Good morning. The sun is shining and it is not too windy right now. Sounds like that will change as the day goes on. Yesterday was a pretty good day. I walked 30 minutes and had a total of 5,254 steps for the day. I got two loads of blankets washed and did made a loaf of Banana Date Pecan bread and it is really pretty good. Hailley is walking good and her skin looks good so we are happy. Hope it stays that way for her. I know she must feel a lot better and the weight she lost after the prednisone should help her legs too. Well, off to see what I can do today.. Have a good one.

LittleRedHen, I do have a bread machine but only use the dough cycle. I like to bake my bread in the oven. I find I like the shape better.

@MISSA526 Keep us informed of how things go with your knee. Are you over your migraines? When it rains-it pours! Try to have a good day through your pain.

@DEE107 What are you knitting?


@SHARONCAPPS Do you bake your bread in the oven or do you have a bread machine? I think @PBVHCCVH likes to make different breads also. There are many different kinds of flours now, very surprising.

Good morning. It is cooler than expected this morning but not too bad. It will be sunny and we will have above freezing temperatures again today. I will like that. It is melting some of the snow on my deck so maybe I will be able to get to the birdbath to fill it. Yesterday I walked 20 minutes and had a total of 4,144 steps for the day. I did a few things around the house and Barb brought dinner last night. We had a nice chat and she picked up some rye flour for me. Boy is it hard to find that. None of the stores around here have rye flour but they have all of these other weird kinds of flour. I guess that bread baking is not what it used to be anymore and that is sad. I love to make my own bread. Well, hereís hoping you all have a good Wednesday.

LittleRedHen, I just walk around the house. I would like to be into the 5,000 steps by the end of the month.

Good morning. It is going to be sunny today and might even get to 33 degrees and have a little bit of thawing on the roads. It will also settle the snow and that will be good. Yesterday was a pretty good day. I walked for 20 minutes and had a total of 4,615 steps. That is better than the day before and every day I increase my steps makes me happy. I did 4 loads of laundry and did some other little things around the house. Hailley got her hair cut and her skin looks pretty good. I am happy for that because her hair was pretty log. He leg seems to be much better too and since she isnít going up or down the stairs she has really improved. Life is good. Hope your day is good.

Karen, I don't use the pee sheets. I open the back door as far as I can and she just goes in the deep snow. The kids try and get here as soon as possible to at least get the back door open for her.

Good evening team:

I thought I would pop in and say hello. I overdo it doing volunteer work. My back let me know I can't do that anymore. I will think twice before I overextend myself again.

We do not have snow but the sky sure looks like we might get it any minute.

I will get out today. Bank, library & store...maybe stop by for some Chinese for lunch.

I turned my TV on & it looks like the cable company is trying to restore my DVR system but it has not yet happened. I have a feeling it might not happen. I hope it does because I have the last 4 episodes of THIS IS US.

SHARON..Glad you are feeling better today. Ya for sunshine. Does Hailey use the pee sheets on bad weather days? My dog did.

Hope it is a good day for all of you

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.

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.

Karen, sorry you were so tired but it is good to know when our body needs a rest and nothing wrong with resting it. Hope you are better today,.

Well, Thanksgiving is over and I am stuffed and full of good food. I enjoyed my day and had a fairly good breathing day so all was well. I walked for 30 minutes and had 4,204 total steps for the day. I was able to come home and relax and watch a few taped shows and rest in my chair. Hailley was glad to have the extra attention and so all is well with the world. We will have a snow storm move in tonight and we could get up to a foot of snow with lots of blowing and drifting. Hope that it doesnít happen. Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving day and that you will enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Karen, I have just started to take calcium and I think I will just do that with the vitamin D3 and see if that is good. I might not go with any of the drugs for osteoperosis because I have heard that they cause brittle bones.

Hope it has been a Happy Thanksgiving for you. We had 28 people at my daughters. It was a lovely carry-in meal.

Sharon, I see my Rheumy Dr this week & will have the bone density test. I expect to be in the osteoporosis stage too. Will have to research Fosomax.

