Gout pain is still with me and I don't like the prednisone. Bah humbug!

Other than that, all is well.

I hope everyone has a marvelous day!

On vacation. Christmas pudding day today. Finished after 6. Tummy a little off. Left knee is hurting me and since right one is the bad one..... Still scanning pix for gifts. I need a kid to take me to get a last gift for dh. Tomorrow we do Hanukhah late as Mon was dh's birthday. He and youngest went shopping today so I had my own space for an hour or so, YEAH

Linda, don't get discouraged..you will walk again, that's for sure. Just takes time. Thursday I was having a bout with my sore foot but it comes and goes now. Used to be non stop 24/7 pain. Today it hurt a little when I started my walk but as I got into walking it went away! Just seems to take me longer now that I am older for things to heal.

Food is always a nice gift and well appreciated; or coffee if they drink it.

I cannot wait until I can walk again, for longer than 15 minutes. I am certain the weight will come off! I gained 2 lb. but lost it again. So far, no weight gain with the prednisone, thankfully. I really don't like it, though!

Today will be an at home day. Monday I will finish Christmas shopping, not much left, just dh's parents. What do you get for people in their 80s who neither want or need anything (except health!)?

I got another good white elephant gift, those led candles, a set of three. I like it! So that is two. the other was a travel toiletries bag set. Score this year. I usually get rooked. Poor dh got rooked yesterday, he got a bag of stuffed animals, one of them plays "wild thing" and wiggles its ears.

Happy Friday!
Foot pain almost gone again. Tomorrow I will do some sort of exercise. Didn't do anything today. Norma and I bought and ate some SEE'S candy. Aargh! So not good for my diet. Well, tomorrow I hope to hit the gym. The stores and mall is too crazy right now. Don't want to step near it until the holiday is over. I really despise rude crowds. Anyhow, have a good weekend everyone. Be careful with the SEE'S..it's so yummy.

I did not try turmeric, Suze. I did try natural remedies, but to no avail. The first day of steroid use knocked out the pain. I don't know what it will do to my body, however.

Diane, that is nice to be able to get along so well. Someday maybe you will be married again... it can happen. I tell the single women at my church to never say never!

We have to get something for dh parents! What to get for someone in their 80s who doesn't need or want anything?

Well, Norma and I are also related in the faith which is why I refer to her mainly as my sister. We get along great since we have same belief system. No wild parties, no smoking no sin of any kind..haha. Really, we DO get along nicely. She is more easy to live with than me I will admit. I can be stubborn and insist on my own way but she understands me after all these years. Now we are "old and settled" and content might I add with our two cats. I hope to fall in love again one day, having been married twice, but not pushing it. I'm happy the way I am..

Foot pain is back today. I was doing so well with the walking again. Hurt terribly to walk..hate this getting old thing. Perhaps when I lose more weight things will be easier for me.

Anyhow, hope everyone having a good evening....

Yup, I married this one and we celebrated our 10th anniversary this year. And except for his stints "away" aka jail or rehab and my volunteer work we are never away from each other. Amazes me sometimes.
Linda, have you tried turmeric? Hope you are feeling better

Went to rheumatologist and now am taking steroids... for a few days only. He said it was that or stick a needle in my painful toe. I have never taken steroids, so wish me luck! Foot still hurts and I had gained 2 pounds... now probably a couple more!

Tomorrow I am a judge on the lights in our neighborhood. The winners get a gift card to Home Depot.

Suze, and now you are married to him?

I am so happy I was able to walk 10 minutes on the treadmill today.

No room mates. In fact, in my first marriage had my own room. Lived with someone had my own room. Tried with this one but didn't have the space and he said no. LOL

I did fairly well years ago with one roommate in South Texas, until her brother moved in, too. Long ago and far away... I am friends now with both of them on Facebook. Lost touch for a while.

Have a great day everyone!

Diane, it is nice that you have a roommate to get along with. I had several when I was much younger, but it was touchy at times.

Lazy day. We are supposed to get rain again this week so did all the chores over the weekend. With two adult women living here, and two cats, our apt doesn't get that dirty. We both keep it up and split the cooking. It's like having a slumber party all the time!

Sounds nice, Sheryl.

