this time my asthma flare up lasted three weeks. i am so relieved. now I'd like to get back to my swimming for my very bad arthritic condition. am snow bound here and fell recently in the stuff so spent the whole day here feeling a bit trapped. maybe tomorrow they will dig us out.

Good luck Joan, on getting dug out. I'm ice-bound and if I want to get untrapped I have to find someone to spread some sand or do it myself. Yeah, right! The main roads are OK, but I'm at the top of the hill on a private drive about 1/4 mile from the mailboxes where I have a man keeping the area clear for the mail drivers.

I went outside this morning to feed the turkeys and had to sprinkle corn on my path to keep myself from falling. With everything covered with ice, the poor birds depend on me and jump out of the old oaks and run down to me when they see food. I hope it warms up soon. There about 40 to 50 of them. Some are getting quite tame.

I was hoping the ice would soften so I can take the tractor and push it off some, but it got very cold and we had more sleet and freezing rain last night.

well, can't swim until we have days in the 30's. had one day like that but back to deep freeze again next week.

so much for the "rusty" years...afraid of pneumonia which is a true bummer for an asthmatic.

Well I never did get "well". What can I say. Came down with a gastro-intestinal mess a while back and it is very bad now. Am trying to eat "calm" food. Then had headaches from sinus and stuffy nose and don't know if it is a virus or molds.

February our average temp was 12 and that is not including wind chill factor. Too cold for snow and possibly the molds are in full bloom. Or it is another virus, uugghhh.

Am tired of this and arthritis pain and the rest of it but what can you do.

we lost power today and lost heat. thankfully it came back on. can not take decongestants because of high blood pressure so got coricidin and it works okay maybe. feeling a bit fatigued by it all.
