Year Two, Day 285:My Day in Pictures

Long day. It is late. I need to hit the hay soon.

But I would not feel right about my life at this point if I did not submit my daily blog post!

At breakfast Saturday morning, my son-in-law suggested I post more pictures as I go about my day.  Guess he's tired of just seeing my face!

So, today, I took random shots throughout the day. Tomorrow I would like to get some selfies with people, but I do need to get their permission first!

This is perfect, because I do not have many words for you this late.  A picture is worth a thousand words, right?

Here is my face. Happy am I. I just earned another free Starbucks coffee!

My free coffee:  A venti, smoked butterscotch soy latte with 1/3 the sweetener.  So yummy!

Speaking of yummy, the Clackamas County Sheriff's department, had some of it's finest specimens at my regular Starbucks.  It made the coffee go down so nicely, to have their presence there! (Umm...have I mentioned how much I love a man in a uniform? Yup.)   

Right on time, my favorite bus driver arrived. Greeted me with a smile. We chatted for a few minutes before she dropped me off at my church job.

My Church job. :)

This is the Springwater Trail that runs along Johnson Creek near Milwaukie.  I was on my way to drop off the remainder of my rental application...keep praying!

Johnson Creek is getting dangerously high and quite angry looking!   

I made it to the gym! I am trying something new: Exercise breaks. I do not have time in my life for the luxury of full workouts now that I am working more hours. So I plan on popping in for 20 minute mini sessions!  Today I focused on arms. :)

And I rewarded myself with a gluten free brownie and a "Big Ass" cup of mint tea at Pappacinos at the end of my teaching day. The barista there is hilarious. He told me about a coffee shop he used to work at that had small, medium and "big ass" sizes.  :) 

And that, my friends was my day in pictures!

Hope you had a Happy Monday!

My fruit of the spirit today (Galatians 5:22-23) was goodness.  And as I walked home, after a very productive day, I felt God's presence.  I realized I could have been worried and anxious.  But I felt like He was holding my hand and saying,
"I got this!"

Peace and goodness,

Zita :)

Year Two, Day 288: I Found a Place!

This is truly amazing.

God is so good.

All the time!

I posted on Facebook my housing plight yesterday afternoon. And so many of my wonderful friends had helpful suggestions. Several offers for roommates came in.  But most of them so far from my work.

Then, I was heading home after teaching and just felt the need to sit and think.  Of course sitting and thinking go so much better with a cheeseburger on a rice cake, and what do you know...there I was getting off the bus in from of a McDonald's!

So I ordered a quarter pounder with cheese, ditched the bun and plopped it down between two rice cakes (I always carry emergency rice cakes in my bags these days).

I opened up Facebook and found a message from the pastor at my church job. She and her family have a room in their basement that they have been wanting to rent. But they were hesitant to put up an ad. They preferred knowing the person.

And here I am!  This is a blessing in so many ways! I will help them by paying rent and being a p…

Year Three, Day 83: Prednisone, Grumpy Doc and the Pentateuch!

I barely hacked at all last night.
Probably due to the Prednisone my doctor prescribed me. I was hoping I'd get a new doctor this time around at the clinic that accepts my Oregon Health Plan coverage. But there he was. Grumpy Doc.
But my appointment was pleasant. I greeted him and asked him how he was. He lightened up and even smiled during our visit. I wonder if he has a rough life.  It turns out we have the same "virus". Yes virus. I do not have a bacterial infection. My stats show me as a very healthy woman!  
BP: 100/70, Pulse 79, temp 96.7, Weight 182 lbs. (My weight loss has stalled. After I did the 10-Day Grain Detox, I weakened and ate a few meals with much rice.  I have SOOO missed rice. But since then, I've gained two pounds, so today I'm going back to no grains.  For the time being.  I think I will allow a bit of rice now and then, but I still am looking at 40 more pounds that I'd like to drop. So must be strong!)
I told Grumpy Doc I hav…

Year Two, Day 305: The Secret is Out!

I will never get used to losing an hour of sleep. But got of bed and headed to church did I.

And ironically, I took this photo. At the crossroads!  I was so tired, I did not realize there was a crosswalk in the background until just now.

After church today, I stopped for lunch.  Opened up Facebook. And lo and behold my daughter and son-in-law have announced their pregnancy!

I admit, I have known for a few weeks.

And I have been bursting with the news! She made me promise not to post on Facebook or blog about my first grandbaby until she and her husband felt ready to announce it to the world.

I am so happy!

Nothing like a new life to fill you with hope!

It was funny how she broke the news to me.

About 2 weeks ago, I get a text message.  She had sent me an ultrasound picture with the following message: "Honey Dog would like you to know that she is going to be a big sister."

I immediately texted her back:

"Honey Dog is pregnant?"

Then I stopped in my tracks. Just stood …
