Hello Ellen. Things have kinda slowed down. Russ's blood pressure the last 3 times NORMAL keeping my fingers crossed. Easter good but the ham was tasteless it was like sawdust. It was supposed to be spiral cut but it was not. I wrote to the company got an email back looking into it. The candy and cake good. My BG today 104. Doing a big load of laundry. TOPS tomorrow...BORING...we are required to read and redo the BiLaws page by page right after the elections. It is a waste of time as we do it every ear and there are no changes. My PCP is retiring. A lot of doctors too many elderly not taking new patients. I cannot pronounce the name of most of them. No Smiths or Jones. How was your holiday? I hope great. So pleased you are losing weight it will help you in the long run. So far last week I had a golden retrievr visited my cousin from Maine had 2 poodles. One was apricot color I never saw that before. The weather is glorious sunny and 77. I hope all is well with you. Take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed
Hi Lots. The egg pic is on Reed's page. The marbelized ones did not work out at all so we did natural dyes with blueberries, beets and onion skins. A lot of mashing and simmering - way too much work. But I like their delicate color. For lunch this week I will be having egg salad sandwiches on rye bread, made with Helleman's full-fat mayo. Tomorrow all the candy will be on sale so I can stock up for hypos. I have 3 huge bags of conversation hearts so probably really don't need anything more.
Are you all recovered from your fall? Sometimes injuries like that don't show up right away. I hope you are okay.
Have a great week ahead!
Lots, I'm so touched by what you see in my Art Work!!!!!!! and I'm proud of you . Taking a long overdue, and healthy , vacation. Doing that, really took allot of spirit and gumption. Easter has been productive for me. I grouted ( cemented ) the Blue Dragon today. I planned everything out ahead of time including eating, insulin and an "after grout" snack. the process took me four hours and the piece is now drying. Grouting is a real undertaking ,and messy, but I did it! In 24 hours I'll be able to see the final results. No set backs, except that the grout was thin. Rats. However what's done is done and the piece is now cemented. There's no going back and I am proud to say I am still maintaining as a diabetic person. All on time with my eating and insulin intake. It really does make a difference to ones' activities. So again, I am proud of you taking a break from work and minding your health. HAPPY EASTER enjoy the beauty! Cathy
BRIGHT YELLOW SUNSHINE Busy busy. I want to wish you a wonderful weekend. Tom read the HOMILY at church today 3 pages. The Bishop asked his name told him he had a great voice and great tonality. It was an old Greek sermon. I could not pronounce some of the words. Easter the Cathedral will be mobbed as the 2 times a year Catholics come ut Easter and Christmas. Russ still suffering from low BP.He took it at 10AM and it was very low. I thought he would pass out.I hope yoy have a wonderful Easter. HUGS,Reed
Hey Lots!!!! I'm back. LOL! No no plans really for Easter. Just plan on taking things as they go by tomorrow. I do miss those times with my girls when they were little but I think it's time Amber passed the tridition on to her kids and I'm all for that this year. I'm taking sometime off till I get to feeling better and now my husband & I get to be treated for awhile (we'll see how far that goes huh??? LOL) Hope alls well with u!
Hi Lots, yes it is a busy time. Bought flowers cuz I give one to each of the girls when they come. Cemetery boxes that Pete and I took out today for my Dad and Joe's parents. Shopped for all the Easter fixin's. We'll be having Ham, yams, mashed for Brian cuz he hates yams. I have a pineapple filling that everyone loves and goes perfect with ham.Decorating eggs today with Pete and his G/F.Housecleaning etc. Weather still a little cool at 57 and windy. Supposed to be in the 60's tomorrrow. Gave some clothes to my neighbor. She has been unemployed for 18 months and has a husband who has MS and not doing well and is wheelchair bound. I still have days where things don't agree with me but its getting better. Normal BS & NO meds is just great. The weight loss is really like an added bonus.My feet have always been bad. This job does that to you.Hope your Easter is wonderful. Enjoy !!!!
It's a stress reduced weekend. Son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandchildren away till tomorrow (Easter) after dinner....and daughter will be away tomorrow, while 3rd grandchild/son is visiting with his dad for Easter day. There will be left overs available for them to have tomorrow evening from my end....but the stress of prepping the meal will be absent! Will be having turkey and the works....plus a dessert of sorts. The grandchildren are getting books from us as an Easter gift! Today...it's heft over fish from yesterday!
Hi Lots. Thanks for the bunny and bluebird graphic! You commented last weekthat our place sounds lovely, which it is after a little bit of work -- my husband has been raking leftover leaves, doing leftover fall yard work. I'm plotting out in my mind what to get for spring gardening; we have so much shade that impatients and fuschias, with some containers of petunias are about it. Also the herb garden -- no bunnies this year! This was absolutely the first year that our rosemary wintered over, has been good tasting all winter; and the mint came back.
The Goldens are fine. We've been lucky too with our dogs, as you are with Suri, although it's been a bit of an adjustment now and again. For instance, my beloved Gem used to run away every chance she got. Have a good vacation week, and Happy Easter!
Hi Lots- Thank you for your Passover wishes. We went to a Seder last night and are going to another one tonight. There is always too much food. But after tonight I will go back to eating my regular way. Sorry you weren't feeling too well. I am OK and enjoying this lovely spring weather. My kitties like to sit by an open dining room window and watch for the birds to land on the feeders. The PT is going well. I have 1 more week of the therapist coming to my house. Then I will be doing the exercises by myself. I hope you have a blessed Easter. Give Suri a hug from me. Cat =^..^=
Thank you. Going through my clothes now for tonight. I miss Donna now because she would give the second check to make sure I had everything right. LOL Her brother and his wife are coming to the vigil tonight. I hope you have a great Easter. What special treat will Suri get for Easter?
TGIF TGIF Hope they let you out early. I need to go to the Pharmacy pick up a few things at Winn Dixie major shopping tomorrow after Tom does the Readings and Pragers at the Cathedral. Having ham. I wiush you a wonderful holiday and I am glad you are my friend.
HAPPY EASTER HAPPY SPRING HAPPY BLOOMING EVERYTHING!!! '
