Three things I do when Smokey is gone (which doesn’t happen very often).
- Netflix and knit. I watch things that I don’t think he would enjoy. Midsomer Murders if I want something light, You if I want something dark. Others on my TBWatched list: Jessica Jones, Bojack Horseman, Call the Midwife, West Wing, and many others.
- Eat Indian food. I discovered these microwavable meals back when I was working during tax season. It was the ingredients list that sold me; there was nothing that I could not pronounce. No preservatives, no weird chemicals! After I quit working I no longer had easy access to Cub Foods where I had discovered them initially, so I resorted to Amazon. I cook some brown rice and mix it half and half with the lentils or whichever Tasty Bite package I opened. Presto! Two easy and healthy meals!
- Get up and get dressed as soon as I wake up. Because he is a night owl, he sleeps much later than I do, and I hate to risk waking him by scuffling around the bedroom finding clothes and shoes (and hand-knit socks to match my outfit!).
