Wow, it snowed off and on all day today! For a while it was a little mini-blizzard, though nothing accumulated. I was going to leave today and go to the free campground in Clints Well but there’s a mountain pass between here and there and I was afraid it would be snowy or slick. Clints Well is supposed to get an inch of snow tonight; I thought that might be fun but I don’t want to have to drive in it. It’s quite cold still in CW….tonight’s low there is supposed to be 23, as opposed to 33 here near Payson. And it’s only 35 miles away!
What a difference a day makes! Yesterday was warm and sunny and still 61 degrees at 11 p.m. so I didn’t even use the heat. Today it’s 46 now at 5:30 p.m. and I already have the heater on.
Last week my friend Donna Morey from Cottonwood came to visit in her big Chalet camper. It’s like mine only much much bigger…..15′ box and mine is only 9′. Hers even has a bathroom! She walked down to the East Verde River and took these photos. Looks pretty down there! It’s a bit too far for me to walk right now.
For the past week I’ve been in Heartburn Hell….I’m trying to kick the Prilosec habit. I’ve been taking it for at least 8 years and it comes with all kinds of possible ugly side effects like increased risk of C. Diff, increased risk of brittle bones, depletion of Vit. B and Magnesium, possible links to Alzheimers, and a 20-50% increased risk of chronic kidney disease….well the list goes on and on. So I’m taking some herbal gut soothers, big doses of probiotics, Famotidine, Rolaids and dill pickle juice. (Did you know, dill pickle juice will stop heartburn in seconds!) Some days are good, some days are bad. I’m still learning what I can and can’t eat. It’s real easy for me to remember what foods are bad for acid indigestion though…..it’s everything I like!! Hmm. Have had to cut way back on chocolate but I still cling to having my one cup of coffee in the morning.
Thanks everyone for using my Amazon Associates link to get to Amazon! I had a pretty good month; $160! That extra income sure makes a difference. The link it at the top right of the page (in little blue letters) and here: https://www.amazon.com/?tag=litbitliv01-20
