I had the day off, today, and, although there were lots of things to do, I decided to take it easy.
The heater worked well last night - maybe a bit too well! I turned it on around 2:30 a.m., and set it at 70F. I think it was on all night and the thermometer in the family room registered 80F when I woke up! It was another sunny, warm day, today, with the highs in the mid-70s! I opened the windows to let the fresh air and sunshine in and felt warm enough to change out of my sweatshirt into a short sleeved blouse and take off my socks! LOL!
I spent the morning catching up on blogs. Then, I replied to an email a friend had sent.
I tried to take a nap in the afternoon, but I couldn't fall asleep, so I lay on the sofa and read one of the magazines I had borrowed from the library. They are due next week, so I need to finish reading them. I can read the same magazine over and over again without getting tired of it, sometimes reading the decorating articles, sometimes the gardening stuff, sometimes the recipes, so it takes me a long time to go through a magazine!
Dancer decided I was spending too much time on the computer and not enough time cuddling him:
|"You have to reach around me to type, Mummy"|
I think he has forgiven me for giving him the flea meds, yesterday (he no longer has any fleas, but I am applying the meds as a preventive measure!)
In the afternoon, I called and made an appointment with my financial planner for later this month. Then, I called the monks at the temple and settled on a date for my almsgiving in December. Later, in the evening, I called my aunt and my friend to tell them the almsgiving date. I will call the other friends and family members later. I also did a load of laundry and hung it up to dry and took the trash cans to the curb. I started doing some paperwork, but, by then, I had a bit of a headache/eye ache, so I didn't finish the paperwork.
Breakfast was a banana, lunch was a cold cuts sandwich, dinner was some of the chicken chili and a cucumber salad, grapes for dessert. I also ate some chocolate, which I probably shouldn't have, but it helped with the headache! At least, that's my story and I am sticking to it! (I also drank a couple of glasses of water, in case the headache was due to dehydration.)
Today, I was grateful for:
- The sunny, warm day
- Having the day off from work
- Relaxing at home
- Dancer coming to me for cuddles!
- Getting a few things done, after all
Tuesday's To Do List:
- Go to the office
- Pay property tax bill
- Put away the washed dishes
