The baby gifts my daughter crocheted for her friend's baby. They are the first clothing items my daughter has crocheted and I think she did a great job. She said her friend had requested a bigger size of clothing than new born, so she followed instructions for a 6 months size for the jacket. She said her gifts were well received.
Yesterday, after I posted, I did some mending, cooked a shrimp curry, watched a couple of online videos, and relaxed. My daughter called me around 4:00 p.m. to let me know that she had returned from her friend's baby shower and I went and picked her up from her friend A's apartment.
By the time we came home, the party next door was going full swing. Over the course of the evening, it got louder and louder until my whole house was vibrating! Around midnight, one of the other neighbors (I think the lady who lives in the house behind them) drove over and threatened to call the police on them! Then, the volume was turned down, but, the party went on till the wee hours of the morning. I'm not a big fan of mariachi music, but, during the band's breaks, they played some other music that I liked - remixed rock and roll ("Rock Around the Clock", "Jail House Rock", "Wake Up Little Susie"), swing ("In the Mood"), and country ("Achy Breaky Heart" in Spanish) and my daughter and I danced! LOL.
Dinner was rice, shrimp curry, leftover dhal, and leftover mallung.
It's a sunny and warmer day, today (with an afternoon high of 82F). It's Fathers' Day and Juneteenth. We are relaxing (or, at least, I am; my daughter is busy making melon pan, a type of Japanese sweet bread). Earlier in the afternoon, we walked around the garden and daughter admired the vegetable plants and the fruit trees.
I'm planning to cook hamburgers for tonight's dinner.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Whoever it was who told the neighbors to turn down their music!
- Pleasant sunny weather
- Plums from the garden
- Blissful quiet with only bird song to hear
- Having my daughter home
Today's joyful activity has been relaxing at home with my daughter.
No firm plans for tomorrow. I told myself I won't do any housework, this week, but, I might go ahead and do a load of laundry, tomorrow.
How is your Sunday coming along?
