Plans for the day

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Good Morning Friends!
It's another blustery morning here, a perfect day to make a big pot of soup! Today, I will make one of my favorites. My soup will have a little of all of the fresh veggies I have on hand: carrots, celery, onions, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spinach, red peppers, green peppers, zucchini, fresh parsley. I will either add water or low sodium vegetable stock a bit of salt, pepper, thyme and basil. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer for 30 minutes or so. What a great way to get lots of veggies without a lot of calories! Add some chicken to your serving and now you have your protein too!

I'm off to workout then do the school run. Next, hubs and I will get to watch DGD for a bit. Then, we will hit the "Y" and hubs will swim and I will probably walk the track since I'm doing my workout now.

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday . . . . and HAPPY SPRING!!!

    It's a blustery, rainy day here as well and I wish I could be home making that soup. Instead I'm sitting in a lobby while the kids have their counseling/therapy stuff going on.

Making the best of it

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Good Morning! Happy Tuesday! I'm going to make it a great day today, how about you?

It was definitely hard to crawl out from underneath those nice heavy blankets and leave the flannel sheets behind this morning! If I thought yesterday was bad, today the wind chill is -4. Yes, that's right friends . . . 4 degrees BELOW zero! emoticon LOL!!! Oh well, we take what we get and make the best of it! My resolve not to get my winter coat out again . . . well let's just say I will not be leaving home without it! Today is my shopping day, so I will be out and about all morning. Then, hubs and I will make a 2 hour drive to have lunch with his Aunt and Uncle. Instead of remaining home and being all cozy in front of the fire, I'll be in my car with the seat warmer on and the heater cranked on high . . . and ALL of the vents pointed at me! LOL!!! Yep! I'll be toasty!

Got to run now . . . literally . . . time for the morning workout! Have a great day!

Really????

Monday, March 18, 2013

Ok, so last year by March 17th, I had peas, onions, lettuce, radishes, and garlic planted in my garden. Today, we are under a winter storm warning! Uh . . . excuse me . . . but I was hoping winter was at an end? You know, bring on the warmer temps, close up the storehouses of snow, let loose with a few spring showers, . . . I had determined NOT to wear my winter coat again! Hmmmm . . . maybe I shouldn't have been so adamant in my decision. The high is only suppose to be 27 today . . . and hubby was planning on us taking a long ride on the Harley tomorrow . . . I THINK NOT!!!! I know, I know . . . in a few months I'll be begging for some cooler weather! Key thought: Just be content with what I'm given . . . Things could be worse! Have a great day!

    I've been saying "It's Spring!" and actually leaving the house without my heavier jacket because I'm sooooo tired of lugging them around! Sorry you are still having winter storm warnings. We are definitely having March weather.... wind, rain, sun, hail, sun.... Too early to be planting much here though in a garden.

Family Time

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Good Morning Friends!

I skipped blogging this week. After doing it for 7 day straight, I guess it didn't become a habit! It was a short night last night. DS#1, DIL, and DGD stopped by last evening. Also DS#2, DS#3 and his DGF came by. DS#4 was beside himself with happiness at having all the brothers here! Of course, Grandma and Grandpa were pretty happy to see DGD! It's had been a couple of week; they had been out of town on vacation. I made a big salad and DH ordered pizzas. We watched hockey and then the UFC fights ( hey! When you have so many sons, are outnumbered!!) One of the fighters was a guys DS#1 use to wrestle in his younger days. Always fun to see someone you know make it to the big time. Anyway, fight was not over until after midnight. Old habits die hard, so I was up at my normal 4:00 this morning, doing some sparking, and then heading off to workout. I think a nap might be on my agenda this afternoon! Have a great St. Patrick's Day!

Ok, so I do another blog

Saturday, March 09, 2013

Good morning! It's Saturday! YAY!!! I am always ready for the weekend, change up the routine a bit. Normally, I can enjoy being at home and not have to head out the door. But today, DS #4 is involved in a piano competition. So, we were out the door early again. I did get my workout in, I even ran a bit this morning. Time to start working back into the running. I think I will run a few errands while we are out and then be home the rest of the day. Hubs is gone all day working a wrestling tournament and it is raining out side. I think I will get a jump on Monday and do some home blessing!! Enjoy your weekend!!
