I managed to mostly do Day 1 yesterday of following the plan...that is until we got invited out for supper! So today, I will start again. I did feel good though knowing that I followed the plan as closely as possible for the best part of the day and I felt good. Learning to go with the flow and not letting the circumstances mess with my attitude is all part of feeling healthy. Today is a new day.
Garry and I accomplished lots from the "to do" list yesterday also. We got the lower cabinets all built and they are now in place. The toe kick still needs to be installed and the counter top, but it's looking great. We got the patio blocks moved and the fire pit set up on the blocks...so fire regulations are met. Now we can sit around a lovely fire outside this fall as the weather gets cooler. It is a fire pit that we can actually cook on also, so I'm set if the need ever arises *grin*.
Did some baking yesterday also. I used up the fruit pulp that was left over from juicing and made some fruit loaves, which I now have vacuum sealed and in the freezer. Popped one of the loaves off to the girls for them to enjoy. I'm thinking that I might even make batches of cookie dough, roll the dough into log shapes, and put them into vacuum sealed bags and into the freezer too. Then closer to Christmas, all I will have to do is pull whatever roll of dough I want out, thaw, cut the log and bake. Voila! cookies . Can you tell that I am having fun with my new Food Saver machine????
Many things accomplished on the "to do" list .
A nice long chat with my brother. He and his wife are attending the Uranium City reunion that we had wanted to attend. It was fun to catch up on news of people that we haven't seen for many years.
I think that Fall is becoming one of my favorite times of the year...doing all this preserving and filling my freezer with things for the coming winter is rather an exciting thing. It's such a feeling of satisfaction, knowing that my family will have healthy things to eat during the winter.
A new day to be alive and open to blessings and opportunities that the Universe brings my way.
Have a wonderful day, be excited about your day.
