Today marks three weeks since the start of my vacation! I know I've done things, but I feel like I haven't accomplished half of what I had wanted to do during this time!
Cousin P's phone call woke me up, this morning. She wanted to know if I had a stamp I could give her to mail a payment; I said yes and she came over right away. I gave her two stamps, just in case she needed an extra one before she could go to the post office.
Then, I had my morning coffee and replied to blog comments. Later, I called to r.s.v.p. an invitation to a friend's 66th birthday. They are doing a Route 66 theme! So, of course, I am already thinking of how to incorporate the theme into the card I will make! I have some road map themed scrapbook paper, but its not specifically about Route 66. I wonder if I can cut up part of the invitation and incorporate it into the card, or would that be tacky?
In the afternoon, I did a load of laundry and a bit of this and a bit of that. But very little that was on my to do list!
Later in the evening, I went to the temple to participate in the Friday evening meditation session. I spoke with friend R before I left to ask if she wanted to go, too, but she had just come home from work and was tired. The meditation session was nice. I took a package of cookies I had bought some time ago and the package of wafers Aunt C had given me. I made friends with a Cuban American lady who was also participating in the meditation session. She had visited Sri Lanka recently and was telling me all about her visit, about the fresh fruits she enjoyed and drinking fresh King Coconut water (King Coconut have an orange colored outer husk and is considered the best type of coconut for drinking).
After I came home, I turned on the sprinklers at the back to water the back yard and video chatted with daughter. I also watched "South Pacific" on one of the public channels on TV. I have the VHS tape of it, but I enjoyed watching it on TV, too.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being on vacation
- Laundry drying quickly in the heat
- Being able to participate in the Friday evening meditations
- A visit from cousin P
- Having sprinklers to water the back yard.
