|Flowers from Friends
We had a summer day, today, with temperatures in the upper 80s!
I had a quiet, but busy day. I called the clinic in the morning to find out about the blood test results. They said the test results were good and I didn't need an injection before chemo. I was very happy to hear that.
Later in the morning, one of my friends and her daughter, who lives out of state but was home on a visit, dropped by to visit me. I was in the middle of putting away laundry when they knocked on the door! They brought me the bouquet of flowers in the photograph above.
After my friend left, I did a load of laundry (daughter's bed linen) and did some office work. I finished one assignment and did most of another assignment. I plan to finish that assignment tomorrow and send it in. Later in the afternoon, I sewed on my quilt. I am finally starting to see a dent in the bag of scrap fabric! Not the two baskets of bigger pieces; just the zippered gallon size bag of small scraps! LOL.
In the evening, I watered the front garden, especially the newly planted rose bushes. They seem to be doing well as they all have buds forming! Then, I ran the dishwasher even though I didn't have a full load after collecting two days' worth of dishes! And I remade daughter's bed with the freshly washed sheets; I had hung them up to dry during the day and they had dried by early evening.
Still later in the evening, I called one of my aunts to check on her (she is having bronchitis) and one of my cousins called. And, of course, I video chatted with my daughter. She was busy making a birthday gift for one of her friends. She will be flying down, tomorrow night, for a week of spring break (although she will work at her part-time job from home on Tuesday and Thursday). Of course she will go with me when I go for my chemo session on Friday morning (and probably hydration on Monday morning), etc., but, hopefully, there will be time for her to relax and get together with some of her friends, as well, during her spring break.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A warm, summer-like day.
- A visit from a friend.
- A lovely bouquet of flowers.
- Blood test results were OK.
- A productive day.
How was your day?
