I feel like I was a homebody this weekend, although that’s not necessarily true. I was out from 8 a.m. to sometime after 5 p.m. Saturday, working on a church event, enjoying a book swap (and making new friends!), drinking coffee and grocery shopping. But when I returned home that night, I locked myself in, cooked and went to bed early.
I spent time with friends Sunday and again last night, but I’ve also been able to find time to sit around the apartment by myself—a very important thing in my life. And one perk of doing that? Eating in. Last night I threw together an easy guacamole, using whatever was in my fridge (and a few sale items from this weekend’s grocery trip). I ate nearly all of it for dinner and a late-night snack. Tonight’s goal? Finish it off when I return home from a walk with friends.
Best of all, I think that (well into my twenties) I’ve finally learned to like vegetables.
