"A grandma is just an antique little girl"...unknown

It's a busy day. Mike has gone on an outing with one of the neighbors. I stayed home because we are expecting the cable company to show up and hook up a second television so I am hanging around for that and getting the housework and laundry done.
I the mean time, the our landlord's landscape company has shown up to do some work--reworking the garden island in front, expanding the patio in the back, building a walkway along the side of the house, and putting in several new plantings. Big job, but it will spiff things up considerably.
I spied this in a downtown shop window and just had to go in and purchase it--another gadget to help in my quest for better hydration. Speaking of which, some one recently mentioned coconut water as a good source of potassium and then I read an article about it in the Huffington Post. A bottle costs about $2.50 in the health food stores. I picked some up in the Latin section of the grocery for 99 cents a can. For that, I will give it a try. If nothing else, I can always throw it into a fruit smoothie. I do use quite a bit of coconut milk in cooking so I should check on the potassium level of that.

I just read an article about nutrition changes to make to avoid having more medication for high blood pressure...and it was all stuff that I do so I guess the medication changes will be inevitable when I get back to my doctor for the next check.
