Here are photos from the snow that started yesterday and is still going strong.

Hello and Thank You


Hello my wonderful friends.  I'm back after an issue with my heart.  At the end of January my blood pressure suddenly went up very high and I experienced tachycardia for several days, which was both exhausting and frightening.  After a visit with my family physician and some testing with a cardiologist I was put on a beta blocker.  I tire very easily, but the medication is doing the job.   Now I have an awful ringing in the ears and some abdominal pain.  The bad thing is the doctors don't know why this happened in the first place.  In five days I turn 50 years old...which could be part of the problem.

Today we are experience a huge snow storm, and as I look out the window and see what wonders Mother Nature can do.  At the end of the day we are supposed to get between 8 and 12 inches of the white stuff.

I thank all of you who left caring notes for me. Please remember to get all those regular check-ups, even if they are no fun.  You'll be glad you did.

I hope to be blogging regularly again, and getting back into the challenges I was doing before all this.

Have a wonderful weekend!
