I picked the last of the radishes from my little vegetable plot, today. The radishes aren't very big, but, I will cook the greens, as well, and they will make a nice vegetable for a meal, tomorrow. I also picked two more oranges, which my daughter and I had, just as they were, and another couple of sprigs of curry leaves for cooking.
I slept in, today, although my daughter woke up early for work. Later in the morning, neighbor S called and, guess what? She brought over another plate of barbecue for us:
|More Kebabs and Chicken Wings|
I boiled the two ears of corn that I had in the fridge and we had some of the barbecue and corn on the cob for brunch, followed by the freshly picked oranges. Later in the evening, I made fried rice with leftover rice, the leftover smoked sausage, some of the corn, and an egg. This time, I was able to crack the egg into the frying pan! Ha, ha! Much later in the evening, I baked some biscuits using a can of refrigerated dough for a snack for us; daughter ate hers plain and I had mine with a piece of cheese.
Today, it was clear and even a bit sunny in the morning and early afternoon. But, the clouds rolled in by evening and it has been raining since around 6:00 p.m. I am glad for the rain, because we really need it!
Today, I got the house vacuumed and cleaned the tops of the washer and dryer, including all the little crevices where soap residue and dust tend to collect. I handwashed two of my wool sweaters and lay them out flat to dry. I did a little paperwork, ran the dishwasher, put away a load of laundry, practiced the piano and had my piano lesson, as well. Both cousin P and friend R called and we chatted for a bit.
Today, I am grateful for:
- S bringing us more food
- Today's harvest from the garden
- The rain in the evening
- Phone calls from family and friends
- Having my daughter home with me
Today's joyful activity was crocheting.
I was able to do most of the items on my to do list for today and I am happy with what I was able to accomplish.
Friday's To Do List:
- Clean the bathrooms
- Tidy and dust my bedroom
- Do one deep cleaning task (wash family room window and sliding glass door)
- Tend to the garden with M (if the rain permits)
How was your Thursday? What are your plans for Friday?
