Friday is my new Saturday, so it's nice to be blogging and not working. I went on a Sunday-Thursday schedule a few weeks ago, and I love it!!
Here we go--
1. I gave blood yesterday. For all the years I was at the bedside, I always gave blood, because I know how much of it we used in my area (cardiovascular ICU). For a couple of years, I even gave platelets, which is a tedious 4 hour process. But, after I left hospital nursing, I never really got back to it. Then, I spent a couple of years on a blood thinner, so no donating there. But with Covid and all, I decided to get back to it. Bonus--they test you for Covid antibodies, and if you have them, you can donate convalescent plasma. So off to the bus in a driving snowstorm, and zip zap, 1 pint of blood donated.
2. We are known for our sunsets here in New Mexico, but the last couple of mornings we've had some spectacular sunrises. I'm sitting here in my office and the light coming through the window is literally pink. I knew something was special when the light coming down through my skylights was pink too. I ran outside with my phone and these are the results. No filters....just the Land of Enchantment saying good morning.
