the Big 4 Ice Caves...

It seems cooler this morning tho my bedroom never got below 70 last night. It's supposed to be cooler today, but after yesterday's 88, I'm not sure if it's gonna be comfortable. I think I've decided to got the the Big 4 and the Ice Caves. I will get more exercise and be able to get some nice pics. I can stop at the Lake 22 trailhead, too.

Friday night heat...

It's after nine in the evening. My fan has been going on high all day and it is still 78+ i my room. It's gonna be awhile before I get to sleep. I suppose I could take some benadryl but I'd rather not.

I'm going up in the mountains tomorrow. I'm not sure whether I'll go fishing or go up to the Big 4 Ice Caves or do the Mountain Loop. I'll make up my mind in the morning, prolly on the way.

Morning bg is 168. Want to get it to 140 or under. Weight is 236. so I am down a little bit.

I've got chicken Soup Brigade today and group tonight I will be filling out job apps to day in the morning. I need to set some time aside for my bible study. I want to continue to do my walking./ I am planning to clean my bike up some and start riding it again. Lotsa "plans" .

It's foggy and cool this morning. I like it. The fan is in the widow on low. I can see drops of water in the screen and feel the cool moisture on my face pulled in by the fan. The weather is supposed to burn off and be sunny today.

The Fence...

It's cold [for July] and wet this morning. It will probably be good weather to work on the fence. Rich might be able to finish it today... tomorrow for sure.

I've been using my Life Recovery Bible to do a study [of sorts] of the Serenity Prayer.

[I didn't get back to that did I?]

Rich showed up abut a quarter to eight. He and chris worked solid to about 4PM. I helped some. Enough so I was very tired the rest of the evening. But, it's done. It's done.

Getting in Shape...

Pam is "out" doing whatever. I'm almost finished with my "Healthy Choice " Chicken Tortilla Soup. It's a keeper. I have to lose a lot of weight; 30 to 40 lbs. Portions sizes, appropriate e foods, and "fork down/spoon down" are going to be keys for me. That and choosing better snack foods. But portion size and slowing down or dragging out my meals are probably the biggest diet goals. I have to walk a lot more, too. Riding my bike once in a while wont hurt me an, either. I want to make use of to come up with different meals that would help me.

Serenity again...

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I cannot change other people. I must accept this. I can change the situation to protect myself from the things others say or do to hurt me. This will take courage. I don't have to be the victim of someone else's issues. I cannot "fix" their issues, but I can live my life with dignity.

Serenity Prayer

I need the serenity to accept the consequences of my actions. I need to own what I do, good or bad. It takes courage to step up and accept, own, the consequences of my-actions. Sometimes I do-this. Sometimes, I try to mitigate the impact. Mitigation usually is of little value.

Who am I, Jesus, that you call me by name? [Kim Hill]

Who am I on the inside where only God sees?

Who am I? Who is the person God created me to be? How does my life bring honor and glory and praise to you, Daddy?
