Prednisone, For the Last Time

I’ve finished the treatments for week 1 of my last cycle. I got tipped again the first day but it wasn't as dramatic since I knew what to expect and the nurse was a bit more athletic. I am feeling well. I am taking the Procarbazine and Prednisone for the last time. That’s a good thing, especially the Prednisone. I think Eunice will be happy when I am done with it too. I’ve painted the bathroom, cleaned out the glove compartment in the car, fixated on vacuuming the porch, cleaned out a my desk drawer, bought a tandem bicycle, got a new shade for the other bathroom, created a detailed itinerary for a trip to DC, insist on buying “used” bread, started letting Smudge out, cleaned out my cubby, insisted on framing and hanging some art, and have been a general pain in the butt when I get focused on something.

The latest and greatest was reorganizing the spices. Melinda stopped by last night to pick up vegetables from the CSA. She noticed the spices. It’s almost a work of art. We had a spice drawer that has driven me crazy for years. No more. I found magnetic containers that stick to the refrigerator door and have moved all our spices there for easy access. They look good there too. The containers have clear tops so you can see the spices. The prettiest ones are marjoram, mustard, and turmeric. They are all pretty; different shapes, sizes, and colors. The drawer? It now holds oven mitts, hot pads, and a variety of cooking utensils.

Have something you need organized? Only about seven more days of Prednisone left. Call now. Melinda, you should probably lock your door.

Are the spices in alphabetical order???

Yes they are. I'm on Prednisone. I thought about arranging them by the colors of the visible light spectrum but that was too much even for me.