I was watching Dr. Furman on PBS and will incorporate his eating plan after Christmas. His book is too expensive, $60, but I got the main points on his program.

I go to the doctor early Thursday. Hopefully I can start to exercise soon. I really dislike the chair exercises, but I guess I will have to succumb soon. Foot is feeling better but I still can only wear one pair of shoes.

Hi all, Busy day yesterday, we celebrated the Feast of Santa Lucia, the saint our county was named for when the Spanish landed along our coast. We had a meal made from the ingredients that would have been on board the ship and those that would have been found growing here.
No photos yet, but I should be getting the winning recipe and the winners pic very soon.

I had breakfast for lunch, so we are having a large green salad for dinner today.

emoticon Hope everyone is doing well..and at least less pain if not pain free. I really think the cold weather affects pain in the body too. I feel better in the summer it seems. Well, don't want summer back..not for awhile. We had another bout of rain and next week supposed to get more. GOOD! We really need it to manage this drought situation. Even the birds are happy. I saw them bathing in the rain! So cute.

The other day we walked the Thompson Creek Trail again and saw a doe and a buck! And, a jack rabbit! Just love walking there and being in nature. Was supposed to do the trail again today but I was just too lazy to get going this morning. However, I did walk around town for 40-minutes and had some hills.

Sounds great Suze!

We got a Chromecast so we can view youtube and other videos on our TV. Pretty cool.

Not a lot of pain yesterday or this morning! emoticon

Went to a party last night and ate too much. I will not weigh for a couple of days. However, I did avoid the sweets and ate berries instead. Someone brought a huge bowl of all kinds of berries. Delicious! DH had a bad situation at work and could not get off to come to the party, so I had to go without him.

I got a great "white elephant" for a change. A new toiletries travel kit. I needed it because all my toiletries bags are coming apart. The end of April we plan to go to Las Vegas and Utah, so I needed it.

Lunch with agent was lovely, green salad, grilled scallops, black rice. Yum. Made holiday centerpiece at library tonight. The library will convert vhs to DVDs so while I was downstairs non techy DH was upstairs with DVD. Didn't work so we'll go back. It's a video of his gran's 100th birthday. It will go along with the history book we are going to give the little elves

Still no relief of pain in foot. Taking Tylenol. Cramping my style!!!!

I am having a business meeting tonight and going to a party tomorrow night. I have to make goodies for the party. I am making pimento cheese sandwiches (homemade) and a salad. With all the ladies who cook sweets, it may be all I get to eat!

I have started a business selling ASEA. You will probably hear of it eventually. Awesome breakthrough heavily patented product.

Hope everyone is feeling better. It's snowing. Working like crazy. Tomorrow having lunch with my agent. My only holiday event. We go to the same place so I already know I am having a green salad, grilled scallops with black rice, still water. I bought some stuff from J. Peterman on big sale - the at the corner of Greenwich and Europe and the red coat with the leopard print lining. Hopefully the weather will cooperate

I will try that, Diane! I had not thought of it.

Today I went to the Vitamin Shoppe and got some remedies, chewable cherry tablets, something homeopathic that you spray in your mouth and oil of juniper that you use in a compress. I have yet to figure that out, due to the fact I have been on the go all day!

Have a great day everyone!

Linda, I know you must be discouraged..but please..this too shall pass (the pain that is). I never thought my foot would feel good enough to let me do my walking again. After several months it IS doing better. Not 100 % but nontheless, better each day. I trust the gout pain you are having will be better too soon. Did you check it out in the sparkpeople articles on health A-Z? I did that with the plantar fasciitis so that I could see what to do for it. Then I paid the doctor a $20 co-pay to tell me exactly what condition I had (which I learned from spark) AND what to do for it which I also learned from spark. Oh well..LOL.

Feel better soon emoticon

Yep! Diane, I never thought this would happen!

I heard from the doc today and I have high uric acid. I have had this gout since Nov 13. He referred me to a rheumatologist which is set up next week. I read online it is unusual to have gout this long.

Linda..we need new feet! emoticon

Actually, my foot problem is starting to feel alot better. I was able to do a 4-mile walk which I will blog about. Today I did a 45-min walk. Oh, I still have some foot pain but not like before. On a scale of one to ten I would say it's about a three.

