Project 365, Challenge 30 X 5 - 100

Greetings to everyone! Two weeks worth of pictures are posted on my photo blog, Shutter Clicks. Whenever you get the chance, hop on over and check them out. I'll be posting some other pictures from my Chicago trip as time permits. Thanks to Sara for hosting Project 365. Be sure to visit her blog and see other's photos too.

Linda @ 2nd Cup of Coffee is hosting "phase 2" of a challenge to get moving. The first two weeks were pretty easy for me. This first week of phase 2 started on 4/14 and I haven't been moving as much. I'm still wearing my step counter and logged over 9000 steps on the 14th, 15th, and 16th. On Friday the 17th, I logged over 17,000 steps. That was my shopping day in downtown Chicago. Yesterday I logged about 7800 steps even with the train ride. I did get to do more shopping before catching the train. The second part of this challenge is to knock out 100 calories each day. That hasn't been too easy with all the great food in Chicago. Let's just say.....this week I'll do better.

I'm off to get caught up on chores and homework. It's good to be home and I'm thankful for safe traveling. Most of all, I'm thankful for my wonderful husband. We celebrated our 6th anniversary today. We're thankful for every day God allows us to spend together. Be sure to tell your family how much they are loved today, This Day.

Peace and Joy,

Numbers 6:24-26 (NIV) 24 " ' "The LORD bless you and keep you;

25 the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you;

26 the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace." '

Howdy Sis! I think the dandelions are a good thing. Don't use pesticides on them and pull up the whole thing root and all. Tear off the leaves and use them in your salad (yes really, they are good for you), let the roots dry..chop them up and make tea with them (it MAY be good for your liver and MAY clean your blood) That's why God made them to pop up in spring. To help with detox from the heavy winter foods.

Just a tid bit from a gardening maniac that keeps forgetting her camera!! LOL.

God's peace,
