I am enjoying cooler weather here in Mankato, Minnesota! A high about 75 degrees is very nice in August. Some of the plants are changing colors already even! I am eating a bit more than I had planned for today, but that is the way it goes som... Read more

The nurse I talked to at the orthopedic clinic told me to keep it elevated use ice and it will get better! I think that it will still take time but I do elevate, ice and use an ace bandage. I want to get back to work but not if my wrist is no... Read more
Still not working!

I wish my wrist would heal faster. It stays swollen even with ice on it. I think the doctor was wrong about my going back to work this week as that one day has made things much worse. I need to find some way to help this wrist as what I am do... Read more

Soft food!
Thursday, August 11, 2016      2 comments

I am finding it hard to only eat soft foods! I just finished some mashed rutabagas, they are not as nice as mashed potatoes but lower in calories. I need to eat more soup with this limit on the kinds of things I can eat.... Read more

Being home alone and hot I decided to see a movie tonight! I will have dinner after that. It is about three quarters of a mile to the movie theater so good exercise included. I hope everyone is having a nice afternoon/evening! The movie was... Read more
Warm today!

It was warmer than I like but not as hot as some days have been! I walked to a mall and sat in the AC for about an hour, it was lovely. I prefer cool for reading even if a walk is involved! Sometimes sitting in front of a fan is better than a... Read more
Locally grown vegetables.

This town has a place where each week in summer you can get a share, a half share or a quarter share of fresh vegetables and fruits. We pay extra to get local eggs, they are brown and taste better than the ones from the store. If only we eat t... Read more

Hot and sticky!
Tuesday, August 02, 2016      2 comments

It would seem odd having lived in the Deep South that I find Minnesota Summers too hot for me! In the Deep South everyone has AC and here it is much less common. We do have fans so it could be worse. Exercise in this weather is hard to consid... Read more

Today I took a walk and went to Walgreens and found candy on sale, so I bought a lot of them. I still have fruit in the frig. I think I will have lots of candy tomorrow. Today I am staying at 502 or 507 if I need tums before bed.... Read more
Eating when not hungry!
Wednesday, July 27, 2016      3 comments

I try not to do this but sometimes it does happen! Drinking green tea kills my hunger even on days I am not trying to eat lightly. I am looking forward to more calories tomorrow, but my Kashi Go Lean for breakfast will be a good start.... Read more
Hot nights in Minnesota!
Thursday, July 21, 2016      4 comments

I have lived in the Deep South so heat should not be such a problem, the thing is that in the Deep South everyone has AC! Here it is not so common and as we are not rich we do not have any. Today the heat index was at 117 degrees F. Hotter th... Read more
Living with family can be hard!

My niece moved back home today and has stuff piled all over the house. If I could get to my room or the bathroom without going through an obstacle course I would find this less trouble! My sister does not see the problem so it will have to be ... Read more
Eating with bad teeth!
Monday, July 04, 2016      1 comments

Soft food is what the dentist recommends for me to eat, but that gets way boring for me. I can chew with my molars so that is the way I am doing it. Still the softer the food the easier it is to eat.... Read more