Happy Thanksgiving to all those that celebrate and to those that donít hope you have a wonderful day. We will be storm free today but then a storm will move in tomorrow night and we could get up to 8 inches of blowing and drifting snow through the weekend. Hope it isnít that much. Yesterday I got my salads made and I did walk 30 minutes and had a total of 5,256 steps for the day. It was a pretty good breathing day and I did some small chores around the house. I got my reports back and the spots on my thyroid have not changed so they are not worried about them and the dexa scan shows that I now have moving into the osteoperosis phase of my life, I have not emailed back about starting on medicine as of yet but will have to make up my mind. A little worried about it because I have heard some nasty stuff about the meds. Anyone here on Fosamax or something like it. I am ready to go to my daughters for Thanksgiving dinner and will enjoy my day today. Hope you all enjoy yours and eat lots of turkey.

Sharon... It is very windy here too. Power is out in a community near me. I have 2 large pans waiting to be filled with mac & cheese. My IBS has decided to flair up but hopefully I will get to the kitchen this afternoon. Yes, I am a mess but life is still good.

Hope you all doing ok today!

Today is a very windy day with light snow flurries and colder and cloudy. I will be getting my salads ready for dinner tomorrow and trying to get some small projects around the house done. Yesterday I only walked for 10 minutes but stayed busy with my test appointments at the clinic and around the house, I had a total of 4,234 steps for the day,. Barb brought dinner last night and we had a great chat so that was nice. Hope you all have a good day.

The car is back to running good!

It is overcast today & 46 degrees. High wind watch for tomorrow. Perhaps a higher pain day. I will try to get some prep done today so my Mac & cheese has a head start.

Last night I watched DANCING WITH THE STARS. I wanted to see how former AMERICAN IDOL contestant Alana did. They all danced great. The VOICE is getting down to top 10 with many great singers. Anyone watching it?

I need to go get my cheese & milk for my mac & cheese. Wonder how busy the store will be? Probably not as busy as Wednesday. It is warming up today so will be good to get out.

Sharon...Did you get the muffins & bread made? How is Hailey doing? I sometimes wish I had a puppy again. I would get one that does not shed. The breed starts with an S & has a Z ...the Spark will not let me say the name. It thinks it is profanity.

It is Sunday and will be the last of our real mild days. The weather will start to cool down every day now and we will have an active pattern of light snow flurries and rain/snow mix over the next 10 days. I guess it is time. I think today will be a day where I do my walking and get some rest. I have little things I would like to do. I want to make bread and also would like to make some cranberry muffins. Yesterday I did walk 40 minutes and had a total of 5,554 steps for the day. I did do some small chores that needed doing so felt pretty good. Hope you all have a good Sunday.

LittleRedHen, yes, stress is hard on me. It changes my breathing and makes things very tough for me so try not to let stress get to me.

Good morning. It has been a bad couple of days for Hailley. On Wednesday, out of the blue, she just started to cry and hold her little leg up and I have never heard her cry before, Even when she hurt her other leg last year she didnít cry. I her and she was shaking so we cuddled most of the rest of the day, Tina got her an appointment for yesterday so we went to the vet. She was walking better and seemed better but I was still worried. The vet determined no broken bones and probably more like a sprain in the shoulder but she was definitely in pain so they prescribed 8 days of pain meds and told me to walk her and if she would let me to do the therapy on her leg. She seems to be improving and I am glad I took her in. I havenít done much walking or anything but hold her and cuddle with her. Now it is time to get back to it and we both need to move. I do have good news about her that since we have been changing her diet for the skin problem she has lost weight and is now 6.6 pounds and the vet is happy with her weight. That is better for her little lets too. Skin looks good.

I had a wonderful relaxation massage today. She used CBD cream & I feel so good now. No aches or pains right now. Last night I went for tacos with my daughter & niece. We then went to see a movie. It has been years since I have been to the movie theater. It was $5.00 night which included a bag of popcorn. We saw Last Christmas. I enjoyed it even though I could not hear everything. The girls explained the story to me later.

It is a cloudy day today and we are expecting snow later in the day,. It will turn colder and blustery and not be a very nice day. I have to get my hair cut later in the day so hope it holds off until I get that over with. Yesterday was not too bad a day. Breathing was good until late in afternoon and I walke 20 minutes and had a total of 4,286 steps for the day. Hoping for more today. I got some small decluttering projects done and got out and cleaned up the dog doo and filled all the feeders. It felt good to get that done. Hope you all have a good day today.

Glad that you were able to get the car started Karen. Hope you figure it out before you get into too much trouble and get stranded.

