In the afternoon, I joined in a video chat with a group of ladies I have known for several years, but, only on-line! We had all joined an online organizing forum which is now defunct. But, several of us formed a private group on a social media site and continued to keep in touch, discussing our cleaning and organizing challenges and, more recently, our concerns about the ongoing pandemic and its impact on our daily lives. Then, someone had the wonderful idea of having a video chat and offered to host it! Some of us were all excited about it, a few of us were nervous about it, but, it was wonderful! There were about seven or eight of us who joined in the chat and we talked for over one hour! LOL! It was fun!
Saturday lunch was a salad, made with the last bit of the lettuce, grated carrot, chopped apple, and a few slices of the cold roast beef, with the crisp apple and honey bottled dressing. That was the end of the lettuce I bought on March 16! It kept fresh, except for a couple of the outer leaves that were wilted and I put in the compost pile. My plan is to make cabbage salad with the cabbage I still have in the fridge (bought at the same time as the lettuce - I had to remove the two outer leaves of that, too, but, otherwise, it is still good).
With my evening cup of tea, I had two more slices of the Easter bread, with butter.
In the evening, I watered the garden, both back and front, with the hose. When I watered the star jasmine vine, the plant sneezed! What?! I was taken aback for a second before I realized that Snowball (the all-white garden cat) was hiding under it and must have got wet! Oops! Sorry, Snowball! She didn't come out, at first, and I watered some of the nearby plants, but, the star jasmine really needed a little more water, so I returned to water it, and, finally, a rather indignant Snowball ran out from under it and climbed up to her perch on the pineapple guava tree to lick the water off and groom her fur!
Dinner was rice sticks with vegetables mixed in and smoked sausage cooked with bell peppers, both from the freezer:

Still later in the night, I wanted a snack and the snack I really wanted was carrot sticks! So, I cut up some carrot sticks to munch on! I had them with peanut butter to add a little protein to the snack. Yay for relatively healthy, guilt free snacks! LOL.
On Saturday, I was grateful for:
- A lovely video chat with friends I've known a long time but, have never met!
- A sunny and warm day
- Water for the garden
- Food from the freezer
- Video chatting with my daughter
My joyful activity on Saturday was video chatting with friends.
How was your Saturday?
