This and That
Our sweet family arrived home safe and sound! What a treat to have them visit these past two weeks.
Alicia is doing the same eating plan that I am on (Trim Healthy Mama) and we did very well eating on plan, even though we were on the go so much. She texted me today that after two weeks of vacation, where we ate chicken alfredo, eggs and bacon, pizza, and ice cream, she lost four more pounds! I have been losing again too! After 10 months and going up and then back down 5-7 pounds over and over, I got back on track and the weight is dropping again!
I'm a very happy girl!
With the weather heating up, I got out this morning and did the mowing, before the heat really kicked in. Since it takes me about and hour and a half, I use the time to listen to music, or a sermon (Truth for Life app) by Alistair Begg, or a podcast. The last two times I've mowed I have been listening to Sally Clarkson. Her podcast, At Home With Sally, is so encouraging!
This morning Tim mentioned that the fridge didn't seem to be very cold and was concerned. After a long day of working outside doing inspections, he came home and checked it out, then called the guy who repaired it five years ago. He's coming in the morning. In the meantime, we moved everything from the freezer to our big freezer downstairs and are using a cooler box, Tim made a few years ago, with ice to keep the milk and other dairy products cold.
Hopefully it will be an easy fix and not too expensive!
Lee Ann asked for the punch recipe that I used for Emma's baby shower. It's very simple.
We used equal parts of lemon juice (freshly squeezed) and sugar and then we added some water and a bottle of Sprite. Then I pureed some strawberries and added them to the punch. It was simple and good (or so I'm told. I didn't drink it due to the sugar!)
Hope you'll all having a wonderful summer!
