I pulled an Eddie Bauer catalog out of my mailbox this afternoon, and it's nearly the same as looking at an LLBean catalog. I want some cold weather! I want to buy flannel lined jeans, warm sweaters, down parkas, fleece lined slippers and boots!
Current temps in the 60's and next week to be 50's in Sacramento just chills a person to the bone, whereas the real cold can be dealt with by choice of wardrobe, and you can look pretty darn good at the same time!
I got Christmas shopping done for 5 grandchildren today, with 3 more to go. I also took the parabolic dish heater back to Costco. I loved that thing but I couldn't plug it into an outlet close enough to my recliner to do me any good. I may have to find another little Lasko heater one of these days.
I think I'm going to have a real problem with the antibiotics I'm supposed to take, specifically Levofloxacin. After only one dose I developed on and off pain in an Achilles tendon, shoulder, and a couple of other places. Another dose later I am not sure if I should call the G.I. Clinic. Why do these problems come up on a weekend?
Jeannie & Sarah (Joe's wife) are talking about going up to Apple Hill tomorrow to buy Christmas trees, caramel apples, apple pies, cider, etc., but I'm not sure if I want to traipse around in the cold. I could get out my Eddie Bauer down jacket, but it would be overkill even for the slightly higher elevation at Apple Hill. I'm bored just sitting at home so maybe I'll try walking a little.
RAIN, LOTS OF RAIN!!!
