Good 29º morning. Foggy. First picture was yesterday morning
7-ish and the second this morning 7-ish....
My cold is better. I got to town yesterday and the pharmacist had put aside a decongestant and antihistamine that won't conflict with my regular meds. So far so good. I did take a 2 hour nap in the afternoon and then after I ate dinner I took another hour or so nap. Went to bed and slept well. So, today I have a lot to catch up with.
Couldn't agree more, Maxine!
