Magic Bag went Poof!

Hello my friends, isn't life wonderful. I am so happy today. I am sure most of you have heard that God has answered our prayers and Janine is going to be just fine. I have been smiling and thanking God all day since I received her e-mail...Oh life is good.

Now I am sitting here tonight by a cosy fire in a sparkling clean house that smells like a burnt corn field. I had put my magic bag in the micro wave to heat for my back and must of pushed the timer for longer than the normal two minutes required and boy what a mess it made. It melted and broke the cloth. My microwave is only a few months old, it is fine, no damage except it is badly stained inside. It is the smell that is horrible. I had all my windows opened today but I think it will only be time that will get rid of the smell. I have tried everything to removed the stains but they are there for good I'm sure. Another lesson learned.

My cleaning lady was here this morning and she cleaned my windows and blinds while I did my laundry and ironing. This afternoon I went for a walk and was outside for over an hour. It had rained earlier this morning but this afternoon was beautiful. The sun was shinning and the air was cool and crisp. A beautiful Fall day.

I watched my Yankees loose tonight, so now we go back to New York, that's okay we will win there....Go Yankees!

All in all just a great day full of wonderful news about Janine, and I am feeling happy and healthy again. I do hope you all enjoyed your day as I did mine. Be well my friends;

Good Night and God Bless.......and many, many hugs........:-)

Bernie it was lovely to meet you today. I am so glad you stopped by my blog. You left an amazing comment thank you for your kind words towards the weight loss. I truly know God works in mysterious ways and his ways may reveal themselves in due time, and they may not, but I believe in signs and it was truly a wonderful sign for you to have visited me today. Thank you for opening your heart and reading my story.


Brenda said...

I am glad that you had such a happy day. It made me glad to read about it and I am going to hop right over to Janine's blog to read her good news! Hallelujah! Loved your story about Mr. M as well.

Bernie....Yes, the news about Janine was wonderful! Reason to shout!! YES!
I'm sorry about your bag going 'poof'...and the smell that went with it. I'm glad your microwave wasn't damaged.
The sky here was a beautiful blue today...looked like a picture on a post card. Sounds like you had a beautiful afternoon, too. I love the fall of the year.
You are so sweet. I feel it...
Yep. I do.

Bernie said...

Janine, I know all of us are very happy about your wonderful news, as I know we all were praying so very hard.
I am feeling well Janine, stronger every day. Love you....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Heidi, it was my pleasure to visit you, and I was amazed with how well you are doing and very happy and proud for you. You are a true inspiration....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Brenda, it has been all good news so pleased and I know Janine will be so happy for your visit.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Jackie, I knew you would be as happy as I was with Janine's news. God is good.
I had a wonderful day, my walk was so refreshing and my skin was glowing when I came in...its been so long since I have had such good color....Luv ya......:-) Hugs

Diana said...

Good Morning Bernie,
Well it's just a shame that your house and micro couldn't have smelled like popcorn! But then you may have started to crave popcorn all of the time!
Thank you for letting us know about Janine. I have been wondering and wondering. Finally heard how Linda was doing yesterday, good news as well. This eases my mind and lets me know that God is still watching over us.
Bernie, did you try a Mr. Clean Magic eraser. That is what I use when all else fails,but start with a light touch or it can remove a finish. Love Di

Valerie said...

From now on, Bernie, all your days should be as happy as today

Blessings each day said...

So happy when you report a good day for you!

As for the microwave mishap, you can always try some solution that might be recommended on the Internet or you can just say, "Hmmm, now my microwave has character and is distinct."

blessings and hugs,


Wanda said...

Good morning Bernie, your post left me smiling for different reasons this morning...Janine of course, as we have already relayed back and forth in e-mails about her wonderful good news left me smiling again.

