Tuesday was a very overcast and cool day (59F when I woke up and a high of 64F in the afternoon). I am afraid it might be too cold for my okra to germinate!
I took it easy in the morning, responding to blog comments, reading other blogs, etc. Then, I went for the blood test. My appointment was scheduled for 1:00 p.m., but, I still had a 20 minutes wait! The waiting room was full (only 6 people are allowed at one time to keep the required social distancing) and I waited out in the hallway, but, that was a bit crowded too, with the overflow patients. After over 20 minutes of waiting, I was called in, even though there was one other person ahead of me in line (I was told that they were waiting for a fax from that person's doctor before they could attend to her). The blood test, itself, went smoothly. My favorite lab technician attended to me and we chatted for a few minutes (she was the one who gave me her phone number on a previous visit and told me to call her if I needed any groceries picked up, etc.)
Came home by 2:00 p.m. and ate brunch (I had gone fasting for the blood test; I had a granola bar with me to eat in the car, if I needed to, but, preferred to come home and eat). Then, read and relaxed for a bit before practicing the piano.
My piano lesson was at 6:00 p.m. I was given an A+ (no stickers, though, unless I give myself one!) on the theme from Godfather, Hedwig's theme, and an etude. I still need to work on the minuet from the last lesson. Today, I received two new pieces: Minuet in D Minor by Leopold Mozart (I think; the title and composer's name are in Russian on the sheet music that S photocopied for me) and Arabesque by Johann Burgmuller.
Daughter had leftover rice and curries for dinner; I was not very hungry after having noodle soup for brunch, so I had a toasted cheese sandwich. I also made some fresh fruit salad with an apple, a plum, an orange, a handful of blueberries, and some cashews for us to share; I added raisins to my portion only because daughter doesn't like raisins.
Later, I chatted with friend R.
I'm afraid that I didn't get through my To Do list, today. I will have to be extra productive, tomorrow!
Today, I am grateful for:
- A safe drive to the lab and back
- The blood test went smoothly
- Medical insurance
- S teaching me to play the piano
- Working appliances
Today's joyful activity was playing the piano.
How was your Tuesday? What are your plans for Wednesday?
