I’ve been getting flu vaccines for 20+ years and have never had any side effects other than a sore arm. The first shingles vaccine which I received in about 2011 didn’t bother me at all except for the sore arm. This Shingrix vaccine was another whole ball of wax!! My arm is still sore three days later. Wednesday afternoon/evening I felt awful–achy as if I had the flu and those symptoms continued into Thursday morning. By afternoon on Thursday I was fine. I will endure those side effects gladly rather than have shingles! My mom is miserable at times and we have a lady here in our community who is struggling with shingles on her face.
Thursday I spent the morning in bed, the Cowboy worked on various motorhome projects. Friday we went to town to get antifreeze for the AquaHot system and to see Nat–we had a very nice visit with him. He has good days and bad days mentally–Friday was a good day. Paul, our UPS man brought the new to us inverter. The Cowboy loves a bargain and while shopping Amazon for a new inverter, he stumbled across a “used, but new” Xantrex Pure Sine wave inverter/converter. The inverter was new, never been used in its original packaging but had been dropped. It was deeply discounted and could be returned for a full refund if it didn’t work.
The Cowboy connected the inverter to our system this morning and it worked–hurrah!!! He has to build a bracket for it as it’s much larger than the fried inverter he removed from the motorhome.
Saturday I gave the Emmi girl a much needed haircut–might have gotten it a little too short for our cooler weather but it will grow. I spent the rest of the day cleaning in the motorhome–I think I might be about half finished???
Our fall weather has been perfect and the leaf colors are outstanding–we took a drive up Elk Creek tonight to look at the fall leaves and see if we could spot any critters. No animals except deer and turkeys but we enjoyed just seeing all the golds and reds.
This is the same mountain as in the first photo which was taken from our hay fields. Driving up Elk Creek you are up close and personal to Boone Mountain.
