Thursday - Snowy and colder

A good day.

I got up this morning, came through to the couch, sat down, and promptly fell asleep!  I didn’t wake up until Nikita was finishing.  I made myself breakfast and tea, but somehow F came home for a couple of minutes and took my place on the couch.  Grr.

I did a quick bed making session and later took myself off to have a shower.  While I was in the shower, F came home for lunch.  He said he thought I’d gone out!

After F left, I started getting dinner together. I was making pulled pork in the slow cooker, so I looked up some recipes and got started.  I soon had it bubbling away. The smell was gorgeous.

I asked F to bring a couple of things home with him for dinner and since he didn’t have to go to his mother’s tonight, he was a bit early.  I told him to relax while I shredded the pork and mixed it back into the slow cooker, made the coleslaw and then cut up the rest of the chicken from Costco for good measure!  

Finally, it was time to eat.  I was really surprised because F really liked it, and had seconds!  He only took a little at first and then ended up doubling that and then we had a little bit extra afterwards.  It was good though.  I put things away and asked him if he’d do the dishes tonight. There wasn’t a whole lot since I had done a bunch earlier.  He did them and we settled in for a nice evening.  

I wrote 3 postcards tonight.  I didn’t get a chance to take them to the post office tonight, so decided I’d rather take a whole bunch there tomorrow.  During Bones, I finished darning in the centres and preparing the squares for joining.  Yay me.  I still have to crochet a few more, however.  

When I finished, I prepared the plastic garbage for going out.  I hadn’t sent any out for a while so there was a bag of pet bottles and a plastics bag too.  

And really, that’s about it for my day.  It was okay.  If the roads are clear tomorrow I might try and go out and run an errand, but I’m not sure if I’ll have time or not.  I have to scan cards and I’m thinking of preparing something nice to go with dinner tomorrow night.  Come on back and see what I get up to!  Until tomorrow….
