What's that? Help myself?"

Chicken Little and Mama Cat on the back steps this morning.
It was a sunny day, today. M was here in the morning to tend to the garden and he brought me three celery seedlings - apparently, he had grown some celery, last year, which had self-seeded! He planted the seedlings for me, did some weeding, and fertilized the fruit trees.
I told him about the leaky trash bins and he asked if putting a large bin liner would help (we'd pour the water into the bin liner), but, I didn't think that would work and decided to recycle the trash bins. We put them one into the other and placed both in the big recycling bin to be collected, next week. I am going to count them as two of my decluttered items for this month!
I started on the shelving unit in the dining room, today. I gave my daughter one of the packets of chili powder and one of the packets of crushed dried chilies that I had been storing there and made room in one of the kitchen drawers for the other packets of chili powder and crushed chilies. I think what I really need to do is organize the pantry shelves to make room there, but, for now, I will look for some decorative storage containers to hold some of the items I'm storing in this shelving unit.
Later, in the evening, I called neighbor T to check on her and friend R.
Today, I made American style pancakes for brunch. I had mine with dhal and chicken curry gravy; daughter had hers with pancake syrup. For dinner, I made a keema curry with ground turkey, adding onion, celery, carrot, a little bit of bell pepper, the last bit of diced tomatoes from the can I opened earlier, and zucchini (yes, from that bumper crop of zucchinis from 2021 - I still have more in the freezer!) We had that with leftover rice and there's more for tomorrow's dinner.
I put in an order for groceries in the evening, after dinner. I needed more milk, half and half, bread, and some produce, as well as some rubber gloves and a bottle of antacids. I will pick up the groceries tomorrow afternoon.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A sunny day
- M's help with the garden
- M sharing celery seedlings with me
- Chats with friends and neighbors
- Being able to order groceries online
Today's joyful activity was gardening with M.
Plans for tomorrow include picking up the groceries and continuing with sorting the dining room shelving unit.
How was your Wednesday? What are your plans for Thursday?
