I confessed Monday morning that I “slept in” until 5:30. I have to be honest when it comes to my walking routine, I wish I had been awake at 3:30. I didn’t get out of the house to walk until about 5 minutes to 8. By then, there were all kinds of people and cars and dogs to bark at me which really made my walk less than enjoyable. Eventually I got into my rhythm, but it took some trying. The other drawback was that it was Much hotter out than I had expected. Hopefully I’ll find a happy medium on wake ups.
I did realize one good thing during my walk today. In thinking, I realized that as I’m out there walking, I’m getting my Vitamin D! I’m not really much of an outdoor person, but this is a big bonus as far as I’m concerned. Love my morning walks!
Regardless of the fact of my late start, I got out to pick up a few things at Aldi and also a stop at Family Dollar…one of my favorite spots. I needed a new sink stopper. Got it for $1!!! Ok, by Me!
I also got some things done around the house that I’ll be happy about when I get back from our big trip. I got the curtains down and washed in both the kitchen and bathroom. I got the windows cleaned also and everything looks sparkly! This may not sound like much but when most of your house looks like a storage unit, small things give you pleasure and hope!
After my walk I had a wonderful experience. I had finished off a jar of Sunbutter and was saving the jar for overnight oats. Finally remembered on Sunday night to make some.
The jar might look a bit misshapen. That’s because I like my overnight oats warmed in the microwave. I have to say that this was extremely tasty. I splurged the other day and made a stop at Target to pick up a replacement jar (actually 2!) I had a partial gift card to use. I wish this wasn’t so expensive because I’m hooked. Not eat it with a spoon hooked like I am with regular peanut butter or Biscoff, but spread it on caramel corn rice cakes hooked. I just Love it!!
I also felt good about getting a lot of laundry done. I have got to get myself started sorting and packing for our trip. I’m still trying to unearth our suitcases!! Help! I need a Personal Assistant!!
