|Flowers at ND|
I did wonder when I looked at three blank days what would fill them. But now we are at the end of those three days and I have not been bored; they have been three good days.
I was not confined to home for three days. There was a 30% discount trip to CVS where I had a good list of items. I stopped at the library for a requested book that had come in. I practiced the organ. Jim and I made our usual Martin's Grocery trip this morning. I averaged close to 10,000 steps daily according to my Fitbit in 40-60 minutes of walking.
At home, I did some laundry, clipped ivy and dead-headed flowers, and cleaned the very dirty screens in the three season room. I played the piano. I purged old photo albums. I read lots and let my reading lead me into various Google searches. Plus I researched potential trips to Arkansas, Nova Scotia and St. Pete Beach. They may not all take place but it is fun to think about the possibilities.
I experimented with a new recipe for a cauliflower salad and made a chicken risotto dish and a rhubarb crisp.
The only longer conversation I had with anyone besides Jim was a phone chat with my sister. I did have email, text and Facebook contacts with a few other friends.
I am glad I do have regular obligations at church and with volunteer work at the libraries and with tutoring. But I am also thankful that empty days fill up with good things including blogging!
