Friday Fun!

Living healthy natural lives is not always the easiest thing, which is why I started my blog - to inspire and help others live their best life healthfully and naturally. I want to give you examples of how I am doing it through weekly updates, and I am hoping some of you will be willing to share your thoughts and ideas too.

So, here we go! I hope this helps and inspires all of you!

In my life this week...

Busy, busy...and I was excitedly waiting for today, when I get to go to Wisconsin to visit my new niece for the first time and see my family!

I am inspired by...

The sunsets. God creates this gorgeous picture with an array of gorgeous vibrant colors for us to see every night, and I am amazed at his artwork. :-)

My favorite thing this week was...

going to my first garage sales of the season! I got tons of cute clothes for both of my kiddos for such fantastic prices! Just can't beat the high you get from bargains.

What's working/not working for me...
Working -my relationship with my hubby was pretty great this week. He is a great father, and he was a good listener this week, besides other things.

Not working - I find myself rolling from side to side all night long. I just can't seem to get comfortable with my growing tummy.

Questions/thoughts I have...
What do babies think about all day and night in the womb?

Things I'm working on...
Getting rid of the guilt I feel for not "doing enough" "being perfect for everyone" "meeting every single need of everyone in my life"

I'm reading...
Not too much these days, mostly my emails. :-)

I'm cooking...

Oriental Pineapple Stir-Fry, Homemade Pizza, Oatmeal Banana PB bars

I'm grateful for...
my nausea getting a tad bit better. Every bit helps!

  1. I remember those days. I enjoyed being pregnant.
    My Life This Week.
    Busy and scattered as usual. I am a Red Cross volunteer. I worked a Homeland Security Earthquake Disaster exercise on Wednesday and did a birthday party at the local Veterans' nursing home today. I had meetings planning a Mother's Day event and the Fall Festival at church. Last night we went to our grandson's Marine Junior ROTC Parade, awards ceremony, and end of the year banquet. If I spent less time on the computer, I'd get more done at home.

    I was inspired by:
    The enthusiasm and true esprit de corps of the young cadets. They were a group of very nice young men and women.

    My favorite thing this week:
    I like working with people and encouraging my family and sharing in their accomplishments made for some good times this week.

    Working for me:
    My volunteer work with the Red Cross is expanding and I know they do a lot of good.
    Not working:
    I am not getting nearly enough done around the house. I broke my big toe on Monday and it has been a pain literally and figuratively. I wanted to work in the garden but couldn't.

    We are getting ready to retire and our financial situation isn't where we would like it to be.

    Working on; The house, always.

    Reading: Emails and blog sites. Have been reading stacks of Harlequin Intriques this week. I have books all over the house. Many are keepers and many I haven't yet read will be keepers. I am reading through the ones I know won't be keepers so they can be gone.

    Cooking: lots of salads.

    I am grateful for a very understanding and tolerant husband.

    Have a good week.
