I took a giant leap of faith and ordered the new wireless Apple AirPods. I've been eagerly waiting for Apple to release them. I think they will arrive mid February. They are pricey at $159. I am totally sick of earbuds with cords. There's not many styles of those things I can wear but the ones from Apple work great for me. I do think they look a little weird stuck in your ear but that's not of great importance to me.
Daughter gave me some Audible book credits so I'm set for ordering new books. My audible library is quite large so I'm going to spend some time making notes and lists in a regular notebook in hopes it will make my reading/listening selections easier.
I finished knitting a pair of socks during the holidays. Daughter loves all the yarn stores here in Portland so I accompanied her thinking I did not need anything. As usual I came home with threes skeins of sock yarn. I took a knitting break for the summer and have had a hard time getting back in the groove but knitting goes well with audible books.
Bob is having blood pressure problems again. I was able to get in touch with the new cardiologist on Friday before Christmas. He is so nice and I'm so pleased to have him on Bob's medical team. He told me to take his blood pressure in the morning. If the top number is over 100 he is to take his morning meds. He's to skip them if the top number is under 100. Before bedtime we take it again and that tells us if he's to take a particular pill or skip it. We will be seeing him mid January and I will take along a log of his BP readings.
Perhaps I'll have something more exciting for my next post but don't count on it.
