A Return to Sushi-Making Dinners

Sushi dinnerToday I used the same picture for my two photo prompts. The prompts were “Return” and “Dinner”. This photo marks my return to sushi-making as a viable dinner option as well as marking our dinner tonight.

The rest of the day wasn’t anywhere near as interesting as the sushi. I had work, my headache peaked to an 8 right as work was finishing. Yay. I took “rescue meds” and drove home. I got a nice little break when it was just me and a quiet, sick Hufflepuff in the house, and then I drove over to pick up Gryffindor. She doesn’t expect to be picked up, which makes me all the more willing to pick her up. (Ravenclaw was going to a friend’s house, so I didn’t have to pick her up)

The rest of the afternoon went swimmingly. Gryffindor actually did all of her homework before she had to leave for her church activity! Woot! Ravenclaw was late coming home from her friend’s house, so she wasn’t able to finish before leaving, but as she tends to have a lot less homework than Gryffindor, I’m not very concerned.

While they were gone I got to have a very nice, long chat with my sister-in-law. It was lovely! I miss her – she and my brother live just outside of NYC in their new-to-them house in Connecticut. I’m hoping to visit them soon, but moving into our new house is going to have to take precedence. :( I’ll ask for pics the next time my folks visit, though. I only know how the house looked before.

The Chosen One and I are still looking for HP readings for the wedding. I came up with a few that he didn’t love, so now we’re searching again.

I did make a nice batch of rice pudding tonight, in addition to the sushi, and it’s warming me up as I feel worn out and headachy. Just plain rice pudding with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Yum.

Here’s hoping tomorrow has a lower headache rating than today, and that Hufflepuff’s fever has broken so she can go to school tomorrow. Oh, and that The Chosen One’s cold goes all the way away. And that we can get heat in the new house soonest.
