It has been a cold windy day with some snow, but not enough to cum late. You didn't want to be outside anymore then you had to that is for sure. I decided it was time to break out the long johns or cuddles as some would call them and my lined snow boots. I was trying to scare the snow away. I am not really ready for the cold.
It was hard to go back to work after having four days off. On Saturday we went to Joanne's because they had a big sale, then went to a quilt shop in Kearney, Missouri where they carry the needles that I like to embroidery with. I use them until they start to curve and then they break. Isn't that the way it is when you get them just to the point that you like them? It was a nice day for a drive with the sun shining and in the 50's.
My son wanted to watch TV so I got the computer. Normally he is on it until around 9 or 10 . Then I don't get to spend that much time on it. I decided I was going to do some reading tonight for a change of scenery instead of the normal.
I have to talk to the doctor's office tomorrow about the blood pressure medicine that the insurance company wanted me to take. I have been having a runny nose, cough, and my back has been bothering me more then it normally does. I thought at first I had a cold, but after doing some more reading about Micardis I wonder if it is do to the medicine The allergy medicine has not stopped the nose from running nor has the cough gone away which makes me wonder.
My son is having fun with the telemarketers. He answered the phone is Japanese, and the questions in other foreign languages. They hung up on him. He spent several years overseas when he was in Navy. I always said that I just wanted a tiny little pinch of all of the countries that he has seen.
I have started making a Christmas list for my shopping and I usually do a Christmas letter for our family and friends. I haven't started that project yet.
Have a great week and stay warm.
