Fog ~ Meds ~ Naps ~ Chocolate

Good 29┬║ 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!
