Friday - Thundery, but clear in the evening.
A good day.
Today I overslept just a tad. I was up before I missed very much of The X-Files though. Yay. I had some tea and today I made myself some oatmeal, so had that with my tea.
I didn’t fall asleep on the couch today, so watched the shows and then just before 1 I did a two-mile walk/workout. It felt quite good. I did it with shoes on and used the band again.
After I worked out, I went into the kitchen and started preparing my slow cooker for dinner. I wanted to make a vegetarian stew that I’d seen on Facebook. I got it started and then put everything in the slow cooker and left it. It was later than I had hoped by then, but dinner wouldn’t be at an unreasonable time.
I had a quick lunch of half an avocado and some bacon on toast and read a bit of my book too. I’m in the midst of The Woman Who Stole My Life by Marian Keyes. I’m enjoying it as much as I usually enjoy her stuff.
I quickly scanned my cards and then walked them off to the mailbox. On the way back, I popped into the little vegetable shop near the post office and bought some spinach to go in the stew.
When I got home, F called to say he was on his way home, and I washed the spinach and got it ready to go in the stew.
F came home around 6 and I told him that dinner wouldn’t be ready until 7 ish. That’s when we’ve been eating lately anyway. I looked for our can opener and had a really hard time finding it…it had fallen over the back of the drawer and I had to pull out the drawer and fish around with my arm. I wasn’t best pleased as I was trying to get things done quickly. F got a case of the vapors and went to lie down in the bedroom.
I took some of the towels that had fallen out of the drawer to put in my laundry basket and asked him how he was. I checked that he would still eat with me and he said he would.
I opened the coconut milk and added it and the spinach to the stew and then it was just a few minutes until dinnertime.
We had lemon pepper chicken, curried vegetable and chickpea stew, plus salad and it was very nice. I really enjoyed it and would like to make the recipe again. I had to substitute a few things, but overall I think the recipe worked really well.
F did the dishes and then during Castle I went and sat on the couch and did some knitting. My hat is going a bit better this time. F snoozed on the couch after I went back to my computer, and in fact is still there. He’s tired and achy, poor thing.
Tomorrow I hope we’ll see a movie and we have to go to the glasses shop to see about getting me a new pair of glasses. I’m wondering about getting a pair of glasses for all times rather than just when I need to read. I tend to wear my specs all the time at home anyway.
Come back later and find out what my Saturday was like. Until tomorrow….
