This and That

January 18th, 2018 at 05:47 am

The down coat has been dried and is now hanging in the bathroom until the last bit of dampness is gone. My grandson had a bag of new tennis balls and I borrowed three of them. Worked like a charm.

I had a nice day with my grandson yesterday. We went to lunch ($17) and to the library. At the library, I spent $1 on a book at the continuous book sale. It will be a gift for DIL later in the year. I also spent $2 for parking.

I came very close to falling down the stairs! I lost my footing and I caught myself -- in the process, I wrenched my knee, but that was better than falling. I was wearing boots with a lot of traction and they caught on the stair's carpeting. I'm feeling very grateful I didn't fall, because the last time I did that I broke my ankle. And my ankle has never been the same.

My knee is a little wonky, but not bad.

I got the blood tests results, and it looks to me like everything is within range except for creatinine, which is the indicator of kidney disease. I didn't compare it to last year's, but I am still far away from kidney failure. Of course, I don't really know anything for sure until my doctor interprets the results next Wednesday. I did notice that my Vitamin D level has risen, but is still a bit below normal range.

My friend K is coming to town on Friday, just for the evening, and we are planning to go out to dinner at an Italian restaurant.

My variables rate is only 41%, with less than a week to go.

    I'm glad you are okay! I've been working on getting my Vitamin D level up. So many of us are deficient. I'm actually in the normal range, but on the very low end. I believe 70 or 80 is optimal, so that's what I'm aiming for.
