Monday...Monday - come on let's sing it now...

Monday, January 20, 2014

It’s been a GOOD Monday - other than COMPUTER ISSUES emoticon Brother it’s like slow mode, or rather like I've regressed backward to the old form of DIAL UP EEEKKKK emoticon

Woke early as I had a phone JOB interview, felt went well. Should receive a call back by end of week or 1st of next - we shall see. emoticon

I’m thrilled to have gotten in my 10,000+ steps before 3 pm today. (20 for 20 and still rock'n) This means I’m in for the night as they are talking BONE CHILLING temperatures until 10 am tomorrow. But they also forcasted emoticon again by 4 pm and nothing yet!

I have been wanting to make a soup recipe I found a week ago. FINALLY soup is on the stove! I’ll call ya when dinner is ready emoticon Pretty simple really - 3 cups leeks (green onions) thinly sliced - both white & green parts; Potatoes peeled and chopped. Of course I CANNOT do a recipe with out changing it up a bit so I also added in a sweet potato in as well. Then add in salt, white pepper, and 5 cups water to cover vegetables. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 1 hr - should be done by 6 pm emoticon After the hour mixture is placed in blender until velvety smooth and WA-LAH - soup's ready! But the truth will be told in the taste, so I may need to add in some additional spices to tweak this recipe before I post it to SP.

OKAY - hold that thought…dogs barking, has to go out so here goes another 10 minute SPARK - emoticon Now its just a habit that whenever I take her out I have to keep my feet moving for at least 10 minutes. And if she can’t withstand the weather outside for that long, then I continue on in the house until I've completed my emoticon SPARK! emoticon

So up goes the garage door and WHAT… here comes that darn emoticon they were forecasting. Guess I’ll be getting in my steps tomorrow by shoveling again emoticon Happy to report that I completed another 10+ SPARK - emoticon and now patiently waiting on soup!! emoticon
