On Saturday morning, I woke up to the sound of daughter moving around in the kitchen. At first, I thought she was making her coffee. Then, I thought that maybe she was making herself some oatmeal. When I went to the kitchen to see what she was doing, this is what I saw:
Daughter left shortly after breakfast. Her friend came to pick her up and they picked up another friend who was going to do the cooking and then they were going grocery shopping and so forth.
I spent a relaxed morning watching some TV shows now that the TV is working again. I enjoy the Saturday morning shows on the public television channels - quilting, knitting and crochet, sewing, cooking, etc.
Later, I did a load of laundry and ran the dishwasher. Then, I attached new elastic to the waistband of one of my skirts. I was getting ready to alter the waistband of another skirt, as well, but then, I noticed that there was a tear in the fabric of the skirt. I could have darned it, but it was an old skirt and I decided to toss it, instead.
I also renewed a pillow. I had two small pillows, bought a couple of years ago, which had an inner covering that had deteriorated. I pulled the fiberfill out of both pillows, stuffed it all into an old pillowcase, and sewed the opening closed to make myself one new pillow:

Daughter came home later in the evening and we chatted for a bit before she went to bed. I should be going to bed, too, as soon as I've finished this post and cleaned the litter box.
On Saturday, I was grateful for:
- Daughter cooking me a surprise breakfast
- Daughter is able to spend the weekend doing fun things with her friends
- Machines that do the work for us - washing machines, dishwashers, sewing machines, etc.
- Cooking and sewing shows on TV
- Phone calls from friends and aunt
How was your Saturday? Have you woken up to a surprise breakfast being cooked for you?
