Why is it raining? Why is it snowing?

What's going on with the weather? It seems to be doing what it wants. Can't plan a day without checking weather report. Of course it's Oregon and you figure it should rain at any time but this is getting pretty bad. I'm going to try to do a walk today but if it starts to pour I'll have to stop. You know the old saying "...................good intentions"

Sooooo Busy

Thursday, May 09, 2013

The last couple weeks have been so busy. My mother who is 86 yrs needed to come up here to live. When my sister passed away last year my niece took mom into her home. She got to where she couldn't take care of her any longer. I finally got my mom a small apt. in an assisted living place. She loves it and it has worked out well. She has her freedom yet all her medication and needs are taken care of.

Started birding again. I did it when I was younger but didn't have time to continue. Love adding birds to my photography hobby. It gets me outside and walking which makes my doctor happy. Had my 3 month check and my A1c is down to 7.1. Great accomplishment for me. Not long ago it was over 12. Lost 12 lbs. in the last 3 months so doctor was supper happy about that. Have a lot to do today. Try to keep up better in the future.

    You are certainly a fantastic problem solver as far as finding what works for your mother. I am so glad it worked out for your family.

Congratulations on the weigh loss and better A1C!

I'm a birder too. I love it!

    Great job on your A1c. Definite improvement. Glad your mom is settled, it is tough with aging parents. Mine are still in their house and my Dad is 89 now. Not sure how much longer before they need to go to a condo or a one level home.

    I can relate to how busy you have been. Since I am the 84 year old mother who is making a living change. Building a new house next to my daughter's home in Florida, I will be moving from Las Vegas when the house is completed. I guess change is part of life, but I sometimes wish I could just vegetate for a while!

Repair Men

Monday, March 25, 2013

I got them coming out of the walls. Our heater broke and the house has been cold for two days. Got that fixed this morning. The plumber is here putting in a new water heater and then the guy will be here to fix the garage door opener. When it rains it pours. I'm just glad I got it all done on one day.

Everyone have a good week. emoticon

Been A While

Saturday, March 23, 2013

I'm still alive. It's been a while since I have had time to write anything. I make sure I check in every day with my spin for points and check to see what's going on. I've made a couple more trips to the zoo since I last posted. Great (safe) place to walk. Doing physical therapy now so I'm trying to walk a little more every week. I haven't taken baby Daphne to the zoo yet. It's been really cold and she would be out too long. I take her when I do my little 10 min walks on my street. She's getting big now. Two months old now. Time sure goes fast.

    This is the first time we've "met" - found your blog via LAC936 - but your page made me want to respond.

Your picture of baby Daphne is adorable, and I went to your page to see your pic of Miss Sadie - who also looks like an absolute sweetheart. Are the lion pictures examples of your own photography - they're stunning.

Wishing you every success with the physical therapy, and your recovery. emoticon

Zoo Day

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Haven't been here in a little while. Been really busy. Had to start going to Physical Therapy. Pain in my back was getting too bad. It seems to have helped some.

Went to the zoo today to get a little walking in. I take my little walker with the seat in it. I walk a while then sit and rest. I actually feel pretty good. Of course I took Pictures. I will share a couple.
