Things I Like


Chilly riding

I woke up all excited to bike to breakfast this morning.  The high today was supposed to be almost 70 degrees!  However, that doesn’t mean that it will be 70 degrees at 7:30 am.  More like half that, plus fog LOL.  It was a coooooold ride to breakfast:

That is 2 degrees warmer than when we left the house, too. I am okay above 40, but this was a bit chilly even for me.  I was ready for some coffee and a bagel.  They were out of wheat bagels (again), so I got poppyseed.

Not many seeds on this bagel.  John called it a Poppy Lite  :mrgreen:

The temp had warmed up into the low 40s by the time we left, but still somewhat foggy.  However, I will take a November bike ride anytime!  12 miles of biking today.

Yesterday’s literacy tutor training was good.  It is a little overwhelming and I have to read  4 chapters in this book for tomorrow!

Homework! Normally there would be a week between training sessions, but they are trying to cram all the training  in before Thanksgiving. Plus there are 8 people currently waiting for tutors right now! Definitely a need here.  I am really realizing how I take for granted being able to read and write with ease.

I got a late start with work, so I was just trying to plow my way through.  It was a tiring day.  I took my lunch break with some of the chicken I cooked up the other day.

Thank you for precooked stuff and planning ahead.

Both of us were busy today.  Wednesday truly was hump day.  And snack day.  I made up almond milk lattes:

and I had a piece of pumpkin fudge that I made over the weekend.  I haven’t had any since Sunday because it has some corn syrup and I was grain free Monday and Tuesday.  It’s good stuff, but time consuming to make.

Pixie is always interested in what I am doing – the nut.

I snacked a bit while cooking dinner.  Feeling a little tired and that got me snacking on some potato chips and Nut Thins.  I should have precooked lentils and it would have avoided that problem.  I did have brown rice that I had in the freezer along with some of my caramelized onion stash.  I pan sauteed the broccoli, then tossed in a scoop of onions, brown rice and lentils and heated through.

This was good and full of fiber LOL!

Today was just such a gorgeous day.  Like September.  I took a walk after dinner because it was so nice.  Dark, though.   I put John’s blinking bike light onto my jacket for safety.  I don’t know if that  that really works, but I felt safer at any rate – and I rocked out with Journey on my walk!

Someone in our house who is not a music lover is Pixie. She was sitting on the piano tonight when John sat down to play:

You can almost hear her thoughts –  “What the hell is that noise?”  She didn’t stay long.

Well, I have a date with some candy corn and my homework for tomorrow’s training class.
