Vacation time!

Monday, September 03, 2012

Besides a morning meeting on Wednesday, I'm on VACATION!!

I'm taking the next couple of days to prepare for our last camping trip of the year. I'm also hitting a milestone at the end of this vacation week.

Yes -- I decided to celebrate around a campfire. At least this trip won't have temps exceeding 100!

I am going to celebrate this week, but I'm also going to be aware of what I'm doing as well. I have spent part of today working on menus for our trip. I'm looking forward to a little R&R and to spend some time with family. (My brother's family is camping with us)

Otherwise today was a bit of a lazy Sunday. Actually took time this morning to read the newspaper and sip on coffee. Have a couple of full days on Monday and Tuesday to get ready so I'll be heading to bed soon.

Haven't hit my step goal yesterday or today, but I'm getting in more than I have been. I'll keep pushing myself.

Tried a new recipe for a spicy burger soup that was actually more like a goulash. It had a lot of tomatoes with chiles in it. Was a bit too spicy for my taste and I like spicy foods. If I make it again, I'll use garlic and basil chopped tomatoes. It was filled with peppers, celery, onions, and tomatoes.

Well, off to la la land -- or the land of nod (nodding off that is!)

Good night dear friends.

    I have to admit. This cake does not exist in my world. I found this pic online and it covered both topics do I borrowed it. It would be a cool cake though. I am ordering a special cake for my big 50 so I'm hoping lots of people come out so we don't have leftovers.
