Hello everyone, i want to tell you how my day went yesterday being April 19, 2021. I usually use the week day Mondays as a day off from work. For yesterday, because it was a free day for me, i woke up by 6.30 am. The first thing i did was to pray. After that, i started arranging my beddings.

Then i went to the kitchen to wash the dishes.
By 8.00 am i got hungry and decided to prepare a little breakfast for myself made up of 3 packets of indomitables with only onion and tomatoes.
I quickly sliced the onion and tomatoes. Then poured the indommitables in a clean pot, added a little water and then the seasonings coming with it. Then i poured the sliced onion and tomatoes at once too.
Withing 5mins, my breakfast was ready.
Having my breakfast
I had my breakfast by 8.40 am. After a little rest, i started cleaning the house. I usually use my off day to do some cleanings. So i mopped my sitting room and other rooms too.
