picture...park looks fantastic with some shade for hot days. would love to visit it!

Maria7 on 07/22/2022:
I would love to go back, but there are people hanging out in it that may be living there and I don't know how safe it is...saw them at different places as we hiked along...we couldn't stop at a gazebo because someone was taking up the floor in it...people on benches there, one without a shirt on...so may find a new place for next time...that feels safer...


Donkey on 07/22/2022:
This is such a pretty picture -- looks like a nice place to rest during a hike. Husband hiking means he's doing alright, right? Still healing?

I hope your daughter is doing well, as well.

It's nice to see the numbers coming down nicely! You're doing something right for your self :-)

Hello, Friends. 

Scale weighed me at 158 again this morning. 

Think I will stay on this island for a while and take nice, long, leisurely walks and enjoy the sunshine!

bearcountrygg on 07/15/2022:
That looks like a great place to stay.......You seem to be able to snap right back to that number......the beauty of plateaus...They really make it easier to maintain........I personally love plateaus myself.

Maria7 on 07/15/2022:
When I was younger, this 158 was my high weight...until...one day my sweet Hubby Mike bought 2 bushels of corn at the farmers market, knowing that corn on the cob was my favorite food...I would come home from work and get 6 of the ears of frozen corn out of the freezer, microwave them with margerine, and eat them while cooking supper, like a snack...then eat supper, too...a big supper...needless to say, within a couple of months, I was over 200 pounds...(205)...my new 'set' weight... instead of former 158 that I had been weighing before...I wore this new heavier weight until I took off 50 pounds in one year...it was not easy to do.... So, if I maintain at this weight a while, I am okay with it...for a while.. Smile....


bearcountrygg on 07/15/2022:
I know that I have set points where I just hang out and stay awhile...They have always been very dependable.........Corn......he meant well....and you loved it!!! How quickly we canput it on....and how difficult it is to take off.........Back when we had foster children...a friend of ours manages a chain drug store...after Easter...he had to give away ( donate)...most of the leftover unsold candy......he had always given it to the boy scouts each year but they didn't want it anymore...so he told me that I could take all I want and donate the rest to the social services that we took children from ( our county).......so we ended up with an enourmous pile of candy bars and jelly beans...all boxed up....he said to share with other foster parents as well....so I did what he asked....we had candy for months.....gave some to another foster family and delivered the rest ( a trunkful) to social services.......no one turned it down...LOL.....and like you with the corn....I put on weight...a lot of it.......and when I was done....it was also a struggle to take off......it is an easy thing to do when all of that good stuff is there in abundance....

Maria7 on 07/21/2022:
Always easier to put on than to take off.


Donkey on 07/16/2022:
Nothing wrong with taking it nice and slow. I am at a natural set-point for myself as well. I can maintain 145 with little effort. If numbers didn't matter, I'd stay here. However, physical movement is not ideal at this weight. I think that's what motivates me more than anything to get the numbers lower.

Interesting! I hadn't really thought about this aspect of my motivation until you posted this. Enjoy your stay at this island :-)

Maria7 on 07/21/2022:
You've been doing well at maintaining.


Donkey on 07/16/2022:
PS Lately, I've been relying on Jeremiah 29:11. We had this read at my Son's service. It has helped keep me steadier than I might be otherwise.

Maria7 on 07/21/2022:
Very uplifting Bible verse. Very encouraging.


horn_of_plenty on 07/16/2022:
love that island photo! beautiful! i'll stay!

thanks for the reminder of fresh fruits/veggies.

my plan this week is to actually eat lettuce (i don't usually buy it or eat a cold salad with lettuce in it). usually my salads may be chopped cucumbers/tomato.

this week it's back to the nutritious lettuce for as long as the package lasts me. thank you!

leafy greens i don't do enough. thanks.

Maria7 on 07/21/2022:
Did you get your lettuce? Sometimes I crave it, sometimes not.


horn_of_plenty on 07/16/2022:
lately i buy these tiny "finger" looking bananas that are skinny and like 3"...prob only 50 cal, but i estimate them higher. they are good for less calories but same health factor.

