I spent the day relaxing and resting, today, too.
It has been a day of phone calls! First, my daughter called to say she was going with a co-worker to a stable attached to a race tract to feed the cats there. Apparently, some of the stable hands have pet cats that they leave behind when they go to other places and there are also some stray cats who hang around the stables; daughter's co-worker volunteers there and feeds the cats. Daughter has gone with her a couple of times before, too. Afterwards, they were going grocery shopping together.
After that, one of my aunts (not the one I was to give a ride to the prayer meeting) called to check on me and I told her about my arm. She was concerned enough to call me back in the evening, too, to ask how I was. I told her I was feeling much better. On Friday, her daughter had called to say she and aunt were planning to visit me tomorrow (Monday), but today, aunt said that my cousin was having a cold and they will visit when she's feeling better.
Then, I called my half-sister to wish her for her birthday. After that, I called my neighbor for our weekly Sunday morning chat.
In the afternoon, my cousin (whose daughter drove them to the prayer gathering last night) called to check on me. I said my arm was feeling better today and apologized again for not being able to drive them. She said not to worry about it.
I spent the rest of the afternoon reading my library book. I am almost at the end of it, which is good, because it is due on Tuesday! Daughter called me when she came back to her apartment to tell me about the good deals she got at the grocery store and what she bought, etc.
In the evening, the aunt I was to give a ride to the prayer gathering called to check on me. As I said, it was a day of phone calls!
Later in the evening, I video chatted with my daughter. She said her office friend had remarked on the close relationship we have.
Today, while I was chatting with my daughter, I had an urge to bake a cake! So, at 10:30 p.m., I took out a box of yellow cake mix I had in the cupboard and half an hour later, I had a freshly baked cake:
|Plain, Yellow Cake|
I had to cut myself a slice:
|Slice of Yellow Cake|
I tried it and it tasted slightly bitter, but not too bad. Tomorrow, I might make a glaze for it and see if that improves the taste. It's not that the cake itself is bitter. It's just that it tastes bitter to me.
Today, I am grateful for:
- My arm feels better
- Everyone's care and concern
- Another restful day
- Phone calls with daughter, family, neighbor, etc.
- Freshly baked cake, still warm from the oven.
I have the day off from work, tomorrow. I have made myself a very small to do list of mostly essential things I need to do.
Monday's To Do List:
- Do the dishes
- Clean the litter box
- Water the indoor plants
- Empty the trash cans
- Take the big trash cans to the curb
- Water the garden, front (by hand) and back (sprinklers)
There's a ton of other things that ought to be done, but it all depends on how my arm feels and how well I feel. They include dusting, vacuuming, laundry, changing my bed sheets, tidying, etc.
How was your Sunday? Did you have a day of rest?
