Tuesday - Cloudy and cool
An okay day.
I got up before my alarm today but was still quite tired and not really feeling it! I made some tea and had breakfast while watching House. At 10:30 there was a different show on than I was expecting and it was a failed US show. It was on, but I didn’t really watch it. I got dressed for my workout and then did it. I started right around 11:30 so was done early in case F came home. He didn’t!
In the afternoon I watched Broadchurch 2. Wow. I thought it was really well done, although I didn’t really like how things went down. I also watched the weekend’s episode of Major Crimes and liked that.
I left starting dinner a little late, so was trying to play catch up when F arrived home. I was trying to cook in a Japanese style, which is hard if you don’t have any of the ingredients at hand. I didn’t have sake so I used some of my gorgeous sherry from a few years ago. It tasted good.
I ended up changing the method halfway through, but when I declared my dish to be “done” it wasn’t bad. F said it was good, but by that point I would have been upset if he hadn’t said that! Actually, I quite liked it so who knows. Don’t really want to make it again though! I made “buri daikon” and it was actually my first time cooking daikon too. I really don’t do Japanese food at all.
I did the dishes tonight because F was in a bad way and then went and worked on Christmas cards too. I got a couple done as well. I also will send off a couple of easy Christmas gifts tomorrow if I get them wrapped. Fingers crossed.
Tonight was quite quiet. I watched Grey’s Anatomy on the couch and did a little crochet. Even though I’m still working on them, I think I won’t be able to send off my Christmas trees this year. I’ll have to save them for next year or something.
That’s about it. Tomorrow I will try cooking sweet potatoes in the slow cooker and maybe something with eggplant too, but not in the slow cooker. I have to work out, go to the post office and write more cards! Come back and see just what I get up to. Until tomorrow….
