Today, I picked up the groceries at noon. By the time I came home, my daughter had left to help her friend with preparations for his Hollywood themed birthday party (being held outdoors and she will be fully masked the whole time; although our county's new case numbers have been below 1,000 for several days, now we are not sure if that is because fewer people are testing or there is less spread!)
I put away the groceries and then spent about an hour or so in the garage! Today, I spent a lot of time trying to clean two shelves at the bottom of the metal shelving units. Something had spilled and made quite a mess and the shelves were filthy! I will be posting some pictures of the garage, soon, but, not yet.
Eventually, it got too hot to be in the garage, so, I came in to the house, cooled off a bit, had something to eat, ran the dishwasher, and replied to blog comments. Then, I wrote up my March grocery shopping part 3 post, watches some cooking shows and the news, called my half-sister to wish her for her birthday, etc.
I received the phone call in the evening, informing me of friend A's mother's death. A's daughter had texted the news to my daughter who then called me to let me know. I called A and spoke with both her and her daughter. Her mother's passing was peaceful. Unfortunately, she passed away before her sons could come from Australia. A said one brother was arriving tomorrow, the other sometime next week. Afterwards, I called one of my cousins and friend R to give them the news (they both know A).
I haven't done much after that. I had leftovers for dinner and have been going through a box of files, shredding the old bank statements (cutting them with a pair of scissors, actually), while I wait for my daughter to come home.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Roses blooming in the garden
- Family and friends
- Sunny days and the promise of rain in the forecast
- What I was able to accomplish, today
Today's joyful activity was admiring the roses in the garden.
Plans for tomorrow include cooking and taking the food to friend A and, later in the evening, calling to find out if I need to report for jury duty on Monday!
How was your day? What are your plans for tomorrow?
