I was Sparking this morning and the phone rang, it was one of my walking buddies. She was asking if we can walk today--Yes for sure. Then the next question is WHERE!!!
I wear cleats to walk in snow and she wanted to walk outdoors. I arranged to meet at the library since I am the only one in town they are out of town with few sidewalks out there.
That means it is up to me to look out for the places to walk. The rail trail looked really well cleared it is hot top so it was actually dry so I was anxious to walk it..
Another Buddy met us at the library and she needed to stay closer to the library because she had an appointment.
We decided to walk along the middle of the side streets. We found some streets had sidewalks cleared by the sidewalk plow and then where the plow had stopped we had to walk around the snow.
I was glad to have worn my cleats it is always a great idea to have boots with cleats stashed in the vehicle because one can go in to a store and it snows while I am in there and I dislike walking on snow or ice but it has to be done so I take my slip on shoes in to the store and change and likewise I change my shoes to boots in the door way as I leave. I am surprised how many people think that is a smart thing to do but I do believe vanity prevents them from following my example.
I had to wear them when I had my back surgery. I was afraid I would fall down but I have become so used to them, there's no problem for me to do it. People look let them look I have to feel safe.
I sometimes wear cleats inside the stores so I hear click-click- click and watch people look at my feet.
When I got back to the library I looked at the Audio books. I am hoping to be able to do chores listening to a book.
I cannot sit with my lap top if TV is on I simply cannot concentrate so I thought I would try this to see if I can do house work or sewing and listen to Audio books. I have been doing very little reading and would like to get back to it and back to my sewing machine for a while.
As my title shows I got over 10,000 steps so I know I can do it.
I had blood work done today and a Dr appointment first one of the day tomorrow so I must stop here and get to my bed.
My blood work was ordered non-fasting for lipids I am not too happy about that. Anyone else has non fasting lipid profiles ordered by your Dr. It is supposed to be the new trend. I just hope it is not a mistake.
Thanks for listening Pat in Maine.
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
