|Dancer Claims a Basket|
I woke up once at 7:00 a.m. on Friday morning, after less than 3 hours of sleep; I turned off the porch lights, fed Dancer, considered getting up, but, decided I needed more sleep and went back to bed! The second time I woke up, it was almost 11:30 a.m.! I had had 7 hours of sleep and I figured that was good enough. By the time I had got dressed, put out food for Mama Cat who was no where to be seen, and fed Dancer for a second time (he acted as if he had not been given his breakfast at 7:00 a.m.), it was noon and half the day was gone!
In the afternoon, I started the car and let it run for about 15 minutes, while I brought out two resin chairs that I had stored in the garage and washed them. M had stood on the other resin chair that I had out, earlier, when he trimmed the passionfruit vine last Friday and it broke. I placed the two chairs in the area near the passionfruit vine trellis to be used as patio chairs. I need to find a small table to use as a patio table (my patio table broke several years ago and I didn't replace it).
|Fruit Salad for Brunch|
Afterwards, I made a fresh fruit salad for brunch, using the last banana, half an apple, some mango, the pulp from a passionfruit, and some almonds.
Then, I spent the rest of the afternoon playing with fabric. While I did that, I watched some online videos and the evening news.
I had a corned beef sandwich around 5:00 p.m. and drank a cup of tea.
Later, at 7:00 p.m., after I had finished watching the evening news, I put water to the garden, both front and back. I saw where Mama Cat was hiding, near the side wall, among the succulents growing there. She didn't seem hurt and came out to drink some water, but, didn't seem interested in eating. Oh, well, the bowl of food is there for her if she decides to eat, later.
It was 8:00 p.m. when I finished watering and went inside. I warmed up some of the leftover spaghetti and sauce for my dinner, chatted with friend R who called, and watched a few more online videos. Then, video chatted with my daughter and exchanged emails with a friend.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The car started without any problems!
- Water for the garden
- The handful for ripe chilies I harvested from the garden
- Fans, electricity, working appliances
- Phone calls, emails, blogs, and video chats
Today's joyful activity was playing with fabric!
Today's high was 96F with 19% humidity. Now, at almost 2:30 a.m., it is 75F with 50% humidity. In the meantime, 75F was the high in Berkeley.
No big plans for tomorrow. If it is cool enough in the morning when I wake up, I will vacuum the house. If not, I will relax and maybe do some sewing.
How was your Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
