Next on the agenda was making a grocery list.
Finally I was ready to head out the door to workout here. Where I endure 15 minutes of torture on this (I'm slowly working up to 30 minutes after only being able to do 3 minutes back in January!) and 35 minutes on the treadmill. I try to do this every day, but usually end up doing four. From there it was off to Super Target to buy groceries and socks for my son...again. It seems like I just bought him socks a month ago. Perhaps I need to spend some time going through the Lego bucket and cleaning out under his bed to hunt for dirty socks. Last stop was the library to pick up books I had on hold and replinish our poetry and picture book supply. This is what I brought home:
The rest of the afternoon passed uneventfully with watching the noon news and a couple of DVR'ed shows including Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution which once again made me cry. And, of course, I started reading from my stack.
2:50 and time to pick up children rolled around before I knew it. The afternoon always seems to pass in a blur of homework and kids running in and out so that 5:30 and time to start dinner arrives in no time. Tonight was Boneless Breast of Chicken with Three Peppers from Giuliano Hazan. I doctor this up by adding about four cloves of finely diced garlic once the pepers are done, let it cook for about one minute and then add chicken stock to deglaze the pan and help create more sauce since I serve it over pasta.
After finishing dinner and clean up it was time for baths and reading. We finished Minn of the Mississippi by Holling Clancy Holling tonight. Good book full of lots of information about the United States's most famous river. It is now 10:30. These two posts have taken me far longer to put together than I anticipated and I'm ready for bed. Good night.
