I woke up yesterday on the wrong side of the bed. I didn’t want to do anything, but I had an appointment to go to physical therapy. I begrudgingly went. Mike gave me 4 new stretches to do on top of the ones he has given me before and he wants me to continue to ride the stationary bike. I am now up to 7 minutes. I am slowly building my endurance levels. This aspect makes me happy. I still felt grumpy. I still feel a deep seated sadness. I feel like Nancy Kerrigan when she is crying out why, why, why when she got hit in her knee. People who know me well know that I am not a complainer nor a whiner, but I have small moments where I just want to whine and mope. That is what I did on Thursday. I moped. Even though I moped I did some things. Megan came and she helped me with some chores and then she invited me to her birthday get together next Thursday. I will be going. And then later on I recreated the kale recipe that Summer, Karen, and I saw being made by chef Rebecca Katz last weekend. It turned out wonderful. I did it a bit different. I used honey instead of maple syrup because I didn’t have maple syrup and it still tasted great.
Here is the recipe in case you may want to try it. I will warn you I didn’t exactly measure. I just kind of add spices until it tasted right to me. That is how I cook. I am happy to say most chefs do it this way.
Here is what you will need:
