I couldn't fall asleep on Wednesday night until past 5:00 a.m. I was in bed, but, I was wide awake! Then, I woke up to the sound of Dancer being sick. Not my favorite way to wake up, but, once I had cleaned up after him, I didn't want to go back to bed. It was already 10:00 a.m., anyway. Dancer was fine, the rest of the day, although I restricted his access to his dry food. I left the bowl out for a short while, then, took it away until later. He was still able to reach the dry food in the bag, but, he had to work for it, getting it out a piece at a time with his paw, so he was not as likely to overeat!
I spent the rest of the morning replying to blog comments, reading and commenting on a couple of other blogs, etc., and checking on the garden. The peach tree is doing well; no more leaf drops, although there are plenty of damaged leaves. Makes me wonder if the original leaf drop was due to a lack of water (I've been watering it practically daily, since then, rather than twice or trice a week!). I checked on the fruit, too, although, according to the label that came with the tree, the fruit won't be ready for picking until late June to mid July.

I received a partial delivery of my latest grocery shipment, yesterday. They are mostly canned items and there is a packet of new socks, in there, too! I sprayed the boxes with disinfectant and kept them to air for a couple of days before I open them.
In the early evening, I watched news and knitted a bit. Friend R called and we chatted for a bit and then, I took one of the corrugated boxes the earlier deliveries had arrived in, flattened it, and put it down in the side yard. It is my intention to use these delivery boxes as part of the weed barrier for the "path/stone creek" I am hoping to have in the side yard. I have another box waiting to be broken down and then, I'll have to see if I can scrounge up more boxes! I'll have to check my neighbors' recycling bins on Monday! LOL!
Afterwards, I watered the back garden and practiced the piano, after a long time! Shh! Don't tell neighbor S, as she asks me if I am practicing and I have been telling her, yes! LOL!
Later, I called friend S (the one who works in the grocery store) to congratulate her daughter on graduating from high school. The graduating class held a parade around the school block, my friend told me, being driven by their parents and applauded by the neighbors.
Still later, I video chatted with my daughter, exchanged emails with a friend, played a few games of Solitaire on the computer, and decided to go to sleep at a decent hour (read 2:00 a.m.) instead of writing a blog post!
Yesterday, I was grateful for:
- Dancer was fine the rest of the day
- Daughter had a good work day
- Deliveries of groceries and other items
- Water for the garden
- The peach tree is coming along well
My joyful activity was being out in the garden.
How was your Thursday? What are your plans for Friday?
