|More Zucchini, Anyone?|
Today, I took the last dose of the antiviral medication. Now, let's hope it does what it is supposed to do and I can feel the effects sooner rather than later! It has been another pain-free day and, although I spent most of the day in bed, I did walk around the house a little bit!
Today's high light was the second zucchini harvest! M was here in the early evening to tend to the garden and he picked eight more zucchini! Plus a peach that had fallen. He tried a piece of daughter's peach pie and said it was very good.
While I was standing by the backdoor, talking to M, we noticed that the serrano chilli plant had been nibbled on and one of the tomato plant cages had fallen over. I also noticed the white bunny hopping away from that area when M went to raise the tomato cage - wonder if that was just a coincidence! Hey, Bun-Bun, the chilli plant and tomato plants aren't meant for you! I wonder if it is time for a scarecrow to make an appearance in the garden? Would the neighbor's rabbit pay any attention to one?
We are very pleased with the zucchini harvest, so far! What an abundance! Such a blessing! Not only do we have some homegrown vegetables for ourselves, we are able to share with our friends, too! So far, our offers of zucchini and peaches have been accepted with pleasure.
I grated some of the zucchini that was picked earlier in the week and froze them, in packages containing two cups of grated zucchini each. It is at times like these that I wish I had a second freezer! I've also read that you can dehydrate zucchini, and while I don't have a dehydrator, I could try dehydrating them in the oven.
Lunch had been a cold cuts sandwich that daughter made for me before she had to attend a training workshop that lasted most of the afternoon. Dinner was rice, chicken curry, broccoli, and sliced zucchini that had been steamed for two minutes in the microwave - it was crisp, yet tender, and I think I've discovered a new favorite way to have zucchini! Dessert was a slice of peach pie!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Finishing the course of antiviral medication without any noticeable adverse side effects
- Another pain free day
- The garden bounty!
- M tending to the garden
- My daughter tending to me
Today's joyful activities included harvesting the zucchini and being able to offer some of the garden bounty to friends.
No firm plans for the weekend; I'm still taking it one day at a time. But, I hope I might be able to do some knitting, tomorrow.
How was your Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
