When I was planning out my activities for August, I thought I might go on a return visit to the Autry Museum on the free Tuesday. For some reason, I had it fixed in my head that the free Tuesday was on the first Tuesday of the month. I even wrote it down on my calendar and mentioned my intention to go to the museum to a friend of mine, on Monday. Tuesday morning, I woke up looking forward to going back to the museum. I decided that I would get the housework done in the morning, before it got too hot, and go to the museum in the afternoon, when being in an air conditioned space would be nice.
So, I dusted all the rooms in the morning, had a sandwich for brunch, got dressed, brought in the trash cans, collected the mail (this week's grocery ads), and drove to the museum. I approached the front desk and asked if today was the free Tuesday, only to be told that the free Tuesday was the second Tuesday of the month! Oops! I was so convinced that it was on the first Tuesday of the month that I hadn't even thought of looking it up! Oh, dear! Well, I suppose I could have spent $10 for a senior (defined as 60+, per the website) admission ticket and gone in. But, I'm a cheapskate and didn't want to spend any money to revisit the museum! So, I looked around the gift shop for a little bit (everything was very expensive) and drove myself home, again! That'll teach me to remember to check dates and times, etc., before I leave the house on my next visit to any place! At least, I got out of the house for a bit and the car got driven! I'll most probably go back, next Tuesday!
I was hungry by the time I came home, so I heated up the last of the frozen potstickers and had that with some cucumber salad and some strawberries. I considered going to the library to attend the knitting club, but, instead, I took a nap on the sofa!
Later in the evening, I watered the houseplants, watched some TV, went through the grocery ads, and video chatted with my daughter. Dinner was leftover rice, green beans, and the last of the mackerel curry.
My joyful activity for the day was going for an afternoon drive! LOL.
On Tuesday, I was grateful for:
- Getting the dusting done while it was still cool
- An afternoon drive!
- Air conditioning in the car!
- Chatting with my daughter
- Phone calls from aunt C and cousins P and V

How was your Tuesday? Have you ever got your days mixed up as I did, today? What would you have done - paid the admission and visited the museum or gone home, as I did? What are your plans for Wednesday?
