Monday 8th –
The house needed cleaning so it was cleaned.
I love the smell of my swiffer cleaning thingies so that pretty much makes it feel like a joy instead of a job 😜
That may not be a really healthy thing now that I think of it 🤔
It was insanely windy … gusting up to 112 km during the night and only slightly less breezy throughout the day.
Gosh all I’m telling you poor people about is the weather and cleaning products.
I sound like a lame tv commercial or something.
Painted a valentines card for Mike and some other odds and ends for the fun of it.
Supper as always seems to be the biggest accomplishment of the day. Salmon sliders with a creamy avocado sauce, lemon cucumber salad, fried mushrooms and rice. Oh, and a smoothie.
Toasted sugar bread with butter and coffee enjoyed in my coffee cup from Ireland, has become a morning staple ☺️
This day was to be our Valentine’s Day so we could celebrate it more fully then we could have if we did it on the correct day, Sunday.
Also it just so happened to be our four-month anniversary so it seemed like a good day swap.
Anyways, back to the chopping.
Strawberries, bananas, mangos and apples were all ready for the first use of the fondue pot.
But it’s silly to think you can survive off of chocolate covered fruit right? 😋
So cheese, peppers, cucumbers, lunch meat and veggie dip were prepared also.
The fondue cord is short and we like eating in the living room so stuff had to get moved around and so it happened that a mattress covered in pillows ended up on the floor, perfectly positioned for optimal food reach and movie viewing😏👌🏻
( After trying it out, I told Mike I wouldn’t mind a room floored in mattresses and pillows happening sometime in our home owning experience. Preferably with a minnie fridge and laptop too. 😋👌🏻 )
I guessed that as a still newly married couple my husband probably didn’t appreciate the whole “bed head and not totally cute pjs” look that he gets home to almost every day… So a little extra effort was made and ta-da, a sane looking person showed up in my usual place 😜
Mike got back from work and we took the ‘troublesome, but someone’s gotta do it’ task of figuring out what goes best with chocolate fondue.
I still think strawberries are the best with chocolate and apple slices best with peanut butter dip (just peanut butter and icing sugar).
Mike ate it all so I can’t honestly say what he liked best… I suppose our research is incomplete and thus must be tried again.
The pity 😒
It was a nice date at home night ☺️
