Walkin' a Bit

Hey, Y'all,
Well, this morning I went online and purchased a couple of tickets to a live production of "Annie" for me to take my friend, Dot, to see and enjoy. Dot is coming to visit next month about this time and we are both looking forward to the visit! For sure! Then, after breakfast, and farming a little, I cleaned the kitchen and decided it would be a good time to try out the Y a little more. I got myself ready and hied myself around the corner and down the street to the Y. I went in and the young lady at the desk showed me around some of the machines and I tried them out.

I had already decided that I wanted to do mostly the treadmill today, so after we had made the rounds and I had tried out the machines, I got on the treadmill and set it for 2.0 miles per hour and walked for 20 minutes. That was enough for today, and I will be going back on Thursday, not tomorrow, since they will be closing at 10 a.m. on tomorrow for Veteran's Day. When I tried out some of the machines while ago, I discovered some muscles that were sore from the yoga workout I did yesterday, so I decided to wait a few days before doing anything but the treadmill.

I have been invited to have supper with Carol this evening. I always look forward to spending time with family. My laundry is in the washing machine, and when I get that dried, I will put it away and that will be finished for another week.

There was no call yesterday from the doctor's office after I gave them the additional blood sample, so I guess I don't need to be taking the potassium that I was taking.

Not much else to talk about today, so this is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. I am going to go have some cereal for lunch and get my fiber in for today. That is about it for now. More later. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. Bye for now.

I hope you enjoy Annie. You're brave going on the treadmill, I can't go on that I get giddy.
I think you are coping wonderfully and is an inspiration to us all.

Thanks to both of you. Walking is important, I know that, and I can do it on the treadmill without it making my back hurt. With spinal stenosis, (narrowing of the spinal canal) anything that involves walking without some kind of support hurts. Pain and I are not strangers, we are constant companions. Like Tonto and Lone Ranger - we ride together. Ha.
Love, Ruby
