I've spent a quiet weekend. I'm feeling much better, but I've not felt very energetic, so, I've been resting and taking it easy.
Saturday was a cool, overcast day with hazy sunshine. Daughter slept in and I spent a quiet morning, reading blogs, etc. Once she woke up, I asked her if she'd like to go out to brunch, but she declined and so, we ate what we had in the fridge. She ate some leftover mung beans and I had some of the carne asada and pinto beans burrito she had brought home from her dinner out with friends on Friday night. Later in the afternoon, I took a long nap on the sofa. Daughter went out with her friends, Saturday evening, to participate in another escape room adventure and dinner out. I spent a quiet evening at home and had some leftover soup for my dinner, along with some toast. Later, daughter and I shared a piece of ice cream cake for dessert. One of my aunts called and I had a nice chat with her.
Sunday was another cool and overcast day with a shower of rain in the morning; but the afternoon was clear and sunny. Daughter's friends had planned a surprise outing for her! All she had been told was to bring her appetite! They came to pick her up at 10:30 a.m. and she didn't come home until 10:00 p.m.! Apparently, they had gone out for Korean barbecue, followed by a tour of the Warner Brothers Studios, and then, dinner out! These are friends she's known from her school days - one since 4th grade, others since middle school, and one since high school. I am glad she was able to visit with them while she was down here for the weekend.
I spent a quiet morning, relaxing. My neighbor called and we had our weekly Sunday morning chat. Lunch was a tuna sandwich and I took another long nap in the afternoon! I had originally planned to go grocery shopping in the afternoon, but I didn't feel up to it, so decided to skip it. I will grocery shop later in the week. Instead, I did a load of dishes and wiped down the kitchen counters. That was the extent of my productivity for the day! In the evening, I called one of my friends and had a nice chat with her. Dinner was more leftover soup and another tuna sandwich.
This weekend, I was grateful for:
- My daughter was able to get together with her various friends and enjoy celebrating her birthday with them.
- A welcome shower of rain, which meant I didn't have to water the garden, again.
- Long, afternoon naps!
- A quiet, restful weekend.
- Phone conversations with family and friends.
Tomorrow, my daughter will return to Berkeley and I will try to get a few things done.

- Office work (work from home)
