Good morning. Tis cloudy today and the temperature is 73F degrees. My phone app says we are having light rain, but I don't see any rain. Temps today will get up into the mid eighties. As I type, the sun is trying to peek out from behind a cloud, and there's a lovely breeze.
Well I had my first appointment with my new heart doctor and it went well. I brought the notebook that I've been keeping and my wrist blood pressure kit. He took my blood pressure first, and then again with my kit to make sure they were reading the same. They were.
My blood pressure is coming down, but not enough so he increased one of my meds. Hopefully, this will do the trick. I have another appointment for six months from now. There was a difference of four pounds between his scale and my scale. However, the problem was my scale. It seems to have gotten stuck on one weight. So, I put an item on the scale that only weighted a few pounds. Afterwards, I weighted myself again on my scale. Aha! That did the trick! Now my scale reads the same as the doctor's scale.
Just before we left my house, the mailman came and brought me some lovely surprises. They were get well cards from two of my great grandchildren, Jack Jack and Lilah. They've been making me hand drawn cards since they were tiny tots.
What a great way to put a smile on my face that lasts all day! I am so blessed!
Tomorrow is another busy day. If I'm up in the wee hours, I'll blog then. If not, I may not get to blog at all. Pogo has an early morning appointment at the beauty salon, and then he has an appointment in the afternoon with his doctor to get caught up on his shots and have an overall checkup. We also need to get a refill for his flea medicine because we only have one more treatment left.
I think today I may try to fill up a bag for the Goodwill folks. I have a lot of clothes that I don't wear, and a lot of extra blankets that I really don't need. This would be a good time to recycle them. I also have a couple items that I want to package and put in the mail. As for my crocheting, I'm finding it difficult to concentrate on it for very long. So this means that it is going very slowly.
Now I'm going to figure out some meals for the next couple days. I want to try using up some of the food in the freezer. Then I can make up a new shopping list. I want to pick up some bags of frozen diced green peppers and onions. These items go bad when I buy them fresh and don't get to use them up soon enough. When I get them, I shall make a meatloaf.
Before I leave today, I have an image to share that I borrowed from the web. Please remember to be kind to all animals. They are God's children too.
I'm off now. So, till tomorrow (or Friday) Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
