That sounds good! I have some ice cream and sherbet in the freezer. I might have some tonight, though I don't have jam... just apricot preserves.

I'm doing laundry and trying to decide what to make for dinner.

Went to see the Doc this morning. He is so pleased with my sugar readings, he has taken me off the glipizide completely. He is also happy that I have started to eat again. So am I. I was getting nervous about it. the only thing is my anemia. He put me on minute amounts of liquid iron drops.

I am so happy for you, Addie. Dad was on glipizide and some other medications for his diabetes. And as you eat more of the right foods I think it will help your anemia and you won't need the iron.

Still "playing" in my studio and now that I know when I'm having surgery, I'm accelerating my reorganization tasks. Next Tuesday is "D" day and I want to have plenty of easy things to do while I recover. Doc says I'll be in a cast for 6 weeks. I think I can come up with enough to do. That time will be spent "fine tuning" my space. I'm actually looking forward to it. The time in my studio, that is.

I will always be anemic. I don't seem to process iron properly. I am not sure I am going to like those liquid iron drops though. And I just can't add another pill to my already stash. The doc seems more concernedd with my iron levels than I am. I am used to it being the way it is. And I don't care. Only he does.

Trying to cool down after setting the garage to rights. The a/c guys are coming Friday to install the new air conditioner/heat pump I had to buy this morning since the old one died a few days ago. The inside parts will go in the garage where the old ones are now and the garage was a wreck. I knew they would need room to work, so with that motivation I carried stuff out to the outside sheds and temporarily into my bedroom. When I pulled the car back in after finishing, I felt as though I was in the wrong garage. Wish I could keep it that way for at least a while. I'm certainly looking forward to Friday night when I can turn on cool air again. We're already in the 90's down here.

I'm so pleased to read this.

More red meat and liver, that's how I took care of an iron deficiency.

Hauled the huge dracenas and hibiscus pots outside. Have a very lush crop of weeds growing in every single flower garden and raised bed, I'm pulling weeds like crazy.

Worked late todayan early busy day tomorrow with caterings. Went to acute care last night, I have had enough with this cough for the last 2 weeks, ever since that bad tooth. I was diagnosed with bronchial infection. Doc. prescribed some potent drugs that make me feel loopey. Time to relax awhile now before running the daughter to piano lessons.
