"This is Anya from the anime spy x family - she's a telepath
so one can't bluff her"
Above is my daughter's drawing (based on an anime character) for Thursday (she sent it to me after I had done yesterday's blog post). Below is her drawing for today:
|Prompt: Bad Dog|
I told my daughter that her dog looked more like a cat - maybe it's a cat dressed as a bad dog for Halloween! LOL! She told me it is supposed to be a breed of dog called Shiba Inu.
Yesterday, my internet connection went down when I was video chatting with my daughter and we said our goodnights over the phone! I was so glad that I had done my blog post and written my daily email to my friend, earlier in the day!
My daughter had gone for her Covid booster shot yesterday afternoon and so far, her side effects have been fairly mild. Sore arm, of course, some chills and a low grade fever, fatigue, and a bit of a headache, but, not a migraine. We are both very grateful that her side effects are fairly mild. She did take the day off from work to rest and she said she took a nap in the afternoon (she had a disturbed night of sleep, last night, she said).
With the internet connection down, I wasn't able to play any of my usual online games and watch videos, last night! Instead, I sorted through a small stack of papers, tidied the family room a little bit, watered the houseplants, and went to bed at midnight! When I texted my daughter to say I was going to bed, early, she texted back asking if I was feeling okay? LOL. I couldn't fall asleep right away, but, I fell asleep soon after 1:00 a.m. Then, I woke up at 4:00 a.m., feeling hungry! I drank some water, but, that wasn't enough, so I ate half an apple. Then, I went back to bed and slept, again, till 10:00 a.m.!
After I got up, showered, dressed, said my morning prayers, etc., I left for my blood test appointment. My appointment was for 12:30 p.m. and this time, there was no long wait. There were only three other people in the waiting room besides myself and I was taken in on time. Afterwards, I paid the $2 for parking and came home.
I considered treating myself to something for brunch, but, I came home, instead, and ate the rest of the apple, a scrambled egg, and toast.
Then, I called the ophthalmologist's office - I had my annual check up scheduled for next week (appointment was made last year), but, I needed to reschedule the appointment because there is no one to drive me home, afterwards. I rescheduled the appointment for the fourth week in November (the week of Thanksgiving) because my daughter would be home then. I'm glad I was able to do that.
Later in the evening, M was here to tend to the garden. He watered the garden (there is a 35% chance of rain, tomorrow night, but, I'm not counting on that!) and we set down a few more pavers in the parkway:
|More Pavers in the Parkway|
There are two more pavers left and I think we will put them down, one at each end. The pavers are spaced approximately three feet apart, which gives me the option of adding more pavers in between, if I feel I need more of them. Maybe even smaller pavers (although, they are more liable to be stolen!) We shall see - it is an evolving work in progress!
Later in the evening, I chatted on the phone with Aunt C and friend R. Dinner was leftover rice, sausage, and green peas. For dessert, I had some of the peanut butter cups that M had given me when he returned the container in which I had given him turkey soup, the other week. Yum! Peanut butter cups are one of my favorite candies!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Medical insurance and access to medical care
- A safe drive to and from the clinic
- I was able to reschedule my eye appointment
- M helping with the garden
- Daughter's side effects are fairly mild
Today's joyful activity was
eating chocolates seeing the parkway landscaping progressing!
Plans for tomorrow include doing some laundry and more paperwork.
How was your Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
