It's All Good

Got a good report from the doctor, still waiting on bloodwork but expect that to be good as well.  Was happy not to have to wear a monitor or have a bunch of tests.  Had a EKG which was normal and after listening to my heart, he told me I should live to be a old woman.  Oh my, I thought I already was there ..lol Added a beta blocker to my bp meds and I'm waiting for that to take effect.  Still had palpitations today, though, of course wasn't having any when I was in his office.

Was tired all day, probably because I stayed up much later than usual but still woke up at the usual 4:30 a.m. Gave serious consideration to a nap, but was just nodding off when the phone rang and never got back to that. Watched two rather decent movies last night, "Dear White People", a satire on racial relations on a college campus and "The Good LIe" which is about the Lost Boys of Sudan.  I had watched a documentary on these boys a few years ago and am very moved by situation, their bravery, all they went through.. so poignant and so very sad, yet at the same time these boys/now men show amazing strength of character.

Today is my granddaughter, Lainey's, 11th birthday and she is celebrating with all her cousins at a skating rink in a nearby city.  I opted out of that party - no way this old woman is getting out on a skating rink though I did love to roller skate as a child.  Tomorrow she will be here and I am making as per her request a giant M & M cookie cake, so looking forward to all of that.

Amazing temperatures for this time of year.. slightly over 60 today which is a record.  Interestingly enough on this same date last year we set a record for low temps.

Finally conquered short rows in my latest knitting project and have another hat underway.  Thinking it's about time to get it all boxed off and sent to the reservations up North. Have a couple of new patterns I want to try first.  It's great to knit hats for little ones as tey go so fast and I am impatient.

Good to see the sun coming up earlier, no signs of Spring outside yet though sometimes the early crocus show up in February.

I had never heard the word you closed your post with and being a curious soul, I had to look it up. Beautiful! Now that word is in my head and I'll not forget it as long as I still have my mind and memory with me.

Glad your report was good from the doctor, and had to smile when I read "....he told me I should live to be a old woman." I would have thought the same as you did.

The two movies you watched sound interesting, and I will google to find out about them.

Yes, sounds like you are getting an early spring. Hope it's not a false alarm for you.

So nice to read of your close relationship with your granddaughter, Lainey. How many grandchildren do you have?

Glad that word feels good to you...

We usually have a January thaw. Have been planting lettuce on Valentine's Day for lotsa years. March often has springlike feel....can't wait!

I have 8 grandchildren, ages 29-6. Our darling, Sarah, is included in that number though she died when she was 2...there are 3 boys, 5 girls...plus 2 great grandsons..the offspring of 4 daughters.

Do you have grandchildren?

Re: living to be an old woman...if I'm not f***** old now...what else is still to come?;)
