0500: awake, might as well get up....watching "The Hangover" and knitting on Sophie's Solstice
0615: make Barley Scones with homemade 3 citrus marmalade, fold and put away laundry, drink second cup of coffee
0630: get Sophie up...have latte, take pictures of scones, feed dog
0715: walk dog, finish watching movie, finish waistband of Sophie's sweater
0830: make grocery list, go for 5 mile windy run, eat early lunch of leftover brussel sprout slaw, cheese panini, wash and put away dishes; revise Ian's CV.
1100: fill truck up, shop at HEB, buy tomato plants (yellow teardrops)
1200: make shrimp escabeche for tomorrow night, marinate kalbi for tonight, steam and marinate more Moroccan carrots.
1345: google how to keep deer away from tomato plants, plant tomato plants; make Zoku (Japanese for $50 popsicle maker) treats. Listen to episode of Dinner Party Download; do more dishes.
1400: study Certificate Maintanence Modules, reluctantly, but outside in the delightful weather.
1500: tired of studying, have a snack, go to get Sophie so she doesn't have to ride the bus.
1630: dinner prep: sauce for the asian sesame noodles, make second batch of Zoku, show Sophie the tomato plants.
1700: epic Zoku fail. Quick bike ride with Sophie in the neighborhood. Internet surfing waiting for grill to heat up and water to boil.
1730: Ian home, kalbi on grill, photographed and cooked to perfection; sesame noodles ready, kimchi opened and still bubbling, surely lots of probiotics in there.
1845: delicious dinner with leftovers for lunch. Sophie "I love these noodles" and cut her kalbi and noodles with scissors just like a seasoned ajumma. Wierd to eat kimchi with a fork. The surviving Zoku tasted sufficiently like malt balls even without malt balls.
1930: a little knitting with Sophie! she asked to knit and even wanted to frog our first attempt since it had a big mistake. Her first project is a TV from Mochi Mochi Style. She has caught on faster than most adults I have taught. We watched a couple of episodes of "Better off Ted" our new favorite TV show--reminds me of "Arrested Development"
2100: a little reading and bedtime! Got to work tomorrow, thanks for hanging out with me today....
