Good morning... I'm sorry about the late post; it's been a hectic morning already. I hope everyone is getting started with a nice day and having a good, safe Memorial weekend. It's bright and sunny here, looks like a beautiful day, though I know it will be very hot as the day goes on. I'll take that over some of the alternatives I've been hearing about around the country.
My post will be pretty short this morning as it's been pretty quiet here lately. Friday was my monthly hair cut and I spent most of yesterday hosting a Zoom class for calligraphy. It was a class on how to write calligraphy with a pointed brush - pretty difficult for me, but I'm getting the hang of other styles, so if I keep practicing, I'll get the hang of this, as well.
I'm still watching the amounts of food I'm eating and although I haven't weighed this morning, on Friday, I was down a pound from last week. Yay - I'll take it. I did cook a ham that was a bit salty, so I wouldn't be surprised if I've gone up a pound or 2 since then, but at long as I know it's fluid, I can live with it. My doctor told me I could double up on my fluid pills, if I had days in which I retained more, so I might have to do that later. It does make a huge difference, both in my weight and the way I feel.
I've been trying to make sure I do some simple stretches every day as it does help with my muscle cramps. Even though I'm not doing anything strenuous, it does seem to help with the weight, as well. Probably, just the movement is what what helps.
I've already got lunch in the oven and am on my way out to work in my shop today. I spent one early in the week getting it all cleaned up (as much as you can clean up sawdust that infiltrates every nook and cranny). I have orders for 2 pens that I need to deliver on Tuesday, so I'm going to work on those today. I also have pieces cut for a quilt rack I'm making for a contest for our woodworking club. I'll finish that over the next week, as I just have to drill holes and screw it together.
Anyway, lunch is cooking and I'm off to get busy. I hope you've all had a great week and reached whatever goal(s) you set for yourself.
~~Have a wonderful, successful week~~