Linda, can you take anti inflammatories? The doctor told me to take ALEVE for my foot pain or whatever else works. I was taking it every day too. I think foot pain takes awhile to heel if you pardon the pun.

Our town just has one Christmas parade. It is fun. We are usually in it, but not this year. My dh was too overwhelmed with all he has to do to add a parade into the mix.
We have youth groups, scouts, businesses with floats, fire trucks, etc. It is a lighted parade and everyone throws out candy to the kids. Blue Santa starts the parade and "real" Santa Clause ends it.

Foot still hurts. Hopefully there will be an end in sight.

Christmas parades are fun!

Diane, I am glad your foot is better. Mine still hurts. I can wear only one pair of shoes in my closet! I will be glad to hear from the doctor next week.

Everyone, have a great day!

emoticon did a 4-mile walk today at the trail I love to do! Finally my foot feeling better. It's 2 miles up and 2 miles back. A nice woodsy area to walk and we saw deer today! On the way back after doing 2 miles my foot hurt a little bit. It really helped to walk on the dirt area rather than the concrete.

Way to go, Sheryl!

Suze, I like Red Lobster and that grave thing sounds interesting. I have not heard of it, but I like the feel of it.

Still decorating... not really in the mood. Would love to have all new stuff for Christmas décor, but not possible at this time. We did get a couple of new things last year, so I put them out first! I forgot I purchased a huge lighted wreath last year after Christmas. I made a big bow for it yesterday, looks good! We are not going all out in the decorations this year. Year before last Dh won for best traditional light display in our neighborhood... this year we have only the lighted wreath.

Foot feels better today.

Yeah, it's Friday. I slept a whole hour later. Jammed with work which is good. Linda, since I am changing the way I eat, the smoothies work. I have been doing one a day. They are delicious, filling and curb my sweet tooth - it ain't gone yet but it's disappearing.
Luckily or probably not, I have no social life over the holidays so eating not too much of an issue, wish it were. I blogged about my lack of holiday parties and how my life revolves around tweens, teens and 20 somethings. This week we pick up the tree and our tradition is since Red Lobster is next to tree place, we get take out and come home. Easy to make good choices there. Hope to go out East unless it is raining, Diane :) and buy my chocolates for holiday gifts (oh OK I will slip there a little bit) and "visit" DH"s mom at the cemetery and in this area of the world we put on grave blanket - firs and decorations.

Suze

Sounds good, Sheryl.

I have some things too that will have tempting goodies this week and next. I am going to eat something healthy or drink a smoothie before going to curb my appetite.

Some very busy weekends are coming up, this is when I end up eating things I shouldn't due to lack of time. I will be taking my lunch and snacks where ever I go for the next few weeks. This way I can control what is in my food.

Yes, he said it could be another type of crystal formation besides uric acid crystals.... a different type of arthritis.

Diane, I feel like I am falling apart too, but trying to hold it together. I am putting up Thanksgiving décor today and doing some Christmas decorating, hopefully.

emoticon With the colder weather I found out I had aches in areas I didn't know of! Seems my whole body aches at times. Feel better Linda.

I've got to get "off my duff" and do some exercise. I tell you my cat and I are falling apart! Me, with plantar faciitis and my poor kitty Ebony with his auto-immune that I am trying to get under control. *Sigh*

Dr. took blood, urine and I had an xray of toe. He said might not be gout but a form of arthritis. We will see. Still have not heard results of stress test last week, must be good news there! Otherwise, feeling better! emoticon

agh! I woke up this morning with gout pain... again. Good thing I am going to the doctor today. My cold is better! Not as much coughing. Maybe I have not been drinking enough water. Monday I didn't drink my quota because I slept almost all day and all night.

Thank you, Sheryl and Diane! I don't think I have the flu, just a cold. I have a nasty cough and am staying home. Dh brought me some soup home for lunch, sweet guy.

I have not had a flu shot

Diane, I have never heard of that. My last kitty died of colitis. We gave him meds, he was abut 17 when he had to be put to sleep. I held him while they administered the dosage. It is rough, but I would recommend doing that if you have to go through that. Of course, we want him to stick around a while!

