May the fourth be with you. Also, bonus days because someone just caught up on all these blog posts! *please don’t jinx it*

Good long, somewhat productive day. Fair to say I didn’t sleep for nearly 22 hours.

Slept the whole day. Maybe because of the all-dayer I pulled yesterday. Also finally wrote a post on Medium – this was a post I had begun writing somewhere around the end of March.

It was a big day in the kitchen! Made some lemon juice – check out the second picture on April 30 here.
I also tried out a recipe from Anjali’s blog, My Digital Verandah. She is a blogger I followed recently and is a private chef based in France! Her profile is wonderful and real, which is only an extension of the person I have gotten to know through DMs. So, new friend? 🙂 Do follow her on Instagram as well!
Also, I tried out Fathi’s beef curry and boy, I was so pleasantly surprised with myself, haha.

We got more mangoes from Mr Edirisinghe, yay. I attempted the second rendition of my no-bake stovetop pizza, without much luck. At least these were mini bite-sized so I guess that’s okay.

We got a curfew pass to check on the grandparents because Granddad’s dementia has been acting up more than usual. The ‘trip’ was also good for Mum who seemed to be coming down with a slight dose of cabin fever. On our way back, we found චූන් පාන් lorry and bought bread and buns, after so long! Also came across John Legend’s legendary fried chicken and left it on an overnight brine yesterday and this would probably be the closest (yet healthier) thing I would get to KFC for a long time!

Didn’t work out today after working out for three days in a row because my body felt a bit tired. However, despite sleeping in for a while, I made a list for today and wrote nine blog posts, including this. It was a long, difficult day, but we are making some slow, steady progress. Here’s to perseverance.
So tell me, what were you grateful for these past few days?
