Wednesday - Sunny but cool, rainy at night.

A good day. I got up this morning, watched the news and then watched some of last night’s TV. I watched Project Runway and The Good Wife as well. They were both quite good.

In the later part of the afternoon I went out. I went to the bank machine near the supermarket to deposit some money then hit up my craft store. I didn’t buy anything there, although I wanted to, then hit up the drugstore next door. I bought a few things there, but nothing too important. I rode back towards home, but stopped in at McDonalds to try their newest McFlurry flavour. It was good, but not great.

I came home and about half an hour later, F phoned then came home. He was very hungry, so I made dinner fairly soon after his arrival.

While he had a rest, I put the water on for pasta and made up some garlic butter. When I had done that I partially sliced a loaf of French bread and then buttered it with the garlic butter. I baked it for a while, set the table and got the pasta in the pan. I got F to do most of the sauce warming up. I didn’t make the sauce, I’m afraid that it was a packet from the store! Still good though. We had spaghetti with a cream chicken sauce, onion salad and very, very garlicky garlic toast. It was good!

F did the dishes and then he started working on a translation for my school. Hurray for him. He finally also used the mouse I bought him as a late anniversary present and it was much better than his old one.

We watched The Hours tonight. I had heard different things about it, that it was good, or that it was boring. I did find a bit of it boring, but I think it was because I didn’t give it my full attention. Parts of the movie grabbed me and I thought they were great. Overall I would say that I really enjoyed the movie and would like to see it again.

We watched So You Think You Can Dance at 11. F finished up the translation and tried to print it while I watched the show and crocheted a bit. My tension is all off. I am wondering if I should frog it or not, but I’m about half done and I don’t have a lot of time to finish it. Sigh.

F went to bed around 12:30 and I might go fairly soon.

Today was good. Night!

Pasta for dinner is good! MIL was on a overnighter so it was just the 3 of us... that was good too! LOL.... Hubs cooked a tomato sauce chicken.... dinner is fairly simple when one person is out...

F hardly ever "lets" me cook pasta at home, but it is so simple and easy that I don't know why! It was nice not to fuss over dinner...or argue about it as often happens!

Sadly I can't eat tomato sauce as it makes me itch, but pasta is fine!

Thanks for visiting :-)
