Good morning. It's a lovely day here in New England. The sun is shining and the temperature is 77F degrees. Today's highs should get up around ninety degrees. The weather app on my phone says we have rain coming the next three days, but somehow I just don't believe it.
Yesterday afternoon we had storm warnings. There was a lot of rain and wind headed our way. Well, the sun went in, the sky was gray, and I waited for the rain. It took a while, but eventually all forty four raindrops got here. Around seven o'clock the storm had passed and the sun came out again. Just in time to go back in for the night.
The day was uneventful here. Pogo and I just snuggled and napped a lot all day. When I first took my blood pressure reading, it was quite low. I looked it up on Google and it said to eat something with salt in it. So I did. I had me a tasty microwave meal with a good amount of salt in it. After a while I took my blood pressure reading again and it was much better.
I guess I just did too good a job of watching my salt intake and went below the necessary amount. I learn something new every day. Now I will have to make sure that I get at least enough salt in my food every day.
The doctor's office called with my lab results and my kidneys are okay, but I will most likely have to go for periodical labs to keep an eye on them. I'll have to be careful to drink enough liquids each day, but not go over my quota. Eating is becoming a challenge.
The mailman just came and brought me a new batch of catalogues and junk mail. I've added this to yesterday's batch. My project today will be to go through it all and get rid of most of it. I'm feeling better today and if it keeps up, I'll try to fill another bag this afternoon for the Good Will.
I found an image on the web that looks just like my very first computer. It was so much easier to use than today's machines.
My friend Beth sent me a beautiful scrap page that I thought I would share. Thank you Beth, I love it. It's all about spending cherished time with our daughters.
Before I go let me share a cute thought that I found on the web. Somehow this seems to fit me most every day. hahaha.
Now I'm off to catch up on some blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
