by Rainier on Jan. 25, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

Today was another nice and relaxing Sunday, just the way we like it.

After we dropped off Ricky, El Site Guru, at the airport yesterday  morning, we ran our errands and then we dug in for the rest of the day. We watched Burn Notice, Heroes, Supernatural, Ghost Machine and Julie & Julia. The last movie may seem a little odd to most, but apart from video games and movies, we also love to cook and eat. While our cooking may not get any Michelin stars anytime soon, it can easily measure up to any household cooking. :)
