Another warm day on Friday with a high of 94F. I loved it, of course. I responded to blog comments, watched some online videos, played a few sudoku games, watered the houseplants, cleaned the litter box, checked on the garden, did the dishes (some by hand, the rest in the dishwasher), scrubbed the stove top including under the burners, and mopped the kitchen. I also called my doctor's office to find out if they received the scan results, but, they said not yet. The nurse I spoke with said she'll call the hospital on Monday to follow up. If I don't hear from her by Tuesday, I will call her on Thursday (the doctor's office is closed on Wednesday as she goes to another location on Wednesdays).
In the early evening, gardener M tended to the garden. He bought me a tomato plant. He said that he received a discount because the plant was a bit wonky and didn't want me to pay him back for it! He planted it in the same planting bed as the moringa tree; the bed had recently been cleared of all the self seeded wildflowers that had finished flowering. The tomato plant already has two tiny tomatoes and I'm hoping there will be more over the summer. I believe it is an Early Girl tomato. Last year, I got a good crop of tomatoes from the Early Girl plant.
Later in the evening, friend A called and so did friend R.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Warm, sunny days
- M gifting me a tomato plant and tending to the garden for me
- Water for the garden
- What I was able to accomplish
- Phone calls from friends
Today's joyful activity was walking around the garden and checking on the plants.
Ignore the $19.99 written on the pot! This is a recycled pot that was in the shed. But, the apple seedling was grown from an apple seed that I had planted! I planted a few seeds and two sprouted, but, only one has made it. The seeds were from a gala apple or fuji apple, but, most apple trees are grafted and there is no guarantee that a tree grown from a seed will bear fruit that is true to the apple it was taken from, but, that is fine with me. I don't even know if the seedling will grow into a fruit bearing tree! But, it is fun to grow it from seed, isn't it? Have you grown an apple tree from a seed?
No big plans for tomorrow. It is supposed to be another warm day, although a bit cooler than today. I might relax and do some sewing for fun (there are those cat blocks waiting to be made into something).
How was your Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
