|My Paper Cutting Tool|
Today, in the morning, I called Aunt C to thank her for a lovely afternoon, yesterday, and to wish her a safe flight. She was stressing because they still hadn't finished packing!
These are the pairs of pants I received from my aunt, yesterday:
The new pants will be good for cooler weather, I am thinking, unless I cut the legs off one of the denim pairs and turn them into shorts to wear around the house (I don't wear shorts when I go outside, not even to water the front garden!). I currently have one pair of shorts, in a similar twill fabric, with an elastic waist; a second pair of shorts might be a good thing, especially in this heat! It's been another record breaking day, temperature-wise, with a high of 106F (41C); tomorrow is supposed to be between 104F to 108F. I planned to go into the bedroom and turn on the window a/c, if it got over 90F inside, but the family room went up to 88F, only, and I was fine with just the fans.
In addition to the four pairs of pants, aunt also gave me a new pair of shoes:
Today, I realized that I had forgotten all about the library's Tuesday evening knitting class, yesterday! It would have started just as I got home from visiting my aunt! I could have still gone to it (or gone there, directly), if I had only remembered it! I even forgot to put it on my To Do List for today! Oh, well, next week, I suppose. In any case, I had just spent the afternoon with aunt and cousin; that was enough social interaction for one day.
I had a scrambled egg and toast for brunch, today. Then, I did the dishes - rinsed and put some in the dishwasher and washed a few others by hand. I removed the burner liners from the stove and put them in the dishwasher to wash, as well. In the meantime, I cleaned the stove top and the area under the burners with baking soda and wiped down the counters. Then, I did some paperwork and tidied and wiped down the family room coffee table (it was looking messy and I was getting tired of seeing the mess!)
I had an ice cream bar in the afternoon, to cool off! Later, I had a cucumber salad and a cup of tea. A beef tamale, from the freezer, for dinner:
As soon as I came inside, I removed my clothes and washed them, immediately, just in case, using the "Very Low" setting for water. And I sprayed the pair of sneakers I wore outside when watering. I think I should buy another container or two of flea spray and keep on hand!
I should make a shopping list:
- Flea spray (indoors and out)
- Vacuum cleaner bags
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being on vacation!
- The new clothes and shoes
- What I was able to accomplish, today
- Video chatting with my daughter
- Being able to water the front garden without becoming a part of a flea circus!
