Motivational Goals Week 1


Goal for this week:
Stop getting angry about silly things.
Be grateful for everything I have.
Focus on good not bad.


That sounds like a good goal.
Girl if you have 3 great sons you are a truly blessed woman.


We had take out pizza because I had a spell with my AFIB this morning.
But my goal is not totaly a loss. I made home made bread pudding.
I could only eat a small bowl since I have diabetes but my son dug in.
Love the cinnamon and nutmeg.


Oh Sunshine that looks so good! Will you share your receipie? My husband loves bread pudding but I’ve never made it for him. It would make such a nice surprise for him! That is if its not too difficult for me to make. 😕


I have made this so much I do not use a recipe any longer but this is how I do it.
Use white bread. If it is fresh or a bit hard no matter. But I use bread that is a bit hard. You know like some one forgot to close it proper and it will not do for sandwiches any longer.
This is fo egg 2 people.
Nutmeg Bread Pudding
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 c milk
1/4 c butter cut into cubes
3/4 c sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
About 9 slices bread
In a large bowl beat eggs
Combine milk and butter add to eggs
Add all the spices to liquid stir
Tear bread into small pieces
Add to egg and milk mixture
Stir gently
Pour into 11" X 7" greased baking dish
Bake at 350 until knife inserted 1 " from edge comes out clean 40 - 45 minutes

  • Optional add a cup of raisins.
    I like raisins but my son does not so I leave them out for him.

Good luck this is a easy and very good dessert.
Let me know if you liked it. Don’t be alarmed because it puffs up. As it cools it will sink slightly.
If you have any leftover refrigerate it tastes great cold.


I also have 11 wonderful grandchildren. Seven boys and 4 girls.


I have 3 grandsons 2 granddaughters and 1 great granddaughter.


I had supper alone. My son had to work till 1 am. He did his shift and 4 hrs.of someone else shift.
Someone had a family emergency so he stayed so they could leave
Once they close he has to help do all.the side work.
I made him a plate he can eat cold. Salad, a sandwich, and fruit.
Now I am going to bed it has been a long day.


Thank you Sunshine!!! I am going to suprise him with it tonight. I’ll let you know how it turns out!
Its a dreary day…foggy and damp. I have to get out to get my allergy shots though i would rather stay at home cuddled up with Ginger in my quilt.


I DID IT!! thanks so much Sunshine!!


I invested in some plants for my new home.


Very pretty!!


Looks good hope he loves as much as I do. It is an easy dessert and tastes good to.


Love the plants so pretty.


Love the plants.


They add more life.


I agree plants are important in life.
My journey this last 3 years has been so difficult I lost all my plants. Money is so tight I have to choose wisely how to spend.
Maybe some I can buy a want instead of a necessity till I am to broke.


I am so sorry to hear that. I have been there.
I’ve been so poor I didn’t have money for groceries. I had to rely on what I could get from the food shelf.
Amazingly enough I still have three plants left after my broken ankle they wouldn’t allow me to walk on for eight months. Due to my balance issues, from the stroke, I couldn’t use crutches and my knee hurt too bad to use a knee cart. So, I was stuck in a wheelchair for the duration and not able to be in my home because it is not wheelchair friendly. Anyway, my son, while checking on my pets didn’t think to water my plants. Lost all but the three.
I am able to replace them now due to an inheritance from my father.


So glad those 3 survived.
My son and I hit rock bottom at one point. He had me go to a shelter for women to live while he lived in his truck.
It took 7 mo for us to get a place to live. In November it was 2 years since we got back up enough to have our own place.
I am determined to not fall and so is he.
We have each other and just do as we can.


I can be grateful that I’ve always had a home.
I’m so glad your son and you were able to get a place!
Your positive attitude is wonderful!
