Ready for the week to start.

It's a nice thing when you are having a low sugar dip and you are smart enough to drink a glass of mandarin orange juice and very quickly feel yourself perk up again. It would be great if all things were that easily fixed. That's what I'd like in life: straight forward solutions to plainly stated problems and when you get down to it, most of life really is like that. You just have to reduce everything down to the basics and answer the core questions.

My watch band has made me break out in hives again and I had to take my watch off and have a good scratch. Except for the mandarin orange juice, I haven't had anything different to eat or drink and if that's it, I'll gladly itch. My ears are also itching and there's starting to be some eczema on them and I'll have to start using the ointment again. Orange blossoms give me terrible headaches and I wonder if that has something to do with it? We had two orange trees in our garden in California. 

I made some very good coffee this morning and I needed it because I had not quite come to my senses when I got up, which is unusual. As a rule, I practically jump out of bed.  I think the fact that I didn't do the dishes yesterday is not making me happy because I don't like to walk into a messy kitchen first thing in the morning. I am going to do them at the first opportunity I get, which will be right after I am done writing this. The coffee is bringing me to my senses and making me think happier thoughts. Douwe Egberts does rule!

The mobile phone company I bought my touch screen phone with subscription from, turns out not to be a network operator in my area. Yesterday I was in a nice conversation with a computer at customer service. We got the problem sorted out as far as we were able to and I will be contacted by a live person today. Hopefully there will be a simple solution and I will not have to return my phone. I've got the whole thing figured out so it would be a shame if I would have to.

Today is going to be a lovely day with a visitor in the morning and one in the afternoon and I have to go to the pharmacy to pick up some of my medicines. That's why I did the groceries yesterday because I knew I would not get the chance today. The weather is even going to be good, although it's only going to be 12 degrees Celsius amd no, I don't know what that is in Fahrenheit.

What an exciting day ahead. Double has been ages since I have had company except for children and grandchildren.

Enjoy your day.

Wow! Sounds like you are going to have a wonderful day.

Sorry to hear about the itchiness. Hope the pharmacist can help you.

I hate to wake up to a dirty kitchen, too. Which is why I try to ensure the dishes are done, and put away, before I hit the bed.

BTW, 12°C is about 54F. Just so you know.
