Errands and housework

After getting up from my bed at ten o’clock, I rose on my tiptoes and stretched my arms above my head, and smiled widely. I am going to start doing it every morning after getting up from my bed.

I took my morning medicine, cleaned my teeth, washed my hair in the sink, and had a proper wash. I dressed up and made coffee, and while waiting for my breakfast porridge to cool down, I did the face and neck muscle exercises.

I started doing housework; I took the sheets off my bed and washed them in the laundry with towels after replacing them. I took the blanket, pillow, and mattress to the balcony to freshen them.

Later the day my HoivaOnni worker came for a visit at one o’clock in the afternoon. For the first half an hour, we talked about stuff, and then I washed the dishes and ironed the laundry.

After the visit, we made the next appointment on next Friday at the same time.
We left at the same time, she helped me take the washed sheets to the drying room downstairs, and then take out the trash.

I went to the post box to mail a greeting card and a letter, then I went to the library to return two Doctor Who DVDs. Then I went to the social office to drop off two bills, and then I went to the health center where I made a new appointment for the doctor, because the last one would have been at quarter past ten o’clock in the morning and that was way too early. I made a new appointment at quarter to two o’clock in the afternoon.

I decided to go visit Helsinki, but I was in a bit of a bad mood because I was hungry, and I didn’t have any milk for coffee at my home, and I was running out of sugar as well. I have to drink my coffee with milk and sugar.

I called my granny on my way home, and told her that I am planning to visit her next month (here’s to hoping the gorgeous autumn colors have already presented themselves), I will go there on Monday and leave on Sunday. She said it’s alright.

Once back home, I made myself dinner, watched Doctor Who on DVD, and made a bed on the sofa because my bedclothes were still freshening themselves.

Tomorrow is a gym day, I don’t know yet if I am going to walk on the treadmill as well. I might also go visit an art museum, and I need to do housework as well.
