Wednesday: Blood Tests and Rain

Today was a productive day, too. 

I went for my blood tests in the morning.  You know you've been going to the lab for blood tests too often when the staff know you on a first name basis!  I had to be fasting for today's blood tests, so, after I came back, I made myself breakfast - fried potatoes, ham, and a scrambled egg; the same as yesterday's.  I also had a quick chat with one of my cousins.

After that, I downloaded the new work assignment and called my supervisor to discuss the assignment with her.  Then, spent most of the day working on office work.  I was able to send back half of the completed work assignment by the end of the work day, today; the balance half will be done tomorrow. 

In between, I stripped the beds and did a load of laundry (the bed sheets, etc.)  Lunch was half a small (personal size) frozen pizza; I'll probably have the other half for dinner.
It has been raining, here, all afternoon and evening - a slow, gentle, drizzly rain, but rain, nevertheless.  Just the thing for the newly transplanted plants and my garden in general.  It's turned cool, too.  We are not in the 80s and 90s anymore.

I need to remake the beds, and will video chat with daughter and knit, later this evening.

Today, I am grateful for:

- The rain!
- A safe drive to the lab and back.
- Continued work assignments.
- Washing machines.
- A productive day.

How was your Wednesday?


  1. Sounds like you are really, really busy! Glad you are happy to see the rain - too much over here. I wish we could swap x

    1. This is my "good" week, when I feel more or less back to normal, so I am trying to accomplish as much as I can. There's a lot more cleaning/organizing type work I could be doing, though.

      As for the rain, we desperately need it to break our 4-year drought. This is our "rainy season" and we were promised lots of rain due to El Nino, but so far, we haven't had as much as predicted and no where as much as needed.

  2. Glad you got some rain and had a productive day. My Wednesday was okay, but Little Wolf was in a mood all day. I was ready for bed!

    1. Sounds like someone is ready to start the "terrible two's" a bit ahead of schedule! LOL. Hope today was a better day.

  3. So proud your having a good day. Proud you got your blood work done, and your other work in process. Praying for your chemo treatment.

    1. Thank you, Judy. Know I'll need all the prayers because I need the strength to get through this one.
