Hope you're doing well. LC ice cream is easy because the major carbs in ice cream are the sweetener. It's just heavy cream, raw egg yolks, flavoring & sweetener sub. Only drawback to not using sugar is that it turns rock hard. Sugar prevents ice crystals from forming. I've tried adding 1/4 cup vodka, but it didn't help that much. Big hugs!
Good Morning, Marie. A so/so night. Awake sleep awake sleep. My BG 106. Russ goes for first session of Medical Massage and Physical Therapy. I hope they do not bend him out of shape and make things worse. Tom was a godsend. It practically put the rooms back together himself. He is strong. Will be back Thursday. I hope Ed sells a car this week. I thought auto business booming. Give him my best regards. How did you do? Readings good I hope? Will be eager to hear how Russ makes out.The daughter of a friend of mine wrote me telling me her Mother had Dementia hearing loss and eyesight. She must be in her 90's. She was a 40 year KOPS and belonged to the Lexington chapter with me. Any news on your job? Take good care and have a good day. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Marie. Energizer bunny here. Tom went running. We are all leaving at 7:30 to get haircuts andx hoping no one there. Tom would not stop until every room done. The Library just has one box to do...pictures some books. I am delighted with the floors. Because they used quarter round some of the furniture cannot go exactly as it was. Library added Oriental rig. Looks great. After haircuts shopping empty the one remaining box.. Later practice Tom's Reading for the 9 MASS,How is Ed? Give him my best. I see you are up early too. Did you have a good night? I hope so. Your Readings. This amuses me I go to Welcome someone and they all ready have 15 items. Take Good care. HUGS. POPS
Hi Marie. Thank God the rain held off until the work done. I love the floors. Tom is a workhorse he has every room back to normal. My orientals look gtrat on the wood floors. We just need to putup things that go on chests etc. The place looks great. Pouringrainand thunder. Did 30 Welcomes. My best to Ed. I am weary. Have a good night. HUGS, Reed
Hi Marie. Tom had a must do project so he hooked up the computer .The installers come back at 9. They did the big bedroom and 2 closets. Looks good. Hard to get around with all the furniture piled everywhere. It was 96 yesterday thank God house has central air. Pleased to hear Ed doing well if he continues to give goodservice everyone will ask for him. Russ coughing up all night going for chest x-ray at 2...always something. Hope all is well with you. BG 108. HUGS,Reed
Yes, Marie, I saw it on Facebook this morning and was utterly shocked. I just watched the local news and it was not mentioned, perhaps because she hasn't been missing long enough.I met her at the ADA Expo two years ago. Maybe she just needed to get away. But, then, it seems like she would have known a ton of people would be wondering. Sheesh - the surprises life throws our way.
Hello Marie. My house is a war zone. Tom came yesterday. We packed we moved I went to TOPS YIPPEE I gained a pound. Tom will unplug computer last thing. Russ gone to skin doctor please prat that thing on the other side of his nose is not cancer. He says he cannot go through that reconstruction again. I am doing well today. Will be glad when this mess is over but I am sure hardwood floors will look better than this green carpet. Take good care. My best to Ed. Hopefully talk Sat. HUGS,Reed
Hi Marie, Although I had planned to go up to the very end, I didn't go. I have been having a hard time the past few days adjusting to being out of bed and up and around. My stomach is a mess and all my muscles hurt bad. I think it is just because my muscles got weak and now I am doing things they have to be broken in. I think my stomach got used to digesting with me laying flat and now it is getting used to gravity and the fact that I am eating solid foods. I was planning on going but I was so tired and just went to bed. I didn't feel like doing the hula which was the planned activity. Brian said when I get better to let him know and we will meet for coffee or lunch. I do plan to go to the diabetes group for sure next month. I know I will be better by then. I was also getting super frustrated with how slow it is going with the house. Before the operation everything would have been done by now. It feels like I am doing a lot of work but not making any progress. Yesterday we finally got the living room painted. Today we are going to do the carpet and arrange the furniture. It feels so much better to finally have some proof that things are getting done. I have become so attached to Reed that I feel kind of funny when he goes away for more than a few days. He is such a lovely person and so interesting and fun. I hope he has an easy time with the flooring and loves it when it is done. If I had a choice I would have hardwood floors in the living room and in all the bedrooms. Well, today is the big day I put the flowers in the front. Wish me luck. I don't know if I still have a green thumb or not. At one time I was great at gardening. I hope it is like riding a bike, something that you don't forget. Did you start the job yet? The last I read it sounded like progress was being made there. I don't know what happened to Susan and why she is back in the hospital, I am so worried about her. I sent her a card. I think I will send her something to cheer her up. What a hard time she has had. I miss her being here too. Lots.
