Good morning! Come on in! Sit down, have something hot to warm your hands and let’s catch up on the week.
Would you like a pair of hand warmers? It’s been a super cold November this year. The daily temperature are about 20-degree-Fahreheit below average. It’s been feeling more like January than November, with the high barely above 32-degrees-Fahrenheit (0-degrees-Celsius) and that’s at about 3 PM.
I treated myself to another breakfast this Thursday while mom went into the office. It will probably be the last one for a while. I ordered from Black Bear Diner this time, just to use the remaining $6.78 credit on my Doordash account. I had braces installed on my upper teeth on Tuesday and haven’t been able to eat much other than soft foods. I was worried I might not be able to eat this.
Surprisingly, I was able to eat this, the French Toast was like a cloud, the eggs were perfectly made, and the sausage links were just what I needed.
My upper braces was anything but easy. The lady that did my braces remarked “it was one of most complicated tie-ins she’d ever done.” I was there for a little over an hour. The most painful part was the part where she had to thread a thin steel wire through the tiny gold chain in my gum to try to pull a tooth down. I can’t fathom how I will able to take this being done each time I go to get my braces retied.
After doing a few hours of work, I decided to go run some of the errands which had accumulated the past few months. Somehow, I felt like this might be the last week I could go to these places, like I’m about to be trapped at home or something.
I went to Walmart, bought myself some hand warmers as the bag of hand warmers I bought 2 years have run out. I have been struggling to keep warm – my doctor seems to think I’m suffering from Raynaud’s Phenomenon. I also bought a couple of terracotta clay pots to repot and separate my Aloe Vera mother plant from its pups (babies).
I also got some baby blanket yarn. One of my co-workers is having a baby in March and I thought I’d crochet a baby blanket. It’ll be a good project for the 2-weeks break from work next month. It will help me feel content of being stuck at home and not constantly feel trapped. If the project fails, I can always use the blanket myself. The yarn is crazy soft.
If we were having coffee, I would invite you to come over and warm your hands by the fire. My new fireplace is finally functional and warm. I will be enjoying this thing all winter long.
I also completed shopping for gifts for the department party, which I was somehow put in charge of planning. When my manager called me to asked me to plan this party, I told him, “You know I’m possibly the worst person to be put in charge to plan a party, right?”
He laughed and told me I could do it. I certainly hope so. After making the reservation on Wednesday, the party, somehow, felt ever more real than before I made the reservation.
Finally, this week, I also reflected on the garden – the successes, failures, and areas of improvement. I had to split them into two parts as the word count for both parts combined equals to a whopping 1500 words. I don’t know about you but I don’t think I have the attention span to sit and read such a long post. In addition, I now try to write down some thoughts each Friday. This week, I have written 3 short thoughts – things that’s been on my mind of late.
