I woke up super early today. For no particular reason, it seems. I tried reading myself back to sleep but that didn’t seem to work. Eventually I got up. I decided to do chores that I normally would do when I got home from work. I loaded and ran the dishwasher. I stripped my bed and started the washing machine with the sheets and towels. I took out compost.
Then I left for work at the time I was supposed to. My neighbor was outside so I said good morning and she came over to hug me. She hadn’t seen me since Dad passed away. I smelled like her perfume the rest of the day.
I got to work and found that my first patient beat me into the department. He was super early. Better early than late, I guess. One thing after another was happening at work. Nothing bad, just unusual. All day.
On the way home, I called to find out if I should pick up ingredients on the way home. Yup! No problem. I found a book that I had been looking for. No line. Strange.
I got home and remembered that I had no sheets on my bed. They were still in the washer. Into the drier they went!
Someone had taken the garbage cans out, so I was grateful for that. One extra thing off the to-do list.
My daughter, who usually cooks, decided she would rather that I cook. “I don’t have anything complicated planned. Can you cook?” Yes. I can.
I was so glad that i got some chores done this morning. I was able to relax more this evening.
So far, no April’s fool jokers. But there are a couple more hours to go. I hope today doesn’t end strangely.
