I woke up to the sound of the telephone ringing at 8:30 a.m. My first confused thought was, "Who is calling at 8:30 a.m. on a Saturday?" LOL. It was the dr's office to confirm tomorrow's appt. and, of course, it wasn't Saturday! After that, I tried to go back to sleep, but couldn't, so, got up, had my tea, did a load of laundry, did some office work, etc.
Then, in the afternoon, drove to the clinic for my next injection. I've a rash at yesterday's injection site - so the nurse practitioner looked at it, said it was a fairly common side effect and told to put some cortisone cream on it. Today's injection was given in the other (right) arm.
It was still raining when I went to the clinic, but had ceased by the time we came out. We drove to one of the malls on the way home - I stayed in the car while daughter went to 2 stores to buy a few more gifts. When we came home, we found a gift from one of my nieces waiting on my doorstep - a basket of fresh fruits, cheese and crackers, pretzels, cookies, and some candy/chocolates. I haven't got my gifts for her and her 2 boys, yet. I guess it'll have to be New Year gifts for them!
And finally, I took a picture of the hair I combed out, this morning:

Today, I am grateful for:
- Some desperately needed rain
- Safe driving on rain slick roads
- Gifts from my niece
- Phone calls from family and friends
- My daughter's company
