Rain & Hail ~ Dizzy Blonde ~ Adelle ~ Pecan Cake & Pie

Good 38º morning. The predicted rain yesterday manifested itself in a couple of ways. First as I left for my doc appointment it was just misty. Got some winds. Then it rained on and off... then hail. Then sun. Then rain. Then hail. Then sun..... all day. Weird. 
The day yesterday was spent running from pillar to post. I had a yearly (ick) doc appointment at 9am. Been having dizziness (a dizzy blonde, ohhhh nooooo!) and doc thinks it could be inner ear, since I have tinnitus.   He's put me on a diuretic to see if the fluid in the inner ear dissipates. And, he's setting up an appointment with an ENT (Ear Nose Throat) doc. I got a pneumonia shot and he has me signed up for a shingles shot. If you had chicken pox you are susceptible to shingles. I had chicken pox horrible! And my mom had shingles once, in her right arm. Best to be safe then sorry. Doc said when the shots became available he and his wife were first in line.
I stopped at the Rogue Creamery in Central Point on the way home...
It was built in 1935. They make such wonderful Blue Cheese! Really, all their cheese is wonderful! I picked up some cheese curds (jalapeño, pesto, and garlic), my favorite pasta Anellini, some sharp cheddar bread, fresh gnocchi, and olive oil infused with lemon (OHHHHH sooooo good!).  

Looked like this on at 1pm
Then on my second trip into Medford I took Maggie.
This was for a follow up mammo. Something seen in the first one, so took a second.
We did the pharmacy stop and grocery stop on the way home. Stopped and chatted with Dave and PJ, came home and made a fire. It got so windy, but never did rain even with the threatening clouds moving in. Patty said at the coast they got 1½" of rain. Always amazes me, you'd think the whole coastline would just slide into the ocean!
I am so sorry, my cute friend Adelle
(and her cute hubby, Tom) had a birthday yesterday and I did
not put it on my blog.... but we did chat on the phone and I sang Happy Birthday to her (yikes, and I can't carry a tune!) She's a friend from our days at Wilson High.
