I was going to write another budget-related post, today, but I think I will leave it until tomorrow.
Thursday, I went to the office. During my lunch break, I went to the farmers market, but didn't buy anything, after all. A colleague was retiring so there was a retirement reception for him in the afternoon and after that, we had a birthday celebration for one of the supervisors! In between partying, I actually finished one assignment and started on another! Some of my colleagues were going out, after work, for a "happy hour" type of social gathering to celebrate our supervisor's birthday a bit more, but I chose to come home, instead. You know you are getting old when your colleagues are out celebrating and you are home taking a nap on the sofa! LOL.
As a result of the nap, however, I stayed up till very late, Thursday night, reading and didn't actually get to bed until 4:00 a.m.! I didn't worry too much about it, though, because I had taken Friday off from work. As a result, I slept in till quite late, this morning.
It was another over-cast and cool day; cool enough for me to turn on the heater till mid-afternoon. As I told one of my friends, there were plenty of things I could have done. Instead, I chose to have another relaxed day! I played on the computer, read, renewed a library book on-line, walked around my garden and admired the roses that are blooming, had a long chat on the phone with one of my aunts, and video chatted with my daughter. I did do the dishes and I baked a cake to take to Saturday night's prayer meeting dinner. So, I was somewhat productive, I guess.
Oh, and I found the inspiration for my Halloween costume, this year! I shall invest $10 on fabric flowers from the dollar store for it and I already have a jacket I could use!
Today, I am grateful for:
- A day off from work to relax
- Being able to renew library books on-line
- Roses blooming in the garden
- Phone call from aunt
- Halloween costume inspiration
Tomorrow, I should do all those things I could have done today, but didn't! I need to also do a little grocery shopping to buy some ingredients for the frosting for the cake. I don't have powdered sugar and I don't feel like grinding sugar to make my own! In the evening, I will attend the monthly prayer gathering. I have asked my cousin for a ride, if she's going, but she said her daughter might be busy. Most probably, I shall be driving us to the prayer gathering. I had better put gas to the car, then.
Saturday's To Do List:
- Put gas to the car
- Grocery shop for frosting ingredients
- Frost and decorate the cake
- Tidy the house
- Attend the prayer gathering
How was your Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
