I am not walking as much due to flying twigs and snapping tree limbs
plus my walking partner has been pre-occupied with ailing family members.
What have I got to complain about?
in a nut shell, nothing!
I am just feeling a tad bit grumpy...and I want to shake this unsettling feeling asap.
Maybe I have "cabin fever,"
I am not sure...
that is what my Grandmother called it when she stayed in for a long time...
We actually chatted about this on the phone when she was alive...
I was home with toddlers...she with arthritis and a dodgy hip.
When your cat stares at you for a long time...
you wonder what he is thinking.
I am not one that has truly befriended idleness
so I tie on my apron and get busy.
Cooking and cleaning are so therapeutic...
Store made BBQ chicken and salads were an easy peasy Saturday night dinner.
(after the neighbour's Cookie open house)
The next day it was transformed into a Chicken Pot Pie.
It was not a Weight Watchers friendly supper...
it tasted darn good.
and did some online shopping at L'Occitane.
I rarely do this but Mr. HB was watching hockey!
I got a gift card and some small hand lotions as a bonus for shopping the site
plus there was free shipping...
In the frenzy of activity and between storms I popped over to the club.
Where there is a quiet spot to sit for a cup of tea
Mah Jong, Bridge lessons and games.
Eggplants were on sale at the market...
I have always been fascinated with them and I prefer to call them Aubergines.
I have no clue what to do with them so I posted on Facebook asking my "friends" what recipes that they might share with me.
One particular friend suggested I try Eggplant Parmigiana.
So I did a Google search
and then Martha Stewart's recipe popped up!
I served this to my Mother and Sister as a side dish for dinner.
Delivered some at lunch time for our amazing DIL
and 3 gorgeous children to sample.
Took time out to take tea.
I feel infinitely better when I sit and have a cup or two.
Not so crazed after quiet time...feel like a new woman.
ready to take on new challenges and boldly go....
Just saying that this is my kind of Fur! (FIR)
I am hoping to get out for a long walk later this week but in the meantime I am keeping busy.
Hope that you are having a great week!
