I finished my painting, this morning. Both daughter and I started off following a Bob Ross tutorial online, but, I veered off the tutorial midway and simplified the scene! The more I look at the painting, the more faults I find! By the way, that is supposed to be mist between the rows of trees in the background! Oh, well, I didn't set out to create a masterpiece! It was meant to be a fun activity to do together. I think we achieved that goal. My daughter was very amused by my comments during the tutorial as I had quite a few things to say about what we were being told to do! LOL!
Cousin P called me in the early afternoon and I chatted with her for a bit. I had just kept a pot of rice to boil and when it had finished cooking, I served her a plate of the Japanese food that daughter had cooked, yesterday, along with a bowl of the cream stew, and took them over to her to try. Later, she called my daughter to say the food was very tasty.
I spent the day relaxing and watching the coverage of the Olympics games on TV. My leg was a little twinge-y (probably from moving the bed and vacuuming, yesterday) and I didn't want to aggravate anything, so I took it easy. The only housework I did was wash the dishes.
The neighbors tested their amplifiers in the early afternoon, but, the party started at 5:00 p.m. We closed all the windows on that side of the house, including the family room window which looks out into the back yard. Only my bathroom window (on the other side of the house) was open for a little fresh air. Fortunately, today was not a very hot day; the daytime highs were only in the mid 80s. The ceiling fan was sufficient to keep us cool and comfortable. It is 12:40 a.m. as I type this and the music is still going full blast. Yes, it's noisy, and mariachi music is not my favorite type of music, but, it is a happy noise, not angry noise; for that, I am grateful!
We had ham sandwiches for brunch and leftovers from last night for dinner.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to share some of what daughter cooked with my cousin
- Doing a fun painting activity with daughter
- Working appliances
- Being able to watch the Olympics on TV
- The sound of exuberant music from next door!
Today's joyful activities included taking some lunch to my cousin and watching the games with my daughter.
Plans for tomorrow include doing some laundry and watching more of the games. We are looking forward to watching the women's gymnastics which will be shown tomorrow.
How was your Saturday? What are your plans for tomorrow?
