Today, I went for a fasting blood test in the morning. The drive there and back went well and the appointment went well, too, with only a 10 minute wait. My appointment was at 9:30 a.m. and I was home by 10:30 a.m. I had a cup of tea after I came home and rested a bit.
In the afternoon, aunt C called and we had a long chat. She was mostly venting about something that had happened and I provided a sympathetic ear. There might have been three additional phone calls from her during the course of the afternoon and evening! LOL. I didn't mind. To misquote John Milton, "They also serve who only stand and listen"!
Later in the evening, I took the trash bins to the curb for pick up in the morning, cleaned the litter box, did the dishes, checked the mail, and cooked a pot of rice. I had planned to make curry puffs for tonight's dinner, and even went as far as taking some of the packages of frozen puff pastry out from the freezer. Then, I saw all the leftovers in the fridge, changed my mind, and put the pastry back in the freezer (it hadn't had enough time to thaw, so it was fine to put back in the freezer).
Lunch had been salad followed by some fried rice I had made with leftover rice and sausage from the weekend. Dinner was the freshly cooked rice with leftover beef curry, green beans, beets, zucchini salad, and zucchini chutney. We finished the beef curry, green beans, and the zucchini salad, tonight. I will make the curry puffs for tomorrow's dinner.
Later in the evening, I spoke with cousin N, friend A, and with friend R.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A safe drive to and from the blood test
- Health insurance
- Phone calls with family and friends
- Weekly trash collection services
- What I was able to accomplish
Today's joyful activity was chatting with family and friends.
Plans for tomorrow include some filing and maybe dusting the living room.
How was your Monday? What are your plans for Tuesday?
