Day 185 - Tuesday Triumphs

Tuesday, June 02, 2015

We are finding new ways to help people at Habitat for Humanity Lake County! An elderly veteran who rents his house is getting a wheelchair ramp, and we have found some funds to help a retired schoolteacher whose roof is about to collapse because of despicable contractors who don't do the right thing. It certainly has been an adventure trying to find the right funding source to help people!

My relationship with my boss continues to be challenging, but we are making it work. I'm going to leave it at that, for now anyway.

It was a good day, nutritionally, until I got home from work. The pork chops smoking on the grill, and the roasted corn on the cob, might have put a chink in my goals for today, but boy, were they good!

Summer is about balancing favorite summer foods with equally favorite summer activities. As long as you keep them in balance, then all should be good, right? Keep up the activity, friends, so you can enjoy your favorite summer foods! (Especially when those foods include healthy choices like watermelon and peaches - YUM!!!!!)

Keep Sparking, friends!

    Good work, helping people at Habitat! I agree, people should enjoy yummy summer food. As long as you're active, it helps mitigate whatever you eat. I've been wanting a peach! That sounds so good. We've had watermelon. My mom really likes it. We have it nearly every day. Except I only like it the first two or three days, and then I think it's too old.

    Helping those in need is a noble and rewarding job. Grilled pork chops are hard to pass up

    How rewarding to help people in such need!
    I hope the relationship with your boss continues to work...it doesn't have to be perfect, just work!
    Oh, summer foods...I can't wait for tomatoes, cantaloupe, honeydew, and peaches!
    Looking forward to the boat?
    Have a great day, my friend!
    Hugs!

    Congratulations on finding the funding for another two people - glad your interaction with your boss is ok for the moment and I hope he missed your input while you were away! Melons are so delicious and when I have some barbecued food, I try to leave the bread in the basket and to only use sauces by the teaspoonful! Enjoy your summer, Steve!
