Sorry Patty I was away. I was just so tired and was taking care of Mom until Friday night and she went into the hospital. It was a very busy weekend and today was a bummer as I had a panic attack and had to take meds that made me sleep all day. Deborah visited Mom and took her the things she wanted.
I guess it is still a little chilly there. What crazy weather everywhere. Hugs, Judy

I enjoyed it as I had been wanting to go to the wine feast. I met friends there so it was more fun. I just got a cheap bottle of wine this time and I saw one single lady not bring wine. There was more than enough without it. I do not know that much about wine but someone gave me advice.

I do not know that I have heard of this man Vic. There are so many people we cannot know all of them.

Nice and sunny today, however, I took a break from exercising as it is the weekend.

Last night I went to a local wine share event in the middle of town. Where you bought wine and where food from local resturants was free. There was music, too. There was about 300 people....mostly business people who came out. Afterwards a group of people I was with went to a local wine bar which I had wanted to see. It was a different scene than what I am now used to.

That is wonderful Patty. I belong to a group here where I get explinations of the word here. The man who send it is named Vic. Do you know him? I am afraid to say I forgot the name of the group but I will find out if you want. Hugs, Judy

I try to surround myself with the Lord. I do not do well in reading the Book and I love to read. It is hard for me to understand. I know things in a general way. I am trying to make more of an effort to study the Word.

An Aglow Meeting is where many Christian women get together with special speakers the first week of each month. It is a world wide organization. A friend of mine is President of the local one, so she got me to go to it. I had wanted to go to it for a while.

I am glad that you were able to take your Mom out in some nice weather. It sounds like you had a nice day with her.

A friend and I were going to an Aglow meeting, but it was postphoned because of Easter. We spent the day together anyway by going shopping and doing things at the house.

Hi Patty,
My husband likes sausage what he calls noocked.
That was nice you had him over. I am sure he was just glad you had him over and gave him some attention. I tookk my mother out for her pea soup. It was very good and I also had chicken.
The sun was out and it was warm today.
Hugs, Judy

I had my Dad for dinner tonight, however, it was not the best meal as the sausage was cooked too much. He still told me thank you for it as that comes from years of needing to tell my Mother it was good or etc.

Hi Patty,
I woke so late I missed church. I have a hard time anyway to get up stairs. I pray a lot however.
I am so glad you got some palms. I felt so bad when I realized. Otherwise I had a nice day. I love the long days. I am never up too early so morning don't really affect me. lol Monday and Tuesday is heavy rains here. It is so bad for the flooding. They should build a damn. Hugs, Judy

Judy, I went to church today for Palm Sunday. We had a great guest speaker who writes books, too. Then I went to lunch with friends from church....which we do every week. It is fun to do something with other people.

I like that fact that it is lighter longer in the evening. Now if it would only get lighter earlier in the mornings.

I think that you are great daughter for taking your Mom out to lunch and places all the time. I know that she appreciates that. So she must live close to you. Enjoy her while you can.

I am getting ready for going to a church function tonight with Graham Cook coming to speak tonight and tomorrow. Graham Cook writes good books. There may be a good crowd. I am trying to go early to save seats so if there is a big crowd I can sit as it is not fun for me to stand all the time. A friend of mine is coming tonight.

I am happy that it has been such gorgeous weather lately, so that I have been able to spend time out in the weather. Now if I could just lose some weight I would be happy for sure.

Am feeling that I am becoming obessive about losing the last amount of the weight that I want to lose as I feel that is all that I really do right now. That is true when someone asks me what I am doing....I am going to be doing other things that I can remember doing. Today I helped a friend that I mentor with to get her area of the building cleaned and stuff put up as she and her husband are snowbirds that come here for a period each year when it is cold where they live for the majority of the time.

Hi Patty,
I needed to go shopping for food but went shopping for clothes for Easter and found some nice tops and pants. It was sunny here but windy. But that was ok as long as the sun was shining I was happy.
It was still sunny after 5pm so I was basically thrilled. :) Hugs, judy

Hi Patty,
I am looking forward to the good weather too. We had a taste of it and now I am greedy and want more.
O made bratworst sandwiches with sourkrout and italing fried peppers on Italian rolls.. They were yummy.
I love sourkrout when fried a little with butter. It is so good. It was an easy meal.
Hugs, Judy

Do you know what the procedure is when you do not receive Spark emails? Third or fourth day of not getting emails.

We are having more rain, however, I will not complain as we were too long without any rain.

It is another gray and rainy day. I guess there was some flooding. I am staying in and not going to get stuck in that. Hugs, Judy

Hi Patty,
I am doing OK sitting in one spot. I did make chicken parm and pasta today. Frank had two helpings it is his favorite meal.
Meat pies are a lot of work even making them the easiest way as I do. But Frank loves them and my mother was longing for them. I maybe won't make them again for a while.
Hugs, Judy

I like cooking alot of different things, so I do not get bored. I am trying to learn not to eat because I am bored. I am trying to be patient with myself, however, I just want to lose more weight and get the remainder off. IT is hard to get back on track after you have thought that you were at the weight that you wanted. Now just need to get over that setback.

