Not As Productive Wednesday

I might have done too much, yesterday!  I had a rather disturbed night of sleep last night (kept having weird dreams and waking up) and woke up feeling a bit tired, today.  

But, I went for my blood tests in the morning.   I went fasting, so I was quite hungry by the time I got back.  When I came home, I made myself a scrambled egg and a fried potato for brunch. 

Then, I did my office work.  I also did 2 loads of laundry.  And called my primary care doctor's office because the pharmacy had called and said they needed authorization on two of my medications in order to refill them.  I had a bit of a headache by then, so I took a nap in the afternoon.  Later in the evening, I deadheaded the roses. I didn't do any housecleaning, today, or my paperwork, but that's OK.  Maybe I'll feel more energetic tomorrow. 

One of my aunts called in the evening and I had a nice chat with her.  She said she's unable to visit right now since her daughter is busy with visiting in-laws, but she'll visit me later when they are not as busy.  It's been awhile since I last saw this aunt and cousin, so it'll be nice to see them again, one of these days.

Dinner tonight was a salad (lettuce, cucumber, carrots) with slices of chicken breast.  I had been told to avoid raw vegetables to minimize getting sick, so I was extra careful and washed all the salad stuff in a mixture of vinegar and water.  I never thought I would crave salad, but after so many months of not eating any, I have been really wanting salads!

Today, I am grateful for:
- Blood tests were done without any difficulties.
- Getting office work done.
- Afternoon naps.
- A stroll around the garden as I deadheaded the roses.
- A call from aunt.

How was your Wednesday?


  1. Your 'down day' sounds quite productive. It's so interesting hearing about your garden - our roses will not be in bloom for another month or two! x

    1. Thank you. I need to remember that I can't do quite as much as I would like to, while undergoing treatment, etc. I just did a post about the garden; hope you enjoy reading it.

  2. Sorry you had a rough sleeping night.. Hope tonight is better.
    The garden is beautiful..

    1. Thanks, Judy. I slept better, last night, and hopefully will do tonight, as well.
