Friday after work, the sweetie and I decided to take advantage of the fact we had a night to ourselves and stayed in to watch movies. After snagging a couple of subs from Thaitai , we hit Bird Dog Video and snagged our cheery movies for the night.
Only two of those picks were mine My first comment when we met back up at the counter was “Wow, we sure picked some cheery movies didn’t we!”.
After a bit of a break, Saturday busyness is back in full effect. Started off the day with a couple of quick errands, then off to the Farmer’s Market for some groceries. Picked up more blood oranges and
cara-cara oranges, as well as a couple more dragon fruit.
If you like kiwi, you’ll love these
Dinner was chicken briefly marinated in Ubuntu white wine and a cilantro lime marinade. Sauteed it with diced white onion, fresh squeezed lemon and sections of blood orange. For sides I did some black rice with
blood orange zest, and green beans in butter. Tasty!
Today is off to a significantly slow start. I did 4 loads of laundry yesterday, in addition to the running around for groceries etc… not sure if there was one too many just missed slips or the laundry did it, but my lower back hurts like hell today.
That said, I have a young man’s first birthday ever to go to, and I’ll be damned if I miss it. Might not be able to stay very long, but the lad is getting his present from Uncle Cold War ™ dammit
Although I think the lad’s father is going to have to make with some details about his family history or his son is going to be immersed in Russian by the time he’s 10 *grin*
It is wise to apply the oil of refined politeness to the mechanisms of friendship.
