Today was one of those jam-packed days.
- Hubby Tony was gone when I woke up. I started some rice for dinner in the Instant Pot, ate breakfast, then realized it was really nice outside. I turned off the furnace, opened the deck door, and cracked a window in the bedroom to let some fresh air in. According to the weather people, after today it will be a long time before that can happen again.
- When the rice was done I carried the inner pot on the deck so the rice could cool off, then spooned it into containers and put all but one of the containers into the freezer for future use.
- After Tony returned we took a nice long walk. I started out wearing my
lightweight winter coat, but halfway through took it off and wrapped it
around my waist. The sun was shining, there were no clouds in the sky, and
the birds were singing. All in all a perfect day to be outside.
Back at home, Tony and I each went to our offices to do paperwork and
computer things. I managed to clear my backlog of emails and got caught up
on blog post reading and commenting.
- Shortly after noon I got ready to drive Tony to his big event for the day, which was cataract surgery at a nearby surgery center. After I dropped him off I went to get some lunch (and picked up a sandwich for Tony to eat after his procedure), then returned to the center and fiddled on my iPad until a nurse told me he was finished.
- Tony came out with a huge bandage over his eye, and in the car popped on a pair of dark glasses to keep the sun out. He wolfed down the sandwich, finished the cup of coffee he had brought out, and told me about his experience.
- Back in the condo I left to run a quick errand. When I returned Tony was resting the couch. He stayed there until dinner time. I pulled out leftovers, we ate, and then I cleaned up and started the dishwasher.
- Tony was expecting someone to stop by and drop off a binder for a project he's working on. When the person came they rang the door buzzer and I went downstairs to retrieve it for him.
