Another warm and sunny day. According to the forecast, we will be in the 80s this week. I approve!
It took me a little longer to get started, today, but, I managed to accomplish everything that was on my to do list for today! The family room has been dusted, tidied, and vacuumed! I also went through the last stack of mail and processed everything - tossed what I could and filed the rest. I still have another stack of papers (mostly insurance forms) on my desk to be filed, but, the stack of mail in the family room has been dealt with. Tidying the family room is one completed project crossed off my May projects list that I made for myself (next cleaning/organizing task on that list is my bedroom).
In addition to tidying the family room, I brought in my trash cans and neighbor T's trash cans (she called and asked if I could do that as a favor and I said yes, of course). Then, practiced the piano. Did a load of laundry (most of the knitted and crocheted blankets; couldn't do the one on my bed because, well, a certain kitty cat was sleeping on it and I didn't have the heart to disturb him!). Ran the dishwasher, watered the houseplants and replaced the burnt out light bulb near the back door. I also did a little knitting while I watched the evening news.
Later in the evening, I finished weeding that third flowerbed and watered the back garden. I've now weeded the three flower beds I had wanted to weed! I have decided to continue weeding and I've picked the planting bed where the peach tree is growing. The regular watering of the peach tree has encouraged the grass to grow in that planting bed!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter is feeling much better
- A sunny and warm day
- Getting my to do list done!
- Phone calls with friends
- Working appliances
Today's joyful activity was spending time in the garden, watering and weeding.
