Today, my daughter and I visited cousin V, to wish her twin daughters a happy birthday and to spend a little time with one daughter's two young sons (2+ and 4+ years old). V had a family get together, last night, which we didn't attend because we didn't feel comfortable being with that big a group. But, this morning, V called and said they missed us, yesterday, and asked if we were free to stop by in the afternoon. So, we went there in the afternoon, intending to stay only for a short while, but, then, they asked us to stay and have a late lunch, and cousin R arrived while we were there and, a little later, cousin P and her daughter dropped by, too! So, it became an afternoon spent in the company of cousins, which was really pleasant, although a little nerve wracking because of the virus. Daughter and I had worn our masks, but, we removed them to eat and, afterwards, it seemed weird to put them back on, so we kept them off. I hope there won't be any cause to regret doing so! V sent a container with cake, baklava, and homemade marshmallows home with us!
After we came home, I chatted with neighbor T and friend R, condoled with another friend who lost her father, earlier this morning, and watered the back garden, including Clark who was potted up on Friday:
I also picked 4 okra and 12 moringa pods! That's the most moringa I've picked, so far; there are a few more pods maturing on the tree, but, I think we are coming to the end of the moringa harvest.
Afterwards, I cooked a mackerel curry and reheated the last packet of stringhoppers I had in the freezer for dinner. Later, we ordered some groceries.
It had been a warm day, with a high of 96F! It is supposed to be cooler, tomorrow, with a possibility of rain in the forecast!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Spending time with my cousins and their families
- A safe drive to V's house and back
- Water for the garden
- Harvesting vegetables from the garden
- Being able to order groceries online
Today's joyful activity was visiting my cousins.
Plans for tomorrow include picking up the groceries I ordered.
