Hi Janice, yes it 'sounds' bad but there people in the group I belong to with much less lung function than me & I am still quite mobile compared to many others. I was just a bit shocked when hit by the truth of it but at the same time I don't think it was a huge surprise because I felt like things were getting a little tougher to get done. But while I can still get around & look after my Boys I will. at least there is no sigh of needing oxygen (if ever) for a long long time

hello from a chilly Bendigo.. sending blessings for a wonderful Wednesday. I hope your sleep last night was as good as mine, if not then I wish a restful day with a nana nap.

Miller did you get your hair cut?? I bet it feels great. I am getting mine done today so it feels tidy for my visit to my Boys place.

Janice so glad you had fun shopping.

Sparkling aren't those cool changes awesome after a long spell of heat?

yesterday I went to my Dr to let him know I started the Pred. Dr happy with my handling of flare up. lungs are almost clear with no sign of infection.
He did drop a bit of a bombshell on me though when he clarified the level of the COPD & my lung function. WHOA - 50 % lung function & my level of copd is moderately severe. I had been thinking the percentage was 72% but I had it all twisted (as usual). so happy days & moving on.

emoticon Hello to everyone!!


SHARYN, I'm sorry you had to walk so far in the heat at the airport. Glad you got some rest.
emoticon PS - you can count all that walking on the Fitness Tracker!!


JANICE, hope your shopping went well today and you found some good buys!
emoticon


I ran errands today - had a car key duplicate made and dropped off a package - shopped at Target for a few things - then Katie and I ate at Chili's. I had a grilled chicken salad and unsweetened tea - only 440 calories including the honey-lime vinaigrette.

Looking forward to my haircut tomorrow. Will get it cut so it's just long enough for a tiny ponytail (I like to be able to pull it back out of my face).
emoticon

Hope everyone has a good evening and happy day tomorrow. emoticon emoticon

wow Sparkling I LOVE your pool. Is it heated ? not that you would need it right now though.

hello Miller, Maren, Kathryn, Janice (In) and everyone else who pops in.

Janice so glad you the aircon installed & can sleep in comfort now.

My sister drove me to the airport & had an easy drive there. the loooong walk to the gate really knocked the stuffing out of me & just I finally got there Mum was sitting in the people carrier to take her to a wheel chair, which then they were going to take her to the luggage collection. I was a surprised & miffed when I found out she knew this was going to happen & didn't let me know. so I turned around & struggled back as there was no room on the people carrier for me & my walker. once out in the cool & I was able to talk I told that she do it that way all the time as walking that distance in the over heated areas like the airport is too much for me now. Anyway by the time I had cooled off more in the car all was well. I came home bought some dinner & went to bed AND had a great sleep

Hi! Everyone! THX for your comments on our back yard. It IS paradise! Pool about 86 degrees, right now, hopefully it will cool down tonight, so we can go in it! I swim everyday, but the heat is awful!

I try for a minimum of 200 fitness points a day, including shopping, household etc.
I'm off to workland! It will be 108 today, down 10 degrees, YEAH!!!!! Feels like spring, no kidding, when it is over 110 it can be a REAL challenge. I get ALLOT done at sunrise & work through the morning. Afternoons are for resting & inside things.

Can't wait for our trip to down under!!!!

Early morning for me, got up at 5 am. I have already written a blog. I am trying to get back into the swing of being a positive blogger. I have gotten down the habit of posting a positive quote when I get on Spark now I want to get into the habit again of posting positive blogs at least 3 times a week. I want to get my streak going again.

I have plans for today. Our caretaker-M is coming today, not her usual day, but am happy she is coming. I am heading off to an other town to a big thrift store. A friend who owed me money paid it and I have a little extra to enjoy. I love thrift shopping. The last time I went I found a matching small white shelf with pink roses. One is holding my smallest turtles the other has small animals. I have both shelves in my office niche in the bedroom.

Positive quote-Your body will not change if you don't learn to build a strong mind

Cooler day today said to be 96 today but hubby says with all this delta breeze it might not even get that hot. The back bedroom is cool enough to be in with only the ceiling fan on. I am doing a 500 calorie fast day today and feeling fine. I took a short 15 mnute walk today. Tomorrow we will have our caretaker-M so I will take off and run the streets shopping. A friend gave me the $20 he owed me so now I have a little extra money for shopping. I may go to the 99 cent store and a few thrift stores that are open on Sunday.

Sharyn so sorry to hear you were not feeling well, good to hear the Nebulizer helped.

