What started with a beautiful sunrise yesterday…
Finished with a beautiful sunset…
Unfortunately, we were driving at the time and the photo didn’t turn out as pretty as the actual sunset. I will get better at this!
We were rushing at the time to meet our friends Debbie and Kristen to car pool to a benefit for one of our WW family members, Barb. Ralph hadn’t met Debbie before and they got along really well. He’s already a big fan of Kristen so it was overall a fun evening. We were disappointed that our friend Pat couldn’t be with us for various reasons. We spent the evening texting her and reading from The Snark Handbook. I believe this was the book we had. It was so much fun reading all of the clever ways to insult someone. I won’t go into why we were doing it, but it was great fun.
After my loss at WW, I was on a mission to be good. I had oatmeal with raisins, chia seeds, ground flax and cinnamon with Almond Breeze for breakfast. Tasty and filling as always.
I had 2 clementines for “lunch!” I just needed something to hold me over before the benefit. I thought I was good at the benefit…I had a mid-sized portion of baked ziti and a large portion of a lovely salad with unidentified dressing. I drank water and then coffee with 2 cookies. I won’t tell you how many Ralph ate!!
I’ve decided that to accomplish the things I need to do, I should get a game plan…yikes, I’m just discovering that?!? I’m not going to get too carried away so I’m going to plan a day ahead and make myself stick to it.
Today’s project is cleaning out the fridge and all of the jars filled with little bits of “stuff” that is all probably past date -you remember how good I am with that! 😉 I’ll try to get to the freezer as well. If time works for me, I’ll try to get to my pantry cabinet in the hallway. I planned this yesterday ( see I was thinking ahead!) and I’m going to stick to it.
Tomorrow I have something special planned to do for Ralph, so we’ll see what else I can accomplish. If I do have time, I’m going to go through all of my kitchen cabinets to look at what’s there, what I can get rid of, what I want to keep but don’t use often so that I can pack. I think I’ll work first on the cabinet that houses all of my spices and other such goodies. This will keep me busy for the next few days and as I go through things, I’ll pitch and pack. I like that!
So time to get breakfast started. I want to be finished so that I can listen to my friends Valerie and Mark Andruss do their Foolkiller Folk show on KKFI 90.1 FM in Kansas City. It is just so very exciting to me that I can listen to them with them in Missouri and me in New Jersey. My only problem is that I always mix up the time difference. Not so this morning, Val posted a reminder on Facebook ( I think she does that just for me!) so I know this is the week to listen.
So everyone have a lovely Sunday. I’ll say Happy Valentine’s Day today to start you day tomorrow. Ralph’s going to be happy…he’s getting peanut M&M’s for breakfast for Valentine’s Day! Well, he’s getting something else too…but I have to bake it first!! Onward!
