|Milk Rice and Mackerel Curry|
On the first day of August, I made milk rice for brunch and a mackerel curry (using canned mackerel) to go with it. I used regular dairy milk for the rice, but, used the remainder from a can of coconut milk (that I had kept in a jar in the fridge) for the curry. In case anyone is wondering, the red bits in the curry are pieces of tomato and the green leaves are curry leaves. I also had a banana while I was waiting for the milk rice and the curry to cook.
It was another warm day, with a high of 97F. I did the dishes (the plates, etc., in the dishwasher; the pots and pans by hand), scrubbed the stove top and the counters, had a long conversation with cousin P and a shorter one with friend R, practiced the piano, swept my bathroom and cleaned the litter box, watched some of my favorite cooking shows on TV and watched the video of today's temple services, online. Later in the evening, I video chatted with my daughter.
I received a reminder in the mail, today, from my gynecologist that I needed to make an appointment for an annual exam! I am not sure if I am ready for all this, yet!
It was a fairly relaxed day, but, I am content with what I accomplished. In between doing the few household tasks I did today, I sat on the sofa with my foot elevated, icing my toe, which is still a bit painful (it has been a week since I bruised it). I am wondering if I might have a hairline fracture, after all.
Dinner was a sandwich as I wasn't very hungry, followed by some yogurt. Later, I had crackers with peanut butter for a snack.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The beginning of a new month
- Being able to watch the video of the temple services
- Working appliances (fridge/freezer, dishwasher, fans, TV, computers, etc.)
- Electricity to run the appliances
- Chatting with my daughter, cousin, and friend
Today's joyful activity was watching cooking shows on TV!
According to the weather forecast, tomorrow's high will be 100F. I am planning to have another relaxed day, although I really need to start the car!
How was your Saturday? Did you do anything special to mark it being the first of the month? What are your plans for tomorrow?
