It was another beautiful day for us, sunny and yet cool. I hate to push summer out, but it’s really starting to feel like fall. So much so that I spent most of the afternoon taking down summer decor and adding fall touches. I had to sneak in a touch of Halloween to our fireplace. That tombstone I got yesterday was too cute to put away.
I went the day without my prescription anti-inflammatory. I hate taking medicine longer than necessary and this one required that I not take any antacids within 2 hours. Since chemo, I’ve had trouble with my stomach and lately it’s gotten troublesome again, so I opted for antacids today instead. The upside is that while I’ve been sore today, I haven’t felt as swollen. That’s a good sign, I think. I’m on the mend and probably don’t need my prescription anymore. I’m thankful for that.
I’m also thankful for a quick visit with my friend, Ann. Sadly, I didn’t get the yummy cookies I made yesterday into an air tight container and they got too soft from the humidity. They were perfectly crisp last night, but this morning they were soft and crumbly. Ann gets a lot of wildlife at her place, so I thought the squirrels might like a cookie or two. It was a good opportunity to sit on the deck and have a glass of wine (alcohol free for me).
