After several days of rain and grey skies, today has been sunny with clear blue skies! Such a welcome change!
I am erasing the evidence of the almsgiving, today! I moved the last few items of furniture back to their usual places and dusted the living room furniture. Then, I emptied the dishwasher and the dish drying rack and put away some of the items. Then, washed several more items that I couldn't get to, yesterday.
In the afternoon, I did three loads of laundry - one load is waiting to be folded and put away, one load is in the dryer, and one load is in the washer, as I type this. Yes, I'm using the dryer today as I want to get it all done quickly. I do have some kitchen towels air drying, however.
I emptied the waste baskets and took the kitchen trash out and took the big trash bin, yard waste recycling bin, and regular recycling bin to the curb for trash pick up, tomorrow. I also walked around the front garden and checked on things - lots of weeds are coming up after all the rain we've had!
The vet's clinic called me, today, to tell me that the blood test results have come back and they do confirm the diagnosis of hyperthyroidism. I asked them to email me the results and have forwarded it to my daughter for her review. Dancer is technically her cat and I will do what she wants in terms of treatments.
Aunt C called too. She asked me if I received the pie and I asked her what pie? Apparently, she sent a lemon meringue pie (my mother's favorite) as her contribution to the almsgiving through her neighbor, given him my address, and some money for his trouble. He apparently told her that he delivered the pie to a lady with the same skin color as my aunt! Except, I am unaware of any pie being delivered - I certainly didn't receive it! Maybe she gave him the wrong address? I've no idea who he delivered it to, but, I hope whoever received it, enjoyed it!
I also called my neighbor T - she had called me, yesterday morning, for our usual weekly phone chat, but, I had to tell her that I couldn't chat since the monks were here and I was busy. I had promised to call her today. We chatted a bit and rang off, promising to check on each other, again, later in the week.
I still have a few more items to put away; I will do what I can, later this evening, but, if I feel tired, then, it can wait until tomorrow.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A sunny day
- A working washer and dryer
- The vet's office forwarding the blood test results
- What I was able to accomplish, today, in terms of putting stuff away
- A fridge full of leftovers!
Tuesday's To Do List:
- Finish putting away stuff and erasing the evidence
