I had an achy head Sunday morning, but I didn’t think much about it.  Since Sat. was my first day stepping down to 20 mg of Prednisone I just figured that had something to do with it.  By afternoon everything was just too, too.  Too bright, too loud, too smelly.  Then I knew it was the beginnings of a migraine.  Haven’t had one in almost 2 years and figure that the change in Prednisone was the cause.  Finally crawled out of the dark, quiet hole yesterday afternoon. 

Have noticed more of a difference since stepping down to 20mg than I did going down to 40mg.  I feel like a furnace all the time.  Have to have the fan blowing on me constantly.  One good thing is that I think I’m losing some of the steroid puffiness.  That may just be wishful thinking.

Bill and I went to Office Depot, bought a filing cabinet and ordered the desk for my sewing room.  Bought bread & milk to get us through the winter storm that is coming, and then dropped my car off to have electrical worked on.  Figured if the weather is going to be bad enough that I won’t be driving anywhere, the car might as well be in the shop being worked on.

Didn’t get started on the doggie sweater.  Thought I had size 6 straight needles, but I don’t.  Didn’t feel like searching boxes for circulars.  So last night I worked on a chullo (ear flap hat) that I am knitting.  My first fair isle project.  Haven’t gotten to the two color pattern part yet.

It’s raining, and getting colder.  We’re supposed to have wintery mix later today and same tomorrow with high temp in the upper 30’s.  So I am designating tomorrow as the first chili day of the season.
