Yesterday, when Cuz was loading up more things at the house, the UPS man brought a package. He was sorry to hear I’d moved. He told her he’d miss the Christmas candy. I always gave him something since I pretty much kept him on the route. He was good. If something was heavy, he’d ring the doorbell and bring it in for me. Cuz told him he could stop by and see me but he said UPS wouldn’t allow it. His route doesn’t come this far north.
Today’s been pretty quiet. When I opened the fridge before breakfast, I was surprised to see several containers of So Delicious coconut milk yogurt. I was also surprised at how sweet the raspberry is. This afternoon, Cuz went to Walmart and got a lemon and a lime so I can cut the sweet. I don’t know what the other flavor is. She said she stopped by the ice cream section and saw that there’s a new flavor. She said it was a mixed berry. I looked it up and it’s Oregon Mixed Berry. Sounds good.
The air purifier has been running since last night. I put it on Auto which will switch it on and off according to the air quality. It started out at 4, then went to 3, up to 7 and now it’s back to 4. When DS1 comes, I’ll have him set up the phone again. Right now, it doesn’t work because we aren’t out on the mountain where the WiFi is that it would recognize.
I’m so sore from coughing, I took half a pain pill this afternoon. I hated to do it since that just leaves me with one whole one but too much is too much. It eased me for a couple of hours and that helped but now the pain is back.
Sometimes I wish I didn’t have notifications enabled. A newsflash came through about the earthquake in Italy. It puts my situation in perspective as not the worst in the world. I pray God will have mercy on those people.
While Cuz was out, she picked up some Amy’s meals for me. I had the Brown Rice, Black-Eyed Peas & Veggies Bowl for supper but I couldn’t eat it all. However, I did have an ice cream cone after that and some popcorn popped to order without salt (via my CIL). Eating like that is bound to put some lubs on me.
I’ve taken the plunge and signed up for satellite Internet. About anything would be better than what I’m on right now. I just checked the speed and it struggled to get to 0.47 Mbps download, 0.23 Mbps upload. Garbage! Sure, it’s cheaper but I’m not paying for that. Being able to be connected to friends and family will be worth the extra cost.
As usual, it’s getting late. I really need to start trying to go to bed earlier but staying up (hopefully) past coughing time. That doesn’t happen often.