Miller hope you were able to do and good work out and your knee is bending better.

welcome to Sunday.

by last night the shortness of breath (sob) was so bad I had to rest from just putting some clothes away into my wardrobe, so I dug out the Nebulizer but I slept in this morning which is amazing and I feel so good for it. breathing clear, not sob or coughing. guess who is staying on the Neb for a few days until I can get to Dr on Tuesday. of course if things go belly up I will go across to hospital.
wishing you a peaceful day

Miller praying that the PT will leave you with plenty of strength in the knee to get through the surgery.

Sparkling I have missed a walk or 2 from sleeping past sunrise & my fur darlings objected strongly emoticon I hope Lucy wasn't too vocal at missing her walk.

Kathryn great that you have the exercise bike set up. hopefully Hubbys legs will strengthen from using it.

I am resting up today as I will be going to the airport to get Mum as she returns from Queensland. I'll give Shorty his walk then that will be about all I will do for the day.

SPARKLING, that is a beautiful photo you took - very impressive.

KATHRYN, I'm glad you have your exercise bike set up. Sounds like you have a good eating plan in place.


It's a beautiful sunny day here in NC. Will reach 91 degrees. I plan to spend the afternoon doing my physical therapy, then relaxing a bit.

Hope everyone has a happy day. emoticon

YEAH IT'S FRIDAY!!!!!

We have the exercise bike all set up. I used it this morning and see that the seat is set to high for me. Hubby is the one that will be using it most as I can get out and take a walk for my exercise. With the heat I go in the mornings.
Have not been doing good on my eating program. Today starts the beginning of week three in my diet journal. My weight is up 1.3 pounds. I gave myself a stern talking to and am getting on program. I do better when I plan and am doing that. I am also doing two fasting days a week and one cheat meal. I really want to take off at least 10 pounds before the end of the year.

Got my hair cut today. It was starting to hang over my ears.

Also, want to Trivia tonight. The women's team came in 3rd. The men's team came in second. What was important was that we had FUN!! We laughed and just had fun. It was nice to come in the standings.

Before you all head for Australia, come visit me in Milwaukee, WI,Everything is free except for 1 or 2 concerts each evening. for the world's largest music festival. It is called Summerfest and will be held June 28th to July 2nd and continued July 4th to July 9th. There are 11 stages, including a children's theater, and most will have entertainment - all at the same time times. General admission for a day and evening is $13 ($8 for seniors). The grounds, next to Lake Michigan, are beautiful. In late spring, school children plant thousands and thousands of flowers.

Some of the entertainment this year will be Red Hot Chili Peppers, Deerhoof, Jack Irons, Luke Bryan, Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers, Sheryl Crow and Bob Dylan, Osborn Brothers, Paul Simon, Brandi Carlile, the Moody Blues and hundreds more. If you bring your sleeping bags, I can fit about 20 of you in my living room. When the music ends we can PARTY the rest of the night. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thnx for checking in with me, from time to time. It's been a busy & stressful month, but, things are going pretty well overall. Just have some big diet changes & moving again soon. Just making improvements, but, even good changes have some stress involved.

Janice glad to hear you lunch went well. I bet you will miss Archie (&he you).

Kathryn I couldn't sleep without my aircon. I have that AND a fan going as well.

My sister & her hubby had to bring their car down for a servicing so we went to the pub on the corner again. today I had a superb lasagna and because none of their deserts were egg free, I had a REALLY nice hot chocolate.

Hello all. hot hot day in the mid 100's, AC running 24 hours now. It is in the living room wall so can not be moved to my room. My bed is under the windows in the bedroom. This bedroom was remodeled before we moved in and the bathroom off the back side of the room was moved and made bigger on the other side. They left the small bath room window and if I can find an AC unit that can fit there will buy in the fall when costs go down.

The VA is picking up some of the equipment we don't need and I will have room for an exercise bike in the dinette area of the kitchen. I bought the bike at the thrift store today and will pick it up tomorrow after the VA people leave.

The storage room/walk in closet off the living room was flooded again. It is flooded when the outside faucet is messed with and left spraying in the wall or left on making a big flooded garden. I called and talked to the land lady about it. The guy doing the yard work now waters at 11:30 at night and can not see when he has left it on. Hubby and the LL talked to him and now he is watering in the morning. I am also checking before going to bed and the morning. The old gardener is taking over again next month and I won't have to double check him. I lost four throw pillows to this last flood. On the positive side have wanted to get rid of those pillows for some time now. LOL

Positive quote-Sometime the people around you won't understand your journey, they don't need to it's not for them.

emoticon 6-20-17 Today is breaking a heat record for the first time EVER recorded! 118. I was asked how I live here. I get up at sunrise & walk LUCY pup; water outside plants that need a boost from drip system; gather trash or whatever before the garage heats up; swim before the sun hits the pool, it was 87 degrees in it this morning, (The water is the temp. that it is at night) & drink lot's of water & electrolytes & eat ALLOT of fresh veggies & fruits. Keeping the concentrated foods to a minimum. Then do errands, etc. all before noon. emoticon Save the computer work, reading & indoor activities till afternoon. How are YOU dealing with the weather, this last day of Spring? emoticon

Hello TEAM!!

