Monday - Sunny but I didn’t go out.
Happy Birthday to my sister….
A good day.
I woke up a bit early today and actually got up and stayed up. I was a bit tired, but thought it was better than going back to sleep and oversleeping.
I watched the news from the BBC and ABC today, so feel a bit more caught up on world events. I wish there weren’t any events to be caught up on however.
I had my usual kind of a morning. I had breakfast watching House, then some crochet time, which was a bit different I suppose. I spent some time on my computer too. I also did a workout today too. I put in a new dvd which breaks things into 10 minute segments rather than miles, so I did about 40 minutes of exercising this morning. I felt quite good. I did skip one of the workouts as it was more energetic than I felt!
I had a quiet day at home. I didn’t get up to too much. I had lunch before 3:00pm today, so positively early. F had made cranberry bread in the bread maker last night so I had a couple of pieces with some peanut butter. Yum.
F popped home before he went to his mother’s as he wanted to photocopy something. His printer was out of ink so I volunteered to do it for him on mine. I’d never done it before though, so I had to work out how. It was simple and he was able to put his important papers into the office he needed to just in time.
After he left, I got started on prepping the kitchen for dinner. I had to clear off the table, which was a huge mess after the weekend. Then, I had to put away dishes, do some dishes and then I could finally start dinner prep. Sigh.
Tonight we had baked chicken, with salad and stir-fried cabbage. The cabbage wasn’t as good as I had hoped it would be. I used vinegar instead of cooking wine, so it tasted more sauerkraut than I wanted it to. It wasn’t bad though.
F did the dishes and a bit later we had some persimmon crumble. It’s pretty good. I watched Gossip Girl and did more crochet on the couch, then did a few postcrossings tonight too. I’ll have to get them done and sent out tomorrow too.
I’m now just waiting to talk to my sister and wish her a happy birthday. Technology is wonderful sometimes!
Tomorrow I’m doing a big cooking job, so I may not have a lot of time in the afternoon. Come on back later and see what I get up to! Until tomorrow….
