Day 68

Today was a rest day and it sure was an enjoyable rest day. I know the week wasn’t ‘doing’ busy but it was pretty emotionally draining, then yesterday was a long day of cleaning. So being able to just sit and feel good doing nothing was… fantastic.

I spent the morning in WoW with some friends doing dungeons. We had a blast and lots of laughs. Then I spent some time playing WoW with wifey and it was lots of fun. She is the best at everything. I cannot complain.

The rest of the afternoon was filled with zombie-like staring and some occasional groans. I’m guessing the extra house work has made some of my chronic pain issues flair up again. I can’t remember the last time it was this painful.

Late afternoon, hubby and I got our French revision done while lasagne was baking in the oven. This has got to be one of my favourite meals. It’s made with a spaghetti sauce packed full of veggies and slow cooked for 4 hours. I came up with the recipe myself and it works perfectly every time.

I started working on a knit pattern. I finally got past the cast on row. I did the first three rows with a knit one, purl one stitch. Each row from now is one purl row, one knit row until it’s the right size. There are a couple of little mistakes but I think it’s worth completing. I will most likely work on that tomorrow.

Now, it’s time to get real about the weekly photo challenge. I have two choices when it comes to the photo challenge. I either throw my hands in the air and give up OR I can very loosely relate a picture to the topic just so that I can keep going. I’m going with that option because it feels a bit better.

For this week’s Let’s Do 52 – 52 Week Photo Challenge picture, a photo of last nights dinner.

I have very loosely related this to the topic ‘in the corner’.

Enjoy this very vibrant bowl of Indonesian inspired Chicken, Vegetables and Noodles in the corner of the photo.
