Sylvia! Maybe we can share ideas!

You can use a little of the "good fats" to help things taste better and to bring up your good cholesterol. For instance extra virgin olive oil, almonds, avocados and lots more.

I know what you mean about bread rolls. That is why I would love to find a whole wheat sour dough bread recipe. We just found some whole wheat dinner rolls and sandwich rolls at Sam's Club this week-end. They were really good.

Small baked potatoes with salsa and fat free sour cream! YUM!
Oven baked sweet potato "fries" with some seasoning a maybe just a little Parmesan cheese on them.

You can make verde sauce with tomatillos. It is so good for you. You can tweak it anyway you want with garlic etc.
Ingredients
1 1/2 lb tomatillos
1/2 cup chopped white onion
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon sugar
2 Jalapeņo peppers OR 2 serrano peppers, stemmed, seeded and chopped (you can use whole for more heat if you want)
Salt to taste

Roasted asparagus with a tiny bit of olive oil and minced garlic (shake it up in a bag) is really good. I like plain veggies too such as corn without anything on it. I learned to like fresh tomatoes this summer. I have never eaten them raw except in or on things like black bean burgers and salsas. I've been growing them for years.

Hi to you all!

I am praying for Silly's and Greenie's DGS's and Punk's kids.

CA, I don't have arthritis and Disney Land hurt my feet after early AM until dark! Don't forget to rest in the middle!

Jan, you have recipes too! Yay! You can grow spinach in a planter. It likes cool weather so you could start now. You could probably buy starts. I always have to watch eating things like that and cilantro too fast and then it can't keep going! Ha-Ha! I need to get going. I bought some peas and bibb lettuce to plant. I've got to get all my planters ready to go!

Can you all guess that I am HUNGRY???!!!

Hi Everyone! Been staying really busy, watching Gavin after school, doing homework with him, and picking up Daria once or twice a week - the little cutie has finally gotten the hang of the potty - 2 days and no accidents! All you do is say do you have to go potty and she runs to the bathroom - she is so proud of her big girl panties!

Had my whole gang here for Easter dinner, which hasn't happened for years - they usually have me come to them for dinner. So after not cooking for a houseful for YEARS, I had them all here - AND COOKED - turned out to be a very nice day!

Yesterday I had a quiet day and laid low - it was my John's 14th anniversary - had a Mass said for him, then the rest of the day I just spent quietly. May have been a long time ago, but still feels like yesterday, and I miss him a lot, but God has been good to me and has given me such wonderful friends, so even though it is not easy-it has become more bearable. I praise and thank Him form the bottom of my heart for all of you!

Got A CARD done, not like Lesley getting SIX done in one day - and working on getting the TSC ready for Friday - also working on finishing Gavin's Disney book - from TWO YEARS AGO - - - -thoughts of and prayers for all of your concerns is a huge part of my day. Sending you all grateful hugs!

I totally understand the "long haul", Lesley - it is over a year and a half for my grandson, and STILL nothing resolved!! Have fun with Julian tonight - I KNOW JUstin will have a grand time tomorrow with him.

Hope you get all your stuff together for tomorrow - been there, done that (last minute throwing everything together!! LOL) Have a good time and unwind a little - you have had a rough week. I am trying to get my card done for this week's Queen, Jan - good thing I did not have the play tonight!!

I goofed - next week is Ty's play - gonna be a bear with the Allentown stamp show on Saturday, and my hostess club on Sunday after 2 nights at his play!!! - better hustle this week!!

Praying for all you Sistahs - and all the concerns of your hearts!! Hugs to all of you!

Hello everyone...
Hope everyone is having a good weekend. It was so nice seeing the sun shine here.
(((((((((((((Greenie))))))))))))sending you cyber hugs...Anniversary dates are always tough days to go through...

Jan, Congrats on being chosen Queen for a day. I hope to be able to case one of your cards and get TSC card done. I had 5 special cards that I had to get done, and so far I only have 3 done.

