|Gata (Armenian Pastries)|
Neighbor S called me, this morning, and said her husband had bought some pastries from a bakery and would I like to have some. I said, "Yes, please" and she brought over the entire box! Oh, my! I froze half of them to share with my daughter, when she comes down, next (mid-June, if all goes well). Then, I enjoyed a couple of them for my brunch! They were so good!
Today was a cooler day than yesterday, with a high of 87F. Yet another barefoot, sockless day for me! LOL.
Neighbor T called for our weekly Sunday chat and later, friend R called, too. My daughter called to say she was going to the fabric store to buy some yarn and asked if I wanted anything; I asked her to buy me some basic sewing thread, two reels of white and a reel of black, which she will bring down when she next visits.
In the afternoon, I set up my sewing machine on the dining table and treated myself to an afternoon of rather mindless sewing, piecing together small bits of scrap fabric to make blocks of "crumb" pieced patches. I've more or less finished all the smaller (less than 4-inches square) pieces of fabric that I had. What I am now left with are two baskets full of bigger pieces of scrap fabric! I don't want to use the bigger pieces of fabric for a crumb quilt; I'd rather use them for a different quilt top with larger patches, I think. Trimming the bigger pieces of fabric will result in more small scraps to be turned into crumb-pieced blocks!
In the evening, I watched news and, later, tried to catch a glimpse of the lunar eclipse. Unfortunately, a neighbor's overgrown pine tree blocked my view of the moon while the eclipse took place. By the time the moon rose above the pine tree, it was no longer eclipsed! Oh, well.
In the night, I video chatted with my daughter, as usual. She did her meal prep and cooking today:
|Daughter's Meal Prep: a sweet potato and kale dish and a soup|
She had bought a 1 lb. bunch of kale and a type of Japanese sweet potatoes (she told me the name, but, I forgot what it was called); so both dishes have kale in them.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Neighbor S bringing me treats!
- Another warm day
- Phone calls and chats with neighbors, friends, and my daughter
- My fabric stash!
- A working sewing machine
Today's joyful activity was playing with fabric!
- Spot water the back garden (fruit trees and newly planted seedlings)
