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

Sunday, June 26, 2011      4 comments

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

Monday, June 20, 2011      4 comments

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

Feeling down

Thursday, June 02, 2011      2 comments

I've had some bad news from blood work - may or may not be serious and am trying to be upbeat and wait for further test results before going in to a total panic. Some moments are better than others. Obviously, we are not leaving for the ... Read more

No time for the Spark - how can that be??????????

Friday, May 13, 2011      3 comments

This has been a very busy week and one of the things that got sorely neglected was Spark people. I thought about it a couple of times but barely had time to log in. I like being busy and I like being involved with other people and all the thin... Read more

Privacy or Not

Thursday, April 21, 2011      4 comments

I just changed my spark page to private after reading a blog of a friend who realized our blogs were going over the internet. I naively thought they all stayed just on the spark! I typed my name in google and all my blogs came up. I don't use... Read more

Refrigerator Update

Thursday, April 21, 2011      2 comments

Thank you all for your suggestions on our "fridge odor". We have tried them all and there is still a smell. We now think the odors are in the inulation of the fridge and there does not seem to be anything we can do to get it out. Evidently a ... Read more
