Three Things Challenge – Sept 8

Your three things today are:
LAUGH – NIP – FIX

It has been a very productive day today. The weather G-ds decided to pardon us from the 100+ degree temperatures we have been experiencing for a few weeks. It was cool enough this morning to open the doors and windows to allow some fresh air to enter the house. I went outside and played with Annie for quite a while. I left the whole house fan on while we played. What a pleasant way to start the day. 

I knew today I needed to venture out into the world as safely as possible. My chores started at the Medical Center having my blood drawn. I arrived a little early for my appointment, but they took me right in and the tech was great. Happily, everyone was masked, and many were wearing gloves. (me included) I then went upstairs to have an x-ray of my hip. The orders were there but I had no appointment, so I had to wait. I did not sit down the entire time. I don’t feel comfortable sitting in a medical waiting room. 

After leaving the center, I went to get my other chores done.  I needed some things from Target and there is one very close to where I was. I found what I needed and added some food items to the cart also. I had some cash and thought I would, for the first time, go to Hamburger Habit to get lunch to go. The store is next to Target and I am all about getting things done quickly and efficiently. I saw a Dollar Store next to the burger joint. I laughed at myself for knowing that I would rather look at things in the dollar store than eat. I felt like this was safe as there happened to be only two other people in the entire store. I found the few items I needed including some things to fix the mess in my bathroom.

 I came home, disinfected things that were needed right away, put items in the garage for quarantine, and showered. I was exhausted physically and mentally from being out amongst people. If I were a drinking woman, I would have appreciated a nip of something strong to calm my nerves. Instead, I talked with a few people, drank a glass of ice water, and played with Annie some more.

When I finally got to making my lunch, I realized that my tuna, olive, and avocado sandwich was better than any fast food burger. I cleaned up the kitchen and took it easy for the afternoon. Then tonight I worked on my duvet covers again. I keep changing my mind about the selection of fabrics. I worked for a few hours until I realized that I was spinning. I know well enough that when that happens, I need to close the door (so Annie can’t mess with my fabrics) and leave it for tomorrow.

I took time to read blogs, write a blog, and now I shall attempt to sleep.

To all a good night.