Miller.... emoticon for complimenting picture...I did enjoy lunch with my BFF, we went to a restaurant called Two Jays...I had an open face turkey sandwich and brought half home. The only thing was it did rain!!! emoticon used to get to car!! So emoticon to hear about your sister's dog. We had a poodle (Cocoa) for close to 10 yrs and he also went blind. I remember my mom and I had to go and have him put to sleep. Was a very sad day. As long as her dog is still healthy and not a problem for her she should of course keep him around till maybe he is ready to pass away. Also funny how her pets sit to wait for some food scraps before dinner!!

Sharyn........LOVED the pictures of the Botanical Gardens you walks through. And Shorty looks adorable in that sweater!!! Guess who we will have tomorrow.......ARCHIE!!! Yes, his mommy is going back to Panama City to her other house she is setting up. Lots of things she needs to move there. I know she is having problems here in Florida with her Condo ...late by 7 mths on payments and will probably lose it. So not to far away we will be losing our visits with her & Archie. emoticon

Sparkling......NICE you had a haircut and are enjoying it! Also emoticon to have the bet with the hair dresser on the 2 mths to lose weight!! I'm SURE you will win this!!!! emoticon

Maren......... emoticon for the 4th of July Info.....That is really incredible about the Presidents and birth/deaths on the 4th!!!!! emoticon

emoticon Kathryn.......How you doing? How's the hubby?? Mayo clinic diet going well?

emoticon Janice....... emoticon with you on all the single mom's who had to be both "Mom" & "Dad" bringing up their children. emoticon

emoticon Linsey........How are things going for you now???

Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL day!!!

Beautiful photos! THX!!!!

emoticon 6-19-17 Today I got a hair cut, emoticon I'm finding I like it shorter these days. First time in my life! My hair guy finally convinced me to go shorter. It feels SO healthy & that is my goal for ALL of me! emoticon It is 111 today, a littler cooler than yesterday. DH B' Day parties are over, we had fun emoticon emoticon , but time to REALLY focus on food choices emoticon . I made a bet with hair dresser, we have 2 months to lose weight. IF I win I get 2 months free hair cuts. If he wins I need to take him to dinner! (He likes VERY expensive restaurants!) I have 1 more month. He has lost 6# & I gained 4! YIKES! But I'm trying, & I'm working out again emoticon , so that will help, having 2.5 months off to heal knee, was hard for me to keep it together emoticon . "Be the health you want with what you have to work with, & I will too!" A quote by me, emoticon I'm off to it! emoticon

Hello to all.

JANICE, great job on all your exercise!! Great pic of you and your hubby!! *Hope you enjoy your lunch with your BFF!! (*I miss my father, too)
emoticon

SHARYN, I’ve never heard of one of those battery gizmo - that’s a good idea. I know I’ve always heard that cars run better when they’re run regularly. *It’s so funny to think of it being so cold there when we’re sweating here. Stay warm!! (*I don’t think we ever stop missing our Dads.)
emoticon

MAREN, what a nice Father’s Day quote! Thanks for sharing. emoticon

JANICE (IN), great idea to thank all the women who “stood in” for Dads - you and Sharyn and others - you're all worth more than gold!!
emoticon

SPARKLING, great photo you took on your hike!!
emoticon


I’ve spent a large part of the day on the phone with my sisters. It was good to talk to them both. My middle sister is still recovering from her foot and ankle surgery, but is now able to walk a bit with crutches - I'm so glad!

Sadly, one of my eldest sister’s dogs has gone blind and he (and she) are having a rough time of it. He keeps bumping into things, and she has to carry him up and down the steps to get to the yard, which she says is difficult. Plus, he has accidents all over the floor and carpet. I asked her if she’d thought of having him put down. She said she did think of it, but then decided not to. She said he’s a little better than he was at first.

She had me laughing during part of the conversation - she said every afternoon at 3:30, both dogs and the cat all stand in front of her and bark and meow so she’ll get started cooking supper (she always gives them a bit of what she cooks, in addition to their pet food). That was so funny to me! They are a little bit spoiled, I’d say! LOL!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon

I hope everyone has a great week!!! emoticon

my Dad has been gone for nearly 30 years now & I miss him too - he would have been pushing 102 by now.

