|Dancer letting the blood flow to his head!|
Apparently, today is National Hug Your Cat Day! Dancer tolerated a hug from me, but I couldn't take a picture. This is him, half hanging off the side of daughter's bed, a couple of days ago.
Today, I slept till 10:30 a.m. and got another 8 hrs. of sleep, for a change. I woke up once at about 6:45 a.m., feeling energetic, but went back to sleep. When I woke up, later, I felt lethargic!
I spent a relaxed morning, replying to blog comments and commenting on other blogs.
I didn't feel like going grocery shopping, so I checked the fridge and freezer and decided I could wait on the grocery shopping. I might need milk and, maybe bread, before the end of the week, but I can wait until the weekend to go grocery shopping. Besides, I need to use up what I have in the fridge because I've been buying too much and things have been going bad before I can use them up!
I received a letter authorizing the additional tests that the doctor had wanted me to do, so I called the hospital and made the appointments. That means I have five medical appointments scheduled for this month!
In the afternoon, I tidied and dusted the living room and later, I emptied the waste baskets and took the trash cans to the curb, did the dishes, and cooked dinner.
Brunch had been tuna salad on crackers (5 crackers make a serving, according to the box) with half an apple, sliced. Later, around tea time, I got hungry and had a tuna salad sandwich, with the rest of the tuna salad! When it was time to cook dinner, I looked in the freezer and decided on fish! I guess today was my day to eat fish!
The fish I cooked is a type of mackerel called Seer fish or King fish; I buy it frozen from the Sri Lankan store. I cooked one large fish steak with sliced onions and tomatoes. I cooked carrots and frozen green peas and red skinned potatoes to accompany it:
I'll take some of the leftovers for my lunch, tomorrow. There is enough fish left over for three more servings although the sides are probably enough for one, maybe two, meals.
I had the remaining half of the apple from brunch, for dessert.
I also called one of my friends to check on her husband, who had undergone a biopsy on Friday. They received the results today and have an appointment with the doctor, next week.
Later in the evening, I replied to a friend's email and video chatted with daughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Another day in which to rest
- 8 hours of sleep
- The abundance that is in my fridge and freezer
- Getting my medical appointments scheduled
- What I was able to accomplish today.
Because I didn't go grocery shopping and didn't do a couple of other things I had on my to do list for today, I felt I didn't do much, today. But, when I spoke with daughter, she pointed out that I had, in fact, done quite a lot! What didn't get done will be done later.
