Another rainy day! More drizzle than rain, but, enough moisture to wet the ground and I'm happy!
Cousin V texted me in the morning to say that they were leaving San Diego earlier than planned due to the rain and should be home by 3:30 p.m., if I want to come over with the gifts. I texted her back and said that I had already dropped the gifts off at cousin R's house, last night. I hope R took the gifts over to V's house, in the evening!
Today, I washed the clothes that cousin R had given us. I think I need to buy another set of clothes hangers! In a comment on yesterday's post, June (Live and Learn-Toss and Turn) asked me if I make a note of new stuff coming into the house on my decluttering ledger. That's a very good question and the answer is, Yes! I keep track of new items coming in, at least when it comes to my clothing and household items! I don't keep track of items my daughter receives. I haven't reached the point of "1 in 1 out", yet, but, maybe I will get to that stage, one of these days. I haven't added the clothing items I received yesterday, yet, partly because I've forgotten which ones my daughter decided to keep for herself and which ones I chose to keep! But, once we sort through them, I will make a note of the items added to my closet! So far, since I posted this post about organizing my clothes closet in August, I have decluttered more items of clothing than I have added (at least 11 more items decluttered than received). That number will be much reduced by the time I add my share of yesterday's clothes, but, I don't think I'll be adding as many as 11 items!
Daughter and I had leftover fried rice for brunch and leftover rice and sausages for dinner (I cooked more green peas to have with them). After dinner, I ran the dishwasher and handwashed my teacups and the pots and pans.
Aunt C called in the afternoon and I had a long chat with her. Later, friend R called and we chatted a bit.
But, the majority of my day was spent crocheting the granny squares for the blanket I am making for my friend for Christmas and watching some videos online while I crocheted.
Today, I am grateful for:
- More rain!
- Working appliances
- Yarn from the stash
- Chatting with family and friends
Today's joyful activity was crocheting.
Plans for tomorrow include more crocheting and M's visit to tend to the garden.
How was your Thursday? What are your plans for Friday?