I think I would win the award for the world's slowest card maker.

saying prayers for all of you...God Bless, Jill

SU! is doing a Color Refresh with the next catty. Following are some of the colors that will be discontinued:

Pretty In Pink
Bashful Blue
Certainly Celery
Baja Breeze

The challenge for April 12th is to make a card using one or more of those four colors. You can use one color as a main color along with a neutral or create your own color combo using two or more of the colors. Have fun!!

BTW, if you don't have SU! colors, use whatever you have that is close.

No worries, Jan. We still have Pink Pirouette, and Blushing Bride (former In-Color) will be a core color, too. Also, Pool Party will be a core color now and they're bringing back Soft Sky which I love! If you need the colors that are discontinuing though, do like Greenie says and order by tomorrow to get free shipping! Since $6.95 is minimum shipping, you're saving at least that much!

Jan...Congrats on being the Queen!!!! I will get a card posted soon.
Greenie your dgs and friend look so nice! He's growing up. He seems like such a good kid.

Lesley glad you got to enjoy your dgs! They are so much fun when they are little.

Jill I am a slow card maker too. I have just not cared about making any cards lately. Hope I get out of this soon.

I hate that SU is retiring Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery. I like the two blues too but use the others a lot. I love Pool Party. I think I have about six packages of it. No kidding. I was going to buy another re-inker but now I won't have to since it will be around. I use a lot of Bazzil paper and they have nice pinks and greens too.

Its supposed to rain all week here.

Keeping everyone in my prayers.

I wish it would rain here....we still keep getting snow...got 3 inches Sunday...highways were a sheet of ice...so I stayed home...and its still not thawing...what a funny year...

Jan, what better excuse for creating cards than not being able to go anywhere due to icy roads! That's God's way of telling you to stay in and create those masterpieces of yours!!!

I got my SU! order in Sunday night. I'm sad to see some of those colors going bye-bye. I am anxious to see what the Smoky Slate color will look like, though.

Greenie, those kids sure do look great all gussied up! In the back recesses of my mind I can still remember what it felt like to get all dressed up for the dance!

Justin has an interview with a temp staffing agency today. Maybe today will be the day that he finds a job!

Things with Marky are very shaky right now.....We are all adjusting to new living arrangements and it's very difficult sometimes with the different personalities here. Sometimes you do what you gotta do and just push on. KWIM?

Hugs to you all today!!!!!! I'm so sad that I can't go to Allentown this Saturday!!!

Howdy Sistahs! I am giving the challenge for 0419 early so that I can be sure I don't forget. So much going on but it's mostly all good stuff. One of my sweet ladies from my Mom's assisted living celebrated her 95th birthday and her two daughters gave her a card shower. They contacted everyone they could think of that was ever in their Mom's life and asked them each to send her a card. She received over 259 cards!!!! She talked about them and shared with us in the craft group and made a comment that she needed to get started on "thank you" cards. So for a gift for her (since I didn't know to send a card) I made a dozen single layer TY cards. She just cried and cried and hugged me and told me how sweet I am. Gosh, it made me feel so good! So the TSC for 0419 is to make single layer cards. Make several as you would for a gift to someone. Then use them as a random act of kindness and give them to someone. Oh, and one more rule; NO P I N K!!!!

Hugs to you, Tater Tot! Love you!

Good morning Sistahs! I haven't been around as much, but I still pray for all of you. On the other hand, I have been able to participate in a few challenges lately. I don't know where I've found the time, but I have! LOL! It is relaxing though. Have a great day, riders, and I'll try to jump back in later, Lord willing.

Good one, Tater!!!! Love this idea!!! What a sweet gesture for the lady at the assisted living place - bet she was in her glory getting all that mail!

CA, I don't know how you have time for ANYthing with the houseful you have to take care of, bless your heart!

I am behind with my teapotter card and have to cut my stuff for Sunday's club today/tonight. Then maybe I can get my TSC done for tomorrow (and maybe combine it with the QFTD for tomorrow if I procrastinate long enough!! ) LOL

Hey Jan!!! Single layer card is a card without punches or panels; just one layer of CS that has been stamped, inked, embossed, etc. Y'all go forth and do good!

