Monday – I was at the library. Almost as soon as I set up, I was told there would be a fire drill in 15 minutes. I told the woman who sat near me not to get too comfortable as we’d be leaving soon to the sound of a horrible alarm. We started to chat – she is working for an organization that places teachers in part time positions (students who need a few hours of special ed. support – resource room – a week). I got the information from her in case I am interested.
Later in the afternoon, a man asked me if I were a writer as he wanted someone to review, comment on and maybe revise his writing. I worked with him for at least an hour. Maybe I’ll edit his book.
While I was at the library, I kept reading the book for NEXT month’s discussion group – haven’t even started the book for Thursday’s meeting yet.
Tuesday – First stop – bring in some clothing for donation. Then I walked a few blocks uptown to get my hair cut – VERY short. I went to the pet supply store for cat litter and canned food. (I’d been giving the cats the “special” Fancy Feast, but it’s SO expensive, so back the healthier Iams. And it’s less expensive… LOL.) Then on to the bus to go to Artie’s Deli I love their chopped liver appetizer – a large scoop of the chopped liver and a salad on the side (a little too heavy on the onions, but so what!). They always put pickles and coleslaw on the table, so it’s a filling meal. I then walked to Trader Joe’s stopping along the way at an outdoor produce cart – baby carrots and celery (at great prices). I got more soup at Trader Joe, then took the bus to my appointment. Since I was carrying so much of a load, I went straight home after the appointment.
Wednesday - First stop – the dollar store: baby boxes of raisins, marinated artichoke hearts, strange cans of tuna (one has vegetables and the other some pasta mixed in), and other odds and ends. Then on to the post office to mail out a book, to the market for salmon in packages (I’m trying when I can to phase out canned foods), cat food and a can of chicken broth (lower sodium… and only 5 calories!). I had a doctor’s appointment in the afternoon and discussed my weight reduction diet with her. She asked if I were dizzy or faint or hungry on so few calories and was comfortable when I said no. She was comfortable with my diet plan and glad for my weight loss (about ½ pound a day!)
