Firstly, I've been watching a lot of Netflix. A lot of Idiot Abroad, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, and some D- and C-list horror movies. But that's not my only excuse!
Secondly, I've been eating a lot of salads and stir-fries. Not super adventurous. Especially now that I kind of love green peppers. (In fact, they were in every meal I had yesterday! Talk about progress!)
Thirdly, it has been outrageously humid this whole week. Chicago has been itching for a giant thunderstorm since at least Monday. The forecasts have predicted rain every day. We've had about two itty-bitty little rainstorms. Nothing to really break the humidity. Last night, it finally stormed.
What we've all been waiting for.
Humidity doesn't sound like it should be such big deal. But in a house with a gas stove and no central air conditioning, it means you're not going to be doing a lot of cooking. Most adventurous meals happen to be hot meals.
Next week, it should be less humid. Hopefully I'll be able to adventure then. And less lazy....
