Good morning. It will be cloudy today with a few sprinkles or snow flurries and light wind. We have had a great slow thaw so far this year and it has lowered the expectations for the flood. It is really looking good. Now if we could get control of this virus raging around us it would all be good. I did my 30 minutes of walking yesterday and had a total of 5,025 steps for the day. I didn’t do a lot of things during the day but did some small chores and Barb brought dinner so we had time to chat. She had to cancel her vacation to Mexico for later this month but realized it was necessary. Not much to report and glad I am not the one that has to go out. Hope you all have a great day.

Rosie, sorry your daughter is upset but it is happening to so many people. At least she has time she can draw wages on. There are some that don't even have that. I feel for all the businesses and workers that are affected with this.

As of yesterday, our Gov. ordered all Bars and Restaurants to close at 3 p.m. and remain closed until, March 30th. M daughter is not to work until, or for 3 weeks, and she understood that she would automatically get paid but, now, she just found out that she has to use her, time saved up for this and she has/had other plans for what she has/had saved up, what a bummer, or work out of/from home, but, she does home visits, so how can she work from home> What a bummer and she is very upset, which I do not blame her. :(

Good morning. We are going to be sunny today with some wind and it will be in the low 30s. Sounds like a fairly nice day. Yesterday I had my 30 minutes of walking and 4,901 total steps for the day. I did some more everyday chores around the house and kept moving during the day. It has been decided that my daughter will not come into my home but leave my groceries on the front porch. I think it might be going to far but that is what she wants so that is what we will get. I did cancel my regular eye check up next week and will reschedule it for later. Tina will take Hailley for a hair cut next week so that helps. It is a crazy world where people are stealing toilet paper out of cars and wash rooms. That is called panic mode. I am sure not there. Hope you all are doing okay and are well. Have a good day,.

My daughter Tina works for the school district as a para-professional and they were told that school would close for at least two weeks but possible till the end of this school year and all classes would be held online. Area merchants and cable tv are working so that all children will have computer access and cable tv so no child will be left behind.

Good morning to you all. It is going to be a partly sunny day today with a little warmer temps about 30 but breezy. Yesterday was brisk but sunny most of the day. I did get out and clean up a little after Hailley. The fresh air felt good. I did some indoor everyday chores around the house and walked for 30 minutes. Breathing was pretty good yesterday. I had a total of 4,382 steps for the day. I hope to at least get my 30 minutes walking in today and to get my bedroom cleaned if I am up to it. Hope everyone has a good day.

Good morning. I woke up to a cloudy sky and 10 degrees F. Will be a cool, breezy day with a little sunshine. I will like that. Will try to do as much as I can today. Yesterday was terrible. I didn’t get anything done. I hadn’t slept the night before so was tired and slept quite a bit during the day. I did some reading and watch some taped shows. That was my day. Today has to be better. Have a good Saturday 😊

Good morning. Cooler today with more clouds and windy, Will stay in and do some things around the house. Yesterday I only got in 18 minutes walking and had a total of 3,795 steps for the day. Things have just not been all that good in the step department lately. Sure hope it starts to get better soon. Hailley is slowly clearing up but it is really slow. Hoping that In the next couple weeks we will be able to open windows and get some fresh air in this old house. Hope you all have a good Friday the 13th.

Rosie, I have one filled out each year but we don't get ours back till September sometime towards the end of the month. I am not sure how much is needed here.

Feels chilly to me, here, my hands are cold even in the house, right, now. and not warm enough here for spring either, ,,,, So, anyways, Sharon, yes, I had to send proof of what I did my homestead taxes, with, my proof of income, my social security 1099, copy of my drivers license, copy of my form I filled out , copy of my taxes, copy of assessment value on my property, copy of the letter they sent to me, , I also wrote them a letter. So, they said in the letter, it could take up to 90 days, I sure hope not, yes, I wrote them and told them I didn't work last year so couldn't file a state tax return, so, I just filed for the homestead property tax credit, I'm sure I'm most likely not the only one, that's done this, and people who just pay rent can apply for a tax return, too, they don't pay property tax, but, rent. I just hope I ear from them soon,

Good morning. It is going to be a windy day with mostly cloudy skies and temps near 40. I have things to do and will see just how much I can get done. Yesterday I walked 30 minutes and had a total of 4,211 steps for the day. I did rest a lot of the day but completed some small everyday chores around the house. Hope your day was good and today is even better.

Barb, if you are like me you are not so patiently waiting for spring. It is still to cold to be spring as far as I am concerned.

