Friday Roundup

Good morning, everyone, and a happy Friday to all.  When I was working, this was the day I always waited for, but it was always the slowest day of the week.  Especially the afternoon.  It just seemed to drag on.

Yesterday was a cool rainy day in Brooklyn. But i got out anyway.  Will not miss my WW meeting for a little rain.  And every day it looks more and more like Autumn.

Taken as I waited for the bus across the street from my house.

Taken while I waited for the bus to come home.  Sometimes Brooklyn doesn't look so pretty, but I love it.  I lived in all the boroughs except for the Bronx, and none are like Brooklyn which is rapidly becoming what they call a 'hipster' area.  Rents are rising sky high, so I consider myself blessed to have found my apartment when I did. 

I lost another 1.6 pounds yesterday.  That makes 15.8 in all.  I am just so motivated this time around.  A health scare will do it to you.  Speaking of health scares, I take my blood pressure twice a day, and it usually averages 124/74 with a normal pulse rate.  Maybe one day I won't have to take this medication anymore...but only under doctor's orders.  I learned my lesson the hard way.

Not much on the agenda this weekend.  I'm still debating if I want to go to exercise today or run tomorrow's errands instead.  (Such big decisions I have)  I also want to plan out Thanksgiving's menu.  It will be here before we know it.  I definitely will make the regulars--turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, and gondulas and rice for hubby--but I plan to make lots of veggies as well.  I also found a new way for my sweet potatoes, one not so laden with brown sugar and butter.  That will be the only one of the regular Thanksgiving dishes I will change.

Well, that's about it for now.  Wishing you all a fantastic, fun filled weekend.
