A day spent out πŸ˜‰

These don’t come by often anymore 😁 Today, I had a hematology appointment and PT πŸ™ŒπŸ½

Fortunately, my doctor appointments have become unremarkable, so I’ll start checking in yearly 😁 It was a good opportunity to draw blood 🩸 since it flowed well, that meant I was well hydrated πŸ‘πŸ½

After that, went to my PT

Got on the bike 🚴 6 minutes
With +1 resistance πŸ‘πŸ½

Then I did 2 x 10 sit to stands (STS)

3 x 10 theraband rows

3 x 10 theraband

Sinful Wallflowers

This series is still going on but includes:

  1. My Darling Duke
  2. Her Wicked Marquess
  3. A Scoundrel Of Her Own

My favorite book is My Darling Duke 😁 Might reread it πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‰β˜ΊοΈ Originally read via audiobook, but heard it’s better as a ebook (can’t read it physical). Read My Darling Duke pre-blog, all via audio (at that time not reading with my eyes πŸ‘€ yet)

Read πŸ‘†πŸΌHer Wicked Marquss

A Scoundrel Of Her Own is the newest addition and was kindly offered to me β™₯️ That’s never happened before! The gesture was very kind 😁 But, seeing as I read mostly via kindle or audiobook, I wanted to save it for someone else. πŸ˜‰ But noticed, yesterday, I preordered it on my kindle but I forgot πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈExcited to have it!

Just read πŸ‘‡πŸΌ
