Okay, here's a little update. I took my computer in yesterday to have Corey, our technology guru, look and see why I was having so many issues with my computer. Seems that I had multiple viruses on it. My antivirus software? Zone Alarm. Apparently it didn't do what I paid for it to do, and oh, they have a 30 day guarantee so no pro-rated refund for me. Nice. Corey installed a free antivirus program. I wish I had consulted him, or my daughter Anna, in the first place.

Daily stats:
Type: Walk/jog
Route: Deadend/back

Time: 25
Average heart rate: couldn't find my hrm
Maximum heart rate: couldn't find my hrm
Don't know where I am in regard to last Thursday (will update when I have my own computer back.)

It was a beautiful morning for a walk. My right knee was giving me some trouble - I think it's because I used the highest incline on the treadmill yesterday and then didn't stretch enough afterwards. The scale is moving downward but I am still creating the carb cycling baseline. I am in ketosis again, as of last night so that is a very good thing.

I have no meetings tonight - whoo hoo - so I am going to check inventory and make some jar candles. I need to buy at least 2 more carts and it totally ticks me off that the price has jumped from 15 dollars to 22. I also need to order more pillar wax, but I am going to wait until after the next craft show when there is more money available. I do, however, have lots of container wax so that is where I will concentrate my efforts for a while.

Word of the day:

Thursday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel
Lk 11:5-13
Jesus said to his disciples:
“Suppose one of you has a friend
to whom he goes at midnight and says,
‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread,
for a friend of mine has arrived at my house from a journey
and I have nothing to offer him,’
and he says in reply from within,
‘Do not bother me; the door has already been locked
and my children and I are already in bed.
I cannot get up to give you anything.’
I tell you, if he does not get up to give him the loaves
because of their friendship,
he will get up to give him whatever he needs
because of his persistence.

“And I tell you, ask and you will receive;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks, receives;
and the one who seeks, finds;
and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
What father among you would hand his son a snake
when he asks for a fish?
Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg?
If you then, who are wicked,
know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit
to those who ask him?”

Thoughts from the cornfield:
God's doesn't always give us what we ask for, but he always gives us what we need.


God bless the troops!

Glad to hear the scale is moving in the right direction again.
