Later, I ran the dish washer and mended a pair of daughter's pants; the back pocket was coming off and I sewed it back on.
For Sunday lunch, I cooked the salmon steaks:
|Sauted Salmon Steaks|
The salmon was served with rice, garlicky sauted green beans (the green beans were parboiled and sauted with sliced garlic in a bit of vegetable oil) and homemade tomato chutney:
In the evening, we did each others nails and I oiled and brushed daughter's hair. I also watered the back garden. Daughter sorted through some of her books and set aside a stack for donating. I shall be going through some of my books and adding to the donations, in the next few days.
Dinner was leftovers; fruit for dessert.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to spend the weekend with daughter
- Doing each others nails
- Daughter doing the dinner dishes for me
- Hugs and cuddles
- Cooking her favorite meals and being told, "You are totally spoiling me!"
Daughter returns to Berkeley, tomorrow. She has confirmed her flight and packed her bag. Just her carry-on bag; no checked luggage. We are relaxing on the sofa as I type this - with one hand as she has her head in my lap. Reminds me of the words of the song from My Fair Lady: "Someone's head resting on my knee". Yes, it is, indeed, quite "loverly". :)
Hope you, too, have spent a fine Sunday in the company of loved ones.
Sounds so nice :-)ReplyDelete

So happy you had such a lovely weekend with your daughter.ReplyDelete
The meals/and nail painting sounds like so much fun.
Judy, thank you. We did have fun. Playing "nail salon" and "hair salon" used to be two of her favorite things to do when she was a little girl.Delete
