Fri, 4 Jul 2014 15:15:32 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5731634 Stayed in bed this morning as it was that cold I don't normally do that but once in awhile won't hurt then went for my walk as it started to warm up, once the sun came out this morning the weather was great. Fri, 4 Jul 2014 00:22:31 EST Another Cold Morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5730663 At the moment because it is so cold I am going for my walk a bit later.

Tue, 1 Jul 2014 15:23:56 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5729308 This morning I went with hubby to see a diettion and she explained a lot to him that he did not know before but she also told him that he is close to having to take insulin.

Sun, 29 Jun 2014 18:21:36 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5728517 Boy what a cold morning it has rained non stop since I got out of bed this morning have had to do most of my exercises inside now it is really cold so am sitting under my electric cuddle blanket trying to warm up. Sun, 29 Jun 2014 18:21:32 EST Home Now http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5727989 Had a great time on the farm DIL had the 2 younger dogs shaved and we hardly recognised them as they have always been a long haired type of dog so know wonder they looked different. The 2 older dogs which are chocolate Labradors both seem to have arthritis in there hind legs which is such a shame as they are really cute and they love racing around when they go down to feed the calves and the pigs. Sat, 28 Jun 2014 21:58:43 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5727327 We are down on the farm as I said it is not far from home but it is just a nice break the weather is not the best as last night it poured with rain and blew a gale. At the moment the sun is shinning but it is still blowing a gale. Fri, 27 Jun 2014 20:01:05 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5726466 After hubby gets home from work we are going down to the farm to spend the weekend with our son and DIL it is my son's birthday today so it will be nice to spend the rest of the day with him. Thu, 26 Jun 2014 15:06:35 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5725812 Having my stitches out next week on Wednesday and hubby is going to see a dietition on Tuesday morning he said he was feeling a bit better but I am not sure how he feels with having this patch on that is suppose to help his blood pressure. Wed, 25 Jun 2014 17:55:32 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5725046 Hubby went to work today he was feeling a bit better I think it was a shock for him to find out that the results of his blood test was not good, he knows now that he will have to alter some of his things. Tue, 24 Jun 2014 16:54:21 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5724361 My leg is still sore, hubby had a really bad night last night he went to the Dr and his blood pressure was 190/ 80 and blood sugar levels were 77 which was not good news, I put a patch which is suppose to help his blood pressure and straight away he blamed that even though he has had the same problem at night before I told him to give the patch a chance. Mon, 23 Jun 2014 18:58:14 EST Very Cold MORNING http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5723539 Will go for my walk a bit later as the cold morning is making my leg ache this morning other than that the swelling has not yet gone down but will keep doing my exercises as it is good for my knee.
