Today was pretty much divided into three parts — cleaning, food prep, book club dinner.
Cleaning: as soon as we finished breakfast, we split up and attacked the house — Kimm swept, vacuumed, and cleaned the bathrooms — I did the dishes, wiped down the appliances, cleaned the cat/dog bowls, and cleaned the tub. We were both dripping sweat when we were done and ready for a shower.
Food prep: after lunch (veggie burgers and leftover fries/onion rings/veggie lo mein). Then it was off to the grocery store to pick up a few things for the meal — we were going with an Italian theme. The menu — spaghetti with mushroom/pepper spaghetti sauce, sauteed green beans with garlic, romaine salad with veggies (cucumber, red onion, grape tomatoes, green pepper), Italian bread with olive oil dipping sauce, lemon cake with lemon glaze. When we got home I made the cake — LOVE the smell of fresh lemons! Then it was to work on the rest of the stuff…prepping the vegetables and such.
Book club: our good friend that we do book club with came over about 5 pm. We IMMEDIATELY broke out the wine and started drinking and chatting while we finished with the meal prep. The meal was SO GOOD. We all went to town on everything and declared it delicious. We continued drinking wine and talking and the night just FLEW by. I love it when that happens. We discussed our book (The Happiness Project) and the book chapters that we focused on just fed into talk, talk and more talk. We finished the evening with our cake and some coffee and more talk and laughter. Honestly it was really a great evening and we all said again when it was done…we HAVE to do this more often 🙂
