After my first call to the clinic, I left the house and went to the office. My supervisor was pleased to see me because she had brought me another big bag of aeonium cuttings from her garden! At this rate, I don't know if she has any plants left, but she assures me she does! LOL. Anyway, I was happy to receive the cuttings and accepted them with a grateful heart. I will not say no to free plants! I have been wanting to make some jam to give her as a thank you gift, but I haven't made any, yet. Maybe this weekend.
I went to the pharmacy on my way home from work and picked up my refills. I asked the pharmacist when the new antibiotics might come in and she thought maybe tomorrow. They will text me when it is ready to be picked up.
After I came home, I had a cup of coffee and then, watered the front garden. I meant to water the newly planted calendula (some of them were drooping and wilting!) but ended up watering the whole front yard. Then, I spent some time doing paperwork and looking for my lab work request form! I had put it in a safe spot and forgotten where I had put it! As I told one of my friends, I don't know if there is a method to my madness or if there is a madness to my method! It's one or the other! Had I been unable to find the lab form, I would have called the clinic tomorrow and asked for a new form and picked it up during my lunch break. However, I managed to find the form without too much difficulty. But, I really must sit down and do some filing and organizing, one of these days!
After that, I put away the dried dishes from yesterday and cooked rice and a chicken stir-fry for dinner:

There is enough leftover for tomorrow's lunch and maybe Thursday's lunch, as well.
Later in the evening, I "chatted" on-line with one of my friends. I wanted to ask her if it was OK to polish the mezuzah that is fixed to my front door post. It was left in place by the previous owners of this house and I have kept it and read up on it. Although I am not Jewish, I believe that it is one more layer of protection for this house and those of us who live in it. I believe the case is brass, but, over the years, it has oxidized and turned black. It bothered me that it has been left to tarnish. Since Passover began at sundown, yesterday, I felt it would be a good time to try and clean the mezuzah, a bit. So, today, I polished the mezuzah, very gently, with some brass cleaner. It looks just a little bit better:

I shall continue to clean it, a little at a time. My friend said to be careful not to damage the parchment with the prayer contained inside the case.
One of my cousins called me this evening to invite me to the April rosary gathering. Apparently she is hosting it, later this month. She's Catholic but this is the first time she's hosting the rosary gathering (her mother and her sister have hosted it for many years). Cousin is after recent surgery, herself, so it will be a pot-luck dinner. I asked her what she'd like me to bring and she said to bring a dessert, if I can. That should be easy enough.
Later still, I video chatted with my daughter. She is still trying to fight off a cold and sore throat. I had her check if she had a fever, but she said she didn't.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Dr. prescribed a different antibiotic for me
- More plants from my supervisor
- The mezuzah on my front doorpost and all that it represents
- My cousin calling me to invite me to the monthly prayer gathering
- Friends who care
