|Friday's Harvest: Oranges, Passionfruit, & |
Broccoli Side Shoots
Today, I picked some oranges and broccoli side shoots from the garden. There were two small fruits that were ripe on the passionfruit vine (they had already formed when the vine was bought), too, and I picked them so my daughter can enjoy them before she leaves.
There was about a teaspoonful of pulp in each half. Maybe, next year, we will get a few bigger fruits with more pulp in them to enjoy.
Today, I washed all the new-to-us clothes that cousin R had given us, as well as the regular laundry. Then, I tried on some of the new clothes and picked out 12 new tops to add to my wardrobe! Do I need 12 new tops? No, of course, I don't! It wasn't that long ago that I decluttered my closet, because I felt I had too many items of clothing! At the same time, it is hard to decline free clothing! I will be going through my closet, again, however, to see if I can release a few more items, perhaps things I've had for several years.
Daughter has already picked a few of the new clothes to take up with her. The rest will be kept in her closet, to be worn on future visits home and/or to take up with her on future visits.
Today, we had more leftover Thai food for brunch. I cooked some salmon for dinner, sauteed with onions and tomatoes, and cooked rice and the broccoli side shoots that I picked today for the sides.
|The Roofed Patio|
This is the patio with the roof panels that flapped in the wind, the other night. You can almost see one of the two edging stones that my daughter set on top of the panels on the near edge. M was unable to buy the nails before he came to tend to the garden, today. But, he hopes to be able to buy them over the weekend. Today, he fertilized some of the fruit trees and watered the garden for me. He also brought some chocolate bunnies for us and a package of ghost pepper roasted cashews for my daughter! A word of warning - ghost pepper cashews are very hot!
Today, I am grateful for:
- New to us clothes
- Working appliances (washer and dryer)
- Electricity to run them
- Garden produce
- M tending to the garden for me
Today's joyful activity was trying on and picking new to me clothes.
Plans for tomorrow include enjoying daughter's last day at home!
