I had my annual physical today – mostly just to review blood test results. Most of my numbers have improved since last year, and I attribute that to more exercise and (fairly) clean living! Having good health is such a blessing!
Facebook sent me one of those “Memory” things, reminding me that this time last year we were in Botswana on a safari. That was one of the coolest trips we have taken. Alas, this year’s travel is so much different. A friend posted this on Facebook…..if we cannot go to Europe this winter, we can go to towns in Texas and pretend we are there!
I taught another Spanish class. I try to make it fun, but there is still some hard work – memorizing, figuring out verbs, etc. We have class twice a week.
DINNER: I skipped Jacques Pepin tonight in order to use up some leftovers. I made fried rice with: leftover rice, frozen Asian vegetables, peas, green peppers, chicken pieces, egg, ginger, green onion, regular onion, and garlic. At the end, I threw in some kelp that our daughter had given us from a sea-agriculture farm in Ireland. Topped it with some furikawi, a seaweed/sesame seed mix from the same Irish company. Tasty! We paired it with Japanese sake.
