Then, I put away the laundry I had left to dry, overnight, checked my emails, responded to blog comments, visited a few other blogs, etc. Cousin P called around 11:30 a.m. and I chatted with her for a bit. Then, I ate a tuna sandwich for brunch.
I spent the afternoon hemming my daughter's friend's dress. It took a little longer than I thought, because, of course, the bobbin thread had to act up when I was sewing the upper layer of skirt and I had to unpick and resew! I have asked her to come by, tomorrow evening, with her shoes, for a final fit on.
I had a cup of tea and watched some news, after that. Then, I got dressed to go to the Temple, to participate in the blessing ceremony they are holding every Saturday evening, until the end of October. It started at 7:00 p.m. and ended at 8:30 p.m., after which dinner was served to all who participated: yellow rice, noodles with vegetables, dhal (lentil) curry, pol (coconut) sambol, mackerel curry, and fried pappadum (lentil wafers). Desserts included cakes, ice cream, apple bananas, and a type of fudge made with semolina.
I chatted with my daughter after I came home.
Today's joyful activities were sewing and going to the Temple.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to participate in the blessing ceremony at the Temple
- Answered prayers
- A safe drive there and back
- Dancer's "wake up" service!
- Chatting with my daughter
Plans for tomorrow include going to the monthly prayer gathering and having my daughter's friend try on her dress. Fingers crossed that the length is correct!
How was your Saturday? What are your plans for Sunday?
