|The First Peach - Top|
|The First Peach - Bottom|
This morning, when I went out to water the back garden, I saw that a peach had fallen from the tree. It was about two inches in diameter, slightly misshapen, and, although it had a nice color, it was still quite hard and under-ripe. Not quite sure how or why it fell. I had a choice to make - do I keep it to ripen in a brown paper bag or do I eat it as it was? In the end, I decided to eat it as it was, because eating under-ripe fruit is nothing new to me. In fact, eating under-ripe, sour fruit with a mixture of salt and chili powder used to be a treat when I was a child! The peach was crunchy, a little sour and a little sweet. In fact, it was just right! I am considering this as the first peach of the season because all the other peaches that were thinned out or had fallen were too small and immature to be considered edible.
I spent a quiet day, today. Barb's news about her daughter Whitney's passing made me feel pensive. I'm coming up on the five year anniversary of my own cancer diagnosis and the possibility of it returning is something I think of quite often.
I made a couple of changes to my meal plan, today, and had tuna salad sandwiches for brunch, instead of the French toast, because Susan had mentioned tuna salad sandwiches in her comment on my meal plan post and that made me want tuna salad! Later, for dinner, instead of making coconut roti, I had frozen parathas with fish curry, as it was easier and quicker! I think I can make a whole week's worth of meals, now, based on the meals I planned to make and didn't! LOL.
I did a few house keeping tasks, watered the few indoor plants, cooked a fish curry, etc., and watched news. I also finished knitting another hat:

Today, I am grateful for:
- The first peach from the tree
- The rest of the peaches remaining on the tree!- Bird song in the garden
- Chatting with my daughter
- A quiet sort of day
Today's joyful activity was enjoying the first peach!
Plans for tomorrow include vacuuming, which I should have done yesterday, but, didn't!
How was your Thursday? What are your plans for Friday?
