I hope everyone is doing okay this week. How are things going Marty? I hope things work out for you, your job sounds very stressful.
I'm struggling with my weight and blood sugars again. It happens every now and then. My blood sugars go up up up and the doctor changes my meds and I start bottoming out. There's no happy medium for me. My asthma is flaring right and left. Every time I go outside I come in and cough and wheeze for an hour. I'm so tired of that. Seems the slightest change causes me problems.
I'll be leaving Christmas weekend for about 5 weeks. I don't believe the place we're staying at has internet, I won't know that until we get there on December 30th - we're headed (my brother and I) to New Smyrna Beach, Florida for four weeks. This is a different area of the beach and different condos, so I don't know. From the photo it looks like a good walk on the boardwalk before we get to the actual beach area. I'm spoiled with the short walk to the beach. So we shall see how this goes. If all goes as planned my son will be joining us in mid January for almost a week and my son and I will go home together. So it will be interesting. Pray nothing comes up so that my son can join us. He really really needs to get away.
Take care. Laugh, love and live your life now. Tomorrow's not guaranteed. Spread joy in your and others lives.

The weather is so screwed up here in Kentucky. Tonight we're supposed to warm up in advance of a strong cold front. I'm so tired of these fronts coming through 3 times a week. Ugh!!!

Been so busy! I've been working on Genealogy as I've had my DNA done, so I'm trying to make new connections. Plus I'm trying to enter all the stuff I lost when my old computer crashed and I had to reinstall my program. It deleted all my sources and fun stuff.
Add to that working on my 2nd cookbook. It's nearing completion. All sweets - cakes, desserts and pies. I can wait to finish it. This cookbook will be better than my first one, I hope.

Still at the beach. We're down beach from where we were. We leave next Saturday. Had a nice day in the pool yesterday. I walked 52 miles last week mostly on the beach

I didn't realize I'd been away from the group so long. Sorry your adventure didn't go as planned.
I've been working on genealogy and wrote and published my first cookbook. I've started my 2nd cookbook.
Now I'm celebrating my 63rd birthday at the beach in New Smyrna beach Florida post hurricane Irma. Power was restored Thursday. We got here yesterday. I've had 2 nice beach walks. The boardwalk at the condo was damaged during the hurricane so I have to walk down 2 blocks to access the beach.
Hope you have a great day

So far this week has been good to me!

I attempted my first backpacking trip this weekend, but it didn't go as planned. I over-packed water, and that slowed me down a lot. Then my fiance suffered a long bout of nausea on the trail, bringing us to a crawl. After 9 hours on the trail, we realized we weren't going to make it to the tent site by nightfall, so we headed back to the car. When we were about 4 miles from the car, I ended up taking a spill and breaking a trekking pole. I was unscathed, thankfully.

We ended up "camping" at a Best Western, then spent the following day exploring the back roads of Vermont.

When I came back from my little trip I got a call with a job offer! The pay isn't the best, but is still much more than I'm used to, and it's a union position so I think it comes with a good benefits package.

Last night at 9:30 the relief cook calls camp and quits.
The owner comes over to the cabin very angry with me, somehow this is my fault.
He just demands I am cooking today, and he is not replacing her.

I knew she was quitting but had promised the person who told me that I would not say anything. I was prepared to cook today assuming she just wouldn't show up like two weeks ago.

What to do? Tell the owner three days ago that I had heard she was quitting or keep the confidence of the person who had told me?

Today the owner figured out I knew in advance and asked me about it? I said I did hear rumours... then he was upset I didn't give him notice..


Well I cooked today on my day off...
was able to talk to the owner a little ... he seems a little more calmer..
But still there are issues!

When he came over last night .. he said I would be happy she quit... I was struggling with her.. she was stealing from camp ... I know it without a doubt but can't prove it. I told the owner several times but he didn't believe me.
It was also so stressful when I was off and to come back to work because she would use ingredients up in a day that I would use for several meals.
She was used to cooking for fancy high class clients... we are a camp with a much lower budget. She couldn't understand that or just outright defied my suggestions on what to use.
Either way.. I am so happy she is gone. However I need time off... How is this going to happen?

Well we see what the next few days bring about.

Yes, it's so quiet in the house. She's been my constant companion for the past 9 years. She followed me around the house. She had a couple of strokes so she's in a much better place now

Our 15 year old Precious crossed the rainbow bridge at 1:25am on July 1st. I was out of town when she passed. It sure is quiet and lonesome around the house without her.

