Quiet Sunday and Weekly To Do List

Another sunny, warm day, here, in Southern California; it was 86F when I took my daughter to the airport in the afternoon.

We spent a quiet morning.  One of my friends called me and my neighbor called me.  Later, I made oatmeal for my daughter's breakfast and had a sandwich for mine.  I also paid the first installment of my property taxes.

In the afternoon, I dropped daughter off at the airport and came home.  I watered the new plants I had bought.  My gardener had brought me some additional plants, as well - snapdragons and a red geranium.  But I didn't water the garden.  Will do that tomorrow. I brought another bucket of kitty litter in from the garage and I cleaned the litter box.  Need to do the dishes and water the house plants.

Daughter's flight was delayed by half an hour, but she had a good flight and reached her apartment, safely.  We video chatted in the evening, of course. 

Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter's visit home
- She had a safe flight and reached her apartment safely

How was your Sunday?  What have you planned for the week ahead?


  1. Aren't lists wonderful? In addition to tracking what we need to do, they're great for reviewing all we've accomplished too. Especially motivating on days when we may not get as much done. Glad you had a great birthday weekend with your daughter!

    1. Yes, lists are the way to go for me. I have several lists going on simultaneously! But they definitely help!

  2. So happy you had a good visit with daughter, and she had a safe flight back.[always sad, to see them leave..]
    I love my to do list..Even if I dont accomplish all of it..It encourages me to get more done.
    I had a good Sunday.. Went to church, came home and mostly was just lazy..ha

    1. Thank you, Judy. It was lovely to have my daughter home for the weekend, and yes, sad to see her go. But she'll be back for Thanksgiving, and then, Christmas.

      I'm glad you had a relaxed Sunday. So important to have a quiet day to recharge our batteries. Hope you have a lovely week.
