We made it through day 1 with being under by 400 mgs. We are counting mg of sodium and writing it down. All three meals tasted quite good. We went through the pantry yesterday and took out

Regarding staying within the daily recommended amount of 2000 mgs. of sodium (salt)---We almost need to cook ALL of our meals at home. Really hard to manage if you eat out. That said---we will still be eating out once or twice weekly. But I am going to try harder to meet that goal in our home meals. (Bill can always add salt if he wants.) I am trying something today and will let you know if it's a success or a dud.
I browned a chuck roast and added a little black pepper. Put veggies (carrots, potatoes, onion) in bottom of crockpot and sprinkled them with Mrs Dash Tomato Basil Garlic seasoning blend, added the browned roast on top, added 1 1/2 cups water and sprinkled on more Mrs Dash. It should be ready by 5:00 and we'll put it to the taste test. Sherry

Good morning all.
 I think you're right,Sherry. It's beautiful this morning but humidity is moving in to Indy,BOO.
 Talked to Wanda this morning and she's doing chemo again and would appreciate your prayers.
 We have too many friends going through tough times.
 Have a good day.

Good morning All
Patsy we have been trying to avoid salt too and goodness that
is hard every thing has so much salt in it. I would guess that
just the fresh veggies are the only ones without salt.
glad to hear that Duane is feeling better.

Hope that Marcia is doing better.
Hugs to all or you

Good Morning All,

Sunshine is bright and our temps are heating up--I guess summer has arrived for sure. I haven't been outside yet but the TV is warning that the "muggy meter" is going up and will stay up for the next 4-5 days.

That moment when you walk into a spider web and suddenly turn into a karate master.

Ya'll have an outstanding day. Sherry

Good morning all, yeah, Duane is home. Now I have lots of new things to learn. He is on a strict 2000 mg of Sodium diet. I have always read labels for his diabetes, but now I have to read Sodium also. Never too old to learn. It is amazing how much sodium we eat and don't know it. Just so grateful he is home and feeling better. Hope you all have a great day.

Good morning ALL
Nancy we are having a bright and beautiful morning here and
no rain for a change.
You are right growing old isn't for sissies. I sure didn't know
that a person could have so many places on our bodies that hurt.
I thank God every day for just being here and able to get around
as well as I do.
You all have a wonderful day and take care if out and about.

Good Morning All.

Got up to a stormy old morning, but I think the rain has let up right now.

Our paper went up in price & down in quality so we ended up cancelling our subscription. We also discovered the Sunday paper on Saturday morning at the Dollar Tree. Two problems though: When they took the overpass out, it was difficult for us to get to the Dollar Store (It is on the other side of the freeway) & 2. there were some folks that would buy up the papers & then resell them for $3-$4 each. The last time we were there when they opened & they were still sold out by the time we got through the line. About a month ago, we got a deal, Home Delivery, Sunday only, less than $1 a week for a year.

Prayers for Marcia, Duane, & any others who might be ailing. Getting old is definitely not for sissies.

Y'all have a good day.

Good morning all
Sherry,I went from the daily to Thursday & Sunday last year. It's an adjustment,for sure. Larry & I took the Star from the time we married in July of 1959 and I continued until until last year when I when I cut to two days a week. I do read the digital edition.Did you know you can get the Sunday paper at Dollar Tree for $1:00?
Everyone enjoy your day.

Good Morning All,

We decided NOT to renew our subscription to the Indianapolis Star and this is our first day without a newspaper...It might take a little "getting accustomed to". We've been reading it since 1956! The cost has went UP each year and this past year was $450.89 and we decided we could live without it. The TV is tuned in to the Today show and we should be able to keep up with all the breaking news.

We usually feed the King around 7:30 and he is probably sitting on the picture windowsill downstairs waiting for his breakfast.

Ya'll have a superb day. Sherry

So very sorry to hear abt Marsha, she has always been so kind and she sure has gone through so much this past year, she is surely in my prayers, GOD Bless her and you. Duane has sure been struggling too , sure hope he perks up soon, hang in and hang on guys. I went to the Indpls Zoo with grand and great grand and great grand kid, SUNDAY, I think I got more excited than the little ones, Had such a great day. I feel sorry for all the animals caged up I think they all siderve to be set free, but that's not going to happen. Loved the bird show, could think abt buying one of the lfg parrots, they are so beautiful and sure are friendly. GOD Bless all, have a great evening.

Good Morning All,

Well, we only got one downpour yesterday afternoon and it cleared up. Maybe we'll get lucky today with a whole day of sunshine. We will see!

Pat P., Thanks for your added support.

Nothing on our agenda except a few chores. I enjoyed talking to Patsy night and happy to hear that Duane is doing better. Praise the Lord!

Ya'll have a fantastic day. Sherry
