Hi fellow foodies
How is everyone doing? Wow!! we have come to the end of another month and a week. This month went by so fast, there were days where I lost track of what day and time it was. I sometimes had to look at my phone to double-check that it was Monday, Tuesday, or whatever days it is. The weather has been kind of crazy here, rain, windy, cold, and then a mini-heatwave. pfff
I got the chance to sit in the garden and do some work early this morning. There seems to be a lot of noise going on these past few months. Most people are renovating their homes which means a lot of noise, from drilling, banging, sawing and of course, screaming.
This is definitely not ideal since I work from home. Working at home does have its ups and downs, but this is just going overboard I have never heard this much noise these past two years working from home as I have these past 2 months. I have to admit that I am quite upset because I had to cancel many lessons due to this situation. I am not the kind of person who gets angry very easily, I do get upset but on Monday I was beyond upset I was furious!!
There was so much noise that I could not hear myself nor the student. I apologized to the student, she understood and I had to end the lesson early. I have lost count as to how many lessons I have canceled due to this situation. 🙁 So, to calm down I went to the kitchen and started cooking…This is my go-to de-stress activity. I cooked up a storm that day, and the Spicy Seafood recipe was the first recipe I chose to prepare and a great choice for a chilly day. 🙂
In total, I made 4 different recipes on Monday, so I do have a lot more to post 🙂 That’s about it everyone and I am sorry for my ranting but I just needed to get it out there!!
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!! 🙂
