I picked five peapods from the garden, this afternoon!
There are 12 pea plants, some are snow peas and the others are snap peas, but, I'm just picking them while they are still tender pods to add to a stir fry! I left three or four small peapods on the vines to grow a little bigger before picking them.
Today, cousin P called me, twice in the morning. She asked me to come over as she had something to give me. Although I've said I didn't need anything, I went over, anyway, and collected the blouse, bed sheet, and hat she had to give me. I don't need them, but, I guess the donations pick up people have been to her house already and collected whatever items she had to give and these are items she was unable to give them. Rather than trash them, she decided to give them to me to be dealt with as I pleased.
After I came home, I started on the laundry ("Wash on Monday"). I washed and dried the blouse and the sheet (and pillowcases) that P had given me, along with the rest of my laundry; I think I will add the items she gave me to the donations pile so someone who needs them more can have them (my donations will be picked up on the 22nd). I have also decided that, starting in the new year, I will implement a one in/one out system.
In between loads of laundry (I did four loads, today, including the sofa dust covers), I watered the newly planted vegetable plants in the garden and took some photos of the garden for a later post, took the trash cans to the curb for pick up in the morning, did dishes, watered the houseplants, and did a little tidying up. I also did a little bit of embroidery on a gift that I am making and wrapped up a few gifts. Later in the evening, I called friend R and checked on her.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The peapod harvest
- Time spent in the garden
- Working appliances
- My stash of embroidery thread
- Having my daughter home for the holidays
Today's joyful activity was making another holiday gift.
Plans for tomorrow include tidying up the family room and making some preparations for Christmas.
