Today was overcast and cooler; the rest of the week will be cooler, too, according to the forecast.
I received a call from my friend's niece this morning and later, I spoke with my friend's daughter. Apparently my friend suffered another stroke last night and she is now unable to talk or move. She is still in the Intensive Care Unit, but she is not expected to recover and has already received her last rites.
I really didn't feel like doing much, today. I did office work, but felt unmotivated to do much housework. One of my aunts and a cousin called to ask about my friend and later, I called two other friends to give them the news. Later in the evening, another aunt and cousin called, too.
Today, I found out that my dishwasher is no longer working! I usually wash my dishes by hand because I rarely have enough dishes to make a full load. But once a week or so, I collect all the dishes for a couple of days and do a load in the dishwasher, because I've been told I should run it at least once a week. So, today, I loaded all the dishes and put the detergent in, etc., but I couldn't get it to start! The dial seems to be stuck. Sigh. I washed the dishes by hand, instead. I don't know if I should buy a new dishwasher or go back to not having one.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to talk with my friend's daughter.
- My neighbor bringing in my trash cans for me.
- Phone calls with family and friends.
- A working computer.
- Video chatting with my daughter.
