Well today is a new month and a new start to my weight lose journey. I am trying to get to 150 this month. I wanted to be there last month, but did not make it. So I start all over again.
Have a great day everyone.

2015 is the year that I want to stop recovering and start living again!

Aug. 9th, I will start the Ideal Protocol diet. This is a high protein diet where you can lose weight in a healthy way. I hope to have more energy and feel good for a change, and lose weight too!

Flred, I hope you get good news.

I had a busy day at work but survived. It was gotten hot and humid again. I am going to relax and spin after dinner. We are having lamb chops and green beans.

Take care everyone.

Julie - It's nice when you can just relax a bit.
Sue - Wowza! Congrats on how well the new diet is working!

I hope everyone had a nice Sunday. I am on pins and needles about my latest CA-125 test.
I am just hoping I don't get called in the morning. Have a great day tomorrow everybody.

We have had thunderstorms again this evening. I think the weather is contributing to

I had a pretty relaxing day. It has been drizzling here all day. I spent some time sewing and a got a couple of loads of laundry done. We went out to night for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Then we did a little shopping looking for stuff we need for our classes at the Sheep and Wool Festival in a few weeks.

Have a nice weekend.

One of the girls just got back from Twin Falls and she said the smoke was really bad. Hope it clears up before you get that way. Our smoke kind of cleared up some yesterday and it is even better this morning. Hope everyone is having a great day.

Happy Anniversary Julie!

Home doing my usual chore of laundry today.
Kind of a dreary and drizzly day, good for doing some reading and perhaps a nap a little later on.

Ida - I hope you are able to cope with the smoke. Do you have air cleaners in your house?
Julie - Happy anniversary!
Shari - Great news, I am sure it is a relief to finally get it scheduled.
Sue - I hope you had a good weigh in.

I am so, so glad it is finally the end of the week! I hope everyone has a great weekend.

I am so glad it is Friday, it was a short work week because I had Mon and Tues off, but seems like it has lasted forever. I left work a little early and it started to rain as I walked out of the building, just a nice gentle rain. I got home and did the chores. Waiting for DH to get home.

Today is our 33rd wedding anniversary.

We closed on my moms house today.

Looking forward to spending some time sewing over the weekend. I have lots of laundry to do.

Have a good evening!

Shari, I hope you hear from them soon! I am still waiting to hear from the imaging center about getting my port fixed. I know it needs to be flushed or I could get a bad infection.

Julie, what a long day you had! I don't know how you do it!

Ida, I'm glad the smoke is clearing. That has to be hard on your breathing!

Flred, I am sorry to hear about your migraines! They are so miserable and debilitating! I sure hope you are better today!

My weigh in is today. I think I have lost even more. So far, 6.6 lbs. I'll find out tonight:)

Shari - I hope you hear about your ultrasound, I am sure wondering what is going on is
very stressful.
Ida - I am glad the smoke is better in your area. Your poor friends must be scared to death.
When I lived in CA we had to prepare to evacuate one time. Thankfully, the fire
changed course and we didn't have to go, but it was not fun.
Sue - I hope you have a good weigh in tomorrow.
Kay - I hope you got to tour the Botanic Gardens as planned.
Julie - You really did a good job on it. I especially liked the colorful way you depicted
the sheep.

My migraines continued today. I am assuming some of the cause is stress. I go in
tomorrow for blood work. It's been a busy day. I hope everyone has a good day
tomorrow.

I had a pretty good day but work is a zoo. I haven't felt this over whelmed in a long time. I am just taking it one day at a time, some day I will be caught up.

I had really long day yesterday starting at 5 am with my workout then ending when I got home around 9 pm after playing music with my friends. We have a break for quartet because our viola player is off to Europe today for about 5 weeks

I am going out to see the sheep and take a short walk.

Take care everyone.

I got out for my grocery shopping this morning, glad to have that behind me until next week again.

I left a message with the cancer center this morning that it's been a week, and I still haven't heard from the hospital about when my ultrasound of the liver will be. I hope they didn't lose the orders for it.

Happy Thursday morning!

Flred, I hope your migranes go away soon.

Today, I feel like we are actually taking off for our "real" vacation. We have spent the last week in Illinois where we used to live visiting friends, family and going to doctor's appointments. Hubby has one more appointment this morning. We think he will be done around noon and we can drive up to Green Bay....getting there around 3:30pm. I want to go tour the Botanic Gardens there this afternoon before they close. It looks like the weather is going to be good today for driving and walking around outdoors.

Wishing everyone a good day!

I am glad you liked my quilt. I spent time at work doodling while I waited for my computer, to come up with the blocks. It took me about a month to make the quilt.

It has been a long day take care everyone.

I love the quilt

Sue......
Some people are wearing mask, it really does not help. The fire is heading to the southeast of us now,

Kay........

