At the suggestion of the nurse practitioner I saw last Monday I bought myself a new gadget. Since she had taken my blood pressure twice while I was there and it was falling in the pre-hypertension range, she suggested I buy either an aneroid monitor or a digital monitor and keep track of my blood pressure. She said to check it a few times a day for a couple weeks.
After looking at the different ones available I chose the digital wrist monitor. For the first couple days it was still reading in the same range but since then has gone down to normal. I also downloaded a blood pressure tracker for my phone. After I take my blood pressure I just put the numbers into the app and then it keeps track of it all for me. That way when I go to the doctor I can show him what it's been. You can also put in additional information like when you took it, were you seated, standing or lying down, what was the weather plus any additional notes you might want to make.
Another purchase was made a month or so ago. I found this scrapbook paper stack. It's chalkboard cardstock
There were two sheets in the stack that looked like this
When I saw this I instantly though of my wood plaques and knew this would make 6 quick and easy plaques. Since there were two sheets it really made 12 quick and easy plaques. I cut the page apart, painted the wood plaques and then glued the chalkboard art to the wood.
Tuesday I'll be back with my June craft report