Good Morning Marie. How are things with you? Did you have a good night? I did. My legs better as I relaxed yesterday and elevated them. Just to alert you I might not be around Thursday and Friday maybe Saturday. They are coming Thursday to install the floors. They have to move all my heavy furniture. Tom will unplug my computer and printer and move it to a safe place. The house will be a mess and I hope I remember where we pit things. Tom coming Wed to help. BG 102.TOPS tomorrow. My Co-Leader she hates speaking in public takes a happy pill is doing the Program. Thunder lightning not a drop of rain. Need to go to drug storePlease give my best to Ed. Cat still having trouble swallowing. You take good care. A BIG HUG, Reed
So glad I was a day-brightener, Marie. We're all in this together. Oh mercy, the Ed story was pathetically funny. Sheesh...... I just went for a walk around one of the two inner city lakes I live between. The dandelion fluff was so thick in the air it truly looked like it was snowing.
As I was telling Reed, with the excess rain we've gotten, the grass on city property is extremely long and shaggy looking. I sort of like it that way - like, fertile and full of possibility.
The sample lady at my grocery store was giving away samples of an energy bar made from quinoa ("no gluten" marketing)- they were so hard that I was afraid I'd crack a tooth biting into it so I went over to the next aisle and spit it into a napkin.
Good Morning, Marie. My knees and legs have never been as bad. I can hardly walk. I cannot walk from the stove to the sink have to grab the walker. Hope it is the dampness and the humidity. We both had to fast have blood drawn. Got to the blood lab at 7. I was #30 and Russ #31. I had blood drawn for 3 doctors. The guy said that is the way to do it better than going there 3 times. Poor Sue. Poor Jim. They kept her. I guess she is having trouble swallowing. She really has had it rough. BG 106. 83 heree all ready. I am not going to do a thing today. Give my best to Ed. Take a photo when you get into your work outfit. HUGS, Reed
Good Morning, MArie. We were supposed to get more thunderstorms but we did not. I slept until 8. I did not even hear Tom go out to run. He came home said it was very,very humid. Got his lumberjack breakfast. The lawyer sent drafts of wills we went over them. He was more thorough then the lawyer who did the originals. My BG 104. Russ starts Massage and Physical theraoy on his leg June 17th. Tom and I thought from the beginning he should be doing therapy. When I get a question I cannot answer I tell themto contact CARETEAM and I tell them how to find CT..right? Going to be 90 today. Going grocery shopping and later watch the Belmont Stakes. Yeah sorry for joe. Take care and have a good day. HUGS,Reed
Hello Marie. I will pray the kid I had in school remember me on all my occasions is 63 he has 3 interviews set up..he is Human Resources, I will double pray for Ed and Mark. I got a short note from Cat. Almost 90 here. Doing laundry. The physical therapist just called she will see Russ June 17th. Let us hope this helps. I do all the W's and B's. A lot from India. We have almost 29,000 members. My zinnias are beautiful. Have 3 vases of them in the house. Have a good rest of the day. HUGS, POPs

Dampness and humidity.But you know me nothing stops this Energizer bunny. Get that BG down. My very best to Ed. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
Hi there, Gosh, I would have thought you would be working by now. I remember when I first did my application for my last job it took so long for an interview that I had forgotten that I applied! I would not be good at the bakery. I am not a morning person. When Reed says he gets up at five I get a headache thinking about it. I hope that your supervisor is nice when you finally get to meet them. Mine was awful. I was upset about my dead herbs, especially since I had bought them at Merrifield Garden Center. I was so sure that I was going to have a glorious crop. Oh well, now I am working on not killing the marigolds and petunias. Those are hard to kill. That hideaway of pole beans sounds awesome. I would like to make something like that down in the backyard. You have to walk down some stairs from the deck to get there. It is kind of secluded. It would be neat to try the pole beans. When my kid was a young guy I had a bread maker. That was so neat. It would beat the dough and the dough would rise in it and then it would cook and I would have fresh bread. It had all kinds of recipes too. It was great. I cooked a knotted bread loaf once in the oven.. It came out well. It does make the house smell great. Right now it smells like paint. Yuck, painted the bathroom and most of my bedroom so far. The bathroom came out so pretty. It is two shades of pale lavender, the floor is tan and the other things are white. It looks very fresh and inviting. Good luck with getting to work. I bet it will be soon.
