I'm a horrible mother! I texted daughter in the morning to let her know I was awake and to wish her a good day, but forgot to wish her for her birthday, until she reminded me! I felt really bad about it, but fortunately, she was not upset. We put it down to the condition generally known as chemo-brain or chemo-fog! We have spent the evening video chatting. She said she went to the nearby Indian grocery store and bought herself some kulfi (Indian ice cream) as a treat for her birthday.
It was a quietly productive day, today. I completed another segment of a work assignment and sent it in. Even then, at first I forgot to attach the file when I sent the email! I had to send a second email with the file attached! Such a memory lapse is very unusual for me. I will put it down to "chemo brain/chemo fog".
I also sewed a bit on the Flower Garden quilt, today. One step taken towards achieving the "leisure/crafts" goal for this month. It looks like I might need to buy another yard or two of the background green fabric. I will wait until the fabric goes on sale for 50% or more. The background fabric has been the only fabric I've had to buy for this otherwise scrap quilt. The flowers were all made from fabric leftover from other projects.
Later in the evening, I watered the front garden, especially the rose bushes that were planted last week. Hopefully, it will rain this weekend. Otherwise, I'll have to water again by the weekend.
Today, I had a phone call from one cousin and another cousin both text messaged me and phoned me. Two steps taken towards achieving my "family" goal for this month.
As a result, today has been fairly well balanced between office work, leisure sewing, daughter, family, gardening, etc.
Today, I am grateful for:
- My daughter turned 23 today!
- Getting another work assignment completed.
- Time to sew on my quilt.
- Being able to water my newly planted rose bushes.
- Calls from cousins.
How was your day?
