Monday in Review

It was another warm day, here, today.  Already 86F when I left to go to the clinic at 10:30 a.m. and 97F when I came back home at 12:15 p.m.  It had cooled down to a much more comfortable temperature when I went out to water the front garden a little after 8:00 p.m., though.

I've had a relatively quiet day.  One of my cousins called in the morning to ask if she could borrow my cat carrier.  I said yes, so she came over and collected it. She needs it to take one of her cats to the vet.

After she left, I went for my radiation treatment. The two days of treatment I missed last week (due to the radiation burns) will be made up this week - today and tomorrow.  Then, on Wednesday, the radiation oncologist will mark the area to receive the booster treatments.  I will have Thursday off (so they can calculate the dosage I am to receive, according to the technician) and I will start the booster treatments on Friday.   There will be a total of 7 booster treatments.  If all goes well, provided I don't have any breaks due to additional skin burns, etc., I should be done with the radiation just before the end of this month!  Just a few days short of the one year anniversary of my biopsy!  It has been a long year.
After I came home, I had some of the rice and the last of the trout I had cooked earlier, for my lunch.  Then, I washed the covers of the other sofa in the afternoon, watched Olympics coverage, and took a nap!  Later, I went through the fridge and tossed some old food, took the trash cans out to the curb, watered the front garden, watered the indoor plants and video chatted with daughter.   Dinner was scrambled egg on toast.

I had planned to put back the washed sofa covers and dust my bedroom, but didn't get around to doing them.  They'll be added to my to do list for tomorrow:
- Go to my radiation appointment
- Put back the washed sofa covers
- Bring back the trash cans
- Water the back garden
- Dust my bedroom
- Wash bath mats, etc.
- Buy strawberries, on sale Tuesday only, for $.99/lb.
- Put gas to the car

Today, I am grateful for:

- Radiation #27 completed.
- Safe drives to the clinic and back.
- Friendly staff at the clinic and parking garage.
- Afternoon naps.
- Cooler evenings to make up for the day time heat.
How was your Monday?  What have you planned for Tuesday?


  1. You have a long to do list tomorrow. Sending hugs and take it steady x

    1. Thank you, Lyssa. Taking it one step at a time. :) Hope all is well with you.

  2. There's light at the end of the tunnel! I hope your skin is OK so you can get on with it and get it all done without any additional delays. $0.99/lb strawberries! What a great price!

    1. As long as the light is not an on-coming train! :D

      That's the best price for strawberries I'll see for the rest of this year, I think.
