|Japanese-Style Chicken Curry|
It was cloudy all morning, today, and then, it started to drizzle in the afternoon! It didn't rain hard, but, the drizzle lasted for about a couple of hours More water for the garden!
I had a red, slightly swollen, itchy area, about 1.5 inches wide and 2.5 inches long, on my right forearm, just near the inner elbow, this morning. I didn't know if it was a bug bite or an allergic reaction to something! Had I been decluttering in the garage, this morning, I might have suspected an insect bite, but, I hadn't been in the garage or even in the garden! I applied some cortisone cream to it and, at daughter's insistence, took an antihistamine, as well. Eventually, the itchiness and redness went away. But, I still feel that that particular area in my arm is still a bit puffy.
I took it easy and rested in the afternoon. But, later, I did two loads of laundry, ran the dishwasher, and cleaned the kitchen, scrubbing under the stove burners, cleaning the fridge door handles, and some of the cabinet door fronts.
Brunch had been assorted leftovers - daughter ate rice, the last piece of salmon, and broccoli; I ate chicken curry and a tortilla. For dinner, daughter cooked a Japanese-style chicken curry and rice. The Japanese curry is a bit sweet and I am not used to curry being sweet! It is an acquired taste, I guess.
Today, I am grateful for:
- More rain for the garden
- The cortisone cream and antihistamine helping with the itchy red area on my arm
- Daughter cooking dinner
- Working appliances
- Fresh oranges from the garden
Today's joyful activity was relaxing and watching videos online.
Plans for tomorrow include taking down the living room drapes, washing them, inserting new sliders into the transverse drapery rods, and hanging the drapes again. Provided they don't end up in shreds! One is already starting to tear!
