A Thursday in September

Today, I went to the office.  My supervisor and colleagues were surprised to see me; they thought I'd take the day off to spend with daughter.  But daughter had to work on-line from home as previously arranged with her job, so I knew she would be busy.  Besides, I will be taking a day of vacation tomorrow and on Monday, too. 

During my morning break, I went down to the farmers market and bought some croissants; an almond one for me and a chocolate one for daughter.  During my lunch break, I went to the bank.  And on my way home from work, I stopped at the library to return some books and to borrow a book I had placed on hold.  It's a book on breast cancer that someone had recommended to me.  So I was able to run a couple of errands, as well.

It was so lovely to come home and receive a hug from daughter! It was so nice to have her make me a cup of tea!  I gave her the chocolate croissant I had bought for her and we talked about our day, and a few other things, just like we always do.  Later, she did some of her studying (she has a presentation project due on Monday evening, when she goes back, and a test later in the week) while I went on-line for a bit and spoke with a friend who called. 

Dinner was leftovers from what my friend had prepared for us on Tuesday.  I think she gave us so much food that there's more left over for tomorrow, as well! 

Tomorrow, I have made a couple of appointments to go with daughter to attend to a few things; paperwork, etc., so that things will be taken care of when I won't feel like doing much after treatment starts (I expect I shan't feel too good once chemo starts; been reading up possible side effects; I just hope I won't get any of the more severe side effects).

Today, I am grateful for:

- A productive day
- Hugs from daughter
- Croissants
- Good friends
- Cooler weather

How was your Thursday?  What did you do to celebrate the day?  


  1. The crossiants sound wonderful.. Know you two enjoyed them
    Proud your getting all your stuff [paperwork, etc] all done.. This will save you a lot
    of stress later.
    Enjoy visiting with your daughter , Know I am praying for you. also praying for the chemo treatments and all your aftercare.

    1. Thank you, Judy. The croissants were great. And yes, getting as much of the paperwork done ahead of time will be helpful - less to worry about when I am not feeling my best during treatment. Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  2. Dinner is always nice when you don't have to cook it :-) I'm glad you've been getting to spend extra time with your daughter.

    1. Jess, I agree! Dinner is nice when someone else makes it. Daughter goes back, today, and I'm going to miss her! But it was nice to have her home with me for an extended visit.
