TGIF: When in Doubt, Cook
Last week, I was go, go, go in Victoria. Since coming home on Saturday night, I have to admit, I’ve been pretty lazy. Aside from working during the day, going to physio twice and the gym once, I have spent most of the past week on my couch, watching Homeland (again) and… that’s about it!
On Wednesday afternoon, I realized how little I’d accomplished; not that I had any pressing deadlines this week, but I felt as though I’d “wasted” a bunch of my spare time. Do you guys ever feel that way!? Anyway, I don’t know if I just needed to cross a project off my to-do list or what, but I ended up going to the grocery store, picking up some food and spending the entire night batch cooking. The result: two homemade quiches and a dozen handheld chicken pot pies.
I know you’re not supposed to say that your own cooking tastes good, but I have to admit… I think I’ve mastered homemade quiches (according to my tastebuds, anyway). Also, the chicken pot pies are delicious, but could’ve used more seasoning (or at least some garlic). Now that the fridge is stocked, I can go back to lazing away on the couch, right? Just kidding. I want to write a couple week’s worth of blog posts this weekend, if possible, so I can enjoy my time away…
The low of my week was thinking my lower back and right hip were starting to feel better, then running on a treadmill for a few minutes, realizing I was wrong and irritating them again. TG for physio and ice packs.
The high of my week was Skyping with Shannon from ReadyForZero on Monday night. <3
A blog post I loved wasn’t really a blog post… it was a list of 10 TED Talks Every Woman Should See. I’d already seen a few (Liz Gilbert’s, Brene Brown’s and Sheryl Sandberg’s) but have slowly been going through the rest this week. Watch some this weekend, in honour of International Women’s Day!
The best money I spent was $25.71 on a new French press from Starbucks, which I had to buy after the glass in my old one shattered. So, maybe that was the worst money I spent, haha.
My plans this weekend include going to a public speaking workshop with my mentee, having lunch downtown with a friend, then getting some writing done. I’m really excited about next week’s posts!
How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
