My sister is playing old man’s marbles today. I don’t like the game, so she did not even bother to ask me along. My father will be having lunch at his retirement village and will be joining her after lunch, so I have the place for myself today.
And I’ll be making my own food for a change.
I asked Bea to come around for lunch with me; she undertook to bring a salad or two and will provide the dessert. She’ll be here early to give me a hand.
I’m not very fond of chicken but today I’m in the mood for it. I’ll be off to the supermarket to get some after posting this blog. I don’t like the white meat of a chicken; too dry. I only eat the thighs, drumsticks and the wings and only if the skin is nice and crispy. I’ll be cheating today. I’m going to do the chicken in the microwave before putting it in the oven.
I don’t know yet what we’ll have with it, I’ll have to see what is available, but spinach, butternut, and green beans will probably win. Those are my favorites. I have potatoes in the house and with a helping of rice it should make the meal. And not to forget the wine. I have a crisp dry white in the fridge since last night.
We’ll probably spend the rest of the afternoon listening music. We share the same taste in music and never bother with the TV. In all, I’m looking forward to a blissful day. I always enjoy it when she’s around; it’s a pity she is just a sister to me.
Have a great Sunday!
