Good afternoon. I'm running late again today. We've been having some pretty nasty weather (heavy rain/wind), so it's not a very nice day. I keep hoping it's going to be over soon and the sun will come out, but it looks like the rain is going to hang in here for a while.
It's been a pretty quiet week - I didn't even have any doctor's appointments, etc, though I did go for my semi-annual kidney x-ray on Tuesday in preparation for my urology appointment in a couple of weeks.
I've been practicing my calligraphy and preparing for a couple of large classes that are coming up at the end of the month and during the summer (that's translated to: ordering supplies aka spending money...lol). I've also been busy trying to find cabinets to go in the room I've taken over as my "work room" for doing calligraphy and whatever painting that goes along with it. I finally broke down and bought a new cabinet and we got it hung up late Friday afternoon. We went to an estate sale on Saturday and I found a little curio cabinet that will work perfectly, as well, so I got it, too. It's in my shop, sanded and prepared for priming/painting. That should take care of my cabinet needs to a while. Who'd have thought one could collect SO many things for calligraphy? After all, it seems to be "just writing", but it's not that simple. :-)
I've still been walking every morning and have done a few things outside since the weather warmed up. My neighbor will be leaving on Tuesday to go back to Oregon for the summer, so I won't be walking every morning. When I'm on my own, I typically, walk in the evening. That means I won't be getting up so early in the mornings and, hopefully, will get better sleep.
I've also been trying to cut back on the amount I'm eating. Walking, eating less and the increase in replacement thyroid hormones I got, have allowed me to drop a pound this past week. It's not a lot, but at least, is going the right direction. I'm hoping to be able to continue dropping a pound a week, but we'll see how it goes.
So - how about you? I hope you've been able to meet whatever goal(s) you set for yourself and look forward to hearing about it.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
