Warm and breezy today with temperatures in the low 80’s.

post office and the drugstore. I did the bank from the teller window and Doug at the library bough out my book to my car maintaining the 6 ft distance rule,

This afternoon the back was still being cranky but I went out and watered the pots and in ground plants filling the watering can half full. Supposed to rain sometime tomorrow or Friday but things were looking dry. I guess rest is the order for the afternoon.

68 degrees and breezy with blue skies. Another beautiful day. It’s warmed up into the upper 70’s with lot of sunshine.

Did a few things in the kitchen between resting the back to try to keep things tidy as possible. Try to keep Colin entertained. He doesn’t understand why we can’t play. I try to give him plenty of time to sniff around outside and check all his favorite spots.

66 degrees and sunny with a breeze. Partly cloudy and cool today with temps in the upper 60’s.

I had first of the month stuff to do at my this morning. The shots still have not kicked in or doing what ever they are supposed to be doing. I have a system now. Once the pain meds kick in I do a few chores. This morning I washed a load of towels and managed to clean the toilets and sinks.

Then I rest up and do a few more things in the afternoon.

I am reading a Clubbable Woman by Reginald Hill. This is the first book in his Dalziel and Pascoe British series that Bob and I read many years ago, I have some on the bookshelves and can get the others from the library but I decided I wanted to reread the series interspersed with my other series I have going on. They also made a TV show from the series.

68 degrees, sunny, and calm. We had a brief spell of hard rain last night but there was only half an inch in the rain gauge.

A lovely, warm day with temperatures in the mid 70’s.  I managed to get a load of laundry done but that’s about it.

Damp and cloudy this morning. More of the same today. Clouds, periods of rain, temps in the mid 60’s.

I did sleep better last night I guess due to the injections. But, the lower back pain is bad today. It takes several days for the injections to work from deep inside where the issues are. In the meantime treat it with pain meds to stay functional.

Been an interesting day. Joyce picked me up at 7 to head to Winston- I had a 9 appointment with the spine center supposedly for injections. They did not have a doctor on hand to do them. The nurse practitioner called around and found a doctor in Elkin.

Joyce had a doctor appointment in Greensboro. The original plan was for Al to pick me up at the center and take me to their house. Joyce would call on her way back through Winston and we would meet up and she would bring me home. When my appointment went south Al picked me up the center, drove me to Elkin, where I had the shots then drove me home then turned around and went back down the mountain. I left voice mail for Joyce letting her know change of plans.

BTW, I had Donna come by and let Colin out at noon so he would not have a long day.

62 degrees with light rain. Another chilly, rainy day. Not a lot of accumulation of rain just off and on showers.

The library is back open for curb side service. Two of my books came in that I had on reserve just before they shut down. When Tim called I explained the back situation. I drove over and they brought them to the car and took the ones I had to turn in.

The battle of the back continues. Last slept some last night sitting in my chair in the den and the rest in the bed. Today just trying to stay comfortable.

61 degrees, cloudy, and drizzle this morning. Mid 60’s. cloudy, and drizzle today.

I had  to o into town to the drugstore to pick up another prescription to try for the back. Also, got a card from the vet. They are back to doing routine exams but I will have to wait until I get this back mess fixed. You still have to stay in the car and they take your pet in for what’s needed. I had to drive out there this morning to pick up his six month supply of Heartguard which they brought it out to the car.

Otherwise nursing the pain. Not sure the new meds are going to work. I had an okay night last night. Today has been rough.

62 degrees, cloudy, and drizzly. mid 60’s today with clouds and a stray shower. Rain tonight.

I was up most of the night with my back. I had a chiropractor appointment this morning. The back is not getting better so I will discuss next options with my doctor tomorrow via phone chat.

Otherwise, resting and icing the back today.
