emoticon Possibly today, certainly cloudy and the wind whipping up every so often. In answer to your question Rhonda, yes, cooler and less humid, but it is still bouncing up and down. Two days ago you would have guessed it was full summer.

I am just in from digging out the area around a light post beside our driveway. Two days ago I dug out the one on the other side. So now have 2 gardens. I have sedums that were in there before and now have another sedum and an ornamental grass on each side. The plan is to see how well everything winters and this Spring plant colourful annuals while I decide if we will put in more perennials. I was so so sore the first time and feeling it now but not as bad.

Rhonda, glad you are feeling better and I know you feel even better when you get in your exercise.

Off to the shower.

Cheers Elizabeth

emoticon emoticon Good Afternoon

So glad that you are feeling better Rhonda! And exercising when not well is not a good idea so I think you were smart.

Your sister, my Al. Al doesn't get it at all that 'well controlled' is not the same as no problems. He just will not accept that any blood sugar higher than normal causes long term damage. And now, in my opinion it is starting to happen.

Bariatric Surgery TWICE? OMG emoticon I am surprised they would do it twice unless the first time was a band. I have seen shows where they have to do a second when the band causes problems. And to think now she has has to do a liquid fast too? I am passing this info on to Katrina. If she thinks it is a magic pill this may jolt her a little.

You keep recovering and Desi-are you out on the pickleball court?

Cheers Elizabeth

emoticon I feel a lot better, but my voice still sounds rough! I'm planning on getting some exercise in this week, I had to let it go last week. Unless I can count coughing as a full body workout. emoticon

Elizabeth my sister won't make any changes to her diet either, she will add another medicine before she would give up sugar, bread etc. I know your are struggling with telling your niece about your concerns listen to your heart.You are so right about having to make major changes when you have the surgery, I know someone who has had the surgery twice and is now on a liquid fast to lose weight. It boggles my mind.

Desi how is it going? emoticon

emoticon Rhonda! I know how hard those sinus infections hit you. As a big talker I really sympathize when you say you can't.

Sounds like you are rocking Desi! emoticon

I am trying, really hard and I am feeling better for it. And no, Al will not go gluten-free. He is diabetic for 16 years and still refuses to make any dietary changes, even with his blood sugar starting to creep up.

If you want to do DNA, I believe the only one testing for health traits in 23andme.com

My niece was here last weekend. She is scheduled for Bariatric surgery in November. I am so torn. I want to be very supportive as she REALLY needs to get her weight down. She is not yet 30 and already experiencing weight related health issues. On the other hand I know what a life changer that surgery is, not just the weight but everything else, that I keep stopping myself from blurting "don't do it".

Hope you had a rocking weekend

Cheers Elizabeth

Good Morning Elizabeth emoticon glad you had a great trip! Interesting about your dna results. I wonder if Al will give up gluten? It sounds like you are ready to rock! emoticon
I only like smoked turkey.

I think I have a sinus infection, I have been having a lot of sinus drainage and I have no voice! I can barley squeak, work should be interesting today with no voice and of course I have several meetings. Good news I won't have to worry about saying the wrong thing. emoticon

emoticon Good Morning Desi and Rhonda emoticon

I am just back from a week visiting friends in N.J. and Maryland. We had a very awesome time, now back to business.

It looks like both of you have been really attentive to your process emoticon I never liked turkey even though I love love love chicken; at least I didn't until I tasted the ones Al roasts. This past week has been mostly seafood for me, considering where we were, which is why there is chicken defrosting for tonight.

I got my results back from 23andme! I was very disappointed they did not find any Native American DNA, which our family legend said was there, but Al is pouting when the gene associated to celiac disease WAS found. Considering my Mom and a cousin are celiac and I feel better avoiding gluten I was not surprised. Carrying the gene is not the only indicator that one will develop the disease but 90% of celiacs have it. For me it helps justify my decision to avoid gluten.

So, better dress and do some exercise.

You ladies keep rocking it.

Cheers Elizabeth

I'm using a whole chicken and I add some smoked turkey necks in and also chicken wings. I also through in beef bones if I have any on hand. Desi what kind of gelatin are you using? You could cook up a big batch of ground meat, it is very versatile that is one of my go to foods when I have no idea what I want to cook. emoticon
