I bought some Oreos this weekend, I need to quit giving into my daughter's cravings. I only like one type though, so that's a good thing. The bad thing is that I bought that flavor.
I immediately ate an entire section of those yummy "inside out" Oreos. An hour later I ate the second section. I think I ended up eating all but four of them.
It doesn't surprise me that I'm up about a pound from that encounter. I was actually down a little from what my tracker currently says, now I'm up about half a pound.
Fortunately I did also stock up my kitchen with all sorts of fruits and veggies that were on sale this weekend. I specifically made two trips so I could hit up both sales (sales start on Sunday). I'm looking forward to making that cucumber vinegar salad that was advertised yesterday on the home page. I am currently slow cooking a vegetarian chili with black and white beans instead of red kidney beans.
It was nice enough to take a walk around the park this morning, so I did two laps! Take that Oreos! Since I'm upset at those cookies, I'm also in full spring cleaning mode and plan on getting rid of the mold that likes to grow in the windows and perhaps floors will be cleaned today also!
I planted some potatoes in a pot this weekend, I'm looking forward to a new plant in my container garden. This summer will also have a new corn hybrid so I can do several in my pots. If only the snow would melt and stay gone! It's really pushing back the growing season, I fear it will be a very short season this year.
Once the ground is ready, I am also allowed to plant at my mother's place. I convinced her to start a garden again, I will help. I've been itching to start that garden, but know it won't happen until next month. We can grow bigger things in a large backyard.
I mistakenly said yesterday was Earth Day, sorry I got the date wrong, today is. Because of it being Earth Day, this week, April 22-26, you can get into the National Parks for Free! So try out one of those parks you have always wanted to visit, but couldn't afford the entrance fee. There are several other dates you can get into for free too: www.nps.gov/findapark/fe
Another good freebie, bring your own mug and get a free coffee at Caribou. Find a few other free things at this site: www.creativecouponing.co
Today's other holidays: Girl Scout Leader Day and National Jelly Bean day. Take your jelly beans in moderation!
