Great news, my eye seems to be fully recovered and I'm stitching away so all is right in my world again. I used the eye wash and after DR Momma called, I went and got some lubrication eye drops which I think did the trick. It was a rainy spring weekend so I just hung around our home. I did make a trip into Karlsruhe by city train and I went to the flea market (called Flohmarkt) over here but the rain made it just too miserable for me to hang out for long. I went to the one "Mexican" place we had found and after not getting my mexican fix in 9 months, the food was pretty darn good. I had a margarita and enchiladas which were tasty just not spicy. Oh well, I still had a nice meal that I didn't have to cook or clean up after.
I worked on Pink Hill Manor and just about to finish it up later this week. I'm doing it to honor my niece, Rachel Elizabeth . Her favorite color is pink so this girly pink one was a perfect choice for her. I want to start Moonlight Visitor next so I've got incentive to get PHM done. I don't allow myself any UFO/WIP because I know myself too well and if I ever set it aside, I would never pick it up again. In my 25 plus years of stitching, I have only 1 UFO and it is Midnight Watch that I started stitching the week that I lost my Maggie Mae kitty. I've not worked on it since Clarice joined our family and I think it's because it's an acknowledgement of Maggie's too short life that I just don't want to face. I used to be such a slow, slow stitcher that I only finished 1 or 2 projects a year so WIPs just didn't seem right but now that I'm a quicker stitcher not to mention my attention span is shorter, I could get in real trouble if I had too many starts and no "deadlines".
Ok now on to the reason for the title of this post......I fixed myself a great chicken sandwich for dinner. Yummo and so, so simple. I marinated boneless chicken breasts in balsamic salad dressing for a few hours then baked it at 350 for 30 minutes. I bought some great hard baguettes that I sliced and toasted in the oven. When the chicken was done I sliced it thinly and popped it back in the oven with a slice of swiss cheese just until cheese melted. I brushed a little dressing on my toasted roll then added my sliced cheesy chicken. It was divine and I munched happily away plus I have one more for lunch today.
Make your day a special one and do something that brings you pure joy today.
