Friday has been a quiet day. It was a low energy day for me (I woke up feeling just a little bit under the weather) and took it easy as a result. I spent the morning replying to blog comments and spent the afternoon catching up on reading several blogs. I walked in the garden for a bit, in the afternoon, and checked on the plants. I was able to pick a few more feijoa (pineapple guavas). This year's crop of feijoa is nothing at all like last year's when I had a bumper crop of them. But, I am grateful for every single fruit I pick from my garden.
Friend M came over in the evening to tend to the garden. He brought me a plant cutting that he potted up for me and he planted a few more vegetable seeds. So far, other than the radish seeds and four peas, only weeds seem to be growing in my little victory garden, but, I am hopeful that some of the other seeds will also start growing! He also pruned the peach tree, looking over each and every twig and carefully pruning them. We also discussed additional plants for the garden - maybe a nectarine tree and another orange tree. Afterwards, I made us a cup of tea and we drank it, sitting socially distanced, before he left.
I spent most of the evening watching news and news programs until I felt I had my fill of news for the day and turned off the TV.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The fruits I am able to pick from the garden
- M bringing me another plant cutting
- Being able to take it easy when I don't feel energetic
- Video chatting with my daughter
- Phone calls and emails with friends
Today's joyful activity was relaxing.
Plans for tomorrow include watering the back garden and doing some laundry.
How was your Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
