Today was a quiet day.  I did office work, most of the day, and not much else.  I stayed indoors all morning because it felt cold outside, but the afternoon was pleasant and I walked a bit in the drive way and opened the windows to air out the house.   I brought my trash cans in and took my neighbor's trash can in for her.  She called me later in the evening to ask if I had any Tylenol, as her husband needed some and she didn't have any in the house, so I walked over and handed her what I had.  I will buy myself another bottle of Tylenol, tomorrow.

I didn't feel up to mopping the kitchen floor, today, so I didn't attempt it.  Instead, I took it easy, did a bit of crochet, chatted on the phone with one of my aunts and a friend, and video chatted with my daughter. 

Tuesday's To Do List:
- Office work - DONE
- Bring trash cans in - DONE (took neighbor's trash cans in for her, too)
- Paperwork and filing - DID SOME
- Mop kitchen floor
- Clean litter box - DONE

Breakfast was a banana and a slice of buttered bread.  Lunch was the last of the tomato soup.  Dinner was baked breaded fish fillets with rice, green peas, and carrots, with a tangerine for dessert:


Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to help my neighbor
- A working heater
- Daughter had a safe trip to Sacramento and back to attend a meeting
- Phone calls and emails from family and friends
- A quiet, but productive, day

Wednesday's To Do List:
- Doctor's appointment with primary care physician in a.m.
- Doctor's appointment with radiation oncologist in p.m.
- Pharmacy
- Office work
- Mop kitchen

How was your day?


  1. Sending hugs. I know this sounds a strange thing to pick up from a blog post, but you sound tired. I think you have hit a tough part of the mountain path, so prayers continue. Good luck for your appointments. x

    1. Thanks, Lyssa. You are very perceptive. :) I did feel a bit worn out, yesterday and not quite right. A lot better, today, though. The morning appointment lasted practically all morning! Going to leave in a few minutes to the afternoon appointment.

  2. A quiet, but productive day. Sounds like just what the doctor ordered. :)

    1. Thank you, Live and Learn. I'm trying not to overdo things, especially when I don't quite feel up to it. :)

  3. After the fantastic MRI results are you feeling confident enough to walk out and about on your own again? Glad to see you aren't pushing yourself to do things you don't feel up to. The kitchen floor will still be there tomorrow although if you're anything like me things like that play on my mind - I've had to work hard since the HA to let certain things not bother me as much as they used to :) xx

    1. Just a little bit, in the front, where neighbors can see me if I fall! Yes, the kitchen floor is still waiting! I spilled something - ketchup, I think - that has left a sticky spot on the floor! Maybe Christopher Elf has been around my kitchen, too?

  4. Proud you rested when you felt tired.. Praying for you.. hugs.

    1. Thank you, Judy. Hard to stop from pushing through even if tired, but know I shouldn't. :)
