I was diagnosed with Celiac disease almost 4 years ago. I have been trying to be healthier since then. I am eating better. However, I do still like my sugar, but try not to eat it as much. I have decided that it's okay to indulge once in awhile with the family but I am trying not to have it in my diet as much. I think that since I am trying we are all doing better with how we eat.
So today I made my laundry detergent and my body cream as well as getting my other goals accomplished. I started working out today on my treadmill (the weather has been a little cold to go walk in the mornings here). I ran 3/4 of a mile and walked 1 and 1/4 miles. I also spent time on my weight lifting. It has been a good day and I feel like a success!! I like days like today!

On Friday we took a day off and went hiking together as a family. We haven't had many days to do this, but with school out for UEA we took advantage. Here are some of the pictures that I took while we were out. The beauty that was in this area was fabulous! We went to Tony Grove up Logan canyon. Sam came here with some guys snowmobiling last winter and he was surprised to see it without everything being covered by snow. What a beautiful area!!

|Hannah at warm-up's|
|Supporting the Team|
|Watching Second Half and cheering them on!|
Earlier in the season Hannah had received a concussion. This after her brain injury last year. So the coach didn't start her at all after that. He would let her play the second half of each game. I'm not sure of his logic as she had been his starting keeper for the past 2 years. However, we all tried to support him in this decision.
|Showing Great Sportsmanship!|

So this is how I love spending some of my Fall days. Today was a wonderful day. I felt like I accomplished alot. At the time of this post my last batch of peaches was in the water bath. I canned a bushel and a half, that makes a total of 42 quarts and 5 pints (I ran out of quart bottles). They looked so beautiful and colorful sitting on my cupboard cooling. I will give some of them to my children and keep the rest. I like eating peaches and toast on Sunday evenings. It is one of my favorite things. It's simple, but that's how I like things. There's also a cricket somewhere behind those bottles. He snuck in with the peaches, but that didn't even seem to throw me. He's nice and cozy warm amongst those bottles tonight. I hope he enjoys his Fall day, because tomorrow I'll have to vacuum him up. I love these simple pleasures.
