Hi Lots. Another nice page. A little cooler today PTL. I went to bed at 11 woke up at 7. Tested BG 109 had breakfast did my B and W's..withy paste and copy I can whip right through the Welcomes. Thank you Tom for showing me how. About 9 I got on the couch in the Library to read 2 papers. The next thing I knew it was after 11. I must have fallen asleep.We have a Primary here August 14. I have been getting calls calls calls so after the 5th one I answered...WELCOME TO THE GREEN PARROT YOUR FAVORITE BAR AND PUB>...I made a fool of myself it was a lady wanting to know about TOPS. Dentist tomorrow UGH.I hope you are feeling better and got to relax this weekend. Remember ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY so take it slow and easy.. Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed
Morning Lots...luv your page! Remember that song by Neil Diamond.... Forever in Bluejeans? That's me!!!Whatcha up to today? How have you been feeling lately? The kids here are packing like mad. They're moving out next Saturday... and get the keys Friday. The grandkids will be with the other grandma then. Our daughter has a new shift that entails her having to work some Sundays, and Stephen (her little guy) would then be babysat here by our daughter-in-law. However next Sunday, if that's the case... Stephen will be with her ex! Next Saturday will be a madhouse!! On this coming Wednesday (the 18th), I'm helping out at a fundraiser with the Canadian Diabetes Association. It's an amazing day outside! Wishing YOU an awesome day :) Hugs....linda
Hello Lots. Pretty page. I slept until 8. am feeling more like my old self. BG 104. Doing laundry AGAIN. I am trying ACTIVON on my knees to see if it helps. Not as hot today...right on 90. I did not need much at the grocery store,. Prices must be up. I spent $208. Glucerma the shake dor diabetics is pricey. I do not know about the flowers both sides of my driveway. The vinca died. The pinta I planted last Sunday not looking too good. I had galardia there for 2 years you could not kill it. Russ is doing much better. Once in a while he has a bad day. Glad you are feeling better. They are cutting everywhere and expecting one person to do the work of 2 or 3. Tom saw me doing the Welcomes. He said do you do that for each member? I said yes. He said why don't you use cut and paste HUH? He taught me. I now can breeze right through them.You learn something new every day. I hope you are relacing. Take good care and enjoy the rest of the day. Take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed
Hi sweet Lots. Sounds like you are doing ugh better - boy that was really an ordeal you went through. But you are a strong and determined lady. Keep healing. Have a great weekend and says woof to Suri for me.
OMG been so hot! I HATE IT!!! We went like 2 or 3 weeks with no rain at all. Had hit a pretty serious drought here. Things green were dying like grass and my poor tomatoe plants. We finally got rain in last week It was hitting the triple didgets on the thomenter and the heat index was like 117
Evening Lots. Another hot and humid one.I sound like a broken record. Right now we are under a severe thunder storm watch. I did the laundry went to the drug store and that was my day. Got the Agenda ready for TOPS tomorrow.RAP SESSION Any interesting ways to cook veggies. I might get a few tips.I thought I lost my prescription sun glasses I remember after Mass I threw them in the car could not find them. I sat on them and pushed them into the vack of the seat. I hope all is well with you that you are not trying to build Rome in 2 days. Take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed
Hello Lots. Pretty page. Is there no end to this heat? 97 and humid today. After 3 bad nights,I finally slept like a log last night. I lost a lot of my plants due to all the rain from Debbie they rotted out. Yesterday we planted purple (what else) pinta on both sides of my driveway. I hope they grow. Then Tom weeded mulched pruned..he wauits until aboit 7 when it is not so hot. My BG 104. We could not do it withoit Tom. Neither Russ nor I can bend. Russ gets so depressed because he loved working in the garden.Old age brings changes./ How are you feeling? Get any more test results? I just hope you are getting stronger every day. Take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed

Hi Lots. I was just reading on bikette's page about your not so fun birthday. Bummer. But it does sound like things are slowly improving. I sure hope so. We have terrible heat last week. Today is better, but I still have no energy to get anything down. Laundry has been waiting for 2 weeks so I'm down to wearing my ugliest tshirts. Ha, ask me if I care. Hope the coming week brings more healing for you. Say woof to Suri for me.
Hi Lots. Hope that you're well, I expect you, Suri and all are hot. We're almost at 100 degrees right now. Our poor dogs hate it! Supposed to be a little better tomorrow... Hope work is going OK for you. Just had a nice, cold Daura (gf beer), which helps. Cheers!
Good Morning Lots. It is 3:47. I just could not sleep. This heat and humidity has knocked the stuffing out of me and there is no end in sight. Thank God I have power, My friends ib Ohio have been withoutoiwer since last Friday, They had to throw food out VA not doing wekk either. How was your first week back at work. Did it feel like you had never been away? How are you feeling? Any test results yet> Tom is here guess what he wanted? Meatloaf, He has the Readings Sunday so I wil have to practice with him. Been staying in the house too darn hard. Take good care of yourself, I care, HUGS,Reed

"Stuff"!! How's the weather at your end...hot and muggy here...was going to weed after the brief rain shower we had here yesterday....but the air was very thick....and my back still recuperating from having washed the kitchen floor 3x over on all fours (the old fashion way) the day before, when our middle grandson Riley (2) decided to spit out his juice all over the place. I would have been arrested for what I toyed doing to him! The room that our daughter was in before moving into her own place is now taken up as a storage room for Timothy and Steph (son and d-i-l). (Our son and daughter and theirs were here since mid January since the house they shared burned to the ground. No one was hurt, except for 3 pets that perished. Our daughter has moved into a new apartment, and our son has purchased a house and they are moving out of our place mid July!) The storage unit they have rented is all full!!! They're moving into their own house starting the 19th of this month! The repeat empty nest syndrome lol. It sure will feel odd to have the whole house to ourselves again! Steph (d-i-l) has a bad ear/sinus infection. She went to a walk in clinic yesterday, and was put on meds, including ear drops. Early evening, her ear was bleeding, which is not uncommon with ear infections...but I nevertheless offered to take her to ER, knowing that we'd be there for at least 6 hours...no no no...she didn't want to go. Midnight, as I'm coming out of the washroom to go to bed, she and Timothy are at the kitchen table...seems that now she feels she should take me up on that earlier offer. I said to her, "you realize that we'll be there all night 'till mid morning anyway!" She had gone to the internet, and of course got frightened by the comments and suggested diagnoses of her bleeding ear! (sigh....who listens to me!!) So I said..."call telehealth" (a telephone access here, that helps to give you a heads up about your symptoms). They basically paraphrased my comment to her..."you have been seen, you DO have an ear infection which may bleed, you are on medication for it, you do NOT have cancer nor have you suffered trauma to the head. Call your doctor in the morning if it is still bleeding" Who listens to me!!! So this morning, she called her doctor who will see her at....3pm, and the appointment was later changed to 7pm! Guess the doc doesn't share her concern!! So...life goes on in the Miller household! Sounds SO much like a soap that I should ask you to stay tuned tomorrow...same time same station! How's life at YOUR end?? hugs and best wishes....linda
Hi Lots- Too hot for me !!!! We will be staying in for the evening and watching the festivities on TV in Philly. Glad you are back at work. Starting to get the suitcases out for our trip. Not taking too much. We each only take 1 bag. They don't charge on SW for baggage. ( 1/person) Are you doing anything special today ? My BG are still up & down. I will work on changing the insulin doses, they might still be messed up from the cellulitis. I hate being in the 200's so much. I guess that is my plight. Take care.
