Another working morning, thank goodness. This afternoon’s schedule includes a visit to the doctor for a prescription renewal and a wee bit of shopping; driving an hour there and an hour back at highways speeds.
This morning I awoke to the roar of high winds, then it started to snow. The mercury is dropping and will bottom out at -21 tonight, or so they say. I believe it. Then it heads back up to above freezing by Friday. March is definitely coming in like a lion, quite an indecisive lion.
The visit to the doctor proceeded as expected, a few blood tests and good news all round. I’ve managed to reduce the dosage of both my medications and to maintain the level of benefit from them, not bad at all. My goal is to eventually eliminate the medications and maintain the level of benefit; a worthy goal, we shall see.
It is cold out there tonight. Attila burned a fire in the little wood stove downstairs to keep the pipes from freezing tonight. This is one of those nights when warm in our bed, we will sleep deeply and sweetly.
A recent musical discovery on my part, I didn’t know what I was missing,
