29 Mar 2022: Living With Covid-19
Fri: TGIF and good weekend to all. Quite a contrast with the weather now as to yesterday or this morning. No worries when you have an umbrella or indoor cooking a storm! Take care, stay safe&watch your steps for all those who are out now. Was lucky to get indoors just before the sky opened up here – had tons of grocery from Giant/Tampines for the weekend and it would have been drenched!
Sat: sharing Gravlaks+SennepSause, BourbonSalmonSteak, IrishCreamPotatoes, CucumberSalad, Hollandaise, FløtestudeSjamponjonger, IkeaGrønsakskaka with cousin Karen&friends, Mylene+Lynne. It was a pleasure to meet with her friends and to make them one of my family’s favourite meals.
Pix credits to Karen and Lynne. Kick myself again for forgetting a group pix!!
Thank you for cousins’s yummy home-made Pavlova, (looked&tasted perfect even with the left overs for niece&nephew the next day). Appreciations for fruits&flowers from Lynne&Mylene.
322km/200m Columbia-Charleston, SC/USA 1st-born&her team was 2nd overall. First Masters and now nursing some of their angry hamstring. Congratulations to all for a good run – so proud of her. Pix credits to those who took these pix since I was unable to be there to do it – thank you.
Sun: belated Bday lunch for niece – a repeat of yesterday’s menu. Appreciations Les&Ivy for yummy Sunday’s dinner with quite an amazing combination of Indonesian foods together with steak+durians for dessert, including 2bottles of his basket-wines to take away keeping my own supply from being empty!!

Mon: do not think I can repeat another weekend like last weekend again without help – will need this week to recover from grocery shopping&cooking and eating like this. And what has age got to do with this???
Tue: group size has increased from 5 to 10. Hope that will remain during 2nd-born visit next month. Glad that masks do not have to be worn when outdoors as I am so out of breath walking with the mask on, but will still keep it on when there are ppl near me.
