my second time out playing tennis since being injured 7 months ago, and it felt sooo good. despite the occasional hitting out of the court, I was feeling the sweetspot, even on my (lately) erratic two-handed backhand. and it was lovely being out in the sun: but my cheeks are a bit pink now!
after running around all day I had some friends over to make jiaozi and carrot cake and icecream. never made the dumplings vegetarian before, but it turned out fine: shiitake mushrooms, carrots, bamboo shoots, scallions, nappa cabbage, garlic, ginger, and some egg to bind it together. and one can never go wrong with homemade icecream for dessert… ahh the decadence.
