|Friday's Garden Harvest
Last night was a good night. I was able to sleep, pain free, all night and well into the morning! What a blessing! I was ready for bed by 11:00 p.m. and asleep a little after 11:30 p.m. I woke up once when my daughter was going to sleep around 1:00 a.m. and I remember asking for a couple of crackers which I ate. Then, I slept until the alarm went off at 6:00 a.m. to take my medication - another couple of crackers with the pill and I slept again until after 10:00 a.m.
I had my lab work appointment scheduled for 1:15 p.m., so daughter took a couple of hours off in the afternoon to take me. The waiting room was full and lots of people were complaining that they had been waiting longer than their appointed times. I had to wait 45 minutes, myself, before I was called in at 2:00 p.m., but, I was fine with that. I wasn't in any pain and I didn't want to reschedule the appointment. The tests didn't take too long and I was home by 3:00 p.m. It cost $3.00 to park at the clinic, today (based on how long you were parked).
It was a sunny and breezy day, with the temperature in the low to mid 70s (72F at 1:00 p.m. and 75F at 3:00 p.m.). I was comfortable in a short-sleeved blouse and didn't need to wear a coat or a jacket. However, I carried a cardigan with me because I know that the waiting room can be cold and I had it on while I waited.
Daughter made us both a salad for lunch after we got home and, later, because I was still feeling a little hungry, she warmed up some squash soup that we had bought from the grocery store. A little too sweet for my liking, but, it was good. She cooked a chicken curry, last night, for dinner, along with curried green beans and rice, served with dhal (lentils) from the freezer and peach chutney, as well. We will have leftovers from that for our dinner, tonight.
M stopped by in late afternoon/early evening, to prop up the peach tree and water the garden for me. He picked the carrots we had planted because they were starting to bolt!