Rosie, good of you to take your grandson to his dentist appointment. Did they say what kind of proof they wanted. It is hard when you don't file taxes to send a copy of your tax return. Always something.

Good morning. It is going to be a nice day here today with temps near 40 F. and sunshine with light breeze. It is 27 out there right now. I will keep this short because my computer is running very slow this morning. Yesterday I did a couple loads of laundry and that was about all I did. It was not a good breathing day. Barb brought dinner so didn’t have to cook and we had a nice visit. Hope you all have a great day.

Good morning. It is a chilly start at 7 degrees F. but the sun will shine and it will get to about 30 degrees F. Not sure if it will be breezy or not. I have lots I can do today and will see how much I can get done. Yesterday was not a real active day for me. I did get a couple loads of laundry done and made a wonderful pumpkin/cranberry muffin. They taste so good and are really healthy. They use whole wheat flour and oat bran. Hope it is a good day for all today.

Nice to see you here June.

Rosie, no rain here. I guess it needs to get warmer for that to happen, We were at 7 F. this morning.

We're suppose to have rain, haven't got it yet, but, looks like it might be coming. My legs kind of bother, me, right now, they feel achy, anyways, as soon as I can get outside to walk with now snow or ice, I guess I should start small and work up to more walking. It is kind of warm out, which is nice, I didn't check the temp this morning, but, it was suppose to be in the 30's. Hope your breathing getts better, Sharon

It is Sunday morning and I have turned my clocks forward and will now get my day started. I hate daylight savings time so not enjoying the change. It will be a lovely day with sunshine and the temps will be in the 30s. I have lots of little things I would like to get done. Yesterday I walked for 15 minutes and had 3,705 total steps for the day. I did get a lot of little things done during the day. I made a nice bean soup in the crockpot and made a loaf of bread. It made for a nice and easy dinner. I do love soup. Hope it is a peaceful day for all.

Rosie, it is much cooler here today and windy. My balance is generally good but my breathing gets worse as the day goes on.

Rosie, the wind is such a factor and I know it always feels colder. We won't see the 50s till we get rid of some of this snow.

Good morning. It is a lovely morning here with bright sunshine and temps in the 30s heading for 44 F. That will be so nice. It stayed above freezing last night and so far we have had a perfect slow thaw for this season. I has really helped with the flood outlook for this year. The are downsizing it already. Yesterday was a nice day also with sunshine but lots of wind which does help to evaporate the water. I didn’t do much except little chores and putting things around the house away. It all takes times. Hope you have a lovely weekend.

We are having some lovely weather here Rosie. Hope you are getting some nice weather and sunshine too.

Good morning. It is cloudy and it seems like it might have rained a little last night. It looks like it could be sunny today but very windy. We will see how the day goes. I will again do small household chores today and take it easy. Yesterday I had 20 minutes walking and 4,115 total steps for the day. I was glad to see the step count rising a little. Will try to do more again today. Every step counts. I have lots of little things I can do to keep me moving and busy.

Good morning on another lovely day. It will be another sunny day in the 30’s but we will have some wind with that. It all helps to melt the snow and evaporate it. It is a slow run off and that will be what we need. This is the right kind of spring for us. I am getting so excited about being able to get out and work in the yard. Oh for the fresh air. Yesterday was a nice day. I did about 20 minutes of walking and had a total of 3,659 steps. I did a lot of small clean up chores around the house. Taking it slow and easy with the breathing but all in all I am feeling good and enjoying life. Barb brought dinner and we got caught up on our visiting. Hope you all have a great Wednesday,

Good morning. Today will be another nice day with partly sunny, temps in the 30s and light wind. It is slowly thawing which will be good for the flood outlook when the snow finally goes. It has slowly been downgraded as the thaw continues at this slow pace and with no added snow lately. I am sure glad of that. Yesterday was a fair day. I only walked for 15 minutes and had a total of 3,190 steps. Will try do better today. Tonight is my dinner night with Barb so excited to see her since we missed last week because she was out of town. I hope you all have a good day.

Naps are always good.

Here it is another Sunday. It will be a nice sunny day today but we will have a strong wind. It helps with the evaporation of the snow. We will be in the 30s again today so a slow melt. I love it. Yesterday was a little better and I did get a few things done. I got my chair blanket and Hailley’s blanket washed and also a load of rugs washed. I also did a bunch of small everyday chores that needed to be done, All in all it was a good day. Today Hailley will get her bath and I am starting to see just a little improvement in the skin again. Hope everyone is doing well and that you have a good day.

