Wizard Day!

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Im off to see the Wizard! The wonderful wizard of Oz. Really, I am having a fun day with two best friends. We're headed to Chattanooga (as in TN) to visit a museum and have lunch at a restaurant overlooking the river.

New Flavors and A Paddle

Monday, May 28, 2012

I discovered a new food combination today. For lunch, I baked a sweet potato and after opening it and mashing the insides, I added a teaspoon of coconut butter and a tablespoon of pineapple tidbits with a bit of juice. The mixtures of flavor were so good. I'm going to have that more often. The rest on the plate was fresh baby spinach and sliced tomatoes and left over roasted vegetables (green beans, mushrooms, red pepper, and grape tomatoes).

Took my kayak out for a paddle down the lake today.

Heavens Above!

Friday, May 25, 2012

Heavens above, yesterday was quite a day! One of those days that makes you look forward to a long, hot, soak in the tub and a glass of wine in the evening.

I had been waiting on a local handyman to come and do a few things in the yard. He was here a week ago and did some planting. I had other little jobs that were not urgent so between last week and today, he was working for other people on their urgent projects. I had a meeting scheduled for 10 to noon yesterday and first the guy who mows for me showed up at 8:15 and the handyman at 8:45. I got both settled with instructions and left for my meeting. The meeting ran long and I got home just in time to answer questions of the handyman about where to plant new shrubs and greet the housekeeper and get her started.

The afternoon brought it’s own multitude of problems. The last job for the handyman was to replace a battery in one of the smoke detectors. Needless to say that the smoke detector didn’t want to cooperate and continued to “beep”. So I had to call the electrician. In the meantime, we had a power outage and while my automatic generator came on, it didn’t run very long. Ten minutes into the outage, my smoke detector corrected itself and quit “beeping” and a few minutes later the generator quit without the power coming back on. By now, I am glad that I had called the electrician. My husband decided to escape the turmoil and go for the mail. As he drove out of the drive, he found the power outage problem. It was a tree down on the lines. I called the electric company and they sent a crew out to remove the tree which in turn restored the power. The electrician never showed up so this morning I have to call him and cancel and call the company that services the generator.

Just one of those days. All small stuff, but a day crammed full of the small stuff.

Breakfast this morning was a bowl of mixed fruit with chia seeds. It had cantaloupe, watermelon, grapefruit and chia. Then one tablespoon of almond butter.

Lunch was this.

A vegan panini of red roasted pepper, mushrooms, spinach and Daiya cheese. Yummy!

    Yum! I don't buy Daiya cheese, but if you served it to me, I'd eat it! (I try to avoid the fat it carries.)
