こんばんは!How are you doing tonight? Can you believe that we have reached the end of January already? Time really flies.

As expected, it was very warm today… I think the high temperature got up to 81° F! It was so nice outside that I went for a 2-mile run. That felt great, and I broke a sweat early on it was so warm.

Before the run, I went to the market to buy things for dinner, but I made sure to go the the extra-large supermarket nearby to get some Pickapeppa. Do you know this sauce? It’s from Jamaica, and it is delicious.

My mom was born and raised in Jamaica, so when I was growing up, we had a bottle of Pickapeppa in our pantry at all times. We usually used the original (brown) sauce, but there was also the hot pepper version in a smaller bottle. I didn’t really like that when I was young, but now, that is the one I prefer. This morning my kids had some Jamaican patties for breakfast (my Mom made them) but we ran out of the red Pickapeppa. That’s why I made it a point to go to the market that I knew carried the red version.

Well, it’s only 8:15pm now but I am exhausted. I think the combination of the afternoon run and the fact that I woke up at 5am means that I need to go to bed early tonight. Tomorrow the kids have the day off from school which means I don’t have to prepare breakfast for them… that means I can sleep in a little bit later too!

Let’s have a productive Monday!

おやすみなさい!

  1. Thanks for following my blog. I am enjoying my visit to yours. Very clever idea about asking folks to buy you a cup of coffee. I wonder if you get many. Best of luck with your blog!

    1. Thank you Tony! I’m still waiting for that first cup of coffee… ☕
