Another warm day, but, the weather forecast says it will cool down to the 80s and 70s, with even a chance of rain, later in the week!
I had a fairly quiet day, today, partly because I was feeling nauseated (side effect of some of the medications I take). I wasn't able to sew as much on the baby quilt as I had hoped to, either, because the sewing machine was acting up, with the bobbin thread getting jammed all the time. I will change the bobbin thread, tomorrow, and hopefully, that will take care of the problem.
I did a load of laundry in the afternoon. I had to toss out three pillowcases I had sewn several years ago as they all tore during today's washing! I considered mending them, but, the fabric was too worn out. I think I sewed them at least 12 years ago!
Brunch had been cereal. Later, I cooked rice in my new rice cooker (tried it out for the first time, today), a mackerel curry, and a lentil curry (dhal). I also had some of my tomato chutney with it.
I finished reading my library book, today. The Occupied Garden, by Kristen den Hartog and Tracy Kasaboski. I enjoyed reading it.
Friend R called in the evening and we chatted for a bit. Later, I video chatted with my daughter.
My utilities bill came in the mail, today; $310.47. It covers water, electricity, sewer service, and solid waste collection (trash,recycling, and yard waste collection) for two months. I went over my Tier 1 water allocation for the period. I am allowed 16 hundred cubic feed (HCF) of water at Tier 1 rates ($6.55/HCF) and I had used 21 HCF. The additional 5 HCF is billed at a higher rate of $8.22/HCF. I guess I watered the garden too much!
Today, I am grateful for:
- A relaxed day
- Lemon lime soda and crackers
- Library books
- The new rice cooker working without any problems
- Cool evenings
How was your Wednesday? What are your plans for tomorrow?
