Bella is our DIL's little terrier. DIL watches Kiwi when we travel, and we watch Bella when they travel. Neither dog does well in kennels, so we switch off. Since we visit in each other's homes when not traveling, the two dogs are on very friendly terms and don't mind staying with each other when one of us leaves.

All is well here. Kiwi will be on medication until Wednesday AM, and is back to himself already.

Have a glorious day. Glad you have a new opportunity to work.

Kiwi continues to improve. His digestive system is normal, and his aggressive appetite is back. Such a foody. He continues with medication until it's gone Wednesday AM. His food is all low fat "gastroenteric diet" from the vet, both dry and canned. When that canned food is gone, I'll get some low fat senior canned dog food to supplement his diet dry food. He's not getting a great amount of canned food. I use a small meatball size to hide his pills in since he can't have peanut butter or cheese for now. When his 6 pound bag of diet food is gone, I'll buy low fat senior dry food from Walmart. Probably IAM's again, but a healthier product for his age, not the IAM's lamb and rice for age: 1+ pro active dogs. He's not active enough.

Bella is with us now until July 2nd, then Kiwi goes to the lake house with them July 3rd. We head to Michigan July 5th.

Joe doesn't like to be on the road over holidays, so we're delaying our departure until after the 4th. Motel rates, we've found, are high surrounding holidays. Our wheelchair son is competing in a wheelchair tennis tournament in Grand Rapids July 6-8. That's first on our agenda.

I'm back to walking, but watching the activity carefully. Getting my 10K+ Not hitting 5 miles as regularly.

I had an excellent checkup with my doctor who's pleased with my lifestyle and health.

Blessing wished for you always. Hugs.

Well, Kiwi's mediations have kicked in and he's remarkably improved already. We have a long way to go, but he was hungry this morning and took his pills inside the canned dog food eagerly. So we'll get through this.

Making dressing for the Haiti missionary outreach was rewarding. I hope to help them out in the future some more.

All is well here. We had some rain from the tropical storm but it has moved East from Texas now and we're drying up.

Kiwi has been a very nauseated little dog. No food or water for over 40 hours. No fooling. Very scary. Finally he is nibbling a bit. All the blood tests were neutral, so no long treatments, Terribly expensive. Ouch!!!! Yes, we had to take care of him, but vets just charge so much. He drank water from a neighbor's gutter down spout that empties into the street this morning, and again this afternoon. He's ignoring his own water bowls, so I went to the down spout and threw in three 20 oz tumblers of water before his walk. Sure enough he guzzled that water. Sigh. He refused all food offered but DIL came over and hand fed him the chicken I put down on a saucer for him. He ate it from her, and a piece of white bun from her. I cooked white rice, but he refused it. Neighbor gave him a can of dog chicken food. He snarfed 1/2 the can. So he refused all I offer, but eats for others. He got a nausea shot, and is taking nausea pills from the vet. He had diarrhea after drinking on his morning walk, and was able to tinkle in two of his walks. So he's on the mend.

Craft circle was rewarding this morning. One gal wanted a larger yarn bag from me, so she picked out pink fabric from the store room, and I made it. She knits knockers (knit false breasts for gals who've lost their breast) and wanted a larger bag for her knitting. That was rewarding.

Tomorrow I am attending another DIL's church to make dresses for their mission project. The dresses can be made from pillow cases, or rectangles of fabric. It's an assembly line venture, so we'll just help out wherever we're stationed.

Megan and her boy friend are taking us out to dinner tomorrow night for Father's Day. Nice!

My darling dachshund is in distress dry heaving and rubbed the top of his nose raw. Taking him to the vet at 11:15. He's not been acting normal for a few days, but I didn't see him heaving until this morning. Sad for the little guy.

Today is Father's Day. Church was lovely honoring our men. Loved it.
Hope you can do something special for the men in your lives.

We are heading to the lake to be with our daughter and family. They are having a cook out and invited us to join them. We haven't seen where they park their camper so it will be a happy time to see where they love to unwind.

Enjoy

the thing that I learned is that you must track your food faithfully every day. It really keeps you on track to stay the same and lose!! I have been tracking and it holds me accountable

Today I returned to my mall walk, but apparently overdid it. Sore again or still. More resting required, I guess.

Eating carefully. Cannot gain weight this close to vacation time. Yikes!

Two days without mall walk. Yesterday bc of my sore ankle, today bc of my American Sewing Guild meeting. Have to eat very carefully. Ouch. Walking burns calories for me.

Knitting and reading in my down time with my ankle.

We walked the mall again. Then I attended Silver Sneakers for quite a workout. After that I stopped in JoAnn's for a few things. Got my 10,000 steps already.

We have light showers today on and off.

We both walked in the mall. DH is actually walking now instead of just sitting. Gearing up for our trip, I guess. I wanted to skip the mall walk, but he's recently started walking and thought we should do that first.

My DH and I are totally zapped. Today we removed screens and washed the lower windows. What a chore, and in this heat, too. DH got nauseated from the heat and threw up. I gave him ice water, and ice for his forehead. He's still resting - - been an hour now. I took a cool shower to cool down, but he wouldn't get up to do that. His color is normal now, so I guess he's OK. Very scary situation. I did part of the windows last week, asked him to help today removing screens and finishing up the chore. We just took on too much for old folks.

Our laundry is done now. The towels are in the dryer and that's the last load. I'll hang up the dark clothes after I rest here a while.

