Happy Easter everyone who celebrates!

Not that I did much that was Eastery, but I got some things accomplished. The Rice's called me this morning while i was talking to Oldest Brother, Jon wants to come and visit this week to see Aunt Helen and oldest brother. We'll see if it works out.

Slept late, then got up and had breakfast and coffee. I puttered on the computer for awhile. Then I got out the ladder and changed the burnt out light bulb in the living room. I am annoyed, the bulb that burned out was one of the new LED bulbs I got, that says it has a lifespan of 10 years, It hasn't even been one year! I hope that it was just a fluke. It was scary changing the bulb without Oldest Brother to spot me on the ladder, but I did it.

Then I watched an episode of the Expanse. And I separated out the candy I bought for Middle Brother and split it up between him and me. And then I puttered on line some more, then motivated myself to clean the turtle tank. I changed the water and cleaned the filter, which really needed it.

The Kid called while I was changing the water so I took a break and talked to her.

Then I Skyped the FWiB. We got interrupted by his wife, so I puttered online till he called me back. Then we talked for awhile, and I got interrupted by the Rices calling back. So I talked to them, Jon wants to drive me to the doctor on Thursday, which would be nice if it works out.

After we got done skyping I had dinner, and then went to the bedroom and called [personal profile] mashfanficchick to tell zer about Aunt Helen. Finally I started reading Rule of Wolves, the new Leigh Bardugo Grishaverse book, sequel to King of Scars. I read till 8:30, then called Middle Brother. I told him Aunt Helen wasn't well, but nothing more. Then I read some more till 9 when I called Oldest Brother. And then I called the Kid but she didn't answer, I think she's Zooming her friends.

Fed the pets, and then had a bowl of ice cream. Got a Happy Easter text from John Ivon. And here I am, writing this.

I have my doctor's appointment tomorrow, at 3:00.
