Friday was another in a string of nice Fall days, cool in the morning, but warming up into the 70’s by late afternoon.

I had a busy lunch hour. First I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond (with my last 20% off coupon) and bought a humidifier. I bought the same exact one I had before. It was not too expensive, worked great for three years and I still had some of the demineralization cartridges it uses left. So, I simply replaced it.

Then I went to another antique shop, looking for old books. Found three likely ones. When I was paying for them, the lady asked me if I was starting a library. I laughed and explained my project idea. Both of the women behind the counter were delighted and begged me to bring in a photo when I’m done, so I promised I would.

As you know, I have dwelt a lot on losing my doctor. I decided to write her a note, thanking her for being there for me over the years. So, I did and mailed it from work.

When I pulled in the garage after work, the phone was ringing, but they hung up before I could get to the phone. So, I treated the cats and then checked the voicemail. It was my doctor! She said it was nothing urgent, she just wanted to talk to me and would I call back on Monday. I tried calling back right then, but only got the “the doctor’s office is now closed” recording. Damn!

I guess I’m not the only one who needed closure.

I changed clothes and then got started on my Friday night routine. I paid some bills online, balanced my check register and then started on lists. I got the grocery list and the ToDo list completed. It was doing the ToDo list that reminded me the Township recycling day is this Saturday (they have them four times a year).

So, I went up in the attic and wrestled that old monster TV down. I wanted to do that for years, but haven’t been physically able to. I managed to get it down without hurting myself or dropping it, so I was pleased.

It was close to 8:00 p.m. and I was hungry. So, I stopped and made dinner: tuna and peas, served over wide egg noodles. I would have taken a picture for you, but tuna and peas are NOT pretty! :P

I watched a taped TV show and then went to bed when it was finished.
