Today they were testing the fire alarms in my building from 9 AM until 1 PM, and that meant I had to get out of the house before then, as our fire alarms are absolutely deafening, not to mention sounding horrible. So I had four hours to fill.
It was rainy and cool today, but fortunately not so heavily that I needed an umbrella, as it is difficult for me to manage both my walker and an umbrella. First I took myself out for breakfast. Then I headed for Sky Nursery, where I took about 200 photos and replenished my stock of flower photos. There I saw this wonderful plaque made of wooden leaves - I love the color and the detail.
Next I went to the Shoreline Library to return a book and find some good new ones. Then it was time to go to Trader Joe's, where I bought two packages of their spinach and chive fettuccine that'd I'd found the week before and really enjoyed.
Last trip was to the pharmacy, where I picked up prescriptions and got my annual flu shot. They were recommending a course of three hepatitis shots, but I want to look into that some more. Apparently it's strongly recommended for seniors.
So a lot accomplished, but I was glad to get home and Minkelina was glad to have me here. And I have no commitments until tutoring on Saturday, so some relaxation time is on the way.
