Maundy Thursday

I was more tired than I thought. I woke up at 4:00 a.m. on Thursday and decided that was too early, so I went back to sleep. I slept until an amazing 7:30 a.m.!

I found Jake already hard at work upstairs (as I said, he spent the day working from home) and Carla downstairs having a cup of coffee. I joined her.

Later on, I had some banana bread Jake had baked for my breakfast. He said he thought it was too dense, but I liked it!

In the late morning, Jake took a break and we took a quick trip to the grocery store for a few last-minute items while Carla was prepping for tonight’s dinner. When we returned, Jake returned to work on the computer. Carla and I spent the day relaxing, watching T.V. and enjoying the outside air. It was sunny and 85 degrees with a nice, delightful breeze.

Whisky and I took a long walk in their big back yard so I could stretch my legs.

I got a call from my old cubicle buddy, Michelle. I forgot to put an auto-reply on my phone at work saying I would be off. She wanted to know the name of the plotter repair company we used several years back. But, I don’t even recall that. At her suggestion, I asked Jake, but he didn’t remember, either. She wished me a happy Easter and asked me to pass that along to Jake and Carla, which I did.

Jake finally finished (or reached a good stopping point) and I wrote my late-edition Blog post.

I watched the news while they made dinner.

Dinner was tikka masala. This is an Indian dish I had never had before. It was chicken with some delicious, magically spiced sauce, with rice and warm nan bread. It was fantastic!!!

Sidebar: I am seriously going to have to ask Taj at work to start bringing me in her Mom’s leftovers. It works with Puerto Ricans, why not people from Indian?

We watched some taped TV and made it until 9:00 p.m. and then called it a night
