Mundane post about my day forthcoming (well, I will foreshadow a spicy ending). . .
So I harvested veggies and cooked a lot today. I made a baked dish of potatoes and shallots with rosemary and cooked up some well-seasoned hamburger for soft tacos.
From the garden, I picked and washed a diverse array of leafy greans: swiss chard, kale, large leaf lettuce, and green leafy lettuce. I also picked the remaining tomatoes and a few green peppers and will whip up some easy tomato sauce tomorrow, if I have time.
I accomplished some necessary phone calls and emails and went running, which I'm still managing to do a couple times a week (it's harder now that I have to finish before the sun starts setting at 4:45!).
Sh/cm and I had a lovely evening from start to finish and will soon be heading off to dreamland.
He met me at the door carrying flowers, wine, and yummy macaroon and almond cookie dessert.
I paired the fish he cooked with a salad of the greens, peppers, tomato, carrots and avocado, as well as the potato/shallot dish.
Conversation and affection flowed plentifully through dinner preparation and eating, and culminated in dessert and lovemaking in the kitchen.
Sorry, I know that's TMI! But I have to say it was nice to have such a fun and amorous evening after having some struggles around connection and communication recently.
p.s. Last night, I performed in my third Interplay Theatre performance, since joining the class almost a year and a half ago. We did a lot of expressive movement pieces - one to poetry and sound that generated lots of positive response. I also led a "gesture choir" for the first time. I shared about a typical day teaching the wacky middle schoolers, making dramatic gestures to emphasize parts of my story as several people standing being me gestured along, amplifying my movements. Sh/cm came and was sweetly supportive.
