Friday and Saturday were cloudy and overcast. Today, however, was truly a sun day. I had a relaxed morning, drinking my tea, replying to blog comments, chatting on the phone with my daughter who called to wish me a good morning and with neighbor T who called for our usual Sunday morning chat.
I finished making the birthday cards; they are variations of the basic design I've been using for a majority of my cards, recently. I think I need to find another design I like because this one design is getting a bit stale! I still need to make the card for my niece's son, as I didn't make it, today.
I had planned to do some vacuuming, today, in the afternoon; instead, I took a nap! The living room sofa, with the late afternoon shining through the lace curtains, is my favorite place for a nap! Dancer's grumbles about his dinner getting late is what woke me up! LOL! I gave him his soft food (he has plenty of dry food in his bowl, available to him at all times, so, it's not like he doesn't have food, but he looks forward to his soft food in the morning and evening). Then, I had a cup of tea, myself.
I cooked a fish curry, today, with onions and tomatoes in it, and I had that for my dinner with leftover rice and leftover cashew curry. I set some of the fish curry aside to send home with cousin N, tomorrow. That way, she will have one less thing to cook for dinner, herself, after spending most of the day taking me to the eye doctor's and back. I took out a piece of chicken breast to thaw for tomorrow night's dinner. I might make a stir-fry with it.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A sunny, warm, relaxed day
- Afternoon naps on the sofa
- Having fun making cards
- Being able to pick more fresh oranges from the tree
- Emails and phone calls
Today's joyful activities included card making and a nap!