Feeling grateful that I have a job, but very unhappy with the job. Welcome to the real world I guess.. for the most part for the last eight years I have enjoyed waking up and going into the kitchen and cooking those long hours and delicious foods.
This year it has been a chore, drama and just an unpleasant experience, and we are just beginning...

Oh well I'm off for the next three days...
to start off my weekend I went home and lit up the BBQ

The Four big waits
As I drive to Vancouver this morning I was thinking about some of the Big Waits I have waited...
Waiting for Christmas morning and Santa clause ...
Waiting for my first child to arrive and all the anxiety and joy as the doctor tells me all is well.
Waiting for the test results for Aids when I found out my ex wife had been having affairs before our separation / divorce
Waiting now for the test results of my cancer biopsy...

All is Well ... the test at this time show no signs of Cancer

Praise God

I finally feeling better. My vision in my eye that I got the shot in went from 20/80 before the shot to 20/30 at my appointment last week. I was thrilled no shot. I go back June 15th. Had to buy another car, ours died and couldn't be revived. Love all the photos Marty.

Ramona, hoping things improve soon.



So it's Saturday, not raining so far, and I'm off.

I'm torn between taking it easy and rest .. many steps were taken this last week... or push for a new record.
I officially start feeding 25 staff + Sunday supper.

Yesterday i began a series of 3 shots to my right eye for my wet macular degeneration. Feel horrible today. Migraine central here. The cold wind outside made my head throb even more. So my hopes for a nice walk were out. I barely have been able to stay out long enough for my dog to potty. I hate that the meds for my shot has headaches as a side effect because it means migraines for me

I hate rainy days. We've got rain and severe thunderstorms in the forecast through Friday. Hoping at some point I can get out and walk. I miss my walks on the beach in Florida and exploring trails down there with my brother. At times I felt lIke I was wandering around Jurassic Park, lol.

Yesterday I spent a second day at the hospital with my Aunt. She was admitted with her 3rd heart attack. This was the 2nd this year. She's 89. To add insult to injury she's also got shingles and possibly has pneumonia. So she's in isolation on the heart floor. She's mad and frustrated.
I tripped over my big toe and fell in my bedroom. Fortunately I was close to my bed so I had a soft landing. My foot, back and head throbbed for over an hour. I have a pinched nerve in my neck so if I have sudden movement I get throbbing pain. I'm fine otherwise.
We had thunderstorms again today. My yard is looking like a swamp. It won't have much time to dry out before the next round of thunderstorms roll through late Wednesday and Thursday.
Thursday is my appointment with the retina specialist about my eye. I will have one more text on it. Then probably start a series of shots every six weeks. Hopefully I won't need very many.
Hope y'all have a great week.

Over 20,000 steps done today and 75 Floors climb... hopefully this helps
And half an hour swim in the hotel pool


Road Trip - this was day Four... will catch up once we get home so many things we seen and so many pictures

So bad - very very bad !
We were out walking with the Dalhousie stopped to take some pictures and somehow began talking to a local. This person highly recommended to go to this bakery ... the magic words -- Noni always checks out bakeries. Most are terrible with only a few things.. this one was is the best one we have ever walked into so far. ( Noni loves to bake)























Well go ahead and scold me...

After the Provincial Park walk - we took the Dalhousie home and Noni and I went up the Sea to Sky Gondola. It will be our first time in two years. First time we ever bought a pass... this year the company changed passes from seasonal to annually. I'm also counting on more time off of camp this year. The promise of a relief cook for weekends... so I hope to use this pass much more.

















It's going to be awesome ones the clouds roll away

Haven't got my 10,000 steps in yet. Didn't get but 9741 yesterday and was just too stressed to do much. We had another round is thunderstorms last night. I got a dangerous thunderstorm alert because of the intense frequent lightning we were having. Fortunately the tornadoes that were spawned were a couple counties over instead if a few miles down the road. Tomorrow is wintery precipitation like snow and sleet. It may be mixed with rain. Hard freeze time so all the fruit trees will die out. Hopefully my flowers will survive. Have a good weekend

Activity: 6,999 steps (3.2 miles)

I could had stayed in bed today much longer, but No I had to take my car to the garage for service. I look out the window and my heart sank... it is still snowing and it's so gloomy.
Well no choice I must drop off the car, but I decide to walk home 3.2 miles instead of waiting for shuttle service.
We will decide later if I walk back to pick it up or take the free shuttle from the garage.
At least I try to see the beauty in this .. yet another snow day..

























