Monday - Hot and Sunny
A good day.
I got up a few minutes late, but came through to the living room quickly. I made tea and breakfast, watched Castle and checked Facebook, the usual.
I got dressed quite early and made the bed and started a workout out before 12. I finished about 3 minutes before F came home for lunch. Safe. He made and then ate his lunch and then left. I did actually offer to make him something, but he turned me down.
I did some of my computer stuff, but in the middle I found I was so hungry that I needed lunch! I made myself a “skillet” lunch and it was awesome! I cut up the leftover potatoes from last week, fried them and added in a wiener. Then I took it all out of the pan, put it on a plate and topped it with some shaved cheddar. After that I fried an egg, but left the yolk runny and put it on the top of my mound of food. Yum. I was surprised because I rarely eat eggs. They just aren’t something that I eat nowadays.
I finished up my computer stuff, watched some stuff on the DVR and then took a quick shower.
I went into the kitchen and started to prep for dinner. I did the dishes and then washed some veggies and divvied out the salad in two plates.
I had a weird idea yesterday for today’s dinner and I tried it out. It worked rather well. We had bought some nice wieners at Costco, so I made Yakitori with them. I cut them up, threaded them on skewers with some vegetables and then with the leftover veggies I made vegetarian skewers. We had them with boiled potatoes. It was pretty cool. I grilled them on the fish grill and dinner got quite good reviews! The one thing F commented on was that I didn’t put the wieners on the skewer the way a Japanese person would. I think he liked it!
Around 8:30pm we went out for a walk again. I suggested the general direction and we walked for ages. After 9:00 pm I suggested going home, but it still took us another half hour (including the time it took to visit a convenience store) to get home. I have been piling up the miles over the last few days. Honestly, it’s a little much. Usually when I walk I have 24 hours to recover. At the moment it is around 9. I’m debating skipping my workout tomorrow morning or doing an easier one just so I don’t wear myself out. I won’t be walking on Wednesday morning as I have plans, but I’m undecided about tomorrow. I think I’ll play it by ear and decide tomorrow!
We came home and I did a few postcrossings. I took a break to watch an old CSI and finished my purse. Yay! I’ll try and post a picture tomorrow for your viewing pleasure!
After midnight I noticed I had tons of calories left so I offered F another couple of mince tarts. We had a late night snack and it was lovely. I was swearing not to buy the mince tarts again, because I don’t eat them at New Years, but even eating them in May is lovely! Not seasonally appropriate, but yummy.
That’s about it for me. I’m quite tired and I need my sleep. Come back later for pictures of my purse and to find out what I end up doing! Until tomorrow….
