Sunday With Cream and Splenda

I usually start my day with a cup of coffee while working on BCDC.  A friend of mine told me I was wasting my time working on the blog instead of doing other things.  Hey…I do it in the time it takes me to drink my morning coffee.  I’d be drinking the coffee anyway, at least I’m doing something constructive while I drink it.  I started my Sunday with my usual cup with added cinnamon…it’s good for me!

Ele and I headed to Barnes & Noble early.  I had to stop at her house to print off my 15% off coupon.  Early is the right time to go there.  It’s located in the mall area and traffic can be a real pain later in the day.  Also, B&N itself is quieter and you don’t have to wrestle other people for a table in the cafe.  We did our shopping around the store, made our selections and then grabbed our coffees.

My current fav…iced coffee with cinnamon dolce sugar-free syrup, cream and Splenda.  It’s really refreshing and I enjoy it.

I’ve been hearing a lot about this and since I had the coupon, I splurged.  I’m a little sad because as I just looked up the link on the B&N website, it could have been a lot cheaper if I got it there.  😦  I think I need to check that more often before I buy in the store.  I did get the 2 other books for under $3 each because they were on the clearance and were 50% off of the already reduced price.  I guess it evened out, but from now on I’m going to check the web site before I buy any books there. 😦

When I got home Ralph and I headed over to Picasso’s Pizza for lunch.  I had my favorite…pepper and egg sandwich with American cheese. 

It’s so delicious and their rolls are always so good.  I was satisfied.

As was our plan, we watched Harry Potter: Deathly Hallows Part I.  It was enjoyable,but I’m not sure how I would have understood what people were saying if I’d seen it in the theatre.  The subtitles were a must!

When we finished the movie, Ralph decided he wanted coffee…Coffee!?! So we were off to Dunkin’ Donuts.  I told him before we left NOT to try to convince me to have a donut or any sweet treats.  He promised he wouldn’t.

My Captain America medium Iced Coffee with…cream and Splenda!  Interesting thing…since I’d just had a medium iced coffee at B&N in the morning, I could tell what a difference there was in the 2 mediums.  Dunkin’ Donuts is much bigger AND much cheaper.  Hmmm….

Two lessons learned about economy…and on a Sunday no less.

So I’m off to exercise and I have a lot to do around the house today.   It’s sunny and the birds are singing.  Could be a really good day!

Happy Monday!! 🙂

    i love that blogging and drinking your coffee is your morning tradition. it reminds me of that Morning Rituals bit you sent me from Goddess Leonie.

  3. Coffee and books – does a day get any better? Oh wait, yes, TWO coffees and one from Dunkin’ Donuts no less! I love DD coffee. And bookstores. What a great way to spend a day.
