Cloudy and cool, today. The daytime high was 68F although the forecast had called for 71F.
I woke up with blocked sinuses and a headache from that due to the weather. I took two Tylenols, but, they didn't do anything until I took an antihistamine my doctor has prescribed, some time ago. That and resting for awhile helped.
I made a pot of tomato soup for brunch, today, with the last of the garden tomatoes and part of a bell pepper (as well as some carrots, onions, and garlic I had in the fridge). My daughter asked for grilled cheese sandwiches to go with the tomato soup, so I made one for her and half a sandwich for me.
I took a small bowl of the soup over to neighbor S to try; we chatted for a bit and she played the piano for me! We are going to wait until next month to start my piano lessons as S wants a short break from teaching. I think that will suit me well. I have plenty of pieces from previous lessons to practice on my own.
I called neighbor T, too, to offer her some tomato soup, but, she declined saying tomatoes don't agree with her stomach. I will have to remember that for the future.
I didn't vacuum, today, because of my headache. I will vacuum tomorrow, instead.
I cooked a pot of rice and a lentil curry for dinner, to have with leftover mackerel curry, moringa curry, and okra.
Later, I chatted with friend R.
A certain Bun Bun was also spotted in the backyard, enjoying some of the cat food kibbles, so I know that he is well and alive! I had removed one of the pieces of cardboard blocking the gap between the gate and the wall because the cats were constantly knocking it down - I guess Bun Bun found the opening!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Tomatoes from the garden
- Chats with friends and neighbors
- A relaxed day
Today's joyful activity was chatting with S and listening to her play the piano.
Plans for tomorrow include going for my blood test, M tending to the garden (depends on if it will rain - the forecast calls for scattered showers), vacuuming, and contacting the furnace installers to see if they notified the building inspector.
