|A.M. Temperature in the Family Room|
Anyway, once I was up and about, I felt OK. I have been told to take Tylenol or any other pain medicine for the aches and pain, but I try not to. I had a cup of coffee, got dressed, packed my lunch (last of the chicken stir fry and rice) and left to go to the office.
But not so quickly! My nextdoor neighbors, whose garage caught fire earlier in the year, had workmen over to clean up the burnt structure. One of the workmen had parked his truck blocking half my driveway! I had to go over and ask them to move the truck so I could pull out of my driveway!
Once at the office, I had a productive day. Today, we had a surprise lunch to celebrate my supervisor's retirement and another colleague's birthday. Pizza, pumpkin pie, and cookies. I had a slice of pizza and a piece of pie, but passed on the cookies. The lunch I packed was brought home. I thought I'll have it for dinner, but when dinner time came around, I wasn't very hungry, so I had a tuna sandwich, instead.
The day that started out cool warmed up nicely and it was 84F outside when I came home and almost 72F inside the house:
I received a lovely surprise in the mail, today. October is breast cancer awareness month and one of my friends (who is a cancer survivor, herself) and her daughter had mailed me two gift cards for free smoothies:

Yet another friend reached out to me on-line, checking to see if everything was OK, because she hadn't heard from me in a while. I wrote a long response to her and realized just how much has happened in just the past three weeks since I last corresponded with her.
Later, I exchanged emails with another friend and video chatted with my daughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Friends who care
- Surprise gifts in the mail
- Pizza and pumpkin pie at the office
- Cool mornings and warm afternoons
- Being alive
How was your Thursday?
