|Raindrops on Roses|
We had lots of rain last night and early this morning. Then, around 11:00 a.m., the rain ceased quite abruptly, as if someone turned off the shower. I went out to bring in the trash cans once it stopped raining and I took a couple of photos, including the one above.
Today was a low energy day for me. I felt cold even with the heater on (I am all bundled up, too, with a long sleeved blouse and two sweaters, a pair of sweat pants, socks, and a scarf) and I didn't feel like doing any housework. I did polish two of the three brass items I had wanted to polish and put them back in place (they are wall plaques). Later, I mended an article of clothing for M.
I played Sudoku and some word games, watched a few online videos, chatted with friend R, and, highlight of the day, sang online karaoke with my daughter! I sang very out of key, but, it was fun!
I had half a bagel, toasted, with butter, for breakfast and for lunch, I made some fried rice with leftover rice, the last leftover Italian sausage, some shredded lettuce, and an egg scrambled into it. My daughter said it was tasty. For dinner, I followed my meal plan. I asked my daughter to make a teriyaki sauce, which she did, following a recipe she found online. Then, I cooked a pot of rice, made a stir fry with carrots and some homegrown snow peas that I had frozen, and reheated some chicken drumsticks that I had previously sauteed and frozen. I added some of the teriyaki sauce that daughter had made to the chicken drumsticks and it made a good dinner. There is one portion leftover for lunch for one of us. I had listed mandarins for dessert, but, I cut up a mango and we shared that, instead.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Rain for the garden (although it has caused quite a lot of damage in various parts of the state)
- A working heater
- Hot water on tap
- My daughter is able to work remotely from home
- Being able to have a relaxed day
Today's joyful activity was singing with my daughter!
Plans for tomorrow include tending to the garden with M, doing a load of laundry, and tidying the family room.
How was your Tuesday? What are your plans for Wednesday?
