Good morning. I can't believe another week has gone by, but here we are again. It's looking like a really nice (though very warm) day here. I was outside yesterday evening and even as warm as it's been lately, I can sense a feeling of "fall" in the air. Trees are beginning to drop leaves already and the grass isn't growing as fast. I realized the other day that we aren't that far from a new year!!
It's been really quiet here over the past week. I had my dermatology appointment on Wed and the doctor zapped off little "pre-cancer" lesion from my arm. It's still a bit itchy, but better to have it gone than turn into a full-fledged skin cancer.
You probably don't remember, but my last thyroid ultrasound showed a "moderately suspicious" nodule and it's time to get another ultrasound to see what the status of that nodule is.
I'm beginning to work on a couple of new calligraphy projects, which is fun and keeps me from doing as much sitting since it also involves woodworking and I need to spend time in the shop in order to work on the project. It also means a lot of trips back and forth between the shop and the house, since my calligraphy supplies are inside. Anyway, I'm gong to start working on that today - might even finish today - who knows?
I'm back to the weight I was a couple of weeks ago. I'm not sure what caused that several pound gain, but I can only assume it was fluid buildup since it's gone and I haven't changed anything else. With cooler weather, I'll be able to begin my evening walks again and hopefully, my winter walking partner will be back soon so we'll be able to resume our morning walks. I'm hoping that will keep me going and help drop off some more pounds.
All of that said - as of yesterday (haven't weighed this morning), I'm down 3 lbs from last week, so I'll take it and hope for more this week.
So - that's my story... what's yours? I hope you had a great week and were able to meet/exceed whatever goal(s) you had set for yourself. I look forward to hearing about them.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
