Yesterday (Tuesday) morning, I drove my daughter to get her first dose of the Covid-19 vaccination. She qualified to receive the vaccine as an employee of the University of California system and had already received a notification from her health care provider to call for an appointment. Unfortunately, her health care provider is in northern California, so, she had to look for a vaccine appointment down here, instead. She, too, had to go to an adjoining city (but, still within Los Angeles County) to get her vaccination. It required taking three freeways, but, it only took about 30 minutes of driving to get there. I drove her there and back and went into the pharmacy with her to wait while she had her vaccination and waited for the required 15 minutes. I experienced no desire to go shopping while I was in the pharmacy, this time, so, I fully believe that the urge to shop that I had when I went for my first dose was definitely a side effect! Daughter, however, didn't seem to experience that particular side effect! She received the Pfizer vaccine and felt a tingling in her arm while we were still in the pharmacy; we notified the pharmacist, who said that it was a side effect, although not a common side effect. But, since there was no redness or rash, it was not something to be concerned about.
After we came home, we had some of the curry puffs I had made for brunch. Daughter had taken the day off from work, so she could rest after her vaccination. She felt soreness in her arm, some fatigue, and a mild headache. But, she claimed she didn't feel the need for a Tylenol. However, she took a nap in the afternoon.
I did a load of laundry while she napped and read. After daughter had woken from her nap, I practiced the piano. I was to have my piano lesson, yesterday evening, but, S called and asked if we could reschedule it for today, instead, and I was happy to do so.
We spent a quiet, relaxed evening. Daughter had some soup for dinner; I had a tortilla with keema curry.
Dancer decided to play a game of hide and seek! Where is Dancer? Is he hiding? Can you find Dancer?
Daughter said she felt well, other than a sore arm, this morning, and worked. She did develop a slight headache towards evening, but, didn't want to take anything for it. She did decide not to take her online exercise class, this evening. Her second dose is scheduled towards the end of April.
Remember the medication refill I had ordered on Monday? On Monday evening, I had received an email confirmation of the order, giving the date of delivery (Thursday), etc. Well, Tuesday night, I received an email notification that the order and delivery had been canceled! What? It was too late to call the pharmacy, last night, so, I called them the first thing, this morning! I spoke to the same pharmacist I had spoken with on Monday and she assured me that the order went through, yesterday! So, I was very confused! Shouldn't I have received an email saying my order has been filled? That is what they've done in the past (except one other time, when there was another order canceled notification when it had been shipped!) Anyway, I received my medication in the mail, today, a day earlier than promised, so, all is well!
Yesterday had been a very windy day. Today, it was calm and still in the morning, but, the winds have picked up in the afternoon. Mostly sunny with a high of 75F according to the weather forecast (tomorrow, in contrast, will be cloudy with a high of 60F, according to the same weather forecast). I walked in the driveway for 15 minutes.
My plans for today include watering the indoor plants since I didn't do that, yesterday, and my piano lesson in the evening.
I put mung beans to soak, last night, and boiled them this morning for brunch. Dinner will be leftovers.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter receiving her first vaccination dose
- Daughter having only mild side effects
- The car started and had a good run
- My medication was delivered to me
- The winds didn't cause any damage
My joyful activities include spending time in the garden and taking an afternoon nap!
How is your day coming along?