Today the smoke is so thick that I can just barley see the neighbors hose three properties over from us. Big difference from yesterday.


We have 10 fires burning in a 30 mile radius of us and everyone is hoping for rain to come.

Friends of mine that live in Washington State said that the state is under a state of emergency because of all the fires..

Will be staying inside as much as possible today. Have a great day everyone.

Julie, what a beautiful quilt!! I'm sure it will be a hit at the auction.

Ida, I can see the smoke in your pictures. Does it do any good to wear a mask? Are people doing that?

Shari, thinking of you and hoping you have a good day today.

Yesterday, I went into Chicago to have a quick visit with my oldest son. He is at that stage in his life where work is everything.....I remember that stage in my own life when I was about his age (36). It was good to see him.

Today is our last full day in the Chicago area before we head up to Green Bay tomorrow. I plan on using part of the time to spray some of my camp clothing with bug repellant. I'm thinking of doing the zip off pants legs on my convertable pants and my shoes. Bug bites and I don't play well together, so it would be good if this spray on repellant helps!

My sheep quilt. The quilt is my own design. I drew out each block and made applique pieces for each sheep. The quilt will be part of an auction raising money for Wi Sheep Breeders Asso. scholarship fund in Sept. at the WI sheep and Wool Festival.

I had a nice relaxing day. After we got home from all our running around in the am. I pot a load of jeans in the washer and went out and finished picking grass and stuff out of a wool fleece. I still have three fleeces to go.

Well not to much else is going on.

Take care everyone.

Afternoon....
Today is the first day I have been able to get a few pictures of the fire. On the first picture the fire started in the hills just above the big rock to the right. It has moved all the way to the left of the picture. The second picture is where it is blazing up this after noon. The fire so far has burned over 3,000 acres of forest and is only contained 1%. It is nice that we have a little wind to clear the smoke out but it will not last. It is kind of hard to see where the smoke is coming up in the distance to the left.

I am getting ready to leave for my mamogram. Dh is coming with me. After we are down we sre going to the feed mill for turkey, chicken feed plus corn for the sheep.

Hopefully will stop at the quilt shop near buy.

My brother and sister have been working on cleaning out moms house for the past 8 months spending a few hours each day. We have been over for a couple of weekends to help. My brother was wondering what he will do once they close on the house. Wyn his wife says he will be able to fill the time.

Take care everyone.

Kay, I live in CA and I have been having a lot of asthma attacks lately that I'm sure are from the smoke. I usually only have one or two a year, but I've 4-5 just in the last couple of weeks. I would be very careful coming this way since you have asthma!

I am down another couple of lbs today!

Aug. 9th, I will start the Ideal Protocol diet. This is a high protein diet where you can lose weight in a healthy way. I hope to have more energy and feel good for a change, and lose weight too!

Ida, I wish I could just post an image of the map of our road trip so you could see where we are going, but I can't figure out how to do that. We are going to be going to Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Twin Falls ID, Troutdale OR, Cascade Locks OR, Mt Rainier and Seattle going west. After Seattle, we will be goint to Portland, Eugene and Ashland OR. From what I've been reading, it seems that it's likely we will be encountering smoke from the fires along the way. We are going to be camping a lot so I'm a little nervous about it with my asthma.

We are visiting with my sons this week in the Chicago area. Today, I'm taking the train into the city to meet with my oldest son. Fortunately, it looks like the weather is going to be great today for walking around the city. I'm not sure what he has planned for us.

Ida - It sounds terrible. I hope you aren't so close that you will have to evacuate.
Kay - Hope you are enjoying your trip.
Julie - Packing up a family member's house is a huge job. It sounds like you have
had an exhausting time. I am glad you got to visit with your mom.
Carole - I hope you get good scan results.
Sue - It sounds like you are really making progress with your diet. I hope you
can get your port flushed soon.

It's been a busy day. Hot and humid here today. I hope everybody has a good day tomorrow.

Hi All!
Julie, I had to empty out my mom's house when she moved into assisted living. It's a huge job to do that! I'm glad you had some help from your family.

Ida, I hope you are feeling better. I'm concerned about all the fires since we will be camping out there in the next few weeks. I'm bringing my asthma medication, but I'm thinking that won't be enough if the smoke is bad.

Sue, I hope you can get your port issues fixed easily.

We are in Illinois for the next couple days visiting friends and family. Hubby is also getting in some doctor visits so he can continue to get his prescriptions refilled.

I just finished catching up with what has been happening. It sounds like most people are doing well.

We went on our trip, The test I need to have is a urinalysis so I will have that done when I go for my mammogram tomorrow. The lab and radiology lab are right next to each other. Then I will pick up my meds and get them started. I watched what I ate like I was doing when my diabetes was originally diagnosed several years ago and monitored my blood sugars all weekend.

