|Grapes from S's Friend's Garden|
Neighbor S called me this afternoon to ask if I'd like to have some grapes from her friend's garden, they are sweet but have seeds in them. I said I'd love to have some. She brought me a bag of them; I tried a few and they are delicious. I saved some of the seeds to see if I can get them to grow! S is very considerate of the fact that I am still being very careful, so we were both wearing our masks even though we usually meet outside, at the door step. Today, however, I invited her in to take a look at the loquat seedlings she had given me (from her aunt's garden) earlier in the summer; they are growing in pots in the back yard and I led her through the house to the back yard. The loquat seedlings are growing well and should be big enough to plant in the ground, next year, I think.
I went to bed around 3:30 a.m., last night/this morning and woke up once at 9:00 a.m., turned off the porch lights, fed the cats (Dancer and Mama Cat), considered getting up for the day, but, decided to go back to bed, instead! LOL. It was late morning when I woke up for the second time!
It was a sunny day with an afternoon high of 80F. It was in the mid 70s outside when I woke up for the 2nd time and 64F inside the house! When I mentioned it to my daughter, she said it was colder inside my house than it was outside in Berkeley (65F)! LOL. I opened the windows and drapes and managed to warm up the house to 68F, before I closed the windows in the evening. It felt warm enough inside the house to be without a sweater for a couple of hours in the afternoon and then, I put on my sweater, again! LOL!
Today, was laundry day! I know I usually do laundry on Mondays, but, I am planning to go for my Covid booster on Monday and I am not going to do any housework after that! I refuse! LOL! I did a load of laundry including my bed sheets, first, and then, another load with the family room sofa dust sheets and the crocheted blanket/throw that I have on the sofa. I put the spare set of dust sheets on the sofas and I remade my bed with flannel sheets! I added another blanket to the quilts on the bed and, I should be nice and warm at night, I think. Later, I put away the dried laundry, chatted with friend R, and spoke with cousin V and sympathized with her husband on his sister's death.
Brunch was the leftover stir-fried spaghetti pasta. Dinner was ground turkey keema curry and rice:

There's leftover curry and rice for tomorrow's dinner, as well.
Daughter did some shopping, today, including her grocery shopping for the week. This is her drawing for Saturday:
