I had sent an email to an Irish cousin checking in as I had not heard from him in a while. This led to some very interesting family gossip I can't mention as yet.
We even had some snow on the balcony.
I watched The Secret on the weekend while embroidering. It is a 2016 Northern Irish ITV mini-series based on Let This Be Our Secret, Belfast journalist Deric Henderson's account of the double murder of Lesley Howell and Constable Trevor Buchanan, whose bodies were discovered in a fume-filled car in the garage of a property in Castlerock, County Londonderry, in Northern Ireland in May 1991.
I also watched Detainment through the Library app Kanopy, it was heartbreaking. It is a 2018 Irish short drama film about the murder of James Bulger. It was nominated for the Best Live Action Short Film at the 91st Academy Awards.
Saturday spaghetti and homemade meatballs with focaccia. Leftovers made lunch on Monday.
Sunday BBQ chicken roast potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
Monday chicken wings fries and celery sticks
Tuesday pork lettuce wraps
Wednesday chicken Alfredo with a rotisserie chicken.
Thursday salmon, salad. I thought I should bake for breakfast next week, when the kitchen is being demolished. I made cream cheese banana bread and added some blueberries.
Steak, baked potato and broccoli. I also made chimichurri.
There isn't much reading going on lately.
I gave up on Cold Heart, I just didn't care after a while.
I started There's No Such Thing as an Easy Job, read a few pages and decided it is not for me. I also started The Family Chao and only read a couple of chapters and gave up. It wasn't bad but I wasn't in the mood for it.
I finally got a reader, The Christie Affair - historical fiction.
