Another sunny day with an afternoon high of 73F.
It's been a good day, today. A friend of mine called in the morning and we chatted for a bit. Later, I called friend R and spoke with her.
M got delayed at the dentist's office, but he eventually showed up around noon and tended to the garden. He brought me a persimmon someone had picked from their tree and given him and he brought me a cutting of a sedum which he potted up so it could root. We transplanted my apple seedling and pineapple plant to bigger pots and cut back one of the oleander bushes. I offered him a bowl of soup, but, he had another garden or two to do and was running behind schedule, so didn't want to take the time to stop for soup. Nor did he want it sitting in his truck all afternoon until he got home in the evening.
After M left, I did the rest of the vacuuming. Then, I did the last bit of paperwork that I had planned to do, cleared the files from the dining table. and put my autumn leaves table cloth on the dining table. After that, I tidied the family room and dusted it. Tomorrow, I plan to wash the sofa dust sheets.
Then, I put together a grocery order, but, I haven't finalized it yet. I want to discuss the order with my daughter, first, when we video chat tonight, as there might be one or two things she might want (besides half and half for her coffee!)
Brunch had been coconut roti with some of the corned beef mixture I had made; dinner was rice and the made over chicken stir-fry. Grapes and a piece of brownie for dessert.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Another sunny day and warm afternoon
- M tending to the garden and sharing a sedum cutting with me
- Roses in November
- Phone calls and emails from friends
- What I was able to accomplish
Today's joyful activity was gardening with M.
Plans for tomorrow include picking up the groceries, washing the sofa dust sheets, remaking my daughter's bed with fresh sheets, and tidying my bedroom, especially the desk and the top of the dresser ("Hi, my name is Bless and I can't keep horizontal surfaces cleared.")
