|Moderna Cookies to go with the Moderna Booster!|
Today, I got my second booster shot! I received a Moderna booster since my previous vaccine shots have all been Moderna. Based on previous experiences, I knew that one of the more immediate side effects of the vaccine will be an urge to shop so, I went prepared with a list of things I wanted to buy! LOL! Light bulbs (two types, replacement bulbs for the chandeliers and for the night lights), batteries (for the flashlight and for the TV remote), and several snacks, including Maria cookies. I was very amused to see the brand name of the cookies!
I called friend A in the early afternoon to check on her. She said her fever went down later in the evening, yesterday, and she was able to go downstairs to have her dinner. She said she felt much better, today; I was glad to hear that.
I had a productive afternoon, today. I dusted my bedroom, vacuumed the bedrooms, hallway, kitchen, and my bathroom, cleaned the litter box, sorted through a small pile of mail and filed what needed to be filed (recycled the rest), and shredded another file folder of my mother's papers. I wanted to vacuum the living room and dining area, too, and was waiting for my daughter to finish working (since she uses the dining table as her work desk), but, by the time I cleaned up some Dancer throw up from behind the sofa (had to wash the bottom part of the lace curtain, too!), I ran out of steam! By then, it was 99F outside (but a bit cooler inside the house) and my daughter told me not to get too tired because I had to go for the booster shot, as well.
I had eaten leftovers from last night's dinner for my lunch, today; daughter ate leftover milkrice and chicken curry. In the evening, I had a cheese sandwich with the cup of tea that my daughter made for me. Then, it was time to go for my booster shot!
My appointment was for 7:00 p.m. I checked in and the pharmacist asked if I could wait 10 minutes for her and I said yes. While I waited, daughter went around the store with my shopping list and picked up the items on it. I was getting my booster dose when she finished the shopping. I wasn't told to wait for 15 minutes this time so, I didn't! Instead, we paid for the shopping and came home (daughter drove us home; I drove us to the pharmacy).
Daughter had leftovers (rice, salmon, fried potatoes, etc.) for her dinner. I baked two pieces of frozen battered fish fillets and cooked some frozen green peas for my dinner and I made another bowl of fresh fruit salad (an apple, a peach, an orange, and two kiwi, plus some raw cashew pieces) for dessert:
