Today, it was both sunny and warm! The daytime high was 83F which was quite nice! When I woke up in the morning, the temperature inside the house was 66F, which was a little cool for me; it was warmer outside, so I opened the windows and the front door to warm up the house! Tonight's low is supposed to be 54F.
After I said my morning prayers and drank my cup of tea, I went outside to walk for 20 minutes in the driveway. Afterwards, I did another load of laundry.
I spent the afternoon sewing, piecing together some "crumbs", which are the tiny bits of fabrics that are leftover from various other projects. I am making 8 1/2 inch by 8 1/2 inch blocks for now. I haven't quite decided what I am going to do with the pieced blocks, but they might become a quilt top or a table runner or something else! I just wanted to do some rather mindless sewing and crumb block are a good way to use up the stash!
Daughter made lunch us lunch, today:
|Lunch: Pad Thai made with Tofu Shirataki Noodles|
She made Pad Thai using tofu shirataki noodles with shrimp, peanuts, eggs, onions, garlic and other spices. It was delicious!
Later in the afternoon, daughter and I drove over to give friend R some of the tomato soup I had made, along with a piece of watermelon. R returned some of the containers I had given her when I've taken food to her. I would have taken her some corn bread, too, but, she has said she doesn't like corn bread.
After we came home, daughter decorated the house for Halloween! I don't have a lot of Halloween decorations, having decluttered them over the years. But, she spread around the few that I have and I need to renew the wreath which is starting to fall apart after being stored in the garage for a couple of years (I didn't decorate for Halloween, last year).
Still later, I trimmed daughter's hair.
For dinner, I made curry puffs with a packet of frozen puff pastry squares and the last of the ground turkey curry I had made, earlier in the week. I find myself finding excuses to bake in order to heat up the house, a little bit!
Today, I am grateful for:
- A sunny and warm day
- Being able to visit friend R
- Daughter making lunch
- Daughter decorating the house for Halloween
- A working oven
