Good morning. It is very slippery out there because we had freezing rain yesterday and that is not good. I have to go out today to my pulmonary doctor appointment and not looking forward to it. I think it would be good to have ice skates. LOL. A little warmer today and snow moving in again for tonight. Yesterday I did my 30 minutes of walking and had a total of 5,761 steps for the day. I made a loaf of rye bread that turned out delicious and a nice hamburger/egg noodle casserole that was very good. I seemed to keep moving because I was able to get to my 5,000 steps again so that was good. Hope everyone has a good day today.

Good morning. It is clear and cold this morning. The wind is down so not a lot of blowing snow. I am all dug out now but there sure is a lot of snow out there. Yesterday I did pretty good. I got 4 loads of laundry done and walked for 30 minutes and had a total of 6,063 steps for the day, I felt better about it. We did have to cancel Hailleys haircut but she will get it today. She sure needs it. Her skin is bad again so back to the bleach baths. They sure seem to help. It will be easier to see what is what when she gets the hair cut. I sure donít know more I can do for her. I plan to sit back this evening and just relax to see in the new year. I will probably fall asleep before it comes. LOL. Have a Happy New Year whatever you do.

Good morning. Well the storm is winding down. We had over a foot of snow and there are some 4 foot drifts out there and the wind is still blowing. Some of the interstates are still closed and flights are cancelled. My son was over last night and did some clean up and will be back later today. He wanted to make sure that Hailley could get out the back door. Too Nice. I walked 30 minutes yesterday and had a total of 5,193 steps for the day. I would like to have a week where I was in the 5,000 steps a day. I guess we will see. I sure hope we donít see a lot more snow for a while because we are getting to where we donít have any where to put the snow. A good January thaw is needed so the snow will settle. We still have a long time till spring, I always love a good storm but not when we already have so much snow on the ground. LOL. Sounds like we will now start getting back into the colder weather. I am ready for this winter to end.

Jane, I sure didn't expect it to be something that would be soon as I know what you are currently dealing with. I just was wondering if it was the type of problem that would later on warrant replacement.

Good morning on the Sunday morning. We are in the second day of snowfall and the wind is picking up. It is a beautiful winter wonderland out there with lots of white snow and the lights reflecting off the snow light up the night. Today is supposed to be full on blizzard with very high winds and with the amount of snow we have already received it will be a good day to stay in and enjoy some quiet time. Yesterday I walked for 30 minutes and had a total of 4,620 steps for the day. I did get my garbage and recycles out to the bins and went out and filled all the birdfeeders and the bird bath with water. The birds and critters should all be happy now. Hailley didnít have a hard time this morning getting out because the wind must be blowing in a different way so it didnít block In the door yet. One of lifeís small pleasures. LOL. Hope you all have good Sunday.

Jane, is the hip something that is bad enough to talk about replacement.

Sharon, I like the wet and not so wet of the tropics.

Hip is hurting off and on. I find when I am driving and having to use the brake or even keep my foot on the gas it ends up hurting. I try to use the automatic speed whenever possible so I can put my foot down.

Jane

Good morning. Here it is the weekend and it is snowing. It wasnít supposed to start till this afternoon but wow is it coming down. We are supposed to get up to 16 inches of wet snow and tomorrow the wind will come up along with the snow so it will be blizzard conditions through Monday, Doesnít sound good to me. I am glad that Tina got groceries for me yesterday. I got 20 minutes of walking yesterday and only 3,896 steps. It was a bad breathing day so didnít get much done. Today needs to be a better day. I will try do an exercise video to get a little more upper body exercise. Hope you all have a great weekend,.

Jane, yes it will come and I hope we have a nice spring this year. Last year we had winter and summer and we missed spring and fall. It was a strange year for us. We can complain all we want about the weather but I wouldn't change a thing, I love my 4 seasons,

Good morning. Well, my son-in-law was over and shoveled the snow for me so that is done again but we have a blizzard warning in effect on Saturday through Monday so some nasty weather ahead of us. They havenít predicted how much snow yet but hope it isnít too much. I am already tired of the snow and would like to see some green grass again. It has been a hard winter already. Yesterday I did 30 minutes of walking and had 4,349 total steps for the day. I didnít do anything but walk and my back is better today so that is good. I will try do a few small things today. I feel energized so I will take advantage of it while it lasts. LOL. Hope your day is good today.

