Guess who showed up at my back door for breakfast, this morning? Mama Cat was sitting by the door when I woke up, this morning, and even tried to help me open the door by pawing at it! I was SO happy to see her! I guess she is over whatever it was that was ailing her and was more or less back to her usual self! I gave her food and filled the big water bowl and she ate some of the kibble. Then, she disappeared, but, later, I saw that she was relaxing near the back gate, in the shade. I fetched the small bowls I had used to feed her when she was hiding under the plants in the front garden, rinsed them out, and filled them again for her, but, kept them near the back porch. She came to check them out, ate a little bit, and went to lie down, again. She came back to eat, much later, again, which is when I took the photo. The steps are wet because M washed them for me.
The morning was nice and cool. But, it warmed up in the afternoon. I spent the afternoon sewing my disappearing nine patches and planning the next step of the quilt. I will not be making the entire quilt top with disappearing nine patches. I want to incorporate some other patches I've pieced earlier. I'm not quite sure how that will work out, but, I think it will evolve as I sew.
In the evening, M arrived to tend to the garden. He watered the plants and tidied up the place a bit for me. I served him some of my bread with butter and peach jam. I warned him that the bread was a bit dry and dense and he replied, "Like me!" LOL.
Brunch had been some of the bread with a slice of cheese. Dinner was rice with the last of the chicken curry, dhal, and zucchini chutney. Snacks included an apple, the last of the chocolate wafers, and roasted cashew nuts.
I texted with cousin V, spoke on the phone with friend R, and video chatted with my daughter. Daughter also shared some pictures her friend had sent her of the new baby. In one of them, she is shown wearing the Pikachu hat my daughter crocheted for her! So cute!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Mama Cat seems to have recovered
- M helping me with the garden
- Water for the garden
- Keeping in touch with family and friends
- Electricity to operate the appliances (fans, sewing machines, irons, TV, etc.)
Today's joyful activity was sewing on my patchwork!
How was your Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
