Monday - Snowy and cold
A good day.
I woke up this morning with F in the bedroom making some noise. He’d misplaced his glasses and thought they might have fallen off the bedstand. Nope. I went back to sleep.
When I got up a couple of hours later I watched a bit of TV and also snoozed on the couch. I found F’s glasses. He’d left them on the washing machine in the bathroom. I sent him a text telling him that.
I worked out today and I used one of my Christmas presents to help me do that. I got a Belkin armband to put my iPhone in to count my steps. That meant that I could wear my snazzy new workout gear. Feeling very proud of myself, I did my workout. I thought F might come home at lunch to pick up his glasses, so I shortened my planned workout, but he didn’t come!
I had an early-ish lunch and then got stuck into my column. I had a goodly amount done, but took a break at 4ish to have a shower. F came back around 5:30 but didn’t go over to his mother’s today. He kept talking to me and finally I had to ask him not to! I also suggested that he cook his own dinner while I was still busy.
I finally got all the good movies reviewed, so I took a break to cook my dinner. Tonight I made a new dish for myself. I made General Tso’s Chicken. I got the recipe here. I tasted the sauce today before I cooked it and that was good. I had to add a little more honey to balance the heat. I also had to fudge or leave out a few ingredients, but I think I might make it again! I served mine over couscous rather than rice, but it was nice anyway.

After I did my dishes after dinner, I watched Gossip Girl and finished my column. Yay! I got it done. I listened to it, made a few tweaks to it and then sent it in to the editor. Done! Now I can enjoy the rest of the time off, hopefully! I hope to do some crochet and or knitting soon.
F went to bed early as he was tired, but got up after a bit with a leg cramp. I massaged it for him as best I could and he’s now asleep on the couch. I think I shall send him off to bed soon, but I should get there soon too.
No ideas what we will get up to tomorrow. There is a faint chance that we’ll be out of town overnight this holiday week, so if I disappear for a night or two, don’t worry! Come back a bit later and find out what is new with me. Until tomorrow…?
