135 this partly cloudy morning, 119 at bedtime last night. Don’t know where that fbg came from, oh well...

It was good to get out to shop and run errands. My bird seed supply was getting pretty low. The last couple of evenings 3-4 deer have been coming by and cleaning up any seed the birds left behind.

It was 40° again today, but this evening it is lightly snowing.

13,331 steps yesterday.

That is very true Wally. I just go by what the stepz app says the conversion is.

8168 steps yesterday.  I guess it makes it better for a lot of people to understand when they see distance, like miles, rather than steps  The problem is that it is different for everyone depending on how long their stride is.  With my short legs I have a stride of only 25 inches and 10,000 steps is equal to 4 miles.  if I had a more average stride of 30 inches the 10,000 steps would be equal to 5 miles.  Same number of steps but another mile.  That is why steps is a better way to express how much someone walks but it can be hard for someone that doesn't know the comparison.

Change is not a four letter word...but often your reaction to it is!

As I get older it seems more difficult to deal with change.  Something about old dogs and new tricks I believe.   :)

113 this morning.

We are to reach 30 deg F today so hopefully some of the ice will melt.  We, too, have had much more moisture than usual for our area.  Weather lady said something like 32 inches of snow since Jan 1, 2019. 

Barbara - Hope you enjoy your shopping trip.  It is nice to have a neighbor to plow the driveway so you can get out easier.

127 this morning.

I don’t know, SKB, about the specifics of the study. Trying to balance between insulin and glucagon sounds pretty tricky.

Temperatures from 18 to 41 today. These wide ranges look to be every day for the next week or two.

It is about 5.3 miles. Almost all of it done inside.
Wow. That’s a good number.
