Once again, I couldn't fall asleep until after 4:00 a.m., but slept in till almost 10:00 a.m., so that was good. I did wake up once, around 6:00 a.m. when Dancer meowed (he was asking for his breakfast), but I went back to sleep.
Daughter tidied the house for me, last night, so all I had to do this morning was dust and vacuum. I did that and picked some roses for the living room. I also picked some fresh lemons for the fruit bowl on the dining table and extra to give my sister.
Sister and her husband arrived at 1:00 p.m. and they brought Indian food for our lunch: rice, lamb curry, tandoori chicken, garlic naan, mint chutney, and carrot and green chili relish. I served sparkling apple cider to drink with our meal and the flan I made last night for dessert. After lunch, we lingered at the table, talking. It is such a blessing to have my sister living near enough for regular visits. I have two half brothers, too, but one lives in another country and the other lives in a different state. Two other half brothers have already passed away.
After sister left, I washed the dishes while daughter put away the leftovers. There are enough leftovers for a couple of meals for us.
I spent a quiet evening, just relaxing, and the time just got away from me. I was planning to do a load of laundry, but that will have to wait until tomorrow. It's already almost 1:00 a.m.! Way too late to do laundry!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Sister's visit/family time
- Indian food for lunch and leftovers
- Daughter tidying the house for me and a clean house
- Fresh roses and lemons from the garden, enough to share with sister
- A relaxed evening
How was your Saturday?
