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.

Good morning Barb,
So sorry to hear about your sister, I'm thinking of you all emoticon

I love your background page, so cheerful, and your new profile picture too, you're looking good and Ruby looks a wonderful walking companion.

I'm still having problems with my internet connection, might have to change suppliers as the router just won't connect...always something!!

Have a good day emoticon

Hi Barb, hope you're well, I've had router trouble and been offline for over a week, sure have missed it!
Seems to be working fine now even though the router is unplugged from the computer...don't understand that but will make on whilst l can!

Loads of emails etc to catch up on but logged into Spark first, gotta get my priorities right...lol...
Have a wonderful day, will talk more soon x

Barb, Thanks for stopping by and for your comment on the photo of my crocheted doily. Yes, I crocheted it, I've been crocheting for 45 years. The doily is about 26 inches across and took me forever to do. I hope to enter it in the county fair next summer. I noticed on your page that you meet with other knitters several times a week, that sounds like a lot of fun. I'm part of a knitting/crocheting group, but it's just monthly. Thanks again for stopping by. I'm adding you as a friend, hope you don't mind! Karen

Good morning Barb, hope you're fit and well.

How's the counselling going, hope the situation is resolved or at least a lot better.
I'm thinking of you emoticon

The little indian summer didn't arrive and we seem to be in the throes of the 'seasons of mist and mellow fruitfulness' especially today where l can't even see the bottom of the garden!
And it's so chilly! Brrr!

My a arm's still pretty painful, not sure if the colder weather makes it ache more and l'm on medication for a sinus infection which has caused a lot of pain under my right eye...seems to be on the mend at last, it doesn't actually hurt to breathe in any more!
Apart from that feeling chipper emoticon
