Well here is a recap from last night. I was really excited to make a lovely teriyaki salmon for dinner, I love salmon. This was the skin on variety, which I am not such a big fan of but normally just remove the skin after it’s cooked, no biggie. But for some reason the taste of the skin permeated the entire fish. John didn’t seem to mind but I couldn’t eat it. I think this is the fist meal I just haven’t been able to get through EVER! Good thing I had a heaping helping of rice left over… and cereal… and toast haha. Spent the rest of the evening chilling and chatting with a friend at watch a little Harry Potter that happened to be on. I think if I were at Hogwarts I would really be into the potions class.
It was lovely to lay curled up in my warm bed until about 7:30 this morning. I think I am really starting to get used to getting up before 6. It was a lovely cooler morning here to after a hearty oatmeal breakfast for myself and bacon and egg breakfast for John we decided to take a nice morning walk through our neighbourhood stopping at a few garage sales along the way, alas no amazing finds. After getting back we decided to head over to our favorite market, The Cross Roads Market, where we loaded up on heaps of fresh veggies and fruit. I just realized with John in the field I am going to have to be ambitious to get through all of our produce. Before heading to the market we stopped to get our mail and found a notice telling us we had a package waiting for us. We weren’t expecting anything so had no idea what it could be. It turned out our wedding photographer had sent us a little thank you note and gift!
She sent us chocolate bars and some temporary tattoos in connection with some stories we had of costumes we had worn. Mine was a pink unicorn when I was little and John’s was a giant rabbit costume from when he was not so little (a story for another day).
Well we are off to a friends for some lip smacking smoked ribs, wine, fun and dessert. Dessert is my contribution, angel food cake which turned out not too badly! I will be serving some nice fruit and honey along side it. Happy Saturday!
