Relaxed Friday

I had a more restful night of sleep, last night.  I woke up a couple of times, but went back to sleep each time.  When my daughter texted me to say good morning, I woke up and texted her back, then, slept, again!  When I finally woke up, a little later, it was already mid-morning.

Dancer coughed up a hair ball a little while later and he's been a bit listless all day.  He didn't ask for any tuna in the morning, when I made my tea and I didn't see or hear him eating any dry food the rest of the day, either.  I was a little worried about him, but, he didn't throw up, again.  He did ask for tuna when I was making tea in the evening and he did eat a little dried food, later, so I am hoping he is on the mend.

I had a relaxed rest of the morning.  Then, after brunch (a banana and a pita bread with beef curry), I went to Home Depot and bought the security light bulbs.  I walked around the garden section, but, didn't buy anything.

Later in the afternoon, I did some paperwork, watched TV, and knitted.  Then, when M came to tend to the garden, I made him a cup of tea and chatted with him while he trimmed the pomegranate tree and tidied up the front garden.

Friend R called later in the evening and we had a nice chat.

Today, I am grateful for:
- Dancer seems to be OK
- Another sunny, warm day
- Helpful sales people
- M tending to the garden for me
- The newest wildfires are not in my neighborhood

Friday's To Do List:
- Paperwork - DID SOME
- Tend to the garden with M - DONE
- Buy new bulbs for the garage security light - DONE

Saturday's To Do List:
- Have handyman A tend to the sliding glass door
- Discuss other projects I want him to do for me
- Attend the evening chanting ceremony at the temple, if possible

How was your Friday?  What are your plans for the weekend?


  1. I don't know if I have ever mentioned how much I love reading your daily thankful list. I have so much to be thankful for and reading your list makes me reflect on my own. So today I am letting you know one of the things I am thankful for daily is reading your thankful list!

    1. Aw, thank you, Anne. It is very kind of you to say so. We all have many things that go wrong or annoy us, each day, and it's easy to complain about them, but, I do believe that it helps to reflect on the things that do go right and for which to be thankful. :)

  2. I hope Dancer is okay.

    I don't have any plans for the weekend. The weather is awful, very windy and it's pouring down so whatever I end up doing will definitely be indoors.

    1. Dancer seems to be much better, today, thank you, Eileen. He asked for his morning tuna and ate what I gave him and he seems a bit more alert. I guess he just needed to rest, yesterday.

      Your weather doesn't sound too appealing, right now, although, we could do with some of that rain! Staying indoors and keeping warm and dry sounds like a very good idea! Hope you have a relaxing weekend, then. :)

  3. It's always easier to complain than to remember our blessings. I think there's some early human survival trait related to that. However, we're always better off when we can remember what we're thankful for. You set a good example of that.

    1. I'm sure you are right - focusing on the annoyances probably helped us to improve our circumstances and comfort level. :) But, while it is easier to complain, only focusing on what is wrong can lead to feeling down and a whole lot of negativity. I think that learning to count my blessings has enabled me to maintain a more positive attitude. Maybe one of these days, I'll do a list of complaints for a change! :D

  4. Hi Bless, I am glad to hear that Dancer is eating. I went for a gorgeous hike with Lula this morning. We went all the way up to Blue Ridge Campground. What a treat! My heart was soaring.

    1. Thanks, Stephenie. He's back to his usual self, today.

      Glad to hear that you are OK and went on a good hike with Lula. Take care and stay safe!

  5. Poor Dancer. I'm glad I don't have to self groom as my hair often comes away on the comb and I'd hate to be eating it!

    We seem to have been on the same program yesterday as we were in Home Depot too, looking for a new sweep for the bottom of the shower door.

    1. Yes; I give him a hair ball formula cat food, but he doesn't always like to eat it and prefers the other one I give to the garden cats! But, he seems to have recovered and is being feisty, again!

      Hope you were able to get what you needed for your shower door. :)
