Being Together

Today, daughter's first full day at home, I had the day off from work.  We slept in until 9:30 a.m. and had a rather leisurely, relaxed morning.
I had changed the bed sheets, last night; so this morning, I washed the sheets and did another load of laundry.  Made milkrice for brunch.
Daughter played the piano most of the morning - she's learning to play a new piece.  Also, her former piano teacher wants daughter to participate in her winter recital.  So, she practiced her recital pieces. 
In the afternoon, we went to the mall (where it was nice and air conditioned!  Such a blessing!)  Daughter needed some new clothes for the fall semester - pants, tops, long sleeved turtle necks, etc.  She was able to buy herself two pairs of pants, two pairs of leggings, 3 long sleeved turtle necks, and a sweater, all for under $40.  She also bought me a new handbag and a pair of black pants as part of my birthday gift!  My birthday isn't until November, but she won't be home for my birthday, so, this is an advance gift.  My current everyday handbag is also what she bought me for a previous birthday, but it is well worn and looks a bit battered.
After we came home, I took the trash cans to the curb for trash pick up tomorrow.  Then, watered the front garden.  Called and chatted with a friend.  
Daughter went out to dinner with two of her friends, who are my neighbor's daughters.  They've known each other since they were babies and played together since childhood.  They are still good friends. She brought me a piece of cheese pie for my dessert.  :)
Today, I am grateful for:
- Time spent with my daughter
- Leisurely mornings
- Air conditioned malls
- Bargains
- Friends

How was your day, today? 


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day :-)

  2. So proud you had the day off, and got to spend it with your daughter.. proud you two had a good /cool shopping day.. Nothing like the AC at the mall.. makes you love the
    Have a great week.

    1. Thanks, Judy. The mall and libraries double up as cooling places when it is so hot.

  3. How fun, Bless! And what great deals on clothes .... In our area, one item would cost what your daughter paid for the 8 items. Bet you enjoyed your music filled morning too! :)

    1. Carolyn, believe me, there are shops here, too, where one item would have cost as much if not more! But there are a couple of places where discounted items are sold and we shop the sale and clearance racks and manage to find good bargains. :)
