Today, I slept in and caught up on my sleep! Then, I spent the rest of the morning and the afternoon relaxing, watching TV, and blogging!
In between, I cleaned the living room, dusting the shelving and furniture, wiping the collectibles, and rearranging some of them as I tried to decide if I should declutter some of them and, if so, which ones.
I also called Aunt C and spoke with both her and her daughter, my cousin C, who answered the phone; apparently, aunt is still having a cough and is on a different medication prescribed by the doctor.
I had thought of going grocery shopping, today, but didn't. Instead, I pulled out more items from the freezer for my lunch: curried meatballs, green beans, and lentils. I had to make more gravy for the meatballs, but that wasn't a problem, and I had leftover rice in the fridge.
There are more leftover meatball curry and lentils for another meal (and more green beans in the freezer).
I also pulled out a package of leftover roast chicken that I had frozen and made a pot of soup with it for dinner. I added onions, celery, tomatoes, asparagus (very few as that was all I had in the freezer), and carrots to the soup:
|Dinner: Chicken Soup|
There's enough soup for several more bowls, during the week.
I made some sauted apples for dessert, but I didn't take a picture of that.
I also washed the dishes and wiped down the kitchen counters. I was able to keep the kitchen counters relatively clear all week, which was a big achievement for me! I still have too many things out on my counters, and I am working on it, but certain items will always be on my counters, I suppose - the toaster, the microwave, the rice cooker, daughter's coffee maker, the stone mortar and pestle, for example. But, there are some other items that need to find a home in the cabinets, eventually, when I've decluttered the cabinets!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to sleep in on a Saturday morning
- A sunny and warm day (84F)
- Being able to stay home and relax
- Being able to do some deep cleaning in the living room
- Being able to make lunch and dinner with items on hand.
How was your Saturday? What have you planned for Sunday?
