I had a relaxed rest of the morning and a quiet afternoon. I pulled out the grey sweater and realized that I had only knitted half of the back of the sweater. I am doing an overall pattern called "Little Birds" in my knitting pattern book. I watched some figure skating on TV and knitted a bit, in the afternoon. I also baked another apple dump cake to take as my contribution to the rosary dinner. It turned out well. I meant to take a photograph of it, but I forgot!
Lunch was a bowl of my beef and vegetable soup. Then, in the evening, instead of tea, I had another bowl of soup and a fresh orange. Then, it was time to get dressed to go to the monthly rosary prayer gathering, being held at the home of the aunt who died on Wednesday.
|The New Sweater|
Cousin P came over to wait at my house for cousin V to pick us up. Cousin V called and said she was running a little late, because her mother, Aunt T, had to be taken to the hospital as she was not feeling well! She was checked out and found to be OK, so was sent home. Cousin V's son and daughter-in-law were staying the night with Aunt T, so cousin V and her sister, cousin R were able to attend the rosary. Aunt T has a live-in care giver, but she has the weekends off.
Once we got to the prayer gathering, the rosary was said and then, we all had dinner. I ate a little bit of rice, along with the curries, but, I think I would have been OK without the rice, too. Resisting the desserts was really hard! We left shortly after dinner.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Cousin V giving me a ride to the rosary and back
- My new sweater fitted me well
- My apple dump cake was well liked
- Aunt T is doing OK
- Being with family and friends
I don't have many plans for tomorrow. All depends on how well I feel.
How was your Saturday? What have you planned for tomorrow?