Maria7 on 07/21/2022:
Haven't tried them before.

Hello to you. 

 Hubby LargeManWaving.gif image by autumn1234567

and I took a nice, long neighborhood walk this morning.  His leg is almost well...still got a big lump but not as big as it was from his accident earlier this year.

nativeamericanwomanandcanoeanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567

  I really enjoyed Linda's post today(BCGG)....her story of growing up and what she wrote about balance in our lives.  I so agree with her.  Balance is important.

Hubby and I retired before we were completely out of debt (we are still working on paying off a little debt, to be out of debt completely) but we do, thank the good Lord, own our home and vehicles.  So thankful for that.  We did get that paid off before we retired a few years ago.  Might would have been better had we worked a few more years than we did, but Hubby's job was manual labor and my job was secretary and we wanted to spend some time together while we were still young-ish...so we retired early, before full retirement age.  This meant living very frugally within our budget until we can get these remaining very few debts off of us.  A lot of people do not think this way...about living within their budgets....they pile up lots of debt, giving no thought to the limitation of freedom that comes with that later on when they are doing without some much more important things in order to stick to their budgets of paying today and tomorrow for what they got on credit yesterday.  We used to have credit cards, you see, so this applied to us one time...  We were not frugal with them...We used them for everything, which some were needed things and others not needed...and soon we were down to having very little left in our budget each month to get by on.  We ended up going to three different credit unions and consolidating our mistakes (several high-interest credit cards)...and therefore, reducing the finance charges each month, as well as the monthly payments...so...We look forward to having this debt paid off and then we will be debt-free and we will be celebrating for real!    

.........................................

 

Hope you are having a good day!

Our stories are very similar Maria....D also retired early......He was in construction and also bears the helth issues now from that........We also had credit card debt when we retired........I know exactly what you mean........we did get it paid off and now pay the cards off every month......It was a hard lesson to learn..........We also had a home equity line of credit for a prior house...What a huge mistake that was.......There are so many pitfalls that young people can fall into so easily......it is so tempting...luckily we learned.......I'm sure that last payment will be a gigantic reason to celebrate!!!! I truly does take a load off your shoulders. Our husbands leg/knee injuries sound like they are taking the exact same path.....D's was 7 months ago...and there is still an obvious lump where it happened....but it is verrry slowly getting smaller and smaller.....

Maria7 on 07/12/2022:
Wow...happy you shared this with me, Linda...Mike was a heavy machinery operator...operating big cranes, you name it, he could do it all...He developed severe arthritis in his back and continued working for years after that...he worked over 40 years...it was time for him to retire, even before all that time had passed but he stuck with it, even in pain...So, we took our 401k and used it to help pay off our home and vehicles.... Yes, it sure does take time for our Hubbie's legs to heal but glad they are both getting better and lumps getting smaller for both of them... Yes, credit card debt sucks big time...We learned our lesson, though...the hard way...Hopefully within 2 or 3 years, we will be debt-free, with our good Lord's help. Hope you and Dennis have a nice evening.

D was also in construction......Carpenter by trade.....Spent many years as a carpenter and then as construction superintendant....building Chrysler Tech center, hospitals, schools and a lot of work in Pontiac Motors and an airport......And simutaneously and after retirement...he had his own construction company....he often worked 7 days a week........Funny story about an equipment operator..........When our boys were little....they had a sandbox in the back yard.....while they were napping one day....there was some road construction in front of our house......It was early afternoon and the guys had taken a lunch break under our front yard tree......all except one......he had discovered all of the tonka trucks in our back yard in the sandbox.........I looked out and saw that grown man...happily digging with the tonka loader in the sand....Funny how fascinated he was with that....when he was actually the operator of the real one out in the road......I have always wished that I had taken a picture of him.


horn_of_plenty on 07/13/2022:
I really enjoyed Bear's post too. It kinda goes along with the idea that we all make choices to get where we are at...and there are so many excuses we make that it was someone or something else's fault or reason of what we got to where we are at....when really it was our choice all along (with anything).

I hadn't realized that you are still paying debt down, no matter how much it be. I think it's very thoughtful of you to share it with us, as I know Donkey and others may be in a similar position and will relate to what you wrote - also you may wish to discuss what worked, etc and what did not.