Home... maybe I'll go have a nap..

My big mouth... yesterday I said I wanted to hike at Alice Lake.. so I had too..
Well early this morning I looked outside and said I have no excuses not to,go it looked as if it was going to be a sunny day.
I sure wasn't expecting what I found at the trail head. Also it begins to snow. The trails are sheer ice I'm Not prepared for that. I only have one hiking pole and no spikes on my hiking boots. I decide to forge ahead hoping the path will clear.. it does not. So instead of hiking the four lakes trail 6 k. I hike around Stump Lake 1.5 km and drive to another trail that is clear...
I go from winter to glorious spring in matters of a few minutes...

As I park the car I am blown away at the difference. The snow has stopped and everything is looking so green.. so off I go to get my steps...

March 4, 2017 (Today)
Activity: 11,497 steps (5.3 miles). I hope to out again later this afternoon









. Winter
Now a few minutes drive ...
. Spring











Now you see the difference..

Fingers crossed..
I woke up from a strange dream, I'm not all that into dream interpretations, but....
My dream... my younger mother was living in the house of her late parents who were alive in the house as well.... for some reason I was having a issues about what room I was to have with my late older brother.. I was involved in a breakup and was moving in, also quarreling over the use of the phone and limiting time talking to girlfriends. I wake up...
Laying in bed for a few moments I realize I don't need to rush to the washroom...
I go there anyways and all seems normal once more.. has the infection finally broken..
There seems to be no issues at this time..... fingers crossed. Today is the last day for the antibodies.... I am also just realizing I actually had a full night sleep too instead of the several wake ups...

Side note...
We were at the pool the other day, two younger female teenagers came in and for at least half an hour sat together at one end of the pool in tiny two peace bathing suits. The area they were in was getting wonderful sunlight streaming in through large windows. They used their cell phones taking pictures of each other posing .. I know things like this happen, I know often worse poses take place behind closed doors ... but these tiny two piece bathing suits were not concealing much. I wonder where those pictures would end up out their in cyberspace.
I talked to the life guard about this... she only said she saw them too and wished they would actually swim, there is no rule saying you can't take pictures and they were in a quiet part of the pool and were not taking pictures of anyone else, so nothing could be said or done....

Yesterday morning when I walked the Dalhousie to the park, in a backyard next to it I noted...
In the yard was three very young girls wearing pjs and housecoats - not sure if they had slippers on or not - certainly not dressed for outside on a cold morning. One was playing with a huge dog with a stick, one was just walking around, another was doing something in the mud.
What really caught my eye though was a very small boy wearing nothing - Nothing - but a sagging diaper who was in the garden picking up things. The temperature was if I remember correctly was -4 c It may had warmed up slightly by the time I walked Dalhousie but it still was cold I was wearing three layers and I was chilled.
Eventually a man came outside wearing a black housecoat talking on a phone. I just kept on walking in the park and the man stood in the door way talking on the phone not really paying attention to the kids ... that was how I left the park.... what in the world is wrong with people?

Thanks Marty, I really appreciate your stepping in and keeping the team going. Right now things are kind of crazy and with my eyes messing up - even more than I first realized - I'll be hit and miss until after I see the retina specialist on March 30th. I'm hoping that getting the shots in my right eye will do as well as they did for my left one when I had them 8 years ago.
I always enjoyed reading your posts and seeing all the beautiful photos you posted. I'll have to upload my photos to my laptop and post a few of my walks while I enjoyed the first couple weeks of this year. I joked about being in Jurassic Park on one of them.
Talk to y'all later.
Ramona

Wow, I'm so sorry for your Loss.
You are very special to me and I did miss you much.
I understand the eye issue- I had laser surgery on my right eye, Nothing changed in my vision, except the doctor said it prevented me from going blind.

When you are ready, you are the leader of our team and I look forward to your posts once more.

