|No more mistaking the paper cutting scissors for the fabric cutting pair|
Sunday morning, I finished sewing my black blouse. After my experience with trying to cut the fabric with the paper cutting scissors, I marked the paper cutting scissors with a P and the fabric cutting scissors with a F, using a permanent marker. I should have done that earlier, but better late than never, I suppose.
One of my aunts called in the morning and my neighbor and I had our weekly Sunday morning chat. I did a load of laundry, as well, and cleaned the litter box.
Sunday afternoon, I went out to a late lunch/early dinner with my friend and wore my new blouse. Friend and I went to one of our favorite restaurants, where they start serving their dinner menu at 3:00 p.m. We got there 10 minutes to 3:00, but we asked our server if we could order from the dinner menu and she said yes, and gave us the early bird discount, as well! My friend and I had the pork chops with grilled onions and applesauce dinner. It came with soup or salad (I had the salad, my friend had the soup), steamed vegetables and choice of mashed potatoes, fries, or coleslaw.
After lunch, my friend came home with me and we spent the afternoon chatting. I drove her home after tea, then came home and went for my walk. Later in the evening, I did the dishes and watched some TV.
On Sunday, I was grateful for:
- I was able to sew myself a blouse with a remnant piece of fabric in the stash
- I managed to overcome the shortcomings of the fabric without getting frustrated
- I was able to go out to lunch with my friend
- My friend's company in the afternoon
- I was able to go for another walk
On Monday, I had a relatively quiet day. I had the day off from work and slept in till late morning. Then, I called the clinic to ask about one of my blood pressure medications (the one I couldn't get on Friday). The pharmacy had said the clinic hadn't responded to the refill request. The clinic, when I called today, claimed that medication is not listed on my record and I should see the Physician Assistant. I told them that the PA is aware that I am on this medication as I've been on it for some time and I have an appointment to see her later this month, anyway. I was asked to remain on the line while they called the pharmacy and spoke to them. Then, the girl came back on the phone with me to say the pharmacy was going to send another request. That would be the 3rd request for this one medication refill. I will give the pharmacy another day or so (not sure if they are open tomorrow, anyway) and then, see what happened. In the meantime, I am taking the last 3 pills every other day to make them last longer.
In any case, I will need to go to the pharmacy in the next couple of days about one of my other medications - for some reason, they gave me a refill for the lower dosage that I was taken off of and which I had told the pharmacy I was no longer on. I know they try their best, but, my goodness, they get an award for making mistakes! Of course, it is partially my fault, too, for not double checking the refill dosage when I picked up the medication. Sigh.
Later in the afternoon, I put away the laundry from yesterday and pulled out another half-sewn blouse. It is another pieced-out blouse! When I first cut it out, I had to insert a panel down the front to make it big enough to fit me. Then,something else went wrong and I put it away. Today, when I tried it on, it was too big! So, I spent the afternoon unpicking the whole thing. Later, I sewed most of it again. Tomorrow, I will finish sewing it. There's a matching skirt, which I sewed earlier. Together, they will look like a dress (I hope).
I went for another walk, today. I walked the same distance I walked on Saturday - to the first major intersection plus one additional block and back.
On Monday, I am grateful for:
- Having the day off from work
- Being able to sleep in
- My seam ripper
- Another relatively cool day
- An afternoon nap
Tuesday is Fourth of July, when we celebrate Independence Day. I am planning to spend a quiet day at home, sewing my blouse and doing some house cleaning. What are your plans for Tuesday?