I heard recently on the news about the best way to manage debt is to consolidate like you did onto less or one card/account so that it's simplified, easier to pay off, and a lower interest rate.

i'm glad you are getting there. i don't think anyone deserves these types of challenges that we face in society and i'm sorry that you are not debt free now.

thanks for the reminder to be frugal. the trip i'm going on in February will cost me some money out of savings, but i do have quite a bit more in there, so i hope to be a little frugal and save where i can...and know that after the trip to cut back where i can -

i'm also still deciding if i should alter my commute to save money...we'll see, prob not.

you remind me of the importance to have money later...not just spend it now.

........................................................

Houseandcanoeoncreekinmtnsanimgif081010.gif image by autumn1234567 

Hello to you.

Scale read 158 this morning. 

Everything is a CHOICE.  Something for us to think about today.  I made a CHOICE last nite to have a small bag of potato chips.  Was it worth it?  No, even though the little 150 calories bag was only maybe 1/3 full, because I didn't need it and it did not make me feel full after eating the chips...I was still hungry.  We all make choices.  I could have said to myself, that I would choose not to eat the potato chips, not given in.  How little do we think that tiny choices make?  They count much more than we think they do, whatever they may be.  We may tell ourselves that a choice we make today is not important.  It may be something we can do to help someone..even a phone call or sending a card, etc. and we put it off, saying we will do it another day.  We may say, "Oh, it wouldn't matter, anyway."  It may be much more important than we think it is.  We may look back and say in the future, "I wish I would have done this on that day instead of what I did instead!"  But then, it will be too late to change it, because of the choice we made, which we thought was not important, when it was very important.  It was much more important than we thought it was.  But, it cannot be changed.  We have to live with it.  We let the opportunity slip by.  It may never come again.

  I am working on more veggies, less meat and bread.  What I really need to work on is less snacks.

Great entry. totally relate on making a choice and also making the choice to put things off...and then it biting you in the a**!

how many times i have done that!

Maria7 on 07/12/2022:

Donkey on 07/12/2022:
This is a VERY good post. This made me realize that for my own eating, I think most of it is thoughtless - an automatic reach for food, rather than to make a conscious choice, more so when I'm at work.

This also applies to after dinner. Do I think about my choices after my meal? Or do I automatically start looking for a sweet to end the evening? Uh huh...

Maria7 on 07/12/2022:
Yes, a lot of eat 'automatically'...just because it is time to eat, etc...but we do not really 'enjoy' the taste of the food because it is not what we really want at that moment and we are simply eating because we think it is 'time' to eat...


horn_of_plenty on 07/12/2022:
I really like Donkey's response bc it's true...even if it is an "automatic choice," it's only automatic bc we once made the choice and it became habit. again, our choice.

Maria7 on 07/12/2022:
Yes, and sometimes a habit is not necessarily a wise one.

Hello, Friends.

Weight is 159 this morning.   

I hope you are having a good day. 

We've been under heat advisories here in S.C. with heat indexes up to 111 recently.  Even with the ac going in the house, it is warm at around 80 inside.  About all it can do, ha.  Glad it can even do that.  We've been having storms that have taken down large tree limbs in the back yard.  Lots of debris all over yards, too.

Took Daughter to Surgeon yesterday...she is to have her big surgery week after next.  Please pray that all goes well.  She will be preregistering at the hospital where she will be having it done with general anesthesia next week.  Sorry I cannot go into details, for her privacy' sake. 

Hubby is still recovering from his injury that happened earlier this year, but he is continuing to get better. 

Thank you for your prayers for him, too. 

Snowball is doing well currently.  He says hello..."Meow!!!"

Wishing you a blessed day.

Donkey on 07/09/2022:
Oh that heat sounds insufferable. Can you get outside in the mornings and evenings?

Praying for your daughter and your husband. It's good to hear that your husband continues to heal. I hope your daughter's surgery goes well. Please keep us posted.

Maria7 on 07/09/2022:
Thank you, will do. Yes, in the mornings, although muggy.
