  1. Happy Valentine's Day to all. What a difference a year makes! Today the sun is shining brightly. Last year we were having a "snowmageddon," as it has been dubbed. This time last year (Val. Day was on Thursday), my husband had gotten home early from his client's house because he had a slip-and-fall on black ice. Thus began a journey of healing that isn't done yet. Randy is better - much, much better - although he still has a ways to go to complete healing. The rip in his thigh muscle healed well, and the hematoma should be mostly, if not completely, drained (his doc said it was the biggest hematoma that he had ever seen and that it would take, at minimum, a year to heal). The foot still gives Randy problems - pain and swelling. But even that is better than it was, thankfully! We know there are certain foods that cause inflammation in his foot, so he either completely avoids those foods or eats them sparingly (dairy is a big inflamer...and something he likes very much! So that is sparingly consumed.) His CK levels were through the roof when he had his accident (that can damage the kidneys), but they came down nicely. They are just a tad elevated right now (blood tests this week showed that), but not in any way a danger. His triglycerides were over 1,000 - supposed to be around 150. Keto eating brought them down to just under 700 6 months ago. This week, they are down to just under 400. Amen and praise the Lord! The cardiologist is happy with his dietary changes and with the improvement in his count. He is still in the pre-diabetic range with his A1C, but we're pretty sure that is because he isn't able to exercise like he should (also likely the reason for the CK slight rise). Walking is good, but he still can't do that for long. We haven't been able to get an exercise bike yet, but it is on the list. I think that will help in a number of ways. Randy has always planned something special for Valentine's Day. Last year we spent the bulk of it at the emergency room, followed by an 18 day stay in the hospital. Pretty special, eh? LOL We are so thankful for the way God has worked. So, once again, Happy Valentine's Day to all. Remember two things: #1. God is good, all the time, and #2. This, too, shall pass.
  2. Sorry I didn't see this until now. He works for Home Instead as a home health aid. He no longer works til 9:45 on Fridays. Clients come and go in this business. He is able to work part-time, so he can study properly and do his church stuff. I made a pork roast in my Ninja foodi again the other day. Randy really likes it done that way, and it's quick for me. And it lasts him several days. Last night we had steak. Yum, yum! Tonight we'll probably have fish (Randy and I are heading over to Port Townsend early to take care of some church business and hopefully do a little visiting, so we're probably going to a fish place for dinner)..
  3. Marinated in vinegar makes it even Mmmmmmm - ier!
  4. I'm in favor of Bible college generally. And, while it is not a biblical qualification, I think it is a help many times for a man who is going to be a pastor (and I would qualify that with making sure said Bible college is biblical, because they are not all, sadly). I would be hesitant to use Bible college as a discipling tool...I know the article did not promote that. But a baby Christian going to Bible college seems to be a set-up for problems. A new Christian ought to be discipled in their own church before going to any Bible college. JMO.
  5. Oh, yum! That is the only way I can eat watermelon. I also like salt on my cantaloupe. Good stuff!
  6. No thanks to the vegemite! I'll get my vitamin b a different way!
  7. Ick! I love pickles, but that sounds gross! LOL
  8. Not a Hebrew National, Jim. They blend with the ketchup, mustard, and bread (sorry, we didn't have any buns hehe) to make one GOOOOOD dog! I'm so glad it didn't put you into a PICKLE. Wouldn't want any bitterness SPROUTing, right? As ESCAROLE through this thread, it still makes me laugh. It is THYME for me to go to church now, so ICEE ya'll later.
  9. I enjoyed a hot dog with ketchup and mustard today. It's been a while! I can only eat Hebrew National (all others upset my stomach). As I was putting on the ketchup I thought of all of you anti-ketchupers. It was tasty to the last bite. (this is for you, No Ni) PEAS be unto all of you.
  10. Randy is back on his keto/paleo/Mediterranean eating plan - he took off for the holidays, and it's been a struggle getting back on. But this is his second day. Tonight I fixed fish, a veggie medley, and bacon wrapped onion rings. He enjoyed dinner.
  11. I'll take my salt without snails, thanks. No, pickles GGGOOOOOODDD! I like breakfast burritos, but with salsa, not chopped tomatoes. There is a difference, and for some reason I can handle the salsa better than straight tomatoes. I do love ketchup on hot dogs! When I was expecting our son, I was very sick - nearly died from not being able to hold anything down. After months of it, when I was finally able to start eating again, one of the first meats I ate was a hot dog. I had to smother it with ketchup in order to eat it, though. While I do not like ketchup on my eggs, I DO like the combination of chopped steak covered with steak sauce, and scrambled eggs. I like L & P in soup (that's actually what we had for supper tonight).
  12. Well..... Some I agree with, some not. Totally agree that pineapple does not belong with pizza. However, chocolate/pretzels and popcorn/m and ms are pretty good, IMO. I like salty/sweet. Especially if there's chocolate. =D And turkey/cranberry sauce (as long as it's the canned jelly hehehe) is delicious! The only cheese I like with my apple is mozarella. I don't think honey and cheese go together, and ketchup on eggs is gross! I do, however, like ketchup on some things. Like a hamburger. Ketchup, mustard, mayo. Yum! And steak sauce is good, too. I even like pickle sandwiches, but only with mayonnaise.
  13. Absolutely! heart - I totally agree. Sadly, though, we don't have enough folks to have someone else in there with me on Sundays.
  14. Well, we've got our winter now. It snowed a bit last night - woke up to about 3 inches or so. At noon it began snowing again, and, while it's tapered off, it hasn't let up. According to the weather app, it is supposed to snow til 5 am. A bit of rain is supposedly mixed in with the snow right now. While I don't love snow, I don't hate it, either...although after Randy's slip and fall just over a year ago, I get kind of panicky thinking about him being out in this. He made it to work with no problems today, but called off for tomorrow. Our van is in the shop, so he's been using my mom's little car. The van is fixed now - fuel pump replaced - but the weather didn't permit us to pick it up. So hopefully we'll be able to get it Friday. Heh - we need it for Sunday, to pick up the girls, especially if the two little boys come with them. Anyway...with the snow and cold, chili sounded tasty for tonight. So that's what I made, and we all enjoyed it.
  15. Looks like fun! Happy anniversary!
