I have just been visited an old friend who lives in a retirement complex. Interesting to sample life there, so much going on for residents. Too much for me at this time, it was perhaps too soon to go away, but the getting in my home was being renewed so I had to go somewhere, I enjoyed chatting with my friend but was glad to return to my own home.

I've just returned from a birthday party for 3 y/o Evan. He has been brought up to be such a little gentleman with his thank yous, etc. His 2 y/o cousin, Tegan did not understand the occasion and screamed when he was not given a gift too. Evan graciously allowed Tegan to assist in tearing off the wrappings which resulted in a happy day.

Yesterday was time to check my BP with the nurse, a talk by one of our pastors about his 20 years as a missionary in Spain and an evening meal with 6 other female residents. Gave me an opportunity to have liver for a change plus the company.

Tomorrow is church at 10, a memorial service for several residents who passed on in the past couple of months in the afternoon. And the super bowl game which I expect to view by myself. They have a get-together for those who want to, but I'd rather get comfortable in my own home. We have family in Denver, so when I phone next week I'll have to listen to how the game went and might as well view it favoring Denver.

Pat, you certainly don't stay sitting very long...always seem to be moving no matter what your health issues may be. I'm proud of you!

Sorry Marsha is not feeling well but pray you feel better soon!

Hope you are finding February a happier month, dear Ree!

Glad Roberta is getting out and enjoying the fog! Now thst is appreciating the elements !!
Loved your squirrel story, Roberta, pretty smart!

News from here- DD took DH and me to tour a "being built " historical mansion in our neighborhood. It will replace the old empty 1800's mansion that was mysteriousy burned down a couple years ago. A business leader in town is replicating ( except for with modern kitchen and baths and fireplaces) the original structure. Also the 5 fireplaces on first floor -will be gas now instead of wood burners.
Didn't try to tour second floor. Too many steps for me and no guard rails yet:) Fireplaces on 2nd floor as well. It will be fun to see the finished structure. Oh and originally the main kitchen was in a building out back where i am sure the "help" slaved away. Got a few steps in today that way:)

A chuckle for today:

My DD noticed that her dog's stuffed squeaky toys were being moved from the patio to the far corner of the backyard. One was torn up and the stuffing was exposed. As she looked and pondered the why's, she saw a squirrel stuff its cheeks with the stuffing and head for a tree--it was padding its pad! emoticon

Hello just popping in to say hi to my dear girls...

Ree sorry about your loss and may God give you the strength to deal with it.

Pat, hope the sore knees feel better, I too am playing a wrestling match with my arthritis in my right knee and the severe winter this year is weighing the balance heavily in Mr. Arthritis' favor.

Roberta what an inspiration I can manage more than 6000 steps a day...at best have done 8000

Marsha hope you feel better soon...

Catch up with all of you soon again

Much Love
Sairah

Thinking of Ree and sending our love!

I am Planning ahead to resume my daily exercise routine on Monday after all house guests helpers have left. I tried getting up early to workout but discovered it disturbed their sleep.
They are doing all the cooking but my contribution is doing up the dishes all three meals.
Told them i know where they go:)

Today we took our little ShihTzu to be groomed. She looks wonderful now and even smells like a rose:)

Too bad about your knee, Pat. Exercise feels so good while you are doing it, but sore muscles or joints can complain later. I've been doing some leg isometrics along with my other leg exercises in my armchair. I straighten my legs horizontally, tighten them, and hold as long as I can. My legs are responding quickly--amazing. Last Thursday, I took my DD for a medical procedure and sat most of the day. Friday, it was like I had never done any exercises and had to start over again. Some of the other exercises I do, I hold that position as long as possible, and that works better than doing 10 repetitions fast.

You are doing very well post surgery, so you are doing something right. Continue to take good care of yourself. Love, Roberta

Thinking of Ree, and glad she has support!
And Marsha- lending her kind support as well!

Still trying to keep up with Roberta:)
But Paying for it with very sore left knee. !

Today DH made the bed as usual while i set out breakfast.
I put my end table in order, again-cleared dishes after meals and did dishes,and got guest sheets washed. (Will let cleaning lady make that bed. )
Another DD is here getting the healthy meals . .

I am still walking with security of a walker. Feeling stronger every day.

Steps for yesterday: 10,273.
Sleep: 10:54 hr w/ 96% Efficiency (Made up for the night before, slept like a teenager! )

Tried some of the new raw honey in the evening. Had the flavor of wild greens, and was not sweet like the clover honey I have been buying. It is more solid than liquid--will be better used in the blender. Perfect for hot tea or coffee. Although it was different, it was tasty.

