Good morning everyone! Well actually it’s almost one in the afternoon but as usual I’m behind but to be fair blogger wouldn’t cooperate and upload my pictures for me. Anyhow it’s my Birthday! Yup, one year older. I’m not too happy about turning a year older – the big 44 this year – but I woke up feeling good and so far the day is going well so I’m happy! I’m going to have dinner with my family and a good friend of mine tonight so I’m looking forward to that.
Buddy is doing ok. He’s still having good and bad days but at least now he seems to be eating better on a regular basis. He likes the macaroni. I mix it with a little of his chicken broth and he likes that. This morning though he wanted to play a little. He decided he didn’t want any more macaroni until I started tossing the pieces to him. They became much more exciting after that. lol.
I’m doing ok. I went to the doc this past week and got news I didn’t really want. It turns out after all these years of being good, my blood pressure has decided to head south. So, I’ve put myself on a majorly salt restricted diet – in other words, none! – and I’m going to fit in more exercise and lose a good 20 lbs and see if that helps. I’m hoping it does because I want to avoid meds if I can. I’m a major salt-a-holic so this has been a big change for me but I’ll do just about anything to not take pills. lol. So wish me luck with losing the weight,having less stress and bringing that blood pressure down.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the blog and I’m going to be making some changes. First I want a cleaner and simpler template and I think I found what I want. Secondly I think I’ll be getting rid of the followers widget. I just want my blog to be about more than how many followers there are on it – I want people to visit because they want to! So anyway that’s what’s coming as soon as I get everything organized on my test blog and figure out how to do it all without losing most everything. lol.
Books – I’ve got a few reviews coming this week and a guest post:

Wow, what a busy week on my blog! Later today I’ll be drawing for a few draws I’m behind on. Sorry for that as well. I’m getting there. I think I’m going to get back into blogging and commenting more as I think that used to really relax me as well!
So, I’ll leave you with a pic of Buddy doing what he does best – nothing! However, when you’re as cute as he is that’s ok. lol.
