Boy is it warm here in So. California!! High 90's and even over 100 in some places. Whew, I really hope this is our last little wave of summer heat. I was sooo enjoying the cooler Fall temps and the need to curl up with my soft little throw blanket for TV at night.
I did want to let you know and praise God that my step dads surgery went very well on Tues. He is S L O W L Y recovering of course, but so far everything looks good. He managed to keep some broth down this afternoon, so I think he is moving along as they expected. Please pray he continues to improve and will be able to go home soon. : ) My mom is somewhat lost without him but Joe's daughter is here to of course see her dad and is staying with my mom and getting her back and forth to the hospital etc. We are all VERY grateful for her help. I spent all day Tues at the hospital and most of today as well and it is hard to see him just lying there in his bed, (he has always been soo active and self sufficient) but he is still managing to crack a joke or two (when he gets awake enough that is, haha). Anyway, thank you for all of your prayers for him.
Soo many of you are posting yummy recipes for pumpkin bread, soups, and other Fall comfort food. Right now I guess it is one thing I can be grateful for about this heat...it doesn't sound nearly as appealing. (see there is always "something" to be grateful for, haha) I am having a HARD time keeping my head on the page of dieting right now. I am still "on it" but I could soooo easily tip off, haha...Hope you all have a wonderful week-end, and count your many blessings.
