Maybe it's just in need of a new heating element..Like I know,ha ! No need to fret though-Tom is going to make sure you have a stove in good working order for Reeds Diner :) I had a somewhat quiet day-so got to play on the computer and laugh at Doris.I still follow the Alaskan pioneer and when he first left to his Island.he took a dog named Wilson and a goat named Thor..well,you know that was a draw for me to follow..well some time passed and we all kept asking..where was Thor..and no direct answer...then in his video he post he said it..Gator he ate poor Thor !! He said he was brought as a food source and he and Wilson ate him-had a darn babque ..and ate poor Thor..seems he was a little dense but still :( No the Alaskan Pioneer has been fun to follow -good guy :) .
Reed just found out a lady from our meetup group has had the same symptoms as I have for 6 weeks. Over the weekend she turned ghastly pale and weak and had to be rushed to the ER. I think I've had a relapse. It's so hard to know whether to spend the day lying around and resting or to try to get up and do some light tasks. I don't know if I'm going to wait until Monday to see my PCP. We'll see how I feel tomorrow. Once good thing - I am sleeping like A LOG.
Hello Reed, Glad to hear you are well. Been really busy here. Just hoping things get better. So glad your knees are good. I have an appt tomorrow. We'll see what happens.
Take care <3 <3 Joanne *** sent you a message too
hi Reed, it's been snowing all day. it's very pretty actually. I stayed home and then they cancelled the guild. hope nobody actually went there today, it would be a lesson to check your emails always before going. I'm making some oatmeal bread, and later I'm going to make bean soup with a ham bone. bg 275 that was an hour ago, when I changed my infusion set and gave myself a giant bolus. Lady from Roche, actually a CDE, is coming over tomorrow afternoon to train me on mt new pump. yes whip the TOPS ladies into shape.
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.
