Wednesday, March 22, 2023:  An ideal day of productivity and happiness / INR too low, however

            My change in attitude and emotions from yesterday began when I woke up, went to the computer room, pulled up the blinds and saw that my trash bin was still standing at the street and, not only the one, but the re-cycling bin was standing beside it, too . . . AND the pile of tree branches had been removed from the driveway.  It brought on a flood of tears – tears of appreciation for the attention, as well as the help!!!  I made my way to the front room to tape up the “Thank You” sign.
            I was a new person – I was so energetic, optimistic and happy. 
            At 11:00 I had my finger pricked by Cora Lee.  EEK, it was very low, 1.6, which means “too thick.”  There was no change in my eating, but when I got home, I had an idea – I’ve been drinking my chocolate protein drink most mornings as my breakfast. I got my magnifying glass to look at the listed vitamins on the carton – vitamin K 1, 30mcg 25%.   hmmmm.  So I’ll not drink another between tomorrow and 2-weeks, when I return to be checked again and see if there is a change.
            I went straight home very eager to get to work on my BOOK.  I could feel the excitement and creative juices surging through my body!  It was great fun again, and got a lot done!
                                                                                                                                                            I brought the trash bins back to their place on the side of the house.  I couldn’t tell whether or not the branches had been brought to the back  . . . maybe they were put in a truck.

            I emptied the dishwasher, folded the clean clothes, tidied areas that I’ve ignored.  It was a very good day.  I allowed myself some time to watch a couple episodes of “Good Morning Call.”  I think it’s a television series.  I am curious where it’s headed.

            I continued with my BOOK pages until late.  I’m encouraged!!!

            Hinmans are looking for input on a possible Swiss Senior Couples reunion because Pres. Peterson will not be providing his house –he is getting married!  For heaven’s sake!

            I watched “Secrets of the Dead” a weekly program of historical subject matter – tonight was the exploration of Ferdinand Magellan.  It surely is good!  He died before realizing he had found the Spice Islands, the route to going “around the world.”  Sebastian Elcano actually completed the trip when Magellan died, only 18 survivors with 25 tons of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg (200 men died, 3 ships lost) – journals kept by the men proved Earth to be round.

            Friday Stephanie, Rob, Jared and Sandra will be off for England''s Cotswold and Wales, the Harry Potter tour, including “The Cursed Child 1 and 2.”   ...for a week

Tuesday, March 21, 2023:    trash bin to street, laundry washed & dried/ slides scanned by Linda

            Mosiah 20 begins the adventure with Alma’s converts running, Noah is killed and his wicked priests leave their wives behind, Limhi takes Noah’s place as King and takes an oath to pay taxes to Lamanites to be allowed to live in their land . . . so much is going on.
            At 11:30 I heated up the last of the chowder and went downstairs to eat, watch BYU SportsNation and wash the 2nd load of laundry.  BYU Sports isn’t as interesting just now, between sports, so I left them and went to the new K-drama, “Good Morning Call.” The cute young girl is immature but that usually means we’ll watch her mature a little each episode. I paused to gather the waste baskets to combine and take to the outside bin and roll it out to the street for tomorrow’s pick up.  What a silly sense of accomplishment I got!  I tidied up the yard from yesterday’s wind.  I noticed that the many day lilies have green starts poking through the earth.  It is the first day of spring, isn’t it?  I should have taken the recycling bin out, too, but I had expended my energy and returned to finish the last of the episode.
            At 4:30 Linda called to say she was home and ready for my slides.  I went right over and left 16 slides with her then drove up to Smith’s for a couple of things.  Rather than go straight home, I went to Walmart to deposit the check from IHC and pick up my refill at the pharmacy.  I didn’t go anywhere else in the store – just left for home, first, stopping for the slides.  Back in the house, I checked the prints on my email – oh, I’m so happy to have them.  I transferred them to my computer.  I’ll try to get them placed on appropriate pages tomorrow.  It was dark, and I was out of motivation to work.  I did get the March pages into plastic sheets and into the 2023 album, though.
            Tonight was the Relief Society social..I was intending to attend until today, and I couldn’t find an ounce of interest.  If this book gets put together, it will be a miracle – and, believe me, I pray for a miracle everyday.
