On Saturday, I woke up to an overcast day, feeling a little tired and decided to take it easy in the morning. I was still planning to go grocery shopping, etc., in the afternoon, but, in the afternoon, I experienced one of those ocular migraines that I get, occasionally. This was followed by a headache that didn't go away until much later, after I took a Tylenol, drank extra water, and rested.
The lady who leads the monthly prayer group called to let me know that she's hosting this month's prayer gathering at her house, next Sunday. My friend R called and we chatted for a bit. I also received an email from one of my long-time friends, which was nice.
Later, I washed the dishes - a load in the dishwasher and the rest (pots and pans, etc.) by hand.
Brunch had been a scrambled egg, a fresh orange from the tree, and a slice of panettone; dinner was pasta with shrimp curry and cucumber salad. An apple and chocolate-hazelnut spread for dessert. Later in the night, I wanted a savory snack, so I made a batch of cheese "crackers":
I could have gone grocery shopping, today, but decided to stay home and relax, instead. I put away the washed dishes from yesterday, watched coverage of the Olympics games, did a load of laundry (a quilt from daughter's bed), and knitted more hats for the American Heart Association.
My neighbor T didn't call me in the morning, as usual, so I called her in the evening. Another friend called to ask if I was going to the prayer gathering, next weekend, and, if so, could I give her a ride. I told her that I was planning to attend, but I will confirm closer to the date.
Brunch was sauted garbanzo beans (from the freezer) and another fresh orange from the garden; chicken and vegetable soup for dinner with a slice of panettone.
Even if I didn't go grocery shopping, my daughter did:
|Daughter's Grocery Shopping
4 cans of garbanzo beans
1 package instant noodles
1 package of 6 K-cups
3 pouches of freeze dried peaches
1 small can of condensed milk
1 bag of potatoes
1 bag of salad
1 bag of tangerines
1 can of coconut cream
1 can of something in tomato sauce (she told me what it was, but I forgot!)
She said her total came to $17 something (under $18); later in the week, she will go to Trader Joe's for milk or half and half.
This weekend, I am grateful for:
- Being able to stay home and relax
- Fresh oranges from the garden
- The headache went away, eventually
- An email from my friend
- Chatting with my daughter
I have the day off from work, tomorrow, so I plan to run all my errands, then.
How was your weekend? Do you sometimes make plans and have them all fly out the window because you don't feel up to doing anything?
