I was worried that the branch with all the peaches on it might break for the weight of the fruit as it was already hanging rather low on the tree, so, I tried to prop it up with a folding chair and knocked off three peaches! They were firm to the touch - seasoned, but, not quite ripe. No matter - I sliced half of one and added it to my salad for lunch (along with a few freshly picked blueberries):

Today's weather was what is known as May Gray, over here, when the marine layer moves inland and forms a cloud cover; the temperatures drop and it is overcast and gray, until the late afternoon sun burns off the marine layer. May Gray is a precursor to June Gloom.
I woke up with a cramp in my left calf muscle, this morning, and there has been on and off tightening of the calf muscle all day. I might have been dehydrated, so, I've been trying to drink more water. But, I changed my mind about vacuuming, today, as I didn't want to risk aggravating the cramping. Instead, I took it easy and cleaned three of the kitchen drawers and tidied two of the kitchen cabinets. I made the appointment for the blood tests my primary care physician wanted me to do prior to my appointment with her, next week, did some paperwork, cleaned the litter box, and ordered groceries to be picked up, tomorrow, but, I didn't feel like playing with fabric, so I didn't. Cousin P called me in the afternoon and we had a nice chat (she's adjusting to living in Florida), chatted with friend R in the evening, and video chatted with my daughter.
Brunch had been a salad, but, I was hungry by tea time, so I had a shredded pork sandwich with my cup of tea. Dinner was a bowl of ham and split pea soup and cookies for dessert!
Today, I am grateful for:
- The cramping didn't get worse
- M tending to the garden
- Being able to schedule appointments and order groceries online
- Chats with family and friends
- What I was able to accomplish
Today's joyful activity was enjoying the first peaches from the tree, even if they weren't quite ripe, yet.
Wednesday's To Do List:
- Clean the kitchen/ continue tidying the drawers
