I could show a picture but it would be unsettling. Sunday morning I woke to find my right side of my face red and swollen around my eye. It was painful. When I woke on Monday it was worse. The internist said it was not typical shingles but its location and the fact that only one side of my face was affected led him to consider shingles. I then went to the eye doctor who felt the same way and gave me an antibiotic to put on my eyelids to prevent a secondary infection. I was given the medication Valtrex which fights the shingle virus but wont hurt me if they are wrong. This morning the rash has spread to the other side of my face, although not as bad as the right, and down both sides of my neck. I also have a small rash on my forearms. Last week I did use an Avon night cream that I have used several times before, but not in a long time. I threw the rest of it out. Hubby is sure I brushed against something at the farm where I was wearing a short sleeve shirt and jeans.

On Fridays I clean house. With Hubby and I it really is a light housekeeping job. I Clorox wipe the kitchen counters and sweep the dog hair up throughout the house. I water the plants and dust. Not much to do. Mindy knows to get out of my way. This afternoon I will have lunch with my friend, Carole, at a Mexican restaurant. Should be a nice day.

I am looking for a new book to read. I like almost anything except politics and gruesome murder mysteries. I like biographies and historical event books. I finished "The Boys and the Boat." It was really good. I usually read at night in bed so I don't finish books quickly so there is no such thing as a one day read for me. I do like fiction too, but Janet Evanovich is a little cloying.

Yesterday Hubby and I spent the day in Ohio with Mary and Sofie. Mary is doing much better and seemed to be feeling good and looking good. She is starting her third week of radiation. Sofie was delightful. We went out to lunch at the Lonestar and she really enjoyed the book of puzzles they give to child customers.
Sofie also drew a picture of Mindy for me.

It is time to get back to blogging. The family is fine. Mom is doing OK as she approaches 99 years. She has some nasty aches and pains but mostly she is doing great. Mary is in radiation and is on a good path to defeating cancer. Other than breaking a toe, I am doing fine too. We went to the Romeo Peach Festival on Monday with Mindy. It was a great parade and we came back with a peach pie.
