I couldn't fall asleep until after 1:30 a.m., last night, so it was hard to wake up at 7:00 a.m., this morning. The fact that the house was chilly didn't help (my non-digital thermostat is not working properly - the heater doesn't always come back on, automatically; I have to toggle it, manually, to get it to come back on). I wanted to stay in my warm bed, under the covers, and sleep longer. But, eventually, I got up, fed the cat, did my morning ablutions, checked and logged my blood sugar level and blood pressure. The sugar level was well within the target range, but my blood pressure was low. I felt fine, however.
I called my supervisor to let her know I was coming in to the office, today, but I'll be a little late. My normal start time is 8:00 a.m. and I am still trying to work my way up to that! My supervisor is at the office at the crack of dawn! She had already sent me an email from the office at 6:30 a.m., about a project, asking me to work on it, today! She said she was going to be out of the office most of the day, today, but I was to come in at whatever time I wanted to, it was OK. She said it was OK if I wanted to work from home, too, but I thought I should go in.
I promise I am not going to take pictures of my outfits to the office, every day! But I am still trying to figure out what is still wearable in my closet, so, I took a picture of today's outfit, too. It's the same pair of pants I wore last week, worn with a sweater I had knitted back in the 1980s. I had actually knitted it for my mother (I made a peach colored one in the same pattern for myself). I wore a short sleeved blouse, under the sweater, for layering:
|Outfit No. 2|
I wore it with a jacket from another suit:
The jacket was a little big and I thought I looked a bit like a Charlie Chaplin character, but I kept the jacket on all day because I felt too cold to take it off.
The work day went well. I attended the monthly staff meeting, worked on the project my supervisor wanted me to work on, was welcomed back to the office by our Deputy Director who told me they needed me there, etc.
After I came home, I had a cup of tea and relaxed. Called one of my cousins who had some surgery done recently; she's recovering well. Made and ate some spaghetti for dinner; leftovers will be packed for my lunch for tomorrow. I forgot to check with the pharmacy if they had my new medication ready for pick up - will call them tomorrow.
Today, I was grateful for:
- Being able to go into the office on my schedule
- A safe commute to the office and back
- Being told, by the Deputy Director, that I was a "valuable resource" (her words, not mine)
- More rain for the garden
- Video chatting with my daughter
I didn't finish my to do list, so I will just carry it forward to tomorrow.
How was your Wednesday? What have you planned for tomorrow?
