Apologies and Sundays

So I have taught three different female students named Katie in the last three years. Two of them twice in that time and they all spell their names with the "ie" ending. I originally got their names wrong using the "y" ending until I was conditioned to go the other way. Sorry for writing it the other way. I did notice after the fact. I even tried to make up for it. I apologize for writing your name incorrectly.

Today was a pretty good day. We woke up late and the kids watched some videos. The furnace was turned on and then we went to the first fire of the year in the wood burning stove. So much nicer. I managed to get my yoga on before heading to work for a few hours. I arrived home at 3:00 and then it was off to ice skating with the new skates. Fantastic and they cost the same as a one time rental. I really can't get over the amazing value I found there. Pre dinner we went to the place where UPS arrives and picked up a package my older sister sent for the kids. The presents arrived! Yeah!! Right before dinner the kids called and said thanks. Nice.

Dinner this evening was lovely. The wife had solicited my opinion earlier and as usual, post gluttonous weekend, I asked for vegetarian. The soup was made with some post Thanksgiving turkey stock. So rich, so flavourful. The beans and lentils had been soaking since last night so they added a nice base. With a mixture of veggies and some of the frozen turkey leftovers it was exactly what this blustery late October afternoon was calling for. The vegetarian stir fry was highlighted by fresh ginger. The daughter kept mentioning how much she liked the cinnamon flavour. It took us a while to catch on that she was talking about the ginger. Tofu, red peppers, celery, onions, mushrooms and carrots all sauteed in a ginger, garlic, soy sauce, molasses, vinegar and ketchup. Too good. After the second bowl of soup I am stuffed. But it is that good soup stuffed which leaves in about half an hour and lets you have another snack later, should one be so inclined.

Tomorrow is another day. Gotta go get ready for it.
