SUMMER'S OVER and CIRCUS PEANUTS
Monday, August 10, 2009
Well, summer is over for me. I went back to work today at the new elementary school that will be opening in just one week - lots of things to get ready!
Ironically, Saturday and Sunday were some of the hottest days we've had this summer, and DH and I ended up in the pool both days.
This afternoon, severe weather blew through, and we got pelted with quarter-size hailstones. I haven't looked yet to see if my truck was damaged (sitting in the driveway). It really tore up my garden plants, but hopefully, I will still get some fresh tomatoes.
I haven't blogged for awhile. My Spark journey is somewhat stalled out. I keep losing and regaining about 3-5 pounds, which is very frustrating. I'm getting in my cardio but not my strength training, which I know is important. I've done quite well with eating healthier, but have an occasional sweet tooth attack! One day I started craving "circus peanuts" candy - weird! It didn't go away, so I looked for some when I got gas at the station; they didn't have any, so I thought "good, I didn't need it". But the craving continued for over a week, so I broke down and bought some at the grocery store. You know what? They weren't that good! LOL!
