The Most Significant thing you do Today:
The most significant thing I already DID today was poach 2 eggs perfectly, and serve them for breakfast on toasted English muffins for my husband (the secret is white wine in the water, brought just to a simmer). And yesterday I fried a couple of eggs over easy for him, again that delighted him, and the day before that a soft-boiled egg served in an egg cup.
First time in his life! I had revived a family custom for myself some months ago, but he claims he never experienced such a thing with egg cups. Well, he has now, and will again, I promised him.
His confinement in bed, due to back problems, is turning me into a cook, like it or not (mostly not). I can sometimes take him out for other meals, or have something delivered, but for breakfast I'm on my own.
And gawd, he demands his breakfast! The moment I wake up he's prodding me, and I've always been a sluggish waker. It's sorta like the plant "Audrey II" in Little Shop of Horrors
: FEED ME!!! So I've hadda learn quick. And begun to set out everything in the kitchen the night before, because I'm so groggy in the morning.
Well, I guess not all that bad. Not when I see the joy on his face at pleasing him, and my own satisfaction at accomplishing something I never did before. It's just that it takes me outside my comfort zone. At a time in my life when I'm becoming more resistant to new things, and, dare I say it, more conservative in my outlook?
