Good morning! So I haven't been posting anything at all because I have been very busy knitting a quilt for Tai and healing from knee surgery. This week, I am working hard to get back to eating healthy and exercising. This morning I made homemade pumpkin yogurt. It was delicious! I didn't take a picture. However, I made so much that I was allowed to have that I am saving half of it for later to have as a snack. I took 2 cups of vanilla yogurt, 1/3 of a cup of pumpkin and sprinkled on some pumpkin pie spice. It tasted just like noosa yogurt and was only a fraction of the calories!

Stay tuned because I am going to be bringing you more of my daily getting healthy goals as I go on. I promise. Also it's senior year for college and senior year for my baby in high school. I am super stoked about these!

Have a fantabulous day!

We have a Puppy!

So I convinced my husband to get a new puppy a few months ago. I'm so excited about this. She is such a beautiful and good puppy. She will be 12 weeks old in two days. We have had her in our home since she was 5 weeks old. Everyone, meet Viena Mocha. She is a Yorkie Pom or Porkie. What a fabulous edition to our family!

Today is a day of Thanksgiving.  It is a day when people are supposed to stop and remember what they are thankful for in this day and age. It is a reminder of how far we have come in our unity of a nation because of those who came before us. It seems to me, like so many people aren't thankful for this nation anymore. Politics and negativities have been put before unity and love. It's sad really. People would rather play video games or surf the internet than spend time with their family, talk, be present in the real world, or even exist in a real life social setting.
Today, I planned to make a Thanksgiving dinner for my family. We don't have a lot of money because I am currently in college full time and we live off of my husband's disability which isn't much in its self. However, I planned a special dinner. It had to be tweaked because Tatty was coming home from college and she is now a vegan due to food allergies. It was somewhat difficult to do. I was able to pull it off though. One of the reason's why she is a vegan is because she is very allergic to garlic. I was able to make our turkey today without garlic just so that she could eat it. She is allergic to milk but that didn't stop us from making mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, cornbread stuffing, cheesecake, and pumpkin pie. I had to omit the cinnamon because she is allergic to that too but it really didn't matter. Nobody noticed. The turn out for our dinner was amazing. The turkey was so delicious and the sides were just scrumptious! I can't wait to try the real part of the pies.
Today, I am thankful that I could make a full meal for my family and not have to worry how much it would cost. I'm thankful for certain grocery stores that brought down the price of their vegetables and turkey's to $.39 a pound. I'm thankful that my whole family is under the same roof right now. I'm thankful that they are all getting along. I'm thankful that I have a bed to sleep in and a roof over our heads. I'm also thankful that I was able to facetime my mom, dad, and sisters while cooking this morning. That was especially special to me.

Finally, I am thankful that I am getting baptized on Saturday by our Children's Youth Pastor. I am very much looking forward to this. I know I'm ready. God told me so.
I'm also thankful for you who read my blog, even when the posts are far and few between.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and a safe Black Friday.

There are many things that I'm thankful about. I'm thankful that we have a home where we ha e raised our three kids. I'm thankful for the animals in our home that bring a smile to our faces everyday. I'm thankful that I have a loving husband who despite his own struggles in life, loves me I conditionally and shows me that everyday.
I'm thankful that I can go back to college to attain a Medical Assistant degree. I'm thankful for the support I have to do this.
Most of all, I'm thankful for God who has guided me to and through this so far. I'm Thankful that he whispered his journey in my ear. I'm thankful that he has pro ides for our family when we didn't know where the money for our next meal was going to come from or how to pay our bills or how to pay for gas for our car. I'm thankful for the love he brings to my heart each and every day.

What are you thankful for today?

I have talked about this before, but I really want to share it again. About 5 years ago or so, we bought a wood cook stove. We were going to work on becoming more earth efficient. We were trying to save money. The problem with the stove that we had was that it wasn't a very good stove. It wasn't efficient. Most of all, it was very difficult to keep lit. 

This year, we have found the cook stove of my dreams. I am so excited to bring this stove in our house. Currently, it is sitting in our garage because it is 90 degrees out and we don't have the space for it yet. So we are working on the space to make for it and prepare our house for winter. One of the reasons why I am so excited is because it can be hooked up to a hot water heater and heat the hot water in our house instead of having to use oil. It is also newer and more efficient. I am so excited. I've never been this excited for winter or fall for that matter. Here's to the new stove. Here's to better efficiency. 

On another note, we are getting ready to send two kids to college. Our baby is a junior this year. It is a bittersweet year. I'm excited for them. I love that they are going on new adventures. I'm excited that they are heading out into the world. I never thought it would happen. But it has. 

That is all for now. Have a fabulous evening or day depending on where you are. I know I will.
