Marcus works a lot of nights. Sometimes we have dinner together before he heads off to the shop but often times it’s just Abby and I. So several nights a week we have girlie dinners. Last night was one of these nights. We set up a picnic on the coffee table and watched a video while we munched away. Last night’s dinner was an apple, a nectarine, a plum, strawberries, fresh peas, sliced cheese, and roasted potatoes and broccoli. I also made myself an omelet from my friend Sophie’s cookbook.
Abby loves when we all get to eat together so when it’s just the two of us, I try to make it really fun.
In other news, I was the hero of my office at 6:45 this morning after rescuing one of my coworkers from a giant beetle. And by “giant” I mean “the size of my finger nail”. We are city folk. My hero status was short lived. Rather than squashing him as my coworkers wanted, I showed mercy on the poor creature and carried him down in the elevator and released him into the wilds of the financial district. He now calls the top of a garbage can on Market Street home.
So tell me, do you ever have girlie dinners? And how do you handle bugs? Wow. Those two questions really shouldn’t be grouped together like that. Oh well, it’s Friday.
Have a great weekend.
