Well, it seems that I've reassured Blogger that I am not a robot, after all! Last night, it stopped asking me to prove that I wasn't a robot and hasn't asked me even once, today!
Yesterday, after I posted on the blog, I took a jar of marmalade, some muffins, and chocolates to friend R and she shared some frozen parathas that she had bought! It was a lovely afternoon, with the temperature hovering around 80F! Later, I watered the back yard.
Dinner, last night, was leftover baked chicken. I cooked a boxed rice/wild rice mix that I had in the pantry to go with it and some Brussels sprouts (along with the leftover broccoli):

Today, has been another warm and sunny day. Daughter woke up before I did and she opened all the windows to let in the fresh morning air and fed the garden cats for me. Then, she spent the rest of the day attending online meetings!
I spent a relaxed morning, responding to blog comments and reading and commenting on other blogs. I was delighted to see that I didn't have to prove that I wasn't a robot! LOL.
In the afternoon, I finished crocheting the border around the granny square blanket and started weaving in all the yarn ends and tidying it up. That is my least favorite task when knitting or crocheting.
I also spent some time in the garden, just checking on the plants, picking a couple of oranges, and taking a few photos of the front garden:
Mid afternoon is probably not the best time to photograph the front garden as the glare from the sun was a bit strong. The bed in the foreground, along the driveway, is looking a bit bare after I pulled out all the old osteospermum plants. Seedlings are growing, but, they are taking their own sweet time to fill in the empty spaces.
However, the succulents in the circle (beyond the eucalyptus tree) and along the side wall are doing well:
