I was fairly stunned when I opened the mailbox this morning and found items that are ultimately good for my health and wellbeing, for a change: A medicare drug assist plan, which will cost little and offer low prices on most generic drugs, as well as on higher priced ones. I am to receive more information in the mail soon. Uh-oh!
Eligibility for limited food assistance. No idea what that means and no information available, but every little bit helps, right? These are just notices really. As usual, it's wait and see. Still, a step up from the negative news of the past week. In a sense, good news.
Felt less depressed than I have in some time.
Set out to find new pillows and was most happy to discover that my fave store had not left the area to sell online only, but ditched the high rent district for a smaller place of their own. Off the beaten path, but not for those who like their quality and service. I am two pillows richer for the experience with two more on order. Surprisingly, the cost was only a few dollars more than the last purchase. Hopefully, I will sleep well tonight.
Good news at the market, too. Baguettes, Sourdough, and Asiago breads were on sale. The bakery manager is trying out a new sourdough recipe and gave me a loaf to review and let her know what I think. Angel food cakes and large bran muffins were on sale, as well. I controlled myself admirably.
Then, as I greeted the fresh fishmonger, he told me that lobster tails were half-price. Fresh! $5.00 each. Just in from the Caribbean. Well, any port in a storm, I always say. The appetite has been waning lately, so I splurged and bought 2 tails. Absolutely no guilt. I deserve the treat.
The car windshield was in need of a Rain-X treatment for a year. It's been put off way too long, so while the temperature was warm, I made the executive decision to stop for that purchase, too. My hands being useless as I fumbled trying to get the hood up, a passerby asked if I could use some help. Before I could answer, he had popped the hood and was back in his car waving 'good-bye'.
Who was that masked man? I wanted to thank him…It's good to note that nice people still populate the earth, though sightings are sometimes rare.
After treating the windshield, I filled the washer reservoir with new fluid, as well. Noticed I need new wiper blades too, but since I can't install them anymore, that's a chore for another time.
At home, fresh sheets are on the bed (along with the new pillows) and looking very inviting, indeed. Now, if I may have a few more days like this, please. It does a body and mind good.
And so it goes.
