Hi Reedster. Lovely day here - 75 degrees and sunny. Bask and savor.
I was missing my mother bigtime. This will be the 3rd MD without her.
Last night was the party for Trevor. It was in an extremely noisy and dark restaurant. I was hoping to have a nice visit with my sister from up north but we were shouting across the table. The food, however, was excellent. I had bbq chicken and unbelieveable au gratin potatoes. Heavenly.

Here is a picture of my sister Jane and her daughter Esther. Jane adopted Esther as a single parent. Then Trevor and me. See how tall he is. Trevor's mom, Joan, was behind the camera. She and Jane are fraternal twins, 6 years younger than me.

And, this is what Trevor chose for dessert. Fortunately, his mom and I were on either side of him, with big spoons...

Thank U Reed. No brit hasn't had the baby yet but she got some Mother's Day wishes on her FB page today. She's having a boy the Sonagram (or something like that) has already told her the sex of the baby She is going to name him Bryce when he gets here. The Car lets not talk about it after working on the brakes all morning now looks like we still got more to do something about the fule line I think I picked out a bad car. Oh well.................. Did u guys get some rain today?? We did all day. We went to my g-mothers today for Mother's Day & Deceration Day too. It was Deceration day where my mom is burried and my g-mother lives less than a mile from the graveyard so we can kinda do both things at onetime. It's also decoration Day where my hubby's mom is burried so we take about 2 hours to go to her grave and see my hubbys only aunt alive. BUSY DAY for us!

Thanks for the welcome! It's nice to see such a great, supportive group. And dare I say Go Gators? Either way, we are all in this together.

Hi Reed- I plan to spend a quiet day today, probably out side because it is just beautiful. Sunny and warm ( low 80's ). Jim planted some flowers on Friday and Friday night the deer helped themselves to a feast of the new plants. I guess they have to eat too. Glad Russ is better, you need some time off from worry about him. Tomorrow I am going to a chair yoga class for the first time. It is at a local hosp. in their health and fitness dept. Hope I like it . Take care at the gator house. Cat

Hello Mr Gator. I just got back from Mass. I said prayers for all in the Gator house and lit a votive for all under St. Joseph too. I think I will go to the cemetery today and say hi to mom.
Yesterday I worked at the Lions hot dog booth all day. Beautiful weather. There was a car show and we sold 320 hot dogs at 3 bucks apeice so we made a pretty good profit.

Wake up BG a little low @ 71 this morning

Hello Reed, Been busy all week. Work & PT keep me hopping. Still have some stomach issues. I guess it just takes time. Weather here today is perfect. 78 and a light breeze. Have Samantha for the weekend as Kevin & Jen had a wedding to go to. Will take her home tomorrow.Had dinner with my Mom tonight. Pete working a night shift weekend for QA inspections but sent me flowers. Brian leaving in the morning to give a presentation in San Diego for several days this week.He sent flowers too. Will see Kevin when we take Samantha back.My BS has been great. Can't complain about that. Just wish my stomach would cooperate. See the Dr 0n 5/23 for a post op check, so we'll see what he says. See the Foot Dr 5/30 when I'm done with PT. Hope you enjoy Tom being there. I think you need that help. Hope Russ is better and glad you are well. Will say a prayer for all of you tomorrow at church. Take care <3 <3 Joanne

I'm glad Russ is doing better now. We lived through it but right after we left town for 2 days. Read my blog for how it went both days! We got 1 more week of pt then hopefully it will be over. I'll give them credit I can reach my head now but there was alot of suffering (on my part) to get there!LOL!

hi reed, so very glad the news about Russ. Branchville is very small, in fact our entire county is small, we do not have any interstates going through, and we recently got our first Starbuck's. wow, it sure warmed up today into the 80s. we are taking care of Ed's brother's cat. They are going on another European vacation. last time was Paris, this time Tuscany. bg 106, no wonder I got my energy back. also going to quilts of valor makes me feel gpood, I got a lot done today

At 4:00am on May 12, 2012, Marie B said…

hi reed, keep up the prayers. I'm going to my other quilts of valor group, the one that meets down the street at the fairgrounds. we had a good time at the chat and concert yesterday, it was a 20 yr old gal playing the guitar and singing. she has type1. Sparky and Linda and I were doing a lot of the chatting. had another low at 4 AM last night, didn't think I would as I was 170 at bedtime, but walking around the lake sometimes makes a delayed low. so I couldn't really go back to sleep, cold here.

