I didn't want to go to sleep, last night, but, finally, around 3:45 a.m., I felt tired and went to bed. I had double checked all the doors and windows and made sure everything was closed properly. I slept well. Daughter's text, around 9:00 a.m., wishing me a good morning and asking how everything was, woke me up. I texted back that all was well and slept for another hour or so!
It was a cloudy, overcast day, but it didn't rain. I had a relaxed morning, rejoicing in the blessing of a safe night, having a cup of tea, replying to everyone's kind comments, doing my own blog rounds, etc. The grocery circulars came in today's mail, finally, and I took a look. I really don't need anything, but, one store is having fresh pineapples for $.99 each, which is a good price. My daughter loves fresh pineapple (she doesn't like canned pineapple) and she's coming home, next weekend, so, I might buy one, or maybe even two, and keep for when she comes home.
In the afternoon, I did a little paperwork, paid a bill, and read a bit. Later, I aired out the house, walked a bit in the garden, did the dishes, watched the evening news, knitted, and cooked the salmon that I didn't get around to cooking, yesterday (kept one salmon steak in the fridge for me and froze the rest for daughter to take).
Lunch was a tuna salad sandwich. I was hungry, again, by 6:30 p.m., so I decided to have an early dinner. It turned out to be a three course dinner! Tomato soup for a starter, followed by an entree of the rest of the pork chop which I didn't eat, yesterday, after all, with green beans and the last bit of frozen corn, and the last piece of papaya for dessert. Later, I had some yogurt and almonds for a snack.
I've had a bit of a headache, most of the day, today, I think from all the tension from yesterday's excitement. Or, maybe a lack of sleep. I think I will try for an early night, today, meaning, being in bed before 1:00 a.m.!
Today, I am grateful for:
- There were no unexpected surprises when I woke up!
- Doors and windows that were closed remained closed!
- A quiet, relaxed day
- Phone calls from family and friends
- Video chatting with my daughter
Plans for tomorrow include having friend M check on the pieces of wood I put in the windows and plant the bean and pea seedlings that have sprouted!
How was your Thursday? What are your plans for tomorrow and the weekend?
