One of those days

November 4, 2008

I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and motivated - I had a whole day before me to sew and craft and make stuff. Tick some things off the long to do list. I sat down at my sewing machine, but things didn't feel right. I took a shower. Sat back down. Started sewing, but the machine jammed. A quick rethread and I was off again. This time I struggled to sew a straight line. I got up, had some breakfast, came back to the machine. This time I managed a nice straight seam but lost concentration and sewed right across where I wasn't meant to. Unpicked that. Decided to step away from the machine and pin up some new journal covers. Spilled pins everywhere. Pricked my finger a half dozen times.

So, what to do? I thought a spot of gardening might help - all that fresh air and sunshine would surely clear my head. And it was very relaxing for about 30 minutes, until a big fat black spider crawled out from among the long grass I had just put my bare hands inside of.

The only logical thing to do next was bake. Something delicious and comforting. I decided on an apple pie, and apart from a minor mishap with the pastry (I'm still learning how to work with wheat-free pastry dough, a small tip - don't leave it in the fridge and then attempt to roll it out, it is similar to using a rolling pin on a hard rock). I would have shown you a picture of the pie but there was another incident when we cut it. It tasted great though!

And this was my dinner choice - grilled lamb on lentils with a spicy eggplant relish, topped with mint and cucumber yoghurt. Despite all the components to this it really was quite easy and very delicious! After dinner I ran myself a nice bubble bath and am feeling much better. Except that it's almost time to go to bed. Oh well, there is always tomorrow I suppose.
