No poetry writing today, but it was a good day nonetheless. I got up late in the morning, puttered about online for a while, and then went out to shovel snow. It was tidying up, really -- queenmomcat did most of the shoveling yesterday. With her back in its current state, she can push snow around, but she can't (or isn't supposed to) lift shovelfuls of snow. I can do the latter, and that's what I did today: lifting the piles she left onto the snow banks already on our property.
After that, and after showering and dressing in cleaner clothes, I drove down to the south end of town for an appointment with my nutritionist. It was a good appointment. My weight is down, and I got official confirmation that the results of my latest blood tests were good. (Basically, my A1C levels -- the three-month running blood glucose average -- is down to pre-diabetic levels.) There are still some areas of concern with my diet (but fried foods are so tasty), but that's for me to work on.
While in the waiting room, I started reading another book of poetry: Sara Eliza Johnson's Bone Map. It's one of my birthday books this year, and I'm enjoying it so far. I didn't get very far in it, though, and I didn't pick it up again after I got home. Instead, I spent some more time on the computer and then took a nap. I got up in enough time to help queenmomcat prepare spaghetti sauce for dinner, although it was pretty late by then. I'll be headed off to bed soon, later than I would have liked. I have a subbing assignment tomorrow morning I have to be up early for, but I've subbed on too little sleep before. It's not fun, but I can do it.
