Why Do Weekends Go By So Fast?
Sunday, January 05, 2014
Good grief! This weekend has just flown by! It's been a really productive and nice weekend, though. As you know from yesterday's blog, I got a lot of gardening done.
Today, I gave myself a break and relaxed a while. I made breakfast (oatmeal!) and lounged around until about 11:30 a.m., and then did about 1/2 hour of hilling up in the garden. I also, drum roll please, did a full 30 minutes on my Treadclimber today! Woohoo! After that, I went to visit my friend, Trisha, for coffee, and the obligatory Walgreen's stop for dog treats.
The day was perfect - sunny and mild, low humidity, high of 81 degrees.....Tomorrow, well, high of 68 degrees, and a low of 31 degrees early Tuesday morning - Guess I'll be getting out the sheets to cover the plants! The garden will pretty much have to fend for itself - too big to cover - but most of the veggies are frost resistant. If I lose anything, well, that the risk you take in Florida (or anywhere else for that matter)!
I made a lovely rare roast beef for dinner with mashed potatoes and green beans - My son loves Sunday dinner! Yes, I have managed to stay within my calorie range again today, too. I also discovered a really yummy treat at Walgreen's - Cocoa Dusted Almonds! 150 calories for 1/4 cup - crunchy almonds with just a taste of dark chocolate! I have some snack portion containers and will be portioning out these for snacks this week!
I best get at it - I've got a bunch to do before bedtime tonight. First thing is another glass of water!
