I like getting lists like this. This list of different foods, and what they do for your body would be handy to print out and carry in your purse or wallet or whatever, so you could make good picks at the grocery store. It wouldn’t hurt to tape one to your fridge, as well.
I suffer from a lot of back and other joint pain. It’s not every day, but it IS most days. Just in varying degrees. Today has been a rough one for me, with all the rain and snow heading our way. Not only does it make me hurt when it’s here, but I can feel it coming for a day or two before it even gets here. So, “the rainy season” is a big old grumpfest for me. LOL I try not to complain, though. And I try to get my mind off of it. Plus, since learning about The Law of Attraction, I try to remember to think only positive thoughts. It’s hard on days like this, but I’m determined to make my lemons into lemonade.
So, today, on Gratituesday, I would like to show Gratitude for my achy body. I am grateful that I have all my limbs. I am grateful that I can walk around, and not have to depend on a wheelchair or anything like that. I am grateful for a family that helps me do the things that are hard for me to accomplish on my bad days. I’m thankful that we have decent medical insurance to help pay for meds and the surgeries that I’ve had. And I am grateful for whoever thought up Gratituesday, and gave us a lovely reminder to have gratitude for all the little things in life (and some not so small things, too!). For me, that was Laura over at Heavenly Homemakers! Thank you Laura! Join us for Gratituesday at Heavenly Homemakers!
Ok, well I had the idea of making a Jackalope, but I just have not been able to get the antlers to work out right. So, I’ve decided to just work on something totally different. So, here is the beginning of it. I’m not quite sure how it will end up. And I can’t tell you what it is…. because it’s a non-existent creature from my own imagination. I’ll figure out a name after it’s developed a personality. LOL I haven’t sculpted anything in polymer clay for a while, so it feels good to get my fingers back in it!
I just had to share a photo of my German Shepherd puppy with you. Can you believe this guy is only 7 months old? I think he’s already bigger than Max was, and he was 6 years old. Zeus is laying crosswise on a twin size bed. No, it’s not HIS bed. LOL He is a DONKA puppy. They are breeders near Lubeck, WV. They have some beautiful animals. I highly recommend them, if you are looking for a German Shepherd dog. They also do a Beginner and Advanced dog training class/ socialization time at the Parkersburg City Park on Tuesdays. If I remember correctly, it is $30 per 6 week (or is it 8?) class.
Have you ever heard of an virtual world called Second Life? It is so amazing! It really is a world! Or maybe I should say it’s a universe or galaxy. Second Life is a very imaginative, creative world. It is not a game. Actually, there are all kinds of opportunities here – for learning, gaming and even training. You could travel to almost any place in the real world, and also many imaginary ones! When you sign up for Second Life, you choose an avatar, which is your “physical” being. You can be a person, vampire, animal, or a robot, just to name a few! And you can change your avatar any time you please!
You can go anywhere and do anything, including celebrate Christmas! And not just in one place. There are places to go, things to do, and even events, such as shopping and live concerts! How about ice skating with your friends?
Or, maybe you have a hankering to visit Santa Claus at the North Pole? You can even BE Santa, if you want! LOL
And if you’re feeling silly, you can go on a sleigh ride that is pulled by ferrets!!!
There is just no limit to what you can see and do in Second Life! It’s a wonderful thing for those of us that can’t get out and travel like we’d like to. You can explore new worlds, role play, dance, play games, and make new friends from all over the world! Come join me!
As you may know, I am a lensmaster (author) over on Squidoo (a fun site for posting articles on just about anything!) People create Lenses (web pages) on all sorts of topics. I even have a few myself! My most popular one is “Mom look what I made! Easy Bake Oven recipes!!!“. I have a blue million recipes, or somewhere there ’bouts! LOL
If your child doesn’t already have an Easy Bake Oven, you can get one here!
With Halloween close on our heels, I felt it was fitting to add an appropriate recipe! You’ll find my recipe for Queasy Quesadillas for the Easy Bake (or Queasy Bake) Oven near the top, under Halloween Recipes! And guess what?!! You can add your own halloween recipes in that same section! And just for some added fun, you can vote on your favorite!
You might also want to check out my other lenses! I also have another fun monster lens, “Don’t Invite Dracula to Dinner”! It’s a deliciously spooky vampire poem! Ok, maybe it’s more funny, but either way, I think you might enjoy it! LOL
And don’t forget to leave comments! I LOVE comments!!!! ;-)
