30 November 2008

What are your Sunday plans? Mine are ... [More:]

1. A good dinner, which is already in the slow cooker. I'm having brisket, which I sealed in hot olive oil. Then I took the beef out of the pan, added a little butter to the oil and in went a couple of sliced onions, 3 cloves of garlic and some ground spices ('souvla' spice a friend brought me back from Greece). Then it all went into the slow cooker, with some carrots and beef stock, a good pinch of salt and some black pepper. It'll be ready by about 4pm.

2. Big football day today - my team plays the local rivals. So after a kettlebell workout, I'll watch the game.

3. Hot date with boo on Skype. Yay!

1. Sleep in.
2. Cheese toast and hot chocolate and Simpsons and snuggles.
3. Zelda.

The boy already did the washing up, the laundry, the recycling, and the glider cage. He's so awesome.

1. Wash hair

I can't decide what to do for 2 or 3. It would be nice to go shopping, but like sisterhavana said the weather is supposed to be awful here (hi sisterhavana!). But yesterday I didn't leave my apartment except to go to Walgreens! On the other hand I thought I might do some schoolwork.

I might pack some schoolwork and go to a cafe after shopping.

The only thing left on the list for today is to go to bed early. Given that I didn't slept very last night, I'm not expecting it to be a problem.
