    I live in New York State, the state with the most positive cases in the US. There are have been two confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus in our sleepy little village already. Those two people may have transmitted the virus to more people unwittingly. Prior to this point the county health Department... Read more

  • A slow, easy one

    3/23/2020 8:44:40 PM, by LESLIELENORE

    These rock irises are currently blooming in my mother’s flower garden. So, today was the first day since last Wednesday that things returned to a somewhat less stressful state. The repairs have been made to the house, and we have heat once more. So, it was a slow and easy day today. I did make ... Read more

  • The fire and its aftermath

    3/22/2020 2:21:34 PM, by LESLIELENORE

    Two days ago we had a fire at my dad’s house. It started as a chimney fire but it got too good of a start before we noticed it to be able to put it out with the four fire extinguishers dad used on it. So we had to call 911 for the fire department to come out. We ended up with fire fighters from fo... Read more

  • Good report from the doctor... a TV show being filmed

    I went to the endocrinologist on Tuesday. Their scale said that I was down 6 more pounds. Also my A1c was pretty much perfect, and my thyroid is functioning normally. (And my blood pressure was pretty much textbook...) I met the new PA in the office. She is so young looking to me! She looks like sh... Read more

  • On the final stretch...

    I finally took the plunge and filed for early retirement! I still can't believe I have started down the road of finishing with work and finally having some ME time...it is sure going to be strange...at first, I wasn't sure if I could cope being at home, but as I think more about it, retirement isn't...

  • Middle of the night phone calls are never good

    3/4/2020 6:56:53 AM, by LESLIELENORE

    Got a 3:30am call out from one of dad’s neighbors last night (well, this morning). She’s the neighbor who gave my dad his cat, Darkness. And Darkness still goes to visit her other kitties on occasion. Problem is she got another cat (a male) and it turns out the two male cats hate each other and star... Read more

  • Not aching

    3/3/2020 7:00:45 PM, by LESLIELENORE

    Nope my foot is not aching. The pain is more a combination of stabbing and throbbing. I know better than to diagnose myself (even with the dubious help of Dr Google), so I have an appointment with the foot doctor on Friday. My best guess is plantar fasciitis, but I will wait and see what the doctor ... Read more

    Getting better at keeping to my 10 mins a day, walking or the stationary cycle...it is a slow process, but I will build up time as I go along, and maybe add some swimming too... I want to thank the guys who come, read and comment on my blog, it gives me a buzz and makes me feel all sorts of bette... Read more

  • Catching up

    2/29/2020 2:19:57 PM, by LESLIELENORE

    I have officially moved from the third floor to the second floor in the apartment building. Already I sleep better. I don’t know for sure what it was, but up there I was getting 2-4 hours of sleep a night. Now that I have moved I am averaging 10 hours a night! Might be different neighbors. Might be... Read more

  • Life is an Adventure....

    2/28/2020 3:56:51 PM, by ALLEYCATTUS

    It has certainly been a bumpy ride, but I am finally on track after everything I went through over the last 9 years... 390 I still have about 15 kilos to lose, but am not letting go of the advantage I got through being ill. I feel better having lost weight, even if for the worst of reasons, so... Read more
