|Sri Lankan Treats|
Clockwise from the top: Mung kavum (with a filling of mung bean and treacle paste), lavariya (stringhopper dough filled with a coconut and treacle filling), kokis (similar to Swedish rosettes, but, not sweet and flavored with cumin), and handi kavum (deep fried batter of rice flour and treacle).
Today, I took a container of my beef and vegetable soup to neighbor T. She said she had it for lunch and enjoyed it very much.
I also took a container of soup over to friend R and she gave me all the lovely Sri Lankan treats, pictured above! R had ordered them from a lady who makes these traditional treats for sale. It was very sweet of her to share them with me and I will definitely be ordering some, myself!
It was another cool day as far as I was concerned (R was dressed in summer clothes while I was wearing sweaters and scarves!) We were supposed to get some rain, but, although there were several dark clouds overhead and it rained in another city a few miles away (gardener friend's sister lives there and he texted me in the early afternoon that they were getting rain), we didn't get any rain at all.
Daughter sent me her drawing for today. The prompt is "buddy":
|Day 25: Buddy|
The drawing is of three friends, Konata, Tsukasa, and Kagami, from Lucky Star.
Cousin P called in the evening and we had a nice little chat.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Friend R sharing the treats with me
- Being able to share some of the soup with friend R and neighbor T
- Electric space heaters
- Being able to video chat with my daughter
- Daughter's power didn't get cut (she received an alert that there might be a power cut due to an increased fire risk due to high winds)
Today's joyful activity was making deliveries of my soup and receiving treats from friend R.
How was your Sunday? What are your plans for Monday?
