Sunday morning apparently does not mean “sleep in” to my 13-year-old cat! My weekday alarm goes off at 5:15, so at 5:20 she was meowing away, to make sure I had not overslept-grr! In truth, I think Pele was just looking for a bit of attention. As I lay there with her, checking messages, I got a WhatsApp message from my younger son, who would be ready to Skype in 45 minutes.

After breakfast, I heard from a friend who wanted to meet for breakfast, too late, oh well. We made plans instead to meet up later in the afternoon. After getting some more work done I headed to the LRT to meet up with her and another friend. The walk from the train station was hot, hot, hot, so we cooled off in a coffee shop before braving the outdoors again for an open air market. We all stocked up on fruit and vegetable ( I paid less than $9 for 3 avocados, a big eggplant, squash, snow peas, asparagus, and 2 green peppers, so I was happy) as we dripped sweat. I wish I were one of those people who “glow”! The third person then wanted to go home so L. and I caught a ride with her to one of our favorite massage parlors (oh so prevalent here). After waiting for a few minutes we were in- 60 minutes of relaxation.
Now I am at home and the cat is wanting attention again, as I get still more work done and get out a quick slice. I think as I do so often, I am a lucky person! It has been a wonderful Sunday! Here’s to the week ahead.
