Just a few pictures

The first is a picture for Dee. A month or so ago she posted some pictures of her sprouts. I got motivated and bought the stuff to do some. My first batch froze in the camper frig--these should be safe in my regular refrigerator.
I had them on a wrap today with some smoked turkey breast.
Very healthy and under 200 calories. Walmart carries an incredible wrap that is under 100 calories and no sugar.
This is a picture of my guys. I tried to get Michael to stay still-but he was playing on Julia's scooter and did not cooperate. Keith was working on his fishing stuff- so Paw Paw thought he'd go out in the garage and sit for a spell with him. Three generations-91,43,17.

And this is the view from the front of our house. Or I guess I should say our rental. The guys had fun cutting the grass yesterday and today. It is actually two lots so it is about two acres.
It is very peaceful and we have lots of trees. Just a reminder-- our lot is about 100 yards away on the river side.

This is a view from the back of the house. I am looking forward to spending some time out here.
At this point the water is still really cool-too cool for me. I have spent a good deal of time learning about the up keep of the pool. The owner has a guy that comes once a week -so I won't have to mess with the chemicals.
I married a handy man -he can fix anything- so he replaced the timers today on the Polaris and the filter. He also fix the garbage disposal--former renters left without one of their spoons. And he went and got me a new dryer since my last on went capoot on Saturday. He went and picked it up--change the electrical cord and got it all put back in place. Can you tell I am proud of my man? He knocked out some big things today on his honey do list.
I might just give him a big kiss. :)
And this is from tonight. After almost two years Julia was finally able to invite a friend over. They spent a good bit of time in the pool and the rest running around the house. God is good. We will enjoy our time here until God moves us to our next (and final) home. Until then I will enjoy making this a home for my crew. May God find me faithful in the small things.
Thanks for all of your prayer!
Don't stop!

Hi Sharon-

Congratulations on the weight loss! That is fantastic! I really appreciate all of your kind encouraging words of late. This paragraph is from my latest post and it trult applies to you:

Thank you all for lifting me up over the past month or so and thank you all for helping me to stand when I really just wanted to sit. I am further along on my walk because of you all, who have perhaps been put here for just such a time as this. My heart is filled with love right now for all of you bloggin' sister chicks!

Bless you Shron for being a drop of goodness in Blogginton!

I'll be back this afternoon to work on my tag:)

Dee said...

Wow - beautiful place Sharon!! I'm happy for you! We had a pool at our last house and once you get the hang of it, it's really not much work. Love the pic of your 'guys' and the one of Julia and her friend. Awesome! Looks like a wonderful place to live. AND, I love the sprouts!! :) I have some growing too. I forgot to have some on my salad last night -- grrr. Enjoy! D

Shelly said...

Love the pictures! And esp. the one of the '3 generations.' That is so special to me!

And girlfriend, PLEASE enjoy the backside of your yard this summer :) There's nothing like basking in Jesus outside by the pool :) With some spf! hhehe

And trust me, we had some good food in Boone! But not enough of it - those lines get long! lol

Lovely home! Thanks for sharing it with us. I have been sitting around my pool these last couple of days (not in it too cold for me 71).

I am behaving myself and I feel really good about it. I still need to fit some exercise in today. I was just at the grocery store and was seriously salivating over the choc bars at the cashiers. I resisted though!

Halfmoon Girl said...

I had no sugar again today ( Wed). I will post a pic of the water container I bought to help me get all my water in daily. It seems to help.

BunnyGirl said...
