   It is suppose to be 97 degrees out today.  To hot to ride.  I have packages to mail and the library says the book I wanted is in so I have to go there.  The book is Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog.  I hear it is a great book.  I read alot since I have no TV. 

    Then when all my chores are done I hope to hit the gym.  I haven't been for weeks.  When  I ride for 3 hours I don't want to work out for another 2 hours.  Since I can't ride in this heat the treadmill will have to do and I want to get back to lifting weights.  I do the weight training for my bones.  Light weights will help the bones and I want my dextra scan to be better.  It was awful the last time I had it done.  He told me not to fall off of my bike because my back or hips could easily break.  All the spills I took over the years I have never broke anything except a finger and toe.  I did break my back lifting a patient once but it was because of my Spina bifida.  I had some bones that weren't fused together and when I lifted the patient they broke off.  Painful.

   Maybe a cold sandwich would be good for supper and I should make that low fat potato salad.   I never did look for the recipe. 

   Anyway that is my day.  Hope not to cook it is so hot.  I want to clean house also but it will wait until tonight when it is cooler.  I also have to take some Lasix as my edema is terrible again.  I cut down on my water.  I can't drink that much when I am not riding as I just retain it.  The joys of aging just go on and on.....

    I never like cooking when it is this hot.  I don't have central air and only have air conditioning in my bedrooms.  We will probably grill as I can't afford to eat out every night.    I had slimfast for breakfast and I am going to make a tomatoe salad with some of the tomatoes picked.  They are so good.
