Today, I chose to wear the same black skirt I wore on Wednesday with a blouse that one of my cousins had given me for Christmas:
For those of you playing the "Spot the Dancer" game, you can't see Dancer in this picture, but he's there on the bed, and the clue to his presence is the quilt which has been pulled down off the pillows, a bit. The quilt is tied with yarn bows in the center of each flower and he likes to play with them. He was pouncing on them while I was taking the picture.
I picked up my friend a little after noon and we went to one of our favorite restaurants. It's a small, family style restaurant and is the same place we went to on Mother's Day, too. This time, we both ordered their hamburgers; I had cole slaw as my side order and my friend chose the seasoned French fries. Then, we each shared our side orders with each other. I couldn't finish my hamburger, so brought home half of it and had it for my dinner.
After lunch, my friend and I did a little grocery shopping together. Then, she came home with me and we spent the rest of the afternoon chatting. We had tea and then, I took her back to her apartment. We didn't go clothes shopping today, but we will do so another day.
After I came home, I put water to the front garden and video chatted with my daughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to keep company with my friend
- A pleasant meal out
- Tea and conversation
- Zucchinis growing in the garden!
- Old photograph albums
Tomorrow (or, rather, later today, as I am writing this at 1:15 a.m.), I have been invited to an annual chili cook-off/potluck at one of my supervisor's house. I am still undecided if I want to go or not. Part of me wants to go for the socializing (he always invites colleagues who have since retired and it's one of the rare times we all see each other). Part of me wants to stay home and relax. I'll decide tomorrow, depending on how I feel.
How was your Saturday? Did you have a pleasant day? What are your plans for Sunday?
