Enjoy your WARM January!

1. College son is helping me with a project of converting old family VHS tapes to DVD. We are also converting Ken's cassette tapes (the songs he wrote and sang) to CD.

2. My oldest grandson is turning 23 this week. I am sending him a CD we have converted from one of the tapes with him singing several songs as a young child with all of us. I don't think he even knows it exists so it will be a real surprise.

3. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch I made: Hummus on a whole wheat wrap rolled up with spring mix, cucumbers, tomatoes and carrots. On the side we had a really sweet golden delicious apple and a baked sweet potato. (The boys and I dug the sweet potatoes last fall and they are so good!)

These are from yesterday:

1. I saw a sports medicine doc at Vandy yesterday for some knee pain issues. It turns out it's an IT band problem that can be fixed with PT. No arthritis!

2. We had beautiful weather for driving to Nashville and the traffic wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

3. I had several appointments at Vandy yesterday and they were able to move everything closer together once I got there. We got done at least two hours earlier than expected.....so much nicer than the other way around!

Happy Thanksgiving!

1. I made Chai Rice pudding this morning. It made the house smell so spicy and festive and hit the spot on this cold day. (A gluten-free recipe)

2. Made a big pan of cornbread for tomorrow's aerobic class. Our instructor has been on vacation to her family home in Florida. She is bringing back fresh cane syrup from the farm for all of us to try. Need cornbread or biscuits to put it on. Love to heat up the kitchen baking on a cold day!

3. College son got the remaining water pipes insulated in the garage. It is supposed to get very cold tonight/ early morning.

The drive on the Trace sounds wonderful. I'm glad you enjoyed it so much.

1. I took my mom for her monthy eye doctor visit. She doesn't have to go back again for 8 weeks next time!

2. Jim is making gluten-free brownies right now. Yum!

3. I think the worst of the rain today is over with. It was pretty bad while taking Mom back to assisted living....but it's let up a lot now.

emoticon That is great news, Kay! A clean cancer checkup after 1 year! emoticon So happy and thankful about that!

1. I am happy I have the aerobic class I go to twice a week. It is so much fun and several friends have joined me. It is so nice to get together and encourage each other as we sweat. LOL I'll be going this morning.

2. We have another sunny day to enjoy. So happy I can run around and do errands without a jacket these days. I know it will change before the week is over, but TODAY I'll enjoy a little more Indian Summer.

3. I am happy that God has blessed us with so much good food! My refrigerator and freezers are so full I don't know if I can get anything else in them. And the pantry upstairs and downstairs is the same way. We have been so blessed with all the produce…much of it gifted to us. We can hardly eat it fast enough :-)

I have cannas blooming right now...they usually bloom around the 4th of July. I think the cool spring and summer made them really late this year.

1. I had a clean cancer checkup yesterday at Vanderbilt.

2. I actually got through 4 appointments ahead of schedule yesterday.

3. I got to spend some fun time with a SIL that like a sister to me in Nashville yesterday.

Thank you for the kind birthday wishes!

1. On the internet, I found the steps to a new line dance we are learning in our class so I can practice the steps at home.

2. We had delicious gluten-free waffles for breakfast.

3. We are going to Cookeville this afternoon to meet with some friends we haven't seen for several months.

1. Today is my birthday, I'm delighted to be alive and in good health.

2. This morning, I got to my first line-dancing class since coming back from vacation. I was surprised how well I remembered the steps after not doing it for over two months.

3. Jim gave me the sweetest card this morning....it was so heartfelt that it made me cry. I'm lucky to have him in my life.

1. Went to aerobics class this morning.

2. It's a little after 1:30pm and I'm already over 8,000 steps. Looks like I'll make it to 10,000 easily today.

3. We are having a friend over for dinner and cards tonight on his birthday. He just turned 72 and is in wonderful health. I hope to be that healthy at 72.

1. Went to aerobics class this morning and got an outdoor walk in afterwards with some friends.

2. Found some pasta I like at Krogers (on sale today for 49 cents). "Creamette 150" has 150 calories and 13 grams of fiber per serving.

3. Nice warm weather. Plan to plant some Malabar Spinach seeds which should come up in the spring.

3. Enjoying a nice evening at home. Plan to have a warm bubble bath and read some more of the Civil War novel.

1. We got to our first aerobics class since our vacation this morning. My legs are tired now!

2. We have our first ballroom dance class since last spring this afternoon. I'm planning on it being simple...and not too tiring on my legs.

3. I just started listening to the audiobook version of "Wild" from the R.E.A.D.S. library system. It's quite good.

1. Ken was a Civil War buff. I am reading one of his books "The Killer Angels". (Over 2 1/2 million copies) It is very interesting historical novel about the Gettysburg battle.

2. I tweaked a squash dressing recipe that I will be sharing at our next HELP meeting. The boys enjoyed it for supper tonight.

3. The aerobics class was fun this morning.

1. I got my haircut this morning. I had gotten it cut super short before vacation, so I didn't really need much taken off this time. It's just nice getting it shaped up.

2. It's not supposed to rain today.

3. I've gotten some of my houseplants in for the winter. Still have tons of things to do to get the flowerbeds ready for winter.

1. I got a temporary crown replaced with a permanent one this morning. They were supposed to do it the day I left for vacation, but it didn't fit right and they had to remake it.

2. My old temporary crown never fell off the whole time I was on vacation. (They sent me off with some glue if it did...glad I never had to use it.)

3. They were able to start working on a tooth that broke while I was on vacation...I'm sporting a brand new temporary crown on that tooth now!

1. Went to Amish farm this morning to get 2 boxes of beautiful Golden Delicious apples. They had extra Galas, so I got 1/2 box of them. Going to make applesauce and save some back for eating.

2. Enjoying a rainy afternoon indoors.

3. The big pot of yellow mums on the porch I bought 2 weeks ago are still brilliant. They were a great buy at $10!

1. We are having sweater weather. It was 66 this morning when I left the house at 7:30. Enjoyed a nice morning outside, got in a good walk with a friend, and later had lunch on The Square.

2. Had a good report from routine dental exam/ cleaning today. (I have inherited my Dad's cavity-free teeth) Some of my kids have never had a cavity in their life. I've only had 2, both when I was a kid.

3. I was gifted with a bucket of organic muscadines and scuppernongs today. The first I've had this summer. They are one of my favorite things about August!

Kay, glad you are enjoying time with your 2 sons in Illinois!

Even though I'm a nurse I was not familiar with skin mets, so just looked it up. Yes, so glad you don't have it and wonderful you have an on call dermatologist!

1. Went to aerobics class this morning. A photographer was there for a feature in this week's paper. (Great incentive for good form! LOL)

2. College son is at school orientation in Murfreesboro (MTSU) this evening. This is his senior year. He begins student teaching 3rd grade in Spring Hill next week.

3. I made waffles for breakfast. First time since we moved here in May. They were delicious with cashew butter and maple syrup :-)

1. I had breakfast with my best friend this morning and lunch with one of my brothers that I hardly ever get to see. It was great spending time with both of them.

2. We went to Costco and picked up some things we needed for our trip. We found a cooler that I think will work perfectly.

3. I went to the dermatogist this morning because I've been dealing with intense itching. She prescribed some medications for it and told me to call her if I continue to have problems while we are travelling. I'm glad to know that I have someone I can call if this keeps up. She said for sure that it's not skin mets. I was concerned that it might be. Whoo Hooo that it's not!!!!
