Resting on Monday

I felt tired and sleepy by 12:30 a.m., last night, but, by the time I cleaned the litter box, said my nightly prayers and blessed the house (I go around from room to room, chanting a blessing and sprinkling blessed water; it's a nightly ritual), etc., it was around 1:30 a.m. when I went to bed.  I got up once, around 6:30 a.m., and, again, at 9:30 a.m., but I let myself sleep in, till noon, because I knew I needed the rest.  I decided that Monday would be a day of rest.

In the afternoon, the doctor's office called to confirm tomorrow's appointment.  After that, I drove to the library to return the one book I couldn't renew online (it had a hold placed on it).  I didn't borrow any new books because I still haven't finished reading the other books I borrowed!

After I came home, I worked my way down my To Do list, until it was all done, with little breaks in between. It was a lovely, October fall day, southern California style, with an afternoon high of 95F!  My kind of weather!  LOL!

Friend R called in the evening to check on me and to tell me how much she enjoyed herself at the prayer gathering.  She thanked me and I told her it was I who should thank her for all help!

Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to sleep in
- A productive afternoon and evening
- A safe drive to the library and back
- Friend R's phone call
- Chatting with my daughter

Today's joyful activities were sleeping in and watering the garden.

How was your Monday?  What are your plans for Tuesday?


  1. I'm having an easy day today. Probably a reaction to all the recent stress!

    I hope your doctor's appointment goes well for you. I'll keep my finger crossed and say a little prayer. xx

    1. Glad you are taking it easy, today, Eileen.

      Thank you. The appointment went well. She was concerned about a couple of my blood test results and wants me to do a follow up blood test. Depending on the results of that, she will recommend a few changes to my medications. I have to be fasting for that, so, I'll do it, tomorrow.

  2. A relaxed day where you also got everything done on your to do list. Sounds just right. Good luck tomorrow with your appointment.

    1. Thank you, Live and Learn. Doctor's appointment went well and I got the flu shot. :)

    2. Good to hear your appointment went well. I got my flu shot a couple of weeks ago when I got my allergy shot. I think my whole family has had them now.

    3. That's good. I need to remind my daughter to go and get hers!

  3. I'm not surprised you were so tired after all your hard work. I'm glad you took the time to rest up. X

    1. Thank you, Jules. It's a reminder that I need to pace myself!
      I'm getting older and tiring more quickly!
