The above picture has absolutely nothing to do with my post today but I felt I needed a photo of some sort so there you are. I haven't been feeling much like posting lately because the headache I mentioned in a post Dec. 20th, and that I thought was on the way out, came back with a vengeance. So much so that I forced myself to go see a doctor ( O how I dislike going to the doctor!) who could only prescribe pain meds ( which don't do much) but on the recommendation of a pharmacist I am also taking a muscle relaxant which seems to be helping me. I'm not looking for sympathy here but only telling you what's happening in my life. I have never been prone to headaches and feel quite mortified to be plagued with this one.
Anyway, while waiting for my prescription in Walmart I filled my cart with good deals. I think I now have enough laundry detergent, bleach, paper towels, toilet tissue and Kleenex to get me through most of 2016. How's that for being prepared?
On the subject of being prepared, we are again being urged to be ready for "the big one" after a 4.8 magnitude earthquake rocked us out of our sleep just before midnight. Actually, I had not yet fallen asleep and felt the first, small shake, then a few seconds later the whole room shook and I scrambled to the foot of the bed because there is a very heavy antique mirror which hangs directly over my head and I am afraid that if it came down it would not be a good thing. Obviously I am not so afraid that I move it, besides DH says he fastened it well and who am I to argue with that? ( What I did do was move the bed about 10" away from the wall in the hope that IF the mirror came down it would slip straight down and miss my head).
So in an effort to not go crazy with boredom ( No way can I read) I have slowly begun tidying up Christmas things. This morning the grands helped pack away the various nativity sets. I have some empty boxes at the ready and as I go I'm deciding what I no longer want to keep ( in the way of Christmas stuff). One of the larger sets has gone into the box and also a very small set that I don't remember ever using. I'm quite sure a lot more will end up being donated.
So, dear friends, that's what has been happening here. I walked this morning ( it had been a while) and the cold, clear air was so refreshing. I hope to get back on track with walking now.
If you've stayed to read this lengthy post you deserve a cup of tea and one of the many leftover Christmas cookies that are stashed in my freezer. ( As usual I baked way too many!).
Thank you for coming by. I do appreciate each one of you ( even those that I know read but don't comment. Not naming any names).
