Evening Reed....thanks for the birthday wishes....I think I'm likely to be on tomorrow's list due to where my name is alphabetically. I'll send you a pm with my email address. I'm signing off, as I'm feeling pretty cruddy...coming down with something, but hope against all odds that I'll feel better tomorrow...as tomorrow is the French Club at school...and I need to be there....anyway...good night...hugs, linda
Thanks so much for the b'day wishes. I thought that rveryone around me (including my family) forgot. BUT ... leave it up to my TUd friends to share their wishes.
I've been doing OK. I just published another blog (about the Merry-G0-Round life) amd plan on following up on that in a few (weeks or days?) if I can motivate myself). One day last week I spent 3-4 hours on Part 2 and then blew it trying to get it back to the screen to tell it to publish! It's somewhere in cyber-space. Darn!!!
Good morning Reed. It's cyber Monday, when people buy the most things online. I have to buckle down and try to get some cleaning done. Things sort of went kapoot when I was sick. As Paul said, cold here. I need to go downtown this week but am waiting for it to warm
Our Hollidazzle Parade started this weekend. It is quite spectacular with lighted floats and such most from big corporations. They have warming aread where you pay $9 and watch it from the heated space and get a free c
up of cocoa. One year we took my mother and she talked about it for weeks.
Also a big ploy to get people to shop downtown rather than the malls. So much fuss.
I can't believe how many people online have this coughing bug - seems like it's spread across the country. I think I should get some hand sanitizer and carry it with me.
I hope you have a good week ahead and that your knees are better.
Hi Mr Gator. Working on my bible study this morning. I have class tonight at the parish.
Very cold here this morning but next week will warm up. Wakeup this morning was 77 and i felt kinda crummy. I am going low again. I go through spells where I get hypo glycemic I guess and produce to much insulin.
I prayed for you and Russ this morning and hope you have a good day.
oh reed that is frustrating about the computer. try again if you feel like it, or add a blog. we went out last night with ed's brother and his wife. doug got ed a chainsaw for his birthday, which was very nice. now ed won't have to borrow his when we need one. it's pretty cold here, I haven't been out all day. still coughing. but I'm a little better. we are taking care of doug's cat, billie. he loves it here and is very well behaved. what a picture of kathy's spoon. lucky she didnt do any thing worse.
hello Reed, thanksgiving was great, and easy, this year I was only cooking for 5. glad to hear your knees don't require surgery but I hope your pain is getting better. too bad about cortisone - makes my sensitivity go to almost zero. I can compensate with insulin though, but it's always bad. cheers! Joe
Hi Reed. I think, knock wood, that I have turned a corner. Had more energy today but still took it easy. Cough nearly gone. PTL. I had a very close call this afternoon. Was making stir fry with a wooden spatula. Phone rang, so I turned down the flame, set the spatula next to the pan. 5 minutes later my smoke alarm went off and the spatula was smoldering, but not on fire. I sort of panicked and smothered everything with a bath towel.
Well, all okay. And the stir fry was delicious - broccoli, green beans, baby corn water chestnuts and a few shrimp. No soy sauce - too much salt for me to handle.
Just got done watching the week's rerun of Antiques Roadshow. This lady said she had a bracelet that was worn by Marie Antionette. Not so. LOL.
Hope you have a good Sunday and are still enjoying the leftovers.
glad your bg down. I must have pulled a muscle in my abdomen from the coughing. it really hurts. if I'm not significantly better by Monday, I'll call the doctor. I actually slept until 730, very rare for me. of course I was up multiple times during the night. haha actually getting some flurries here at the moment. It's going to get very cold today and tonight. I don't do malls either. I actually don't do Christmas gifts actually except for homemade ones like bread and cookies.
Hi Reed, has your BG come down yet? I guess there's a price to pay for everything. My neighborhood got 3 inches of snow and a extreme temperature drop overnight. I forced myself to get up and dressed at a reasonable hour and now seem to feel a bit better. My pink eye is not going away and the drops are very thick and gunky which makes my vision very blurred. Valerie, my pillow fluffing friend, stopped over with some raspberry bread pudding and strong black coffee so we watched the old Audrey Hepburn movie "Roman Holiday" and lounged around. certainly much better than goig to the mall. I hope you have a nice weekend and glad you enjoyed the lights.
Hi Reed- Your table looks beautiful for T-giving dinner. We ended up going to friends for a lovely meal. Of course I ate too much, but BG was back to normal this morning. Thanks for all of your messages of concern for Jim. He was put on Lovenox, it is an injectable anti-coagulant. The coumadin wasn't doing the trick. Maybe both together will work better. So now he knows what it is to take shots. Chico is a very cute kittie, and she looks at home on your rug. Did she get some turkey ? Hope you have a nice weekend, and stay away from the stores. Cat
Reed, thr table looks just beautiful, lovely flowers too. Glad you had a good dinner. hope your bg calms down soon. darn steroids. mine was 89 this morning. wondering if I can go another day without changing my infusion set. hope Tom can get to the gym soon, haha. I'm going to try for a walk today. I was going yesterday but then I got so fatigued. I can't shake this cough. it's been 2 weeks, just lingering on.
Oh Reed, I just love the pics. What a beautiful table with the trivets waiting for the food. and Chico checking things out - he must know something good is coming. What beautiful eyes. There are people camping in tents in front of Best Buy stores to get bargains at midnight. Some have been there for 3 days. What a bunch of phooey. I am staying home today and lounging - having tilapia, green beans with almonds, baked root vegetables drizzled in olive oil and pineapple sorbet. Won't eat until maybe 4.
My sister and niece ran this morning in the annual 5K Turkey Trot in downtown Minneapolis. It was a big turnout because of warm weather.
I give abundant thanks for TD and all of my friends. Blessings to all!!!
hi reed, your thanksgiving menu sounds great! what is in the Nova Scotia dressing? ed and I are going out by ourselves. mom is still in the hospital for a couple more days. at least she got the IV out. they want the swelling in her legs to go down. my nephew who lives there will visit her this afternoon.
that cat is really a cutie! nice picture, the colors on the rug really bring out his beauty.
