Vegas Pictures





Here are a couple of pictures from my Las Vegas trip. The top picture is the staff in our office who went on the trip. My boss is standing next to me with the white purse. The other picture is me and another Hygienist in our office tensing (pronounced tenzing, meaning relaxing) our jaw muscles during part of the seminar. The seminar was on Neuromuscular Dentistry, which is how the bite (the way your teeth fit together) affects the whole rest of the body. If not right it can cause chronic migraines, neck pain, back pain, ear congestion, tingling in the fingertips, etc.... It was fascinating. This week I have begun to implement some of what I learned in our office. It's great to be able to help people that are in chronic pain.

A hard lesson to learn

The other day Dave looked out the front window and there were 5 deer in our front island garden where we planted all of our hyacinths and crocuses in the fall. He scared them off. I didn't realize it, but they evidently love to eat the bulbs or the greens of those flowers. Well, today I went outside to weed and noticed that some of the bulbs were pulled right out of the ground, while other plants had been nibbled right down to the ground. I was devastated. I called up the garden store and they said that I needed to spray them and our young cherry tree with "Liquid Fence". I wish I knew sooner, but I guess it's a lesson learned. I put the bulbs that were pulled out back into the ground so hopefully they don't die. I will wait a few days to see what flowers come out.

Off to Vegas

I won't be blogging for a few days because I will be going to Las Vegas with a few of my coworkers tomorrow. We will be attending a 3 day dental seminar at Las Vegas Institute. This is it pictured. I am not really looking forward to leaving my family for so long, but I guess I'll be learning a lot of new things, so that part is good. Thank God most of the seminars I have to go to are local. I'll be returning Saturday night at 10:00pm.

Cool Video

I came across this video the other day and have watched it several times since. It is just fascinating to me. The way God wired this guy's brain is truly amazing!

How do I download the actual video onto my blog site? I signed up to do that, but can't figure it out. ?????

"However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me-the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace." Acts 20:24

This was our memory verse for Community Bible Study this week. It really makes me think...how many times do I lose sight of my purpose in a day? How selfish I am with my time, and how busy I often get with the unimportant or meaningless things.

Please God, use me for your purpose, to give you glory and honor.

(Can you believe when I pushed the publish button, my filter crossed out Jesus' name?! I guess it's considered a swear word now. I had to turn off my filter in order to publish this.)

Melting.....



Our igloo now has nice big windows

Good bye igloo


Our igloo is melting FAST. It was 65 degrees out today, and the previous few days it's been in the 40's and 50's. Could spring be here?!!!

New Hearth


My hubby built the hearth to our fireplace this weekend. Could the stone be going up soon too?!

Ouch!


Well, when we returned from Florida we didn't have the snow tires put back on my car because we thought spring was too close now to do that. This morning on my way to Bible study, I made a left turn and my car slid to the right on the snow covered road, after I turned....right into a neighbor's mailbox. The mailbox is fine , but my car said, "Ouch" as the side mirror was busted. Boo hoo! Come on spring, where are you? It's supposed to be 40 on Saturday, I can't wait!
