Well, maybe not that chilly, but, it was definitely a bit cool! M said it was 37F in his area when he went outside, early Friday morning. I waited until afternoon, when it was warmer, to go outside.
By the way, for those of you who say you should have eaten breakfast before reading my posts, this is an alert that this post might contain a food picture! Consider yourselves warned! LOL.
Friday was a good day! I did a load of laundry, swept the bathroom, cleaned the kitchen floor, did a load of dishes, transferred some gardening-related items from the garage to the shed, decluttered a few items, called and checked on neighbor T (she's very sore, she said, and black and blue from the bruises), called friend S, chatted with friend R, too, did a little gardening with M when he was here in the evening (we dug up a spadeful of the phacelia seedlings from near the moringa tree and transplanted them in a spot near the back wall to see if they will grow there), and ordered groceries!
In between, from time to time, I watched news, because there is a lot going on in our world right now, and in a way, we are all eye witnesses to history! I am blessed in that I can witness it from a distance, from the safety and comfort of my home, and not have to experience it first hand.
Daughter and I had leftover dolma for brunch, today. In the evening, I decided to make a small pot of soup. There was a small container of leftover pork pot roast that needed to be finished. But, first, I needed some broth, so, I took out a packet of chicken bones from the freezer and boiled that to make the broth. Then, I added a carrot, a potato, some bell pepper pieces, the leftover pork roast, half a can of red kidney beans, a handful of frozen corn, a couple of cloves of garlic, some sliced onion, a couple of kale leaves chopped up, salt and pepper, and a couple of teaspoons of tomato paste and let it all simmer:
