It’s Monday (May 11, 2020)


Hello and happy Monday. Hope you all had a good weekend! I had a nice Mother’s Day on Sunday, with a big sushi feast for dinner.

A little Mother’s Day present to myself was that I got to pick up some plants I had ordered from our local ecology centre – I got some sage, thyme, a mini bell pepper, a tomato plant, and hyssop anise.

And unfortunately I can’t do much in the garden for the next few days. I seem to have done something to my knee and it’s been hurting when walking around and if it’s bent for too long.

For breakfast this morning, toast with butter





With my grocery delivery last week, I can make some spaghetti carbonara with bacon. I had been trying to get my hands on Parmesan for a while and finally got it!

My kids aren’t fans of carbonara though but too bad. We are not the kind of family with different meals for kids and adults, unless I am cooking something specifically spicy, especially with a premade paste like laksa. I sometimes sneak in chili flakes into my pasta in an attempt to get the kids to be able to eat spicy food (still not working).

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date



  1. Your sushi feast looks wonderful, and happy belated Mother’s Day!! I am sorry to hear about your knee — I have something similar with my foot that’s been preventing me from doing my usual exercise routines (walking two miles or stair-running), so I’ve been doing horrible yoga. I am so not strong and not bendy. 😛