Roberta, so sorry your sleep was disturbed. So hard sometimes to get back to sleep. I would say a nap is in the agenda for today. I usually lay on couch around 3 and sleep for about an hour.

Good morning to all, praying for those in the Winter Weather and a lot of snow. Stay warm and well, and check in if you can and let us know how everyone is doing.

Nan, that is a hard time. My son and grandchildren were here when the pastor and elder came. I let them to decide on all except the songs and passages from the Bible. You are in my prayers. I can't believe that DH will be gone 4 years May st. We will send up a balloon May 1st like we always do. We each write something on it and release it and Geo Jr videos it. Kinda a closure for another year.

The funeral is planned , the minister guided me through it and approved my choice of music and hymns. I want it to be a celebration of life so chose music and hymns Maurice liked. No have to look up length if hymns number if verses etc and make sure it all flows well, then get the order of service ready for printing, a grandson want to do it. Ree

13,014 for yesterday and only 5:29 hrs of sleep. My bad--did not take my Osteo Genesis along with milk and honey. Diet not the best, and I don't weigh every day. There is always tomorrow to start over and do better. Must go to the store today.

Thank you all for support and condolences. It's quite a time from Maurices death on 11th to funeral on 28th , I feel in limbo. Today the minister is coming here to discuss the music and order of the service, I dread it yet it is the last thing I can do for him,
Old friends are contacting me but mostly they can't make the trip to be here, I totally understand that.
I try to be positive so will say my son Mike is a great support. He is taking me to do grocery shopping this morning and have a coffee break while my very good home cleaner waves her magic wand on the house,. Ree

Good evening to all. Yes Pat it is always good to see old friends. I have lost so many of mine. Of course have a lot of friends at church, but friends that were friends with Brooks and I are all called home.

Glad you had a good day. Have to see what is on TV tongiht. I get hair done in the morning, and then to Dollar Tree.I have a GC from Christmas so thought I might as well spend it. :)

Have a good evening everyone. Stay warm, it is warmer tonight that last night, then Fri. more rain and another cold spell. I am looking forward to Spring. I could take Spring year round. :) Also looking forward to changing clocks again so it stays light later and Ginger and I can sit on the front porch.

12,431 steps yesterday. I created an isometric exercise to do while I sit watching TV, and noticed yesterday that my legs were stronger and there was a more normal movement to get up out of the arm chair! It was amazing that it happened so quickly. Will get back into my isometrics full time.

Hello on a snowy Sunday . Many thanks for condolences and goodies sent after the death of my husband Maurice. It's not a week yet but feels ages, I lost him a long time ago, he was a shell of the man he was,
But I did all I could for him and he died at home as he would have wanted,
I am now trying to pick up the pieces of my life and look after myself , I am so grateful for support of family and friends , Look after yourselves and loved ones, Ree

Good evening to all, the rains stopped, the sun popped out and warmed up for awhile, they are saying more rain Sunday and another cold spell. I worked on the computer balancing my check book, paid a bill, etc. this afternoon.

The storm (tornado) hit south of us, but no one was hurt, but a lot of damage.

Hope everyone has a great evening, just came in from pruning some plants as Geo. Jr. will be here in the morning to rake leaves and put out for the yard waste PU next Wed.

Going to see what is on TV, I know Shark Tank is on so I will be watching that.

OK!! re. following weather patterns I'll have to admit I've never followed them from Idaho! A storm is coming up the east coast today. But expected to be only a little rain by the time it reaches here.

Roberta, Wow! Such energy even on a day of bad wintry weather! I forget, what state do you live in? Your information will make me aware of storms headed toward me in PA. So far no more than a dusting of snow here. I'm not complaining!! It was 20 years ago that we had 2 and a half feet of snow in one storm and my DH announced that I should start preparing to move from our home to an apartment ASAP. Ice storms often hit the middle of January with loss of electricity and trees down. I now live a little north of that home but in a personal care home.

WOW! The Fitbit racked up 13,620 steps yesterday! I have not done that in ages! Due to the icy weather, however, I did not venture outdoors for my walk. More rain/snow came in last night. I do need to get to the store, so maybe the temps will warm enough to make driving possible.

Wow! You are the amazing woman, Roberta! It will take me some time to catch up with you! But I will do my best:)! I did the br. dishes as both visiting daughters are on computers doing their day jobs. At the moment.
Yesterday DD and husband did arrive and DSIL has already Fixed our dishwasher that the top "wand" did not seem to be working! I think it is fixed .now. At the moment he is looking for cobwebs in ceiling corners, cleaning built up dust from back of refrigerator ( it should run more smoothly). I had made a list of possible chores. . And told him that between chores he should hike our back roads as both he and DD are avid hikers. They will be here for 2 1/2 weeks so i am sure he will accomplish most of them:)
The weather promises to be in the 60's while they are here. Both daughters have snow back home.
Hope all is going smoothly at your house as well.
Hugs, Pat

My outdoor walk lasted only 10 minutes yesterday as when that icy wind hit my face, my lips starting going numb! I did get in 9,264 steps, however, just keeping active yesterday. AND I slept better and longer last night! 9:29 hrs! Efficiency: 94%.

