Poutines With Ted

Riverton, Utah           High 59 Low 36

It was a lot warmer (for here) that yesterday and last night. At least all the snow is gone. Yea!

I had my doctor's appointment early this morning and found out with the exception of the cholesterol every thing else looked OK. about 2 months ago my leg hurt so much that I could hardly walk and had read previously that statins for cholesterol could cause leg pain so I quit taking the pills for about a week and the pain went away. So I thought to make sure I would take 1/2 of the prescribed amount and it only took 4 days before my legs started hurting again, so I quit taking any of them. I told the doctor all of this and he said that I did exactly what he would have told me to do, but my cholesterol is back up so he prescribed a different medication and said to try it. It is also a much lower dosage.

We had some business in Salt Lake today and we had found out that my son Ted and Jen would be at the Gateway mall during lunch so we decided to finally catch up with them and have some poutines for lunch. The orders were huge and oh so tasty. Cindy and I both left feeling plenty full. They promised to come and see us this week end and bring my little grand son.
Cindy and Ted.

The orders are huge. Hard to tell from the picture.

Some wild painting.

Lots of business.
When we finally got finished with the stuff in Salt Lake and got home I finished another quilt that I had started yesterday. I still have lots of quilts to do.

Chris and I then went to get a china hutch for Tammy from Linda that had belonged to her grand parents but she didn't want any more. Tammy wanted it to help remind her of her great grand mother.There was a lot of traffic both ways driving to Orem. I'm glad there isn't near as much traffic in Yuma in the Winter. Our trip to Salt Lake City was in the middle of the day, so the traffic wasn't near so bad.

Tomorrow Penny gets her heart worm check and shot. I know she won't be happy about going to the vet, but it is necessary.

We also get our taxes tomorrow. I hope we don't owe too much.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Glad you stopped taking the Statins.

  2. It's been a long time since I had a good feed of Poutine, oh so tasty.

  3. Not a poutine fan - it's that icky cheese thing for me. It took a few tries for them to find the right cholesterol drug for Jim. Sure hoping this new one doesn't cause you any problems.

  4. Interesting to hear about the statins, since I've taken them for 3 months now. No problems so far, at least not that I know of, but I did cut my dosage in half. We'll see how it goes. I've never had poutine .. looks WONDERFUL!!!

  5. I had the same experience with the statins. Got to where I couldn't hardly walk. I quit them and started watching the diet a little and the cholestoral is staying normal.
