I had a fairly productive day and was able to send off some completed sections of one assignment.
At lunch time, I tried using one of the two stairways to go down to the floor below, where the microwave is set up, but I found that the door from the stairway to the floor below was locked! So, I walked back up to my floor (thank goodness that door was unlocked - I tried it to see before I closed it- otherwise, I might have been stuck inside a locked stairwell!) and took the elevator down! Tomorrow, I will try the other stairway - I was told that that door was unlocked! I ate my lunch at my desk - leftover rice casserole and a fresh orange that I had picked from the tree this morning. I haven't gone walking during my lunch breaks, yet, but, I am getting some exercise by walking to and from the bus stop, climbing the stairs from the street level to the lobby level to enter the new building, and taking the stairs between floors when possible. I will resume my lunch time walks, next week, I think.
Later in the evening, I made the curry puffs I had been planning to make. To the previously browned ground beef, I added diced onions, diced celery, some green bell pepper, some tomato, a handful of frozen green peas, and some of the cooked potato. Then, I added chili powder and curry powder and other seasonings. By the time I prepared the ground beef mixture and allowed it to cool down a bit, the package of frozen puff pastry squares had thawed and I made the curry puffs. I baked them and had one for my dinner. I packed two for my lunch to take to the office tomorrow and put the rest in the fridge.
Cousin P called in the evening and we had a nice chat. After that, daughter and I video chatted.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Finding my way to the new office and back without any further difficulties
- Getting some exercise by walking to and from the bus stop, etc.
- A productive work day
- Meeting a couple of colleagues I haven't seen in a long time
- Chatting with my cousin and my daughter; exchanging emails with a friend.
How was your day? Do you find it take you a few days to get your bearings when you move to a new place? Do you realize it will be Friday the 13th tomorrow?