The new Fitbit coming out looks amazing, but pricey. I will stick with my Fitbit One. The Biggest Loser show is using Fitbits now.

More cold weather warnings in this morning. I will wait until this afternoon to get in my outside walk.
Here's to an enjoyable day to all of us. emoticon Roberta

Pat, you certainly did bounce back, big time! And more loving family coming in to help out. Are you still getting in your 10,000 steps at 5 in the morning? Amazing woman, you!

I plan to start exercising tomorrow. Starting first walking outside for 30 minutes a day. Then strength/weight training 3 X week at the gym. And last, going for 10,000 steps a day. That is enough to start with. I can re-design my workout when appropriate.

I finished up the paperwork on the damaged items today and sent off to the moving company. They should receive it by Thursday. That is a relief and a feeling of freedom to start taking care of myself.

Take care. Hugs, Roberta

Good afternoon, my granddaughter, great grandson's wife, and my Great, Great Grandson just left. We had a great visit. He is adoreable, and smiles all the time. He is 7 weeks old.


Hope everyone has a good afternoon, damp here. It rained this morning, and supposed to get cooler.

Dear Friends, I watched a video (at 1:00 this morning) of Michael Pollan (food journalist) on our PBS station, "In Defense of Food." It made me angry at science and the big food agra businesses! (Also, made it easier to stay away from my homemade bread.) But I will remember what he said and that will make me more determined to find unadulterated natural foods and stay away from most (but not all) processed foods (like organic pasteurized milk. A childhood friend became very ill by drinking raw milk.) It will strengthen my resolve to stick with Paleo by choosing grass-fed, pasture-raised organic foods.

We can start a quiet rebellion/revolution by not buying adulterated foods. Do read labels on packaged items. Don't be fooled by advertising. GO PALEO! emoticon YEAAAAY !!!

Carpe Diem

Lovely photos I must try to find out how to add some, ? I am technology challenged,

Thank you for good wishes and goodies sent to me, it's been a long drawn out Christmas and New year. I did not feel like celebrating , it is probably Mauruce"s last one. He is not in pain he is generally happy. Which is a bonus.
There is to be an end of life discussion and plan set up with family, medical people and who ever else is needed. .i have the final say . It's not a way of ending or extending life just making it easier, painless and dignified where possible. I am still taking it in.

Been another busy day. My Grandson and Great Grandson came today for a visit. Had a nice long visit.


Andrew playing with his Hess Truck, my late husband started getting him one when he was born and I have continued. Hess is no longer. So no more Hess Trucks I guess for Christmas.



Nick my Grandson, Andrew Great Grandson, and myself.
We had a fun afternoon.

Going to bed early, as I still have the cough, and need some rest.

Hugs and prayers to all.

My DD treated me to a New Year's luncheon yesterday. Afterward she hung the large outdoor thermometer on the front porch! She is such a blessing. It was 2 deg this morning at 6:00! We are due to have some relief by next week--two days above freezing. I lived 50 years in a warmer, wetter climate before moving here in May and have never experienced such cold. BUT I am sorta becoming able to function and will soon be going about my business like everyone else.

Have a great day. Love, Roberta

I drove on ice yesterday with the temperature well below freezing! Of course, the main streets were cleared and the packed snow and ice was only in residential areas. The tires kept a grip and I felt safe.

The day spent with my DD was special as we talked about things we had not discussed ever. Her therapy dog (they were a therapy dog team at one time) is coming to the end of his days and we made it special--I even brought a steak for him. He is the only dog I know that is always invited to parties along with my DD. He is well loved in the neighborhood and is given Christmas gifts, too.

This was the only stress-free Christmas I can remember--I brought the fixin's and my DD did the cooking--steak, baked potato, salad. It is one I will remember with love and happiness.

Hugs, Roberta

Yesterday, my DD picked me up to go to the Mall. First lunch, then to Nordstrom Rack and then Macy's and one other store looking for a water repellant hooded raincoat without luck. (I will have to do with my current non-hooded coat, which is much better, except I have to use a plastic bonnet over a warm cap or earmuffs. That will look incredibly funny.) Then we dropped by Natural Grocers near the Mall--paleo and organic all the way--much easier to access and easier to find what I needed. Whole Foods is good, but difficult to drive to and from downtown. At the check stand, DD picked up two Paleo Magazines and showed them to me. They were added to the cart. It is a good thing that I was too exhausted to look at the prices or I would not have taken the Holiday Cookbook--$19.95! BUT am happy to have it as the recipes look delicious and do-able. The monthly magazine has some neat articles--one on "bone broth." Must try that if I can find the animal parts I have never used before.

