A Slightly Less Pathetic Day

At least I got out of the house and did the most critical grocery shopping. I was really motivated by the annual NY Times puzzle supplement. Not that I’ve actually ever gotten around to doing last year’s or, for that matter, the year before. I take them with me on vacations but never get around to them. Maybe this time...


I even managed to cook a reasonable dinner. I had taken a chicken breast out of the freezer yesterday, but it hadn’t finished thawing by 7 p.m. so I ended up eating an apple and some nuts for supper instead. Tonight, I cooked the chicken and, happily, remembered the bottle of Nando’s periperi sauce I got as a gimme at the South African embassy back in May. I had it with some steamed green beans. I bought too many of those so I think I will throw them in a curry with potatoes, carrots, and onions tomorrow night.

I did not, however, get through writing Christmas cards. Or sorting out the annual begging letters. Or catching up on a billion other chores.
