Daisy


It's been a good week. My Friday ended with a nomination award from a co-worker who witnessed me helping an African-American man in the hospital pharmacy last March. He did not have enough money for his co-pay. I helped him pay for his prescription without him asking. My boss and a couple of co-nurses saw me receiving this award. I guess I made more than one person happy from this act. I, for one, am so happy I was in the pharmacy at the right time. This is the 5th time I have been nominated for the DAISY award so it is a big deal for me. 

I am a rookie gardener. So I am proud of the little successes in my mini garden. Look at my future eggplant, tomato, and a few strawberries. The strawberries are small and sweet.

My grandson often makes me laugh. At 14 months, he is riding this tricycle for the first time and is having such a great time.

We only have 18 COVID patients in the hospital. That is good.

Have a good day you all.

Ten Things of Thankful

  1. Congratulations on your Daisy Award, and thank you for all you do for patients.
    Your garden looks great. My strawberries are blooming, and I have some green berries, but no red ones like you do. I'm still waiting on tomatoes, too, but I do have some flower buds. I haven't ever grown eggplant.
    Fourteen months seems young to be able to ride a tricycle. Looks like he's having a blast!

  2. From my past experiences of picking and eating strawberries, the little ones are the sweetest ones of all!
    I love watching children concentrate so hard on learning how to do something new. I think the tongue is useful for more than just helping us be able to taste.😀
    What a special award to give and to receive. Congratulations.

A Bright Week

Hello, hello. It's been a busy, pleasant week. I have many things to be grateful for.
My indoor planter has arrived. I am so ready with my grow lights and makeshift trellis. Next week, I hope I receive my seedlings. This is my first indoor vegetable gardening with a promise of 36 plants! I will grow lettuce, tomatoes, kales, cucumbers, and other veggies with this. Wish me luck.

Paul and I have not dined out in a restaurant for months. We love hotpot so we're doing it on our own. We also have not done any camping. Here is our version of "eating out" with makeshift "campfire and have the benefit of real bathrooms, electric power, and fresh seafood (from the grocery store). Some of the vegetables are from my gardening. And we could drink as much wine as we want last night as we were not driving. We enjoyed this eating out 2020 style. We will do it again.
I helped put together a simple send off to my co-nurse at work. She worked in our hospital for 38 years. She was an…

Happy Independence Day, USA

Happy Independence Day, USA. We have no official fireworks celebration this year due to physical distancing. I am thankful, just the same, living in this country, with its wealth and freedom. Of course, no country is perfect. The USA still has a lot of promise, and I want to contribute to its fulfillment and the peaceful fix, however small.
Here's my gratitude list.
Toddler, Josiah, and Alayna are sporting their red and blue outfit on the 4th of July. For them, it's another day of play, enjoying the outdoors. I continue to enjoy my patio garden, small and manageable for me. I haven't bought a bouquet of flowers for weeks. I am thankful for the bees and butterflies in my new home. I didn't know that these insects play an active role in pollinating. Maybe I will have pumpkins this year and not just pumpkin flowers.My vegetable scraps are growing tall, at least, a centimeter a day. The picture is a 5-day old picture with goldfish in the bottom-feeding the plants continuously …
