Good morning. I hope everyone is doing well today. I know we have some bad storms hitting parts of the country, so hoping everyone weathers those in good shape. It's going to be another hot day here... We've been close to 100° for the past few days, with heat index (feels like) at around 107°. In addition, although I complained of all the rain we got a few weeks ago, we've completely swung the opposite direction so it's becoming really dry again. Seems like we could hit a happy medium...
Other than the weather, there's not a lot going on - at least, nothing exciting. I'm still practicing my painting and calligraphy most days, but have also tried to work in my woodshop, as well. It's kind of hard to spend a lot of time there in the heat, but I can get in a few hours if I go out early in the day. I do a lot of sweating when I work there and always feel like I should lose some weight from all the sweating, but all I only feel miserable - swollen and bloated. :-)
I did get out and go for a walk a couple of nights this week, but again, the heat makes that pretty miserable unless I wait until almost dark, then it's not necessarily safe. I'm sure it's going to cool off soon, then I'll be complaining that it's too cold!! LOL
I'm still trying to watch what/how much I eat which is going relatively well. My weight is bouncing around (up to 3 lbs difference some days), so it's really hard to tell exactly. I, typically, accept the lower weight because if I weren't having fluid issues, that's where I'd be. For the most part, I think I'm about where I was last week, though I haven't weighed yet today...
Our anniversary is on Wednesday of this coming week and we plan to go out for a nice lunch. That means I'll have to be really careful all week, because I'm sure I'll eat more than I should for that lunch. That's okay, though.
So that's my story... what's yours? I know some kids are back in school and others have yet to get started, though I'm sure everyone is busy adjusting to new routines (or getting ready to). Whatever is going on, I hope you've managed to meet/exceed whatever goal(s) you set for yourself and look forward to hearing about them.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
**Stay safe and wash your hands**