Good morning. It I foggy this morning and the temperatures rose overnight so we are at 29 degrees today. There is a light breeze. I am feeling pretty good this morning so hope to get some things done while I feel this way. Hoping for some sunshine later to help with the attitude. Yesterday turned out tough so rested most of the day. It was a beautiful day that was sunny and it started to warm a little. The forecast looks good for the next 10 days so that is nice. Hope you all are having a good weekend.

I try to sit in my chair and lean over and cut my nails. I also can put one foot on the toilet seat and cut that way.

It's snowing here again today and doing a lot of blowing snow as well. So, they called of school here today.

Gosh, Sharon, I'd try that if I could/can see my toe nail, which by that I mean I have a hard time reaching it, to even cut them anymore, although, I used to prop my foot on a kitchen chair and cut them, I'm not sure if I would be able to do that now, I'd also be standing on one leg, with my new knee. But, I may just try that when I can. Thanks

Good morning. The weather will start to warm a little today. It will be partly cloudy with temps in the 20s and light breeze. My daughter will get groceries for me and that makes me happy. I have so much cleaning I want to get done but just don’t seem to have the energy. I guess it will be here when I do get some energy so won’t worry about it too much. I am so waiting for spring to get here and to get rid of the snow so I can get out in the yard. I would even just be happy to go out on the deck for a little bit but too much snow on it. Yesterday was a quiet day and didn’t get much done. I walked 14 minutes and had 3, 267 total steps for the day,. Still not very impressive. It will get better. Hope everyone has a good day

Rosie, I cut a little v in rhe toenail and it seemed to help pull it back out as it grew. Don't know where I heard that but it worked..

Well, of course it's snowing here today and has been coming down hard, it's suppose to be a storm and that it is.

I believe I want t make an appointment for a foot Dr. that comes here, to see if he/she can check out my toenail on my right foot, it hurts when putting pressure on it, and it is growing in towards the skin on my toe, I've been seeing a podiatrist and he is good, but, and I also saw where i I soak my foot 3-4 times and day it'll soften it up and then put something between the toe and skin like tooth floss and or cotton balls, maybe I should try that first.

Good morning. It will be cloudy and cool today with some more snow flurries but not too windy. We are going to warm up a little over the weekend and have a little more thawing. I will like that. Maybe I can get the birds fed and feeders cleaned. Yesterday I walked for 14 minutes and had 3,210 total steps for the day. Still not great but an improvement over the day before. Still pretty short of breath but it is getting better. Hailley got her hair cut and her skin is really a mess. If it doesn’t start to improve it will be time for the vet again and I really don’t want to do that. She is scheduled to have a vet visit for her annual checkup and shots late in March and hate to have to go before but might just have to get her shots a little early. I have lots of things I would like to do today and hope to get some of the things done. We will try to work through and problems and get something done. Hope you all have a good day.

Good morning on this Wednesday. It is the middle of the week already and we have a few snow flurries but it won’t amount to anything. It doesn’t loo like snow over the next 10 days which is good for us. I hope to have a good day and get some things done today. Yesterday was not a good day. The weather change caused me to be very short of breath and I didn’t get anything done. I was only able to walk for 7 minutes and had a total of 2,635 steps for the day. Not too impressive but I did walk a little. I have learned that every little bit helps and I will not give up. I take the bad days as they come and make the best of the good days. Today Hailley get her hair cut and I am happy for that. It always helps when her hair if fresh cut. No dinner this week with Barb as she is out of town till Friday. I miss it when she is gone. Hope it is a good day for all.

Rosie, it is cloudy here today too.

Yesterday turned out to be a lovely day. The clouds turned into sunshine and the light breeze dropped to calm. It got to 32 F. and was so nice. Today is colder with more wind. We shall see what it turns out to be. I am shorter of breath today but still feel pretty good. Yesterday I walked 35 minutes and had a total of 6,801 steps for the day. It felt good to get that much walking and steps for a change. I did 4 loads of laundry and a few other small chores around the house. It was a good day. Hope today is as good and hope you have a good one too.

Good morning all. Today is going to be a good day. My mail was full of posts from 1/23 and 1/24 and I am not sure what that is all about but what can I say. LOL. I just deleted them all and will go forward. It will still be a warmer day with temps in the low 30’s but it will be cloudy today and a little breezy. It is starting to feel like the winter is starting to wind down. We will start day light savings time soon and I sure don’t like it but can’t do much about it. Yesterday was another quiet day and I finished catching up on a couple of series that I have been taping and it felt good to get that done. I am ready to hit it hard today and get back to working again. I will go slow but need to move more. I hope that all of you had a good weekend.