Has everyone welcomed our new members on those threads?

Feel better soon, Linda. Did you get your flu shot??

FINALLY, drought stricken SoCal is getting much needed rain. Tomorrow we are supposed to get at least 2 inches. Unfortunately with the rain comes mudslides due to the many fires we have had that devasted the land. Hopefully California will somehow recover from such abuse.

My cat Ebony is recovering from a bout of pemphigus which has re-asserted itself. He's been to the doctor and not happy having to wear a collar to keep him from licking his wounds (see my latest blog). Poor kitty. He's an expensive lil' guy but I just can't imagine life without him. He's 13 yrs old and getting up there I know. I've done my best to give him a good life along with my other cat Timon.

Have a beautiful day everyone!!

Feeling worse today. Coughing. I will make it though! I have three appointments this week with my new business and I need to be well!!! Lots of people have "the crud" around here, not just me.

We are warm today and the temps will drop all day tomorrow.

Linda, you are taking your lumps lately. Feel better. Poor Ebony.
Today it's really warm, in the 50's!
Getting ready to go back into work after working from home for a week. It will be a shock and I am not looking forward to it. And it's a difficult week, I am supposed to be making presentation to head of company, we'll see how it goes. And arguing about my employee status. It's too late so I have to get my own health insurance. Freelancers union dropped theirs so it's put a damper on things. Trying to go in tomorrow without anger or bitterness.

Suze, Sounds like you have had a busy weekend!

Diane, poor Ebony! They need us and we need them too!

I have a sore throat, no fever and coughing. If it is not one thing, it's another! It is probably allergies. We have stuff in the air here all the time, the price we pay for beauty. (this part of Texas is called "The Hill Country" and is full of people because it is so nice here) Today they said mold, juniper and fall elm are high.

Good morning everyone!
Had to take my kitty Ebony back to the Vet's yesterday. His auto immune illness is re-asserting itself in the form of sores on his belly, mouth and toenail bed. Poor lil' guy! But he is doing better. The doctor upped his meds, gave me ointment for his tummy sore and oral antibiotics which he is not fond of taking twice a day. Well, what are we going to do? These little furkids need our help. He is 13 yrs old and my other cat Timon is 14. Seniors like their owners! HA! Anyhow, that is how yesterday went.
Today I was up early and went to the grocery store. Love it! Not many there. That's about when I like to shop. Anyone take advantage of the black Friday deals? It's not worth it to me; unless I do it online. Why get trampled for a $20 crockpot anyway? Lol.

Sad to hear of the gout pain. We had peaceful Thanksgiving. I woke in the morning wanting to blog about it and still might, However, youngest SS called and said his mother was being a b*tch and could he come over? Of course, followed soon after by his soon to be fiancée (he has had the ring for a few months). They live in his room at his mother's. I was really pleased that he wanted to spend time with us. He helped me with my printer issue while GF unloaded on DH about his ex. Found out they pay rent to live in the room! Took the rhythm out of my date. Then a BF called to fill me in on a situation at work. Yesterday was the Elves Workshop. We woke at 7 to get ready, left the house to pick them up at 10:30, joined by third elf at 12:30 (her mom told me little elf couldn't get to bed till 4:30 a.m. she was so excited). The kids came over with pizza to help wrap things up and everyone left at 8 p.m. Hope to post the pix later. Recovering rest of the weekend

I know you all must be busy, so I am chatting with myself again. I did make dressing yesterday and chicken for dh with salad and roasted potatoes and carrots. It was delish!

Still have some gout pain... since November 13th. Walked on the treadmill yesterday, however!

We spent most of the day talking business and watching video tools for our new business. When I started to cook, it was 1:30 pm and dh said, "Let's go out." So we went to Luby's which might have taken us an hour to get in due to the line. Then we went to Cracker Barrel, same kind of line. So we ended up at Sirloin Stockade, not a favorite of mine. They were out of dressing and closed right after we walked out the door. I will make dressing tomorrow!

Instead of going out to eat, I am making a dinner here for the two of us. Chicken and dressing (low fat, low sodium), roasted potatoes and carrots, pea salad, green beans, rolls and green salad. I LOVE dressing! (or stuffing - whatever you want to call it)
We are sunny in the 60s!
Have a great day tomorrow, everyone!

