Bye-Bye Old Books

Saturday, January 30, 2010

Can't believe how much I have gotten done today! Have about 10 books to take to the used book store and about 10 to discard. Also, emptied 8 notebooks and the contents are going bye-bye. Now have room for the stack of books on the dining room table.
Well, back to work - just took a break to eat some salad and a couple of taquitos.
So yummy with wasabi.


Recipes and a Birthday!

Sunday, January 24, 2010

Thank you SERENA_DOVE for the Chicken Recipe suggestion. It is definitely a keeper. Served it with noodles and steamed carrots.
Have found a couple more recipes here at SparkPeople I am going to try.

Today is my daughter's birthday (she is now 46) and I would love to fix tacos for her and the family - but we are fighting a flu bug - and that is something I do not want to share. In June she will graduate finish Nurses' training. I am so proud of her - she is married with 4 children, Jordon in the Navy, stationed in SanDiego, Samantha, 16, Jenni, 12, and Jill, 9. They also have horses, dogs, cats, chickens...... Need I say more about what a busy little lady she is. I am so proud of her.


Learning to Cook

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Another son comes over for "dinner and a movie" Mon. evenings.
And, last night we watched "Julia & Julie". It almost makes me want to
learn to cook.
I was a single Mom with 3-5 kids at a time - each one had
to spend a year with Dad - but they were ready to come back home.
So, I never really learned to Cook. And, now i just don't like to spend
the time.
So, I have a few favorites that I fix. I collect recipes i would like to try -
but just don't. Mon. evening when Greg comes over would be a good time
to try new ones.
Perhaps that would be a good goal to set - a new recipe each week.
Must think about that this week.

Yesterday's Walk

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Was going to take a walk yesterday- that is part of my resolve I have not started yet - walking. Did lots of cleaning in our apartment and then to WalMart.

I parked out and as I walked in, I decided i would just take that walk in the store. So, as I picked up from my list, I walked across the store at least 5 times - and then back out to my car. I tried to count the steps, but just has to estimate.

But, at least, I did some walking!! YEAH!!

I received a box of old pictures from my sister and am having so much fun going thru them. Many pictures of when we were growing up - pictures of family members thru the years - and - best of all!! - pictures of our parents thru the years.
I have wanted to do some scrapbooking and now is a great opportunity.
Would like to do a scrapbook for my sister!! Oh, what fun that will be.

    Isn't it wonderful to spend time "re-living" cherished moments!

    That's awesome! :) I have done the same recently and it's such a blast to look at photos of times that you may have forgotten! :)
