I woke up this morning with a terrible cluster headache on the left side of my head. It was so painful I could barely move it. I used to experience severe headaches back in my working days but they ceased when I retired. It is very rare whenever I get one now.
I take a lot of medication so did not want to take any pain killers or even aspirins. Took my blood pressure to make sure it was not elevated and it wasn't so took two of my BP meds that I normally take in the morning.
I wondered if my pain was because I have been washing my hair at least twice daily as I come in sweating profusely from working in the yard. By noon I had to take two aspirins and while it helped some I still have pain in my neck like arthritic pain. Last night I fell asleep in the recliner with the cool A/C blowing on my face, which might have also had something to do with it.
I had to drive into town to run a couple of errands this afternoon. I am so glad that I filled up a week or so back because prices have risen by .15 cents a gallon.
Stopped at Dollar Tree to pick up a couple of canned goods and noticed that they now sell ice. That is good to know in case I ever make it back to my beloved Terlingua as ice after Del Rio goes up exponentially in price. A seven-pound bag for $1.00 is a very good price.
I have forgotten to mention that the McDonald's at Walmart closed shop in March but I do not know if it was March of 2020 or 2021. There are two other McDonald's and while you can go through the drive-thru or go in to order they do not allow you to eat inside. I had stopped there last month for a soft cone but when I found out I would have to eat it in my car I passed.
This afternoon I splurged and bought my sugar-free ice cream now that I finally made some room in the freezer. I also bought some avocados, it has been a long time since I have eaten one.
When I came out of Walmart the sky opened up and I got drenched the last thing I wanted was to get my head wet so I just threw everything into the front and back seat without putting them in the coolers I had brought with me.
This evening I decided to do an Aunty Acid as well as jokes for my married lady readers...enjoy!
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
