Happy Monday! Today I am best visually represented by this photo:
Which is to say fat, cozy and in no mood to extricate myself from this couch groove.
Mostly because of this, which Jason made on Friday night. (I helped! I made rice and prepped stuff and also kept his drink glass filled.) Homemade saag paneer and rotis. Enough to feed an army, or at least all of us throughout the entire weekend and again for me, for lunch today. (We made the cheese using this super easy DIY kit, the saag is a bit of a mash-up of these two recipes, and this is the bread.)
Saturday morning I went to the YMCA to work out, then promptly came home and shoved another bowl of it in my face. Goals!
We also took the kids out for some local exploring.
Our poor little downtown continues to steadily recover from the flood, and the boys' favorite vintage toy store has finally reopened. (You might remember the owner as the hero dude from this video.)
(The sidewalks aren't as pretty as they used to be, but I'll take this over GIANT GAPING DOOM CHASMS.)
The kids were SUPER excited to see this...whatever...and pose with it. I have since Googled it and uh, no, they've never played that game, I wouldn't let them play that game, I don't know how they know about that game and so this is just some A+++ parenting all around.
This, on the other hand... Come on.
So I have just discovered one cat has spent the morning rolling around in some leftover bread flour and ghee we neglected to wipe off the counters and probably needs a bath. And his claws trimmed. Probably not in that order. I will try to document the process with photos, which hopefully won't turn out too bloody.
I also discovered the OTHER cat has taken to sleeping in my gym bag, and that's why she smells funny and could also use a bit of a freshening up.
Self-grooming creatures my ass.
