Today was a busy day. I had to go get the blood work done that I was supposed to get done before my annual wellness visit. I had to be on fasting so I wanted to go as early as humanly possible even though I am hardly an early bird by nature.
I got there in a timely manner and went right in to provide my three vials of blood. It took a couple pricks, but I managed to not faint.
I was a bit distressed that when I went into the bathroom the sink was covered with plastic and the toilet tank was wrapped in caution tape. This is exactly the condition it was in from last year. I decided I would definitely look for an alternative lab next year.
I rushed home to get my coffee started, noting as I left that the waiting room was now standing room only.
I signed up for a class at a local quilt shop. I signed up a few days ago and the shop owner said, "Oh, I went to high school with an Olga. Olga XXXX." Today she told me that the next day she had a friend request from Olga XXXX, now in
California, on Facebook--had not heard from her since high school,which had to have been at least thirty years ago. I said I was glad I could facilitate the reconnection!
We made these wallets--
Every one's was different of course. It took almost three hours to complete, but we had to share cutting space and one iron. The picture is not so clear, but one side has credit card slots and the other side has a pocket for bills and a zippered compartment for change.
After that class, I rushed to the book discussion group I joined. We are discussing a collection of essays on aging and spirituality. It is a lively and engaging group.
I still need to fit in a little yoga time and maybe some writing time as well, but right now I think I maybe better concentrate on getting something to eat.
