It was a cold, drizzly day. The type of day I'd have preferred to have stayed home, next to the heater, but, a member of the extended family was hosting the monthly prayer gathering to commemorate her father's first death anniversary, today, and I had promised cousin P (it was her paternal uncle's death anniversary; I'm related to her through our mothers who were sisters) and friend F a ride to the prayer gathering and back. I had asked them to come to my house by noon and they did! We left at noon and the drive took just over an hour, as I had estimated it would (we had been asked to arrive around 1:00 p.m.). There was quite a bit of traffic on the freeway, as usual, but it was flowing.
It was nice to see several members of the extended family and family friends. After the prayers were said, we had lunch. The hostess had originally said it was going to be brunch, but, I guess she was persuaded to change her mind as several friends offered to help with the cooking, and so, we had lunch, instead - yellow rice, curries, several types of salads, and a variety of desserts! Later, as I was about to leave, one of my cousins thrust a paper plate into my hands and said to serve myself a plate of food to bring home, so I did! LOL.
We got back to my house a little before 5:00 p.m. Neither cousin P nor friend F wanted any tea, so I made myself a cup after they left.
Later in the evening, I made myself a rice-filled neck and shoulder warmer:
Today, I am grateful for:
- The rain for the garden
- A safe drive to the prayer gathering and back
- The car got a good run
- I was able to give a ride to my cousin and a friend
- My new neck warmer
I didn't do any file clearing or any other type of cleaning, today. One of my friends has been telling me I've been working too much and she might be right! Tomorrow, however, I need to do the dishes as they've piled up over the past couple of days! Tomorrow is Memorial Day, here, in the U.S. I called friend R to see if she wanted to get together, but, she said she has some shopping to do. I think I will spend the day relaxing at home and attending to a few things around the house. Today's joyful activities included attending the prayer gathering and making the neck warmer.
- Do the dishes/run the dishwasher
- Change my bedsheets
- Do a load of laundry
- Dust the living room & dining area
- Clean the fridge
- Take the trash cans to the curb
- 30 minutes of file clearing
- One craft project
(I don't have to water the garden, normally scheduled for Monday, since it rained, today.)
How was your Sunday? What have you planned for tomorrow?
