Came home, had a cup of coffee, chatted with daughter for a bit, and then, went to the garden to do more weeding. Even though I had watered the garden, yesterday, the ground was dry and rock hard, so I gave up on the weeding after a few minutes. Instead, I took a few more cuttings from some succulents and picked the first of this season's cherry guavas. I didn't take a photograph of what I picked today, but this is a photograph I took of the cherry guavas I picked last year:
Later in the evening, I called my friend who had asked for a ride to the fabric store and made arrangements to take her shopping on Saturday afternoon. Then, I video chatted with daughter; she had gone grocery shopping and told me all the specials she picked up. She gets personalized coupons sent to her and the store has "$5 Friday" specials with some items going on sale for $5 (such as a whole roast chicken, 3 boxes of cereal, 12 oz. fillet of frozen salmon, etc.) I, too, went through this week's grocery ads, just to see if there were any "too good to miss" sales; there weren't, so I'll stick to my plan to not grocery shop this weekend.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A drive through the park on my way to work and back
- More fresh fruit from the garden
- Ceiling fans! (It was in the upper 90s, here, today, and I don't have central air conditioning)
- Cool evening breezes
- The weekend is here!
Looking forward to a relaxed weekend. Oh, there will be house cleaning and laundry and so forth, that needs to be done, but, there will also be, getting together with a friend, a trip to the fabric store, and more guava to pick.
Did you have a good day, today? What are your plans for the weekend?
