Last night, I made a pretty unsuccessful pork shoulder for dinner. I braised it in apple cider with apples, carrots and onion in the crock pot. Something I've done before, but yesterday, it was so bland. And almost greasy. Not the best thing I've ever made, by a long shot. But still, sitting at dinner with Peter and MMJ, chatting about teaching 9th graders Daoism and Thanksgiving plans. It was so lovely.
We made lime jello later on and Peter forced us to watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (hate that stupid show!), but still.
And this morning! Getting ready together and drinking coffee and having someone around to tell me that my outfit looked cute! That's one of the things I miss the most about having roommates. It is so great to have an adorable person around that likes clothes and understands what jewelry you should wear with what, and can actually form an opinion when you ask if you should be wearing flats or boots with your outfit.
I really like this house guest thing so far.
