Today my granddaughter Autumn is 8 years old, and one of her presents is that Ara arrived this morning.   Autie won't know that until she gets home from school, which will be the best present she gets.  I'm going to go over soon and say hi to Ara, and take Autie's birthday present.

Tomorrow is when my sister and her husband come for lunch, so I've been trying to do a little cleaning, not my favorite way to spend the time, but necessary if I want to preserve a little of my pride!

About 3 hrs later I'm back from Jeannie's.  I took pictures while I was there but when I tried to get the memory card out of the camera back at home I realize I had inserted it backwards the last time I downloaded my photos.  

I'm glad I came back when I did as I was going with the flow of less traffic.  It was really bad coming towards me.

My doctor forwarded the results of my tests to me and everything looks pretty good.  For the 1st time in the last few years my red blood count is within the desired range, and not way below as it has been.  Cholesterol looks great as is everything else.  Ironically I am taking fewer meds and supplements.  I was sort of surprised by the cholesterol because I have been eating eggs several times a week, and never did give up things like butter, bacon, etc., and I'm soon going to try making pastry with lard.   All in all I'm feeling great and have hopes for more good years.  Here's to the good years, may they last a while longer. 


  1. I sure envy you being able to eat that way and keep your cholesterol down so low. Happy Birthday to Autumn!! 8 is a great age.

  2. Happy Birthday to your granddaughter. Glad you passed your blood test with flying colors. How long did you have to study to pass it (grin)?

  3. How did you manage to get the card in the camera the wrong way. None of mine will go in anyway but the right way.

    Happy Birthday Autumn. And nice blood work

    1. Jo, I honestly don't know how I got that card in upside down, but I can tell you I sure had a heckuva time getting it back out!

  4. I am so glad you are feeling so much better. That makes for a really Merry Christmas.
