Hi everyone.

Well, I stopped taking the high blood pressure meds
and the swelling went down on my foot.

I have borderline high blood pressure.
It has been low most all my life.

I know my recent issue has been high sodium in my diet.
I love my homemade soups.
Even with using the low sodium broth, 
I must admit it tastes salty. And tasty. 
(Kerri slaps her own hand as she reaches for the soup spoon!)

So, I'm skipping the homemade soups for now
and going low sodium. 

Sunny and warm here, but with low humidity.
I cut some hot peppers off the pepper plants today.
I was going to use them in homemade soup. Sad

I think I will put them in an omelette instead.  

I can't complain about anything.
Life is good and I am happy.
Sending out hugs to everyone and wishing a lovely day.

Oh that's just sad. I have to admit I'm a salt addict. I don't like sweet things at all but salt will be my downfall probably. My blood pressure is fine for now but how long it will remain that way is anyone's guess. I'm terrible. I can't eat anything not plastered in salt.

We've had a week of rain and cool temps here and it's not looking like improving. Some of the rain has been torrential. Very odd weather for August. I think we're being paid back for actually having a bit of summer in July.

Weather is fairly warm here , but the humidity is very high, not to anyones liking .

I cook mostly without salt , add some if wanted later .   

Hello Kerri, and  Whisper  and Sandy , and missing Elaine of course .

Hi everyone.

Wendy, 
I hope the rain slows down there.
I think I am a salt addict, too. Smile

Geru, 
Hope the humidity there ends soon.
Autumn should be on its way now.

I went with my daughters and granddaughters
and grandson to The Bell Museum today.
It's a natural history museum and planetarium
through the University of Minnesota.
Even the baby seemed very interested
and had his curious face on. 

My granddaughter, Isabella, 
petted a live snake.
We had a fun time.

Hope everyone has a peaceful rest of the day.

Sounds like a wonderful place for kids. Educational and fun at the same time.

The rain has finally stopped. Probably not for long but it's great to see that yellow ball in the sky. A brief respite from the downpours. Lighter showers forecast for later and still only a max of 63F but a big improvement on recent weather.

I'm hoping for a lazy Sunday. A few small chores to do but then I'm going to relax before a busy few days coming up. I need to get my sister to trim my hair for me tomorrow so I can see where I'm going. Visitors next weekend so I'm enjoying the peace and quiet this one.

Good morning all Smile woke up at 4am and have almost finished catching up online. Then the dreaded windows update is due.

Gheez Wendy that was not nice having to spend your saved money on the roof fixing instead! Damn can't win can we?

Kerri your grand kids must feel so lucky to have you Smile

Hope the humidity has come down for you Geru.

We had a glorious Bank Holiday weekend. Got to 83F here and hotter further south. Then it dropped by 20 degrees and it's grey and showery and quite chilly. Windy too. Apart from those three days August has been miserable.

I've got Alfie here for about ten hours today and although he's quietened down a lot he's still keeping me on my toes and still hasn't got the message that the cat does not want to play with him. He moves to his new house next month so I won't see much of him after that. My niece will probably bring him to our Monday get togethers to play with Spencer whenever she has Monday off work but he won't be coming here anymore. Pippa will be happy. lol

Long labour day weekend here , weather is cooled down, 15c right now , but feels like 22 c because of the high humidity . Yuk, hate that humidity . Hair colouring day today ,hate that job ,but the colour gives my hair some body, much needed as it's so fine  , then it's  hair cut next week (that is  one thing I can't do for my self , wish I could ) .


Wendy; Alfie is keeping you on your toes I bet , trying to keep peace between the  cat and him ... lol  Glad you got that roof done before the rain arrived .


Kerri:   You  are one busy lady , don't know how you find time to do it all .  Hats off to you . Yes, I cook without salt , old hospital habit , don't like it much , as I like salt like we  all do , but you get used to eating that way . When I really crave it , I sprinkle on a little .


Sandy: I am feeling sorry for you with the pain of having to go off that med, keeping my fingers crossed for you . I hate meds of all kinds , they all have side affects , one must be so careful not to get on the bandwagon . Hope you make it off that stuff  , and find something less harmful to help you .


Hello to Elaine , where are you ?

Hello everyone.

Wendy, 
Glad you had a lovely bank holiday weekend.
Sorry the weather has betrayed after those beautiful days.

Geru, 
I know what you mean about the high humidity.
It can be so uncomfortable.

Hi Martha. Hi Sandy. Hi Elaine.

I spent the day with my family today.
Just relaxing now.

Sending positive wishes to everyone.
take care,
Kerri

What's Summer? Sad It's about 12C here and torrential rain. I just got soaked doing the grocery shop. The wipers were struggling to cope on the way home.

My daughter and her partner are arriving this afternoon for a couple of days. I won't be around tomorrow but should be back on Sunday.

