Hi everyone! It's Saturday and I should be at the pottery studio. However, I awoke this morning a bit dizzy and headachy... so I plan to go in later this afternoon. We need to bring the cats for their annual vacs around noon, so hopefully I will feel up to going in to the studio later.
Took my blood pressure to see if maybe that had anything to do with how I felt. It was low... but low normal (124/59). I also took a Tylenol x-strength. Feeling a little better, but not quite up to par.
Getting older definitely brings on strange ailments... more inconvenient than serious. I wake up with backache and joints aching on occasion, and have a chronic cough (for the last 19 years since breast cancer radiation) that seems to be getting a bit worse (I cough a lot in the morning and right after eating or drinking). But nothing I haven't been able to handle.
We've had a lot of rain and severe weather recently... but this weekend looks like it might be sunny. I hope so. DH and I took our youngest grand daughter to the park last Sunday. It was muddy from all the rain, but we had a nice walk and she got to play on the playground for a bit.

Now it's Sunday morning and I'm in the process of making some home-made nutty granola for our daughter who just had a birthday last week. Sending two of her favorites, granola and coffee shortbread cookies to have with her coffee. Usually these don't make it home from her work as she tends to share with office mates.
And yes, I do feel better today. Don't know what it was yesterday, but whatever it was hung around the whole day... I'm attributing it to the strange happenings of 'age'. But I never did make it to the pottery studio yesterday - only one session left this spring season anyway and summer sessions start in June.
Oh... wanted to mention this. My daughter introduced me to 'pop sockets'? I didn't know what this was... but now have one on my iPhone and bought one for my friend's. It's pretty convenient - not only for holding your phone in your hand, but also for mounting it and easily seeing the screen from any angle. I have it sitting here beside the computer now. If you don't know what they are... just google it. They run from $4.99 - $9.99. (And it allows your phone to lie flat or be mounted up as needed)
Now... back to my granola. Have a great Sunday and thanks for dropping by!
