a night alone

randy is away this weekend for another class in the swan valley. it sounds like a neat 3 day class and i’m happy that he was able to go (ok, and i’m a bit jealous). i could have done something with friends tonight, but i realized that in our nearly 9 months of marriage that i haven’t had one night completely alone. i haven’t craved alone time and i’m not happy that randy is gone but i am ok with it. we all need alone time and though i would consider myself a people person, i was excited for a night at home with no agenda. it’s been a very productive and relaxing evening! i got off work around 4pm, went to the library (to get more cook books, of course) and have been home ever since. it is now 9:30pm and i have done 3 loads of laundry, ate dinner, made granola, lentils, kale pesto, soaked wheat to be cooked tomorrow, found new recipes to try and did a whole lot of dishes. none of it has felt like a chore and it has been completely relaxing. just me, the dog, the kitchen, the camera and food to be cooked.

dinner: green leaf lettuce with pear, goat cheese, cranberries, pine nuts and a cranberry walnut salad dressing.