Sharon a snow storm does not sound good. Hope it is a false alarm.

My right hip has been hurting lately around where the leg attaches. It hurts to put my foot on the brake especially sitting with the foot on the brake for a long time. There was an accident that had the cars backed up on my way home this afternoon. grrrr

Well, the big day is over and now we can sit back and relax until next week with New Years. I donít do much for New years. It has been a long time since I have made it till the ball drops so donít even watch. I like to just kick back and watch taped shows and catch up on the taped shows. We had a nasty layer of ice on the sidewalks and roads yesterday and then it snowed a little over an inch last night so it is dangerous walking out there. We might get a storm coming in over the weekend. Yesterday was great. I didnít do well with steps but did walk for 20 minutes and had 3,772 total steps for the day,. I ran out of air while at my daughters and thank goodness it was time to leave anyway so we left and I got home okay. Dinner was so good. There was so much food and it all was so good. Hope you all had a great day.

Wow, Jane, that sounds really interesting. I bet it was nice to see,

I have not done much today. This after noon we had a solar eclipse but the moon did not completely cover the sun. So it was called a ring of fire. I poked a small hole in a lightweight cardboard, turned my back on the sun and moon and saw the eclipse on my car. During the complete eclipse the moon was a black spot surrounded by a bright light and the sky was dark for the time of day. This will not happen here again for about thirty years.

Good morning and to all who celebrate this day have a very Merry one. We will get some snow tonight and maybe some icy drizzle first. I hope we donít get the drizzle. Yesterday was one of those days. I had my doctors appointment at 9:30 and everything is good so relief there. I then came home and made my salads for today and got some recycles out to the bin. My back was really bothering me by then so decided a nap was a good idea. I had a total of 3,212 steps for the day so not too good but much better than nothing. Today I hope to do better. I will be at my daughters with all the family today so that will be nice. Enjoy the day.

Good morning. Today will be a grey day and a little cooler. We have snow moving in tonight. I have a doctors appointment to have a mole on my back checked out this morning so need to get ready for that. Yesterday was not a good day but that is okay. It hasnít been so bad for a while now so donít feel too bad about it and do feel better today. I only was able to walk for 10 minutes and had 3,096 total steps for the day. Breathing was bad but back was sore so did end up taking a muscle relaxer and pain pill at bedtime. Hope that did the trick. I will make my salads today so the flavors can blend by tomorrow. Hope you all have a great Christmas eve or are with friends or family.

Jane, so glad the back stopped hurting. I think you sent it my way. My back is sore and even needed a pain pill last night.

Good morning. It will start to cool down a little today but not too bad. We are now in count down mode with Christmas just a couple days away. I will boil my eggs and get some of the stuff ready for my salads today. Yesterday was a little tougher day but I still got 30 minutes walking with a total of 5,121 steps for the day,. I made some potato soup to go along with my rye bread and it was so good. I did watch some tv and read some and took it a little easier for the day. Hope this is a good week. Enjoy your Monday.

Jane, sorry that you are in so much pain and unable to get out to shop. I woke early this morning too and it makes me so upset when I can't go back to sleep. I have a spot in my back that wants to spasm so taking it a little easy too.

I had trouble sleeping last night. I often wake up during the night, use the toilet and go right back to sleep. Last night I woke up several times with the last being about 4:00 a.m. and then woke up at 8:20 a.m. I had planned to get my GGD a gift today but my back hurt too much to drive. Tomorrow is the 24th.

Good morning. It will be another lovely day with temps in the 30ís. I will take every one we get. Our days will now start to get longer and the winter will start to fade into the past. I am already looking forward to spring and getting back outside. We usually have a lovely January thaw where temps get in the 40ís and I am looking forward to that. Yesterday was a good day with 30 minutes of walking and 6,076 total steps for the day. I did make it into the 6,000 numbers and that sure feels good. I baked a loaf of dark pumpernickel bread and made some great baked pork chops and potatoes au gratin. It was so good and kept me moving during the day. I also got the recycles and garbage out to the bins. I hope that I can have as good a day today. Enjoy your Sunday.

This year the shortest days in Toronto, Ontario, Canada go from Dec. 19th to Dec. 23rd with only 8 hrs. 55 min.(and seconds) of daylight. On Dec. 24th, they start to increase - very slowly at first - starting at 8hrs. 56 min. I believe the closer to the Arctic the less hours of daylight.

