Good Morning

How does this find you

on this Tuesday Morning

I am in more pain with it

not just in the back but around

to my ribs which is unusual

Still it all sent to try us & try us

it does lol

The health Check went well apart

from weight i am the same weight

as i was last year but heavier than

2013 & over a Stone (14lbs) more than

in 2012 i know i need to lose the weight

& i do eat healthy but when it comes to

exercise they have two hopes Bob Hope

& No Hope lol actually it not that i don't

want to but i find i am in more pain &

even swimming it can start my vertigo

off i guess it a lot of movement in

such a short time

I did the August Block which i put

on my blog along with May-July

Today i am not going to do much

it may be knitting certainly not

sewing today which is a shame

as i would have liked to have

started some projects

The start of today looks very

dull & windy not sure what will

happen later they have said more

rain the other day we had nearly as

much rain as we should have for the

whole month so can't say we not had

enough lol

Well have a Blessed & a Wonderful day

take care

Hugs Janice

Hi All. Love all the pics.

It's supposed to be hot hot hot today. Guess I'll stay in except for a trip to the grocery to get some canning supplies. I need to get the peaches put up before they rot away.

I love that saying, Janice. I need to make it my mantra.

Great ME Carol B.