Every once in awhile I crave meat. My mother always said I was too lazy to chew :) My meal is really not bad - turkey - it's not glopped up, I'll have a baked sweet potato, and salad. No dessert this year, I think cause of gluten free - usually do a sweet potato cake. DH is the one with the big calorie load. Oh yes, but the stuffing is the category killer :) My background is Jamaican so I do a jerk pork roast, the kids like. Every one around us has snow today but we are on South Shore so just rain.
Happy Thanksgiving all!

Linda, I can't imagine eating no meat. I know it works for you but I think I am part carnivore like my cats! Suze your dinner sounds so mouth watering and dietless..haha.
I fixed a small turkey earlier this month with just a few sides. I don't celebrate the holidays but I do like fixing turkey at least twice a year. I'm just not crazy about ham anymore. My room mate is Puerto Rican and she likes doing a pork roast with lots of onion and garlic. It's really quite good. One of the few Puerto Rican dishes I like.
We still have lots of sun here in SoCal but the days are of course shorter and cooler. Last night I made chicken soup with lots of veggies, garlic and onion. Mmmm...I love soups and stews this time of year. Hope everyone is having a great day.

Hope your toe heals soon, Dlite! and Diane, your foot too.

Suze, your Thanksgiving dinner sounds yummy! We are going out to eat, but no meat for me.

Sheryl, I am eating that way, but yet to get results on heart. My diabetes is in control, however. you all know I have that new diagnosis of A-Fib since Oct. 28.

I have been pretty strict vegetarian for a month except for chicken once a week. The last time I tried vegan, my mouth broke out in sores from lack of amino acids. So if I eat chicken once a week, I do fine in that respect. Organic chicken, of course! I eat dairy, but also organic and not much of it.

Have a nice Thanksgiving, if we don't see you again on the thread!

The three major illness that affect us today are heart disease, type two diabetes, and cancer,
All are cured of made better by a whole food, plant based diet. Our doctors in the US are far behind many other countries in knowing this important fact.

Yes, Diane inserts help. And Linda gout may have been it. Eating vegan or vegan like causes stuff to disappear.
Continuing our winning run, a truck knocked out our mailbox yesterday morning - we live on a very small dead end.
And last night as we started to eat dinner, a fan in the fridge went berserk. It is LOUD and we are going to get part hopefully this a.m. and I have major meeting at 9:30.
Thanksgiving is just us and the kids might stop by to say hey but we will be getting ready for elves on Friday
Turkey breast marinated in soy and honey, yes dressing/stuffing :cornbread, sausage and apples, sweet potatoes for me, mashed for him and he has that string bean casserole. And a big salad.

emoticon hello beauties!
I managed to get in 4 laps at the mall today; which is 2 miles or 40 min. At first my heel was in a lot of pain. I didn't think I could complete a full lap at all but I persevered and the pain at best was a little less. Usually I pay the price when I walk like this but so far my foot on a scale of 1 to 10 is only about a 3! Could it be that the plantar faciitis is actually getting better due to the inserts in my shoes??? Time will tell.
I have been off my feet all week which gets me down emotionally. I really need to exercise for my mind as well as my body.
No Linda, I have no plans for the holiday either. Just taking it easy. I fixed a turkey earlier in the month anyway. I don't like all that heavy fattening food.
Norma, my room mate and "sister" is going to visit her parents for the week on Thursday. They are close to 90 and need her help alot now. Lucky for her it's only less than an hours drive away. I used to go 5 hrs to see my mom. All my family live so far away. ENJOY today and have a blessed day!

The wrist has been in pain for years. Diagnosed as carpal tunnel. Could it have been gout all those years? Hmmm...

I hope everyone has a great week! What are you doing for Thanksgiving? We are doing nothing! We have had family events each month for the last 4 months, so now time for us.

Suze, I am glad nothing happened there!

We had our Thanksgiving feast at church today, it was nice. I am not eating turkey, so I had veggies. No one brought dressing either! I would not have been able to resist it. I love dressing! Even though I am not eating meat, except chicken once a week, we took turkey from Honey Baked Ham. DH said it was delicious.

