|Just Picked Peaches|
I picked about two dozen ripe peaches, today. There are perhaps another dozen or so peaches left on the tree and that is the extent of this year's peach harvest. Nothing much, compared to previous years, but, I am grateful for each and every peach I am harvesting. It is truly a blessing to be able to harvest fresh produce from the garden. I plan to can these in a sugar syrup so that my daughter can enjoy them when she next visits.
Today has been a somewhat productive day. I vacuumed the house in the late morning, put away the laundry from yesterday (I hung them up inside the house to dry, overnight), cleaned the stove vent hood, made some phone calls, checked on friend A, chatted with friend R, spoke with aunt C, chatted with neighbor T, cleaned the bathroom and Dancer's litter box, checked on the garden, and harvested the peaches (as well as some broccoli side shoots and a handful of blueberries). M had requested the day off so he could enjoy a long weekend over Memorial Day; he had watered the garden on Wednesday and I think it can wait until Sunday to be watered, again.
I made a salad for brunch and had leftover pizza from the freezer for dinner.
Later, I video chatted with my daughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Peaches from the garden
- The rest of the garden produce - broccoli and blueberries, etc.
- Working appliances
- Chats with family and friends
- What I was able to accomplish
Today's joyful activity was picking peaches!
Plans for tomorrow include canning peaches!
How was your Friday? What are your plans for Saturday?