Hi Kerri and Geru. Smile

I hope Sandy is OK. Nothing from her since she mentioned coming off those meds.

Hi everyone.

Yes. I, too, hope Sandy is Ok.
Waving to you Sandy if you drop by here!

Wendy, 
Have a nice visit with your daughter and her partner.
It's wonderful when family visit.
Then, nice to get back to normal when they go home. Smile 

I worked an 11 hour day today
so I'm quite tired.
My husband in is the hospital for some tests
and an MRI.
So I stopped to see him on the way home.

Now, I'm going to make a large salad
with fresh spinach, fresh tomatoes, shredded carrots, 
a few garbanzo beans, and some feta cheese
and call it dinner. 

It is 76F/24C and sunny today.
A nice day to open the windows
and let the breeze come in through the sliding glass door screen
and window screens.

I have unpleasant cleaning chores that need doing tomorrow.
(the kitchen floor and the bathroom)
And some errands to run.
Then I want to go to the hospital and spend time with my husband.

Hi Geru. Hi Martha. Hi Elaine. Hi Susan.
Hope you are ok, Sandy.

My best to everyone.

They've gone home. Nice to see them and nice to see them leave. lol

That's a long day Kerri and trying to visit your husband too. I hope the tests don't throw up anything bad and he's home again soon.

It's a chilly morning here but the sun is shining which makes a pleasant change. It feels like a real autumnal day right now but supposed to get up to 15C later.

I got dragged round the shops in town yesterday which I hate but since I had to tolerate it I picked up some printer paper and a few other bits while we were there.

Yesterday we saw some sunshine after a very grey start and it stayed dry. This morning it's heavy rain and quite windy. They're forecasting an Indian Summer on its way but it seems a long way off today. Fingers crossed they're right. Sunshine always lifts my mood.

We're having our usual Monday get together for lunch today for a change. My sister and niece had a spa day on Monday that my niece's partner bought my sister for her birthday back in April. It's the first chance they've had to use it. I had Spencer while they went which made a change from having Alfie. Spence is almost twice the size of Alfie. Hard to believe they're half brothers.

We actually have sunshine and today and tomorrow it's meant to be 21C. Best we've had for quite a while. Sunday is down a degree with thunderstorms but I'll gladly take two days of dry weather with sunshine and warm temps. :D

Got the grocery shopping done early this morning and have towels drying outdoors. Nothing major on my agenda now until Monday morning so I intend to enjoy a very lazy weekend.

Hope everyone is well and Sandy is back soon.

Hi everyone. 

Worked an 11 hour day at work.
I decided sliced tomatoes with cottage cheese on top, 
some fresh yellow summer squash sliced and
microwaved in low sodium chicken broth, 
and a small chunk of bakery rosemary bread
would be dinner tonight. 

We've finally gotten some cooler Autumn weather.
It is nice not to have to run the air conditioner.
I loved bringing out my winter blanket and comforter.

Autumn makes for cozy sleeping weather. 

Hope everyone has a peaceful rest of the day.

Brrr. Temp dropped to 14C today. Lots of heavy rain yesterday. Dry for now but more is on the way with thunderstorms forecast. I'm off to do the grocery shop soon in hopes of missing the worst.

I've got Alfie for the day tomorrow plus my daughter and partner are visiting for the weekend so I doubt I'll be online much if at all.

Watching our Parliament in total despair. I'd happily sack the lot of them and start over.

Hi everyone. 

Wendy, 
Hope you got your food shopping done
before the rain and storms hit. 
I feel the same way about some of our politicians.
Enjoy spending time with your daughter and her partner. 

I worked a half day today.
Then went to my granddaughter's school
for grandparent's day.
Had a wonderful time with my granddaughter, Anna.
And they had a lovely meal for us.

Take care, Everyone,

Nice getting well fed as well Kerri. Smile

Sandy hasn't dropped in for a while Susan. She's struggling with health problems. She'll probably start a new thread when she comes back.

It's Autumn here. Thankfully the endless rain has finally stopped. Today is dry and sunny but chilly. Dropped to 3C overnight and the forecast is for a max of 12C. Summer (such as it was) has definitely gone.

Took my brother for his 'flu shot yesterday but not going anywhere today. I'm just going relax and have a lazy day I think. I do have a list of jobs I could be getting on with but I'm distinctly lacking in enthusiasm. Maybe later. lol

Hello everyone.

I went grocery shopping this morning.
Then I had breakfast with my daughters and grandchildren 
at my daughter's house. 

My baby grandson has put on weight.
(He was born very long and slender)
His little cheeks were chubby and cute.
I wanted to squeeze his cheekies.
I didn't, as I don't do that to babies.
But I had the urge all the same.

Overcast and chilly today.
But I have the sliding glass door slightly open
so a little bit of breeze can come in through the screen.

Have a lovely rest of the day, everyone.
