Morning Appointments

This is a week of get up early....out the door....off to an appointment. Monday it was for a fasting lab. My Doctors office is 'just around the corner' from our house. I thought giving myself 10 minutes was plenty of time. But the traffic!! It took so long for me to be able to make a left turn at the end of our street.....I got there right at 8.

Yesterday Ellen had a Dr. Appointment in York. Thankfully it takes about 20 minutes to get there from where we live now. It used to take 45-60 minutes! After seeing the Dr. we stopped at Big Lots in York. That store is so much bigger and more organized than the closer Lancaster location. We found some goodies we had to have :)

When leaving the store, we all had to stop to let the geese leisurely cross the road. There were a bunch of them and hurrying was not of importance to them!!

 
Also yesterday I got a haircut. That's always a feel good appointment!

This morning I see my Doctor to go over the lab results. My fasting blood sugar was higher than 6 months ago. That's not what I wanted to see. It's not a lot higher but certainly isn't going in the right direction. 

I love a beautiful sky and was blessed to see this as Ellen and I were leaving CVS last evening. 

Good as I could get with the phone.

My sister-in-law takes beautiful photographs. This is what she captured from her home. 



So beautiful!! I could see the red through the trees when I got home. What amazing artwork our God provides!

Wishing you a blessed Wednesday. 

P. S. Today it took me 3 whole minutes to get to the same office that I went to on Monday....when I used up 10!!