Be good to yourself, and don't overdue the chores.

10 new yarn bags ready to donate to Craft Circle in my church. Two orange, two green, three blue sheep, and three black and white sheep. Now I have to start a new series of projects for my contribution.

Knit another dish cloth last night,so I have 16 ready for gifts. Feels good. I like to be prepared ahead of time.

All is well here.

Today is Mike's 59th birthday. He's our oldest son, but his sister is two years ahead of him. Wow! My kiddos are nearing retirement age, too. All four of ours can get senior discounts now bc they're past 55. So funny. We had our babies close together.

Today was my church's craft circle day. So much fun with talented ladies. Very inspiring. I completed one more yarn bag, but cut out and pinned together four total; I have three ready to stitch up for another time.

DH dropped off my two bags of good clean used clothes to the women's assistance center.

Happy sunshine today. All is well.

I made a yarn bag today to hold my yarn as I knit. I used left overs from the knitting bag I made a few years back for the lining and the appliqué on the front.

The rain yesterday was awesome. I know we're in for more, but the plants respond beautifully.

Our weekend with our youngest son and DIL in their Canyon Lake home was relaxing. Grand daughter Tara Jean and her little family joined us for dinner at the Grist Mill Saturday evening. Such a joy to share love with our family.

I'm cleaning out closets of clothes I don't wear and need to pass on. That will be today's big push after I walk my little dachshund, and walk some in the mall. I only missed my 10,000 step goal once this weekend - on traveling day. We went to the outlet mall in San Marcos
Saturday and had a fun time looking and shopping. Our son was on a mission to replace some shorts and shoes for his wardrobe, so DIL and I happily joined him. My dear Joe didn't buy a thing, but he never wants anything. I can always find something wonderful to bring home.

Then we went to Gruene and a visited the Lucky Ewe yarn shop. Such a great experience. I love to drop in there and browse. Always find goodies, and I did again.

Happy Monday. Plan positive and reach for your goals.

Got my hair cut today. I've been letting it grow longer, so I could change things up a bit. I think I'll really like it. I didn't let the stylist use a blow dryer or curling iron or any product on it. I wanted a style that would be good right out of the shower. Quite a challenge for her, but she did great. My hair is super thin, and now I have a bald spot in the rear. So finding something that would work was not easy. At 81 years old things just keep getting interesting. Grins.

I didn't get my normal walk in bc I wanted to be early at the beauty shop. We'll see how the rest of the day goes.

Very warm climbing into the 90's again.

Attended a marvelous recital for one of my students. Had no idea she would sing opera selections. Fantastic voice. Awesome. Very rewarding. Her parents both teach at the private school where I sub, and she just graduated with honors. What a sweet time for them, and to include my DH and I.

Temps in the 90's here.

Good start on my activity level today. Walked 10 K, grocery shopped again. Laundry done.

I'm heading up to my sewing room for some fun now.

Take care and live positively.

We had cats, and all sorts of amphibians, and little rodent types as the kids were growing up. Now it's just one dachshund. Pets make traveling harder, whether we take him, or find a relative to keep him while we're gone. Kennels do not work for him.

Looking forward to Michigan time especially as Texas heats up. Great weather today. Started in high 50's and climbing to low 80's. I have walked over 10,000 steps today and still have some energy left, so I hope to accomplish some needed tasks.

Slowly my vitality is returning. I feel good again today so will take advantage of it.

Sending hugs and warm thoughts to all of you.

Mackinac is not pretty this a.m. worked until 11 last night at hotel. Really hoped for a nice morning walk. Not a rain walker especially in cold rain. My hip is complaining. At least AT &T has my phone and devices working.
Jean, thank you so much for your kind words and understanding about Koby. We still find ourselves looking for him as we go through the day. Like you and Joe, Dan and I are dog people. We aren't complete without a pet. I would take my cousin's dog walking, but the weather won't cooperate when I'm not working...
Reeney, don't give up on adding exercise to your day. Start with a small number of minutes. Sounds like you have daycare kids that in itself must keep you active.
Jean the little quilt is so cute. It's bright colors will be stimulating for the little one. Good news about your Michigan adventure!

losing weight is 80 % eating less and 20% exercise. getting started is tracking your food honestly. starting exercise may be hard but walking is a good start

For me it's increased activity with decreased calories. No matter how you get the activity level boosted, that's what it takes.

Great day at craft circle. Very enjoyable.

Yes, we go to visit family. Until 1981 Michigan was our home. Our four children joined us in Texas over the next 8 or so years. One son and his family returned to Michigan 22 years ago. We have extended family scattered around Michigan and it's always good to see them. DH has two uncles and one aunt pushing 100 - all in their mid to late 90's. Beautiful folks still mentally alert and so fun to be with. Both uncles live in assisted living facilities, and his dear aunt lives with one of her sons. We return every summer, but lately we've flown. Just not this year.

Much cherished rain has come to us this week. Badly needed. Some sad flooding and tornadoes, but not close to us.

Here's to productivity. I've cut back on walking the mall so I'll have more energy to accomplish chores here. Not as good for my weight, but satisfying to get things done.

Computer is really slow today.

May try to come back later. This is ridiculous.

Sending love and prayers for you Ginna. Looks like we're driving to Michigan this summer. Unusual for us, but time is not a problem so it should be fine. As long as we're not rushed, I can handle the drive.

Happy Sunday
