I’ve been quiet on my blog again. I did try hard in October to post every day. I guess I’m just not destined to be a daily blogger. There are too many other things in life to experience. I did manage to keep up with others’ blogs even if my own sat idle. I decided I could take a break. 

I finally heard back from my doctor. My heart test results were all normal. My blood pressure reads are all down with the addition of a new medicine. I’m also down 8.5 pounds, and I’ve successfully tracked everything I’ve eaten and stayed within my calorie limit for 23 straight days. Baby steps but all positive steps forward. I feel better already. I had some more blood work done today. My doctor thanked me for taking such great care of myself. 

I’ve got a kindle full of books to read. There never seems to be time to fit reading in, too, no matter how much I want to read and do nothing else. I wish I could be a professional reader and get paid to read for a living. I’ve also been writing again, enjoying creating my own characters and stories. 


I’ve been listening to a lot of music this week. Shinedown is still my obsession, and I’ve been listening a lot to two of their albums, Amaryllis and the Sound of Madness

Here’s a few pictures I took this week. Our local Wegmans has the Christmas wrapping paper and Christmas cookie cutters out already (October 26th).


The very next day it snowed enough to coat my car. I woke up and snapped this picture. 


The same day it snowed I snapped a picture of the celosia in the planters downtown. 


And I’ll leave you with something from a new app that was suggested to me – mematic.

  2. Great news re your health, the most important thing of all. I would set yourself a little less demanding schedule for your blog posts, if I were you and give yourself a bit more time for reading. I certainly cannot see myself posting every day. My ambition is for four posts per week but I know I am going to even find that hard.
    I read every day at some point usually just before sleep but I have also read much more this summer by listening to audio books when I am doing housework and driving. I have found this is a great way to get through more of the books I want to read. Hey, and great work with the calorie counting!

    1. Thanks, Wendy. I think I’ll try to blog less/read more as you suggested. I’ve wondered about audio books. I haven’t done them because my commute is only five miles and that’s when I call my hubby using the Bluetooth in my car (he’s a trucker who is only home weekends). When I do housework I usually have music playing. I’m not sure I’d ever use them.
