How is February more than 1/2 over? The long winter has made it seem very s-l-o-w to me, and yet here we are!

Up fairly early today to get protein in early. My "holiday" weight finally went back to 125 today. So grateful to know that with ju

Good Thursday morning! Up at 4:45 am today, for who knows what reason. I did get a lot of prep work down for the quarterly newsletter at church, and reminded people about deadlines. Had a nice morning with my DH, and while its cold, it's sunny for a c

Good morning on what once was celebrated as Abe Lincoln's birthday, if you're as old as me!

Good morning! Although I was up very early, I got side tracked doing a meaningless (except for my own interest) a project; not particularly a cheery one, and since its not due for 2 years in June, I think maybe I just wanted to sidetrack.

Good morning! Crazy weather continues with a high of 79 expected today, but only 48 on Saturday. Not only do I not know what to wear in the morning, the weather is making my curly hair absolutely insane!

Late doing on line things today -- church at 8 am, pick up for the bread ministry we do (after church), much needed coffee (not til 10:30!) Happy dogs - we weren't gone long, but in dog-time, it was forever.

Feeling off today -- I've had weird

Good morning! For some reason we are both up early and are now ready to go back to sleep but the day has started so NO. Our schizo weather has gone from 19 on Wednesday to a prediction of 70 by next Thursday. And then cold again. SO no matter what th

Oh my! January is almost gone! And I've been up since 4 am for some ridiculous reason - we weren't going to Mass till 11 am. I've made coffee, fed the indoor birds, answered some emails, journaled, and had my premier protein. I'm trying to do very

Good morning! NC hit its high of 46 this morning, and the low will drop to 18 today. Totally not SE winter weather. High winds mess with my vertigo even in the house!

Half of January is over! Oh my. It's a good thing I don't make resolutions since this is apparently the day people give them up.

NC is cold and rainy - colder than usual. We DID go to Planet Fitness yestQatererday and I did 30 minutes, but i

Tuesday has been a slow shaky start for me.

Yesterday was great - I managed unbreaded chicken parm (baked) with a tiny bit of angel hair. Had the leftovers today and it was rack and ruin! Aagh.

Friday! But for retired people it's hard to tell. It's clear and cold this morning. I have another project to start, but am feeling a bit languid -- I think its the major medication change. My DH reminded me it takes about 2 weeks to get used to cha

Good morning! Been up watching the ocean this morning; our last full day down here. Yesterday was perfect for ocean sailing, so friends got out the sailboat and it was quit a day!

I have a major medication change going on and was feeling gosh

Good morning! Rainy day at the beach, but temperate (last year we were here and it was in the low 20's).

We are spending 2 weeks with our friends down here; trying to make the best food choices and still enjoy our time. What a balancing act!

First, today marks the first entire year in the last 10 where I have not had a major hospitalization for something gosh awful. How wonderful is that? I do attribute it to my sleeve.

Good Sunday morning. We're in SC for a couple of weeks - temperate but rainy this morning.

We come every year to spend NYE with friends of over 60 years, so its always a good break from "retired".

Good morning! Ridiculously raining 1-3" today here in NC, and its cold and damp. Woke up early, so I must be getting over the cold I've been fighting for 7 days. Glad to be feeling better.

I saw my primary care physician yesterday (I've had

We woke up to a small snow here in NC, which of course is turning to freezing rain. It looks pretty, but then again, I fall down on dry floor! The white dog loved it; the dachshund just said "NO" and came back in.

I finally saw the ENT, who

Post holiday lesson. I can eat whatever I want, if I want to feel like crap. I had 4 potato chips and my stomach locked up like a fist! AND yes, I can have sweets but even though they don't cause weight gain, I felt dreadful.
