Hi Marie-I hope you are doing well. How is the bread business going ? Are you making anything special for Christmas ? Any breads or cakes ? Your house must smell wonderful all of the time from the oven. I am just getting over a rotten cold. I felt lousy all weekend and just today feel better. At least my BG weren't effected. Lots is really enjoying her new dog. I am glad for her, she had such a bad year. I will also be happy to say "good-bye" to 2013. I hope for a healthier 2014. Have you had any snow up your way yet this season ? I would like to see a little this winter. We really haven't had much the past 2 winters. Have you made any new quilts lately ? You really have a talent for many domestic things. I have been greeting new members again when I have a chance. I can't believe TuD has over 31,000 members. January will be 4 years that I became a member. I think there were 11,000 at that time. We have really grown.
Hope you and Ed have a happy holiday season. Cat
Good Morning, Marie. Crazy morning. I could not type. Changed batteries in keyboard and mouse. Still could not type. I guess I will have to wait until tomorrow when Tom comes. Looked at keyboard again. I had the batteries backwards. I had a good night. Bg 102. TOPS today. I just do the business. Russ's niece and her husband from NY supposed to drop in about 3 on their was to their condo in Stuart. I tried to get on Chat but it says I am disconnected. What button do I push to get connected again. Did you have a good night? Readings OK. I hope so. TV here swamped with car ads. Give my best to Ed. You baking today? Take goood care. HUGS,POPS
Good Morning,Marie. I have not been doing much in the way of chatting. I am in a blue funk..depressed really. I find i cannot do the things i loved to do. In the house I am now so depending on the walker just from stove to fridge.So afraid of falling. I guess at 86 I cannot expect to be 100% all the time. TOPS tomorrow and about 3 relatives from NY dropping in on their way to their condo in Stuard. Dessert and tea. Going to try and do the laundry. BG106. Did you have a good night? Reading? Does Ed feel older? Give him my best. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
Thanks re the pic, Marie. It is 60 miles directly west of Minneapolis. Actually, I did some enhancements with the computer's photo editor so I can' take all the credit. Somebody on FB put up a recipe for a "Thanksgiving leftover wreath" where you take the stuffing and meat and anything else and make a circle of crescent roll canned dough to envelop it. Looked delicious but extremely carb loaded It was interesting because I tested my blood in the living room and my aunt and uncle really asked a lot of questions about db. They were both science teachers and very curious.
Here is of pic of them, before we were "going for a ride", which, in Minnesotan, means everybody piling into the car and driving off with no real destination. GO figure. I loved it.
Good Morning, Marie. I had a good night. BG104. Hope you did too. Your readings good? It was cold last night I had to put the heat on. Tom is out running. He plans to run 18 miles. He is getting ready for a Marathon Dec 29. He reads tmorrow so we will leave for church early. Florida plays Florida State at noon. We will get killed. They are the #2 team in the country. Car sales here every dealer, I think a lot of cars. Give my best to Ed. You have a good day. A NIG HUG,Reed
Morning Marie. I hope you had a good day at the bil. Everything here turned out well. Too much food. Thank God for Tom he did the cleanup. Some people camped out since Tuesday to get bargains..foolish. I do all my shopping online.Florida wants to tax that kind of shopping. Tom is at the Gym. My BG112. I cook it and then I do not eat much, It was a cold day but a little warmer today.AsI look around I will be eating left oversfor a while. Give my best to Ed. Hope your Readings are good. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
Hi Marie-I want to wish you and Ed a very Happy Thanksgiving. I read where you are not cooking for the holiday, I am not cooking either. We were invited to dinner at a friends' house. I must really watch what I eat to keep my BG from going thru the stratosphere. Have a great day !
I am so glad I wanted ppl to talk about it I was very scared of posting it but the feedback a have been great.
