Good Morning,Marie. Another good night. I hope I have the not sleeping conquered. Trouble with bathroom toiler so Dr. Rooter is here. Probably another big bill. Weather wonderful. Kathy told me they were expecting more snow. Russ sees the lung doctor tomorrow at 8. Russ is not a morning person. Tom will take him. Got my tax stuff ready and left it with the CPA yesterday. I hope I owe no more money. I pay estimated taxes. BG106. I hope this weekend we can go to the Ravine. Nothing but acres of azaleas you ride through hills and dales. Last year it was $5 each. How is Ed doing any sales? You? You baking? Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Hi Marie - sooooooo how come I got a crocodile and you get a vase of flowers? Just kidding. I love them both!!!
I stumbled on Live from Daryl's House about a year ago and just love it. They do great covers of classic rock and he has good guests. Daryl was also on an episode of This Old House on PBS describing how he was renovating his house in the Hamptons.
I am still coveting the watermelon pickles - but, really, that spice combo could be used with pickle chips also. Maybe I'll divide the recipe into a quarter. Supposedly we will get a foot of snow tonight and another foot tomorrow night. I am taking no chances and cancelled a dr appt I had for Friday morning.
I do so like the longer days.
I missed the chat on depression - thought it was an hour later than t was. As usual, not paying attention............
I was at Joanne's to get fabric for this rollup blind that I'm making. it was 40% off but now I've discovered I am short by 8". As usual, I didn't think I needed to measure. At least with winter almost over I can get to the store easier. It is a 5 block walk from the bus stop, across a freeway with poorly timed lights. Sigh.
Take care, dear friend.

Good Morning,Marie. A miracle. I slept until 9:30. This is 5 days of good sleep. My elbow did not bother. I must have banged it and not know it. Chico is in the window soaking up the sun. BG106. TOPS tomorrow. Rap Session on Exercise. It is sunny and 54 degrees. I reserved my room for the State TOPS Rally. I got one right on the ocean, Russ so happy he did not have to go to lung doctor today. Feels better whebn Tom goes with him. How are things with you? Did you have a good night.? Your quilt is lovely. I hope you get a good price. That is all the news from here. My best to Ed. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Marie. I think I am going to leave Tudiabetes. All I do is complain. Who wants to read that. None of my aches and pains diabetes related. I was sleeping great when a pain my left elbow woke me up. I said OH No. I had the same thing in my right elbow that caused 18 trips to the hospital. Pushing the walker might be the culprit. Then checking my banking online they said the password wrong. It is the same one I have used ever since I opened my account at the bank. BG102. Hope you had a good night. Good Readings. The papers and TV loaded with car commercials. Ed has to sell a few. Today without fail I need to gather my tax stuff for the CPA. Give Ed my best. Has most of the snow gone? I saw a robin. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Marie. I just got up tested BG104. The new pill combine is working great as I am sleeping like a baby. So good to get that under control. My knees and legs I can tolerate. It poured all night. Supposed to rain today. If it lets up we will go to the RAVINE 50 acres of nothing but azaleas.Then we will go to Corky Bells right on the River,for a belated Birthday dinner for Russ. Have not been doing much. Bought the water seal to do the deck when the sun dries it, How are you doing> Readings good? Hope so. Give my best to Ed. Take good care. HUGS,POPS

Hello Marie. Hormone shots cause sleeplessness. I am getting them for my prostate cancer. Take one half of new pill and one whole old pill. IT WORKED. I did not wake up until 9. So hope it continues. Lot of calls neighbors dropping in for Russ;s 88th birthday. He would like to forget it.Dreary day. Supposed to get colder. Going to do laundry. Tom comes tonight. He bought a new door the thieves smashed the old one. We will take out Russ tomorrow night for his birthday. BG106.Glad you slept. Give my best to Ed. Take good care. Hugs.Reed Lights went out for 10 minutes and I had to reset everything even the computer,

Marie, I really want to make these - but I don't need 4 quarts. Where would I get that much watermelon rind? And, do you think I could use splenda instead of the sugar?

At 3:07am on March 26, 2014, SEAGATOR said…

Good Morning,Marie. I got to 4:30. I hope my visit with the doctor today will get me something that lasys all night. Well got B;s and W's done. It is not as cold as they said it would be. How was the GUILD? Do you ever work on quilts for yourself? They would bring good money. I was thinking of Nel.She always welcomed the folks from Canada. Hipe she is ok. I hope you had a good night and your Readings good. Take good care and have a good day,My best to Ed. Hugs,Reed

Good Morning,Marie. I had a good night. Even so I am going to call the doctor. I have 2 bad nights and a good one like last night. Dark and dreary. HUMID.I am debating whether to give up TOPS. Walking is so hard for me. I do not dare to get the papers anymore. He throws them to hit car when garage door closes my walker will not let me go there. Oh well. I am so tired of complaining. We are swating oit Russ's insurance. It is now $876 a month for one person.They have been going up by the 100;s. He will be 88 tomorrow. Willgo out to eat Saturday. Wish new members would say the state they are fromnd the city too. You taking bread to the Guild. Have a good time. HUGS,Reed

Hi Marie-It seems that I haven't connected with you for a while. I am sure you are just as tired of the cold and snow as I am. We may get some snow Tuesday night. Yuck ! I ended up having to get a new meter after all, b/c my ins. Won't cover the Accu-Chek compact plus anymore. I will be getting an Accu-Chek Nano meter. Have you heard anything about it ? I had a voucher from the Accu-Chek website so I will have 2 of them. One from the mail order pharmacy company and 1 from the voucher. I am waiting for the test strips to arrive. My new PCP, who seems very thorough, has OKed the change. She gave me samples of the pens I use, which I appreciated. Are you still baking breads? How is Ed doing selling cars. Hopefully the car sales business will pick up with the soon to arrive warmer weather. We still haven't heard about the apt, but we are cleaning out the house. I found things that I never used that I got for wedding presents 48 years ago. I don't think I need them. I hope you have a good week and the snow doesn't come. Take care. Cat
