For a couple of weeks I have had some seriously high BP readings but after two visits and one more phone call to the doctor we seem to have found the plan that is working for me. New meds on Friday and an increase of an old med and readings dro... Read more
Struggling with BP
Tuesday, July 07, 2015      9 comments

My BP has been under control for years but last week I learned it has been a little higher than normal and I feel frustrated. I'm losing weight, exercising and eating right so why did it decide to do this now? I'm heading back to the doc... Read more
Have I finally learned my lesson???

I had to go to the doctor this past week for a sinus infection and was very surprised to see my BP was high. I do take medication but it has been under control for a long time. I remembered and confessed up that the day before I had eaten pota... Read more

This morning we woke up to temps of 59/F - hooray! BUT it is the day we will be leaving the cabin to head back to Florida. We can look forward to coming back in a month or so. I'll do my best on exercise today and am aiming for 60 minutes... Read more
Too hot for anything
Thursday, June 25, 2015      7 comments

The heat wave has come to the mountains this week. We have seen temps in the 90's and we don't see it that hot very often. Fortunately it is only that hot for a couple of hours and then the temp goes down some. I watched an old movie today an... Read more

Another cloudy day in the mountains. I walked this morning with Leslie so I have an hour of exercise in already and will try the stationary bike later. I'm thinking of making some mac and cheese today. I have some left over chicken we can fin... Read more
Summer has come to the mountains

It has been really warm here this week. The good part is that it starts to cool off about 3 p.m. and the humidity is very low. I can still be out on the back deck most of the morning and late in the afternoon. I like to ride my bike there as ... Read more
Getting ready...

We're having company next week. It always makes me feel so excited! One of the things on the "to do" list is to get rid of all (or most!) of the cobwebs. Living in the wooded mountains it is a constant job. DH sprays the house inside and out... Read more
Rainy days in the mountains...

We've had some heavy rain off and on for the last few days. It does not deter me from exercise. Here at the cabin I have two flights of stairs and that in itself can be a workout - 10 minutes up and down definitely gets the heart rate up. I a... Read more

My daughter received a grant for an art history class in Rome! Over the last few months we have talked about how we could work out bringing her DD (our DGD) to Rome. Yesterday we booked the flights and then we booked a 14 day cruise from Venic... Read more
Cabin time
Monday, April 27, 2015      6 comments

Yesterday we did the 9 hour drive to the cabin. It is always a pleasure to be here until we begin to unload the car and have to bring all those things up at least one full flight of stairs. If it is something we need upstairs that means anothe... Read more
My red blouse.....
Sunday, March 29, 2015      7 comments

I have had a beautiful red blouse for a couple of years. I bought it one year after Christmas on sale and I wore it once or twice but somehow (who knows why???) it got a little snug so it got shoved to the back of the closet. This morning whil... Read more
Still looking
Thursday, March 26, 2015      6 comments

We found one condo that we like but the owners were there and she was in bed after some surgery and he would not stop talking so it was hard to look around. We may go back and take another look if we decide we are interested. We are now lo... Read more
Condo shopping again...
Tuesday, March 24, 2015      6 comments

Today we are looking at a few more condos in our designated area. Condos are still fairly reasonable in this area and we lived not far from there for almost 20 years so we are comfortable there. This would allow us to spend most of the year at... Read more
