I had a fairly relaxed morning. I made a couple of phone calls I needed to make and then, called a friend I hadn't spoken with in awhile and left a message. In the afternoon, I washed the dishes - some by hand and the rest in the dishwasher. I also scrubbed the sink, the stove top including under the burners, and wiped the counters. I noticed something had dripped down one or two of the lower cabinet fronts, (I love my white cabinets, but they show every spot and splash!) but I will wash the cabinet fronts another day.
I also did two loads of laundry and hung them up to dry. I debated doing my bed sheets, but I think I will wait and do them another day.
In the evening, I took the trash cans out and watered the front garden.
After that, I did a little cooking:
|Chicken, potatoes, and broccoli|
Inspired by my daughter, I cooked - honey/Dijon mustard/tomato-basil-garlic seasoned broiled chicken drumsticks, Southwestern Chipotle seasoned fried potatoes, and just plain steamed broccoli because, by then, I was tired and couldn't be bothered to make a fancy broccoli dish! LOL! The last of the strawberries for dessert.
I didn't cook the ground beef, however. When I mentioned it to daughter, she said to stop the negativity right there! But I told her that I was not being negative, just stating a fact! The ground beef will be cooked, tomorrow. I will take a sandwich for my lunch, tomorrow.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A warm summer day!
- A working dishwasher
- A working washing machine
- A productive day
- A tasty dinner (and leftovers for another couple of meals)
How was your Monday? Is it warming up where you are? Or, like Sharon in New Zealand, are you getting ready for winter?
