Friend M stopped by to give me something to spray on the peach tree, which is showing signs of being attacked by some type of borer - there's dried sap on the trunk. He told me to break off the dried sap, spray this treatment, and seal it by painting the area with white glue.
In the afternoon, I started shortening daughter's bridesmaid dress. I had pinned it the last time she was here, but, I had a feeling that it needed to be shortened a bit more, so I hadn't sewn it. I had her try it on, again, yesterday, and I was right! It needed to be shortened a bit more! So, I had to repin it! The dress has a silky underskirt (or slip), and two layers of skirt. I hemmed the underskirt and the bottom layer of skirt, then, took a break to have a cup of iced coffee my daughter had made for me. Then, I drove her to her friend's house, as her friend was giving her a ride to their other friend's bachelorette party and back.
Came home after dropping off my daughter and sewed the top layer of skirt. Then, I took in the dress at the waist, because it was a little too big on my daughter. I also pinned the neck line as it is a cross-over style and it shows too much cleavage for my daughter's comfort. I need my daughter to try it on before I sew it (I'll hand sew it, in a manner that won't be seen, catching only the lining of the blouse).
Later, I returned friend R's phone call and we chatted for a bit. Then, aunt C called and we had a long chat!
My daughter's friend dropped her off after the party, which was nice. Daughter and I had both had an early dinner, but, we were both feeling like we could have something more. So, we made a fast food run and bought hamburgers and an order of fries which we shared! So much so for diets! LOL. But, I only make late night fast food runs when my daughter is home, so, it's a bit of a treat! In fact, my daughter said she had just been telling her friend who gave her a ride, about them (apparently, her friend had asked if my daughter wanted something from a hamburger place they passed before getting on the freeway)! Then, we stayed up for a bit and chatted. I went to bed earlier than daughter, though!
Yesterday, I was grateful for:
- Friend M bringing me the treatment for the peach tree
- Daughter's friend giving her a ride to the party and bringing her home, afterwards
- The sewing machine worked well and didn't give me any trouble with hemming the dress
- Iced coffee
- Phone calls with family and friends
So far, today, we've had a relaxed morning and I'm cooking milk rice for brunch. Plans for the rest of the day include going shopping.
How was your Saturday? What are your plans for today?