Rosie, I only pay less than a dollar for most of my stuff and up to $3 for others but I have one that the copay was $175 and the company gave me a discount so only pay $@5 a month now and I can do that. Medicine is so expensive.

Well, I am doing the inhaler as best as I can, I talked to the pharmacist the other day, on the phone and got what I needed to know, this will just be for this sickness time, I have wellcare for scripts. and I used to pay only about 65 cents, and then I didn't have to pay anything, now, I am paying at least $1.30 for co pays, but, like I told the pharmacist, I should feel lucky because I know there are a lot of other people, out there that have to pay way too much more, way too much. I am blessed there.

Good morning. The sun is shining bright and it will be a little warmer today, In the upper teens with light wind. Not a bad day. Yesterday I still took it easy and slept a lot but did do a few things around the house. It is slow going but feel pretty good today so hoping for a better day. Hailley gets a good bath today and hopefully she will get her hair cut again next week. I need to stay on top of that so that it doesn’t get too long. Hope that you all have a good day today.

Hope you are feeling better and I had a hard time with the inhaler so I am glad when he put me on the nebulizer. I am also glad that medicare pays for the meds because I sure couldn't afford them. One of my inhalers was over $50 a month and that was just one. I would be using 5 different inhalers now if not nebulizing.

Yes, there are times when my blood pressure is good, but, just not enough, times, anyways, we had some sun today, more this evening/early, and, it was shining in my kitchen window, in my eyes, and I went to get some decaf coffee, and it blinded, me, I'm thankful for the sun, just not blinding me in my eyes,so I cannot see what I am doing, also to take the.my meds for my everyday use and for the pneumonia, which is actually much better, I don't care for the inhaler, but I'll keep working on it, emoticon emoticon

Yes, Sharon, I take meds for BP, and have a monitor here, but, it is old, and can not afford to buy another one, when I got the one I have, I bought it on a credit card. I don't have them (credit cards) any more and never ever will again. Yesterday, my BP was good, 136/70

I believe we are looking for 30 degree weather for this weekend also. Right now, is/are 19/7

Good morning. I think things are starting to get better. I will be taking it slow and trying to increase my walking a little every day again and hope to be back where I was before this started. The sun is shining but it is very cold yet this morning but the temps will slowly start to rise now. We will have a few days in the 30’s this weekend so will have a little thawing. I am glad for that. Hailley is slowly improving also and I am happy for that. Hope you all have a good day.

Rosie, do you take meds for your high blood pressure and do you have a monitor at home so you can check it there. I find my blood pressure is always high when I am at the doctor but just fine at home.

Thanks, Sharon, so far I'm okay, on house wise, but, if I ever had/have to move, I'd get an apartment, I believe, and yeah, I've been using thin pads for some time, sneezing sometimes does that, making us pee, too, lol

My BP was up as usual, emoticon

It is sunny out there this morning and calm which is very deceiving. It is -23 degrees F. and will only get to about -2 today. Poor Hailley has a really hard time out there. Her little feet just can’t take this weather. With her bad joints the cold really bothers her. Yesterday was not the best but it could have been worse. I didn’t have any energy but did get a few things done. Today I feel energized so hope to do much better. Hope you all are having a good day,.


I am so grateful that my house is paid for because I wouldn't make it if I had a house payment. I am so sorry that you are sick and it sounds like it could get bad if you don't take care. Rest and drink plenty of fluids and get Depends for the peeing. LOL. I hate when I cough.

Yes, Sharon, I understand about the medicare premiums, it was that way for me,when I was working, and one year, it took all my increase plus some of what I was already getting, because of the insurance plan had at the time went up and I was getting less then the yr. b4 that, but, when I called medicare, I got things straightened out a bit. I wish my house was paid for, then it might be easier

The sun has been out today, nice and bright, and no cloudy sky, but, it is cold

Good morning. We are in a full blizzard warning. It is snowing lightly and the wind is blowing blizzard force causing white out conditions. It will be short lived but will be extremely cold. It is -3 right now and temps will be dropping through the day. Sounds like some nice weather will start to move in during the end of the next week. That sounds good. Yesterday was a better day and I was able to walk for 18 minutes and had a total of 4,533 steps for the day. My shoulder and arm are much better and did get some laundry done. I have one load of rugs to do today. Barb brought dinner last night and it was nice to see her after missing here due to her being on vacation. We got a chance to catch up al little. Hope you all have a good day today.

