So here's a tidbit I just learned (always learning something is good right?) Apparently taking vitamin supplement BIOTIN is a no no when you are having blood work pulled. I get my thyroid none fasting pulled annually and this is the first time I have seen a sign at the lab about this and my Drs have never mentioned it. so strange. Anyway, I googled it and it turns out some of the chemicals they use include biotin or something so it interferes with the results. "Who knew?!!" Unfortunately I did not but since I have been doing this for years maybe it's all good. I will ask my endocrinologist during my appt. I did know that the 2nd Covidvaccine could interfere with mammogram results due to enlarged lymph nodes so I ended up delaying that and my Thyroid sono for 6 weeks to make sure I did not get some crazy results. I suspect that the vaccine does some interesting things to us during it's work to help us produce t cells and suck longer term so none of this is surprising. I am no expert just sharing information for us olders which you can research further if you want.

If it were't for wanting to travel again, I wouldn't have gotten the vaccine at all. I'm scheduled for the second dose next week. 😬😬 I hate the idea that we are basically forced to get this shot. This info didn't help ease my mind. Who knows what else they are going to find as more data becomes available.

Just popping in to say "hi, and welcome" to the new participants (and "hi" to those who've been here longer, too). Do post now and then to let us know how things are going, or if you're wrassling any obstacles we might be able to help with!@annliz23, your dogs are so cute at play: What fun!
I finally got in my first on-water row of the season, rowing bow in a double shell with my friend J. (who's 73 . . . or is it 74?), and one of the strongest women I know. It was a little cool and a tiny bit choppy, but manageable (and we warmed up fast once we got going); and my bladework/steering skills are a bit rusty after a Winter of only rowing on a machine (but that will sort itself out in the coming weeks). I created and broke open blisters on both hands in spots that tell me I'm over-gripping the oar handles, so that's a thing I need to deal with very soon.
Beyond that, life is pretty quiet, just daily routine. I'll throw in the usual garden pic, though. (This one is a Primrose (Primula sp.), amongst Japanese Painted Ferns (Athyrium niponicum), and a little variegated Sedge (Carex sp.). There are also a few dropped flowers from Maple or other trees, or flowers.)
Hope everyone's having a great week!

Happy Thursday! Well after doing the yard yesterday and pool work, I'm back at my pre-birthday weight. All that rain in Texas made double grass. I am in the market for a decent bike if anybody could suggest one in the 200-600 range.

will be 65 this year and have a few pounds I would like to lose. The older I get the harder it is to lose.
