I woke up once, when my daughter texted to wish me a good morning, as she does, every day. Then, I went back to sleep and woke up, again, when the phone rang. Cousin P calling. But, today, I let the call go to the answering machine, except, she didn't leave a message. I tried to go back to sleep, but this time, I couldn't. So, I got up and had a cup of coffee. I called cousin P back and left her message. She called me back later and we had a nice chat.
The pharmacy had texted that a medication refill was ready to be picked up, so I revised my to do list to include a trip to the pharmacy. And since there is a branch of my bank at the same shopping center as the pharmacy, I decided to go to the bank, as well. But first, I cleaned my bathroom.
I received another $5 Extra Care Bucks coupon and another $1 off any item coupon! I decided to use the $5 ECB to buy another bottle of antacids ($4.99), since I was coming to the end of the one I had and I used the $1 off coupon to buy a box of cornflakes ($1.99). I paid $1.17 out of pocket.
Friend M came over to do the garden and he was so happy to see the roses blooming. He did some tidying up and watered the front garden for me.
Friend R called to say she wasn't up to going to the temple with me, today. So, I went on my own. The meditation session was very relaxing. I stayed for part of the discussion, but left before it ended.
Lunch had been a cold cuts sandwich. On the way home, I debated getting a hamburger for dinner or going home and cooking something. I decided to get a small hamburger, but there were so many cars at the drive through, that I changed my mind and came home, instead. I had rice, chicken, and cauliflower in the fridge, but, I decided to cook pasta and have that with the chicken. I thought of pasta with spaghetti sauce, but that didn't appeal. Pasta with some sort of white sauce? Not really. Instead, I made a stir-fried "chow mein" type dish with the pasta:
|"Chow Mein" for dinner|
The rest is in the fridge for another meal. Maybe tomorrow's dinner. Much better, too, than the hamburger I was thinking of buying!
Aunt T had called and left a message while I was at the temple. It was too late to call her back when I got home; I will call her, tomorrow.
Daughter and I video chatted for a bit in the evening. She, too, had made pasta for dinner - but she made a pumpkin coconut sauce for her pasta.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Drama-free prescription refills
- $6 in coupons
- Keeping in touch with family and friends
- Being able to attend the meditation session
- Video chatting with my daughter
