Hi Ellen. Thanks for the pretty graphics of the Hummer, the pumpkin & golden flower. I hope things are going well for you and the furkids. We're having fall color, the Sassafras trees are beautiful, but the Oaks are still green. I've run into a bit of a problem--my legs swelled up the last few days; happy that today they're nearly normal. The right one is far the worst, so I have to wonder if I'm getting more of a kidney problem (I know I have a bit of one) or if my right replacement knee is showing signs of age (it's now 14 y.o.). Put this in the category of "It's Always Something". I'll see my doctor in December. Happy fall! Trudy

Hey Ellen....thanks for the post....for thinking of me. I think many are annoyed with me for not connecting more frequently. I have so much on my plate right now....including health issues. Believe me, it's not intentional. Thanks for not "unfriending" me. Getting older is not as peachy keen as I thought it would be lol. Next weekend is our Thanksgiving. The kids and theirs will be over, as well as one of my brothers and his lady friend. It'll be a fun time and a feast. I have a bug right now....so hope it's gone soon so I can get started prepping.
Will have to wait till I'm well to get a flu shot. Exposed to little snotters daily....no wonder we get sick! How are YOU and what have you been up to?
Take care, and baskets of hugs....linda

Hey sister. Today at the grocery store if you got a flu shot you got a piece of dry old cake. I gave mine to a little kid who seemed to enjoy it.
Today I'm making vegetarian chili with tomatoes, zucchini, onion, garlic tofu, beans, a half used jar of spaghetti sauce and some liquid smoke.
Will freeze it in individual portions.

Hi Ellen-I haven't been on my computer much this week b/c it hasn't been acting well. Since we have moved in the wireless network we are on is giving us trouble. It is soooo slow and locks us out sometimes. I have trouble reading on your new purple page. The ink blends in w/the page. How have you been feeling ? I had a couple of really good days this week. I only wish they were everyday. My holiday was the past 2 days and I went to the synagogue. I have another holiday next Sat. It is a fast day, but I don't fast. Jim and I got our Flu shots on Wed. We are both fine from them. I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather. It appears the warm temps will disappear after this weekend. Have a great weekend. Take care. Susan

Ellen, how are you? thanks for replying. I can't see the comments on you r page as the colors of the background and type are so similar. I'm sure you'll soon be putting up some fall decor. the trees are starting to change here, and the hummingbirds have bugged out early. we have a lot of what they call "agro-tourism" here, orchards and corn mazes and sunflower mazes, hayrides and pumpkin patches. saw a lot today driving up to warwick NY for the guild, which was merry and raucous with an exciting program on scrap quilts. we've got a very friendly group there. I also sold $54 in bread. hope you're hanging in there, hugs, think of you often my friend.

Hi Lots,
It froze about 3 weeks ago and we harvested our 3 tomato plants the night before. All the leaves are orange and yellow and are beginning to fall. It hovers around freeing most days. This is my first visit to TU in about a year and I am not on the net much any more. Miss Kitka is well but got a bit pudgy so she has been on a gentle diet and has lost one pound. Her and I still love watching Japanese giant monster movies ha ha!

How is your family, Chris, Jesse, Zen and Ammi. We are all fairly well.
Thank you for the note. Mom is, shall we say, nominal. Dad has been super protective of her and refused help. My sister and I finally convinced him to allow home care nurses in twice a week to bath her and help with her care. She now plans to never go to a hospital again. It is great to see your house is a home.

The weather has been fantastic. Warmer today 78. I had lunch then drove down to the river and opened up the car and parked awhile. It was beautiful.

I think I'm going to try an apple and peanut butter for lows for awhile.

HI Ellen-thanks for the message. This has not been a good week for me. I have felt dizzy, weak and get a headache almost every day. I emailed my neuro. and he said it could be my BP which has been running a little low. I have a home BP cuff and have been taking my BP most mornings. It is OK so far. As far as the house, it went on the market last Friday. There have only been 3 people who looked at it and no offers. It looks really nice, the carpets are gone and the hard wood floors were stained darkish. The whole place was painted and the wallpaper was removed. It is empty and the rooms look even bigger. We have to wait and see what happpens.
How are you feeling ? Any new test results ? Is your garden still producing veggies ? How are Ammi and Zen ? Still getting along ?
Zorro has recovered from his ordeal at the vet. He is back to eating normally. He has adjusted to our new home, but spends most of his time sleeping under my bed.
This cooler weather has been nice, but I am not ready for the colder seasons yet. Tomorrow will be warm. Hope you have a nice weekend.

I have a lot of glucerna. I drink it for a meal or when I'm low. I'll think about it more for snacks.

Milk is good. I drink a lot of milk.

What kind of protein things can I add to my meals. Is pecans OK?


At 7:41am on September 16, 2014, Cathy said…


I've been eating Roast beef sandwiches recently and think I will continue awhile. From Arby's. They are on weight watchers diet. but I have been eating pecans in between meals. All this just recently probably since we've talked.

Com on back to chat. We could get some really good conversation up with this topic. Sorry about your experience with Chat before but it's been awhile hasn't it?

Lots,I hope you are better today.I am praying for you.

At 3:55pm on September 15, 2014, Cathy said…


I try to eat protein when ever I can but I guess I don't do it enough. BS went to 47 last night. I have been doing weight watchers. Not much protein in that but I'm finding ways.
