I personally know people who got this flu way worse than me, but wow. I am done. Thursday was my worst day with Friday a close second.
Friday I think I was in bed, knitting, with two movies by 6pm. Nim did some good snuggling while I knitted.
Looper. Where do I begin with this one? First off, the kid in it kind of blows my mind. I actually stopped the movie to to a search on how they got some of that acting out of him, because those were some impressive scenes being basically carried by a very young child. This is a sci-fi film and it has some violence, but it has some very stunning visuals as well. I actually got really frustrated at the end, not because of the ending, but because I wasn't ready for it to be over.
Today I made another batch of lentil soup based on the Chocolate-Covered Katie version. This time I was basically gutting my fridge of all the produce I am not eating because I am sick. I also added quinoa after about 45 minutes of the lentils cooking and of course coconut milk again.
Nim's newest thing is the broccoli stalks. He loves them. There is some literature out there suggesting that if broccoli makes up over 10% of your dog's diet it will make them sick. Nim is a big dog so the stalk will be a blip in his calories, but I include this information for smaller or fragile dog owners out there.
I completely forgot to mention The Chocolate Shoebox bake sale in Seattle this weekend! This is their last bake sale as the store is closing. This one benefits Old Dog Haven (one of my favorites) and New Moon Farm.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
