Today is the last day of May and May Gray made itself felt in the morning - it was cold, overcast, drizzly in areas, and more winter-like than spring. But, later, in the afternoon, the clouds moved away and the sun began to shine and it warmed up a little.
I walked past the farmers' market on my way to the bus stop, in the morning, but chose not to buy anything. It was hard to walk past the French bakery stall, but I managed to resist the charms of both the French gentleman who mans the booth and addresses me as "Madame" in a lovely accent and the almond croissants/bear claws that are my favorite pastries!
Breakfast, today, was cheese crackers. Maybe not the best choice, nutritionally, but a bit better than an almond croissant, I think.
Lunch was leftovers from last night's dinner - Spanish rice and chicken stir-fry.
An orange picked from my tree for dessert/afternoon snack:
|Orange from my tree|
It is one of the last oranges from the tree. I picked the last 5 oranges when daughter was home, so she could enjoy them and she left two of the oranges for me. Now, we wait for the new crop of oranges to grow and ripen!
I also took some pumpkin seeds as an additional snack and had some; a 1/4 cup serving size contains 15% of the daily requirement of iron, according to the nutrition label on the package:
I had a very productive day at the office. Colleagues are asking me if I am feeling excited about retiring, but, as I tell them, I've been too busy to give it a lot of thought! Maybe after I put in the papers, I'll start getting excited about it!
The pharmacy had texted me in the morning, saying a prescription refill was ready for pick up. So, after work, I drove to the pharmacy, directly, and picked up the refill. I received a receipt showing I had $12 worth of Extra Care Bucks! I looked around the store to see what I wanted to get with that, but couldn't decide, so didn't buy anything! I think the coupon is valid till June 7, so I will go back to the pharmacy another day to make my selection.
After I came home, I had a cup of tea and made some phone calls - Aunt T, cousin P, and friend R, to check on them. Then, I did a load of laundry and watered the indoor plants.
I made an omelette (1 egg) for dinner, and had it with a salad:
I made a salad to take to the office for lunch, at the same time, but I need to make a sandwich or something to have in addition to the salad.
Later, I video chatted with daughter. She had to attend a day of training on the campus of University of California Davis and took the train there and back.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A productive day at the office
- Daughter had a safe train ride to her training and back
- I had a safe commute to work and back
- Sunshine in the afternoon
- The things I was able to accomplish