Then your magic bag explosion made me laugh, our e-mails about it, I thought it was a type of popcorn, "silly me" you had mentioned burned husks left stains on the microwave...I immediately pictured burned popcorn as when my mother overdid a bag which caught fire, destroyed my sister's microwave and left them with a smoke filled yucky smelling house. Live and learn!

The weather here is nice too, the leaves took a dramatic turn overnight...such deep deep gold and not many have fallen yet, but they will. Hope to capture it on camera.

Have a wonderful day Bernie.
Luv and Smiles,

Blessings each day said...

Forgot to say that I did say prayers of gratitude for Janine's news too.

Rose Marie Raccioppi said...

Good Morning Bernie, so pleased to read of your happy day in spite of the microwave mishap. You are held with the embrace of a SMILE.

Much love,

Oh Bernie I am so happy you are doing better. That fresh air is a wonderful tonic for sure. I am going over to say hi to Janine too, since I don't know her. I have gotten my blog settled a bit. I was having trouble with the HTML for the snow, shouda known. You mentioned my blog was slow in coming up, let me know if you notice any difference next time you visit. Thanks dear on.

Margie said...

Hi Bernie
I think I lost my comment ...trying again ...Blogger has been acting up lately.

Oh, good news on your blogger friend janie...I know how happy you are.

Oh my, a nice clean house that smells like a burnt corn field .... I do not think that would be a smell I would like.
Burn some lavender or cinnamon candles and that should help get rid of the odor.

Glad you are feeling well and happy.

Have a wondeful weekend and keep that joy in your heart.

Hugs my friend.


Gail said...


Oh my, good news indeed about Janine. Amen. :-)

And I SO Love that YOU are feeling happy and healthy. And ya, the horrible burnt corn smell will eventually go away.

Love to you

cinner said...

Hi Bernie, I am so glad about your friend Janine. You are a wonderful person. I am glad you did not burn yourself with that bag. I bought one that you had to soak in water first and then in the microwave, I kid you not, I just about burnt down the house, I remember that horrible smell. Have a fabulous weekend. Be well.

The Retired One said...

Yay, Janine!
There IS power in prayer, hey Bernie?
I am so happy you are happy and that she is better.
I had someone at the Assisted Living do the exact same thing with those comfort pillows in the smells for sure!
Take care and get a good night's sleep tonight. Glad you had a nice walk outside. It has been raining here for 3 days straight and tonight we are expecting snow. Yikes!

Bernie said...

Hi Diana, How goes the battle? I have been thinking of you all day.
I did try Mr. Clean Erasure, it helped a bit but the stains are there for good.
Hope Jake is better my friend..Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Val, thank you, I had another good one it:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Oh Marcy, I tried both, even dug out my old Martha Stewart book. The smell isn't as bad tonight.
Have a great weekend....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Wanda, I just assumed everyone called them Magic Bags, I'm not sure what other name they go by. The smell is better today though.. Hope you had a wonderful day, how is Alivia doing in shcool, Hugs to her and you...:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Marcy, so many prayers were answered on Janine's behalf and I know she appreciates all of them.
Luv ya....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Thank you Rose Marie, people have so many problems my microwave seems very small doesn't it...the air is better tonight....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Peggy, your blog was a bit faster downloading today, and oh yes it does feel wonderful to feel good again....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Margie, trust me you wouldn't like the smell at all but it is better tonight.
How is Jake, what about your knee? Thought of you today when I seen a lady walking with her dog. Have a great weekend.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Gail, oh yes Janine's news just made my day, we are all very happy for her.
I am doing great and our weather is lovely to walk in lately, suppose to change tomorrow but we'll see. Have a great weekend my friend......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Cinner, I bought a new heating bag today, this one has a gel inside not the husk. The smell is better tonight but it is still going to take a while. Hope you are doing well....have a great weekend.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Joan, I bought a new pillow today, this one has gel in it. I love the heat on my lower back. The smell is getting better thank heaven.
I do believe in prayer Joan, I have seen it work miracles.
Have a great weekend....:-) Hugs
