We have not been out and about too much, but we did go out for lunch and a couple of movies (Edge of Darkness and Percy and the Lightening Thief) for Valentine's Day. It was nice to get out and about and get some fresh air. I have also started being able to cook some more things for us, but if there is a lot of chopping or cutting, I need the boys assistance. We had friends M & M over for dinner last week and I made a rosemary and garlic leg of lamb, truffled mashed potatoes (the boy mashed) and steamed asparagus along with a mixed green, pear, candied walnut and red onion salad. It was a nice dinner and I was so happy to find other friends to cook for who enjoy lamb.
This week our menu looked like this
Sunday - Lunch out, popcorn at the movies
Monday - Chicken Marsala
Tuesday - Moraccan Pilaf (to use leftover lamb)
Wednesday - Macaroni and Cheese (Ash Wednesday)
Thursday - Dinner out with the boys parents and screening of "Shutter Island"
Friday - Wine Event "An Event of Olympic Proportions" looking forward to this, but I will have to remember no meat with all of the good foods that will be there!
Saturday - Wedding Reception
My days have been pretty boring. I spend four hours a day on this thing.
Fun stuff I tell you, but it beats having to figure out how to get back and forth to physical therapy two to three times a week considering I can't drive at the moment.
I have been able to work on some projects here and there, will post those soon. So I try to keep a little busy. I have read quite a few books, magazines, watched some TV series on the Roku, as well as some movies. But truthfully, most of the time, bored, bored, bored. Which can get pretty depressing. I have been thinking a lot lately about the past few winters here. This marks my fourth winter here in Minnie, and looking back on all of them, I really go through a slump in the winter. I am thinking it may be S.A.D. (seasonal affective disorder). For the past 7 weeks or so, I am lucky if I have gotten out of the house more than twice, but truth be told with the weather we have here, I don't really care to. I am thinking I may have to hit the tanning bed just to get some rays and some pick me ups. I am definitely looking forward to the Spring, May cannot get here soon enough. I know that the boy and I would have gone away this winter if it had not have been for this shoulder. Oh well.
Thanks again for all of the well wishes. I would post more if there were anything exciting going on, but there is just not a lot going on when I spend my days with me, myself and I.
