Friday - Lots of rain, but some sun too.

I had my usual basic morning, except I wrote quite a bit of email today. I think I was putting off my column checking. I did finally get around to it though. I finished my column and even sent it in. Yay me. One day before the deadline!

I had my lunch and then I came back to the room and rewatched Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I still didn’t like it at all! No, that’s not fair. I hated Johnny Depp in it and thought he was really creepy. I’ve always been a fan of Freddie Highmore and I liked him and his screen family in this. They were sweet and good. 

I spent some time on my computer before going downstairs to get dinner underway around 5:30. Tonight I was making tandori chicken again, so I mixed the powder with a bit of yogurt. It ended up making it a little milder. It was still good, probably better for K and F than me. I wanted it spicy! I served the chicken with salad, rice for K and F, French Onion soup (from a packet), and yesterday’s leftovers. Dinner was pretty good. F surprised me by washing the dishes tonight. I didn’t expect it from him tonight. A nice treat! After he finished, I cleaned my toaster oven. When I preheated it for the chicken it was a bit smoky. 

I finished up and then came upstairs. I watched a few things on my computer and then took a shower. When I was in the bathroom I cleaned a bit of the vanity. The place where our toothbrushes are kept was quite disgusting so I cleaned it all out. I threw out my toothbrush after using it to do a bit of cleaning!

I came back upstairs and watched a couple of hours of TV. That was really it for my day. 

I’m not sure what we’ll get up to tomorrow. I’m hoping that we’ll be able to go out a bit, but who knows! Come back later if you like and hear all about it. Until tomorrow….

The French Onion soup! Your post reminded me that it's been ages since I had it, so maybe I will cook it this weekend. So yummy... :)

It is delicious! Even the packet stuff that we had is really good. We bought it at Costco on a whim, and it was lovely.

Enjoy it!