It was so nice to get my hair cut & set. I went to CVS before the cut & came out to a dead battery. I was able to walk to my hair cut salon & then called AAA. I was surprised when a young gal came shortly & jumped my battery & home I came. I am going to try to start my car in a few minutes. I may need a new battery. We shall see.

The CVS store was just a few feet from the salon & I had parked under a huge store light so the gal was able to charge my battery without any trouble. It was starting to get cold but I had my gloves so it was ok.

Today will be a cloudy but no wind day. Temps sound like they will be in the normal range in the 30ís. We are at 38 right now. Yesterday was a nice day and we didnít get any rain and it was sunny. I got 4 loads of laundry done and did walk for 10 minutes. I had a total of 3,316 counted steps. I got my new counter later in the afternoon. I am so happy to have that back. It is amazing how many times I checked my wrist for the darn thing and how much I missed it. Hailley seems to be doing okay after her fall and doesnít seem to be too sore. Thank goodness. I need to get out and feed birds and squirrels today and pick up dog doo and fill bird baths again. The weather will start to change again tomorrow and so I want to get it done.

Here it is another Monday and the weekend is behind us. It was a mixed weather type weekend with some sunshine and some clouds but temps were pretty nice. Today we might have some snow flurries and cloudy. Yesterday my poor Hailley fell down the stairs going to the back door and I was so scared that she had injured her shoulder again but I think she is going to be okay. She did hurt the other leg and it seemed tender but not too bad and it didnít seem to be in the shoulder area. I guess it is time to start carrying her down the stairs. I already carry her up the stairs so not a problem. Today she seems to be walking with very little limp so will keep an hour on her and continue to do a little therapy on it. If it isnít one thing it is another. LOL. Didnít get much done but did a few little things. Today will be much better.


It is good to know that there are others with this problem. I know on my copd groups they all seem to have the same problem so we are not alone.

@SHARONCAPPS. I, too, have COPD and have more problems when fronts move in. Humidity affects me, too! Enjoy the football today!

It is Sunday and going to be cloudy, cool and windy. Maybe a little drizzle or snow. A good day to sit back and watch some football. I have some things to do before I settle in for the day and hope I can get them done. Yesterday was a pretty good breathing day. I did 40 minutes of walking and some other small chores around the house. Stayed busy. I am done with my meds and hope now to start feeling better. I still have a lot of tight mucus but maybe it will loosen now. Hope everyone has a good Sunday.


LittleRedHen, It is bad when a front is moving in. Like rain or snow. Also humidity is a factor. I am told the barometric pressure has a lot to do with breathing for those of us with copd.

Good morning, I am waking up to warmer temperatures and sun but it is breezy. It will turn to rain/snow mix later today. I am feeling better this morning and hope it continues through the day. Yesterday was terrible. I was only able to walk for 10 minutes and I sure do miss my step counter because I feel like I am lost without it. A new one should be here by Tuesday. My breathing was so bad yesterday and that was my problem I had no energy and it was hard to just get out of my chair but oh so much better today. Weather sure does affect my copd. Hailley loves when I am in the chair so that is a plus for her. LOL.. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

I slept late this morning. It is a pretty normal Friday at my place. Nothing new going on & no plans for the weekend.

Sharon..I am glad Hailey is not getting any more hot spots.

It is going to warm up to the 40's next week!

@SHARONCAPPS It's terrible when a tracker breaks! You must feel lost!!! I know I do when it happens to me. I might not do much, but seeing the numbers does make a difference! Hope you get things figured out!

It's half way through the month--Are you on track on meeting your goals so far for the month? It's never too late on working on a Healthier lifestyle!

Hope everyone has a fun filled day and weekend!

Going to be another nice day. Temps will be warmer and it will be cloudy. Yesterday was beautiful and got into the low 40ís. I was extremely short of breath so took it easy. I did walk for 20 minutes but not sure what steps were as my tracker band broke and I wasnít able to count my steps. A New one is ordered and on the way. I feel naked without it and hate not being able to see how I am doing. I canít remember not being able to see my steps. Hailley seems to still be doing pretty good and not noticing many hot spots on her and able so far to keep them at bay with the Neosporin ointment. Hope you all have a good weekend.

