Another fairly productive day at the office, today. I gave the thank you card I made, along with a box of Ceylon tea, to my supervisor for all the plants she gave me. She kept saying I didn't have to, but I told her I wanted to.
During my lunch break, I went to the weekly farmers' market and my favorite bakery stall was there, this week, and I was able to buy a loaf of the crusty French bread that I like. I also tried the Hawaiian barbecued chicken stall for the first time. It was good, but not something I'd want to buy all the time. I wasn't planning to buy lunch, but the peanut butter sandwich I had brought for lunch didn't really appeal (I had one yesterday, too, and found it OK; two days in a row was too much, I guess.)
It's been another very windy day, which might explain the sinus pressure headache I had. I didn't feel like stopping at the garden center to buy the tomato cages, after work. I just came home directly, took a Tylenol, and rested for a bit. But I couldn't fall asleep, so eventually, I got up and put in a load of laundry to wash. That always makes me feel I was productive! It is hanging up, now, to dry inside the house. One of my friends called to ask how daughter and I were and we chatted for a bit.
Daughter's office closed early, today, and she and her colleagues were asked to work from home or a different, off-site location, in order to avoid the protests that were planned in Berkeley, later in the evening, and any potential violence that might have resulted. I am glad she was able to go home a couple of hours early.
I have taken tomorrow and Monday as vacation days, so I will have a nice long weekend ahead of me! I am hoping I will be able to both rest and get a few things done, as well! It's going to be another hot weekend with temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s, according to the weather forecast! So, I am planning to be productive in the mornings when it is cooler and relax in the afternoons when it will be hot.
Today, I was grateful for:
- Daughter was able to go home early and avoid the protests taking place this evening.
- Being able to treat myself to lunch out
- Being able to buy my favorite bread which I haven't had in 16 months! (And it tasting just as good as I remembered it being!)
- Being complimented on my dress and appearance.
- Being able to take a couple of days of vacation
Friday's To Do List:
- Go to the garden center for tomato cages
- Finish assembling the trellis
- Put away laundry
