Thursday - Cloudy but warm, Thunder Later
A good day.
I got up on time this morning and came out to the couch. They’ve taken off The X-Files and now have Revenge on. It’s a silly show, but I sort of like it, so am getting up to watch it!
I had breakfast, tea and then a bit of a snooze. I got dressed a bit later, made the bed, the usual. F came home as usual after 12 for lunch, but today he did something unusual. He invited me out for lunch! I didn’t really need to go today, but I’ve been wanting to go out again so said yes. We went to the local Chinese restaurant and had a really nice meal. We shared our main dishes, which made things quite friendly.
I came home and scanned my cards and got them ready to go out. Unfortunately, I didn’t actually take them out for a while. I worked on my Christmas Letter, putting a banner on the top and making it look good. I walked the cards off to the post office after 5 pm, and then kept going to the convenience store for a coffee.
At home, I got started on dinner. It took a lot longer than I thought it would, but I finally did get everything in the oven. F was home as I put it in the oven. I left it in the oven and that was that. I hoped. Except, when it was supposed to be done, it wasn’t. I think I just packed too much in my dish. When we finally ate, about two hours later, things tasted great. I made the tian from a recipe from the Simply Recipes website. It looks a little odd because I used a purple sweet potato, a white sweet potato and some white potatoes. It took rather a while to cook, but was ultimately worth it. The caramelized onions in the base were so very good. I’m glad I spent time yesterday making them.
|If only the other sweet potato wasn't white, it would have looked|
so much better! Imagine a mix of white, orange and purple.
That would have looked great!
In the evening F did the dishes, and I watched a bit of telly and did some crochet. We had a fairly quiet evening, even though there was some thunder and lightning tonight.
I’m not sure what’s going to happen tomorrow. If I’m smart, I might wrap a Christmas Present or two, and if I’m really, really smart, I might just send one or two off tomorrow. Or do some Christmas Cards.
Come back later and find out what I get up to. Until tomorrow….