Hi Reed. I am o mad I forgot about the chat this afternoon. I must be losing it.
I made some wonderful guacamole because avocado were on sale. But I ate too many chips and paid the price with a bg o 270. Felt awful and now I took a correction and will have to set my alarm for 2 hours to be sure I'm not going hypo. It's hard to deal with these situations when you live alone.
Tonight I watched a show on PBS about Liberace. Boy did he like to spend money. Some of his costumes had real diamonds on the buttons.
Glad to hear good news about Russ. May it continue.
Send me some of Tom's lumberjack breakfast......

Hi Reed! today's Mother's Day Luncheon done...what a blur! There was so much food left over that we were asked to take some home!
I'm so so tired, that I've decided to not go to the retreat tomorrow.
Besides....I've got a lot to do here!
Reed....I'm SO pleased to hear the good news about Russ! Must be a big drop in stress on Reed Ranch! Your birthday wish sounds like fun Reed....wish I were there to help you celebrate! It's lovely here today, it's 80 with a nice little breeze :) Hope it's the same for Mother's Day.
Are you going to the chat in the Main Room? Think I'll stop by for a bit, then go for a wee nap!

At 11:02am on May 11, 2012, Marie B said…

Reed, please try to make the chat & concert this afternoon, going for my walk now so I don't miss it!

Hi Mr Gator. I am glad Russ came out better with the Dr. I will keep praying for all in the Gator house though.

Had coffee with our group this morning.

Tomorrow I am going to the Holy Name Society, We will pray the Rosary and then have mass and fellowship and talk about projects for summer at the parish. They are always looking for fresh bodies LOL

As I get more active in the parish I am getting to know more people.

Wake up was 73 this morning. I am taking more metformin though too and adjusting,

hello Reed, yes, wonderful to hear about Russ. I just visited my friend in the rehab yesterday and they have moved her to a very depressing room. I brought her some spice cookies and bread I'd made. I'd been there about an hour, and another delightful friend from the guild showed up, so it was great. maybe I'll see if we can coordinate so she gets more visitors. anyway, I am thinking I should go visit my mother, it's a 6 hour drive, but on the way back I would dearly love to attend the TuDiabetes meetup in Philly on June 10. besides Manny (always a BIG treat to get a hug from him!) I see EMILY is going to be there! I'd love to meet her. also I think Donna is organizing it, and we could perhaps get catlover and Joanne and maybe even jrtpup (lives in DE) and a bunch of other folks to come. I am stepping up the prayers for ED. I was listening to a show yesterday about the effects of prayer, and they said to pray for specific things. I am not sure when his unemployment runs out. every now and then I make myself sick and crazy about it. today is a beautiful day, my seedlings are happy, and I'm going to get my demonstration for the quilt show together, I'm doing a machine applique technique, and I need my samples ready to go. it's fun, and I got really good at it while making the "Word in your Hand" quilt last year. bg 210 but I needed to change my set, sometimes they go from good to bad rather quickly. oh I would LOVE to go to Bette's with you on Tuesday. I found the most perfect birthday card for you and I just sent it off.

Hi Reed- Glad Russ doesn't need hip surgery. I had it 5 years ago and I am a little younger than Russ. The sun should be out today after several days of drizzle and rain. Can't believe the MRI will cost all that $$$$. I had 1 in Dec. and it only cost me $ 75.00. Ins. is a rip off and if you don't have it, it is worse. There have been a lot of mew members to welcome this week, and most of them are new D's. I guess the epidemic is really growing. Hope you have a good weekend. Cat
