Here's to a New Year for us all! It was a rough one for me, dealing with the strife in the world, our country and my own personal challenge of how we got to where we are and how to get us all back on an even keel. I hope that something changes to bring our country and our world back to a better place. I can only speak for myself, but I will continue to RESIST the unrest and evil I encounter. I will continue to spread love and positivity if I can. Will you join me? :-)
I continue on my low carb regimen. Below is a sample of a meal that I made for myself. I must say, it's not "staged" pretty, but it's some chicken tenderloins sauteed in butter with a shake of garlic powder, pepper and NuNus Cajun seasoning, plus a nice perfect ripe avocado with some mayo on it. NO carbs. I've lost approx. 10 lbs. Not much, and I've gotten discouraged but I'm going to stick with it.
I'm going to be doing a new blanket CAL with Lucy at Attic24 blog, I have the bag of yarn and it begins on January 5th. That should be fun.
Of the things I am thankful for in this past year are that 2/3s of our children are right here living with us and we're enjoying the reconnection with our older son while he gets started creating a new life for himself. He's working with our younger son at Nabisco so that's a great start for him. I'm grateful for a great DIL, Kristi, and our two beloved grandsons that live here too. I'm also thankful that I have a daughter who is a good mother, and my 2 granddaughters - they live in Ohio and I haven't seen them for a year and a half and I miss them but I love them dearly.
My dear husband Dayle has had a rough year too, with back pain and recently a surgery - but he is improving and getting around better and we're hopeful that the pain he lived with will be gone when he recovers. I'm very thankful for him, we met when I was 14 and he was 16 - so we've been together for a long time!
I'm also thankful for all of you, my dear readers, that keep up our relationship by joining me here in my little online journal as we move along through time. A special thanks to those who take the time to leave a comment. I know some cannot comment due to not having a blogger account, but some of you do drop me a line via email and that means a lot to me.
Have a great weekend, and especially have a....
