Hello Cat. I forget to tell you Chico,the cat gave me a big cupcake for mu birthday. He loves rolling on my rugs. We had a nice day of gentle rain. We sure needed it. For some reason I culd not sleep. Woke up at 3 could not get back so got up and did the Birthdays. Mu BG 109. I will take it. How are you and Jim doing? I hope well. You still run low? Did you get any rain? The A/C manis here checking my unit to get it ready for summer..if you ask me I think we all ready have had summer. Have a great day. HUGS.Reed
hi cat, my bread turned out horrible. first, I should never make it on such a humid day. then I let the first rise, which is 5 hours, go too long, and I messed up on a couple of other things, it's very tempermental (sp?) I guess that's why more people don't make it. just makes me determined to understand everything that goes into it. I can make a regular sandwich loaf in my sleep, it's been almost a year now since we bought any store-bought. getting ready for the quilt show this weekend. I'm doing some demos, I'll be there all day Sat and Sun. we only do this every other year, it's how we make our money for programs, speakers, and to give out scholarship money.
Cat! Chair yoga is great! ioften do the chair with my ladies at the retirement home. Shame its only 12 hour. I do 1 1/2 hour and include meditation, etc. Please keep me in the loop for the Philly gig. I never go to philly but would consider a train from Wilminton for the day if possible? I dont get these updates for some reason? Send me your e mail so I can tell you funny cat stories and forward some PD info I often see for you.
Good Morning Cat. 85 so far does not feel too bad. Thank you and Jim for the very nice birthday card. It was very thoughtful. I am getting loads of emails from former students. One from the class of 1969 sent a beautiful floral arrangement all small orchids. Lightning all last night no thunder no rain. Russ is on his walker watering the plants. TOPS tomorrow. White Elephant Sale, I have 3 bags of stuff. We use the money to help the people who got to the TOPS State Convention. BG 102. Hope you both are doing well. HUGS,Reed
Our weekend was good with the exception of my stomach not feeling good Sunday. Everyday is different. The shower was very nice. Maggiano's in Cherry Hill. They are having a little girl. I need to get started planting in my flower beds too. Have been just concentrating on the veggie garden.Hope your weekend was really nice.
Hi Cat, 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 your PT has helped you and you are feeling well and enjoying this patch of nice weather. Worked in the garden to prepare for some major planting this coming week. Tomatoes, peppers, cukes, corn etc. Have a wonderful Mother's day.
oh yes cat, he has done other things too. he got laid off 10 years ago, just before Sept 11. you know no one was hiring after that. so when our health insurance ran out, he got a job selling cars. he could always do that again. at least they provided health ins, that's the BIG thing. but if he didn't sell a car, his paycheck was $31.75 a week. anyway, I would love to meet you too. I'm not sure where they are holding it, I think it's a separate deal from the big expensive conference. I think I'm going to walk around the lake today. good therapy for the bg and my head.
Hello Cat. A nervous day. Russ is seeing the hip doctor, He told me if he needed a hip rep;acement he would do it as he does not want to be tied to a walker. Rember 2 months ago he had a growth on his adrenal gland? We forgot about it. The surgeon did not he called yesterday and Russ sees him May 22. What next. With all the stress I do not know how my BG stays good...BG 104. Still NO RAIN.It is terrible dry.How are you doing? I hope your readings are a little higher. I just baked Brownies. Tom comes tomorrow. My very best to Jim. Have a great day. Hugs,Reed
Good Morning Cat. I was doing something. The door was open and in wakltzed Chico. I could not get him to leave. He was rolling around on the rug. After an hour I went outside and he followed. Russ is doing so/so. Blood pressure good but still needs the walker. My BG 102. Doing laundry. Hot and humid. I hope you are doing well. You find any difference in your balance after PT? My best to Jim. Have a good day. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Cat. How are you today? I hope well. My BG 108 pleased with that. I am gettinfg mad at the Saints so many of my friends are out of work. They are so well qualified too but it is AGE but you cannot prove it. It is Hot and Humid here day after day. NO RAIN. It seems to go all around us. Russ still using the walker. Tom made him drive around the complex. He did ok. We cannot be without a car. I hope you are not still running low. My best to Jim. I will be 85 on May 15 thinking of where I want to go eat. Have a good day and take good care of yourselves . HUGS,Reed
hi cat, I was gone all yesterday at a quilt show, it was practically in Connecticut, so a fairly long drive. thank God I have friends who aren't afraid to drive on the highway like I am. I'm depressed because the job outlook is very poor and my husband's been out for 11 months now. it's just terrible. anyway, glad you're walking better. May is my favorite month, love all the greens. my fav color above all.
Hi Cat. Thank you for the very kind message. Yes, I am still on Cloud 9 and very much enjoying clear eyesight. Have been working in the yards, planting lots of flowers. Weather has been beautiful. How are you doing? Your grandson? Getting big I bet. Take care and love ya xo
Hi Cat...it was very sticky here today. Rather disappointed that yesterday's apogee moon was not as impressive as I had hoped! It was overcast in the eastern sky here last night. By the time I could actually see the moon, it had risen in the sky and wasn't as large as what it might have been earlier! Spent quite a while on report cards today, so I rewarded myself with a visit to my friends on Tu. Bet you have your AC going!! ;) Take care....luv,
Hello Cat. Being doing gardening cat sitting getting ready now to go to church. Tom has the READING at 5. Russ better still using the walker. He drove to the Community House Tom said he did ok. It is HOT here 94 no rain they keep saying showers but they do not come. I hope you both are doing well. I am tired. Take care. HUGS,Reed
