Unfortunately, my poor daughter has come down with it, now. She started having a scratchy sore throat, last night. She made us both some coriander tea, which is our panacea for colds and coughs. But, today is her friend's big day, so, daughter went to the wedding. One of her friends picked her up in the morning and will bring her back, in the evening.

I went back to bed, after she left and slept for another couple of hours. Then, I ate a bagel with cream cheese and watched some TV and knitted. Later, in the early evening, I began to feel much better and I did the dishes and cooked some dhal, a mackerel curry, and rice. I had some of it for my dinner. My daughter will have dinner at the wedding, but, if she is still hungry when she comes home, there are leftovers.
The head monk at the temple called in the evening, to check on me. When he heard that I was not feeling too well, he asked me if there was anything I needed, but I said, no, I was OK. He said many people are down with colds and coughs at this time of the year. In fact, the people who had undertaken to host today's blessing ceremony at the temple were unable to do so due to illness. He was happy to hear that my daughter was home for the weekend.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Starting to feel better
- Daughter was able to attend her friend V's wedding
- Her friend A giving her a ride to the wedding and back
- The dress fitted her
- The monks calling to check on me
Today's joyful activity was resting and knitting.
The only thing on my to do list for today was doing the dishes. I am not going to make a to do list for tomorrow, either. Daughter has plans to go out to lunch with another friend, but that might depend on how well she feels. I might do a load of laundry, but, nothing else needs to be done.
How was your Saturday? What have you planned for Sunday?
