Today is Saturday, now I’m watching tv and relaxing. I’ve not done anything today, I only was taken a shower, brushed my teeth and ate my breakfast which was white coffee made with almond milk, and an small croissant. After that my husband prepared lunch, he made a rice salad, really very delicious, but, I’m a bad wife.
