Another bad air quality day. I woke up feeling like I was coming down with something - my sinuses were blocked, my throat was scratchy, my eyes were tearing. I had slept with the air purifier on, but, even so, I didn't feel too well, this morning. I took my inhaler, and, eventually, took an antihistamine and put both air purifiers on. Two of my friends, who don't have asthma, called to say they felt that the air was bad, themselves, ("putrid" was the word one of them used to describe it) and had scratchy throats.
I took it very easy, today. I spoke with a couple of family members and friends. Later, I practiced the piano and started to knit another scarf with a different shade of the novelty yarn. Unfortunately, the stitches slipped off the needle after I had done quite a bit of the scarf and, this yarn is such, that I can't pick up dropped stitches. So, I had to take out the whole thing and I will start, again, from the beginning, tomorrow.
Neighbor S called in the afternoon; her husband was going to the Armenian grocery store and did I need anything? She is such a nice neighbor! I asked for a packet of frozen parathas and some raisins. Later, her daughter N brought over a package of raisins; apparently, the store was out of frozen parathas. Oh, well. I was happy to have the raisins. Sometimes, when I am looking for a sweet snack, a handful of raisins satisfy that craving.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Kind neighbors
- Air purifiers and inhalers, etc.
- Phone calls from family and friends
- My yarn stash
- Being able to video chat with my daughter
Today's joyful activity was knitting.
Yesterday's prompt for the ink drawing was "bulky". My daughter drew a self portrait of herself in a bulky sweater:
Monday's To Do List will depend on how well I feel, but, I've listed the bare minimum:
- Take the trash cans to the curb
- Water the front garden
- Practice the piano
How was your Sunday? What are your plans for Monday?
