This morning, when I stepped outside to go to my car (it is parked in the garage, but my garage is a detached garage), I realized that winter has arrived! It was cold for us - about 50F.
I went to the office and had a productive day. In the afternoon, I received a text from the pharmacy that the medications my primary care PA had called in were ready for pick up. So, I went to the pharmacy, again, after work. Again, there was no problem getting my medications!
After that, I went to the dollar store, next door to the pharmacy, to look around, but I didn't buy anything. I want to buy a calendar for next year, but this store didn't have the kind I am looking for, with the large grid, where the spaces for each day are big enough to write in more than one appointment. I'll keep looking.
It was drizzling a little when I came home. We haven't had any rain in a long time, so I was glad there was some precipitation, although the roads were rather slick.
My cousin had called and left a message, inviting me again to Christmas lunch at her house. She had invited me at Thanksgiving, but she was confirming it. I called back and left a message confirming that we'll be there and asking what she'd like me to bring for the dinner.
My aunt called, too, to check on me and to tell me again that the almsgiving went off well.
Today, I call the service garage and made an appointment for Saturday morning to have the car serviced.
I didn't need to water the back garden because it rained.
Thursday's to do list:
- Go to the office
- Go to the farmers' market, maybe?
- Go to the bank
- Pick up daughter from the airport!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Rain, even if it was just a little bit
- The pharmacy got it right, again!
- Safe driving, especially on rain slick roads
- Cousin calling to confirm invitation to Christmas dinner
- Aunt calling to check on me
It's Winter Solstice, tomorrow! Are you doing anything to celebrate?