We went to visit my family for a long weekend. We saw everyone including nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. I spent most of Saturday with my mom. I took here to her hair appointment then we went shopping at the quilt store. It was time for lunch when we got back so we went and got lunch while mom ate hers. We also rented a storage unit so we could get the last of the stuff out of the moms house. Later Sat. afternoon we picked up mom and went to our family picnic. We had a nice time sitting in the park visiting. As we were getting ready to leave the park mom said she wanted a hamburger, so we stopped and got her one. She was sitting on her bed eating it when we left.

We close on her house on Tuesday and need everything out by Weds. We spent a few hours moving stuff to the storage unit on Sunday.Then after we got some lunch we went and spent the afternoon with mom.

My brother texted me that they are almost done, just part of the garage to go.

I have one more day off before going back to work.

Take care everyone.

Julie

Carole; I've had my current port since April 2007; as long as yours has been flushed once per month, and there hasn't been any problems with it, you probably won't need to get a new one.

Praying that you have good scan results. emoticon

Sue Your diet sounds very healthy. When I was off chemo, I had to have my port flushed once a month. Will the doctors put in a new one ?

Today I went for a CAT scan, that does not take that long, but the whole time your praying.
Ida- The fires sound horrible.

Hello everybody! I have not been on here much lately and I don't know why. I miss talking to everyone but too lazy to sit here at the computer for long:)
The doctor said she thinks I have a vitamin deficiency but can't do a blood test until they get my port fixed. It has been 3 months since it has been flushed or anything. I'm really getting worried about it! She said she will make sure I get a call soon to get it fixed. I think she is great! I hope I get this call this week:)

I have been doing the Ideal Protocol diet and I have lost 3 inches and 8 lbs in 2 weeks! It is really healthy, high protein, no sugar or carb diet and seems to be working great. I take supplements and eat 8 oz of lean meat and 4 cups of veggies daily. 2 cups for lunch and 2 cups for dinner. I also started taking B-12, magnesium, and a one-a-day to see if that helps the cramping.

Hope everyone has a great day!

I am missing church again this week. I am still not feeling good. I was sick to my stomach earlier and I am still stuffed up, sneezing and feel very cold. I think some of it could be from the fires around us here. We have 2 that are within 10 miles and the smoke is so thick. I wish it would get a little windy to clear out some of the smoke. Also it got down to 26 degrees this morning. I am glad that I have been covering my garden at night.

Prayers are out there for all my team members.
Prayers are out there for all the fire fighters also. They are asking for people to volunteer to help.

Thank you both!
Today I'm planning to take it easy for the most part. Need to save some energy for tomorrow; have my standing order lab work to do, and I might pick up a few groceries after I am done.

Today is going pretty well so far; started out feeling tired and worn out, but now I feel like I am getting a bit of a "second wind"; maybe that's because I've finished my "big chore" of the day, the laundry, and now the rest of my day will be fairly easy.

Julie, it seems like things always happen right before a trip! I hope you have a fun weekend.

Shari, I'm sorry to hear about your liver function tests. ugh....

Well, we are off on our trip now...but it was hard getting out the door! The guy that has been cutting our grass for years told us the day before we were leaving that he has sold his business. We hope the new guy does what he is supposed to do while we are gone. The day we left, I had a dentist appointment to have a permanent crown put on....it didn't fit, so I have to live with my temporary crown for the next two months....they gave me glue in case it falls out while I'm travelling. Last, but not least, I hit a brick wall at our house with our car right as we were leaving!!! Grrr.....

After all that, we drove to Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky (2.5 hour drive) and set up our campsite for the night. Perfect weather for camping. We took a "lantern tour" of the cave yesterday morning and then drove up to my son's house in Illinois. We are spending almost a week here before we really get going on our trip.

Julie, I hope the testing won't delay your trip for too long.

I had an oncologist appointment today; blood work for the liver not looking good, so I'm going to be scheduled for an ultrasound of the liver.

I had a pretty good day until I got home.

My doctors nurse called at 8:30 AM leaving me a message to call,. They have my work number I wish they would call me at work,rather then waiting for me to get the message after they are gone for the day. I am just frustrated right now. I called the number they left and found out what was going on. My diabetes has come back which I already knew, but now they want to do all this stuff and we are leaving tomorrow for a long weekend. If they had called me at work we could of taken care of things before we left. Oh well!

Timmy is back home now, and doing great! We still don't know what caused the seizure, but one of his tests came back that he might possibly have an infection; some of his blood work had to be sent to another lab, so it will take a couple of days to find out what infection he has, if he has one. In the meantime, I have antibiotics to give him just in case. For now, the plan is just to watch him, and if he has any more seizures, then my regular vet can put him on anti-seizure meds.
