I took it easy, today, too. I barely did anything on my to do list! Instead, I sorted through the donations daughter and I had set aside and bagged up the clothes and footwear. I have 8 bags of clothes and 2 bags of shoes and boots. I still need to box up the books and then, I will call for a pick up. There are more bags of donations in the garage, too.
Cousin P called in the morning and I chatted with her. Later, I brought the trash cans in from the curb. And wished my friend E for her birthday. I met E the second day after I arrived in this country. She lived in the apartment below mine and one of the deans at the university had urged her to introduce herself to me. So, she came up and introduced herself to me and we talked until after midnight, that first day! We've been friends, ever since!
In the evening, I went to the knitting group. I shouldn't have bothered. There were five other ladies and they carried on a very animated conversation in Spanish. From the few words I could make out, I gathered that they were discussing the child molestation charges brought against the Catholic priests. I just sat there and knitted while the conversation went on around me. I felt I should have just stayed at home and watched TV and knitted. I stayed for 45 minutes, only, and left as soon as I had finished the hat I was knitting.
Afterwards, I went to the grocery store for milk for me and two bags of cat food for the stray cats. My half gallon of milk cost $1.99; the cats' food came to $19.69 with tax. I debated buying eggs, but didn't want to pay $2.49 for them. I still have three eggs left in the carton, since I didn't bake a cake to take to the knitting group (still too hot to turn on the oven). Later, when I looked through the grocery ads that came in the mail, today, I was glad I waited. Eggs will be on sale for $1.49 a dozen, effective tomorrow.
Later in the evening, I video chatted with daughter. She sent me two more doodles:
|Highlights for Monday and Tuesday
I asked her what she was singing and she said the opening songs to some of her favorite anime shows. Of course!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to take it easy
- Cousin P calling to check on me in the morning
- Video chatting with my daughter
- Emails from a friend
- Access to medical care
Wednesday's To Do List:
- Doctor's appointment to go over biopsy results
What else I accomplish tomorrow will depend a lot on the biopsy results, I think.