I will do this place is the first place I have ever felt so welcome and understood. Tudiabetes rocks and I tell every diabetic that I come across.lol
Hugs dear friend
Good Morning,Marie. Rained hard all night. I had a good night. BG102. The sun is out but very windy and 55. Did you get all your orders filled. When I buy myrolls this afternoon I bet they will not be as good as yours. Tom comes at 1 and he will go with me to get the turkeys and a few other things. BG102. Have a good holiday. I doubt I will be on tomorrow. Baking an apple pie. Pumpkin next. My very best to Ed. Cars on the brain. A BIG HUG. Reed
Hey Marie. Sounds like you did good on the bread sale. I sure hope little Chico doesn't accidentally get shut in a drawer. No snow here yet, but bitter windchill today.
Hope you have a good Thanksgiving, my friend.
How are you?
I pray all is well with you. I am alive and kicking still.
Just been thinking about you lately you do hold a special part in my heart even though I have never met you.
I damaged my phone so no more tweeting for me till I get a new one.lol
I met a girl from Somalia that also has diabetes,it was amazing. We had so much in common it was so scary. Nura is growing talking to trying to boss me around but she knows deep down I am the boss.lol
Good Morning,Marie. I slept until 8 making up for lost time. It is pouring rasin. Chico had the door. Russ opend a drawer to get a tee shirt and Chico jumped in the drawer ready for a nap.My typing is awful. Laundry today. Tomorrow baking 2 pies go for insulin then the turkey. I hope Tom gets off early so he can go with me. Even only 3 of us I am doing it up as if I have 30. BG108. I bet you are baking. Is this Guild day? No TOPS tomorrow. I have begun my Christmas shopping. I do it all online. Did you get my card? My handwriting so bad it could wind up in New York. Hope your Readings good. My best to Ed. Take good care HUGS,Reed
Morning Marie. I had a terrible night. Awake from 11 to 4. Took 2 Tylenol went back to bed and slept until 7:30. Chilly here but nothing like you.BG104. I hope your night was not like mine and your Readings good. I bet you will be baking like crazy filling orders. I loved those rolls you have on Kathy's page....they look great. I could eat 6.Not doing much today except go to pharmacy. Russ has the house redy for Thanksgiving. Wed I pick up fresh turkey and rolls. I know you and Ed going to Ed's brother's. Not much else to report. Cars dreaming about cars. My best to Ed. You take good care. A BIG HUG. Reed
Good Morning,Marie. I had a good night. Feels like a 50 pound weight has been lifted from my shoulders. That was a big drop in the PSA. December assignments are out. Tom has to serve on Christmas Day. I will go with him. Nice and cool here and the sun is out. BG 102. How are things with you? You still have orders to fill? Imagine you will get real busy as we head into Christmas. How is Ed? Give him my best. Big car sales here butI do not know if anyone buying. I heard from Kristin. Another name I do not see Gerry? Taking up a special collection Sunday for the Phillipines. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
Oh Marie, I just LOVED The video. It was so cute. I watched the entire song on allthe channels. Thanks for thinking of me!! I also checked out the recipe. Will have to try it. I made these weired bbq apple chips where you slice an apple and dip them in a curry type mixture. I think I let them bake too long because they were just awful. Plus, I am afraid of my mandolin. I swear I'll cut myself one day or another. Also, thanks for the needle tip for the sewing machine. I was buying my needles at the dollar store, so I guess I won't be doing that again. I put the machine away for a bit because the dress was pretty tedious.
Getting a bit chilly here, with a chance of snow. I hate the early darkness. After being lasered 10 years ago I don't see so hot in the dark. In my own neighborhood It's fine, but new places intimidate me. I sure don't need to be stepping of a curb that I'm unaware of.
I think Jane, Esther and I are going to my hometown for Thanksgiving, to be with my aunt & uncle. They are both in rapidly declining health so I think this will be the last holiday season they're in their lake home. Both my sister and I are willing to bring large several components of the mean, but, no, they are stubborn and want to do it all on their own.
I saw your loaf on Reed's page - looked just gorgeous. You are going to make a name for yourself, sister!!
