It felt like a summer day, today, with an afternoon high of 94F! But, inside the house, it was cool enough in the morning (70F) that I wore a light cotton cardigan until the house warmed up!
M was here, this morning, and he brought in the green yard waste bin in for me and we agreed that I should set the bins in front of my driveway, next time. He watered the garden, sprayed the parkway with some weed killer, and trimmed some plants. He will continue to lay the pavers in the parkway on Friday.
I had planned to do some housework, today, but, instead, I just relaxed to the point of being lazy! I replied to blog comments (thank you for all your kind comments; I appreciate everyone taking the time to read and comment), read and commented on a few blogs, watched news and some TV programs, played sudoku and some word games, chatted with friend R and with Aunt C, and took it easy!
I had peanut butter on toast for brunch. For dinner, I made over the last of the turkey and vegetable soup I had made. I had blended the leftover soup, earlier, and had it like that a couple of times. Today, I used the leftover blended soup as the liquid to cook a pot of rice! It made a very tasty rice, which I ate with half a leftover sausage, cut up, and a handful of frozen green peas, warmed up. Now, I have leftover souped up rice! LOL. I ate a fresh mango for dessert. Or, maybe I should call it a salad because I sprinkled salt and chili powder on the mango!
After dinner, I did the dishes and scrubbed the kitchen sink.
Later, I video chatted with my daughter. She felt fine, today. She is planning to go and get her Covid booster, tomorrow! Hope the side effects will be mild!
Today, I am grateful for:
- M helping me with the garden
- Daughter is feeling fine, again
- Time to relax!
- A warm, summer-like day
Today's joyful activity was tending to the garden with M.
Plans for tomorrow (Thursday) include cleaning the rest of the family room!
