Blueberry pies

I spent the entire yesterday sleeping, even if I had made plans; I was supposed to do the rest of the housework, that is, hoover the floor, take out the recycling, and tidy up the bathroom, and also book an appointment with my usual hairdresser, and go visit NiceHearts.
I simply didn’t feel like getting up, now that I had no milk for my coffee at home.
I only got up to take a pee, and noticed that I had got my period.
I got up in the evening to take my meds, and I noticed that I had forgotten to take my meds in the morning. Nevertheless, I didn’t feel any different.

I had some very pleasant dreams.
This morning I woke up to a tremendous coughing fit, I guess I am still not healthy. If this persists, I have to go visit the health center as soon as possible, it might be something worse than the usual flu, such as bronchitis or severe allergy.

I checked the balance of my bank account online, I had received the usual weekly allowance.
I renewed my Netflix subscription, and ordered a hat from; a woollen beanie with kitty ears in the asexual pride flag colors. I am going to put some pins and badges into it.
I would have loved to order some sweet stuff from beautiful perfect Archia’s own shop, but all my favorite products were sold out.

I got up, took my morning medicine, freshened up, and put on clothes.
I called my mother and told her that I am coming over, she said it’s alright.

I went to the shopping mall and visited the supermarket to buy a bar of Fazer chocolate. It tasted like nothing at all, I realized that I am at that point of my flu bout when I have lost my sense of smell and taste.

It was very cloudy and chilly outside, the gorgeous autumn colors are already showing themselves.

I travelled to my parents’ home. Both mom and dad were there.

I was in a bad mood because my delusions were bothering me worse than usual. I felt like cursing and yelling at everyone, and I also felt a bit drowsy and woozy and “unreal”. I guess it was because of my low blood sugar, menstruation hormones, and the fact that I didn’t take my morning medicine yesterday.

Mom gave me 40 euros and this gorgeous paper journal she had bought for me during her journey in the USA. I think it’s bought from Barnes & Noble, we don’t have those in Finland.
I also found the Hello Kitty plushie keyring I had thought I had lost, it was on the table in my old room.

I ate cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, and salmiakki- chocolate waffles, I also made a cup of coffee.

I weighed myself on my mother’s bathroom scale, I have lost about three kilogrammes of my weight. I know it is because of my long- lasting flu bout, I haven’t had much appetite.

Later the day I travelled back to Hometown and went to Quarry City to visit Pinky, I paid her the debt for buying me a meal and a can of milk.

I went to the same supermarket in the shopping mall, and bought:
2 big packages of toilet paper
2 big packages of household paper
5 boxes of Kleenexes
4 packages of pocket- sized tissue packages
(I was in a desperate need of tissues since I blow my nose a lot these days)
2 pump action bottles of hand disinfectant
1 big can of milk

It took me a while to drag these items to the cashier line, but fortunately I had enough money to pay for them all. And besides, I would receive more money tomorrow.
I dragged the purchases home, put everything to their rightful places, blew my nose a lot, made a cup of coffee, and then I was off again.

I took out the biological waste, and took the toilet paper packages and my new paper journal downstairs to my storage unit.

I travelled to Walnut Hill, and went to the Late Winds youth group.
Today we had this music rating group where each one chose two songs, they were played on, and then we rated them.
I chose Eleventeen by Kimya Dawson, and Scum of the Earth by Rob Zombie. They got some pretty good ratings.

After the group, I travelled to Hometown.
I went back home, did some random odd jobs, and then I left again.
I took the boxes of household paper to the downstairs storage unit, and then I went to visit the shopping mall.
I just hung out, checking out the selection of my favorite shops. I noticed that the stationery shop has some cute new notebooks, but they didn’t have the cute bat- shaped plushie keyrings anymore, but the stationery shop in downtown Helsinki might have them. I also noticed that those small blueberry pies were in discount at the supermarket; I bought four of them.
Here’s to hoping I won’t be addicted to them, I have been eating them a lot these days.
I have been thinking of giving up on eating random treats altogether, they don’t satisfy me at all. I would lose weight and save money and improve my mental and physical health.

Once back home, I hoovered the floor and recharged my smartphone.
I also took a shower, and washed my face and hair, and put cortisone lotion on my rash. I should take showers more often.

I decided to go to bed early, I had nothing special to do. I took my evening medicine, and took my laptop and smartphone along to bed.

I didn’t get much sleep at first, I was too busy writing and knitting.
Soon I decided to turn off my laptop, put away my smartphone, turn off the lights, lay my head on the pillow, and close my eyes.

Tomorrow I will go to the health center as early as possible, to talk about my long- lasting flu and what is causing it. Then I will go to NiceHearts to spend time, and I also have to call my hairdresser to book an appointment for a haircut.
In the evening I will go visit my mother, she will give me the monthly allowance. Then I will go visit the Pole City library, I will pay for the lost DVD and take part in the novel reading & knitting group. At some part of the day, I will go shopping for groceries.
