|Took pic off the TV while Pope was giving his speech Wed morning|
Interesting times. I really like this Pope. I'm not a religious person although I was raised Catholic and taught by Catholic nuns. But (IMO) I am spiritual... and feel that this Pope is very spiritual. It seems that he can relate to the people on a very basic level... and not everyone can do that.
In general, I stay away from religion, politics, and other confrontational issues in my posts. Not because I don't have opinions, but because I'm not sure this is the place for that. This blog is about day to day life... and although occasional issues may pop up, confrontational issues are not on my agenda (and you're welcome to confront me on that).
Now on to mundane issues:
DH and I went on our neighborhood crime watch patrol ride-along this morning. We joined this a few weeks back and went to a meeting given by the Police explaining how this is done and what to look for, etc. It was very interesting. We were told what we can and can't do, how to report what we see, and basically how to be the neighborhood eyes.
Monday I spent part of the day taking tests at the Cardiologist's. Happy to report that my heart is in good shape... no problems seen. So whatever caused the chest pains is not my heart! So happy! The doctor mentioned other possible causes, but I told him that if it wasn't my heart, I wasn't going to worry about it.
And the bloodwork taken at my primary physician's came back fine also... except for my D3 being low. It's supposed to be 30 - 100 and mine was 14. Told them that I would start taking some over-the-counter Vitamin D... but didn't want to take the Rx 50,000 units... and I would try to eat fish and eggs at least twice a week (and a Vit D fortified milk).
And lastly, when we went to Central Market this morning for groceries, all the pumpkins were out on display...
Aren't they great?
