Warm on Saturday

Love!

On Wednesday, M cleared the vegetable/wildflower planting bed and yesterday (Friday), I asked him to remove the wire mesh we had put around it.  The wire mesh was reused around the other half of the bed where we planted the okra seeds and replaced the caution tape I had put, earlier - hopefully, the wire mesh will keep out the neighbor's bunny from eating the okra seedlings!  Later in the evening, when I looked outside, I saw that M had rearranged the edging around the former vegetable/wildflower bed to form a heart shape!  Isn't it cute?  I took the picture this afternoon.  The stick you can see in the middle of the heart is the trunk of the moringa plant which I thought had died over the winter, but, which has put out a new leaf!  Hopefully, it will continue to grow!

It has been a nice, warm day, today, with a high of 86F!  My kind of weather!  

I've had another good day.  Today, I took the kitchen trash to the big trash can outside and checked the mail!  Then, I took the picture above, took a short walk in the back garden, and picked two peaches.  These are things I used to do without thinking twice about it, but, these days, they are big accomplishments and I am savoring each and every step!  

My daughter's friend A visited in the afternoon.  She brought a tiramisu cake to share:

A Piece of Tiramisu Cake

We gave A a bag of zucchini to take home.      

I spent most of the afternoon sewing, repairing the quilt.  While I sewed, I watched some videos. 

Today, I am grateful for:
- Another good day and being able to do a few more things
- Daughter was able to have a fun afternoon with her friend A
- A walk in the garden
- Fresh peaches
- Phone calls with family and friends

Today's joyful activity was walking in the garden.

Plans for tomorrow include more sewing!  

How was your Saturday?  What are your plans for Sunday?

  1. What a sweet thing for M to do.
    Bunnies and squirrels are my nemesis. mmmm - Just wondering if the spelling of nemesis is both singular and plural. Need to check that out.

    Oh gosh. I love tiramisu and that looks delicious. I bet it was yummy.

    1. It was a very sweet thing for him to do, wasn't it? Not too many squirrels here (I think the garden cats keep them away), but, the cats leave the bunny alone! I think they've accepted it as one of them! LOL. I think the plural of nemesis is nemeses.

      Tiramisu is my daughter's favorite cake, too, and it was delicious!

  2. The heart was a nice little surprise that M left you! He is a treasure.
    After several days in the 90's, we only got in the 70's yesterday. That's my kind of weather. :)

    1. It was a really sweet little surprise! :) I'm glad it cooled down a bit for you. You have the humidity to deal with in addition to the heat, don't you? That always makes it worse, I think. Today's forecast says we'll have a high of 87F with 40% humidity.

  4. Oh, I love the heart shaped flower bed. Have you thought about what you'll grow in there?

    I'm glad your daughter was able to spend time with her friend. A visit from a friend is lovely but one bearing tiramisu cake is even more welcome! It did amuse me that she left with a supply of zucchini ... I know how my friends and family are always looking for people keen to relieve them of their surplus.

    Also, I so pleased to read that you continue to be pain free and have managed to do a few things around the house and was able to walk in the garden.

    1. Thank you, Eileen. I don't want to jinx it, but, I'm grateful I've had a string of pain free days and hope it continues!

      I haven't decided what to grow in the heart shaped bed, other than the moringa tree that is already growing there. No doubt, next year, there will be some self-seeded wildflowers growing all around that area!

      Ha, ha, all willing takers will receive zucchini from my garden! It is a shame that I'm not quite as able to do things this year when my garden is being so abundant! I'm hoping that I will still manage to preserve some of this year's harvest!

  5. I like the heart shaped flower bed but I must admit my eyes were drawn down to the photo of the Tiramisu cake!
    It is warm and sunny here. I hope you continue to have just the level of warmth you enjoy. 86°F sounds just right!

    1. Oh, that cake was delicious! :D It's another warm day, here, and I am loving it! The house stays at least 10 degrees cooler than the temperature outside, so, it's quite comfortable for me. :)

  6. so interesting how little things that we once took for granted, come to mean so much. Peaches - fresh and home grown - to me thats also a big treat

    1. It really is, Ratnamurti - somethings like brushing your teeth while standing at the bathroom sink, or boiling some water to make your cup of tea! I'm so grateful that my daughter is home with me to help me - I don't know how I would have managed if she wasn't here!

  7. I hope your moringa tree grows well.
    I have two, not in very good shape, so last week I fertilized both. Now one looks almost dead and the other has a very thin moringa pod. :)

    1. Thank you, Nil. How exciting that one of your moringa trees has a pod! :)
