Good Morning Team!

Debby made a comment on her post about not sure what to do to get ready for the winter months. This is what I do.

I am preparing any garden beds for winter
I am also checking for cracked windows and bad seals and this includes my outside doors.
Since I heat primarily with wood I am working on my wood supply as well.
Making sure my chickens are ready for winter as well.
Is my generator tuned up and does it start easy?
Anyone got any ideas to add?

Thanks for the link Debbie, I knew tart Cherries was good for arthritis, but never heard of it as a sleep aid before. I will put it on my list to look for....

Sorry about your knee Dorothy - I can certainly sympathize.

My dad was put on Melatonin when he was on Dialysis. It's "supposed" to be safe to use. From what the patients told me, nothing works for very long. If I can get into "the right" position at night, I pop right off to sleep. I've never taken a sleep aid - yet.

I use Tart Cherry capsules - I open them into my breakfast and sometimes my oatmeal at night.

Dorothy your knee? Ha Ha, I've heard of naming your phone and car.

Have you tried these newer wraps with copper they've been tooting? I don't know if they only work for pain or inflammation . I know that the enzyme in pineapple helps. I'm sure you are aware of that.

Sounds like you have a farm. Maybe you can get someone to help you... I would if I lived nearby.

Good Morning Team!

Dorothy, my knee is still swelling up to a basket ball. by night fall :-( But My mornings start off with the swelling down. I have to get this farm ready before the Winter months set in. I pray my knee holds out for a little longer.

Today I am stacking firewood and working on finishing touches of the coop. The inside is complete now I am working on the porch/deck and the little stuff on the chicken run.

I have breads to bake with my zucchini and stripping all the bedding and airing it all out.

Have a Super Day everyone!

Better than synthetic melatonin is tart cherry juice. I think that was posted somewhere on our team recently. Article said that manmade melatonin can be harmful. Anyone remember where that article was?

wow, sorry to hear that Linda, that would be hard to deal with. I have had a lot more problems off and on with it since hitting menopause, but a lot of other things are adding to it too.

I am not a doctor or pharmacist so speaking with them would be the best when it comes to mixing prescription meds.
I know since I don't take any prescription meds, that I wouldn't take anymore than 2 mg of melatonin. And not for more than 2 weeks. I would use it for travel and change of time zones. Just to get me back on track.

Here is a link to better explain REM sleep and it's benefits.

EJ, I have tried so hard not to sleep during the day and will fall asleep standing at the sink, or "in the bathroom" or whatever..... But even if I do manage to stay awake during the day, I still can't sleep at night.

So can you tell me about this melatonin. How much to take, and if there are any contra indications (I am on a lot of meds.....)

Last night I did take a Tylenol Pain Night which has a muscle relaxer which took some of the pain away..... and I did manage to fall asleep around 3. Slept on and off until about 7:30 so got about 3 hours total. I never go into REM sleep and have not had a dream in almost 30 years..... According to the sleep study they did, I wake up about 1.6 times an hour which is not enough to diagnose as sleep apnea.... Doctor wanted me to take sleeping pills and I took 1 and that was 1 too many as far as I am concerned. I got rid of the rest of the pills. I said "never again" but I will certainly look into melatonin....

Good Morning everyone!

Hey my swollen knee is more than likely from an old injury showing it ugly head. No worries.

Mary I am glad to see you back with us!
JILLINENOLA sounds like a lot of fun at the pumpkin patch.
JMAHNKEN I hope you can get things straightened out because you can't catch up with your sleep with daytime naps. You are missing out on the repairing and cell regenerating rest your body needs.
Linda, this is where you may have to use melatonin for a week or 2 to get back on your normal sleep routine. And no afternoon sleeping. Your REM sleep happens from 11PM to 3AM. Most important for regeneration.

Good morning! EJ so sorry about your knee, I hoope all goes well with the new doctor!!

Dorothy, I have screws from a bunionectomy still in my foot. Mine do stick up, but are holding on so far.

I had surgery on my neck on September 3rd. I thought I had about 6 or so screws put in, but I was wrong, there are 10 screws in my neck. I had nothing between my vertebrae back there at all! YIKES!!! The good news is that it is healing well!

Sorry to hear it Linda, I have been having trouble sleeping at night lately too. Stress from home life is making it so I can't always turn my mind off, and the heat that we are having day and night are not helping either. I have too been doing little naps in the day trying to catch up.

Well, I mess my knee up! so I have to find a doc who can tell me what I have done to it!
I dislike having to find a new doc but this will take an ortho doc to give the info I need.

Does anyone have an a Fall tradition they want to share with us?
I have many deciduous trees so raking leaves into a pile to let the kids jump in it has been one of mine. I take pics of the kids in the leaves.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Good Morning Team!

How are you doing with your weight goals?? Me, I fell off scale and now it is time to get back to business. My trip included a lot of stair climbing and a ton of walking but I ate a lot of stuff too!
I am getting back to the gym and if I can find a salt water pool I will start that too!

Today I am getting bids on 9 of my windows and I am also doing some deep cleaning getting ready for the winter months. Have a super day all!

Dinner was fabulous, just the right amount of garlic to please all. We will be going back! I don't drink but had a sip of friends which was made with Lavender infused vodka, fresh lemon juice and Earl Gray tea. It was quite yummy.

"Anything with the name "Garlic" has me interested!!!"

I lived in the lower mainland area of BC. There was a restaurant there called the Stinking Rose.... Yeah, it was all garlic! But unless you knew what the name Stinking Rose means, how would anyone know????

Just a quick Huddle before I go for breakfast and then pack to check out and then back to town for some last minute shopping and the drive home. This fun went way to fast for me!

Good Morning Team!

I am having a blast here in Bavarian Town!
We went on a horse and buggy ride around the town had a delicious dinner we have done some wine tasting. I guess you can say the diet is on hold till Monday morning. The weather is gorgeous! The sun is out and it is a dry upper 70's.

I hope you all are doing well! I will see you all Monday morning.

Could not sleep the last couple of nights, I mean awake all night long.....

Yesterday I went to Sis's and did my laundry, had maybe a 10 minute nap and that was it. Did not sleep again last night

So I am very dragged out today. I hope I can get some sleep tonight. I hate to have to take anything to make me sleep, it upsets my body even more than it already is .....

Good Morning Team!

Breakfast doesn't have to be a lot! Just something to break the fast your body experiences during the night and start your metabolism. :-)

Are you working of your immune system? Is there something special you do in the late summer early fall to help?
I make sure I take my Probiotics at night before bed and My Community mushrooms by Host Defense

I try eat something but it's usually a protein shake. Eating early in the morning is not my favorite time to eat, I'd rather eat a big lunch around 11am. I know it's not the right way but it works for me.

Good Morning Team!

Thank you all for the answers to my question of the Day!

Do you normally eat breakfast? Why or why not??

I normally eat breakfast. Sometimes it;s a big breakfast and sometimes it is just a protein drink.
I feel better and have more energy when I eat a breakfast.

I don't do much for the specific holidays except for Christmas. If I remember to put a little bit of Halloween stuff up for trick-or-treaters then it's usually just right before Halloween (I still love to carve pumpkins, though)

Used to do the holidays(Christmas) but now I don't even do that.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
