|Rescued Chrysanthemum Plants|
M planted the rescued chrysanthemum plants for me, this morning. There were six plants (two purple, two yellow, and two bronze) and he decided that they didn't need to have the flowers cut off, yet. I chose to have them planted in the back garden, next to the one chrysanthemum plant I currently have, in front of the lemon tree we pruned back, earlier. This planting area is by the side of the garage:

It was a sunny, clear day, today, with an afternoon high of 63F. It was 60F inside the house when I woke up and not much warmer outside! I switched the heater on with the thermostat set at 70F and once it switched itself off, I turned the heater off. Then, I kept it off until the evening and switched it back on.
M planted the mums and tidied up the garden a little bit. He didn't have to water the garden today, thanks to all the rain we had yesterday! LOL.
My daughter called me in the afternoon to say she was at the airport and while she was on the phone with me, an alarm went off in the airport and they made an announcement that the fire department has been called out, but, everything seemed to be OK and they didn't need to evacuate, but, they'll let people know if anything changes. We got off the phone, so she could better hear what they were saying. Then, she texted me that the alarm went on and off a couple of times but had been turned off, eventually and she saw some fire fighters walking by rather casually, so it might have been a false alarm. Anyway, she boarded her flight without any problem and has just arrived at the San Francisco airport (around 9:15 p.m., Pacific Standard Time). She still has to get herself back to her apartment in Berkeley; she asked me if she should take public transit (subway and bus) or call for a ride and I told her to take a ride share, which she did.
I did some paperwork, today, finished mending the grey sweater (hands didn't cramp, this time!) and walked in the driveway for a few minutes. Chatted with friend R in the evening and watched news. Tonight's low is going to be 43F, they said, but, tomorrow's high will be 68F.
I had leftover fried rice from yesterday for my brunch, today. Dinner was more of the frozen potstickers/gyoza!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter had a safe flight back
- M bringing me the rescued mums and planting them
- A working heater
- Warm clothes and blankets (I'm still wearing layers, even with the heater set at 70F)
- All the rain we received and a sunny day, today
Today's joyful activity was being in the garden and supervising the planting of the new plants!
Plans for tomorrow include doing some laundry and vacuuming.
How was your Wednesday? What are your plans for Thursday?
