Once again, I couldn't fall asleep at a decent hour, last night. It was 4:45 a.m. when I last looked at the clock before I fell asleep, this morning! Not a problem, except, I had to get up at 8:00 a.m. to take my first antibiotic dose for the day (I have to take them three times a day for seven days). Again, no problem, I thought; I can take the dose and go back to sleep. Except, I had left the medication in the car, overnight! I had put it in the glove compartment, when I went to do the grocery shopping and forgotten to take it out! So, first, I had to go to the garage and get the medication. Then, I read the medication instructions and they said not to lie down for at least 10 minutes after taking the medication! So, I didn't go back to sleep. But I felt less than energetic all morning due to insufficient sleep!
In the afternoon, however, I went to the home improvement/DIY store and plant nursery. I bought a roll of wire mesh, to put around the vegetable bed. I measured the vegetable bed before I went and it is a bit bigger than I had thought - 5 1/2 feet long by 4 1/2 feet wide! I purchased a 2 x 25 foot long roll of chicken wire for $11.98 (plus tax). They sold the stakes, too, ($2.48 each), but I didn't buy them. I have some leftover pieces of wood flooring in the garage - I think I will use them, instead. I also bought two grape vines - a red and a green - both seedless. I will have to figure out a trellis or something for them; one of my neighbors has a very impressive metal structure for his grape vines; a friend's husband built a very pretty arbor with white painted wood for his grape vines. There were many other plants I wanted to buy, but didn't. I don't want to buy a whole bunch of plants and be unable to care for them. Especially since they are not exactly inexpensive!
Then, I went to the library to return one book and checked out another. I still haven't finished reading the other two books I had borrowed earlier, but I'll be able to renew them, if I need to.
I had a late lunch after I came home and then, my earlier lack of sleep caught up with me and I took a nap on the sofa! I slept for about 2 hours and woke up feeling groggy. As a result, I haven't done much of what was on my to do list for today! At least, that's my excuse and I am sticking to it!
Today, I am grateful for:
- No allergic reactions to the antibiotics (so far, knock on wood!)
- New plants for my garden
- The public library
- Daughter didn't see any roaches today!
- An afternoon nap on the sofa
- Tidy the house
- Change bed sheets
- Load of laundry
- Office work - DONE
- Daily tasks (dishes, litter box, etc.) - DONE
- Plant some of the new succulents
- Buy wire mesh
- Fence off the vegetable planting bed
- Library to return book - DONE
I will be working on this to do list tomorrow, as well!
How was your Saturday? What are your plans for tomorrow?
