I didn't have to go anywhere this morning, so I was able to sleep in a bit. As a result, I didn't need to take a nap in the afternoon, even though I lay down to see if I could sleep.
I spent most of the day working on office work. I received another work assignment rather late last night (just before 10:00 p.m.), which I acknowledged receiving around 10:20 p.m. One of the benefits of working from home is there is no set start time. One of the downsides of working from home is there is no set end time!
After I finished today's office work, I attended to a stack of my own papers that had piled up. It was mostly filing, but I tried to toss as much of it as I could. I think I was able to toss about half of it. I now have one more stack of papers to sort through and file!
In the evening, I put water to the back garden and picked another handful of ripe cherry guavas to eat. I also took a short walk around the block.
Breakfast was a banana and a piece of toast with cheese. Lunch was rice with chicken, bell peppers, onions and carrots - it was some of what my neighbor had brought me which I had frozen. I also ate a mandarin orange for dessert. I wasn't hungry for dinner, so I had a nutritional drink, instead.
One of the things I was told to avoid due to chemo treatments was going out in public. Because the chemo compromised my immune system and made me vulnerable to germs. As a result, I have not gone grocery shopping. My daughter had been doing my shopping for me, but, she couldn't shop for fresh produce the last time she was home because she herself got sick. Then, she didn't come home last weekend and she won't be coming home this weekend, either. I've been managing with whatever I had in the fridge and freezer, but I am coming to the end of my loaf of bread and it would be nice to have more fruits and vegetables. I do have some frozen bread dough in the freezer and I thought of making a loaf of bread using that, or making some bread from scratch. But, instead, today, I called one of my cousins and asked her to pick up a loaf of bread for me when she goes grocery shopping next. Then, I called a friend of mine and asked her to pick up some bananas and some vegetables for me, when she goes grocery shopping this weekend. I have my reasons for asking different people to pick up different things, but mostly, it's so that I don't impose on any one person, in terms of time and effort.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to work from home
- Getting through another pile of accumulated paperwork
- Being able to call on family and friends for favors such as going grocery shopping for me
- More fruit from the garden
- Video chatting with daughter
How was your day?
