|Blueberries Ripening (old photo)|
There were three ripe blueberries to pick, today - my daughter picked them and we shared them with M when he was here to tend to the garden - one for her, one for me, and one for him! :)
I am continuing to feel better.
I have spent the majority of the day sitting up in bed, with my leg propped up on a pillow (with support under my knee). But, I have taken a few strolls (shuffles, actually) around the house and stood at the back door for 5 minutes to chat with M who arrived to water and tend to the garden, without any pain. On my most recent shuffle, I saw the big white rabbit nibbling on something (grass, hopefully, and not my vegetables or a flowering plant) in the backyard with a very confused garden cat watching it and probably trying to decide what kind of cat it was! LOL!
Aunt C, friend R, and neighbor T all called to check on me and I called the monks at the temple and neighbor S to let them know that I am feeling better. My daughter will take my piano lesson slot with S while I am recovering as I have not been able to sit at the piano to practice. My daughter used to take lessons with her, when she was in high school (and she's better at playing the piano than I am!), so, I know S will enjoy having her as a pupil, again. A few minutes later, S brought us a bag of pastries, crackers, and a package of frozen fried rice mix! Such caring friends.
I had a tangerine early in the morning with my first medication of the day. Daughter made us a lovely salad for lunch (mine contained lettuce, grated carrot, apple slices, and canned garbanzo beans, with bottled salad dressing), and a cheese sandwich with whole grain bread to have with my evening medication. For dinner, she is cooking teriyaki chicken, again (at my request), with rice and green beans.
Today, I am grateful for:
- My daughter continuing to take such good care of me
- Her employers for being so understanding and checking with her to see how we are both doing and telling her to take all the time she needs to tend to me
- Neighbor S dropping off a care package for us
- Phone calls from family, friends, and neighbors, and comments from blog friends
- M tending to the garden
Today's joyful activity was being able to walk around the house, a few times.
I don't have any plans for tomorrow, other than more rest and another couple of walks around the house.
How was your Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
