It poured with rain, Wednesday night, and it rained most of the day on Thursday, too! I had a blood test scheduled at 12:30 p.m. and drove through flooded roads and intersections to get to the clinic. But, the wait to be seen to was fairly short and the blood tests were done without any fuss by a very friendly and cheerful technician.
Afterwards, daughter and I went to drop off some gifts at a friend's house. Daughter crocheted this amigurumi Spiderman, with yarn in our stash, as a gift for her friend:

We texted our friends before we left the house; I stayed in the car while daughter dropped off their gifts and picked up their gifts to us: a box of chocolates, some homemade zucchini bread, meringues (the friend who made them had been a pastry chef before the restaurant he worked in closed due to Covid) and a container of berry coulis to go with the meringues:

Daughter also put together a video of us making the semolina and cashew cake that is known as Love Cake in Sri Lanka, if anyone is interested:
I'm a YouTube star! LOL.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The rain we've received
- Being able to get the blood tests done
- A safe drive there and back
- Exchanging gifts with friends
- Daughter's help with so many things
Today's joyful activity was watching the video daughter did! Oh, and eating meringues! LOL.
Plans for tomorrow include picking up the groceries, tidying the house a bit, and getting ready to celebrate New Year's Eve at home with my daughter!
How was your Thursday? What are your plans for New Year's Eve?
