Sunny and windy, today! Today's high was 60F and tonight's low will be 38F according to the forecast.
Neighbor T's daughter K called this morning to let me know that a friend of hers will be coming down from Minnesota to stay at T's house for a few days and help K sort through some of the stuff and not to be too concerned if I should notice activity next door! I thought it was very considerate of her to let me know.
A short time later, M arrived to tend to the garden. He gave me an apple he had bought - it's a variety known as Opal apples. It's the first time I've eaten one and I found it to be quite delicious. Speaking of apples, this week's grocery ad states that apples are on sale for $0.99/lb. for Gala, Fuji, and Granny Smith apples. That's a good price for apples at this store (the ethnic market has Fuji apples on sale for $0.69/lb., but, they don't offer curbside pick up).
I spent the afternoon repairing the quilt and watching online videos while I sewed. Later in the evening, I watched news and a nature program on TV. The local news mentioned the case of a retired couple who received a gas bill of $2,000! Apparently, their previous month's bill was $700; they had direct payment set up, but, the payment didn't go through due to insufficient funds, so, now, the gas company wants the $2,000 bill to be paid in cash! I suppose I shouldn't complain about my $700 bill!
Brunch was a sandwich with sliced curried chicken as the filling, followed by the Opal apple. Dinner was spaghetti and meat sauce with a side salad of lettuce leaves picked from the garden.
Today, I am grateful for:
- M tending to the garden and bringing me an apple to try
- K giving me advance notice that someone will be staying at T's house over the next few days
- My gas bill was only $700 and not $2,000!
- Lettuce from the garden
- The electric space heaters and electricity to run them
Today's joyful activity was video chatting with my daughter.
Plans for tomorrow include some paperwork and tidying the kitchen.
