Hurricane Irene

I pray that everyone who lives on the East Coast was spared any damage or flooding. I was worried about my son in NYC and as things turned out, he missed the subway to go home in Jersey so had to stay in NYC with a friend in the Bronx and wasn't able to get home until this morning. Not sure if his flight to Oregon was cancelled or not, but he was supposed to fly out this morning.

I'm doing well considering the 100 degree weather we have been having. It is too hot to do anything or go out and the air conditioning is straining to keep us cool. I for one will be happy to see fall next month with cooler weather. I am not much on winters anymore but this will surely beat the heat and humidity we have. We are predicted to have some 80 temps at the end of the week and hopely that will help cool things off. A couple of weeks ago, I had to drive in a lightening storm and it was not fun or pretty. Several homes caught fire from lightening strikes and the strikes came awfully close to me. It was the longest drive in memory.

Hope everyone is well and doing good. I miss blogging, but too tired to get on sometimes. Since my heart attack, I have been a little depressed off and on and it's the one thing I thought would never happen to me. Oh well life goes on such as it is.
May you all be Blessed. Love and hugs, Pat

It's a Girl

We just found out the sex of our future grandchild and it's a girl. I am thrilled and so excited and can't wait until December but like everything else, I have to wait.

My diabetes is giving me hell and most of the time, I am so hungry, but there is very little that I like that is on my list of foods. At least I can have fresh fruit because that would have done me in. I ate some wonderful carrots the other day, only to find out that's a no no on the list.If anyone is a diabetic, please share how you managed. Love and hugs, Pat