Foot is slowly coming back to normal. Funny thing, a watch that was tight is now loose. Cannot explain it. I have lost only a lb. lately. Is it the vegetarian eating? Puzzled.

We are warm today, low 60's and sunny. You are right so much to do. Major excitement this afternoon - 6 police cars on block and blocking exit. We are dead end so only way out is throught woods. Only three occupied houses. Kid across street taken out in cuffs. Not comfortable as two years ago SWAT team there and a few weeks ago marked and unmarked cars. don't know what's going on but I can't run.
Hard to believe this is the last week in November!

Yes, I feel OLD with my cane. I am getting better, but still some pain.
I have more energy! Yesterday I made corn chowder, cherry almond muffins and got lots of work done on a new business venture.
Great that you don't have to be at work until December, Suze!
Have a great day everyone!

And the cane just adds insult to injury. I have a very pretty butterfly one. Class with kid went well. He just doesn't know how to use the email program. Glad I don't have to be in office till December! Imagine that!

Sometimes it seems some people get to skate by in life...

Suze, it is so frustrating with the shoes. Maybe we can beadazzle all our ugly shoes? emoticon

I am better today with the gout. Only shoes that feel good are house shoes. I went to a dinner last night with one tennis shoe and one house shoe and cane. Had French onion soup and a lettuce salad with strawberries pecans and feta crumbles. Delicious! Everyone else had steak and fish, but I am not eating meat presently.

Have a great day everyone!

Oh I so relate with the shoes. I have some lovely clothes but the brace and the tie shoes are a downer. Had issue at work on Friday that just burned me up - invited someone who I later found out was an intern to a class they need to take if they want to use a system - 6 times since September! No reply, sent email saying I would have appreciated knowing you weren't coming, you will no longer be invited. System owner told me to remove kids access. His boss threw hissy and now I have to do a special one on one class with this little .....
I was so furious that my physical therapist saw it in my body as soon as I walked in the door. I have to work on that

Right about Cracker Barrel. I don't eat bacon, so not much for me to eat there.

Suze, great on the abs.

The wedding was absolutely beautiful and traditional! Everything was first class all the way.

Only problem, I developed a full blown case of gout while away. I literally could not get my left shoe on my foot... guess what I wore to the wedding? Skechers! Ruined the whole effect. Could not dance. Bummer. Lace dress and Go Walks. What a combo!

Cold today here, in the low 40s, but the sun is out.

Cracker Barrel is certainly not conducive to eating healthy. I do like their breakfasts though, you just have to be choosy.
I ordered their vegetarian plate once when traveling, all the veggies were cooked in bacon grease!!

Oh and Linda my nails barely make it to the next morning. Diane I am metro New York, Long Island to be specific. We may get snow tonight! Glad I work remotely on Fridays. And nice news today, I'll work remotely Thanksgiving week - yea sleep! And I am on an abs streak. Excited also that suit I bought this fall is loose. I need to keep this up. Somehow I always slip up and go back but approaching 60 I think it's time

Linda I will def try the BBQ in Houston when I go. As for the veggies, they sound YUMMY too! Suze where do you live? We get ads on TV for Cracker Barrell too here in SoCal. Facebook has a website called "Bring Cracker Barrell to Southern CA." I guess one day they will have one here..would be awesome!
Have a nice time at the wedding Linda.

Sorry to hear about the pain Diane. My kitties are sleeping on my feet. We are seeing ads for cracker barrel here. To give you an idea of what I was married to my ex bil thought Perkins was close to fine cuisine - seriously!
Can't retire and really like what I do but seem to be in my own personal mercury retrograde vortex

Diane, I have been to Cracker Barrel and la Madeline both. Plus, you will need to eat barbecue when you are in the Houston area. Great bbq here in Texas! Yes, Cracker Barrel is fine Southern cooking, lots of fried foods and butter! emoticon You can get a veggie plate but the veggies are seasoned with butter and bacon!

I got my nails done, now trying to keep them nice until Saturday night! We leave tomorrow so I had to get them done today.

