Saturday: More Sewing and Brunch

Today, we woke up early because daughter had to confirm her flight 24 hours in advance.  She went back to sleep, but I stayed up and continued to sew my pajama top.  I am almost done; just have to sew the buttons. 

Later in the morning, we went to the library to return two books that were due and went to the bank to get a cashier's check for daughter's apartment rent for April (must be paid with cashier's checks). 

Then, picked up a friend and we went out to brunch.  Tried a new to us pancake place.  I tried what was listed in the menu as German crepes - crepes served with lemon butter.  My friend tried the Swedish crepes which were served with lingonberry sauce.  They also had French crepes which were served with orange sauce.  Daughter had pecan pancakes.

Afterwards, we stopped at the grocery store where I picked up a gallon of milk and a bag of cat food. 

Then, came home and we relaxed and chatted and had tea.  After tea, daughter went hiking with one of her friends  and I drove my friend home.  Came back and watered the houseplants and cooked the pork chops I had in the freezer - I sliced them into thin strips and made a spicy curry with them.  We had that for dinner, with freshly cooked rice.  Afterwards, daughter and I went out for ice cream sundaes!

It's now 11:30 p.m. and daughter has packed her bags.  I can't believe her week at home has come to an end.  She will fly back to Berkeley tomorrow morning and the house will be quiet without her.  Yes, I will miss her when she's gone.

How was your Saturday?  Did you have a good start to your weekend?


  1. I'm glad you had a great week with your daughter! My Saturday was alright, nothing really special.

    1. Jess, thank you. A quiet Saturday can be a good thing; gives us a chance to relax and recharge our batteries.

  2. How quickly that week went by! Even as a bystander I feel it went too soon. Never mind, you have some happy memories to set you up for your frequent Skype sessions, and to look forward to the next time you will be with her in person.


    1. Bushlady, yes, we are already planning our next visit! LOL.

  3. Oh.. it is so hard ..when our children get to come home for the week.. and then leave.. Such fun..
    Even now, when my grown kids come with the grandkids.. and is so quiet, and takes me a while to get use to them being gone..
    will say a prayer for you..
    So happy you and she has such a lovely week.

    1. Judy, how kind of you to say a prayer for me! Thank you! It was a lovely visit and I enjoyed every minute of it. We are already planning our next visit! :D
