|Daughter's Christmas Decorations|
It rained all night, last night, and it was still drizzling when I drove to the clinic for my hydration. The freeway was bumper to bumper and there were many accidents. At least one other freeway was completely closed due to an accident and another had two lanes closed. I left 15 minutes early and was still 5 minutes late to my appointment. My oncologist was running late due to traffic, too, but I was seen by the nurse practitioner, so there wasn't any delay. Today's hydration session took a long time, however, as they gave me a big bag of saline solution! But I don't need to go for additional hydration. My next appointment with the oncologist is in one month's time. I worked on another Christmas gift while I was having my hydration.
It stopped raining, mid-morning, and by the time I left the clinic, the sun was shining. Today's afternoon high was 63F. My gardener friend was in a T-shirt; I was bundled up in a sweater, coat, and a scarf! He brought in the Christmas tree and set it up in the family room for me. I also had him bring in the bin with the tree ornaments, the bin with the winter village, and the wreaths. But I haven't started decorating yet.
I felt tired after my hydration session. So, I spent a quiet afternoon and evening, doing office work, changing my bed sheets (put on the flannel ones!) and doing a load of laundry. I will clean the litter box before I go to sleep, but everything else on my To Do List will be put off till tomorrow!

The photo above and the ones below are of my daughter's holiday decor. She bought the wreath base, ornaments, and picture frame (from the dollar stores).
She found the reindeer template on-line, she said.
|Reindeer Close Up|
This is the girl who once asked Santa for a bell from his reindeer as proof that they could fly and took him on his rounds. Santa brought her a whole strand of bells! I usually hang it on the front door knob during the season and it jingles every time the door is opened.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The rain we have received
- A safe drive to the clinic and back
- A good hydration session
- My gardener friend helping me with setting up the Christmas tree
- Flannel bed sheets!
How was your Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
