Today I was honored to attend the wedding of my friend Rhonda's son. Though I've not been officially introduced to Nathan, I've known Rhonda and Stewart for 5 - 6 years now and I've seen Nathan's pics in their home.. I know their daughter Stephanie & her family too. So I didn't feel too intrusive today, they always make me feel so welcome as tho I'm a part of their family. I love friends like that and I don't feel I have enough of those friends. The wedding was lovely, quaint yet enough love in the chapel. Weddings always make me teary eyed because the magic of love is very powerful and in its early stages its intense, intriguing and addictive. As long as you fuel the fire, the Passion can continue to grow and before you know it, well, let's just say 2 really do become 1 and your heart can't beat without the other. I've been blessed to have seen the power of true love and how when one dies the other cannot live. I really do hope this love hits Nathan & Michelle. I hope they continue to fuel the flames of Passion and I hope they never lose faith in each other. They're a beautiful couple and I wish them the very best. Nathan & Michelle, may God richly bless the two of you in everything you dream & everything you do! Vaya Con Dios!

Yesterday it did nothing but rain, all day! I did manage to get my 3 mile treadmill walk in, and come to find out, my truck is having problems again :( I'm going to have to take it to the shop today if they will have time. I'm so not ready to make an auto purchase, I spent last night looking on cars.com and its crazy the prices attached to these things, some sedans cost more than suvs and suvs are around 20k .....I'm going to have to get a second job here at this rate just to pay the damned thing each month. Ugh! I need a moneyfall! Just my luck, when it rains, it pours! And yesterday, that was literally what was happening! :(

Today was the Mosaics art fair in St. Charles, we thought it would be nice to take Spanky out there. My friend had a booth out there with her art displayed for sale, & whenever she has a booth going, if its my weekend off, I enjoy going wherever to see her and all the other artists. My kinda thing! :).
Spanky enjoys walking around, people give him treats, lots of attention & compliment how adorable he is.
We had lunch out on the patio of a quaint little restaurant and the cute guy ordered a 32 oz fried chicken sandwich! WOW! That was quite a bit of chicken!Needless to say he didn't eat very much of that! :) Hit up Trader Joe's on the way home & now we are fixing to eat dinner off the grill! I'm excited! It was a great day today, and I'm thankful for all my blessings!

I just finished my 3 mile walk/run on the treadmill, stepped off, took a swig of my poweraid when the lights went out. I'm standing in the dark basement thinking; did my treadmill trip a switch? I'm kinda leary now because of the treadmill mishap a few days ago...right at 3 miles my treadmill quit... I walked up the stairs to check the breakers and found nothing out of the ordinary. I called the power company and they were so kind to inform me that 74 people in my area are without power just like me! Isn't that nice? LOL. I still have my George Foreman video to do, but so what, I can take a little break right? I did some chores around the house that don't necessarily require power other than my own manual labor power, and here it is over an hour later & still no power. Well, there is still more I can do around here so I guess I better hop to it. I can't afford to run down my phone battery blogging & all..that would mean I would have to go drive around wasting fuel for my cell phone..and its completely not worth all that.

The "munchies" aside, pot smokers are actually less likely than non-tokers to be obese, according to a study by a French researcher.
The examination of data from two separate studies of more than 50,000 U.S. adults found that 14% to 17% of people who smoked pot at least three days per week were obese, compared with 22% to 25% among non-cannibis users.
The research team headed by Yann Le Strat, a psychiatrist at the Louis-Mourier Hospital in Colombes, France, appears in the Sept. 15 issue of the American Journal of Epidemiology.
"Initially, we thought we made a mistake," says Le Strat, according to Reuters. He says he and co-author Bernard Le Foll checked the results several times to make sure they were correct.
"This is only a preliminary result," he says. "It doesn't mean that marijuana does actually help you lose weight, but perhaps there is a component that does."
The researchers did not examine whether diet and exercise habits were different between the two groups but did find that cigarette usage had no influence on the obesity findings, Reuters reports.

I'm very sad to close up the pool, summer leaving breaks my heart. I love summer, I like autumn, but I love love love summer. Wonderful memories were made this summer, sad ones too, but I'm hopeful to make some nice fall memories. Chili, roast, stew & football await me. I must admit, that does sound comforting. Still, I'm not ready and I'm going into fall kicking & screaming! :(
