Yesterday (Monday), I dusted the living room and dining area. Neighbor T called because she couldn't remember if we spoke on Sunday or not; we did speak on Sunday, but, we chatted a little bit, again. In the afternoon, I practiced the piano. I had the lesson in the evening. Later, I played my piano pieces for my daughter. Afterwards, I took the trash cans to the curb and cooked dinner:
|Smoked Sausage Stir Fry|
|With Sauteed Zucchini|
I cooked the smoked sausage stir fry, adding a mixture of vegetables (carrots, broccoli, bell peppers, onions) and pineapple. I also sliced up and sauteed the zucchini that needed cooking immediately! Later, I did the dishes, chatted on the phone with friend R, and video chatted with my daughter.
The October Day 12 drawing prompt was "slippery" and daughter decided to draw a figure skater because ice is slippery. She did two poses, illustrating the beginning and the end of the skater's routine:
|Day 12: Slippery|
|Day 12: Slippery|
Today's prompt is "Dune"
|Day 13: Dune|
Today, I walked around the garden for a bit, brought in the empty trash cans, did a little housework, practiced the piano, watered the back garden, made a couple of phone calls, and watched some of the confirmation hearing.
When I went out to the garden in the morning, I picked a feijoa (pineapple guava). Last year, this tree had a bumper crop of feijoas and I picked so many that I was able to make two batches of jam. This year, however, there are all of five fruits!

However, I cut up the one feijoa, added half of a peach, sliced, and a handful of grapes, sprinkled it all with a mixture of chili powder, salt, and sugar, and made myself a fruit salad for a late breakfast:

Lunch was a bowl of soup and dinner was leftovers from last night.
I am grateful for:
- The return of summer
- Fresh fruit from the garden
- Virtual piano lessons
- Being able to keep in touch with family and friends
- Water for the garden
Joyful activities over the past couple of days include playing the piano, singing, and, video chatting with my daughter.
Plans for tomorrow include a visit to the dentist in the evening.
