A Walk in the Woods
Court this morning followed by a meeting. Home by noon. I visited with a neighbor and decided to take a walk in the woods in my neighborhood.
The colors were gorgeous.
I didn't take the girls because I was in the mood for contemplation. If Jezebel was with me, she'd be yanking my arm out of socket and heading for Alaska to join a sled team. I'd be waving back at Governor Palin as Jezebel dragged me by.
This area is literally around the block from my house. Walking about 7 minutes gets me there. If I go through the woods behind my house, call it 30 seconds.
I was watched while I walked:
Anyone who reads my blog regularly knows how much I long to return home to Oklahoma. There IS no place like home. However, sometimes on days like these, it really hits me how fortunate I am to live in my current neighbohood. It is really just so beautiful and I know I don't appreciate it as much as I should.
I walked around for about 45 minutes. Once I got back home, I made phone calls all afternoon. All in all, an excellent day.
And here is my latest project:
Anyone who has ever worked that pattern can probably see where I am going with it.
Spoke to the doctor about the CT Scan. They aren't going to appeal. I'm to go talk to him, next week. I suspect he will tell me that we should just check it again in a couple of months and see how it goes. Ya think?
Last year, a friend had a suspicious lump and was sent in for a mammogram. It turned out to be nothing but her GYN wanted her to go back for a second mammogram, this year. Because she is under age 40, the insurance refused to pay for it, notwithstanding that her specialist recommended it be done. Maybe this goes on all the time and I wasn't aware of it, but I also have to wonder if the insurance companies are responding to the economic crunch by severely limiting diagnostic tests.