The shortest days on Guam this year are the odd days starting December 15 - 29, 2019. They are 11 hours 19 minutes long. Go figure!

Happy Winter!!!



Winter arrived at 11:19 p.m. EST last night and the darkest time of the year is almost behind us with daylight starting to lengthen today - even if it's only for a few seconds at the beginning, pretty soon we'll be noticing it getting brighter in the evening - woohoo!!!

Good morning. It will be a little warmer today and that sounds so good. It will be partly cloudy and in the 20s. Yesterday was not quite as active. I walked for 20 minutes and had 4,235 total steps for the day. I did get the bathroom cleaned so am happy about that. I spent a lot of the day waiting for the person who delivers my oxygen to come so I could help him with the door. I like to be able to open the door for him so he doesnít have such a hard time getting the tank in. Today I hope to get more done and get my steps back in the 5,000 figures. Hope you all have a good day,.

Polyps will be removed and then a different chemo will be used because I am allergic to the one used before.

Good morning. It is -2F. this morning and temperature is rising. It was much colder around midnight. We are now starting our warming trend and it will be about 15F. today. It looks like it will be sunny but will be breezy. Yesterday I did walk 30 minutes and had a total of 5,108 steps for the day. I have done a little better with the steps so far this week. Hope it continues to improve. I am going to try do a chair yoga video today along with my walking. I also want to get some cleaning done. Barb brought dinner last night and I chose to have Chicken Parmesan and it was so good, She had a sausage type pasta and of course she left me the leftovers so have enough food leftover for the rest of the week. Hailleys skin is looking good and her leg looks good so we are all good on this home front.

Jane, so sorry to hear this. My prayers will be with you.

I have not gotten notices from this team so checked and found this set of posts.

I am having a rough time these last weeks.
I am going to have to make some major decisions soon about what to do from what the urologist found in my bladder. There are two tiny polyps near the mouth of the urethra. I will see the cancer doctor tomorrow and discuss the results with him and then need to make decision of having the polyps removed, chemo, or polyps removed and chemo. I have had two polyps removed in the past so I have an idea of what to expect. Definite time of prayer.

Jane

Good morning on this cold Sunday morning. It is -8 right now and will get colder. We will be very cold the next couple of days and then a little warming trend for a few days. I look forward to the 20ís. Yesterday I walked for 30 minutes and had a total of 4,735 steps for the day. I didnít do much except read and watch some tv shows that were taped. It was a me day,. Today I will need to get something done. I feel like making some rye bread so I might do that. I know I wonít be going out in the cold. Looks like we will be snow free for the next couple of days too. Hope you enjoy your Sunday.

Ladybug, Christmas is a tiring time of year. There is just so much to do. I do love the season though.

Good morning. The sun is shining and there is only a light breeze. It is only 6 degrees F. so not warm but the sun makes it look so nice. It reflects off the white snow and is beautiful. Yesterday was a little better. I did 20 minutes of walking and had a total of 3,754 steps for the day. That was better than Saturday so that is good. I am feeling pretty good today and hoping to get some things done. My son was over and cleaned out the driveway and sidewalks so Hailley is able to get out to go potty again. It looks like we got about 12 inches of snow. Hope you all are having a good day.


Nas, I have never used a Tens machine but I agree with Val. You should ask your doctor about it.

Don't know of anyone who uses the Tens machine. What does your medical practitioner think about it?

Wow, we say it every year at this time, where did the year go? Yup, we're into the last month of 2019 and even though it's the month of "good cheer" with lots of diversions let's still give it our best and continue to work toward our healthy living goals - indeed it's the best gift we can give ourselves!! Happy December!!!

I have been having some tough days so have been a little quiet. Yesterday I only did 10 minutes of walking with a total of 3,544 steps for the day. I will take back the only because I did walk and did move as much as I could so I have to say it was a good day. We did get a snow storm yesterday and I believe we had at least 10 to 12 inches of snow and it did blow around. I need to wait for the guys to come shovel me out as it is almost impossible for Hailley to get outside the back door to go potty but she is a little trooper and makes do. I hope to get a few little things done today and improve my walking time. That is my goal for today. Hope you all have a good Sunday and first day of December. It is a new month and hoping a better month.

Nas, so sorry to hear you are in so much pain. Hope it lets up soon.
