I lost another pound. That is a lot of water. You would think with all of the flooding and torrential rains we have here, it would be the other way around...

I always like to read about different things people do to adjust to their conditions. IT is so different for everybody, but we can take what we need and use it for a better way for ourselves. Thank you again James.

Now it is Monday. Don't know what I'll do today. Maybe work on a flower bed. I have all the materials (wood, and posts and stuff). Its not raining, its not cold, ... I've got no excuse.

... My own diabetes things these days, I'm upping my vitamin B complex. I should take these this supplement everyday, but just never seem to get in the habit. I'm pretty sure in my case that I've got low B12 (and who knows what else). This vitamin B stuff can be important for blood sugar regulation, I'm pretty sure I can see the difference in my personal testing.

Like here:
www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/sh
ow/NCT025
40642


Anyway metformin messes with B12 levels, and extra B12 is good to counteract that. Some web pages that I found said B12 alone wasn't much help, but B12 with B6, etc. etc. ... I'm taking a B complex supplement (a broad range of different B vitamins).

It is getting to the point where I need to trim the hair that is starting to grow over my ears.

Probably better if my wife does that, she just has a better view than I do in a mirror. Plus of course if she messes up, better than if I mess up on myself, because she can't blame me for a bad job.

More painting today. Interior front door. Then maybe some trim.

Stay healthy everyone!

Is everybody okay? It would be nice if you checked in so we know how you are doing. Even the lurkers..
We continue to Velcro home except to pick up DD Rx's or essentials from the store during senior hours for me at Kroger.

We are blessed to have a friend who made us some masks..

How are you all doing with no access to your usual appointments? Doc, hair, dental, car, etc?
I had a dental appointment for yesterday, a foot doc appointment for Thursday. Their phones just had a busy signal when I called...kind of ironic,huh? emoticon

PICKIE,
we bought a pair of hair shears a few weeks ago. Haven't used them yet, but its getting close.

I remember when I was young, probably 3 or 4 years old, ... and I do have a few memories from that early in my life, and a memory from around that time was noticing that I couldn't see her ears because of her hair. I remember asking her if she could hear me, and probably I remember the moment because she laughed so hard, and said that she could hear me.

I won't have to cut my hair to hear better, ... but I will need my wife to do some work on my hair soon.