In a moment of extreme depression and confusion I deleted all my teams. At that time, I felt it was the best thing to do because I didn't have internet access except on my phone and couldn't give my teams any of my time and energy. I have been out of town since December 26, 2016. From December 31, 2016 I was in Florida on vacation until January 19th when my Dad fell and my youngest brother requested my help. I left Florida last Sunday. This past Tuesday as I was leaving my other brother's house in Tennessee, I received a phone call from my brother that our Dad had passed away. It was with a very heavy heart I returned home. Today is the first day that I have felt up to getting online and working on my spark anything. Since I'm home I now have internet and can use my laptop.
Thank you Marty for taking over the team. I'm sorry I didn't let anyone know what was going on. Things have just been difficult.
Yesterday I went to my retina specialist who confirmed that I have macular degeneration in both eyes now. My left eye is fairly stable and my vision in that eye hasn't changed. It's my "good" eye, the right one that has worsened. I had several tests yesterday and he's wanting to "watch" that eye until March 30th. At that time I will have more tests run. I will probably start, at that time, with a series of shots in my right eye. They really helped my vision in mt left eye so I'm hoping they'll do the trick again.
My vision isn't the best right now, so I probably will be hit and miss on visiting the team page. I've rejoined because I missed you all so much.
Take care

Fear of the scale is beginning to arise once more ... But I'm hopefully that scale cooperates. I went out to a farewell party last night that served chocolate cake ( my favourite) and home made ice cream.

Today I am not going outside to walk - too much snow and so far no snowploughs have cleared the walk ways nor the side streets and the day is half over. Also I'm catering a dinner party tonight... Noni is making a chocolate cake and homemade rosemary bread ... I am cooking a turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots and fresh cranberries. I also might serve frozen peas too

Tomorrow I promised to take my Mom out to Boston Pizza for lunch. I'm sure there is going to be negative consequences on the scale because of all this entertaining






Look at this snow pile, first time ever that I can remember on my balcony

Well the Dalhouise is at home all tucked in - warm and cozy.... I feel so bad leaving him there but he can not go with me on all my excursions. I did take him out first for a slip and slide around the block though.

Poor guy has been limping badly all week and just now beginning to walk normal again..

The first of January 2017 and I had spent most of the day on the couch.. I couldn't let the New Year start off with being a couch potato all day...
















Did I mention that it was cold and windy - very windy. It was 0c (32f) without the windchill factored in..

I had to turn around before I reached my destination as I don't have chains for my snow tires. Nevertheless we parked the car did a steady uphill hike to enjoy a walk In a wet snowing afternoon.

I watched the fires on the news.. so scary and anxious about the loss of life of all the wild things

Yesterday on the spur of the moment Noni and I and the Dalhouise went eagle watching and then for a day drive north...
























Then I came home and cooked supper

Hope things are going 'll with everyone. The fires in Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky mountains national park have been in my thoughts.

Start with small steps and momentum will build. Celebrate moving in the direction of increased happiness now! With a plan and persistence moving towards your goals all things are possible! Adopt an attitude of gratitude. Be thankful for everything you have. It may not be what you want be show you're thankful for it anyway.

Went out for a drive and found a place to do a little walkabout. We must come back here for a picnic -- it's beautiful



















Driving home it was nice to see





Those pictures might be good, but I'm really really BAD
. I we were hungry and had a craving...
Dalhouise enjoyed it too.. -- actually we received a free bag of popcorn chicken - Dalhouise loved those

No pond walk today, probably not tomorrow either as I need laser eye surgery in Vancouver.
It is very dark and gloomy with a slight sprinkle of rain here in Squamish today. It's a couch day.

Marty your walks look amazing! The food looks good too! Sorry your knees were giving you problems. My knees can't take the steps when I'm out and about. It nearly kills me to come in to my house - 5 steps. My hips and knees just aren't liking it especially now that the weather is finally fall like

Marty your walks are so wonderful looking. I sympathize about the knee pain as I have two bad knees. My dog is almost 15 so I go where she wants to walk which usually isn't far. Thankfully I walk a little by going to our city library a couple times a week. Sometimes I decide to take a walk by myself but it's just too boring and getting dangerous. Since there are no sidewalks except in one area of town, not where I walk, my dog and I walk on the streets. Unfortunately in the past week, we've had to get into the ditches to avoid being hit by speeding cars. So tired of that.
I leave for my brother's over Christmas weekend. Then we are in New Smyrna Beach, FL on December 31st. My brother's also going by himself over Thanksgiving for four days. I booked his trip for him this afternoon while he was calling me on break. I have to say I'm jealous! I know I shouldn't be but I simply can't wait.
Hope everyone has a great week.
