It rained all night, Monday, and rained most of the day on Tuesday! Gentle rain for the most part, with occasional showers. But, there must have been some winds in the night or early morning hours because I found that the cover over the water heater vent pipe had blown off and fallen on the driveway! I picked it up and, hopefully, M can place it back on the vent pipe! I was worried that the water heater flame might have gone off, but, there is hot water on tap, so, I am assuming it is OK. The rain ceased in the afternoon and we had a couple of hours of beautiful sunshine before the sun set. Tonight's temperature, as I write this, is 39F (3.88 C). That is cold in my books!
I went outside a couple of times, in between rain showers, to retrieve the trash bins, once they had been emptied, and to collect the mail. Holiday greeting cards are starting to come in and I'm displaying them on the living room mantelpiece for now. Each card is a reminder that I haven't got my cards in the mail, yet!
Cousin V called me, today, and we chatted for a bit. Later, I called friend A and checked on her and called friend R to chat with her.
I had leftover ham and noodle casserole for lunch and cooked a chicken curry and a fresh pot of rice for dinner. My daughter made a cucumber salad to have with the rice and chicken curry. Afterwards, I washed the day's dishes.
But, once again, the major activity of the day was crocheting the border on the blanket I am making. It's almost finished, but, I still want to crochet one more border row.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Rain for the garden
- Not losing power due to the rain
- Phone calls with family and friends
- Hot water on tap
- A working heater
Today's joyful activity was crocheting.
Plans for tomorrow include M's visit to tend to the garden, finishing the blanket, and maybe setting up the Winter Village!
