Hello Marie. I was tired but I had one of those nights. Even with sleeping pill I was awake all night. Some time today I am going to try and get out of the WC and use my own walker. I only have 4 sessions of therapy left. Tom says it is 112 in Vegas. Russ seems to be dpoing better but his feet swoolen. The lung doctor wants him to see a heart doctor. We have a call in to Dr. George. It is too hot to do anythingl. Does Ed work today? Give him my best. How are things with you? I hope ok. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

I still like doing welcomes and Happy Birthdays so want to still do that-But can't sign on for certain times to do it.Never know from day to day when I will be online. So I am out of the Care Team but I still care :) Take care sweet Marie :)

Hi Marie. I usually keep Udi's white sandwich bread (available in most big grocery store freezers) in my freezer. It is both gluten- and lactose-free, and it toasts well and tastes pretty good.

Yesterday I tried a box mix, King Arthur Four's glutenfree bread & pizza crust mix. It makes one loaf; you add 4 Tbl butter or oil, 1 3/4 cup milk, and 3 large eggs. Glutenfree flours pick up taste very well, so I thought this tasted very good (like eggs), had good texture, and toasts well. If lactose is not a problem, I would recommend it.

My husband is my (good) critic as well, is NOT gf and likes wheat, and thought this King Arthur loaf was pretty good--he doesn't care much for Udi's white sandwich bread. However, Ginger Viera wrote that she likes the Udi's very much!

Back when I was using my bread machine, I made Pamela's bread and like it pretty well--it's been too long to remember much about it, but I remember liking it. Might haul that bread machine out again one of these days!

Marie, thanks for the kind well wishes. I do feel better today. One good thing about an RA flare is that they do subside eventually. Well at least they always have in the past and hopefully it will always will.....rick

Hi Marie. We had an 82 degree summer day, but for some reason I decided to bake. How on earth do you do all your bred baking in the summer?!!! I wasn't baking from scratch, but I tried out King Arthur's box of GF bread mix, and I thought it was pretty good. Also made some brownies. Having sampled all my wares, I've been shooting up ever since! Hope you're having a good summer.

Hi Marie,
Thanks for the nice greeting!
Yes that's my Joslin Medal which I received a few months ago...I'll complete 59 years on 9/3 so in reality I believe I'll be getting the 60 year version in 2015..assuming I'm still alive and kicking and being the same ole DIA-BAD-ASS I've always been ;-)

Marie, thank you for the kind note. It is always a joy to hear from you. I am a little down today and hearing from you brightened my life...............................rick

Marie, one of my friends who is a sample lady at my grocery store sliced her finger yesterday and required 7 stitches. I guess it cause a very big commotion in the store.
Have a good weekend.

And how lovely to get such a great update from you. Good Goddess, do I remember shopping with my Mom. While I feel like you do about the acquisition of new clothes or "stuff" (it's always very practical for me---I find a pair of knit pants that is comfortable and buy 4 pairs in different colors that last for years, for instance---though I have never forgotten one style lesson from her---if looking good is suddenly important & you can only afford 1 new thing, buy a stylish jacket!---it can make all your clothes look "new").

As her health failed, I would always bring my computer when I went to care for her and we would shop online for birthday and holiday gifts! I think there is a certain kind of "engagement" with the lively colors and interesting strangers and the sounds of Life in general that makes these things meaningful as shared experiences!

Love the delightful irony of your bread-baking endeavors. I am sure it is Deeelish! And so very glad that your exquisite quilting continues to be a thread in your life! I have never forgotten how honored I was to have a panel in the TuD quilt.....

With the help of my good-hearted PCP, this spring has been about figuring out how to deal with newly dx liver and thyroid problems, on top of everything else. Next appointment to go over test results is June 30th. So it goes....Blessings and love, old friend...Judith
