It was a good day.
I got the rare treat of getting to putter. I got to repot a plant, to rearrange and clean my entire plant area and to deep clean the top of my china cabinet. It is only recently that I've gotten out of being in the "emergency mode" cleaning that I've been stuck in for years. All this puttering time was courtesy of Dd10 who flatly refused my help this morning and then had a meltdown because I was not helping and then when I did help her, showed no appreciation at all for the help I gave her. But I was still basking in the glow of having gotten to putter with my plants and rag and was able to keep my sense of humor and my patience!
In addition to that, we got all of my to-do list tackled: kids were educated, meals were prepared, errands run and laundry sorted and washed. I had to go to the grocery store yet again because eating all these extra vegetables means that I have to keep stocking my pantry and crisper! I now have the ingredients for the vegetable soup that I want to make tomorrow.
I Zumba'd tonight. It was awesome like usual. My left quad aches. I've already put in a request for my husband to stretch me out since I am so tight that I can't stretch myself.
There is a slight somber note to a good day. When I went to pick up my ds15 from taekwando, the apartment building next to his class was on fire. I counted at least 5 fire trucks plus aid cars and police. We had to go a roundabout way to get home so as to not get in the way of the firefighters. I am praying for both residents and responders.
ETA - Local news reports no injuries, 60 people displaced from the apartment building. I guess after I went by, flames did start to shoot through the roof.
