Wednesday's Doings

Today, I called the radiology center to make the appointment for my diagnostic tests.  They are scheduled for Tuesday, September 1.  I am blessed to have access to health care.

I went to the office, today, and enjoyed the blessing of free air conditioning.  There was an emergency preparedness awareness fair across the street and two colleagues and I went to check it out.  We picked up some literature and some free goodies.  I live in an earthquake prone area, so emergency preparedness is something I try to keep on top of.  I have emergency supplies at my desk at work (water, food, thermal blanket, hard hat and work gloves, etc.) and emergency supplies at home (at least 3 days worth of water, food, first aid kit, flash lights, etc.)

Daughter met up with one of her college friends for lunch, and, afterwards, they both came to my office.  Daughter rode home with me and we dropped off her friend at the bus stop on our way home.

Once home, I put water to the orange tree and the peach tree, as they were starting to wilt.  Will water the rest of the back garden, tomorrow.  Need to water the indoor plants, too.

Later, I cooked a chicken curry with the 8 lbs. of chicken leg quarters I bought yesterday.  There is enough for Friday's dinner, when I've invited friends over, plus some for the freezer.  A little bit of bulk cooking now means I won't have to cook as much later.

In between, I continued to read the book a friend had given me.

Today, I am grateful for:

- Access to health care
- Air conditioned offices
- My daughter having good friends
- Water for my garden
- Time to read

What was your day like?  What were you grateful for, today?
