Back to the heat

Thursday, June 30, 2011      3 comments

We are back in Florida and the humidity is incredible. Although we had bouts of rain and thunderstorms in the mountain when they clear the weather is dry and sunny. I got out of the car in Florida and my glasses immediately steamed up! Th... Read more

Today is the day we prepare to head back to Florida and leave our little cabin for about 2 weeks. The grand was much better yesterday but then she woke in the middle of the night and now looks like tonsils are swollen and white spots so w... Read more

Rainy days in the mountains

Tuesday, June 28, 2011      2 comments

We have changing thunderstorms most every day here in north GA. This morning I was on the deck early and the sun was out. Within a few minutes the clouds rolled in and it was black as could be and windy. Within another few minutes the sun was... Read more

The grand is sick

Monday, June 27, 2011      3 comments

Our granddaughter woke up with a sore throat - this is not supposed to happen when you are visiting Grammie and Gramps. We've spend the day entertaining her and we are both hoarse from reading one book after another. Gramps is down there doing... Read more

Sleeping in

The grand is still sleeping this morning. I have read on the deck, finished 30 minutes on the treadmill and 30 minutes on the bike, did a little strength training. I'm finishing up the spark and will see what other quiet activities I can come ... Read more

River walk

Saturday, June 25, 2011      5 comments

This morning I did 30 minutes on the bike on the deck - a beautiful 65 degrees here in the mountains. After making pancakes for the grand and Gramps (but not eating them - I had cheerios with blueberries -yum!) I went down to the river walk an... Read more

Disappointing morning............

Friday, June 24, 2011      2 comments

We took the granddaughter to a farm of miniature animals and it promised an old west town with all the shops, banks, jail and café, etc. We were prepared for a good day's walk around the farm and town and maybe a little lunch. It was very disap... Read more

Eating enough

Thursday, June 23, 2011      4 comments

OK, everyone please don't even think I don't eat enough. I am confident that I will never come to that point. I eat 3 meals and at least 2 snacks sometimes 3 everyday. I will have to do portion control for the rest of my life but that is OK. ... Read more

No longer hungry

Wednesday, June 22, 2011      5 comments

Since re-committing myself to myself and getting back on track I find that I am no longer hungry all the time like I was for the first week or 10 ten days. I've told my granddaughter that while she is here, there are things I must do to stay he... Read more

To hot dog or not????

Tuesday, June 21, 2011      4 comments

The grand is here and has requested hot dogs on the grill for supper. I'm not sure I'm ready to eat one of those so am thinking I may have some left over chicken tonight. We'll see how they look when the come off the grill. I will see how bad... Read more

Needed a break

So far today I have completed 20 minutes on the tread mill, 30 minutes biking on the back deck, semi-reorganized and cleaned the kitchen and living room. Also, had to put the back deck back together after grilling last night so I thought I was ... Read more

Good finds

Saturday, June 18, 2011      5 comments

My anemic body is not allowing me to climb the mountain at this time. At a yard sale this morning I found a treadmill in really good shape and a stationary bike so I bought both of them for $45.00 - what a deal. They are in the basement waitin... Read more

We finally made it to our little cabin in the mountains and are so happy to be here. We have lots and lots of yard work to do! The tornado that hit the area in April caused severe damage to some. We were lucky and have some minor roof damage.... Read more

Serious effort needed

Wednesday, June 15, 2011      4 comments

I have just learned that I am in a pre-diabetic stage, have chronic iron deficiency and an severely anemic. I won't go in to all the gory details of what preceded this but my wishy washy attitude to dieting over the past year is over. Al... Read more
