My arm feels much better, today. Almost back to normal. But I still rested and took it easy, today. I had been up until 4:30 a.m., so I couldn't wake up when my alarm went off at 9:30 a.m. and slept till 10:30 a.m., instead. It didn't matter, though, because I have the day off from work (due to Cesar Chavez Day; daughter's work place will observe it on Friday).
I spent a quiet morning. Then, in the afternoon, I called my next-door neighbor and took her several pieces of the cake I baked last night. She invited me in to have a cup of coffee and we sat and visited for about half an hour over a cup of coffee. I was happy to see that she had the sunflower wreath I had given her last year for her birthday, on her front door. When I was leaving, she said she really enjoyed the visit and told me we needed to do it more often. Later in the evening, she called me again, to say she enjoyed the cake and the visit. I shall try to visit her, again, next week.
It was a sunny but windy day, today. Some oranges had fallen from the tree, so I picked them up and picked a few more off the tree, as well. Then, I picked a few African daisies and some grass seeds from the garden to bring in (#10 on my spring joy list).
I had a tuna salad sandwich for lunch and some crackers with peanut butter in the evening. Dinner was some of the frozen honey glazed chicken wings I had bought, corn, and a salad, followed by an apple and a slice of cake even though it still tasted bitter.
I had wanted to water the garden today, but it was too windy to do so. I did do the dishes and cleaned the litter box and took the trash cans to the curb. I also renewed my library book, on line, and put a hold request on another book (I'm #19 on the waiting list, but there are several copies available).
