Good morning. I hope everyone is off to a good start this morning. It's pretty cloudy here and I think we're supposed to get some rain. The good news is that it's also 70° and getting warmer, so although wet, it won't be cold.
I've have kind of a busy week. I had my cardiology appointment on Wednesday. That was a follow-up to the echochardiogram the week before. Unfortunately, I still have some issues; fortunately, they aren't causing any trouble right now and the cardio was very happy with my echo.
I've also been working on Christmas cards and attended a calligraphy study group. I think I'm finished with all my Christmas cards, except the one I'm working on right now. It's pretty time consuming when you try to make them yourself, as I've done this year, but it's kind of fun designing the artwork and coming up with nice phrases to put on them. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to make them all - I'd have to have gotten started in April to do that, so some people did have to get purchased cards. I've got most of my shopping done, except for a couple of last minute items - one in particular is a good friend who has everything under the sun and if she wants something else, she gets it!! Yeah, what do buy that person, when they're like I am and don't want to spend time dusting knick knacks?? Anyway, I'll think of something, even if it ends up being a gift card!!
Anyway, I do stay busy and you'd thing with all that "activity" I should be losing weight like crazy. Again, unfortunately, that's not the case, but fortunately, I haven't gained any either, which leaves me almost where I was last week and the week before. I just entered my weight into my tracker and oops!! I'm actually down by 0.4 lbs, which is, basically, where I've been. Anyway, I'm hoping to start going down some more, but we'll have to see about that. I know most people say that diet is the majority of weight control, but that doesn't hold true for me, unless I starve myself... I have to get that exercise to use up calories or all I do i spin my wheels.
Anyway, this coming week will be another busy one. I have a calligraphy meeting tomorrow, which includes a pot luck luncheon, so I have to make a dish for that today. And of course, I have to finish getting ready for Christmas. Daughter and her significant other will be here on Christmas Eve, so I'll be cooking a light dinner that night. Christmas Day will just be husband and myself and I plan to cook a regular Christmas dinner for us.
I hope this finds everyone doing well and successful at meeting your goals.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
