The winds actually started blowing on Sunday night and continued throughout the day on Monday, into Monday night. Strong winds which have knocked down branches, dried palm fronds, and trees. When I came home from work, Monday evening, there was a Street Tree maintenance truck in front of my neighbor's house - I guess they cut down the dead tree in front of her house before it fell down due to the winds.
It was either the winds blowing all the dust around or the atmospheric pressure that caused me to wake up with a slight headache on Monday morning. Or, perhaps, it was a lack of adequate sleep. Or, dehydration. Or a combination of all three. The headache lingered even as I went to work; but slowly wore off in the evening.
It was a chilly day for us. It was 54F when I left for work in the morning. I forgot to check the temperature outside when I came home, but it was 60F inside the house, in the family room (where the temperature gauge is set up). I turned on the heater and now it has gone off, which means the living room area has reached 70F (thermostat is in the living room/dining area); the family room has warmed up to 64F! The single gas wall heater is not very effective when it comes to heating up the whole house through diffusion. But it's better than the old floor heater, which didn't work properly, at all.
Breakfast was a cup of coffee (with milk) before I left the house in the morning, followed by a groundbeef filled bread roll I baked on Sunday. Grapes for mid-morning snack. Lunch was two more of the groundbeef rolls. Afternoon snack was a banana and peanut butter. I had a cup of tea with milk when I came home in the evening. Dinner was salmon, half a baked potato, sauted zucchini, apple juice, and cashew-stuffed dates for dessert.
I didn't spend any money, on Monday.
- The winds didn't cause any damage to my house and garden
- Safe commutes to work and back
- A working heater
- Leftovers for dinner (didn't have to cook)
- Kitty curling up on my lap to keep warm
How was your Monday? Did you have a good start to your work week?
