|Saturday's Harvest: A Zucchini, a Passionfruit, a Tomato, and an Okra|
Thank you, everyone, on your lovely comments on yesterday's post. Snowball is missed. Mama Cat, who is the other garden cat, is missing her companion, I think. She was sitting by herself, looking rather forlorn, in the driveway, not coming to the back yard where I keep the cats' water dish and eating the dry cat food I had put out for her. In the end, I took a fresh bowl of water and a bowl of dry food out to the front for her and she drank the water quite thirstily. But, she didn't eat the dry food. So, I put some of Dancer's tuna in another dish and took it out to her and she ate that! Mama Cat is at least 10 years old; maybe the dry kibble is too hard for her. Never let it be said that I don't cater to the cats! LOL. The dry kibble in the back didn't go to waste; Percy the Possum had a feast!
I had a call from cousin V in the morning and we chatted for a bit. Later, I spoke with my daughter. In the afternoon, I relaxed, reading blogs, replying to blog comments, and playing several games of sudoku. I took the kitchen compost to the garden and harvested the above fruits and vegetables. A rather pitiful harvest, but, this is not the year of garden bounty.
In the evening, Aunt C called and we had a long chat. Afterwards, I called friend R to check on her and had a shorter chat. After which, I video chatted with my daughter! Later, I ran the dishwasher and cleaned the litter box. I also watched some online videos about gardening, organizing and decluttering, and hoarding.
Breakfast was a banana, lunch was an egg salad sandwich. Dinner was rice with the last of the ground turkey mixture I had cooked earlier and the lone okra.
Today's daytime high was 97F and tomorrow's is supposed to be 99F. I was quite comfortable with just a fan on.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Kind blog readers
- The garden harvest
- Chats with family and friends
- Emails and texts
- Restful days
Today's joyful activity was relaxing.
Plans for tomorrow include some cardmaking and playing with fabric.
How is your weekend coming along?
