Winding down our stay

Yesterday it rained off and on all day!  Not very good for getting things done.

We did visit with Jim's doctor to 'complain' about his leg and other medical things.  He's doing as well as he should be but he needs to take the diuretic more often to help with the swelling in his leg.

Today was beautiful!  When Jim got up he said 'I feel great'!  First time since his surgery.  Hopefully this will continue because we all miss our Jim.

Jim worked on some chores outside while I did some inside.  Then we drove into Fair Haven for propane and a filter for the truck.  Also bought a power strip for our heated mattress pad.  There's only one receptacle by the bed and with the air mattress already using one we need at least one more for the dual controls.  Tomorrow we'll get everything on the bed and hooked up because tomorrow night it's supposed to dip into the 30's again.

After lunch we both had a wee nap and then we went for a walk.  Not sure how far we went, perhaps a mile or so.

Dinner was grilled pork chops, mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy supplied by Anne.  I brought over peas, salad and pickled beets.  Way to much food but it sure was good!
