I had the day off from work, today, and although I had listed several errands on my To Do List, I decided to stay home and take it easy. I was able to do so because I had enough of everything to last me for a few days if not the entire week. It is true, what they say: "Enough is as good as a feast". Enough can be such an abundance!
So, instead of going shopping for cat food (I have enough for this week), flea prevention medication (there's enough for this month), kitty litter (I have enough for this week), grocery shopping (I have enough in the freezer and fridge), and putting gas to the car (I have enough for at least another day or two), I changed my bed sheets, did two loads of laundry, put away the dried laundry, took the trash cans to the curb, watered the front garden, spoke with one of my neighbors, emailed a cousin and a friend, messaged another cousin, called a friend, spoke on the phone with my financial planner, video chatted with daughter, and caught up on blogs! I will run my errands another day. Or spread them out over several days.
For lunch, I pulled out a packet of frozen meatball curry and had some of that with some leftover pasta. There is enough meatball curry for at least two other servings during the week.
For dinner, I made a stir fry with half of the smoked sausage I had in the freezer, carrots, zucchini, onion, bell pepper strips, and a handful of peanuts, and had that with freshly cooked rice:

Today, I am grateful for:
- Supportive blogging friends
- Having the day off from work
- Being able to stay home and take it easy
- A well-stocked fridge/freezer/pantry
- Having sufficient for my immediate needs
How was your Monday? Did you have a good start to your week?
