I am still feeling under the weather, today. Scratchy throat and inflamed sinuses, I think, but no fever. I didn't do anything much, today. I had emailed my supervisor before I went to sleep, last night, explaining I wasn't feeling well and wasn't planning to come into the office, today. So, I knew I didn't have to wake up early and call in. However, I did wake up a couple of times, early in the morning,; but, each time, I went back to sleep and slept in until past 11:00 a.m. Once I was up, however, I contacted my supervisor, because she had sent me a very sweet email in response to mine. I have arranged with her to work from home this entire week.
Today, I stayed home, gargled with warm salt water, kept the heater on all day, and took an afternoon nap. It rained again, in the morning and in the evening. In between, in the afternoon, I brought in the trash can and collected my mail. I received the reminder for jury duty, which I had postponed until June. I think a reminder in February for a June service date is a bit too early, but I've kept the document in a fairly central spot and I marked it on my calendar, too.
I didn't do any housework, today, other than putting away the laundry and doing the dishes (will do the litter box before I go to bed). So, just a very quiet, restful day.
I cooked some rice and had that with the last of the chicken curry for lunch. I thawed and reheated the last packet of beef pot roast I had in the freezer for my dinner, with a slice of bread and butter, and the rest of the blackberries for dessert. There's enough pot roast leftover for tomorrow's lunch or dinner, and leftover rice, too. Since I didn't go grocery shopping this past weekend, I am eating from the fridge, freezer, and pantry. I will need to go grocery shopping later this week, however, for fresh produce!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to take the day off from work today
- Being able to arrange to work from home the rest of the week
- Being able to sleep in, in the morning
- An afternoon nap
- More rain for the garden!
I'm really not making any plans for tomorrow, except doing office work. Everything else will depend on how well I feel and can wait for another day or two without any problems.
How was your Tuesday? What are your plans for Wednesday?