Did it take you a long time to make your French meat pies?

I will look at Walmart, however, there is a local grocery store though that will probably have it if Walmart does not have. Will look to see just in case I need it...always good to know about those things.

Hi Patty,
You can get it in the grocery store near the flour or at Walmart I think..not sure though. It makes making gravy or thickining easy. Hugs, Judy

It is called Wondra and it is in a shaker container and makes making gravy easy. You need that, some gravy master and some drippings and some boullion. If you have enough drippings you do not need the boullion. You do need to add double the amount of water to the drippings or better then bring it to a good roll and shake in the wondra and stir until thickened. Rice flour is much less fattening.

Changing your eating habits is tough to get it ingrained that you do not need these things to enjoy a meal. Of course you can make gravy with wondra which is rice flour and not too fattening. Just don't use too much of the drippings and use some beef or chicken boullion.
What did you make? I am sorry it didn't come out too good. That happens to the best cooks.

I had my Dad over to eat supper with me, however, the recipe did not turn out well. When learning to cook there will be times like that. Just have to start thinking about the recipe before I start working on it.

I understand as that is what I am learning has been happening to me. It has taken me awhile to come to that conclusion....because I did not used to have this problem. It will mean I need to start doing what I did when I was growing up and not interested in desserts, gravies and other things that add plenty of weight. So I have something to really work on right now. I have enough to eat without these things that I am going to learn to again not to need.

Hi Patty,
Being a diabetic I would ask myself if I really need this and my body would tell me yes. I always seem to be so hungry even after just eating. Sigh
Oh well I need to fight it.

I am taping notes in different places around the house. Also, I am trying to see if positive affirmations will help. I need to do something so that I can get out of this self sabotaging as I want to lose the last 10 pounds.

It sounds like you might be doing the same thing, so how about a challenge to see how we can quite self sabotaging ourselves. Write notes where ever your food is. Try positive affirmations like do I really need this and why do I need this. I find that if I think negative thoughts I do better by turning them into positive thoughts instead.

Maybe we can help each other.

I believe that God is trying to tell us to mend our ways by all these disasters we are having lately. We need to pray that things will get better in the world where we live.

I am learning to do more on the computer. Thanks to Martin as he is always so patient and just does the whole thing.

It was so frustrating believe me! Thank God it is fixed. That is nice that your friend enjoys fixing yours. He is a good friend to have.
It feels like snow today. My Moms hands were like ice even in the restaurant.

Judy I am glad that you got your computer problems worked out. But until you get them fixed it is soo frustrating!!!

I am glad that I have a friend who does not mind helping me with my computer problems. In fact, I do think that he just loves working on any computer.

I enjoyed the men's Gold Medal Hockey Game. I have decided that I need to learn more about this game. As far as I know Texas does not have a hockey team.

Have a great week Judy.

It has already snowed here, however, it melts as soon as it hits the ground. I was over across the street having breakfast with my Dad when it first started. I decided I was just going to spend the day at home as the people around here drive too fast even when it snows. They do not use their common sense.

I forgot to get any groceries so that I could cook today. Well, tomorrow is suppose to be different, so I will do it tomorrow. We are suppose to have sunny weather tomorrow.

I think that depression is more painful then physical illness. Yes you are right getting up and dressed in the daylight is better for us emotionally.
I did go to bed earlier last night and feel so much better today. Hugs my good friend. Judy

None of us need that sleep deprivation. I hope that you can get into better sleep habits which is not always easy.

Today it is sunny, but cool. Nice. I hope that it continues as tomorrow and the next day if it stays cold we will have rain and possible snow. What a mess that would be here as the people in this area sure do not know how to drive in it.

As to sleep, I am trying not to sleep as much as I have been as I do not want depression to make me sleep. I am trying to wake up early when Curves opens early, so that I can get it all my exercising done early.

I guess I was really tired when I wrote the lst messages. Forgive me. I probably just had finished typing to a friend Peggy. Yes I pick up tidbits of information from the food shows. I love a lot of the programs. It was 40F today and this week actually which is warm for this time of year here. I think we are going to get snow this coming week however. I sure hope not. Hugs, Judy

Judy do you cook items that you see on the TV programs?

I have gone to Curves to exercise and to the mall to walk as it was a little chilly outside. And I am tired, so now I am taking it easy for awhile.

I had trouble last night with this website. I only did a few items on it and it took me 2 hours,so I just gave up and watched the Olympics. Today it is back to normal.

Today I spent the day with a dear friend after my Bible Study. It is nice that we have at least one day to do things together. A friend who I met when I used to go to the local senior center to take part in activities when I first retired and did not know what to do with myself.

I just love the Olympics so I will watch anything. This year I am trying to learn something about hockey should I be able to watch it. I like snow boarding.

Our park is having something for Valentine's Day. I just do not feel like going.

A cold front came in with strong winds. That maybe partly that I do not want to get out.

Hi Patty,
I am watching too. My computer and a TV is in the same room. I am enjoying it. I am glad you are having a nice relaxing day. I have had a busy one.
Hugs, Judy
