JULY 2015

I decided that this is my year - well, am getting off to a slow start - but have kept going.

Am not following any challenges right now. Am just trying to keep cool in our very warm weather - in the 3 digits most days. And that has resulted in more water retention - so the doctor has upped my water pills and the potassium. Am concentrating on getting more potassium in my diet.

I decided that this is my year - well, am getting off to a slow start - but have kept going.

Am getting to the club at least 3 to 4 times a week - and am starring to use the elliptical some - it is hard for me but am determined to do at least 3 to 5 minutes on it.

And, of course, am truly enjoying my knitting. Started a new cowl pattern in a light purple - a fun knit.

Looks like we are going to have a dry summer - not much snow in the mountains. But, God is still on His Throne and is still in control.

Good morning Barb, hope you're well.
For once l did get a good night's sleep, the first in a long time as l've been having problems. l nod off for an hour then wake up for about five...lol...not good!

l had my last hospital visit yesterday...or so l thought...l actually have to return, yet again, in two weeks!!
My eye is almost back to normal, just odd flashes when l look to the right and there are a few floaters which weren't there before but l can focus now and it's not blurred so l feel much happier in myself. l only lost the sight in one eye which was bad enough, it must be really awful to blind all the time.

The lethargy, hot flushes, coldness, tingling and sleeplessness is a viral infection in my kidney, medication is sorting it but l still have blood in my urine hence the next visit in two weeks.
l feel a lot better and am beginning to get out and about again but l know just what you mean by 'pooped'...lol...l'm like that now and l've only just got up!!.

Your daughter has done very well, it's hard to do it on your own, l take my hat of to her. l'll be nice for you to visit and go on her machines.

l've stuck a load of washing in the machine and David has put the line out for me so all l have to do is peg is out, there's a nice breeze blowing and intermittent sunshine so it should dry.

Take care and have a good week emoticon

Hi Barb, just stopping by to see how you're doing. I'll be cooking allot for the next 5 months at least every night a dinner since husband is working 3rd shift and will eat before he leaves, and probably a breakfast each morning or left overs from the night before. yesterday was my first day on his new shift.

It's warm here we didn't have much of a winter here, but am waiting for it to het into the 90's because that is when I get into our pool, and I hope to get some exercise done that way....easy on the joints !!

Have a good Monday. emoticon this is how my Pigmy palm is looking.

Good morning Barb, hope all is well with you and yours.
We all seem to be ok at this end.

The weather is still playing silly beggars, sometimes sunny but always with a cold wind and we even had hailstones yesterday. We were lucky, some places were covered in snow which settled and then froze last night!

The garden has finally woken up and the cherry blossom is gorgeous at the moment though it doesn't look as though it's going to stay on the trees for long with the strong winds. The grass is covered in petals, it looks like pink snow!

lt's a long Bank Holiday week-end over here, friday through Monday, so we're hoping to get in a bit of walking, perhaps in the forestry.
There's also the Yorkshire Cycle Race in our area so we might get to see a bit of that though everywhere will be packed with people, l actually prefer to watch it on the telly, you see more but of course you don't get the atmosphere then.

Hope you have a wonderful week-end too emoticon
