The weather forecast said 98F, but, it felt hotter! It went up to 90F inside the house, in the afternoon, and I thought of going to the bedroom and turning on the room air conditioner, but, I hate being cooped up inside the room, so I didn't.
I did a little sewing in the afternoon. I shortened the underskirt of my daughter's friend's dress and re-pinned the hem of the overskirts because she had wanted them a bit shorter than I had pinned them, earlier. But, it was very hot in the dining room, even with the stand fan blowing on me, so I didn't start sewing the skirts. I am very glad I didn't, because, later in the evening, my daughter texted me to say that her friend is still deciding on the shoes and she now thinks her shoes will have a higher heel than the pair she wore when she came to fit on the dress! So, I am putting off sewing the dress until she decides on her shoes and then, I might have to have her try on the dress again and redo the measurements! I'm so glad I procrastinated on sewing this dress, because had I hemmed it and cut off the extra, the dress might have been too short with the shoes she's now planning to wear!
I didn't go for a walk, today, either, but I took the car for a short drive in the evening, because it hadn't been driven since Monday. I might have driven it to the fast food place for an order of chicken nuggets, but, I am not admitting to anything! Lunch was a very healthy salad of lettuce, zucchini, apples, and raw cashews. Apples for dessert.
Today, I was thinking about the last four years. It was September 1, 2015 when I went for the biopsy and the diagnosis came a few days later, followed by the lumpectomy in early October. It's been four years. Back then, I was too afraid to plan too far into the future. I felt I could plan for six months in the future, maybe even up to a year. But, anything beyond that? I didn't dare! That was tempting fate! Every day of the past four years has felt like a blessing! A bonus! Next week, I will have another blood test and a follow-up appointment with the oncologist to go over the results. These check ups are scheduled every three months and are another blessing.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The past four years, every day has been a gift
- Regular check ups
- Health insurance to pay for it all
- All the benefits of modern medicine
- Chatting with my daughter
Tomorrow is supposed to be a slightly cooler day. A high of 92F instead of 98F. I am not sure if it will be that noticeable a difference, but, we shall see. I have planned to do some sewing, if it isn't too hot!
How was your Saturday? What are your plans for Sunday?
