I don’t feel like I did enough today, and I think it’s because I didn’t run. I got out and ran some errands (bought a new thermostat, got the oil changed in my car, had copies made of the house keys for the new pet sitter (who we’re meeting tomorrow)), so I was at least, you know, active, but I feel like a slob.
Dinner, while delicious and healthy (kimchi, rice, lettuce wraps), was painful. I have a cut on my thumb, just under the nail, and the rice vinegar and soy sauce in the kimchi hurt a lot as it ran over my hands. Which happened with every bite. John eventually gave up on the lettuce wraps and just ate rice and kimchi with a fork. Next time I’ll make sure we have chopsticks. This is the second time I’ve made kimchi (using Mark’s recipe – good recipe, Mark!), and it turned out pretty well. John has already eaten most of the non-spicy batch I made for him.
Tomorrow Jess is coming over, and we’re going to see the Canadian Brass Christmas concert at George Mason. John surprised me with tickets for this concert last year at the Kennedy Center. He’s pretty good with surprises. And the concert was great, so I’m very excited. And Jess is coming over!
