Books, books, lovely books

Last night I had another dream about the summer cottage. When I was stirring in my bed, I threw my elbow over my eyes and tried to prevent myself from falling asleep, but soon I had to get up.

I took my morning medicine, drank coffee, had a wash and dressed up.

I took a bus to Helsinki, then a subway to Grass Cove, and walked to Lapland Spring.

My mother was there for a short time, I gave her one of the quilt squares I had knitted.
Later she left. I ate the treats they served, wrote into my diary, and knitted. I gave Mella the Jerry Spinelli book Stargirl to read.

Later the day I left, and once I was back home, my blood sugar was so low that I started having delusions.

I took my evening medicine an hour early in order to calm myself, and then I ate a bowl of soup to balance out my blood sugar.

I started feeling so sleepy that I was about to fall asleep on my feet. I went to fetch my nighties from the drying room, and then I took a hot shower.

Now that I think about it, today was such a good day but I was in an extremely bad mood. I guess it’s either PMS or low blood sugar.
Nevertheless, I am going to start paying more attention to my nutrition, and at least try to eat three meals a day. The only things stopping me are that I don’t have a regular daily routine, and I cannot always afford proper healthy food. And neither do I want to buy only those groceries that are in discount.

Tomorrow I will start doing the weekly housecleaning again. I will replace the towels and take the bed sheets off my bed, and take the mattress, blanket and pillow to be aired.
My HoivaOnni worker will visit me at half past one o’clock in the afternoon, I will wash the dishes and iron the laundry while she’s visiting.
Then I will go see my mother.
As for the rest of the day, I will probably do housework.
