Today was mostly sunny, with clear blue skies, until late afternoon when the clouds moved in. There is rain in the forecast for tomorrow.
Cousin P called me in the morning and asked me if I could come over for a minute, so, I masked up and walked over (she lives two houses down across the street from me). I wore one of the dresses she had given me so she could see how well it fitted me. The reason why she called me over was to give me another bag of clothes with a shirt, a sweatshirt, and a sweater! I think they will be good for my daughter. Now it is my turn to go through my closet and see what I can set aside to donate, to make room for the new additions to the closet!
Neighbor T called in the early afternoon and we chatted for a bit. Afterwards, I went out into the back garden and did a bit of weeding. The ground was nice and soft after the rain so it was easy to pull up the weeds.
I picked two oranges and four radishes from the garden, today. I have three or four more radish plants still in the ground and that will be the end of the radish harvest, unless I buy more seeds and plant them (these plants are from seeds that M shared with me). Since I saute the leaves to be eaten as greens, the whole plant gets eaten and there is no waste.
Speaking of food...last night, before I went to bed, I put mung beans to soak and, this morning, I boiled them for our brunch. For dinner, I cooked the rest of the packet of rice noodles that I had. I had some of the rice noodles with leftover Thai Green Curry soup and my daughter had rice noodles with leftover roast beef and vegetables. I need to see what I have in the freezer and come up with a list of meal plan possibilities for next week.
In the evening, neighbor S's daughter N brought us three boxes of cornbread mix! Apparently, one of her cousins had ordered more than was needed and gave her some of the extras; she had texted my daughter to ask if we would like to have some. We offered to pay for them, but, she declined. Daughter gave her some of the flourless oatmeal peanut butter cookies she had made, in return.
Later in the evening, I practiced the piano and then, chatted with friend R.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A sunny day
- Today's garden harvest
- More clothes from my cousin
- Neighbors sharing the cornbread mixes
- Receiving a card from my oldest half-brother
Today's joyful act was harvesting some fruits and vegetables from the garden!
It's time to start posting my regular To Do lists, again, I think!
