Sunday, August 11, 2019


Sunday has been a restful, yet, quietly productive day.  I woke up feeling some gastric discomfort and nausea.  I had my morning cup of tea, took an antacid, and decided to take it easy.  Breakfast was a bowl of raspberries.  Neighbor T called in the morning and we had a chat. 

I changed the sofa dust covers and did a load of laundry.  Then, I sorted through the pile of papers and filed or recycled as needed. I put a couple of pieces of paper into my "For Action" file folder to work on during the week.

In the early afternoon, I took friend R to get the shipping boxes she needed.  I asked her if she needed to go anywhere else, but she said no.  We decided not to go out to lunch, today.  I invited her home for a cup of tea, but she declined.  So, I dropped her off at her home, came home, and had two pieces of dry toast and lemon lime soda for lunch.  Afterwards, I took a nap on the sofa.

Later, I had two more pieces of toast with a scrambled egg for dinner.  Then, did the dishes and scrubbed the kitchen sink.  I also tidied the computer desk in the family room.  I no longer have a working desk top computer, but the computer desk is still there, with the old computer and monitor!  I should probably go to the computer store and ask them if they can erase what might be on the old computer and recycle it for me.  There are three non-working laptops, too!  I am not sure what I should do with them!

Today's decluttering included:
2 magazines
4 glass jars

My joyful activity was helping friend R get her shipping boxes.

Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to help friend R
- What I was able to accomplish today
- Lemon-lime soda!
- Afternoon naps
- The cooler than normal temperatures (today's high was only 86F, I believe; I didn't even put the fan on!)

How was your weekend?  What are your plans for Monday?


  1. You still got loads done even though you weren't feeling 100%, so give yourself a pat on the back.

    I sent my old laptops to a UK charity that refurbishes old computers for use in third world countries.

    1. Yes, I did everything that was on my to do list, so I am happy about that. I also spent some time playing nonograms, thanks to you! :D

      Oh, I wonder if there is a similar charity here? It has to be some place where I trust them to erase any personal information that might be on them, already. Especially, these days!

  2. Hi Bless, You always sound so organized. I went to the beach yesterday. It was gorgeous in Santa Monica. Today I am doing laundry and organizing paperwork.

    1. Ha, ha, I'm glad I sound organized, because I sure don't feel organized! :D

      I'm glad you were able to go to the beach, yesterday. I haven't been there, at all, this summer!

      I hope your day goes well. Laundry and paperwork is a good combination. :)

  3. Oops! Lost my longer comment. Oh, well. Sounds like a good and quiet day. Just like we all need from time to time.

    1. Oh, no! Sorry you lost the longer comment! Happens to me, too. Yes, it was a good, quiet day. :)

  4. I'm glad your gastric problem didn't seem to persist and that you were able to have some light food and a nap.
    I was pruning some water sprouts from the lilac bush and noticed a robin fussing and flying in the yard. Then I was amazed to find a nest in the thick part of the bush! So now I have to be quiet by the front steps, and pretend that I don't know it is there. I took a photo from the front window and cropped it. Later it rained and I saw a robin standing on the nest. After a while it flew away, leaving mother robin still huddled down there!

    1. Thank you, Bushlady.

      A robin's nest! Oh, how exciting! You'll be able to check from your window and see the babies after the eggs hatch! What fun!

  5. Your post reminded me that I have two old laptops. One still works though very slow, so I keep it as a backup. But the other one stopped working completely in 2009! I know I didn’t throw it out, but don’t remember where it is. 😳
    I need to find it and recycle.