Good morning. It has warmed up a little and will be windy again today but maybe a little sunshine off and on. There is also some snow flurries for the day. We did get a dusting of snow again last night. Yesterday I didnít do well with the walking but got 20 minutes and had a total 4,101 total steps for the day,. I did get to the doctor and things are looking good on the health front. He did feel I was going through and exacerbation so he put me on a Z-pak and 5 days of prednisone. I know what has been said lately about the Z-pak but havenít had any problems with it before so will not worry about it. They all seem to have bad side effects so it is a toss up. I can already feel that the prednisone is opening the airways up which he said were really tight so that helps. I am still short of breath and didnít realize I had a low grade fever so something was brewing. He is so good because he sat with us for a good 45 minutes and answered all my questions and elaborated on a lot of things also. He is a good doctor. I will not be having any more colonoscopies unless there are symptoms that need exploring. Hope you all have a good day.

Sharon...your bread sounds great!

We got several inches of snow & more coming. The snow is pretty to look at! It is suppose to reach 24 today. Schools are closed. I worry about those that have to drive on slick road, especially my granddaughter who took a factory job about 20 miles from town.

I cancelled my massage appointment & am thankful I can pay my utility bill on line. It is worth the dollar fee to not have to go out today.

Stay warm everyone!

@SHARONCAPPS you are doing a great job with your exercise!
Your bread is a very different one. Lots of ingredients!
Hope your appointment goes well!
Winter temps have arrived here. No snow but wind chills going to go down to single digits. Not as cold as you. But cold for here.

It is going to be about -1 or -2 degrees F. this morning but will warm to the 20ís with partly cloudy but windy for the day. It is cold. We have some snow on the ground now and it looks like it might stay now. Yesterday was a fair day and I walked 45 minutes with a total of 6,368 steps for the day. I made some banana buttermilk chocolate chip bread. It turned out pretty good. A also did a few other little things around the house. Today is my doctor appointment so will cut this short so I can get ready and get a couple walks in before going. Hope you all have a good day.

Good morning. Here we are on another Sunday. Cold today and windy. The Vikings play tonight so I know what I will be doing this evening. Yesterday we did get some light snow and it was cool. I did 35 minutes of walking and had a total of 4,629 steps for the day. I was short of breath again so didnít get as much done as I wanted to but did get a few little things done. Hope today is a good day too.

Today will be a warmer day with some sunshine but it will be a little more windy. I am hoping to get groceries and get a few things done around here. Yesterday was a fairly nice day with sunshine. It was cool but not too windy. I walked 25 minutes and had 4,104 total steps for the day. I did get a few little things done and watched some of my taped shows. I might just get caught up if I am not careful.

LittleRedHen, I have COPD with emphysema, bronchitis and asthma. It makes breathing very hard for me,. ,

I don't expect to go out today. I cooked ground beef last night so will use it in a recipe later.

My great granddaughter has a school project of making a book in honor of someone special. She has chosen my daughter (her gma) & asked me to share pictures & write a letter to my daughter. I am going to look for pictures this afternoon. My daughter will be so happy to be chosen as SOMEONE SPECIAL.

@SHARONCAPPS there is nothing wrong with a rest day!!
I'm glad you had a nice visiting evening with a nice supper. It's always nice when someone else does the cooking.
You said you had trouble with breathing. Do you have a breathing condition?
It's chilly here in 30' & 40's. Glad we haven't had as low as you-yet.
Raining here.
Have a nice evening!

Today will be another cool day, we are at 7 right now, but with sunshine and light wind it will warm to about 28. I am hoping to do better today. Yesterday was a very tired day and I didnít do anything but rest. Not a good breathing day. Barb did bring dinner so it was a nice evening with lots of good visiting going on. I always love my night with her. Hailley loves the lazy days and she loves to sleep next to me in the chair. Hope all have a good day.

Here's the "inspiration" spot. :)

I started doing art about 5 years ago. I'm happy to say that at the last art festival, 5 of my 6 pieces found new homes at the sale! I also have a few pieces at a local arts shop - to benefit our local library, and donate drawings etc. to benefit wildlife and Humane Society organizations. (If you don't have a lot of cash, you can get creative with how you support charities!)

Here's one (actually a set of 3 11x17 pieces) I did to support a horse rescue auction!

Good morning. It is going to be windy and cold today. The sun will come out later so that will be nice. Yesterday I did 40 minutes walking and had a total of 5,622 steps for the day. I felt fairly good and breathing was a little better. I did some small chores around the house and hope to do better today. Didnít sleep too well last night so hope I can make it through the day without falling asleep in my chair. LOL. Oh well, a little nap never hurt anyone.
