Anyone else feel like they blinked and the long weekend was over? For me, it was a giant blur of cleaning, drawing and cooking. We had our big dinner on Sunday and it was a great feast of veggie shepherd’s pie, tofurkey, real turkey, fake gravy, real gravy, turnips and carrots, rolls, stuffing, cranberry sauce and two dessert pies. Now we have a sweet week of eating leftovers, no more cooking until its all gone. I made a vegetarian shepherd’s pie because I figured it could feed the most amount of people with it and also made two dessert pies.
The fruit pies were from scratch and I had a mini-meltdown because A)I had been cooking since 7am that morning and B)the dough for the apple one wasn’t coming together properly. (Despite me using ice cold everything! Argh! Ah well, I should remember that excellent pie making takes practice. Lots 0f yummy practice!:))
On Monday, I slept like crap and couldn’t breathe through my nose and my throat hurt. Thank the Pilgrims and Indians (Aboriginals, sorry!) it was a holiday, because going to work like that would have sucked! The cold is still with me, but I’m not going down without a fight! Last night, I also attempted to do yoga, except this time I had to do it in my living room so hubby could watch the hockey game in the basement. It didn’t go very well-The cats rubbed against me in child’s pose and the dog insisted on smothering me with kisses in corpse pose! LOL. Hopefully tonight the TV downstairs will be free.:)
It’s a three-day work week for us-We’ve got our last wedding (phew!) to go to this weekend in Toronto and I’m taking this Friday off. Do you think the couple would mind if I wore jeans and sneakers? I think my feet have exceeded their limit for the requisite wedding (aka. painful!) foot wear.
