#bfc #bookfitnesschallenge

Once again I forgot to hit pause while walking when stopping to chat this afternoon. Finished the tagged book this week, so keeping up with the book part of the challenge. Not sure I will make the fitness goals- tomorrow I have tutoring then going to an author event, Martha Hall Kelly, of Lilac Girls and List Roses. So no walking time.

My walk today.The time is off because once I hit 2.09 miles I hit pause instead of stop. I was talking at length with a neighbor I ran into. When I hit pause it was a little over a 40 minute walk.

#LitsyLove

Thank you so much for all this love💕💕 Littens! I really needed it the last two weeks so it was wonderful to hear from you all. I am behind in my replies but have the time & energy to begin today. My hand/ arm nerve injury due to a needle stick to my nerve when giving blood has hampered my writing. Fortunately the MD does not think it‘s permanent but may take months to heal. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

tpixie ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ hope you heal fast! (edited) 4d
rjsthumbelina I had the same thing happen to me while giving blood years ago! It did heal, but it took quite a while. And I still get some weird tingles in that hand from time to time. Feel better! 4d

Took a much needed personal day, and am having coffee on the porch waiting for the the deluge of rain that is threatening. We only had two days this week without rain and I was at work of course. Hoping to fit a walk in before these ominous clouds burst. Quite cool; in sweats! A cold wet spring- if you can call it that. 🌂🌧

Slow week; too much rain. Sun came out today but worked until 6:30 so under a mile today. Not my usual 2 mile walk. Loved the carved wooden bear.

Weekly summary:Did not meet my goals this week for exercise. Goal was 6 miles. I only walked appx 2.9, way off. Met book goal: read one book.

guinsgirlreads Still good!! 6d

Tagged book- quick read set in New York City. Young reporter called back to her estranged father‘s side when he is found in his apartment unconscious after a vicious attack. Suspects largely from the Italian Dept at NYC University, where he father taught his specialty, Dante. Oranges for Christmas, buddy read with a student about a family separated by the Berlin wall & their daring escape plan to the West to reunite. Alice Pendlebury: some magic

kspenmoll Alice has a gift- her refined, magical sense of smell allows her to create perfumes that contain memories, create places, people, etc. She goes on an exotic journey in Turkey in search of fulfilling a fortunetellers prophecy. In doing so she discovers family, uncovers her true self, & what love and home is for her. (edited) 2w

#coffeeandbooks
Treating myself to cinnamon muffin & coffee after hearing that my “nerve bruise” (for lack of a better word) that has my whole right arm burning may last a few more months. When I gave blood last February,Red Cross stuck a nerve. would be more tolerable but it‘s my right arm & I am righ handed- it‘s amazing what we do with our arms that either I cannot do or increases pain. Like texting. Thanks for listening my Litsy friends!

Clwojick 😬😬😬😬I feel your pain! I had one on the top half of my left arm, and it was like that from September until April. 😑 It slowly fades. At first it was so bad that my sweater rubbing on my skin felt like fire, but after a few weeks it just feels numb and tingly when you rub it. I honestly thought it was never going to feel normal again, but it finally does! 2w
julesG I can't believe this happened while donating blood. ??? Hope it gets better rather sooner than later. As a person with MS I can say, sensibility issues are something I hate, but have become a "normal" thing for me. Still, sweaters, trousers, underwear feeling like they are chafing on a sunburn are driving me nuts. @Clwojick 2w
4thhouseontheleft I‘m so sorry! And for that to happen when you are doing a good deed by donating blood! 😔 2w

kspenmoll @4thhouseontheleft Thanks for your kindness. It was my first time donating too. Go figure! 2w
kspenmoll @julesG I know you struggle with this & a friend of mine with MS does it. I hope today is a good one for you! 😘 2w
julesG Yep, today is rather good. The plus side of hay-fever. ? My PT uses something called "intra sonic massage" when I have issues with my hands and fingers. It's like a deep tissue massage without being a massage. Maybe your PT has one of these massage wands and can try it with you. https://novafon.com/us/therapy. 2w

#tickbite #coffeeandaudiobook
It‘s darkening & rainy early evening. After getting a tick removed, I stopped here to take a first dose of Doxycycline.Why are med people so adverse to giving out the right antibiotic for deer tick? It was engorged, really sore & burning which is why I finally noticed it. I had to insist on doxycycline. I am pretty sure I got it when I dug Em out from under the porch a week ago. 😡 several readers here with me. 📚😄

Crazeedi Doxy is the right antibiotic for the tick bite! So sorry to hear about this, we have to be so careful where I live, woods and such on property, hubby has had tick bites that had to be treated twice. We now spray our clothes with permethrin, not skin with that, just clothes, shoes. Hope you heal quickly 3w

kspenmoll @Crazeedi I spray hiking clothes with permethrin too but not my regular clothes! Think I got it from my cat who got out,then got scared & ran under our porch. Had to dig them pull her out. We tested the cats but did not think to check myself! Thanks for your kind thoughts! 3w

This is where I start my walks- from my front porch.While this magnificent magnolia is in bloom, I just had to share it. Cloudy sky picture was from Monday; the other two blue sky were from today. We planted this tree the spring after Robert was born, 24 years ago. It never has failed to bloom, even the spring after our October storm of 2011, when ice, wind, downed power lines, caused it to split & we were not sure of its recovery.

- rain predicted but mostly sunny day! Family porch time😄
- Em- cat escaped outdoors - long story but I literally sat vigil hoping she would find her way out from under the porch where she trapped herself- dug a tunnel for her & she
finally understood, poked her head in it & I grabbed her-
-Costco run

LiteraryinLititz I‘m so glad she is back home! That sounds like a scary ordeal. 💜 1mo
kspenmoll @LiteraryinLititz It was. I was afraid to leave & afraid she would take hours to figure out how to get out. There is lattice there & I would have had to saw a home if the tunnel didn‘t work. Thanks for understanding! 1mo

When I join my husband on the couch after dinner, I usually have a book to read just in case...we have a “tradition” of watching nightly news together, then some nights, different other news shows. He is an ex-reporter so he does not tire of domestic/world news. (unlike his wife who needs to escape into a book some nights).

Coffee with Em on my lap. She has been following me everywhere this week. I cannot sit or lie down for a second & she is on me cuddling. She pushes books away, knocks them off my bedside table. If not on me or next to me she cries & follows me all around. I go back to work next week. She will be a sad kitty, but will either hide or gravitate towards Frank until she gets used to the routine again. 😿😻💚
