A Bowlful of Cherries, or the pits

Hi everybody. Since I have a little time thought I would stop and do a little post. This morning the temps are so much cooler and more pleasant outside than it has been in the past week. We were in the high 90's most of the week, and today it is only suppose to be around 75 or so. We got a cold front come in last night with the rain storm we got. Cooled things greatly. Today it looks like rain, it is overcast and dreary...but occassionally I like days like that.Perfect day for sitting home, curled up watching some old movies or reading and taking catnaps. Alas, it is a work day so that isn't going to happen.

So much has been going on in my head and in real life that I don't know where to start.
Yesterday I had to go back to the eye doctor to have my eyes checked. It has been five months since I have had my lasik surgery and although my eyes did well, my right eye didn't do as well as it could have. Apparently it is seeing about 70% of the way it should, so they have scheduled me for a enhancement on that eye next monday. I knew upfront this was a possibility, but had to wait until my eyes were completely stable before they could go in and do another procedure. Basically I will be having the same procedure as the first time but they will be making a slight change. Please pray that it will go well and that when it is over, the procedure will have been successful. Thanks!

I mentioned in a earlier post that I am moving my blog to a new web address soon, actually will most likely be this weekend. For the same reason I am wanting to move it, I am thinking I will do away with my website, Cindy's Cozy Corner. It sits on a domain that was my former name and quite honestly don't want to keep using it. As well as my email addresses. Most likely will be changing that too. Although I loved having my website, I have neglected it alot in recent months, even years. I don't have the time to devote to it. Plus I pay for that service. The only sad thing is I have tons of wonderful graphics that I would love to use...but don't have the time. So do I or don't I?

I have added another little goal for myself...I am trying to lose some weight. When I went to the doctor a few weeks back that was the final straw. I tipped the scales weighing more than I have ever weighed without being pregnant. I know that it comes from eating out, and unhealthy eating habits...so decided I want to shed a few pounds so that I feel better about myself. Starting to dislike how I feel in my clothes. Since starting this I have lost about five pounds. I am packing my lunch and bringing that to work, drinking lots of water, and eating lots and lots of fruit and veggies. I try to have a sensible dinner and watching my serving sizes. Basically I am trying to make better choices. Now I need to add exercising, but having done so yet. I am sure that will come with time. One step at a time for me.

Is is me or what, this past weekend, actually maybe this last week, I have felt kind of out of sorts. I have felt really disconnected. I can't put my fingers on it exactly. I know that my routine at work has been different so not sure if that is what is throwing me off or what. But I hate this feeling. Seems like I was at such peace for awhile and now everything is in a chaotic state. It really isn't, just feels that way. I have to remind myself that feelings are just that. They aren't what is really happening. But why? I think for me it is spirital related. I have been saturating myself in reading my bible and other biblical readings and asking God to continue to work in me and help me grow, and I am thinking that these are 'growing pains'. Which if they are, I failed a test miserably last night with my daughter. I so desire to be the woman God created me to be. I do want to be the wife, mother and friend that I know he would want me to be....but have been feeling that I haven't really been doing those jobs that well either. I keep
wondering what God is trying to show/tell me. Sometimes I have to have neon sign that tells me. Please pray for me.

Should really scoot, want to try to make a post or two at my homemaking site and cooking site.

A place I found a while back and visited again the other day I am going to make as my featured site: Warm Pie Happy Home, RuthAnn has a wonderful way of telling a story. A california girl who moved to the Ozarks. Great read!

Hugs and Blessings,

I do hope all goes well with your eye surgery! I'll keep you in my prayers.
Wish we could have some cooler temps here, it was 100 yesterday! I haven't even checked the weather for today, I'm just assuming HOT! and I bet I'm not wrong.
Good job on losing a few pounds, keep it up :)
Have a great day
Hugs Denise

Hey Cindy!

Sorry to hear your one eye is giving you some issues. I will be praying for you that your surgery is successful!

As I was reading about your weight/health stuff, I was thinking about how the reality of our age is starting to hit me. I can't eat the junk I have my whole life and I can't just sit around - I need to get moving and eat the right stuff so my body can process it all. This aging stuff is SO overrated! hee hee

Hope you are feeling better regarding your "growing pains" soon!

Hugs xo

Hi Cindy! Catching up with you! Sorry that I have caused some worry again. I've been up to my ears in pictures (explained in my blog), but am now seeing the end! I have missed you all.

The 'growing pains' are not pleasant, but a necessary part of our life. I've felt a bit 'out of sorts' lately too, & I do not like it! :-)

Hope you have a blessed week. Hugs!

Hi Cindy,
I thought I would stop in tonight to see what you were doing. I go through those times too that something doesn't seem right. I get out some learning materials and get into the Word... start asking God to reveal to me what is going on. I hope to see your new site soon. HUGS
