In the afternoon, I decided to do a load of laundry, because, even though I had intended to laundry on Monday, I had enough of lights for a load, I had the time, the weather was good for them to dry quickly, and doing a load of laundry always makes me feel I've been productive! I actually did two loads of laundry! The laundry basket is empty now, so, tomorrow, I will wash the sofa dust covers.
Then, I organized my closet. I generally hang all the same type of garments together - all the blouses together, all the skirts together, etc. Within each group, the items are arranged by color, with all the white blouses together, all the black blouses together, and so forth. Recently, however, that order got disrupted as I just put back items without taking the time to sort them by type and color. The side of the closet to my left when I stand in front of it, has all the formal/evening wear and most of the pairs of pants and skirts; the side to my right has coats, jackets, cardigans, blouses and dresses. I was able to declutter a few items to put aside for donations.
Later, I did a little sewing and watered the front garden, including the new plants. They were looking a bit wilted, but, hopefully, they'll perk up after the watering.
My aunt T called in the evening and, later, I called friends A and R to check on them.
My daughter sent me more of her planner doodles (she corrected me and said it was a planner, not a journal or an appointment book!):
|More Doodles in Japanese and English|
She bought refrigerated pizza dough on Saturday and made the pizza with spinach pesto:
Toppings of her choice - pepperoni, mushrooms, onion, spinach, mozzarella, and sausage:

The baked pizza:
Makes me want pizza!
Later, daughter and I video chatted. She has started crocheting herself a scarf, so she was crocheting while we chatted and I was knitting one of the red hats for the Heart Association! We had our own crochet/knitting group going! She said the library there, too, has a knitting group that meets once a month, for two hours, on a Saturday evening. She said she made a note of it in her calendar and she's considering going. It's at the downtown library branch, which is a bus ride away, not in the branch that is across the street from her apartment, which would have been more convenient.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A relaxed, restful day
- Washing machines
- Being able to air dry the laundry
- Time in which to sew
- Video chatting with my daughter
