I was up bright and early this morning. I was awake at 7 and decided then to get up. The weather here last night was really bad, and it kept me up for some of the night. It was raining hard and we had high winds also. My neighbour texted me during the night to make sure I was ok, she does that sometimes. I think its so sweet of her.
I pottered around until 9 AM. I just had coffee, checked my email, and listened to the radio. Nothing exciting.
At 9 AM I called my mom. I was supposed to be staying at home this weekend, but when I called my mom she asked me if I’d come over, she needed to go shopping for a few items, but her COPD means she cant carry heavy bags because the weight of them does something to her lungs and then she’s not able to breathe.
I told her I’d come over and we could go together and I’d carry the bags for her. So that is what I did. We took a taxi to the local shopping centre, got what we needed and then got a taxi back to moms house. We were about an hour and a half doing the shopping.
When we got back I relaxed, and went online for a bit. Mom cooked burgers for our lunch, they were steak burgers, I had fried onions, cheese and ketchup on mine, they were delicious.
Then my aunt, moms sister called after lunch. She’d been out walking and she decided to pop in on her way back before heading back home. She stayed for about an hour, and mom and my aunt and I sat in the kitchen chatting, it was fun.
Once she left, I decided to have a nice long bubble bath, I have been pretty lax about self care this week, so I felt I owed it to myself to do a little self care. The bath was awesome, I felt great after it. I am going to read later on this evening, that is another activity I like to do for self care.
I have no plans for the rest of this evening. I’m probably just going to catch up on emails, blog reading, and then read my book, I might also watch something later on tonight or listen to a podcast.
I hope you’ve all had a great day. Whatever you did, I hope you enjoyed yourselves, stay well, and be safe!
