Thoughts of the day

Good Wishes
By freely sharing your wealth of good wishes, you earn the guarantee of a right to happiness.

Body is visible in a mirror. But character is visible in actions.

Consider The Consequences
Become very, very sweet. Remove even the slightest trace of anger. Whatever you think, whatever you say, consider carefully all the consequences beforehand. By performing actions knowing their consequences, success is definitely experienced.

Pinewood Derby 2010

Stephen's first Pinewood Derby race is over. All of the preperation and preparing the car was fun for all of us. All of the boys had a great time, yelling and screaming for their cars, and for there buddies cars.
The starting line was set...
....it seemed like a long way to the finish line...
...the cars were lined up (it was a double elimination to make it fair). Stephen's car is the blue one on the left (as you look at the pic)
After 1 1/2 hours of racing,
Stephen came in first place in his class!!!!! This is one happy kid accpeting his award.
Soon as we got home the plaque had to go up in the living room.
Since he came in first we move up and race in the next stage on the 27th of February.
My little champ!

An Amazing Husband

This year my husband and I will not be able to be together on Valentines day. My husband will not be home this week-end.
When I came home today my sweet husband already had my present ready for me to open. ( I did not get a picture of it wrapped)
What could it be?....
...so soft and pretty...
 PEARLS!!!!!! Honest to goodness real pearls!
My very first pearl necklace...and I love it, but not nearly as much as I love him!

The Biggest Loser...week 5

This Monday was weigh in number 5.
So we have officially been on this journey for 4 whole weeks.
I lost 4 more pounds this week.
So far I have lost a total of 20 pounds!!!!!
I have been wanting The Biggest Loser for our Wii for a long time.
I have to confess...I got it. I used it Saturday and I am still a bit sore today. There seem to be a lot of different options so it isn't the same thing over and over...and I like that.

Snow has arrived...and still coming

Our February snow has arrived! It appears that it may be staying for today as it is still coming down.
We went out last evening when it was raining. When we left the store we had about 2 inches of snow. The roads were a bit slippery! As we pulled out of the store our car slide sideways....BAM...right front fender into the guard rail....Boom....we bounced off and the back end swung around and hit also! Thank God no one was hurt and no other cars were involved. Looks like my car will need a couple new fenders.

I did go out this morning and took a few pictures. I have to say it is very pretty out this morning. So far we still have power, from what I am hearing on the news we are lucky.

Heading out to nib around
Taking a break from all the shoveling
This is looking out my bathroom window
Hoping we don't loose power today
The snow is heavy and weighing down the trees
About 12 inches so far
Waiting patiently for summer

Thought for Today

If I limit the love I give to just one or two, it will eventually go stale. If I learn to create love inside my heart and silently give it to everyone I meet, love will grace every corner of my life.

The Biggest Loser week 4

This week was not as good as the previous ones....gained one pound. Considering I did NOT eat very healthy a few days (plus retaining water...I know TMI), not bad.
Today is another chance to be healthier!