Janice (In) you took the words out of my mouth in wishing all the 'lady' dads a happy fathers day. I was one of them & it was tough going so we need all the encouragement we can get.

here is your hug for today ......

WOW Janice that is a great effort with your steps emoticon

Our car battery came home fully charged yesterday afternoon so I took Shorty out to the dog park. Today I will give it run to the next town which is 30 mins away. the mechanic said it needs to do 200 kms (about 124 miles) per week to stay fully charged BUT there is no way I am doing that much driving so the next week I'll buy a trickle charger. that is a gizmo I attach to the battery when the car isn't in use & it keeps the battery charged.

the morning is VERY cold here today so I'll be staying snugged up in the front of the heater for a while yet.

GOD GIVE ME JOY -

God give me joy in the tasks that press,
In the memories that burn and bless:

In the thoughts that life has love to spend,
In the faith that God's at journey's end.

God give me hope in each day that springs,
God give me joy in the common things!

emoticon emoticon to Sparkling's Hubby. may his day be super bright filled with fun emoticon

Kathryn such great news about your hubby being able to get down the front steps emoticon

emoticon Maren

Janice (In) was your trip as much fun as I suspect? emoticon my Boys love grandma time too emoticon

Janice did you get to the concert & go dancing? emoticon what type of dancing do you & Lee do??

wow Miller pay per year sounds a good idea if one were to use it all the time. we don't have that option. It is fantastic you can get them delivered if need be.

Sparkling your hubby looks lovely emoticon I hope he had an awesome day.

well I hope to get my car back on the road today & when I do I'll go for a drive to the next town which is 1/2 hour away. My mechanic said a run like that every now & then will be good for it.

have an awesome day & a relaxed weekend

emoticon Hello to all!!!

SPARKLING, it certainly would be great if you won the lottery. A SparkPeople cruise sounds awesome!!!
emoticon emoticon

SHARYN, my local grocery store will gather grocery orders together and then customers can pick them up or have them delivered. I often use the pick-up option and won’t hesitate to use the delivery option should I ever need it. It really helps when my knee is hurting badly and I have trouble getting around the store. I used to pay per order, but then decided to pay a year in advance because it was cheaper (per order) that way.
emoticon emoticon

JANICE, I haven’t seen “The Son” on Netflix, but will definitely look for it. I hope you continue to like Bloodline. To be honest, I was a little bit disappointed with the final season and the way it ended, but since they only had funding for three seasons, I guess they had to scramble to tie it all up in a hurry. I still enjoyed it, though. I love anything with Kyle Chandler - he did a TV series called Friday Night Lights that I loved, even though I’m not really into football. *Enjoy the concert and dancing!!!
emoticon emoticon

KATHRYN, it sounds like your DH is doing very well, especially since he can go outside now - that is great!!! I’m glad you like your new tracker. Congrats on winning the gift cards!! *Regarding the “Peeping Tom” - be on guard even if he seems nice. Some peeping toms may be harmless, but some “peep” and then escalate to more serious crimes. That happened in our area a number of years ago and it was tragic.
emoticon

MAREN, thanks for sharing, “God Give Me Joy.” That is lovely. emoticon

JANICE (IN), that’s very sweet about the “Layknn & Grandma time!” emoticon



I hope everyone has a good weekend!!! Happy Father’s Day to any and all father’s!!! emoticon

Miller emoticon

100 plus days for the next 7 days, hard to sleep with no AC. We have just a small unit in hubby's room. He gets to cold so we don't run it at night. We can't leave the windows open because of the peeping tom who lives in our building. Except for the peeping he really is a nice man. In my church teaching we were taught to love the person and forgive their sin, no one is perfect.

I took Layknn to Target and bought her stuff to make slime. Driving home, she called it Layknn & Grandma time. She loves it when I take her to the pool. She must be part fish the way she spends all that time in the pool. LOL

Good morning my dear friends
All is well at my home. Hubby is able now to walk up and down the front steps so can go out any time he wants. I have been keeping up with my walking. I love my new tracker. It is just a simple one from Walmart but it works for what I want. Am staying on the Mayo diet but have to tweak it to fit me better.. It said no sugar for the first two weeks but restricting sugar just led me to a sweets binge. After one week weight staying about the same. Have been enjoying the fresh fruit of the season. Won two gift cards for a total of $50 to my supermarket also one for $20 to Walmart from my Diabetic class. Used one at the super market for some fresh fruit .I had an appointment with my nutrition coach today and talked to him about taking supplements. I am taking fish oil and a multi vitamin now.

((hugs))
