they are all good! and many of them I practice regularly.

thinking of #37 though - many times, since my children were little when we bake Cookies we batch up some to give away. When you give a homeless man homemade Cookies, be prepared for tears. I can not tell you how many men have told me that no one has made them cookies since their (Grandma, Mama, Aunt so and so)

some would say keep these for your own kids (not being mean, just feeling like they didn't deserve it) and my kids would say, nah. she makes us cookies ALL the time, these we made for YOU.

now adays I just usually participate in room at the inn when I have a chance, which is a local program where different churches or civic groups in the area sign up to host 8-10 men one night a week during the fall/winter months. Our church does Tuesday nights. Several of us sign up and provide a meal which we share with them. Always try to fix what I would fix for my own family dinners, and it is a good thing, a nice evening every time. Hearing people's stories, sharing yours. 2 of the guys from the church stay all night and we send them off with Breakfast and a bagged lunch the next day. The program helps a lot of people get back on their feet.

I was homeless with 5 kids following my divorce 20 years ago, so it matters to me.

This was our sunset last night.

Can I just add another one? when you can do so safely and the weather is lovely - go for a walk by moonlight. It is soothing to the soul.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
