Got up and went for a walk, about an hour long, went to Walgreens and picked up a snack. I enjoy a nice walk, especially with headphones and CD player, though the headphones are nicer if I’m walking on back streets with fewer fast/noisy cars.

D called to ask if we want to go to a movie. I said no – M wasn’t up yet and I didn’t want to go by myself. I still want to see LOTR, so hopefully I can do so soon.

C and I went shopping and made plans for dinner next week. We also picked up a juicer so that we could dispatch the lemons given to us by my grandparents. We got a LOT of food, and we also took some food out of the cabinets that has been sitting there a long time and donated it to the food bin at Safeway (mostly canned food none of us like, some jello and koolaid mixes, some powdered sauce mixes and soup mixes).

At home I made soft tacos with ground beef (therefore using up the last seasoning packet) and we also had chips with salsa and cheese dip. I made guacamole for chips and tacos, but forgot that it was in the fridge (doh!)

After dinner I fired up the new juicer and dispatched 19 lemons, which made about 48 oz. of juice. From that I made 2 qts cherry lemonade (2 qt water, 3/4 cup lemon juice, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup grenadine) and froze the rest of the lemon juice in the ice cube trays. After this we had another round of tortilla chips (this time remembering the guacamole, though I think I’m the only one who likes it). Finally got to bed around 2 am.

I am quite enjoying having C around, and we have been having fun doing domestic things. She does dishes a lot, and she likes to cook, which is nice for all of us because M still has a hurt back and hasn’t wanted to do much lately. We have some ideas for what other foods to make this week, so I will have to wait and see how they turn out.
