I don't want to jinx it, but, I woke up feeling much better, today. All that sleeping, yesterday, probably helped.
I took it easy in the morning, however, and didn't do anything much as I didn't feel very energetic. I thought I might write out my holiday greetings cards, but, I didn't. Instead, I read a bit and knitted a bit.
In the afternoon, however, I washed the dishes that had been accumulating in the sink for the past few days! Most of it were washed in the dishwasher, but, I washed my china teacups and saucers by hand. I also cleaned out the fridge, just a little bit. There were some dishes leftover from the almsgiving that I didn't freeze, thinking I'll eat them during the week, but, I didn't feel like eating them when I got sick. So, I tossed them. I hate to waste food, but, I don't want to get food poisoning, either! Then, I took the kitchen trash out to the big trash bin and took the big trash bin and yard waste bin to the curb for pick up in the morning. By that time, I was feeling tired and I considered not taking the trash cans out, but, the next trash collection day falls on Christmas Eve and, although it is a regular working day for the city trash collections services, I wasn't sure if there might be route and schedule changes. I started the car, too, for a few minutes, but it needs to be driven a bit, tomorrow.
Brunch had been an egg salad sandwich with some grapes as an afternoon snack. I had wanted milkrice and spicy sauteed onions (seeni sambol) in the afternoon, but, by the time I did the dishes, etc., I was too tired to cook (thus the grapes for a snack). Later, however, after tea, I went ahead and made the milkrice and the onion sambol for dinner. Milkrice is usually eaten for breakfast, but, it was just what I wanted! There's enough leftover for breakfast, tomorrow.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Feeling better
- Cough syrup
- A working dishwasher
- Weekly trash pick up services
- This cuddly kitten:
How was your Monday? What are your plans for Tuesday?