Hope everyone is having a good Wednesday. I awoke with more heel pain so taking it easy today. I walked yesterday and the pain was excruciating all day. I am wondering perhaps if the cooler weather is to blame. Ah well..life goes on. I will survive. ALEVE isn't helping all that much.
The kitties are on my bed snuggling right now. Earlier they were racing through the apt. My sister is away with friends to Palm Springs..her first time there. It's only about an hour and ten minutes by car from where we live. I have never been there either. I'm the homebody although I plan to visit my daughter next year in Texas. She lives close to Houston in a town called Cypress. Very pretty there. I especially love Cracker Barrell restaurant and country store; although not conducive to my diet. Linda, have you eaten at Cracker Barrell?? My daughter has also taken me to la Madeleine's. It's a quaint sandwich shop. Well, everyone stay focused and have a great day!

Getting mani/pedi today. How does this work in the cold weather? I will have to wear flip flops in the cold. Shouldn't be too bad for a short distance. Going tomorrow to south Texas for wedding, will be back late Sunday, so I will be offline a few days.

Suze, I hope you get to retire soon. Diane, glad the weather is better for you.

We are going to be cold throughout the weekend, even in south Texas! Loving it!

Have a great weekend!

Nice on the furniture. Ladies, pills are better than the alternative.
It's in the mid 60's here. Yay!
I was able to sleep 5 mornings. Back to 4ish in the dark tomorrow. I wanna retire!

Linda, I hate being on blood pressure meds. But, alas, I don't want to stroke either so I will take them. When I get another 20 lbs off I may be able to lower the dose. I hope to get off completely one day but it runs in my family so I may never be able to.
FINALLY a cool day today!! It's after 3 p.m. and it's still cloudy and cool. Fall like temps are expected all week too. YAY is all I can say.
Hope everyone having a great day today.

Midwest bundle up today! We are cold in Texas... for us. High in the 50s.

Getting ready for the big wedding, leaving Thursday, will be home Sunday night.

Had a visit to cardiologist today. Have to stay on new drugs. Stroke risk, I sure don't want that! So I will take my pills.

We have our new table and chairs plus rug. Looks nice!

I had a lovely birthday yesterday. My birthday was announced at church, then we went to lunch with friends, 16 in all and I had a "birthday sopapilla" with candle. Dh gave me the traditional years supply of fragrance. Then we went shopping for Christmas lights.
Feeling blessed.

I think walking is fantastic exercise. I walk in all seasons and all kinds of weather, makes it interesting.

Diane, That's good because I am going to walk!

Did a lot today and now I am tired. Going to relax this evening.

emoticon I still have the air conditioner on..it's 90 degrees. Crazy! My daughter in Cypress TX has a sweater on her little dog. It's 52 degrees over there..at least it was this morning.
Two doctors have told me that walking is the best exercise; better even than swimming. And, I was reading in the Atkins book (3rd doctor) that it is better to walk briskly rather than jog or run. I am going to remember that.
Hope you all have a great weekend...

Hi, ladies! Good to see all of you on here.

Suze, support is always good. Diane, keep walking! Sheryl, I bet that house will sparkle!

Getting ready for the wedding next week.

Today I have to take dh's truck to get the turn signal checked out. It is blinking really fast on the left one. Then I will get some other errands done.

We had 30 hours of rain this week plus cooler weather. Love it! AND I feel so much better this week after last week's ER visit.

Have a great Friday!

Happy Birthdays!! Don't forget the cookbook! I don't have to go into office till next Wednesday! I'd be doing cartwheels if I could! The challenge will be walking and drinking enough water. Lunch with a friend tomorrow. She also has autoimmune issues so we are forming our own little support group. Then lunch with niece on Sat. French restaurant with awesome salads. More food research this weekend

emoticon TGIT! The week is winding down again. As I text I have the air conditioner on at home. It's in the 90's again here in SoCal where I live. Hmph! Not what I expect for November. My daughter in Cypress TX is getting lots of rain. OH HOW WE'D LOVE SOME OF IT! Anyhow, today I went to the mall with my sister and we did our 4 laps which is equal to 40 minutes or 2 miles. My foot was hurting otherwise I would've liked to have done 6. Hope everyone has a good evening and getting used to the time change.
