I've had a fairly quiet day, today. I haven't experienced any pain from the tooth extraction; if anything, my arm feels more sore from the flu shot than my mouth feels from the extraction! I didn't have to take any more pain medications, today. Even so, I took it easy and watched TV, read blogs, played some online solitaire, etc., all day, pausing, occasionally, to practice the piano, water the houseplants, clean the litter box, collect today's mail, and take two bags of papers, etc., to the recycling bin.
I had a cup of lukewarm tea when I woke up, followed by a bowl of tomato soup for breakfast, the last of the stew that neighbor S had given me (thinned down with some water) for lunch, and more tomato soup with two slices of buttered bread for dinner. What I really wanted for dinner was milk rice, but, I felt too lazy to cook it and the onion relish I like to eat with it; I might cook some, tomorrow, though. I resisted the temptation of having more ice cream, today, but, I had a cup of iced coffee in the evening, instead of tea.
Friend M tended to the garden in the evening. He brought me a few more plants to add to my collection, including a jacaranda seedling and a Boston ivy cutting. Yay, more plants for the garden!
Some of you commented that you were able to buy disposable face masks online; thank you for that information. I checked it out and informed my daughter; we have ordered some masks and they will be delivered, some to me and some to her, in a few days.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Not experiencing any pain from the tooth extraction
- For helpful blog readers
- Being able to order some disposable masks
- M bringing me more plants for the garden
- A working blender (to puree my soup)
Today's joyful activity was video chatting with my daughter.
I don't have any firm plans for tomorrow. Another quiet, relaxed day, I think, with maybe a short car ride.
How was your Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
