Good Morning,Kathy. A glorious morning here. They say it is going to be 85 degrees. Yes we three get along great. Tom comes at noon today. Leaves at 4AM for Toronto. He is going to a conference. Back Monday. It will seem funny not having him here for the weekend. That kid I had not seen in 43 years was an awesome surprise. BG back to normal 102. I am not convinced those cortisone shots do much good. Russ doing better. BP not right. He is decorating the house for Easter. This afternoon,we three go for haircuts. What have you been up to? Still walking.? I hope the weather is good there. My neighbors let SPOOKY out jet black 3 weeks ago he has a chip..he never came back. They are returning to MA soon without him. Have a wonderful day. I care. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Kathy. I have not heard from you in two days. I hope you are ok or better still on a tropical isle somewhere. Russ is having a terrible time getting his blood pressure straightened out. I got my BG down feeling great then,about 2,yesterday water began to pour off me tested and I was BG60...no idea how that happened but I hit the jelly beans. TOPS today. I do not do the Program. Have you been walking? Is the weather god? It is glorious here. I hd to cancel my foot doctor due to BG 60 and I was shaking. Doing fine this morning. Have a wnderful day and take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Kathy. I am late so much going on. I had to get the garden waste out. Get ready for the nurse she is a yacker and get my Agenda and Stuff ready for TOPS tomorrow. Russ will not admit it but I know he enjoyed his birthday. Later in the day we had a late lunch at KATES ON THE WATER. Tom left at 8. 15 minutes later the doorbell rand and there was Tom with a small birthday cake. What a kid. NG 106 back to normal. How are things with you? You been doing anything exciting? The weather is gorgeous. Russ is much,much better PTL. You have a great and wonderful day. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning.Kathy. No big birthday celebration here. Huess what he wanted? A new gardeb hose and sees for Cosmos and Zinnias. I ordered a Spring bouquet that should be arriving later. He is feeling much better and can hear on the phone. I finally got my BG down from 462 to 122. That had me worried. I do not know if we will lunch out or not. For some reason I am a little shakey. LUMBERMAN'S Breakfast..oj 2 slices of French oast 3 eggs with a slice of cheese scrambled bacon and 3 sausage patties and tea. I do not eat that. Tom runs it off. Glad you are getting good weather. In the 80's every day here. Any thing exciting going on with you? You still walking? Take good care of yourself and have a wonderful day. I care. HUGS,Reed

hi kathy, first day wearing my Tuiabetes ped thingie. probably not the best day as I went to a quilts of valor workshop, so I spent 4 hours basically sitting and sewing, it's 4PM and I only have 4786 steps, and that's after our little walk. I hope you are doing well, I always think of you whenever anyone mentions Minneapolis. my husband used to travel there every month.

Kathy - Sorry Kona is a bad boy and bit you. Cats can be quirky sometimes. Our female cat will nip us if she doesn't want to play anymore. The male as never even attempted a nip or a bite. Of course, she is in charge of the house. Hope you are enjoying the spring flowers as much as I am. All the flowering trees are well in bloom, magnolia, plum, cherry. Take care and tell Kona I said he was a very bad boy. Cat

Good Morning.Kathy. I am glad you got to the Y. I love strawberries too. Russ has loads of batteries chabges them every 7 days. I think the aids might be plugged. He is on his way to Beltone right now. All the stuff they injected into him in the hospital might have affected the hearing. The PT is very good. He has given Russ sheets of exercises. He comes at 11. The nurse to me is useless. We need a homemaker.My BG 101. Russ's BP 121/73 so that is good. Dentist this afternoon. I have to have a filling UGH> Our days continue to be glorious. Lot of forest fires. We need rain. I hope you are doing well and have a wonderful day. I care. HUGS,Reed

thanks! I will try for that stride measurement this afternoon. that sounds like a nice way to do the windows. you could also drape sheer fabric like the scarves.

say, I saw on Twitter that 50 years ago today Dylan's debut album was released: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/50-years-ago-today-bob-dylan-released-his-debut-album-20120319

hi Kathy, hard to believe the temperatures you're getting, really nice here too.

I'm going to figure out this pedometer I have. can you tell me how you determined your "stride length" and what yours is? the directions are so meager.

Morning Kathy. Tell your neighbor it is too soon to be putting in an A/C unit. I remember one May 9th we had a blizzard. I have a box of St. Patrick's Day ornaments and forgot to put them put. I better remember Easter. The Bishop told Tom he did a good job. Waiting for the PT to come for Russ. I am doing laundry seems to be a Monday chore. Glad you go to the Y but be careful you do not overdo things. TOPS on Wed I get re-installed as Leader honors and awards given out. I had to pay $500 more in taxes even though I paid estimated taxes. I also sent in my April 17 estimated tax payment. Take good care of yourself. I care. You are in my thoughts. HUGS,Reed

Hi Kathy - Hope you are feeling well. I saw where your BG went really high. We all have that some times. Mine generally goes too low. I can't believe it is so warm in your part of the country. Here it will be in the 70's all week. Our flowers and shrubs are all blooming. I have to remind myself it is just the middle of March. I hope we don't all suffer this summer with the bugs that didn't die over the winter we didn't have. Say "Hi" to Esther and Kona from Maggie and Zorro ( my cats.) Take care. Cat =^..^=

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY,Kathy. Sorry your number went so high. I sometimes miss the noon shot and wonder if I should take it when I think of it. Russ doing well. Blood pressure back to normal. We are going out to dinner tonight to STONEWOOD in Ormond Beach. A nurse is supposed to come today. I wonder if she remembered it is Saturday. Lights went off duting the night. I had to reset clocks timers and reboot the computer. I hope you are feeling better. Glorious day here. Tom does the READINGS at the Cathedral tomorrow. You waling? Take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Kathy. Florence Nightingale on duty. Weigh Russ record make sure he takes morning pills check and record blood pressure. It is still low. But he is home. Two more big things. The growth on his adrenal gland and the blocked artery in his leg. Oh the joys of being a senior citizen. I must be stronger than I think as I am taking all this in stride Some of mu bulbs I thought had died are showing signs of life. I guess our Winter is over high 70's every day. How are things with you. I hope well. A PT coming at 10 to work with Russ. Better they are coming here than going to a rehab. I hope you have a wonderful day. HUGS,Reed

Hi Kathy, I'm still just dragging along, I think I too am having a lot more trouble than usual with the time change. that geneology thing sounds like it might spark something - I think boredom is the opposite of curiousity. (sp)I love going to the library, I like to look at the cookbooks especially. the buttonholes sound like a winning idea. do you have the "keyhole" type with the big rounded thing at one end? I'm thinking that might hold up better. are you making the shower curtain from one fabric, or pieced? we're making some simple tops for charity quilts from a pattern called "Chinese coins" that would make a great shower curtain. I guess you probably don't have many scraps though like I do. yesterday I asked the guild members to please share their stash with us making quilts of valor and quilts for Project Linus.

Good Morning,Kathy. To me things are not that much better but they push you out with a BP of 89.36. He looked good in the hospital. Today he has no energy or zip. Waling kills me. His BP was 90/55. His Cumadan way too high so he has to back this morning. I hope the physical therapists who come can help him with his walking. I am exhausted. My BG 104. How are things with you? You been waling? The weather everywhere has been good althugh some states got a blizzard. Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed
