Today Amoeba went to work and I stopped at the coffee shop to see Mona. She had errands to run so Cody suggested Mona and I run off and do them together. He didn’t have to ask twice. We were a block away before he finished the word “good-bye”.
We didn’t do anything wonderfully exciting. We went to the gas station, the hardware store, the drug store, the second hand store, and the grocery store. I bought carrots, a dish basin, and some Pua d’Arco tea (medicinal tea used as an antiseptic soak). We also stopped by the gym because I am thinking of signing up for the daily water aerobics class.
Mostly what Mona and I do when we go out is giggle and laugh. Laughter is good medicine no matter what one’s ailment might be. I feel a bit better tonight because of it, but my back and shoulder still ache and deep down I am still quite lethargic. I am not motivated to do much of anything but sit and read — and sometimes even reading is a chore despite the fact that I like all three of my current books.
As for the chicken soup advice so lovingly left on my last post — I made homemade chicken soup with dumplings for dinner and I am now stuffed, which is making it even harder to move! It sure was yummy though!
