Just curious: what was the reason for yesterday's bank holiday? Here in the US we had "Memorial Day" to commemorate military deaths in battle. (I'm also curious as to why they are "bank holidays" in UK as opposed to "legal holidays" in the US -- are only the banks allowed/supposed to be closed? (Thirty years ago, you couldn't even find a corner convenience store open on US legal holidays. Nowadays, it seems like banks and office buildings are the only things that are closed, and the stores are open with huge sales.)

Hello, I have the time to answer now!!!!!! I switched my insulin and it was a difficult task. So do you want to add a photo on your profile? When I changed it I go to the right top of my page and I click on settings and I just followed. you know I'm not a pro of computer but if it can help you that's how I did. I hope you're well. Have a great day Hana.
I am just checking in to say hi and ask how you are doing? I hope things are,leveling out for you and the worry is easing up a bit.
We have cooler weather now and hopefully have snow in our future before long. Right now it looks like rain is moving in.for this week. I will love it. That will save me from having to go out to water some of my plants I think the neighbors watch me a little suspiciosly when it is this cold and I am outside watering. I have a bunch of Azalea bushes that have a tendency to die out during cold weather when they dry out too much. I had used these large soda bottles filled with water or plant food to feed and water my bushes in the cooler weather. There is a plastic stake you can screw on the end of the bottle and just turn it over asnd stick it in the ground. by the bush. One day when i had several out there a little neighbor boy came over and pulled them all up. I asked him what he was doing asnd he tokld me he was helping me. He said someone had left trash in my yard around my bushes and he cleaned it up for me. I has ro smile and thank him. He was such a small little fellow and it was so sweet. I never did tell him it was wrong. I just try to hide the bottles better now. He sure did make me smile though.
I hope you are doing well. I am with you and thinking of you.
Blessings be to you.
