Velcade and Trader Joe’s

IMG_0203.JPGOff to Sacramento this morning in the old van. She did great and traffic was flowing. they are very quick in there and I got right in. I stopped at the nurses station to tell her about my eye issue. Over the last month, my eyes have really been dry and somewhat itchy. Monday my left eye was really bothering so I called my eye doctor and got in yesterday. He said its styes probably caused by my lower immune system. He put me on a very short course of antibiotics. Both eyes are affected. My daughter thinks( and she’s usually right), that since my eyes are so dry they are not producing tears and therefore, allowing bacteria or particles into my eyes, at least around my eyelid. So I’m going to get some different eyedrops tomorrow that is to help with that. I guess we will see (no pun really) how that works. At least, I know what is going on.

We leave for Santa Barbara on Sunday so I hope it’s better. The weather doesn’t look fabulous but ok. I was hoping for 70 degrees or so but it looks like more in the 60’s. Last time it was lots of fun although this time we don’t need to go see the mission etc. But the beach trail is wonderful and so is the main street and I hope we can hit the farmers market, which is incredible. It’s a long drive from us, @ 7 hours so….

It’s dex afternoon and I’m going to cook something easy for dinner. Chicken with a Trader joes curry sauce and rice.  After my shot, I drove up to Trader Joes which is right on the way home. I loaded up with tons of food and snacks too. Another blogger,, recommended the organic riced cauliflower so I bought a bag. Not too sure what I’ll do with it but I think she used it for rice.

Above picture, with coffee!!!

Then, I’ve been wanting a Chemex coffee maker to make coffee after the morning pot is gone. They run around 50.00 or so for the 8 cup. Yesterday, I had seen World market had all their coffee makers at 30% off. So a great deal. So I went there after Trader Joes. The 8 cup was priced at $43.00 then with the 30% off it was like $23, then I had printed a coupon for 15% off the total purchase. I didn’t think it would go as the it was already on sale. But it did. Plus I got the special filters and a white cream pitcher. The total came to just over $30.  That’s a great deal…..

Tomorrow I may drive up to Truckee with my daughter, as she has her staff meeting. But it depends how I feel. I ‘d like to see the snow.
