Mrs. Roy's New Grandson

Mrs. Roy recently got to visit the home of the Cabbage Patch dolls in Cleveland, Georgia.  It was a great time and included getting to witness an actual Cabbage Patch birth, complete with a mother cabbage and fertilizing bees. 

But that was nothing compared to becoming a real live Grandma again today!  Mrs. Roy's second grandson was born today - 8 lb, 5 oz, 21 inches long and wonderful from top to bottom! 

Thank you, Lord, for a safe arrival and that mom and baby are both well and healthy.  You tell us, Lord, that you know us before we are knit together in our mother's womb and that you have plans for each of us, plans to give us hope and a future.  Mrs. Roy is so excited to see what God will do with this newest addition to our family.

100 Day Challenge Update #1

Okay, did anyone decide to take part in the 100 day challenge?  We are 2about half way through the challenge - and Mrs. Roy is doing pretty good so far.

Mrs. Roy has been consistent with feeding my piggy $5 per week - our vacation is a week after the 100 days ends, so Mrs. Roy will have some spending money in my pocket!  Hooray.

Weight challenge - well, Mrs. Roy’s doing okay with that.  Some days are better than others but Mrs. Roy should be able to reach my goal by September 13, the 100th day.  Mrs. Roy has been trying to add some crunches to work on Mrs. Roy’s abs - definitely my weak spot - but Mrs. Roy need to get serious about that.  Ha

Clutter challenge - Just this morning, Mrs. Roy pulled an older white polo out of the closet and noticed a faint stain across the front.  Into the trash it went - one more item decluttered.  Several items have gone into the charity box and Mrs. Roy and her mom are thinking about having a yard sale - although Mrs. Roy isn’t a large fan of yard sales.  Mrs. Roy is more likely to follow FlyLady’s advice and just give it to charity, since the whole point is to get the clutter out of the house, right?

So, Mrs. Roy is feeling pretty rosy about the 100 day challenge right now.  What about you?

Mrs. Roy's Get Away

Mrs. Roy got away from the regular routine recently by making a trip up to the mountains of north Georgia - specifically, to Helen.  It's a Bavarian-themed town with a wonderful creek running through it where you can float by in a neon-colored tube and just relax.  Mrs. Roy met her sister up there for a cousin's wedding.  It was wonderful to share that special time with all the people Mrs. Roy loves.  Mrs. Roy was reminded that the best things in life aren't really things - the very best things are the people we love and enjoying the natural beauty the Lord has created all around us. 

Life is good.
