Feeling Domestic

18 Nov

Today is a very happy day because it signifies 6 months of wedded bliss! It’s hard to believe it’s been half a year. To celebrate, I did all sorts of wife-y things all weekend. I bought Mark a sweet card (because I’m sentimental like that), did some cooking and baking, and took care of all sorts of housework.

Saturday I made my famous pumpkin knot rolls for the first annual Friendsgiving celebrated with a group of our friends. I’d give out the recipe, but I’d have to charge you royalties every time you baked them. (Just kidding, I use this recipe right here.)

I killed the yeast and then the rolls came out burned on the bottom and doughy in the middle. Not a winning moment for my baking skills. At least the turkey rocked.

MFI Update: After a thorough warm-up of mopping, vacuuming, and laundry, I tried a very short easy run this afternoon. I didn’t have pain while running and just slight soreness afterwards. Since I’ve also been on my feet doing housework and errands all day, I’m RICE-ing for a little while before bed. Seems like a success but I will probably wait until next weekend to try again. Small steps!
