Hey everybody, It is my hope that you come to my site in a happy mood but if not….. perhaps you will be a little happier by the end of this post…….
Photo of the week:
Monday–> Morning run 4.5 miles in 51 minutes
Tuesday–> Morning run 5.28 miles in 59 minutes
Wednesday–> Morning run 3.39 miles in 39 minutes
Thursday–> I ran to Toguchi Park. (maybe 3 miles) It was a beautiful night. Photos are from this run.
Friday–> Morning run 5.28 miles in 58 minutes.
The water was so peaceful and the guys out there were just floating around, chatting and enjoying the evening. Yet over head are these amazing clouds. I understand these clouds are supposed to be storm clouds. It is an interesting contrast, I think.
Now as far as my eating goes, I have managed to maintain my new rule of not adding sugar to anything. Plus, I have not bought any junk food. But one day a friend brought a cake over…. I did eat a piece of her cake on that day.
I’m still working on adding more vegetables to my table. One thing that I like a lot and so does my husband is Okra. I don’t cut it up though. I briefly boil it WHOLE in salt water then drain it and put it in the frig. When it is ice cold, I add Tuna to it. if you can’t find the very,very good Tuna then switch to that flaked chicken but DO NOT use the yucky Tuna.
The new verse of the week is James 3:9-10
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father and with it we curse men,
who have been made in God’s likeness.
My brothers, this should not be.
Keeping my mouth in good shape is a 24/7 job. It takes more attention than diet and exercise put together. That, “My brothers this should not be.” kinda echos in my ear sometimes. It really, should not be but….. sometimes it is…… I still have a long way to go in learning to reflect Him.
Ya know, the sun sets behind my house so I can’t see it real well. Not from my house anyway. But there is this building in front of my house that has been newly painted. The owners also lined parts of it with white tile. When the sun sets behind my house, it shines on this building. And this building puts off a magnificent shine, in the direction of my front door. So I get the benefit of the sunset because of the reflection.
The other houses aren’t much to look at…. but that one on the end…. I look at it every evening. It makes a great reflection, yes?
As far as Daisy and Connor’s World goes, I’ve moved on to chapter 44 Daisy’s Birthday. I’m happy with the progress that I’ve been making but still…. it’s not post-able.
So for now, please enjoy my photos and running. Daisy and Connor will run again just as soon as I get it written up right. Until then, have a great week. Julia French
