I do as it helps keep me on track even though the weight seems to not want to change. My goals are met, then the rewards happen.

QOTD ~ WEDS. 1/1/20

DO YOU REWARD YOURSELF WHEN YOU REACH A GOAL, EVEN THE SMALL ONES ???

I never have, but I'm going to start with the next goal reached !!!

*** PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU DECIDE, IT MAY INFLUENCE YOUR DECISION....***

The Psychology of Rewarding Yourself with Treats
By Gretchen Rubin

TreatsĒ may sound like a self-indulgent, frivolous strategy, but itís not. Because forming good habits can be draining, treats can play an important role.
When we give ourselves treats, we feel energized, cared for, and contented, which boosts our self-command ó and self-command helps us maintain our healthy habits.
Studies show that people who got a little treat, in the form of receiving a surprise gift or watching a funny video, gained in self-control. Itís a Secret of Adulthood: If I give more to myself, I can ask more from myself. Self-regard isnít selfish.
When we donít get any treats, we begin to feel burned-out, depleted, and resentful

Your reward doesn't have to be much, but give yourself a gift once in awhile to let you know that you love yourself and you are doing a good thing. emoticon emoticon

QOTD. ~ SAT. 12/28/19

DO ANY OF YOU CELEBRATE THE ORTHODOX CHRISTMAS ?

We do here, just to honor both of my Parents & DH's Dad. My Mom was Russian Orthodox, Daddy was Rumanian Orthodox, DH's Dad was Macedonian Orthodox.
We'll have dinner, but on a smaller scale then Dec. 24 & 25. I keep one small gift back for everybody & give it to them Dec. 7. Of course we keep the tree etc. up till after the 7th. Since I've always loved Christmas, it's a good excuse to have all the stuff up longer ! ; }





As long as we keep trying, theres always hope !

We didn't exchange gifts. We did get some money from my mom which is my favorite and only gift. We have no needs and if we find something we do need, we get it when thinking about it.

QOTD TUES. 12/17/19


WHAT'S THE BIGGEST CHRISTMAS TREE YOU'VE EVER HAD ???

Our biggest tree was 7 1/2 ft. tall. About 5ft.or more at the bottom of the tree. I had put it in Lay away a few days after Christmas one yr. ( about 30 yrs. ago ) I took our son with us to a Do Cut store that sold artificial trees & Christmas decor. every Christmas. We got it out of lay away a couple months later, brought it home & it went right up to the attic. The following Christmas we got it down, put it up. My job was to Pouf up the branches , DH put them all together. OH MY ! It was HUGE !!! I could not believe it ! I just stared at it & said to DH, "It wasn't that big in the show room !!! We all laughed. I tell ya' one thing. It was the most Beautiful tree we ever had !!! We used it for at least 20 yrs. Until we decided to downsize.
Now we have a 6 ft. tree . I have 2 huge boxes with all the ornaments & don't even use 1/2 of them anymore. I still swear that 7 1/2 ft. tree grew while it was in our attic ! LOL

I love Krumkaka which is Norwegian rolled up cookie. Kind like a butter crepe hot off the griddle and rolled. Very fragile so I leave them flat. We make lefsa for DH as he loves that. Also almond bark dipped oreos.

Don't make many of anything any longer. Don't need them and don't have enough company to keep them around.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHRISTMAS COOKIE ???

OH MY ! All of them, almost ! lol If I had to only say one, I would have to say Russian Teaballs, & of course it's my Mother's recipe ! Nothing special about it, but it just is sooooooooooo............ good. Our 2 GD. love them more then anything, especially Olivie the oldest. I've been asked to bake them for several Weddings, so I figure they must be extra good
I do love clothes pin cookies, but only my recipe. I think it's the filling that makes it !Haven't made them in quite a few yrs. My SIL just borrowed some of my forms to try to make them. I was hoping to get them back by now, so we could just make a batch of them.

As long as we keep trying, theres always hope !

Sadly we are still decorated for Thanksgiving even though we have a foot of snow outside.
The storm last weekend made traveling too dangerous for our children to come. So we're trying it again this weekend. Winter outside - Autumn inside!

Monday morning it all changes - Trees are going up!!
Old vintage bulbs and Garland with icicles in the Living room
Blue and white with Photo frame ornaments in the Family room
Miniature kitchen utensils with Popcorn strings in the Kitchen
Deer, Acorns and Pinecones in Blue and Brown in the Sunroom
Not sure about the Bedrooms yet!

Yes, I do! I like hot wings (NOT buffalo sauce - I hate that flavor), and teriyaki flavors. I also make some wings with Greek seasoning that is super good!

Thank you FLUTTERFLI - I Appreciate your sweet words.
JAMER123 - I agree that certain songs can bring memories that are both happy and sad.
It has definitely been a year of firsts and the upcoming holidays and her birthday will be the hardest. My Dad passed away in 1997, so I've been missing him for many years, but now family traditions are being changed and that makes it harder and sadder.

I'll get through it, as many people do. I've got my husband, children and grandchildren to create our own memories with. We'll be okay!

Christmas can be a little tough for me as well. My dad died on 12-16 1993. His funeral was on the 21st which is the winter solstis. We had Silent Night playing when we walked out of the church and to this day, I have a hard time singing it.

Memories of family passing during any of the major holidays is hard and never forgotten.

THEMEOF79, I'm so sorry! My Mom passed 28 yrs. ago. I can remember sitting at Midnight Mass, sobbing during the first Christmas song, then when the did Little Drummer Boy, it was worse ~one of her favorite Christmas songs. That was the worse Christmas I ever had !!! Then Daddy died 1 & 15 days after Mom. Christmas has never been the same with out them. It does get easier as the yrs. go by, but you never forget them. You have to try to think of all the good memories with them, it will help you get through the rough spots. Remember there is no wrong or right way to grieve, there are different stages & we all go through them differently. Try to start new Traditions, but you don't have to change the old ones, unless you want to.
You will get through this. You need to talk I'm here for you !
Love & prayers, Your Spark Friend,

I let go & went right down in the water !!! LOL That was the end of that ! LOL Another time I did try board skiing & I loved it ! That was so much easier !!! ; }

DO YOU DECORATE YOUR HOME ~ INSIDE & OR OUTSIDE ???



Oh yea, nothing like I use to. I'd decorate every room in the house & the outside. Now very little in the house, about the same outside. I have so much Christmas stuff. Most of it bought over the years, but a lot of stuff I made. I use to so ceramics & plastercraft ~ painting. So there is a lot of that too !

Do you ever get your hair or nails done in a Salon ?

I hardly ever do ! Last time I had a perm was 1997 for our son's Graduation & party., A spiral perm. About 2 yrs. ago DH gave me a Gift certificate for a local Salon & I had a mani/pedi.

QOTD ~ QUESTION OF THE DAY
I saw this on another team & thought I'd give it a shot.

Monday 11/4/19

What is your favorite day of the week ?

Mine is Fridays . Even though I don't work anymore, it's my favorite. it's the beginning of the weekend & it's a little more relaxed then the week days.

As long as we keep trying, theres always hope !
