I spent most of the day working on office work, today, while daughter worked on her research paper. But we were seated in the same room and we were together while each did her own work.
In the afternoon, I dropped her off at the airport - her flight was delayed a bit, but it wasn't too bad. I was glad as I don't like it when she has to walk from the subway station to her apartment in the dark. But she called to say she reached her apartment before 8:00 p.m.
After I came home, I emptied the waste baskets and kitchen trash, etc., and took the trash cans to the curb. My next door neighbor saw me and asked if I needed any help taking the trash cans to the curb, but I said I was able to manage. I did appreciate his offer of help, though.
After that, I put water to the front garden, again. It was in the 80s, here, today, and the roses were starting to droop again. I will water the roses in the back garden, tomorrow, and deadhead them.
Spending the evening watching Dancing with the Stars, while video chatting with daughter. We aren't talking all that much though, actually, since she's working on her research paper, as it is due tomorrow! But I can see her on my computer screen and she can see me, so it is just as if we are sitting in the same room doing our own things.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter had a safe flight back.
- Another day with barely any side effects.
- Lovely weather.
- Offer of help from neighbor.
-Technology which enables us to connect over the miles.
All in all, a very good start to the week. How was your Monday?
