Today, I sewed six masks to give to my friend's daughter. She came by, after work (she is an essential worker) for them. I had her wait in the car while I placed the bag of masks, and the bag of lemons I had picked for her mother, in the trunk of her car. I wore my own mask when I did that.
After the masks were sewn, I continued to sew the seams on my sweater. I couldn't finish sewing the sleeves, so, will try to finish sewing it, tomorrow.
Friend M came over in the evening to tend to the garden and I gave him the spare masks I had made for him.
In between sewing masks and sewing the sweater, I started the car (thank goodness it started!), did a little bit of weeding while the car engine ran, watched news, practiced the piano, and chatted with friend R and friend A, who called to thank me for the masks and the lemons.
It was cloudy in the morning; the forecast called for rain, but, it didn't rain and the afternoon was warm and sunny. I had held off on watering the garden (other than the peach tree), thinking it might rain, but, since it didn't rain, I will water, tomorrow. There is no more rain in the forecast for the next several days.
Today, I struggled to drink my water, but, I managed to drink 7 cups of water, in addition to the two cups of tea. I will see if I can drink one more cup of water before I go to bed. I didn't drink any orange juice.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The sunny and warm afternoon
- Being able to sew more masks and give them to friends
- My fabric stash
- An abundance of lemons
- Phone calls from friends
Today's joyful activity was sewing.
How was your Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
