Ginger Peach tea..

Friday, January 07, 2011

Hi..welcome to my blog :) Just relaxing with a little pot of ginger peach tea. I've had a full and productive day :) One job I did was to organize my teas..I took them all out of the boxes and put in ziplock bags..labelled and filed in a basket. I discovered I have over 20 assorted types of tea..good thing I've started to drink it daily. And speaking of drinking I've been drinking water out of a quart sealer/gem jar..if I drink 2 to 3 of them it's 8 to 12 cups :) some times I put slices of frozen lemon, lime or oranges in it for a bit of flavor. I also have some sliced cucumber in the freezer but haven't tried that yet.

I did my 30 mins on my bike and day 3 of 28 day boot camp and st...then hubby came in for coffee and we played crib..I actually got dealt four 5's and hubby cut a 10 on top :) best hand I ever had..then couldn't remember what 4 of a kind counted so dug out rule book and discovered desk junk drawer needed dejunking bad!! Couldn't close it after digging the book out. So after coffee I got that cleaned out..and found a put that on.

After lunch..I had a tuna wrap again :)...we went outside to work on the wood for the stove..I shovelled the deck off, brought in some saw dust for fire starters, helped carry wood into the wood shed (old chicken chickens here anymore) for hubby to cut up and them hauled a large load on the calf sled to the house. Meanwhile I had about 5,000 steps on pedometer :) then I bumped it and it cancelled out so I started it's at 6,500 now so that's 11,500 from about 11 am on. Hubby went to town for the mail, etc. while I took down the last of the Christmas decorations and shoved my tree into spare room closet :) Then vacuumed and tidied. I had turkey soup for supper..I made a huge pot and have been eating it all week :) It's been helping me keep my calories low and still feel full. Now what kind of huge pot of soup should I make next week? We have some leftover roast beef so I think I'll do a beef, veggie and tomato one :)...

I've been doing some blog reading and found some yummy food ideas and web sites to go to...

I'm really glad so many of you commented on my oatmeal blog from yesterday..I especially liked the brownie oatmeal suggestion..cocoa and walnuts.yum yum!!

Well I'm finished my little pot of tea. So I should sign off for now..Thanks for dropping by for tea and a chat..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna

    Sounds like you had a very good and busy day. You did get alot done including work and exercise.
    So what's up for the weekend? I think you should treat yourself and your hubby to a fun time. You both work so hard.
    It's so cold here tonight we have a fire going. I think I also need to make some tea.

    Sounds like a fairly productive day! That`s awesome!! I was looking at a few pedometers today...the only expirience I`ve ever had with them was this one that McDonalds was giving out way back when salads were new to the menu. It counted steps when u were just moving but not actually touchy do you find the pedometer? Can you walk 20 counted steps and have it read roughly or exactly 20 steps?? Cuz I know a trackable number, especially one like 11500, would be a huge motivator!!
