~A Peek Into Our Weeks~

I have just been loving having Snapchat.  I am able to keep in touch with many of my loved ones that I only got to talk to once in a while.  I am so thankful that Tristyn added it to my phone.
Here is my niece Emily and her guy.  They look so cute!
Here is my sweet niece Madison.  She is a dental hygienist and sent me this to say hello during her lunch break the other day.
Here is my niece Sarah the other day.  It is just such a blessing to have my wonderful nieces as a part of my daily life.  I miss them so very much.
I've been doing my devotional and prayer journal almost every morning now.  This is the devotional that my cousin Teri told me about years ago, and I love it so very much.  Teri is just a blessing in my life.

Lauren and I went to the Library the other day.  It was so much fun.
These are the books I got.  I have really been loving watching Dave Ramsey on YouTube and wanted to read his book, The Total Money Makeover.  
I've been drinking my lemon water and not eating any desert like food.  I gave it up for lent, but I have decided to continue even after lent.  Now when I crave something sweet, I reach for an orange.  
I still make the children a special treat now and then.  
I melted some of my Zeep wax before it had cured long enough.  It did not have the strongest throw, but was still nice.  I plan to let it cure a few more weeks before I melt this again.
I've been making some candles this week.
Here is how I melt the wax for my candles, then I let it cool a bit and add the fragrance oil and pour them.
Justin and Steven played Pac Man the other night. I love watching them play this game, because it reminds me of my childhood.  
Megan went on a field trip and sent me this photo.  I love my precious girl so very much.  I always say she's my spunky monkey.
I hope you are all having a good week.  It will be the weekend before too long!  I have to finish my house work and then do my treadmill.  I do my treadmill three times a week for 30 minutes a time.  I don't run, I just walk briskly and I really do love it.  I watch I Love Lucy for the first part and then listen to my 1940's music until my time is up.  It makes me happy, and makes me stick with it.  Thank you for stopping by my little space.  Have a good rest of your week.  Hugs.  ~Juli

New YouTube Video

I uploaded a new YouTube video on my Sagely pill organizing system that I use to take my supplements.   It is one of my favorite systems that I use, so I just thought I would share it if anyone may be interested.  Please click on the link, if you would like to watch my video.  Thanks for stopping by my little space.  Happy Monday.  Hugs.  ~Juli

~A Peek Into Our Weeks~

Good morning!  I just walked 30 minutes on my treadmill.  It feels so nice to exercise, and eat less.  I have cut out all sweets, and I have lost seven pounds just by doing that and watching my portions.  I had been sick off and on for a while, so I had not been doing my treadmill, but now I'm well, so I will start that again.  I also have started taking supplements and my blood pressure is very good.  I truly think those supplements have helped.  I am going to make a Youtube video on what I take soon, so I will make sure to post it, in case any of you are interested.
I forgot to mentions that my son Tristyn made me a snapchat account so that I can keep in touch with all my loved one a bit easier.  They all had these cute little characters and I told Megan that I wanted one.  So she set me up with that app called Bitmoji.  It is really neat!  This is Tristyn and I sharing a cup of coffee.  So cute and fun!

Here is Lauren and I on a Snapchat picture.  LOL
Here is a picture of my niece Sarah and her little baby girl Reese.  She is such a wonderful Mommy, and I could not be prouder of her!

Steven and I went on our out and about and ate at our normal place.
I've been drinking a lot of water and lemon.  Did you know you are supposed to drink it with a straw so that the lemon won't hurt your teeth?  
I've been making some candles.  This is a little candle in the scent of pink sands that I like to burn on my desk.  It smells like spring to me!
Here are some apples I washed the other evening.  I don't know why, but I love the way they look when they dry.
Every weekend, I have been doing my nails.  It makes me happy to see them light pink.  LOL
Tristyn and Kaylee moved into a larger one of Steven's apartments.  Here is Tristyn in his game room petting Laya.  They are my grand-kitties.  

Lauren's dance team performed their last dance of the year the other night.  They were awesome.  
Just yesterday, Steven and I went to lunch and a movie with our dear friends Duane and Cathy.  It is always so much fun to get together with them.  Megan is done with her cheer for the year.  I am enjoying having some spring like weather at last.  I have been loving the windows open and the curtains gently blowing in the wind.  Thank you for stopping by my little space.  I hope you all have a wonderful week.  Hugs to you.  ~Juli

~A Peek Into Our Weeks~

Lauren went to her schools Homecoming dance with her good friend Mason.  Some of her class mates met at our church to take photos before going out to eat and going to the dance.  They all looked so nice.  Megan spent two hours curling Lauren's hair, it warmed my heart to see sisterly love. 
Megan finished up her cheer season, so we attended her end of year cheer banquet.  This is the cake they had, it is an exact replica of the cheer shirts the girls wore.  So cute!
I spent some time in our little downstairs family room.  I love that I have photos of both sets of my grandparents, it just makes me feel close to them.
Speaking of grandparents, Lauren's grandpa and grandma came down to judge a forensics tournament that Lauren's debate team hosted.  Here they are reviewing notes on how to judge that my father found and printed out for them to study.
Here is my oldest son Tristyn with his grandma.  They had a nice little chat.
Here is Lauren with her grandma.  Grandma was trying to find something on line to help Lauren with a project she was working on.
Here is my father in his make shift office.  
Justin hung out and visited with us, he is truly such a sweet little fella.
Here is my honeybunny checking his phone.  He has been really busy, but never complains.  He is such a blessing to have for a husband and a father to the children.  

Here are a couple of the decorations that I have done in my memory planner.  I just record events of our family's going on's in this planner.
Here is a photo of me and my baby sister Lori from years and years ago.  She was my little darling, as we were seven years apart in age.
Speaking of darlings, here is a photo of my brother and sister, Matt and Tricia.  They both ended up at the same convention in Orlando, Florida last week.  I love them both so dearly.
Here is our little kitchen.  Take note of our new microwave.  Our other one broke, and I did not want to replace it.  However, my family let me know they truly wanted one.  
I hope you all are having a nice week.  Today I need to work on some laundry, and do a bit of deep cleaning in our little home.  I got to facetime to my sister Tricia and my niece's Sarah and Emily yesterday morning, it made my heart so happy.  I also got to facetime with my sister Lori and my little sweetie pie Lilah.  Face time is such a neat thing!  We are going to visit my family this spring and I am so excited to spend time with my loved ones.  I don't get to see them as often as I wish I could, but the times I do get are very special to me.  Well, I best get to work.  Have a great rest of your week, and thanks for stopping by my little space.  Hugs.  ~Juli

~Happy Valentines Day 2018~

Happy Valentines Day!  I hope you have a day full of love.  I think of Valentine's day, not so much as a romantic holiday, but rather one to think of all the people we love in our lives.  Those who have passed on, and those who we may not see often are also a part of what makes this day special to me.  It is a blessing to have love in our lives, and a gift from God.  So today I just feel thankful for the love I have in my heart.  

 I hope you all have a good day, and please don't feel down if you don't have a romantic valentine.  I truly believe that love is a gift, and it comes in many forms.  So today, take a moment and let your heart be thankful for those you have loved in your life.  Thanks for stopping by my little space.  Happy Valentines Day!   Hugs.  Juli