Default Prayers please

First Sue, I wanted to tell you that I probably will not be at the stamp show tomorrow...My husband and I were going and we both have our tickets...

We just received a call, (and I am shaking as I type this note)
that my husband's sister is in a coma and is not expected to make it. The doctor feels she will pass today or tomorrow. We are kind in shock because she was only diagnosed a few weeks ago. My husband is taking this hard, when he went to see her two days ago, she was still aware of her surroundings and knew he was there. She held on to his hand and would not let go. She was so scared. He had to let go when the doctors and nurses came in to work on her in the icu. Thank you for your prayers.

Oh, Jill, I am so sorry to hear this news about your sister in law!! I know you are probably going to be at the hospital, so just letting you know I will be praying for ALL OF YOU and so will the others here on the bus, once they read your note!!! That is why we are here!!

It is good that your DH got to go spend some time with her the other day when she was still okay, and I am sure she derived a lot of comfort knowing he was there with her.

Will be asking God to keep you in in His loving arms and give you peace. Again I AM SO SORRY this is happening to your family.

Hugs and Prayers, Jill!

Default Thank you all for your prayers...

Sue, and all my sisters in the Lord...

Thank you for your prayers...
My husband was able to be with his sister when she passed this afternoon.
so was my husband's brother and one of my SIL's Aunts...

she went very peacefully.

The sad thing for me, is NONE of her four chrildren were by her side...

They all disowned their Mother...(I think mainly because of her drinking)

but I felt that at least ONE of them should have been there in the ICU with her...

She joined church and her minister recently prayed with her in the hospital
she is with Jesus...

Blessings,
Jill

Jill, so sorry to hear about your SIL. Good to know she's walking with Jesus now. It's good that her brothers could be there with her at the end. Praying for you and your family.

Oh, Jill, so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear SIL, but just glad she had you there with her as she took Jesus' hand - will keep you all in my prayers during this difficult time as you cope with her loss. [[[[[[HUGS]]]]]]]]

Jill I am so sorry. Wow it happened fast. I'm glad your husband got to be with her. I pray her children don't become racked with guilt. Just sad. I will continue to pray for the whole family. Hugs to you and your husband sweet friend.

I have my Justin with me today and he will be here again tomorrow. It feels so good to have him home, even for just a little while. He is restless as he is still looking for a job. There's gotta be something out there for him!

Marky's situation is not getting any better. His stepsons (Dylan's) dad has served Amanda, Marky's wife, papers asking for sole custody and claiming her unfit and claiming Marky not a good influence. Amanda is going to classes every night for the drug addiction and Marky is awaiting another hearing on 5/2. I tell him that there are consequences for actions and choices that we make, and the consequences happen even if we repent and try to turn our lives around. He thinks that since Amanda is trying to make herself better, that everyone should just forget what she has done. We can still love her, but not the choices that she made. As Jan said earlier, we love the sinner, but not the sin. It's a difficult situation.

Hugs to you all!!! Lovely day out today after those thunderstorms yesterday. Went to yard sales this morning before picking up Justin and found a bag of lace for a quarter! SCORE!!!!

Thank you all for your prayers...Sorry, I haven't taken much time to post...and I have not read this whole thread yet...I will catch up...

One thing I always forget about when things like this happen...is all that is involved.
I only let people here on this thread, and a few of my email friends know...

then My phone started ringing off the hook and company stopping by that I haven't seen for years...I thought how do they know?

Well, I forgot that my husband's brother, and Jim's youngest sister, and my daughter are all on facebook, etc. They let everyone know. (I'm not on facebook)

So kind of people to show that they care, and to call etc...but it does get a bit exhausting.

Thank you all, again...

Jill <---who is busy making sympathy cards...and will try to do the next TSC challenges as I can fit them in.

Thank you again, for your prayers and all the love that has been left in my gallery.

Sue, I hope you had a good time at the stamp show. Obviously, I did not get to go. Cherie and Kathi said that they really enjoyed themselves...and, again, shopped till they dropped. I am anxious to see the new things that they purchased.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
Blessings,
Jill
