Hi Cat...Thank You for the kind message, All pre-op tests done today, everything looks good. All set for Monday 8am. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, I am ready to eat!! Love you and take care. xo
Hello there, My better half and son are making Thanksgiving dinner. They have already started and the house smells wonderful alreadly. I am basking in the glory of not being able to cook very well, because they do all the work and I get to enjoy it. Here it rained all day and right before dark the sun came out and everything cleared up. It was beautiful. It is chilly, so we will make a fire in the fired place and I will enjoy a super good meal tomorrow and probably some good stuff tonight too. I hope you have a great time at the resaurant. Happy Thanksgiving Eve and have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day tomorrow.
Hi, Catlover. I don't have my cat with me any more, as I live in an apartment which doesn't allow cats. She is at my mom's house, and I get to spend the whole day with her tomorrow. Yay! Have a very happy Thanksgiving!
Thanks Cat. It sounds like u & your husband will have some time together for Thanksgiving. U know eating out would beat the crap out of all the cooking for it. Got that going on today here. AND my 5 year g-duaghter thinks she's helping (hurting is more like it but atleast right now she's decided to take out all of the canned stuff out of the cabnets and put them in bowls.) I'm not going to tell her no again b/c when I do she says "Well u won't let me get close to the stove to help u cook" ERRRRRRRRRR! LOL!
Good Morning,Cat. My bones are acting. No wonder it is raining. Pie#1 Pumpkin done. Pie #2 Apple in the oven. Working on the stuffing whiich I make from scratch. Set the table using my Mother's double damask table cloth my good silver and my Mother's china which is a good 80 years old. My Mother's birthday was Nov 28 it often was on Thanksgiving. You staying home or eating out? Take good care. BG 112. A big hello to Jim. I am thankful I met you and you are my friend. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning Cat. How are you doing? My BG 115 but still aching. I either did too much OLD AGE or ARTHUR RITE IS. It will pass. Very humid here 95%. I have a big kload of laundry to do. Russ saw the heart doctor yesterday blood work excellent but the answer to every question he asked OLD AGE, Almost ready for Reed's Diner to open need to pick up the fresh turkey. I did the holidays for 38 years now just Russ Tom and me but I will do the same dinner only smaller portions. My best to Jim. The purple lights in one photo is on a horse drawn carriage. Take good care. I care, HUGS,Reed
HEY Catlove! Thank you so much for the birthday wishes! That meant a lot to me :) I had a nice birthday, my husband took me to dinner and bought me a nook book reader! We have been doing good, we started a new hobby ... we have a saltwater tank now. It's so much fun having this to do together. Our animals are so funny, they love this fall weather. It's so much fun to watch my dog and cat chase each other around the backyard :) How have you been doing? Anything new going on? Have a wonderful week hun!!! - A
Good Morning,Cat. I am pooped today. Yesterday was a long day up at 4AM to bed at 121PM. Tom finished the Marathon. The route was in the middle of a major highway no trees or shade right in the boiling sun. He lost 7 pounds. My legs and ankles like rubber today. This too will past >How are you doing? Your readings good. A big hello to Jim. HUGS,Reed
Hello Cat. I am late. Running around like a chicken with its head cut off getting ready for Reed's Diner to open on Thanksgiving. I just need to pick up the fresh turkey on Wed. No TOPS meeting Wed just weigh in and go. I put some photos up. Tired today. The old gray mare not As young as he used to be. I hope you are doing well not too low and hello to Jim. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Cat. The wind was blowing a gale woke me up at 5 so I got up. Tested BG 112. I am sorry you keep running so low. I wonder what the cause is? North Carolina was great but good to be home. Sunday St. Augustine holds its first Marathon. They want to make it an annual event. Tom is running. It starts at 6:15. He has told Reed's Diner he wants pasta Saturday night. Thanksgiving right here at home for Russ.Tom and me. A far cry from the 38 years i did all the family holiday dinners. My best to Jim. Hope you both are doing well. Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed
Thank you for the welcome. Did they diagnose you as Type 1 (Did they diagnose you as LADA, did they have that classification in 1999?) Do you have any of the diabetic complications, please excuse me in advance if I am too nosey. Diabetes being a chronic condition leaves me thirsty for knowledge.
Hi Cat, yes I love MDI and I feel like I have as much control as anyone on a pump. I love the feeling of freedom, and when I had a pump I really did not like all the messing around that you had to do with it. It seemed like it was always doing something goofy like getting clogged, beeping, becoming empty at inopportune times and generally I don't feel kinship with mechanical devices. I love my Lantus and Novolog pens! I am glad that you like my page. I really love studying about the universe. It is so interesting and beautiful out there. I finally get to have a black page because Reed is gone this week. He always yells at me when I have a black one because he finds them depressing and he can't seem to read well with black backgrounds.
It is really nice here in Virginia too. We still have plenty of beautiful color, I guess that the leaves stayed up longer because we had so much rain last month. This is the longest fall that I can remember. It is windy today, the sky is blue and I feel just like you. I wish it could be this way all year long. One thing good about Virginia is that we have pretty mild winters. Suri is happy with the new cooler weather, she is all perky now. Hope the kitties are doing well, Take care and have a great week. Lots.
Hi Catlover! The picture I put up is of Kahlia, the first cat my husband and I adopted. She died of feline cancer a year and a half ago and I miss her daily. We have 3 other furry children, and given the smallest encourgement I could on and on about our cats.
hi cat, he'll be back before we know it. I think it's a good idea to take little breaks from time to time. I'm feeling somewhat accomplished today. A quilt I've been working on since 2003 is now all put together in the top except for a couple of flowers. I should be able to get that done by the weekend. then it's off to the quilter. I have a marvelous gal who does the most unbelievable work with her longarm machine. I'm sorry about the other thing. I'm glad you're able to hang out here with all of us and spread a little cheer.
So you have heard of Giving Tuesday, right? Maybe you have seen the hashtag: #GivingTuesday. If you are like me, confused by all of the messages pointing in different directions floating around social media, you may be wondering, “What is Read on! →