Rosie, the amount I receive is so little that the increase in Medicare takes up all the increase in what we receive. Makes it tough.

That is odd, Sharon, generally everyone's medicare goes up, when the Soc. Sec. raise comes, When I had to stop working, I was able to get on Medicaid, and it pays for all my co-pay even my medicare co-pays, I would not be able to make it if I didn't have it, I would not have even been able to have that knee surgery either.

We had a few scattered snow flurries today, but, it's been so cold again, emoticon

Good morning. I am feeling much better today and hope to continue to improve. Will try to get my 30 minutes of walking in and do a few things around the house today. Yesterday was not good so not a lot of activity again. It was a lovely day outside and today will be fairly nice but will have some snow moving in and some cold weather so need to get out and clean up after Hailley again. Hope you all have a good day,

Rosie, is sure does seem like everything goes up in cost but wages or benefits don't. I hear from so many how their medicare went up but mine stayed the same again for the 5th year,. What can I say,.

Our snow has already been going down, and we've got some bare spots on my driveway and the road by my house was bare, There wasn't much sun yesterday, though, but, it wasn't gray and gloomy looking out, either. I need to get me a few stamps, but, can't afford to get a book of them right, now emoticon ... Utility bills seem like they keep going up and up and half of the bill is either taxes on it or for something else like 911 and etc. Ugh!!!

Good morning. We are now in a cool spell and the sun won’t be out as much but that is okay as I will just have to keep looking for the day when the snow thaws and we can get outside again. I miss my yard. Yesterday was another fairly good day. I walked for 30 minutes and had a total of 6,407 steps for the day. I did get my furniture vacuumed and down the basement stairs. It feels good to get a few of these things done. It is slow going but it is getting done. I also did a lot of small chores for the day. Today Hailley gets her medicated shampoo bath and those always are good. Hope to get some of the floors vacuumed and mopped today. Hope you have a good one

Rosie, I can tell the sun has more power now as it can be in the 20's and with the sunshine the snow on the sidewalks and street will start to melt.

I am sounding like a broken record with the weather being in the 20’s, sunny but breezy today but I will take it. I am really feeling the sunshine. I hope to get more things done around the house today. Yesterday was a pretty good day and I walked for 30 minutes and had a total of 6,211 steps for the day. I did get the bathroom cleaned and some other things done. Every little thing I get done makes me feel so much better. Slow is the word for the day. We are one more day closer to spring.

Good morning. Today will be another sunny day with temps in the 20’s and windy. I have lots to do and hope to get some of it done. Yesterday was a fairly good day. I walked for 30 minutes and had a total of 6,117 steps for the day. I did some more housework and baked my bread again. I will see how it tastes today but not impressed with the loaf. Can’t figure out what is wrong with it. Hailley is slowly improving and hope to get her skin clear again soon. Hope everyone has a good day.

You are right about groups closing and sure do miss Kirby and Rhonda.

Good morning, Sharon, yes, it'll most likely be some pretty hot/warmer days where we'll be way too warm, but, I'll try not to complain, I do like to sit outside on some warm days, though, but, not real hot ones, lol

Looks like you and I are the only ones that is coming here any more, oh well, at least it keeps the group open, I know of one group has/had been deleted as I couldn't find it any more, so ad as I've seen many groups here fall by the way side, so to speak. I need to get around and et dressed, soon, lazy days these days, lol

Good morning. It will be another day in the teens. It is -3 F. right now so cool. The good thing is that the sun will shine and there will be no snow or wind. I have things to do and need to get out and clean up after Hailley. Yesterday was good. I walked 30 minutes and had 6,401 total steps for the day. I did a little more cleaning and got some things put away. I made a loaf of bread that turned out like a brick so will have to try it again today. I also made a nice enchilada casserole for dinner and it was so good. I am working on adding more veggies to my diet and it is hard to remember them. I will miss my dinner with Barb this week because she is in Florida with her husband while he has a business conference. Hope you all have a good day.

Rosie, we look like a full sun day today and that makes me happy. I will accept the cool because I know that there will be a time in the near future I will be complaining about how hot and humid it is.