The weather forecast for Christmas Day has the high temperature for the day at 30 deg and 18 the night before with snow and ice on the ground. It might be too risky for me to drive to her house, so I gave her all the foods for our dinner "just in case." (aka Plan B) I was a Girl Scout in my younger days and our motto was ALWAYS PREPARED! I do that to this day without even thinking about it.

That was my day yesterday. More errands today with a dusting of snow on the ground this morning, but temps are well above freezing--no problem. Walmart is ten minutes down the road.

Here's to a great day to all of us. Hugs, Roberta

2014 and 2015 had both ups and downs. The down parts were back surgery, a right hip replacement. I also had major water damage in my condo and was in a hotel from April 19th until June 2nd. This did however result in all new carpeting, walls repainted and a new new bed.
The up part if that it is all behind me and I am doing well. I had and have good surgeons, loving and caring family and friends, and prayers. I truly believe that with them and believing that God was not going to give me more than I could handle, I would be just fine.

I will probably not be posting a lot as I am trying to not send too much time on the computer these days.

Wanted to sending greeting to some old friends. Love and God bless you and yours.

Hi there-great that you have your Christmas shopping all done, Marsha. Same here. Now even wrapped! Now the Christmas cards have been arriving and I still have to start!

Wonderful news from Ree that her Maurice is well enough to come home. He will still have to take iteasy for a while but be much happier at home.

Yay!, Roberta! So happy that you finally got your auto equipment installed!
Now I suggest making good friends with the neighbor dog owners. Maybe a plate of Christmas cookies and a bag of doggie treats might do the trick!:)

Hugs, Pat

Yaaaay! The dash cam and backup cam are working perfectly now! No relay or wires or torn up carpeting! I sent the car agency techs an email from Garmin how to get the cameras in sync, they followed instructions, and all is well. Great relief! emoticon

Now, if I could just make friends with the neighbor's dog, that would be good. He stares at me like I am a suspect! That stare is creepy! One day his leash may break! My DD gave me this advice: Don't look, don't talk, and don't touch him! That is good advice as my sweet talking did nothing to get a tail wag. emoticon

Ree glad to hear DH is well enough to come home. Please get s much rest as you can. Get out of the house when possible. Big hugs coming your way. My hardest and most streesful was being a caretaker. Please watch your back if you have to move him. I hurt mine big time. You are in my prayers.

Pat, just finished up today after I got hair done. I went the easy route I am giving GC's. Tired and have to decide what I am going to have for supper. Had late lunch so might have cereal.
Hope everyone has a great evening.

Wonderful news from Ree- and that they have it under control now! Whew! That was a scare.
Last early spring both DH and I had pneumonia at the sametime. So great that the meds works so well!

Glad to hear from Roberta again. Was starting to worry about you. Hope the roads get good enough for you to get your car backup lights installed properly soon!

Marsha is out and about as usual. Did you say you are all through Christmas shopping?

I just today wrapped all our gifts .only had to actually wrap a couple as I Used those handy Christmas gift bags for most

Homebound today due to icy streets! Tomorrow looks OK and will take my car back to the agency to have a relay and wiring installed from backup camera to dash cam. All supposed to work "seamlessly" when gear is in reverse. It will be a good thing to stay safe here.

I'm back to drinking green tea again instead of coffee. It was upsetting my digestive track. emoticon Beans are no-nos on paleo, could that have caused the problem??? Hmmmm.

Carpe Diem

BE where you ARE.

Good for you, Ree!
Sounds like things are falling into place nicely for you inspite of your missgivings about moving. Aren't families wonderful to help out when we need them! And even when we think we will do just fine? . Here too. Glad your DH is happy most of the time. That alone is a blessing!

We have been in our Texas home now since end of October. Here too, our local DD, is here
daily , mornings to put DH support hose on him before leaving for work, then again at noon bringing us lunch from her cafeteria, and eating with us, then back to work- and back again always before bedtime to remove support hose:) she also keeps our med boxes filled, picks up our groceries and gets us to all appointments! Same as DD back home . She doesn't miss a beat!

I am makng Dr Fuhrmans Raisin Slaw for dinner. Quite a bit of chopping and .blending going on. Will keep ya'll posted:)
Pat
We had the Raisin Slaw for dinner. I thought it was too sweet- (might be the optional addition of beets,) so i added some balsamic vinegar to compensate. Worked.
