I took it rather easy, today. I first woke up at 6:30 a.m., turned the heater up as I felt cold, and went back to sleep! When I woke up later in the morning, I stayed in bed for a bit. My shoulder and knee felt much better, today, but I still decided to take it easy. Taking it easy included a nap on the sofa, in the afternoon, cuddled under a crocheted throw.
The forecast called for rain, but the day turned out to be clear and sunny, although it clouded over later in the evening. Daughter, however, has been having rain all weekend. I aired the house in the afternoon during the warmest part of the day. But I decided not to go for a walk today. I want to give my knee another day or so to rest.
My neighbor called to check on me around 11:00 a.m. and later, one of my friends called. And, of course, my daughter. :) It was also the birthday of one of my friends and I wished her. Later, I exchanged emails with another friend and video chatted with my daughter. So, it was a good day for keeping in touch with daughter and friends.
I did minimal housekeeping, today. Only did the dishes and scrubbed my toilet.
I also did a little cooking: rice, fish curry, dhal (lentil) curry, and made a cucumber salad, as well. Since I am trying to eat from the freezer and the pantry as much as possible, this month, the piece of fish, and the onions and green chilies used in the curries, were from the freezer; the dhal, rice, and coconut milk (along with the curry powder, etc.) were from my pantry, and the cucumber is what I had in the fridge. The lemon for the curries and the cucumber salad, and the curry leaves I used for the fish and dhal, came from the garden. :) I had some of the rice, fish, and dhal for my dinner, along with the cucumber salad, which was a bit of an after-thought and was eaten a bit later, in lieu of dessert! There's enough rice and curries leftover for at least 2 more meals. I just have to cook another vegetable (probably the zucchini that's in the fridge, or the green beans, or both).
Today, I am grateful for:
- My shoulder and knee feeling better.
- Pleasant weather.
- Chatting with my daughter and friends.
- A well-stocked freezer and pantry.
- An afternoon nap on the sofa.
Tomorrow, however, is a working day for me, although I am planning to call my supervisor in the morning to tell her about my fall and ask if I may work from home for another day or two.
Monday's To Do List:
- Call supervisor
- Call primary care PA to inform about fall
- Do office work
- Empty household waste baskets and kitchen trash can
- Take the big trash cans to the curb for pick up on Tuesday
- Start taking down the Christmas decorations