Good morning to all. It is a cooler morning today but we will take it. Spring is coming and it will soon be nice and warm again. Hoping for a little more sunshine today and no wind. Yesterday it really settled the snow a lot and the sidewalks melted down pretty good. I am glad about that. It got to 40 degrees. I did walk for 30 minutes and had a total of 6,368 steps for the day. It was a good day. I did some more dusting and polishing of the furniture and got all the stuff on my desk gone through and all the cubby holes cleaned out and things tossed. I took time and input some of my tried recipes into my recipe program on the computer and that made me happy. I did some reading and catching up on my taped shows and even made some Banana Cinnamon rolls and a great dinner. Hope you all had a good day too.

Rosie, don't these dreary days get you down. I think I am more tired and irritable when it is cloudy for long a stretch as we have had this winter.

Good morning. I am waking up to a 38 F. temperature and that is so great. Alas, the temps will be dropping throughout the day with high winds but it will be sunny so all is not lost. It will be a good thawing day. Yesterday was a good day with 25 minutes walking and I had 5,056 total steps for the day. I did get a some more dusting and polishing the furniture done and cleaned up my desk and all the little cubby holes in it. I haven’t done that in a long time. I did some reading, watched some taped shows and even had time for a few games on my tablet. Good day all around.

Rosie, I used to do a lot of knitting too and plain embroidery but fell in love with the counted cross stitch. They make pictures that look so real and they are fun.

I'm not very good at embroidering, but, I have some things I want to embroider so, I'll look at my book or check out some n you tube. I also am going to try at knitting again, I haven't done that in a long time. emoticon

Good morning. It is going to be a lovely day and I feel good. The sun is shining, it will be near 40 today. The only downside is that it will be windy but that might be good to help it thaw faster. The sunshine will sure help the gloomy feeling. Yesterday was a fair day with 25 minutes walking and a total of 4,550 steps for the day. I didn’t get a lot done but I did get some misc. small chores done around the house. Today I will finish the dusting and polishing of the furniture. I am starting to see a slight improvement in Hailley’s skin and hope it continues. The prednisone has helped the itching so she is much more comfortable. It is looking good for the weekend. Have a good one.

I used to crochet but then turned to counted cross stitch and love it. I haven't done any since my last neck and shoulder flare up and need to get it out again and might just try do that tomorrow.

Exactly, Sharon, it'll be better when we finally see/get some sun instead of a gloomy cloudy day. now it is starting to snow, ugh!! Well, Feb. is a shorter month and then March will be here. looking forward and onward we go.

I rinsed out a sauce pan and bread pan that had meatloaf in it from last night that had been soaking DD made for supper last night. I have also been working on some crocheting.

Good morning. Today will be partly cloudy with a little sunshine in the afternoon and warming temperatures. The breeze will come up and maybe we will have a little thawing. Yesterday was a fair day with 20 minutes of walking and 4,229 steps for the day. I did get some of the furniture dusted and polished and did some small chores around the house. Barb brought dinner last night and we enjoy a nice chat session after eating. It was a great night. Hailley was a little more restful. I think the prednisone has helped with the itching. Hope it is a good day for all.

Not nice weather is it Rosie. I am tired of all the clouds and gloom. I think a little sunshine would help us all to feel better.

I think it's going to be another gloomy day here, today, too. emoticon If we get any sun, it'll be much later in the day. Glad Hailey looks better and had her hair cut, I need to start to "get" moving around more, sure wish I could walk outside but, it is just too cold for one and too much slippery ice in places, although the city goes through now and plows a pathway on our sidewalks which is nice, even tough there are not many people out walking during the winter, and most times, they walk in the road, even in summer many walk in the road, and expect traffic to wait on them, I was not taught that way, I was taught to walk on the side walk

Well, weather man just said "cloudy, little rain and snow, and little windy

Good morning. It will be another gloomy day today with clouds but warming into the 20’s again but a little wind. Last of the real cloudy days and we should start to get a little sunshine and thawing tomorrow. Looking forward to it. Yesterday was a fair day for me. I did walk 25 minutes and had a total of 4,884 steps for the day. I had a pretty good breathing day. Hailley got her haircut and doesn’t look quite as bad as I thought but not happy with her so will have to put her on a prednisone burst to see if I can help her with the itching. It will help some of her hot spots to heal. Keep up with the baths and move forward. This ice on the sidewalks is hard on her joints as she slips a lot. I will check with the vet to see if she can have baby aspirin for pain and use that on bad days when she is really limping. Hope that all have a good day.

Rosie, I can tolerate a lot of pain but when it is bad I am a number one sissy.
