OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

I have a time tracking my diet and my activities - but have learned that I do so much better when i take the time to. The two things i have the most struggle with are drinking enough water and getting to the club where i have a membership. And that i pay for each month!! I am continually resolving to do better and do for a while and then just get distracted by other things.

Not going to set any goals for the rest of this month - am just going to post what i do each day and see where i end up.

We had a bit of snow the first of the winter, but have been having just rain with a few days of bitter cold. But, God is still on His Throne and is still in control.

Hi Barb, it's been a while since l popped by, hope you're well.
l've had a sinus infection which made my head feel all fuzzy but l'm almost better now.

The weather has been so cold so l haven't done much walking this week as it made my sinuses hurt, today it's predicted to snow but it's actually very nice at the moment, sunny but accompanied by a blustery cold wind.
l did get out yesterday with DH, we just went into the harbour area of town...lucky we did really as it absolutely poured down just after we got there, it was torrential and lasted all day and most of last night.

Love your new background...lol...
Have a good day emoticon

Good morning Barb, seems a while since l popped by, l do hope you're well.
Everyone is at this end for a change! emoticon

Our weather has been, and still is, atrocious for days now. lt's been so slippery with ice that l haven't ventured out very much. Today is a little better in that it's turned to rain, a lot better if, of course, it doesn't freeze tonight. The temperature is just 1 degree so things are slowly starting to improve though the weathermen have forecast more snow!
The wind has constantly been strong and very cold from the north but today it seems to have eased just a little.
There was an almighty bang, sounded like an explosion, in the middle of the night which woke half the population up. lt was quite scary not knowing what it was. Turns out it was a weather phenomenom called thundersnow which we'd never heard of and certainly wouldn't like to hear again!
l 'googled' it and it's quite rare!

Hope you have a wonderful day, are you meeting Elaine? l know how much you enjoy that emoticon

Thank you for the comment. Not to worry, I'm on the mend. I actually worked out for 1.5 hours today.
