For some reason, the somewhat dazed feeling I was having in New Mexico has followed me back to New Jersey. Here I can blame it on the humidity. I really think it does something to me and not in a good way! The air is heavy and I have a hard time breathing. I need that clear mountain air again! 😉
Saturday morning I got to go to my Weight Watchers meeting and see all of my WW buddies who I’ve missed. Unfortunately because of the holiday weekend some of them weren’t there, but it was such fun to get back into the routine and feel like I know what I’m doing. Weight Watchers will always feel like home to me.
After WW, I made a quick stop at Goodwill. Now I had stopped there on Friday and picked up two books, Saturday I got five more. Now don’t judge me, three of them were for sister Ele, only two for me. I also got a wonderful huge glass measuring cup/mixing bowl. It’s still in the car so no photo, but it was only $3.00 and I know it would be a lot more in a store. Very good deal!
Our friend Jim from Washington is visiting for the weekend and we went on a quick adventure. No photos, but we went to a place called Gary’s Gem Garden where those of us who love rocks and stones can ooh and aah over them. Ele uses various stones in her Reiki practice and needed to get some. We’ve loved this place for years.
Of course, somehow we ended up at Barnes & Noble. I perused the Nooks again. The price has been reduced and I’m really being tempted now. I have to add them up again, but I think I almost have enough gift cards for the Nook tablet which is similar to an iPad. We’ll see. Even if I don’t have enough yet, there’s a certain birthday coming up in October and I can ask for gift cards…hmmm…
Didn’t buy anything, but had a hibiscus Refresher. Very tasty but the little raspberry pips got caught in my teeth. Guess I didn’t really need to tell you that, did I?
Dinner was planned at Ele’s house. I, of course made the obligatory Big Salad and toted it along. Dinner was simple and delicious…
Spaghetti and salad…Yum! The meat eaters had sausage. I should have searched my freezer, I probably have a veggie sausage in there somewhere!
Ele made the most delicious banana bars from “funky” bananas a co-worker had given her. I must confess that this was my second piece. My reasoning? I forgot to take a picture of the first piece and I NEEDED a picture right? Right?!?! I rest my case.
For those of you who asked about my hair cut, here’s a photo of me and my lovely sister.
Pretty much the same hair I always have these days. It’s easy, I don’t have to tax my brain thinking about it. There are days I wish I still had long hair. I even have dreams where I still have long hair. When I wake up, I’m always disappointed. Maybe I’ll grow it. If I could get it to do all kinds of spiky things while it’s short, I’d like it better. Haven’t found a way to make that happen. I like my glasses in this photo, though. I’m easily distracted today, don’t you think? Ooh, Shiny….
We’re off to breakfast in a little while to a new diner we’ve never tried. Should be interesting.
