The power of persuasion

The other day, the top of one of my feet itched like crazy when I got home from my walk. The next day it was worse. I blamed it on the worn out shoes. Then I talked to my brother. He said he had taken Losartin - the same Losartin I take - and it caused him to itch all over. He stopped taking it and the itching was gone in 3 days. Today, after my walk, the tops of both my feet itched so badly I had to put cold compresses on them.

Is it Losartin? Or my imagination? Probably the latter but we're going to test. I take it for hypertension. So I ordered up a blood pressure monitor. I'm going to monitor my blood pressure for a week. Then stop the Losatin for a week and compare. Yeah, I could just ask my doctor to switch me to a non-itcher but what's the fun in that???

Then I was reading my LJ Friends list and somedayseattle mentions spiral bound church cookbooks. OMG These were such a thing - all over the South and, also the Midwest. Maybe they still are but not in Seattle. And they were always so good.

So, off to eBay. Lots of options. I finally decided on a $10 set of three from Indiana. This is cracking me up since I really do not like to cook and have a whole internet of recipes if that changes.

Today's other thrills will include taking a load of garbage and recycling down to the dumpster. Oh and finishing the reading of the morning paper - tree version. I'm enjoying dragging it out.

I made myself a proper 2 eggs/potatoes/toast/and bacon breakfast this morning so there's that to clean up.

Thrills and chills around here as usual.

Biggie's gathering strength.
