I invited my cousin to stay to lunch, but she declined. So, I packed up the last of the waffles I had made and sent them home with her, for her mother. I also wanted to give her some chicken curry to take back with her, but she declined, saying she had a lot of food in her fridge. Later, when my aunt called to thank me for the waffles, I got the impression that she would have liked some of my chicken curry, as well. I shall be sure to send some home with my cousin the next time she accompanies me to one of my medical appointments.
After my cousin left, I had lunch (a roast beef sandwich) and did a load of laundry. Then, I took a nap. Later, I cooked a beef stew for my dinner:
Beef, onions, carrots, potatoes, and green beans, some Worcestershire sauce, pepper and salt. There's enough leftover for two more servings.
The ground beef I bought on Sunday has been browned with onions, finely diced celery and grated carrots. I had a little of it with some mashed potatoes, last night, for dinner. The rest was divided into two portions and frozen.
Today, I am grateful for:
- My eye exam went well; nothing was wrong except for the beginnings of cataracts
- My cousin accompanied me and drove me home, afterwards
- An afternoon nap
- Phone calls from aunt and another cousin; emails from friends; video chatting with my daughter
- Returning taste buds!
According to the news, there were rain showers to the south of us. But we didn't get any rain where I live.
How was your day?
