|Peach Tree in Bloom|
The afternoon was quite productive, however.
First, I made some egg salad so I could have an egg salad sandwich for brunch.
Then, I practiced the piano, tidied and dusted the living room, brought the trash cans in, and watered the garden.
Afterwards, I did the dishes and cleaned the kitchen - scrubbed the stove top and under the burners, cleaned the toaster oven, wiped down about two-thirds of the kitchen counters, scrubbed the sink, and replaced all the sponges and scrub cloths. Then, it was time to have a cup of tea and eat some of the spicy snack mix I had bought from the Sri Lankan store.
I watched the evening news and went through some mail and this week's grocery ads while I did that. Then, I watched the State of the Union speech and put the by now well dried sofa slip covers back on the second sofa. This is the sofa on which Dancer tends to prefer to nap and although I cover the slip covers with an old sheet, there was still some of his fur on the slip covers, even after washing! So, I went over the sofa and cushions with a lint roller to remove the fur and covered the sofa with two sheets! I was just inserting the decorative cushions into their covers when my hands began to cramp. This is the sign for me to stop! I took my magnesium supplements and waited for the cramps to subside.
Later, however, after dinner, I was able to clear the family room coffee table and dust it. I still need to clear the small dining table in the family room and dust the shelves, etc. That is on the agenda for tomorrow.
Today, I am grateful for:
- What I was able to accomplish
- Flowers on the peach tree
- Bees buzzing around the peach flowers (and, hopefully, pollinating them!)
- A sunny afternoon
- Video chatting with my daughter
Today's joyful activity was being out in the garden, watering, and admiring the flowers.
Wednesday's To Do List:
- Practice the piano
- Finish tidying and dusting the family room
- Cook the chicken curry!
- Clean the rest of the kitchen
How was your Tuesday? What are your plans for Wednesday?
