Today was a relatively quiet day. I spent the morning on the computer, then, practiced the piano, brought in the empty trash bins, walked up and down the driveway for 15 minutes, and put away the load of laundry I did, yesterday. I watched a cooking show or two on TV in the afternoon, finished knitting the hat I was making, and watered the front garden.
Later in the evening, I had my first piano lesson for this year. It's hard to believe that I have been taking piano lessons for one year, now! I received three new songs to learn so that will keep me busy!
Afterwards, I spoke with family and friends on the phone, did the dishes, cleaned the stove, and packaged some of the chicken thighs I had bought and froze them.
I still haven't made a meal plan for this week, but, daughter asked me to keep one tray of chicken out for her to cook and there is a piece of beef that I want to roast, tomorrow. Yesterday (Monday), I made the sauteed salmon for dinner and we had that with rice and a side salad, with strawberries for dessert. Today, breakfast had been a banana, lunch was rice with turkey meatball curry, sauteed cabbage, and lentil curry; I had a croissant with some peach jam with a cup of tea at 5:30 p.m., and dinner was the last kufta with blueberries for dessert. Daughter ate rice and leftover salmon for her dinner.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A quiet day without any drama
- Piano lessons
- Phone calls with family and friends
- The garden in which to walk
- A warm house
Today's joyful activity was playing the piano.
Plans for tomorrow include a possible gift exchange with one of my aunts and cousins (they have said they will drop off gifts at my front door) and some housework.
How was your Tuesday? What are your plans for Wednesday?
