|Napoleons and Fruit Skewers
Today has been another relaxed day. I had a phone call from my half-sister in the morning, checking on me, and we chatted for a little bit. It had been our father's death anniversary a couple of days ago; although neither of us mentioned it (it's been 58 years since father died), I felt that was part of the reason why she called me today.
In the afternoon, daughter and I painted a little more. I am still working on the painting I started yesterday, while daughter began (and completed) another one! She is working painting number three, right now!
In the early evening, neighbor S brought over some goodies - Napoleons, fruit skewers, and two pieces of ice cream cake. The weather was so hot, the ice cream had started to melt by the time she walked over from her house across the street to mine! Daughter had a piece of the ice cream cake, right away, but, I put the second piece in the freezer for later. I gave S the three zucchini we picked, yesterday. She said she was going to make some soup with them.
Dinner was gyoza (potstickers) from the freezer. Afterwards, I did the dishes, cleaned Dancer's litter box, chatted with friend R, and relaxed doing some online sudoku.
Today, I am grateful for:
- My sister calling to check on me
- S bringing us more goodies!
- Zucchini to share with S!
- Frozen food
- Electric fans
Today's joyful activity was painting with my daughter.
Plans for tomorrow include tending to the garden with M and watching the Olympics Opening Ceremonies.
How was your Thursday? What are your plans for Friday?
